Rachel was visibly upset from the fight, and the pressures of being the first African American bachelorette was starting to weigh heavily on her.
Rachel and a handsome suitor embrace the oyster culture of Bluffton, S.C. After the rose ceremony, Rachel and the remaining bachelors head to Oslo, Norway, where she and one lucky guy rappel down a giant Olympic ski jump.
Rachel told the producer she was feeling incredible pressure as the first black Bachelorette.
“You know exactly what I mean”, Dean replied. “I don’t at all”.
During Monday night’s show, which I watched while wearing my best Chrissy Teigen gif face, Lindsay was a bag full of tears after the most weird AF cocktail party with her male contestants. After that, the Bachelorette packed up her beaus and headed to Hilton Head, South Carolina. Rachel was thrilled there hadn’t been any arguments and even Peter admitted he had “an unexpectedly good time”.
During the boat/spelling bee group date (don’t ask us who planned that), Iggy called out Josiah during his one-on-one time with Rachel. and then made a decision to tell Josiah about it.
Later, on a boat group date, the guys engaged in a push up contest and Kenny and Peter performed impromptu rap songs.
In any event, woe is Rachel Lindsay, for putting her love life on display a second time around. “You’re so lovely, you are made out of all gold and you mean so much to me”. After several were eliminated for failing to properly spell words including coitus, champagne and boudoir, Josiah won. She expressed concern that she would likely come under criticism from the black community over her choices at the rose ceremony. Not only did he volunteer to Rachel that Josiah was “a pariah” among the other men – out of some weird, self-righteous sense of “protecting” Rachel – he then told Josiah he’d been talking smack about him.
As Rachel heard their raised voices, Kenny accused Lee of being a liar.
Caucasian southern singer/songwriter Lee has been stirring the pot in the house and viewers saw his feud with black pro wrestler Kenny reaching full boil.
Rachel bonded with Peter and Eric and then Iggy was up to bat.
“I knew Kenny was a butthole”, Lee said after. But afterward, Kenny was “messed up” because he felt Rachel’s “body language was very much in Lee’s corner”. Then Lee spent his free time bad mouthing Kenny, calling him “aggressive”, which is pretty coded and gross.
“Blood’s gonna be shed, it’s freakin’ me the hell out”, predicted Adam. Later, Rachel takes bitter rivals on the dreaded two-on-one date.
