Blogging the Bach 24.11 part 2-The Finale

Celsey and I are watching. If we’re lucky, Shawn will join us for a little commentary.

We pick up where we left off last night. All day long I have heard all kinds of speculation about what happens. I also read Reality Steve. By the time this is published, the show will be over. 

We see the live audience and Kelly is there. Is anyone else confused by this? She wasn’t invited to women tell all, but now she is there for After the Final Rose??? What is happening?

I thought there might have been a little more build up, but we jump pretty quickly to the proposal. Chris Harrison has the news we have been wondering about all season. He tells Peter than Hannah Ann might not be coming to the proposal. He almost passes out and one minute later Hannah Ann is on her way. Supposedly they both love each other. (I am still not convinced). Peter proposes. Hannah Ann is shocked but says yes. (I am still not convinced). He probably shouldn’t have proposed, and she probably shouldn’t have said yes.

Peter goes home to California to tell his family. I have so many things to say about his mom-most of which I don’t really know if I should say on the internet. Her face said everything and more. All she and the rest of the family want to know is if he chose Hannah Ann or not. If not, he should run right out the door. Since he did pick Hannah Ann, Barb freaks the freak out. He FaceTimes Hannah Ann, and it was kind of awkward. 

The next thing we see Hannah Ann comes to give Peter a major piece of her mind over and over. I was pretty impressed the first time she called him out, but the more and more she beat the dead horse the more I was ready for her to be done. She gives the ring back, is very mad at Peter, does not let him talk, and leaves. Again. He shouldn’t have proposed, and she shouldn’t have said yes. I never believed it could or would work out for them, and I am not surprised at all that it didn’t last. She is still furious with him at ATFR, and he feels terrible. It was pretty awkward especially as Barb cheered wildly for her.

Peter still has feelings for Madison. Chris Harrison goes to Auburn to update Madison without Peter knowing. She regrets her decision to leave and still loves Peter. She wants to give it another chance so she goes to LA. She surprises Peter. They talk, both admit they still love each other, and decide nothing. 

Chris Harrison shows Peter the video of his visit to Auburn, and Peter smiles for the first time all night. At this point we are reminded we still don’t know how the season will end. Barb rolls her eyes and has a look of hate on her face every time they show her. Madison comes out. They both admit they still love for each other. Peter says he wants to take it one day at a time. Madison doesn’t really say anything, but it seems like she is on the same page. We come back from commercial break, and they are sitting much closer together. 

I am so frustrated with Peter’s parents-especially Barb. I can definitely see why they are concerned, but when Peter asked them to trust him, and they still have  so much dislike for Madi, it just feels yucky. Even though they aren’t in full support of this, it is so embarrassing for Peter to be treated like that by his parents. I would be furious if my parents did that to me. Furthermore I have no idea why Barb had so much air time this season. I really hope something better happens for them now that the season is officially over.

Onto to Clare...

Blogging the Bach 24.11

Who’s watching: Celsey, Amanda, Krista, and Alicia 

Chris Harrison starts us out teasing us of all that is to come. Of all the different season endings we have had over the years, I can’t wait to see how this thing actually ends. 

Hannah Ann has the first date. She seems like she is trying really hard to be in love with Peter and she is trying really hard to be emotional. Peter’s dad calls her a remarkable young lady. Young lady is the perfect description. Peter says there is nothing holding him back with her, but he has the dilemma between the girls. 

Madison walks up like she’s ready to go meet the family. They have a chat about all of the things. For a few minutes, it seems like she is going to leave and not meet the family. She tells him that she was planning to tell him that she loves him the night she ended up leaving the date. Peter has the biggest smile on his face. They meet his family. It is pretty awkward. 
Peter’s mom basically tells him pick Hannah Ann or else... Peter tells his mom to stop being so emotional. She has a meltdown and tells him to bring Hannah Ann home because she is perfect. She also calls him Bud several times and we don’t love it.

Peter has his final date with Madi. It starts out pretty well. They take a helicopter to a secluded place all to themselves. She tells him it is time for her to surrender so that he can find love. He tries to convince her to stay, but she decides it is time to leave. They have too many differences.

His final date with Hannah Ann feels forced. She is so in love with him, and he can’t reciprocate. He appreciates her, and that is about it. The night part seems pretty sure. Peter tells us he is in love with her, but he doesn’t ever tell her that.

The show ends with Chris Harrison telling us once again that no one knows how this is going to end.

Honestly some of the best lines of the night came from Rem.
-I don’t like what you’re making (when he came in for dinner without even knowing what I was cooking)
-I got it myself (after taking an apple off the cutting bored)
-you have strawberries? (to Alicia as he grabbed all of the grapes out of Alicia’s bowl)
There were so many other good quotes. It’s a good thing he is so dang cute, but he’s such a turd.

What do you think is going to happen?

Blogging the Bach 24.10

Who’s watching: Krista left early, but all the rest of the girls are here.

We start out where we left off. Madison is no where to be found. Hannah and Victoria are standing waiting for the rose ceremony..and Madison. Hannah Ann gets the first rose. Madison gets the second (Peter offers her the rose. She says yes. He asks if she is sure. She says yes again and hugs him for a really long time), and Victoria is shocked. Peter tries to say goodbye to Victoria but she doesn’t want to hear it. She leaves without a tear.

We have to wait until next week to find out what the crap happens with this season. Apparently Peter doesn’t even know so next week should be interesting.

We’re about 10 minutes in on Women Tell All and so far there has been so much yelling. Chris Harrison lets them go at it and finally tells MyKenna she gets the last word. She tells Tammy she needs to be nice.

Kelsey and Victoria both come to the hot seat. There’s not a whole lot to say. They admitted their mistakes. Ashely I came out and gave Kelsey a gigantic bottle of champagne and bonds over all of their on screen tears.

Peter comes out, and it is pretty uneventful. Savannah asks Peter if he has any regrets and addresses the criticism that he rewarded the drama. He could have made better choices, but he doesn’t have regrets. It kind of seems like everyone had a PR lesson before the night started and everything has the perfect PC things to say.

The bloopers were funny-probably the best part of the show.

Rachel comes out and talks about online bullying. The things that people say are horrible. I can’t even understand why anyone would waste their time and energy to be so hateful. It is really disappointing and I think it’s good the show drew attention to it. I also appreciated that Alexa said we have to focus on all the love and positivity rather than the hate and negativity. 

And now we wait to see how this dang season ends...

Wear it Wednesday..Custom Jacket

I live in Utah. Winter lasts a long time in Utah. Jackets/coats are a necessary part of life here. I really like to buy jackets and coats, and I don't really like to wear them. My shoulders are broad and my arms are well..beefy. It is hard to find a jacket that fits well. I was so excited when The Jacket Maker reached out to me for a collaboration. They take your measurements and make a custom jacket based on your measurements.

The process is all very simple. You pick out your jacket, send in your measurements, wait a few weeks, and voila you have your custom jacket.
I did something wrong with my measurements initially and they were really easy to work with. I got this jacket in the mail pretty quickly after correcting my measurements. It was simple and now I have a jacket custom fit to me.

Check out the Jacket Maker if you're interested in your own jacket.

Blogging the Bach 24.9

We left the kids at home with the boys and went to dinner to celebrate Megan’s birthday. It was a fun new tradition, and I hope it continues. 
Who’s watching: Celsey and Shawn, Alicia and Adam (for a few minutes), Megan.

The night starts where we left off last time. Madi pulls Peter aside to tell him that she is saving herself for marriage. I’m all for that, but I am not sure why she waited until the final week to tell him. She does give him an ultimatum, but she makes it seem like she wants him to comply.

They fly to their final destination in Australia. In true bachelor drama form, all the girls are staying in the same place. They are surprised and so are we. Peter comes in and tells them the first date starts now.

Date #1-Hannah Ann
Their day date is jet skiing in the ocean. We all agree that jet skiing in the ocean isn’t as fun as it sounds. 
They get to the night portion. She is wearing a dress that seems pretty perfect for the fantasy suite. They say a lot of words but don’t say a whole lot. Hannah Ann emphasizes that she doesn’t want to know what happens with the other girls. She finally says she loves him so much and wants to be with him and go to the fantasy suite. 
She comes back to the house/hotel and it is definitely very awkward. WHHHYYYY are they all stuck in the same place???

Date #2-Victoria F
Peter wants to clear the air about the hometown time. He says he trusts her and wants to move forward. They go ahead with their date. Peter says he trusts her heart but their communication isn’t great. They talk and Victoria feels like they are on the same page. 
Meanwhile back at the house, Madi tells Hannah Ann she doesn’t know if she can move forward with Peter if he has sex with any of the others. (After Hannah Ann already had her overnight date).
Dinner=more bad conversation between Peter and Victoria. She doesn’t feel like she deserves him. He wants her to feel like she deserves love. The moment he/we have been waiting for all season-their fantasy suite. That seems like the most logical reason she is still there. Victoria says she is falling in love with her. Peter doesn’t respond with any words and just kisses her. They wake up in the morning and again she says she is in love with him. He responds again by kissing her. 
She comes back and it’s naturally pretty awkward.

Date #3-Madison
They are so excited to see each other. Peter seems most genuinely excited to see her. They climb to the tippy top of a very high building and she realizes in that moment that she is in love with him. He says that moment is the best he has felt. I guess he forgot how he felt the previous 2 days with the other girls. They have a pretty good day date. They get to the night portion and everything falls apart. Madi says she doesn’t know if this can continue if he has slept with other women. He beats around the bush a little and then says he has to be honest that he has been intimate with the other women. Madi doesn’t know how to handle it and she excuses herself to go out. She cries and cries and then Peter comes out and they talk. They both cry. He begs her not to leave. She walks away and ...

For once we really wish this show was two nights in one week.
He keeps saying this season ending is very unique. At this point, we just really want to know how it ends.

blogging the bach 24.8

Who’s watching: Celsey, Shawn (for a few minutes) on Wednesday. 
Confession: I have read basically everything there is to read. Of all the seasons, I am kind of mad there are no actual final spoilers for this season. I just want to know what happens, but I guess we will all have to wait.
After reading Sharlene’s blog from last week, I have some different thoughts about Kelley. I liked her all season. I didn’t love what we saw last week, but after reading the blog, I totally agree that Kelley was a victim of a bad edit. A lot of her sentences seemed spliced together, and that kind of makes me mad and a little sad that I believed it. It will be interesting to see what she has to say at Women Tell All.

I don’t have a whole lot to say about this episode. The hometown dates all seemed pretty short. Peter says he knows he has the right final four, and he also knows his wife is there. I am less convinced. None of these girls seem like marriage material or even engagement material. 

The most noteworthy thing about this episode is Peter’s ex-girlfriend. She shows up, tells Peter to be careful and that Victoria has broken up relationships. He confronts her, she gaslights him, they don’t meet her family, and she gets the rose-insert all the eye rolls. 

We are left with Victoria F (I am more confused about this than I have ever been in the history of this show), Hannah Ann, and Madison. They are leaving the country again and keeping all the girls together. This should be fun...

Christmas Day 2019

Christmas is always pretty low key for us since we don’t have family to go around and visit all day. Monica invited us over Christmas dinner with their family so we did have somewhere to go. 

Christmas Eve dinner. We usually keep it pretty casual. After dinner we drive around to see the lights. 

The kids got their Christmas pjs earlier this year. They did open their gifts from Ron and ReNae and got more pajamas. I got joggers and fuzzy socks for Chelsea and me and we already had matching shirts. We snapped a quick pic in the mirror and never took an actual photo. 

The kids were all happy with their gifts. 

We made a Nothing Bundt cakes copycat cake for dessert. It was pretty easy to make and turned out so cute. 

Dinner was delicious and it was nice to have somewhere to go. 

We played a few games with Monica and her family and played a lot of uno the rest of the time.

blogging the bach 24.7

Who’s watching: Celsey, Amanda, Krista, Megan, Parker and Shawn were here briefly but didn’t say a dang thing.

They leave Chili and go to Peru. Peter comes to the hotel and tells the girls he is really serious about all of this and wants them to be serious. If they’re not ready for this, he is not interested in that. 

Date #1-Madison
Peter obviously really likes Madison a lot. They explore the town and go on a boat and it’s a classic bachelor date. She gets the rose and Peter is going home to meet her family.

Date #2-Natasha
How is she still here after not getting any time with Peter this whole season. She finally gets a one-on-one. She thinks things are going really well and wants this to continue. Peter does not agree and sends her home.

Date #3-Kelsey
Crazy Kelsey stayed away on this date. She was relatively calm, tells Peter about her family, cries a little, and gets the rose. Peter is headed to Iowa.

Date #4-3 on 1-Kelley, Hannah Ann, Victoria 
Kelley talks a big talk. We hear more from her than we have heard the entire season. She has stayed out of the drama all season until now. She turns straight mean girl, and I’m sad about it. Victoria calls him out by saying he is in a mood every time they talk. He gets defensive, she cries, he pulls her aside and gives her the rose. Hannah Ann gets the other rose, and Kelley was completely surprised. I feel bad for her at the women tell all. Tonight was really embarrassing for her.

This episode was rough. It took me the whole time to actually write this post. This is the cringiest of all cringy episodes. I’m scared for what the rest of the season is like.

blogging the bach 24.6

Who’s watching: Celsey and Shawn

Two episodes in one week is kind of a lot. We had dinner, got the kids in bed, chatted for a bit, and now we have geared ourselves up emotionally for this.

They have moved to Santiago, Chile. Peter got his stitches out and is ready to move forward.

Date #1-Hannah Ann
They start out in the town square, dance, eat messy food, and make out. They talk to a couple that has been married for many many years. Peter is a little worried about her age and asks her about her readiness for all of this. He asks her some actual serious questions about love and relationships and goals for life. He doesn’t know if they can have a deep enough connection so he takes a little break. She goes out to find him, starts crying, and says she is starting to fall in love with him. So basically Peter needs to feel like the girl is an emotional mess in order to connect with them. It is very bizarre.

Date #2-Sydney, Natasha, Kelsey, Victoria P, Madison, Tammy, Kelley, MyKenna Luz, camera, accion 
MyKenna was sick about going on the group date. Peter has great memories of telenovelas (I had to watch my share of those in college and I can’t exactly say I have good memories). Of course they make Kelley be the grandma. Pedro kisses every girl on the set. MyKenna is happy, and Tammy is very serious about her role. 
The evening part is a little more serious. Victoria P wants to see where she stands with Peter. He tells her he doesn’t see her as his wife and sent her home. He wanted to talk more and walk her out and she completely shut down and did not want to be walked out. I have been waiting 30+ seasons for someone to say no. 
Peter re-writes a script for Madison and himself. We finally see a little more of Peter and Madison. They definitely really like each other.
And then the drama starts...
Madison gets the rose.

Date #3-Victoria F-I feel like we didn’t get a fair shot
Is anyone else confused why they are already have another one on one? Obviously things were a big awkward with Chase R ice, but that doesn’t seem like a good enough reason to have another one on one so soon.
They have a fun day. Peter says he really likes her and was really happy to have more time with her. She breaks down and says she is struggling. He had no idea she was having doubts (probably because he has been way too focused on the drama). We now have the opposite situation from the other Victoria. He is super into her, and she doesn’t seem to be super into him. She says maybe she isn’t cut out for this. She says she can’t give him an honest answer which is basically means no. All signs point to-she’s just not that into you. She comes back. He talks her into staying and gives her the rose. Her response of “of course” doesn’t seem genuine at all. 

Cocktail Party/Rose Ceremony
Date #4-Enough is Enough two on one before the cocktail party with MyKenna and Tammy
Both girls are especially contentious and ready to put an end to this themselves. Peter has finally decided to put a stop to the drama-it’s about freaking time for him to squash the drama. He talks to Tammy first and she says MyKenna isn’t there for the right reasons. MyKenna says she is. They fight it out a little more and Peter send Tammy home. Adios drama mama.
Hannah Ann, Madison, Victoria F have roses from dates
Kelsey, Natasha, Kelley get the roses.

All of a sudden we have gone to a ton of girls to only 6 girls. See you in paradise ladies!

 photo aubrey-sig_zps0ck6qpqn.png

blogging the bach 24.5

Who’s watching: Shawn and Celsey, Amanda, Megan-The kids were OUT OF CONTROL tonight, and we are all happy for a little peace and bachelor.

We start out with a recap of last week followed by a return to the cocktail party. Everyone is still mad at and about Alayah. Peter comes back and grabs her for a chat. Even though she has a rose, he sent her home. After sending Alayah home, he finally seems to realize that he needs to spend some time getting to know the girls. He talks to several, and I have hope for the season.

Rose ceremony 
Victoria F and Kelsey have roses from their one on one
Alayah had a rose and got sent home
Madison, Sydney, Natasha, Lexi, Hannah Ann, Shiann, Mykenna, Victoria P, Kelley, Tammy

They are finally getting out of the house, and hopefully that means we finally have less drama and more to actually see of the girls. Peter comes and tells the girls he got a major cut from tripping and cutting his head (after telling them he was attached by a puma)

Date #1-We finally have a date. Sydney. I was a little distracted during their date. Peter really likes her and tells her she is the best kisser. I am pretty bored with this date. They talk a little and then go to the hot tub. 

Date #2-group date Sheinn, Kelsey, Victoria F, Madison, Natasha, Victoria P, Lexi, Hannah Ann, MyKenna-Let’s capture our love today
Today’s date is surprise..a photo shoot. The person who wins gets a photo shoot with Peter on the cover of Cosmo. Victoria F takes the first initiative and kisses him during her photos. Hannah Ann follows and does the same. Victoria F wins and gets more photos and more kissing with Peter. 
Peter likes all the girls and tells them all he really likes them. So far the date is going pretty well. Everyone is having a decent time until Tammy tells Peter that Kelsey is emotionally unstable and drinks too much. The drama continues. Hannah Ann gets the group date rose.

Date #3-Kelley
Did she ever get a date card? Somehow we missed it. They have the date. I have really been looking forward to seeing a date with Peter and Kelley. This date wasn’t exactly what I have been waiting for. Peter questions her desire to be there and doesn’t know where this can go. She assures him things are changing and he gives her the rose. My thoughts on Kelley are this..They had the strongest connection in the beginnings so Peter didn’t give her a lot of attention. She didn’t want to have anything to do with the drama so she didn’t give him a lot of attention either. All of a sudden we are at week 5, and nothing more has developed with them. I’m a little sad, and I really hope things get better.

Kelsey is losing it again. She sneaks over to see Peter and he rewards her with a rose. She comes back to tell the girls and not surprising they aren’t thrilled.

Rose Ceremony
Sydney, Hannah Ann, Kelley, and Kelsey already have roses
The cocktail is cancelled and Peter comes out to give the roses. Tammy and then MyKenna need to talk to Peter first. There is SO MUCH DRAMA this season, and Peter is here for it. 
Victoria F, Madison, Natasha, Victoria P, MyKenna, Tammy get the roses.

beauty time Tuesday..new products

Ashley gave me this Olaplex set. So far I really like it. 

The winter FabFitFun box has some new fun things to try. I love getting the box. It’s like Christmas 4 times a year. 

I received these products from Influenster to test out. They are very lightweight and smooth. I try to take pretty decent care of my skin, and I’m always excited to try out new products.

Christmas Vacay 2019

I spent the Christmas holiday with Chelsea and her family. I found a great deal on a plane ticket, but the days and times weren’t necessarily ideal. With leaving town again at the first of the year I wanted a few days at home in between. That didn’t happen, but it all worked out. I got extra time with their family which is always fun. 

We went to see the lights at the Oakland temple which is something I have never done. It was so beautiful. 

After the lights we got ice cream for dessert. Parking was insane but we finally found a spot. We had a full table of adults and a full table of kids with 3 families of people. 

We made gingerbread houses. The kids all made their own and they did a pretty good job being creative and getting along with each other. 

We drive around and saw lights a few times. 

Christmas break was so nice. It was relaxing and fun.

beauty time Thursday..empties

It’s been a while since I did an empties post. I have slowly been using up some products and trying to use up what I have before buying more. 

I’m really trying to clean up my products and this everyone lotion has been a tray great option. It’s thinner than I’m used to but smells and works well. 
As much as I’m trying to clean things up, I’m still kind of stuck on bath and body works body cream. Twisted peppermint is one of my favorite scents. 
Dry shampoo is one of my favorite most used products and I have yet to find a clean option. Batiste is a favorite drug store brand but I know it doesn’t have the cleanest ingredients. 
Bare minerals lash domination and Clinique chubby lash are two great mascaras. 
Urban decay primer potion is a staple in my makeup bag. 

Urban decay setting spray gets a lot of great reviews. I haven’t found it to be super successful in keeping my makeup in place. 
Another batiste dry shampoo
Big sexy hair brand hairspray-another fave

blogging the bach 24.4

Who’s watching: Alicia and Adam for a few minutes, Amanda, Megan, Celsey, and Shawn 

We start out with the girls in the PJs. They are feeling a little bad about Peter and who knows what else. Chris Harrison comes in and tells them there won’t be a date today because Peter is out of town..and they’re going..to Cleveland, Ohio. The girls aren’t excited but once they get there they act like they are.

Date #1-Today our love soars to new heights Victoria F
The date starts and they fly over somewhere and end up on a rollercoaster. There are a lot of analogies about love and soaring to new heights. They go to a diner, talk about the future, and go outside for a concert-with Chase Rice who conveniently dated Victoria F. It is awkward, very awkward. She refuses to kiss Peter or even look up. She ends up chatting with Chase Rice and the awkwardness continues. She decided she needs to tell Peter, but she is scared how he is going to react. We have no idea why she is so nervous. She tells him, cries, and walks away. Peter is not freaked out about it at all. He acknowledges that it is weird but also laughs. They go back to the table, she gets the rose, and they dance and make out to a cello player.

Date #2-Let’s tackle love together 
They’re already talking about how the big group dates always have drama-not a good sign. We still aren’t sure why they are in Ohio, but maybe it is so they can have the whole stadium for themselves for a football game. The game ends in a tie so everyone gets to go to the night portion to spend more time with Peter. Victoria P steals Peter first and Sheinn is so upset. All of a sudden, Alayah walks back in, and the drama comes back again. Victoria swears she is not a liar although she is making no sense. Alayah did tell Victoria not to tell anyone that they are friends. They are both shady. I liked Victoria, but I am not liking this at all. Peter gives Alayah the group date arose even though she wasn’t even on the group date. The girls are less than thrilled. Most of the girls don’t even get to talk to Peter. The drama is so far running the season.

Date #3-Kelsey
This is the explore the town date. How much is there really to explore in Cleveland? Peter says Kelsey is no drama. Has he already forgotten about champagne gate?! She shares her story that her parents got divorced and her dad left the family for a new life and family in Mexico. Peter can tell she is a good person and has a good heart, and he really respects her. Her story is definitely sad, but she really has to try hard to cry. She gets the rose, and Peter really likes her.

Cocktail party
All of the girls are fired up at Peter. They are mad at Alayah and Peter for bringing her back and giving her the rose. Peter doesn’t see it, but every girl that talks to him is pretty upset with him. He feels like he is disappointing people all over, and basically that is what is happening. It ends with to be continued...

Windmill-this seems to have died down and we haven’t heard about it for the past 2 episodes
Pilot/flying-3 (I probably missed a few especially with Victoria F’s date)
Husband/Wife-4 (I definitely missed a bunch of these)
Tear Tally-5 (I am certain I missed some. There were a lot of tears)

blogging the bach 24.3

Who’s watching: Celsey, Shawn was here for a few minutes but left the room before we got started, Alicia, Amanda, and Megan

Date #1-one on one Victoria P
They are going to Peter’s hometown. They are start out shopping for cowboy boots and line dance in the store. Naturally they go to a concert. They both act like show is over and they have found their person. I may have picked her as my winner on my bracket. I can’t remember. Meanwhile, back at the house champagne gate continues. 
They go to the airplane hanger and Victoria shares her story. She is very emotional and Peter looks like he might cry too. She gets the rose and they both talk about how they might be the future for each other.

Date #2-I love surprises
Demi and her ladies come in the house and wake up the girls with a pillow fight. Most of the girls get lingerie and Savannah gets a muumuu to wear. They fight each other, and these girls aren’t messing around. Alayah wins the competition after sitting on Sydney. She takes one on one time with Peter first and talks about being a pilot’s wife. Sydney is upset about losing and is a grump the rest of the date. She tells Peter some of the girls are fake. Peter asks Kelley if this can work for her. He really likes her. Peter puts Sydney on the spot about being a tattle tale. She calls out Alayah, and it starts a fight while everyone else sits there in awkward silence. She gets the rose, and we all think that was so dumb.

Pool Party
MyKenna is excited for the chill vibe of the pool party. Is she crazy? There is no chill in that house. Peter tells the girls he isn’t feeling the best. He is starting to question things. Sydney tells him to talk to the others. Everyone else is pretty much validating what Sydney says. Alayah confronts Sydney. They have a little fight. She talks to Peter and he seems totally over her. He has time with Madison. He really likes her a lot. He asks Victoria P what she thinks about it all. They know each other from pageant land, and apparently Alayah asked Victoria not to say anything about them knowing each other. He talks to Alayah and kind of throws Victoria under the bus. I don’t love that he does that to the girls. This is at least the 3rd time he has done this. He is really upset and emotional and says he doesn’t know what to do. We don’t understand why he doesn’t just send her home right then. Instead he goes home.

Rose ceremony
Sydney, Victoria P, Victoria F-already have roses
Kelsey, Hannah Ann, Natasha, Lexi, MAdison, Shiann, Kelley, Kiarra, Tammy, Savannah, Deandra, MyKenna get roses
Chris H took away one of the roses and several people went home (more than we expected). Alayah is one of the girls. We aren’t sad to see her go, but it looks like she is coming back.

Word tally (I tried to pay attention, but I am pretty sure I missed a few tonight)
Windmill-hallelujah not mentioned even once
Pilot/flying-I forgot to count this, but it was brought up several times
Tear Tally-8
