and after watching the whole season i feel like i was tricked into watching a show about helicopter rides.
seriously though, i just felt bad for jill. watching this show for the last few months has basically been like watching jill get punched in the face over and over again. no one deserves the drama that they put that poor girl through. but, i really do think the final blow was bringing reid back. she handled the whole situation with class but you could tell she was completely heartbroken and confused.
kiptyn. so kind. and adorable. i never caught on to him but i think his exit raised him a lot of notches in my book. (do books have notches?) his whole devoted speech to jillian before he got the boot was paaaainful. and i know everyone is going to be begging for him to be the next bachelor but can we PLEASE get some fresh meat on this show?
reid. oy. i didn't like that he came back. i know he was trying to do the right thing and wasn't out to hurt her but COME ON. give the girl a freaking break. and also, i thought that the speech he gave her the second time around was JUST AS BAD as when he was actually on the show. i still like him though.
and lastly, ed. he's been my favorite all along. until he turned into a giant goober 2 or 3 episodes back. but, i think she made a good choice. and i think they could actually work out. he seems genuinely in love with her.
also, i would like to point out that i hated that she wore a white wedding gown. wtf? this is a proposal jillian...not a wedding. so bizarre.
so... here we are 1000 performances of 'love it don't take that long' by wes, 320 helicopter rides and 764 interviews about ed's failure in the fantasy suite later. i feel dumber than when we started. i'm going to go read a book.
but for those of you who haven't had enough pain and agony for one summer, i leave you with this:
