The Bachelor Review – Pillow “Flight” (24×03)

The Bachelor / ABC



This week on The Bachelor, we open with a pre-episode prologue recounting last week’s drama surrounding Kelsey’s bottle of champagne, with several girls interrogating our alleged thief, Hannah Ann. The issue seems to be not that she was stealing, but the fact that she was stealing champagne. I’m surprised that the triggering beverage isn’t rosé, considering its fascinating similarity to the word “rose.” But who knows–maybe they don’t have any Gatorade on the set of The Bachelor, so the bachelorettes must rely on champagne to replenish their electrolytes. Or perhaps it’s the carbonation that makes the champagne such a delicacy, and we need to watch out for the girls stealing some other alcoholic sparkly beverages. But don’t worry, Bachelor Nation, this episode is six-packed with some serious drama, and the White Claws certainly do come out.

After our first commercial break, Peter and Victoria P. go on a wild one-on-one date. Peter, a Los Angeles native, tells Victoria that he’s going to give her a glimpse into his hometown roots. At first, this makes literally no sense, since the entire date revolves around listening to live country music, square-dancing, and shopping for authentic cowboy boots. But then it becomes clear that they just filmed this while “Old Town Road” was dominating the charts and everyone in Los Angeles was pretending to be into country music in an attempt to feel relevant. Regardless, Peter and Victoria P. have a rootin’ tootin’ good time. This ain’t their first Rodeo Drive.

Since living in the Bachelor Mansion as a bachelorette is essentially just attending the world’s most exclusive two-month long sleepover, it was only fitting that this week’s group date is a massive pillow fight wrestling match. They kind of took the fun out of a group sleepover by replacing all the sexual tension with competitive tension. But I will say, I was intrigued when Peter leaned in from the sidelines and screamed, “Finish her!!!” The pillow fight is orchestrated and judged by Demi, last year’s fan-favorite and meme supplier. After the pillow fighting is complete, Peter truly absorbs the group sleepover party energy as he spends the next segment kissing a bunch of girls for the first time.

And now, we officially announce Season 24’s rousing plunge into one of the most famous tropes in The Bachelor: the mysterious case of Who Is Here For the Right Reasons. This week, we investigate the rivalry between Sydney and Alayah.

Sydney fills Peter in on some house-wide accusations that Alayah is fake and switches up her personality in front of the cameras. This leads to a long string of dramatic confrontations amongst multiple opponents: Sydney and Alayah, Alayah and Peter, Victoria F. and Alayah, Chris Harrison and his crushed belief in humanity–it just keeps going. At one point during the episode, Sydney asks Alayah, “Do you even have emotions?” To which Alayah–spoken like a true robot–responds, “Of course I do, I’m Heh-yewww-maaaan (alternate pronunciation: “Human”). Tune in next week as Alayah encrypts Peter’s data and demands that the girls confirm their identities by identifying three crosswalks.

Who Went Home After Hometown Dates on ‘The Bachelor’ Season 25 Week 8?



Who Went Home During Hometown Dates on 'The Bachelor' Season 25 Week 8?

The hometown dates are upon us on The Bachelor Season 25 Week 8! 

Michelle scored the first date!

The teacher brought her hometown of Minnesota to Nemacolin, a remote location in Pennsylvania, to give Matt a little taste of her life. She put Matt to the ultimate test: a Q+A with her students via a Zoom call!

>Meeting Michelle’s parents is a positive experience — they play basketball, Michelle tells him that she loves him, and everyone seems happy. 

The second date went to Rachael, a graphic designer from Cumming, Ga., who has had a bit of off-screen controversy.

Prior to meeting the family, the couple had a whirlwind date that involved going skydiving and Rachael’s crash landing. That seemed to bring her down to reality because while they both admitted that they’re falling in love with each other — and the family meeting went well despite her father’s objections that things were moving too fast (has he ever seen the show?) — Rachael realized she wasn’t the only one in the running after sharing that was disappointed that Matt didn’t ask for her father’s blessing. 

Rachael, hunny, we still have two more hometown dates ahead of us!

The third date was with Bri, who previously revealed she quit her dream job as a communications manager.

She threw it back to the first date in which Matt “almost killed” her and took him off-roading! A taste of his own medicine! 

Bri was excited for Matt to meet her single mom and her infant baby sister, but her mom was skeptical and wanted to remind her daughter to be “honest” and “vulnerable” about her feelings.  

And finally, Serena P. introduced Matt to her hometown of Canada before allowing him to meet her family. It’s a must if you’re going to date a “proud Canadian.”

However, during the meeting, her sister said she thinks “something is missing” and Serena doesn’t seem smitten, which kind of ruined the whole mood and made Serena realize she has a lot of doubts about the relationship. 

She wanted the hometown to get her to the point where she’s certain, but instead, it left her more confused about the situation. 

When the two sat down for a one-on-on, Matt tried to smooth things over. While Serena P. said that she initially thought it was fear, she later admitted to herself that she can’t go through with it because Matt’s not her person.

“I’m just not there, and I don’t know why,” she informs him. Despite the heartbreak, Matt took it like a champ and asked Serena P. to walk him downstairs. What a role-reversal! Is Serena P. The Bachelor now?

“I’m just disappointed because that’s not how I saw our journey ending,” he said.

And thus, the final three women moving onto Fantasy Suites are….

Rachael, 24, a graphic designer from Cumming, Ga.

Bri, 24, a communications manager from San Francisco, Calif.

Michelle, 27, a teacher from Edina, Minnesota

But which woman was the second choice had Serena P. not backed out?! I guess we’ll never know… XoXo. 

Ahead of tonight’s episode, Matt James also issued this statement on Twitter about the controversy surrounding Rachael and Chris Harrison. He explained he’s learning about these “incredibly disappointing” photos in “real time,” which leads me to believe the winner is Rachael but the duo broke up because of what transpired off-screen. 

He also condemned Harrison’s behavior. 

Check out his tweet below:

What do you think? Who will Matt choose? What did you think of that statement?
