The Bachelorette Recap
Jake and Vienna At War!
There was only one reason to watch The Bachelorette last night: Jake and Vienna, the Post Breakup interview!
Of course, ABC made us wait until the end of our weekly Bachelorette fill to see this, and you’re going to have to wait till the end of my recap, too.
It was down to the final five for Ali, who was flipping over picking the final four because she’d be going home to meet their families, a daunting concept, no doubt. Roberto got the first date. Sitting on the steps of castle ruins in Portugal, he told Ali that he’s not nervous to bring her home to taste all his mom’s Spanish food. If Ali doesn’t pick Roberto, I think we’re staring at the series’ first ethnic Bachelor-to-be. It’s about time!
Back at the Bachelor pad Frank learned he got on the two-on-one date with Ty, and he was pissed. That boy is having a harder and harder time fighting for Ali’s affection, as he gets closer to the finish line. During their alone time, Frank pleaded for Ali to come home with him and admitted he actually lives at home with his parents, to which Ali gave him a big ole kiss. Yeah, we know what she was thinking: I better get my action in now since I’m not getting busy in his childhood bedroom!
Kirk lost his dude ‘tude for the first time during his one-on-one date. He said that wasn’t falling for the idea of Ali or the concept of love, but he really cared about her. Kirk’s confession (and his chiseled abs!), would have won me over right then and there, if it weren’t for Chris L., who opened up about his beloved mom, who passed away a year ago. Hearing about how much she was still loved by her friends and family was just heartwarming. And that boy can kiss.
In the end, it was Ty who was sent packing, and we learned that ABC could deliver a satisfying episode of The Bachelorette in 90 minutes or less. Oh please, ABC, make it a reality every week!
