Group Date 1 – Night Portion
Corinne on watching Nick kiss Danielle L.: It was the worst day of my life!
Oh, Corinne. Life is going to get SO. MUCH. WORSE.
Corinne immediately steals Nick for one-on-one time. The other women are not amused.
Corinne: Planned dancing is not my strong suit.
Nick: Planned dancing?
Corinne: What’s it called again?
Nick: You mean choreography?
Corinne: Choreography! That’s it.
So vocabulary isn’t your strong suit either Uh-huh.
Corinne: I’m sorry I wasn’t at the rose ceremony.
Well, I’m still trying to see if I can penetrate all your orifices without anyone finding out so Apology accepted.
Feeling upbeat after her convo with Nick, Corinne finds a couch to nap on instead of returning to the contestant holding area.
Nick grabs Danielle for some alone time. I’ve noticed that Nick has this move he uses on women he wants to make out with. It’s starts with him grabbing the girl’s hand and then pulling it over his shoulder to bring her in for a kiss.
He used it first on Corinne. I thought it was interesting and kind of sexy but then he did it again with Danielle and all I could think was, “Boy’s a straight up playa’.”
Nick’s signature move brought to you by AXE Body Spray®: It’s cheap but chicks dig it.
Back at the mansion, the one-on-one card arrives.
“Vanessa, you make me feel like I’m floating. -Nick”
Dominique is not happy with her lack of time with Nick: This isn’t dating. It’s waiting.
True dat, Dom, but you never had a chance at even getting a one-on-one. The best you could have ever hoped for was to gain a solid following on social media.
Back on the group date, Corinne wakes up from her nap.
She stumbles back to the contestant holding area.
The subject of babies comes up after Corinne and a couple of the other women talk about the minor boob jobs they want to get (Just stop it. None of you need boob jobs).
Corinne: I need to get Racquel ready for [when I have a baby].
Jasmine: Who’s Racquel?
Corinne: My nanny.
Did you just say you have a nanny, you entitled white skank? Do you do your own laundry?
Corinne: Racquel just does it. It makes her happy and I’m not going to stop a woman’s happiness.
Danielle gets the group date rose. Shocker.
Corinne: Nick couldn’t give me the group date rose again because it would put a target on my back. Danielle is really pretty but there isn’t much else there.
And if that wasn’t enough of the pot calling the kettle black for you, she solidifies her hypocrisy with this followup comment:
Screw the Backstreet Boys. This is THE BEST BACHELOR DATE EVER!
Nick and Vanessa get to go on a plane that simulates low gravity. AWESOME!
Very few people ever get to do this. Astronauts, actors, and Stephen Hawking are the only people I know of.
Watching this date made me very happy. I was smiling the whole time and I’m not much of a smiler. I felt like I was floating too.
Nick seemed really sincere in his affection for Vanessa. Watching him take care of her after she got motion sickness and seeing him tear up at dinner, overcome with emotion, almost made me forget that in addition to the things I like about him, Nick’s also a slutty fame whore.
Vanessa has an ethereal quality that I find very compelling. She draws me in. Not the way that Sharleen Joynt does with her intellect and insight but with her heart. She’s emotionally and spiritually compelling, almost angelic but not in a sugary sweet way.
I got serious soulmate vibes watching Nick and Vanessa together. I just don’t know if Nick is as ready to find a soulmate as he claims to be.
At dinner, Vanessa mentions that the thing that really struck her watching Andi’s season was Nick’s connection with his mom.
This might seem kind of creepy given the Oedipal way in which this comment could be interpreted, but I find Nick’s mother to be emotionally compelling in a similar way to how I find Vanessa emotionally compelling. I like Nick’s mother very much. The fact that she’s what stood out to Vanessa about Nick makes me like her even more.
I also liked the story about how she was given a rose at her grandfather’s funeral three weeks before filming started.
Nick: I don’t know if I can trust my emotions in this atmosphere because I was wrong about Andi and Kaitlyn but Vanessa gives me hope.
Then, pretty please with sugar on top, don’t be a dumbass and choose Danielle.
