This week's episode of The Bachelor definitely felt like some Mercury in retrograde action was going on. It felt like a pretty weak episode overall, but drama kicked in high gear at the rose ceremony when everyone was ganging up on Jubilee for giving Ben a massage. As everyone on the show would say, "literally" give the guy a break. This episode was sort of a disappointment and underwhelming, but we know more Olivia drama will be coming in the near future. Also, everyone needs to cut Jubilee some slack. They just don't get it.
Question of the night: Why is Ben so obsessed with hot tubs??
There was a hot tub involved in both one-on-one dates PLUS the random, awkward time he and Caila ended up in a hot tub with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart. Maybe Ben is just trying to live that Cali lifestyle while he can, but it's kinda bizarre how he's always in a hot tub on dates. We know he's a Pisces-Aries cusp, so he's mixing his overly sexual and sensual emotions for some cool date vibes. Hopefully he can come up with some better date ideas. Lauren B's quote, "At this point, I'm not even thinking about how this hot tub arrived in the middle of nowhere" pretty much hit the nail on the head.
Best gossip of the night: Olivia has weird toes
Ok...the fact that they're gossiping about her TOES is one thing, but it gets even better when Ben says he's having a rough day because family friends passed away and then Olivia steals him first to talk about her cankles. Girl needs to get a clue. But Olivia is so Leo-centric (or is she more Capricorn? thoughts?) that the only goal she sees is her future with Ben ("I will be the next Mrs. Ben Higgins").
Best random moment: Lace quotes her own tattoo
We need to give Lace some credit. We knew from the start that she was going to be one of the more vocal contestants, but she definitely blindsided us with her decision to go home. Good for you, Lace, for deciding to work on yourself first. Just like her tattoo says, "You can't love someone else if you don't love yourself". Truer words have never been spoken...or tattooed.
