Bachelorette Becca: Episode 3 Recap & Fashion

Episode 2 left me frustrated and feeling manipulated. That feeling was replicated at the beginning of Episode 3 but quickly morphed into annoyance. Despite an actual dramatic issue in this episode, producers opted to completely fabricate a storyline that fit their version of drama. Look, everyone knows they script the ish out of this show, ...

Bachelorette Becca: Episode 1 Recap and Fashion

If you're new to the Jeans & a Tank Top Bachelor/ette Recaps, welcome! If you're a returning reader, good to see you again and thanks for coming back despite a spotty (sometimes non-existent) record the last few seasons! With that, let's get right into the Bachelorette Episode 1 Recap! Becca's word of the day is: blindsided. In case ...

Bachelorette Rachel: Episode 2 Recap and Fashion

Alright, abc. We need to talk. Things need to change and they need to change fast. This "To Be Continued" crap that you've been pulling increasingly the past few seasons? It's stupid. Every episode is essentially already a "to be continued" situation because the last man/woman standing isn't revealed until the final episode. Postponing Rose Ceremonies is annoying, ...

Bachelorette Rachel: Episode 1 Recap and Fashion

Rachel Lindsay has made her official debut as The Bachelorette and we met all 31 men vying for her heart (or fame), which means it's time for the Bachelorette Episode 1 Recap! A standard first episode without any real surprises, clearly (hopefully?) the "Most Dramatic" moments are yet to come. Scratch that - there was one MAJOR ...

Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay: Season 13 Sneak Peek

The countdown is ON! Season 13 of The Bachelorette, featuring the outstanding Rachel Lindsay, is less than two weeks away. I haven't been this excited about a Bachelor/ette since Ali Fedotowsky (now Ali Fedotowsky-Manno). While the professionals over here (me) work tirelessly on the Official* Jeans & a Tank Top Bachelorette Bracket, Rachel is already wowing ...

Bachelorette Rachel: After the Final (Bachelor) Rose Jumpsuit

It's finally over! Bachelor Season 21 is kaput (as is Nick and Vanessa's honeymoon phase and possibly entire relationship, based on facial expressions and body language during After the Final Rose. While Chris Harrison may have called this the most dramatic season ever, I'm going with the most annoying. Although I haven't seen the ratings ...

Bachelor Nick: Rachel’s Women Tell All Dress

After being a general slacker on all things Bachelor (except the Official* Jeans & a Tank Top Bachelor Bracket), I'm putting out two fashion links in one night. The inspiration? The fantastic jewel-collar gown wore to her final Rose Ceremony on Season 21 of Bachelor. By the time she walked out on Women Tell All, I ...

Bachelorette JoJo: Finale and After the Final Rose Recap and Fashion

Another season of The Bachelorette has come to a close. One more couple has been added to that lengthy list of folks who have gotten engaged following a whirlwind courtship competition. Let's just hope they make it to the not-so lengthy (very, very short) list of those who make it to the altar. How did the season wrap ...

Bachelorette JoJo: The Men Tell All Recap and Fashion

Ah, The Men Tell All. An opportunity for the guys to apologize for their misdeeds and show how they've grown and learned from the experience. A spectacle where few, if any, of the men choose to do so, opting instead to throw blame and take desperate measures to save face. If it weren't for the bloopers ...

Bachelorette JoJo: Episode 9 Recap and Fashion

Episode 9 starts right where Episode 8 To Be Continued. Or, rather, slightly before that. We watch Luke, once again, ask to speak with JoJo just before she hands out the first rose of the post-Hometown Date Rose Ceremony. We watch Luke tell JoJo that he loves her. We watch JoJo break down because she'd ...
