Rise of the snow monkey

Our last Bachelor loved his snow monkey and clearly DDAHnna does too. I’m detecting a theme.

Lots to discuss. Feel free to feel sorry for Jason and make fun of Germy below. While you’re at it, go ahead and virtual HIGH FIVE each other…no wait…virtual NUG (then blow it up) the fact that Jesse came out on top…pink shoe laces and all.

Have early morning meeting. Recap this afternoon.

I knew it was all over for Jason when he got such a warm reception from DD’s dad…..oh ABC intern….you are so predictable with the ouzo shots for everyone.

After last night, I definitely think that Germy wants to be the next Bachelor….

I’m just going to cut and paste from the previous page because I’m lazy…oh, and wanted to add that I thought Shayne and Matt were very cute even though I was never a big fan of Shayne.

So here are my thoughts….

1) Seriously, DDah, you are not the first person on earth to have your heart broken. MOVE ON. The way her family kept saying to the guys, “well she had her heart broken before..” WHO HASN’T?! And they told Jason that he’d better not break her heart, but it was okay that she broke his?

2) #512 and #505 -Catherin Avril Morris (previous post) – I agree wtih you completely on both accounts. It’s incredibly rude of DDah’s father to instruct Jesse how to look. And let’s take a look at Jesse from the first episode to the ATFR. Remember the Natasha Beddingfield date? He didn’t have a suit to wear–she sent him one and told him to wear it. You think she told him to wear the suit her wore last night? One of the greatest things about Jesse is his individuality—and it’s almost as though she’s trying to change that….if that’s the case, he’ll resent her for doing so.

3) Didn’t Jesse look like a deer caught in headlights when OHCH told him that ABC was sending them to Greece for their honeymoon? Almost as if he was thinking, “crap, what happens if we don’t get married? do we have to reimburse them?”

4) the only other Bachelorette finale I remember watching was Trista and Ryan way back when. And I remember when Charlie and Ryan came to Trista on the Home Depot pedestal, SHE began the conversation. Why the hell did DDah not say a damn word to either one of them when they got there? She just let them fumble over their words, let Jason even get down on one knee before she said anything!

5) I think it’s a good thing that she didn’t pick Jason. If you’re going to date someone who has children, you have to understand that you will always come second (which you should!). I don’t think DDah could handle being second to anybody right now. It was easy in ABC land when Jason didn’t have all the responsibilites of Ty; I think it would have been a rude awakening for DDah if they took that relationship to the real world.

I dont know, I was also really cranky while watching, and I’ve never been a DDah fan, so maybe I’m just reading into it all too much.

And I was so right when I said that Brad’s happy ending was DDah “forgiving” him. “I have more compassion for Brad Womack..” good. Now Brad can sleep at night knowing you put away his voo-doo doll.

Let’s discuss the massive build-up of the “major announcement” at the “after the final rose show” only to be told they have set a date? I was hoping for a surprise pregnancy.

She had two really great choices. My only regret was that she let Jason get down on a knee. I didn’t understand why she didn’t speak first like the Bachelors normally do. I can’t remember the other Bachelorette finales and what those girls did as far as speaking. Anybody with a better memory?
But I will say I don’t think it was malicious on her part that it happened. I think she was happy to see him and not sure what to say and he went down FAST (or so the editing appeared).
I was rooting for Jesse so I was happy with the outcome.
There was still too much Brad talk last night but Brad should be happy that she now has respect for him and is grateful he let her go on to find Jesse.
Not sure if I want Jason to be the Bachelor unless ABC steps up the quality of their women. He deserves a GREAT girl. But I thnk he deserves his own fairy tale!

#3 Sue – Amen to point #1! I just wanted one of the guys to speak up and say “I hope she doesn’t break my heart like Brad broke hers.” AND “I’m glad Brad broke her heart or she wouldn’t have come looking for me!”. I hope they can ban the word Brad from their relationship.

Ditto on the fact that Germy seems to be lobbying for the next Bachelor spot. Am I wrong, or was he wearing the same thing on last nights show that he wore the night he was supposed to be sent home? I think they tried to make us think he came back tot he Bahamas to talk to her, but I think it was the same night.

I can’t believe she chose the guy I’d have chosen! I’ve never, ever gotten it right before. I felt so bad for Jason though. He seems to be such an amazing guy and I personally think he’s incredibly HOT!!! She couldn’t have made a wrong choice with those 2 men.

Anyone else think she was laying it on pretty thick at the ATR show? I can understand being excited but to me it seemed to be forced. I’m a little shocked that Jesse went from admitting that he didn’t know if he was ready to ask her to marry him, to setting a date. I hope he can manage to retrieve his manhood and take some leadership in that relationship. Or maybe I’m wrong and he’s exactly where she is at with all of this. May 9th is not that far away, but far enough that they may come to their senses before then.

BTW…I bet the family was disappointed! Well, not sis-n-law but for sure Sis was let down.

All I can say is…Jason was truly hurt by DDAH. Was I the only one who cried for him (and Ty)?

I did love the comment…”I said I had body armor, but I don’t”…more boo-hoos all around.

I predict that Matt and Shayne aren’t as happy as they seem. I call BS with that whole little happy scene last night. Something was off. Did anyone else notice?

I think it was incredibly insensitive of DDah and Jesse to practically have sex on the stage with Jason nearby. What a slap to his face……

I heart Jason.

I only got to watch the last hour, so I’m looking forward to the recap!

Does anyone know the timeframe — when did the season tape? Was the ATR show live last night?

Sorry for another post so soon, but I have to say this. I will however put ot the disclaimer that I am not defending DeYahnna!

It is absolutely healthy for kids to witness their parents putting their spouse ahead of even them. That doesn’t mean that the child should ever be made to feel that they are less important. When kids see that Mom & Dad, or step-Mom & dad, etc. make loving eachother a priority it actually gives the kids a better sense of security. If D had chosed Jason, and the relationship had worked, Ty would have benefitted from seeing his father treat his step-mom with honor. He’d have learned how to treat his future wife.

I feel for Jason, but don’t understand why De is so to blame for “letting” him go down on one knee. Of course it may have been edited out, but why would he do that before she had assured him that it was what she wanted? I think what happened is just what she said – she was so emotional about seeing him and it happened so fast . . .

With Jesse on the other hand, she didn’t say anything but she had such a silly grin on her face from the first moment she saw him come down the walk – she couldn’t possibly have meant no. I have loved Jesse from the first night – I woulda picked him just for having the guts to wear that crazy jacket (and she did, now I am remembering…first impression rose). And remember her sister-in-law said she was such a free spirit – she’s got some major sense of adventure. I know ABC plans the dates, but I have a hard time imagining, say, Shayne, swimming with the sharks. So I didn’t ever have to come ’round to seeing Jesse as a good pick – I had to come around to seeing De as a good choice for him, and finally did. So HOORAY for the ending. Any guy who can put a smile like that on your face, you should try very very hard to keep around for the long run.

Jesse’s demeanor totally changed. I think he had an “Oh Crap” moment when he realized that she picked him. His wild and fun side has gone away. Not sure if it is because she has totally changed him or b/c he is so scared and doesn’t know how to get out of this situation… I heart Jason and was sad for him.

Sorry to all on Team Jesse, but last night pretty much made me want to throw up! Not only do I feel that there’s no way he’s ready to be married (I mean, c’mon, he pretty much had a nervous breakdown on the way to buy the ring), but a couple of weeks ago he was telling his dad that he wasn’t sure he was ready to get married! And what ever happened w/ this mysterious girlfriend on the side who he supposedly dumped before the final rose ceremony? Don’t get me wrong, he’s v. cool, and I’m sure he’s a blast to hang out with. BUT, I’ll be totally shocked if they make it to that May 9th date, or whatever.
“Scorned Jason” looked hotter than ever, and I hope he finds someone completely fabulous!

OMG…………………Thank God its over!!!!!!!! I have to start this posting out with sending out my apologies to Brad. Once again DDHanna AND her family attempted to throw Brad under the bus. I heard Brad referenced somewhere in the vicinity of 7 or 8 times during both shows. Her sister said that “Brad crushed the family” and DD said that she talked to Jeremy because “she didn’t want to be like Brad and run the other way and not deal with it”. Brad, I am sorry, sorry, sorry and if there is ANY doubt in your mind rest assured…YOU DID THE RIGHT THING!!

Ok, I need Jason to be the next Bachelor. He almost made me cry last night. I felt so bad for him. I sincerely felt like he was in love with DD. I was completely mortified that she let him get down on one knee when she knew that she didn’t want him.

I had a feeling it was going to be Jesse, even after he did a “hit and click” with YaYa.

Is it just me or did anyone else notice that she didn’t really say anything to the guys at the pedestal? Normally at the final rose ceremony, the Bachelor/Bachelorette spends some time talking about the person and why they did or did not pick them. Of course “America’s sweetheart” (as always) had to just stand and let the guys drool all over HER. Brad, Graham, Jeremy and Jason – congratulations!
