It’s another double dose of the Bachelorette tonight, as we get the episode and the reunion-esque “men tell all” show one after the other. We start with the final three getting to go to the Bahamas and have one on one all day (and all night..) dates with DeAnna. Jeremy is up first, and they play on jetskis and Deanna hopes he’ll let go and have some fun, but he goes all weird on her and shuts down. It’s like he’s a teenage boy on his first date all of the sudden, and he finally tells her that he’s scared to lose her, and she gives him the fantasy suite card and they rush off to the private room to spend the night.
Jason’s date involves off roading and a secluded picnic and even some kayaking – which they really suck at, since neither have done it before. They laugh a lot and seem to have a really great time. He tells her that his son and her are his favorite subjects and later gives her a necklace and they get all lovey dovey as she kisses him eagerly and of course, he gets the dream suite too. In fact, he doesn’t even read the rest of the note, getting to ‘spend the night’ and giddily dragging her off like a schoolboy, as she follows laughing.
Jesse’s turn for the all day date involves horseback riding on the beach and lots of laughter and a sensitive romantic side of Jesse. He gets serious and they talk of kids and marriage and what their life would be like together. He assures her that she has a place in his life and he’s falling for her. She gives him the card, and he says he isn’t sure he can take it until he meets her dad. She’s shocked – but turns out he was just teasing her and off they run to the suite and she loves that he makes her laugh.
Its rose ceremony time, and DeAnna says her heart is breaking because she has feelings for all three – but she sends Jeremy home and he’s obviously heartbroken over it. He even has to have the limo pull over so he can morosely wander around a little before leaving for good. DeAnna says she simply couldn’t confuse their bond over lost parents with love and she feels a genuine connection with the other two guys. Awwwww, poor Jeremy!
So who will it be? Jason and instant family life or Jesse and adventure? We’ll find out next week as both of them propose, and one leaves heartbroken…
The Men Tell all, next, and it’s not really any different then any reunion show. They show moments of conflict and laughter, and some confrontations of course when they ask DeAnna why they were sent home and such. They all agree it’s rather a hard thing to go through, but are glad they did. Jeremy finds out that she knew she was over him when she went out with Jason and Jesse, and he looks like she socked him one. She and Graham bicker a bit, but all of that was expected.
She does announce that she’s happy, in love, and engaged – we’ll see to who during the finale.
The best part of the whole show though was an audience member asking Fred how his love life is going and if he’d go out on a date with her. He said his lovelife is going well, but could only be better if he got to go on a date with her. Well played, Fredly, well played!
