Greetings, Trashies! We covered a lot of the recent Bachelor Nation drama in the minicap, so let’s get right to this week’s episode. It starts with Kimberly coming back into the house to talk to Chris and beg for another chance. He pretends to agonize over it, but we all know that he’s going to let her back in the house. This is mainly because right after last week’s episode they released pictures of this week’s group date and Kimberly was on it. Needless to say, the other ladies are pissed.
The next morning, Chris and Chris Harrison are talking about the rose ceremony. Basically, it was such a blur that Chris doesn’t remember a thing. What a coincidence! Neither does Tara! Anyway, they sit and talk about how this is the first time the lead is staying only a few yards away from his harem.
Speaking of Chris’ harem, a date card arrives! It’s for Jade, Tandra, Ashley I., Mackenzie, Kimberly, and Tara. It’s says, “Show me your country. – Chris.” There is no way the producers didn’t do that on purpose. I sure hope they didn’t leave out the O in that word.
After a quick commercial break, the ladies meet Chris on the roof of a hotel to have a pool party. Wow. They’re really pulling out all the stops on this date, aren’t they? I guess they’ve got a $15 budget for the entire season. Honestly, this is just an excuse for Chris to check out the girls in their bikinis to decide who he wants to send home tonight.
After a montage of Chris and the ladies having chicken fights and playing Marco Polo, Kimberly gets some alone time. She apologizes for putting Chris on the spot and they reintroduce themselves. I mean that literally. Chris goes around the corner and pretends to meet her for the first time. Then Kimberly gives him a plant to symbolize how their relationship will grow. Is anyone else reminded of the love fern from How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days?
This scene will never not be funny to me.
