Season 12, Episode 2: Points

If there’s any takeaway from last night’s episode, it’s that I’m not using my luggage to its full potential. Overall, we saw Chad double-down on his Chadness: eating deli meat by the fistful, threatening other men’s teeth, and generally spitting some uncomfortable truths about the actual length of time generally required before you can fall in love with a person. Like all good #Bachelor and #Bachelorette villains, Chad has gone off-script, and we’re HERE for it.

A couple of caveats before we dig into points:

  • On the second group date, we awarded dancing points for gentlemen partaking in the so-called “touchdown dance.”
  • However, we didn’t award any proposal points. Technically, yes, several of the contestants “proposed” but that category is worth 85 points a pop — we intended the category to be reserved for the last remaining contestants. So no points awarded there.
  • During the SECOND time they broke into song about JoJo, it was super hard to catch the entire group. There were two guys wearing hats who were hard to make out. I’m pretty sure one was Robby (I gave him the points), but the other one had his back entirely to the camera and I couldn’t tell who he was. If you have additional evidence that will help us identify this mystery singer, please share and we’ll update accordingly.

The wildcard points category of the night (announced on Twitter) was 20 points to the first man called at the rose ceremony. Alex scooped those up.

    I think Chad used the phrase “steal her away” when interrupting someone’s time (not the first time with Alex, but the second time when he interrupted Evan)

  2. Lola says:

    Same, Chad definitely used the phrase steal her away — I wrote it down!

  3. Mel says:

    Christian invited Jojo to hot tub with him (post credits)

  4. Colleen says:

    Morning! As league Commish, I have one favor… Can you list Daniel before Derek on the points? I keep messing up the points because they are listed alphabetically on the spreadsheet! Thanks! Our league loves your blog and following you on Twitter!

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Hahaha, I have no idea how that happened but yes, I definitely can. Sorry about that. #AlphabetizingIssues

  5. Karen Togel says:

    With the singing in episode 2, I thought it only counted if they sing TO the bachelorette… just to get clarification. Also, I’d love to suggest wildcard points for reading aloud the date card! :)

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Love those wildcard points. Definitely gonna do that one soon!

      As for the singing to the Bachelorette, we debated back and forth — we figured because it was a song about JoJo, and seemingly to JoJo even though she wasn’t there, we’d count it!

  6. Chelsea says:

    Do we add each week’s points together?

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Yep, add up your players’ points each week and keep it rolling in the spreadsheet. It’s a running tally!

  7. Kelly Morse says:

    Mentioning a deceased loved one is 10 points, not 5 points.

    When the group of guys is practicing their song by the pool… I think? the yellow trunks and sunglasses guy is Derek. Could he be the “mystery singer?”

    • Karen Togel says:

      In fact, it seems like the 10 guys left at the house were all in on the song – EXCEPT for our “hero” Chad! lol!

      • Karen Togel says:

        And as Robby and Evan were both on the first group date, I don’t think it is possible that they were in on the group singing… #reallytryingtofigureoutmysterysinger lol

  9. Karen Togel says:

    Just wondering if James T’s win on the second group date should count for him as winning extra time? I am new to this league, so I am still just trying to understand what counts and what doesn’t. Thank you for bearing with me! :)

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Hi Karen! No, it does not count as he did not win any special alone time that the other men did not get. No worries :)

  10. Danielle says:

    So it appears James T gives JoJo he paper that his poem was written on after he reads it to her. Sure looks like a gift to me.

  11. Kristen says:

    Shouldn’t Chad get double points for interrupting twice???

  12. Mommyspice says:

    No points at all for Nick S?

  13. Kat says:

    Nick S?

  14. Danielle says:

    So the handwritten poem read and given to JoJo by James T is not a gift then? I just wanted to clarify. Thanks!
