Episode 136 The Bachelorette: Basic White Trends (Season 18, Week 3)


Each week Megan is asking the Final Rose Tarot cards what we can expect from this week’s episode. This week’s shuffle resulted in two cards: Page of Mirrors and the Knight of Rings. Page of Mirrors is called The Gossip, and Knight of Rings is called the Late Bloomer - and for this episode, the cards are HIT-TING. We’re talking like, batting a thousand - just like our World Series Champs, the Atlanta Braves.

It’s week three of Michelle’s season, and the drama has arrived. We see a Top Gun style group date, featuring the gorgeous Jay Ellis, a one-on-one truth or dare date with Rodney, and a spoken word poetry date, hosted by poet Rudy Francisco. We bear witness to the much promoted “jacket gate” and… while the Jamie drama was bubbling last week, this week it is boiling over.

This week we are highlighting Rodney Mathews (IG Handle). Rodney and Michelle had such a sweet and funny one on one, we just have to love him! Danielle has her reservations, but Megan gets her on the Rodney train and they are headed to Stan Town, USA! We also say goodbye to zaddy Spencer Williams and Mollique Johnson.
