Monday night’s Warriors-Cavs game certainty didn’t live up to the hype. But you know what show never disappoints? Here’s a hint: it features 25 women clawing over one man. Also, lots of talk about cankles.

The first two weeks of the Bachelor were pretty bland, at least compared to what we’ve seen in the past. Yeah, eight of the original 25 women searching for love — and, you know, fame — were sent home. But there was no major drama.

Boy, did that change this week. The episode kicks off with Ben going on a date with Lauren B. Nearly half of the other ladies were sent to the Los Angeles Coliseum to play soccer with Alex Morgan. Ben seemed to enjoy that. A lot. It was kind of weird actually.
