The Bachelorette producers seem to be phoning it in this season -- this week's date seemed recycled
Becca Kufrin's fantasy suite episode set in Thailand was "extremely similar" to JoJo Fletcher's fantasy suite episode set in Thailand two years ago. "It’s enough to make you wonder if The Bachelorette producers are phoning in this entire season," says Kathryn VanArendonk. "Poor Becca. The guy she seems likely to pick liked jokes about Parkland students being crisis actors, one of her other suitors was convicted of indecent assault, and this whole season exists because her fiancé broke up with her while a camera crew filmed the whole thing. Getting a recycled date pales in comparison to those problems. But it certainly doesn’t create the impression that anyone cares about making Becca’s Bachelorette season into good TV, much less into a real opportunity for romance."
