The Bachelor

Today I can't help but share my thoughts on the Bachelor. Please feel free to agree or disagree with me here! I have no one at my house to discuss the show with, so I would LOVE to discuss it with you, via comments!

First of all, I just love Jake. If I were single I'd probably have a huge crush on him. I think he's completely sweet, a gentleman, and LOVED that he said the most important things in his life were God, family, and friends. In that order.

So far my favorite girl is Tenley. She is the one who was divorced and won the first impression rose. She seemed to be very sweet, innocent, and genuine. I really feel for her since her ex-husband was unfaithful. I, however, did NOT like that she kissed Jake. I feel like that is just too forward, and that the man should make the first move. But I think she was sort of thinking that too, hence the few tears she shed over the whole situation.

I also loved Ali. She seemed very natural and sweet.

Am I wrong or did two girls trip on the show last night?? How embarrassing...sounds just like something I would do! I thought it was cute how the one girl said something like, "I guess I already fell for him!"

Did anyone else have a hard time watching due to the sheer awkwardness of the interactions between the bachelorettes and Jake?? Oh my, I just felt like it was so forced and rehearsed, and just plain weird in some cases. I know it's mostly due to the fact that this was the first time meeting Jake and being on camera. I can't wait until everyone starts acting more natural and their real personalities start showing through.

Some girls that I don't think were right for Jake: Roslyn, the model. I think he only picked her for her looks, and I don't think their relationship will go very deep. Also, Michelle. She was just way too intense and emotional. Jake seems to me like he likes to have a good time and not take life TOO seriously. I just don't see them as a good fit. I think maybe they only left her on to add some drama to the show. And finally, Vienna. Jake is so sweet, I just picture him with a really sweet girl. Vienna was extremely forward and I think she will stir up trouble with the other girls. I don't think Jake will end up with her.

According to the previews of the season, it looks like it will be pretty dramatic. Did you see Jake storm out of the interview room and knock a light over? Hmm, I can't wait to find out what brought that attitude from our sweet Jake! Also, it looks like we will see yet another "crying over the balcony" scene. It wouldn't be The Bachelor without that!

I can't wait to hear what you all have to say about last night's episode! Please leave a comment and share your opinion. Even if your opinion is that this show is trashy and you'd never watch it :-P

Here's to hoping that Jake finds the right girl/the right girl finds Jake :-)


  1. Ahhhh, girl, a post after my own heart!! Acutally, I had to write one, as well...but mine was a little shorter!!

    I LOVE JAKE, as well, and would LOVE for him to be my husband. Okay, I said it and I'll try my hardest not to say it TOO many more times. ;)

    Yes, my ALL TIME favorite quote from any Bachelor came straight from the mouth of Jake: "God, family, friends. IN THAT ORDER!" As I said on my post...Melt my heart right then and there.

    Oh sweet man, I will marry you!! Oh no...said it again. Sorry!!!!! :) We were all having a huge tweet fest over the show last night. It was great!!!

    As for the girls ~ yeah, I don't think I should get started on that one. All I will say is, "Dear ABC, I'm sure if you chose NORMAL girls you would have the same amount, if not more, people watching!!!!

    This was fun! I will totally continue this convo with you next week. That is...if you want me to ;)

  2. I can't help but watch the Bachelor, too :)

    Usually I have one girl that I'm rooting for, but I'm still deciding. I liked a few of the ones that he let go. We'll see how it turns out!

  3. Can you believe I've never seen "the Batchelor" before? I think my husband has though...and that makes me feel even more 'out of the loop.' LOL

  4. I agree with you! I like Ali too and Jake is so sweet, I hope he finds a great girl!

  5. I love this show! I always watch it every season! I wonder how this season will play out! :-) Look forward to it!

  6. haha - this show is one of my guilty pleasures too. It's fun but kind of like watching a trainwreck...
    I hope it does work out well for him - he seems like one of the best bachelors I've seen on the show. I'm not sure what to think of the girls yet though.


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! I read and appreciate each and every one. Blessings to you!
