I can’t lie, I’m so excited for Jade and Tanner’s wedding! I’ve been stalking them on Instagram and I’m going to make my poor husband sit through it, can’t even hold off until I have the house to myself.
It’s the most dramatic conclusion of the most shocking season of The Bachelorette. Special contributor Andrée H., editor-at-large Geri and I held a virtual Bachelorette party as we found out how Kaitlyn Bristowe ends her amazing journey with Shawn Booth and Nick Viall and if Chris Harrison will ever stop using hyperbole. Let’s go!
Special contributor Andrée H. is a proud member of “Bachelor Nation,” which means she holds The Bachelorette to a high standard and takes things seriously, more seriously than Kaitlyn, if you ask me. This season’s “Men Tell All” episode fell short of Andrée’s expectations. To be honest, I was disappointed that no fistfights erupted. There was one genuinely significant moment, TVRD gives Kaitlyn side-eye, but some of her critics have taken their dislike to alarming proportions as you’ll see. In any case, here is what Andrée has to say.
So, here’s what happened, I got lured back into watching The Bachelorette and I needed someone to discuss it with. Despite her better judgement, Geri gave in because we go way back. The caveat is that she gets to send me hostile e-mails and messages after the episode. That’s just piling on to the shame I feel, but there it is. In any case, here are stream-of-consciousness thoughts from editor-at-large, Geri.
Some viewers, and by that I mean editor-at-large Geri M. and myself, mock The Bachelorette, but TVRD’s special contributor Andrée H. has her own take on it. Andrée genuinely likes The Bachelorette and raises a perfectly arched eyebrow when it does meet high expectations. Seriously, though, the woman has some phenomenal eyebrows. Think Liz Taylor back in the day. In any case, Andrée recaps for the right reasons.
Editor-at-large Geri M. tried to give up The Bachelorette, she was almost out, but I pulled her back in because I needed someone who would hate-watch with me. And hate-watch she does. Geri also sends me a flurry of stream-of-consciousness commentary. I promise to never make her hate watch again. (I’m lying.)
Special contributor Andrée H. watches The Bachelorette for the right reasons. Here’s her take on the latest in the Shawn, Kaitlyn, Nick, triangle.
Editor-at-large Geri M. is watching this season of The Bachelorette, after swearing she was done with it. I may or may not have lured her back into the fold. It’s sort of like offering someone heroin. As retaliation, I receive irate emails and messages. Geri gives this show some severe side-eye. Here is her stream-of-consciousness recaplet of Episode 9.
