The big finale kicks off with Chris Harrison touting a big "first" in Bachelor History, because the powers that be seem aware that a substantial percentage of the people watching this show are in a perpetual state of stopping any day now, and publicity stunts like having Rachel meet four of her guys in front of a live audience have somehow proven to be a fairly reliable way to keep people tuned in.
I'm sorry for the increasing delays doing these! I've found that being out of town for an opera was actually better, not worse, for my recaps' punctuality because my love and social lives ranged from pathetic to nonexistent. Now that I'm back home, it's been tough to find that groove again. Plus, this week in particular I got majorly bogged down by the fashion section. 🙄 Thank you for your understanding!
