Bachelor Recap: In it to Twin It

Welcome to week 4 of The Bachelor. Ben and the girls are off to Las Vegas. They’re PUMPED!

Ben keeps saying that people find love in Vegas. I’m not so sure about that.

They might be in a new location, but things haven’t changed. Olivia is still cocky as ever, and I still can’t tell the twins apart.

Ben welcomes the ladies to Vegas with a huge lit-up sign. They all squeal and jump around.

Leah “feels like a baller” staying in such a nice hotel. The twins are excited about the hotel gym where they use the treadmill together (weird).

Jojo gets the first date card! Smart move, Ben.

A helicopter arrives for Ben and Jojo. The girls back at the hotel know it’s for Ben and Jojo. HOW DO THEY KNOW!?!?!?

The girls watch the couple kiss and make lots of BLECH noises. Really? You think he only kisses you? You’re right. Yep, that’s how the show works.

Ben and Jojo go have some alone time to talk. Jojo is excited to open up.

Jojo tells Ben ALL about her past relationship and how it affected her. Ben is so understanding. Wow. Ben rocks.

Jojo has no hesitation about being with Ben even though she just broke up with her boyfriend five months ago. Her ex sounds like a DOUCHE by the way. You don’t need him, Jojo!

JOJO GETS A ROSE! Ben says he is falling for her. I LOVE THIS!

There are fireworks. I could never be on this show. Fireworks are terrifying not romantic.

That was a short and simple date. It was kind of boring but I love them so whatever.


Now, it’s time for the group date.

Olivia is mad she has a group date. She thinks Ben is her husband.

On the date, each of the women must come up with a special talent to preform live on stage. These dates always give me secondhand embarrassment. It’s very rare The Bachelor casting directors find women with actual talent.

“Crap. I have no talent”

-Lauren B.

It’s ok, Lauren B., you aren’t alone. Olivia doesn’t have a talent either. At all. Not an ounce.

Jubilee plays the cello. The twins do some kind of Irish dance.

See for yourself:

So much awkwardness… and the awkwardness continues through the entire episode.

Then, Olivia has a panic attack. There’s one every season…

Olivia should’ve done a dramatic monologue for her talent. That’s right up her alley.

The group heads off to a cocktail party. Rachel is “focused.” Who is Rachel? Yeah, no idea.

Ben calls Caila a tigress. I’m uncomf.

Lauren B. is scared because she’s in love with Ben. Good thing she gets the group date rose to make her feel more secure.


A date card AND wedding dress (?!?!??!) arrive for Becca.

They meet up at the famous “Little White Wedding Chapel”. Ben gets down on one knee and I get jealous because I want Ben to marry me.

No worries though, Becca and Ben aren’t getting married. Ben has gotten ordained and they officiate a few weddings together. Becca doesn’t get a ring, but she gets a rose.

This is a boring date. In fact, it’s the second boring one-on-one of this episode.

Then, Ben takes Becca to the neon sign museum? Uh….ok?

Ben tells Becca he loves that she’s a virgin because it makes her good at committing. Becca is jazzed that Ben is so into it. They write vows for each other. So cheesy, but it’s cute.


SURPRISE! It’s time for a two-on-one date and guess who will be on it… THE TWINS! THE MOMENT I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR ALL SEASON.

Ben says it’s hard dating the twins. I feel ya, Ben. Twins are confusing.

I know he can’t tell them apart. STOP PRETENDING, BEN!

The twins haven’t shut up this whole episode about how they’re from Vegas. Ben takes them to their house. He meets their mom, who looks just like them, but most importantly their dachshunds.

The girls show Ben their rooms full of glitter skulls, photos of ex-boyfriends, and Victoria’s Secret PINK body spray. Ben talks to their mom and asks for some advice.

See it all here:

Ben sends Haley home in front of her mom and sister. AWKWARD!!!


At the cocktail party, Jen (still not sure who she is) grabs Ben right away. The girls cheer because I don’t think Jen and Ben have talked.

Olivia quickly swoops in and Jen leaves. One of the girls regrets not tripping her.

Why don’t these girls just say “Sorry, we’re in the middle of talking. Can you come back in a second?” Is that like not allowed?

Olivia continues digging herself into a hole by talking to Ben AGAIN. Ben is over her; you can see it in his eyes. Well Olivia can’t tell, but what’s new?

Jubilee is insecure again. Good thing Ben is good at pep talks!

Rose ceremony time. The girls are nervous!!!! WHO WILL STAY? WHO WILL GO?

Lauren H.

Lauren is my favorite this week because she’s silly and real, which is shocking on this show. Also, she wore a chicken suit. Obviously, she’s my fav!


This episode took forever. I hope this season picks up next week.
