The Bachelor and 90210
Yes, I have been sucked in to another season of "The Bachelor" and what is proving to be "the most dramatic season of the Bachelor ever" to quote Chris Harrison. In the last season of the Bachlorette, Jake was by far my favorite Bachelor. I just loved his one on one date with Jillian, slow dancing to Martina McBride performing live for them. It was such an amazingly romantic date, who didn't want to see these two end up together? And in case you are wondering, no, we did not name our daughter after the Bachlorette! :) We loved her name long before Jillian ever became the Bachlorette.
I just do not see Jake with any of these women. They all seem so immature and caught up in the day to day drama with the other women. I do not see him making connections with anyone. Is it me, or does anyone else feel that way too? If I had to pick, Ella seems to have the best head on her shoulders, but I do not really see him ending up with her in the end just because she is SO different from all of the other women. I have been reading a lot of blogs lately and it seems like there are a lot of you who share my love for the Bachelor. Everyone also seems to be perplexed on which one of these ladies is truly going to be his wife. I am sure this is the producers way of throwing us off the scent and just wanting us to get roped into the drama. I am a sucker for the actual romance and courting aspect of the show, they really need to start showing some of that! I refuse to read Reality Steve's blog because I hear he has revealed the name of the final girl. I guess we will just have to tune into next week's show! They are all taking an RV trip up the California coast where I am sure we will be witnessing attempts from one of the girls to throw Vienna out of the moving RV.
In other TV news, I was so bummed to hear yesterday that Jennie Garth is leaving 90210 to spend more time with her family. I have been pleasantly surprised so far with this new version of 90210 and it has been climbing the charts on my DVR play list. The story lines have been very well written and it can certainly survive on it's own without any of the original cast members. However, how will West Beverly survive without Kelly Taylor? I will certainly miss seeing her on the show. I guess my dream of a Brandon, Dillon, Kelly love triangle again will never happen.
