This week’s episode of The Bachelorette Season 16 had so many ups and downs, including these best and worst moments!

This show, you guys. This show. Who knew that, even with all the constraints of The Bachelorette Season 16, which many feared would lead to boredom, would shape up to truly be one of the most dramatic ever?

This season has been different in more ways than just those imposed by the pandemic. The fact that a great deal of the drama comes from the lead herself has allowed the episodes to feel more real than usual since we can see that not all of the dramatic moments are from production pulling the strings. When have we ever seen Chris Harrison himself descend from on high to send a guy home in the night portion of the date? When have we seen the lead be so blatant about who she’s choosing?

It also seems to me that a stronger than usual camaraderie exists among the men, perhaps because they were quarantined for so long prior to the show, or maybe because they can bond over feeling ignored by the lead.

In any case, this week’s episode was truly great. There were things we’ve never seen before, and a plethora of hilarious and cringeworthy moments to choose from; these are just a few worth recapping!
