Lies, Letters and Dirty Lads- Bachelorette Recap 6

The episode starts out in Venice and it looks absolutely incredible. Andi starts out the episode by announcing that the first one-on-one date begins right away. Everyone expects it to go to I Kiss My Own Muscles, Cody since he is the only one who hasn’t been on one yet, but instead it goes to […]

Our Reno Rendezvous 2014 Recap

Snitches, Prudes and Lame Ol’ Dudes- Bachelorette Recap 5

P, P, P, Poker Face, P, P, Poker Face- Bachelorette Recap 4

The episode starts off with everyone in Connecticut because…. Why? What’s in Connecticut? ABC must be running out of money. The guys start off with a group bath (is this what men do when they get together?) and then the date card arrives and it goes to Dylan. They take a train ride and Dylan […]
