'The Bachelor': Define 'telling all'

It's the "Women Tell All" episode, and Chris Harrison has brought a studio audience with him to let you know that.  We start with a pre-recorded interview with Jake, where Chris notes that everything Jake went through "was real."  This critic and countless others tend to disagree.

Back to the studio, where Chris looks at what he calls a "sexy new phenomenon" - "Bachelor" cast reunions.  Or, as ABC unofficially calls it, potential casting for this summer's "Bachelor Pad" spin-off.

Now, a word from Chris Harrison, who would like to remind you that "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" alumni are obligated to give back to the community.  The community didn't ask, but here comes Jerry O'Connell's brother and others, helping fifth graders with a mural.  Now, are the 5th graders supposed to learn from the alumni or the other way around?

Meanwhile, Lorenzo Lamas' daughter tells us that "The Bachelor" is more than just romance - it's also about giving food to the needy.  My head hurts.

We're back in the studio, where Chris has assembled the "most memorable women" to talk about the show.  There appears to be 14 women on the panel, and I can only remember half of them.  Chris talks with Gia, who says being on the show was "the best experience of her life."  Obviously, she hasn't had much of a life.

The conversation turns to Michelle, who admits to wearing her heart on her sleeve the whole time, but she had no regrets.  Thanks to the wonders of choppy editing and laugh tracks, we learn that allegations of emotional instability are comedy gold.

Now it's time for what Chris called "the biggest TV scandal of 2010."  Alas, no one from "Our Little Genius" comes out.  Instead, it's Rozlyn Papa, who was kicked off the show many moons ago for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with a staff member.

Chris says numerous times that he harbors no ill will toward Rozlyn.  He also asks numerous times if she had an inappropriate relationship with a staff member.  He then talks about his son rambling on about unicorns and magicians.  If Chris Harrison is auditioning for the Oprah slot, he's failing miserably.

Rozlyn denies everything.  The women on the panel deny everything Rozlyn is denying.  Fingers are pointed about "24/7 cuddling," Rozlyn being on "all fours" and Chris flirting with the ex-staff member's wife.  Chris does the worst impression of an elementary school teacher since Kate Hudson in "You, Me and Dupree."

After all that fun, Jake comes out, saying it was an "honor" to have all the women participate on the show.  We're then treated to the blooper reel, where Jake demonstrates his lack of vocabulary, as well as his problem using beds.

Next week, the finale!  Tenley vs. Vienna in the bore to settle the score.

What do you think of last night's episode?

    I was Thinking about Gia being the next Bachelorette. But since she has a hard time opening up it might not be good television.But i would like her in that role. Ali would be good TV but can she leave her job that long?And i really don't care for her so much i might not watch if she is picked.Corrie would be perfect! who will get the Virgin?All the guyS competeing to deflower the Virgin that would be good TV. I liked Jessie i'd watch that too.

    Just thought you all might like to know . . . Rozlyn landed herself two nights on The Insider, sitting on the panel. Though it's on another network, that may have been the reason she returned to the show on Monday.

    Ok, I got roped into watching this show this year because all of my girlfriends watch it. I have to say....I HATE JAKE!!!!

    Not only is he totally boring (I know that there is a sterotype for big hot dumb guys but come on!!!), but he is a huge liar! He swears that he is "falling for" each woman on the show and then drops them one by one like bad habits when the rose ceremony comes. When Ali called him from SF and asked to come back, and he said he had to listen to what his heart was telling him and it was that he liked the other women better....at that point it was pretty obvious that he is just a phoney. Really??? After one week your feeling have just vanished?

    Don't get me wrong – he is super hot and I wouldn't mind being in that shower with him, but I would prefer if he was mute. Does anyone else get bothered with his wholesome good-boy act? When he said "oh bless her heart" when he was talking about Swamp Thing Vienna I thought I was going to have to yack.

    'Wonderboy Jake' is a flake....... Can't he think of any other word other than 'AMAZING'?...
    Vienna- Is she related to that once famous equine, Mr.ED? Also, please do something with your hair...
    Tenley– Oh God, that voice is enough to drive anybody to drink......
    Rozyln- Who cares what she did or didn't do, considering how loopy Jake is, she might have been the smartest one of all....
    Ali- nice smile, but comes off as phoney and pre-staged, The Next Bachelorette? Ya, good luck with that , considering all the hate email you seem to get......
    Chris-the cat fight with you and Roz, kinda made both of you look like asses. (I know, I know, the ratings the ratings!!!!! whatever)..... That's reality T.V. folks !!! Now ABC, do me a HUGE FAVOR, and please bring back EASTWICK!!!!! Since Leno vacated 10 pm, put it on after all these bachelor/dating type shows and WOW!!! RATINGS WILL SOAR!!! TRUST ME!!! EASTWICK....EASTWICK.....EASTWICK...........

    I think this year's Bachelor is not going to rank as one of the top seasons. I am sure Jake picked Vienna within the first two weeks and will end up with her BUT it won't last. He is too mellow for her, they won't last long I am sure. She will be sick of him within a year. She is so immature, not that it's bad to be, it's just that she really doesn't know what she wants yet, she thinks she does BUT she really doesn't. He is hoping it will last but I don't see that happening.

    I have had enough of Ali...I don't like her. Tenly can't stop talking about her ex-husband, Vienna is not Jake's type and I don't think he will pick either of them. Please don't select Ali for the Bachlorette. I think Gia would be a good fit for Jake, she just needs to open up a bit. Oh well, too late and we don't get to choose who he will end up with.

    Ok, guys....
    Do u guys know that Jake was previously an actor??? That says a lot. He may be good-looking, but he is as fake as the rest of them. Gia has had so much work done that she looks like "the Joker" from the Batman movies. She has dated countless celebs and sports figures. Why would we want her to be the next Bacherlorette? ALI?? FAKE, and mean- spirited. She was soooo jealous of sweet Vienna that she exhausted herself. Yuck!
    Although, I have to say I enjoy watching the show, it is fabricated. Everyone knows that, right?? Please say so!!!! It is contrived and gives us that mindless entertainment. So, good TV. I will say, I hope he bails on both the women. They are both idiots.

    Someone mentioned in their comments that they found it odd when Chris asked Jake if he was happy, that he just said "yes, I'm happy" and didn't gush over his feelings or state of bliss. I picked up on that too. I also picked up on certain looks that were exchanged between Jake and Ali (though I do not like Ali at all). I too think he will pick Vienna but soon split with her. He may spend more time with Gia because he did not really get to know her as she was so afraid to be forthcoming. Once she relaxed a bit and spoke openly on the show, I noted his expression. He seemed a little surprised that she had such feelings for him. I would love to see him wind up with her. If not, at least she should be the next Bachelorette.

    I really think that you need to get a new script. It is the same old thing over and over. The thing with Jake hanging his head over a railing and crying, isn't that what Jason did on his show. Get new material. As far as Ali, her plan just backfired on her. She just wanted him to say that she was the one.

    Ok one more time. Rox was segregated away from the others. She knew what was going to happen. She came on the show. She said on my son's life, no one else said that. She pulled the cheap shot on Chris and the wife of the producer. She asked for all of this. Press rewind and watch her face at the first accusation then the other night. It's the same blank stare. And this is for ratings, and for no other reason. If they cared if they really were going to get married, don't you think ABC would find better relationship material???? Look how many of these ending up with a permanent pairing of the end couple.

    Chris Harrison is a big fat LOSER. He comes across looking petty, childish & out to get Rozlyn & we know that's what his intentions were.
    They should have let her go the first time. To bring her back was humiliating & unfair. Why did she come back? I sure hope Jake is smart
    enough to pick Tenley but if he goes with Vienna he gets what he deserves. Grow up Jakey boy.

    I'm surprised that Ali is so popular here, I can't stand her! I don't think she's very attractive and she seems jealous, catty and unpleasant. I liked the lady from Tenn and thought that Jake did, too – not sure why he brought her son into it if he felt certain enough to kick her off so soon. I hope she finds a great guy. More than anything, I felt that he should have chosen Gia, not only to stay but as his potential fiancee. She seems so sweet and sincere, is very attractive and I loved her clothes from the moment she stepped out of the limo (I died when I saw that brown dress with the roses!). Ali's work crisis seemed so incredibly staged, Tenley seems super sweet and is very pretty and also seems well suited for Jake. I like Vienna and have liked her from the beginning but not for Jake so much. She has an amazing figure! The more the girls disliked her, the more I liked her. It really seemed like they were just jealous and their bashing of her only served to make them look bad, especially Ali. There, that's my two cents – thanks for listening! I don't have anyone else to talk to about it. lol I vote for GIA to be the next Bachelorette!!! (count me in for Team Gia!;)

    jake picks vienna i've known about it since the show started. just go to realitysteve.com. he has all the behind scenes scoops. he has been right on who goes home all season week by week. rozlyn has been screwed over by abc. there was no affair. the women on the tell all show that talked trash about rozlyn lied. they said in post show interviews they never saw anything, but then on the tell all show abc gave them a script basically to trash rozlyn. valisha said today that the producers hounded her into making accusations against rozlyn. abc and chris harrison who is a piece of crap should apoligize to rozlyn for creating a scandal for ratings.

I liked her at first, but, her true nature came out over time and at the end I couldn't stand her. I can't see rewarding that kind of manipulative of a person.

    This show is sooo scripted it is boring. The show has the women throwing themselves at him, no friends first, love next here. Just get it on and if you're the best in bed we'll see. It is like a horny stud turned loose in the harem, and if the women don't put out, send'm home.

I'm pretty sure no one is holding a weapon to your head and forcing you to watch this show and then bash all the people on it because you think they are a bunch of whiners! AND Ia356 perhaps we only saw Jake asking Vienna about wedding rings because that is what the editors/producers wanted us to see. He could have asked ALL of the girls that questions and had it all edited out so we would "think" that only Vienna had been asked. After all, I'm pretty sure that everyone on the show has had to use the toilet at least once, and yet we don't see that either. As far as Jake doing "An Officer and and Gentleman" ending with Ali, get a grip, THAT was a movie NOT a reality show. I know this is far from a "true" reality show, but really!!!! That would be about the dumbest ending ever. And I suppose you want him to have the final rose in his teeth too?!

The show was very fragmented and Chris Harrison tried to smash her with mud. Let's be kind. The only point in bringing her back was for embarrassment. That makes lots of people very uncomfortable.

    Hey everyone,
    Jake is going to pick Vienna because she worships him and Tenley needs someone to comfort her because of her divorce; which Jake can't give. Haven't you guys seen the way Vienna throws herself at him and he loves it. This guy has an ego bigger than the moon and Vienna is just the one to fill it. Tenley needs a man that will worhip her and provide her with affirmations to fill her big void. Jake needs someone to feed his big ego which Vienna will. Also, don't you remember that he asked Corrie if she would live with him before they got married and she responded with an immediate no. Veinna will do it and Tenley won't. This guy thinks all women on the show, which he kicked off, were truly amazing. BARF

    Well I agree with many of the posters – this show has run it's course - time to put it on the shelf. It always amazes me that these folks behave the way they do on national television – LOL ok I can only comment 'cuz I've been suckered in to watch it hoping against hope that it will get better – but noooooooo. Don't they remember that their families (and employers) are watching this crap when they let loose with the booze and some of the slutty behavior? The gals aren't the only ones – the guys can be pretty slutty too. They haven't had a successful relationship since Ryan and Trista – not a good track record if you ask me. Honestly – do you REALLY believe it came as a shock to Ali that her employer would not hold her job any longer – I would think that the show would have made her aware that she had to commit to being available through a certain date should she successfully make it through each rose ceremony. They added that phoney job thing to create a drama. Say good night Chris!!

    Don't like Vienna, to immature and bad hair. Don't like the other girl either (name ?), her voice would drive him crazy after a week. But who knows he is a little odd too, and might like an annoying voice like that.

She hoped he'd jump in his plane and come after her and he hoped she'd jump out of the limo and run back to him. C'mon! He's told both Vienna and Tenley they're not right for him and Alli is the one.

    My bet is Jake doesn't choose either one!!! Then he is free to pursue Ali who remains the one he had both chemistry and connection with. For me for some odd reason the show is entertaining fantasy & brainless TV providing time to check out from the days demands. What I really dislike is all the cat fighting that seems staged and totally unnecessary and this season's women seemed to not have much substance. Can't the show have bachelorettes who have an education and know how to conduct themselves with class and vs the giggly immature models and women who look & act like trophy wife wannabes and have no substantial life experience? Seems to me wearing a size 0 bikini is the only real requirement! This show needs a serious upgrade!

    The show has changed over the years, went from silly to mind-numbing stupid, and yesterday's show was just plain ridiculous. It's all done for the ratings and it appears that from the number of people commenting (alas, including me), it's working. I may give it one more shot but it's more than likely that I'll bail mid-season.

    Liz-I'm glad you liked my comment! I think that would be the absolute best if that happened! And most entertaining might I add.

    Yes, maybe Ali's situation was made up, but I LOVE Ali and I think her and Jake are too good together. They make such a great couple. And as others have commented-Jake teared up when just talking to her last night. It's obvious there are still some feelings there. Plus, who says I have made a "lifelong friend?" What kind of "friend" is Jake referring to?

    I like this how because it entertains me. If it's not entertaining to you, then don't watch it! It's that simple...or I find it very simple.

    I agree, Rozlyn is totally crazy! We are to believe she is telling the truth when 5 other girls are saying the opposite. If it is doesn't make sense it is probably not true. And I expect that the "producer" is not married anymore. That barb at Chris was totally uncalled for, but she knew she was going down fast. The faces she made when denying stuff were totally fake!! It was funny.

    "Has Jake found the knob so he can open the door to the closet he is in??? I think Ali did what she did because she wants to be the next bachlorette..."

    HAHAHAHA true. but Ali is a schemer. she was trying to play Jake w/a fake job problem. didn't she tell her employer ahead of time about her leave of absence?? all of a sudden, it's critical for her to get back. either she works for a clueless employer who couldn't plan properly for her absence or an employer who thought "oh she'll be booted off in 2 weeks, who would want her?". OR Ali tried to play a game and instead got played.

    Gia next bachelorette? nope. her voice is annoying but she's the better choice for Jake. Ella would make a better bachelorette. why not have a single mom looking for complete happiness??

    the fact that Jake passed up on Gia for skanky Vienna and the whole lot of divorce issues woman says the final show will be a joke, not what anyone expects.

    but leave Chris Harrison alone. he's the bomb and funny as hell, on and off the show.

    Why are people writing on here that the show is stupid. If it's stupid don't watch it.
    Personally I think Jake is nice on the eyes. He is way too nice though. He needs to be more manly. Gia, she is very pretty, but needs more self confidence. Seriously I can't tell you how many times I wanted to scream when she'd cover her mouth when she was talking. And always making that face with her mouth. Come on!! Vienna's hair is terrible..looks like hay. Tenley, I like, but I'd run far far away from her if I was Jake. She is just trying to get a substitute for her husband. Alli is ok but she just wanted Jake to beg her to stay. I don't think he picks anyone. I don't even think he'll hook up with Alli later.

    I think they are all "hot, desperate, fake, fame seekers" to go on a show to try to find love. Shows like this just add to why no one knows how to have a normal stable relationship anymore and why people think it is OK to date a bunch of people (IE all the stupid internet dating sites) at the same time.

    Its one thing to go to dinner with two different men in the same week, but it is a different story to go on a date on Monday with one person "rave about how much you like them and make out with them, then go out to dinner with someone else two days later and say the same things about them and make out with them too, then go back and forth!"

    I hate to say this, but if I started dating a man and he showed the "intentions" that all of the bachelors and bachelorettes show the "CONTESTANTS" and he was kissing another girl, we would have some problems.

    This show promotes CHEATING, not monogamy – surprise, surprise when someone cheats on the show!

    What bothers me is the fact that the women (or the men on the Bachelorette) say they came on the show to fall in love with Jake (insert bachelor(ette) here). When in fact they applied for the show long before they even knew who the bachelor even was. So it is obvious they just fall for whoever happens to be the bachelor. Of couse people are going to fall for someone when they are living an extravagent lifestyle (limos, yachts, paradise, etc.)...

    Fun stuff! For those of us who watch it, The Bachelor is mindless entertainment. For those who participate, it's either a chance to find "Mr./Ms. Right" or an opportunity for exposure. I loved the other contestants' comments about Tenley ... along the lines of she acts like she stepped right out of a Disney movie, she (bleeps) rainbows, and she dreams in cartoons! But, as an Oregonian, I hope Jake picks her.

    I agree with most of you-so what if Rozlyn wasn't in love with Jake, not everyone would be! I will say though that some of the things that were said were a little suspicious...like, the producer and the producer's father visiting her. Umm...pretty sure that's not "normal." Maybe this relationship between her and the producer really didn't happen, but that's what the entertainment industry is all about-finding ways to make their numbers go up which means having more viewers. If there isn't some kind of drama, who is going to watch the show?? I know I wouldn't!

    I watched this season religiously, I have yet to miss an episode. With that, I will say I think that some of these things were plotted-I mean this is a TV SHOW! You can't just let everything happen on a whim, some of it has to be planned. On that note, I think Jake picks Vienna, but they only last a few months since she is so immature. I think Jake is totally attracted to Vienna for the instant sex drive he gets from her. She's young and has a lot of that right now. I like Tenley a lot, but I don't think she's anywhere near being over her ex. That's all she talks about on some of the episodes-my ex husband this, and he was my last, and we saved each other for our day. GET OVER IT! YOU'RE DONE! I think Jake will be single after this whole thing-like someone else had mentioned in the blog (sorry can't find who said it) he said he was happy with his decision-nothing about BEING happy. Ali was my favorite from the beginning. Yes, she wasn't always poised, but I know being a woman myself that I'm not either. We all have flaws. I thought her and Jake really hit it off. I think it would be the best thing ever if Jake went back on the bachelorette show to see if he could win Ali's heart again. That could be interesting!

    I wished Chris' response would have been MUCH better when she made the comment about him flirting with the producer's wife. Saying you won't dignify it with an answer is only a "mature" way of NOT having an answer! So to ME, he WAS guilty of flirting since he didn't want to offer any defense to it. But how trashy and cheap of Roslyn to bring it up. It's no surprise though, because trash spills trash.

    OK folks... here goes. Jake will not select either Vienna or Tinley and will opt out, waiting til after the show and then, go after Ali. Plain and simple. Look at what he said last night when talking about her leaving – he was obviously in love with her and in my humble opinion, still is. Ali has feelings for him as well. Anyway – when it comes down to it – it would make a repeat of the Jason season, with a twist. No selection, just plain truth.

    I don't understand what anyone sees in Ali, the pretentous leave for her job, she kept wiping her face over and over again as if she had a bad headache – she wants to win, but it wasn't about love. I don't care for Vienna's forwardness, she's almost scary of her assurance, and I think Tinley is very sweet, so I hope he decides on Tenley – but good riddens to Ali. I agree with most, Gia should be the next Bachelorette, I can't imagine what he didn't see in her -she is beautiful inside and out. I'm still shocked that Vienna is in the game, still, but I thought Ali's apparent spite of Vienna was very very unbecoming and unattractive. As much as Vienna is a tad bit immature and overly agressive, I thought Ali was jealous and vindictive inside – I was beginning to think her who mission was to make sure Vienna didn't get further along in the show – I didn't see Ali blossoming at all as wife material.

I've watched this show for awhile and there was little said between Jake and Ali during the tell all show. It's as if more can be gained by what wasn't said between the them compared to what was said. Their glances at each other and their body language was completely different than that the other girls.

    Gia was definitely my top choice for Jake and for next Bachelorette, please. Although, I was impressed with his interest in Christina last night because I was sad when he dropped her so soon. If the rumors are true and he chooses Vienna, who, as much as I dislike Vienna, is less repulsive to me than Tenley for some reason, I can see why he has already dumped Vienna and is already putting out feelers for someone new. And this is kind of mean, so forgive me, but as much as I love Gia and I want her to be next Bachelorette, I just thought of who her smile reminds me of - Jack Nichelson's The Joker - ooh, that's mean though, cause she is totally gorgeous and sweet and deserves to be next Bachelorette - no Ali, please - I cannot stand her.

Clearly, he felt the need to defend the show from the idea that Rozlyn's behavior was staged for television purposes. The premise of the show is a bit unrealistic but it is entertainment. And ABC never fails to entertain with the Bachelor. Whether it's contrived or not, it's light hearted and fun.

So what? She is very genuine and if you recall, she was NOT the one who was hacking up the other contestants. She remained more of a lady in that respect than any of them, Gia included. Gia needs to drop the baby cooing. It's old already. "Is it okay to fall?". THAT was immature. Gag. Going to bed with a little girl would become a big yawn in a big hurry.

    I think Ali is going to be the next Bachelorette. Might be Gia though. One of those two. Oh, wait. If Tenley gets turned down it will be Tenley hands down.
    sigh.
    He needs to pick Vienna. She's the only one he relaxes and is himself with.

    I don't know why you're Mr. Dinan is trashing Chris. You're starting to remind me of Rozlyn. Luckily I didn't start watching The Bachelor until he was down to about 6 girls. Initially I thought Ali was a doll. Then I witnessed her and the other 2 girls that were kicked off together (which I thought was fantastic) being cruel, judgmental and vindictive. I immediately was disgusted by all three after that. I was impressed that Ali smartened up and realized that she was being vicious. I have a new respect for her. Leave Vienna alone. This is Jake's choice – not ours. I'm disgusted to see such BULLYING by these women. It's really very disheartening. As far as Rozlyn goes, things happen for a reason. Jake is WAY too nice of a guy for this lying tramp. She really seemed to have an ax to grind with Chris when in reality, all of the girls ratted her out – as they should have. That woman is pure evil. How sad that her son has her to look up to. Yuck!

    The Bachelor is low life TV at its finest. What a crock. Didn't Jake look a little sheepish on the show. Why, you may ask? Oh, because he picked Vienna at the end. Yes, that white swamp trashy girl, and they have since broken up, of course. He is a loser of the royal degree, and picking Vienna just shows you what low life he is.

    So, all his lines (fed by the producers) were pure bull. Jake would not know a quality lady if she ran him over. He is a scumbag for sure.

    And yes, Ali will be the next Bachelorette. Anyone could see that they way they highlighted her.

    I feel most sorry for Tenley, who is a real nice lady. Unfortunately, not so bright for 1)going on this fake show, and 2)actually falling for flakey Jakey. She is lucky for sure he is going to dump her.

    I wonder at the end of this Women Tell All show, if Jake went over and hit on a few of the gals that he dumped, now that he is no longer with Vienna. I'd give you great odds that he actually did!

    To whoever wrote this article... it looks like somebody named James Dinan... If you don't like the show, why do you have to have to write about it at all? If you're forced to watch and write, you must not have had much of a life. Couldn't you find a job writing about something you like? Maybe not, the writing's not very good.

    The Bachelor is an okay show. It's better than most of the stuff thrown out there today, "reality" or otherwise.

    I love the thought of Ali coming to Jake's rescue next week. She has been my favorite since the day she got out of that limo in that yellow dress. So, she wasn't a fan of some of the other girls...what girl is truly BFF with all the girls in their mans' lives? I know I'm not.

    I think Gia would be just fine on the next stint. I think her own deal would help her break out a bit. I think Ashleigh would be a great next bachelorette as well.

    i'd the producers to pick a better selection of women next time. enough of the early-twentties/models/waitresses girls that are soooooo ready for marriage and kids (did you guys take notice of the reunion gang?? those guys & girls that were sooooooooo ready for marriage and in love and blah blah blah are soooooooooooo NOT! they want to party & flirt & get down and dirty as much as they can – good for them!) – not that age is everything but life esxperience is. a 23year old woman or man can't possibly know enough about life & relationships to be 'ready' for marriage & all. show us the real deal: mid-thirties &up man – late 20s & up women (ok, ok.. that might not work either but can't you give it a try??? we need another 'triista & ryan" happy ending for crying out loud!!

    My two cents... Jake will pick neither Vienna nor Tinley... he made a comment in last nights episode that eludes to the idea that he has made other tough decisions 'that have not aired yet." He seemed to have eyes for Ali last night... I bet he will end up with her in the end after this season of the Bachelor has finished airing. Time will tell.

    And my vote for next bachelorette (if I bother to watch this show in the future) is for Gia.... beautiful, sweet and classy.

    If anyone really paid attention to the show last week, Jake asked Vienna about rings she liked, thick vs thin bands, stone shape (she likes princess), etc. That should maybe be a clue who he's going to pick since he never asked the other girls that question. Yes, she is very immature and don't think she's even close to ready for marriage. Ali has more grace and maturity than Vienna, hands down. Tenley would be far better but we'll have to see what actually happens. I read a spoiler several weeks ago that Vienna was picked but who knows......

    I don't think that Jake knows what love really is, especially when he kept saying how he was falling in love with several of the women. If he really had fallen for Ali, he would of run after her. He has no clue. I look forward to watching the next "Bachelor", when Viana and Tenly visit his parents. I hope they make him realize how immature these two girls are. Viana does not come off as being sincere, so I hope that because his parents and friends are on the outside looking in, that they will be able to convince him that definitely, Viana is not right for him, and Tenly, well, she also has immature tendencies. Jake is better off going after Ali. That would be true love. It would be best if he admits that he made a mistake and send Viana and Tenly home, go after Ali, or just start looking for another girl.

    It's sad that people actually think this stuff is real. People, how many seasons has this show been on? Both in bachelor and bachelorette form? And how many actual relationships have succeeded out of it? Two? Do you really think people go onto this show with love in their hearts? Does that even make sense when history shows that few if any "proposals" actually end up happening? It's a show for pretty people to be dramatic and get ratings. And I think you can tell that by the caliber of contestants. It becomes more and more clear each season there are definitely people on the show simply for the fame it can bring. Saying the right things, acting the part,etc. just to get more camera time.

    Not sure why some of you do not care for Ali, but she actually believed like The Pretty Woman, that Jake would come and get her. That's what she wanted him to do to prove his feelings for her. And he really wanted her to jump out of the limo and come running back. She is right, its a show and if he chooses Tenley or Vienna and it doesn't work, which it won't for long, she hopes he will come knocking at her door saying he should never have let her go. That would be a storybook ending. Whether it happens or not, we'll see. I have no prob with Ali being the next bachelorette if he doesn't. I liked Gia too, but she is so shy and introverted, she hasn't the right personality to be the bachelorette for TV. I was shocked when Rozlyn came out with her comment to Chris about hitting on the producer's wife. Low blow aimed because she had nothing else to go on. She had been proven a liar by too many of the girls. One may have lied or exaggerated, but not so many.

    All this being said, I really don't like Jake anymore and don't really care if he gets his wife or not.

    Vienna is the best choice. She is real, and speaks her mind. That's more than can be said for the other girls. And I think she is honest. The other girls are just jealous of her. Probably Vienna will become fake and a liar after she gets to be the age the other girls are. But right now she is fine, and that's why Jake likes her.

    Chris Harrison is a jerk, and I hate him almost as much as I do Ryan Seacrest. His excuse about 'dignifying her' question was just an out for him. Rozlyn shouldn't have dignified several of his questions too, especially after he repeated them 3 or 4 times. Like he had some real dirt on her.

    I find it hard to believe Ali's job was in jeopardy, considering when she signed up for this gig she knew approximately how long she would have to participate. It seems to me that she was only trying to force Jake to promise he would choose her, which was certainly premature at that point and left him no option but to let her go. Rozlyn, clearly is still in a relationship with the producer. When she decided that the producer was the one she wanted and not Jake she should have gracefully bowed out of the show instead of trying to deny. Calling everyone liars and staking her child life on her claims of innocence did nothing for her reputation. Gia, should have tried to wear her heart on her sleeve, she may have gotten further, and she admitted that. I am not sure why Michelle constantly packed and threatened to leave, you can only threaten that so many times before it comes true, I am sure Jake was just fed up with her bizarre behavior.
    Despite what most people seem to feel about Vienna, I like her, she seems honest and fun, albeit she may be young and somewhat immature, I see some of that immaturity in Jake, maybe they can grow up together. Tenley, I like as well, she appears to be fun loving, mature and sincere. Jake has an interesting choice ahead.

    There is definately chemistry between Ali and Jake. You can tell by how they look at each other. I have said from the beginning that Jake doesn't pick anyone. Vienna is too young and Tenley is not over the fact that she is divorced. When they show previews for the final episode both girls look like they are not crying happy tears. Roz can't face the truth that she's a floozy. She needs to stop being a loose woman and raise her son. Grow- up. I think him and Ali should give it another try.

    it is obvious to anyone with an ounce of common sense that most of the women on the show would have no problem finding a suitor. obviously they're very 'telegenic' if you want to call it that, and everyone knows that most of us are shallow these days. that is why i conclude that these so called ladies are doing this for attention, money, or some other alternate reason other than what the show is meant for.

When did not falling for the guy who is kissing 25 other women makes that person crazy, unstable, and a tramp? I think the other girls are even crazier for thinking the show is real, and a great way to meet a man.

    The FINAL 2 couldnt be more different... Tenley is classy, Vienna is classless.... but they can both get annoying!

    Vienna says she's never been in love before. Wait a second, wasn’t she was married to one guy and engaged to another? WEIRD!!

    As for Tenley... keeps saying "I love everything about you!" but as usual, she KEEPS bringing up her ex-husband. She reminds Jake AGAIN that she has only been with ONE other man so this is a BIG step. In the Fantasy Suite, they talk about morals before getting busy... Jake's like, "Yeah, yeah, totally, I sooo respect your values and morals. So do you want to go make out in the pool now?" She doesn't hesitate for a second. Maybe its because Jake asked her to dance earlier? Which is her favorite activity, like, EVER...

    Aaaaaaaaaaah too funny. I just hope he DOESN'T pick Vienna. But I CANT STAND JAKE either, so I couldnt care less.

    As for the next BACHELORETTE, I will NOT watch if it ends up being ALI. The fakest out of the bunch. I would much rather watch GIA!!!!!!! She has my vote :)

    When you see the montage of the next episode, it is clear the difference between the two women he has to choose from: Tenley is classy and would be a good wife and Vienna is low rent and would be a good bang. He'll probably choose the latter like so many men do and then wonder later how he got hooked up with a cheap gold digger.

    OK less, you know that our tax dollars don't fund this show, right???
    Rozlyn is a lying tramp. Did anyone watch her face??? To bring up that the producer was married only hurt the wife, and children if any. Especially hers. Ali, that was such a put on about the job/Jake thing. I think that Jake is classless, himself. I hope he gets what he deserves, Vienna. What a floozy....Please bring back some class to this show. It used to be fun to watch. Now it's just another freak show.
    Chris, I am glad you stood up for yourself but why put yourself in that postion by bringing her back in the first place. Yes, all producers visit the contestant's home, RIGHT!!!!! Gia, you are a doll but you don't have the confidence to do a bachelorette on your own.

    As for the next Bachelorette, does anyone else think Ashleigh would be an interesting choice? She seems much more lively than Ali, Gia or any of the other "front runners" for that spot. I think she's beautiful, and guys would definitely like her!

    I still think that Jake is not going to pick either one of the two left ... He is just going to walk away. It looked as though in the previews his family did not like Vienna!!!!
    I think he will seek Ali out and they will date – Didn't he tell her that she had a "lifelong friend"!!!!!

    I say he picks Tenley. He'd be crazy to pick Vienna, but then again, most of the time they pick the one you don't think they should (and look at their success rate, hmmm). He should pick neither of them and then run back to Aly, but that won't happen either. (I guess it could though......)

    Aly can't be the next Bachelorette - she'd have to give up her job.......(that would be a slap in Jake's face if she were to give up her job to do that, wouldn't it?)

    It's called ENTERTAINMENT. It wouldn't be on the air if it did not make money for the network. Lighten up! It was fun. Roz signed a contract and broke it. She was supposed to at least pretend she was falling for Jake for the few weeks she was there. She and the producer BOTH blew it. Did they truly believe nothing would happen when they messed with a multimillion dollar money machine?
    I enjoyed the "show" and can't wait till the finale. Everyone knows Jake picks Vienna. (Poor Choice, but then again it is only an entertainment show)

    I just don't get it... if you don't like the show, don't watch it and stop ridiculing those of us to do. My husband & I look forward to Monday nights to watch the Bachelor, it's fun and mindless entertainment in an otherwise hectic day.

    So if you don't like the show, and claim not to watch it, why are you spending time on the blogs knocking it? Don't you have something better to do? You're obviously a bunch of hypocrites.

    I enjoy the show each season and hope it continues to entertain us for many more.

    This season had just as much drama as any other...at least it's pretty obvious that Jake has been sincere, albeit occasionally moronic, throughout the whole ordeal. The Rozlyn event seemed like a producer-fabricated lie to kill two birds with one dramarama episode, and Rozlyn was being victimized for ratings... but in this episode, she sort of indirectly admitted it when she got hostile towards Chris (although no one could blame her- a televised audience just applauded AGAINST her. that is utterly humiliating).

    Michelle is a crazy bird, all right.

    Ali is over-rated and I am sick of her already. Other women deserved to have air time instead of the show giving the spotlight to Ali, Rozlyn and headcase Michelle. Rozlyn has no redeeming qualities whatsoever.... she is pretty- THATS IT. Rozlyn truly made an ass of herself on national television. She tripped over her own words and had trouble explaining her quick exit. She was nailed to the wall by the other women and did not seem believable at all. Her comment to Chris about him hitting on some guys' wife in HI was tacky. I do not think Rozlyn should have gone on the show-nothing was accomplished except making her look like a liar and a phony. She's an idiot.

    If the laugh tracks added to Michelle's disgrace, imagine Roz's reaction when she viewed the final edit on HER segment! As far as Ali is concerned, don't hope for a show with more integrity with her at the helm... she "woke up" in San Francisco with a cameraman filming her. All this cheap stuff has been added to embelish a show that made the unfortunate decision to invite an incredibly BORING bachelor!

    I enjoyed the show. People are saying Michelle is emotionally unstable, but I think Rozlyn is a time bomb waiting to go off.....a little scary. Her poor child (whose life she swore on...who does that?). I think Jake will not choose Vienna or Tenley, I think he and Ali already have something in the works. Can't wait till Monday.

    It wasn't as bad as you make it sound. Was it compelling TV, no, but then no one ever said it was suppose to be. Jake is a fake & Rozlyn is the biggest liar around. Chris maintained his cool despite the 2 min. wonder Rozlyn telling him to calm down. Who the heck does she think she is? I think Chris showed remarkable calm by not slapping her silly. I don't think Jake pics either Vienna or Tenley. Just my own prediciton, but based purely on body language & eye contact non-contact, I think he finally thinks with his mind & heart & not that other part of him & actually goes after Ali, who in my estimation is not only pretty, but intelligent & handles herself well. I'm just saying.

    I think Rozlyn is a joke. I would be totally humilated for not being able to tell the truth. What a liar. I think Chris Harrison handled her comment about him hitting on someone's elses wife very well, although if his looks could kill.....!

    I think Jake is a good guy... Not sure about Tenley for him or Vienna, if I was forced to pick, I said he should land with Tenley. Vienna is too immature and is not marriage material.

    Oh, come on, you left out the best part: where Rozlyn asked Chris if he considered that ex-producer a friend, to which Chris responded he did. To which Rozlyn then said that was news to the ex-producer, especially considering the fact that Chris hit on his wife in Hawaii! (???) Chris didn't dignify it with an answer. Good for him. I think it was at that point that I realized just how classless Rozlyn was to say that on the air. She only confirmed to me her untruthfulness in the whole affair. What a fine example to set as a mother. I hate these stupid reality TV shows...go away, all of you!

    Are you kidding me. During the Ryan and Trista stage, it
    still had some class, but over the past two or three shows, it's
    more like Jerry Springer.

    Why even bring her (Rozlyn) on the show. Over and done with.
    So what if she had a bigger connection with the producer
    than Jake....Move on. Right or wrong, your bashing her on the show
    to prove that you guys did nothing wrong is WRONG, CHEAP and
    made the show cheezy. Well cheezier than what its become.

    I hope that if Ali is the next one, they bring it back to where it all
    began. Sensationalism is better left to the news media.
    Let this be a reality show with some class at least.

    Hahaha great article. I totally agree with everything you said. I am still wondering why Rozlyn agreed to come on yesterday – it was awkward for everybody. It is SO pathetic to me how Ali pretended she was being real when she chose work over Jake. It was obviously staged. I cant stand to watch all these women cry over one man – who is very annoying to say the least. I just wonder if they are getting paid to say these things... because it is incredibly dumb on their part to look so desperate.
