    Anna Spread A Rumor About A Contestant Being An Escort, And Bach Nation Is NOT Having It

    ANNA! WORDS! MEAN! THINGS!

    HELLOOOO, Bach Nation! Welcome to your fourth installment of "Bach in a Bite: The Official Bachelor Recap."

    ABC

    In case you missed last week's episode, you can catch up in a jiffy here.

    Now, this isn't meant to be a two-hour affair, so let's jump right in, shall we?

    Last week ended with Sarah self-eliminating, but alas, the show must go on! The date-night cocktail party continued, and Matt James had an amazing conversation with Chelsea, which scored her the date-night rose.

    Chelsea opened up about shaving her head and forcing herself, as a Black woman, to fit into white spaces. V emotional to see as someone who went through that growing up.

    It's time for the rose ceremony cocktail party! Before things can even GET STARTED, Chris Harrison interrupts Queen Victoria's time...

    ...to introduce Matt James to FIVE NEW LADY SUITORS!

    ABC

    The new lady suitors include Brittany, a 23-year-old model from Chicago (remember her); Michelle, a 27-year-old teacher from Minnesota (remember her, too); Ryan, a 26-year-old dancer from Brooklyn; Catalina, a 29-year-old pageant queen from Puerto Rico; and Kimberly, a 28-year-old ICU nurse from Los Angeles.

    It goes without saying that the OG lady suitors are not pleased with the newcomers. Victoria went as far as to REMOVE. THE CROWN. FROM CATALINA'S. HEAD.

    Catalina was Miss Puerto Rico Universe...and Victoria is...Victoria.

    This, of course, threw a wrench in things, but there was still a rose ceremony, and some women went home — including some new ladies and some OGs. A fallen petal for each of our fallen lady suitors.

    The women who went home were Kim (who arrived that evening) and Kaili and Khaylah, who've been there since night one.

    A new day = a new group date! It's a mix of some new ladies and OG ladies. OH, and Ben Higgins is there!

    ABC

    The group date consisted of a fall-themed obstacle course, which was, in a word, hilarious:

    During the date-night cocktail hour, Anna spills the beans to Victoria that she's had people "warn her" about Brittany being an escort:

    Her reasoning? Because "she knows all the wealthy men in Chicago."

    And if that wasn't bad enough, SHE CONFRONTED BRITTANY ABOUT THIS RUMOR IN FRONT OF ALL THE GIRLS!

    Not only is it not your business, Anna, but you went as far as to take business that's not yours and air it in front of EVERYONE! EVEN IF IT'S TRUE, WHERE DO YOU GET THE RIGHT TO JUDGE HER FOR HER PROFESSION? I cannot.

    The following day, none of the OG ladies were pleased when Michelle, a newbie, got the one-on-one date. But I ain't mad 'cause they're CUTE AS HECK! Officially rooting for Michelle.

    "How can you hate from outside of the club when you can't even get in??"

    Quelle surprise, she got a date-night rose, to which I say, if you don't marry this woman, Matt James, we're gonna have to talk.

    The second group date involved a boxing match — which Wells Adams showed up to judge — but it had to come to an end early 'cause THE HANDS WERE GETTING THROWN A LIL' TOO HARD!

    Matt James immediately moved to the cocktail hour, where Katie actually pulled him aside because she was concerned about all the rumors about Brittany being an escort going around in the house/the overall toxicity in the house.

    The consensus from Bach Nation is that 1) Anna needs to know that WORDS. MEAN. THINGS:

    If the rumor isn’t true, Anna started a stigmatizing lie about Brittany that could ruin her life. If it is true, Anna outed a sex worker on national tv and potentially put her life in danger to be petty. That isn’t funny, cute, or “tea”. That’s fucked up #TheBachelor

    2) Katie is too grown for the majority of the women in this house:

    I hope they’re giving Katie $20 an hour for all the babysitting she’s doing. #TheBachelor

    And 3) Michelle better be the one Matt James gets down on one knee for at the ~end of this journey~:

    if it’s not Michelle at the end of this I’ll be upset she just quoted his fav quote and didn’t know it #TheBachelor

    And that's what you missed on Bach! Tune in next week — and the rest of the season — for the roses, the thorns, and everything in between!
