83 Thoughts We Had During Week 3 Of The Bachelor

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at PSU chapter.

So far on The Bachelor, we’ve been #blessed with your typical strange, overprotective girl, your unnecessary childish cat fights and the lovely Ben Higgins. It’s just yet another season of great drama that makes us question our abilities to find love. Thanks, Bachelor.

Moving onto episode three, we didn’t expect anything less.  So here is a list of the 83 thoughts we were all thinking while watching this week’s The Bachelor.


1.     First date card is here, finally


2.     It better not be Olivia or Lace


3.     YESSSS!!!! It’s Lauren B (nope, not Lauren H., Lauren “LB” or Lauren R.)


4.     There goes Olivia congratulating Lauren B. on her date card.  How much faker can you get, honestly?


5.     Olivia, we all know you would have your toes as fingers if it meant you’d be the one to marry Ben and get the final rose


6.     In walks Ben, looking dapper as always


7.     Ben and Lauren B. are both wearing blue.  Is it a coincidence or just a match made in heaven?


8.     Ben, honestly, you’re taking a girl who just spent hours on her hair in a convertible?


9.     She probably hates you for that. #amirite ladies?


10.  He’s taking her on a plane.  I repeat he is taking Lauren B., THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT, on a plane


11.  She said she’s scared


12.  HOW?! Isn’t this your job?


13.  In the sky, they speak a few words, consisting of well… nothing really


14.  Lauren B.’s eyes start to water from the wind.  Now, not only is her hair a mess but so is her makeup. Good one, Ben


15.  This is awkward


16.  They attempt to kiss, but they end up bumping their helmets into each other instead.  Smooth


17.  But don’t worry, they try again


18.   And again


19.  And another time


20.  Did they even look at the pretty view?


21.  Seriously, how did that hot tub get in the middle of a desert?


22.  HOW?


23.  Ben must love the hot tub dates


24.  Still wondering how that magically appeared and how it’s full of water




26.  But honestly, the real question here is how Lauren B. can get her hair into such a perfect low bun


27.  I would wear my hair like that to my wedding


28.  And she’s sitting in a damn hot tub


29.  Ben stops kissing Lauren B. to announce that the farting sound was not him


30.  Romantic


31.  Then comes the candlelit dinner


32.  Lauren B. explains how her dad loves to mow the lawn


33.  So does mine.  Can I have Ben now?


34.  And she then makes an even more uncomfortable comment on how she wants to meet his family.  It is only week 3.  Slow down


35.  After, is the typical Bachelor private concert where they slow dance awkwardly


36.  Lauren B. gets the rose and they live happily ever after.  Well not really, but we all hope so


37.  #TeamLaurenB


38.  Group date time


39.  It’s a soccer game. Original


40.  Stars vs. Stripes… more like the Where’s Waldos vs. the Dallas Cowboys


41.  “We’re totally going to win because we’re the Stars!” Stop. Please stop


42.  The Stars better win


43.  Olivia cannot go on this date


44.  And they lost


45.  Lace, do you seriously not know the goalie can pick the ball up with their hands?  You’re 20-something-years-old


46.  These girls are crying over their win as if it was a World Cup victory


47.  It’s just Ben


48.  Well, Olivia grabs Ben before he can even finish his sentence


49.  I didn’t see that one coming


50.  Lace: “She’s very aggressive.” And you aren’t? #sorrynotsorry


51.  Another girl tells Olivia they were talking about her ugly toes


52.  Is this middle school?


53.  Olivia asks if they said anything about her cankles or calves.  You’re just making it worse for yourself


54.  Amber ends up getting the rose.  She better get that rose.  She had to go on Bachelor twice to find love


55.  Maybe try Match.com or something


56.  As long as Olivia didn’t get it


57.  Meanwhile, the last one on one date card comes to the house


58.  Casual that all the girls are already sitting on the couch when someone knocks at the door


59.  And the date goes to Jubilee


60.  So according to Jubs, Ben arrives 20 minutes late.  PROBABLY BECAUSE HE WAS GETTING A HELICOPTER READY FOR YOU


61.  “Does someone else want to go on this date for me?” “YES” – all of America


62.  Do the women not understand it was a joke?


63.  This girl may be a little uncomfortable, but she is real


64.  Jubs told Ben her favorite food was a hot dog


65.  Any other girl would’ve definitely said a salad


66.  That was repulsive.  She spit out the caviar right in front of Ben


67.  I don’t know if Ben didn’t like the fact that she was actually spitting up right in front of him or that he was going to have a kiss a mouth full of regurgitated caviar


68.  While in the pool, Jubilee attempts to claw dandruff out of Ben’s luscious locks


69.  Aggressive


70.  She then pulls the, “I have no family,” left card


71.  Ben can’t not give her the rose now


72.  But if she makes it to hometown dates, the real question is, who’s going to meet Ben?


73.  Calia starts crying because Ben is dating other women. I know you’ve seen The Bachelor before


74.  You literally left your boyfriend due to seeing Ben on the show


75.  So chill


76.  Ironic that Ben lost two “close community members” the day right before the rose ceremony


77.  Olivia, what are you doing?? Oh my god. Ben just had two tragic losses, and she is reassuring him she doesn’t have cankles


78.  This must be a joke


79.  This isn’t the spa.  It’s the rose ceremony.  Stop with the massage, Jubilee


80.  Lace, we all know you just left, so you didn’t have to face Ben sending you home


81.  It’s like when you quit a job before the boss fires you


82.  Then, we say goodbye to three irrelevant women we didn’t even know the names of


83.  Is it too late now to say sorry?
