Season 20, Episode 3 Recap

Episode Recap From Deadline: The date kicks off on a high note though, as the pair sip champagne in the air before landing in the middle of Petco Park. San Diego is Brayden’s hometown, so he’s excited to show Charity the city through his eyes. Read more…

From Entertainment Weekly: “Me and Brayden have the whole park to ourselves,” says Charity. “I’m trying to make him feel at ease because he’s from here, this is a team that he supports.” …Anyhow, out comes the Swinging Friar, the San Diego Padres’ mascot, bearing personalized jerseys and other assorted gear for Charity and Brayden.Read more…

What is the Bachelorette

Yes, right. Fair question. The Bachelorette is a reality tv dating game show that premiered on ABC in 2003 as a spin-off of “The Bachelor.” The show follows a single bachelorette who chooses a potential husband from a group of romantic interests. The first season featured Trista Rehn, the runner-up from the first season of “The Bachelor.” Over the years, the show has become an annual staple of ABC’s summer programming. The format of “The Bachelorette,” similar to “The Bachelor,” has the bachelorette meeting and eliminating contestants through rose ceremonies. The season culminates in a final rose ceremony where one suitor proposes to the bachelorette.
