Shanae has obviously dominated the "Bachelor" conversation for the last 2 weeks and will continue to do so while she's on the show. She is everything everyone talks about. And yesterday, a reader made a great comment about her that I didn't notice. We saw Shanae tell the women in one episode that she wasn't there to make friends. Penalty fee. We have someone like that every season. But then at the same time, she complains to Clayton about how women ignore her. Well, if you're not there to be their friend, which we clearly saw you say, why would it bother you in the least if they ignored you? In fact, wouldn't that be EXACTLY what you want? Leave you alone so you can focus on your relationship with Clayton? So yeah, she loses me with her "woe is me, women are ignoring me" nonsense. He ridiculed women if they were kind and respectful as fake. But then if they don't talk to her and ignore her, they're stalking. Pretty manipulative if you ask me. Shanae deserves all the criticism she's getting. No insults, no death threats, no cyberbullying. Review. There is a difference. What was my column yesterday was critical. What you'll hear me say in some answers is criticism. I even offered him a solution of how he should act in the future. I hope she listens? No. But that's up to her. She's gone so far now that she's not coming back. I have a feeling that he will gravitate towards this character even more on the WTA. Then we'll see if he really feels it.
A change to tomorrow's podcast. I had to delay the guest a week because his schedule interfered. So, on short notice, it's almost impossible to find someone, so this week's podcast will be "Emails From Readers." I've saved a few that were set to be in today's column (I basically did it chronologically, so the last 10 I get are the first 10 that will be on tomorrow's podcast), so get more "Reader Emails" as soon as you can today for tomorrow's podcast. No audio, just emails and DMs and I'll try to include them in tomorrow's podcast. I keep saying tomorrow, but it will probably go up tonight because of the weather we've been having here since last night, which could shut down the internet. Get those emails in the next few hours and I'll try to include them in the podcast.
I mentioned yesterday that during Monday's episode, someone had messaged me about the family who hosted the backyard barbecue for Clayton and Rachel and that they were locals who owned a well-known barbecue place. Well, I deleted it before writing the information, so I asked if someone could send it to me again, and many of you did. They were covered in the Houston Chronicle yesterday. Sort of sucks that ABC selected to blur the title of their barbecue spot. Had been they informed beforehand that they have been going to try this? You'd suppose this household would enroll to do that to let individuals know they’ve a neighborhood barbecue, to not fake they're random individuals internet hosting a yard barbecue. A little bit complicated, however okay. They obtained protection not less than within the Houston space and now right here.
Since I didn't get to that yesterday, a couple of ideas on all issues associated to the soccer group date that the present ended with on Monday evening:
-I'm not even satisfied that the scene of Shanae listening by means of the partitions was truly a frame-by-frame shot. All we saved seeing was a shot of Shanae with one ear pressed in opposition to the wall and one other shot of girls speaking on the sofa. So Shanae was capable of make out every little thing they have been saying? They didn't even communicate very loud. This present has used a lot producer/modifying manipulation time and again, that no, I'm not going to imagine 100% that that's precisely the way it all occurred. And even when he DID, did he justify Shanae doing what he did? That reply can be no.
-This present actually loves their soccer dates. That is what I’ll say. Everyone knows that after a journey begins in a season, everybody will get a date. And the journey often begins when there are about 15 individuals left. There are at all times two 1-on-1s, so discovering a gaggle date that includes 13 individuals, nicely some type of sporting occasion or competitors appears to be one of many few choices they’ve. And also you noticed all of the clips from previous seasons the opposite evening. You type of overlook what number of seasons they've had one. Hell, we even obtained a Jake Pavelka sighting. Granted, it wasn't him within the yard of the mansion elevating his voice and berating a crying lady on nationwide tv, however nonetheless, we obtained to see Jake. Whoever informed him it might be a very good look is loopy. That's embarrassing and scary, trying again now.
-I like soccer. I’ve been watching soccer for years. College . I guess on soccer. Ummmm, what I noticed on Monday was not soccer. Now I hope these ladies are operating RPO and the prolonged offense? No. Buuuuuuuut, it was simply 13 ladies separated by completely different coloured shirts operating with a ball of their palms. The one factor I took away from that recreation was that Sierra Jackson and Marlena Wesh would be the starters for the Houston Texans subsequent season.
-We've seen the whole "dropping group despatched residence" a number of instances earlier than on this present. However let's be trustworthy, the manufacturing made certain that no matter group Shanae was prepared to lose on so they might do what they did. It's so humorous to me that Shanae's reasoning wasn't actually reasoning in any respect. "I should be right here." Ummm, no you don't. And naturally, ANY lady who was on the dropping group would have liked to have additional time with Clayton later that evening. However solely Shanae is allowed to do it as a result of she is the one concerned within the story. Not that Shanae took it upon herself to try this. It's all manufactured drama and he was allowed to go see it as a result of it was a manufacturing concept. Don't you suppose anybody else on that group would have wished to go? After all they’d have.
-“This isn’t the Bachelor. It's Shanae's present." I imply, that ought to let you know every little thing it’s essential to find out about the place his head is. And within the second you say that as a contestant on this present, you may't be stunned for a second when the viewers doesn't such as you. She has nobody in charge however herself. and manufacturing However extra herself.
