Just a few thoughts on tonight’s final episode.
Jillian, you made a mistake.
Ed? Really, Ed? Ok, he is cute. But he’s also awkwardly tall. Why did I never notice what a giant Mr. Ed was until the final rose ceremony? And Reid came back. Reid. The one who loved you but was just a little too timid to say it. The one who stuck through, who made you laugh. The cute one.
What was with all the dramatic music? I had never noticed it in episodes passed. And, the song they played as the montage of Ed and Jillian’s journey played…did anyone else notice it was Martina? As in McBride? As in the one who performed (the same song, in fact) on Jillian and Jake’s first date? Funny how the montage left out the scene where Ed leaves. Remember that? He left because his job was more important. Oh, yeah. But then he came back, as so many of them did this season, because he had made a mistake. A big one. But apparently not one that was unforgiveable.
Props to Reid for returning, though. And professing his love. His “I love you this much” was too cute. As is he. Sorry you left heartbroken, Buddy. And thank you for subtly correcting Jill by saying “indescribable” when defining the situation and not, as she did, “undescribable.” We all called it when he had “prior commitments” that kept him from the Men Tell All special last week. My scenario of what I wanted to go down was much better (and had a happier ending) than what actually happened.
Why didn’t Ed or Kiptyn wear undershirts under their dress shirts? That seemed a bit weird. And, nice gratuitous shot of Ed in his boxer briefs. Guess his torso isn’t as defined as that of his competition.
Neil Lane seemed a bit…well, giddy. I’d like to know who pays for the rings. ABC? Did Reid pay for his own ring, or did they fly Neil to Philly? I’d like to think he paid for his own. And picked it out without any help. More reason to ❤ him.
Was shocked they didn’t show the minivan cab and Ed’s white limo passing each other on the windy road…after Reid got dumped. That? Would’ve been great television.
I do not think Jake should be the next bachelor. I liked him at first but he really is just too “perfect.” I like the idea of Michael the break dance instructor and his twin being dual bachelors and vying for the same girls.
There seemed to be way more smooching than usual this week. And groping. And implications thereof. And actual discussion of said activity. I mean, leave something to our imaginations, please? Thanks.
Chris Harrison pulled a fast one on Jillian with the whole Reid thing–and since when did he become a licensed therapist? How do you feel right now? Who do you love? You know who you want. You know what will make you happy.
Ed could’ve done a better job picking the ring. But, Kiptyn did already pick the best ring of them all.
What’s with this “Ed is my best friend” BS? How can he be your best friend already? You barely spent any time with him. And then subtract from that the three weeks he was at home. At work. Because that was more important than you.
