Monday night’s new episode of “The Bachelor” was practically sponsored by Jimmy Kimmel, largely because of all of the various times in which he appeared to help “sponsor” some of the dates. We do have to say that for the most part, we really liked having him there! He helped keep this season from being boring, and Chris Soules is hardly the most magnanimous personality in the history of the show.
Also, it turns out that Jimmy has a knack for organizing one-on-one dates, or at least making it look like he is the one behind them. Take a look at some assorted highlights behind the episode.
Kaitlyn’s time – This date was all kinds of ridiculous, mostly because Jimmy sent the two of them to Costco in order to buy him stuff, and then had Chris make him dinner.
The group date – This was all sorts of ridiculous, mostly because you had some poor women being told to milk goats. We really thought that Carly was going to win this, but she ended up being taken down by Becca, who managed to win the rose despite not even kissing Chris. Who would’ve thought?
Whitney’s date – This whole wedding-crashing business was just so ridiculous, and we don’t understand what in the world the show even pretended like this was realistic. Whitney is a trooper for going through all of this, and above all else, she and Chris got along very well.
The cocktail party – The biggest controversy we see in here was mostly Juelia Kinney telling what we feel is a very personal story about her present situation on camera, and early this season. In our opinion, this was far too early to share such a story. We would’ve preferred she wait for a while, or tell him off-camera.
There was also a little bit of drama where Jillian Anderson waited forever to get to speak with Chris in the hot tub, and that didn’t work out like she hoped.
Rose Ceremony – There’s nothing particularly notable that happened here, given that we saw the end of the road for Trina, Tracy, and Amber. Amber did kiss Chris last week, but there was nothing about the three that ever screamed “favorite.” Grade: B.
