A few things to go over here regarding the news in “Bachelor” world. I think some of you are confused by what I said about Rozlyn’s appearance on Monday’s “Women Tell All” episode, so let me be as clear as I can. Since Rozlyn spoke to RadarOnline, it pretty much confirmed what I had heard. As I mentioned, Rozlyn never once confronts Jake on the show. They’re never on the same stage together at the same time, nor does she ever interact with him at any point. However, some of you took that to mean when she was brought out, it was just her and Chris on stage. Not the case. From what I heard, which was then confirmed by Rozlyn in her interview, she was kept sequestered from all the other women during the whole taping. She says she was backstage “for hours” while taping started, and didn’t even know what was being said since they weren’t letting her listen in. When they brought her out for her segment, obviously all the girls had already been there the whole time, and that’s when everything started for her.
Which brings up quite an interesting point. This has never been done in the history of a “Tell All” show. All the girls they talk to, they’ve kept on stage the whole show. So why isolate Rozlyn from the rest of the girls before AND after the show. Remember, immediately after they were done taping Rozlyn’s segment, she was taken off stage and sent home. No after parties, no mingling with the girls, nothing. I think it’s rather obvious why this occurred. Because they knew if they gave Rozlyn a chance to talk to the girls, she’d find out what producers were telling them to say to her and their cover would be blown. Plus, if she knew what an ambush she was about to walk in to, she could’ve prepared how she’d respond, and they certainly didn’t want that. It’s all very calculating and manipulative on ABC’s part, and I’m sure Rozlyn isn’t going to come off looking good on the show at all. They painted her as the villain from the first episode, and they wanted to make sure that role was played up by telling all the girls before they went on stage what to bring up in regards to Rozlyn’s situation. I think it’s pretty easy to see what went on that night, although how much of it that will be shown on Monday is a completely different story.
Another thing being brought to my attention was the video footage they showed Monday of the finale in two weeks. Some of you are under the impression that by the footage they’ve shown, you think he’s rejecting both women. I said it on Jan. 6th, and I’ll say it again: He chooses Vienna. The only thing I don’t know is if he proposed, or just asked to continue dating her. I’m kinda surprised that you would look at something they gave you in a promo and come to that conclusion. Lets remember they also ran previews earlier this season that:
-Had Tenley saying she was pregnant (Edited to be false)
-Had Jake kicking over a light and storming out of a 1-on-1 with the camera (Never shown)
-Had Ali placing a phone call asking to come back (Was never going to happen)
-Saying Rozlyn returns to face Jake for the first time (Doesn’t happen)
So I wouldn’t put much stock into what they show you in the previews. This show is notorious for showing clips to make you think one way, when in reality, that clip is taken out of context. Of course they want you to think something is fishy about the final rose ceremony. Keeps you interested. I think this show has come to accept that because their finale is filmed months of advance of it actually being aired on television (in this case, the final rose ceremony was filmed the week of Thanksgiving and doesn’t air til March 1st), they realize stuff is going to get out. It’s practically impossible not to. Three and a half months? You don’t think people are going to talk in that time? They just didn’t think that someone would’ve given the results out two days after the first episode aired. You’re welcome.
A lot of you are asking me about the Jason and Molly wedding and the details behind it. Honestly, I know nothing. The only thing I heard is that the wedding is sometime next weekend. Don’t know where, don’t know who’s invited, and honestly, I don’t really care. It will air on TV Monday night, March 8th. Now, as many of you know, we’re having a get together in Vegas that weekend the 5th – 7th (by the way, anyone still interested you can contact me and I’ll give you details). However, that’s not all I have going on that weekend. Sunday morning, I have a 10am flight out of Vegas since I have to be in New York for work starting that Monday. So there’s a good chance I’m not going to watch Jason and Molly’s show live on Mon. the 8th. And even if I do, I won’t have a column up the next day. I’m in NY from that Sunday til Wednesday, so give me a couple days once I get back to watch it and then write about it. I’m not expecting much major news to come from the actual wedding. Unless of course, someone stands up in the middle of the ceremony and objects to them getting married. Or maybe Melissa Rycroft-Strickland parachutes in and crashes the whole thing after getting embarrassed by them on national TV. That would be fun.
Because I’ve been kinda busy this season, I’ve rarely had time to look at the comments people post on my page. I’ll skim through them on occasion just to make sure no one is writing stuff completely out of line, but do I sit and go through every one with a magnifying glass? No. Comments are always coming in all throughout the day. I just don’t have time to go over all of them. However, some of you seem to be up in arms regarding a post by someone who said they live near Vienna and she’s been dating someone she knows for the last couple weeks, and at the ATFR filming, she’s gonna drop some bomb on Jake. Really? You people believe this? Someone who anonymously posts on a comment board without any evidence or names to back up what they’re saying? The reason I don’t out my sources is because they trust me. In return for their information, I promise not to reveal who they are. So if someone is using a username on a message board, we obviously don’t know who they are, so they should be free to use names and where they’re getting their information from. Do you realize how easy it is to write something anonymously on a message board saying something to the effect of, “I know someone who knows someone in production, and they told me this”, or “I know someone who knows Vienna and she’s dating so-and-so”. It’s ridiculous. I’ve given my thoughts on message board posters plenty of times in the past, so need to get into it again. But because a friend of someone who claims to know Vienna says something, I wouldn’t take it face value. C’mon. Vienna and Jake certainly may not be together at this point, but it’s definitely not because an anonymous poster wrote it.
