‘The Bachelorette’: Michelle Young Sends Two Villains Home, Who Will Become the Next Villain?
The Bachelorette wouldn’t be the same without the villains. Of course, their antics are annoying and distract from the whole lead finding their true love thing, but all Bachelorette fans know that without a good villain, two hours of tv a week can get a little stale. Normally, the leads keep at least one villain around for a few weeks, either because they are oblivious to their villain ways or the producers force them to. Michelle Young, on the other hand, sent two villains home last night. So, where will we get our drama fix going forward?
The Will vs. Peter drama continued
[Warning: This episode contains spoilers for The Bachelorette]
Peter Izzo and Will Urena have had it out for each other since their first group date. That drama continued on last night’s group date. The men were first tasked with getting in a g-force flight simulator and professing their love to Michelle while spinning around, trying not to throw up. Peter spoke to Michelle in Italian during his turn. Later, Will, whether by choice or just his default, ended up speaking to Michelle in Spanish as he barely retained his lunch.
This angered Peter, who apparently has the market cornered on speaking anything other than English. Next, the men had to get physical. They were paired up and tasked with pushing their partners off of a platform. Of course, Will and Peter were pitted against one another. Will ended up knocking Peter off easily every round. He won the competition as a whole and was given a jacket.
Later, Peter turned his villain nature up about five notches, stole Will’s jacket, and threw it in the pool. When the men confronted him about it, Peter basically told them to mind their business. He was later sent home at the rose ceremony, despite none of the men telling Michelle about jacket-gate.
Jamie gets sent home on ‘The Bachelorette’
Later, it was finally revealed that Jamie was the one who told Michelle that all of the men were doubting her character because they thought she and Joe Coleman were already in a relationship.
“That couldn’t have been anything farther from the truth because I’ve gotten close with all the guys here, none of them was ever questioning your character,” Rick Leach told Michelle. “I feel like that person could’ve done it for a few reasons, like trying to earn your trust and also trying to help themselves and put other people under the bus.”
When Michelle confronted Jamie, he made something else up.
“It was the open speculation in the house of people talking about the potential of you knowing each other that essentially created its own monster that had the potential to challenge both characters longterm,” he said.
Ultimately, Michelle felt that she could no longer trust Jamie and walked him out before the rose ceremony even began.
Who is left to stir up the drama on ‘The Bachelorette’?
Though the two men who had been villains so far were sent home that doesn’t mean that the drama is over. When one villain falls, another always rises.
In the previews for the rest of the season, it looks like Chris Sutton picks up the villain title.
“There are guys here that think they have it in the bag,” he says in the clip. “I think that’s bullsh*t.”
Later, men can be heard calling Chris a snake and saying that he threw them all under the bus. At one point in the promo, it looks like Nayte Olukoya might even get physical with Chris.
So, don’t worry friends, more drama is around the corner.
The Bachelorette airs on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
