TV recaps, Entertainment, & Pop Culture
We’re finally here! The finale of the first ever Bachelor Winter Games.
I don’t know what is going to happen, but I know I’m probably going to be bored.
My first question is did Dean have a porn mustache situation the entire time? Is this new for the figure skating competition?
I AM BUGGING OUT. ABC JUST SHOWED US THE PREVIEW FOR THE AFTER THE FINAL ROSE AND DEAN GOT DOWN ON ONE KNEE TO LESLEY. I WILL DIE IF HE PROPOSES TO HER.
Can I just skip this recap and talk when that happens???????
Chris Harrison appears, as he always does, to say that couples ice dancing is the final competition and the couples will be trained and judged by famous ice skaters.
Ashley I interrupts to ask if there are fantasy suites. I swear, this franchise is a different world.
So far, the episode is just everyone cuddling, kissing, and practicing their ice dancing. I’m bored.
Courtney and Lilly (?) go outside and make snow angles in their bathing suits before jumping into the hot tub, and I don’t know where these people came from.
Bibi and Jordan are having some difficulties because they butted heads during their ice dancing lesson earlier, and now they’re having the discussion about whether or not they want to continue their relationship afterwards. Ya know, because he lives in Australia/New Zealand and she lives in Miami.
He explains that he had a really hard time on his Bachelor show, and it’s causing Bibi to feel bad and she says she’s not in a place to talk about it right now. This was not the reaction I was expecting. I figured she was more into him than the other way around… interesting.
Bibi is really second guessing everything and I feel bad for her — she really likes him but she doesn’t know if she’s ready. However, girl, you were on The Bachelor 2 seconds ago… and then came on another franchise show the moment you weren’t given a rose. WTF is UP.
Out of nowhere, Bibi says she wants to go home. WTF. Why do people keep coming on this show if they aren’t ready for love? THIS IS A SHOW ABOUT FINDING LOVE. STAY THE HELL HOME!
Everyone wakes up to find Jordan & Bibi gone (they didn’t even say goodbye SMH). Obviously Chris Harrison shows up with another trick up his sleeve.
He announces the judges and trainers of the last competition; Nancy Kerrigan, Randy Garner, and Tai Babilonia…
Justice for Nancy! Why should her arch nemesis Tonya Harding get all the limelight this year.
Ashley I freaks out over Nancy Kerrigan and just STFU Ashley. No one cares about you.
The couples practice, it goes well I suppose. I didn’t pay attention.
Chris Harrison pops up again and says that each couple gets their own romantic one-on-one date, which includes a fantasy suite card.
First up, Dean & Lesley; she pours it out there that she hasn’t been with anyone since her double mastectomy and she’s a little nervous. She wants to make sure Dean is serious before she shows him her battle wounds, as she called them.
She is TOO good for Dean, but goddamit, I love them together! He understands this, because this is how he lost his mother and truly, I think they were made for each other.
He is saying all the right things but he means every last word. LETS GO I LOVE THEM TOGETHER.
They head to the fantasy suite, and they call each other boyfriend/girlfriend before they leave. Like come on — Dean is a very quirky, awkward, fun little boy and Lesley seems to be his match.
Now we have Luke & Stassi, a couple I really don’t care about but the one that has the most intricate long distance relationship ahead of them.
What will they do?
“I want to love and be loved” is Stassi’s response to the long distance question, so I suppose she will follow him anywhere (I think that’s also what she said)
It doesn’t look like they’re going to the fantasy suite because she doesn’t feel ready. Well, one couple had to forgo the suite and it’s not the virgin!
Well, I totally forgot about our international pairing, Courtney & Lilly. Is Lilly her name? I’m pretty sure it is!
They’re in love, they’re into it BUT they’re NOT going to the fantasy suite.
Ashley I and Kevin are up next; they’re getting into their deep, emotional conversation where Kevin says he’s so lucky, and that he’s jealous she’s a virgin (WTF) and she comes back saying that she wishes girls knew it was ok to be a virgin, which I can respect.
She’s crying again though so I’m out on her still…
They go to the fantasy suite and we’re all going to watch Ashley I lose her virginity on national television.
All the fantasy suites are over, everyone’s happy and glowing and they’re all getting ready for their ice dancing debut.
I have to note that Dean is wearing eyeliner and I’m all in. I will follow Dean into a fire, that’s how much I love him and how dedicated I am to him.
Kevin hurts himself at the last minute… what an idiot. They’re literally ON THE ICE, minutes away from the competition’s start. SMH
He slammed his knee on the ice? HOW? Now he won’t be able to lift her? Is the ice made of cement? WTF this is so weird.
This chick is singing the Bachelor National Anthem again and I’m just confused — who wrote this? Did Chris Harrison?
Dean and Lesley are first and I’m excited… let’s see how they do.
After watching the professional figure skating of the Olympics, it’s refreshing to see people who can’t ice skate, attempt to ice skate.
Courtney and Lilly were next; they were perfectly fine, probably better in technique than Dean and Lesley.
WTF why were Luke and Stassi so good??? That was an amazing performance!
Chris Harrison saying that Ashley & Kevin look relaxed is very uncomfortable. Referencing the fantasy suite by name makes me even more uncomfortable.
The lift that they did was very impressive. They did pretty good..
Ok, tell us who gets the golden rose, Harrison.
KEVIN AND ASHLEY.
Of course, they gotta give this girl something to live for.
I will see you in an hour for the After the Winter Games recap!
