Bachelor Nick Bring on the Tears

Posted: February 22, 2017 in Bachelor

Things get all shook up with tension and tears as the woman question his motives of keeping Corrine who is not the right for him at all. They do their dating in St Thomas. Also, Danielle L has replaced one of my front runners Vanessa after it was exposed that she is in fact an actress and not who she claims to be. The other thing I noticed was once Taylor was gone the girls seemed to like Corinne so maybe it was partly produced drama be ABC.

My girls left: Danielle M, Rachel, Kristina, Danielle L, Whitney, Raven

Solo Date Kristina- They take a private plane ride and once on island she tells about her family being adopted and being from Russia with a sister who is still there. She shared of her childhood in Russia living in poverty and getting in orphanage. Of course she had her swimsuit on ready to go swimming. She got the rose on the date . The date ended with a band playing for them as they danced.

Group Date Rachel, Raven, Vanessa, Corrine, Danielle M, Jasmine The girls headed to a beach where he got the bad idea to do group volleyball and soon things unraveled with all the girls unhappy with him, they all wanted alone time with him not group time. Jasmine let her frustrations be known and was sent home. Raven got the group date rose.

2 on 1 Whitney vs Danielle L They headed on a plane to an island together and after a talk with both girls he first sent Whitney home and then after Danielle made the mistake of saying the love word too soon she was also sent home. this sent the girls in worry and Nick to question his wanting to be there and doubt the whole process.

No girls were sent home this week and the girls headed to the Bahamas.


I missed one episode and Astrid and Sarah were sent home keeping around 7 of my picks still among the 13 women given roses to stay. The girls travel to New Orleans and encounter the treaded 2 on 1 date and its between enemies who don’t go down without a fight.

My Picks: Danielle M, Vanessa, Raven, Rachel, Elizabeth, Sarah, Olivia, Lacey, Kristina, Hailey, Liz, and Whitney.


Solo Date Rachel It’s about time she got a solo date since she got the first impression rose, used to be if you got that rose you got the first date he went on. The date started in the French market where they shopped and had fun together. These two blend well and he claims to have the best chemistry with her. They witness a second line and join in the fun dancing before they head off to hear a live band and do more dancing together. The end f the date was seeing the mardi gras floats and having a dinner they never touch. He was open and vulnerable with her as she was and got the rose.

Group Date- Kristina, Alexis, Raven, Jaimi, Vanessa, Danielle M. Danielle L, Jasmine and Whitney: The girls and Nick go to a haunted mansion the Houmas House built in 1828 by rich people and haunted by May a girl who was raised there and lost her favorite dolly, when looking at the plantation history no where in it does it mention this haunted part . So I think it was all put on by ABC staged or if not very exaggerated as the account of any ghosts at the place doesn’t give as much detailed as that paid caretaker told. He had moments with several of the girls and Danielle M got the group date rose.

2 on 1 Corrine vs Taylor- The date goes down the the bayou to see voodoo priestesses and each girl gets alone time with Nick, Corinne being mean spirited uses her time to trash talk Taylor who has no clue what shes in for, then as much as she tried to clarify her side is unsuccessful and gets sent home. Corinne is a manipulator and Taylor is the one who put her in her place but spoiled Corinne hated that so she made up things and sent her rival packing. Only Taylor wasn’t finished with that she came to let her side be told she tracked down the couple, the girls who tattle on the mean girls always get sent home. Corrine still managed to fool him. This makes him a fool for being with her, too bad the bachelor can’t heard her behind the scene interviews then he would send her packing.

Rose Ceremony ( 6 of 9  ) Danielle M, Rachel, Corrine, Kristina, Raven, Vanessa, Danielle L, Jasmine, Whitney



The ladies are greeting by the host who informs them the dates this week are going to be spectacular. Let’s hope they all appreciate the dates and that Nick can finally see through Corinne and send her packing.

My Picks: Danielle M, Vanessa, Raven, Rachel, Elizabeth, Sarah, Olivia, Lacey, Kristina, Hailey, Liz, and Whitney.





Group Date Danielle L, Christen, Kristina, Whitney, Taylor, Jasmine, Corrine Everybody one of the girls guessed it was Backstreet Boys and the band of the 90s strolls in. The room goes in hysterics much as I would have liked seeing New Kids. The women get a song from the band. It’s revealed that surprise Corinne is a terrible dancer and Jasmine was a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader. Burbank Studios is where they find Nick with the band ready to go over dance moves. The band has a Vegas Residency at Planet Hollywood this spring. The girls are going to be background dancers and one lucky lady gets to be serenaded by band with Nick. Nick notices Jasmine and Danielle moves during rehearsal. (the date would have been better without Corinne’s whining and being a cry baby ). The costumes are nice nothing too skimpy, but the dance moves are the girls wiggling around on stage .

The serenade went to Danielle L and the she gets to slow dance to ” I want it that Way” and she steals a kiss. Corinne gets his time first as always. She apologized to him but declined to talk to the other girls about the issue. He’s still snowed over by her. As soon as her time was over she went to go take a nap on the date how rude. After hearing about her nanny she does not belong on this show and you are downgrading yourself in the women’s eyes. Danielle L got the date rose.

Solo Date Vanessa The pair of them get to be astronauts for the day, they get to be weightless and everything is going amazing having a wonderful time . She then gets sick and throws up in front of him, he’s a sweet guy and he didn’t leave her side holding her close. That night they go to a great view of the city, the tallest building in LA. A candlelight dinner is set up for them. They share a bond over their close familys, she lost her grandfather before coming on the show and she got the support of her family to be there. She got him to share his past experiences on the show. She got the rose.

Group Date Rachel, Alexis, Astrid, Jaimi, Sarah, Brittany, Dominique The girls meet Nick at the track, they get help from some Olympians Alison Felix, Michelle Carter and Carl Lewis. They were in a Nickcathlon which included a lot of track events. The girls first had the Limo Long Jump, the high jump into Nick’s arms, javelin throw to his heart. the semi finalists were Rachel, Alexis and Astrid. The winner gets time with Nick in surprise a hot Tub!  The girls were total klutzes, Rachel knocks it over and Astrid gets it. During the aftertime Dominique had a meltdown on her first date, Rachel gave her a pep talk which was nice. He has time with the other women before her and she walks in on him kissing Rachel. She gives him a lecture and he looks depressed and he ends things with her sending her home. Rachel gets the group date rose.

The women have a pool party with Nick before the rose ceremony, ( of course they had to get them all in bikinis so typical ). The girls get crazy and make out with him rubbing sunscreen on him.  Corinne’s stunt of a bouncy house making out with him backfires on him. Who in their right mind thinks a bouncy house is romantic and sexy?  After causing problems she goes back to bed leaving him to deal with the women. The girls all get upset at him and his actions with Corinne. Raven tells him he’s making a mistake and about her nanny, the girls question him about her and Vanessa who already has a rose is ticked off after their great connection the other night. He could lose an amazing woman just for having fun with Corinne.” Are you looking for a wife or someone to fool around with” ?  I am so proud of Vanessa for standing up to his behavior and calling him out on it. 

He had a good start with her but then he asked her to be patient with Corinne which upsets her, she told him that she was ready to give him back his rose if he keeps Corinne. The girls Taylor and Sarah confronted Corinne in bed and telling her to pull it together. She then talks back to the girls. The hosts talk to him about her and he claims not to take it lightly and obviously he didn’t after all the girls were against her .

Roses (7 of  15): Danielle L, Vanessa, Rachel, Raven, Taylor, Whitney, Kristina, Jasmine, Alexis, Astrid, Danielle M, Jaimi, Josephine, Sarah, Corinne.

Nick Vial is the new bachelor, while it may come as a shock to most of us there are some of America that wants him as the bachelor. While I admit I was against him to start as I wanted Luke to be the one. After watching the premiere I am softening my view toward him. hopefully this will be the season he finds love. This season he got 30 women to choose from guess they thought he needed more options.

Nick has been on the bachelor series 3 times: Andi’s Season, Kaitlyn’s Season and on the third season of Bachelor in Paradise. He lives in Chicago and has a big family with ten siblings. He got good luck wishes from many of his BIP castmates : Sarah, Vinny, Jared, Josh, Ashley I and the twins.

I was a bit disappointed with the ex bachelors coming on to give him advice, I feel like they could have each given him some words of wisdom. Instead we only got advice from Ben. The show did not use their bachelors to their full advantage.  They did a great job giving updates on the past bachelor couples who have seen success on the show: Trista & Ryan have been together happily married 13 years, Molly & Jason and JP & Ashley each have two kids. Shawn & Kaitlyn and JoJo & Jordan are both living together. Sean & Catherine and Desiree & Chris both have babies. Jade & Tanner have been married a year.





Now that the intro is out of the way lets get to the first night of Nick’s journey to love. This year I rounded out my picks with 12 girls and included a variety of women.

My Picks: Danielle M, Vanessa, Raven, Rachel, Elizabeth, Sarah, Olivia, Lacey, Kristina, Hailey, Liz, and Whitney.

There were several openers by the woman some were wonderful while others bombed. The best openers were Lacey who got off on a camel ( yes it was a bit corny but it was orginal). Olivia with her eskimo kiss, Corinne who gave him a bag of tokens, and Raven who got him to do a cheer.

Half the women wore red dresses which seemed to be the popular color of the night and one poor woman showed up in dolphin suit, Nick wouldn’t let her out of it all night. I think he thought of it as cute yet funny.The best dressed of the girls were : Elizabeth, Lauren, Morgan, Liz, Olivia and Raven.

Corrine turned out to be more aggressive version of Lacy from the previous season, stealing a kiss and demanding more time with the bachelor and from the previews she might have gone to far by sneaking in his room late at night and ignoring his protests. Does this sound familiar. didn’t Nick himself pull this stunt with Kaitlyn?

I was surprised by the girl who got the first impression rose Rachel the attorney from the south, but in a way she was the one he connected to most in conversation both have big families.  He got my respect when he didn’t let one Jasmine G pull him away from a conversation although she then procceded to throw a hissy fit to the other women.

They really didn’t show to many of the connections he made but those that they did only a few stood out to me, I’m hoping this season doesn’t just focus on the drama but on the romance too.

Rose Ceremony:  ( 11 of 22) Rachel, Vanessa, Danielle L, Liz, Hailey, Whitney, Dominqiue, Jami, Brittany, Astrid, Christen, Corrine, Elizabeth, Jasmine G, Raven, Kristina, Danielle M, Sarah, Josephine, Lacey, Taylor and Alexis.






I am thrilled to welcome Mandy Robinson from According2Mandy for  a bachelor guest post, here is her view of  the final four women that Juan has chosen to see their hometowns. Please share your thoughts in the comments section I will be guest posting on her blog soon and will post the link in one of my posts.

The Bachelor 2014 is coming to an end and only four women are left trying to win over Juan Pablo Galavis. He just might find love, but it not known who it will be with yet. Here are my thoughts on the remaining women. I can’t wait to see who finally wins! I hope that he found true love on “The Bachelor” 2014 and a wedding is coming soon.

Renee Oteri – Renee is really into Juan Pablo. I think she is falling hard for him, but she of course is a bit concerned because she has a son at home. These two would be great together considering they are both single parents, but it just might be a bit too much for JP honestly.

Nikki Ferrell – Nikki is a front-runner in my eyes. Juan Pablo actually introduced her to his daughter Camila which is a really big deal for him. Camila is the most important person in his life. The fact that he introduced her to him means that it would be shocking if she doesn’t win his heart.

Clare Crawley – Honestly I don’t like Clare Crawley very much. The show could be editing her to make her look bad, but she has been just a bit too rude lately. She seems to feel like she expects all of his time and attention. The thing is JP is very obviously smitten with her.

Andi Dorfman – I love that Andi is really squared away. She is a smart girl with a law degree. There is a lot more to her than just a pretty face. Juan Pablo is attracted to her, but he is also impressed with her mind. They are not showing enough of this couple together though.
