Sharleen Joynt on The Bachelorette: Men Tell All

Another season, another one of my favourite episodes, the Tell All. Oh, how I love to see the choices contestants make after watching themselves on television. I love spying the subtle and not-so-subtle changes to their appearances (hello, spray tans and suddenly hot “hipster” Brandon),

which battles they choose to pick (or all of them, à la Alex), and who seems to get a disproportionate amount of airtime considering their showing on the actual season (not so Saintly Nick B).
As I’ve mentioned before, with the power and monetization of social media and the direct correlation between airtime and followers, Tell All episodes carry a whole different meaning. (I don’t like repeating myself, so in case you missed last season’s Tell All recap where I discuss this, it’s worth reading.) On the whole, how folks behave on their Tell All is so… telling.

3. Well-spoken Wells

I was already a Wells fan, but his showing last night made me a James S-calibre “superfan.” I don’t agree with guys always piping in with their two cents (especially when said guys aren’t directly involved in the conflict in question), but when your two cents are as sound and eloquently put as Wells’, it’s allowed. While the rest of the guys scoffed at Chad’s claims that he was “getting shit-talked 24/7, night and day, in front of 10 million people watching,” Wells didn’t deny it, which made his ultimate point more credible: “I’m the first to admit that we kind of Lord of the Flies’d you and Piggy’d you and we definitely went after you… But at the end of the day, it was justified. You said some really f-cked-up things, so it was really justified in the end.” (Extra points for the literary reference!)

When the focus was on Alex’s beef with Derek, Nick B came out of nowhere, guns blazing, calling Alex manipulative, an instigator, and having a Napoleon complex. Wells deftly intercepted the attack and maintained the critical point while wording it so beautifully, it almost sounded like a compliment: “When it comes down to Alex’s predicament, Alex and I are close… He’s a war hero, we should all honour him, but he’s lived the majority of his adult life in conflict. I think that he feels the most comfortable in conflict. [To Alex] I think that’s what happened, is that you vanquished this Neanderthal in the beginning and we praised you for it, and then it’s like, ‘What’s my role now?’”

Best of all, when Chad continued to act like the victim, Wells reminded Chad of how much is still in his power: “The one thing America loves more than tragedy in conflict is that they absolutely love to forgive and to give people a redemptive story. And for you, Chad, I know you get to go and you get to change your perception of everyone by going on Paradise, and I really hope you take that opportunity.” Exactly. If Chad really was so wronged and ganged up on and truly the victim in all this, let him prove it by telling a different tale (like JJ Lane did) on Bachelor in Paradise. Wells put the ball in Chad’s court and held him responsible for his actions from here on out.

2. Ceaseless Chad

While part of me doesn’t want to give Chad anymore attention than he’s already received, it’s impossible to discuss this episode without talking about him. Because, like with the entire first half of this season, we were shown little but Chad. When Chad wasn’t onstage, he and his security guard and his meat platter were being referenced. When he was onstage, it was for WAY too long considering his role on the season. And when he sat with the guys, we were sure to be shown his every smirk and eye roll.

First, the positives. I’m the first to admit Chad is entertaining. There’s no doubt about that. For someone like Andy, a non-avid viewer of this show (he wouldn’t watch if I didn’t rope him into it), Chad completely changed the appeal of the show and singlehandedly made it something Andy wanted to watch. Even for me, someone who takes the show semi-seriously and loves to dissect its ins and outs, Chad is indisputably entertaining. As for his claims that he was a victim, I don’t underrate the negative attention he seemed to have received as being some sort of provocation for him to act up. It’s a difficult environment in which to co-exist even when you do have friends.

Also, amidst his constant stream of insults, Chad does drop a serious truth bomb here and there. (I’ve mentioned my agreement over a few of his early statements.) Last night, he insinuated JoJo sent him home because she knew he was the “bad guy” and didn’t want to be that Bachelorette who keeps the “bad guy” around. While I don’t think this necessarily applies to JoJo (thanks to her glorious transparency, it was clear she was pretty repulsed by him in the end), there is definite truth to that statement. How many Bachelors and Bachelorettes have been vilified for keeping the Tierras and Courtneys and Bentleys and Wes(es?)? It would stand to reason that a lead would send the villain home just for fear of such judgment. For his blatant, brutally honest truths, Chad deserves a modicum of praise.

But that’s where the positives and my Chad praise ends. What was disturbing to me last night was how praising of Chad the audience was. I get finding him amusing, but having #Chadchelor shirts made and cheering at his every move is not an appropriate reaction for someone who was so consistently offensive and violent. It’s hard to imagine no audience member there had ever posted some Bully Awareness Month Instagram post, yet they all laughed at every insult Chad hurled. Chad isn’t a sitcom character; he’s a real person and those are real people he’s disrespecting and shaming. That shouldn’t earn him fans.

On the whole, whether or not Chad is as bad as he seemed and whether or not he deserved being “poked,” Grant said it best: “When 20 guys have a problem with you, you’re the one with the problem.”

1. Joelle of Arc

From what I understand, the Tell All episode can be pretty intimidating for the lead. While you may think you’ve left your guys on as good terms as possible, it’s hard to know how the past few months of sudden fame or less-than-flattering edits have changed things, or how producers might have fanned the flames of bitterness. But from beginning to end and top to bottom, JoJo was a class act. She was considerate but strong, remembered details about every guy (even Night One-r Jonathan), did her best to explain herself (without resorting to stock answers), and admitted she may not have done everything “right.” That kind of modest and self-aware hindsight is not to be underestimated; too many people, especially those in her highly-scrutinized position, would be too defensive and proud to admit that, frankly, they had no idea what they were doing. Last but not least, JoJo’s smackdown of Chad after he insulted both of her final two men was epic. After way too many minutes of the guys arguing with Chad, interrupting and being interrupted by Chad, and just generally getting huffy over Chad, JoJo mic-dropped Chad-gate in its entirety by not engaging with him. She summed him up (accurately!) with: “He loves this. This is what he wants. He loves the attention and we’re giving it to him. So he’s not even worth my breath.” Her guys, the audience, and all of us at home cheered.

IT’S ONE OF THE MOST ROMANTIC AND DRAMATIC NIGHTS EVER ON ABC, ON THE THREE-HOUR LIVE SEASON FINALE EVENT OF ‘THE BACHELORETTE,’ MONDAY, AUGUST 1

And Immediately Following the Exciting Season Finale, JoJo, Jordan and Robby Look Back at the Emotional Ending to Their Journey to Find Love, LIVE, on “The Bachelor: After the Final Rose”

“Episode 1210 – Season Finale – JoJo survived being blindsided last season after Ben Higgins told her he loved her, but proposed to Lauren Bushnell instead. As heart-wrenching a rejection as that was, she decided to take a risk for a second chance at finding love with one of 26 intriguing bachelors. After surviving shocking twists and turns and a journey filled with laughter, tears, love and controversy, JoJo narrowed down the field to two men – Jordan

Now, she finds herself in love with both of these captivating men and terribly torn between them. She can envision a future with both bachelors, but time is running out, on the season finale of “TheBachelorette”.
With a possible proposal just days away, JoJo introduces both men to her family in Phuket, Thailand, looking for any guidance they can offer her on which would be the best fit for her and the family.

When Jordan arrives, JoJo’s mom has some reservations. She feels they might be too similar and fears that could spell trouble down the line. Will Jordan even ask her father for permission to marry his daughter if he is the last man?
The Fletchers, however, immediately connect with Robby. His poise, passion and adoration of JoJo leaves a lasting impression on them. His conversation with her parents seals the deal with them.

But where does that leave JoJo? She is stunned by their opinions of the two men. Still struggling over her choice, JoJo hopes that her final dates with Jordan and Robby bring clarity to what seems like an impossible decision.

Now, she finally understands what Ben was facing in the days before his engagement.
The final days of JoJo’s journey are filled with questions.

Or will she simply walk away? Will one guy get the woman of his dreams or be left brokenhearted?

Aug 1
Episode 9
Sharleen Joynt

Sorry for the delay, dear readers! I'm still on my European adventure (since last week's recap I've been to Prague, Nuremberg, and Paris) and am sending this one out from the Eurostar train between Paris to London. I happen to think this is a pretty good excuse for tardiness. Enjoy! x

"When did falling in love become so hard?" —Jojo

We pick up with last week's Rose Ceremony, where Jojo was shown saying she was planning on sending Luke home, which naturally makes you think she's not sending him home but—PSYCH—she actually did. The way Luke looks at Jojo, it’s like a combination of sadness, anger, and wondering if he ever even knew her at all...

They may look impatient, but they’ve likely been waiting for ages. I don’t know a single contestant who ever enjoyed Rose Ceremonies, and it’s not for the reasons you think. Even if you’re completely confident or already have a rose, the amount of standing and waiting can become so extreme it begins to feel disrespectful. Rose Ceremonies are the ultimate test of patience.

ROBBY'S DATE

In Thailand, Robby and Jojo wander around a market, with voiceovers of Robby gushing about his feelings for Jojo. He says Jojo hasn't told him she loves him but that he knows she does because...

It may seem like I'm nitpicking, but I don't think physical interactions can or do solely represent love. I know I've been on Robby's case about this, but I could really use some REAL REASONS as to why he loves Jojo and why he thinks she loves him. For example, with Andy, I have never felt more understood in my life. Every ball I throw—whether it be a joke, an under-your-breath remark, or a barely-there eyebrow raise—he catches. We see eye-to-eye on all the big things like politics and religion, but can commiserate over minor pet peeves like overcooked eggs and slow walkers. I can be my weirdest, goofiest, most natural self with him and vice versa. I think he's very possibly the funniest person I've ever met and I laugh with him more than I have with anyone, man or woman, ever. Yes, we're super attracted to each other (despite originally not really being either's usual "type") and the compatibility's more than perfect in the "passion" department, but those are not things that I'd choose to lead with. I believe the intimacy works as well as it does because our understanding of each other is airtight, not the other way around. I'm not sharing these rather personal details to gloat or to sound like I'm on some soapbox. My point is that we, the viewers, never seem to get specificity when it comes to Robby and Jojo, FROM EITHER PARTY. ComAt this point I’m actually impressed at how Robby can use so many words and yet say nothing at all...

And it goes both ways...

What else does Robby offer other than attraction and effusiveness? What exactly is “all that”? His Words of Affirmation hold too much power in her perception of him. It’s too much about how he feels about her, how much he loves her. How does SHE feel about HIM? And WHY?
