Bachelorette Breakdown: Ali Body Slams The Wrestler

We're finally nearing the last few rounds of The Bachelorette, which means Ali has to seriously clean house. On this week's episode, Ali and the boys traveled to Turkey, and within minutes, Justin was already going home. It was the biggest turn of events that we've seen so far this season, so we — Très and Buzz — could not wait to gab about the drama. Read on for our take, and then weigh in with your own observations in the comments!

  • BuzzSugar: Justin is totally busted! I had an inkling it was him who had a girlfriend, but I was surprised that they started off the show with his ordeal instead of building up the suspense. Could you believe he just took off with his luggage instead of trying to defend himself at first? For someone who's a wrestler, that was a weak move.
  • TrèsSugar: The Justin confrontation was my favorite moment of the season so far! I loved that she called him out in front of the guys. Their giddy reactions cracked me up. Although, I think Ali had zero feelings for Justin. Instead of getting sad that he had a girlfriend, she just got pissed. She probably kept him around for entertainment/ratings purposes, so in a way they were using each other. And what could be more entertaining than Justin making his getaway through planter boxes, in the middle of Turkey, with a walking boot on his foot? He had a total meltdown, trying to walk into a closed restaurant and telling Ali "don't touch me."

For more of our thoughts, including a video of Rated R's exit,


  • Buzz: Let's not forget the voicemails! Um, "I'm in Iceland" — Justin's caught red-handed! Onto my other favorite moment of the night, I found it pretty amusing when the guys had to roll around with the burly Turkish men. Even though the idea of literally fighting for Ali seems barbaric, watching them squirm as they were getting greased up with olive oil was a highlight of the night. Kirk never looked so happy! And who would've thought Craig would come out the winner? That guy has been sitting back for multiple episodes, but he finally showed his competitive side.
  • Très: Craig did step it up when it came to olive oil wrestling, but totally failed when it came to making a move on the solo date. Craig is a nice guy and was having a good time with the other dudes, but like you said last week: no kiss at this point, no way you're making it. Still, I would have liked to see Craig stay over Ty. I could not believe Ty admitted that he got a divorce because his wife wanted to work outside the house. That's totally opposite of what career-girl Ali stands for. I think she gave him a rose because she didn't want to punish him for being honest, but he's a goner.
  • Buzz: I know! Ty may seem sweet, but that was probably the dumbest thing he could say to Ali. At least he admitted that he's grown up some since then, but it's a red flag for sure (even though I did like his Risky Business tribute). Ty will be lucky if he lasts past next week. OK, I'm dying to discuss Frank, because the spoilery ABC promos have me doubting the guy now. But what did you think about his one-on-one date? Good luck carrying that rug back on the airplane!
  • Très: Frank never really did it for me, so I won't be too sad if he leaves. Based on the previews, it seems like Ali might not choose any of the guys! Maybe she'll end up with Jake. I hear he's single. OK, probably not — I'd take Roberto, Chris L., or Kirk over vanilla Jake any day. So if you had to choose a guy to be the next Bachelor, who would you choose? I'll say . . . Roberto!
  • Buzz: I say Chris L.! He seems like such a genuine, family-oriented guy, and he's definitely one of the funniest dudes there. I would choose him, move to the Cape, and scarf down lobster to my heart's content.

I read the spoilers on what happens with Frank too! I think he was her pick and I think it spoils things for her and I think she will end up not picking anyone. I also heard that she is currently if she does pick someone she isn't still with them? I don't know but we are almost there and it should be intresting.

Oh, and yeah, when Ty said that thing about why he divorced his ex-wife... I definitely gasped and said "oh you're done." Even though he said he's grown, I feel like some of those values are still stuck with him.

I think Frank and Ali seem the most natural together... genuinely happy. But yeah, it seems like he is going to let her down and leave or something. Super bummed about that. I think she should end up with Roberto (although I feel like she is more into it than he is). And KIRK should be the next bachelor. He is just FUN. I like him.

skigurl, its true, that maybe he hasn't really changed. Its one thing to say he's lying, but most people seem to not like the fact that he would even admit it. Sure, in Ali's shoes I probably wouldn't bet on him changing - but as an outside observer, I liked that he admitted it and admitted that it was ignorant and childish, it honestly made me like him more. And who knows, a marriage and divorce are HUGE things in life and can make you alter your ways in a dramatic sense. Maybe he lived his whole life not totally convinced with his families opinions and it took a failed marriage to realize that those opinions were wrong.

I hated Justin. There was just something weird about him. Like the whole, "I want to be a daddddyyyy" issue. Yes, it's great that you want to be a dad, and it sucks that you didn't have a father figure. But those tears in week 3 were fake. Frank is clingy and annoying and dorky, I swear to God if she picks him, I will vomit when their wedding pictures are on the magazine covers. Even if I'm in public when I first see them. Ali needs to pick Roberto and send the other guys packing. In a perfect world, she would have kept Kasey around, because he was really sweet and seemed like good husband material. But if I have to pick between the guys left, Roberto's her man.

I see that, zeze, but I raise you the fact that no one can move on and grow that quickly and that well. He might think he's okay with a woman working, but his attitude in a marriage, if married to a career woman who had no interest in being a housewife might state otherwise. I can appreciate the sentiment but no one changes like night and day like that. It's his upbringing and his values. He can speak all he wants, but I am sure a woman would have to conform at least somewhat or face a wrath.

I don't think Ty's admission was that bad - he said that he lived a sheltered and almost ignorant childhood and has grown and changed, he's admitting it is wrong and stupid to think women have only one place as a housewife - so I don't really see why people would jump on him for that. It's nice to see someone admit their close-mindedness and move on and grow from it, it means they are mature and flexible.

A few thoughts on Ty: I've heard through tabloid websites that Ty may not have been entirely faithful in his 1st marriage. Who knows if it's true, but that paired with the stay-at-home mom love, and I'm not sure he's going to last much longer. Also, it seems like Ali thinks Ty's good looking and a good guy, but I don't think he revs her engine like Roberto does. I was shocked to see the previews with Frank. He seems SO into her! After seeing that I caved in and looked up the spoilers on him and was even more shocked. I feel bad for Ali! She's got some real doozies this season.

Last night's episode was so good. My thoughts: Craig is awesome, but like normal dude awesome, not Ali finding love on TV awesome. I'd date him if I met him in real life, though. I doubt he will have trouble dating a normal girl. He's so funny and cute and seems real - I love how he is always drinking. Uh, I always loved Ty until he said he broke up with his wife because she didn't want to be a stay at home wife barefoot in the kitchen! Whoa, you don't admit that sort of stuff dude! I agree, she kept him only because she didn't want to punish him for being honest, but he's a goner very soon. He was never going to be the guy for her anyway. I'm surprised he stayed around this long. And is this guy a singer? I just googled around a little and noticed that. Weird. Maybe he's also just another Nashville boy looking for fame. As always, I love Kirk, Chris L. and Roberto. I think she totally 100% loves Roberto. and again, they treated one another as though they are already boyfriend/girlfriend during the episode. That always happens (remember he hugged her during the Justin confrontation). Thank god Justin is gone though. But why did they bring Jessie into it? It's such a ratings grab, honestly, I am sure they forced her to keep Justin there to a certain point. She didn't even cry - therefore she wasn't that upset. Unlike when Jillian cried for Wes, or in the previews, Ali apparently cries for Frank. Oh, and FRANK. Okay that guy sucks. Honestly. And I was so confused. I thought at one point he was breaking up with her. And that obviously happens later in Tahiti. I can't believe she is still keeping that guy around. Trust me, if a guy is disapointing you ALREADY (around date #6) I don't think that's going to get BETTER. She's dumb for keeping him around after she knows full well he keeps letting her down and they basically have a bipolar relationship where it's sometimes awesome but sometimes crap. Does anyone know when the finale is? I can't wait!
