RON CLARK wins the loved ones reward challenge and picks Gavin and Julie to get the reward. Victoria and Lauren scheme, in case Rick has a hidden immunity idol (he does!).

Gavin, using Aurora’s 2nd vote, and Lauren vote for RON CLARK, Rick votes for Aurora, and everyone else votes for Rick. RON CLARK is shocked! But he is finally sent to The Edge. What will happen this week is anyone’s guess, so let’s find out!
Bachelor Nation, this break between The Bachelor and The Bachelorette every year is always a long one. Monday nights have been a little less special, with a little less wine. But finally May is upon us, and so is Hannah’s season of The Bachelorette. We have never been so ready for something since the final season of Game of Thrones. So let’s get straight into judging the crop of men ABC has chosen for our girl.
Note: Our usual Bachelor recapper and superfan Susan is MIA because she’s in the middle of moving. But never fear. Our good friend Bonnie is back (your might remember her from judging the ladies of Colton’s season), and we also have a BONUS guest Chloe who is also here to share her thoughts, judgment, and disdain. Enjoy!Read More
