GROUP DATE

This was a cool Group Date but was made extra funny by the girls' commentaries, particularly Becca K's bone dry:

There was also plenty of commentary taken from at least two different Pick-ups of Tia's...

As I mentioned on The Morning After: I was torn on this date between thinking it was a cool experience for the women and finding it a bit exploitative. It's so not as bad as having a bikini tractor race since the costumes were theme-appropriate, but let's be honest: The women learned a dance which they didn't appear to use for any actual purpose save highlighting Tia's discomfort with choreography (the dance wasn't used to perform for a live audience or anything), and they ultimately just took turns catwalking for Arie in outfits exposed enough to warrant black bars...

In the evening, Bekah M's incredulity that other girls' relationships with Arie could be moving as fast as hers...

... once again reminds me of that Roll-A-Ball game. Because while some (probably most) of the relationships certainly aren't progressing as fast as hers seems to be, others definitely are. NO PRESSURE.

Meanwhile, back at the mansion, it turns out Kendall is the unfortunate soul chosen to be pitted against Krystal in this season's dreaded 2-on-1 date. Here we see the truest evidence that Krystal has become far closer with her producer than the other women in the house...

This moment reminds me of some of Courtney's more scathing ITMs from Ben Flajnik's season (which to this day is one of my favorite seasons and if you never saw it it's really worth getting your hands on). Note the casualness with which she says this while reaching for her wine. You can tell she's completely forgotten about the camera. This is a gab session with a friend, and one that is NOT the first. She probably looked forward to these chats to vent about her housemates. Now just imagine what the producer opens and responds with (and has been probably been for awhile) to get Krystal to this point of comfort.

2-ON-1 DATE

At the beginning of this date there was an easy-to-miss but cute example of Arie's humor...

The two girlfriends with whom I watched this episode (Jasmine, Canada's own Bachelorette, and Lucia, my fellow soprano here in La Bohème) and I all laughed at the above so it was deemed .GIF-worthy.

While Krystal and Kendall are pointlessly made to hunt Arie down in an actual maze, we hear a Girl Chat between Tia and Lauren where we get an idea of what Krystal's been feeding the other women with regards to her relationship with Arie...

The above concept that Arie could see their conflict as something that brings them closer sounds precisely how Krystal (not Arie) would sum things up.

In her 1-on-1 time with Arie, Krystal delivers a line so obviously prepared (and non-sense-making) it was positively groan-inducing...

I love how Arie's face goes from completely expressionless to a forced smile while he listens to her. This canned line says a lot about her (she obviously thinks this could come across as spontaneous and even poetic) and you can see him clock it. To me, this is one of the moments where we see that it's already over.

Kendall deserves major props for how she handled Krystal throwing her under the bus to Arie. We got the distinct feeling that she wanted to try to understand Krystal and why she would say what she'd said. What is so frustrating about this exchange is how Krystal can't seem to actually verbalize much of anything when confronted....

My feeling is, if you are going to be that person who talks shit about others and accuses them of not being "ready" (at this point Krystal clearly has taken on that role with gusto), FOR GOD'S SAKE have a reason (even a shitty reason is better than no reason!) filed away for when you're inevitably confronted about it. In general she seems either speechless, as though she didn't have some platitude prepared and can't wing one on the spot, OR she speaks too much, making less and less sense the longer the sentences run on. The following toast she made in the evening portion of this date is a great example of the latter. There are so many WORDS yet ultimately nothing is really said at all:
"[Kendall and I] were just talking about how this journey has been, and talking about the highs and the lows, and... through the thick and through the thin, that really, it's, um... indescribable. Really indescribable, but yet, magical and worth it. Worth all of it. Mm-hmm."
There's so much build-up, with the vague "highs and lows" and "thick and thin", to ultimately being summed up nothing more than "indescribable". Like, why bother saying anything at all?

Another moment that showed Kendall's class was her very polite (almost too polite), "... Yeah" in response to what I think Krystal meant as a moment of intimidation...

Again, what makes Krystal such a fantastic villain is the fact that she clearly thinks she's outsmarting everyone around her. There's a deliciousness, almost an addictiveness to watching her. I think some people found this breakup surprisingly dismissive given her early connection with Arie, but I personally think Arie was done with her from the moment they discussed Bowling-gate in that Fort Lauderdale hotel suite last week. I think he saw it for the major red flag that it was, didn't want to give her a rose last week (he practically called out her name through gritted teeth), and brought her along so that producers could put her on this very 2-on-1.

One thing I did feel was missing here was the final conversation had between Kendall and Arie before he sent Krystal home. This felt like a valuable piece of the puzzle, the nail in Krystal's "journey"'s coffin.
Farewell, Krystal. I for one LOVED her on this season. Truly one of the best villains in Bachelor history!

JACQUELINE'S 1-ON-1

Oh, Jacqueline! This girl is so funny that my biggest takeaway from this 1-on-1 date was just anger we haven't gotten to see more of her...

Sadly, based on airtime alone, it's pretty hard to fathom Jacqueline winning at this point. However, I do appreciate that the fact that Jacqueline is highly intelligent woman pursuing a PhD was addressed as both majorly badass and a real-life obstacle, because it is both.

Look, people ask me all the time if I still sing (this has become a bonafide FAQ) and are generally happy to hear that I still do, that I'm career-driven, that I'm pursuing what I got two degrees studying for, that I didn't change the course of my professional life due to the potential catalyst that is post-Bachelor "fame". But the reality is that my career is difficult for a marriage (I'm on a 5 week gig right now) and it would be a lot easier to have a "normal" job where I live and work in the city where I'm based with my husband. Andy FULLY supports my singing career and would have it no other way, but I'm away from home for several months out of the year. When we do plan on starting a family, something's going to have to give. This is the reality of my career.

It's not quite the same but Jacqueline's situation is similar in that something's got to give. She simply isn't going to up and move her life to Scottsdale for a man, at least not at this point, but he isn't expecting or even wanting her to. And for someone in his position (who has the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be the Bachelor), while her current plans are surely not a deterrent, in having so many relationships to compare and consider, he'd be insane to not at least consider this. This doesn't make him some higher education dream-crushing man who wants a 50s wife to be at his beck and call. It just means he's being realistic. And look, if he felt the most strongly about Jacqueline and they were a perfect match, I'm sure they'd make it work. Again, this is moot as I don't see Jacqueline going to the end of all this. But I still appreciate that this was discussed and shown.

My feeling on this is well expressed in the comments of one of Jacqueline's own Instagram photos. She was asked, "Wondering what you think of [Arie's] comment that your ambition is just another obstacle to get through", as though Arie saw her academic dreams as a bad thing. Jacqueline responded: "Practically speaking it is an obstacle. He would almost certainly have to relocate and start his real estate career over in a new city, and move away from his family. I was surprised by the criticism he received from that comment, because he did indicate he would support me in that."

ROSE CEREMONY

This Rose Ceremony wasn't massively surprising to me. I did raise an eyebrow at Chelsea being sent home since she received that 1-on-1 date rose just last week, but her airtime had left me with the feeling she wouldn't be making it to the end. (In fact, even after her solid 1-on-1, I didn't have her in my Top 4.)

One thing that did stand out here was, when Jenna was sent packing, she made it clear her tears were more about the women than Arie...

Again, this isn't huge (we know by now contestants have higher odds of finding lasting friendships on this show than romantic love) but it was worth capturing as a .GIF since I doubt this would've been shown even a few years ago.

Finally, as Lauren confides in a producer about how strongly she feels for Arie (which really makes me buy their connection, by the way), there's a rare shot of an ITM (in this case, Tia's) in the background...

Arie's blog

As we left Paris, I couldn’t believe just how far we had come. Not too long ago I was standing in the driveway of the mansion, nervous about whether or not I could actually be the Bachelor. Back then, I was worried if I was too old or too gray, or if there was a woman that I’d meet who could be my person.

Now, I had a whole new set of worries. I had hoped being the Bachelor would get easier, but as I quickly learned, every day was new, and each decision was harder than the last.

There were seven women left — seven beautiful, intelligent, interesting women.

Each was wonderful and I could imagine a possible future with all of them. On the other hand, I still had so many questions. How do I know our lives will work together after all this? How do I know if they’re actually ready for me to meet their families? How can I fill my entire bag with Italian red wine?

Before I arrived at our hotel in Tuscany, I spent the day in Florence enjoying the architecture, looking at statues, and eating gelato.

It was nice to get some time to enjoy the city before my week of dates.
