Day 4, Part 2: The First Rose Ceremony

09-24-19_10-49-44 PM

Hello and welcome back to The Geeky Bachelor! Today, we’ll just hang out at the mansion with Divan and the ladies. Tonight will be the first rose ceremony and one lady will have to leave the house, unfortunately.

“Hello, Trish,” Divan greets and hugs Trish. “I missed you yesterday and I’m so sorry we couldn’t go on a date – I would’ve loved that.”

“Me too,” Trish says. “I’ve had a lot of time to think and I really want to be here – I really want to be here with you.”

“Really?” Divan asks. “I’m so happy to hear that! Next time, you’ll be the first girl I go on a date with and I’m sure it’ll be magical!”

“I can’t wait!” Trish exclaims.

“Hi Jess,” a bare-chested Divan greets and embraces Jessica. “I’m so sorry we didn’t have a chance to go on a date yesterday and I’m sorry you had to witness me and Nikki kissing. I really didn’t mean to hurt your feelings.”

She joins him in the swimming pool, whereafter they dip their feet into the water and chat for a while.

“That’s a cute bikini – I mean you look really cute in it,” Divan compliments.

“Thank you,” Jessica replies. “There’s something I need to tell you.”

“Yes?” Divan asks, concerned.

“I’ve been thinking that maybe we’re not meant to be together,” Jessica says. “I mean you’re a great guy and all, but dating someone with several other girlfriends is not for me. I hope you understand.”

“That’s a bit of a bummer,” Divan says. “But I understand completely and I respect that, too.”

Mildred hugs Divan as he plans to head inside the mansion. “I apologize for my obnoxious behaviour this morning,” Mildred says. “I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me and maybe give us another chance.”

09-24-19_10-59-51 PM

“Of course I forgive you!” Divan shouts. “Just take things one step at a time, allright?”

“Absolutely,” Mildred replies. “Baby steps.”

09-24-19_11-28-14 PM

It’s time for the rose ceremony and Divan is feeling sick. “I really can’t stand this whole affair,” Divan says. “I really don’t want to break anyone’s heart, but I understand that it needs to be done. Let’s just get it over with.”

Gemma and Nancy have already received roses during their dates, so both ladies will not be going home tonight.

All the ladies are looking gorgeous this evening. They all seem anxious about what’s to come. Divan, when you’re ready, you can call the first lady’s name.

09-24-19_11-31-17 PM

“Nikki,” Divan calls. She walks over to him.

09-24-19_11-33-12 PM

“Nikki, will you accept this rose?” Divan asks, while holding out the rose.

09-24-19_11-33-25 PM

“Of course,” Nikki answers and takes the rose.

09-24-19_11-40-07 PM

“Lila,” Divan calls. She walks over to him.

09-24-19_11-44-09 PM

“Lila, will you accept this rose?” Divan asks.

“Of course I will,” Lila replies. “Will you accept this kiss?”

She then spontaneously kisses him.

09-24-19_11-45-10 PM

…to the other ladies’ dismay.

“I’m not fazed at all – not even one bit,” Mildred smiles confidently.

09-24-19_11-47-43 PM

“Who should I call next, boy?” Divan asks D.J. He then seems to make up his mind.

“Mildred,” Divan calls and she walks over to him.

09-24-19_11-50-14 PM

“Mildred, will you accept this rose?” Divan asks.

09-24-19_11-50-22 PM

“Absolutely,” Mildred replies. “There’s  nothing like the scent of fresh flowers. Remember that for future reference…”

The last rose remains.

09-24-19_11-53-11 PM

“Trish,” Divan calls. She walks over to him.

09-24-19_11-54-22 PM

“Trish, will you accept this rose?” Divan asks.

“Yes,” Trish replies. “Thank you!”

09-24-19_11-54-33 PM

“I love roses,” Trish says. “I love everything about nature, as a matter of fact.”

09-24-19_11-58-06 PM

“Sorry boy,” Divan says and pets D.J. “I know you had a crush on Alaska…”

09-24-19_11-58-33 PM

“I’m so sorry,” Divan says to Jessica. “This is what you wanted, right?”

09-24-19_11-58-53 PM

“Yes, it is,” Jessica replies.

“Friends?” Divan offers. “We could always play some Blickblock together as fellow geeks!”

“I’d love that,” Jessica says.

Aww…Alaska! We can all see your heart was set on D.J.!

09-25-19_12-19-01 AM

“I just want to go to bed now,” Nikki walks out sadly. “Seeing him with all the other women…it’s all too much for me.”

09-25-19_12-20-04 AM

Bye Alaska! We (and D.J.) will miss you, girl!

09-25-19_12-22-15 AM

Goodbye Jessica! We wish you all the best with your future endeavours and hope you meet someone as special as you are! It was great having you!

09-29-19_2-32-02 PM

“I’m so sorry if I made you upset,” Divan tells Nikki. “I might have something that’ll cheer you up!”

“What?” Nikki asks and wipes her tears.

09-29-19_2-32-26 PM

“The key to your own bedroom!” Divan shouts. “I meant it when I said we have something special – you’re the first girl I fell for in the first place and I’d like to see where this goes.”

09-29-19_2-32-43 PM

“Aw…thank you!” Nikki replies. “Are you kidding? It’s almost too good to be true!”

“Not at all,” Divan answers. “I hope you like it – it’s just a tiny fraction of what a girl like you deserves…”

09-29-19_2-34-49 PM

Nikki climbs into the queen size bed of her new quarters. The other ladies must be green with jealousy right now!

09-29-19_2-35-32 PM

“At least that’s done,” Divan says as he climbs into bed. “Only time will tell whether I’m making the right choices here.”

Author’s Notes: Thank you for reading. This was an interesting turn of events. Divan had the highest relationship with Nikki and the lowest relationship with Jessica, which is why she went home. Luckily she didn’t seem upset when Divan asked her “to just be friends”. 

The ladies were furious and heartbroken while watching each other receive roses – especially when Lila received hers. I now remember that Lila actually rejected the rose during her and Divan’s date, which is why she received one here.

Are you happy with the choices Divan made? Anyone you’re rooting for yet? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
