We didn’t think it was possible, but we dug the pheromones put out by the August 11 episode of Bachelor in Paradise even more than the premiere’s (thanks Clare Crawley for cluing us into this possibility). The breakups got messier, the love triangles got pointier, and the WTF moments blossomed before us like a garden rose...


This week also saw the changing of the guard of a couple key titles, with both AshLee Frazier and Lacy Faddoul relinquishing their respective crowns to Elise Mosca. Ash handed over her Queen Cray Cray crown and Lacy let go of her “Girl Most Likely to Make Out with Two Guys in the Ocean” tiara. Elise happily affixed them both to her noggin, remaining obstinately clueless about Dylan Petitt’s efforts to break up with her.  

But despite Elise’s best efforts, the guys took the lead in the category of oh no you di-int. Ben Scott showed no remorse when Marcus Grodd discovered he had a girlfriend back home, Chris Bukowski shamelessly jockeyed for a flower — any old flower with do — and Marquel Martin got up on a soapbox with Michelle Money. So out of the ocean of moments that qualified as “I can’t believe we just saw that on TV,” which morsels did Bachelor Nation call out on Twitter?

Ben’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle backpack got a lot of love. Elise was loved and laughed at in equal parts. Chris B’s “Dylan is a Fat Damon” comment got some play. And Sarah Herron was hailed as the only person on the show with an ounce of reason. For a show that doesn’t take itself too seriously, its Twitter followers don’t either, making their comments an entertaining read. Enjoy!
