Jason and Molly’s Wedding
This was pretty much what I expected it to be. Showed how it all came together, showed them living together in Seattle, talked about the media criticism, a lot of crying, then showed the wedding. I don’t know what anyone else really expected out of all this. It’s a wedding. Not too many ways to really trick up a wedding. Sure, it was more expensive than your average wedding, but other than the weather not cooperating, it pretty much was like every other wedding I’ve been to. If you’re one to dissect if the napkins matched the head pieces on the table, be my guest. I have more important things to ponder, like, why the hell were the bachelor and bachelorette parties in the same city? And why did they have to meet up with each other at the end of the night? C’mon, that’s not realistic. Any couple who agrees to see each other on the same night as their bachelor and bachelorette parties, well, lets just say that’s a bit much for me. Congrats to them, they’re in love, but holy hell, go enjoy yourself. For one night you can afford to be away from your future wife and live it up a little. So that’s a message to my future wife in case you happen to be reading this. Don’t expect to see me the night of our bachelor party, let alone that whole weekend. Just like I won’t expect to see you when you’re out with penis balloons on your head bouncing around from bar to bar.
Very cool to see the paparazzi getting arrested while trying to get in to the wedding. Guess it really didn’t all matter in the end, since there were pictures up on the internet within hours of all that going down. Basically nowadays, it’s impossible to keep anything under wraps. Try as ABC may to hold $5 million lawsuits over people’s heads for talking, the bottom line is unless they start tapping phone lines or hacking into personal email accounts (which was illegal last time I checked), stuff is going to get out. We are living in a day and age where everyone has to have an opinion about something four seconds after it happens, so, in that aspect, when the wedding is filmed nine days before it airs, or the “Bachelor” chooses his final girl 3 ½ months before it’s shown on live television, people are going to find out. Hell, someone has already emailed me a picture from the mansion in LA where Ali has already started filming her season. I looked at it, then deleted it. Didn’t really show anything of significance, and honestly, I’m going to hold off on talking about Ali’s season til we get closer. Sure some names of the guys are being leaked, but I don’t care. Let others spend hours a day on the internet finding stuff out about these guys, when come May 24th, I’ll probably just spoil it all by telling everyone again who wins. I’m fairly confident I’m going to have some good info next season.
Back to the wedding, it was interesting to note that Charlie and Sarah were in attendance. Not so much because they’re still one of the few couples still together, but that they’ve never even met Jason and Molly before that wedding. Then again, Charlie and Sarah are pitching their own reality show to the Oxygen network now, so I guess more camera time for them is a good thing. I still say their live finale was the best one this show has ever had and I don’t know why they haven’t done one since (That’s on my list of questions for my Chris Harrison interview which I’m sure is never going to happen. But hey, can always have my questions ready). Trista and Ryan were there. One question I have for Trista: Is she a fan or not of Ryan’s facial hair? Half the time when we see him he’s clean shaven, and the other half he seems to go with the Grizzly Adams look. Personally if I were a woman, I would think facial hair, especially excessive amounts, would drive me nuts.
DeAnna and boyfriend Stephen Stagliano were there, yet Holly and her boyfriend Michael Stagliano weren’t. I hope if DeAnna and Stephen do end up getting married, this show doesn’t count that as one of their “successful” couples. They couldn’t, could they? Stephen wasn’t even on the show.
As for those who have emailed me inquiring on if I really followed through with my promise to buy Jason and Molly a wedding gift, the answer is yes. I ordered it off their registry, and they’ll be receiving it this week. Just because I don’t agree with what the guy did, and just because he and I were in a mini pissing match a year ago, doesn’t mean I wish ill will on the guy. Figured it was the least I could do after ruining his big surprise last season and the amount of sh** I gave them. Hey, I’m a good guy at heart. I just like to poke and prod when I know I can. It was a giant story back a year ago, everyone wanted my opinion on it since I was the one who told people what would happen, and I’m not really one to hold back. Doesn’t mean I hate the guy. Just shows what a caring, compassionate, loyal, and kind- hearted person I am. I just on occasion have the tendency to act like a pompous, smarmy, condescending asshole. But that’s very rare.
