Where to Start
The Ol’ Switcheroo (Rachel and Gabby Ep 5)
Somehow we’re only 2 episodes away from hometowns… but this week is apparently Logan week. ICYMI Logan is switching teams from Rachel to Gabby—‘the ol’ switcheroo’ as Jared puts it. And, Kay is so done with the Rachel sob story. Another rejection doesn’t warrant a canceled group date. Then, J and Kay discuss how Rachel and Gabby are the epitome of dating tropes: Rachel’s the disheartened dater who wants to be Cinderella, while Gabby’s the ‘chill girl’ who somehow knows how to handle everything. But, J and Kay wonder…can you be too chill? In Jared’s words, Gabby put together a team of ‘elm trees’ as her suitors. IMO, height puts blinders on personalities—how can you see when you’re trapped in the middle of the elm forest anyway? Look up Gabby - he’s lying to your face. Seriously though, what’s the deal with Johnny? He didn’t give us much. On the other hand, Rachel wants Mr.Right to pick her so badly, it’s inevitable that she’ll end up with Mr.Wrong. Finally, J and Kay finish up with the usual games of Would Your Rather & Fantasy Suite, Hometowns, Send Home. Follow @thebetchelor to stay up to date with all things Gabby and Rachel.

The Bar Is In Hell Ft. Brendan Scanzano
It finally feels like we aren’t making things up as we go along. This week Kay and guest host Brendan Scanzano get into the details of who’s gonna make it and who needs to just go home. Rachel and Gabby head to Paris where they have their one-on-ones with Tino and Jason, all seems to go according to plan. Later we get two separate group dates, somehow both of them turn out to be all about Rachel. But the real tragedy was having to watch Rachel’s group date, unless you’re Kay who was kinda into it. Meatball tattletales on Hayden and Hayden therefor, walks the plank. Rachel sends him home after a half-assed heartfelt story about his dog. He somehow couldn’t understand that him going home wasn’t about the dog, but more about the amount of times the producers had to censor his choice words about Rachel and Gabby.
