I don’t think I can watch Part 2 of The Bachelor After the Final Rose tonight. Last night’s show was just brutal and I felt like some of it was unrealistic and not genuine.
I did want to clarify that I am not upset with who Jason Mesnick ultimately picked. I liked Melissa just fine, but I like Mollie too. Now .. let me just say .. that I don’t believe for a second that they were “just talking” in the tent that night and I think that’s really wrong. But other than some things like that, they seem like nice girls. I liked Jillian too. I think they will bring her back as the next Bachelorette.
Again, I’m not upset with who Jason picked, but I am upset with the way some things were handled on the After the Final Rose show last night. I appreciate the fact that ABC got rid of the audience, but I truly feel that a painful breakup like that should not have been televised. And I don’t think Jason and Mollie should have been making out just a few minutes after he broke up with Melissa.
I feel bad for Melissa. She seems like a nice girl and I hope she finds a good Christian guy who makes her happy. After all that she has been through with this show, I hope she finds her happily ever after.
I feel bad for Jason Mesnick. I think he’s searching for something that’s missing in his life. And I don’t think he’s going to find it in any girl that he meets. Only God can fill that void. Can I get an AMEN?
Well, I must say that it’s a bit sad that I’ve had to resort to blogging about reality television. I like so many of the reality shows …. Big Brother, Dancing With the Stars, The Apprentice, Amazing Race. Some of them are like a bad train wreck, but it’s so hard to turn away. And so I watch … but in my own defense, there are only one or two shows that I try not to miss. Most of the shows I’ll watch if I’m home and the TV’s available. But there are a couple that I make a point to be home and I’ll “schedule” TV time to watch the shows.
