Please welcome the lovely Ali Fedotowsky to the Ladies’ Lounge blog! She was the lucky lady with her pick of 25 men on season six of The Bachelorette, and now she’s recapping the new season of The Bachelor with us! Be sure to check back each week for her take on the new episodes.
Hi guys! I’m so excited to watch this season of The Bachelor with all of you! This first blog is going to be a bit all over the place since the first episode of the season is really just about meeting the girls. It feels so surreal that it’s been two years since I was one of the girls walking out of the limo to meet the bachelor. The funny thing is, I was super sick the night I met the bachelor and I’m really sick today too. Something about the anticipation of this night must kill my immune system. Maybe I’m allergic to roses!
Let’s start with Ben. I really like him. He seems like a normal, chill guy looking for love. Plus he owns a winery, which puts him ahead of the game in my book! I wish we saw a little more of his interactions with the girls during this episode, but I guess there was too much drama going on. I hope the next episode focuses on Ben’s connections with the girls a little more.
Jenna: The poor thing definitely overanalyzes everything. I really liked her at the beginning of the show and then she just took things way too seriously! There was a lot of awkwardness between her and Ben during their first meeting, but I thought she would recover. She definitely didn’t. Instead, she turned the show into some sort of tragic comedy. I wanted to feel bad for her, but then I couldn’t help but laugh at the ridiculous things she was saying. I have to say the “maybe we can share a tampon sometime” statement was hilarious and sad at the same time. Where did that come from?! I have to wonder if that was a spontaneous comment or if she had said that sometime before. Either way, she should never use that saying again… ever. My conclusion on Jenna is that I think she was drunk and this just isn’t the right experience for her.
Nikki: I think Nikki is a sweetheart and I find it very interesting that she is a dental hygienist. She reminds me of former bachelorette Ashley Herbert—which makes me like her even more! Ben seemed to like her when they first met outside of the limo and their one-on-one time was nice too.
Casey S.: She was so beautiful and sweet, although she didn’t have much to say when they first met. I hope we hear more form her throughout the season.
Brittney: How cute is Brittney’s grandma, Sheryl?! I love my grandma so much, and I just loved that Brittney’s grandmother came with her. I would have given ANYTHING to have my grandma there with me that first night. I feel like Brittney and I have a lot in common based on the little bit we got to know about her. I hope we get to see a lot more of her! Read more
