Alright, folks, you have waited patiently for it, and now it is here—our After the Final Rose recap. And boy, is it going to be a doozy.
Most seasons, the After the Final Rose special is just your average, run-of-the-mill Bachelor update show. The newly-engaged couple is obnoxiously happy and PDA-ing it up on national television, Bachelor Burn Book Writer #1 cries, Chris Harrison says something skeezy, things get awkward between the Bachelor and the sad woman he rejected, and then we celebrate the announcement of the new Bachelorette!
But this time, none of that happened (except for the whole Chris Harrison saying something skeezy part, because that always happens). Everything changed. What is usually a joyous and mildly awkward occasion turned into a giant cluster. An absolute shitstorm erupted. The world exploded. Bachelor Nation lost its frickin’ mind. By the end of the episode, pretty much every person watching cared exactly zero percent about Chris and Whitney—or even remembered who they were.
And we are here to recap all the madness. Because someone has to document this two Bachelorette debacle. But first, let’s start at the beginning—you know, the 55 boring minutes of the episode.
To the recap!
