Demi is so seriously annoying. I would even take Victoria over her and that is saying something.
Naturally she asks Brendan on a date. I seriously don't understand why all these women think he is so hot and I just want to throw something at the tv every time she opens her fake mouth. He kind of tells her he wants to explore other relationships, but is stumbling all over his words...as if he is scared of her evil ways.
Victoria caught in her lie and chooses to leave. Ding, dong the witch is dead. She admits she doesn't need to search for something she already has at home...and everyone celebrates. James is then swarmed by the desperados.
You could be the juiciest, most ripe peach, but there is still going to be someone who doesn't like peaches.
I don't understand the Brendan love either, he's fine enough, but in person he must really have some magnetism! Demi was embarrassing when she overreacted to his response. (Or, as someone online said, Over-acted, not overreacted.)
Tammy annoys me. Even before spreading the gossip, she bugged me, but she really seemed to enjoy being the gossiper. When she left Aaron to go do something, she stuck her chin up in a gesture of "kiss me" and it looked snotty. When she accepted his rose, "Duhhh!" it sounded snotty.
Victoria P is really out there, wow. To first be so defensive with James, then how she acted with Tammy and Kelsey, was mind-boggling. I couldn't keep up. Then again, I saw the size of those shots they were doing, so maybe that had a hand in how some of them were behaving.
During the rose ceremony, did anyone else notice James in the background when Kelsey was getting cooled off? He wasn't up at the "podium," he was in the "stands" like everyone else. So, she didn't pull that at the time they showed it -- they inserted it into James' rose moment and then had their pet, Demi, do an interview about it making it seem like it happened at that moment, to be dramatic. Can't b.s. a b.s.er, she says. Victoria L looked like she was going to throw up, she looked so horrible.
I really like Jessenia and Ivan, they seem so sweet. Joe and Serena are kinda cute too, Maurissa and Connor are okay. Aaron and Tammy - nope. Tre and Tahz: I'm not buying their connection yet. Carl and nobody, really - nobody will stick with him. Kenny (who was not naked) and Mari look good together, but I mostly had to laugh that Noah said he was 55! I'm also not as big a fan of Noah and Abigail; he's more sincere about it than she seems to be. She said last time how she friend-zones guys really quickly, and I think Noah's got an uphill climb there. I feel kind bad for him. James and Demi aren't going to make it, and Natasha and Brendan aren't going to either (at least when Pieper shows up).
Previews show Thomas and Riley coming in, and of course lots of drama.
I liked David Spade in this role, because he was funny and not too over the top. Wells is a natural host, and I really love him of course, so he could do all the rest of the episodes and I'd be fine, but it looks like that boy-band guy comes in next time (can't remember his name).
Oh. You're taking about Lance Bass, Navybelle. I thought you meant Kenny, and I was thinking, "The boy-band guy is already there."
And, yeah, Victoria P! I'm not sure if she just drinks too much in this environment or if she has serious emotional problems and really shouldn't be on shows like this, but she has not done herself any favors with the way she's behaved either time.
Thanks Midol, for the recap/etc. I like Connor. He seems so normal compared to the others. Seems like a sweet guy. I like his intro where he's lying on the beach in the cat outfit batting at the feather-on-a-stick toy. Demi is beyond irritating. She's Production's latest darling. Unfortunately she's not the viewers' darling. She apparently agreed to do whatever Production wants in return for being on the show. I believe I know exactly what got her into this position. She publicly trashed & embarassed & possibly humiliated RS, & now TPTB are in her debt, at least until she opens her mouth & says the wrong thing.
I also just don't get the Brendan love. The women all rave about how good looking he is, but I don't see it. I don't find him the least bit attractive, in fact, I find him homely. Maybe he has a great personality, but I've yet to see it on my TV screen.
James seems like a really good guy. Too bad he got targeted by Victoria. Glad he called her out. I'll bet Production "encouraged" him to give his rose to Demi. They didn't want their pet to go home yet. As for Victoria - Bye Bye.
Kelsey seems like a bit of an airhead, or at least she's being edited that way.
Joe is a sweetheart and Serena seems nice enough, but she's so darned young for him. For some reason her youth seemed to stick out this week.
Glad to see Kenny brought clothes, and decided to wear them.
I'll miss David Spade. He fits into this show well. Looks like Lance Bass is next week. Let's hope he does as well.
Gut feeling: I have a feeling this season is Wells' audition for replacing Chris Harrison. I like him. Always did. I say give him Chris Harrison's host job & bring back Jorge as bartender on BIP.
There's always another option. You just have to find it.
I just got sucked into a Bachelor story sinkhole, and found this: Victoria Paul
In it, she explains she really didn't have a boyfriend, and her limo exit referred to home and being with people she loved, etc. She had her implants removed recently, so was in the hospital. Check out her choice of friends too:
"She later watched her “Bachelor in Paradise” boyfriend drama play out from her hospital room in Nashville with her pals fellow Bachelor Nation alum Victoria Fuller and Christen Whitney by her side."
