Once upon a time, we watched The Bachelor and The Bachelorette without the white noise of social media in the background.

After all, the franchise debuted in 2002, a simpler time when Bachelor Nation didn't live-tweet its every thought about one-on-one dates and rose ceremonies.

We're in a different era now. Scrolling through snarky comments made on Twitter, in particular, makes the whole viewing experience more fun, and Monday night's episode of The Bachelorette, which took place in Buenes Aires, was no exception.

Here's a summary of what went down, in five tweets. 
 

Wells has no game. Poor skinny Wells, the radio DJ who brought '90s R & B group All-4-One on the first night (And I swear, by the moon and the stars and the sky, I would have given him all of the roses just for that entrance) was the last guy standing who hadn't kissed JoJo. They finally kissed, awkwardly, but JoJo sent him home anyway. 
 
The guys are getting jealous of Jordan, aka Green Bay Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodger's brother. He's the clear front runner and the others, James Taylor in particular, are mad about it. "I do not think I'm better than anyone else in the house," Jordan told JoJo. Does she believe that? Does she think his overstyled bouffant hair is a good look? It appears that way.
 
 
Luke is a dead ringer for Vanilla Ice, but JoJo doesn't seem to mind. They made out a lot and I wouldn't be surprised if it's him and Jordan left at the end (but I still think she'll pick Jordan). 
 
 
John Krasinski doppelganger Derek had an epic meltdown when he was sent home following a 2-on-1 with Chase. He talked about himself in the third person ("Derek is imperfect") while "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina" played in the background. Brilliant, Bachelorette producers, just brilliant.
 
 
JoJo gave out an extra rose at the end of the night. With one final rose left, it was down to singer-songwriter James Taylor (not the same singer-songwriter who sang Fire and Rain) and Alex (vertically challenged Marine who seems to be always in the middle of drama in the house). She decided to keep both of them.... but I doubt they'll be around much longer.
