Bachelorette 11 – Week Six

Continuing from last week, we see Ian’s exit after an insulting conversation with Kaitlyn. I couldn’t believe how full of himself Ian was. What a tool. #ByeFelicia

Nick made a smart move by going to comfort Kaitlyn while the rest of the guys just sat their. Hindsight is 20/20 and Nick has certainly learned a few things on his second time around. Their chemistry is undeniable, I’ve watched this show for a long time and I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an obvious connection before.

At the rose ceremony Justin and Josh were sent home. I felt a little bad for Josh since his hair got butchered and then he got the boot. Hopefully the first thing he does upon returning home is get a haircut. The guys find out that they are traveling to Dublin, Ireland for the next week and everyone is super excited to get out of the country.

On her ITM Kaitlyn couldn’t be more excited to fall in love in Ireland. For the interview she wore an IRO Biker Jacket ($941.50) and the Brooklyn Designs Aqua Chalcedony Ring. This Textured Knit Moto Jacket from Express ($98) is similar:

IRO biker jacket

First up is the one-on-one date and Kaitlyn chooses Nick, which makes Shawn insane. Kaitlyn and Nick are like two freight trains on a collision course…nobody can come between them at this point. Like I said earlier, their chemistry is undeniable which makes all the other guys uncomfortable. Kaitlyn wore the Blaine Pullover from One Grey Day ($184) and GOLDSIGN Lure Skinny Jeans ($228). This Pullover Sweater with Bar Back ($34) is similar:

One grey day

Kaitlyn is wearing the Robyn Rhodes Claire Oval Silver Druzy Pendant ($54):

Whew! Someone fan off my laptop, because this date with Kaitlyn and Nick is HOTT! These two can’t keep their hands off of each other and I don’t blame them. Nick is coming across really sweet and if I was her I would probably be giving him a rose too. You don’t find that kind of connection everyday. Kaitlyn wore a Knit Turtleneck Dress from Barney’s ($750) and a really cute horn ring from The Woods. To recreate her look I found a Banana Republic Black TurtleNeck Dress ($98) and this House of Harlow Horn Ankolie Ring ($48):


For the group date the guys go to a very creepy Irish wake for Kaitlyn. Seeing her in the casket is just creepy. Everyone makes the best of it and has fun. Kaitlyn looks good in a sold out Jean Paul Gaultier Tattoo Lace Dress. This Adrianna Papell Long Sleeve Lace Sheath Dress ($158) is similar:

On the evening portion of the group date Kaitlyn gets some one-on-one time with Ben Z. who had a hard time at the wake. She wore the sold out ALC Mike Tiered Sleeveless Top and the sold out Joseph Zip Pocket Leggings. This Bisou Bisou Sleeveless Tiered Blouse ($12.99) and BB Dakota Judy Faux Leather Legging ($24.99) are similar:

ALC Mike Tiered Top

Her necklaces are Robyn Rhodes Jeremy ($98) worn in the vertical position and Brooklyn Designs Easton:

Shawn is having a hard time on this group date and pretty much loses it when Kaitlyn gives Jared the rose and takes him to a private concert with the Cranberries. Shawn reveals that Kaitlyn told him that he was the one in San Antonio and he thinks she is ruining what they have by not picking him for everything…does he not realize that he signed up for The Bachelorette? He is really making this difficult for her. On top of this she is terrified that Shawn knows that she slept with Nick, which I don’t think he does at this point. Kaitlyn is distraught that she has ruined everything in her ITM. Kaitlyn wore the Kiki Designs Angel Wings Ring ($128):

What did you think about Kaitlyn sleeping with Nick before the fantasy suite and Shawn losing his mind? Lots of craziness this week and I definitely wouldn’t want to be in Kaitlyn’s position. She is definitely torn between these two guys.

Bachelorette 11 – Week Five

We pick up where we left off, with Nick showing up and meeting the guys a.k.a. firing squad. I think he did a pretty good job of explaining himself and his intentions. The guys weren’t happy that he was there and really didn’t want to hear anything he had to say. As they head out for the cocktail party at Citi Field most of the guys are second guessing their relationships with Kaitlyn. This was especially true of Shawn who started calling Nick “the other guy” and told Kaitlyn that he thought she was smarter than that.

I have said this every season, you have to focus on your own relationship instead of the relationships she has with the other guys. If you only get three minutes with her, why would you waste it talking about someone else.

Kaitlyn wore the Parker Sequin Aubrey Dress ($278) at the cocktail party. This Adrianna Papell Short Beaded Dress ($160) is similar:


She ended up giving Nick the rose and letting Ryan, Jonathan and some other guy with no airtime go. She then announces that they are headed off to sunny San Antonio!

As they intro San Antonio, Kaitlyn walks around as the guys share their thoughts about Nick a.k.a. “The Other Guy.” Kaitlyn wears a sold out plaid shirt from Express. This Rails Shirt from Bloomingdale’s ($138) is similar:

express plaid

Ben H. gets the first one-on-one date and he and Kaitlyn enter a two-stepping competition. Kaitlyn wore a Bella Dahl Basic Split Back Button Down Shirt ($145), Cavender’s by Old Gringo Women’s Kilauea Red Snip Toe Western Boots ($169.99) and her Michael Kors Runway Chronograph Watch ($250):

Bella Dahl

On the evening portion of the date, Kaitlyn wore a Crystal Pendant from The Woods ($1300). This Quartz Pendant from Etsy ($26) is similar:

Crystal pendant

Ben is able to open up on their date and Kaitlyn gives him the rose saving him for this week.

Next up is the group date where the guys had to write and perform a Mariachi song for Kaitlyn. Some of them really hit it out of the park, especially Nick who obviously learned from his past group date experiences by just embracing the silliness. Kaitlyn wore a sold out Alexa Chung Pixie Dress with Dan Post Women’s Santa Rosa Western Boot ($119.99). This 7 For All Mankind Trucker Dress ($298) is similar:

Alexa Chung

In her ITM Kaitlyn wore the sold out Parker James top. This Maurice’s Perfect Blouse in mint ($29) is similar:

Parker James

On the evening portion of the group date, Kaitlyn wore a sold out fringe skirt from Intermix. I found a similar Feel the Fringe Skirt ($60):


Josh pulls her away for some one-on-one time and in order to demonstrate his trust he asks her to cut his hair. Well this is the exact reason I’m not allowed to cut my husband’s hair – she totally butchered it and now Josh looks ridiculous! You do get a close up of her Gold & Gray Pyrite & Diamond Arrowhead Pendant ($690). This Pave Diamond Agate Arrowhead from Beadspoint ($99) is similar:

Agate pendant

Josh pretty much crashed and burned and led to Kaitlyn giving the group date rose to Nick to show the guys that she was serious about him. This didn’t sit well with Shawn who was next for a one-on-one date. Kaitlyn wore the Aritzia Izabel Romper ($32.50). This Sleeveless Knit Romper from Stem ($58) is similar:

Aritzia Romper

Kaitlyn and Shawn start the date off by kayaking and you get a close up of Kaitlyn’s Robyn Rhodes Franco ring ($55):

Robyn rhodes franco

They kayak down the San Antonio riverwalk and have a nice date followed by Shawn sharing his doubts about “the other guy” again. Kaitlyn wore the Vitamin A Karlie Beaded Bandeau ($95) and Vitamin A Tamarindo Bottom ($65):

Vitamin A

Shawn opens up to Kaitlyn about his feelings and his previous car accident. You can see Kaitlyn’s Porter Lyons Backbone Cuff ($375). This Yochi Lion Head Cuff ($68) is similar:

backbone cuff

Shawn scored the rose and both he and Kaitlyn admitted that they were falling in love…sort of a no-no for her to admit that before the final rose…

Onto the cocktail party, we see that Ian wants to go home because he thinks he is too good for Kaitlyn and the rest of us pretty much think he’s a big tool. Kaitlyn looks stunning in a backless Randi Rahm dress. This Pamella Roland Crepe Draped-Back Gown ($1060) is similar:

Randi Rahm backless

The episode ends with Ian telling Kaitlyn that he thinks she is a surface level person and that he is too good for her. If I were Kaitlyn I would of told him to get the f*** out, but that’s just me. I definitely wouldn’t sit there and listen to that. We’ll see what she ends up telling him next week…To Be Continued…

This week’s deleted scene shows Joshua and Joe struggling with their Mariachi songs:

Bachelorette 11 – Week Four

This week, we pick up where we left off with the Clint standoff. She tries to confront him and then decides to send him home. She definitely made the right decision, he was a total tool. What was really weird was J.J. calling him out to apologize. The whole situation was so odd, I’m not sure what was going on there. Kaitlyn then decides not to have a rose ceremony because she can’t make a decision at the moment.

The guys pack up and head to New York and they are excited to start the next chapter in this crazy journey with Kaitlyn. The first date is a group date with Doug E. Fresh where the guys participate in a rap battle.


The date gets upstaged when Kaitlyn meets Nick Viall who was strategically planted in the audience. You see, Kaitlyn and Nick had been flirting via social media, text, Snapchat and you name it prior to her starting the show. From her reaction she definitely has the hots for Nick and doesn’t want to leave him in New York. She mentions it to the men on her evening date and none of them have a great response, but that doesn’t stop Kaitlyn. In one scene she feels sick to her stomach telling the guys that Nick is joining the group and in the other scene she can’t wait to make out with him. I think it’s pretty obvious as to what decision she will make. Kaitlyn wears a sold out Phillip Lim Short Dolman-Sleeved Abstract Sweater. I thought this Alfani Dolman-Sleeve Chevron Sweater ($54.99) was a good alternative:

Phillip Lim

Kaitlyn is still feigning confusion so she asks Nick to meet her after her hair appointment. During the phone call she wore a Current/Elliott Slim Boy Button Down Cotton Top ($103). This Treasure & Bond Cotton Plaid Shirt ($78) is similar:


Kaitlyn decides to pay a visit to our old friend crazy Ashley S. who is apparently a hairdresser. In a twist she actually gives Kaitlyn some good advice which is promptly ignored by Kaitlyn. Kaitlyn wore a Glamorous Olivia Pullover ($44):

Kaitlyn heads out to meet Nick and happily tells him that he can move in the next day. She wore a Free People Hooded Vegan Moto Jacket ($168) and the Betsey Johnson Buffalo Check Lace Infinity Scarf ($16):

It is obvious Kaitlyn and Nick have chemistry…they can’t keep their hands off each other. It gives you a good opportunity to check out Kaitlyn’s Chic Love Triangle Ring from Kiki Designs ($120):

Kaitlyn has to hurry off to her one-on-one date with Jared, but she can’t stop thinking about Nick the whole time. She wears a stunning sheer lace dress with a plunging neckline to The Met for a romantic dinner date. She wore the Galia Lahav Comet dress from the Moonstruck Collection. It looks like you can get it wholesale here for $176.14, but I’m not sure of the quality of that site.

galia lahav

Her date with Jared was very romantic and he scored a rose at the end. Now if only he would shave that weird facial hair. Next up is a group date and we see Kaitlyn wearing a Ribbed High-Low Open Cardigan from Banana Republic ($44.99). This Neiman Marcus Ruffle-Front Ribbed Cardigan ($42.50) is similar:

Banana republic

But first, Kaitlyn needs to tell the guys that Nick is going to move into the house that evening. It doesn’t go over very well, but at least we get a close up of her Peggy Li Swiss Blue Point Necklace ($79):

Peggy Li

On the group date, Kaitlyn and the guys try out for Aladdin on Broadway. I really loved watching this date, as a former theater gal myself it looked like a ton of fun! Chris a.k.a. Cupcake got the one-on-one time for the is date and got to have a guest appearance with Kaitlyn in the live show. Afterwards they got to see the New Year’s Eve ball which was pretty cool. Cupcake gets the rose and lives on for another week.

Back at the house, the guys are anxiously awaiting Nick’s arrival and then the episode ends in another cliffhanger…dun, dun, dun…..until next week.

Bachelorette 11 – Week Three

We pick up right where we left off last week with Kupah’s dramatic exit. He finally leaves and the rose ceremony can begin. Daniel and Cory we barely knew you…

The group date this week was sumo wrestling with traditional Japanese sumo wrestlers. On the date Kaitlyn wore High Waist Skinny Jeans from Hudson Jeans ($155) and the Lucy ring from KV Bijou ($95):

hudson jeans

Tony caused a scene during the sumo wrestling part of the date and then decided to leave before the afterparty. The guys seemed to like Kaitlyn’s leather pants during this date. She wore the Wilfred Free Daria Legging ($135) and the Peterbell heel from Aldo ($90):


Kaitlyn gave Shawn the rose, much to the annoyance of Clint who decided that he wasn’t going to talk to her unless she approached him. Somebody’s pouting…

Ben Z. gets the next one-on-one date with Kaitlyn where they have to brave some creepy obstacles to get out of an Escape Room. Ben definitely earned his rose by sticking his hand in that disgusting toilet. Afterwards they get some alone time in the hot tub and Kaitlyn wears The Flirt Bandeau from Victoria’s Secret ($38.50). Not surprisingly, Ben receives the rose:

Flirt bandeau

On the next group date, Kaitlyn takes the boys to school to have them teach sex ed. I thought this was totally inappropriate even if the kids were actors…sort of weird. Kaitlyn wore a Sanctuary Village Shirtdress ($129):

Sanctuary shirt dress

Ben H. keeps it cleaner than most of the guys and tries to tie in a romantic angle which wins him the rose from Kaitlyn.

At the cocktail party this week, Kaitlyn wore the MacDuggal Cassandra Stone Dress – Style 65024A ($478):
macduggal cassandra stone

I didn’t really get the whole Clint drama, it seemed producer contrived to me. In any case it was a reason to give us a cliffhanger with no rose ceremony. Who will go home next week? I’m guessing Clint…

What did you think of this week’s episode?

In deleted scenes this week we see Clint and JJ’s bromance developing.

In this scene Shawn gives Kaitlyn his favorite t-shirt…a total boyfriend move.

In this final scene, Ben H. offers his version of sex ed which is apparently not suitable for television…

Bachelorette 11 – Week Two

The two bachelorette format made week two a little interesting. First of all, Kaitlyn gets to continue her journey knowing that some guys didn’t pick her, but she doesn’t know who. Secondly, Britt is upset about leaving, but she gets a consolation prize in Brady. Who knows where it will go…

Kaitlyn is still thrilled to be the Bachelorette and sits down with Chris Harrison to get this party started. She wears the Glamorous Nicole Layered Dress ($54) and you can sort of get a peek at her Michael Kors Large Runway Chronograph Bracelet Watch ($275):


We kick it off with the first group date card “in the ring” with Kaitlyn and Laila Ali…sort of cool to get boxing tips from Laila. The guys have to spar on this date and it gets a little crazy and some of the guys (Jared) get hurt, yikes!


I personally would have hated this date as I sort of watched it with my hand over my eyes. I think it was supposed to be fun, but got way too serious by the end. On the evening portion of the date, Kaitlyn wore a sexy Mi Amore Jumpsuit by Nookie ($196.20):


You can also see Kaitlyn’s X Ring from Samira 13 Jewelry. This Criss Cross Ring from Alex Mika ($106) is similar:

Samira 13

Did anyone else think it was sort of odd that Ben Z., the guy that knocked Jared out ended up getting the group date rose? I guess it wasn’t that odd, since he opened up to Kaitlyn about losing his mom and she seemed to think he was a hunk. I’m not sure if Kaitlyn missed the part of the Bachelorette handbook that told her she is supposed to give the rose to the guy that got the concussion. He did get a sexy kiss so all’s not lost in Jared’s world.

Next up, Kaitlyn took Clint on the first one-on-one date as the Bachelorette. She picked him up and took him to a fun date where they got to do an underwater photo shoot. On the way there, Kaitlyn wore this Barcelona Cami from Express ($39.90):


The photo shoot turned out pretty cool and Clint and Kaitlyn really hit it off culminating in a romantic evening date. I hated her outfit on the night portion of the date so I’m just going to skip it and pretend like it didn’t happen. Clint on the other hand did well and received a rose.

Next up is the comedy stand up date with the one and only Amy Schumer. This date was right up Kaitlyn’s alley and a few of the guys did pretty well. Kaitlyn wore a sold out A.L.C. Two-Tone Asymmetric-Layer Emmy Top. I found this similar Allison Collection NY Silk Dreamer Tank ($81):

ALCAt the afterparty, Kaitlyn has a few touching moments with the guys and ultimately gives JJ the rose for opening up about his daughter. Kaitlyn wore a Randi Rahm Tiger Sequin Mini Dress (not available online). I found this similar Leopard Print Sequin Bodycon Clubwear Dress ($45.66):

randi rahm

There was a lot of drama at the cocktail party this week, culminating in Kaitlyn giving Kupah the boot. But Kupah wouldn’t leave quietly and the producers decided to leave us with a cliffhanger holding the rose ceremony for next week. Kaitlyn wore a Mac Duggal Cassandra Stone Style Dress ($478):

cassandra stone

We have a few deleted scenes this week, the first is with Amy Schumer leaving JJ hanging instead of helping him with his routine.

The second is Kaitlyn taking the stage during her comedy club date where she takes a few pot shots at her men.

At the end of the episode, we see that Brady and Britt are still dating and Brady officially asks Britt to be his girlfriend. Do you think these crazy kids can make it work?

Bachelorette 11 – Week One

I’m going to change up my format this season and instead of doing a detailed recap I am just going to share my thoughts on the episode.

I thought the two bachelorettes format was interesting, but I didn’t really like it. I think it set a weird tone for the guys and I’m interested to see how it affects the season. Going into the season, I was rooting for Kaitlyn to be the bachelorette so I’m glad she was selected. Having two women greeting the men as they arrived was really awkward – their was obvious tension between the girls and the guys didn’t know who to approach first. If the show ever does this type of format again I think they should rethink the approach. Britt definitely won in the first impression department but Kaitlyn seemed to hit her stride during the cocktail party.


The other fun fact that I learned was that Part 1 and Part 2 were shot over two nights and you can see in some of the shots that Kaitlyn has different jewelry on.

kaitlyn and britt

So let’s get to the fashion! I thought both girls looked fantastic. I wasn’t a big fan of Britt’s dress, I think she could have done something more elegant. I did like the white color on her combined with her makeup.

Britt’s dress was made by Cassandra Stone for Mac Duggal ($428):


I thought Kaitlyn’s dress was elegant and perfect for the evening, plus I love Badgley Mischka! I wasn’t a big fan of her hair though. Kaitlyn’s Badgley Mischka Halter-Neck Sequined Gown was $528:

badgley mischka

I really loved Joshua’s steel rose – that was a cool, fun introduction gift. I also liked the cool rose boxes that they used during the voting process.

So as you know by know, Brady left to try his luck with Britt. I can respect that and think that it was great for him to give it a shot. At least Britt didn’t have to go home empty-handed.

Another fun fact is that Ryan is actually Nikki Ferrell’s ex-boyfriend. Nikki was the winner from Juan Pablo’s season in case you forgot. Remember that this was filmed over two nights so he probably got drunk on both nights…sort of crazy.

We have one deleted scene this week, with Britt and Chris where they split a cupcake and talk about charity work.

What did you think of the two Bachelorettes format?

I enjoy reading Bachelorette spoilers and if you are interested in finding out what happens in advance you can check out Reality Steve for more information. He also shares lots of Bachelor Nation news.
