The Bachelor, Season 20, Week 3: Kimmel, Costco, Crashing, and Lots of Kissing

Episode Recap

Let's be honest. Jimmy Kimmel was clearly the best part of the entire show. A date to Costco? It might not be worth any points, but that's as real life as it gets. And the group date on the makeshift farm? He obviously has Chris's best interest at heart. If a woman can't shuck corn, find an egg in a chicken coop, crack the egg without cracking the yolk, milk a goat, drink the milk, shovel manure, and wrestle a greased pig, she obviously won't last a day on his farm. We should all be so lucky as to have a friend like Jimmy that puts true compatibility to the test.
SIDE BAR: If your best friend planned a relay race for prospective one night stands fantasy suite partners spouses, what would it entail? Mine would look something like this: wash a sink full of dishes, take a 2-minute shower whilst avoiding sharp objects littered about the floor, arrange a 15-item grocery list by aisle, change the batteries in 8 timer-set candles, purchase a grey convertible crib with a matching dresser for under $300 for the set online, solve a quadratic equation with the A coefficient not equal to one, and correctly identify the correct form of there/their/they're in 8 sentences with at least 87.5% accuracy.

Let me tell you why Whitney is a genius. By crashing a wedding, she bought herself some time away from the cameras. She was able to show Chris how she can literally throw herself into any social situation and make friends, which is EXACTLY what he said he was looking for. When he started to stumble with their facts, she filled in and made their story somewhat believable. She showed him what life would be like with her outside of the show, and for that, she deserves a blue ribbon. Well, played, Whitney. When Chris said, "It wasn't about the day; it was about what she made it," I just knew she was a great girl to have on my team. I'm rooting for you, Whitney!

Let's talk about Jillian and Juelia for a moment, shall we? These two girls brought in the most points for the week, and neither of them went on a one-on-one dates! In all seriousness, my heart breaks for Juelia, but I think she's as good as gone next week. She didn't pick the best time to drop that bomb, and I think Chris will only keep her around long enough to not look like a dick. Jillian is a complete stalker. And what is up with her nether regions? Even fully-clothes, she still gets blurred out. You all are kicking yourself because NO ONE chose Jillian. Look at all of those blurred out body parts you're  letting ride off into the sunset. Kudos to Dan for picking Juelia. That must be his secret weapon.

Ashley I. has the emotional maturity of a Kardashian. Maybe she's a long-lost sister. From another dad. She reeks of desperation. I hate to break it to you, Ashley, but he has better chemistry with several other girls. I loved Chris last season, but I love and respect him even more after he made Ashley I. wait until the final rose to get hers, especially after she requested one of the first roses.

Points

Wildcard points were supposed to be awarded to the first lady to make a comment about Ashley S. Damnit, wouldn't you know she was on her best behavior. I'm adding the following to my birthday wish list: 1) the meds that she was on last night, and 2) the show's editors. I'd like to hire the editors as my publicists to manage all of my social media accounts. We will have double wildcard points next week.

This week, Dan S. is in the lead with 715 total points, Amy C. is a close second with 710 points, and David A. is keeping up with 700 points. Don't get discouraged, y'all! It's dump 'n draft time soon. You'll have two weeks to figure out who you'd like to dump and who you'll draft. I'll need your selections after week 5 but by the Sunday before week 6.

In all seriousness, I want everyone to respond to my sidebar: If your best friend planned a relay race for prospective one night stands fantasy suite partners spouses, what would it entail?

The Bachelor, Season 20, Week 2: Tractors and Zombies

Episode Recap

I hope you're all enjoying your unproductive Monday evenings as much as I am!

Can I get a slow clap for Kimberly? Karen A. is the ONLY person that took a gamble on Kimberly last week. It looks like it paid off big for you this week!




I paused Mackenzie's one-on-one time with Chris three times. The big nose comment, the conversation about aliens, admitting that you haven't been on a date in a long time, and then dropping the kid bomb? Come on, now... On a serious note, her hair looks significantly better straight. Am I right?!

Megan isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, is she? She thought the date card was a love note? Um, has she ever SEEN this show?

I would have left the show after the zombie limo. But not Ashley S.; she just walks straight into that group of zombies like she owns the place. She shouldn't be trusted with a gun. Ever. She sees things in bushes. She wants to play hide-and-seek with a grown-ass farmer.

Bachelor Nation Poll: Does "Juelia" sound anything like "Jillian" to you? I wanted to crawl into a hole and die for her.

On a side note, does anyone else think that Trina looks like Leslie Burke from Saved By The Bell: The College Years?





















Quoted

"The date card said show me your country. I'm more Kardashian than I am country." -Ashley I.

"And then there was this motorcycle helmet. Just to make sure the helmet is safe, I rammed my head into the brick wall." -Megan

"Oh, she also ran her head into the refrigerator, and to the wood, and to the bricks." -Jillian

"The fact that she's talking about aliens on a first date does raise a few red flags for me." -Chris

"Death is zero amount romantic." -Jillian

"I feel like I'm in the mesa verde." -Ashley S., professional dead zombie assassin

"Cheers to Jordan. She's drunk tonight, she was drunk yesterday, she was drunk the day before, she's gonna be drunk tomorrow." -Mackenzie

"Your leather smells really great."-Ashley S.

Points

I took it upon myself to update one of the point categories because it's just not fair that dancing with Chris isn't worth a few points. As of 1/13/15, we have added in 5 points for dancing with Chris and made attending a concert worth 5 points as well. I've retroactively added 5 points for Kaitlyn from week 1's episode featuring some awkward breakdancing. And no, I didn't pick her, so it's a completely unselfish change to make.

Our wildcard points were awarded to the first lady to be bleeped for inappropriate language. Congratulations, Becca! She really earned those 20 points for saying "shit" in the limo when the zombies streaked past.

Here are how the points went down during last night's episode:

Alissa: 10 points

If it looks like I missed something, please let me know!

The Bachelor, Season 20, Week 1: The Grown-Ass Farmer


Episode Recap

Wow, that first episode was a doozy! I feel less intelligent for having watched it. I took notes about the episode to recap here, but most of them are horribly inappropriate, so I'll try to keep it clean here. Did anyone else notice how many names are spelled incorrectly? Let me draw your attention to Alissa, Juelia, Reegan, And Kale, really?

I know that most of you feel my pain because several of you still haven't finished the episode. We have lots of pregnant ladies, sick ladies, and ladies with newborns at home, so we're all watching it at our own pace. As soon as I get everyone's final 3 picks, I'll send out the standings. Some of you are really gambling!

Cody-Code lingering in the corn fields was a little creepy, right? I know that Chris has to be in shape, but that was just too much for me. The obligatory tractor-riding, vacant building-sitting, and beer-drinking shots were inevitable, and I can almost predict the editing formula of each episode. "Okay, zoom in on her face and she sits under a tree in her hometown pondering life, then cut to the scene where she's happy at work, and then end with the shot of her running and pausing on the bridge to soak up this amazing opportunity she has at finding love."It's predictable, yet we all still choose to watch. At least we all have each other, right?

I love that they decorated the set with sunflowers instead of roses. I thought it was a nice country touch. I selfishly hope that we get lots of other country life thrown into this season. Maybe we can see Tara bring some respect back to the country girls of the world.

Let's chat for a moment about the red carpet. It was like an awkward middle school dance: everyone was taking selfies, standing within the camera's view, texting, wearing ridiculous outfits, and pretending like they were having really in-depth and meaningful conversations. We've seen enough of some of them after Bachelor Pad and Bachelor in Paradise, and they just need to move on with their lives. I hope they don't do that for the finale. I don't think I can stomach all of that again.

We can all look forward to a romp in a tent, some medical attention, girls that refuse to accept rejection, crying, fun facts about onions, lots of farming puns, and more crying. Can't wait!

Quoted

"Love is a lot like farming; you plant a seed, you hope it grows. Sometimes, the weather isn't always on your side, but, with a little bit of luck, something beautiful can come from it." -Chris Soules

"I wish I was a polygamist." -Chris Soules

"I think that love can feel a lot like flying. You know, because, when you're up, you're up, and you feel amazing, and you feel like you're just kind of soaring through the clouds, and you're on top of the world." -Alissa

"First of all, it's really hard to have a relationship that's, like, seen in the public eye." -Nikki

"We are definitely planning this year. Hopefully, in the summer time. Um, we're a little 80/40 on the exact date right now."-Lacey

"His smile? It's just a panty-dropper." -Amanda

"You can plow the fuck out of my field any day." -Kaitlyn

"Why did the walrus go to the tupperware party? Because he wanted to find a tight seal." -Kaitlyn

"Is alfalfa organic?" -Mackenzie

"I do not love that there's a million bitches inside this house right now." -Jordan

The Bachelor, Season 20: Prince Farming



Hey, y'all! Welcome to a brand new season of The Bachelor. Season 20 features Chris Soules, AKA Prince Farming, a stylish farmer from Iowa that Andi sent home last year. We've got a great crop of girls for you this season!

Here are some details about how this season's scoring will go. Every Tuesday, I'll send out an updated spreadsheet that details your points for the week, a recap of your points from past weeks, and your grand total. After the finale, we will total up all of your points from the entire season. Third place will get their money back, second place will get triple their money back, and first place will get the rest of the pot. We have 14 teams confirmed at the moment, which means first place will receive just under $200 (the actual amount will be $200 minus the PayPal fees). 

We hope you'll join us for all of the fun!

Mid-season Draft (Brand New!)

This season, our league is trying something new to spice it up. When there are 10 ladies left, you’ll have the option to trade one of your players or replace an ousted player with one of the remaining bachelorettes.

For example, if my team is down to two ladies, I can draft one of the remaining ten to my team for a new total of three active players. Or, if I still have a full team of five, I can trade one of my players for a bachelorette I think has a better chance of winning. Spicy, no?

Points Categories

*UPDATE* It's just not fair that dancing with Chris isn't worth a few points, so as of 1/13/15, we have added in 5 points for dancing with Chris and made attending a concert worth 5 points as well. I've retroactively added 5 points for Kaitlyn from week 1's episode featuring some awkward breakdancing.

You’ll be rewarded for drafting bold contestants but more so for drafting contestants who go the distance. Points are divided into Phrases, Actions, and Roses.

We’ve added a new wildcard point category to keep things fresh throughout the season!

Phrases
  • Talking about her parents’ relationship (5 points)
  • Talking about her kid (5 points)
  • Mentioning a deceased loved one (10 points)
  • Talking about an ex-fiance or ex-wife (10 points)
  • Saying “I’m not here to make friends” (20 points)
  • Saying “I’m falling for you” to Chris or “I’m falling for him” to the camera (20 points)
  • Saying “I love you” to Chris (30 points)
  • Telling Chris that someone in the house “is not here for the right reasons” (30 points)

Actions
  • Interrupting someone’s one-on-one time (5 points)
  • Bonus: using the phrase “steal Chris away” during said interruption (5 points)
  • Dancing with Chris (5 points) *NEW*
  • Attending a concert with Chris (5 points) *NEW*
  • Singing/playing an instrument for Chris (5 points)
  • Hot tubbing (5 points)
  • Giving the Bachelor a gift (5 points)
  • Going on a picnic (5 points)
  • Must be sitting on the ground
  • Riding in a helicopter (10 points)
  • Kissing Chris on the lips (10 points)
  • Appearing visibly drunk (15 points)
  • Needing medical attention at any point (20 points)
  • Crying on camera (25 points)
  • Must actually see moisture fall
  • Having a secret boyfriend at home (25 points)
  • Having a body part blurred out any point (30 points)
  • Only for nudity; having your mouth blurred for profanity doesn’t count
  • Leaving the show early on his own accord (30 points)
  • Drafting the next Bachelorette on your team (40 points)
  • Coming back to the show to beg for another chance (50 points)

Roses
  • Getting the First Impression Rose (35 points, only available first night)
  • Being selected to go on a group date (10 points)
  • Being selected to go on a one-on-one date (20 points)
  • Getting the rose to stay another week (25 points)
  • Getting the rose on a group date (30 points)
  • Getting the rose on a two-on-one date (40 points)
  • Making it to Hometown Dates (50 points)
  • Accepting the Fantasy Suite (75 points)
  • Refusing the Fantasy Suite (-75 points)
  • Winning the Final Rose (100 points)
Wildcard Points (Brand New!)
Another addition we’re making this season is a wildcard point category. Each week, we’ll announce the upcoming wildcard category for the week. It will change weekly and is only awarded to one lady per episode. For example, one wildcard category might be: the first lady to be shown on camera in a bikini this week gets 40 points.

The Bachelorette, Season 10: Finale

I'm sad to say that this is our final points update for this season of the Bachelorette. It was a relatively unexciting season, and I really hope that the next bachelor steps up his dates game. Can we please get some more helicopter rides and hot tub action? Here's how our boys did this week:

Josh: 165 points
  • Kissing Andi on the lips (10 points)
  • Going on a one on one date (20 points)
  • Saying “I love you” to Andi (30 points)
  • Giving Andi a gift (letter) (5 points)
  • Winning the Final Rose (100 points)

Nick: 125 points
  • Talking about an ex-fiance or ex-wife (10 points)
  • Giving Andi a gift (5 points)
  • Kissing Andi on the lips (10 points)
  • Saying “I love you” to Andi (30 points)
  • Going on a one on one date (20 points)
  • Coming back to the show to beg for another chance (50 points)


We had an 11-way tie for first place for this episode because 11 of us drafted Josh M. on our team. Ashlee was our BIG winner this season with 2,270 points, which just goes to show that you don't have to draft "the chosen one" on your team to swoop up on some points. Selena came in second with 2,120 points, and Ellen came in third with 1,960 points. No one was awarded points for drafting the next bachelor on their team because ABC hasn't announced it yet. I looked at the points, and gaining or missing out on those points wouldn't affect the scoreboard, so I'm crowning the winners of this season before the announcement.

The pot came out to $268.04 after all of the PayPal fees. The payouts are approximately 50% for first place, 35% for second place, and 15% for third place. I rounded up the change for second and third place, and all the rest will go to our big winner. So...Ellen is getting $40, Selena is getting $94, and Ashlee is getting 134.04. Not too shabby, huh?!

We would LOVE to have you join us for the upcoming season of The Bachelor. I am working on some new point categories for next season, so PLEASE submit any ideas you have to peters.est.2012@gmail.com so that I can start a running list. Thanks for playing. See y'all next season!

xoxo

The Bachelorette, Season 10, Episode 9: Fantasy Suites

Poor Farmer Chris...I was sad to see him go. He's been one of my favorites since day 1 when I read the bios. He wasn't a good fir for Andi, but I think he'd be just perfect for my BFF Selena. Planes fly to Iowa so that I could go visit, right?!

Here's how the points added up this week:

Chris – 90 points (It’s going to be a lonely tractor ride home)
  • Being selected to go on a one-on-one date (2o points)
  • Kissing Andi on the lips (10 points)

The Bachelorette, Season 10, Episode 8: Hometowns

Didn't last night's ending just break your heart?! I can completely sympathize with Andi's guilt as she recalled her last conversation with Eric. I loved how Marcus shared his appreciation for his older brother with his brother also. Sometimes, we forget to tell those closest to us how much they mean to us, and we never know when someone will leave our lives. I was happy to see that Andi and the remaining 4 bachelors all met together at Chris Harrison's house to receive the news. There's no good way to segment here, so...

Here's how the points added up this week:

Chris – 45 points
  • Kissing Andi (10 points)
  • Going on a picnic (5 points)
  • Giving Andi a gift (the plane with the banner message) (5 points)
  • Getting the rose to stay on another week (25 points)

Josh – 80 points
  • Saying “I’m falling in love with her” to the camera (20 points)
  • Kissing Andi (10 points)
  • Crying on camera (25 points)
  • Getting the rose to stay another week (25 points)

Marcus – 65 points (time to retire that sailor suit)
  • Saying “I love you” to Andi (30 points)
  • Kissing Andi (10 points)
  • Crying on camera (25 points)

Nick – 85 points
  • Saying “I’m falling for you” to Andi (20 points)
  • Kissing Andi (10 points)
  • Dancing at a concert (5 points)
  • Crying on camera (25 points)
  • Getting the rose to stay another week (25 points)

This week, Ashlee's team scored the most points at 195, and there was a two-way tie for second place at 190 points for Ellen and Selena. For the season overall, Ashlee is STILL in the lead with 1865 points, Selena is trailing just behind her at 1705 points, and there's a two-way tie for third place between Ellen and Jessica, both with 1545 points.

Okay, fantasy suites, let’s see what you've got! Our only hope of taking over the lead next week is having Nick refuse the fantasy suite.
