Ugh! I had internet issues last night, it wasn’t even storming, so this couldn’t be posted last night. Some of my observations are based on my reactions as I watched in real-time. Overall, last night’s episode was pretty good…drama wasted no time! As per ushe, we started with Chris Harrison greeting the men after a quick wardrobe change to make us think it was a new day after the first rose ceremony.
Group Date: Dean, Jack, Jonathan, Blake, Iggy, Kenny, Fred, Lucas
Ashton & Mila! OMG!!! Kelso & Jackie arrived to greet the guys & let them know that they would be competing for Rachel on the Ultimate Dad obstacle course. Ashton said Rachel is looking for a real man…with health insurance. He could not be more correct. Whaboom, Blake, & Dean definitely don’t have health insurance…probably not a 401k either.
Shocking everyone, Lucas won the race! He beat out Kenny by shoving him out of the way. Blake cried about it. I think WhaBoom’s baby was probably dead by the end, but he won. Ashton, Mila, & Rachel’s reactions were the best! Somehow I think Rachel would rather have spent extra time with Kenny.
Lucas wasn’t as annoying during his 1-on-1 time, although he wore a hideous, distracting suit. Fred told her that he has grown up & matured. Jonathan taught her how to change a diaper – gross…why was he showing her this? He doesn’t have children (as far as we know). Rachel thought all the convos were mundane…until Dean sat down with her. Kenny did well too. I love Kenny!
Blake’s obsession with Lucas is more annoying than Lucas being here. The other guys are so unimpressed with Blake & Lucas. I think it was Kenny that mentioned that the “white guys” were giving them all a bad name – I paraphrased.
Dean got the rose. He sealed it with a kiss…which Rachel was in to! Thank god he didn’t eat her face like Bryan did on night one.
Copper joined their date to Palm Springs. I love all the dogs!!! Barkfest looks fun! But, seriously, what happened to Copper’s leg? Did he have a cast last episode? Peter is so hot! Rachel called it, Peter is dreamy.
Rachel’s dinner dress was beautiful. If she doesn’t pick Peter, I’ll take him. They talk about the gap in their teeth…if that was my only problem with my teeth, I’d keep it too. They are so cute together. They also talked about going to therapy after really bad breakups. Have we ever had such real talk this early in season?
Peter got the rose.
Group Date 2: Will, Jamey, Diggy, Alex, Adam, Lee, Matt, Eric, Josiah, DeMario
Basketball with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar! Who cares about the actual basketball game, get to the girlfriend! Rachel was annoyed by Eric’s antics to get noticed. I loved that Rachel got bored by the game & started dancing with the band…me too girl, me too. Rachel is smitten with DeMario, which means the girlfriend is his right? Called it. She sent DeMario home. Lexi & DeMario annoyed me so much – they wouldn’t let Rachel talk. Lawyer Rachel had to come out & give DeMario a reckoning.
Before heading to the Group Date cocktail party, Rachel needed a few minutes to collect herself. She totally bi-passed Chris Harrison – so much for his pep talk. Anyway, the show must go on right? I think Rachel handled herself really well with the guys.
I thought Diggy, Eric, & Josiah had the most impressive 1-on-1’s with Rachel.
Josiah got the rose.
Of course this took the entire two hours, so no rose ceremony – this royally pisses me off as most of you know. DeMario showed back up to ruin the Rose Ceremony…I think the guys are planning to lynch him.
Current men left (I use the term men loosely) & who got date roses:
Favorite Tweets from the night:
What did y’all think of last night’s episode? I thought Blake was far more annoying than Whaboom. I’m okay that DeMario is gone because he’s a douche & Diggy looks just like him. For some reason I get Iggy & Will mixed up…they looking nothing alike, but I’m always surprised to see them.
The Southern Charm recap will be up later today & RHONY later this week.
