Ep. 152 Bach: Battle of the Blonde Ambition (Season 26, Week 2)

We are bringing back the tarot readings for every episode of Clayton’s season of The Bachelor. This week Megan asked the Final Rose Tarot cards what we can expect from this season of the Bachelor. Megan pulled the Here to Make Friends card, AKA the Three of Flutes. We thought this card was mocking us, but this card is all about surprising connections and bonding, which we definitely see.

This season we are changing things up a little bit. We are hitting the highlights of the episode. We are highlighting the women, the dates, roses and kisses. We’re also giving our “Crime and Rose” episode.

In this episode, we saw a birthday party group date hosted by Hilary Duff, a luxurious one-on-one date for Susie (Danielle can’t spell half of the thing they did), and an obstacle course group date hosted by writer and comedian Ziwe. We see the rise of two blonde villains and we hate it. Cassidy won’t help with the group project unless she gets paid, and Shanae, who gives herself a nickname we hate, outs another contestant’s disability and tries to embarrass her, but really, it’s just embarrassing for Shanae.

BIPOC Highlight this week Danielle was very disappointed with the lack of diversity shown on the screen. We see the second group date rose go to Sarah, and Melina had some good commentary during the date, but we weren’t shown the connection between him and those lovely ladies. With that being said, we did enjoy seeing a black woman host the group date. Comedian and writer, Ziwerekoru "Ziwe" Fumudoh was very entertaining on the group date and taught us about some of the new trendy red flags in dating.
