I’m not sure I will have much to say. I have heard he picks Rachael and I have heard he picks NOBODY. So I am not really spoiled for the finale! YAY! I do think he probably doesn’t pick anyone. And what bothers me about this bachelor is he SEEMS to be in love with all of them and then picks them off one by one. Even his mother doesn’t think he will propose. His brother is an interrogator which is to be expected but you can tell right away his family is NOT supportive of this endeavor. The fam asks really good questions though.
Again, I know I will get crucified for this but Rachael is a white girl raised in the south and I think everyone of all races is a little bit racist or a lot racist. She is a baby who need more time to be as cognizant on the issues of race. I feel like sometimes we judge people from on high as if we are all perfect and she is not. I worry about her. This is going to traumatize her no matter what happens. I think we all need to judge her (if we must, or maybe just don’t) her on what we understood when we were 20 and living in a state where racism was (and sadly still is) very prevalent.
I live in Georgia and the racial divide is real. She was at a small college where everyone is focused on partying and getting laid and trying to do all that while passing college. Maybe we should not cancel a young GIRL. Maybe we should teach. I fear we are cancelling someone who has barely had the right to see the world and understand. In other news and for the same reason she is not ready to be married at all. Muchless be the mother to a black child. That’s not a fault. It’s a fact.
His family makes it clear he doesn’t have to pick anyone. Now Matt feels like he is not ready. He is all inside his head. Chris Harrison comes in and is shocked that Matt is now having a change of heart. Matt is not going to propose. Or maybe he is just scared? You know the producers signed to Matt, Michelle and Rachael are IN FULL EFFECT. If you haven’t seen the show called UnReal squirellfriends, you better look it up. It was one of the best shows ever to be on Lifetime and it was written by former producers of The Bachelor.
I wish he would marry Michelle. I love her. Also, I rappelled for a man much less worthy than this. The scary part is before your line touches at the top. Once you know you are truly online, it is fine. Michelle takes to it quickly. He should marry her. But he won’t. OMG! I love Michelle. Fuck he is going to dump her before the rose ceremony. Move his hand off his leg, girl! Don’t hug him, send him walking! I hate this show.
Chris Harrison (who I ALREADY MISS. HE IS THE SHOW. Just cancel it without him). Fine, cancel him if you must. But also cancel the show. Looks like he is gearing up to pick no one. But he has one last date with Rachael. Also, he did not defend her over the racism stuff. I think he could have helped her out if he liked her so much. He could have defended a young woman and still condemned her past actions. Rachael didn’t even get her final date. Maybe because I watched so much UnReal, but all the women on these shows seems terribly misogynistic and mean. Jesus no wonder there were rumors both ways. That seems to be the dramatic ending. Rachael or no one? LOL At Neil Lane counseling him. He picks a pear shape ring. I think for that reason alone she should be happy he likely won’t propose. If anyone out there wants to propose to me, choose the emerald cut. I will say no. But I will keep the ring. 🙂
Banjo Is Loving All The Pets
Matt is about to dump Rachael. WTF there is a rose. I frankly would have chosen at least a dozen people over her for this guy. It seems like she knows she is getting dumped. Holy shit is he going to propose? Production is such an asshole. Why torment the girl? WOW! He wants to be with her, and he loves her an he wants to go forward with her and marry her in the future. Once again, this is why the spoilers were so weird. And they live happily ever after until she gets cancelled? He gives her the final rose.
And now it is time to pound away on Rachel, America. Emmanuel Acho is now the host. And as I Googled some names. There is a LOT of stuff out there about Rachael where she is really overtly racist. So perhaps she should be cancelled? A lot of people who went to school with here have lots of things to say about how horribly racist she was/is? So should she be cancelled? or just taught to be a better person?
How The Hell Does He Think This Beard Is Attractive?
I just want to get through all of this. And I am not in charge of what should happen to Rachael. But I do know I really wanted her to be with Matt, and I HATE the COVID beard. OOOH! Michelle basically calls out production and Matt. Men suck at these conversations but Matt really sucks at it. She is not longer in love with him. I can’t take him seriously with this beard. When I was an elementary school student living in Libya a friend of mine has this toy. It’s basically cardboard with metal shavings. I tried to tell my parents what I wanted and they had no idea what I was talking about. And bought one inadvertently and it was my favorite thing. I’m sure they bought me a Barbie dream house or something months before and paid to have it shipped. But his was my favorite present and I remember my mama not knowing that was even what I asked Santa for. Santa always knows.
Moving on it seems like Matt defended Rachael at first, much like I did, and then it all turned out to be way worse and he was done. He seems really harmed by it. Like really harmed by it. They are no longer together obviously. It is great that there is a black host for this. This host is asking all the right questions. And by the right questions, I mean the questions that white people need to know the answers to. In you love her why can’t you forgive her for her past racism? Why judger her off things that happened previously? Can you let past transgressions dictate the nature of your relationship? This guy is excellent. I prejudged him as a sports guy and didn’t think he was up to the task. He exceeds expectations. Plus, he’s hot. 🙂
Emmanuel Acho Is A Boss!
Now he gets to grill Rachael. Rachael is doing a good job of not blaming her racism on being from the south and all the reasons I gave to sort of excuse her before. But we are all products of our environment. You kind of have to know better to be better. And she was in a podunk redneck college and dumb as shit because she was not even in her twenties yet. As much as I wish we could cancel ignorance. That is not going to happen. We have to educate ignorance. And it seems like she is getting a very rude education. And that frankly is what she needs.
Emmanuel Acho is beyond impressive at this. I can’t even explain what he is doing here but he needs to give seminars. Or group therapy sessions. Rachael seems really remorseful. She says she never thought the photos, etc were going to be an issue. Rachael says she was very confused and blindsided by the breakup. She didn’t get it. She is still very much in love with him. So let’s bring him out! They hug. She apologizes to Matt. Loooooooooong silence. Matt is in a HORRIBLE situation here especially if he still loves her. The black community will never forgive him if he takes her back. But you can see part of him does. This is HEAVY.
Matt just starts crying. I still wish he would have just picked Michelle. But it is obvious this man is in love with her. Or at least thinks he is. They hold hands. Briefly. Also, off topic, Rachael the blue nail polish was a mistake. Matt tries to explain what it is to be a black man in America. He basically says that because she doesn’t understand that is why they can’t be together. I think Rachael may be suicidal. Matt says he doesn’t want to be Rachael to be cancelled, or called out, he wants people to call her in. This is heartbreaking. I think they love each other. And I await all the ridicule this post will get. Despite the host asking for a final embrace, there was none.
The new Bachelorette is between Michelle and Katy. I had someone else in mind but I forget her name. There are TWO BACHELORETTES. But it is two different seasons. Katy is up first. I don’t remember her. I won’t remember Michelle when her season starts either. I love this host and want him to host instead of whoever they announced, some female former Bachelorettes doing it together?
