Will you accept this rose?

I am slightly embarrassed to say that I have been sucked into..........The Bachelor, there I said it. Now, I have given this show a fair chance, I watched it back in the day when Aaron was forced to choose between Brooke and Helene and then when Andrew Firestone tried his hand on it, but it just gets worse and worse every season.....as guess there in lies the appeal. I watched the last few episodes of the last season with Jason - the indecisive (insert not so nice name calling word here), there was so much hype about it and my normal shows were not on - so I got sucked in. I will say that the show did not lack any entertainment! Long story short for those of you who didn't watch.....
Jason kicks off Jillian, leaving 3 (I think), she was a big favorite so no one was happy about that. At the end Jason was left with 2 girls, Melissa and I can't for the life of me remember her name, he picks Melissa. She was the fan favorite, so everyone LOVED that. They ended the show with him, Melissa and her formal dress, and Jason's son jumping into the pool....so sweet, right?! Then at the "After The Final Rose" Jason decides he picked the wrong girl and dumps Melissa on National TV and asks the other girl to take him back. Really, ABC?!?! Really?!?!? It was awful. I swore I would never watch it again.

Then....they bring back Jillian for The Bachelorette, she goes through the men and starts to get on my nerves. I, again, start watching the last few episodes. She has a goody-goody, nice guy pilot, a musician who is only on the show to boost his career, not attractive, and cannot give a straight answer to the accusation that he has a girlfriend - but yet she keeps him anyway - whatev, then a guy who leaves the show for work, but comes back because he misses her. She ends up with the guy that left the show.....really!??!

Anyway....the goody-goody, nice guy pilot, otherwise known as Jake, is chosen to be the next Bachelor aka "The Bachelor: On The Wings Of Love" yes, that is for real....so again, I am sucked in. The girls are crazier and more annoying than ever, but Jake isn't having any of it and I LOVE it.....terrible television at it's best! And until my Gossip Girl comes back on (even better terrible television), this is what I have to work with on Monday nights! And to make things better, my sweet husband has been keeping me company while watching it! We spend two hours cracking on these crazy crazy girls, and waiting for "The Most Dramatic Rose Ceremony Yet!" Good times! I love you, Trey!

Here is the famous, Jake, cute but kind of a goober.....


Here are the final 4:

Ali, my fave.....she was on the verge of crazy last week, but came to her senses this week


Here is Tenley, I think she will be the last one standing...

 

Gia, very sweet and very beautiful, just don't think Jake is that into her....


and last, Vienna, this girl is off her rocker! 23 and obsessed - run Jake run.


Anybody else watch? Who's your pick?

Oh I adore you for this post! I called Tenley on Day 1 (no seriously, the hubs and I have a bet) but I think Vienna is purely on there for ratings. Can't wait for the hometown dates next week. And yes, I realize how sad it sounds to say that!
