Sigh.

What can I say here? I am disappointed, but not surprised. I hate that the ending this season was totally ruined for me, that it was spoiled early and that I had to suffer through the inevitable. All I can really say is...boo. Boo on Jake for breaking Tenley's heart. Boo on Jake's family for not taking him by the shoulders and shaking some sense into him. Boo on the 'magical spark' that was missing between him and Tenley. Boo on having to see Vienna molest Jake with mud all over their bodies. Boo to the ridiculously cheesy 'On the Wings of Love' Jake/Vienna montage I gagged all the way through. Boo to watching them dance to the live performance (um, Mike's worst nightmare right there).

A few more key points: It breaks my heart how well Tenley fit into Jake's family, how much they loved her and she loved him, and how important it was to Jake's mom to have someone who would unify the women in their family.....and then he chose Vienna. I was laughing at how awkward Vienna's time with them was, and just how her immaturity flashed like a huge neon sign when you compared them side by side.
I have to ask myself what kind of woman Jake was truely looking for...didn't he call Vienna his pet or baby or something like that? I wonder if he was looking for someone to coddle or spoil....if so, he found his match!

Did anyone else think it was so random when Jake was announced for Dancing With the Stars? That was the only true surprise for me this whole night. I was seriously wondering how in the world they decided on that???

I know that some of you are not huge Alli fans, but I am looking forward to her season. I like watching her, she's cute and stylish and doesn't annoy me (although she can really whine), and hopefully she has awesome guys to choose from. I can't wait!!!

I really loved all the texts I received tonight during the finale. It was so much fun, I was laughing the entire show because it seemed I had an ongoing commentary from my friends even though they weren't with me. Loved it!!!

Soooo....what did you think?

I do have a question about Ali: Why is she able to leave her job to be the Bachelorette, but she couldn't leave her job to be with the love of her life??? But, after he picked Vienna (my sister calls her "sausage"), it made me realize that Ali was probably NOT what he was looking for. Vienna is just gross. It looks like she never wears mascara and that bugs me. It won't last....mark my words!!!

Candi said...

I am SO disappointed!!! What in the world?? I seriously don't know why he'd pick her other than the obvious 'chemistry' they had. If that's what he chose her for that's definitely going to change and end badly. I bet Jake's parents are devastated...his dad especially. I just think his and Tenley's parents would have totally bonded and they could have had the perfect life and family. But, um, I guess that's not what he was looking for?

I'm sad for Tenley but hopefully she can pick herself up and find a smart guy that respects her values and morals. And hopefully, one day, just maybe, she'll stop talking about her ex...in the van...down by the river.

Dancing With The Stars...hmmm, how completely random?!?! As soon as they came back on to announce the last person I thought it might be Tenley since she's a dancer but...no. No. They picked Jake. How stupid.

And I'm actually excited about Ali being the next Bachelorette...I didn't think that I would be but I am!! I, too, hope she can keep the whinning to a minimum. That's one of the things that bugs me about her. But she looked really cute and excited tonight so I'm hoping it'll be a good season with her!

Jess said...

Okay....The 'magical spark,' someone has to say it, It's killing me!!! IT WAS TOTALLY all about SEX!! Either Tenley & Jake were not intimate OR 'the heat' that Jake just couldn't live without wasn't there! Maybe I'm so far off, but I don't think I am??? Jake likes sex & in the end, that's what he got...

Sorry if I polluted your comment box....we were all thinking it & even poor Tenley couldn't say it out loud??

Alli should be fun & I agree about the whining!! I love your posts btw!!

Candi said...

LOL! I definitely agree with Jess! Vienna put it all out there for him I'm sure. Although I remember Tenley saying on their last date night that she was ready to show him that they had chemistry in every way possible?!?! I seriously hope she didn't do anything stupid...given the fact that we all know he's a total d-bag now!

I went to a viewing party last night, which was awesome. There was a mutual disdain for Vienna, but I think they deserve each other now. Barf. Barf on her bad hair extensions and awful dye job. It was obvious someone other than her did her hair and makeup for the final rose ceremony, because she actually looked OK. Barf on her awful mother of the bride aqua dress...enough with the aqua! Honestly, I think Jake did Tenley a favor. She deserves more. I felt so bad that she is obviously still so hurt. He is an idiot. I was all excited about the DWTS cast until they announces Jake....Jake? I've got to watch Vienna in the front row of that show now. Oh, I was hoping their 15 minutes was long over. The general concensus at the party was that Vienna must be a freak in bed. There is no other explanation. Allie will make a good Bachelorette, I think. But it would have been great to see Tenley get it, too. I hope I never hear that song again.

AnneMarie said...

Poor Tenly. She must be the only girl brokenhearted that THANKED the Bachlor in the history of the show. She is too sweet for words.

When his Baby Vienna shows her true side and bites his head off in their first fight I'd love to watch that on TV.

Can't wait for Ally to work it with all of the men. She will be so fun to watch. I would be curious what she would get paid for being the next Bachlorette? Must be good if she left that precious job of hers in SF.

MT said...

I think Jake liked Vienna from the first jump...bungy jump. I wasn't surprised in the least, especially after he hurt Tenley's feelings in boat. Yeouch. That had to sting.

And sorry again, but Tenley annoyed me so much this episode. She's kind of a huge dork. Gasp. Her disney blush was too much and her "sweetness" gets old. There's no dynamics in a woman who is just prim and proper ALL the time. Isn't drama just a little fun once in a while? I really could sense that Jake was holding back with her...kinda like he had to be on his best behavior all the time... She's just too much of a delicate and tender flower. I think Jake was afraid he might break her. Ha ha.

Although I am NOT a Vienna FAN, I thought Jake was nice when he talks about her, defends her, and dotes on her. All that matters is that they are head over heals for each other and I think it can last if they both want it to. We'll see. Welcome to Dallas, Vienna.

ps - who even cares about jason and molly's wedding?

I certainly wouldn't share MY man with dancing with the stars...I don't think...wait, how much do THEY get paid? I also wouldn't allow my husband to be Tenley's friend for life. HA HA.

Darby said...

I have no words.

(oh yes i do)

I was mad at first and now I'm so glad he got what he wanted and Tenley deserves WAY better.

Anyone watch Regis and Kelly this morning. Jake and Vienna were on and all they (Regis and Kelly) talked about was Jake and Tenley. Jake said he would lay down his life for Tenley? huh? Ok he was doting and held V's hand but ouch those words have to sting. (to her) Vienna hardly said 2 words. Except they are excited not to lead a normal life, how normal can being on DWTS be?

And over V's cold dead body will she let Jake be friends with T. Just don't see that happening.

DWTS, ugh. America hates this dude.... he won't go far. They get 200k for appearing and another 100k if they win. I know the dancers get a per episode fee as long as they are on, not sure about the "stars" if we can call them that. :)

Brooke said...

Lame, lame, lame. I was so disappointed. I was angry when he let Tenley go but then caught myself smiling while proposing to Vienna. And, what if we have all been deceived by her. What if.. what if.. she really is perfect for him? What if I personally had wrongly judged her as well? I left thinking that maybe she is in her right place but her nervousness makes her say silly things and act coo coo. I honestly hope that they work out. And yes, Jake said.. "Vienna is my baby." That was weird.
Alli, I am one of those who doesn't care for her much. I think I saw her ugly side when faced with Vienna and now she seems to be playing the sweet, innocent girl. It bugs me a bit but.. I'll probably get over it and watch it nevertheless. :) Love you Joy!

Melissa said...

I'm going to be booed at, but I like the ending. I think if he followed his heart, then good for him!

jen hulet said...

I think Tenley SHOULD thank him. Obviously if Vienna is his type, he definitely would NOT make her happy!

Jean Smith said...

just watched it last night and although the ending was spoiled because of facebook, i still couldn't believe it. wow. you summed up my feelings perfectly. i understand if there wasn't that "spark." i get it. i do. but, i fear for jake and vienna...she is ridiculously immature and loves the fame and spotlight way too much.

Joy said...

Melissa, I won't boo you. You are right, if they are happy then...well, what can I say? I just can't stand Vienna, and you know, I am glad to hear that I am not the only one who thinks she is unattractive. I love all the comments, can't wait for Alli!!!

I'm so sorry we didn't get together to watch the finale! My husband was in finals this week, and was gone all the time. Dang! Anyway, about the ending... I too was disappointed it was Vienna. Like you, it was spoiled for me early on (Reality Steve), so I knew the outcome, but kept wishing it would be Tenley! But I will say after watching Jake and Vienna on Ellen the other day, it seems like they have a good connection. She drives me nuts, but whatever. I hope Tenley finds a good one! She deserves it!!

Vienna makes me nervous! I was not to thrilled at who he picked! I agree, I hope he doesn't fly my plane! I would actually try to jump if I found out he was my pilot! Tenley would have been a better match...she doesn't act like a 12 year old! Sorry if this offends, but Viena really is odd! He should have done a background check! :)
