9 The Bachelor Finale Recap – OMG March 11, 2014March 11, 2014 in Videos I…I don’t even know where to begin, friends. Prepare for some dramatic hand-gesturing and facial contortions (see below) on my part. ) What do you think about this craziness?

Oh wow there are no words about this episode but yet so much to say. Where to begin really? Clare had the chance to leave after the rude comment JP made and didn’t and I think she regrets that. Yes she confronted JP at the rose ceremony but your right it was out of anger. Had he of chosen her she would have been thrilled. For awhile I thought Clare was the better choice but as I was watching the final episode I started feeling that Nikki was stronger and perhaps (a big perhaps) could handle him as Clare was more sensitive. Figure Nikki didn’t get along with anyone in the house so it’s interesting she is the final pick. I knew him and Clare had slept together based on that beach episode where he seemed to feel guilty about his actions.
I kept staring at Nikki’s roots as well but maybe she likes that look. She seemed like she was drugged during the final rose episode. I know Andi and Sharleen are so glad they left him when they did. Desiree’s instincts were right and I’m sure she felt she had dodged a bullet by not picking him. It’s sad I had hoped we were wrong. Did he dupe all of us or was this all planned?
He kept interrupting Chris Harrison and I just couldn’t believe it. Why did Chris Harrison let him get away with it? My sister says it’s all scripted and like that movie “I Want to Marry Ryan Banks” (which I haven’t seen but plan too). This article was great on what happened last night and sheds light on why JP said there was a sudden change of plans regarding where Nikki and him will end up.
We know have next season to look forward too. One commenter said on an article I read online last night that we all need to get a life and stop watching these types of shows. In my head I know she is right but it’s mindless drivel I keep tuning into.
I found it funny when Chris said after the break “Have you washed that away yet?” Then he said he was happy to move from that and focused on Andi as the next Bachelorette.

OMG I love you two! That finale and after show were beyond awkward!! I am not even a regular viewer of the Bachelor series but I tuned in for the finale just because I heard so much about what a douche Juan Pablo was/is. I hope that girl (Nikki?) runs for the hills! Great recap! Now I have to go back and see your other recaps from earlier in the season. You gals rock!

I loved your recap but can we not shame Clare for sleeping with him? I don’t think it’s ridiculous to sleep with a guy you like and expect him to still treat you with respect after the “conquest” is over, even in a situation like the Bachelor. I agree it would be wise to consider the fact that he’s dating other women when determining whether or not to sleep with him, but I think if we’re being sex-positive here, she didn’t do anything wrong. He just treated her like crap and she wised up at the end and showed some moxie.
I don’t even really like her very much but felt the need to defend her on that.

Can’t even comment on JP because he’s such a loser. But I was going to comment and say you two both have handsome and great husbands, so I’m glad you clarified that!

Okay, first of all, how delightful is it that you film your recaps under a sign that says “All You Need Is Love.” Second, I agree with Laura above about not giving Clare a hard time for sleeping with him. I imagine she wasn’t the only one, either on this season or in the history of the show. There is something about the experience that seems to make these people unable to see anything but this idealized vision of the “journey” and the bachelor/ette. Third, shame on ABC for casting this jackleg. Surely any minimal amount of checking on his background, family, whatever would have revealed he wasn’t up for it. I hope Nikki gets out soon before he is able to do permanent damage to her already apparently weak sense of self-worth.

Since I don’t watch the Bachelor, I just wanted to say I really like Kristen’s dress and Sarah, your arms look so toned!

You guys are the best! I was more excited to watch your recap than I was to watch the actual finale.
I have always wondered about the roots too. I just don’t get how they don’t realize how ugly their hair looks! This season Nikki was really the only one where it got bad I think, but in past seasons there have been multiple girls with terrible hair by the end.
All season I thought Clare was nuts and really disliked her, but she seriously redeemed herself when she told him off!

I was so pumped to see your recap for this one. I knew it was gonna be good and you guys did not disappoint! I even had my husband watch it with me. He loves the Bachelor though. I had fun watching your recaps this season. Can’t wait for the next season. Can you guys do more recaps?? Mad Men too, right?
