Posts Tagged ‘Ali Fedotowsky’

What another sucky day in paradise for Ali on last night’s installment of The Bachelorette. Well, her first two Tahitian dates with Roberto and Chris had such a sweet quality about them. Each of those two men seem like genuine choices. 

Then came time for the ever angst and insecure Frank to have his time. His part of the show did not begin in Tahiti with Ali though. It began with him bemoaning the fact that while he was falling in love with Ali — he felt the resurrection of feelings for his most recent ex-girlfriend (that he had broken up with). Of course this meant that he had to seek out this ex-girlfriend (with the camera crew in tow of course) and share his revelation with her. What person would just open their door to their ex and allow them to prance on inside with a camera crew? Anyway, this was a slow painful exhibition of Frank telling his ex how amazing his exotic dates had been with the amazing Ali. I was thinking “that’s not exactly how to endear yourself to your ex-girlfriend.” Eventually Frank mentioned that he still had feelings for this girl on the sofa. Then, the ex-girlfriend said she had not stopped thinking of Frank since he left and that it was “time for him to come home.” (Probably Frank got tired of living with his parents after he came back from Paris). Then Frank told his soon-to-be-once-again girlfriend that he now had to go to Tahiti and tell Ali he was leaving her for his ex-girlfriend.

Of course we have Chris Harrison playing counselor to Frank (and eventually Ali). Then it is time for Frank to drop the bomb on Ali. Just sad. Why couldn’t this guy simply have called Ali from Chicago and told her that he was staying with his girlfriend? One word. Ratings. Well, two words: drama and ratings.

I would like to think that Ali will end up choosing one of the sweet and seemingly genuine men remaining at that final rose ceremony. But, the checkout aisle tabloids have already been “spoiling” that notion for weeks. What can we expect from “reality TV” made-to-order love stories?

Well, who’d a thunk it? Jake and Vienna broke up.

Yesterday was just another summer Tuesday… until news broke all over the interwebs reporting the “nasty” break up of the most recent Bachelor and his controversial pick for fiancée. Jake is saying only that “Sometimes love just isn’t enough in a relationship.”

Of course there are always plenty of rumors swirling about “who cheated on who,” or whether or not they ever actually kissed off camera (per Vienna’s step-mom). The reality of reality TV show love is that, in fact, many people consider the end of this “fairy tale romance” another one of those break-ups that is no surprise.

I wonder if Ali (who left Jake for her job) will have any better luck in this season’s offering of The Bachelorette.

It is about all I can do to type WTF were you thinking Jake?” But then again, I have said that countless times at the end of past seasons of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. Why do I keep watching? I don’t know, except it is one of my silly little guilty pleasures to heckle this show!

After last week’s show I had even posted that Jake may not choose anyone–after last week’s preview showed Jake “pulling a Mesnick” (as Chris Harrison put it). But, alas. He did choose a fiancé–and he chose Vienna.

And if you remember one of my previous recap posts from this season you know why I opened the post with “WTF Jake?”–because out of the last two women standing… he did indeed have “The Lady and the Tramp” to choose from.

We shall see if the Jake and Vienna pairing is a match that is truly on the wings of love, or if that’s just what they’re selling us! HA! There are already reports that Jake is cheating…

Speaking of selling… Jason and Molly are getting married… and guess what? The wedding will air next week 0n ABC. Chris Harrison also announced that Ali Fedotowsky was to be the next Bachelorette.

Hey, no one ever promised us a rose garden! 😉
