Oh my god! Let me preface this by saying I have never watched a season of “The Bachelor”. This was something I once wore like a badge of honor and was proud that ABC was unable to get their claws into me and have become addicted to watching 25 girls I would have hated in college attempt to mack it to some douche bro,who I would have also hated,and watch them try “to find love”. I prefer my reality dating shows with washed up rockers and skanks,but that’s just me. But after a lot of hullabaloo about this season,I decided I needed to check out the final episode. And it was a doozey!
First let’s start at the beginning of this reality hot mess. This dude Jason got dumped on last season’s “Bachelorette” and he ended up trying to find some chick he could be happy with and make a step mom,so naturally he decided to do this on national TV. Anyways,back when the show premiered they aired these lengthy trailers and promotions andsome poor schmuck had the unfortunate ability to discover,in the given three minutes he had caught of this melodrama,who would be picked by Jason. And he was actually right and beyond embarrassed for himself. So even if you weren’t a web sleuth,you would have found out the week this show premiered that Melissa,a 25 year old from Texas,was the chosen one at the end of this melodramatic mess. But this probably caused a major issue with the producers or who knows maybe they did it on purpose. Since this crap wraps up it’s filming about 3 months before the first episode hits the airwaves,ABC and the show’s producers must have understood what a snooze fest of a season they had on their hands and had to “fix that”. Well that is at least the rumor that was floating around,courtesy of Reality Steve. Steve,whose site is BLOWING UP right now,put two and two together and with some inside info said the producers wanted the more obvious couple,Jason and Molly,a 24 year old retail buyer,to not be the final couple only to get back together at the “After the Rose” show. So basically Jason would propose to Melissa and then break it off with her,to then ask Molly to be with him once everything had aired. And to make it even more dramatic,there are rumors that Melissa was made aware that this was all going to happen,but was still forced to endure the public humiliation. According to Jason,who spoke with PEOPLE,he wanted to break things off with Melissa and pursue a relationship with Molly off camera,but the producers said that according to his contract all communication regarding the relationship must take place on camera. Melissa was pissed when confronted and was obviously aware of what was about to go down. I thought she had every right to be pissed,especially since everyone knew what was about to go down. When she left,she explained that she wished that he had just dumped her from the get go so she wouldn’t have had to waste time with him. But when Molly came out to talk to Chris Harrison,the host of the program,she was all smiles and was very happy for a woman who thought she would be face to face with the man she was in love with and who had dumped her. This is where the show got all hokey and I think very poorly acted. Eventually,Molly and Jason decided to give it a go,but who the hell knows how long that will last since at this point there is only one actual real relationship still going from the ABC franchise. I think the tacky and in poor taste acting on the part of both Molly and Jason turned me off to this show entirely.
Anyways,if I didn’t blow your mind too much with this,check out the clip of last night’s “After the Rose,Part 1”. This stuff will drive you crazy,but lucky for me not crazy enough to tune into part 2,which is on ABC tonight.
Did any of you watch this? What did you think? Is this just the case of really bad acting or is this guy this dumb?
