Corn Chowder

I’ve held my tongue all season, but I can hold my tongue no longer!

That was the most predictable finale in the history of the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise.

I can say this because I am a certified Bach expert and I would beat all of you in a Bachelor quiz.

I can also say this because I read spoilers and knew exactly what was going to happen.  I’m sorry, I don’t understand how people can just ~not~ read them when they are available. It’s like not shaking the Christmas presents that are under the tree. I gotta get a feel for what I’m about to get myself into, ya dig? Anyways, I do this before every season so I can watch the love story unfold. There are typically like 1-2 surprises, though. Like, my spoiler source can’t know every detail, right? WRONG. He hit the nail on the head every daggum time. Not a twist or a turn in the whole kit and caboodle.

Honestly, in this moment, I’m not sure I’ve ever trusted anyone more than my spoiler source.

    Loving all the veggies in this!!

    And yes. So predictable. Usually I accidentally read a spoiler in a comment, but didn’t this season and didn’t really need to! I don’t really think I was digging either one of the final two to be honest!

    Rach, might I suggest using the spent cobs for corn stock? You’ll get a bigger corn punch in your soup… I just can not bring myself to watch any of those TV programs, Bachelor/Dancing/Housewifes, sorry ^_^
