В безумных событиях этого сумасшедшего года у меня не было никакой возможности следить за всем тем, за чем бы мне хотелось. И, к большому моему сожелению, какие то вещи совершенно выпали из моего поля зрения, и это случилось с моими самыми любимыми рассмотрами Шарлин.
Я постараюсь их запостить хоть и с большим опозданием, хотя пока не представляю как мне это удастся, в этом году все было в кучу, несколько Холостячек практически одновременни и теперь уже и Холостяк на носу. Сложно за всем угнаться в занятой повседневности этой сумасшедшей жизни.
Итак, из блога Шарлин:

Episode 1

Thank you for your thoughtful and supportive responses to my recent blog post about these recaps. There were over 750 comments (!) and I read every one.

I put a lot (and I mean an embarrassing amount) of thought into what to do here. The vast majority of you expressed preferring these in writing, though most of you said you’d give anything I produced a try (thank you!). I actually did record and edit a video recap, intended for Youtube, which took me two very long days. But beyond a myriad of unanticipated technical difficulties (culminating in a full blown meltdown on our roof deck where Andy held me while I cried), I simply didn’t love the result. I found it difficult to have the same tone, to cover the same amount of detail (I had mistakenly thought I could cover more moments; it was just the opposite), and frankly, as a medium, it stressed me out. (As I said on that post, I am far more comfortable writing than I am on camera!) In short, this recap should have come out sooner this week, but it was delayed by the fact that I literally created two of them. I finally threw in the towel with the video (this was post-rooftop meltdown) and embarked on a flurry of .GIF-making.

I am not averse to change, but I still want to love and be proud of what I produce. Since most of you prefer written recaps, and since I prefer to write, I’m going to stick with what feels natural for now. So here’s what I intend to do, at least for this season: I will recap as usual here. I will pick apart the best and worst dressed in usual fashion police form. I will cut the fashion requests/IDs in order to make these less stressful and time-consuming, but which also means losing the only way I’ve ever monetized these recaps.

This creates the two elephants in the room: monetization and growth. In terms of growth, all I ask is that you continue to spread the word as you always have. In my 6.5 years of doing these, I’ve learned nothing is more powerful than word of mouth. In terms of monetization, I’m listening to you and your comments. Many of you (rightfully) expressed frustration that I had never even provided the option for a Patreon or something similar. Thanks to your suggestions, I did explore and even opened both Substack and Patreon accounts. I read their terms, tinkered with their platforms, and hemmed and hawed over subscription tiers. However, as expected, I didn’t feel totally comfortable with a paid-content subscription platform. As I said over on that blog post, I have never been great at asking for money or “selling” myself. But, as one reader told me in an email, I do need to “stop being allergic to money”, and as Kash put in the comments, “Getting Paid For Good Work” (GPFGW is an official acronym now is nothing to be ashamed of.

SO, after much deliberation and in direct response to your many comments, what I’ve decided to add to the Pretty Panda mix is a simple tip jar. If you like what you consume here and wish to support me in creating it, you can buy me a coffee.
It has always been my ideal to have a free, open space where we can analyze and discuss and bond over this show together. Hopefully the “coffees” add up and we can continue to do so for many, many moons to come.

Revenue-wise, I have a soft “goal” number in my mind that equates to these being worth my time and effort; as per your kind requests, we’ll give this avenue a test drive and see if it works for all of us. And who knows—hopefully that sponsorship will come one day! Thank you again for your loyalty, thoughtfulness, and for truly feeling like friends. ♡

PS—Some of you have expressed interest in an audio version of these. One girlfriend of mine has been particularly emphatic about this. This is far less daunting (and less unnatural) to me than video; I am open to reading my own recap (audiobook-style) and posting as a podcast of sorts. Let me know in the comments if this speaks to you. If there’s enough interest, I can explore this!

Without further ado, let us recap!

”I don’t want to make a scene.”

—Tyler C, mid-scene-making

INTRO

I was legitimately PUMPED for this season. As with many of you, I’m sure, I was excited to watch a woman who wasn’t 23 search for love. Better yet, a woman from my own season!

With many extra months to remind us how “grown” and “empowered” and “knowing of what she wants” Clare is, the show certainly didn’t shy away from hyping both her and her age in a positive way. I was keen to watch Clare (I’ve long thought Clare would be fantastic in this role) and especially to watch a woman in her late 30s at the helm. I was excited for how that might translate in not only different decision making on her part, but also a different portrayal on production’s part.

Alas. My hopes were shattered literally 18 seconds into this premiere, with…

And lest you think Clare actually said the above and that production was just the messenger, give that phrase a listen…
I’m 39. This might just be my / last / chance.

Indeed, it’s frankenbitten. Isn’t it incredible that production CREATED this phrase, essentially going out of their way to portray a time limit for Clare (which, given the context, cannot not be equated with desperation), despite their own “empowered woman” theme?

Am I surprised? No. Disappointed? Yep. But at least we know there won’t be any surprises in this department.

During the COVID segment, I couldn’t help but laugh at loud at the dramatic transition into Clare’s full-makeup, perfect hair, majestic pose “sheltering at home” B-roll…

It’s worth listening to for the full orchestrated soundtrack and ultra sloppy frankenbiting…
We were / gonna start / filming in / just / a couple days / but then because of the pandemic / we shut down.

First, the above is obvious B-roll from either before filming began or after filming began. It’ll be fun to see if and when we spot that cream ribbed top again. Second, I don’t know about you, but my sheltering at home looked NOTHING like this. It looked a hell of a lot more like this video (no makeup, dirty hair up, pajama pants, and stains on said pajama pants).

We’re shown a montage of the men arriving, quarantining, and getting tested. This whole thing felt a bit heavy-handed, if I’m honest, if only because it felt like a self-congratulatory pat on the back for the show (“See how safe we’re being?? ANYTHING FOR CLARE.”) when frankly, these are all actions they should have been taking. That said, I did appreciate the normalization of these precautions, so I won’t dwell further.

Demar shows us his hotel room where he’ll be quarantining…

This made me smile to myself because, in the past, the whole concept of a limited amount of space is created by the Bachelor Mansion (8 contestants MUST be squeezed together in bunks in one bedroom! There’s nowhere else to be!) and the travel (no one would ever expect their own bedroom at a luxury resort in Peru). But something about this shot put into perspective how unnecessary it’ll be when these men inevitably have to move into a suite with multiple roommates (and possibly bunk beds?) and very limited space. When they’re grating on each other and have nowhere to go, it’ll be somewhat amusing to remember all these empty rooms on the very same resort grounds.

NIGHT ONE

Clare sits down for a heart to heart with Chris Harrison and he promptly induces her tears with the ruthless efficiency of a homing missile. He asks her what her deceased father would tell her and what follows is, as I put in my notes, “a real Clare moment”…

When people cry… you know how, with some of them, you find yourself observing them? While with others, you just want to hug them? Clare falls into the latter category for me. There’s just such honesty in her emotions, whether or not you agree with them, and there’s something gut-wrenching about the simplicity of a tearful “I’ve tried my best”. Clare has (and has always had) a level of transparency to her that is hard to find and which makes for fantastic television. It’s very Hannah B-esque, that lack of being performative, paired with a lack of emotional censorship. I simply love watching this woman.

Heading into the limo exits, we’re shown an ITM of Clare declaring…

You guys!!! I SO wanted this to be a pick-up. I was determined to dig up the visual details to prove it!

This (incredibly worthwhile) pursuit led me to the realization that pick-ups will likely be far harder to spot than in past seasons. In the past, based on changing ITM rooms or the number of Night One pick-ups one contestant might have, I’ve been able to predict how far they might make it. (For example, eventual winner Whitney Bischoff had two Night One pick-ups. Considering some contestants have none, that was telling.)

With this season, that kind of analysis has been turned on its head. If Clare doesn’t actually leave La Quinta Resort & Club, it stands to reason they’d just keep her diamond jewelry and designer clothes on standby. (In the past, when the troupe begins to travel, the pricier pieces—namely the jewelry—are left behind.) Further, a lack of changing landscapes means a lack of changing ITM rooms.

Regardless, as convinced as I was that Clare must have retroactively declared she could pick out her husband the second she met him, that turned out to be projection on my part. She just really was THAT confident that she could pick out her husband the second she met him! Shame on me.
Is there a whole other discussion to be had here, involving the delays the pandemic meant for filming, and the fact that Clare was the first lead in the franchise’s history to have access to the names and social media accounts of her cast of men? Absolutely. I touched on this over at Flare, but it’s safe to say it’s unlikely Clare didn’t even peek at these guys’ online presences (I know I would have!!!) and that her IRL “first impression” of them might have been altered by those in some way.
Am I suggesting she at the very least stalked Dale’s social media? Yes, yes I am. Am I saying there’s anything wrong with that? NOPE.

Just for the record with pick-ups (as much for my own reference as for yours), observe Clare’s two ITMs from Night One…

… compared to her pick-up…

It’ll be interesting to see how much of the pick-up room we see down the road. Considering what most of us know with what happens this season (I’m avoiding outwardly saying it but you’d have to be living under a rock to have no idea what I’m talking about!), if many of Clare’s pick-ups are filmed in the above room, it’s very likely she filmed a slew of them retroactively, in the “after” time. Meaning, she may have been plopped there to beef up the narrative of her own season using a bunch of pick-ups, after the big change (the elephant in the room that will go unnamed) happens. I’m only speculating—we’ll see if I’m right!

LIMO EXITS

In keeping with my tradition of sharing my first-impression notes from the limo exits, here are the men who stood out to me…

Ben, 29, army ranger veteran: A frontrunner on paper, for sure. As with many first-limo-exit-ers, I can picture him being a future franchise star.

Jason, 31, former pro football lineman: Definitely one to watch based on airtime alone, but more so as a personality than as a romantic interest of Clare’s. I dug the pregnancy belly and am glad that opportunity didn’t go wasted.

Those positives aside, is it just me, or was this some weird we’ve-just-met back rubbing, both the arrival and the departure…?

I have always disliked it when a man I don’t know well hugs me in a way that feels as though he’s “feeling” me. Whether in terms of literal stroking or squeezing or simply as though they could take stock of the texture of your skin. It looked as though that’s what Jason was doing with Clare’s bare back, and it made me wince. (Am I the one being weird about this? Is the above totally normal nice-to-meet-you touching?? I WANT TO KNOW.)
