Let me start this recap by saying a few things:
- I really struggled with wanting to recap this season because I have not forgiven Mike Fleiss & ABC for basically turning Arie’s breakup with Becca into a #MeToo moment. They handled it so poorly. Did they steal the idea from UnREAL?
- Was it just me, or did they release the men’s bios really late?
- My mom got married Sunday, so I didn’t have the time to look at the bios beforehand, but I’ve listened to the Popcast, Here to Make Friends, & Will You Accept This Rose podcasts analyze the guys. I feel like I have pretty good handle on the situation. All of these podcasts have fantastic recaps as well, so you should definitely listen – after you read this of course.
- Garrett is this season’s Lee from Rachel’s Season…at least he is in real life. He has deleted his IG account, but checkout this article. He’s a real gem. Racist. Homophobic. Anti-women. I could go on and on. Thank you to Ashley Spivey, Claire Fallon, & Emma Gray for keeping us informed!
With that said, I’m here for y’all, & I’m here for Becca. She did nothing wrong last season, except saying “Let’s do the damn thing” twice. We can now retire that saying. I love Becca and hope her season is everything Arie’s wasn’t. I will now never say the A-word again.
Colton: I love confetti. I love a blonde with brown eyes. Colton is definitely one to watch.
Grant: He is cute! Love his dimples. Grant looks like Matt Damon & Jason Bateman had a love child. Clay: seems like a gentle giant.
Jean Blanc: He said “let’s do the damn thing” in French, who knew it could be worse?
Conner: He pulled Becca’s move from last season. Conner looks like Dean & Juan Pablo had a love child.
These guys were nervous.
Joe: I love Joe! He looks just like someone I went to school with; Dustin S. is that you???
John: The token Asian, but he is impressive. I have him to thank for Venmo.
Leo: He has Alex the Russian’s face & Jason Mamoa’s hair.Jordan: Seems like a Tool McDouche Nugget of the highest order. You can see his dick through his pants, eww.
Rickey: He’s into grammar & adjectives. I kind of love that.
Alex: He’s much cuter in person; he brought a jar for all his roses. I’m not sure what to make of that.
Nick: He arrived in a race car driver outfit (uniform?), then stripped it off to reveal his suit. I’m undecided on him.
Mike: He brought the A-word in cut-out form. Can we burn it?
Garrett: He drove up in a minivan; Garrett looks like Becca’s ex, Ross. She’s totally loving him. For all I know about him, he is very smooth & think he is Final Four, if not the One.
Blake: He road up on an ox this time? His feelings are “as strong as an ox.” Is this okay?
Lincoln: Brought cake for his birthday? I’m not even going to mention the awful story circulating about him right now…
Chase: He said “it’s all about the chase.” Barf.
Darius: I missed his entrance somehow, but he went home…
Ryan: Is he wearing drapery as a jacket? I love Ryan!
Christon: He is tall, dark, & handsome. He dunked over Becca, which was so cool.
Wills: Claims to be a closeted nerd; is that code for something else? Is he Lincoln’s twin? Jason: Gave Becca a secret handshake. Jason looks like the husband from the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Kamil: I don’t like the way he speaks to her. Is he the coke addicted Russian dancer from UnREAL last season?
Jake: They know each other; she was weirded out that he was there & dubious of his intentions. Jake looks like Andrew Keegan & Ryan Reynolds had a love child.
Trent: He arrived in a Hearst, yet didn’t say “I’ve been dying to meet you.”
Christian: Becca said he was suave, & the we promptly never heard from him again.
David: He arrived as Big Bird? A chicken? He really kept up the bird act all night. I love David!
Chris: Chandler’s roommate is here. He brought a gospel choir; Uncle Gary would have approved…too bad he turned out to be the Tattler.
Overall, I’m not too impressed with the men so far. I think Colton, Garrett, 7 Lincoln on ones to watch based on the previews.
