The Scent of Goodbye

Along with designated bad person Male Model Jordan and his shiny, gold boxers, the star of this week’s episode was Park City, Utah because that’s where my friend Angie lives. It’s highly likely this excited me far more than Angie. Less exciting to me were dates involving riding in and on things going fast, axes and red flannel shirts[1], and a country music concert. None of these things have ever been in my repertoire.

One of the things I enjoy about the Bachelor franchise is how outraged – in an entertaining way – I can become at allegedly mature young adults acting incredibly childish. Specifically, the way everybody gets so irritable over designated bad person Male Model Jordan (MMJ) is absolutely delightful. Sure, he’s a buffoon but an easily ignored buffoon. Guys – just do YOUR thing and let Becca sort out what’s what. Having said that, you have to love how the producers fanned the flames by having MMJ’s antagonist, broken-beaked David, arrive from the hospital in limo EXACTLY during MMJ’s one-on-one time with Becca. And she stops the party to give him a (sympathy) rose, no less.

Not getting a rose was “colognoisseur” Jean Blanc in as awkward and confusing a break-up I can recall seeing on the show. There’s always that person who thinks the relationship (after, like, zero actual dates) is much farther along than it actually is (because there have been, like, zero actual dates) and Jean Blanc was that person. But did he try to gaslight her after she didn’t reciprocate his feelings? Or did he admit that he was just playing “the game”? And was he trying to get back the bottle of perfume he gave Becca? I didn’t get him.

Anyway, it looks like he’s recovered nicely with this:

It does appear from the previews that MMJ and broken-beaked David may have a two-on-one date that will send one of them home. Whoever it is, the other will surely follow as she doesn’t seem to very invested in either of them.

Wow. Am I done with things to say already? Is it me? Is it Becca? Is it the guys? This season doesn’t seem to have any juice.

Until the next time . . .
