Things definitely got real for Nick Viall Monday night in all four of his relationships on The Bachelor. Nick went on hometown dates with each of the women and even asked multiple parents for blessings to marry. Needless to say, the episode had plenty of awkward moments and there were plenty of tweets that served up perfect reaction to week 8 of Nick's Bachelor season.
There was just so much to react to from Nick and Raven making out in what appeared to be a swamp to Rachel taking Nick to church to Corinne shopping with Nick at an "exclusive mall" to Vanessa and Nick making a scrapbook with her students. Nick experienced quite a bit, and I have to say that all of the women were super lovable. I have no idea how Nick was able to make a choice after those dates, but obviously he has and we'll get to see that next week since we were stuck with another "to be continued" episode.
And that's because at the end of this episode, Nick's first Bachelorette ex, Andi Dorfman, showed up. Obviously, she's just there to look fabulous, show him what he could have had, and impart some sort of advice, but I'm still excited to see what kind of conversation they have. Unfortunately, we all have to wait until next Monday for that to go down.
In the meantime, I have these tweets to give me both entertainment and solace as I try my best to pass the time until the next episode.
1. When Nick Had The "Rose Ceremony" On The Couch
A couch rose ceremony?? Now they're speaking my language. "Netflix and accept this rose?" #TheBachelor— Luke (@CoolerHand_Luke) February 21, 2017
Where was Chris Harrison? That was not a rose ceremony. Sure it was cute, but now I want to know what they were all planning to wear that night.
2. When Nick & Raven Made Out Covered In Mud
Tell me why only raven and nick can make kissing in a mud hole look sexy— Michelle Emery (@MichelleEmery_) February 21, 2017
It sounds totally gross, but Nick and Raven turned their mud make out into a totally romantic date. Raven manages to make everything cute.
3. When Raven Found Out That Her Dad Is Cancer-Free
OMG all the feels right now!! Raven's family is the cutest and her dad is CANCER FREE!!!! Cue the happy dance!! 💃🏼#TheBachelor— Jillian Harris (@jillianharris) February 21, 2017
This was definitely one of the most heart-warming moments of the episode.
4. When Nick Went From Rachel's Date To Corinne's
Rachel took Nick to church, where she's on a 1st name basis w/ everyone. Corinne did the same thing at her church-THE MALL. #TheBachelor— Girls Really Rule. (@girlsreallyrule) February 21, 2017
Don't get me wrong, I loved both dates, but showing them back to back made the differences really stand out.
5. When Rachel Took Nick To Church
Watching Rachel take Nick to church is just one more reason she is going to rock being a Bachelorette! She's my favorite! #TheBachelor— Kendra The Bookworm (@ayers_kendra) February 21, 2017
With her hometown date, Rachel made some fans love her even more.
6. When You Got Sucked Into Shipping Nick & Rachel
I love Rachel & Nick! So much chemistry! Could see them together! I definitely think she's going to win! Oh wait... #TheBachelor— Olivia Caridi (@OliviaCaridi) February 21, 2017
Why did they spoil the ending to their own show? This is so tough to watch now.
7. When You Couldn't Help Rooting For Nick & Rachel Anyway
Rachel's mom: "Nick knows who he is and where he's going." Um, other than the next season of The Bachelorette, you mean? #TheBachelor— Lisa Packer (@shallowendnotes) February 21, 2017
It would be a #TotalNickMove to turn up on Rachel's Bachelorette season. At the very least, he could pull an Andi Dorfman-style cameo appearance.
8. When Rachel's White Brother-In-Law Told Nick He Was White
I mean, he wasn't wrong and it was a hilarious way to break the ice.
9. When Rachel's Dad Did Not Appear On The Show
Raven's dad: Yes— Mia (@askenned8) February 21, 2017
Corinne's dad: Sure sounds good!
Vanessa's dad: Boy bye
Rachel's dad: I won't dignify this with my presence#TheBachelor
We were all looking forward to Rachel's dad confronting Nick, but I guess we will have to wait until Rachel's Bachelorette season until he appears.
10. When Corinne Dropped $3K On Her Shopping Spree
Corrine buys $3000 worth of clothes w/o batting an eye. I delete my whole cart when shipping is more than $5. #TheBachelor— Sarah Tharp (@tharpsarah1) February 21, 2017
I loved everything about Corinne treating Nick to that shopping spree at that very exclusive mall in Miami. I have no idea how a mall can be "exclusive," but I loved how every salesperson seemed to be familiar with Corinne. That felt right to me.
11. When Corinne Told Nick She Loved Him
Corinne tells Nick she loves him so now he has to send her home. He's not into that. Even though that's the point of this show. #TheBachelor— Cody Karlin (@covika) February 21, 2017
This isn't boding well for my girl Corinne.
12. When Nick Met Raquel
I love how Nick is talking to Raquel instead of Corrine's mom 😂🌹 #bachelor— Amelia Callan (@amelia_callan) February 21, 2017
Nick's one-on-one with Raquel was everything to me.
13. When Nick Tried The Olives
It seemed like there was so much weight placed on that moment and it really didn't seem like Nick was super into the olives that Mr. Olympios prepared.
14. When Corinne Told Her Dad She Loves Nick & They've Been Dating For A Month & A Half
15. When Corinne Talked To Her Dad About Her & Nick's Future
Assuming that Corinne will be the "bread winner" and Nick will be a stay at home dad... how weird is this conversation?? #thebachelor— Teale Shawn (@MissTealey) February 21, 2017
This conversation only would have been better if Corinne's dad mentioned something about sponsored Instagram posts.
16. When Corinne's Dad Said She Was The Lid To Nick's Pot
"I am so happy, I think Corinne is the lid to nick’s pot," says Corinne's dad, using a metaphor I have never heard and am now obsessed with— Charlotte Wilder (@TheWilderThings) February 21, 2017
The phrasing was unusual, but I will be looking for excuses to apply this metaphor in my own life.
17. When Nick Met Vanessa's Students
Nick with Vanessa's special ed students 😭😍❤️ melt my freaking heart— madison ambrose (@Mads__22) February 21, 2017
This was definitely one of the sweetest dates of the season. How can Nick not pick Vanessa?
18. When Vanessa's Dad Didn't Want To Give Nick His Blessing, But Did Anyway
Vanessa's dad: I'm not gonna give you my blessing just like that. But anyway, you have my blessing. #TheBachelor— Bach Tweets (@BachBatch) February 21, 2017
I love Vanessa's dad for asking the questions that needed to be asked. I also loved him for giving in since it's clearly what Vanessa would want him to do.
19. When Vanessa Realized Other Women Were Dating Nick
"Wait, youve been dating these other girls in the house this whole time?! And we're on a tv show?!Wtf!Nobody told me!"-Vanessa #TheBachelor— Chief (@BarstoolChief) February 21, 2017
Vanessa seemed very thrown off when she realized Nick had similar conversations about getting engaged with the other women's families during hometown dates. I felt bad for her, but that's the whole premise of the show.
20. When Raven Talked About Being Afraid To Tell Nick She Loved Him
Did raven forget that she already told Nick she loved him like 2 years ago #TheBachelor— Cole Schlauderaff (@MagicMan_TC) February 21, 2017
Raven is my girl, but she already told Nick that she fell in love with him during their private time during a previous date.
21. When Andi Showed Up
She would never! But it would be poetic if she really did pull a Nick and join the competition.
22. When You Put More Thought Into Andi's Appearance
I'm pretty sure nothing Andi says to Nick is going to be dramatic, surprising, interesting or Journey Altering. #TheBachelor— Anon Bachelor Fan (@AnonBachelorFan) February 21, 2017
Obviously, fans are happy to see Andi, but there's seriously no chance that she's there to do anything other than dispense advice and throw some shade Nick's way.
23. When The Episode Ended Without A Rose Ceremony AGAIN
Final rose ceremony is going to end on a cliff hanger. We will find out who he picks on the first episode of DWTS #thebachelor— Elizabeth Glenwood (@elizaglenwood) February 21, 2017
This is ridiculous. The episodes are supposed to end with eliminations so I can mourn the loss for a whole week until the next Monday.
I need to know what happens next and I need it now. Thank god I have Twitter to give me some Bachelor entertainment in the meantime.
