*SPOILERS FROM THE FIRST TWO EPISODES*
It’s that time of year again: Bachelor Season! This season is full of competition, drama and love, all in the hopes of scoring Pilot Peter as a hubby. Out of 25 women, it seems America has already picked their favorites, so let’s review.
Kelley – Kelley claims she met Peter before the season started at a hotel during a wedding, and coincidently, the show kicks off its premiere at that same hotel. Kelley and Peter reenact their first meeting and Peter continues to explain his “special feeling” about her.
Hannah Ann – At first, Hannah Ann was the obvious winner: pretty, outgoing and ruthless when it comes to stealing Peter away for time. Whether it’s painting a picture, walking the runway or stealing champagne, more on that later, Hannah Ann seems able to entice Peter every episode
Kelsey – As previously mentioned, Hannah Ann stole someone’s champagne, but whose? Kelsey’s! Kelsey couldn’t wait to share the bottle of champagne she brought all the way from her hometown of Des Moines with Peter. Come to find Hannah Ann has opened it with Peter, and Kelsey isn’t hesitant to share some pretty aggressive words with Hannah Ann. This was followed up with a good bathroom cry sesh. As the night goes on, Kelsey cools off and agrees to share a new bottle of champagne with Peter. It obviously isn’t Kelsey’s lucky day, as she continues to spill the champagne all over herself, creating the moment bachelor nation refers to as “champagne gate.”
Victoria P – Our first introduction to Victoria P was on the first group date – a little look into Pilot Pete’s profession which could ultimately result in Victoria winning a private flight with Peter himself. However, Victoria P stood out in the challenge as she recounted her traumatic childhood experience on the spinning tea cups when the girls were required to do a motion simulator. She remembers how nauseous the spinning ride made her feel as a child and got nervous as she did not want Peter seeing her in such an ill state. After a few runs on the flying simulator, Victoria P. was on her way to the bathroom with Peter close behind. Thanks to the producer’s editing skills and Victoria P’s weak stomach, this dramatized yet humorous moment went down as one of the highlights of the season so far.
Madison- Lucky contestant Madison Prewett got up close and personal when it comes to Peter’s strong family ties. Madison scored the first one on one date with Peter, and where does Pilot Pete take her? You guessed it! His parents wedding vow renewals. How romantic! Although, many are criticizing the act. Bachelor nation has pegged the date as too personal, too soon! Either way, Madison had fun dancing it out with Pilot Pete’s eccentric family.
These are just a few of the passionate contestants after Pilot Peter’s heart! Looks like there’s much more romance and drama to come!
UPDATE: This recap was just on the first few episodes, so don’t worry. Things have only gotten more complicated and intense as they travel all over South America from Costa Rica to Peru (looks like Pilot Pete’s skills are coming in handy)!
