Season 21, Episode 2: Points

An episode two cliffhanger, as I live and breathe! ABC, you keep us guessing, you saucy little minx. This episode saw Corinne revealing herself as a potential villain and Liz packing her bags to go home. We also saw Josephine go method during her faux break-up scene with Nick. Look out, Meryl Streep, our girl Josephine is young, hungry, and gunning for ya.

We’ve never had a points category for slapping before because it just doesn’t happen frequently enough on this show to warrant it. But maybe we need to reconsider that stance for next year. Slaps are like meteorites. They don’t come around often, but dammit, you’re happy to see ’em when they do.

Some women earned 0 points this episode, even though they weren’t sent home. Next week (as is the case with all episodes following cliffhangers), women will receive points for  each rose they receive; in other words, we’ll be counting both rose ceremonies.

Wildcard points went to our shotgun bride, Alexis, for being the first to be bleeped for swearing while she was on her back grunting out an infant. 10 points, and mazel on the baby. Oh, and while we’re at it, happy birthday to your sweater puppies. The card’s in the mail.

  1. Katya says:

    Liz definitely cried during the group date when she’s talking to the camera.

  2. Lamar says:

    Liz cried at least the entire episode.

  3. Ben says:

    Taylor’s total should say 30

  4. cristina says:

    i believe danielle m. gets 20 points for being selected for the one-on-one date, not 10.

  5. Mike says:

    Danielle m. Should get 10 more points for the one on one date.

  6. Melissa says:

    If I’m correct, Liz eyes were red-rimmed, but there were no actual tears, so that would mean no points.

  7. Dan says:

    Hi! I thought Brittany had kissed Nick as well? And also, Danielle M. should get 20 points for the one-on-one date, and Taylor should have 30 points total.

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Thanks, Dan! The second two have already been updated, and you’re right about Britt. I had it in my notes and somehow didn’t carry it over to the post.

  8. Danelle A Carr says:

    Wasn’t Liz technically selected for a group date? That would earn her points… No?

  9. Yellpwumbrellagirl3 says:

    Should Jaimi have received points for taking about a past relationship. Cause she mentioned her relationship with a woman? Or was it not in depth enough?

    • Melanie says:

      I think the rule is it has to be a past fiance or husband (or wife!) rather than boyfriend/girlfriend.

      • Sara says:

        Right, agree with Melanie. (Technically if it was past relationship, Liz would get ALL THE POINTS for bringing up Nick all night… although we’d have to debate if “relationship” includes one-night-stands.)

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Yes, it has to be a fiance or spouse!

  10. anjelicakenerly says:

    hey ladies,

    quick question.

    so when a girl gets eliminated (aka liz) do we count her points for that episode? or do they cancel out since she was eliminated?

    thanks, anjelica

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Hi there – yes, you still count them even if she was eliminated. She won’t be able to earn any more points during the season (except for the Women Tell All episode), but you get to count all points earned while she was there.

  11. nat says:

    Shouldn’t Liz get points for being accused of being there for the wrong reasons? It was definitely mentioned that she was there just to be on TV.

  12. Jonathan says:

    Christen received the group date rose during the second date(after Liz was eliminated) but never given the points.
