Not sure tonight’s episode warrants more than ten minutes of writing as time means sleep these days and I don’t get enough of either. I can’t even get into how ridiculous the JJ vs. Andrew racism debate was. Clearly it was the ONLY controversial subject of the entire season and they had to draw it out as much as possible. I do believe that Andrew’s remarks have cut into his personal life. I do think Marquel handled the whole situation as graciously as possible. I don’t like that Farmer Chris or the Basketball Coach felt the need to voice their opinions on this one – not their battle. Don’t really have anything more to say about this, except that it’s really embarrassing for Andrew whether he said it or not because he’ll be labeled a racist forever.
Completely absurd that Ashley and JP felt the need to find out the sex of their baby on TV. That’s a pretty private moment that I hope they found out about first before pretending to find out with everyone else. Feel like these two keep popping up at reunion shows. A move to Miami is pretty drastic. Wonder if they were fighting too much because of being trapped inside during a cold winter. Warm weather and a baby won’t resolve their issues if that’s the case. It’ll just be really hot when they’re changing diapers and up all night. Ashley seems like the controlling, Type A personality in this pair. Didn’t exactly get the warm and fuzzies from watching them together, but maybe I’m imagining things.
I fast forwarded through almost every other conversation that took place. Very glad that Marquel and Marcus are going to be on Bachelor in Paradise. Pretty sick of Michelle Money and Chris B (guy who showed up unannounced on Andi’s season) and have zero interest in seeing them clamor for attention.
Was so hoping they would interview Farmer Chris tonight and announce him as Bachelor, but I’m sure that’s coming at the Live portion of the After the Final Rose. It really can’t be anyone else. Nick’s got too many people thinking he’s shady. I was shopping for clothes this afternoon and a woman overheard me telling a friend that I had to get home for The Bachelorette. She shouted at me from across the store, “Who do you think she’s going to pick?” When I said, “Josh,” she said, “Yeah, that other guy is too strange.” That seems to be the general consensus, plus it’s never a good sign when the majority of the other contestants don’t like you for whatever reason. Andi’s thinking of every reason not to choose Josh because she’s scared of baseball players, but in the end, she’ll go with her heart and I think that’s with Josh.
Strangest part of the night (besides Andrew accidentally referring to Ron (the OTHER African American) instead of Marquel) was the woman who came out of the audience to meet Farmer Chris and do a speed date with him. As The Husband put it, “this show is becoming a carnival.” So true.
I was really hoping that all of the guys unanimously agreed that Andi’s “STAHHHHHP” was incredibly annoying but they never gave us the results of that. No idea what the deal was with that letter Chris H left for Andi from one of her final guys. When was that filmed? Does anyone care? ‘Nuff said about tonight.
We’ve been trying to get Ellie to take regular naps during the day. She’s exhausted as hell but fights us every time. She’ll sleep in the stroller, sometimes in the swing but never in the crib. Then she’s crabby like nothing I’ve ever seen before between 4 and 6:30 PM. To the point where I question if she’s going to have a testy personality when she’s older. There’s no consoling her during that time. Even Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson dance parties only temporarily console her before her wailing continues. She does do long stretches of sleep at night in the crib, so we’re grateful for that.
Time for bed. Promised myself that this show would not keep me up past 11 PM and so far, I’m on track. Little girl will have me up in 7 hours, so every second counts.
