The Bachelor 2017 Fantasy League Breakdown | Episode 3 Recap | Babble


Hi everyone, and welcome to another week
of Bachelor Fantasy Breakdown. I’m your host, Megan,
one of the Babble editors. And I’m Alex from Oh My Disney. How’d you do in Fantasy this week? Terribly. Absolutely terrible. I’m not even mad about it though
because we got to see The Backstreet Boys. ♪ I want it that way ♪ [cheers] Let’s talk about our favorite Nick…
Carter. No, just kidding. One question I nailed this week was,
if someone would throw up on their date. Which, I said was true. Aww, no. I have to say that I was really touched
by how casual Nick was about zero-gravity vomit. I thought it really showed
a softer side of him. I think that he should have
given her personal space. If I were sick, I wouldn’t want someone
right on top of me, comforting me. I liked it.
I thought it was cute. Also, her hair looked fantastic. But the one-on-one date was also
when I realized for the first time, that Vanessa looks just like
a young Julia Roberts, circa Pretty Woman. Big mistake! Huge! That’s what he can say to her
if he doesn’t give her a rose. The one-on-one date is also
where we saw Nick cry for the first time, which was…weird. Today you made me feel
very optimistic about this. I think Vanessa just really brings out
the best in everyone. She actually moved up
in my power rankings this week. I know we’re going to get to that but… I mean, she made him cry. Another question that I got right was, whether or not they would
meet Olympic athletes on a date. How did you possibly get that question right? That is ridiculous. That was pure, gut reaction. I just felt that it was weird enough
for Nick, to be true. Last, but not least,
speaking of questions I got wrong this week, I really wanted Nick to do a pizza party
and he did a pool party. No. Always a pool party.
Always a pool party. Such an easy choice. But, what was with the bouncy house? I have something up my sleeve
to make him feel special today. Oh my gosh, right? Did Corinne’s nanny set that up? Did Raquel bring that? Final score this week: Alex is still beating me. [chuckle] But that’s all going to change. This is my week, I can feel it. Play with us. Go online to abc.com/bfl. You can join our groups
Babble and the Bach… Oh My Bachelor. Go. Play. Join. So, as you guys know,
Final Four picks are already locked, but there are new questions up each week
and we’ve got you covered. We have a handful of our favorite questions
from this week. We’re going to go through them
in the speed round. This week is the first week of travel
for the Bachelor; where do they go: Malibu, Madrid, Milwaukee, or Miami? Oooo, I hope they path for Madrid
and end up having to go to Milwaukee. This is around the same time
that JoJo took everyone to rural Pennsylvania. I would really enjoy watching the girls
try to pretend they’re having fun in Milwaukee. Milwaukee’s great. What is one Nick’s Date Card this week: “You are the mane event,” “Say cheese,”
“Can you take the heat?” “Love begins here”? Oh, I hope it’s “You are the mane event,” because I would really like them
to go horseback riding. It’s, “Say cheese,” because they’re going to Milwaukee,
because that’s my answer. Horseback riding in Milwaukee;
everyone’s dream. True or False: Someone will talk to Corinne
about her Behavior. 100% true. True. Corinne will talk to Corinne
about her behavior. Chris Harrison will probably
talk to Corinne about her behavior. No one will not talk to Corinne
about her behavior. Nick runs into his ________
while on a date this week. Liz! Kindergarten teacher, ex-girlfriend,
best friend, personal trainer? Liz! It’s not going to be Liz. By process of elimination,
because he’s going to Milwaukee, it’ll be kindergarten teacher. It’s called strategy people, c’mon. True or False: A Bachelor will take
a dip in the hot tub with Nick, this episode? -Always true.
-Always true. It’s never not true. Or, is it a trick question because he will take a dip
with multiple contestants? But it would still be true. Okay, it’s still true. Now, let’s go through
the power rankings for this week. Megan, who are your
two up, two down? Excellent question, Alex. I’m glad you asked. This week, I think that Taylor
is definitely moving up. I think this for a few reasons: she continues to be very calm
and reasonable, which I enjoy. I love that she’s a mental health professional. That is who we need in the house. And, also, given the previews for next week, you can tell
that she is set up against Corinne. Taylor versus Corinne. Also moving up for me,
is Raven. I love the way she sat Nick down
and gave him the scoop about Corinne. It needed to happen. Broke the news about the nanny. Corinne is 24– Okay. –and has a nanny. Has a what? That was one of the best moments
of the episode. His reaction,
was what all of our reaction was. Has a what? Why doesn’t she just call her
a personal assistant? Because she’s a nanny. Well, that’s true. Moving down in the rankings this week,
I think Danielle M. She barely had any time onscreen. I didn’t even see her talk to Nick. Also down in the rankings for me: Sarah. Here’s why: Sarah started the whole thing as the runner,
you know, in the runner-up, didn’t even have a showing
in the Olympic group date. Like, she didn’t even make it
to the final three. Yeah, Sarah’s my pick
for the final rose, so I hope you’re wrong. Oh, yeah.
Ugh, awkward. Well, my two up, number one, Vanessa. After that one-on-one date,
a lot of emotion there. I think that she’s rising. Also, Rachel seemed to be getting
some good one-on-one time with Nick, so I think that she’s a rising player as well. Her competitive spirit,
oh my gosh. -That girl–
-She’s in it, to win it. She is in it, to win it. Oh Rachel, my heart. Trending down for me this week; I don’t know if you guys caught it
after the credits, but Josephine’s song
was, just bad. ♪ I got to spend it with Nick ,
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah ♪ [bird squawking] Also trending down for me is Whitney
because we still have not heard her speak. Before the show started, I had Whitney as the final rose pick because I just thought that she
had a really good look and I liked her answers
in her contestant bio. But, you’re right,
she has been a “nothing” on this season. She’s already made it
much farther than I expected. Let’s do Whitney Watch this week. -Whitney Watch.
-Whitney Watch. What about you, Bachelor Nation? They’re locked, but let us know
your final picks in the comments. And make sure to tune in Mondays
at 8/7 central on ABC, to see how you did. Let’s move on to our favorite segment:
Viewing Party Tips! Oh, I like your shirt. I’ve had this. For this week’s viewing party,
we have a very special recipe for you: Corinne’s nanny’s “Cheese Pasta.” Now, what is “Cheese Pasta”? Is it pasta with cheese on top? Is it mac and cheese? We’re going to go with mac and cheese,
because “Cheese Pasta” is not a thing. It’s mac and cheese. Raquel tested, Corinne approved. A perfect snack after a late night
of planned dancing. Planned dancing. Planned dancing? What’s it called?
Choreography? Yeah. You can get the recipe in the comments below. It is so easy to make,
even Corinne could do it. Cheers. Cheers. It’s delicious. Now it’s time for the most
compelling 20 seconds of your day: Nick Pics! [stammering] Alex! I’m not doing Nick Pics. Why aren’t you doing Nick Pics? I’m strongly opposed to the Nick Pic. This week’s Nick Pic
is the Backstreet Boys Dance Sesh. 15-year-old Megan
totally wanted to pause the DVR and learn all the choreography. Why was Kevin just standing in the back
running the boom box, while everyone else was dancing? Do they not have an assistant
or a nanny? Like a–
[dance sounds]
