Man, the enhancing of this season of BIP is so wonky. It’s like each episode takes on a brand new theme. For a couple of of the episodes, we’ve clearly had them concentrate on one particular person or a pair. Genevieve had an episode the place she dominated the display time, Ashley & Jared dominated final week, Michael dominated on Monday, after which final night time it wasn’t one individual, but it surely was the identical theme again and again and over. And that was, lets present one couple on the seaside attending to know one another and/or making out, then intersperse that with clips from the resort the place the lady within the “relationship” with the man is depressing and crying over him. It’s okay to point out it for a minute or two, however they harped on it SO a lot, it received outdated. Noticed it with Jill whereas Jacob is tonguing down Kate whereas she straddles him, we see it with Lace as Rodney is on a date with Eliza, and many others. It was all a bit an excessive amount of and I want they might’ve spent much less time on it. We get the image. And it made the ladies look determined, which I don’t consider they’re. However they’re mainly forcing them to be, which is rarely an excellent look.
Immediately’s Day by day Roundup covers final night time’s BIP, Casa Amor not fairly working as anticipated, Jared & Ashley communicate on Michael & Danielle, Cassie offers ideas on Colton popping out, & DWTS ideas.

Ashley & Jared addressed the Michael & Danielle relationship during an interview with US Weekly yesterday, and here’s what they said:
“I’m for Danielle and Michael. I think at the end of the day, Sierra is a fantastic person and I love her so much. From what we gathered when we were down on the beach, it was more so that Michael, maybe, didn’t feel it with Sierra,” Jared told Us Weekly exclusively on Tuesday, October 18. “It was more about his connection with Sierra than it was, ‘He’s not ready for a relationship.’”
Ashley agreed. “And initially, like, before we got to talk to Michael about that, I was like, ‘Oh, I guess he’s leaving too because he’s probably realizing that this is not for him.’ But then the next day, we talked to him, and he was like, ‘No, it’s not that. It’s just that I knew that that wasn’t going to be a long-term thing,’” she said.
Which no one is really disputing or having an issue with. It’s clear to us Michael wasn’t into Sierra for the long term. But the fact she’s still tweeting about it 4 months later, I think the way he told her, and maybe what he was telling her before he blindsided her, is showing that maybe he wasn’t as transparent as what he thought he was being. The other thing that Jared fails to address is, while he has every right to feel that way about Sierra, what people are having an issue with is the fact that there’s been no acknowledgement that maybe Michael’s feelings changed BECAUSE he knew Danielle was coming on the beach and was just holding out for her. Anyone who says that didn’t play a role at all isn’t being objective. I think it’s pretty clear that played a role, if not a major one.
Cassie spoke about Colton coming out for the first time earlier this week. The only other time she even addressed it was on Kaitlyn’s podcast, but all she talked about was saying she found out when all of us did. This was her first response to him coming out as gay:
“I’m very happy that he is you know is at peace with himself and not carrying that burden anymore, of course,” she explained. “It was a very just overall hard time for me, so I feel like there was just one thing after another and I was just extremely overwhelmed with everything going on.”
There are plenty of people out there who can’t seem to separate Colton harrassing Cassie and her having to file a TRO against him versus his struggle with his sexuality. The two of them aren’t the same. It’s ok to say you have empathy for Colton and how much he struggled with his sexuality for probably most of his life, especially in the public eye. That’s not, I repeat NOT, mean you dismiss what he did to Cassie. Yet there are plenty of people who seem to think that way. Sorry, but saying you empathize with Colton regarding his sexuality struggle does not make you a Colton apologist. People are so scared to say one positive thing, or show any sign of support for Colton’s struggle with coming out because they think that means they are ok with what he did to Cassie. They aren’t mutually exclusive. You can feel sorry for his struggles and be completely bothered by him stalking Cassie. You should be. But here’s Cassie, THE ONE HE STALKED AND HAD TO FILE A TRO AGAINST, and even she’s saying she’s happy he’s at peace with himself. So if she can say it, we all can say it. If you don’t have empathy for his struggles with his sexuality for years, then there’s something wrong with you.
