I know there is an egg casserole to talk about and as thrilling as eggs are, I think I’m going to talk about The Bachelor instead. Last week was the season finale and it was QUITE dramatic. Especially since they extended it into two nights, so we were forced to watch 6 hours of The Bachelor. Luckily, we recorded all of it ahead of time and fast forwarded through any of Chris Harrison talking. He said 6 words throughout the season and now he think it’s his time to shine. Get out of here Chris Harrison. You wore a corduroy suit jacket in one episode. You don’t give two sh*ts. Anywho, even though I knew what happened since I listen to the Reality Steve Podcast and he spilled the beans per usual that Becca was chosen and later on said that he dumps her and goes back to Lauren, I still didn’t know what would happen on the live last episode. Maybe that’s why they did it – they are sick of Reality Steve spoiling everything.

So let’s run through the first episode quickly. It starts off with Lauren sipping champagne by herself while she journals. Talk about unrealistic. And if that’s not unrealistic for you, it’s time to question your life a little bit. Champagne is for celebrating, not journaling. Anywho, Lauren gets to meet the family first and she’s just straight up freaking out that she’s going to lose Arie. And that’s all she says to anyone she talks to in family. She cries to Arie’s mom, she says she’s been engaged before to Arie’s dad, and then complains more to Aire. We get it – you’re freaking out.

The next day, Becca is the total opposite. She’s pretty calm and collected…until the entire family starts asking her what she thinks of Lauren. Way to make her feel like dog sh*t, ya weird ass family. You’re not suppose to mention how much you like the other girl when another girl is right there. HAVEN’T YOU DONE THIS BEFORE?! Oh, you haven’t? Whatever. Even though the family asks Becca 4 billion times what she thinks of Lauren and how great they think Lauren is, they tell Arie that they think Becca is the one.

Then they go on their last dates with Arie in Peru. Lauren gets the first date and goes to Machu Picchu with her where they run away from cameras to make out. And then are immediately found since Arie is not a human being who does any sort of cardio. Their date is pretty rad since it’s at one of the new 7 wonders of the world. Then guess what Becca gets to do? She gets to go to one of those crappy markets where they sell the same crap in every single store. It’s bullsh*t. They walk around forever then barely crap cocktails that look like Big Gulps from 7 Eleven, and Arie mentions that the weather is so ominous. No Arie, it’s just super telling of your soul.

Ok, that was mean.

So now here’s the breakdown of all of it. Arie tells both women that he loves them, at least 35127892 times throughout the episode. He’s obviously in love with both of them. And he’s also really good at saying whatever is right for that moment. Typical dude. He seems to light up WAY more when he’s around Lauren, but he’s not sure why since Lauren doesn’t speak. So he goes against what his gut is saying, he dumps Lauren and then he proposes to Becca and pretends to be happy. They have all their secret getaways, but while they are doing that, he’s reaching out to Lauren on instagram. Sliding into her DM’s. So a couple months go by and he decides that he wants to dump Becca and go back to Lauren. And he does it how any logical person would do it – he gets the ABC camera crew to come with him so he can humiliate her on a national television. And it’s pretty devastating to watch. I thought Arie didn’t have much to say in the first place and watching him this season was like watching potatoes mold, but he really showed off his non-communication skills in this breakup. We watch as Becca sits in shock and finally breaks down. It’s awful. America loves Becca. And guess what? Lauren takes him back. None of us saw that coming (that’s sarcasm).

And that was only the first 3-hour night. Exhausting.

Now the second 3-hour night is live so they couldn’t edit much out. It starts off with Becca looking fuuuuuine in her gold dress and comforting Arie who still has nothing to say. I can’t wait until Becca gets out of this and finally realizes that Arie sucks bad. She’s super calm about it all and Arie has nothing to say, yet again. So they talk and it’s boring, then Becca goes backstage and Lauren comes out. In the previous episode, Lauren takes Arie back and says to him that there better be a proposal soon. And since rushing her last engagement obviously worked out, Arie rushes this one, too. He proposes right there on stage, in front of a crowd that just booed him, with an ex-fiancee backstage watching as it all unfolds, and she obviously says yes. Arie is a man of true class. That’s sarcasm again.

After the incredibly awkward proposal (it was like watching a car accident, when you just can’t turn away), we watch Becca get named the new Bachelorette and we meet 4 or 5 of the guys that will be on her season. It’s a tad awkward but not too bad since Becca is a BA and unlike Arie, she actually has personality.

So here’s my opinion on all of it, since my opinion TOTALLY matters. I completely understand falling in love with 2 people in this f*cked up show and I can see someone making the wrong decision. I’m not a person who believes in soulmates. I believe that you can love multiple people, we just choose to be monogamous. BUT, the way Arie handled all of it shows how much producers were able to manipulate him. He has no backbone. He’s literally a body of jell-o. Breaking up with someone on national television is mean and wrong. And he wasn’t contractually obligated to do that. I understand that producers probably said that it would make America love her and feel sorry for her, aka then she would become the next Bachelorette. But that would have happened anyways after she came on the show and said how much of an assh*le he was. And proposing to your new women as the one you were JUST sleeping with watches on backstage…come on dude!! You know, you can do some of this sh*t in private, right?! Ew. He’s obviously incredibly happy with Lauren so it all worked out, even if the world hates him. But that was a really sh*tty way of doing it.

In the end, I am SO PUMPED to never have to watch Arie on TV again. Worst Bachelor of all time? Totes. But I’m still the annoying hater that watched every episode. I hate myself, ok!?

Now go watch my cooking video above! I say more words in 4 minutes then Arie said this entire past season.

    Can’t wait to try this! Just curious, since you are a fan of The Bachelor series, if you’ve ever watched UNReal (a “fictitious” look of the behind scenes of a reality dating show)? The way they portray the host of the series on the show…I feel you’d really appreciate that.
