I think we can declare the biggest winner of this season of Bachelor in Paradise. Without a doubt it’s Danielle M. Not only did she leave on her own terms and not send home for not receiving a rose. She also kissed the only man that was ‘off limits’, who she had known for years and finds to be a really really good guy. And let’s not forget that she chose to leave to change the world for the better. If you came to Paradise, you put your life on hold for the change of love. But to stop that process in the middle to help children in need on the other side of the world, that is one of the most selfless acts a person can do. So let’s raise our glasses and say a cheers to Danielle M.
The soap on the beach continuous. Newest members of the cast is Sarah and everyone, with the exception of Adam, pushes her towards Ben. The moment they say she should be with Ben you see the smile on her face turning down. It’s clear that she’s not here for him, but for Adam, who is very happy to accept her invitation to a date. And though Raven gave them her blessing to explore if there is more between them, her face is saying something completely different when they go out.
Something we learned from watching tonight’s episode, complaining works. If you just keep complaining about not getting a date, you will receive a date card. Fine, simple enough. But what I don’t get is, that when you finally get the date card you’ve been begging for, you don’t know who to take out on your date. So what to do? Hold some sort of audition interviews, because of course… If you just spent several days with all of the men in Paradise, you’d think you know who you have chemistry and a connection with. And if you don’t have that with anyone, why beg for a date?
But anyways, Lace goes on a date with Diggy, put together by Jorge! Jorge just can’t keep away from Paradise and I can’t blame him. But Diggy didn’t want to be on a two-on-one, so when Jorge overstayed his welcome, he send him packing. And he and Lacey are on the start of something really good, according to Lacey. But Paradise wouldn’t be Paradise is they wouldn’t stir things up when things are going good. So in comes Dominique and I have no idea who she is. There is zero recognition, but apparently she’s from the latest season of the Bachelor and best friends with Taylor. Taylor is excited, who thinks she would be great with Diggy and Diggy is also very excited to see Dominique. The one who’s not excited is Lacey. One his date with Dominque, Diggy admits that he and Lacey had a nice that but that there’s nothing there, they’re not on the same wavelength. Say what? Did you not just make out with her earlier today? Sending Jorge packing to get some alone time?
A big congratulations to Carly and Evan! They are expecting a baby! I think the world just fell a little bit in love with Evan, when he got emotional during the ultrasound. What I noticed was Chris padding Evan on the shoulder during that. I love those little signs of friendship, respect and love for one another. It shows how real the connections are that are shaped during these shows are, keep that going.
Then it’s time for DeMario. Where we restarted the season with the other Paradise guest talking about everything that happened, now it’s time for DeMario. And I’m not going to speak about how others might feel, just my reflection on him and the situation. The DeMario I see here in the studio with Chris is a different DeMario than the one I saw on The Bachelorette. I know I easily get emotional watching TV, and I get emotional watching him. When he talked about the article that was written about how he had sex with Corinne, a friend wanted to intervene but the producer stopped her, all I could think is, ‘How in the world did they get to that?’ All we knew for sure was that production was stopped due to a complaint about the interaction between DeMario and Corinne. I know it’s easy to put two and two together, but people please think before making these assumptions. Not only can you potentially ruin someone’s live, but by making up stories like these, you make it harder for people to believe it when it actually is true. Something like this will follow the person, and their families, for the rest of their lives and for what? A higher rating? When is it going to stop? Till what point are the ratings more important than the lives of the people involved?
- “Plus guacamole comes with everything”.
- “These Bass-fish can swim”.
- “I don’t know what to do with a girl”.
- “Family, friends and Kanye West”.
- How long is Ben going to wear that red shirt?
- When did Ben become the charity case? He is the catch of the season!
- Though he is very excited for basically each of the women that steps on to the Paradise beach.
- Wells takes over from Alexis as the funniest person in the episode. Just turning the blender on as soon as Adam opens his mouth, simple but effective.
- You can say a lot about eating on the Bachelor shows, or the lack there of, but on Bachelor on Paradise, they eat!
- I love how giddy Carly is!
Next week we hear about how Corinne experienced it all.
