Yawn. If there is one word we’d use to describe most of Tuesday night’s “Bachelor in Paradise” episode, this has to be it: Boring. What in the world was most of that?
Let’s start by saying that in some ways, we totally understand the idea to bring Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert back as a shining example of what a couple from this show could be, but this was dull-as-nails couples therapy. Sure, it spawned some doubts from Lace Morris and Grant Kemp, but are they really that interesting? Jen Saviano has barely been on the show, so her relationship with Nick Viall is the equivalent of a shrug at this point.
Now, let’s get into what’s going on with Ashley Iaconetti and Caila Quinn, mostly because we figure that we have to at some point. This whole love triangle with Jared nonsense was fun for about ten minutes. Now, it’s so dull that we’d rather go back and watch the job interview with Jade and Tanner. It’s the SAME THING EVERY WEEK. Jared or Caila does something, and Ashley cries. We get where she’s coming from since we’ve all been in the position where you love someone and they don’t love you back, but why put yourself in this position … again?
Now, the positive. For some odd, sadistic reason, we find Evan Bass and Carly Waddell interesting. They’re the mess-of-a-relationship that you can’t look away from, and for some reason the show keeps giving them the weirdest dates imaginable. We’d prefer the show had stuck on this versus more Ashley and Jared, which was frankly an insufferable way to end things, especially when ABC promised Wells Adams going into this. We’ve taken things to another level of frustration, folks! We had a completely unnecessary hour of TV, so let’s go ahead and forget this happened, okay? Grade: D+.
