The Bachelor Finale

Let’s discuss. It looks like everything played out exactly how Reality Steve said it would. You could see how emotional and sad Jason was when he let Molly go, however he seemed to pull it together and was so happy when he saw Melissa and proposed. It played out like a fairytale. I thought that was going to be it. Then, immediately following the finale, “The Final Rose” comes on and everything falls apart.

I feel terrible for Melissa. She was truly a sweet and genuine girl and did not deserve to be humiliated like that on national television. I thought Jason was a good man, but I guess I was wrong. The whole situation makes me sick. I’ll never know if the producers put him up to it or what truly happened behind the scenes, but based on what I have seen he did the unthinkable. I also don’t believe for a second that he hasn’t seen or spoken to Molly since the finale.

I know it’s just another reality show and who knows what is real and what is fake, but I have to believe that Melissa did get her heart broken. I honestly liked both ladies, but I felt in the end that Melissa was the better choice for Jason.

I remember a few seasons ago when I thought what Brad did was heartless. This tops that by far. Jason is more fickle than a 5 year old. My favorite line from “After The Rose” and my sentiments exactly (spoken to Jason from Melissa), “You’re such a bastard”.

What do you think? I’m sure everyone feels a little different on the topic.

I soo agree! I actually had tears when he was letting Melissa go. I could not have handled it as good as she did if I was in her spot. What he did was very cruel!! She seemed to be the better choice and I hate it that he did that to her and then all the PDA that had going on, with the hand on the leg thing and all that kissing, thats going to be so hard for her to watch. Grr it made me mad having to watch it. Not to mention disgusted!!

AGREED. 100%

I just blogged about it myself.

he disgusts me. even if he was completely honest, he's a bastard for doing on television. he could have refused and done it off camera. what a douche.

and I don't for a minute believe he hasn't been in contact with molly. in fact, I think she was in on the whole thing. her reaction when she was rejected was too tame. and what kind of woman takes me back when he just publically broke another girl's heart?

Ugh, I so agree with you here! I blogged about this as well...I cannot believe Jason stooped so low...and Molly just took it from him! Have some class, girl!

Melissa Miller said...

Thanks Jules.
You summed it up perfectly word for word...I agree.

I was cringing watching it...UGH!
I think it may have been a bit staged for tv though.

I'm furious! He's and idiot! I can't believe it! I feel the same way for him that I did for DeAnna after the final rose last season. I don't think you are the only one who feels this way at all!

Jill said...

Poor Melissa. I feel so bad for her.

I felt bad for the girls when Brad didn't pick either one. However, I always thought it was better for him to be honest about his feelings. I would much rather a guy tell me the truth the first time vs. pretending.

I'm just wondering how long Jason and Molly will last??? Probably not long.

The Browns said...

I agree with everything you said. HE IS A JERK! I really hope they make Melissa the next Bachelorette. She is gorgeous & I love her personality. He IS such a bastard! UGH!

It was hard to watch!!! I mean she was so hurt. And I thought she rocks for standing up to him and being like I can't believe this!!! He really sucks.

Tasha said...

I was so sad for Melissa too. I can't believe he did that to her on national television! The "you're such a bastard" comment was perfect. He is. I doubt he and Mollie will last long either. It seems like he doesn't know what he wants. I bet Jason's ex-wife was watching somewhere yelling, "see the truth America?! That's why I divorced his sorry ass!" I'm so DONE with this show after this season. I hate that I spent every Monday night for the past few months watching this charade.

Melissa said...

I think Jason should not propose till he knows for sure he wants to be with the woman forever AND he has a relationship with them out of fantasy land from ABC!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm so excited to meet another Gossip Girl fan!

I don't watch The Bachelor, but I've heard all the drama. I can't believe what he did!
