Viewing Notes: The Bachelorette Ep. 7

We are back with another lip smacking edition of The Bachelorette. I’m watching with my friend Meghan, who will also be providing commentary!

~ They are in Geneva, Switzerland this week because what better place to fall in love than somewhere far away from home, where you can’t run into people you know?

~ These guys are always dressed in black and grey and striped shirts.

~ Rachel meets up with the guys and tells them there won’t be a Rose Ceremony at the end of the week, which means Chris Harrison may not even appear in this episode.

~ But how will we know if his sleeves are rolled up or not?

~ There will be three one-on-one dates, and a three-on-one date. This is too much.

~ The first date goes to Bryopractor. She tells him to go get ready and instead of saying, “I don’t get ready, I stay ready” he goes to put on a suit. Missed opportunity.

~ Bryan and Rachel hop in an expensive car.

~ “I’m blessed.” Drink!

~ Switzerland is known for cheese and watches, says Rachel, so they go to a watch store.

~ This would be a great way to send someone home, if Rachel wanted to. “Our time is up.”

~ These two haven’t stopped kissing each other. What show is this?

~ Back at the hotel, two random contestants are talking on a porch. I’ll call them Porch Pals.

~ They are overdressed, sitting in a park(?), day drinking. Oh right, this is The Bachelorette.

~ Both of them can’t wait for the rest of the date, so they can actually talk to each other kiss each other more.

~ The next date card arrives. It’s for Mean Dean. She wants him to put on his Sunday best. What if it’s not Sunday?

~ “He’s such a catch.” Bryan is a fish.

~ Brachel are at dinner now and are in an empty music hall? There are candles everywhere. A fire could break out any minute.

~ Bryan tells Rachel that his ex-girlfriend didn’t like his mom. This means Rachel will be extra kind on hometown dates, right?

~ Why must they make out soooooo much? – Meghan

~ This date is 80% kissing.

~ Bryan got a rose.

~ Time for Dean’s date. Meghan would apply for the show if he is the Bachelor.

~ They are going to church. Dean is excited. Of course he is.

~ Rachel and Dean come across a couple that have been married for 40 years. These “chance encounters” with old couples are so staged.

~ Does Switzerland have a formal dress code I don’t know about?

~ “I want to challenge our relationship.” Drink!

~ Rachel’s favourite days are real chill. As opposed to fake chill.

~ Dean says his family is not normal.

~ Now Eric and Peter are on the porch for another edition of Porch Pals!

~ Dean asked her what her favourite dinosaur is. She didn’t answer. RED FLAG!

~ She doesn’t like when he jokes around too much, yet this is her favourite kind of day – real chill. MIXED SIGNALS!

~ Peter gets the next one-on-one date and the other three see the writing on the wall. It says, “You ain’t the one.”

~ “I love spending time with Dean, but….” – Rachel

~ Dean tells her that today was weird and laughs. Rachel tells him to knock it off.

~ Dean: “I really really like you.” I think Carly Rae Jepsen said it better, sir.

~ “My family is not the family you’re going to want to see.” – Dean

~ “Ugh he’s like a puppy.” – Meghan

~ Rachel says she would love to meet his family. I don’t think this ends well.

~ She gives him a rose.

~ Triumphant music plays as they kiss by the water. Any second now the director will yell “Cut!”

~ Meghan just tweeted Dean a picture of her dog and Dean liked it immediately!

~ “Yooooo. It’s on.” – Meghan

I smell a puppy love connection.

~ Back to the other show going on right now. Peter and Rachel are in a helicopter. Peter is excited. Of course he is.

~ They are going dogsledding! Man, Dean missed out on this one didn’t he Meghan?

~ Back with episode 3 of Porch Pals with Eric and Bryan. Eric is officially a recurring guest on this show. Not good.

~ Peter tells her he’s thought about leaving. What a smart fellow. He realizes how ridiculous this whole thing is.

~ Rachel: “There’s still a lot we haven’t talked about.” No kidding.

~ I’m now suggesting pick-up lines for Meghan to tweet to Dean.

~ “Hey Dean, I live in the DMV and I wanna DM U.”

~ For context, Dean’s initials are DMU. Brilliant, eh?

~ Meghan is dying of laughter. Success!

~ Through all this hilarity, Peter and Rachel are at dinner where…all together now…We. Don’t. Get. To. See. Them. Eat. Any. Food.

~ Peter says he won’t propose unless he’s 100% sure. This scares Rachel because this show relies on a proposal at the end.

~ Eric, Matt, and Adam get their date card. Meghan and I don’t think any of them have a shot with Rachel.

~ Normal Person Peter gets a rose.

~ “Do I care about these last three guys?” – Meghan

~ Meghan wants Who’s Clues member, Adam, to get a rose.

~ They’re hopping on a boat to go to France.

~ Bonjour!

~ Remember last episode where she took that guy to Sweden just to dump him? The same thing is going to happen here, isn’t it?

Au revoir.

~ Eric is a close talker.

~ Matt goes on a long speech about how he’s been patient.

~ Rachel starts crying and tells him other relationships are further along than theirs. Obviously.

~ Byeeeeee Matt. Now get rid of Eric pleaseeeeeeee. – Meghan

Rachel: “It wasn’t right for me to bring him along.”

~ You took him to another country to dump him, what do you mean you didn’t want to “bring him along.” He’s already been brought!

~ She knew before this date that Matt was going home, yet still brought him to France.

~ Adam asks Rachel if she sees herself falling in love with him. She says yes. This will be interesting if/when he goes home in 7 minutes.

~ “When I’m with you, I don’t even feel like Eric is here.” Good one, Adam, good one.

~ Adam gives his plea to stay.

~ Now Eric is talking to Rachel and he is in a suit.

~ Does France also have a dress code?

~ I know it’s a date and they’re on a TV show, but they’re all dressed too professionally.

~ Eric tells Rachel he has never brought a girl home.

~ Whoever gets the rose tonight will get sent home next week, that’s my prediction. Has Adam even been on a one-on-one yet?

~ The rose goes to Eric!

~ Now over to Meghan for her reaction….


~ Hometown dates are next week.

~ Meghan is predicting that Peter will win based on the previews.

That’s all. Thanks for reading and thanks to Meghan for watching with me! See ya next week, I guess.

About Paul

This is the part where I'm supposed to write something interesting about myself and you'll read it and think, "That's not that interesting." So let's not do that and just think about pizza instead, on the count of three. One, two, three. Donuts. Now, wasn't that interesting?
