The Bachelorette Recap: Where Have All the Nice Guys Gone?

The Bachelorette Season 11

Do you suddenly find yourself yawning while watching The Bachelorette? Are you sitting down on the couch with a lingering sense of dread? Are you tempted to let the DVR pick up your weekly viewing slack, leaving the fast-forward button to do the heavy lifting on Tuesday morning?

Then you might be suffering from Nick Viall Fatigue.

After Andi Dorfman’s ex-suitor returned to the Bachelorette franchise last Monday, this week’s episode of the reality TV series contained little more than tense conversations about Nick, sidelong glances at him and one particularly awkward moment in which Joshua tried to sabotage Nick’s presence in the competition.

And when the contestants weren’t discussing their Nick-related bitterness with the producers, the two-hour drama-fest also introduced (yet another) new villain — one you may not have expected — and featured two emotionally charged one-on-one dates.

Plus, for those that may have missed it, one of the week’s buzziest moments occurred last Friday, when Kaitlyn may or may not have revealed the eventual winner of Season 11. (Oops.)

    Ian just asked the question we all were thinking. Is she really that shallow.

  2. wrstlgirl says:

    And next week she goes and does exactly what Ian was talking about. This season is just bad, or should I say worse than others, lol!!! Somewhere Juan Pablo is taking a bow.

  3. Jackie says:

    Am I the only one who felt bad for the guys obviously freezing their tushies off at the stadium rose ceremony? The obvious teeth chattering and jumping up and down to stay warm while Kaitlin (in a coat of course!) drags out the doling out of roses…and as I was thinking maybe the guys just didn’t have coats there they could wear, Chris Harrison cones out in a nice warm coat! I would have liked to have seen someone tackle him for that coat! Forget the rose!

    You don’t want to be there because you’re all that and you can get girls twice as hot as Kaitlyn, but she’s the shallow one. Got it, Ian. Now get lost, loser.

  5. Berry says:

    Wow what an incredible jerk she is, with a rude ugly personality. Those guys are too ;good for her except for Nick She belongs with Nick, the other appalling loudmouth pervert Hope they don’t reproduce.

    • Timmah says:

      These whiny, insecure guys who aren’t even smart enough to figure out that they’ve got each other to compete with and not just Nick, are too good for her? I don’t think so.

  6. Tennisnsun says:

    This season is a total snore. My feeling is that ABC brought Nick back (ugggh) because they knew the show was a disaster and he would provide drama. Don’t understand why the guys blame Kaitlyn for bringing him back. Obviously she doesn’t have that kind of power. Personally I switched over very quickly last night and watched reruns of Shark Tank. Now there’s some interesting drama!

  7. After watching 2 episodes of UnREAL, I can’t watch this show the same way ever again. I watched them give Josh half a haircut, making him actually visually ridiculous, and then sling him under the honestly bus and I was reminded of the ‘rodeo queen’ that they keep around as a punching bag. And when Ian went in total d-bag mode, my only thought was of the ‘Uncle Tom’ scene and I wondered who got THAT cash bonus.

    I think this franchise shot itself in the foot. After an entertaining BACHELOR with Chris Soules, the BACHELORETTE is a mess, and not in a good way. (And I stopped watching last week, but had to read the recap here.) Stop giving second chances and introduce us to someone new in the center. The producers and tone of the show makes it seem more irrelevant than ever. No one is there for the right reasons anymore. And there is less and less class to the proceedings. Even the travel seems less exciting, and that was one of the hallmarks of this show even when at its lowest.

    • BrittBrat says:

      Chris Soules was not entertaining and neither is this season. Chris was boring and couldn’t communicate very well either.

  9. cheri says:

    Just starting the Bachelor/Bachelorette. Chris from the Bachelor was totally unbelievable. Those 2 have already split. From the Bachelorette, never liked Kaitlin b4 and like her even less now. What a phony. Wish all these guys would just walk out on her.

  10. cheri says:

    As an American, I feel totally embarrassed with the open display of slutty affection between Kaitlin and whomever she is with at the time. Especially in a foreign country.
