wes_DBOr… the alternate title could be: “Something stinks in Spain” (where Jillian took several fellas in pursuit of a rose from her). Either way, I am thrilled to report Bachelorette fans that Jillian FINALLY sent Wes packin’ last night!

If you don’t follow The Bachelorette, this pic. at left will pretty much describe for everyone who Wes was. He was a snake who was captured many times on the show telling the guys he was not there for Jillian, but for “publicity” for his no-talent-run-of-the-mill voice. Thankfully, the producers only ever let him get one line of a song out of his mouth before they covered over the top of it with Jillian speaking. Then in most recent episodes the rumors that Wes “had a girlfriend” became too prevalent to ignore. Last week Jake (who hadn’t received a rose the week before) returned to tell Jillian and confront Wes. If you click here you can read a recap of the Spain dates.

Here’s a choice quote on the Wes “exorcism”:

“There’s not even a need for a pre-rose ceremony chat — Jillian knows who’s getting the (cowboy) boot. And thank God, because at this point Wes has gone completely off the rails: ”If it’s me [who’s sent home],” he tells the assembled bachelors, ”know that I will be back home having lots of sex.” Don’t forget to fill your Valtrex prescription first, hayseed! (Reid and Kip, to their credit, look totally disgusted.) When it comes time for the final rose, Wes looks positively giddy — his escape route back home to Austin and Laurel is in his sights. When Kipper gets the last rose, I’m so thrilled, I don’t even care that Team Bachelorette completely duped us into thinking that one bachelor had ”trouble” in the Fantasy Suite. What does a little deception matter when the country-fried douche bag is gone?”

So who is left after the big trip to Spain for Jillian to choose from as potential fiances? You can read here for some more info. on the remaining three men.

There is Kiptyn: (What is he looking for on the side of the road there with his shirt off, belt undone and trunk open? Hmm… what do you think Steven?) 😉




and Ed (who left the show a few weeks ago for his job, but returned because he missed Jillian).


Who do you think Jillian will pick? Are any of these three remaining guys REALLY that into Jillian? What do you make of Jillian not taking advantage of the “fantasy suite” cards (except for Ed…)? And finally, do you think she will actually find lasting love with one of these men?

I must admit. I really missed Chris Harrison at the rose ceremony appearing to say “Jillian, gentlemen… it’s the final rose tonight.” 🙂

Here’s a funny spoof video on Jillian’s keen man choosing skills. 😀
