There’s an uber-artsy depth-of-field football shot…

… but one isn’t enough! And lest you think the fact that these bleachers don’t have an existing football on them will prove to be some sort of an issue…

… even at similar yet different angles…

… because Jordan used to play football professionally and his brother Aaron, the elephant in the room because Jordan doesn’t talk to (or want to talk about) him, is a famous football player. GET IT? FOOTBALLS.

And why respect a family’s private social dynamics when you can make that elephant in the room even more elephantine…

...by adding two spare seats at the dinner table, even though every other meal, conversation, and seating arrangement ever on this show leaves that side open?

Finally, a serious tidbit…

Something about the way Jojo says the above to Jordan (in addition to the choice of words) speaks volumes. She’s basically talking like she knows she’s going to pick him, like he knows she knows she’s going to pick him, and like she knows he knows that she knows she's going to pick him. It would take some serious come-from-behind action on one of the other guys’ parts to make me think it’s anyone but Jordan at the end of this.

ROBBY'S HOMETOWN

Jojo heads to St. Augustine, FL for Robby's Hometown. I know I’ve been a bit hard on Robby, but as I’ve said multiple times over the past 2+ years that I've been writing these, it bothers me when someone doesn’t behave authentically (or least, in a way that’s believable) because it totally screws up the natural progression of a relationship. I'm not saying Robby isn't authentic (I don't presume to know), but I personally feel (and judging by your comments, so do you) that he's too good to be true. Yes, he's super handsome and well put-together and doesn't talk bad about anyone. But it's human things like reticence and apprehension (Chase), humor and self-deprecation (Luke), and being misunderstood or not given the benefit of the doubt (Jordan) that make a person relatable and likable.
Back to the natural progression (or lack thereof) of relationships, Jojo basically admits that it's because of Robby’s premature ILY (while shocking and even scary at the time) that their relationship catapulted forward…

… THE ESSENCE of which is wrong. But I’ll delve into that in a bit.

There’s another Pick-up…

It's like a game of Spot the Difference!
Notice the hair length, the makeup, the lack of jewelry, the background, and even the lighting/quality in the pick-up. It’s clearly the same session as the Pick-up above (and by the looks of it, it was a productive one).

And finally, after the drama with Robby’s ex’s roommate’s alleged shit disturbance (which I covered on Flare), Jojo justifies why she trusts Robby…

My issue with Jojo and Robby as a couple is that there is no specific reason they seem into each other, because as I said over at Flare, they never use any words to describe it. And, unlike her relationship with say, Jordan, there's no natural chemistry jumping out at the screen at me (rendering words unnecessary). As far as I, the viewer, can tell they’re a match to the extent that Robby’s insanely effusive (to the point where it feels blind, premature, and even—due to the circumstances—calculated) and Jojo is, by her own admission both last season and in Episode 2, a person who seeks and responds to Words of Affirmation. (Yes, of those 5 Love Languages.) In that sense alone, it’s a match made in Heaven. BUT. This isn’t dating roulette! Just because a guy says he loves you doesn’t mean a) that he means it (again, especially in this scenario… and it may not even come from a malicious place; it could easily come from a place of circumstantial cluelessness), and b) that you’re required to love him back. As I said in one of my dating columns, talk is cheap. And since it’s hard to let actions speak louder than words in such a controlled, contrived environment, we need specificity to differentiate WHAT makes this relationship in particular special and believable. WHY does Robby love Jojo, especially as early as the first date? ADJECTIVES ARE OUR FRIENDS.
Compare the above to when Chase, at the end of his Hometown, told Jojo he loved her. Her response: "You never say things like that, that's how I know you mean it." It was a moment where talk, because it had been used so selectively, was anything but cheap. It's for these reasons that, for the millionth time, I'm just not buying whatever it is Robby's selling.
Is it possible the specificity I crave ended up on the editing room floor? Possibly (I can admit that) but unlikely, considering how powerful and valuable it'd be. Okay, rant over.

LUKE'S HOMETOWN

In Burnet, TX, Luke drives Jojo to their destination, a huge family-and-friends-because-friends-are-family BBQ. The producers behind making the B-roll of the truck turning off the road, however, couldn't even be bothered to find a long-haired female volunteer to sit in the passenger's seat, which might've made this somewhat believable...

Luke's Dad Chat was oh-so-cute. When his dad said the following with complete sincerity and a thick Southern drawl, I basically melted...

To talk about the next part I have to address the Rose Ceremony. I get that there was a huge build-up to Luke "opening up" and saying ILY, but focusing on that as the reason for Jojo considering axing him is wrong. After all, did he not just say...

(I couldn't for the life of me catch what Jojo said here.)

... and...

?
I try not to repeat myself with what I write at Flare, but this is really an issue of semantics. I don't for a second think Jojo didn't feel loved or appreciated by Luke. If she really was planning on sending him home at that Rose Ceremony (which I now doubt because they aired her saying it), I can't help but think it would be for reasons like compatibility or sense of humor, or something else we can't get the gist of through a television screen. I don't know; I'm just throwing out examples... I thought these two were strong. :/

ROSE CEREMONY

Besides the fancy airplane hangar, there's not much to add here. Both Andy and I totally felt Luke's interruption was staged or at the very least producer-pushed, probably under the guise of encouraging Luke that he should get a damn ILY off his chest. Guess we'll have to tune in Monday to see what happens.

Ха, оказывается не одна я подозревала в этом Робби :rolleyes:, но он реально пиарит себя в социальных сетях!
Так что пожалуй присоеденюсь к Шарлин и Максу со своим недоверием... :meeting:
Но, блин, кто же уйдет в понедельник? Неужели все же Люк? :ph34r:
