Thoughts on Women Tell All

Alright, the fact that I'm actually writing a blog post about The Bachelor's WTA must tell you that I REALLY miss watching this show with other girls! Grant is good to discuss comments and girls with me and laugh with me, but there just isn't a substitute to watching this show without other women present. So, these are my thoughts! Feel free to have a discussion with me in the comments--I love it!

This was probably the most catty, intense, ridiculous WTA I've ever seen in all my years of watching! Right off the bat we had our first cat fight between Britt and Carly. 

Here are my thoughts on each girl:


So I'll admit, I've never really been a huge fan of Britt. She's always seemed kind of fake to me and seems to wear a lot of make-up and dress like she's in middle school (Am I the only one that feels like she has HUGE lips and a really ugly cry?). However, I could see where she was coming from a little bit after the WTA. It's ok to change your mind about an opinion that you have, and you shouldn't always feel obligated to stick to your first impression of something (whether it's your first impression about a town or your first reaction to a date card). That being said, the big thing that still bothered me was when Carly, Kaitlyn, and her were on that group date and she was super rude about Kaitlyn getting the group date rose. I didn't like how she always felt like she was the front-runner. Even during WTA, she admitted that if it wasn't for Carly, she felt like she would have ended up with Chris. That's a slap in the face to the other girls, and especially a slap in the face to whoever Chris ends up with (my prediction is Whitney--Grant's is Becca). And please, do you really have to cry when you first see Chris and then give him the longest hug known to man? That was so awkward for everyone. The man is probably engaged! He doesn't love you! Get over yourself!


I always liked Carly during the season. Her and I seemed to have the same opinions about the girls in the house, and she was just really fun loving. That being said, I do think that it's never a wise choice to be the self-appointed "protector" of the bachelor/ette and take it upon yourself to warn him of other girls in the house, which is what I feel like she did. I also think the jabs she made at Jillian during their mud-run were meant to be in jest and kind of as a compliment to Jillian that she was super in shape, but it came off as offensive (I'd be offended too!). I think Carly has a sarcastic sense of humor which is sometimes at the expense of other people. All in all though, I do think that Britt had no right to blame Carly for the demise of her relationship with Chris.


How do you even begin with this woman? I do feel really bad that Ashley I. alluded to the fact that her first husband didn't even exist (and she should feel horrible for even saying that), but seeing the contrast between Kelsey's emotions to her husband dying and Jeulia's emotions to her husband dying are pretty telling. I get that everyone grieves in different ways, but something just seemed really off when Kelsey told both the girls and Chris about her husband. It kind of seemed like she kept that card in her back pocket and decided to bring it out when it was advantageous for her. I hope she can move on. I think she will go down in history as having the best line in Bachelor history. "I know what you did."

Ashley I:

She needs to grow up. Yes, Kelsey was really rude about the things that she said about her, but she seriously needs to grow up. 

Ashley S:

She really surprised me! I think she was my favorite girl to talk last night! She was seriously so funny. "I just thought 'I'm bored' so I'm going to go explore." "All the girls in the house are crying and I'm just out picking pomegranates." Haha! She was so crazy on the show, but I think she was just trying to make things fun. Makes me wonder why she even went on the show in the first place. It just seemed like she went on the show to try and lighten the mood instead of fall in love with Chris.


I was a really big fan of Jade during the whole season. I don't think she should've blamed Chris though for not being honest about her showing him her photos. That's an awkward position to put anyone in, and if I were in his position I wouldn't know what to say. You don't want to offend them by saying no, but it's also really uncomfortable. I think part of the problem is she didn't seem to regret posing for Playboy either (which is fine if you're proud of it, but understand that it may make others uncomfortable). I hope she finds someone who can accept her past and move on.


Rumor has it that she is the next bachelorette--I'm so excited! I've always been a big fan of her. She has a good sense of humor, but she also knows how to be serious. She be a good season!

Alright, thanks for reading this. This is what happens when I don't have girls to chat with about this! I'm freaking stoked for the finale next week!
