The Bachelor Episode 4 Review: Chase Me Home to Cleveland (24×04)

The Bachelor / ABC

Published

While most episodes of The Bachelor seem to portray an extravagant, out of this world experience for the contestants, with the lavish dates, extraordinary mansions, and likely unlimited supply of S. Pelligrino, it seemed that this week’s theme was the threat of reality interfering with the experience of reality TV.

The episode kicks off with our first destination date at, you guessed it, Cleveland. Peter and Victoria F. enjoy some stunning Cleveland views–driveways, clouds, and a circle of dads in a parking lot full of Honda Cr-Vs putting a “reverse the curse” hex on the Cleveland Browns. 

Victoria F. and Peter take some twists and turns as they continue their date at Cedar Point, the roller coaster capital of the world. The couple has a wild time, and Peter charms us with some poetry about how relationships are just like a roller coaster–there are ups, there are downs, and while they always keep their charm, over time they start to develop a strange form of grease. 

All is well and dandy until Victoria F. and Peter go to the end of their date, a country music concert, and Victoria realizes that the singer is Chase Rice, her recent ex-boyfriend. Peter remains completely oblivious to this situation as they dance to Chase’s music and a panic-stricken Victoria watches her entire life flash before her eyes. While this is obviously Victoria’s one-on-one date, it seems that it is also her hometown date, as she spends the rest of the evening stressed and uncomfortable because of the presence of an ex-boyfriend who was wearing a baseball cap. Reality: 1. The Bachelor: 0.

The Bachelor continues its theme of midwestern pride with a football game group date. Twelve of the bachelorettes split up into teams and compete to stay on the date for some more one-on-one time with Peter, but the game ends in a tie, and the producers are forced to scramble for an aesthetically pleasing L shaped couch that is large enough to fit the contents of not one, but two overcrowded minivans.

Things are shaken up yet again when Alayah, who was eliminated last week due to some hazing from the other bachelorettes, returns in a villainous black and red jumpsuit to set the record straight. Alayah claims to have been backstabbed by Victoria P., who claimed to have barely known Alayah before the show. But Alayah shares with Peter that they actually have quite a bit of history as friends, and that Victoria P.’s misleading comments destroyed Alayah’s chances with him. At first, we aren’t sure what to believe, since Alayah was painted so negatively in the last episode and it seems that Victoria P. and Peter have some genuine trust and chemistry, but when Peter confronts Victoria P., she appears to be caught red-handed and genuinely caught in a lie that she can’t get out of. Victoria P and Peter’s connection is now in jeopardy, which is ironic considering that the show that airs before The Bachelor is The Wheel of Fortune. Reality: 2. The Bachelor: 0.

To add to the confusion, Alayah was off the show for a few days, which means that she had the one luxury that none of the bachelorettes have had in weeks–internet access. She stirs the pot with several secrets about what has been filming that she found from bachelor spoiler accounts online. What a beautiful representation of how, in this day and age, the internet always knows more about your life than you do. Reality: 3. The Bachelor: 0.

This week, The Bachelor reminds us that none of our personal lives are safe and that even if you aren’t applying to be on The Bachelor, you are always applying to be on The Bachelor. I think the last thing any of us expected was for Instagram to be the cause of bringing reality back into reality TV, but here we are. Hopefully, one day we will all know the freedom of being completely detached from social media and will be able to retreat to the one idyllic destination where we can get a taste of paradise–Cleveland.

‘The Bachelor’ Olympics-Themed Spinoff ‘Summer Games’ Cancelled

Published

The Bachelor spinoff Summer Games

Update 3/31/2020

ABC will not be moving forward with Olympics-themed spinoff “Summer Games,” Variety reported.

The competition was set to parallel the Summer Olympics in Tokyo this July, which was also canceled as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic. The sporting event was moved to next year, though, it’s unclear if the Bachelor franchise will air the series next year.

 

2/19/2020: The Bachelor is headed to the Olympics… well, their version of it anyway.

There doesn’t seem to be a cap on Bachelor franchise spinoffs because why would there be? We’re going to watch all of them anyway!

Just yesterday, the promo for The Bachelor: Listen To Your Heart, a musical spinoff, dropped its first promo, but here we are today talking about an Olympics-themed spinoff.

Following the success of The Bachelor Winter Games, ABC is bringing you the Summer Olympics, a summer version of the athletic spinoff playing off of the fact that the Olympics are happening this July in Tokyo.

The show will essentially feature contestants competing in Olympic-styled sports events, which will just be pure joy, and likely getting involved in drama and hooking up on the side.

“[Summer Games] will be its own thing and it’ll run — it’ll be Bachelorette Summer Games,” ABC’s Senior Vice President of Alternative Programming Rob Mills said on The Ringer’s Bachelor Party podcast on Tuesday.

“What’s nice about Summer Games, is when we did Winter Games, Bachelor was still airing, so it was a lot . . . This is Summer Games, and then Paradise will start . . . There is going to be both,” he explained.

“I think it’s going to be really fun,” he added. “We found a really great place to hold it. I mean, it’s going to be so fun seeing these people in these great, you know, track and field, and swimming. This is a real Olympics. To me, this is the real Olympics.”

Though summer is just a few months away, Mills isn’t sure who is going to be in it.

“I still think we need to look at the creative, and it’s like, do you — if somebody is with somebody or not, can they be in it?” he said. “‘Cause there’s certain people that you’d love to see — I mean, I’d love to see Jordan [Rodgers] or Colton [Underwood].”

All of this basically translates to us living, breathing, and sleeping Bachelor content!

No premiere date has been set for Summer Games yet, but Listen to Your Heart arrives in April!

Are ‘The Bachelor’s’ Peter Weber and Kelley Dating? They Were Spotted Cozying Up in Chicago

Published

The Bachelor's Peter Weber and Kelley Dating

Clearly, Peter Weber did not get the memo about social distancing.

Peter’s season of The Bachelor may be over — and spoiler: he didn’t end up with any of the women — but he seems to have found love with one of the contestants he sent home, Kelley Flanagan.

The pilot and the lawyer were seen cozying up in her hometown of Chicago on Wednesday afternoon.

The duo was spotted hitting the riverwalk and cuddling up. At one point, Peter even picked Kelley up over his head, which isn’t surprising because all the girls loved to jump on Peter when they greeted him this season.

TMZ reports that Peter was very handsy with Kelley.

All of this might have been cuter if not for the fact that Chicago is currently under a “stay at home” order to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

The whole idea is that people are supposed to be staying at home and not congregating in public meeting spaces like parks, riverwalks, beaches, etc. Chicagoans have been ignoring the government order, which is enforced by law, so the Mayor was forced to impose fines of $500 smackaroos for anyone caught purposefully breaking the rule. She also said she would shut down parks and the entire lakefront. 

If Kelley is giving Peter a second chance, if they’re soulmates, if they’ve figured it all out, it’s all great, just please stay indoors and stay away from other people!

I’m sure they can find something productive to do.

And if you gotta walk the pooch, make your walk quick and 6-feet away from other people.

Madison Prewett and Peter Weber

We’re not kidding, it lasted like a total of two days.

Just days after that dramatic The Bachelor finale which found Peter Weber and Madison Prewett vowing to give their love a chance despite plenty of objections (both vocal and through facial expressions from our girl Barb), the couple has called it quits. Done. Duzno.

Peter broke the news on Instagram thanking both Madi and ex-fiancee Hannah Ann.

Madi, thank you for your patience and unconditional love. You’re the epitome of a woman who carries herself with grace, stands by what she believes in, and loves whole heartedly. That love is something I feel so grateful to have felt and will take a piece of that with me always going forward. Madi and I have mutually decided to not pursue our relationship any further. Believe me this was not easy for either of us to be ok with, but after a lot of honest conversations, we have agreed that this is what makes most sense for the two of us. The love and respect I have for Madi will continue to endure.

Hannah Ann, you set an example for women everywhere a couple nights ago. You are such a strong, confident woman and you deserve all the love in the world. I accept full responsibility for my mistakes in our relationship and wish you only the best. This has been an emotional experience and I am so grateful for the outreach of support that I have received from friends, family, and Bachelor Nation in the last few days. Thank you to all of you! This is just a another chapter in my story.

I want to start by acknowledging the incredible group of women that I had the privilege of getting to know this season. Thank you for coming on this journey with me. I learned so many lessons from all of you that I will carry with me. Madi, thank you for your patience and unconditional love. You’re the epitome of a woman who carries herself with grace, stands by what she believes in, and loves whole heartedly.

A post shared by Peter Weber (@pilot_pete) on

Since then, he’s gone back to hanging out with his mom while Madi, who also posted about the break-up, has found solace playing board games with Selena Gomez.

All’s well in the world.

Naturally, Twitter had some commentary.

Oh, and for those of you who think Barb played a role in the breakup, Peter assures that she did not.

On his way to the gym on Friday, Weber refuted the comments saying, “This is stuff between Madi and I solely 100 percent. People have their opinions but it should just be two of us and it’s just mutual respect and love,” according to Page Six.

That’s that Bachelor Nation.
