Season 19, Episode 11: Points

Another season down the corn silo, folks! Who won in your league? Any upsets? I think Whitney was the most excited winner in the show’s history. I half-expected her to chew up that final rose and swallow it. But dagnabbit if I don’t believe in their love. My jagged edges are being sanded down with each passing year.

ALSO: can we talk about the double dose of Bachelorettes? Becca put it best in a tweet last night:

Season 19, Women Tell All: Points

“Can I just say something?” Too bad that question wasn’t a points category because I heard it about 35 times from the peanut gallery last night.

Nothing was really clarified, though. I don’t think Kaitlyn, Britt, or Jade got the closure they were hoping for from Chris. Carly emerged as a pseudo-villain. Ashley S., fresh off her onion farm, pranced around the stage. I’d love to get her going on a “9/11 was an inside job” rant. Kelsey cemented her role as the least sympathetic widow in the history of television. Chris Harrison wrote a romance novel (?) that I’d only consider buying to be ironic.

In other words, it was classic Bach.

Remember, these points are optional, and you can choose in your league if you want to award them to your teams post mid-season draft or from episode 1.

  • Ashley S.: 25 points
    • Getting chosen for a one-on-one interview with Chris Harrison (25 points)
  • Britt: 65 points
    • Getting chosen for a one-on-one interview with Chris Harrison (25 points)
    • Crying on camera (25 points)
    • Asking Chris Soules why he got rid of her (15 points)
  • Carly: 30 points
    • Crying on camera (25 points)
    • Apologizing to another contestant (5 points)
  • Jade: 65 points
    • Crying on camera (25 points)
    • Getting chosen for a one-on-one interview with Chris Harrison (25 points)
    • Asking Chris Soules why he got rid of her (15 points)
  • Kaitlyn: 40 points
    • Getting chosen for a one-on-one interview with Chris Harrison (25 points)
    • Asking Chris Soules why he got rid of her (15 points)
  • Kelsey: 75 points
    • Crying on camera (25 points)
    • Apologizing to another contestant (5 points)
    • Mentioning a deceased loved one (10 points)
    • Mentioning a previous fiance or husband (10 points)
    • Getting chosen for a one-on-one interview with Chris Harrison (25 points)
  • Megan: 10 points
    • Mentioning a deceased loved one (10 points)
  • Trina: 20 points
    • Saying “I’m not here to make friends” (20 points)
    • Editor’s note: she said, “It’s the Bachelor; you’re not here to make friends!” but it’s damn close so we’re giving it to her.

Introducing (Optional) “Women Tell All” Special Points Categories

Based on popular opinion from last season, we’re going to score the “Women Tell All” episode this year. It’s completely optional, so if you decide not to award these points in your league, ain’t no thang.

We’ve decided to only award points to the contestants belonging to each team AFTER the mid-season draft. Some of you pointed out that it seems like we’re punishing people who drafted well (i.e. have Whitney and Becca remaining on their teams and thus don’t have an opportunity to score as many points in the Women Tell All). We’re actually hoping that this gives teams who aren’t doing as well a chance to catch up and make the finale even more exciting in your leagues.

If you disagree, feel free to award points to the original teams you drafted. Talk to your commissioner and just make sure you’re all on the same page.

Onto the fun stuff!

Y’all submitted some terrific points categories. We culled through the list and pulled out our favorites. Here’s what we’ll be scoring during the Women Tell All (in addition to the regular points):

  • Entering a guess as to who will win the show (5 points)
  • Apologizing to another contestant (5 points)
  • Mentioning a new romantic interest in her life (10 points)
  • Asking Chris why he got rid of her (15 points)
  • Admitting that feelings still remain for Chris (20 points)
  • Getting chosen for a one-on-one interview with Chris Harrison (25 points)

No wildcard points for this episode. Good luck!

Season 19, Episode 6: Recap

Can somebody explain to us what exactly was the intended date activity in the Badlands (besides death stares and backstabbing)? Did they plan to just roll around on the bed that somebody airlifted from the set of Faith Hill’s “Breathe” music video?

The Five Best Moments That Earned Points

  1. Ashley I.’s crying face. It’s exactly like a toddler having a tantrum in the candy aisle.
  2. Kelsey’s self-diagnosed “panic attack.” We WebMD-ed her symptoms just to check. Turns out the medical diagnosis here is “Manipulative Temper Tantrum.”
  3. Britt dancing with Chris at the Big & Rich concert, while hearing the song “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy” for what was clearly the first time. Did she not have ears in 2004?
  4. The most awkward helicopter ride in Bachelor history. Kelsey tried very hard to impress Chris and Ashley I. (who like, totally has a Master’s degree too, okay?!?!) by reciting the president’s faces on Mt. Rushmore. Calm down, Wikipedia.
  5. Kaitlyn spitting out some country rhymez on the group date. Leave it to our girl Kait to shut a date down, flip it, and reverse it.

The Five Best Moments That Didn’t Earn Points

  1. When Chris choppered off solo into the sunset, leaving Kelsey and Ashley I. alone in the Badlands.you-can-walk-home
  2. Jade’s awkward run down the streets of Deadwood with Big (or was it Rich?) in order to unlock her songwriting potential. You know that cameraman was like, “Slow down, fuckers.”
  3. Kelsey’s ice-cold, laser staredown at Ashley I. when she returned to the canopy bed in the Badlands (sidebar: Canopy Bed in the Badlands would make a great band name. I call it. Mine.).
  4. Chris, returning to the group date with Britt, offering a lukewarm non-apology for being a teensy bit insensitive to his other girlfriends while on the date, and then peacing the eff out of there. Screen Shot 2015-02-15 at 4.04.56 PM
  5. Chris’s adorable schoolgirl giggle, which was out in full force during his one-on-one with Becca. Some peeps on Twitter seemed creeped out by it. I found it oddly endearing.

Wildcard points for tonight: 25 points to the first lady who says, “I really need this one-on-one date” (or similar).

Get ready for two back-to-back episodes this week!

Season 19, Episode 6: Points

Last night was a points bonanza! If looks could kill, there’d be no one left standing on this show. The girls were throwing major shade at group-date-rose-winner Britt, who—according to Whitney—committed the cardinal sin of not even appreciating country music. We ended with a delicious two-on-one date with Ashley I. and Kelsey in the Elephant Graveyard from The Lion King. As soon as that date card arrived, I was like:

6f6

On to the points. This might be an unpopular decision but I’m gonna double-down, (so just try and come at me, bro): Whitney is the only one seen do-si-doing on camera with Chris after all the ladies sang individually on the group date. I watched it about five times. Once in slow-mo. So she’s the only one we’re awarding dancing points to (besides Britt, who danced at the concert with Chris).

Peace be with you.

Lastly, we didn’t award any rose ceremony points for the end of Episode 6 because there wasn’t a rose ceremony. Chris did send both Ashley I. and Kelsey home, so that’s probz why ABC skipped the rose ceremony. But no rose = no points.

  • Ashley I.: 75 points
    • Crying on camera (25 points)
    • Getting the rose to stay another week in Episode 5 (25 points)
    • Riding in a helicopter (10 points)
    • Kissing Chris on the lips (10 points)
    • Going on a picnic (5 points)
  • Becca: 80 points
    • Getting the rose to stay another week in Episode 5 (25 points)
    • Being selected to go on a one-on-one date (20 points)

    • Mentioning a deceased loved one (10 points)
    • Mentioning a previous fiance or husband (10 points)
    • Riding in a helicopter (10 points)
    • Going on a picnic (5 points)
    • Wildcard points for calling Chris “handsome” on the two-on-one date (20 points)
    • Crying on camera (25 points)

    • Crying on camera (25 points)

Welcome to “The Bachelor” Fantasy League, Season 19

Welcome back for our third season of BachFantasy! After a few months of productive Monday evenings, we’re back and ready to let The Bachelor suck the life out of us all over again. This season’s crop of bachelorettes (farmer pun absolutely intended—buckle up and get used to it) is full of freshly spray-tanned ladies who all lied about their willingness to move to Iowa in the name of love.

If you’re new to BachFantasy, or could use a little refresher on how this works, keep reading. Otherwise, we’ll see you back here on January 6th with Episode 1 points. (Wish you were watching along with us each week? Follow us on Facebook and Twitter; we live tweet each episode!)

How Our Bachelor Fantasy League Works

1) Gather your “Bachelor”-loving friends and choose a League Commissioner. The Commissioner is responsible for tallying league members’ points each week and sharing the standings with the league.

2) Choose how your league is going to run your draft (read more on that below) and submit your contestant picks to your league commissioner.

3) Watch “The Bachelor” every Monday night, beginning January 5th on ABC.

4) Visit this blog every Tuesday morning to see how each of your contestants scored. The league commissioner should add up the point totals for each team in order to figure out the weekly rankings.

Calling all league commissioners: click here to download a BachFantasy scoring template.

The Draft

You have a few options when it comes to drafting your Bachelor fantasy league team team of five contestants. Click here to read more about how to draft your team.

Mid-season Draft (Brand New!)

This season, our league is trying something new to spice it up. When there are 10 ladies left, you’ll have the option to trade one of your players or replace an ousted player with one of the remaining bachelorettes.

For example, if my team is down to two ladies, I can draft one of the remaining ten to my team for a new total of three active players. Or, if I still have a full team of five, I can trade one of my players for a bachelorette I think has a better chance of winning. Spicy, no?

Points Categories

You’ll be rewarded for drafting bold contestants but more so for drafting contestants who go the distance. Points are divided into Phrases, Actions, and Roses.

We’ve added a new wildcard point category to keep things fresh throughout the season!

Phrases

  • Talking about her parents’ relationship (5 points)
  • Mentioning her kid (5 points)
  • Mentioning a deceased loved one (10 points)
  • Mentioning a previous fiance or husband (10 points)
  • Saying “I’m not here to make friends” (20 points)
  • Saying “I’m falling for you” to Chris or “I’m falling for him” to the camera (20 points)
  • Saying “I love you” to Chris (30 points)
  • Telling Chris that someone in the house “is not here for the right reasons” (30 points)

Actions

  • Interrupting someone’s one-on-one time (5 points)
  • Bonus: using the phrase “steal Chris away” during said interruption (5 points)
  • Dancing at a concert (5 points)
  • Singing/playing an instrument for Chris (5 points)
  • Hot tubbing (5 points)
  • Giving the Bachelor a gift (5 points)
  • Going on a picnic (5 points)
    • Must be sitting on the ground
  • Riding in a helicopter (10 points)
  • Kissing Chris on the lips (10 points)
  • Appearing visibly drunk (15 points)
  • Needing medical attention at any point (20 points)
  • Crying on camera (25 points)
    • Must actually see moisture fall
  • Having a secret boyfriend at home (25 points)
  • Having a body part blurred out any point (30 points)
    • Only for nudity; having your mouth blurred for profanity doesn’t count
  • Leaving the show early on his own accord (30 points)
  • Drafting the next Bachelorette on your team (40 points)
  • Coming back to the show to beg for another chance (50 points)

Roses

  • Getting the First Impression Rose (35 points, only available first night)
  • Being selected to go on a group date (10 points)
  • Being selected to go on a one-on-one date (20 points)
  • Getting the rose to stay another week (25 points)
  • Getting the rose on a group date (30 points)
  • Getting the rose on a two-on-one date (40 points)
  • Making it to Hometown Dates (50 points)
  • Accepting the Fantasy Suite (75 points)
  • Refusing the Fantasy Suite (-75 points)
  • Winning the Final Rose (100 points)

Wildcard Points (Brand New!)

Another addition we’re making this season is a wildcard point category. Each week, we’ll announce the upcoming wildcard category for the week. It will change weekly and is only awarded to one lady per episode. For example, one wildcard category might be: the first lady to be shown on camera in a bikini this week gets 40 points.

Scoring

We’ll score each episode for you and post each contestant’s scores every Tuesday morning. Be sure to check back every Tuesday to see how your teams are stacking up against one another! We’ll also be posting an episode recap for those of you can’t get enough Bach.

Will you be joining us this season? Let us know your league or individual team name in the comments!
