The eighth week of The Bachelor Season 27 had its fair share of heroes and villains! Can you even believe it?
Welcome to the eighth week of The Bachelor Season 27! This week was not only the stress of Hometowns week, but also the added stress of the ever-so-coveted Women Tell All episode! There was surely a lot of yelling and screaming, but also a ton of laughs, tears, bloopers, unseen scenes, and even some of my faves–and the fan-viewing parties came back!
*In case you haven’t seen The Bachelor Season 27, Episodes 8 & 9 yet, then there MAY be some SPOILERS ahead, so beware!*
Okay, let’s talk…
This week was hometowns week, and The Women Tell All week. Zach Shallcross visited the families of four ladies and got put in the ever-so-famous-and-ever-so-coveted WTA hot seat! There’s really not much to recap here as both episodes speak for themselves; however, all I can say is this: next week will be a wild freaking ride, so don’t forget your seatbelts!
The Bachelor Season 27, Episodes 8 & 9: Heroes
I love how Brooklyn stuck to her true self during this week’s WTA episode. Sometimes, you’ll see people act a certain way on the show, and then when it comes to any sort of reunion episode, they seem different. Brooklyn? Not so much. While I did think that the constant repeating of her boots and laces-related comment was just a bit too much and excessive, I still love her and hope to see her on the beaches in Mexico pretty soon!
During this season, I had such a love-dislike relationship with Katherine. I started loving her, disliking her, calling her a bully, and then back to loving her again. I think she unintentionally sabotaged herself in getting a further hometown date this season. Ultimately, I felt sorry for her and wanted to give her the biggest hug ever. I think she was super underrated this season, and I hope she joins Brooklyn on Paradise. Someone out there will provide her with the love and attention she deserves!
Jess was super overlooked this season, I feel. She was super young and inexperienced with all of this. I wanted her to do well this season, but ultimately her desperation for that one-on-one got her sent home during the after-party of a group date. Jess was truly the main hero of the night. She was able to joke around with both Jesse and Zach, as well as being able to find and fall in love with herself, as well as smiling through the whole time!
The most underrated women of Week 8 are Jess and Katherine! Both of them handled seeing Zach again with utter grace and poise. As far as Jess goes, she cracked a joke with Zach, asking him if all of the body glitter was why she ultimately got sent home. She also fell in love with herself, which is so good to hear–good for her! As far as Katherine goes, she was involved in quite a bit of drama this season, but on the WTA, she handled all of the rehashings beautifully, and I truly wish we got to see more of her and that she got a hometown date!
The most overrated woman of Week 8 was Brooklyn! Now, don’t get me wrong, I do like her. This week, I feel she said her famous boots and laces-related quote way too many times. It was funny the first time, but the second and third? Not so much. It just got old. I still love her!
The Bachelor Season 27, Episodes 8 & 9: Villains
I never really liked Anastasia’s actions and personality, but that’s not to say she’s not a different person in real life. However, on the WTA this week, she seemed the same as on the actual show. I am with the rest of the ladies this week: Anastasia would be in such a much better place if she just owned up to certain things and told the truth. I can kind of, keyword kind of, see her on Paradise, but will she find the one?
I was so hot and cold with Cat; however, she did have the best facial expressions of anyone this season, including Zach and Jesse. However, during the WTA episode this week, she showed some bully-like tendencies that we never saw on the show. We get it–you know things about a certain woman sitting on that stage with you, but there’s no reason to keep it going and bringing it up. As much as that particular woman is quite mean and unreliable, no one deserves to be talked to like that.
Is she a villain? Was she a villain this season at all? Was she an ever-so-classic WTA villain? The answer to these three questions is a simple and resounding no. However, she never said a single word all episode, so why was she even there?! Did every other potential woman say no? Come on, someone like Bailey would’ve been a much better option to fill her seat. At least she had an episode or two to interact with Zach with some sort of story to tell. All Madison has a memory of is a peck that made her cry. Where was Bailey?!?!
