The Bachelorette Week 1 Recap: “Sweet, but sour. Sassy, but classy.”

It’s that time of year again. The time where I spend my weeknights holed up in the air conditioning hiding from the brutal summer heat & absorbing myself in reality television and all the emotions that come with it.

So here we are, welcome to my first week of the Bachelorette recap: Sweet, but sour edition.

When I initially heard Rachel was the bachelorette, I was surprised. She seemed really skeptical of the whole Bachelor universe on Nick Viall’s season, but since starting her own season, she’s seemed all in during press interviews and on social, and tonight’s premiere episode was no different.

So to kick this off, let’s talk about the good, the bad, and the cringe-worthy.

The GOOD

Kenny. He’s adorable, jovial, and I already love him. He’s Kenny King, the “Pretty Boy Pit Bull” of the wrestling world. His intro video showed total compassion for his 10 year old daughter McKenzie and he spoke about how strong he thinks Rachel is. He seems like a total softie and I hope he sticks around until the end.

Diggy. Not to be confused with Iggy. He’s totally charming & well dressed. He was my immediate favorite when I saw him on the Facebook Live reveal while making my Bachelorette Fantasy League. (Yes. That’s totally a thing. You can join my draft HERE.) I hope he gets more screen time in next week’s episode.

Diggy, not Iggy.

The BAD

Jamey. He comes off 100% arrogant & I’m honestly so baffled as to why he got a rose this week. Just check out these answers in his cast bio. “Where do you see yourself in 5 years? I am trying to not make plans in life. What does your ideal mate look like? A model. Describe your best friend of the opposite sex and why she/she deserves that title: I do not have female friends.”

He sounds like a real prize. He got a rose and I’m hoping he goes home in week 2.

Mohit. Honestly I liked him until he got unabashedly, shit faced drunk in the first 30 minutes. I never even saw him interact with Rachel after the initial meeting. He was too busy getting acquainted with the champagne. Mohit did not get a rose, but he did get this quote that will last a lifetime.

“Nooo, keep your mouth away!” -Mohit waving his arms & screaming while standing in the bushes to watch Rachel kiss Bryan.

Mohit. I don’t have anything clever to say about him.

The CRINGE-WORTHY

Jonathan. He tickled Rachel immediately upon introduction. He also listed his occupation as tickle monster. No further explanation needed. Please send him home in Week 2, Rachel.

Jonathan “Tickle Monster” Creeper

Blake E. He kept talking about his penis in his intro video. He was also working out in his intro video, so you can tell he’s really into himself. Tells us “my last relationship was mostly sex based, sex driven.” Then says, “Women have told me about the amazingness of my penis.” Are you serious? EW.

Blake E. AKA Mr. Self Absorbed

And finally, Lucas. His occupation is “Whaboom”. From what I can tell, that mostly consists of screaming at the top of his lungs and acting insane. All the guys got super catty & were like, “If *HE* gets a rose, I’m out of here.” Unfortunately, the producers had Rachel give him a rose and Whaboom lives to see another day.

So, until next week, live like Rachel and stay sweet but sour, sassy but classy!
