Back at the house:

  • The guys are being introduced to their first tabloid…and it’s going swimmingly
  • So JoJo’s ex’s name is Chad?  The name Chad is very important this season

Back to the date:

  • JoJo finally explains to us why she’s been skeptical of Jordan since the beginning….that information would’ve made more sense 2 episodes ago JoJo!!!!

  • If he really didn’t cheat, than the being obsessed with his football career thing makes total sense

After the date:

  • So now the producers are showing JoJo the tabloids
  • JoJo “Why are you showing me this?”….because these producers are puppet master life ruiners!

At the spa:

  • What the hell is going on?

Episode Thoughts:

So do we have a new contender in the mix?  I think so.  This episode might have been the beginning of Robby becoming a serious threat this season.  There doesn’t seem to be any flaws or red flags with him, and his date went really well with JoJo.  Granted, saying “I love you” this early is crazy, even for this show, but JoJo seemed to love it.

So we finally learned why JoJo kept giving Jordan crap like “well I just don’t know about you” or “I like you but……”, and I’m still not sold.  JoJo likes Jordan a lot and I think she really was just being ultra careful because she probably feels the most for him.  As for the guys?  These dudes are plain and simple jealous of Jordan.  The guy looks like a model, used to be a pro football player, is brother’s with Aaron flippin’ Rodgers.  These guys secretly hate him, and it’s easy to see why.  But Jordan being there for the wrong reasons?  I’ve seen nothing to back that claim.

What I find odd about Jordan is that in this episode and the preview for future episodes, guys continue to say he’s not here for the right reasons.  But as an audience I can say with confidence that not one time has he come across as being an asshole or here for the wrong reasons, which means either the jealousy thing is in play or the show isn’t showing us that side of him.  Why wouldn’t they you ask?  Because I think Jordan is one of the final 2.

Can we talk about Alex now?  That guy is such a tool, and might be the biggest of the season….even bigger than the CHAD!  Chad might have been awful, but I’ll give him this, the man was funny as hell.  Alex is boring, and his little man complex is obvious and childish.  It’s only a matter of time though, JoJo wants no part of him.

My Top 3 for JoJo:

Jordan

No need for an explanation other than I think he’s the real deal.

Wells

Wells, you need to do something, anything, and that does not include being the voice of reason for the rest of the guys.

Chase

Chase, you almost got bumped to second place until I saw the scene with you and Alex being bros against Derek.  I’m not mad Chase, I’m just disappointed.

 

Your Thoughts:

Is Jordan really there for the wrong reasons?
