This week The Bachelorette, Rachel whittled her half dozen boyfriends down to the four who will make it to the hometown dates. Before that can happen we’ll need to attend a Catholic mass, pretend to like an expensive watch, almost get hypothermia on a dog sled, and watch Rachel cry over a man we’ve never seen before. How can you resist?
Tensions were on the rise for Rachel and her band of never’ll-be-married men. Lucky for us, week four gave us a blimp ride, a push-up contest, a spelling bee, and some casual racism from this season’s villain.
We watched the premiere of The Bachelorette so you didn’t have to.
Monday evenings in my house are pretty predictable. First, my husband and I trick our kids into an early bedtime by saying it’s only still light outside if their eyes are open. Then, we settle in for a nice evening of eating processed snacks and judging the life choices of beautiful twenty-somethings on The Bachelorette. We’re living the dream.
Most weeks on The Bachelorette, we’d happily trade places with JoJo for a few minutes in a randomly located hot tub or spooning with an Argentinian horse. Not this week. we’d rather count how many mini-Marines can fit in a single pair of gaucho pants than switch places with her during the hometown dates.
