Through one episode of “The Bachelor,” it certainly feels as though Lace Morris has been set up to be the resident villain of the season, or at least of however long she is going to be around (which really doesn’t feel like too long, based on how she is acting). She is not only polarizing to the other women, but she is also quick to even confuse and frustrate him. For example, she seemed upset with him after getting a rose from him, which is pretty much the strangest thing ever.
Also strange? Making a group date about high school, which is mostly a reminder that this is probably the youngest cast ever and some of the contestants may not be that much more mature than your average twelfth-grader. Take a look at the synopsis below for some more details, including some further Lace antics, which prove that she is on a group date:
“School spirit is center stage as Ben invites ten women to come back with him in time for challenges in four high school class periods: science, lunch, geography and gym. The winner will be crowned homecoming queen and will capture special alone time with Ben. After a day of comical tests, one bachelorette walks away with the crown and reigns supreme next to her handsome homecoming king. The other women, green with envy, can only watch as the couple take a victory lap around the high school track.
“Emotions heat up at the after party as Lace steals Ben away, leading to a confrontation between her and another woman. One anxious woman finally gets her opportunity to talk to Ben. They share a romantic kiss overlooking a panoramic view of Los Angeles, but will she get the group date rose?”
In other words, Ben will get his first longer kiss of the season in this episode. Technically he got one from Lace premiere night, but it was quick and he shot down her attempt at another one. We’ll have to see what the rest of the episode holds, since as reported already Caila Quinn is getting a one-on-one date in this episode.
