This recap is really late, so it is going to be brief. Life got in the way and my girlfriend and I only got to the episode last night. It is fresh in my mind for tonight’s episode. And if we are being honest, it was a fairly boring episode.
Alright, let’s get to it. Episode five of Rachel and Gabby’s journey on The Bachelorette. (This is going to be a rough one).
LOGAN DOES THE THING
Besides Rachel, Logan is the focal point of this episode
He goes and talks to Rachel and breaks the news that he wants to explore things with Gabby
Honestly, his speech is okay…until he starts complimenting Rachel non-stop.
Stop digging your own grave! You are giving Rachel more ammo and more things to think about
Rachel is upset about this. I understand why. The silver-lining is that now Rachel doesn’t have someone who is giving half-effort into the quest for her love.
This is if she wanted to take the spin zone into optimism, but Rachel does not do that
Rachel is wondering about the process of being “The Bachelorette” and her confidence is shattered again
Logan goes and talks to Gabby
Gabby promises to give him a chance, which is all Logan can ask for
They do have some sort of connection
Gabby admits that Logan was the only one that both she and Rachel had feelings for
Rachel’s Group Date
Rachel cancels the afternoon date and wah, wah, wah
She says that she is too upset. She also says her men are getting the short stack.
Girl, you are giving them the short end of the stick by being so far in your head
It was funny the guys where just walking around Bruge and waiting for Rachel. Honestly very funny, just them wandering like lost pups in the wilderness
Tino gets a little aggressive during the dinner portion and gets the group date rose for showing Rachel that he means business
Rachel enjoyed everyone checking in on her.
Gabby Group Date
Logan is not on the afternoon part of the group date.
It is Nate, Erich, Michael, Mario, Spencer and Jason on the group date. We did not get a group date card.
Mean’s that Johnny gets the one-on-one
There the is the rock, paper, scissors…fish slap gang. Well, alrighty then. Didn’t see this coming.
The post credit scene of Gabby and the bike Belgian man was the best portion of this group date
Logan shows up to the dinner portion of the group date. What we have here, is an awkward face-off
Logan explaining how and why he was there was kinda twisted. Why not have Gabby come out and explain it for everyone?
Nate gets the group date rose due in large part to opening up during the dinner portion.
He also got massive brownie points from being so comfortable around children
Rachel & Aven One-On-One Date
Rachel’s outfit is terrible
I do not like leather outfits.
Rachel and Aven think each other are very very attractive. There is a lot of kissing
Aven is boring, but in a good and regular way
Of course they have a date where they take part in making fantastic Belgian cuisine
Aven opens up about his tough relationship with his parents during the dinner portion
Aven gets the rose. Not surprised.
Gabby & Johnny One-on-One Date
Johnny is fucking hilarious.
Johnny is effortlessly cool.
This is an awesome date. A brewery date? Yes please, sure. Would love to go to a tasting.
Johnny’s called the brewery a “beer farm” which is an awesome name
There is a spa portion to the group date, and that was unexpected
Johnny dominated this part of the date by being goofy
Like letting gabby hit him and say “DO YOU LIKE THAT” – my girlfriend really liked it
Johnny opens up during the dinner portion, which is what Gabby was really looking for
Johnny talks about his depression and self confidence
Second straight one-on-one date with heavy mental health talk – we had Jason last week
Gabby connects to people opening up about mental health, big time
Johnny gets the rose. As expected.
Not a lot of drama, for the first time in a long time?
Some men talked to Gabby about Logan being brought on
We got nothing from Mario and Meatball so they are for sure going home
The vibes that “this is getting real” are hitting hard
Gabby’s dress and walk-down was FIREEEEE
Biggest moment (besides Gabby looking incredible) was Rachel’s men reacting to Logan being on Gabby’s side
Johnny safe with the one-on-one date rose
Nate safe with the group date rose
Erich gets the rose and Nate/Johnny saw it coming.
Spencer hangs around but he is lowest of the group
Logan of course has to advance to continue the drama for a week
Mario and Michael are sent home
Mario got the first impression rose but doesn’t make it to hometowns. I feel like that is surprising.
Michael got a lot of voice about Logan taking up time and the numbers game. They allowed him to get some shine before being sent home.
Aven safe with the one-on-one date
Tino safe with the group date rose
Ethan survives and advances
Tyler is still there as the friend Rachel needs who will do anything
Zach is safe and is the value to pick as winner
Meatball is sent home, and thank god. We didn’t even know his name
There are 11 men left after the eliminations of Meatball, Michael and Mario. Ethan, somehow still around. Johnny showing off his best personality and Nate is just the king.
I am starting to think that I am the “bye week” in this league. But hey, them the brakes. I had some rough choices in terms of lineup selections over the week and I didn’t adjust my lineup on Sunday because I forgot while I was on the golf course. Played Fairchild Wheeler in Fairfield,…

Loved this draft idea from The Big Picture crew. I am not going to be able to do my normal redrafting because there is just enough movies to pick from, but I will have fun going through all of the different categories and determining what my dream lineup would be from the movies i have…
