I JUST HAD A STARTLING REALIZATION

  1. Okay, so I'm catching up on the Bachelorette
  2. I missed the past two seasons, so I had decided not to care...
  3. But guys, I have MISSED the journey for LOVE.
  4. Anyway, so I just finished the first episode
  5. (NO SPOILERS)
  6. And I realized
  7. THEY PUT THEIR NAME ON THE ROSES
  8. Why has it taken me so long to figure that out?!?
  9. For years, my friend Diana & I have pondered the question of how the Bachelor/ette remembered all those names.
  10. Especially because there is always excessive drinking before the rose ceremonies (and all other times) and there's no way in the first few ceremonies they can remember all those names off the top of their heads.
  11. So we thought, earpieces?! Someone flashing cards off screen? HOW?!
  12. But of course, their names are on the roses
  13. IT'S SO SIMPLE.
  14. I know I should feel more embarrassed that it's taken me a decade to figure this out but I'm just so relieved to have solved this mystery.
  15. ROSES.
  16. Also... About half the men of color have been immediately kicked off, classic Bachelorette.
    Stupid. So stupid.
  17. Also, also, I'm excited that Chad, Daniel & Evan have all stayed because there is some ridiculous drama in store there somewhere.
    I mean, Chad is clearly the WORST which means I want him to stay as long as possible.
  18. Also, also, also, loved that so many of the guys knew who Jake was.
    It would seem we have more than one Bachelor Superfan present
  19. Also, also, also, also, "Hipster" as a career is on par with Kelly's "dog-lover" and I'm totally on board.
  20. AGAIN, NO SPOILERS.
  21. Let the journey for love continue!!
  22. And don't worry, I'll be caught up ASAP.
  23. 🌹🌹🌹
