Heading into dinner that night, I hadn’t felt that torn or anxious this entire journey. I didn’t know how I would make the decision to give out that last rose, and I was praying that I would find the clarity and make the right decision. Both Wills and Jason brought different emotions and feelings into the evening. Wills by nature is very open and wears his heart on his sleeve. Jason is much more pragmatic but brings so much charisma and passion to our relationship. I was being pulled in two different directions.

By the end of the night, it came down to who would I still think about if I sent one home. Who could I not see myself without, and who I felt ready to meet their family with. I knew then that it was Jason. But saying goodbye to Wills after all he opened up about was by far the hardest goodbye I’ve had yet.

Wills was someone who I could laugh with, nerd out with and who I felt so comfortable being myself with. He just wasn’t the one for me at the end of this.

While our goodbye was truly heartbreaking, it gives me joy to confirm that ladies… this isn’t the last you’ll
be seeing of him. Yes, Wills is heading to Paradise! To all my girlfriends who will be heading to Mexico this summer, keep your eyes out for Wills, he’s one of the good ones!

Up to this point, The Bahamas had been my favorite week of the journey because I felt like the drama was FINALLY behind us and I was truly able to focus on romance and the future. But as one might predict, I’m just a little too quick to assume drama is behind me for good.

Four families open their homes to me, but not everybody is ready to welcome me to the family.

Next week, I find myself defending my relationships to potential in-laws while making the hardest decision yet of saying goodbye to one more amazing man.

But the biggest shock is that Tia comes back to drop a bomb that shakes up the entire foundation of my relationship with Colton.

Trust me, you won’t want to miss a moment of it. Colton, Garrett, Blake, Jason … off to your hometowns we go!
Thanks for reading and until next week!
xoxx,
Becca

Sharleen's blog
Episode 7
“I thought she cared about me like I cared about her.”
—Wills, pinpointing what is probably the most important—and most difficult—aspects of being the lead

Our pre-Hometowns week takes us to the Bahamas, where the men are flown all the way out only to be trapped in a hotel room for most of their stay. Becca kicks off the week with plenty of admiring-the-Bahamas B-rolls, including a quick but distinct Direct-Look-Into-Camera™...

On the balcony of their beautiful prison, Blake clarifies in an ITM (most likely in response to a producer prompt) where exactly he falls on the "Falling In Love" scale, that arbitrary thing I've bitched and moaned about...

Naturally, since...
Blake is unabashedly expecting that 1-on-1 (it has been the longest since his first one) and there's potential for him to start unraveling

The date activity revolves around conch "pistol", the Viagra of the Bahamas, making it custom-built for Colton The Virgin
... Blake obviously doesn't get the date. Notice what he says and how the dig at Colton is clearly Frankenbitten in there as a voiceover...

Is it just me, or did Garrett say the line about Colton...?? Not only does it simply sound like Garrett's voice, it's also the speed at which Garrett speaks. Blake is a fast-talker and mumbler (believe me, I become familiar with stuff like this after many, many .GIF makings), while Garrett is a slow and measured talker. When I listen to that I can't hear anything but Garrett. Maybe I'm crazy and losing my mind... let me know what you guys hear.

COLTON'S 1-ON-1

Colton's date is every bit as ripe for the sex joke making as you'd expect...

... and after an ITM where Becca said, "We have so much chemistry and passion, that he could just pick me up and do... whatever! Whatever he wants to do.", it's naturally time for Colton to drop the anvil that is his virginity on our unsuspecting Bachelorette. I mentioned this on The Morning After, but I was immediately struck by Becca's expression on hearing that he wasn't sure his father knew. Her expression to me reads as knowing Colton was probably coaxed into revealing this on national television and feeling a bit sick/concerned/sad about it...

Think about it: While Colton was no doubt told by producers that he REALLY had to tell Becca this information for full discloser's sake, there was no reason why this couldn't have waited for the Fantasy Suite (should he make it there), where sex doesn't always happen (cough, Sean Lowe, cough) and it's really just private, camera-free time. I'm not saying this is something he should hide or be ashamed of, but if so few people know that your DAD doesn't know, maybe you're not 100% ready to reveal this on national television.

Anyway, during a drawn out segment where Becca excuses herself to think (I truly felt her thinking time was more about her feeling bad about—and less about feeling shocked or disarmed by—the revelation), we get ITMs of Colton being scared shitless...

... and after she returns and gives him the rose, this is what his ITM looks like...

Zero percent chance this wasn't the exact same ITM session. Look at the identical creasing in his shirt on the left shoulder and sleeve! In other words, Colton expressing fear, worry, and doubt was all after he'd already gotten the rose, and then they just slapped that rose on him and he then expressed joy and relief. The power of talking in the present tense.

GARRETT'S 1-ON-1

While Blake stews over being passed over for a 1-on-1 again, Becca takes Garrett out in a seaplane for a aerial view of the islands. Claudia wrote me about this seaplane, as she read a rumor that it was painted with Tia's name before Becca was crowned Bachelorette, revealing this season really was meant to be Tia's...

As titillating as that scandal would have been, TIA stands for Trans Island Airways, the seaplane company that likely comped this date activity in exchange for the above shot of their logo. Which makes the whole thing a giant coincidence. Shucks! That said, I am forever impressed with the observational and speculatory skills of the people who take to the forums to dissect this stuff.

I had to make a .GIF of the following moment as it sums up PERFECTLY what I've harped on about for years, how a substantial amount of the excitement and disappointment associated with going or not going on dates has as much (or more) to do with being trapped inside a beautiful hotel in a new country you're dying to explore...

I'm not saying Jason and Blake don't want to spend the day with Becca. I happen to believe they both sincerely do. But imagine HOW MUCH WORSE that FOMO is made by the fact that they are not allowed to leave their hotel suite for DAYS on end. It is almost certain that since arriving in The Bahamas, they have been limited to their suite, possibly allowed to go to the hotel gym daily (and with an escort) if there isn't one in their living space, and not even given a key to their own suite (to prevent sneaking in and out, which is sanity-preserving activity). To me, the above agony sums up that experience more than generic jealousy over another guy getting to hang out with Becca.

Anyway, despite Becca showing subtle signs of cooling towards Garrett at the beginning of the date, by the end of the date she is as over the moon as ever about him. There was a cute moment here where they couldn't stop from laughing as she offered him the rose...

I dig little fits of laughter like the above because it seems like they're in on the ridiculousness of the formality of it all. At this point, given their connection and conversation, it's a given that she's giving him the rose, which to me is how it should be. Their laughter affirms that confidence on both sides.

BLAKE'S 1-ON-1

Blake finally gets his very own date and who knew he was hiding these dance moves?!?!

I purposely make .GIFs like the above faster because I think it's funny (it's the simple joys in life) but in all honesty, I was pretty blown away by his moves.

In the evening Blake reveals what I consider to be a pretty massive deal: His mother left his father for his ENGLISH TEACHER. And he was about 15 at the time, meaning he was probably either still being taught by the guy or was at least still in school with him. My jaw was (I think appropriately) on the floor hearing this but Becca's reaction stuck out to me as NOT REMOTELY SHOCKED ENOUGH....

... which of course led the suspicious side of me to think that reaction was taken from elsewhere, but what would be the purpose in that? Anyway. Tell me if I'm right to be shocked by that story? Or is Ottawa just a straight-laced sleepy place where affairs between your parents and high school teachers are the kind of thing you only see in movies?

I should probably address Blake's major feels for Becca this week. I totally support and believe his anxiety about receiving a date (if you don't get a second 1-on-1 in or by Episode 7, meaning before Hometowns, it's not looking good), but his official ILY (versus his "falling" status) felt like textbook first-1-on-1 date-recipient, on-schedule fare. Like, it's not enough for the guy who had the first 1-on-1 to, 5 weeks later, still simply like the Bachelorette a lot. He's gotta FULL BLOWN LOVE HER or else his feelings development isn't up to snuff. I'm not saying Blake doesn't feel these feelings for Becca (in fact I totally believe he believes he does), and Becca was very responsive to his professions of love. (They shared a very post-ILY-appropriate make out afterwards.) But as I said over at Flare, I feel more through-the-TV-screen chemistry between Becca and each Garrett, Colton, AND Jason than I do Blake. I dunno. I just don't get I-see-my-life-mate-in-you vibes from Becca towards Blake. Let me know if you guys agree.

3-ON-1 DATE

It's the dreaded final Group Date and the musical chairs of 1-on-1 time and make out seshes—within plain sight of the other guys (duh)—ensues. It occurred to me that, when Jason and Becca talked about "it"—IT being hard, IT working—that this is a sort of 4th-wall breakage discussion...

... and 4th-wall breakage discussions are always .GIF-worthy here at All The Pretty Pandas. Interestingly, I don't totally agree with Becca here. I do think it's plenty difficult when it's working (meaning, you're falling in love) but I also think it's very (albeit not as) difficult if you're not.

The first time I watched Becca boat off with Wills and Jason (the Group Date rose prominently in her hand, of course) right in front of a island-bound Leo, I thought it was unnecessarily cruel. But after watching this back I actually think Leo 100% knew he'd be going home and was totally accepting of (and perhaps even cool with) that. After all, I'm PRETTY SURE he even waves them all goodbye...

Farewell, dear Leo! We loved you and your on-point commentary. You are already missed!

It's down to two and Becca says something to Jason that every lead says to a contestant this far out and it bugs me every time...

In my humble opinion, whether or not a guy is super duper effusive at this point (meaning in the ballpark of final 4) is just a matter of words. WORDS! Let us not forget that Jason had his first 1-on-1 LAST WEEK, and that the other three guys with Hometowns have each had TWO. The other guys have had more time to identify and develop those on-schedule feelings. If Jason were "more vocal" with his feelings at this point, I'd only be suspicious. I give him props for sticking to his guns and fending off the expectation (not necessarily from Becca but from all sides) to prematurely use the L-word. Don't get me wrong; I fully expect his Hometown next week to open with him saying something along the lines of him having missed Becca, having realized that he loves her, and that he plans on telling her that sometime that day. (I'm placing my bets now that this will happen!) But for now I respect and applaud his resistance of the L-word pressure.

Becca sends Wills packing and must have caught some camera people off guard in her location or timing because you can see them running to catch her farewell explanation (#4thwall)…
