As the time goes on, things only get more heated. The drama within the guy's increases, causing the audience to question whether or not they should put certain people with Rachel. Last night had everyone on edge as a cat known as Lexi spilled from DeMario’s bag of secrets. But besides that, there were some memorable moments from this week to highlight.

Going black and never going back

The two had a good heart to heart about his confidence upon their first meeting. Their date seemed to have gone well as Dean takes her heart and takes home a rose.

Palm Springs with Peter

Rachel takes Peter on a one on one with a bit of a surprise: her dog Copper. The three of them board a plane and go to Palm Springs where they get some well-earned rest and relaxation. What better way to relax than at a doggy and me spa! The three go to a dog spa where not only the dogs can get some r&r, but so can Rachel and Peter. The day with Copper continues, as the family of three goes to a nice candlelit dinner. Rachel feels an amazing chemical attraction that goes beyond the fact they both have a gap in their front teeth. She saw something in Peter, which gave him a rose.

They’re playing Basketball

Tie up your Jordan’s because this date is all about teamwork. They took their time to practice, messing around on the court. DeMario made sure to show Rachel he was an all-star, dunking any chance he got. That is until NBA legend Kareem Abdul Jabar comes out as a coach. He comes to give advice to the boys and to Rachel as well about love’s correlation to basketball.

After an interesting practice, a 5 on 5 game was played to see who would come out on top. There was effort but as Rachel said: “There are more air balls than shots.” Despite that, it was a good effort by all the men.

DeMario the D-O-G-G

Not as cool or as smooth as Snoop Dogg himself. There were two dogs in today’s episodes when the girlfriend of a previous past comes back to haunt not only Rachel but also everyone else in the house. It turns out that DeMario had a secret relationship with Lexie, who was not afraid to let Rachel know the truth. Just when we all thought DeMario was a good contender, his lies got exposed. I don’t think anyone saw that coming.

Bryan the smooth operator (and chiropractor)

After coming back to the house for another rose ceremony and to spend time with the other men, Bryan makes no effort to sweep her away for some one on one time. Being good with his hands, he pulls out his skills as a chiropractor to keep her calm and relaxed.

DeMario making a return

Leaving us with a cliffhanger, DeMario comes back, pleading to security so he can speak with Rachel. Her time with Fred gets interrupted, bringing out Chris Harrison from the woodworks long before the rose ceremony.

The art of the WHAAABOOOOM

Of course, the episode couldn’t end without learning the making of a perfect whaboom.

“Three A’s. Four O’s. Nothing more, nothing less”

What do you think is going to happen when Rachel goes to talk with DeMario? Will DeMario turn psycho? Comment below what you think?

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it

Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

The Football World Loses One Of Its Finest Players

Bart Starr passed away and NFL players, coaches, and fans all mourn the loss of the Packer legend, but his life and career will live on in hearts of Packer nation forever.

Bart Starr passed away at the age of 85 in Birmingham, Alabama. The NFL lost a great player. The Green Bay Packers lost a hero. And, the world lost a true gentleman. Starr's legacy has surpassed his accomplishments on the gridiron. He inspired not only his peers but the generations that have come after him. He is — and always — will be remembered as a Hall of Famer, a champion, and a Packer.


Bart Starr was a Packers legend. Starr led Green Bay to six division titles and five world championships. As the quarterback of Vince Lombardi's offense, he kept the machine going and executed the plays like no other. His mastery of the position was a large part of the Packers success in the 1960s. Starr was also the perfect teammate for the perfect team. His leadership put him in command of the Packers. Starr's time in Green Bay will not be forgotten by former players, coaches, and the fans.

Bart Starr's resume is rivaled by few in NFL history. He played in 10 postseason games and won 9 of them. He led the Packers to victory in Super Bowls I and II and won the MVP award in both games. He was the MVP of the league in 1966 and was named to the NFL All-Decade Team of the 1960s. The Packers retired his number 15 and Starr has been inducted into the Packers and Pro Football Hall of Fame.


After his playing days, Starr would become the head coach of the Packers. He could not repeat the success he had on the field from the 1960s teams. His coaching years do not take away from his legacy as one of the all-time great Packers. Starr was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977.

One of Starr's last visits to Lambeau field was on a cold November night in 2015. Starr and his wife attended a ceremony in which the Packers retired Brett Favre's jersey number. Starr was the perfect personification of what it meant to be a Packer. His most heroic moment came in the 1967 NFL Championship Game. The Ice Bowl came down to a third and goal in Lambeau Field's south endzone against the Dallas Cowboys. Starr came to the sidelines and bravely told Vince Lombardi that he can sneak it in for a game-winning touchdown. Lombardi then replied, "Run it, and let's get the hell out of here." Starr ran a quarterback sneak for the game-winner and the Packers were off to Super Bowl II. Without Starr, Green Bay would not have won a second straight Super Bowl. His leadership in big game moments will live with Packers fans for a lifetime.

Vince Lombardi: A Football Life - The Ice Bowl

Starr leaves behind his wife Cherry, his son, and three granddaughters. Packers fans will have a tight grip on the memories Bart Starr and the 60s teams created. Starr left behind a template for being a Green Bay Packer. He also left a template for being a good man and a gentleman of the game of football. He was a competitor and a leader. Packer nation mourns for the loss of one of the finest human beings the game has seen.
