.......Did that just happen? Did that really just happen?
I have come to realize that perhaps I am a little too invested in The Bachelor. I felt my heart stop multiple times tonight and I think at one point my fingers and toes went numb.
I don't even know what to say. (I am sure I will think of something, though.)
I was absolutely ELATED when Molly stepped out of the limo first (wearing a purple dress, which I knew was NOT the winner.) I was thrilled when he let her down. As thrilled as I was when he shot down Deanna (Was she FOR REAL? Can you imagine if Brad had come back and said those things to her? She would have flipped out-and not in a good way.) I was so happy when he got down on his knee to propose to Melissa...although her reaction was a little theatrical, I was so super happy.
And then it all went to pot.
I cannot BELIEVE he broke up with Melissa like that- on television? Why couldn't he have voiced these concerns over the past 6 weeks when they were talking...on trips...spending holidays together? I know some might think she didn't handle it with much class, but I actually think she handled it quite well considering the circumstances. My heart literally broke in two when she made the point about him taking her one and only engagement from her. Ugh, I felt so sorry for her. MELISSA!!! MELISSAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!
So, he crushed Melissa's heart...and then came Molly. Now, no one throw anything at me, but when it became apparent that Melissa had no chance, I kind of started hoping that at least Molly would have a happy ending. I know, I know. I can't stand her...but I found myself getting really excited when she was telling Chris that she was still in love with Jason. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for him to spill the beans. It was just the excitement that all her wildest dreams were about to come true, I guess. I loved how SHOCKED she looked. The whole thing felt kind of scripted (her admiting how she still had feelings and would love for him to change his mind) until I saw her reaction. She almost seemed like she would pass out. I am happy that things worked out for her.
But I seriously hate Jason. Stop crying, Jason. You brought it all on yourself. Talk about a flakey man. Watch out, Molly, he will be calling Jillian next week.
Can't wait for tomorrow's installment of the Final Rose...Part TWO!
