Brenda Bartolomeo is back with her views on The Bachelorette

This week, Brenda Bartolomeo from Betting Brenda is back to discuss The Bachelorette.

JB: Brenda, I’m glad you could join us again.

Brenda: Thanks for having me. You know how much I enjoy talking about The Bachelorette.

JB: It’s been a long time since you’ve joined us.

Brenda: I’ve been busy with the new restaurant in Las Vegas.

JB: That’s great. Is it open?

Brenda: It’s been open for about a month. It took a little longer than expected to plan it all out.

JB: I’m glad it’s all worked out for you.

Brenda: Thank you. I’m sure it will all work out for Kaitlyn too.

JB: What do you think of the remaining guys?

Brenda: There are only two that stand out to me — Jared and Shawn.

JB: What do you think of Nick?

Brenda: I don’t like him. Frankly, I’m not sure what Kaitlyn was thinking when she allowed him to stay and then spent the night with him. After what he did to Andi on national TV, I wouldn’t trust him.

JB: What are your thoughts on the dates so far?

Brenda: Kaitlyn has made this season so much fun. The boxing and sumo wrestling dates were great. But the rap battle and mariachi singing are my favorite dates. The guys have been great sports.

JB: If you had to pick one guy for Kaitlyn, who would it be?

Brenda: Shawn. He’s hot, of course, but he seems to love her. I don’t think the other guys have fallen for her like he has.

JB: Well, after the video Kaitlyn posted a couple of weeks ago, it appears she agrees with you.

Brenda: Yes, and I’m happy about that. I was worried that it would be Nick.

JB: Thanks for stopping by and chatting.

Brenda: Anytime.

JB: Remember, you can check out Brenda’s story in Betting Brenda. Of the remaining guys, who would you pick for Kaitlyn?

The Bachelorette Is Full of Laughs

I swore that I wouldn’t watch this season of The Bachelorette, but a friend of mine said I was missing out and I had to watch. Luckily, I had the episodes I missed on DVR because my friend was right. This season of The Bachelorette has been so much fun.

Apparently, Kaitlyn wants the guys to fight for her. The first group date required the guys to box each other. Kaitlyn thought the date would be fun. She didn’t want anyone to get hurt. Then why did she have them box? Someone was bound to get hurt and, in the end, that someone was Jared who I believe ended up with a concussion.

In the last episode, the guys learned to sumo wrestle. Watching the guys wrestle was hilarious. One guy had his private parts hanging out the entire time. At one point, everyone laughed at him and still he didn’t try to adjust himself.

In the midst of all of the fighting, which has occurred even outside of the dates, we have an alleged bromance going on between JJ and Clint. To me, it looks like the producers made this bigger than it was. It seems somewhat one-sided. Clint has said that he loves JJ, but there haven’t been any clips of JJ saying how he feels about Clint. I guess we’ll find out the truth tonight, but I’m having a hard time believing that this is real.

Overall, The Bachelorette has made for some entertaining summer TV. This is the best season they’ve had in a long time.
