Bachelorette Blog: 'Bromance' ends, tempers fly on Episode 5


Things are really heating up on "The Bachelorette!" It seems like drama lurks around every corner.

Episode five kicked off with the confrontation between Kaitlyn and Clint. (You may recall, episode four ended when she pulled him aside during the cocktail party after 13 of the 15 guys confronted her about him.)

I was so glad Kaitlyn did not put up with his crazy antics as she tried to make sense of his two-faced behaviors. No surprise Clint was flabbergasted when she called him out.

Despite his poor attempt at sweet talking, she told him it was over. I have to be honest, I enjoyed watching him squirm! He couldn't hide from the lies and deceit that surrounded him.

Little did we know a volcano of emotions was about to go off inside the house. When they walked back in, JJ confronted Clint and said he was disrespecting Kaitlyn.

Rage filled Clint as he walked out the room and it wasn't over yet! Profanity filled the confrontation that followed. Clint was furious that JJ didn't take his side. JJ's lame attempt at an apology failed and Clint left.

After Clint was gone, JJ had a bizarre breakdown. He even started crying and slapping himself. Seriously! What was he thinking? Was he honestly hoping to keep two relationships on the show? I think it's safe to say that "bromance" is over.

After all that drama, it was time for a rose ceremony. Understandably, Kaitlyn wasn't feeling it and announced no one was going home. Then Chris Harrison announced they would start the next part of their adventure in New York City.

Doug E. Fresh surprised the men on the group date with a rap battle. There were several surprise guests at the show, including Nick Viall. (In case you aren't a "Bachelor" junkie like me, he was on last season of "The Bachelorette" with Andi Dorfman.  He didn't make too many friends when he called her out about their time in fantasy suite during the finale special.)

Meanwhile, he sparked up a friendship with Kaitlyn on social media and came to fight for her. Instantly, fireworks flew and almost immediately they shared a passionate kiss.

Seriously?! I completely understand why the other men were so upset. How could she let him in so late in the game? At the end of the group date, Justin got the rose, but somehow it didn't feel like it meant too much.

Desperate for answers, she looked for guidance from an old friend, Ashley S. That's right, the crazy girl from the last season of "The Bachelor." Though why she thought she'd lead her down the right path is beyond me.

No surprise, Kaitlyn decided to give Nick a chance.  When she told him, they shared yet another passionate kiss. The other guys better watch out!  I smell a snake in this one.

In the midst of that whirlwind romance, she had to focus on her date with Jared at The Met. My heart went out to him as she peppered him with questions about how he felt about Nick.

Needless to say, he took it like a champ, and was able to draw her focus with a romantic poem. He got a rose, and then they took a helicopter ride. Jared definitely scored a lot of points in my book. I just hope he doesn't get overshadowed by the others.

The next morning Kaitlyn told the men that Nick was moving in. Understandably they were NOT happy, but the men on the group date had to pull themselves together.

Little did they know they were about to audition for their chance to appear in a Broadway production of "Aladdin" with Kaitlyn. I was glad Chris won over the judges with his enthusiasm.  After their Broadway debut, they shared a moment next to the Times Square Ball.

Back at the hotel, it's time for Nick to move in. No doubt fireworks are about to go off, but we'll have to wait until next week to see how it all goes down.

To top it off, San Antonio will be the backdrop for part of the next episode! I don't want to give too much away, but let's just say there'll be a mariachi inspired group date!

Be sure and tune in Monday night on KSAT 12.
