Well, it's over. This seachild of The Bachelor, the 2first but my initially, has actually involved a close. Spoilers ahead, duh.

You are watching: The bachelor season 21 episode 11


*

Settling in to watch, I am proud of Nick Viall, Vanessa Grimaldi, and Raven Gates for having made it this far—yet I am also even more proud of ME because I might have actually looked up spoilers at any kind of time and never before did. I am an hoswarm lass! I want Raven to win because Nick doesn't seem all set for marital relationship, but he and Raven obtain along; maybe if they have the right to day for a few months and also have actually fun it'll increase both of their self-esteems and then their future relationships will certainly be much better. Having a partnership go well boosts your confidence and also permits you to become even more self-actualized, right? Sorry, every little thing I know around psychology I learned from Failure to Launch.

Vanessa's pretty and also whatever, however she and also Nick don't seem to actually prefer each other or really gain alengthy exceptionally well. They can't just hang. Everyone thinks they desire a dramatic and also passionate romance, but the ideal relationships are the ones wbelow you have the right to just be yourself. Passion is fun in concept but uncomfortable in execution, choose selecting "Tusk" at karaoke or singles' night at a bar.


As for the present itself, supposedly this is live? Chris Harrichild is in a warehome of womales in cocktail dresses, teasing that something "unprecedented" happens later. Is it a wedding? The announcement of a pregnancy? A Christine Chubbuck-style live suicide? Who knows! In any type of case, Rachel is coming ago to spreview her light.

THE BACHELOR - "Episode 2110" - The compelling live three-hour tv event will certainly start via America watching in addition to the studio audience, as Nick Viall's journey to find love concerns its astonishing conclusion. Find out if Nick gets his happy finishing on the season finale of "The Bachelor," MONDAY, MARCH 13 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network-related. (ABC/Terhi Tuovinen)VANESSA, NICK VIALLTerhi Tuovinen
Back in Finland also, Nick is still pronouncing arctic "ardick" and also considering the momentous decision ahead. His household deserve to bacount contain their agony that Nick isn't head-over-heels for either of the continuing to be womales. Raven and her hair extensions arrive to chitchat and also nosh via the Vialls, and she appears to fit in fine. Bella, Nick's adorable boy sister, has actually taken a shine to Raven; the least he can carry out as an excellent substantial brvarious other is marry Raven. Raven doesn't seem super crazy about Nick either. She's awtotally analytical. Nick is so guarded. I obtain Ted Mosby vibes from him. This show is sad.


OK, so now my guess is that he picks Vanessa but then "live" reveals that he has actually since dumped Vanessa and also taken up through Raven.

Vanessa meets Nick's family and regales them via the admittedly cute story of as soon as Nick hosted her hair earlier as she barfed in space. She tears up and, after prompting, Nick admits, "I had actually most fun." Vanessa tells Nick's mommy that, essentially, she wants to store dating Nick and sees herself founding a life with him, however it's probably as well shortly to put a ring on it. Vanessa, what is your sad backstory? I must know! Nick and his father comment on Nick's propensity for womales via "strong individualities." Question: Where does a perchild meet a male who is attracted to woguys with solid personalities? As far as I deserve to tell, my man friends are attracted to traditionally good-looking gals that aren't also tall or loud and also are, in reality, type of bland. (Haha, other than you! If you're reading this, YOU are the exception!) Sorry, back to the show.

Nick's dad tells Vanessa that love isn't enough to make a marriage work-related and also then cries. This is literally so boring. This is as boring as the womales the males I favor day. SORRY. Vanessa is crying.


*

Terhi Tuovinen/ABCOK, currently my guess is that in the live finale, Nick reveals that he has, blessedly, gone into therapy.

Nick's household gently points out that if he felt around Andi and Kaitlyn the way he now feels about Raven and also Vanessa, uh, probably that's not the feeling to follow.

Back at the plane hangar, Chris takes a straw poll: a handful of girls think Raven will win; the majority go for Vanessa; a mighty few are sure that Nick will when aacquire be alone and therefore, I'm guessing, obtainable to date those audience members.


Vanessa clintends that she is feeling "a brand-new type of love" for Nick. Does she suppose brand-new for her or does she think she designed a brand-new type of love? Is this like at my 1sixth birthday as soon as I assumed my friend Juliet invented saying "totes" and also then I uncovered out everyone states "totes"? It's totes favor that. Their date task is horseago riding through the scurrently, and it's honestly beautiful. As Nick so eloquently puts it, "Wow."

Unfortunately all that cuteness goes right out the home window as soon as Nick takes Vanessa, who is 29, TO SEE SANTA. What the damn hell is this?Adults have to not think in Santa. It's not even Christmas! This is bullshit. Santa as a metaphor for confidence in love is stupid. I like Elf as much as the next gal yet come on...


*

Nope.

Terhi Tuovinen

Is Vanessa around to leave this guy? She looks miserable. She doesn't desire to contend for Nick's heart, which, fair, but had actually she not seen the display before she signed up? Oh my God, she's crying again. Guys, please do not gain together; you execute not make each various other happy.


OK, now my guess is that after the final rose we will certainly discover out that Nick has been dead the entirety time.

Possibly a week from getting engaged, Vanessa and also Nick sit as much as humanly feasible from each other on a couch and also have actually a sober, possibly also somber, discussion around their loved one investments in this connection. This is dystopian. Nick feels "incredibly strongly" for Vanessa and cannot pronounce the word "de-romanticize." We're an hour in, and I don't even have any type of quotes from this episode bereason it's so sad and also boring. Oh my God, this girl is crying again. Honey, get some Prozac!

I really want Raven and also Vanessa to talk to each other, but I guess they're being maintained apart? Ah well, another cute Raven/Nick day. They're skating aobtain, this time on ice. The producers reusage "Kiss Me" because when you've bought the rights I guess you want your money's worth. Raven and Nick get along so well I'm simply came to that he won't let himself be with her. She's so dorky and willing to mug for the camera choose him; Raven would certainly be cute cheering from the sidelines as Nick continues to be a reality TV "star" on Dancing With the Stars.

THE BACHELOR - "Episode 2110" - The compelling live three-hour tv occasion will certainly begin through America watching in addition to the studio audience, as Nick Viall's journey to find love concerns its astonishing conclusion. Find out if Nick gets his happy ending on the seakid finale of "The Bachelor," MONDAY, MARCH 13 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Netjob-related. (ABC/Terhi Tuovinen)NICK VIALL, RAVENTerhi TuovinenThey sip tea and snuggle by the fire, the photo of residential bliss, and then the BEST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED ON THIS SHOW HAPPENS: Nick brings Raven Huskies puppies.


Content

It need to be noted that Huskies have actually been my #1 favorite sort of dog ever before because I witnessed Balto.


Content

Raven, unprefer other woguys might (ahem, Vanessa), supplies their evening chat to reassure Nick and listen to him and say how much she loves him and is committed to him. If you are not Team Raven in this minute you're a crazy person! They're in love!


OK, now my guess is that Andi and also Kaitlyn are there, and also it's a substantial letdvery own.

There is a chic bald womale seated right next to wright here Chris Harrikid is standing. She is a lot more exciting than this episode.


Nick is choosing a ring. He's acquired it dvery own to 2. (Get it? The rings are prefer the women...) Moving on, Vanessa is goddamn crying aget. Raven is just prefer, put a ring on it already. Nick sums up his instance thusly: "If I propose to Raven, she will say yes and I will be happy. If I propose to Vanessa, she can say no because we aren't ready to get married. To whom should I propose?"

First comes Raven, that delivers a sweet and also sincere monologue around exactly how Nick has stolen her heart and also is the male of her dreams. But that cares! He's not in love. I fell for the misstraight, every little thing is a lie, this present is devastating, and also I hate Nick. I hope he gets voted off DWTS at an early stage and hregarding get counseling from Taylor. Nick cries prefer a baby, and Raven remains poised and graceful favor the adorable princess she is. Go discover someone worthy of you, Raven!

OK, now my guess is that Chris Harrichild adopts a Huskies puppy.

Thinking around his love for Vanessa is physically painful for Nick, so he knows for certain that it's true love. Nick provides a somewhat convincing spiel around falling in love via Vanessa; she smiles; they cry; they are holding hands and also rocking earlier and also forth; it's weird. Surpclimb, surpincrease, he made a decision the huge ring. She states yes!


Nick cannot stop poignant Vanessa's butt. In his defense, it's a really good butt.

PT II: AFTER THE FINAL ROSE...


Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad sophisticated right into smiling / By thegrave and also stern decorum of the countenance it wore / “Though thy crestbe shorn and also shaven, thou,” I sassist, “art certain no craven / Ghastly grimand ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore/ Tell me what thylordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore!” / Quoth the Raven“Nevereven more.”

-an excerpt from a poem that I composed about Raven Gates from The Bachelor


LIVE from the molten core of the Earth, Chris Harriboy hosts a reunion of the major players. He additionally says tbelow will be a surprise that will "knock your Spanx off." Chris Harrikid, you moron, the totality allude of Spanx is that they don't come off. I guess the various other suggest of Spanx is to enpressure a heteronormative Western beauty traditional. Anymeans, Nick is back and truly does not seem favor a male in love.

Now Raven is here also, looking fairly pretty. She describes that she was "stoic" once Nick let her go bereason she was processing. A excellent answer, however I also would certainly have actually welcomed that she's a grown womale who is able to not have a tantrum as soon as she doesn't acquire her method. Raven agrees to show up on Bachelor in Paradise this summer.

Now Vanessa is right here, glum as ever. She hadn't watched a complete seaboy of the show before she signed up for it, which makes feeling. She didn't acquire what the point was.


Apparently she still lives in Canada, and he's below in 'Murica. They've been together for the last few days, and that's been..."busy!" This is honestly bleak. Chris asks the two of them about their fears. I go into a coma. Vanessa announces that she is starting a charity for people living via disabilities to finish silence. Chris Harrikid mentions that Nick will certainly quickly show up on Dancing With the Stars, to applause. I am still comatose via boredom.


Oh, however currently RRRRRrrrrRRRRachel is here! Wearing a jumpsuit with a cape? LIKE BATMAN. She involved slay, and no, Chris Harriboy, she is not upcollection about Nick. She is not even that happy around Nick. She is much, far previous Nick. Nick is a dot to her!

But on to that much-hyped surpincrease....it's that she meets some of her fellas. Man, this franchise is eager to move on from Nick. With 12 minutes left, Rachel is about to satisfy "a few of the guys" from the upcoming seachild. Did anyone guess this? Wait, let me rephrase: Did anyone guess that the surpincrease was going to be this silly? This is silly.

The initially 2 guys Rachel meets are supercute! And...that is what we recognize about them. The third male she meets claims he is "ready to go black" and will certainly "never go ago." Rachel laughs. I am uncomfortable! The fourth guy is cute additionally.

*Parting Thoughts: The Bachelor is interesting the method staring at your reflection in the mirror when you're drunk is amazing, which is to say it's fascinating but embarrassing if you're recorded doing it.
