'Bachelorette' Recap: Kaitlyn's Picks Leave Everyone Unhappy

TEARS TEARS TEARS TEARS. Tears because Ben H. left and tears because Kaitlyn obviously made a terrible mistake and tears because how could she ever be happy with two guys who made her (and me) cry so much. Sorry. I love Kaitlyn, but GIRL. Ben H. was a treasure.


Let's focus on the positives for now: We got to see Shawn basically naked, which was pretty fun. Actually, I think it's fair to say that was the most enjoyable golf-related activity I've ever participated in. (Is it fair to call that participation if I was just sitting on my couch? Discuss.)

Another positive was the whole donkey scenario, because it reminded me how much donkeys look like demons. That's a good thing to keep in mind at all times.

This week was also hometown dates, which, if you had asked me about a day ago, I would have said is the best week of the season. But this time around, it was sort of ... meh.

More from The StirQuiz: Which 'Bachelorette' Are You?

First, it looked like they flew the familes out to Ireland (what is it with Ireland this season?!) instead of having Kaitlyn and the crew go to them. This means that it wasn't as terrifying for Kaitlyn or as enjoyable for us, because we didn't get to see Shawn and Nick in their elements and Kaitlyn decidedly out of hers.

Also, the families weren't as harsh as they usually are, which was no fun. I thought we were going to get a little disapproval from Nick's mom (or 17 siblings, God) or maybe even Shawn's dad, but NOPE. Kaitlyn's adorable charm won them over.

But we've gotta say, if it comes down to kissing, Nick is the winner in our hearts. All this talk about "connection" with Shawn, but doesn't it feel like her connection with Nick is stronger??

I dunno, guys. Nick and Shawn hate each other SO MUCH, and it is going to be such a delight to watch them fight it out. Hopefully we'll get that soon, because all these non-fights so far are SO unsatisfying.

Well. We'll see. And next week? Next week is Men Tell All. Get at us, Ben H.
