If Arie Luyendyk Jr. and his bread-like personality haven’t bored you to death and you watched “The Bachelor” in between snowboarding and skiing of the Olympics, you found yourself in Tuscany, Italy with a few ladies and it’s all dates and no rose ceremonies. If you didn’t record the Olympics, you really should find Chloe Kim’s final snowboarding run, because it was much, much better than watching Arie stare blankly at these ladies for 2 hours.
For Arie, this week is all about making sure the ladies are ready to introduce him to their parents. Honestly, he should be worried about that because he hasn’t had a real conversation with most of them– minus Krystal. And he sent crazy home last week.
As Arie was on his date with Becca and they were eating cheese and bread (ideal), Jacqueline was back with the other ladies discussing all of her fears and doubts, saying, “I don’t think that introducing somebody to my family…. after a date where I had doubts is, like, the right way to go about my relationship.” Ummm, yes. Correct.
Everyone forgets about Becca (she gets a rose and Arie is headed to Minnesota or something to meet her family) and her date, as Jacqueline says she needs to go talk with Arie.
Jacqueline tells Arie she doesn’t know how this conversation is going to go, but it’s pretty obvious from the get-go and eventually delivers a knockout punch with the line, “I’m worried that I’m going to end up in Scottsdale, with you, married, wondering, ‘How did I get here?!’ “
Oh, honey, if that is something you’re afraid of– run. Run. And she does.
When it’s time for Arie’s date with Lauren B., the final Lauren left, the paint is really started to dry between these two. They both say they have this connection, but I know more about my 7th grade boyfriend, who I haven’t seen in 10 years (but, he invited my parents to his wedding) than these two know about each other.
Arie keeps asking Lauren for words and feelings and when she said, “The way I feel now, every time I’m with you — it’s very obvious to me that I feel like I am starting fall in love with you,” he literally got up and left the table. Like, he left her sitting there alone.
Eventually, he came back and she was like, “WTF,” but he gave her a rose and she was happy?
Sienne gets the last one-on-one date and like, she’s the real deal, but of course, Arie isn’t feeling it. He told her, “”I just haven’t felt things that I feel like I should be feeling at this moment. I feel like we should be further along than this, and I just want to tell you that I can’t give you the rose. It’s not anything that you did — I’m just following my heart.” Cool.
Now, it’s time for the group date and we’ve got Kendall, Bekah M. and Tia.
Tia decides to do the one thing you shouldn’t do on this show– talk about another girl when you get alone time with the Bach. But, in a bold move, Tia told Bekah everything she said to Arie, which led Bekah to tears and she ran off to find Arie.
Blah, blah, blah– Arie gave a rose to Kendall and then had a two-on-one date with Tia and baby Bekah.
Tia got the rose and we’re headed to Arkansas!
12 Hilariously Savage Tweets About Episode 7 of “The Bachelor” with Arie Luyendyk Jr.:
It’s really sad when you read it outloud.
Right? But, he did pick the small loaf of bread, so that’s a no from me dawg.
You said it!
OMG. This is just so spot-on, but you know, we need a Ken doll. Arie is such a Ken doll.
Hey, whatever makes the show easier for you to watch.
LOL. Oh, man.
I’ve thought about that every episode for the past 36 years this show has been on. The men, when they’re on “The Bachelorette” are even worse. They’re like, literally BFF and are totally chill when they get dumped.
It’s what you call a “self-soothe.”
Bekah’s 3-hour tour is coming to a close.
It’s simple math!
Yeah, we’re gonna need a follow-up to that! Where’s Chris Harrison with the info? Does he still work here? Can we see the manager about this?
