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.


  1. I am soooo hooked on the bach this year.... So much drama.... I agree the girls seem really immature and um catty to say the least.... I liked Allie and now she seems to be the ring leader in all the drama.... Michelle was CRAZY sooo glad to see her go, Elizabeth wasn't real just playing games, and Vienna I like her but I just can't figure out why no-one else does....we will have to see....

    I don't watch 90210 anymore but I love Jennie Garth....

    Summer :0)

  2. I dont watch the Bachelor but love 90210. It is not going to be the same without Jennie Garth on there.

  3. The bachelor is such a guilty pleasure, but I agree about most of these girls--they all seem so petty! I'm sad about Jennie Garth leaving, too--I love 90210!

  4. I love 90210... I feel so dumb saying that! lol... but that is sad she is leaving. I really like her!

  5. My favorites were Tenley and Ali but after Monday night, I'm not sure about Ali. She does seem to be the ringleader of hating Vienna. Not sure I like any of them right now. I was actually hoping Reid would be the Bachelor. I like Jake but hate the way he always says "she's really just a great gurl."

    The bachelor has once again sucked me into the show fact..I was yelling at the tv while watching's a good thing my boyfriend isn't home that'm not sure who he will end up...I really liked Vienna..until she came across fake in apologizing to the girls.'s all just a bunch of drama...maybe Jake will do what Brad Womack did..not that I want him to...I hope Jake will find a great girl..even if it's not the show...I really like the girl with the southern accent(the one with the little boy Ethan)...

  7. Oh Karen, you read my mind. I love both of those shows! If you like spoilers check out seriously, don't go there if you don't want to know the outcome of the bach! My DVR is filling up with old reruns of 90210 for those 3am feedings when half-pint arrives, such my guilty pleasure!
