Season 21, Episode 1: Points

We’re off to the races! Nick’s fourth attempt at nationally televised love is underway. And as always, we’re here to help you compete against your friends, family, and coworkers for all the glory, accolades, and bragging rights that come with being a BachFantasy Champion.

We post our Wildcard Points Category every Monday on Twitter, so be sure to follow us there. Wildcard points last night: 20 points were up for grabs to the first lady who arrived to the Bachelor mansion in something other than formalwear. Alexis won that handily, dressed as Left Shark from Katy Perry’s Super Bowl performance. Her dolphin call upset the shit out of my dog. He had to leave the room.

Season 20, Episode 9: Points

Loved that opening shot of Ben crawling up ancient ruins in flip-flops and cargo pants. (I saw Ben Higgins hiking in cargo shorts and flip-flops so I went out and bought cargo shorts and flip-flops.)

This episode was ja-maican me crazy for many reasons, not the least being that I just moved to Higgins’ town (chill, it’s Denver—not Warsaw, Indiana), and the show comes on at 9 p.m. here. What the what! Bach fans in Mountain Time Zone, how do you do it?!

Also, I like believe in Ben and Lauren. He is such a smitten kitten with her. I’ve never seen a Bachelor more infatuated with a contestant. It’s kinda refreshing.

Okay, let’s get into points.

Caila: 200 points STAT CORRECTION

  • Kissing the Bachelor on the lips (10 points)
  • Riding on a boat (10 points)
  • Saying “I’m falling for him” or “I’m in love with him” to Ben (20 points)
  • Accepting the Fantasy Suite invitation (75 points)
  • Saying “I love you” to Ben (30 points)
  • Crying on camera (25 points)
  • Having a body part blurred out (30 points)

JoJo: 170 points

  • Kissing the Bachelor on the lips (10 points)
  • Riding in a helicopter (10 points)
  • Saying “I’m falling for him” or “I’m in love with him” to the camera (20 points)
  • Saying “I love you” to the Bachelor (30 points)
  • Accepting the Fantasy Suite invitation (75 points)
  • Getting the rose to stay another week (25 points)

Lauren B.: 180 points

  • Saying “I’m falling for him” or “I’m in love with him” to the camera (20 points)
  • Kissing the Bachelor on the lips (10 points)
  • Riding on a boat (10 points)

Season 20, Episode 7: Points

The Bachelor heads to Ben’s all-American hometown in Warsaw, Indiana, where the contestants looked bored as they fly kites, ride a pontoon back and forth across a lake, drive 200 miles to see Wrigley Field, and then come back to serve McDonald’s to the townspeople in a (terribly) sponsored bit of content. Warsaw, Indiana: It’s Just a Small Town in Indiana, Despite How Hard “The Bachelor” Tried to Prove Otherwise.

We bid adieu to Emily and Becca, so the ladies making it to the Final Four (AKA Hometowns) are Amanda, JoJo, Caila, and Lauren B. We’ll award those points next week when Ben actually visits the hometowns.

FYI, wildcard points (20 of ’em) went to JoJo for being the first to mention Hometown Dates tonight.

    • Mentioning her kids (5 points)

Season 20, Episode 5: Recap

People in the Twitterverse are complaining that Ben, is bland but I think he is suffering from a major case of Being Aware That the Camera is Always On. Remember America, it could always be worse.

juan pablo with rose

The Bachgaggle descends on Mexico. They frolic thru Mexico City with the carefree innocence of people who don’t read the news and have never heard of El Chapo. These broads feel more excited about a hotel room with some queen size beds and a bidet than I’ve felt about anything in my life. And I’ve seen Beyonce thrice.

Amanda gets the first one-on-one. Ben sneaks into the hotel and wakes up the ladies at 3 a.m. Lauren H. is wearing a retainer that she not-so-subtly pulls out when the camera is pushed into her face. (I mean, good for her. Teeth shift as you age and braces are expensive. If Ben’s into frugality, maybe she’ll earn some marks.)

To be honest, I don’t like the mandatory “Sneak in and wake up the ladies early to catch them without makeup!” routine that the Bachelor always does. It feels very, “Let’s look under the hood of this Ferrari and see what we’re REALLY dealing with!”

And you’re kind of screwed either way, right? Either you wear full stage makeup and hair to bed and you look like a tryhard Disney princess, or you go to bed with a washed face like a normal person and Men’s Rights Activists (lollll) explode with glee on Twitter that “HA WE KNEW IT YOU’RE A NORMAL GIRL and women alwayz be trapping men this way!”

Regardless, Amanda is in full makeup. I saw LIPGLOSS. Either a producer tipped her off or she goes to bed camera-ready every night while on The Bachelor. It makes me feel sad.

They go up in a hot air balloon. Amanda talks about her deadbeat ex, who preferred to go out and party in SoCal rather than stay at home with his wife and two young daughters. Not excusing his behavior in any way (don’t have kids if you’re not prepared to be a dad), but he was probably 23 when this all went down. At 23, I could barely keep a houseplant alive let alone a marriage. This is a case of Too Much Too Soon.

The group date heads to a Spanish lesson and then onto a cooking class. “Who doesn’t like to eat food on dates?” asks Ben, to which I answer, “Every contestant on this show, but thanks for trying.”

Olivia is a pariah who does everything short of curb-stomping Jubilee to claim Ben as her cooking partner. She asserts to the camera that she loves Ben and that they have a secret love language all their own. Love is a two-way street and Olivia is hitchhiking all by herself along the side of Higgins Highway.

giphy.gif

The contestants pair off and cook a gourmet meal that will be judged by this cute pair of Mexican chefs who sass the contestants a bit. (“This looks like dog food,” said the female chef, in reference to Olivia and Ben’s creation.) The female chef has the most personality of anyone on this show, and now I want her to be the next Bachelorette.

JoJo prepared a taco dish AND a lengthy monologue positively riddled with innuendo. “My taco is amazing. Ben already tasted my taco and he loved it,” she says with a completely straight face.

Jubilee is in a funk the entire date, which is often the kiss of death. Never brood on the Bach. Ya gotta be on. You have 6.5 days a week to be “off” and a couple of hours mandatory to be “on.” You have to be the Grand Marshal of the Pollyanna parade. It sucks, because it’s not how it is in real life, but them’s the breaks. Accordingly, Jubes is sent home early. Fare thee well, my dear.

In a strange twist, Olivia gets the group date rose. “You don’t even have to say congrats, you don’t even have to say it,” she assures the other contestants, with less self-awareness than my dog.

Lauren H., the low-key racist,  gets the next one-on-one. They casually pop into a Mexican boutique and, before we know it, they are invited to participate in Mexican Fashion Week. It’s almost like it was planned.

Though she is sweet, I’m not sure Lauren H. has emotionally graduated from college. She could still easily pass as the vice president of any sorority, anywhere.

Ben: “Have you ever modeled?” 

Lauren: “Well, I can’t keep a straight face”

That’s not answering the question. No, Lauren H. from Michigan, you have never modeled. Like, just say it, it’s okay. Most of us haven’t either.

“There’s no one here who looks as beautiful as you,” monotones Ben. She wobbles down the catwalk, blinking rapidly but holding her own. From where I stand, the key to modeling (other than letting your hips enter the room about three seconds before the rest of your body) is to give zero fucks. ZERO. You’re so bored. You’re so hot that these unwashed masses are LUCKY that they’re paying to see you strut in front of them.

giphy.gif

Ben served up some Blue Steel realness and he tapped into that slightly cocky, I know I’m hot model face. LET’S DIP INTO THAT WELL MORE, SHALL WE?

Lauren H. shares a “sob story” about some frat bro who cheated on her when she was 19. (So last year…) She gets the rose but she isn’t long for this world.

The cocktail party is a little tense. Olivia keeps rubbing her face with her rose and the girls are not about it. To try and build some goodwill, Olivia responds to Amanda talking about her children by commenting that “it’s like Teen Mom.”

tumblr_ni1uwvH6Pj1slj24go1_500.gif

When Amanda is appropriately offended by this, Olivia backtracks, clarifying that she was talking about the show. Yeah. We got that.

This is the last straw for Emily. She tells Ben that Olivia sucks and Ben is happy because this means they’ve finally reached the point in the season where he is legally allowed to kick Olivia off the show. As the rose ceremony starts, Ben asks if he can speak to Olivia, and the episode ends. The previews from next week tell us we’re going to handing out A LOT of crying points.

Season 20, Episode 5: Points

Vaminos a Mexico! The contestants frolicked through Mexico City with the carefree innocence of people who don’t read the news and have never heard of El Chapo.

Wildcard points would have gone to the first lady to go for a swim (we thought Mexico = beaches or a pool of some sort) and yet no one took a dive. So no wildcard points tonight.

It was also the first cliffhanger of the season (no rose ceremony), poorly timed for our Mid-Season Draft. ALAS, the same thing happened last year so we have a road map. Come back later this afternoon for the official unveiling of the Season 20 Mid-Season Draft Rules & Regs. We out.

Season 20, Episode 3: Best Tweets of the Night

If you’re not on Twitter during the Bach, you’re missing out on some cutting-edge social commentary and a barrel FULL of laffs. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite tweets of the night for your viewing pleasure.

You can follow us on Twitter (and the hilarious ladies below). We live tweet every Monday night. After all, watching “The Bachelor”—much like watching someone fall down the stairs—is funnier when you’re with your friends.

Season 20, Episode 2: Points

Good thing we don’t deduct points for not knowing if a state is horizontal or vertical. Headdesk. Also, can you IMAGINE running on the treadmill and having your crush (who you’ve spent a total of four minutes around) proceed to tell you that you smell SOUR?

200.gif

This week’s wildcard points (15 to the first lady to be bleeped for swearing) went to Lauren H. who complained during the group date with an expletive not suited for the wee kindergartners she teaches. FYI, we post our wildcard points on Twitter at 5 p.m. CST before the show airs; follow us @BachFantasy. We usually post a poll earlier in the day so you can vote on what you want the category to be. Twitter: we’re having fun, come join us.

A quick note about Crying on Camera, if you don’t mind, since we’ve been getting a lot of comments and tweets about it. Because Crying on Camera is worth a meaty 25 points, we demand we see some moisture exit the eyeball area and land on the lower lid/cheekbone/cheek (I like to imagine myself as a football ref during these scenes, blowing the whistle around my neck and yelling jauntily: “The ruling on the field…”) One does not simply procure a mass of 25 points for a little eye-welling-up action. You’ll see that reflected below. I humbly thank thee.

  • Amanda: 85 points
    • Mentioning her kid(s) (5 points)
    • Being selected to go on a group date (10 points)
    • Interrupting someone’s one-on-one time (5 points)

A Note About Season 20

Welcome to the 76th Annual Hunger Games.

Is newly minted Bachelor Ben Higgins the second coming? He very well might be. The last time we were this excited for a Bachelor, he turned out to be Juan Pablo, so…our track record for predicting a good Bach isn’t exactly spotless. Regardless, I have a feeling Ben is a good egg.

We’ve gotten a ton of tweets and emails asking if we’ll be scoring this season. Is the sky blue? Is Chris Harrison sneaky? Is Ben H. a total smokeshow?

We’re here, my babies. We’re here. And we’re unrolling some exciting new features this season.

So stay tuned for an Updated Points Template and a Drafting Guide coming your way. Sign up at the bottom of this site to get an email every time we post. You can also follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

In the meantime, notify your league members. Throw up the bat signal. Place the Dark Mark above your house. BachFantasy Season 20 is about to begin.

Tell us in the comments: will you be playing this season? What’s your team name?

Season 11, Episode 7: Points

Welp, this season we’ve got rose ceremonies at the beginning of every episode and Fantasy Suites happening BEFORE hometown dates.

58b60830d26ef5b1f63fd4edb732fe5c220cba41465f207836d5bf861c5ece40

I never realized how much Chris Harrison resembles Plutarch of The Hunger Games, changing the rules in the Hunger Games arena when he knows Katnissaitlyn has outsmarted him.

You take some unauthorized off-camera time without asking? Oh, okay, we’re gonna GIVE YOU unauthorized camera time. Say goodbye to three dudes this week and march your ass into that Fantasy Suite, toots. It’s like when your mom catches you smoking a cigarette and makes you finish the whole pack in front of her.

Chris Harrison is your mom. Chris Harrison is Plutarch Heavensbee. This is Chris Harrison’s world, and we’re just living in it. Don’t you ever forget it.

Wildcard points would’ve gone to the first person who expressed a desire to go home, but alas, none did.
