IF you don’t want to hear about the new season of the Bachelorette and her final 4 hometown dates then skip this post!! I’m a fan of the Bachelor and Bachelorette but some seasons I don’t watch and I could NEVER sit thru an episode without being able to fast forward! For real. I have been a long time fan of Reality Steve who spoils each season and on Insta I follow a few site like that… .which brings me to how I am going to be on the Bachelorette!
One of her final 4 guys this year Blake is from Bailey, CO which is about an hour north of me and I saw online that you could “sign up” to be in the crowd of the date. I signed up and the night before I got the RSVP back saying I got picked to go! I took my friend Jac who is also a fan and we made a day of it! It was weird there were requirements on what you can wear and we did sign a NDA thing but they allowed us to have our phones and take pictures. I think they know this only ups the excitement of the season
We arrived at Blake’s High School at Noon and literally sat in a room with no internet until 5pm with nothing to do but stare at a wall. But we kept thinking…. any minute now…. because no one tells you anything AT ALL. Then at 5 we were ushered into the auditorium, given rules and guidelines and they started shooting “audience reaction” so we pretended Becca was there and we danced to Betty Who
Betty Who? I know…. I had no clue but after hearing the same 3 songs for an hour she wore off on me and Becca is actually a HUGE fan. She freaked out when she saw this surprise!
A HUGE surprise for us was that we were sat right by the couple…. there is NO way we will not make it on the show because they walked right by us and the camera was on us the whole time. All I can think is “Dear God, please don’t let me look like an idiot”
Blake’s family was there, his best friends who we got to talk to and Becca and Blake generally seemed to like each other. It was more real than I thought it would be!
Overall the day was fun and we didn’t head home until 7pm when the couple was headed to his parents house for dinner! And of course once the season airs I will be rooting for him of course. He was super cute. Seemed kinda goofy too!
This was a once in a lifetime thing to check off the old bucket list… be on ABC! LOL!! We shall see come this summer!
