Bachelorette Season 11, Episode 3 Weekly recap

I'm so excited to be doing my first ever series of Bachelorette Recaps! This show is my guilty pleasure and I love writing and talking about it, but I also really love reading spoilers. I just wanted to provide a quick disclaimer that I have read spoilers and will be writing this from the spoiled perspective. If you want to read spoilers so you can relate more to this post you can click here. 

We have endured the first 2 episodes. You can read my first episode recap here. I didn't recap the second episode, since it was only an hour, but oh my gosh the season teaser seems crazy! Though I know what happens in rose ceremonies and the ending, the funny and dramatic things that occur within the episodes make it worth watching. I'm excited, because this season seems to be full of drama. I think choosing Kaitlin as Bachelorette was a good idea, though she could end up as the girl version of Juan Pablo. 

Kaitlin begins the show talking to Chris Harrison. She reiterates how lucky she feels, yet again. I'm sure she's thinking about how lucky it is that she gets to go kiss a bunch of guys, definitely not about finding love.
Then the go to the guys; they show them all excited that Kaitlin's the Bachelorette. I'm most amazed by the amount of food they had for Brunch. It made me wish I was there. All that fruit looked fresh and delicious.

Britt & Brady:
Britt is shown calling her mom on the phone. She sad that she didn't get to say goodbye to any of the guys. And then just as she finishes talking, Brady knocks on her door. This whole section seemed scripted. Brady is so sweet; he really wants to be with Britt. We see them talking, but the show drags out the rest to the end of the show. In the last minute of the show they show Britt and Brady sharing an ice cream cone and prancing around, before they finally show Brady asking Britt to be his "girl".  I honestly think they actually have a shot at it, since they are dating in the real world.

Group Date 1: Boxing
The guys enter the creepy boxing studio by calling out, "oh Kaitlin where are you". This is one of the cheesiest things this show has ever done. The guys find Kaitlin in her cliche boxing outfit with a famous women boxer. They really pushed the guest stars this episode, but it does make for interesting T.V.  All I can think about is on this date their are the tiny scrawny guys and the giant, I'm obsessed with the gym guys. It's pretty easy to pick out the winners. Kupah is in his own world; he doesn't even talk to Kaitlin throughout the whole date. Then they find out they have to fight each other, duhh, they've got to make this interesting. The producers are geniuses, because making the guys fight each other is the perfect way to create drama in the house. I personally cringed watching all of this fighting. The championship comes down to Jared vs. Ben Z(or as Kaitlin says it Benzee). Ben Z. wins, but he hurts Jared. Jared must go to the hospital. They go on to the end of the date, where all the guys talk to her. She seems really taken back by all the guys that are dads, as if she is not ready for that responsibility. We all know that she is not ready for that responsibility either. Kaitlin has a really strong connection with Ben Z. She later gets a note from Jared, who wants her to come down stairs. He tells her that he has to go back, but that he wanted to see her first. It's very sweet. She literally kisses almost everyone on this date. The rose goes to Ben Z. It was so obvious by how strong their connection was.

1 on 1: Underwater Photo Shoot
Clint gets this date, like what who even is Clint. Then they make you remember that he's the one who gave her a picture of Chris Harrison on a Triceratops, how does that warrant you a 1 on 1. He finds out the date is an underwater photo shoot; he acts so taken back by it that you could think he has a fear of water. This in my opinion is a boring date. Kaitlin is sure that is going to be an excellent test of chemistry- who the heck fed her that line. I kind of miss Kaitlin's fun spirit on this date. They put makeup and did Kaitlin's hair just for her to jump in a pool, OK that makes sense(not at all). Clint has too much hair for this date, it looks weird in the water. Clint gets the rose, but they seem like an awkward match in my opinion. The pictures did turn out really cool though. Oh yeah and Kaitlin kisses him, shocker.


The healer is at the mansion rambling off all of his many opinions on love, that consist of way too many metaphors. None of the other guys seem to care. It is funny though as he accidental refers to Kaitlin as Britt. Someone just get this psycho off this show.

Group Date 2: Comedy
My T.V. went off for part of this date, because of the storm, but I'm going to recap what I did see. When I first heard about this date I thought it was going to be hilarious because of how horrible they did, and not because their jokes are actually funny. They had some great guest stars, though to help them. Most importantly, we see how much a jerk J.J.  really is in this episode and how oblivious Kaitlin is to it.  He's so cocky and, I can't even understand why.
Amy hilariously calls J.J. out for being a jerk in one of her ITM's. Cupcake Chris was so cute. Tony epically fails. They didn't really show much of the guys actually telling jokes. They show more ITM's of J.J. talking bad about other people. He really just needs to learn to shut his mouth. They have a little party after where the kiss count goes up to about 3,000. The rose goes to J.J., and suddenly you want to puke all over. I thought that date would be really good, but I think it's execution was a but of a bust.

Cocktail party
Kaitlin arrives and J.J. as the jerk he is runs of with her even though he already has a rose. All the guys are angry at him, and he states that he doesn't care, "that he didn't come here to make friends". After that you see Ian, and how can you not fall for him. He's so sweet, he has a sob story, and he went to Princeton. We finally see Shawn B, who wasn't on any of the dates. Then we get Kupah, who begins getting mad that he's on this show only to meet a black person quota. Wow, finally someone who understands how this show works. He decides to ramble to Kaitlin about all of his problems and you can literally see him digging his own grave. He whines and complains, before finally Kaitlin sends him home. The show ends with an angry Kupah shooting and ITM. No rose ceremony until next week. 

Eliminated: Kupah
Thanks for Reading,
Ashley
