'The Bachelor': Everybody hates Vienna

testing captions
testing captions

We start with Jake wanting to go "head over heels" with Vienna, which only means one thing....Tears for Fears concert bungee jumping!  Vienna has, in her words, "butterflies what are we doing" about this.  Before we continue, please count the grammatical errors in the previous sentence.

Jake and Vienna jump, scream, say "Oh my god" several times and land upside down, 70 feet in the air.

After the jump, the two share adult beverages, and realize that they have a lot in common, such as screaming at the top of their lungs.  Jake gives Vienna a rose.

Vienna arrives at the house, rose at hand, and we get tonight's major plot development - everybody hates Vienna!  Ashleigh would rather watch paint dry than listen to Vienna talk about her date with Jake.  Others are shocked that she got the rose at all.

It's group date time, and Jake wants to introduce eight women to someone very special.  Instead, we get Jon Lovitz.  Last week, it was Chicago.  Why are Jake's surprises set in 1988?  I'm expecting tank driving lessons with Michael Dukakis in a future episode.

Lovitz now owns a comedy club, and the eight will have to go on stage to tell  jokes before Jon, Jake and a studio audience, who I hope did not have to pay a two-drink minimum to watch.

Corrie impersonates her housemates, specifically Vienna, confusing Jake.  Ashleigh, after some hesitation, tells a few blonde jokes, winning over the crowd.  Michelle, who's spent all series threatening to leave unless she gets one-on-one time with Jake, "jokes" about having one-on-one time with Jake.

After the party, Michelle asks Jake if she could kiss him to see if she can "feel" something.  They kiss, Michelle declares it lousy, and decides she can't stay... again.  Jake orders her gone instead.

As she left, Michelle said she wanted to find man.  Instead, she got a big green taxi, potential therapy bills and a possible job as the Russian figure skating judge at the Olympics.

More Vienna hate, as Vienna accuses the girls of being "fake", with the others accusing her of playing head games and having an ego the size of Austria.  Ashleigh tells Jake that he has nothing in common with Vienna, who argues that she isn't liked because she's "real".

Jake takes Ella to Sea World on their one-on-one date, and he has a real surprise for her, which my wife caught a mile away.  It's Ella's young son!  Jake bonds well with the tyke and, at the end of the day, Ella gets a rose.

At the cocktail party (why are there no light appetizers served at these parties?  Do these women ever eat?), Jake gets together with Elizabeth who, as you may remember, doesn't want him to try to kiss her.  Jake accuses her of giving him "mixed signals" - she doesn't want a kiss, yet she flirts like crazy.  Elizabeth admits to having a jealous side - a show requirement - but is upset at Jake's accusations.

Elizabeth says she's not vanilla, but rather she's all the colors of the rainbow.  Always thought the "V" in "Roy G. Biv" stood for "violet," but what do I know?

It's rose ceremony time, and Jake must eliminate two women.  Elizabeth goes home, as does Valishia, a woman who, uh, let me see...honestly, I didn't write a thing about her since I started this.  Talk about being under the radar, or being the most boring contestant in show history.

What do you think about this "Bachelor" episode?

    Ali is NOT a nice girl, at least not on this shiow. She comes across as a plain jane who is a bully. Vienna looks like she has a couple of black eyes and they are editing her to look innocent for the most part which makes the other girls look worse than they probably are (maybe). Jake is not as attractive as I thought he was on Jillian's season and Ella looks about 40. I think that she will go home sooner rather than later. The only one with any class and who seems genuine is Tenley...so far. Most of these women are a joke and are probably using this show as an audtition for the new show "Bachelor Pad". It's not supposed to be "real" folks, just entertainment. So far there are more psychos and whiners than usual. Jake does not have a very good selection but than he's no prize.

    I was trying to set my DVR online, and I realized that the Bachelor was on at the same time as 24. Now, I got sucked into the whole Bachelor chick who got kicked off for having a fling on the side with the producer saga, which was very entertaining. However, although Jake the Pilot is hot, there is something really enticing about a bad-a– intelligence agent who manages to unfoil terrorist plots...

    I think the whole show stinks! My family won't watch it any longer- use to like Jake now I know why he hasn't found anyone- The girls this year are out for each other, not to find love- and please doesn't anyone wonder if your that nice looking why you haven't found love?

    Ali has been Jake's favorite since their first date. You could tell he was smitten with her. I'm for Ali 100%. She's cute, sincere, and has some humility. Ella is beautiful and sophisticated. Tenley is OK.
    He was right to send the others packing. Vienna needs to go, too.

    Don't get me wrong – Jake seems sweet. And I'm really impressed with how he's dealt with the messed-up emotional business of being the bachelor. But why does no one mention how awful it would be to be the wife of a commercial pilot?! These women are competing for the attention of someone who is always, always gone. Especially on holidays.

    happily ever after, baby. marry jake and you'll always be fighting for "one-on-one" time. not only will the TV cameras be gone, your husband will too.

    I actually know Ali and she is a nice person – not a mean girl at all. She's a girl's girl, actually. However, she does NOT like women-hating women. (i.e. women are are super nice to guys but horrible to women.) We've all known someone like this.....and it can be absolutely infuriating when a nice, affable guy thinks the world of one of these women, but doesn't know her for who she really is. I have a feeling this is the situation with Vienna. The producers of this show have just edited the scenes in such a way that we don't get to see what Vienna is up to while she's in the house with the women. Has anyone else noticed that? I supposed they are trying to get people to dislike Ali, who was "America's sweetheart" last week. Makes for better TV perhaps, but it also presents the country with a pretty skewed idea of who these women really are.....

    I noticed that even in writing comments most of the women here are like the one's on the show, CATTY & A SERIOUS WASTE OF TIME. Come on ladies, Vienna could pick up more guys than any of you and you know it and that's why you all rip her apart. I think she's a knock out and is probably too good for Jake. You women on and off the show should all try this, go out to the bar and sit in the corner and watch the door, as soon as a beautiful women walks in, every woman in the bar notices her and starts to snarl. The women on this show are no differant.

    C'mon people! Don't you know it's all the producers' doing? They had Jake keep pshcho girl (Michelle) for ratings and then had her dumped for ratings. And I'm sure they have other things up their sleeves. Don't you recall Ed (Jillian's guy) told Jake to not give her rose from the very 1st show?! And he kept her 2 wks in. And the Tenly pregnancy was ABC's way of reeling us in. Right after Tenly announced that she said it was all a joke! So ABC chose to not show that part on last night's show. And of course most of the girls are catching on and not there for the 'real' reason cuz they can get free trips and free room and board. Hello? What a deal in this sagging economy! You would think they'd run out of girls by now but I guess not. There are still wackos out there. OK, I think I've said more than enough.

    Anna, that's the creepiest thing I noticed about Vienna (among other things)! She's gross... this show is ridiculous, but a fun and brainless way to spend a Monday evening. It certainly makes me feel better about myself! I loved Ali right away, but now am a little more apprehensive. I like Ella, but I just don't see any real connection besides maybe Tenley, who needs to get over her little-girlness. My two cents. Have fun watching.

    Michelle should have been gone in the first round, she's got some serious issues. I could see when Jake kept Michelle she truly felt she was his only pick in her mind. Therapy could help this girl before she seeks love/marriage from anyone.

    Poor Michelle. She was not after The Bachelor; she just wanted someone, anyone with a pulse and a good sperm count. She was a maracca short of a Mariachi band, and I am glad she is gone. Same goes for Elizabeth, and her bag of mixed signals; I believe this time around, The Bachelor managed something new: to find the cookiest contestants ever..... it is obvious that Jake is having no fun, has chemistry with none of them, and will most probably end up going back to his airplanes alone. And the cookie monsters will go back to their own places of residence, to continue in their search for 'the one'. Pathetic. Truly pathetic. I am sorry for Jake, because he seems like a nice guy. But the bunch the asked him to choose from? The worst EVER.

    Snooze fest. Jake is not really crazy about any of these women lets start over. If I had to choose for him it would be Ella hands down or should I say claws down. She seems to be the only one there with some class at this point unless she proves me wrong in the next show. I am sure some of these women are nice girls but for god sake you know what this is about before you sign up, don't act supprised that he is frenching every other woman in the house besides you! And as for all of the other backstabbers let them weed themselves out I don't really give Jake alot of credit to decide, but he better keep Ella if he has one brain cell in his head left. Not fun this year, sorry no offense to anyone just not real into it too much drama, too little fun. I'll wait till the next show airs.

    Oh my God! I have been sitting on the edge of my seat for the passed few weeks hoping Michelle would not get a rose. I just hope Jake is going to be safe, Michelle has all the makings of a stalker. I also hope the young lady Jake chooses will be safe. The couple of women on the show that said Michelle needs psychiatric help is right on the money.
    To those of you mocking the show, you are the minority because most viewers find the show very entertaining and relaxing after a long hard day at work. It is nice to be able to just sit, relax and mellow out with the show.
    I do agree with a previous viewer, it would be nice if this show did a show for older people. Are they under the impression that older people are not interested in finding someone to love and enjoy being with. I am sure if older people were chosen for a show, younger people would learn quite a bit from experienced people, plus I think it would be fun.

    Dear Ray:

    Somebody did get married after this show. Remember Trista and Ryan. They are still together and have two children.

    I agree that the process is crazy and no wonder that after about 14+ showas (between the Bachelor and Bachelorette) they are the only ones that are married. One other couple, besides Jillian and Ed, has been engaged for the last six (6) years.

    Go Ella all the way. So far, she seems to be the only real WOMAN (not girl) there. All the others, I agree, are b_____, catty (I love my Cats, wish they would invent another word), and there to get their face on TV, just like WES!

    This is the first time I have actually watched this show. Jake seems to be a very genuine young man. Has his feet on the ground, and needs to have women who can actually understand what it takes to share a relationship with someone like this. I feel like the women chosen for Jake are small minded, selfish, mean spirited girls who need to do some growing up. How sad for Jake to have these girls as his choices.

    this show is entertainment folks. It's decieving to call it a 'reality show". We all know there is no such thing by now. Geesh! Take it for what it is and TURN THE CHANNEL if you don't like it.! Jake's wishy-washy and he needs a momma-type. That is why Ella would be better for him, marriage-wise. But – he's still a boy who likes blond hair and big breasts. The conflict is obvious and the show is funny. good entertainment. 🙂

    I to watch the show sometimes.. but those of you slamming the show as degrading to woman..Um excuse me..Have you watched the Bachelorette? Guys doing the exact same thing as these ladies...( I use that term loosely) because I agree that there are some very inmature back stabbing jealous people on this show, who need to do alot of soul searching before they mouth off on another. However, it is for entertainment. Do you really expect this to be a Happy Ever after type show? Come on people!!! Be serious.... One can hope for Love and all that– But in TV land– Good Luck with that...

    My wife and I watch it together for the entertainment factor. We've followed 3 seasons so far and believe this season's contestants as a group are by far the most immature and incompatible with the Bachelor/Bachelorette. No wonder they're still single. The first episode seemed promising but it's quickly sank into a cat fight full of its own laughable drama. Ella is sweet but may not be a good match for Jake. Vienna out of no where suddenly became the thorn in all the girls side for no apparent reason (maybe I missed some scenes 'cause I don't know what could warrant all the girls gaining up on her). Ali was very sweet in the first episode but last night's episode makes her seem vindictive and evil. Michelle really needs to seek mental help.

    i cant wait for my daughter to be a contestant on this show. she is only 4 now but by the time she is old enough, i hope to have taught her that being superficial, having a fairytale illusion and competing with 30 girls for the attention of a man is just the way things are. if she gets it, she will love the simple every day dating pleasures of helicopter rides, private concerts, bungee jumping and staring in a comedy show. i can only hope that she wont be sent home in tears on the first night. those 5 minutes of private time at a cocktail party can be enough to fall head over heels in love. if she wins, i know that the 6 weeks she had to evaluate the man she will spend the rest of her life with will be enough to carry her through working, paying bills, disagreements, raising a family and moving across the country to follow the man of her dreams. i just know their love will be strong enough to survive because it is based on real, mutual respect and common interests. if it doesnt work out, at least she will make enough $$ to get some plastic surgery and, hopefully, learn that she needs to keep her opinions to herself next time and just agree with whatever the man says. seriously though... very funny show. just not sure if i am laughing with or at. okay, its at.

    Most of these girls are too young and immature for Jake. They need to pick some girls closer to the Bachelor's age next time, the Bach would probably appreciate a more mature, well-adjusted group to choose from (and there would be fewer cringe-worthy moments for the viewers!).

    I don't understand why they're all ganging up on Vienna. I didn't like her in the beginning because she wasn't all that pretty but this show is not a beauty contest. It's centered on Jake finding the ideal match and it looked like they had a good time together in spite of the bungee jumping ordeal (whose idea was that?!). I thought the date w/Ella & son also went well.

    Really disappointed in Ali & some of the other girls I initially liked.

    I like Ella, but she and Jake don't have much chemistry. And I cheered when that weirdo Michelle was told to leave. That woman needs some professional help, fast! I just don't have a real front runner that I would like to see win yet. This is probably the most boring group of women I've ever seen on this show. I read somewhere on another site that this guy, who supposedly has the info from the horse's mouth said that Vienna will be the last one standing, so it will be interesting to see if that really happens.

    I thought Ali was possibly the right girl for Jake, but her mean comments to and about Vienna show that she's just another cat.
    Michele was/is psycho. You could tell by looking at Jake after the kiss that he wasn't into her at all. I'm so glad he told her that she should go ahead and leave.
    Ella is classy. Right now I would put Ella and Vienna in a tie for 1st place.

I think a lot of you forget that this is a competition and they are competing for a rather silly "prize" but that is how they have to view each other. This is a GAME/Reality Show.

    Ali started off being my favorite. I was really pulling for her, but have now changed my mind. She is so petty and mean to Vienna. She doesn't have to like her but she could still be nice and keep it to herself. To get on Vienna for interrupting Jake and Elizabeth, give me a break, all the girls interrupt Jake and someone when they want one on one time, and then to start up again after Vienna tried to apologize. Ella and Vienna are at the top of my list now. I also liked Corie until she started with all the rude jokes about Vienna. You don't make jokes in public at someone else's expence. She has also slipped on my list. I am so glad to see Michelle gone. Hope Jake makes the right choice.

    A couple of things... let us not forget this show is for entertainment only. Anyone who thinks otherwise has not watched the previous episodes. One couple got married....I too liked Ali until she all of a sudden got vicious. She needs to let go of Vienna, she will bury herself. It sheds an unflattering light on Ali, who was my favorite from the start. However, Jake does need to remember that he, in fact, was the one in the previous episode that warned Jillian about Wes. So it should not be a surprise to him the girls are doing the same. My other favorite girl is Gia, who I think is the girl you are talking about that got one of the last roses. She is beautiful, and she doesn't act crazy. Good for jake giving those two girls the boot. I think guys like a challenge but do not like to be teased. The other one was just downright crazy......

    This and Biggest Loser are great to tape and then fast forward through the 75% time filler. Each has long expanses of drudge:
    (1) One can fast forward through the BL exercising segments and kitchen shots (eat less processed food) and lose nothing (no pun intended), and
    (2) The Rose ceremony is usually 30 minutes of slo-mo which can be compressed to 2.

    In real-time both are painful and time you'll never get back.

    If it weren't for the show's dynamic and adventurous dates, Jake would be quite a boring person–hence the reason he's probably still single. He doesn't seem to have much of a personality, so guess whoever he ends up with will be his match, except she'll likely be drama-driven as they all are. Jake's simply a boring guy.

    Overall, I think this show is more trouble than it's worth. I really don't think it's a very good way to foster a lasting relationship. I'm sure some of it is only done for ratings, but in my opinion, any woman who's willing to trash talk another in the manner some of these woman are doing aren't worth Jake's time. He needs to figure out who is best match is by himself rather than listening to all the hearsay. At least last night he finally launched two of the ones he shouldn't have kept after the first night. Both of them definitely appeared to have psychotic streaks in them especially Michelle. She decides to go home and then turns it back on Jake to make it appear that she's the victim.

If I were a mature guy, I wouldn't have time for that kind of nonsense. Just shows what kind of women these ladies are with their ultimatums and gameship to try and bait and hook Jake.

Their obsessive "he's mine" attitude has shown to be destructive as well as great drama for prime time TV. None of these women can honestly believe they know who is right and who isn't for Jake after only a few weeks.

    I find it ironic that Ali confronted Vienna about taking up even more of Jake's time at the cocktail party.

The main ring leader on the show is Barbie other words known as "Ali". The other girls are not bright thinking she has their back. Wasn't she the one last night that said she felt betrayed he was going on other alone dates. I think this season on the Bachelor has a great deal of nut cases other words FREAKS. I do not even have respect for Jake, because at the Comedy Club he was putting up with all the jokes from the girls about Vienna.

It should be a game board with cardboard people. I can hardly stand to watch anymore and don't usually. Women make fools of themselves coming off so desperate. How different is it from the dark ages when women are paraded around and sold. Only the women parade themselves around and in the end they usually get dumped, before and after the proposal. Usually all but two women ruin their image and reputation. Most are demonstating the worst qualities in women.

    My guy and I watch this show because it is entertaining. We both enjoy a mindless couple of hours of distraction at the end of the first day of the work week. We pick our favorites. Cringe at the uncomfortable moments. Laugh at the funny ones. After watching several seasons of the Bachelore and Bachelorette we would appreciate some small modifications or additions to the concept.
    1. more of a racial or ethnic mix for contestants
    2. a way for the "star" to view some of the interaction in the house without the girls (or guys) knowing what might be seen
    3. an older cast, in mid-life or later
    4. perhaps same-sex pairings, even though "marriage" is not a legal option, yet

    Vienna is annoying to look at- there is something about her mouth that is very unattractive. Just because she's blonde doesn't mean she's more sexy, and her cattiness and accusations are getting to be a little too much.Michelle was one of the most gorgeous women there, but she is desperate and borderline psychotic and I knew she wasn't going to be around long. Something about Elizabeth seemed very fake and she may be better with kids than adults-I don't know but "nannies" to me are generally wierd.

    I do like Ella-I think she is a doll and very sincere.

    My favorite part of watching this trash is all the women accusing each other of "being there for the wrong reasons." Do they not realize that if they're really there to find love, they are there for the wrong reasons? I watch it, but this show is the biggest piece of crap I've ever seen and I'm embarrassed for all humanity that it remains on TV.

    I liked Ali at first, but she has turned into a bully. I can't believe how she manipulates the rest of the women to do and act like she wants them to, especially when it involves Vienna. God only knows what these women are really like, but watching the editing of Ali actions on the show are not flattering. But again, it is edited.

    I hope Jake is not taken in by the extra baggage of an 8-year old. Ella is no prize. Ali has the right stuff for a guy like Jake, blond and sensitive as well as sensible.

    I'm glad Jake was smart enough to see Elizabeth for the manipulative game-player she is. I hope he finally gains some insight and sends Vienna packing. She is not the least bit attractive, inside or out.

    Ali was my favorite until her mean/jealous side showed up. The rest of you Vienna haters along with Ali have no class. Do you really think going on National TV and being so petty and desperate is attractive...I just hope Jake sees though you all. I barely noticed Vienna until the attacks started, now she looks like a saint next to all those who are attacking her. And to the couple of you who are not attaking Vienna it shows you have class and integrity. Right or wrong it shows your petty side when you attack someone to the extent you all have attacked Vienna on this show. Its a game show with Jake as the prize...you are NOT better than Vienna, and Jake likes the part you all do not seem to!!! So get over yourselves.

    I noticed the same thing in the previews with Jake and Tenley. It was definitely her telling him she was pregnant – but didn't see anything on the shows that showed the same preview. I'm confused!

    I take anything that happens on this show as a grain of salt. The bachelor is pure ENTERTAINMENT. I do enjoy watching every last one of those women make a fool of themselves... This show is a cultural disaster... never seen any Indian, Asian, or African America people on this show beit bachelor, bachelorette, or contestant....only desperate, spotlight hungry, pitiful causians....what's up with that?

    These are the type of shows that take away from any normality of a natural relationship and feeds inexperienced individuals into a superficial view of how relationships should be...

    I agree with GPND – they are all so catty it's maddening. I also agree they should leave Vienna alone. Did they actually think they wouldn't have to listening to each other gush about their one-on-one dates. Grow thicker skin! Also I think that Corrie's "comedy" routine was sickening. My mother always said "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all." Learn it, live it, ladies (?)

    Why do people (women) watch this crap? Just to watch other women being nasty to each other and play games? Romance is DEAD with a freak show, circus act like this. If anyone is watching to see if two people can find love this way... please get psychological help.

    The girls, they don't act like women, that dislike Vieanna the most are jealous and feel challenged by her. They pick at her to start arguements and talk about her to Jake to throw a bad light on her and a good one on themselves, they hope.

    I am so tired on the Vienna conspiracy; she is actually very real and needs to be left alone...especially from Ali, who I loved at first and now can't stand her. I thought it was funny that most of the girls were reprimending Vienna for interrupting Jake and Elizabeth, come on, that is the way they try to get time with him, they are all included in that mix! I like Tenly at this point and I feel sorry for Vienna

    Sad to say, but I have been watching... The whole situation is artificial. There is no way either Jake and the woman he chooses will know they are right for each until after the show and they are not "dating" on camera. We've seen all too often how the women or men chosen at the end does not up marrying the bachelor or bachelorette.

    I can't date a (feminine) guy who is about to bungy jump and is crying in the shoulder of some blonde woman...buddy, seriously, get a grip, at least pretend to be cool...no wonder this guy can't seem to, in his words, "get a second date". also anyone notice that when he kisses one of the women, one of his eyes looks at the camera, then he stops, haha funny, check it out next time.

    We watch this as it is SO funny. I mean really this whole concept is insane but makes for great television. And, Michelle should have been gone IMMEDIATELY! and Vienna – ick! I agree with others posting here that Jake should think back to Wes and meeting with Jillian to inform her. Watching the puzzled look on Jake's face turn into that goofy grin at the snap of a finger is great! Ella seems like the real deal but whether or not they are a match? I thought it VERY risky to bring her 7 yr old son in so soon. Can't wait till next Monday night!

    I think this show is simply legalized prostitution. To think that any sane woman would go for a guy that is kissing etc etc all these other "ladies" while trying to decide if his "future wife" is in the room is absolutely revolting. Then for the final three! They each get to "audition" for the part and then...if they do really good...then they might get a ring and A proposal!!!

    This show will go down in history as the worst embarrassment ever made on television.....Anyone involved in this asinine production should be ashamed.

    I just don't get how you can really fall in love in such a short amount of time and be sure that you want to get married? I also think that all but two or three are there to get their 15 mins of fame. They are all like to beg for attention and affection. I

    Who is Valishia and where did she come from. yeah she did fly under the radar but guess she got caught. I never even noticed her till this time. He gave her a rose last week? When I don't even remember her. I like Tenly, Alli, and Ella the best!

    I am embarassed to say I am of the same species as this group. They should all mind their own business and stay focused on why they are there and remain true to themselves. They spend more time telling each other why each of them should not be there. Caddy, caddy and very immature. They're all way too young for him. Even if one talks about another, they should not all get into the mix. It's really negative and so dysfunctional.

    With all the drama surrounding Vienna, wouldn't one think that Jake should be sensitive to the feelings of the people in the house since he was once one of them and had to tell Jillian that one of the guys was not what he seemed, and it was the truth. Maybe he should take cues from his past and not ignore what other people know and feel

    I think the women on this show except for maybe 2 are not there for Jake. I think they should leave Vienna alone and that in the end Ella may be the one. The other girls are there to just play games.
