It’s 1,000X more skillful than winning a March Madness bracket or Super Bowl bet. You should list this win on your resume.

As always, thanks for playing along with us this season! Take care in the off season: rest up, go on vacation, adopt a dog, etc. We’ll see you soon.

Points: Women Tell All 

The Tell All episodes usually bring me great joy — or at least great hilarity — but this crop of ladies had me like:
giphy.gif

At least for the first hour. Talk about a steaming load of manufactured drama. Emotional intelligence. The Great Nap Debate between Corinne and Taylor. Corinne’s Oprah moment, when she gave everyone in the audience a thimble of cheese pasta (it’s called macaroni and cheese, numb nuts).

Then Kristina entered from stage right and flipped this bitch on its head in her understated, wiser-than-her-years way. Kristina, you’re too pure for this world and entirely too good for this show. PLEASE write a memoir.

Season 21, Episode 8: Points

Hometowns!

In Hoxie, Arkansas, Raven and Nick ride ATVs, wrestle in mud and gator piss, and then hike to the top of a grain silo, where her brother fake-arrests them.

In Houston, Rachel’s family was completely adorable…but the date felt pointless because we know she’s the next Bachelorette. Why did ABC release that info so soon?

In Miami, Corinne and Nick created a Clueless montage in Miami’s “most exclusive mall,” before retreating to Corinne’s family’s high-rise apartment, where they ate olives and drank wine out of what can only be described as individual punch bowls.

In Montreal, we met 97 of Vanessa’s closest friends and family (but nary a statement necklace in sight…).

Wildcard points: 15 points to any lady with a family member wearing a statement necklace. Corinne’s dad was rocking a sweet gold chain with a few chest pubes poking out, but a statement necklace it was not.

Introducing Season 21’s Mid-Season Draft

75249863.jpg

Just kidding, betches, it’s here!

Are you struggling in your league? Are you watching your rightful victory slip away week by week, causing you to drown your sorrows in copious amounts of wine? Are you being teased mercilessly by your coworkers, friends, and family every Monday evening?

It’s time to right your ship. WELCOME …. to the mid-season draft! Elaine Mamba-ing.gif

The Rules:

– If your team is NOT fully intact (i.e., you no longer have all of the contestants you originally drafted):
  • You can draft exactly one more lady to your roster.

– If your team IS fully intact:

  • You get a bonus of 50 points
  • OR you can swap out one of your existing contestants for another lady

When To Draft:

– You should complete the mid-season draft BEFORE the start of Episode 6 on Monday. Email your league commissioner with your chosen contestant.

Points:

– If you add one lady to your roster, you’ll receive points for your new team for the ENTIRETY of Episode 6.
– If your team is intact and you decide to swap out one of your existing contestants, you’ll only receive points for your NEW team during Episode 6. For example, say you decide to get rid of Josephine and add Raven. If Josephine gets a rose during Episode 6, kisses the Bachelor, etc., she is no longer on your team and you no longer get points for her actions. Capisce?

Season 21, Episode 5: Points

Wildcard points: 20 puntos to the first lady to tattle about the house drama to Nick. Those immediately went to Corinne who also scooped up “not here for the right reasons” — and that was the first time in YEARS we’ve awarded it.

Also: no hot tub points for the quartet of ladies hanging out in their hotel’s jetted tub, without water and with their street clothes on. That’s not hot tubbing, that’s sitting on furniture. While we’re at it:

Season 21, Episode 4: Points

The contestants traveled to exotic Waukesha, Wisconsin for the next set of dates, which involved shoveling cow dung, little girls booting soccer balls at Nick’s face, slick roller rink moves that would’ve captivated 8-year-old me, and a completely staged interaction between Nick and an ex while strolling Main Street USA.

Also, apparently, rose ceremonies now occur at the top of every hour. Can we call it a cliffhanger if it happens every. single. week?

Wildcard points: 10 big boys to any lady to read a date card aloud. Those went to the sisters Danielle.
