champion-which bachelor alum podcast should you download?

So I might be the worst Bachelor recapper in the world. My life has gotten twice as busy in the past week – I started a six-week class, that I’m hanging out in for up to 4 hours a night after work. I haven’t even watched last week’s episode! I might tap out on Rachel’s season, and recap Paradise – because that is gif gold.

All that being said, I definitely haven’t tapped out on Bachelor Nation. Recently, a ton of Bachelor alum have started podcasts. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a podcast junkie, I literally listen to them all day at work. I thought I’d take a listen to them all for you, and let you know which ones are worth a listen, and which you can skip (spoiler alert: I’m not going to skip any of them).

KaitlynPodcast_OffTheVine

Kaitlyn’s podcast, Off the Vine, is by far my favorite. I think she is funny and engaging, and I love that she is drinking wine the entire time. Her podcast is fairly new, so I’m not sure that she has completely found her voice/focus, but I enjoy all the avenues she is exploring. So far, she has had Bachelor alum, country singers, and body positive influencers join her in the studio. Kaitlyn uses her signature personality and sense of humor to bring you in and feel like you’re listening to a conversation amongst your friends. You can listen here, or on iTunes.

AshleyI_IDon'tGetIt

I was never a big Ashley I fan on Chris’s season, but her forays into Paradise and her post-Bachelor career in the entertainment industry has changed my opinion. She’s killing the podcast game, doing interviews for Access Hollywood and even can be found in the new Fall Out Boy video! Ashley hosts this podcast with her sister, Lauren, and close friend/Bachelor producer Naz Perez. The girls talk about all the things they don’t get in life, and mostly in dating. You will frequently find Bachelor alum on this podcast as well, along with celebrity guests (I’m looking at you Aaron Carter). I relate to Ashley’s boy band crazy personality, and it’s fun to listen to her talk with her friends about the craziness that is being in your twenties. You can subscribe and listen on iTunes.

OliviaCaridi_MouthingOff

Olivia Caridi, the former Bachelor villain, hosts a podcast where she talks to reality TV stars about their careers and shows. She is much more likable on her podcast than she was on Ben’s season, but I don’t know that she gives you anything content wise that you can’t find anywhere else. I think not having a regular co-host hurts her, as I don’t find her personality engaging enough to carry a show like I do Kaitlyn’s. She has had some interesting guests on in the past, such as  Shep and Craig from Southern Charm and Lala from Vanderpump Rules, so if those shows are your thing (raises hand), I still think you will enjoy her conversations. You can listen here, or subscribe on iTunes.

BenAndAshley_Almost Famous

I have a deep seated love for Ben Higgins, so it pains me to put his podcast with Ashley I last on my list. The format of this show is just a little odd. The transitions between topics and ad reads could definitely use some work and they take calls from listeners (I think it may air live on I Heart Radio). The callers spend most of their time fangirling over the two of them, and not addressing the topic that they are supposedly calling in about.  Ashley and Ben recap the week’s episode of the Bachelor for part of the show, so their insight is interesting. I’m hoping that they tweak the format of the show a bit, because the two of them do have great chemistry, and I think the podcast could be quite good. You can listen here, or you guessed it, subscribe on iTunes.

Have you listened to any of the Bachelor alum podcasts? What did you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments or @third_and_girl!

who let the dogs out-rachel:week 2

As much as I want to write 1000 words about Copper and his pool party, I’m not sure that is what you guys are here for. That being said, expect a BUNCH of dog party gifs.

My Takeaways

Rachel_Episode 2_Dog Party 1

The first date of the week is a group date, where after a BBQ and some backyard football, the men compete to show Rachel who is the best “husband material”. The relay race includes changing a diaper, vacuuming, unclogging a drain, and setting a table. The star power was amped up big time this episode, with Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis serving as guest judges for the competition. I know that tons of celebrities are fans of the Bachelor, but I think it speaks to the popularity of Rachel that two A-list celebrities wanted to come on and help her find love.

Rachel_Episode 2_Ashton and Mila

Unfortunately, Whaboom (this is what most of the men call him, and I think it’s funny so I’m going to join them) wins the competition. I’m unsure if he won any extra time with Rachel, or if he is so boring that they just didn’t show it. I was rooting for Kenny in this race because as a dad it seemed like he actually had the most experience in this arena. And he knew better than to dunk the babies head in the sink while “unclogging the drain”.

During the evening, Rachel and the guys spend time, and Rachel is #unimpressed. None of the men are wowing her, filling her time with uninspired conversations, and the inability to make a move. The only guys who even attempt interesting conversation are Dean, who Rachel shares a sense of humor with, and Kenny, who tells Rachel about his daughter. We also find out on this date that Whaboom and Blake know each other from outside of the show. Blake says that he used to live with Lucas’s ex-girlfriend and that he knows he is there just to gain publicity. Funny that Blake would say that, as Whaboom and Blake were on the same season of a show called ‘Ex Isle’, where couples came to fix their relationships, only to be tempted by ‘sexy singles’. Lucas was there with his ex-girlfriend (the same one that Blake lived with), and Blake was there to try and create friction in the relationship. I don’t blame either of them for not liking the other, but it’s a bit of the pot calling the kettle black for Blake to say Lucas is there for the wrong reasons. Dean gets the group date rose, and finally takes initiative and kisses Rachel as he walks her out.
_____

Rachel_Episode 2_Copper ArrivesThis has got to be the greatest surprise of Peter’s life.

Is everyone ready to swoon? Peter gets the first one-on-one date, and Rachel is taking him to Palm Springs on a private jet. Not only that, her dog Copper is going along, and they are going to a dog pool party. If any of you know me, you know that this is literally my dream. I want to live at this dog pool party.

Rachel_Episode 2_Dog Party 2

It took awhile for me to settle down from seeing all those dogs, but once I did I liked what I saw. Rachel and Peter have an ease about their relationship that can’t be manufactured, you either have it or you don’t. At night, Peter and Rachel bond over their mutual love of therapy and gapped teeth. The therapy conversation was interesting because it showed that both of them are interested in improving themselves, and are not afraid to ask for help when it comes to relationships. I think that this will help them both immensely as their relationship progresses.
_____

The last date was another one I would love, a basketball date featuring Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. This season is really amping up the star power. The men were put through drills by Kareem, and he essentially just made fun of them the entire time. It was fantastic. DeMario and Eric thought they were ballers on the court, but only one of them could back up their talk with an actual game. Unfortunately for DeMario, that wasn’t the only game he was playing.

At the conclusion of the date, Rachel is confronted by Lexi, a girl claiming to be DeMario’s girlfriend. He essentially ghosted her upon coming on the show, and she had the text messages to prove it. There were so many great moments in this exchange; whether it be the look on DeMario’s face when he recognizes Lexi and then remembers that he has to pretend he doesn’t know who she is or, Rachel telling him to ‘Get the F*&! out’. Gold.

Rachel_Episode 2_DeMario Reaction

Rachel is upset by this whole exchange and tells the remaining men that she isn’t there to play games and if they are they can get out as well. I was surprised that she chose to have the nighttime portion of the date. In the past, I feel like if the lead has a large disruption to their process like this, they normally cancel the nighttime portion because the day has just been too much. At night, all the men seemed very concerned about Rachel, and how she is holding up after the afternoon’s shocker. She has the best conversation with Josiah and gives him the group date rose.

At the rose ceremony, an uninvited guest shows up. Any guesses who? Obviously DeMario comes back to talk to Rachel. We don’t get to see if Rachel allows him to talk to her as the episode ends with Mr. Harrison (as the security guard calls him) telling Rachel of DeMario’s arrival. To be Continued….

Best Dressed

Obviously Rachel is always going to be the best dressed in this season, unless her gal pals make more appearances. Here are the details on some of her outfits from this episode!

Rachel_Episode 2_BBQ DressFor the afternoon BBQ, Rachel opted for a fun floral dress. Her dress is Self-Portrait and can be found here.

Rachel_Episode 2_Purple Sparkle DressRachel wore this sparkly shift dress to the nighttime portion of her basketball date. This dress is Mlv and appears to be sold out. I found a similar dress in a different color which can be found here (and it’s on sale! WOOT!).

Rachel_Episode 2_Zipper DressThis zipper detailed dress Rachel wore is absolute fire. This dress is by Michelle Mason, and can be found here (at over 50% off).

Rachel_Episode 2_Rose Ceremony DressRachel’s rose ceremony dress is by Mac Duggal and can be bought here.

Rachel_Episode 2_SweaterI tried so hard to find this asymmetrical ribbed sweater that Rachel wore to play with Copper. Alas, I didn’t have any luck. I did find a pretty similar sweater here, although it has a bit of a high price tag.

What did you guys think of Episode 2 of Rachel’s quest to find love? I’m still loving Peter and Kenny, and am looking forward to getting to know even more of the men!

just a friend-jojo: week 5

Finally! I’m back with a Bachelorette recap for JoJo’s fifth week in her journey to find love.  A thief can steal my computer and prevent me from making gifs, but they can’t stop love.

While I was offline, we sadly saw the end of Chad.  I hate that I didn’t have a computer available to me to comment on Chad’s antics in the house – which culminated in him whistling in the woods after being denied the rose.  God, I’ll miss the Chad-bear, and can’t wait to see him on Paradise.

I was hoping that this season would be the one I would recap in its entirety, but alas, it was not meant to be. Maybe next season (which in my dream world would be led by the token good-guy James Taylor).

My Takeaways

1. We’re in Argentina this week, and Chris Harrison drops the bomb that there will be another 2-on-1 date this season, as well as a group date and a 1-on-1.  Inexplicably, he also tells the guys that he hopes to see them all at the rose ceremony, when that is actually impossible with a 2-on-1 this week.

Wells gets the 1-on-1 date, and for some reason reminds the guys that he is the only one who hasn’t kissed JoJo.  This gives the guys the opportunity to awkwardly bring that fact up when JoJo stops by to pick Wells up for their date, and then continue to talk about it for what seemed like a very long time. I think all of the talk of Wells not kissing JoJo put way too much pressure on the beginning of the date, which I think the editors agreed with. The montage of them walking around the streets of Argentina was accompanied by some seriously awkward music.

Wells_Awkward_Hi5

JoJo takes Wells to a performance art space that actually seems pretty cool.  I don’t consider myself artistically sophisticated enough to understand the running on the treadmill and getting shot piece, but I could get down with that slip-and-slide pool.  Wells decides that sliding around a pool in the dark is the right time to kiss JoJo, and finally lays one on her.  I loved that she called the kiss out, yelling, “That was the moment Wells, that was the moment! We did it!” It was cute and playful – much like their relationship.

At dinner, JoJo asks Wells about his previous relationship, and they get into a discussion about what they are looking for.  JoJo doesn’t want to believe that the passion in a relationship ever subsides, and wants to always look at her husband and think about how hot and attracted to him she is.  Wells is a bit more skeptical of the “unicorn” love that JoJo describes, leading JoJo to the realization that they may not be looking for the same thing.  Sadly, JoJo doesn’t give Wells the rose, sending him packing.

JoJo doesn’t need a man because she goes back to the performance art space, where she was clearly supposed to take Wells, had she given him the rose.  Her black co-ord paired with her leather jacket made her look like such a bad ass.  Just look at girlfriend strutting around:

JoJo_BadAss Strut

2. During the group date, JoJo took Alex, James, Luke, Robby, and Jordan to wander the streets of Argentina, where they danced with street performers, and played soccer with some locals.  Honestly, this date was pretty boring.  I did get a little enthused when they had a soccer shoot-out to win a kiss from JoJo and James was the only one shown making a goal.  I have such a soft spot for that guy.

At the cocktail party, Luke and JoJo make out. And I mean MAKE OUT.

Chemistry is Crazy_JoJo
Their chemistry is cra-zy.

With his time alone with JoJo, James brings up how he thinks Jordan can feel entitled based on his background.  He tells her a story about how they were playing poker and he felt as though his opinions were disregarded by Jordan.  In his ITMs, James says that he wanted JoJo to know what kind of guy Jordan was, but I think that James was just feeling a little insecure from the date.  Although he was the only one to score a kiss from JoJo, he mentioned many times that he felt out of place with the other guys, and that he felt they were much better than him.  I think by telling JoJo this story about Jordan, he was trying to show her what he had over the other guys, and subliminally trying to compensate for his own insecurities.

When JoJo has her personal time with Jordan, she brings up her conversation with James, and Jordan knows exactly what incident she is talking about.  I found Jordan to be very defensive when explaining the situation to JoJo. In the situation he states, “No James, those actually are just the rules, those aren’t my rules”. I don’t know anything about poker, but maybe James plays by different rules when he’s with his buddies than they do at the tables. Or maybe Jordan was actually wrong.  I found it to be a turn-off that Jordan didn’t even try to acknowledge the fact that either of these could be possibilities.

Jordan confronts James about talking about him to JoJo, and James doesn’t try to deny it (in stark contrast to Leah last season). James didn’t feel like he did anything wrong in bringing up the situation with Jordan.  He wasn’t warning JoJo about Jordan or telling her that he wasn’t the right guy for her.  He was just telling her how something made him feel.  If you are supposed to treat the relationship with the Bachelorette as a regular and real relationship, shouldn’t you share your feelings with them? Even if they are negative feelings, or feelings about something other than her?

3. If the group date was boring, the 2-on-1 date was even more boring. Derek and Chase are taught a 3 person tango. Derek goes on about how much passion he feels with JoJo, while Chase seems to be putting a guard up.

At night, Derek tells JoJo he loves her. During her conversation with Chase, she tells him she noticed the wall and Chase attempts to let it down.  With JoJo asking for words of affirmation, he tells her that he came here for her – to be with her and to leave with her.  That’s all she needs to hear, because the declaration of love wasn’t enough to keep poor Derek around. She gives the rose to Chase, and sends Derek to the limo to talk about himself in the third person.

Derek is Imperfect

At the rose ceremony, JoJo can’t make a decision and everyone gets a rose.

JoJo Red Dress_Ep61. JoJo’s scalloped red dress would be the perfect dress to take from the office to after work cocktails or a date. I’m not positive if this is the exact same fabric dress, but its the same designer and pretty darn close.  Plus, SALE!

JoJo Mesh Cutout Dress_Ep6
2. It was only when I started researching this post that I realized the cut out in the front of this dress wasn’t open, but instead was black mesh.  I love the subtle sexiness of the mesh, as well as the contrasting black straps.  I can’t find the Noam Hanoch stunner in stock anywhere, but you can get the contrasting straps and cut out in this NBD dress.

Robbie_Ep6_Cocktail
3. Robby can rock a neutral suit like nobody’s business.  I think the blue-grey in his tie and pocket square really gives that “southern gentleman/beach wedding” look I assume he was going for.

What did you think about this week’s episode? Is it starting to feel like a two horse race to anyone else? How are everyone’s fantasy teams looking? Let me know!

burnin’ up-jojo:week 2

Hi there! I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day Weekend, and pray that you didn’t have as much trouble getting back into the swing of things at work as I did.  I’m back to recap the second week of Jojo’s journey to find love, so let’s get to it.

Guys Singing_Ep2

My Takeaways

1. We start the second week of JoJo’s journey to find love with a group date, which features the men donning firefighting gear and competing for the chance to save JoJo. The only thing I could think for most of this date was how embarrassing it would be for Grant if he didn’t win. Imagine if a legitimate firefighter lost this competition to a radio DJ? Thankfully, that didn’t have to happen because Wells almost died (I’m not thankful for that, I’m really glad Wells made it through, he’s one of my faves), and Grant beat Luke up to the top of the “burning” building to save JoJo.

Grant wins extra time with JoJo at the cocktail party that night, and they have a really nice conversation about Grant’s career choice. JoJo is into it and Grant gets the first kiss of the night. Luke and JoJo also have a nice talk, which ends in a steamy make-out on the balcony.  JoJo is definitely into Luke. My favorite one-on-one chat of the date was between JoJo and Wells. Wells was the perfect amount of self-depricating about his poor physical showing at the firefighting challenge, and he had JoJo cracking up. Wells is really turning into a dark horse in the competition for me, I just hope that he doesn’t end up getting friend zoned. I don’t think we have to worry about that quite yet though, because JoJo loves that Wells never gave up during the competition and gives him the group date rose.

Self Depricating Wells

The second group date of the episode was one that I would love! The guys got to visit ESPN’s Los Angeles studios and run a Bachelorette combine of sorts trying to get on Marcellus Wiley and Max Kellerman’s big board. The guys had to perform a Bachelorette worthy touchdown dance, and give JoJo their best proposal after playing a non-alcoholic form of dizzy bat. Lastly, they had to give a press conference complete with questions about their feelings for the other guys (DRAMA ALERT!).

Chad was a big subject on this date, but enough went on with him this episode to warrant having a whole section devoted to his behavior. So stay tuned for Chad-talk.

The nighttime portion of the date took place at the Houdini mansion, which was a really cool venue. James Taylor steals her away first, and creates one of the sweetest moments in Bachelorette history. He mentions that he knows JoJo isn’t in his league, and that scares him, but he thinks she wants a guy that cares for her and that is him. I loved that James mentioned his faith, and how he really can’t believe how blessed he is to be in the situation that he is currently in.  You can tell that this really touched JoJo, and I think they connected on a deeper level in that moment.  To solidify that connection, James goes in for the kiss, and JoJo goes in for the second one.  To round out James’s awesome qualities, he said yoked, so that’s another one in the plus column.

Nothing too interesting happens on the rest of this group date that doesn’t involve Chad. James got the group date rose (no surprise there), while Chad thinks it should have been him.

2. JoJo’s one-on-one date this week was with Derek, someone who I think could be a quiet contender.  I mean, the guy looks like John Krasinski but with ice blue eyes. However, their date was not super eventful, as it consisted of them making a series of “difficult” choices, which would create components of their date.  It was pretty much a real-life create your own adventure book.  However, I’m not one to lose sleep over a decision about whether to take a private plane north or south.

Their choices ultimately lead them to San Francisco, where they have a picnic overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, and later, dinner. During their dinner, JoJo opens up about getting back on the dating scene after Ben, and encourages Derek to open up about his past relationships. Derek reveals that he had been ready to propose to a previous girlfriend, but then found out that there was another guy in the picture. He was being very vague during all of this, and for awhile I wondered if he was the one doing the cheating.  Alas, we wouldn’t get that drama, and JoJo gives him the date rose.

Chad West Side Story_Ep2

3. Ah Chad, finally we get to the center of the episode. Chad was the narrator of all the dates this week, even the ones he wasn’t on.  The man has a comment about every other man in the house and how he is better than all of them.  Chad is above doing any bonding with the other guys (Although, I don’t think I’d be into singing songs about JoJo with a bunch of dudes either. I guess they get bored without their phones). He would much rather tie a suitcase full of protein to his waist and do some pull-ups.

On the group date, Chad simultaneously was taking the Bachelor “combine” not seriously and WAY too seriously. When asked to propose to JoJo he went with a simple “Will you marry me?”. JoJo asked for him to explain a little why he wanted to marry her, and Chad said that if they were at that point she should already know. He wasn’t above trying to woo her though, going with the always successful “call a woman naggy, and she’ll love you forever”.

Chad’s main gripe with all the men was that they were all lying to JoJo by telling her things that they loved about her, or really by expressing any feelings toward her. It was his idea that they barely know this girl, so all their feelings were based on what they had seen on TV. Unfortunately, he’s kind or right in this situation. There is no way that any of these men love JoJo, but the “proposal” on the group date was meant to be fun.  JoJo certainly wasn’t taking any of those proposals seriously. At the night time portion of the date, Chad actually opened up, and talked to JoJo about losing his mom.  This endeared him to JoJo, and reminded America that there are multiple sides to every person.

At the rose ceremony, Chad was back in Chad form. He greeted JoJo when she arrived to the mansion, stealing her away before she even got to see any of the other guys.  I’m not sure if this was Chad’s idea, or a producer’s, but I actually think it was a good move.  Honestly, if any of the other guys had done this, no one inside would have been mad.  The show is about finding love, and the way to do that is to spend as much time as you can with someone. Once inside, Chad was confronted by the other men, which only made him steal JoJo away more. The main contention seems to be between Chad and Alex, who he had a few confrontations with during the rose ceremony.  One of them almost got physical, with Chad claiming that Alex should be afraid of him.  Maybe he forgot that Alex is a U.S. Marine? Also, Chad did all this while eating copious amounts of meat.

Best Outfits
Unfortunately, there are a lot less outfits of interest to look at during The Bachelorette than there are during The Bachelor.  Fortunately, Jojo has great style, and many of her men have got this style thing down as well.

JoJo Derek Date_Ep21. I loved this sparkly mini JoJo wore on her one-on-one date with Derek.

JoJo Group Date_Ep22. JoJo brings the edge factor with this leather legging and white sweater combo.  I didn’t love the fringe on the sweater, but the make-up and giant ring made up for it.

Luke Rose Ceremony_Ep23. As for the guys, my favorite look was Luke.  I really fell for that gingham pocket square.

What did you guys think of the episode? Who are your favorites? Next week we have two episodes, so look out for double Bachelorette posts next week!

the luckiest-jojo: week 1

AAAAAND we’re back rose lovers!  I really feel like I finally have something to live for again, now that Chris (B.) Harrison is back on our TVs. This time around he brings us JoJo Fletcher, she of Ben Higgins blindside fame, and the 26 men vying for her heart.

WhatJustHappened_JoJoEp1
My Takeaways

1. After the intro packages for JoJo (did you know Ben told her he loved her and then blindsided her?), and a few of the men, we get to the limo entrances. It’s pretty well known that the men who make the first and last entrance are normally ones to watch, and this season was no exception. Jordan Rodgers, brother of MVP and Superbowl winning quarterback Aaron Rodgers, was the first one to exit the limo, and all 6 foot 3 (with an extra couple inches for that coiffed mane of his) of him was looking great. He didn’t need a fancy entrance and JoJo was into him.

RobbyWine_JoJoEp1

Robby had a great entrance, presenting JoJo with a bottle of wine and taking it to the face similar to Mrs. Fletcher in Ben’s hometown visit last season. JoJo is in on the joke and says “My mom would like him”. Chase exited the limo with every mustache pun in the book ready to go, but if I’m being honest they would have made me giggle. Wells exited the limo with Grammy Award winning pop group All-4-One singing their hit “I Swear”. Although most of the men couldn’t appreciate a good entrance (more on that later), they all seemed to think Wells’s move was pretty smooth.

The last entrance was Luke, who didn’t come out of the limo but rather riding a unicorn, or a white horse with a horn strapped to its head. Luke is from Texas, like JoJo, believes in unicorns, like JoJo, and is ruggedly handsome, which I don’t think is like JoJo but I’d guess she definitely likes it.

2. Once all the men were inside, we really got to see their personalities come out. And by personalities I mean drunkenness because most of these guys were hammered! Between taking off all their clothes and jumping in the pool (Daniel), to interrupting JoJo filming her ITM’s with producers (Nick S. and Vinny), these guys were not holding their alcohol very well. Daniel continued his drunken escapades by poking Evan in the belly button, something that many of the guys told us was something you just do not do.

Chad_DressBright_JoJoEp1

Another person we saw a lot of inside was Chad, and that is because he thinks he’s the greatest person alive. Chad took it upon himself to pretty much bash every man that came out of the limo. When doing my fantasy draft for this season (I have Jordan, Chase, Nick B, Derek and Alex by the way), I was trying to figure out who the man was that all the other men would hate but JoJo would love. I was between Chad and Daniel, and if the “this season on…” is any indication, it is definitely Chad.

3. At the rose ceremony, we get a “shocking” entrance by a former Bachelor aka Jake Pavelka who just happens to be a Fletcher/Patton family friend. ABC teased this up like he was going to join the cast, and it was funny to see JoJo’s momentary look of panic when she thought this too.

VinnyConfused_JoJoEp1

Luke gets the first rose (Jordan had been given the first impression rose), and the eliminations were not too surprising. Honestly, I think there are only about 5 guys that JoJo may be into, probably another 7 that she thinks are nice guys, and the rest are just producer planted nut jobs. I can’t think of another reason that Daniel and Vinny would be given roses, after their drunken escapades.

My favorite part of the episode may have just been the scene that rolled over the credits. I couldn’t find a youtube video of it, but I really suggest taking it upon yourself to get on over to Hulu and watch.

Not really a tweet…but so funny.

Top 3 Guys
Tonight wasn’t a big night for fashion, so I’m going to kick off the season with my front runners for JoJo.

Jordan

1. No surprise here, but I think Jordan Rodgers is the top contender for JoJo’s heart. Who wouldn’t want to join the Rodgers family and get to strike up an insta-friendship with Aaron’s girlfriend Olivia Munn. The previews for the season show a little drama with Jordan, and whether he is there for the right reasons (shocker) but I don’t think that will phase JoJo that much. They really did have a lot of chemistry, and he was one of the only guys that she was comfortable with on Night 1.

Luke

2. I give Luke a pretty good shot at the final rose as well. Besides the first one/last one limo theory, I think that he and JoJo have a lot in common and were raised in similar ways. Luke is definitely cuter on the show than he is in his ABC bio photo, and I wish I would have known that when drafting my fantasy team.

Wells

3. My dark horse of the season is Wells. His entrance was memorable, him and JoJo had a good conversation and he just seems like an all around cool guy. He didn’t give me the overly “done up” vibe that someone like Jordan or Robby did. He is the kind of guy that you would want to go catch a show and a beer with, and I think that’s the guy that you want to spend your life with.

That’s all I’ve got for you guys after night 1.  What did you think of the premiere?  Does anyone not think Jordan is a front runner? Let me know!
