Author’s Note: Honestly, I have NO idea what happened here, and I am not responsible for it. I let the contestants do their own thing, and just worry about the Bachelor’s needs and wants. I wasn’t even near that section of the house…it was seriously a “wait, why is the grim reaper on the lot?” moment. Sigh. BUT I love a good story, love random events, and hate “exiting without saving” in order to avoid something inconvenient…so…
Host: Last time on the Bachelor, Tanner said “goodbye” to his best friend Anna because the chemistry just wasn’t there. Then…a body was discovered in the pool?!
The ominous music indicated to us that the Grim Reaper had arrived on the lot. We found him next to the pool.
Tanner was the first to arrive on the scene. He cried and pleaded for the deceased. He did really try, but the Grim Reaper did not see fit to release the body back to our world.
Rest in peace Stephanie. We don’t know why you were swimming alone at midnight, or why you drowned in pool that had stairs, but we hope there is a life jacket for you in the afterlife.
Tanner spent a large part of the following day underneath the blankets refusing to come out. We canceled dates until everyone recovered from their sadness.
There was a lot of mourning in the house. Her epitaph, by the way, includes “Told great monkey jokes.”
Tanner gave himself pep talks, played sad music on the violin (it sounded awful because he doesn’t actually know how to play the violin), and played hopeful music on the guitar.
Eventually, he began to come around, and the Bachelor was back on.
With only two contestants remaining, we had to jump to the final round of one-on-one cabin dates. We’ll see how those go next time!
