Australian Survivor 2019 starts Wednesday 24th July.
The Bachelor AU starts Wednesday 31st July.
Some thoughts for the week:
Glad Roxi has left now, not because we don't have to see her crying all the damn time anymore (although that's an added bonus) but because of the state of her mental wellbeing in the mansion. Although I have bagged her out, I also can see something of myself in her too & know that I sure as hell wouldn't last 5 seconds in a place like that.
Are we really trying to turn Bella into a villain now? I'm not going to deny that she didn't handle the chat with Irena well (in fact, it showed her lack of maturity), but this season has had enough villains already without trying to add any more to it. I think Bella's either losing the plot or turning on her best acting skills (rumour has it she wants to become an actress).
I think Bec called it when she wondered if she was the only girl there for Locky. I think she might just be the only one, if one of a few.
I am so glad Roxi is gone she is not cut out for mansion life. I get that there's a lot we don't see but it did seem like at certain stages she brought it on herself / she exploded before anything even happened like "grunting" at J before...
Bella storming off / swearing seemed very out of character and put on. I am a bit concerned she is going to turn into Ella becoming too focused on other girls and then the guy gets over them because of it...So, I hope she snaps out of it (though looks like next episode is bad..)..
Yeah, I mean I still think Irina is in it for the long haul and is holding it together the most, but time will tell.
A bit of a round-up of the penultimate episode of the season:
Izzy's mum.....OMG LOLZA @ the sperm comment. I haven't been left that speechless in a long time! (Although to be fair, I was both speechless & cracking up in that moment.)
Can we all agree that men need to stop doing the overprotective thing with their daughters/sisters? It's getting old. (Yes, I'm referring to you Igor/Irena's brother...and Bella's dad...and Bec's brother.)
Bec's "hometown" was a snoozefest.
Bella's "hometown" was Best Actress Oscar-winning performative, although her dad gave his best The Godfather impersonation I have to admit.
Not surprised at our final 2, that was a given & also rumoured from the get-go. I do know who wins already (thanks to the So Dramatic! podcast for the spoilers, although thankfully Megan the host didn't spill all the tea about what goes down in the finale), but I'm still keen to see it tonight & watch how it unfolds.
Speaking of the finale, Locklan, Locky, Lock, W.T.A.F were you thinking telling both women you love them before you make your final pick?!
Didn't bother commenting on the Bachelor finale because that was a mess, just like the entire season. Good luck to Irena & Locky, I have a feeling she will need it more than him. They do seem happy though & I hope they last longer than some of our recent Bach couplings.
That aside, I'm going to start anew with the Bachelorette!
I'm sure this season will be classifed by so many as "boring" (and we already know how I & others feel about Elly & Becky being Bachelorettes), but in all honesty, after the chaos & overmilked drama that was Locky's Bach season, I'm really looking forward to this season as a palette cleanser of sorts. I was actually kind of excited for the premiere tbh.
So far I'm a fan of Frazer, Joe (both of those hotties will be Elly's final 2, mark my words), Saj (he seems like a real sweetheart), Adam (the geologist guy), Shannon (he'll either win Becky's heart or be her runner-up)....and that's it methinks.
Definitely don't like Jake aka Cupid, I think he's a d***. Trying a bit too hard to be a villain.
Apparently the premiere will be the only time we see Osher on screen all season, due to his Masked Singer commitments in Melbourne (this filmed at the same time as that) & all the complications that went down with that i.e. being in quarantine etc.
Got some goss regarding Harry (the winner of the Country Rose)....and no, it doesn't have to do with him being on House Rules previously. Can't say that I'm a fan of his just yet; I'm getting faint Jamie Doran vibes from him for some reason.
I wasn't surprised to see AB walk, I'd already heard about that via, you guessed it, the So Dramatic! podcast. All respect to him though for his honesty; if you're not feeling it, you're not feeling it.
Could this be the best bunch of guys since Georgia Love's season? I think time will tell, but so far, so good.
Thursday night's summary:
Shannon will go far in the race for Becky's heart. Their chemistry was off the charts.
Elly & Harry are definitely not a match. Their timelines & life goals don't match, plus again, I smell Jamie Doran vibes from Harry in terms of wanting to get a rose just to hang around.
Becky & Pete (the one she asked to take his shirt off during the solo shoot & who she had a sneaky pash with) could be a match too.
Frazer.....oooft....HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NURSE! (That's an Animaniacs reference for all the 90's kids reading this lol.)
Adrian (aka steampunk hat guy) gives me Nathan Favro vibes (Nathan being "party boy" from Ali's season). Not buying him at all & that's not just based off next week's promo.
Haven't posted in here for a bit because it seems like people are dunking on this season big time for being "boring". I for one am enjoying it & am invested & trying not to read/listen to spoilers (whereas with Locky's season I really dgaf about anyone & rejoiced in the spoilers); but regardless, here's some thoughts about where it's heading as we get to the pointy end of the show:
Frazer will definitely win Elly's heart at the end, but as to whom Becky will end up with I'm not so sure. I'm hoping it'll be anyone other than Adrian (he needs to go ASAP), but if I had to really pick someone, then it's Pete for me.
James is the male equivalent of Roxi this season. Rumour has it he gets booted soon - we were told it was happening this week, but that was clearly a lie - and I'll be glad because like Roxi, I think he may need some help of the therapeutical kind.
Adore Adam (I've got a thing for hot nerds & shy guys, so he's a perfect combo for me), but I don't think he'll be there at the end. If he is (because I suspect Elly may boot Joe before the finale ala Matty J & Tara), then he'll definitely be runner-up for Elly.
Pascal? More like Ratscal! (I know he got booted last week, but felt I had to mention him.)
Adrian has red flags all over him. Run, Becky, run!
Still maintain that this might be the best season of blokes since Georgia Love's season. They're certainly better than what Sophie Monk & Ali Oetjen got, that's for sure. (Perhaps even better than Angie Kent's dudes, in hindsight.)
I’m enjoying this season, but hoping it’s Sam for Becky.
Thoughts about this week's episodes:
I really can't remember anything about the Wednesday night dates, aside from Becky taking Adrian on a boring single date, that's it. Oh & the Daddy Day Care group date, which I've seen before on this show....and both Shannon & Joe getting alone time afterwards.
Not surprised Sam went home from Becky's lot, nor am I surprised about James getting the boot either. The latter male deserved it after his display at the "final supper". Wish he could've let go of the whole Joe & Elly having a past connection because it was well & truly old.
Joe's doggo Alfie was gorgeous, like his owner. Gorgeous man + cute dog = winning in my eyes, even though I'm 100% sure Joe will not win Elly's heart in the end.
I was trying to observe Elly's body language during her chats with Joe's brother Jacob & there was some evasion going on there. I think she knows (and has known for a while) that she's just not that into Joe, so the poor boy is definitely headed for heartache.
When Becky said that she was tired of moving for love & wanted someone to move to her for once...............OOOFT binch, don't you realise that love is about compromise & sacrifice? (Not that I'd know anything about that personally!) AND that Pete's got a lot going on in his life in Adelaide? I feel like she's getting all Ali Oetjen here (remember Ali & all her stipulations, like not moving for the guy, for example?) & that does not a relationship make.
If Becky picks Adrian in the end, then I'm done cheering for her. Watching her break Shannon's heart last night was hard enough (poor, sweet dork that he is). I honestly don't know what made her change from appearing all loved up with him at the beginning of his hometown to walking away from him heavy-hearted at the end, but I guess she came to a realisation & had to follow her heart. Still don't know what she sees in Adrian tbh; I feel like he'd break her heart big time.
Speaking of Shannon, he took that rejection incredibly well. Such a beautiful soul.
I have a feeling she is going to choose Adrian, which I think is entirely wrong. She is "infatuated" with him and thinks he's so hot (which I don't see, but that's fine), but he seems to be a player and now, is just playing into her by saying all the right things when I don't think he actually does want anything serious yet.
ALSO my god seeing Shannon so so happy and her breaking his heart actually made me teary eyed. He's such a gem and I hope he finds someone + his family is absolutely lovely...when his family was like "we will get him through this" awwwwww...
Yeah I agree I think Elly isn't going to choose Joe either...and it's like get rid of him already then. The comment about not taking him on single date but him being in top 3 was gold.
There have been calls to make Shannon our next Bachelor, which I'd be down for. Even Osher said it should happen! (Even though he has no say in casting.)
As much as I like Joe & (in particular) Adam, I'm unsure if either of them have the personality to pull off such a big gig (especially Adam, who I fear would be like Richie), whereas Shannon I think has it. I also think he's at a stage in his life where he's ready for "The Big One" (i.e. a long-term relationship that will hopefully lead to marriage). Not sure if Warner Bros/Channel 10 will go with it, but it'd be nice if they did.
Yes, I saw that and hope it's him! Though, having the shows back to back Bachie and Bachelorette my interest has waned significantly though I think it's because the girls are so boring to me haha.
I haven't minded them. They're nice enough; but I do feel like we haven't really got to know either of them well, especially Becky. I don't know whether that's due to COVID shortening the season, or the editing, or what, but I feel like we as an audience haven't been able to invest in both our Bachelor & Bachelorettes this year for some reason. BIP has definitely been the superior show of the Bach AU franchise this year, but I can understand why Channel 10 are "resting" it for now & I can also understand why people haven't been as invested in this season of Bachelorette too.
(Speaking of BIP, Mary & Conor have announced they're having a baby. Exciting!)
Yeah I don't know if it's bachie overload, covid, editing or they are just too vanilla for me but I just haven't felt as invested specifically with them. It's like going from the most dramatic season to the most chill it's a big extreme.
So finale is done & dusted. Predictable result in terms of who the ladies picked, but I am sad for Becky that Pete dumped her 3 days after they parted. I watched a video of her on Fitzy & Wippa earlier today & she was visibly upset about everything that had happened. So much for thinking Pete was a decent bloke; I think he needs more time (and some therapy!) before he jumps into another relationship. Maybe she would've been better off diving in with Adrian....
As for Elly & Frazer, I have my doubts about whether they'll last; but then again, if Locky & Irena could make this far, surely Elly & Frazer can too. (If they get past his somewhat controlling mother first!) I felt real sorry for Joe, but the writing was on the wall from the get-go methinks.
I found it interesting they both had their "risky" choice Adrian and Frazer and then the "safer" choice Joe and Pete, and Becky went with safe and Ally went with risky. It seemed Becky had decided on Pete in that final helicopter moment and you could tell for awhile Elly wanted Joe to be where her heart was but wasn't by how she kept saying on paper it's X and it would be easy etc she was like trying to talk herself into it. Whereas, it seemed like Becky wanted to choose Adrian but went with the what seems right on paper. She should've went for her gut in that she did seem to figure out he wasn't healed from his past relationship a bit earlier. Though, hindsight is 20/20 it appears he should've never been on the show to begin with.
I also think Becky wanted Adrian but though Pete was the better on paper and therefore ‘safe’. Can’t help but wonder if her and Adrian meet up down the track.
