Viewing Notes: The Bachelorette (Becca) – Ep. 7

I just want to point out how cool it is knowing that people who don’t watch The Bachelorette, read these Viewing Notes and become invested in the show. Your comments – especially the ones from last week – are much appreciated and make me feel like a cult leader every time.

This feels like a new genre. Not virtual reality, but virtual viewing. Like you look at words and an image appears in your head! There’s nothing like it in the world today.

Yes, I know it’s called “reading”. That’s the joke. Save your comments.

Back again this week to share her thoughts and balance my stupidity, is Cass! Her thoughts will be in bold.

~ We are in the Bahamas this week and I can’t wait!

~ Becca talks about these destinations as if she likes them more than she likes the guys.

~ The guys enter their suite, while Becca is talking to Chris Harrison who has his sleeves rolled up for the first time this season! Finally.

~ They’re having a conversation that 99% of society has via text, rather than sitting next to each other on a couch with their legs crossed. This is such a TV show.

~ “No drama” lol.

~ Oh boy, she’s falling in love.

~ Becca goes to see the guys and no one stands up.

~ There is no Rose Ceremony; there are four dates for six guys.

~ Colton gets the first one-on-one date and everyone is shocked.

~ Colton has another secret…oh my.

~ Oh, the first half hour of this episode is going to be about how Colton is a virgin and if he will share this secret, or not.

~ Did she just say he has blonde hair?? Is she colour blind?

~ Wait, I thought he did have blonde hair…..

~ Becca and Colton will be spending the day on a catamaran.

~ I hope they don’t have to feed a pet, or water a plant, or something. Oh right, it’s a TV show. Silly me. It’s so easy to forget sometimes….

~ A guy on a yellow boat appears, jumps aboard their catamaran, and says stuff that prompts them to dive in the water.

~ The last four minutes desperately needed subtitles.

~ It’s time for dinner and Colton tells her his secret.

~ “Really?” – Becca

~ Becca is looking like he just told her he spent five years in jail. Oh, now she’s left the table.

~ He just told her the biggest secret ever and she goes out for air.

~ Almost feels orchestrated.

~ Didn’t Arie do this last season when Lauren told him she loved him? He got up from the table and left?

~ How much you wanna bet Becs thought he was like super experienced?

~ Becca has a tattoo of a cross on her hand. Oh, the layers to this nonsense.

~ Becca, your dinner is getting cold. Get back in there!

~ She’s returned to the table and looks so sad while talking to him.

~ This is making me nervous too, Colton.

~ “I would never judge you.” – Becca

~ The video evidence proves otherwise.

~ She’s giving him a rose because it would be a bad look to send him home now, so she’ll just meet his family next week and then send him home after that.

~ There are literally so many secrets with him, why is she giving him a rose.

~ “Getting the rose means she accepts me for who I am.” – Colton

~ Eh, this is a PR move.

~ So she’s meeting Colton’s family, now I’m nervous about who’s going home.

~ Garrett gets the next one-on-one date.

~ Not surprised Garrett got the next date card.

~ Blake is losing his mind because he only gets to talk to his girlfriend when she’s not hanging out with her other boyfriends.

~ Blake is having a low-key heart attack.

~ Don’t worry Blake, I’ll date you.

~ Garrett and Becca are on a beach. They’re getting on a seaplane. It is named Tia. Colton should’ve had this date.

~ They’re having a picnic on a private beach and Becca tells the camera that she feels like they’re the only people on Earth right now.


~ Weekly reminder that I know nothing about Becca.

~ They do typical Bachelorette-Beach Date stuff, etc.

~ Yes Garret, life is short.

~ Back at the Bro house, Blake is getting the next date, which means Wills, Tarzan, and Jason have a 3-on-1, which means they should all just self-evict now.

~ If there are 6 people left and you’re still going on group dates, you ain’t the one.

~ Blake can finally breathe a little better.

~ These guys need to leave the hotel room and enjoy the Bahamas weather a little.

~ Guys, Will better get the rose on the group date, just saying.

~ The last girl Garrett brought home to meet his parents was his ex-wife.

~ Jeeze, his ex-wife was the last girl he brought home.

~ It’s around this part in every season where the show shifts from “Let’s get to know each other” to “I need to convince her to pick me in the end”.

~ Garrett tells her he’s falling in love with her and she gives him a rose.

~ My tea is ice cold, but I’m too lazy to pause the DVR and warm it up.

~ Awh the guys are talking about Blake cracking a little. I mean, he did.

~ Blake and Becca meet up on the beach, of course.

~ They’re at a beach party, dancing to music.

~ Damn, The Baha Men are making a comeback via The Bachelorette.

There are about 19 people at this thing. The camera angles make it look more full than it is.

~ These dance moves are so bad.

~ Actually, these moves remind me of a drunk guy I recently got pulled into dancing with at a country concert. Block that out, Cass..

~ Becca says she sympathizes with Arie and can see how he liked more than one person at the end.

~ Omg she brought up Arie…no stop.

~ They hugged, they danced, they kissed, they squinted because it was sunny, and now they’re going for dinner.

~ Oh my Lord, Colton wants Blake to go home because he is a front-runner.

~ Remember Connor and how he barely had any buttons done up…meet Blake, he does all his buttons up.

~ Blake tells her he is in love with her.

~ Becca says he’s the first guy to tell her that. “He’s no longer falling, he’s there.”

And just like that, all is well with Hair B&B. I have neglected that nickname and I’m sorry.

~ Blake gets a rose.

~ GO BLAKE!!!!

~ So not ready for this group date…

~ Wills, Tarzan, and Jason are now going on their date. They’re getting on a boat and aren’t talking to each other.

~ What is this, the first episode of Survivor?

~ They’re playing beach volleyball with Becca now. This feels like a consolation date, might as well just give them a $50 gift card and send them home.

~ Wills tells her his parents will be celebrating their 50th anniversary next year.

~ Jason and Becca have a chat where Becca doesn’t really talk, just accepts compliments.

~ Tarzan asks her if he is where the other guys are, since they’ve had more time with her.

~ He’s finally putting the pieces together and realizing the only 1-on-1 date he had was after Becca had a rough day and needed someone to vent to.

~ Becca is taking this opportunity to send him home. Or in this case, leave him on the beach.

~ Oh my Lord, Leo lasted longer than I thought he would!

~ I mean, I personally wouldn’t mind getting left on a beach…

~ The person who finishes in 6th place on this show never had a real shot at winning, it’s just they didn’t do anything wrong to get sent home sooner.

~ It’s no man’s land. Or in this case, no woman’s land.

~ Becca is now at an ominous dinner with Wills and Jason. There wouldn’t have been a spot at this table for Tarzan, anyway. The camera shot would be tricky with four people at a round table.

~ Another great outfit choice for Becs.

~ Becca sees Jason as a risk because he’s not as vocal as others about how he’s feeling.

~ “I have no doubt that I love Becca.” – Wills

~ Yet he’s only ever said to her that he’s “falling in love”. Becca doesn’t take that as meaning the same thing, Wills!

~ She’s giving Jason the rose. Wills is going home.

~ How can she send Wills home, I’m actually heartbroken.

~ My heart is actually broken right now.

~ Wills brought a lot to this show – customized clothes et al.

~ “I wanted to be there with you.” – Becca

~ Wills goes home in disbelief.

~ On that note, good night.

~ Side note: Next week is hometowns. 

~ Next week, we meet the families…

~ But we won’t meet Wills’ family, which is heartbreaking. 

~ Also, Tia makes a return with some news….clearly about Colton, obviously.

See you next week!

    Is it sad that I look forward to Tuesdays because I know your and Cass’s Bachelorette recap is coming? I think the group date at this stage—if there are only like six guys left—is weird, especially if the hometown dates are next week. I only watched three seasons of the show and I feel like she should have it narrowed down by now and there shouldn’t be group dates?

    I know we’re a few weeks out from the finale but I find it weird when it’s the Bachelorette and she has the guys propose to her and she basically says “Thanks but no thanks” to one after he’s done. That’s gotta suck. At least when it’s the Bachelor, he just turns one girl down and then proposes to the other. Right? I’m still a little foggy on this whole Bachelorette/Bachelor stuff. (Because I don’t understand how you can fall in love with someone on TV.)

      Ha, not sad at all! I’ve always thought that the lead person on this show has it narrowed down to 3-4 people after a week or two. Or at least I would. Realistically, who likes 10+ people for over a month?

      I think there have been some endings where the guy gets down on a knee and if he’s not the one getting picked, the bachelorette will awkwardly pick him up. But I think how they do it now is the guy gives a speech and then the girl says something and based on what she says, the guy proposes or doesn’t. It’s a very weird show.
