Who's Really To Blame For This Chaotic Season Of ‘The Bachelor?'

After watching the season finale, can we really say it is all Peter's fault?

Who's Really To Blame For This Chaotic Season Of ‘The Bachelor?'

With the latest season of 'The Bachelor' coming to a close this week, viewers would agree that this was the most unpredictable season yet.

The season finale left the audience in shock. Peter is getting a lot of hate for the way he handled everything, but I don't think it's fair to automatically point fingers at him.

Hannah Ann

Bachelor Nation definitely had their hearts with Hannah after seeing the Tuesday finale events unravel. I, and most audience members, completely agree with her hatred towards Peter. She is absolutely right that he should not have proposed to her when he clearly also loved Madison. However, I think it is reasonable to argue her fault in the situation as well. Hannah Ann should have never said yes to that proposal, and I think she only did because that is what was expected of her. Granted, Peter should have been more honest about his feelings, but he did tell her that Madison left the show two days earlier. Personally, I would have a few more follow up questions before saying yes to marriage.

Chris Harrison

The beloved Bachelor/Bachelorette host played quite a significant role in the conclusion of this season. After Hannah Ann and Peter's engagement failed, Chris went to Alabama to essentially persuade Maddie to get back together with Peter. Although Chris's matchmaker games resulted in Peter and Maddie getting back together, it raised some questions. It has been 3 months at this point since Maddie and Peter have seen one another and neither tried to contact the other even though they still apparently had feelings. So would Peter and Maddie be together if Chris had not interjected? And did he do all of this just to get a dramatic reality TV ending? We love you Chris, but let them figure out their own shit.

Barbara Weber

I don't think a family member has ever caused as much turmoil on 'The Bachelor' than the infamous Barb. Known for her delirious crying and obsession with Hannah Ann, she also brutally ridiculed Madison in the season finale. Bachelor Nation has been left wondering if Peter's decision to propose to Hannah Ann was largely impacted by his mother's opinion. I don't think Peter was ever fully ready to commit to Hannah Ann when his relationship with Madison remained unresolved, but family will cause you to do some unexpected (and not always right) things.

Peter has clearly made a lot of mistakes this season but it is clear that he cannot be entirely to blame. He has received a lot of backlash from Bachelor Nation, but this finale really proved how seriously he was taking the show and how many factors were involved in its conclusion.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.

When my college announced that we would be having the fall 2020 semester on-campus, I was pretty excited. After six months of living at home with my parents with nothing to do, my study abroad trip in May canceled, and my 21st birthday plans down the drain, going back to campus meant that I would regain some of my individuality and see my friends again. But since we've returned, it has not been as fun as I had hoped my senior year of college would be.

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).
