The Bachelorette S12 E9: I want to join Rachel’s family

There’s only three men left on The Bachelorette…that only means one thing! Chris Harrison inviting Rachel to get it on in the Fantasy Suites!

We start with everyone still in Dallas – because Rachel wants everyone to meet her family and her super preggers sister can’t travel so it’s happening right now!

Peter goes first. They go baby clothes shopping, Peter is pretty good at it.

So since they aren’t going abroad just yet, this means the men are not separated. Which means that Bryan can be a gossip whore. He’s bad mouthing Peter because Peter said he might not put a ring on it.

Peter wants Rachel to know how he feels, he means the world to her. And he finally says it. HE IS FALLING IN LOVE WITH RACHEL. SHE IS FALLING IN LOVE WITH HIM. YASSSSS.

Peter gets to meet Rachel’s family which includes her sister, Mom, Uncle, Aunt, and her Dad isn’t there because he’s off being intimidating.  Peter’s parents got married after a month and have been married for 36 years. It’s almost like fate!

Rachel talks to her hella pregger sister who is skeptical. Because remember last time Nick met her family and we all know how that ended up. Rachel talks to her mom about her doubts as well.

So Rachel’s mom goes straight for the jugular and asks Peter if he’s going to propose. And Peter still isn’t sure (goddamn Peter). And he’s not going to ask for permission to marry Rachel because he’s not sure. And her mom appreciates this. BUT I DO NOT. It was a nice family meeting but come on Peter, make a commitment. This is a show about getting married on national tv! Get with the program! (literally).

Eric is next. They look at the skyline and stuff.

Ugh Bryan and Peter talk and Bryan continues to be annoying and stirring the pot.

Back to Eric, in case he hasn’t already mentioned it 15 million times, he’s never done this before. Does this mean dating someone on reality tv? Or just meeting someone’s family? We’ll never know!! (It’s meeting someone’s family).

Eric lets everyone know he didn’t come from a typical family. And that family means a lot to him. Constance, Rachel’s sister, is a little dubious of Eric. Because remember that one time that Eric never loved anyone or met anyone’s family ever etc., etc. Eric wants a family and a wife and blah blah blah.

But Eric goes in for the kill, and asks for Rachel’s hand in marriage. She says yes but like not outright- more like if Rachel decides that she would want to pick you then you could propose.

Bryan’s turn. Ugh. He gets to have brunch with some girlfriends. Bryan doesn’t deserve bottomless mimosas. Rachel tells her friends she thought Bryan was a douchebag. RACHEL YOU ARE A SMART LADY. YOU KNOW BEST. UGH.

Time for Bryan to meet the family. Rachel’s mom isn’t stupid. She asks Bryan about his weird super clingy mom. And Bryan reluctantly ranks his future wife over his mom. Bryan then says Rachel was his girlfriend after a week. Constance isn’t hearing this BS.

The family keeps asking questions to the point that Bryan asks to be excused. If you can’t handle the heat GO HOME RIGHT NOW. Rachel’s family remind her of the fact she’s been living in a literal bubble and that maybe she needs to look at Bryan from a different perspective AKA he’s a douchebag. She’s really defensive of him.

Rachel’s mom has some red flags. It’s because Bryan is just throwing around the word love and like how it happened in 5 seconds. Remember Peter and the fact he wants more time. Like a rational person.

Bryan of course has to ask Rachel’s mom for her permission to marry Rachel. Rachel’s mom says not everything can be perfect, so Bryan and Rachel can’t just skip off into the sunset. But she gives Bryan permission because she is a great mom and trusts her daughter. Rachel’s mom is the best. Bryan is not the best.

TIME TO TAKE THIS LOVE SHOW ON THE ROAD. Did you know that Spain is the perfect place to fall in love?! (By Spain I mean literally every country the finale happens in).

Here are my recaps of Rachel’s recaps of the men:

Bryan said I love you first.

Peter makes Rachel believe in the journey and doesn’t want to propose just yet

And Eric is just there.

So Eric gets to go first. Because we won’t remember his date by the end of this episode. They go on a helicopter ride. I really feel like we haven’t had that many this season. I’m feeling jipped.  The climb a mountain and ring a wish granting bell.

Now it’s nighttime….and that only means one thing…FANTASY SUITES. Rachel needs to dive deeper before she just willy-nilly gives out room keys from Chris Harrison. She makes him talk about his feelings for her. And here we go, official “I love you” from Eric! And nothing gets you a fantasy suite invite quite like some lovin’. Eric says yes because he isn’t stupid.

Time for the next morning-obvious-we-had-sex-rumpled-bed. They did it. And now we’re moving on.

BECAUSE IT’S PETER’S TURN.

They get to talk to an adorable old Spanish man about his wine cave. He sings to Rachel. It’s incredibly awkward but I love a little old man so it’s adorable. Peter lets Rachel know that he takes engagements SUPER seriously. Like he means it if they get engaged. Unlike everyone else that has ever been on this show. A random little girl interrupts this conversation so Rachel and Peter get to make out in the tub of grapes that get stomped into wine. Thank you little girl.

Peter’s family has an adorbs family tradition of saving a cork from special occasions with a memory on it and it’s so cute and imma steal this tradition. Rachel has to bring the conversation back around to the engagement. Rachel is a little more loose in her ideas of engagement while Peter, if he is going to commit, is going to commit.  COMMIT PETER.

And Peter doesn’t know how to compromise on this issue. AHHHGHHHH. NOOO NOOO. And Rachel doesn’t know what to do. Hand him the damn fantasy suite card and get on with being in love with each other forever.

Next week is Men Tell All. Urgh.

But in two weeks we get the finale where Peter better not mess things up!! If he even gets to the finale!? This might actually be the most dramatic season ever.

 

The Bachelorette S12 E9: I want to join Rachel’s family

Bachelor E9: Ben LOVES everyone #wellnoteveryone

FANTASY SUITESSSSSSSSS

Chris Harrison wants everybody to get it on

My friend informed me that Caila’s nickname is sex panther because she pounces on Ben

Ben if you think Jamaica is a great place to fall in love…you’re a little late in the game

Let’s recap:

Ben’s biggest fear for Caila is that she’s an unemotional robot

Lauren is cool

JoJo’s brothers are asses

 

Caila is up first and there are some very long extended silences. They go on a boat with an old man. After the super awkward date with lots more silences, Caila ponies up and declares her love and we get to the fantasy suite…LET’S DO IT

They did it. Caila says last night was amazing and she knows Ben can’t say he loves her…but we know he says it to two other people…and there’s only two other people left

Now it’s time for Lauren’s date. We get yet another old man for the 3rd wheel. They save turtles, the turtles are adorbs, their relationship-not as cute. Ben then compliments Lauren for a long time. They go to a fun dance party and Lauren has thoughts and feelings. OMG saying I love you is like really hard, honey, if you don’t want your ass to be sent home you better start expressing your love…in multiple ways. Fantasy Suite #2. And Lauren confesses her love! We’re 2 for 2 people. #allthelove #allthefantasysuites

GASP. HE’S NOT ALLOWED TO SAY THAT. NO RECIPROCATED FEELINGS

So we think that because he legitimately told Lauren he loves her, which is against the rules, so he then has to tell JoJo as well.

Lauren is feeling good- she got laid- she got an “I Love you”- there’s nothing else a girl could want

Well now JoJo has to follow that up…good luck. Helicopters are so week 2, but we can forgive for the secret grotto. And we get an I Love you from JoJo. 3 for 3! AND BEN LOVES HER TOO

And Ben starts talking about 2 women, and either, I guess Caila fell off the waterfall

Now we’re just throwing the word love around everywhere. Ben’s staying the night with a woman he loves. He said I love you to two different women. JoJo says it again. Poor JoJo, he didn’t mean it. The producers made him say it.

Time to have sex with the remaining girl. Now Ben will definitely know who to choose!

NO THE PREVIEWS MAKE IT LOOK LIKE CAILA WALKS IN ON THEM. NO CAILA, YOU KNOW HOW THESE WORK, EVERYONE GETS A FANTASY SUITE

It’s morning everyone is too freaking happy. And Ben leaves so Caila’s gasp is not from walking in on them.

Ben continues to talk about 2 women…even though there are 3 left.

So now Caila goes to find him…we all know this won’t end well.

Don’t tell her you love 2 women there and not her!!!!!!!!!! 😦

Caila doesn’t follow any rules and jumps out of the car and demands some answers. She doesn’t want to end on a weird note #toolate I’m okay with her as the Bachelorette, I wouldn’t hate it

Time for a pointless rose ceremony- because Chris Harrison needs at least some screen time. He spent all that time writing those fantasy suite notes. Hurry everyone tell Chris Harrison that Ben loves them back!

Let’s have some awkward time standing and staring at the roses. Ben waltzes down to let them know that Caila is gone. But this is still the Bachelor so you have to give them out. JoJo gets the first rose, let’s over analyze that

Let’s group hug it out

COMING UP NEXT NEXT WEEK (women tell all is next week)

I like Lauren’s dress better. And Ben’s journey comes to an end! We say love 1000000 more times. But he could still end up alone, because that’s a logical option. And then he calls someone on the phone. WHO EVEN CALLS SOMEONE ANYMORE? Texting all the way
