As David is left alone in the desert for the requisite aerial shots of him looking (supposedly) heartbroken, we get an awesome Direct-Look-Into-Camera™ where we see him notice the camera (I assume it's pretty far away and really zoomed in) with deep annoyance...

And finally, as per my husband's request, I made a .GIF of the following...

You guys may remember that at the beginning of the season Andy and I had a debate over whether or not Jordan was "in" on his character or if he really was as insanely un-self aware as he comes across. Not to give him an I-told-you-so, but Andy has finally come around and agreed with me (and most of you, since most of you agreed with me!) that Jordan is not some pro-level comedian playing a caricature on TV.
Jordan, you will be missed! Easily this season's most quotable.

ROSE CEREMONY

The Rose Ceremony is pretty much the Chris-spiraling-out-of-control show. Interesting that word got to Becca that he had threatened to leave but we never saw footage of that. At any rate, note how we're shown TWO different ITMs to show Becca's point of view on the matter (pay attention to the backgrounds)...

Later, when Chris interrupts Wills for "2 minutes" and is told his time's up, I seriously could not stop laughing and rewound this several times, just watching Becca's face. Remember, Becca is fully IN POWER here and she can make whatever happen, however she wants. If she wanted to keep talking to Chris, she could EASILY ask Wills to come back later. The way Becca's just looking out as though she's not even listening, and especially the moment where Chris looks at Becca as if to say, "Can't you do anything about this??" and she just blinks blankly back at him seriously had me in stitches...

The above says it all: Becca is (understandably) NOT into Chris anymore and it's over. She would way rather hang out with Wills. Chris may have scraped through to Episode 6 but that was mainly (if not solely) because he's really good at rubbing others the wrong way.

Finally, the following screenshot (no .GIF necessary!) says it all. What says "dependable life partner" more than a guy who mutters the following the second he doesn't get his way?

Finally, Chris Harrison arrives to ding his glass and inform the men that it's Rose Ceremony time. Note where John is sitting when he approaches (as well as his somewhat-smiling face), yet how when Chris Harrison says "it's that time", we suddenly see John looking morose (read: bored and tired) and with a man suddenly on his left...

We had to be spoon-fed that John had something to worry about, because #foreshadowing. Despite not seeing nearly enough of you, we'll miss you, Venmo John!

“It’s Clearly a Race Between These Two Men:” Sharleen Joynt on Episode 5 of The Bachelorette

I was secretly wondering when (it wasn’t a matter of “if”) the glimmer of righteousness we saw in Chris on Night One would re-rear its ugly head. Remember when he, as the real-life friend of an (alleged) ex of Chase’s, made it his business to out Chase on the mere prospect of #wrongreason motives? (Despite the fact that he’d never met the guy?)

While the gist was to heroically protect Becca from potential phonies, Chris literally (like, #literally) didn’t know Becca yet, which in my books speaks more to a general holier-than-thou-ness than the specific defense of a woman he cares for. (And honestly, it’s not like Becca’s some damsel in distress anyway; I’m convinced not one of these men is more shrewd than she is.) In other words, based on Night One, what I think Chris saw as do-goodery, I saw as getting involved in business that wasn’t his.

Nonetheless, I went from the above Night One first impression to legitimately liking the guy. Personality-wise he’s got great traits: he’s noble, sincere, sensitive. I get the feeling Chris takes the things and people he cares about—including himself—very seriously. But I do think if he tapped into truly being vulnerable—an ability which, contrary to popular belief among proud types, stems from confidence, not weakness—he’d be way more likeable for it. It says something that what won us all over on his 1-on-1 was his vulnerability; the fact that he wrote nice song lyrics would’ve meant zilch if there were no insecurities to overcome in getting there.

I actually think what Chris sought last night was perfectly valid.

His saga tied nicely into what I wrote about last week (TOTALLY meant to do that), about the inequality of the relationship between contestant and lead. From a real-life perspective, Chris was well within his right to seek and expect certain action from Becca to make him feel special. Last night he said, “Becca needs to win me over. She needs to show me something that says ‘Chris I want you here,’ that she sees potential in me.” First, this is more than fair. For all the talk about partnership and “50/50,” this lines up perfectly. Second, I think if the genders were reversed, we’d be applauding the female contestant for being a strong, self-assured woman who knows her worth.

Unfortunately, this is where the me-agreeing-with-Chris-thing comes to a screeching halt. While his argument for wanting to feel singled out and special makes sense, his execution was a disaster. At every turn, Chris would make reasonable statements but then insist on following them up with various versions of, “… OR ELSE I’M LEAVING.”

Nooooo, Chris! Not only is that petulant and childish, it negates everything you’ve claimed about wanting to stay. You really like Becca and can honestly see a future with her? Then not getting your way ONCE shouldn’t affect that. Chris’s pride was so obviously (and easily!) wounded, he recoiled like a 5th grader whose Valentine’s Day gesture wasn’t reciprocated. When he didn’t get what he expected and felt he deserved, he felt hurt and embarrassed (which already is too strong a reaction, given the social experiment and communal girlfriend circumstances). That embarrassment in what I suspect was his knee-jerk reaction quickly turned into anger, which turned into him wanting to punish Becca for causing these feelings, which turned into threats to leave.

This is where my other issue with Chris comes in: despite the ample opportunity to pinpoint and verbalize why he couldn’t lose Becca and had to stay, he consistently made it about what Becca would be missing out on if he left. On the night of Group Date he said, “There’s no doubt in my mind that I’m great for Becca,” and, “If I went home tonight Becca would definitely regret it. She would miss out on an amazing best friend and future partner.”

At the Rose Ceremony he said, “She would be losing such an amazing guy with so much potential, that is truly dedicated to being not only her man but a best friend and amazing husband.”

Believe it or not, despite the unflattering edit he got this week, it was these statements—words we saw come out of his mouth—that soured my taste for Chris. It’s hard to buy his sincere interest in Becca when his words about her (and his need to stay to pursue her) feel so generalized, à la “I really like her.” Meanwhile, he’s proved he can be specific, but only when emphasizing how great a partner he would be and what she would be missing out on if he were to leave. Those words wouldn’t sound foreign coming out of narcissist Jordan’s mouth, but at least Jordan is entertaining about it.

Finally, it’s impossible (for me, anyway!) to honestly talk about Chris spiraling out of control without pointing out the fact that there IS rhyme and reason to who speaks with Becca and when, and much of it is controlled in the wings. I’ve mentioned before that almost never does a contestant really march up to the lead mid-conversation with someone else and interrupt. You get permission to interrupt, and are usually given the green light when it’s time.

Hell, in my experience, I was only ever escorted to the area where said interruption would occur. When you’re not interrupting for time, it’s when the lead comes to you.

Therefore, given how there really weren’t SO many men on this Group Date (there were nine men total, less than several other Group Dates this season), it’s conspicuous to me that Chris, an obvious ticking time bomb, just so happened to be the one guy there wasn’t time for. Of course, he brought it on himself—he was far too relaxed about seeking Becca out and Blake’s time did go on for awhile—but a part of me does wonder if time could have been made for him but was intentionally not.
