As a viewer of The Bachelor, the one concept I can't really get my head around is how the girls become best friends with all the other single ladies who are dating the same man they are. This was super evident in last year's series, when the sisterhood between the bachelorettes emerged as the biggest love story from the show. The whole concept of the "girl code" came up again on Wednesday night's episode, when 2015 Bachelor Sam Wood went in for a sneaky, passionate kiss with Snezana — while they were on a group date! OK, so it didn't happen in front of the other girls — that would have been weird and extremely inconsiderate, but it's not like Sam hasn't done it before — but the fact that it happened on a group date even made Snezana feel strange about it.
Sam took Snezana away from the barnyard group date — he'd previously done the same with Heather and Sarah — and when they were sitting on a couch alone together, they started discussing Sam's connections with the other girls, and how they couldn't not exist. Snezana, a single mother of one who's got a great head on her shoulders, seemed to understand this, and then Sam said, "Sometimes we don't need stupid words in our vocabulary. Sometimes you should just do this," and he pulled her in for some lip action.
As much as Snezana would have enjoyed that kiss, she may have felt some guilt. In her piece-to-camera she said, "We kissed on a group date. That's really bad. That's terrible. That goes against the whole girl code thing. I feel really bad about it, but it kind of happened. And as much as it goes against girl code, I'm sure if one of the other girls were in the same position, they would have done the same."
So what is girl code in the context of a show like The Bachelor? You want alone time with the guy, and you get it, and if you happen to get a bit extra, you feel bad? Or you listen to your friend talk about how she had a four-minute kiss with the guy you have a crush on, and you feel happy for her? At the end of the day, the girls went on the show to find love — this isn't called The Besties — so should they have to feel guilty if the man shows more interest in them? What do you think?
