Recap of Episode 7 The Bachelor Canada 2...The Hometown Dates/Special Halloween Episode!

It's down to the wire. Tim gets to meet the families of his Final Four potential Mrs. Warmels. Or should I say, potential ex-fiancees. The preview emphasizes the "Lisa problem" is still very much alive. Tim is troubled, and says he has to go with his gut feelings. This leads us to believe he is going to cut Lisa loose this week. So why do I get the feeling it will be Sachelle who is eliminated?

Recap of The Bachelor Canada 2 Episode 6: What the Hell is Going on Here?

So....about last night.You're probably asking yourself, "Just what the hell is going on here?" Well I will tell you. It's got more to do with production-driven drama and less with Tim's journey to find love. Oh and a touch of sponsor product placement. That's what the hell is going on.

Recap of Episode 5 The Bachelor Canada

Okay, it's no secret that The Bachelor can be, well...producer driven. It's about as close to scripted as a reality show can get while still being called Reality TV. Of course there is no script, but the handlers (read: Directors) don't need one when plot points and characterization are ingrained in their head. We usually see several of these every season. I thought the previous episode was obvious with Natalie as 'the girl who leaves' and Lisa as 'the mean girl'. But hold on folks, this episode was over the top. It's like they aren't even trying anymore. Just pack as much drama as possible into the short one hour Canadian version. Geesh.

Recap of The Bachelor Canada 2 Episode 4: The Cabana Tour '14 Part 2.

Yes, the Tim Warmels Cabana Tour '14 continues this week with Tim and the girls heading off to the Bahamas. There are only 8 girls left, so maybe production can afford to get them a few rooms before they die from exposure, heat-exhaustion or melanoma.

Recap of The Bachelor Canada 2 Episode 3: The one where the crazy bitch goes to the Bachelor's room.

Tim and his 12 remaining prospective Mrs. Timbits travel to Los Cabos, Mexico where they get to stay at the Hyatt Ziva. The filming annoyed a lot of tourists who thought they were going to have a nice, quiet vacation. Apparently the girls spent most of their time in the cabana, while the film crew spent most of their time keeping curious onlookers away. The tweets that came out were hilarious. Some people thought it was exciting, some complained of the noise and inconvenience and some thought the guy looked like a douche.

Recap of The Bachelor Canada 2: Episode 2 The Estrogen Games Begin

Fifteen girls remain after the mass elimination of the opening night meet and greets. There is one 1-on-1 date, one 11-on-1 and one 4-on-1 group dates, and by the time the estrogen stops flowing, only 12 girls will remain. Good times.
