We knew going into this season, that this season was different. This was the first season that a contestant has died before the season began, and how were they going to handle it? Well… it happened.
Before we get to the promised drama that was this two night episode, we have our first one-on-one date. This date went to Dylan. They spent their date on the Essex Steam Train, and he got into some pretty heavy stuff. Dylan has not had the easiest run, and I’m glad that Andi was nice and understanding about it.
And the group date. Boys will be boys. And boys will be mad when you loose a basketball game. 11 guys of the playing basketball against each other. The losing team had to leave the date. Who didn’t see that ending badly? I did.
And shocking, the losing team was sad. But, at least Andi had a good time – because they focused way too much on what happened to the losing team, than to the dates she did have.
The last one-on-one date went to Marcus. They rappelled down the side of Mohegan Sun, had dinner at Griswold Inn then a “private” concert with Jon Pardi. I like that Marcus talked Andi into doing the date.
Then, we went onto the cocktail party -ish. Andi and Eric had a falling out, because Eric decided to call Andi out on being fake. There are times she seems fake (I’ve said it before, I’m sure I’ll say it again), and he called her out on it. So she sent him home.
Then – instead of going to the rest of the cocktail party, we cut to Chris Harrison. They wanted to have a ‘moment’ to remember Eric, and not talk about anything else that happened. Not to show who went home. Not to show how the rest of the guys reacted.
I liked Eric, and I am sad that he left the way he did, but we should have seen more of the fallout. We would have seen it with any other contestant, we should have with this.
Who went home: Tasos.
