Watching someone waver with indecision when there’s absolutely no reason to be on the fence is incredibly boring. JoJo Fletcher only sent home two guys on Monday night’s (June 27), episode of “The Bachelorette” when she should’ve sent home four. We hate to say it, but JoJo has lost her mojo.
First, she sent home Wells. Oh … poor, Wells. First, he gets razzed for being the only guy who hasn’t yet made out with JoJo which, when you think about it, is really weird. Why are the other guys getting upset he hasn’t made out with their would-be girlfriend? And then once Wells finally does lock lips with her, she sends him packing.
This entire segment with Wells was so awkward to watch, it was actually painful. He was incredibly nervous during this one-on-one date. He even needed to take off his jacked due to all the sweating, as he discussed why his last relationship failed. Aside from having zero chemistry with JoJo, Wells put the final nail in the coffin when he admitted he doesn’t really believe in that “unicorn” kind of love JoJo is hoping to find.
And then there’s ultimate nice guy James Taylor. Having serious confidence issues around all these classically good looking guys, it’s evident his insecurity is doing him no favors. There’s really no need to point out you’re not as handsome as, say, Jordan Rodgers.
“What does that mean?,” JoJo responds, mirroring the exact thought of everyone watching. Please, do tell … nobody’s all in on Jordan Rodgers.
Come on, James. We’re all rooting for you to be the nice guy that finishes first. Confidence is one of the sexiest attributes a man can have. James better get it together or his next rose ceremony is going to be his last.
Chase McNary and Derek Peth are assigned the dreadful two-on-one date with JoJo which was so boring. One of them would’ve had to actually catch on fire to liven up these tango dancing lessons. Dare we say, a bean bag has more personality than both of these guys combined.
Like Vinny, we keep forgetting Chase is even there. There’s nothing memorable about him. On the other hand of this snoozefest of a date, is Derek. You know, the guy people can only remember because he looks just like Jim Halpert from “The Office.” JoJo decides to keep Chase around, which was her first bad decision of the night. She should’ve sent them both packing.
Same sentiment applies to the final rose ceremony. She’s not going to end up with Alex. And let’s be real, she’s not going to end up with James Taylor either. How JoJo was able to convince the show’s producers to let her keep them both on is questionable. Quinn from “UnReal” would have never let this happen. This is bad TV. Audiences are drowning in boredom.
These personality-less guys seem to be dragging JoJo’s spirit down with them. Or maybe the stress of being the series decision maker is weighing too heavily on her. Either way, audiences miss that confident spitfire of a woman we met during the season premiere. Let’s bring her back, shall we?
“The Bachelorette” airs on Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
