The MOST Dramatic Season Ever: Bachelor in Paradise 4 Ep 1

Well, well, well. Guess it’s back for another round of summer loving and summer dumping along with the boozing. Guess that means I’m back as well with my reviews of the “sunniest” shows of all time.

First off, I just love when Chris Harrison knows that we all think that every season is the MOST dramatic season of all time when in reality at times, it turns out not to be. His emphasis is on point with that though.

Also, regarding the whole DeMario/Corinne situation that happened prior to this season actually airing and almost stopping the whole season from actually happening. Because it happened a while back and I feel as though a lot of people have said their fair share regarding the situation, I won’t speak too much about it and will go right into the Bachelor Paradise drama that occurs during this episode.

Before I move forward though, the opening with Vinny kicking the lamp and Amanda running away from pizza. I have to admit, that is pure genius right there haha.

Ah, let the games begin.

So I honestly expected a lot more to happen during this episode from the way the producers set it up regarding the Corinne/DeMario situation and just how they set up the previews. However, I was a bit disappointed to see that there wasn’t much going on. To be honest, it was almost a boring episode. There were little things that happened here and there, but other than that, eh.

We didn’t get too much of Corinne/DeMario honestly, just them frolicking in the pool and other things that are pretty normal. I didn’t expect them to show EVERYTHING, but I felt like they were making things a lot more exaggerated in the previews regarding the situation and that they were going to show the circumstances that led up to the controversy. Oh well. Moving on.

The dates that happened weren’t that interesting either. Just a 5 minute showing of each date and them saying how they like each other and whatnot, blah blah. I feel like I’ve seen it all.

“Every time he brushes his hair, I’m going to take a drink.”-Raven

Ha, the whole situation between Robby and Raven. So funny. I’m actually really proud of her for not really falling for his charms and whatnot and for her being like nah, not that interested in him. Then with  Ben Z and his dog, even though it was edited to make it look like he was talking strictly about his dog for however many minutes, I still loved that moment because I’m such a dog person. I might not have a dog YET, but I love dogs, so that pretty much made me swoon. However, I’m not really sure if I dig Ben Z and Raven, so we’ll see what happens after they return to paradise.

As for the other couples, Kristina and Dean and Matt/Jasmine/Nick the Claus, eh… We’ll see more of them later on too. There just wasn’t much going on there except their dates and little tuffles between Jasmine and Nick the Claus because he got hammered and couldn’t talk to her so she pretty much ditched him for Matt the Penguin.

Iggy and Lacey, there wasn’t much there either, they were sort of into each other and then her family situation came up and she left and may return and yeah… Just puts him on the chopping block there along with the rest of the other guys with no connection.

And as for Taylor and Derek, I sort of think they’re cute albeit people thinking they were boring. I hope we get to see more of their relationship develop each and every episode. I don’t know, we’ll see what else paradise has in store for these people. Any who, I didn’t have too much to say this time because really, there wasn’t much that happened because it took almost 30-40 minutes for all of the cast to even arrive. That’s all for now.

Au Revoir my readers.

Thanks for reading ❤

 

 

 

Mardi Gras Tuesday

Mardi Gras, I have never really celebrated it at all, but this year I was like hmm, seems like it would be fun going to Backyard in PB since it was a Tuesday night and Tuesday nights are super fun at Backyard.

This night, it was a duo night, so it was my cousin and I who went together. We pregamed a little bit and then went on our way. When we got there, it was pretty packed already and seemed super fun. She had never been to Backyard before so I was pretty excited to take her there. We danced at first on the dance floor and then went to the outer area to dance because it was more airy there. While she was dancing, she accidentally bumped into a girl and the girl spilled her drink. I was like, oh crap honestly because I really didn’t want a fight to ensue over a spilled drink (to me it’s sort of petty because yes it’s a paid drink, but it’s something you can replace). Anyway, my cousin went to the bar to buy her another drink and I told her, you better make sure she doesn’t rip you off because spilt drink or not, she has to do right and order the same drink. It didn’t seem like the girl ordered anything expensive, so after that whole debacle, we left to go dance again.

We wanted to order a drink so we went to the bar and one of the bartenders from Omnia works there, so we went up to him because I’ve spoken to him a few times before, but he never seems to remember my name ever. Of course he didn’t remember it this time either lol. Whatever, but he was nice and we talked to him for a bit and got a drink all the while leaving him a decent tip. We drank it and danced of course.

A little later, we wanted something else because apparently she wasn’t drunk enough yet (I’m pretty sure she was, but according to the crap that was being spewed from her mouth, she wasn’t). Against my better judgement, we ordered another drink (I was ok for sure because I can handle a decent amount of alcohol, but i wasn’t too sure about her).

Anyway, this is when s*** starts to almost go down (excuse my language). So we went to another bartender this time and my cousin starts to wave at him and try to get his attention. i was honestly about to smack her because you’re just not supposed to wave down bartenders. They have a pretty good feel for who got to the bar first, so you’re always supposed to wait your turn and just be patient. She kept waving at him and i was getting so pissy because it’s like what the freak?? Is this how you treat the bartenders??! Like what?! I told her she shouldn’t be waving them down like that because they will ignore you even more and not get to you until later. Not only that, but they get really annoyed with you and I just didn’t want a bartender to hate us or get annoyed by us because of something so trivial. So we got a drink and this is when it gets even MORE stupid. I asked her how much I should tip him and I was thinking about $3.00 or so, so it would make the total come out to $16.00. She gave me $10 in cash at that moment and I asked her if this covers part of the other bartender’s tip from earlier and if the rest is for this guy and she kept saying I gave you a $10 and I’m like I KNOW, but is the rest for this guy so should I give him $5 for tip. She eventually got it and shut up, but then I told her I was giving him $3.00 then and I settled for $3.00 but her freaking drunk a** (sorry) kept saying why are you giving him $16.00?!?! And I was like WTF are you talking about??! I’m giving him THREE DOLLARS. $13 + $3= $16 and she kept arguing like that with me for a good few minutes and I was getting so heated and annoyed. I honestly wanted to punch my own cousin like it was RIDICULOUS. I was like why the freak is this argument even happening like wtf. And honestly she ruined my night with how she conducted herself with the bartenders and whatnot.

So after that whole thing went down, we went to go dance and I ran into a friend of mine who was with his roommates. I hadn’t seen or gone out with him for a while so it was surprising. We caught up for a bit and he updated me on his love life. He told me how it was weird being officially single again, but it was interesting. We ended up hanging out with him and his roommate for the rest of the night, but it was so much fun.

After, we were thinking about possibly hanging out with them at their place, but what happened was a security guy came up to his roommate and outright accused him of being all over this one girl when all he did was ask her to dance and she rejected him. I was like as attractive as you are security guy, don’t start spewing crap that isn’t true like what the heck? We saw what happened you idiot, don’t try to be all macho. Yeah, some other security guys ran after some other guys too, so I don’t really know what was going on that night lol.

So my cousin and I just went home and oh before we left Backyard though, we said bye to our friend and I apologized on behalf of my cousin to the other guy because of her waving him down and whatnot and he said it was ok and that most times they just ignore whoever waves them down anyway lol (thanks for that tidbit). I also got his name because for me, I just feel that it’s appropriate to get people’s names and get to know them. I could tell he appreciated that we were apologizing though, so it was good (why am I always apologizing for people lol…) Anyway, we went back to my place and that’s that.

What a stupid night, but whatever it’s over and done with and there’s more nights to come anyway.

Hasta la vista my lovely readers.

First Bar in Downtown

What a lame title, but it’s the best I could think of right now since it’s been weeks since this happened. (This happened a few weeks ago, but I will talk about it as if it happened recently).

So my cousin’s first and new boyfriend came down to SD this weekend and she asked if we wanted to go out to show him a night out on the town, and I’ve been wanting to meet him, so of course I agreed to go. I asked everyone else (my two roommates) if they wanted to and eventually everyone went. So it was my cousin, her boyfriend, my two roommates, my roommate’s boyfriend whom I don’t like, and myself who went out. We decided to go to a bar and POTENTIALLY go bar hopping because we’ve never been out in downtown San Diego before for a bar, just for Omnia usually, so we said that we would explore a bit. My cousin wanted to take him to Omnia, but I was like definitely not. You could go without me because I’ve gone the past 2 weeks, but I am definitely not going. Since I’m the only one who talks and knows most of the people there, they feel weird when they don’t go with me, so they just agreed on going to a bar for now. We went to Analog in downtown SD because we’ve heard only great things about it. It was an interesting place, different vibes from when we go clubbing at Omnia obviously, a lot more chill, but still with good vibes. It had a bar room and then the next room was the tiny as freak dance floor with the DJ stage. It was a very interesting setup and layout.

Anyway…

I told myself that I wasn’t going to get a drink and I was proud of myself because I saved money and didn’t. My roommate shared what she got with me and I drank only a bit of it because she did after all buy it with her money or her boyfriend bought it for her with his money (who knows?). Anyway, they got drinks and we decided to check out the dance floor. It was fun, but crowded and SOO hot. The music was popping though; the DJ really knew what type of music to play. After a while, it got so hot we just went outside to the bar area and danced around that area. Everyone started to do their own thing and then a guy came up to my roommate whose single to talk to her.

I wasn’t jealous that she was talking to a guy or that a guy was talking to her, but after a while,  I just wasn’t feeling it at all and felt uncomfortable and very, very insecure. It’s a feeling that I haven’t had in a while and it just felt really foreign to me. Even though the music was good, I just didn’t want to dance anymore and wanted to be the party pooper for once and go home. I kept saying I was fine, but I definitely wasn’t. I just hated being the 7th or whatever wheel I was then. My cousin had her boyfriend and my roommate had her boyfriend and my roommate kept talking to the one short (sorry), doctor guy who approached her earlier in the night. I wasn’t lonely, I really just wasn’t feeling it because my cousin and my roommate started dancing with me and honestly, it annoyed me because I didn’t want them to FEEL obligated to dance with me because I was “alone.” Even if they wanted to dance with me, I felt like they sort of had an obligation even though they would’ve rather danced the night away with their boyfriends. So I was just feeling insecure, like I was ugly as freak and no one wanted to talk to me or approach me because I was fat and didn’t meet their standards. Honestly, I just wanted to cry; I kept going to the bathroom because I didn’t want to be there and the bathroom helped me calm down a bit. After though, I just didn’t want to go back out and had to force myself every time.

I guess what pissed me off as well was they kept asking me if we wanted to go somewhere else and I said where else do y’all want to go? They kept dancing and kept ignoring the question and it’s like if you REALLY want to go somewhere else either tell me or find somewhere to go because I’m not wasting my time, like we’re just going to end up spending most of our night here if y’all don’t answer. Like seriously I’m not the one doing all of the searching and the work for your asses all the fucking time, do something for once instead of making me do all the shit. We ended up staying there because it was too late to go anywhere else (honestly, I knew it, I don’t like sounding like a know-it-all, but I knew we wouldn’t go anywhere else) lol. Afterwards, they wanted to go eat and i was like um, no. If y’all go eat, I’m about to take an Uber home by myself because I am definitely not feeling it and  I definitely did not want to eat. They started agreeing, but then my roommate’s stupid boyfriend kept bringing up that we should just walk somewhere to eat to wait for Uber prices to go down and we did, but there was a line and I was like of freaking course. Honestly, I really just wanted to go home for once because all I wanted to do was crawl in bed and cry all of my misery out. Thank goodness the Uber prices went down and we were able to get one to go home because I am telling you (sorry for how depressing this night is), but I was being the Debbie downer and wanting to go home. The moment we got in the Uber, the funniest thing happened, we all fell asleep LOL. I didn’t realize we were that tired, but apparently we were. We all fell asleep and all ended up home safe and sound. Yay.

So, that’s all for this night, not much happened except for me transforming to a freaking Debbie Downer, sadly. That’s all for now readers! Until next time ❤
