America loves you, Shawn. Quit your trippin'.
Country Joe and uptight JJ are on the 2 on 1 date. The date is typically awkward, mostly because these are two completely different guys. We haven't heard a lot from Joe, and we've heard a little too much from JJ.
Notice that JJ has his arm around Kaitlyn, and Joe has a scowl on his face.
Joe has the first bit of the date, He speaks from the heart, and says he is falling in love with her.
I am smitten with that country boy.
JJ takes a bit of a different approach. He admitted that three years ago he cheated on his wife, which ultimately destroyed his marriage. She kisses JJ, but the kisses aren't quite as steamy as they were with Joe. Is she already starting to distance herself? Is she grossed out that he cheated on his wife?
Guess so. She sent JJ home. She kept Joe, but doesn't give him the rose. She needs more time with him. So JJ is left on the beach, while Joe and Kaitlyn go make out somewhere. He must have gotten the rose at some point, but I missed it.
Meanwhile, Shawn is still freaking out. He needs to talk to Kaitlyn, AGAIN.
At the rose ceremony, Ben H. stole my heart when he was speaking to Kaitlyn. He said if he's not the one, then let him go.
I am smitten. He's going to stay.
Nick also has some time with Kaitlyn, when she has to ask Nick to keep their night of passion on the DL (news flash: perhaps she should have had this conversation BEFORE the did the walk of shame the next morning). He said he never said their night was romantic, or passionate, or intimate (LIES!). They end up making out.
Nick (one on one)
Jared (group date)
Joe (two on one)
I wouldn't mind seeing Ben Z. as the next Bachelor.
Kaitlyn and the guys are now taking a road trip to Killarney, Ireland. Most of the guys are in a bus, but Kaitlyn takes Jared on a roadtrip date together. They don't really do anything exciting, she doesn't give him a rose, but they do kiss the Blarney stone together:
|this is not how I imagined it would be.|
Kaitlyn is such a basket case that Harrison has to break in, He says that she has to let three guys go, and narrow it down to three. Then, instead of going to hometowns, she'll have her intimate overnight dates. That way, she'll have "off camera" time with all of the guys before she meets the families.
Kaitlyn agrees. This makes sense to her.
The first One on one is with Chris. They take a helicopter to the edge of a cliff and they have a picnic. But it doesn't go well. Kaitlyn says that her heart is elsewhere. She says he's the perfect guy, but she's not feeling it. Peace out, Chris.
Chris cries like a little B. Kaitlyn goes back to the helicopter and flies away. Chris is left to jump off the cliff. He seriously freaks out.
What do you think? Who is she going to pick anyone at the end? And will he stay with her after he finds out what she did with Nick?
