The Bachelorette Recap: Kupah Makes it Very, Very Weird

by at . Comments

With the season premiere over and Britt Nilsson vanquished by Kaitlyn Bristowe, The Bachelorette returned to normal in Season 11 Episode 3.

And by normal, we mean very, very uncomfortable.

As promised by The Bachelorette spoilers, three men were eliminated, but not before some epically awkward fights, meltdowns and stand-up comedy.

Kicking things off, eight-person group date consisting of Daniel, Justin, Jared, Corey, Tanner, Kupah, Ben H., and Ben Z. had to learn how to box.

In hopes of getting one step closer to Kaitlyn's. Sorry.

Special guest star Laila Ali must have been oh so proud when Ben Z. took Jared down so hard that he had to be taken the hospital for observation.

Kupah, meanwhile, may be the first contestant in the history of The Bachelorette to get so into the group date activity that he ignored Kaitlyn entirely.

More on that guy below ... wow it gets good/terrible.

In addition to delivering an ass whopping, Ben Z. delivered a sad story about how his mom died of cancer at age 14, winning the group date rose.

On Monday's second group date, Joshua, Chris, Jonathan, Ian, Joe, JJ and Tony met up with Kaitlyn and Amy Schumer at the Improv Comedy Club.

It was actually not quite as bad as it sounds, but given how bad it sounds, it was still pretty bad ... especially when Tony the Healer got up on stage.

J.J. was unabashed about wanting Tony out - they're all thinking it, he just says it out loud - and about being better than everyone else in the running.

He backed it up with the rose, so joke's on us.

He's still a turd though, as Amy Schumer said ... think Kait will see through the bravado and kick him to the curb sooner rather than later or what?

At the pre-rose ceremony cocktail party, things got incredibly weird very fast when Kupah likened himself to "the minority the guy that fills a quota."

If he's basing that on Kaitlyn not paying enough attention to him on their boxing date, that's pretty ridic seeing that he was way more into the lessons.

When Kupah confronted Kaitlyn, the conversation was painful ... but not as painful as hearing him talk about it to the rest of the guys right afterward.

Telling Kupah that his voice carries, Kaitlyn said she lost whatever connection the two had and asked him to please leave before the rose ceremony.

Thought the awkwardness would end there?

"I don't want to go home. I think you're hot, I think you're sexy, I think you're pretty," Kupah pleaded, basically refusing to leave the set of the show.

Literally refusing, it turned out.

After Kaitlyn returned to the mansion, she was distracted by a major commotion outside. Kupah was still making a scene over being sent home.

To be continued ...

Still in it: Ben Zorn, Ben Higgins, Corey Stansell, Tanner Tolbert, Jared Haibon, Justin Reich, Clint Arlis, Shawn Booth, Ryan Beckett, Ian Thomson, Tony Harris, JJ Lane, Chris Strandburg, Jonathan Holloway, Joshua Albers and Joe Bailey.

Eliminated: Daniel Finney, Cory Shivar and Kupah James (presumably).

Next Week: Ready for the long-awaited (we guess) return of Nick Viall?

Footnote: Oh, Britt Nilsson and Brady Toops are still totally together. The way things are going for Kaitlyn thus far, Britt might have just won by losing.
