TV recaps, Entertainment, & Pop Culture
Are we ready? This is what we’ve been waiting for! The Bachelor finale…or in the words of Chris Harrison, “the most controversial season finale ever” and Arie will be the most controversial Bachelor ever.
If you didn’t spoil it for yourself at this point, when US Weekly and E! Online spoiled it right in the headline, congratulations!
I’m not doing a full play by play because it’s 3 hours of television and I think the most worthwhile thing is to talk about what happens when the controversy happens.
I have to say right now, that tomorrow I’m on a work trip so I won’t be doing a recap, or even watch it so yes, I’m pretty pissed off.
We start off this episode with Arie telling his family that he loves both Lauren and Becca, and then Lauren meets his family.
She is super shy, really quiet and very emotional when she talks to his family but I think that’s what Arie likes about her.
I honestly think Arie and Lauren are perfect together. They are both boring, but in a good way, and they’re both soft spoken. I’m rooting for them!
I also really just don’t like Becca, something about her rubs me the wrong way.
Right before Becca meets Arie’s family, they’ve already decided they love Lauren LOL. Let’s see how this plays out…
I just want to say that I know I’m not going to hate Arie at the end of this and I really wonder what that says about me.
Arie’s dad tells Becca that he would be happy with either Lauren or Becca, and his entire family kept talking about Lauren. OMG This is is ruthless. Poor Becca…
Ok, i’ve missed the past 45 minutes of this. Lauren and Arie just had their date, they’re so in love and kissing a lot. I guess Lauren opened up a bit more? It sounds like it.
Arie seems very pleased with their conversation that probably consisted of Lauren gushing how much she loves him.
I like them a lot!! Lauren seems so meek and sincere, and not overly done with insane, crazy emotion.
I really just am ready for the dramatic finale…
Ok, I skipped Becca’s date because I literally can’t stand the sight of her. How am I going to survive an entire season of The Bachelorette??
She reads Arie a little journal entry about her dad’s death and then gives him a photo album of their time together over the past few weeks.
I want to throw up.
As someone who’s dad has also died, I can say that.
Side note, I saw in passing that Caroline, Bekah M, and Sienne were all on ATFR talking to Chris Harrison aka auditioning for BIP, and I want to scream. I hate them all.
Caroline was my FAVORITE when this show started but I’m so over her trying to get her 15 minutes of fame by calling out Arie for following his heart.
OH hot DAM. Ben Higgins & Jason are on AFTR, talking about their experiences with loving two different women when they were the Bachelor.
Ben Higgins is a treat and I want to fall madly in love with him.
Alright LETS DO THIS. It’s final rose time!!! This means we’re on step closer to seeing Arie break up with one girl and go after the other…unedited, as Harrison says.
Oh hello Neil Lane…
I love a good Cushion Cut — ugh, future husband, are you reading???? CUSHION CUT.
Uh, Lauren is the first out of the limo so we know what that means…
She’s NOT getting proposed to.
This show is pure magic because I know how this ends, I read all the spoilers and I’m still anxious watching it.
Lauren is spilling her heart out and Arie is just broken that he isn’t going to propose to her.
Jesus, this is sad AF because during this time, Lauren didn’t know she eventually would end up with him.
I am VERY sad and I feel like I’m going to cry.
Arie just tells her that something was stopping him and he couldn’t go through with it.
That’s such bullshit.
She tells him she still loves him, and he says he loves her which is also bullshit.
I hate Becca, I love Lauren, where is this coming from? Briana, what is WRONG WITH YOU.
I can’t believe they’re even showing us the Becca proposal even after we know what happens, because spoilers have been saying that he dumps the girl he gave the rose too and goes back with the runner up.
It doesn’t matter if I hate the person, I still get chills whenever someone gets proposed too.
The proposal was cute AF and they both seemed really happy, which makes me question even more that he breaks up with Becca. He says he thought about their kids and that he choose her everyday… until he doesn’t.
There is one more hour left and I’m not ready for it…
