Bachelor Pad 2

“Bachelor Pad Finale” Recap – 9/12/11 Including Contestants Speaking out on the Graham/Rego Altercation & Final Thoughts on the Blake/Holly Proposal

As for the “Bachelor”, the bachelorettes vying for Ben will arrive in LA on Saturday and are sequestered from each other until filming begins next Tuesday night. I haven’t decided when I’m gonna start releasing some of the names and pictures that I have. Right now, I have seven. But those won’t all be getting released at the same time. Just going to sporadically release names throughout the next few months. A lot of of you have asked, “Why Ben?” just like you’ve asked with every single lead that’s been announced. Some like em’, some don’t. Just like with anything else ever in the world. There isn’t a single person, event, team, etc that EVERYONE in America universally agrees on. I hope you people realize what ABC is selling with Ben. Hell, watch that video package on him last night and it’s obvious. Is Ben the greatest looking guy in the world? Of course not. But they’re not selling his looks. They’re selling the fantasy of, “Wow, I could move to Sonoma and be married to the co-owner of a winery.” Don’t tell me the women on the show aren’t thinking that going in, because they are. And ABC will play it up.

Ben is a guy that in the 3 months since Ashley’s filming ended, started hanging out with Britt (obviously wasn’t exclusive, but they saw each other on more than one occasion), and within five days of his finale airing, had a date with Jennifer Love Hewitt that was set up through publicists. Lets be real: This guy is LOVING the attention this show brought. Not only to him, but his winery. This is going to be an 11 week commercial for Evolve Wines. This is just as much a business decision as it was to “find love.” Remember, in the history of the “Bachelor” franchise, all 15 seasons of it (talking about “Bachelor”, not “Bachelorette” people), not a single one of them has ever married the final girl they chose. Not one. I’m supposed to believe Ben will be any different after seeing him chase skirt while his season aired and afterwards? Lets just say I’m not holding my breath.

Chris stated last night the “Bachelor” begins airing on January 2nd, 2012, which is the exact same schedule as the previous four “Bachelor” seasons – the first Monday of the new year. Hell, we can pretty much give you the start date to the season after that too. Checking my calendar, the first Monday in 2013 is January 7th, so mark that down right now. 2014? January 6th. There. Now you know when the show will be starting for the next 3 years. And if this season starts January 2nd, you can pretty much assume it ends Monday March 12th, going off their past shooting schedules. Sometimes, it’s just really too easy with this show. Like shooting fish in a barrel. I just got finished laying out a whole season of what was going to happen on “Bachelor Pad” and every detail was right. Hell, I even told you stuff that never ended up getting shown. Now I’m on to Ben’s season and have more information now than I’ve had before the start of any previous season. Looking forward to more spoiling.

Last thing before today’s recap, and that’s that we have a lot of new shows starting up in the next couple weeks which will be recapped on the site. “Survivor”, “X Factor”, and “Dancing with the Stars” are all starting very shortly. As of today, I have not decided if I’m going to cover those in a “Reality Roundup” column on Thursdays, or, if I will assign writers to do it. I’m leaning towards covering those myself. They are not full recaps, a la “Bachelor/ette”, but, I’m guessing I will have plenty to say about those shows. Whatever the case, those shows, along with “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (which has a new column up today), will be the ones currently in the rotation on the site. We’re hoping to launch the first phase of the new look to the site by October 1st. Got a lot of good stuff coming up that I’m excited about that I’m sure will hold “Bachelor/ette” fans over until January 2nd. Keep it here for the next four months for all your spoilers on Ben’s season, and all your other “Bachelor” news.

    Black eye would not show right away. In fact it would be a few days before the colour would show and it would also change in colours. This is how cops (and sorry Erica)lawyers can gauge when the injury happened.

    I am totally convinced that Ames is gay and not out of the closet yet. He seemed that way to me on Bachlorette and this bizarre behavior kind of seals the deal for me. Not a big deal, Ames! If you are, no need to hide it or be ashamed…we are in the 21st century! Own it!!

  3. tngirl

    September 13, 2011 at 11:32 AM

    Ames is weird. I like Jackie and she seemed upset, so who knows what went on. As for Ella, I like her, fake boobs or not. She seems like a nice person. Erica is crazy but harmless. Vienna and Kacy, well they are both nuts and need to stay off TV. Holly and Blake make me want to puke! Michael should have punched him and told Holly to kiss off. I mean, if you are in a relationship with someone for two years, engaged, even if you did break up, you should care enough to tell them you are engaged to someone else before it is announced on national TV. Especially when you know your ex still has feelings for you. And Ben being the next Bachelor, BORING YAWN fest. Hope there are some interesting women vying for his attention because he has no personality. As for Graham and Justin, Justin is a jerk, Graham is hott, Graham wins…LOL As always, enjoy your column.

    That was one of the best final shows I have ever seen. Since I had not read any of the Spoilers it was all a surprise. If it was scripted who knows but it just seemed like so many people grew up and perhaps they were not as crazy as they appeared, most especially Casey.

    Erica by the way looked beautiful and maybe Melissa is not quite as neurotic as she appeared.

    What I especially liked was seeing the four nicest people in the house end up in the Final Four. It was great seeing Michael be true to his friend and certainly it was a risk because Casey and Vienna would never win and popularity contest. And then to see Holly and Michael win and then share in spite of the Blake issue warmed my heart. I still feel badly for Michael and am not a big Blake fan but if Holly and Blake are happy so be it. Michael will find a true love because he is a super genuine guy.

    Wish he were the next bachelor… because that dorky certainly very unattractive guy they picked will make for a very boring season.

    Again this was a great show.

    Thank goodness the train wreck is over! Hopefully Michael will get on with his life and forget all about Holly, she and Blake deserve each other. The look on Vienna’s face was priceless when Kasey and Jake hugged it out. Made her look like a fool, she wanted them to stay mortal enemies. I didn’t really buy Kasey’s tears though, I think he’s just sorry that he looked like such an ass on TV. I do agree about the negativity that he gets from Vienna, those two need to run quickly away from each other. And Graham’s little fit when he thought Michael was not going to take them to the finals? He went all gangsta and said its not about the money, yeah right! Dude’s got a temper issue!

    About Ames – are you guys serious?? There’s no mystery here as to why he broke up with her. HE. WASN’T. REALLY. INTO. HER. We’ve all dated people that we liked at first and then, after getting to know them better, decided that we weren’t interested. It’s called DATING. Jesus, it’s not like the guy married her, fathered her kids and left everyone scratching their heads. The dude just lost interest.

    What do you EXPECT him to say without hurting her feelings?? He’s being a gentleman and saying nothing.

    In my opinion, last night only gave more insight to why he left her. That chick is super needy, and definitely not as attractive as a lot of the other girls on the show.

  7. surrealtvfan

    September 13, 2011 at 1:08 PM

    I missed hearing from Gia last night. Either she stayed quiet, or they edited out her comments to Graham about the way that he treated her and then was so outraged that Michael could/would do the same to him. I lost respect for Graham when I saw that tirade, even if he seems like the most together guy ever on the show. And what does this all tell us about the show, for example Michelle Money was a nut job with Brad and then she is the most sane and sincere girl and gets a guy like Graham on Bach Pad??? I also got the same feeling about Kasey, that he is probably not as nutty as he came off on the show(s), but on the other hand, nothing has changed my opinion about Vienna. Did you see her shooting glares at Kasey when he hugged it out with Jake. She is just a self absorbed nut job with no editing needed.

    I think it’s hilarious how much RS gets under these contestants’ skin! So much that they tweet about him! Priceless. He’s like “The Great and Powerful Oz” of Reality TV.

    Holly and Blake – PLEASE spare us the pathetic tweets about how ABC editing screwed you?! HELLO???????? This is the Bachelor/Bachelor Pad?! That is what this show lives for? You sign up, you agree to basically ANYTHING. Don’t tell me you both didn’t know that?! Puhleeez..not buying it for one second. We dont care that you two met, fell in love after 5 minutes and want to get married, but for cripes sake – show some class and respect for Michael and wait until after the reunion? All that act showed was that you both are just out for the most publicity and attention you can get, without even a thought as to how it would make Michael feel. Sad and classless.

  9. HorriblyAddicted

    September 13, 2011 at 2:18 PM

    I personally think Ames thought he might be in the running to be the next Bachelor and didn’t want to appear as though he had a girlfriend. This would explain why he doesn’t have a good explanation. He wouldn’t want to admit that he dumped her in case ABC came knocking!

  10. wisewords

    September 13, 2011 at 2:32 PM

    Did you notice when Blake was asked about his behavior towards Melissa, he completely evaded the question and all responsibility? That’s because he feels none. And he never will.

    Here’s some big words for Blake: egomaniacal, megalomaniac.

  11. territ41159

    September 13, 2011 at 3:09 PM

    I agree with HorriblyAddicted I believe that he thought he might in the running for the Bachelor and wanted to be free from a girlfriend so he would be available.

    Graham looks like a tiny Elf and what women see in him as handsome beats me! Totally unattractive with zippo personality. I wish these people would get a life and stay off reality TV…no matter what amount of money they are offered!

    Ella looked much better pre surgical procedures! Looks totally fake.

    Erica looking very attractive…so this is possible after all.

    Michael just needs to man up and move on. He never really had Holly if she was so easily taken by Blake so quickly. He needs to accept that fact. Plus Blake is a heck of a lot better catch in every way: looks, intelligence, stability, earning potential, etc. Blake is very confident in who he is and what he is. Not a whimpy bone in his body. Can see how women are attracted to him. Hope he and Holly make it.

    And lastly, Ben. Totally a snooze fest coming up. Was hoping he’d have done something with that rat’s nest of a hair do, but alas not so. Not handsome at all so we shall see what he chooses…let me guess, she’ll have fake boobs and an airhead personality. Those seem to apply by the dozens.

  13. noelle49er

    September 13, 2011 at 3:31 PM

    I don’t want to speak ill of Jackie, and I have no reason to assume her level of intelligence – but perhaps she doesn’t have the “smarts” to keep someone with Ames’ brain power interested. That’s alot of pressure to hold a meaningful conversation if there is a mis-match of intelligence. Maybe Ames just had too much class to say that to everyone, and especially to her.

    My favorite part of the night… When they were announcing each cast member, and the audience would “woo hooo” for each one – and then there were basically *crickets* for Vienna and Kasey – I LOVED THAT. I can’t find one redeeming quality in that woman, and she is the most unattactively person I’ve even seen on that show.

    Gia, as always, looked great.

    Erica – you looked great. You looked like you haven’t injected your lips for a few months – FABULOUS! STOP OVER-PLUMPING and leave them alone. You looked much better than during the show.

    While I realize that the goal of most 20-somethings is to get their 15 minutes of fame, why in the world would any of them complain about how they are portrayed after editing? Seriously? I know you’ve seen the shows, you know what the producers do to storylines – if you’re going to sign up for these train wrecks, stop complaining! Or tell your agent not to set you up for the next reality show.

    Steve – as always, keep up the good work. We enjoy reading your spoilers and snarky comments each week. THANKS

    September 13, 2011 at 3:36 PM

    Steve, I totally agree about the “engagement” winning the money for Michael, and that Holly just benefited from it. Not sure Flake is actually that smart tho.

    Hope we never have to watch Jake/Vienna/Kasey again. Please ABC, do NOT subject us to more of their (fake) drama! Hope those two are very happy together and leave the rest of America alone!

    Fleiss and Co should be so proud of how they handled this whole season! I do believe even some of the audience was disgusted by the classless way they treated Michael/Melissa et al!

    Looking forward to the female drama on Ben’s show, and to reading your recaps! I’m sure it will be the most exciting thing about Ben’s season!

    September 13, 2011 at 3:46 PM

    The only thing I was interested in finding out last night was what happened between Jackie and Ames. I’ve read all of your speculations above and I can see all your points except the one claiming Jackie is not smart. I think she showed integrity throughout her season with Brad and on Bachelor Pad. I have always thought Ames was a bit weird and didn’t know what she saw in him. Is he gay? A possibility. Was he thinking he would be the next Bachelor? Perhaps, although I’m thankful it wasn’t him because he’s always skeeved me out. Personally I think it has to do with his family. I have a feeling he may have been influenced. And whatever the reason was…he’s a wuss for not telling her the reason. He’s a wuss for not at least breaking up with her without an explanation. And the simple fact that he could not look at her straight in the eye and looked at the floor the whole time, speaks volumes to me. I think the guy’s a mama’s boy. Plain and simple. Jackie is attractive and smart and classy. She can do better.

    And speaking of doing better…Michael…you got lucky. Blake and Holly are made for each other. My opinion of Holly is that she’s too immature to know what she wants and there are better matches out there for Michael. Those little victory dances were a bit of a turn off, but aside from that, I think there are better woman out there for him.

    Now Ben as the Bachelor. Not a yawning situation to me. I think Ben’s got a lot going for him and I find him, not only attractive, but with a brain on his head. And vulnerable. I think vulnerable is attractive. So whatever. I’ve said this every time I post, so I think even I’m ODing on my own words, but I will stick up for the guy when someone disses him.

    I had to FF past all of the “journeys”. I couldn’t watch them then, why would I want to see them again?

    I hope Krienna will be happy. Just wish they’d get the heck out of L.A.

  16. wisewords

    September 13, 2011 at 4:17 PM

    I strongly disagree with whomever said that Jackie was needy. Have you never broken up with someone? She was just hurt and confused by the breakup, plain and simple. She seems like a bright and genuine person and I wish her the best. We can all speculate about why Ames and Jackie broke up, but it’s all speculation. It could have been something as simple (but as important) as them having widely different political views–who knows? Ames seems like a guy who makes decisions with his head, not his heart, which isn’t all bad. So I guess we have to let it be. So sorry this one didn’t work out. They seemed like a great couple!

  17. wisewords

    September 13, 2011 at 4:24 PM

    I couldn’t help but notice how Jake had to get his last digs in at Vienna, accusing her of profiting off the break-up–all after his so-called public ‘apology’. If he truly was sorry, he would have shut his mouth and let it go. Every accusation that comes out of that guy’s mouth is 100% projection. You can know exactly what his own motives are by what he accuses others of doing.

  18. wisewords

    September 13, 2011 at 4:42 PM

    And for the life of me, I can’t figure out what all the male hype about Holly is all about. Perhaps some of you men can fill us in? She’s pretty enough, but no prettier than the others. If anything, it’s proof that even some educated men are not attracted to intelligence (not all men, but definitely many of the ones on this show!) Personally, I think it was the thrill of the chase. Hide and watch when all the publicity dies down and Blake and Holly are no longer in the limelight. She will cease to be attractive to him. JMO.

  19. peawry

    September 13, 2011 at 5:11 PM

    I know many people love Gia and think she is stunning, which she is, but whenever she opens her mouth and talks, all I can hear is Barbra Walters aka Babwa Wawa.

    Am I the only one?

  20. penguinfan01

    September 13, 2011 at 5:19 PM

    Comment on Kasey & Vienna connection, I always told my son growing up, there is a lid for every pot. If you look long and hard enough, you will find that perfect fit lid. That is what they are, a good fit for each other. It doesn’t make sense to anyone else, but think about some previous bachelor/bachelorette final picks that didn’t make sense to us either. I was glad Michael won the money, but not Holly, she played him all along to win the money, then blindsided him at the last minute w/the engagement news. I wish Michael had said Keep for his decision. I was sorry for Graham & Michelle though. RS always does a good job with the spoilers, makes it worth while watching. Ben as next bachelor, ugh gag.

  21. wisewords

    September 13, 2011 at 5:37 PM

    Peawry, Gia is from New York City–thus the New York accent.

  22. ALE

    September 14, 2011 at 5:25 AM

    Wisewords, Sorry, I don’t buy that Gia has that New York accent. She just doesn’t open her mouth and “speak correctly”. I kept thinking about JP the whole time he was on Ashley’s season…how wonderful it was that he didn’t speak with that “annoying” New Yaaaaawk accent. I never could see what all the fuss was about Gia…same with Ben…just ordinary looking in my opinion.

  23. bupkiss

    September 14, 2011 at 7:38 AM

    I thought this was an interesting interview with Michael:

    He claims that Holly led him on a lot more than was shown on TV (kissing and talking about getting together after the show), and that Blake told him he was taking Holly on the ski date just for strategy and that he would be “respectful”, and that they shook hands over it. He also wasn’t buying their “we tried to call you” excuse about the engagement.

    And then here he said what I’ve been thinking the whole time but I haven’t heard anyone else say because these people act like they don’t live in the real world:

    “Again, I don’t know fully the relationship. I’m sure they’re great and she’s obviously very in love and I really do hope it works out, but I think it’s tough. I think she’s going down a tough road. She’s removed herself from everyone she knows and loves out here and from her job and doesn’t have a job out there and is moving in with him, a dude she’s only known for two or three months. So, yeah, I think that just sounds tough.”

  24. reflects on life

    September 14, 2011 at 10:16 AM

    The Jackie/Ames thing is pretty obvious to me. Ames saw Jackie’s attractive classy poised fun smart stay-out-of-the-drama side on Bach Pad, then he saw her gossipy bitchy classless mean-girl side during their whirlwind romance post Bach Pad. If you recall, Jackie’s leading the anti-Michelle tirade in Brad’s 2nd season’s WTA is the side of her we didn’t see during Bach Pad. Ames is too classy to speak negatively of Jackie on air, and too non-confrontational to tell Jackie in private his reasons for leaving her. I think if it were just different political views, he would have just told her so and said as much on air, since that wouldn’t be casting Jackie in a negative light. So it had to be something he thought to be in poor taste in Jackie’s character.

  25. julie2

    September 14, 2011 at 10:17 AM

    While I (along with half of America) was hoping that Michael would choose “Keep”, as his thank you to the backstabbing and manipulations of Holly and Blake, I knew he wouldn’t do it. Girls, let Michael be a lesson to you… if you go out with a “good guy” he’s gonna treat you right, even when you don’t deserve it. Bad guys might be more exciting in theory, but good guys have class and Michael stuck up for his teammate to the bitter end, even when he cost himself money no one would have faulted him for keeping.

  26. bupkiss

    September 14, 2011 at 10:20 AM

    @ julie: agreed. Luckily I’m dating a Michael and not a Blake 🙂

  27. julie2

    September 14, 2011 at 10:20 AM

    The whole “Keep” and “Share” thing needs to change. After being partners throughout the game, most people are going to choose share. Chances that both players will choose KEEP are slim to none, so the outed BP contestants really have no shot at winning any of the money. Instead, the producers should change it to “his name”, “her name” and “Share” and let the other contestants vote on who they believe should win or share AFTER they’ve voted on who the final two would be. Michael deserved to win the whole $250K, Holly wouldn’t have gotten a vote without him and that would have not only been more fair, but more interesting tv!

  28. SherryfromD

    September 14, 2011 at 10:24 AM

    Wisewords, I agree with your assessment of Blake. He claims to be all upset they didn’t tell Michael before the show, but yet when they panned to his face several times when Michael was finding out, he always had this annoying smirk on his face, as if he was glad he “won”. Or maybe that look is just natural for him, as I’ve seen it many times during BP and Bachelorette. He seems smarmy.

  29. julie2

    September 14, 2011 at 10:33 AM

    I don’t think people are being fair in their assessments of Ames. I don’t think the guy is gay, I think he’s shown nothing but maturity and class, even when he walked away without a rose. He couldn’t look at Jackie, IMO, because he didn’t want to see the hurt on her face and had trouble saying, “I got to know you post-show and found out I’m really not into you.” They both seem like good people but she was not what he wanted for forever and he ended the relationship rather than string her along. Especially if she was really falling for him, I think he did the right thing by her. And not looking at her tells me that he does care about her feelings and didn’t want to hurt her. I say he’s a good guy, same as Michael.

  30. locondcoco

    September 14, 2011 at 10:39 AM

    wisewords- the “male hype” about Holly (from a male): i’ve commented in another post but will repeat it here, it comes down to personality. all the things Blake listed during his time in the hot seat is what makes her attractive. of course, i dont speak for ALL men, but it definitely would appeal to most. He said that Holly is fun, outgoing, and i forget what else, but those are the things i thought when my wife first asked me why guys are so into Holly, cuz she’s definitely not the hottest or best looking one in the house. she’s also flirty (as she self proclaimed), and that adds to it. a girl who is flirting with you, gives you attention. as a guy, it strokes your ego. guys like having their ego stroked.

    so there you go.

  31. bupkiss

    September 14, 2011 at 10:47 AM

    @ locondcoco, that’s interesting, because to me those sound like qualities that would make a woman attractive for a short-term relationship or hookup, but not for a long-term relationship or marriage.

    Am I just being naive in thinking that for LONG term relationships, most men value loyalty, compassion, ability to compromise, etc?

  32. reflects on life

    September 14, 2011 at 11:08 AM

    @bupkiss – Holly/Blake do appear to be more Lust than Love so far. Just like Jackie/Ames, they went hot and heavy and fast. It may turn into love down the road, who knows. But most men I know don’t see a group of women and go for the one who appears to have “the ability to compromise” LOL. The qualities you mention are ones that avail themselves over time & exposure.

    Having said that, I’d argue that Holly appears to be very loyal, compassionate, level-headed, drama-free, and compromising toward Michael, at least as a game-show partner, and even as an ex-fiancee. Her one-on-one convos with Michael about their relationship were probably the most real, mature, frank, and respectful conversations I’ve ever seen on reality TV. She sacrificed Blake for the sake of her partnership with Michael. Even Michael said Holly deserved her share of the money because she made an excellent partner & he could count on her completely.

    And I don’t think the world of men think Holly is All That. I’m sure she gets her fair share of admirers, but I think so do all the others females on Bach Pad. Even Vienna had 2 men on Bach Pad who were into her. The Bach Pad women are each very attractive women in their own unique ways. If anyone gets an unequal share of admiration, it’d be Gia. Judging from blogs and comments throughout the internet, it’s Gia who’d win the ultimate rose.

  33. aliontherun

    September 14, 2011 at 12:39 PM

    Even without RS spoilers this show is totally predictable and boring. I did not watch one epi start to finish this season. Next season they need to mix it up. Anyone with half a brain could come up with better ideas. Like, how about instead of them choosing their own couples, instead competitions dictate couples week to week. I would even like to see girls vs. guys.

  34. peawry

    September 14, 2011 at 12:47 PM

    Wisewords, Yes I am not at all trying to be disrespectful of a New York accent of any kind. I just thought she sound like she had a lateral lisp or something which made it hard for her to pronounce her “r”s. It sounds like Barbara Walters to me. For me voices can ruin someone’s attractiveness. The best example I can think of is David Beckham.

  35. SherryfromD

    September 14, 2011 at 1:28 PM

    locondcoco, he said Holly is fun, outgoing, easy to be around, makes him feel like a better person, uplifting. Said she’s everything he’s been looking for in someone, from her personality to the way she handles situations, her intelligence, her drive, her compassion. I guess I can see guys eating those qualities up…

  36. AJ13

    I rarely get this angry or judgmental over a person on the whole Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor Pad franchise, but to me Blake is the slimiest, opportunistic, parasitic vulture I’ve ever seen. He pulled a complete robbery on Michael Stagliano and swooped in and stole his woman, all while playing another girl (Melissa). What a piece of shit for a human being. He knew very well that Holly was at an extremely vulnerable point in her life, and like the vulture he is, saw an opportunity. Holly isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, and I think Blake took full advantage of it. Stag is a better man than myself because if it was me in his shoes, Blake would have to eat through a straw for months.

  37. Sunnyside422

    September 14, 2011 at 5:00 PM

    Blake has stated earlier that the show actually was an 8 hour taping and the looks and glances of the cast on stage could have been inserted at different times than those that were actually shown at the time of conversations. So not putting too much stock on the facial expressions at a given moment as they could have been in place at a different time during the 8 hours.

    Holly is a drama free person and easy to get alone with. She was respectful to Michael (could have been a bit firmer in letting him know she was not gonna take up with him again) but was treading carefully so as not to hurt him. By not being firmer, I believe she hurt him more…letting him think there was a chance. It was a done deal with Blake the second they both laid eyes on each other the first night. Both admitted the instant attraction. So here’s hoping it works for them…and they stay clear of any reality shows by Feiss and company who seem to take great joy in tromping on people’s emotions.

    Yes, Blake was dead wrong with his Melissa dealings and didn’t believe that the night of kisses would evolve in her totally falling for him. Maybe she needs to be a little bit more careful believing everything a man says to her in the moment of alcohol fueled passion. Wonder if he did approach her during the after party and say he was sorry. I think that would be the thing to do at this point…if she would indeed be receptive to his apologies.

    By the way Melissa looked very attractive as did Erica. In fact, all the women looked great.

    Wish Ames had been more forthright with Jackie. Me thinks he wanted to be Bachelor and needed to be free to do so. Could be someone from the show gave him the impression he was a strong candidate. Who knows. Jackie say she was completely blindsided. Could have been a lack of sexual compability…assuming there was sex involved with those two. Maybe Jackie came on too strong and Ames has been so tepid in his behavior toward Ashley, could have been the same with Jackie. So many thoughts on their breakup happening so fast.

    Whoa, AJ13, take it easy! Wow, you certainly are hard on someone that you don’t even know. Remember, this show is edited to make some look good, some not so good, and some downright eveil. I have a feeling that Blake got a totally bad edit and was make to look like the evil one. I certainly don’t appreciate Blake for what he did, but you are taking things just a bit too far. Chill!

    Poor thing Holly, thought her golddigger days were over, and that she hit the jackpot with Blake.. unfortunately, homeboy had a different plan when he got her that loaner ring from Neil Lane. Ohh well, they claim its true love, so be it. I truly love when people give me the slightest bit of attention too by the way, and its even better when its on TV..right? lol If that engagement wasn’t totally staged, I don’t know what is. Seriously though, she feels bad for Michael.. seriously? I highly doubt it. I’m sure she could have found a way to tell him, considering the whole proposal was well planned out in advance for the cameras. But really, I don’t think that mess deserves to be with either of the guys. Cant be all bitter towards Holly though, because..Michael why didn’t you choose keep?! Why! That dumbass does not deserve any of the money, stoopid! Figure it out. Gotta love “reality” TV.

    { Steve said: Either something went down that we don’t know about between Ames and Jackie, or that was just the oddest break up ever. We’re a month removed from it and Ames still really hasn’t given anyone a clear answer as to what it was other than he and Jackie are “different.” Sh**, every couple is “different’ in some aspects. Ames continues to be an enigma that I don’t think any of us will ever understand. }

    Are you kidding me?!!! What don’t you understand about Ames? It’s really simple: Ames is gay. He left Jackie because she is a woman, it’s as simple as that. He better just come out of the closet (and admit it to himself first). He’ll be relieved and be able to finally be happy.

    “Peawry, Gia is from New York City–thus the New York accent”

    No way, Wisewords. No way. I’m a native NYer and while I may have a “NY” accent…I don’t say dawg or goil or toity toid and toid, and I don’t speak like Gia. Gia has a speech impediment. I’m not sure what the clinical term is, but it sure as heck is not called a NY accent. She may have that as well, but there’s a speech impediment there too.

    Forgive me if this has been pointed out, but if Holly was covering up her left hand when she sat down, that sure makes it seem like she was complying with an arrangement made with the producers, and knew exactly how events were intended to unfold.

    That said, I can’t bring myself to condemn her too harshly, because she’s not exactly the crispiest fry in the bag.

    If Blake is capable of being so cavalier with the feelings of Melissa, the bird with the broken wing, what can Holly expect?

    As they say in South Carolina, “bless her heart.”
