"Shout Out Cardi B" | 'The Bachelor' S22 E2 Recap

Arie's second episode included some truly head-scratching one-on-one dates. Between Becca's jaw-dropping sugar daddy date and Krystal's private jet visit to Arie's hometown, it felt like ABC accidentally aired Week 8 instead of Week 2. Plus: Are we willing to make light of an alleged childhood bumper car trauma? And should ABC blur out some of the more intense makeout sessions?

Before you start the episode, Rim needs to come clean on one thing: We spent about 10 minutes discussing the value of Becca's luxury haul (Rachel Zoe dresses, Christian Louboutin shoes, earrings, necklace, and bracelets from Neil Lane), and while AB tried to convince me Becca did not get to keep the necklace and bracelets, I insisted she did. I was incorrect. Hand up, that's on me.
