Bates the 20th

Recommended Posts

Last thread here:

Recap:

  • Gil, Kelly, and Carlin went to Australia for an IBLP conference.
  • Kelly had her 50th birthday.
  • Tori and Bobby are still cour-dating.
  • John, Alyssa, and Allie Jane welcomed Lexi Mae to the Webster family.

The Bateses are still shady and half-hiding their ATI/IBLP/Gothard connections. Let's make sure the world can see them.

"That's because she is young. She's barely 22 and has 2 kids. When I think of my life at 22, I can't imagine being tied down with a husband and kids, I was enjoying being young and free."

 

At 22, I was married and pregnant with our second.....and blissfully happy being tied down. We're all different :-)

This is random but do they have a IBLP conference every year in Australia? Or is this a new thing?

They have had a training center there since the 90's, so I'm pretty sure they have one every year. Typically the "big" speakers like Gil and Kelly don't go to it, they just show videos of their speeches. This year I guess they felt like taking a trip to Australia. Gil and Kelly have gone to South America for conferences too, they just don't talk about their IBLP travels a great deal.

The sad thing with Alyssa is that she really didn't have any other option. It isn't like moving out and having a career would have been allowed. The only way to escape her hellish life was to get married.

I can't believe that I didn't think of this movie quote until now:

"Ah, but the servant waits, while the *master* baits."

Extra house points if  you know what movie this is from!

Does anyone else think that Kelly's birthday ring might have been a cubic zirconia?

I haven't seen the episode, and thus the ring, but this was my initial thought when it being huge was discussed here. My MIL lost her original engagement ring years ago, and actually wanted CZ for the replacement, in case she loses it again.

Could have been moissanite, too.  It's almost has hard as diamond and even sparklier.

Lexie Mae is trying to figure out her fingers and Allie Jane is figuring out her new sister. Quite sweet!

Does anyone have a photo of the ring? I used to work in a jewelry store back in the day, I love speculating about rings.

I didn't work with jewelry but I love me some ring porn. No matter how many rings I own or how nice they are I will forever drool and covet sparkly things

Did anyone else watches the episode? I was even more bored than usual.  The whole thing was about the courtship proposal.

I watched it intermittently.  Thought both Tori and Bobby seemed fake (replay for the cameras?), and Tori kept calling Bobby "baby", which got annoying.  And the whole bit with the family standing nearby, lurking like voyeurs, is coming across as stupider with each new relationship.

That's actually a very good idea. Smart lady!

My anniversary ring was made with lab made diamonds. Fraction of the cost and nobody can tell the difference. I'll never go back

Theyre behind i think. Didnt the whole Pensacola trip happen some months ago irl? Like early fall. Tori mentioned in the episode that Bobby asked Gil to court at the end of summer.

The courtship proposal happened on the one year anniversary of them being a couple which was in October I think. They seem to run 3 or 4 months behind just like the Duggars.  Probably pretty standard for a reality show like this.

19kidsandloving has a photo of some of the bates boys with "their friend Jonas" who is in a suit. Early I love you day celebration? Anyone know who Jonas is?

eta: answered my own question - Jonas thatcher. Carlin follows him. He has photos with Lawson, trace and kaci Lynn so it seems he hangs out with the bates often enough. He just graduated from hs and was prom king, so he doesn't seem to be the iblp type (tho I guess he would be an age appropriate for Carlin)

Someone here once found a ring Chad gave Erin as an anniversary(?) present and I remember it being lab made diamonds. I can imagine even some fundie engagement rings being lab made.
