Or “Love is a battlefield.” Those are the two titles that come to mind after watching last night’s installment of The Bachelor. Jake and the final three women headed off to Saint Lucia. I kept saying I’ll have to Google where that is. So I did this morning, and here it is. I have to tell ya, looking out my window this morning the wanderlust is kicking in for sure! We have not finished digging out of the 3 feet of snow we got blasted with last week — and today the snow is coming down again. How lovely it would be to dream off to a place like Saint Lucia!

Back to reality. And back to “reality” TV.

Jake, Gia, Tenly and Vienna all seemed to enjoy the gorgeous Saint Lucia. Each of the one-on-one dates were very different as far as daytime activities. The three women are very different. And Jake got to show a very different side of himself on all three dates. But as usual the evening activities included the exact same verbiage as always on the “fantasy suite card.” (Come on Chris, shake it up a little… use your words, find multiple ways to invite people to the whoopie suite!) 😉

I am such a “girl” and a romantic because when I see all those rose petals scattered around the suite and all those candles lit I exhale an “aw!” And my lady by contrast is rolling her eyes. What can I say! I love all that romantic crap!

Anyway, I have to tell you that abc is pretty clever with their commercial cliffhanger grabber teasers. At one point they tease that Ali is going to call Jake and say she “made the wrong decision” choosing her job over Jake (Doy!). The teaser shows us Jake on the phone saying “get on the next plane to here as fast as you can.” Of course when it plays out in the episode we see Jake saying “it’s not like I can say get on the next plane… I have fallen in love with three other women.”

Now, two weeks ago they show a clip of Jake looking happy at the final rose ceremony with a voice-over “I have found my wife” or something like that. But last night? They craft an upcoming preview of Jake at the final ceremony looking sad, crying over a banister (like Jason did), making both women cry with a voice-over of something like “I just don’t know if it is fair to pick one when I am in love with two.” {sigh}. Not because he is in love with two women at the same time, because I have learned not to heckle or judge those poor saps for being in love with more than one person at a time. But because after all of this, it seems like a calculated let-down to bring people to the end of an “amazing journey” (well worn Bachelor/Bachelorette catch phrase) only to say “well, guess I won’t pick anyone.” I guess we shall see how that final episode plays out in the end.

As for last night, Jake chose to let Gia go home. I was surprised! I had thought the final two would be Gia and Tenley. But nope… he sent the sweet insecure swimsuit model packing.

So the two women who remain are indeed Tenley and Vienna. And anyone who is watching this season of The Bachelor will know why I titled this post “Lady and the Tramp.”

Who will Jake pick? Will he pick anyone? Will he throw his sobbing self over the banister this time? I guess those who tune in will find out on March 1st.
