    I don't know why TB doesn't post my whole comment... What does everyone think about Nick?! I'm undecided!

  • I enjoy the drama that is bachelor but I am not a huge fan of Nick.

  • I'm super pumped! I'm not sure how I feel about Nick, but I think he'll be more entertaining than Luke Pell would've been.

  • @Stankonia2014 Something didn't seem totally right with Luke. I also couldn't get the appeal with him.

    Right? I can't place it and I want to like him because he's a veteran, but something was definitely off about him. He's very diva-like.
  • I always say I am going to stop watching, but I can't look away! I'm pumped! 

    I think Nick has gotten better with time - was not a fan until paradise. Should be interesting!

  • I've never been a Nick fan... just really found him skeezy after the season with Andi, I find him manipulative...
  • Happy Ending?  Ugh... I'm not sure I'll hang on this whole season and I'm only 6 minutes in!

  • I love the Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise/Bachelor Pad. They're my guilty pleasure reality shows. 

    I am in the minority because I have liked Nick since Andi's season. I think Nick got a very unfair bad rap based on his comment about having sex with her during After the Final Rose. In my opinion, she basically forced him to say it. She would not give him closure (apparently, he tried to go see her before AFR, but she wouldn't talk to him or see him when they could have hashed out at least a little bit beforehand in private) and wouldn't acknowledge anything during AFR. He tiptoed around it before finally asking why they had sex if he wasn't the one she was going to choose because she either wasn't getting it or was purposefully playing dumb (my vote) and wouldn't give him any reasons or closure on it. The only other thing he did during the season that people didn't like was be "too cocky" or "over confident" or whatever. I didn't really get that. Honestly, they should all have his level of confidence in the relationship or why are they there.

    So yea, I liked him since the beginning. And I wanted Kaitlyn to pick him over Sean because Sean was just a giant jerk. 

    I think Luke would have been a cool bachelor and I did really like him, but I think he would have ended up being one of those bland pretty boy bachelors, kind of like Chris Soules, Sean Lowe and Ben Higgins to some degree. Nick will definitely goose the ratings, so I understand exactly why they picked him.

    I'm surprised at how young some of the bachelorettes are!  There are several 23-year-olds in there. I think people can make a 13-year age gap work, but it's definitely not something I would purposefully seek out and choose like they are. 

    Unfortunately, I'm going to have to bow out of the convo now. :(  I don't have TV so I watch the episodes on abc.com. A couple years ago, ABC decided to stop putting them online the day after they air so now I have to wait a week while trying to avoid spoilers. It really sucks
  • Should we declare whether or not people should avoid due to potential spoilers?

    I had assumed people would post while watching but also don't want to ruin anything for anyone.
    Stankonia2014
  • I'm not the biggest Nick fan...I just think it's weird he keeps turning to television to find his love...but anyways, pass the popcorn. 

    These intros are boring and awkward so far...

    Something about Nick makes me think he's good in bed. I'm watching.  He'll probably take of his shirt.

    Oh, I always assume I have to avoid threads like this during the season. Don't avoid spoilers just for me.

  • Anyone wanna call out early faves or the classic crazy chick?

    I really like the SPED teacher and the NICU nurse from Nashville. I also am rooting for the girl he met at the wedding.

    I think the chick he kissed is going to be the token crazy.

  • I also dig the girl he gave the impression rose too!
    devow27
  • @Stankonia2014 I like her too! Blonde nurse seems sweet too but I feel like she will fall behind...

    The shark/dolphin costume kills me.

  • I'm liking Vanessa and Liz, wedding girl.  I'm biased though as they only spotlighted those few...

    I agree with @devow27 that I think the NICU nurse from Nashville won't make it... too sweet and put together, at least on the surface.

    Corinne will be the classic hated girl but I'm not sure about the crazy... Josephine is too obvious, done expect her to last much longer than a few episodes... we need a long term season crazy.

  • I was never a fan of Nick (always found him annoying) but I do think he was a good choice for the bachelor. DH and me and a few friends are playing the bachelor fantasy league on ABC, so it was really fun watching last night and seeing which questions we got right! For the record, I got 4 right out of 8, but our friend guessed right on the first impression rose. That just blows my mind, how he was able to guess right out of 30 women. So. Impressed.

    My favorite is Vanessa right now.

  • I'm such a sucker and always read Reality Steve's spoilers. I won't spoil it for any of you, though.

    I do too!!!!!!! My husband gets SO mad at me about it.... He says "WHY do you even watch it if you already know what is going to happen?!"  And my friends IRL make me swear not to tell them!!!

    But - I haven't gotten a chance to look yet.  Has he already predicted/announced the winner @Stankonia2014
    ?

    I like NICU nurse the best so far.
    Raw hot dog girl: vom.
    And I just can't get on board with shark wannabe dolphin. I feel like I would find her very annoying IRL.

    OK, I can't stay away.  :p  So I just saw that Amanda and Josh, who got together on last season of Bachelor in Paradise, split up. 

    Is anyone surprised? Anyone? No one? That's what I thought.

    I liked Amanda in Ben's season but on BiP, I quickly got a bad taste in my mouth. She just started seeming more and more fake to me. And I've never liked Josh even back in Andi's season, but he just got worse on BiP. I didn't think they'd last as long as they did, but I knew they'd eventually break up.

  • @lovesclimbing Josh is the worst. Gives me major heebie jeebies. I bet they stayed together so long for publicity, that just seems like the kind of people they are.

    Amanda is the worst. She is so fake.
    This season I like the one he gave the first impression rose to, the one from the wedding, and the NICU nurse.
