The Bachelorette Week 7 & 8: Love = Get the Eff Out

Don't worry, loyal fans, after a week hiatus, I am back! Last week was Hometowns, and to be honest, there wasn't much to say. We did get to see a lot more about the Rodgers family drama, and it definitely seems like this Jordan v. Aaron stuff is real. But I don't know, I am still a Jordan fan all the way!!! The episode left us with an always unwanted To Be Continued, so we don't even yet know who the final 3 will be... Will she send Luke home like she told us she planned to, or will his last ditch effort at her affection save himself and doom a fellow contestant??? I guess we will finally find out tonight...

JoJo manages to pull herself together and stop sobbing long enough to hand out the roses, and they go to... Jordan first, of course, Robby second (and I am actually a little surprised about that one), and finally... Chase! And it looks like she didn't change her mind about Luke after all, crazy! JoJo is of course all sorts of torn up about this, but I am pretty satisfied. I'm telling you, there was just something about him that was odd, or dumb, or something off. Your rugged looks can only get you so far, my friend. Adios! Luke either looks totally thrown off, or he is just staring into space because he can't understand what is happening. Luke: You. Are. Being. Sent. Home. Can your mind comprehend this? JoJo keeps crying her eyes out, and Luke continues to stare blankly at her, and I can't watch this much longer. Go back and see the guys who can actually hold intelligent conversations!

So finally that emotional breakdown is over, and JoJo heads to Thailand with the final 3 guys. And you know what this means... Fantasy Suite dates.. oh sorry I mean, "exotic overnight dates"...!! Finally, the chance to weed out the ones that just can't hack it. I can't wait. The first date of the week goes to Robby, and he is confident in their relationship for sure. They have a nice date, even amidst thunderstorms, and I am even feeling a bit better about him. I won't lie, last week I was skeptical of Robby with all the ex-girlfriend drama, but I think he might actually be genuine after all. He continuously tells her that he loves her, and JoJo is full on smitten. And she is definitely excited about their night in the Fantasy Suite... Ohh yeah. JoJo trusts Robby 100% and admits to us that she loves him and can't wait to be intimate with him. Some part of me just worries that something will go wrong!! JoJo knows that she loves him, but is not going to tell anyone until it is down to the final guy. Yeah, BEN. Don't want to go breaking people's hearts by telling multiple people you love them! But yeah. It's looking pretty serious with him.
Even though JoJo loves Robby, she has another date with Jordan, who has been a frontrunner from day one, so anything is possible! They have a lovely date together, and some great chats, but JoJo is still wondering- is he too good to be true??? But I mean, a lot of past Bachelors have thought that (ahem, Ben and Lauren B.), and it has worked out great. So don't fear, JoJo! But apparently Ben totally screwed JoJo up, because he made her all these promises, so now she can't trust when Jordan says he wants to spend his life with her. Hmm... It seems like all JoJo does with Jordan is question him and his motives and intentions, and she just seems sooo skeptical. Why doesn't she trust and believe him??? Just accept that he is amazing and loves you and be happy about it. After all this, JoJo realizes that she does love Jordan too, and I guess this could become a problem! Two guys she loves so far, and two nights in fantasy suites... what will happen now???

In case we all forgot, JoJo does have one more guy here- Chase. I actually really like Chase. I think he is the best overall package- attractive, successful, down to earth. Everything. But the likelihood that she is in love with all 3 of them?! Doubtful. Most of us aren't expecting much from this date, but it turns out that JoJo is having an incredible time and doesn't want the date to end... So what does this mean?! Chase is ready to tell JoJo he loves her, and she seems to feel similarly.

So as JoJo is getting ready for the dinner portion of her date with Chase, she gets a knock on her door, and what the crap, Robby shows up at her hotel room. He just wanted to say hi and remind her about how much he loves her and wants a life with her. In the middle of her date with Chase! JoJo thinks it is super sweet and romantic, but it's also pretty rude!!! Just let her figure things out for herself and enjoy her date with Chase. Luckily, she does continue her date with Chase and they also head to the Fantasy Suite together... Chase finally tells her that he is totally in love with her, and JoJo realizes that she isn't actually in love with him like she is with the other guys. GAH. Not surprised but bummed. He would be such an amazing husband and doesn't use the L word lightly! I can't say this is a shock, but it will be sad to see a great guy like Chase be hurt like this. Ohhh JoJo. So she has to take a moment, and returns to tell Chase that she just isn't feeling the same way he does. And rightfully, he is pissed! He NEVER tells people that he loves them, and now he does, and he gets shot down! He doesn't even get any fun in the fantasy suite tonight! Because apparently Love = "get the f*ck out". Chase totally takes it like a man as she sobs and tries to chase him down, but he's like, stop giving me this bullshit after I just put myself out there. Pass. (Chase for next Bachelor! I'd watch that.) Chase peaces out, cracks open a cold beverage, and heads into the van, and we wonder if Chase will EVER tell another girl he loves her. I'd put my money on no.
JoJo is still holding a rose ceremony, even with only two guys left, because as we know, it is a two-way street. Should be simple enough, right? But just as JoJo starts telling Jordan and Robby about sending Chase home... Chase shows up to the ceremony to have a little chat! Whatttt? Did you not realize that you were sent home?? It turns out that Chase isn't here to ask to come back (just suspicious timing...), but he just wants to show how freaking classy he is, and tell her he understands and isn't mad. His heart is still open, but he is proud of her for doing what she feels is best. But really, Chase, could you BE a better guy??!?! You'll find someone even better than her who WILL love you back, we just know it!!! So anyway, at the end of the day, she gives roses to both Jordan and Robby, and we'll have to wait and see what happens between these two!

Tomorrow night is Men Tell All (aka Chad is back with a vengeance), and the finale is already next week! And I am sure it will be the most dramatic finale EVER. Until then...
