While some people might have a quiet evening in on Monday nights, I’d rather flip on the TV and anxiously await what season thirteen’s The Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay has up her sleeve.
ABC claims every. single. season. of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette is the most scandalous/crazy/epic we’ve ever seen, but respectively, I’ve always had to disagree — until now. From DeMario Jackson‘s lies about having a girlfriend at home to one of the men actually being referred to as “whaboom” guy, I have to argue that this is one of the only seasons yet where you honestly can’t predict what the eff is going to happen next.
1. Rachel Lindsay Breaking Bachelor Nation’s Diversity Barrier.
It’s hard to imagine that in the year 2017, we finally have the first African-American Bachelorette. We had a Black president for eight years but we couldn’t get a non-White Bachelor or Bachelorette until season 13? Bizarre. What’s even better is that Rache isn’t afraid to talk about the kind of pressure that having that title puts her under. Considering that other guys in the house are starting to realize and talk about how there is a freakin’ contestant in the house who has racist attitudes (Lee) — this season is talking about race in a way that no other season has done before.
2. WHABOOM guy… who/what are you and what planet did you emerge from?!
Okay, okay I know most of you might have forgotten about this crazy fellow since Rachel gave him the boot a couple episodes ago. Honestly though, what was this guy’s deal? His job title was “whaboom.” I don’t even know what to make of that sound effect as a job title? Quick question for Rachel, how did you not send this guy home during the first rose ceremony? (Probable answer: “the producers asked me not to.”)
Also, there was that weird feud between Whaboom and Blake E.… and the two apparently already knew each other from ANOTHER reality show. Whoever casted both of them thinking they were actually “there for the right reasons” was seriously disturbed. The pair was clearly on the show for fame… but their 10 seconds was cut short due to there being a much more controversial dude cast this season.
3. DeMario, DeMario, DeMario.
Did you really think Rachel, the bad-ass lawyer who CLEARLY doesn’t mess around when it comes to finding love, wasn’t going to get to the bottom of this? Rule number one before auditioning for the Bachelor or Bachelorette, if you’re in a relationship…cut it off. Period. We shouldn’t feel too bad for Rachel, though, because karma paid DeMario a visit not that long ago
4.This creepy AF doll. We have so many questions and yet, we don’t really want the answers.
Okay, am I watching the horror movie Annabelle on Monday nights or The Bachelorette? Because with Adam‘s doll “Adam Jr.” on the show I can’t tell the difference. What is seriously up with Adam and his doll? You’re coming to find love, not someone to join you in your creepy ventriloquist act.
5. The producers finally declared war on these dumb-ass suitors and forced them into a spelling bee.
Even Anthony is shaking his head in disapproval of these dudes’ spelling skills (or lack thereof). I mean, yes, the mud-wrestling date was one thing, but the spelling bee? Someone please just tell Eric how to spell facade before it’s too late.
6. #BRINGBACKCOPPER #WENEEDCOPPER
Last, and most certainly not least, is Rachel’s precious four-legged friend. He’s a two-year-old rescue dog she adopted about two years ago named Copper! We last saw him on Rachel and Peter’s first date and the whole date revolved around dogs. Please, #BachelorNation join me when I say #BRINGBACKCOPPER.
Hope you all plan on tuning in tonight to see what other crazy shenanigans our girl, Rache has to overcome while she’s on the search for love!
