It’s getting to crunch time in The Bachelor world, so we already know that every episode from now on is going to be drama central. Last night we saw Elly evicted for spending more time worrying about Abbie than Matt, which leaves us down to five girls for tonight’s serving of beef.
But tonight was the long-awaited hometown dates, which in my humble opinion is when you really start to get to know the girls. Matt meets their family and finally gets to see them outside of the glammed-up mansion they pretend is their real life.
There were a few l-bombs from Abbie and Emma, and of course, Chelsie worried about whether she’s going to get hurt. But HELENA. Phwoah! Helena was the real drama queen of this episode. Here’s a tweet from jussssttttt before shit hit the fan. A simpler time.
On her home date, Matt forgot that one time she spoke French on the first date and she lost her fucking marbles. Obviously, Twitter thought it was hilarious because we had all forgotten too.
Helena I don't remember what I asked my tutor at uni yesterday let alone what someone said to me 6 weeks ago please don't read into it #BachelorAu— Katie (@Clockwork_Katie) September 12, 2019
Helena is a ball breaker. He met so many girls on the same night, and he's under pressure with your family. Relax. #BachelorAU— Jayde Mills (@jaydeskittle) September 12, 2019
Then she dumped his ass. Girl power? Or pathetic overreaction?
Helena looking for any excuse right now. Pretty sure her Mum just wants her to move out and would support the Honey Badger if it came down to it. #BachelorAU— cheyron (@cheyron4) September 12, 2019
Matt comes grovelling back wanting her to love him so he can add her to the list of five girls he might want to date. She forgives him, then she dumps him again. Everyone was obviously confused.
Then, when you thought she was out of the picture for good, she comes back right before the roses are given out to stir some more shit.
Helena going for the trifecta of break ups #TheBachelorAU— Emily Daniels (@pineappleemily) September 12, 2019
The girls weren’t happy, and Twitter lived for it.
is chelsie the only one who isn't going to be a see you next tuesday about this? #TheBachelorAU— taryn ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง (@thereafter) September 12, 2019
Emma is not playing, she did not give up her aging uterus for this #TheBachelorAU— Kiera (@UnderYourPorch) September 12, 2019
She forgives him again and ultimately gets a rose. Was this all a ploy to do the whole “treat ’em mean, keep ’em keen” thing? I hope so. Helena seems like a force to be reckoned with, or is she just a drama plot?
Also, everyone fucking hates Matt’s dumb suit.
Who dresses this man? #TheBachelorAU— Andrei Wightman (@andrei73) September 12, 2019
Don't accept a rose from anyone dressed in a suit like that…#TheBachelorAU— Alison (@alijcoles) September 12, 2019
Sadly, Emma cops the boot. That’s what you get for being an emotionally open person who isn’t trying to fuck around and cause drama. Gosh Emma.
And that’s everything Twitter had to say about episode 14 of The Bachelor. I need to sit down, or drink. I’m not quite sure yet. Feeling a little queasy after that roller coaster.
See ya next week, folks!
