What Happened at the “After the Final Rose”?

February 23rd, 2010 | 113 Comments | Posted in The Bachelor 14 - Jake

Throughout this whole season, outside of being off a week regarding the Ella exit from the show, I have told you everything that was going to happen. And it’s all come true. However, the one thing that had eluded me all season, was what form Jake choosing Vienna took. In my first spoiler column of the season on Jan. 6th, my guess was he probably proposed, but I wasn’t sure. For a guy that was hell bent on falling in love and finding a wife, and knowing that Vienna was the final one, back then I just found it hard to believe that Vienna was the final one chosen, but he left it at “lets just date”. I knew that he didn’t choose Tenley (that’s when you’ll see him pull a Mesnick next week, after he lets Tenley go). That was cut and dry. There was no Brad Womack job this season. He had chosen Vienna, but I wasn’t certain if there was a proposal, or just a promise to continue to see where things went.

Then the media tour started and it brought doubt into everyone’s minds. First for Jake, since he was being very coy in his interviews. Said some things here and there that made you think, “Hmmm, what’s going on here?” I mean lets be honest, how many of you have said over the last seven weeks, “Oh my god, he’s totally not with anybody. He looks so miserable in all his interviews. No way he’s still with Vienna or whoever. He chose nobody.” All the while, even though I noticed it myself, I tried to remind myself and everyone else, that Jake is not allowed to give away his ending. I tried not to put too much stock into his answers. He once said he came into the show on “Cloud nine, and left on Cloud nine.” Well, no one who left the show without a partner would say something like that, right? But then on the flip side, he threw out comments along the way of, “Hey, you know you don’t necessarily have to choose one of the 25″, and everyone started freaking out about that dissecting every syllable out of his mouth. All the while, I kept an open mind and thought, “It sure doesn’t sound like he’s with Vienna, but lets wait and see.”

Then came all the negative publicity about Vienna and her getting beaten like a red headed stepchild in the tabloids. Which then made everyone, including myself, question, “How in the world could he possibly have chosen this woman?” However, as I pointed out last week, remember that Jake made his decision back in November, and you couldn’t factor in everything you heard about her since, because Jake didn’t know any of that when he made his decision. So from that point I think people, although begrudgingly, began to accept that Vienna was the final one. But then the response turned to, “Well, he may have chosen her, but what’s their status now? But there’s no way he’s with her now. Listen to his answers. He’s saying this, and doing this, and his body language says this, and his mouth does this, blah blah blah”. And for a while, I didn’t know what their status was currently. All I knew was they left St. Lucia as a couple.

Jake was purposely being vague in all his answers because he knew what the final outcome was. For the first time all season, I will credit Jake Pavelka for one thing. He certainly pulled the wool over the media and the viewer’s eyes in his answers since the season started. After weeks of speculation and rumors galore, here’s a recap of what people have CLAIMED they heard happens in the end:

-They re-shot the ending after all the bad press came out about Vienna and had Jake dump her. Might be the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard.
-Someone out there (I think even commented on my site), that Vienna drops a bomb on Jake at the ATFR and dumps him. Brilliant.
-Some giant, boffo twist regarding Ali somehow playing a role in the final rose ceremony and her and Jake ending up together
-Jake is with someone who is NOT Tenley or Vienna, but was with someone from the show (preferably Ali for most people’s sanity)
-Jake dumped both girls, is with no one, single, and heterosexual
-Jake dumped both girls, is with no one, single, and says he’s gay
-One of the girls is pregnant and it wasn’t the one he chose
-Jake proposes to Vienna, she rejects him, so he asks Tenley back

The ridiculousness goes on and on and on. I’m sorry to burst your bubble. I told you it was Vienna on Jan. 6th, and I’ve never wavered from that since then. The “After the Final Rose” was taped this past Sunday in L.A., and I’m here to tell you this… I have a feeling some of you are going to be disappointed, since you’ve built this up to be some huge, gigantic, monstrous whale of an ending that’ll blow us all away. I said I have huge news regarding what happened at the ATFR taping, meaning, I knew what the final resolution was. And finally, here it is:

Not only are Jake and Vienna together and happy, but they are engaged.

Let the “boos” and hissing begin now…ha ha. Now what does this all mean? Not much really. I’m sure none of you will buy it, you all will expect them to be broken up by next week, and a lot of you will call it fake. Hey, don’t shoot the messenger. I’m just here to report the facts. At the ATFR show, that is what happened. Jake says he’s happy and he and Vienna are engaged. I do not know the rationale behind it, I do not know what they said to each other, how Tenley reacted, what Jake said to each woman, etc. So please save the emails asking what else happened at the taping. I do not know, but if I did, I would tell you. All I know is the outcome, and that is that Jake and Vienna are happy and engaged.

Do I honestly think these two will last? Not a chance. Plenty of couples have been happy and engaged at the ATFR show, only to be broken up weeks/months later. That’s why I say it doesn’t mean much. I’ll believe their love when I see them walk down the aisle. Which has about as much of a chance of happening as Heidi Fleiss does of making friends with actual human beings.

However, one thing I’m pretty sure you can mark my word on: If Jake and Vienna are PUBLICLY broken up before Ali’s filming starts next month on the “Bachelorette”, you can bet your ass that Jake will show up on Ali’s season at some point to try and win her back. I’d be shocked if that doesn’t happen. That’s a ratings bonanza if I ever saw one. Hell, even after writing this, there will still be people thinking Ali and Jake deserve to be together and will not give up that hope until they die. Those people need serious, serious help and should probably stop watching “Titanic” over and over. So I guess for you people, you just need to hope Jake and Vienna break up within the next 4-6 weeks so he can make a return to Ali’s season of the “Bachelorette”. If they don’t, I guess your pipe dream is over.

So there. That’s basically the rest of the season in an nutshell. There’s nothing left to report and nothing left to crack about this season. I’ve never misled you at any point this season, and I feel I’ve done a decent job in showing you sides of the show that you may not have known about. Now, it’s time to turn my attention to this Rozlyn interview, which should be one of the more interesting interviews I’ve ever conducted. My plan is to have it up on Thursday, but things can get a little crazy. I will do my best.

Any questions, comments, emails, praises, criticisms, email me at steve@realitysteve.com. If you want to join me on Twitter, my address is Twitter.com/RealitySteve. Stay tuned for the Rozlyn interview later this week.

  1. While the big announcement was anticlimatic for me, I will continue to read the blog.
    I’m thinking me and other people had a notion in our heads that the announcment would be some bizarre & outrageous scandel.its Not steve’s fault how much we built this thing up in our own minds

  2. Sorry Steve but FAIL! So you know how the Bachelor is supposed to end with a proposal—it did! I suppose with how things have turned up in past seasons, this could be seen as a shock but on the same note, compared to HUGE news you have brought up in the past–this ranks on about a 2 on the shock scale of 1-10. I suppose you had to promote it as HUGE news so more people would buy InTouch?? Not really sure…I’m sorry but this really isn’t much of news worth dedicating a full column to. You could have briefly mentioned that they are still together and he does propose in any one of your columns and mission accomplished. Maybe because I don’t hold Jake in that high of regard this isn’t huge news. Perhaps there are people out there who are just in shock–but yea–next time you promote huge–go big or go home. Here are the scenarios I was expecting from ATFR upon hearing HUGE NEWS:

    1. You attended, met Tenley afterwards and now she is your girlfriend
    2. They announced you as the host of Bachelor Pad
    3. Vienna’s Trailer Trash ex showed up and gave Jake a black eye. An all out brawl broke out Jerry Springer Style
    4. Rozlyn and the Producer announced they were engaged
    5. Ed and Jillian are having a baby
    6. Any of the scenarios mentioned in your column above

    Not criticizing–just reacting–not impressed….

  3. AMEN! @ ironicbarbie, funnystuff, lemon-lime, HeidiT, Sunnyside42, Phei, Garnet (who even expresses his grammatical tips!)…

    Yours is the attitude of what long-time followers of RS appreciate – the ability to share a combination of rational opinions.

    Unlike others who express complaints about how they made a choice to read a blog, which they consider lame.

    I’m guessing they don’t have much else going on in their lives, perhaps are insecure and need to pick apart others in a misdirected fit for the choices they make.

    Perhaps they need to refresh themselves on the definition of entertainment.

  4. It’s funny how all those haters who think this blog is so “layme” keep coming back and posting the news on Jokers and other sites and listen to the RS interviews. When I think a certain blog is lame, I don’t put it in my favourites. Just saying.

  5. @MegD55
    Love these scenarios.

    The only thing interesting to come out of this column is RS’s prediction that Jake shows up on Ali’s season. Finally, some speculation! Let’s talk about that. I’m still faithful in RS’s original read on Jake from the B’ette – that he is an attention whore who will do anything to stay on TV. I think he shows up on Ali’s season too, and he has been setting this up, maybe with ABC’s complicity and possibly even with Ali’s, by making head-scratching decisions and ending up with a young cretin that he certainly won’t marry.

    My thought (which I may have posted in a previous thread) was that Jake was positioning himself to be the first double-Bachelor in history. But, it’s easier to be the first person to appear in three cycles. If Ali’s the next B’ette, Jake can stay relevant for her cycle.

    @Phei
    I don’t agree that Jake’s predictable. Imagine watching the show without RS’s spoilers in advance. I watch with my wife and she doesn’t read the spoilers – she is certain Jake will pick Tenley. He did some unpredictable poop this season but we already knew about it.

    Jake is insufferably boring though.

  6. How in the world did you find that out?! Jake is not suppose to tell anyone who the winner is that quickly.. I know you revealed Vienna as the winner. I’m just wonderring how did you get this information. Jake is not to bright if he spoiled the show before it has finished showing.

  7. NYC- jake and ali “fan fiction” on the other blogs….hilarious and true!

    as far as the RS critques, to each there own. I LOVE the spoilers and enjoy recaps. the parts I don’t like I do not bother with much. The over the top defending of Wes and now Roz is a bit much. Lets face it, they are both arrogant losers-however I agree producers really ran with it and made them look their worst. However these two when given the rope, have hung themselves outside the editing room in other interviews. I can only hope steve is kissing their asses to get interviews rather than really believing they are decent people.

    If someone lied about me on TV or in the producers case, got fired, I would be suing the pants off ABC.

  8. Hey people, I am not in any way calling RS “lame”, but the “huge news” that turned out to be nothing more than a fart in the wind WAS lame. What made it worse was the way he attempted to lure readers to this blog by making statements about the huge news on Twitter. What he did is mislead people the same way that ABC does. How many times has RS bashed ABC for this practise?

    If you are going to bad mouth an organization for their deceptive tactics, don’t do the same thing you are bashing them for. This is all I am trying to say. I still like RS’s column, but come on. Don’t bash someone for doing something and thenn turn right around and do the exact same thing.

  9. @poddington “If someone lied about me on TV or in the producers case, got fired, I would be suing the pants off ABC.”

    yep, thats exactly what i say. thats the main reason i dont believe steve’s account that rozyln is telling the truth and the girls are lying. no way would she have handled that WTA without losing her mind on stage and suing someone!

  10. Just sharing…..

    Disappointed. Jake talked about looking for a woman with integrity and Christian values and ended up with the skank from the swamp.

    With regards to Rozlyn… I interview people for a living, I can read body language. I didn’t think Rozlyn was lying but I didn’t think the ladies were lying either. Somewhere between what Reality Steve says and Chris Harrison says lies the truth for “where there is smoke……

    Regardless of often Reality Steve defends Wes, the guy makes my skin crawl. Just watching him at the WTA made me want to take a shower. ICK!

  11. Phei :
    I have the feeling all of the whiners are mostly mad because there is no horrible or sensational ending for Jake and Vienna and you are taking it out on Steve. It is huge news because it is not what people expected. About every viewer thought Jake would not still be with Vienna and apparently they are happy and engaged. If it’s not huge to you, In Touch certainly thought it was. Just saying.

    Exactly.

    And it’s not like RS was promoting this for weeks. It was what, two days? Get over it, people.

    I don’t mind the condescending tone that RS takes in his blogs. I know he isn’t referring to me, and I find it somewhat amusing. I’m guessing, based on a lot of the comments I read here, that a majority of the emails, tweets, etc. he receives are from total morons, and he gets tired of it. I would too.

    I don’t believe for one nanosecond that Ali’s apology to Vienna was sincere. It was just damage control, since I’m sure she is not happy that she came across as such a beeyotch on the show, and more importantly, because she is the next bachelorette. That being said, if I were in her shoes, I would have done the same thing. She couldn’t NOT do it. But it’s still BS.

    On another note, didn’t it used to be that the final four generally got good edits? Especially the F1. Now it seems that no one is safe. When did this start? Maybe when DeAnna was on Brad’s season?

  12. Seriously Steve, you are so off this time because you dont discern who Jake really is, and that someone like him would NEVER pick someone like tart Vienna. He picks someone like himself…Tinley. But the reall “SHOCK” ending that will also “disapoint” those who just dont get how someone could do such a crazy thing — is that he will actually MARRY TINLEY IN ST LUCIA! Right on the show, yes. He said “I am the only one that has to live with my decision”, and he meant it literally. “Live With”. And he didnt say “Hey, you know you don’t necessarily have to choose one of the 25, he said “you dont necessarily have to get engaged”. He didnt get engaged. GAME ON STEVE!

  13. @Garnet: If you are going to call someone out for grammatical errors, perhaps you should proofread your own text. It is “sense” not “sence”…tsk tsk! People in glass houses…..

    Jake and Vienna are perfectly suited-they both rot. He’s so feminine it grates on my nerves and she’s just, well, Vienna. He chose the least good looking (I’d hate to say ugly) girl on the whole show besides maybe one or two others. He was obviously intimidated by Gia-did anyone notice on the “Tell All” episode how he looked annoyed her butt was in his face? Hello???? She’s a swimsuit model-any straight guy would be loving it!

    I’m not sure why everyone is so gaga over Ali either-I found her to be somewhat arrogant and cute, but not knock your socks off; I think it’s her nose that irritates me for some reason. The Bachelor will really be jumping the shark if it turns out Jake shows up on an Ali Bachelorette to pursue her-gag me! But of course we will all watch-like watching a trainwreck! Thanks for all the info. and funny banter Steve-a job well done whether you are contracted by The Bachelor or not. You definitely built up a large following so kudos!

  14. @dreamz: Your post is making me hear the music from “The Twilight Zone”…doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo……….lol

  15. Dreamz, please come back here when you are proven wrong. I’m sure I won’t be the only one who will be laughing at you.
    And to the posters who say Roz must be lieing, else she would sue: READ the contract the contestants sign. Steve has a copy somewhere on this blog. Roz can NOT sue the show or anyone else for the way she is portrayed and the lies they tell, because she signed those rights away when she signed the contract. Again, READ the contract.

  16. Meg: those scenarios came out of your own head. Now you’re mad when that wasn’t the big announcement. You’re like a 4 year old, when hearing she’s going to the store w/ mommy, starts getting ideas that mommy will buy you a big toy. Then, when mommy doesnt, you throw a tantrum.
    You had these wacky scenarios stuck in your mind. Its not steve’s fault it wasn’t what you were believeing it to be.

  17. Thank you, Steve! I for one appreciate hearing the other sides of the stories — sort of a “sanity” check, which is obviously needed when watching this show! You have definitely added to my enjoyment of this trainwreck which is Bachelor/ette. I’ve become a huge fan of yours over the past three years.

  18. You go girl, Dori!

    I had to go back and read your comments given all the scandalous retorts you inspiredd….

    I laughed when I read what you wrote. People are up set over THAT? Haha.

    By the way, I agree with everything you said.

    As for RS’s big scoop, their engagement is a big deal as we weren’t sure whether they’d break up, he’d choose nobody, decide to just be friends and see where it goes, or dump her for Ali. Frankly I don’t care one way or the other about Jake and Vienna, but within the Bachelor Scheme of things, RS’s news was big.

    What a bunch of narcissistic, ungrateful whiners the viewing audience is.

    You go, Reality Steve and Dori.!!!!

  19. You know why Fleiss will never give Steve an interview (nor Harrison)? Why they’ll never clamp down on the people giving him the spoilers?

    Simple. It works out in their favor. Increased viewership equals ratings, which means the network can get more money from their advertisers. And when contract renewals come about, Next Entertainment gets more money to continue more seasons of the Bachelor/ette. They’re using Steve much more than he thinks he’s using them.

    Gotta hand it to Fleiss, he’s got the boy wrapped around his pinky finger.

  20. @lemon-lime
    Well hey if mommy says she is buying me a huge toy and I get a yo-yo–yea–I will cry–sorry-I’m just calling it like I see it. And my scenarios were a joke FYI–examples of what would be huge news. Engagement–blah–that’s what is supposed to happen on the show and what they promote all season But if you(or Steve) think it is huge and a shocker–that’s your prerogative–for me–it wasn’t big news. I’m just commenting on my opinion–it is the comment section afterall.

  21. @meg: Nope, I didn’t think it was big news, as I said earlier. I realize things can’t always be as we want them to be. You’re just mad it wasn’t scandalous. Many think that jake/vienna make an odd couple, so the fact that they are still together is indeed a shocker.

  22. cjjjjj —

    With all due respect (not that you deserve it), you are a shallow idiot. Why should Jake love having a fat ass shoved in his face? All men would like it? Maybe men who frequent strip clubs. Gia is little more than a stripper. Men love and leave her. She is used for T & A and frankly that is all she has going for her. She is not that attractive either. Beyond her dumb little girl looks, she has a Joker expression and very coarse, goofy looking features. She is not classically beautiful. A lot of women easily outshine her — including Roz. What Gia has is sex appeal because she thinks she needs to shove her ass in a guy’s face to get him to notice her and thinks that the only reason she wasn’t picked is that she didn’t say she loved him. The truth is: THEY HAD NO CONNECTION. End of story. She is a dumb twit.

    As for what the other women look like, who cares? All of the women on the stage last night were beautiful in their own way. One woman isn’t more valuable than another because of her looks. I say this as a woman who is a tall, good looking blue eyed blonde — so don’t say I must be ugly, jealous or whatever to say this.

    You act like a dog in head who is exactly Gia’s type — some jerk who is just out to get some and use women for their bodies. As I said, you are an idiot, and probably no decent woman would even give you the time of day.

    You are the kind of guy who hangs out at high schools and tried to pick up women joggers because you are so turned on by our looks and just have to “get some.” Yeah, I know the type. We’ve all had to experience losers like you pestering us.

    Get a life.

  23. Well Steve, this was not what I wanted to read.

    I was – in my Pollyanna way – hoping that Jake would pass on both girls (because I consider neither Tenley or Vienna to be women). Sad to say that the “wonderful” airline pilot is just a totally predictable man swayed by a skank out of her designer clothing.

    I think ABC made a huge mistake by airing this season of the Bachelor. After the Jason/Melissa/Molly debacle (who in their right mind wants to see THAT wedding?) – they should have reviewed the scope of the show and either cancelled it or re-defined it.

    They will lose their viewers – they might as well cancel the show. I am gone…. as are many other intelligent, educated TV watchers.

    Ok – to be blunt – anyone with a brain will stop watching this crap. ABC has gone too far and if they want to redeem their audience – they will cancel this idiotic attempt at quality television.

    ABC you blew it – it’s NOT working!

    Any intelligent viewer would have shook their heads after hearing Jake “fall for” 6 girls…..then 5 girls……then 4 girls…………need I go on? No one can fall for that many women at one time. It is JUST not possible. Who coaches Jake? Do they not understand that people who graduated from Grade 8 actually watch this show? Good god, I could write this better than those who actually make money for working on this show.

    As I have said in my previous posts – if Steve is right – and Jake picks Vienna (gag) and they are now engaged (gag harder)….they deserve each other. She is a wanna be who will never be anythinganytimeanywhere……..and he will be in debt for the rest of his life.

    Ali said it best.

    “If he wants her ( Vienna ) then he is not the man for me.”

    You are correct Ali – he is not for you – because he is the kind of man who wants a trophy wife to make his d@&k look bigger. He is superficial and will never be happily married.

    And knowing Vienna – he will pay ……………and pay …….and pay for his choice.

    Be careful whatcha wish for Jake…you just might get it in the a@%

  24. @lemon-lime
    Be glad too, and when I do I should take over Steves blogg because I was the one with the real scoop! He will need to hide. .

    And if I am wrong…oh well, I will be just a little blogger on a site, rather than shouting from the rooftops like Steve. Currently, I’m at least closer to being right than he.

  25. Dear Steve,
    I first heard about your blog last season during the Jason fiasco. So I started to check you out, and could barely help myself from following you this season. I don’t know why, you are like that sick little drug that tastes bad and burns going down and yet is so easy to come back to over and over again.

    While I always appreciate an alternate view on things, I do have to say I think you are being a bit harsh AND as an avid reader of your site I thought you would appreciate knowing that reading every one of your columns there is at least one entire paragraph devoted entirely to a “please believe me, I am just the messenger, everything I have said is truth” theme. I am tried of seeing you on the defensive steve. I also think that you are being a bit hard on the people involved. In essence Chris is just a guy on contract doing what his job tells him to do. He like you in some ways is just a messenger and gets paid to do it. I don’t think he knows everything and I don’t think that he care to air some of what has and I am sure will be in the future, but he is on contract, doing well for himself, why not keep a good gig if you can?

    I feel very negative after reading your posts and I would like to see some more of the steve humor we know and love rather then your debbie downer critical judgements. Bring the fun back.

  26. No, you’re just a troll spewing ridiculous predictions you got from jake’s COACHED words.

  27. Sooner or later Vienna will cheat on Jake, and Ed will cheat on Jillian. History will repeat itself. “Bad Girls” and “Bad Boys” may be challenges that end in heartbreak.

  28. @SumWonNoes
    I agree that RS does sound a bit defensive at times, but I’ll bet it’s difficult to ignore the large number of emails from all the dimwits. There is plenty of humor intermingled with the defensiveness, so it doesn’t bother me too much (that comment a few posts back about Vienna’s George Washington hairdo had me howling). Maybe the posts would be better if he paid no attention to those with few active brain cells. I don’t know, but it’s his blog. I’m sure he’s aware of the criticism. If he chooses to change his tone, great. If not, I can deal with it or move on. I expect snark when I read his posts, so I wait until I am in the right mood to come here. I also expect inane comments and am never disappointed (I am not referring to you, SumWonNoes).

    Hey dreamz, go crawl back under your rock. And it’s “blog”, not “blogg”

  29. The only thing that would make sense for him to still be with Vienna is if he is really gay and Vienna is really a man.

    OK, on a more serious thought perhaps he wants more interviews, and to continue to be in the public eye.
    If he stays with her he will be seen as the hero that stood by his woman no matter what and it will give them numerous chances for interviews to tell their love story.

  30. I’m not sure why people think Vienna is sleazy. Can anybody tell me? The money she took out of account was hers. It was joint account. Fake boobs are pretty common. Do the Bikini pics make her sleazy? As far as cheating, well people do change as they get older. So we don’t know if Vienna would still cheat on somebody. By the way, the “chipmonk voice” spoofs of episodes moved to here: http://gnomebook1.blogspot.com/ If you were looking for them. Just found them.

    If I was to judge Vienna based on how she was with Jake on the bachelor, I’d say shes a loving girl with a big heart. :) Tabloids are all stuff that happened years ago if at all.

  31. Steve, can you say Eliza Doolittle? I’m sure you’ll have to look it up to get the reference, just as you couldn’t figure out the “From Here to Eternity” connection to the beach scene.

    I would like nothing more than to see Jake and Vienna happy, if that is who he chose. She wasn’t my first pick, but then.. I’m not marrying her. I take that back, what I would like more is to see reality Steve have his insensitive blog blow up. He’s shown he’s a bitter person, who lives for trashing the show. He talks about Chris being pompous and condescending, but RS is so much more pompous and arrogant and condescending than Chris has ever been on this show. Mike Fleis has said that RS is bothersome, but they don’t seem to care that much. Even RS admits he probably brought more viewers to this show. What RS really seems to want is his 15 minutes. And to this Pied Piper’s followers that say if you don’t like him, don’t read him: wouldn’t you say the same to him? If he doesn’t like the show, don’t watch? He can watch, he can blog, we can read, we can comment. I love reading the comments on his site, although it is sometimes aggravating to see so many people who believe everything he says, while what he is saying is don’t believe everything you read or hear or see! And regarding the few of you that talk about Jake being a Christian, and compliaining about his choice – if it’s Vienna – isn’t it a sign of a more giving and strong Christian to choose someone who needs a good spiritual backbone? What kind of Christian are you?

  32. To answer the person asking about fly_girl’s (Jake’s ex) posts on FORT I’ll quote some of them here;

    • Jake apparently doesn’t realize he made the wrong ex mad!!!! I just saw the People and he was on E! At the same time and I cracked up! Jake told me that ” his church” applied for him but after a few cocktails he said that he applied cause he was bored and that it took TB over a year to pick him… So it wasn’t “the church” that signed him up! I found it funny cause he never went to church! Also, it makes him look like a dog to say that he hasn’t been in love since his highschool sweetheart, so then he is saying he lived with Christina for that time and never loved her?!?!?! I believe in karma and she will give Jake what Jake deserves in a woman. Ps…I considering letting the tabloids know all the story but I don’t want karma bitting me!

    • Here’s the time line!! Christina 05-Jan 08…a f:::buddy until April 08….me may08-oct08 (broke up with me then cause abc called for the bachelorette)…dated a few other girls until the show….got dumped by Jillian…started dating another person until he got the call that he was the bachelor (2 weeks prior to the bachelor announcent)…..now filming the show. He has dated some great women so maybe the problem is him. He started calling me again from the time he left Jillian until 2 days before the DWTS announcement…he is a D-Bag.

    •Jake is totally a casual dater!! He hasn’t found love cause he thinks he is better than anyone. He will show off his acting skills on the show! I’m sure he wouldn’t be single had he not gotten the bachelor call…especially since he broke up with her to go on tv! The only reason he was hurt by Jillian was because she didn’t want him and he isn’t used to being rejected. He told me he is tired of flying so guess this is his way back into the acting world. Reid deserved to be the bachelor cause he wouldve been doing it for the right reasons.

    • So I’m the pool girl!! He recieved the phone call to be on the bachelorette while we were on a date back last October. Christina and Jake broke up in January 2008 after dating 3 years. Jake is only interested in Jake. He even made plans to see me again!!! He broke up with the different girl about 2 weeks before he started doing his photo shoots. Jake has fallen in love after high school but is doing the show to get publicity. He dates people and breaks up before he gets too close….that’s why he is 31 and single cause he breaks up with us to be on a reality dating show!!! Jake will get what Jake wants and that’s being on tv again. He stopped being an actor when the tabloids called him a wash up actor 5 years ago! Jake is a good actor so the truth will come out eventually. I feel sorry for the girls that meet him tonight.

    •The girl is Christina haney and it’s an ex of jakes…..I do know that jake dumped a girl to go on the bachelorette and that was who he was seen at the pool with and he broke up with a different girl to be the next bachelor. Jake isn’t as great as you all think. Trust me, I’m the ex.

  33. jake and vienna are soulmates…they have been trashing other people until they found each other and true love! go jake and vienna! they have been together for 1000′s of lifetimes

  34. You know what the BIG news is? There might be a Rozlyn SEX TAPE.

    Looks like I SCOOPED Reality Steve!

  35. I heard a rumor that Tenley could be the bachelorette? Is Ali definately the bachelorette for next season?

  36. Dwfgrl: I hate to get into this debate, but I can’t help it. The Bible clearly says you should not be unequally yokked. Which means, a christian can’t marry somebody who’s not a true believer. It has nothing to do with backbone. I’m no religious person, but my husband is. And he wants a divorce, I’m pretty sure it has to do with me not believing like he does.

  37. I thank you RS for giving us the scoop. This is the end of the road for Jake and Vienna. Since their courtship is not a fan favorite their fame is gone. No longer can they be of any use to the show. No TV wedding, no nothing. As a couple they are a hard sell. Vienna is pretty much what the other girls said she was, white trash. She may now apply for MTV’s, Jersey Shore. The girl is as dumb as a stump! So, both of them come out the losers because they are both fame whores. Without the cameras they will not last. If you go on other sites, you can already see the rehabilitation they are giving to Vienna, new make-up, hairdo and clothes. All to soften her up. But hey, they have each other.

    @ WES-You are so off base it’s hilarious! First off, I’m not a guy chasing high school joggers. I’m a girl (woman). I’m not as insecure as some others (ahem) and only speak the truth when I say Gia has a hot body. Her ass is far from fat (she is a swimsuit model after all). And I don’t think Gia is the prettiest of the season either<<not sure where you got that from? I think Rozlyn was prettiest, ironically.

    And, sorry, but Vienna is pretty much the bottom of the barrel of the girls looks-wise this season. I only speak the truth though I suppose beauty is subjective. I stand firm that I think Jake is very intimidated by the beautiful girls and that's why he wound up with not so much at the end. He chose a young girl who makes him feel "special" (for now). I wish them the best, but don't see it lasting a lifetime unless he's that much of a tool.

  39. Thanks for keeping this show in perspective. You’re on cue and it’s good to have someone like you find sanity in this ridculous episode of bachelor. Personally, I think Jake is a jerk, Vienna is a manipulator and perhaps they truly deserve each other. Ali should run for the hills, the tides getting high. Ali questioned the sanity of this show mid-way through. If she is as grounded as she seems, she should watch the episodes 14 again and know that she made the right decision in leaving. Jake doesn’t deserve a second thought nor does he deserve any recognition on the next bachelorette. His kiss-off to Tenley was a mouth full of gaggly-goup. His words were just as shallow as his kisses. Tenley and Alie get out and count your blessings. It’s getting deep in the lowlands! Run for the hills! :) Good luck girls!

  40. People should have booed-hissed Vienna while she was on After The Final Rose. Jake was a bore – and Vienna breathed some life into him. Why is it that the obnoxious, outgoing and outspoken girls ALWAYS get the guy? Why can’t the guy see through the viel of pseudoconfidence (ie Vienna), and choose the nice girl with good morals who is also playful and spectacular (ie Tenley) if he just gave her a chance to shine?!!
