Bachelor Recap E08: Locky's Letters Home

I had to keep the Zoom dates under 45 minutes so they were free.

Dear Mummy,

I know I could come and talk to you since I’m sleeping at your house in my childhood bedroom ̶d̶u̶r̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶l̶o̶c̶k̶d̶o̶w̶n̶, but I’m finding continuing my letters to you quite cathartic. Because mummy, this is the biggest challenge, ̶5̶G̶, J̶o̶n̶a̶t̶h̶a̶n̶, the producers have thrown at me yet. Staying inside, mummy! Because LOCKY LIKE OUTDOOR. But I’m not going to let it get me down, I will not give up. This c̶h̶a̶l̶l̶e̶n̶g̶e̶ pandemic will not stop me from finding ̶m̶y̶ ̶b̶l̶u̶e̶ ̶t̶i̶c̶k̶ love.

The hardest part is ̶w̶o̶r̶r̶y̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶a̶b̶o̶u̶t̶ ̶w̶h̶e̶n̶ ̶I̶'̶l̶l̶ ̶b̶e̶ ̶a̶b̶l̶e̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶g̶e̶t̶ ̶b̶a̶c̶k̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶K̶u̶t̶a̶ missing my girls. I’m so upset I can’t be with my ̶s̶i̶s̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶w̶i̶v̶e̶s̶ girlfriends in person. If I can’t be with them at all times, how I will be sure they’re not responding to all the ̶f̶o̶r̶m̶e̶r̶ ̶B̶a̶c̶h̶e̶l̶o̶r̶e̶t̶t̶e̶ ̶c̶o̶n̶t̶e̶s̶t̶a̶n̶t̶s̶ guys that slide into their DMs? I’m the only one who’s allowed to be polygamous around here! Luckily, Oshi had my back and sent all the girls ̶M̶a̶c̶B̶o̶o̶k̶s̶ ̶ unbranded laptops bugged with spyware. So now mummy, I know exactly what my girlfriends are doing at all times, like Big Brother. But Oshi tells me that’s another show that I’m not on (remind me to apply for that if I can’t get back to Kuta) and I shouldn’t tell the girls I’m watching them 24 hours a day. Also, mummy, I do wonder where Channel 10 found the budget to buy 10 ̶M̶a̶c̶B̶o̶o̶k̶s̶ ̶ unbranded laptops when I couldn’t even get a bit of Mersey Valley and some Sa-Ka-Tas on my dates in the Ishka Mansion!

My s̶i̶s̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶w̶i̶v̶e̶s̶ girlfriends might not be allowed to talk to anyone but me during LOCKyDOWN, but I’m allowed to talk to all of them, obviously. This is LOCKY’S SHOW. I’ve been ̶s̶e̶n̶d̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶u̶n̶s̶o̶l̶i̶c̶i̶t̶e̶d̶ ̶d̶i̶c̶k̶ ̶p̶i̶c̶k̶s̶ ̶ chatting to one of the blondes quite a bit, which I know you know, because she’s the one I was s̶e̶x̶t̶i̶n̶g̶ talking to when you came downstairs and yelled at me the other night for being too loud when I was belting out on the karaoke machine. Well anyway, I still had her in my phone as 'Blonde #6' and I felt a bit bad. You raised me better than that, so I invited her on the first official date of Love in LOCKyDOWN.

̶T̶h̶e̶ ̶p̶r̶o̶d̶u̶c̶e̶r̶s̶ ̶ Oshi must have really reached down the back of the couch for those ̶M̶a̶c̶B̶o̶o̶k̶s̶ ̶ unbranded laptops because for our date all we got was some Old El Paso and not even both hard and soft shells, we only got hard shells and mummy you know I like both!! Porque no los dos? I bet Tim 'Pierce' Robards would have gotten both. I was really mad at Oshi after that mummy, but he said we had to do something quick and easy to keep the Zoom date to under 45 minutes so it was free.
