I Hate to Give Into the Hype but....

Ok, so I really hate giving into the hype for things like this. I was reluctant to even discuss The Bachelor because I know it's all ABC's master plan to do things the way they did to get more hype. I realize by blogging about it, I am contributing to the hype but whatever. Freaking CNN is talking about The Bachelor and my blog has a whole 64 followers, which is great, but it's not like it's gonna make headlines or anything. Plus I promised my friend Elaine that I would re-cap it for y'all that are boycotting it like Daily Jen. **WARNING: SPOILERS FOLLOW! DON'T CONTINUE IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED YET!*** So, in case you've been living under a rock for the past day, here's my recap of The Bachelor finale! Basically it was down to Melissa & Molly. He picks Melissa, proposes, then 6 weeks later he dumps her in front of all of America. (In his defense I did learn that he is under a $5 million contract that requires him to do this.) Then, he brings back Molly and asks her for another chance, telling her he made a mistake, blah blah blah. That was last night... Then tonight there was more! Tonight was The Bachelor: After the Final Rose pt. 2, or as Jen put it After After the Final Rose! haha Tonight was filmed 6 weeks after the show last night, so in total, 12 weeks after the Season Finale when he proposed. Tonight, they brought back Jason & Molly & they said how happy they were... blah blah blah. The audience got to give their opinions about what went down on last nights show, and I was surprised at how mixed the reactions were... I expected the audience to be full of Team Molly members! They made really good points... one guy (yes a guy was at The Bachelor show!) pointed out that if he were as emotional after saying goodbye to someone as Jason was after saying goodbye to Molly, he wouldn't have gone from that to proposing to someone else. I couldn't agree more! I've seen other seasons where they say I like you, but I'm not ready to propose. What is so wrong with that?!! I guess it's not good enough for ABC... They also brought back some of the rejected Bachelorette's before the final 3, who they said were some fan favorites. Um... I have to ask whose favorites these women were?! It was Naomi, Kari (who I don't even remember), Erica (drama queen), a few others who I don't remember, and Stephanie (who is okay, but not my favorite personally). They gave their opinions on what Jason did, and surprise! They pretty much defended him... I don't know about you, but that surprises me! Then, Jason came back and told everyone he really cares about Molly, and if he didn't, he wouldn't go through all the hype he did to get to this point. They said they've spent a few weekends together in the past 6 weeks, and things are going "really well." They both look really happy... so I'm happy for them. I was always torn between Molly & Melissa! They are both so charming in different ways. I still disagree with the way the whole dumping thing played out, but I wouldn't back out on a $5 million contract either... not gonna lie! Then, finally, they announced the next Bachelorette! Jillian will be the next Bachelorette.. airing May 18th (I'm pretty sure that's the right date). I'm really excited about this; I always liked her from the beginning! Her & her hot dog theory cracked me up on the 1st show! So, overall tonight made me hate Jason less, and I decided Molly & Jason are cute... but I still feel horrible for Melissa that every television station is replaying the proposal and the break up over & over again... plus the new People magazine is featuring Jason & Molly on the cover declaring their love some more! Here are some highlights you have to see/read if you haven't already: Jason on Jimmy Kimmell Jesse Csincsak's thoughts on the finale (The guy DeAnna chose over Jason in case you forgot who he is).

That show hasn't aired here yet... I don't think, but I thought it would be damage control.

I really feel if they hadn't shown some element of the break up then we would have been left wondering what happened. The network should have banked on it, totally, but I think they went at it the wrong way.

The whole concept of this show is so absurd to me, it just doesn't seem healthy - but it sure is drama! I bet their ratings went through the roof.

sigh....no one will ever be Trista and Ryan.....

I do still feel bad for Melissa, just because of the way things went down, and now she has to see those two together all the time, on tv, magazines, etc.

BUT, that being said, she's certainly better being out of that situation. I don't trust him as far as I can throw him.

p.s. Thanks for the "shout out!" : )

This seems to be the entertainment headline this week! All these reality shows make me sick sometimes....hehe.

I already know what Mrs. Nurse will be doing in May :). Hopefully, Jillian is less of a jerk than Jason!

Thanks for the recap. I was wondering what more there was to say about the whole mess. I can't believe the other women were defending Jason. It is like he has them under some sort of spell. He's not even that cute. I like the Bachelorette better than the Bachelor so I may watch. I boycotted for one night. That should teach them a good lesson. :)

ok-i didnt watch the show but i wanted to know what was going on so i watched the finale online and then the after on tv.
he annoyed me, i felt like his lines were rehearsed or something.
i WAS highly impressed with the way that melissa handled herself though...I dont know how she was all season but if that was me i would have gone threw the roof!

I feel like I missed out on some drama by not watching this show.

But, that is too much drama for me, and unless the poor girl knew all along, that's just not right!!

Patrice your a star for this! I live in the UK and on Twitter all I have heard is this show and never really knew what the hype was. I can now see why! Thanks for updating girl! x.
