Has anyone else been watching? I haven't really been. We put my newborn to bed at 8:30, which is right around the time things start getting good. All I know is that the girl I found most attractive got sent home last night (Danielle), and Corinne is awesome.

I know I said I'd do a Bachelor fantasy league for you guys, but the newborn thing put a damper on that.

I have been watching vigilantly the last few weeks, as much as Nick annoys and frustrates me.

I've been watching! I like Corinne but it's easy to see why everyone hates her. I dig Ravens accent, and I'm excited about the new bacherolette. Kinda hate Nick though, even though I had an open mind going into the season, bc the dude cannot not think with his d

I've been watching too. Nick cries too much and seems incredibly insincere. I just can't get past feeling that he knows, based on his three past dips in the pool, what makes good tv and is hellbent on giving it to us. He knows just what to do and say for maximum drama and impact. So....I find him really kind of gross.

I do wish he would pick Corinne because they seem made for each other. There are a lot of really really likable women this time around (with the exception of Corinne, imo) which makes me feel badly for them when they get sent home.

If he picks Corinne, though, she can't go on Bachelor in Paradise, and that would be a tragedy.

All of Linda Holmes' writings about this show on are absolutely terrific. She nails all of it.

Also, Corinne's way of interacting with the world is refreshing as hell. My life would have been a lot more awesome if I had had, at 23, her chutzpah and ability to so directly ask for what I want.

I think Raven will be Nick's chosen one, though I could see Nick having some sort of existential crisis, collapsing into a puddle of tears, then declaring that reality TV is just the wrong way to find Twue Wuv.

Nick is terrible. I think he hasn't realized it yet, but it seems like it's a heck of a lot easier to fall in love with one girl when you're surrounded by 20 dudes singing her praises constantly, than 1 of 20 different girls you see in short ten minute chunks.
