Welcome to my uber-speedy, micro Bachelorette recap! My favorite part of this week’s episode of The Bachelorette was “The Type 1 Diabetes Overshare”. I love it when there’s a serious sit-down that has to happen. And then there’s a lot of build-up about the situation. And then the situation is really not that big of a situation, at least in terms of relationship deal breakers.
“Um…This is really difficult for me to say….but….I have Type 1 diabetes.”
Good God! It’s not like he had to share with her that he has an adult diaper fetish! It’s like when Kacie B on Ben Flajnik’s season felt the need to overshare that she forced herself to puke at a Super Bowl party once (“I battled with bulimia.”) The things people feel compelled to share as if they’re SUPER important for the foundation of a relationship and/or “getting to know you” is freaking amazing.
In addition to the “Type 1 Diabetes” overshare, we also had three other amazing overshares:
“My mom was a drug addict.” (Group Date cocktail party)
“My Dad abandoned me when I was 5.” (First 1-on-1 date)
“I was in a life-threatening car accident.” (Second 1-on-1 date)
….and all of the above are at least a bit more compelling than having Type 1 diabetes for god sake!
Ok, I’m all riled up.
And, yes, Ben Scott is being a total jerk-face, which sucks because he was one of our out-of-limo faves, what with the mini-Ben appearance of his son Brody! We all know the guy that can’t get along with the other guys isn’t going to be a good pick. Which brings me to…..
I love The Bachelorette because of all the bromances. Everyone is so excited about all of the other “good guys” in the house. “Des, you have a lot of ‘good guys’ here.” “Brooks and Bryden have roses, but they’re ‘good guys.’ They’d never steal Des. Ben just isn’t a ‘good guy.’” Amazing!
And, finally, that Soulja Boy video date was one of my favorite in the show’s history. If you haven’t seen the full-length video, we have it posted here. It was such a fun, funny concept that was fairly Burning Love-esque. It’s always nice when a show can make fun of itself. Bravo!
Ok, here’s a roundup of other Bachelor Nation bloggers posting recaps and such this season. If you have a favorite blog you’d like me to start including here, just let me know!
