With the announcement that yet another contestant from Juan Pablo Galavis's season of The Bachelor has gotten engaged, it's time for us to wonder: Is Galavis, 33, the embodiment of a 2007 rom-com starring Dane Cook and Jessica Alba?

The premise of Good Luck Chuck is that Cook's character, Chuck, had a curse placed on him as a 12-year-old for refusing to kiss a goth girl. Stay with us, here. The curse dictates that every woman who sleeps with Chuck will immediately break up with him and marry the next man who asks her out.

Sharleen Joynt is officially the sixth woman from Galavis's season to benefit from the former Bachelor as a sexual lucky charm. The sixth. Of course, not all of the women on this list entered Galavis's fantasy suite, but they did, undeniably, benefit from his aura.

Chris Soules is the Bachelor! After a bittersweet exit from Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette, the farmer from Arlington, Iowa, is searching for love once again on ABC's hit franchise. Chris, 33, will be blogging for PEOPLE.com every week about the women, the dates and the difficult decisions he'll make on his journey to love. So check back each week, and follow Chris on Twitter.

I don't really even know where to start with this one.

I had no clue what was happening with Kelsey when she was having her "episode." It wasn't until someone told me that Kelsey was asking for me that I had any inkling something bad was going on. When I saw her sitting on the floor, I was so worried. I felt terrible that something I said had made her panic. I didn't realize that telling the other girls about our chat would have that kind of effect on her. The only reason I said anything was because I was feeling emotional, and I felt it was only fair for them to know where my head was. I also didn't cancel the party just because of that. I canceled the party because I knew who I was going to say goodbye to, and not only did I not want to waste anyone's time, but I also just couldn't pretend. I couldn't look those women in the face at the cocktail party and act like I was still making up my mind.



There's been a lot said about Kelsey this week. And I know a lot of you are questioning why I kept her around in Santa Fe. What you have to understand is, to me Kelsey seemed like a kind, sweet person with a very sad past. I didn't feel like I was being manipulated to feel sorry for her, and I was glad when she opened up to me about her past. I will admit, though, that her fainting spell did feel a little off. It's hard to explain, but the timing did seem strange. However, that wasn't enough of a reason for me to say goodbye to her that night.

The Bachelor Recap: Kelsey and Kardashley Go on a Two-on-One Date, Awkwardness Ensues

If you're a fan of Kelsey – or a fan of her drama – this week's Bachelor was for you.

The episode opened immediately following last week's, when she fainted ("fainted") and had a panic attack ("panic attack").

Later, a two-on-one date between herself, Chris Soules and Ashley I. (whom we've dubbed "Kardashley" for her startling resemblance to Kim Kardashian) ended up being equal parts the most dramatic and most awkward date in Bachelor history.

If music is the food of love, Chris Soules is eating country-fried chicken.

The farmer in the market for love on The Bachelor has already given this season's ladies a taste of his down-home lifestyle during mud runs and tractor races, and Monday's episode sees him plan a songwriting group date in Deadwood, South Dakota.

"Country music is a big part of my life," Soules, 33, tells the women. "I love country music, and today we're going to write a few songs."

Country duo Big & Rich make an appearance to "vet" the girls for Soules, 33, and John Rich admits that "Chris Soules is in quite a predicament" as he chooses just one lady as his potential future wife.

Who Was Bachelor Contestant Kelsey Poe's Late Husband?

Viewers around the country cringed when The Bachelor contestant Kelsey Poe broke the news to Chris Soules that she had been widowed in May 2013, and moments later boasted to camera about how "amazing" her story is.

"Isn't it amazing?" said the school counselor, 28, with an apparently gleeful tone. "Tragic, but amazing. I love my story!"

"I know this is a show about Chris," she also said on camera. "But this is my love story, too. This is the unfolding of somebody who's been through something so tragic and you get to watch her pick up the pieces and grow into another person and into another relationship."

Poe described her late husband Sanderson as the love of her life before he died suddenly at the age of 42 due to heart failure.

According to his obituary, which was posted on Tulsa World, Sanderson was a jazz musician who studied at the New School for Social Research in New York City and the Royal Conservatory in Brussels, Belgium.

Chris Soules's Bachelor Blog: The Moment He Knew 'Things Were About to Get Weird'

Chris Soules is the Bachelor! After a bittersweet exit from Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette, the farmer from Arlington, Iowa, is searching for love once again on ABC's hit franchise. Chris, 33, will be blogging for PEOPLE.com every week about the women, the dates and the difficult decisions he'll make on his journey to love. So check back each week, and follow Chris on Twitter.

I was so excited to take the girls to Santa Fe. I had never been there, and I haven't really spent much time in the Southwest, so I couldn't wait to explore it with all the women.

There are two things I want to quickly address before I get started. 1.) Megan is hilarious. I love that she thought she was leaving the country when she found out we were going to New Mexico! 2.) Yes, that is a massive zit on my temple. The truth is, Bachelors get pimples too. Please don't send me notes telling me to stop eating so much chocolate. Please don't send me some organic face scrub. And please don't give my zit its own Twitter account. Actually, that might be kind of funny; I think it already has its own area code.

Okay, so Santa Fe is a pretty cool, pretty spiritual place, and I thought it would be fun to go on a date that embraced that. Little did I know I would end up shirtless and nearly hyperventilating (more on that in a bit). Of all the women, I knew Carly was the perfect person to bring on this date. She and I had already established a fun, friendly connection, but I really needed to see if we could relate on a romantic level. I thought we were going to see a love guru. Turns out that Tziporah was actually more of a sex guru. Uh oh.

The Bachelor Recap: An Ousted Contestant Returns and Kelsey Makes Us All Very Afraid

Credit: Lewis Jacobs/ABC

For the second time this season, The Bachelor featured a rejected contestant begging for another chance at love with Chris Soules.

Jordan, who was ousted in week 2 for being the drunkest, hottest mess that ever talked for an entire episode about wanting to make out with Chris, drove from Colorado to New Mexico – where this week's episode was shot – to make her case.

Also, Kelsey showed her true colors (and that's why we love her, but just kidding, because she may actually be nuts), we learned that Britt doesn't shower, and Carly and Chris visited a love guru in perhaps the most uncomfortable Bachelor date in history. (Yes, we're aware that's saying a lot.)
