7 Moments To Catch Up On From The Premiere Of 'The Bachelorette' If You Missed It

"You've just blown up "The Bachelorette"..." -Chris Harrison

Clare Crawley

"The Bachelorette" is back!! With a ...whole...lot...of...changes. No travel. No Mondays. No Bachelor Mansion. Nonetheless, this season is certain to be a good one. After tonight's two-hour premiere episode, there are quite a few thoughts, theories, and major takeaways buzzing around.


Clare and Dale


First and foremost, let's address Clare's instant connection with Dale Moss. The 32-year-old football player from South Dakota instantly stunned Clare from the second he stepped out of the limo.

As he walked away from her, the first thing she said to Chris, "I think I just met my husband!" So, did she? Of course, he earned the first impression rose! Rumor has it they end up together and her season abruptly ends with the two of them living happily ever after.

They clearly had some chemistry together, and there's no doubt it will continue throughout the show.

The return of the salmon jacket

Salmon Jacket


The men from Hannah B's season were some real trendsetters because the salmon jacket is back. Eazy, a sports marketing agent from California, stepped out of the limo sporting the trendy suit, and my only question is...will it be passed around throughout the cast this season like it was for Hannah B's?

Aaaand the first kiss goes to Blake!

Blake and Clare


What a sweetie! I think he has the potential to go pretty far and become a fan favorite. Plus, he reached out to her before the show to check in during quarantine! Even though Clare set it straight that it was "against the rules," she really appreciated the gesture and we will probably be seeing a lot more of him in the future.

Tyler C. versus Yosef

The second Tyler C. pulled Yosef aside to address the fact that he knew Yosef had been dm'ing girls on Instagram, my reaction was "I smell a 2 on 1 in the making!" but that quickly ended when Tyler C. was sent home. See ya in Paradise! He clearly doesn't have the same charm as another Tyler C. Bachelor Nation knows and loves…

The. Dogs.

After a long hard day, sometimes you just need to hug a dog to make everything better. Clare's dogs are on set and the one clearly stole the show tonight. Maybe her dogs will act as her support system throughout the journey. Step aside, Chris Harrison, the doggos got it from here.


Rolls Royce


I don't think he will be sticking around too long. He didn't get too much airtime tonight, but after watching seasons and seasons of this show, it gets easier and easier to tell who will be around longer than others. Clare knows what she wants, she's not messing around and Bennett will be driving his fancy Rolls Royce back to New York soon enough.

Predicted fan favorites

While eating Pillsbury pumpkin cookies and discussing some fast favorites with my friends after the show, we are all in agreement that Brandon, Chasen, and Blake M. will stick around the longest. Just look at them! Or, they'll at least become fan favorites that we will be seein' in Paradise. We also loved Mike, a digital media advisor from Canada, but he got the boot during the rose ceremony.

This season is going to be an interesting one! When will it transition into Tayshia? Will there be any other girls involved? What about the cast of men? We just have to wait and see. Tonight was just a little taste into what the next few months will look like for Bachelor Nation.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
