And Jake gives his rose to ...

...Vienna Girardi.

The 23-year-old Florida woman defeated Tenley Molzahn to win the 14th season of "The Bachelor."  The moment of truth came after nearly two hours of Vienna, Tenley and "Bachelor" Jake Pavelka going on and on about love, having hearts of gold and making tough decisions.

As to why Jake rejected Tenley, Jake said on both the finale and the "After the Final Rose" special that there was something with Tenley that felt forced, and that a "magical spark" that existed between he and Vienna didn't exist with Tenley.

Jake also told host Chris Harrison that Vienna is the best girl for him and, in his words, "everyone needs to trust that."  As for the couple's future, Vienna says she's moving to Dallas to be with Jake, who says he's ready for a "new change" in his life.  No date has been set for any wedding but, if next week's broadcast of the Jason-Molly wedding is a hit, ABC may be pressuring the two to tie the knot sooner rather than later.

After all was said and done, we were introduced to the next "Bachelorette", who will search for love in May, once Jake and his "Dancing with the Stars" brethren shuffle off the air.  This year's Bachelorette is Ali Fedotowsky, who chose work over Jake a few weeks back.  Ali, looking like she's dressed for a Belinda Carlisle look-a-like contest, told Chris that she wants to be in love, get married and have kids.  What better way to do that than a second tour of duty on a "reality" show?

What did you think of "The Bachelor" finale?  Did Jake make the right pick?  Will Jake and Vienna get married?  What's your thoughts on Ali as the next star of "The Bachelorette"?

    This is hysterical! Jake obviously isn't the brightest bulb in the pack – you could tell from his lack of vocabulary skills on the show. Who cares if he's got great abs – give it 10 years and we'll laugh at his beer gut! Poor Vienna – she thinks Jake is some fabulous pilot for some incredible airline, that they'll travel the world in style, and that she now will acquire major $$$$ from him. HA HA HA! Hate to inform you Vienna, he works for Mesa Airlines – he's lucky to bring in $50K a year!!!! Guess little princess Vienna, if you were gold diggin' you got an empty mine shaft! That's probably why he took the gig with DWTS – so he could make some money because his po-dunk airline salary isn't even going to come close to what you require just to keep up your roots and extensions! Ali was smart and lucky to get out when she did!

    Jake you are a jerk, poor tenley, she gave it all to you, and you devastated her, but she was so mature about it all, she is more of a woman than Vienna will ever be. You need to seriously rethink your choice man, it is obvious you went to the physical chemistry, more than the love chemistry with Vienna.

    Totally wrong choice in my opinion. I think that once the glitz of being shuttled all over the world in helicopters, airplanes, limos and boats wears off, Vienna will see what the real world is going to be like and the hot romance will take a cooling down. I think Jake has his heart in the right place just the wrong girl.

    I thought it was cool that Jake told Tenley he will always love her in a special way she got a life time friend in him. I hope that Jake will remain friends with Tenley. I hope that Jake & Vienna will remain good friends with Tenley. I know that feeling when the right one walks into your life. I met my husband in August 2001 and we didn't want to wait. We got married in November 2001. We are super happy. We been married 9 years come this November. I wish Jake & Vienna the very best in their happiness. I wish Ali all the best on the Bachelorette in finding true love. Ali believe in yourself finding true love on the show and it will happen.
    I love the Bachelor & Bachelorette. Need to get some one in their 40's or 50's on the show it can happen to those at those ages too.

    I don't think he picked the right woman. Vienna is young and she is very immature; reality is going to hit at some point and he may end up getting annoyed by her "brutal honesty". She has a lot of growing up to do. Jake is a quiet guy and Tenley would have been a better choice for a long term relationship. Anyway, it's his choice and I hope they can make it work.

    This show is a good way to teach future generations how NOT to define love. Jake, and now Ali, were rejected on previous shows proclaiming their undying love and broken hearts and yet they can turn around in a few months and forget that special love to find another in a few short weeks. This is not reality; this show should be on during the day with the rest of the soap operas!

    YIKES! I just read the comments on this blog and all I can say is that apparently, this show attracts a LOT of angry and mean viewers. Geez guys – perspective. Everyone on the show knew each other for months, at most. So no one is going to DIE if they never see the other person again! It was a show – just enjoy it for what it was! Why do so many people take HIS decision so personally when it doesn't affect them at all?! The way the contestants are getting attacked, it sounds like a lot of the 'viewers' of this show need professional help, rather than the actual participants!! LOL!

    Honestly, I think Jake made a wrong choice. He will discover that Tenley was perfect for him. She brought out his maturity. Whereas Vienna brought out the opposite. I suppose if you're looking for someone in life to be a kid with ALWAYS AND FOREVER, then maybe Vienna was the right choice for him.

    As far as Ali goes.. she shouldn't be the next bachelorette.. period...
    If she can't even stay on "The Bachelor" due to her work, how is she going to stay and be "The Bachelorette"?! If she was so ready to find 'love' the first time, she would've never left in the first place... Idiot.

    Above all, I was pretty P.O.ed that she didn't stay. They (Jake and Ali) would've made a cute couple as well!

    After watching the show this season, I was dissapointed in Jakes choice. Clearly there were issues that he just didn't see. I think Viena is going to be a very jealous wife. Also, don't you think it's a bit much for Jake to now be on dancing with the stars? Come on! I think he likes to be in the spotlight more than he wants to be with Vienna. I believe this is his way of still dating other women.. haha!

    I think Jake really doesn't know what Jake wants. I found him also to be pretty immature at the end of the shows. He wants a guy to hang out with maybe... hmmmm.

    People don't like Vienna because she is immature.

    Well, its a match made in heaven because Jake isn't very mature either. He's just a rich Ken Doll who doesn't know what he wants.

    At some point one of them is going to grow up and realize the other is far behind and then the relationship will falter.

    The reason he couldn't put his rejecting Tenley into words isn't because he was afraid to hurt her feelings, but because he simply didn't know.

    She had no faults, which can be intimidating to someone who knows he isn't able to meet her halfway.

    Jake was scared he couldn't man up to her and was more comfortable with Vienna.

    Won't last.

    Okay. I must say that we have to end this at some point. Jake did not see what Vienna (ick) was doing on the show in front of the other girls. He made his choice based on his feelings. Now, with that being said, if he cannot see, after watching the episodes, that Vienna had an ulterior motive and was playing "a game", then he has some screws loose as well. He had a second chance to either fall in love with her or see her for what and who she is. A person with no real morals and no real feelings.
    More power to him if he likes a game player.

    I think Ali is a poor choice for the next show. Will she have to go back for her job mid-show? I also thought she was very mean to Vienna and had started her own little 'team' against Vienna. I'm sorry I can't let Ali's ego get larger than life, just like the shape of her face/head. I'm not impressed with this choice and I've been a fan of the bachelor/bachelorette series for a long time.

    Just watched my recording of Regis and Kelly from this morning.

    Jake admitted on National Television today that the reason he didn't pick Tenley was because he didn't find her sexually attractive.

    He made up the song and dance about physical and sexual attraction being two different things because he didn't want to "hurt her".

    So our suspicions are now confirmed – he chose Boob-ienna because she is a party girl..........with fake body parts.....no brains and having her on his arm makes him feel like a "real man".

    Not only is he a joke – now he is just a jerk...............and my comments above about him being a player are now confirmed.

    He makes my skin crawl.

    KitKatKare............Jake is not the man he portrayed himself to be. You are not naive. You were duped. As were we all.

    Apparently he has been a "serial dater" all of his life. He was in a relationship when The Bachelorette called him to join the show and dumped his girlfriend so he could be on television and re-activate his non-existant acting career.

    Yes – folks! – he has tried (unsuccesfully) to be an actor!

    Then – when he lost out on The Bachelorette – even after his dramatic return ( cough – ACTOR) .......he was already in a relationship with a different woman.........but when they asked him to be The Bachelor.....once again, he dumped the woman he was dating to get ANOTHER 15 minutes of fame.

    Let's face it America – He did ALL of this for the exposure! That's why he chose Boob-ienna the sl*t. To get attention....to be in the tabloids and further his career. To be in the limelight.

    Think about it – he goes into this season of the show as "poor handsome Jake" – Jillian turned him down and "Oh my..we feel SO sorry for him" – let's make him the next Bachelor and find sweet adorable Jake the love of his life. Poor Jake who never had a date in high school – or so he told us.. Yea – right buddy!

    But once he gets on the show – he decides (or his PR People tell him) he has to keep the public interested in this drivel known as The Bachelor.

    So as soon as the other women start to see Boob-ienna for what she really is....he begins to favour her. Even after they warn him – he favours her. Even after she is RUDE – interrupting several one on one chats – he doesn't see what she is doing??? Give me a break. He AGAIN favours her. He meets her redneck white trash family....and he STILL favours her.

    Last night confirmed my suspicions. He PURPOSELY told his family that Boob-ienna was detested by the other women. He was creating tension for better ratings.

    Oh – and then – all of a sudden they all love her?? WTF?? He must have had to beg and plead on bended knees to get them to "act" that scene. How much of his salary from Dancing with he Stars did he promise them to go along with that charade?????

    If I was his mother and he used me like that – boy would he be written out of the will.

    Memo to Jake – you don't do that to your Family. Shame on you.

    But you got what you wanted Jakie-boy! You are still – unfortunately – on TV for several more months.

    Memo to Jake – this is not an acting career – no matter what anyone tells you. Your plan backfired big time.

    Go fly a plane. You belong alone in a cockpit ( and yes the pun is intended) where intelligent people no longer have to put up with your childish self centred ways.

    You are such a joke.

    OK, call me naive, but I really thought Jake was a man of character and integrity. I'm sooooo disappointed that he let his lower body part decide his "future wife." Jake and Vienna are clearly from different social classes – their families are NOT compatible and this will be a big issue down the line. It's hilarious to think of contrasting Vienna's "Daddy's Little Girl" father against Jake's father....no compariston. I'm a little biased since I'm an Oregonian, but I was really rooting for Tenley since she came across very strongly as a woman of substance and will make a wonderful wife to a very luck guy someday. I think it's interesting that Jake told Tenley he put her on a pedestal because she was so perfect and didn't feel as comfortable relating to her as he did Vienna (feels superior to her, I guess.) That's the same thing Jillian and others criticized HIM and rejected him for (being too perfect) when he was on the Bachelorette. He was projecting his own stuff onto Tenley.

    I dont think he made the right choice as far as a wife goes. Vienna does not seem like someone he can be married to for 60 years. She may be good for the moment, but not marriage material. They obviously have a great physical attraction, but that wont last.
    Tenley was more appropriate for a wife and had the same values Jake claimed to have. Maybe he didnt have a 'spark' with her that he had with Vienna, but he would've been better off choising Tenley for the long run. Good luck to them, they will need it.
    Good luck to Tenley too, I hope she finds someone to sweep her off her feet and treat her the way she deserves to be loved.

    I guess to keep it thrilling he had to pick the most unattractive of them all. Her hair stylist needs to make sure her roots on her head are always dyed since she is as fake as her hair. Jake absolutely will regret his choice in the end. It was physical alright. She will also end up having problems with her sister-in-laws especially if she was the one pretty much no one liked. It is more than just being honest and upfront about things. You can tell people your opinion without being hated it is the way you say it. She is one of those who doesn't care how others feel.

    The only thing Jake's getting is a rude awakening. Vienna looks like a professional troller of bars, just to be noticed, no matter what. She's a skank, unattractive in every sense of the word, and there's no way THAT marriage will EVER happen. Maybe Tenley wasn't right for him but really, did he have to be so rude on the boat? Vienna isn't right for anyone. Not from planet earth anyway. Now she'll have her ugly mug on TV every week on DWTS. After that, I suspect they'll part ways, not on good terms.

I liked him last year & was sad when he wasn't chosen for the bacholer.

    He kept saying that something was missing with Tenley. I think he was refering to the concept of 'growing up'. Tenley is much more mature than Vienna. With Vienna, he can stay the kid, having fun, etc. With Tenley, he will have to face responsibity and maturity. Make Jake wven lamer than I thought he was. But if he's looking for nothing but fun and games and staying immature, Vienna is the perfect girl for him.

    I am shocked that Ali was chosen as the next "Bachorlette". Was no one watching this year, she is nasty, manipulative, controlling, a bully and a liar, she is also really good at faking emotion/feelings. All the bad press Vienna got was mainly due to Ali being so nasty to Vienna. I for one was so happy when Jake rejected you and told you not to come back, served you right. Vienna had to constantly be sticking up for herself. Well Ali what goes around comes around, hope you fall hard for one of the guys and he says no in the end...it will serve you right for being such a biach to Vienna....Vienna did not deserve you and your posse bulling her. And your fake apology I did not buy a word of it....to little to late. I will bet that it will be the lowest rated show on TV when it is aired.

    Tenely was too whimpy and she made me sick with her fake sweetness, she just wanted to be married to ANYONE and to show her ex someone wanted her...she NEVER stopped talking about the ex....BORING. Who gives a rats ass about your ex, lots of people have exs. Vienna did not obsess about her ex and ONLY talked about him if asked directly. Vienna is a strong independent, sweet, playful, adventerous, spontanious, outgoing and beautiful woman. Good for Jake not listening to everyone else, and seeing Vienna for who she really is. When Jake called her his baby last night my heart just melted, no matter what ANYONE says you can tell that they love each other and in the end that is ALL that matters. It was SO obvious how much they love each other, there was no mistaking it. So Vienna and Jake long life and much happiness to you.

    funny..if you notice, most of these postings are from women who hate vienna. if you read some of the mens posts, they aren't as harsh. im glad vienna won. jake saw something in her that other "women" did not see. vienna wasn't there for the other women or what they think. she was there for jake and if she is there for more, like her own celebrity status, then that will play out in the end. if not, i hope jake and her are happy.

    btw, i cannot STAND Ali. she was too focused on vienna and the other girls. she is whinny and frankly sounds too annoying. but she caused the most drama, so why wouldn't nbc want her as the next bachelorette?? all for viewers like you..

    First, Ali is a logical choice for the next "Bachelorette." She appears to have a heart of gold, with all her "ducks in a row" (except for her previous confusion over what really matters when you're on your deathbed) and a genuinely nice person. From what I've seen on TV (and if there was anything at all negative about her personality, I feel certain it would've been aired) I think she'd make a terrific best friend for anyone, man or woman.

    Does the process work? Well, the "process" is entertainment. And, even though I've found it to be pretty lame entertainment, somebody is watching this show enough to keep it on the air for so many years. Regardless of the end result, all these contestants get wined and dined in exotic places, on vacations they'd probably never otherwise enjoy, with wardrobe that most of them could probably never afford.

    I would've liked to have seen the final contestants meet Jake's family in their own environment. Because, I (really) wanted to know how they live. Vienna is clearly low-class, from a low-class background, and the most self-centered female I've encountered in decades, with all her sense of entitlement drilled into her by her doting thuggish father. My point is that I wanted to see how varied their lifestyles are, or otherwise, how far he's stooping. Regardless of that "something special" he should've been looking far, far down the road, trying to envision how the impact of a girl (not woman) like Vienna would influence any children they may have. While his vocabularly is embarrassingly limited. Her grammar is horrifically typical of Central Florida hicks. (Sorry, I'm a transplant to Central FL from the DC area, and the lousy grammar I hear around here every day, still drives me over the edge.)

    They claim Vienna is moving to Dallas to cohabitate with Jake "immediately." I give the relationship less than 90 days, post-cohabitation. Unless he's really stupid, he should figure out in that amount of time how badly he screwed up. If Vienna is really good at keeping up the pretense, maybe she has 6 months.

    As much as it's none of my business who anyone chooses, I actually cried, because of how I see his life unfolding, based on this one disasterous choice.

    So Jake picked Vienna. It's his life and he will have to live with the outcome. I did not think much of Vienna at first, but that might be due to the editing and the fact that more than 3 girls in a room will make for trouble. If they are happy, God bless them both. I am also happy for Molly and wish them the best of luck. It was a shock last year when all that happened, but those things happen in real life, minus the TV cameras. Get over it Melissa. Oh ya, you did and quit fast I see. Also, Brad from Austin, I respect the decision he made a few years back. Just my opinion.

    I thought Tenley would make the better choice if you are talking about spending 60 years together. I just don't see Vienna being that kind of woman for Jake. Vienna is short term in my opinion. And the show must be scripted. How else can you explain Ali having to leave due to work and now being able to take off a month to do the bachelorette? Either that or she got other job offers since being on the show and doesn't need her current one as much as she did.

    I am happy that Jake went with Vienna. It's not up to America to decide for him, it's up to himself. I'm glad that he went with what his mind and heart were telling him. If he would have chosen Tenley, they wouldn't have lasted. Tenley is/was to caught up with her ex-husband, she talked about him or that marriage on every show.

    I don't think Vienna is ugly but is not the ideal girl some people put Jake with. I was routing for her since the beginning of the show. She is a straight forward type of person and it's a shame that the tabloids are trashing her like they are.

    It's also a shame that some of you are name calling up here from behind your compyuter where no one can see what you look like.

    All in all, I'm glad Jake chose her and I can't wait to see him on "Dancing with the Stars"!!

    I'm through watching his series...used to really enjoy but the show must have run out of interesting, intelligent players. I feel Jake's decision for Vienna is strictly physical since I cannot see anything to admire about that girl; or he might have enjoyed the power of choosing her despite the fact no one else can stand her just to show he could. Or maybe had to pick someone not as good looking as he thinks he is. I didn't see anything lovable and caring about Jake's personality and don't think I ever heard him say anything about have a family – maybe I missed it- so I think they will have some hot fun and it will all be over sooner than later. Hope I'm wrong.

    No one knows Vienna but Jake and Vienna's family. The man "grew a pair" and kicked to the curb every beautiful woman on the show who he felt did not connect with him in the way he truly needed. I understood his choice. It isn't simply lust. Love isn't about finding the person who is good on paper; nor is it about finding someone who fits a certain mold. Some women prefer Edward Norton and some prefer George Clooney. To call Vienna cruel names or discredit her publicly makes an individual just as immature and malicious as they accuse Vienna of being.

    Jake made the right decision according to how he felt. Love is about how you feel about a person and whatever attracts you to that person. And indeed its very personal! It is obvious that Jake was attracted to Vienna and his heart fell for her. You can't help who you fall for. I commend him for choosing the one he fell for despite knowing that so many people disliked her.

    Unfortunately Jake has the same problem a lot of women have. Women are attracted to Bad Boys, and Jake is attracted to Bad Girls. I don't see it working and if Jake really wanted a lifetime love and family, he should have chosen Tenley. He needs to learn this lesson and this is the reason he had such bad luck in the past. I guess he still needs to learn, but at what cost? Hope it's before he seals the deal with marriage.

    Arg ! Why do i continue to punish myself by watching this show ?! Its always the same – they say they want to find someone to marry and settle down with but then they choose the person least likely to have that outcome.

    it was obvious when cry-baby Jake had to lean on Vienna at the bungee jump that he is the needy one and she is the strong one.

    i just wish he hadnt dragged poor Tenley to the end – he knew he didnt have that *spark* LOL with her so it was just cruel to lead her on like that.

    And now Ali is going to be the next Bachelorette – yick ! She was so phony and melodramatic ... i guess thats why they picked her...

    This show is resembling the show "Survivor" more and more. It is nothing but a desperate contest. Go out and pick 25 desperate women who have either come from failed relationships or not very lucky with the match-making services and toss in a guy who was a castoff from a previous show who is "genuinely" (yeah right) looking for a life-long partner. Only in America and on our trashy TVs! Hey Jake, are you that much of a loser that you have to have a TV show search for 25 women and arrange your wedding? Bottom line...it's TV. "Here Jake, read this script...go over here....kiss her over there....whisper a few things but not too softly, we need to pick them up with our microphones." The trouble with us dumb Americans is...we are getting inundated with these reality TV shows and believing that they are real. Sorry to burst the bubble folks, but they are all scripted and well planned out for viewer attraction. Every "fight," rejection, tear shed, romantic moment, etc. is purely scripted...and if you don't believe that then you are all fools.

    I loved Vienna from the beginning. Those other girls were just jealous – plain and simple – because they knew she had a special connection with Jake. I have never seen a Bachelor look at a girl with so much love and admiration as Jake does with Vienna. I wish them the all the best. I'm glad he didn't fall victim and let those jealous girls bully him into getting rid of her. Jake & Vienna seem truley happy together. Vienna was just another product of "fine editing" and even with all the edit jobs, I never saw anything that proved she deserved all the hate coming from those girls. Ali is sooooooo fake and sooooooo jealous – it was ridiculous to watch her act so holier than thou. I'm disappointed they chose her to be the next Bachelorette. They had some other girls that would of been much more deserving. Oh well. I hope Ali finds what she's looking for.

    I don't normally watch The Bachelor but this one hooked me from the first show, Jake seems like a great guy with his head on his shoulders but now I'm not so sure, I think he is confusing lust with love. Once that so called spark he was talking about is gone, then what do you have Jake? I understand that he has the right to pick who he wants BUT when you hear a lot of women not liking Vienna, there's something bad there, that's very telling!! I keep thinking that Jake picked Vienna to prove everyone wrong, if that's the case then Jake you do deserve Vienna. I usually don't comment on someone's looks coz we're not all perfect but choosing Vienna out of all those gorgeous women. She looks like Chris Katan in drag.

    I think the reason so many women can not understand why Jake chose Vienna over Tenley is the same reason why probably so many of the same women on here do not have a man. Unless you want boring and bland romance, women need to realize men want excitement. Why do you think so many men cheat on their "perfect" wives with less than "perfect" women many call skanky, like so many on here have called Vienna. Nothing wrong with VIenna. She learned a valuable lesson in life, which some women never get. If you want to land a good man and keep him happy you have to have a "bad" side. I think Tenley needs to let go of some of her reservations and annoyingly polite demeanor if she wants to find a husband who will not cheat on her. No wonder Jake could not feel comfortable with her. She is a robot, and he is human.

    I think that this show should not end with a marriage proposal. I have yet to see an ending where the Bachelor says "I've developed feelings for you, let's see where this goes". Now that's reality. Not getting engaged after 6 weeks. You cannot get to know someone inside and out in such a short period of time. Love is something that needs to be nurtured and that takes years. Not weeks. Time is the true test of love, not passion or lust. It's easy to get into a relationship, but it's much harder to stay in it and making it work.

    This was Jake's choice so he has to live with it. I can tell you as a wife of a pilot Vienna will have a long ways to go. You have to be independent, not controlling and one to do a lot of things on your own. Vienna stated she can't even stand 5 minutes away from Jake. ok honey, prepare for those one week trips or more and you are faced to handle things on your own in addition be trusting as Jake will be in contact with alot of people including flight attendents. Vienna came across as controlling and jealous not traits for marrying a pilot. All relationships start out physical then as time settles the emotional kicks in as you endure alot of things together.

    Wow!! there's ALOT of comments! I think Tenley was a great person, but not perfect for Jake. She's too much of a goody-tooshoes, a bit too sensitive and definitely not over her previous marriage. I think she's open to love again, but not necessarily ready for it just yet.

    I'm a guy, and I can admit this, but it's pretty sad that many guys choose youth/age over personality and emotional connectivity. Vienna is too young and immature. If she were 33 and Jake 41, that would probably work. But she doesn't appear to have a job, other than she wants a family, what goals and achievements does she have in her past as well as expect in her future? I really don't see what she has to offer other than a playmate. Sorry.

    Ali was a good choice, although this whole Bachelorette thing appears to be a setup. She's got a career, she's funny, awesome sense of humor, she speaks her mind but yet tactfully...she knows how to communicate and have a rapport, not only with Jake but with other people. Vienna, come on, imagine how she'll treat her own kids. So Vienna, if your child can't play a sport, are you going to be your brutally honest self and tell him he's a cluts and to stay out of sports?

If anything, she's very young and doesn't appear as confident as she probably will with some experience behind her. Whether the relationship will endure is up in the air. It's rare for the Bachelor/Bachelorette couples to make it, since the whole set up is primarily for entertainment. Who'd watch if the cameras followed a months long, getting-to-know-you relationship?

    The only thing matters is Jake and Vienna are happy together. And if they aren't right for each other, time will show. After all, only one couple from the entire Bachelor history actually got married.

    Ali is cool, but her main focus is herself. She only used her job as an excuse to leave the show, so she can be the next Bachelorette. She probably knew Jake isn't the right guy for her anyways. Otherwise, she would have stayed at the show if she really meant to find a husband. Btw, I really don't like her hair. It's always messy as if she never comb it.

I wish Jake & Vienna all the happiness in the world and it works out for them.

    Maybe Jake will do a "Jason" and ditch Vienna to reunite with his real love: Tenley. But he seems to be dazzled by V so will follow her like a puppy until the physical passion wears off and reality sets in. It will be fun to watch them self-destruct, maybe happening before our eyes when he's on DWTS. Maybe the network already knows its kaput, otherwise why book the newly-in-love guy on another show? Maybe by the time it starts Vienna will already be gone.

Go Vienna, she's a redneck woman, she ain't no high class broad, she's just a product of her raising. . . and Jake found that refreshing and attractive. Opposite's do attract!

    I think it's SO funny that you all act like you KNOW Veinnna. Seriously people, get a life. She did nothing on the show for people to hate her. ABC scripted it in a way to make you think she was this horrible person and she never did anything wrong, but commit herself to Jake while everyone else was sucked into drama. Everyone liked Tenley??? Really?? She NEVER made it through one episode without crying over her ex. She's an emotional train wreck. If the shows not scripted, why did Ali HAVE to leave for her job, yet her job is going to let her spend another 2 months on the show. You're all funny. Just what ABC wants in an audience.

I watched entire show, Vinena is the most intelligent one in the show, she has high EQ, she defended herself in very calm and honest way . we never see anybody like her in previous show. Ali is a bad choice for next show, she has emotional problem, she couldn't make right decision. Hope she could use her brain and the magic spark in coming show , try not to cry a lot....

    I can only judge based on what was displayed on air, and Jake did appear to have more life to him and was happier with Vienna. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he knows who is right for him–who am I to say who is. Wasn't really a fan of Tenley–she kept going on and on about her ex, from the beginning of the show to even the very end. Makes you wonder if she is over the guy or emotionally stable. I thought at some point she would move on and have something else to say, but no.

    As for Ali, definitely think a better bachelorette could be chosen. It was predictable the show was going to select her though.

    I didn't have an opinion on Vienna one way or the other. She seems immature with her "brutal honesty" which is usually a way that people cover up insecurities, their lack of social skills, or inability to think about someone else's feelings ahead of their own. But she could soften with age and outgrow it. I did.

    As far as Ali, I don't know if I can watch an entire season of her. The crying and writhing on the floor of the hotel hallway was a bit much for me. Gia or Tenley would have been better choices.

    Fake Vienna is only concerned with winning the game, not Jake. Now she'll be gloating that she beat out all the other girls. Wait until he comes home after some long flight duty, tired, grumpy, stinky, and just wants to go to sleep. She'll be expecting rose petals on the bed but will get some guy snoring..... The glitz will be gone and the real "reality" show will begin. She will be gone in 60 seconds, not 60 years, when she realizes his world will not revolve around her and there is not camera in front of her to capture her act. Oh, but first she'll cheat with his best friend and take all his money for another boob job.

    If Jake were on Millionaire Matchmaker, she'd tell him his "picker is off" and set him up with someone nice like Ali or Tenley.

    With reflection, it seems Jake used the "you're perfect" card on Tenley. He should know better as he stated repeatedly that has happened to him. Shame on him for that! And if he did believe that "nice guys finish last" then he also set Tenley up for that cliche.' For heavens sake, she had Jake's family loving all over her within minutes. His Dad was so choked up over her that he could barely keep it together. So much for valuing your parents' input. Maybe he'll figure out that Vienna is too much trouble and will go crawling back to Tenley at which time she can say "thanks, but no thanks!"

It was obvious that Tenley won their heart and Vienna, not so much. Did you notice how the dad never had a 1-on-1 with Vienna?!?! She was acting like a little kid when they were all eating lunch and she really showed her true colors when his family asked her whas she thought of Tenley and her response was, "If you like robots". He has made a huge mistake and I hope that Tenley finds someone as level headed as her. She is a sweetheart!

    As I watched the last dates with Tenley and Vienna, Jake did seem more natural and spontaneous with Vienna. They seemed to play and laugh alot with each other – and in this day and age couples need the ability to laugh with each other! Because Vienna is younger I think Jake feels more protective instincts with her even though Tenley had a rough divorce. I think Vienna got a bad rap from the girls in the house, the press, and public opinion. Jake knows her better than the rest of us – I wish them good luck and godspeed.

    This show is so demeaning towards women it is really disturbing (I know I just met him 10 minutes ago, but we are soul mates and I cannot go on living without him..blahblahblah), but I always seem to watch at least some of it. Ali will end up with some dude even more shredded than Jake, and probably one with more cash as well. Vienna will not age well, and once his testosterone levels drop Jake will have lots of time to reflect on what he was thinking when he picked her over some gorgeous and more real competition.

    Wow. Such vitriol. So many people on this page have such hatred for Vienna and believe Jake made a mistake.

    You know what? That means you believe Jake is an idiot, blind, easily duped, a mindless twit with absolutely no skills in personal matters whatsoever.

    Funny. I found him quite thoughtful and caring. I liked Vienna from the beginning because of her honesty and her undying goal of falling in love WITH Jake, together. She's funny, witty, caring (the way she worked with Jake on the bungy jump). She makes him feel loved and absolutely adored.

    If you can't see that, then you're merely bitter because "your candidate" didn't win a contest.

    I think he made the right choice between the final two. That kind of passion can last a lifetime, though it does grow and evolve. Vienna's age could certainly be a problem but hopefully not. When the world attacks you it can do one of two things, break you up or make you stronger. In this case it appears to be the latter. He likes that protective role anyway so all of this controversy probably helped them. He come from a family of strong women as well so it's no surprise that he chose the more opinionated of the final two. As far as Ali, can't stand her. To me she was manipulative, phoney, oportunistic, self centered, and mean. I won't watch that season. I liked Gia. I understand from a producers standpoint why they didn't choose her but there would have been plenty of guy drama with her as the bachlorette. What a catch, beautiful inside and out.

    Has anybody looked at Vienna's facial expressions or body lauguage? I'm not going to say that she looks unhappy, but more like terrified. She's 23, suddenly engaged, moving to Dallas from her small town life, the center of media attention, most being quiet negative... To me she looks doubtful, or that lazt eye of hers is decieving, one or the other.... In any event , if Jake-ie-poo is happy then so be it. Tenley deserved more and actually should have been the next bachelorette. She's way cooler than Ali...

    I would almost bet that most of you who have children you introduced to the fairy tell of Cinderella. No matter who you are, what you look like, believe that you can achieve your dream? I take it the fairy tell is okay as long as it doesn't involve real people?

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Opportunity goes both ways.

    Just because Vienna is not a classic beauty according to media standards today has nothing to do with whether or not she is the "right mate" for Jake. Only Jake can decide what he wants, who he will wake up to every morning and go to sleep next to each night.

    And..... can you truly say that Jake wasn't an opportunist taking his rejection by Jillian to the next level in order to be The Bachelor, himself? Doesn't anyone see the double standards being placed in this blog?

    Personally, I thought Jake would select someone else, even hoped he would. Fortunately for him, it's his choice, his life. May they persevere regardless of what we think.

    Its reality tv.. I betcha ABC told Jake to pick Vienna for ratings of course, Ali leaving bc of work, was really to be the next bacholerette. Jake & Vienna probably have a 1 yr contract to stay together and will get money. Who picks up and leaves across states to move in with a man? a 23 yr old skank with NO job. Maybe she already applied for hooters in Dallas.. and Jake on DWTS , I mean can this get any more ridiculous.. him and Kate Gosselin. Vienna's left eye is crazy, she reminds me of the dude on Mr. Deeds w/Adam Sandler. She probably blew a sausage well that's why he picked her. Did anyone see him kiss all the girls. Not once did he give tongue. He would smile inbetween the kisses.. WTF was that? I dont think Jake knows how to handle any girl period. Vienna meeting the parents was a shocker. She was blunt, made side jokes, and belitted Jake. If he wants a GF that will treat him like that, then good for him. But i guarantee those 2 sister in laws, will be all over her before she has a chance to unpack and move in with him fully..

    He is a fool, she will use him she is so self-center person.

    Congratulations, Jake & Vienna. Best wishes for your life together.
    Although Vienna was not a favorite of ours, there was clearly a sparkling connection between them.
    Tenley is a lovely young woman. Her sweetness and light will surely lead her to a man that deserves, and will reciprocate, all she has to offer.
    We are not thrilled with the selection of Ali for the next BEtte, but will probably watch and grow to appreciate her. We had hoped Tenley would be given the opportunity.
    I think when we got to see Vienna let her guard down, the depth of her desire to be with Jake was very clear.
    Chris Harrison, as usual, was an excellent host and guide this season. His genuine concern and affinity for the contestants is of real value. For whatever it's worth, my guy theorizes that the missing puzzle piece for Jake with Tenley may be due to some "inexperience" in sensual matters. She is a beautiful girl and very appealling. Perhaps she just didn't sizzle as much in the bedroom as Vienna. (This might explain part of the problem in her first marriage...especially if both parties were very young and she was a virgin. Some men want a Madonna-whore and can't handle the reality of a sweet woman saving herself for her husband.) This is in NO WAY bashing Tenley. It just may be a factor for her. There are plenty of men who would see this as a quality rather than a detraction. I'd welcome her into my family without question. She's be wonderful.

    I normally don't watch TV beacuse I do live in the real world (married, work full time, have two small children) but I somehow got sucked into the last 4 episodes. I don't know, maybe I needed a good laugh and some stress reduction. This is a television show and I really wish all of these networks would stop using the term 'reality' because it is far from it. This is a way for one person to meet a group of hungry for love OR hungry for fame people in a game show setting. The competition among the contestants, the fast timeframe, the over-the-top romantic settings, all lead to an intenseness and pressure that creates a scenario where good decision making goes out the window. I think everyone should back off Vienna. None of us really know her. We only know what the network choose to show us. I think this show (and the Bachlorette) is a horrible forum for 'true love' and their track record proves it. But, as long as saps like us, including me, watch it, they will keep putting the same cast of characters up there for us all to gawk at. Personally, I think if you choose to go on this show, or any 'reality tv' show, you need to be prepared to be shredded to pieces by your fellow cast members and the public in general. As for Jake and Vienna, I hope they do find happiness, with each other or otherwise. Time to get back into the real world. Oh wait, Jake is going on the other 'hot and sexy reality show' , Dancing with the Stars. So much for settling in and getting aquainted with your new mate.

    I watch this show because I enjoy watching my wife watching it. She really gets into it, just as I used to get into Professional Wrestling - when I was about eight. The things the bachelors and bachelorettes say are so repetitive, especially when they are agonizing about whom to choose and discussing being in love with two people at once, that I know the scripts must be written by some sleazy producer, although not the one who was fooling around with Rozlyn since he was too busy. Finally, most of the "contestants" are not interested in acquiring life partners but rather they are seeking an entree into celebrity status.

    People keep commenting about this being Jake and Vienna's "Personal Life". When you go on a television show to find a spouse, your personal life is no longer yours. It is obvious that he chose sleazy over sweat and why he made that decision. I'll bet they dont' last two months. I can't wait until the tabloids start speculating about him and his DWTS partner. That will send the Vienna Sausage over the edge.

    I think Ali was a poor choice. Her bravado on the Bachelor was clearly done on purpose. She thought it would either lead her to being picked by Jake because he would end up being devastated by her sudden departure (didnt happen) or she would make such a scene to become "memorable" that she would be the next Bachelor and it worked.

    Vienna consistently focused on making Jake feel special. She never criticized the other contestants. Regardless of how the show or the tabloids painted her, you cannot change the fact that she treated Jake very well. That counts for a lot. It may be a hard pill for some of you to swallow, but even in our "enlightened" modern society, men actually still like it when women are kind and affectionate toward them. Vienna knows how to treat a man. That probably is not sitting well with many women viewers, but guess what. . . Men don't like cattiness and pressure. Vienna, at a very young age, has broken the code when it comes to men. Give the couple a chance. They clearly want to be together.

    To everyone questioning why we care: You realize we are discussing a "reality" tv show, right? One that is televised on a major network on national television for months, detailing many moments of cast interaction. That's why some people care who Jake chose.

    Ok in my opinion Tenley was his soul mate. Not only was Tenley a really sweet person she's been married before and that experience would of really helped there relationship and helped Jake also. Also another point I've been dying to make Vienna is younger then Jake which is not a problem I think she makes him feel younger and thats why he didn't feel that spark with Tenley. Also last night when Chris asked Vienna what there plans were she said she was moving immediately to Texas OMG do you not have a life how is it you can drop everything and move like seriously. I commend Ali for making the choice she made with the unemployment rate as it is in this country keeping your job is a big deal. Now with her being the new Bachelorette I don't know about the job situation but I guess well find out. I think also Jake picked Vienna because it was a kind of manupulation thing he knew he couldn't manupulate Tenley because she has been there and done that but with Vienna she's young she hasn't even lived life yet. And as some of you stated he's a pilot and she'll cheat and he'll wish he would of picked someone more stable that will truly be waiting for him when he comes home from those long lonely flights!!!!

    Chemistry cannot be explained people. It just IS. For the rest of us who inherently feel the need to criticize these two, just let them be. Honestly, who are we to judge? Just because Vienna doesn't fit the 'norm', it doesn't make her a bad person. Agreed, she's youthful and full of life, what 23 year old isn't? Being catty and talking trash is not her style, and I for one commend her for staying true to herself and going after what she wanted. I really do wish them both an abundance of happiness for years to come.

    You would think after meeting Jake's family that Tenley was the obvious choice. Jake's family took to Tenley like she was one of their own, like she was family to them the moment they saw her. With Vienna it was abrasive if not a little confrontational. I dont know what Jake sees in Vienna other than what we saw on TV but Tenley would have made a better match for Jake and a wife too. There might be some confrontations between Vienna and Jake's family coming just because of how she is and how she was around his family. Will see what happens. Best of luck to you Tenley, you deserve nothing but the best.

Along with the rest of the fans, we think it will play out and end. Jake was a pretty strong decision maker, albeit emotional too. When he realizes his mistake, he will cut the cord and Vienna will get some kind of reality show gig or something. Do you believe he is going to be on DWTS!

She couldn't stay on the show 3 more weeks for Jake yet she can miss work for 3 months now. Come on! The first date Ali and Jake had, I thought she was wonderful for him. But then, with Vienna, the claws come out and we see a whole new side of Ali. She can be mean and manipulative. I think Ali is a fake and I won't be watching her on the next Bachelorette.

Tenley was a little "too perfect" and could anyone take that squeaky voice for the rest of their life? And Ali was the worst! She kept all the drama going and tried constantly to turn the other girls against Vienna. The one who really stood out for me as far as the whole package, class, beauty, maturity, was Ella.

    I've heard a good way to create a bond with a woman is to do something intense or scary together – like BUNGY JUMPING. There is some type of chemical/psychological thing that takes place that binds the two people. I think that's what's happened here – and it could bite old Jakey in the hind quarters should it fade. Best idea would be to invest in some bungy-packages [jump ten times, get one free] to keep things going. Either way, doesn't effect my life in the least.

    I definitely feel that Jake made the wrong decision. He went with his mind and lower half rather than sticking with his heart. The physical "heat" will eventually die and there is no substance to Vienna. It seemed as though, from the start, Vienna was more interested in "winning the prize" and being competitive, than truly falling in love. Jake is blinded by this physical attraction, a mistake he already admitted that he made in the past. I have lost all respect for him and this goes to show that most men get wrapped up in the physical component. Tenley and Jake had an amazing connection and I really hope that Vienna and Jake don't last.

    Folks.....I've said it before ...this is TV!! IT's all fabricated to make a splash and get viewers interested. And obviously by these posts, it has worked. Jake is a bonified moron. Let's recap. He appears TWICE on these bachelor shows "looking of love." Man, if you've got to be set up on a TV show to find a lifelong mate, you are indeed quite the loser. He's a "pilot" looking for an inroad to acting. Did you ever see any of the out–takes from the show. All of those "private" moments (private of course with the cameras shooting from various angles and the sound crew all over them). All the retakes, flubbing their lines, etc. It is pure TV. Getting married? Are you all fools? They will keep up the image of being an engaged couple for a brief time until they are out of the spot light., after which, they will dissolve the hoax and go their seperate ways to other TV opportunities.

    Jake is the one who has to live with his choice. Really could you stand to hear Tenley's voice day after day. Oh Jake you make my heart smile, oh Jake you make my heart happy on and on. She was just not that IN to him. Yes she kissed him but she was not comfortable with contact. where as Vienna couldn't keep her hands off him. It might come across as trashy but guys or gals like to feel that you are so in love with them that you can't stand to be away from them for a minute, and that is what Vienna made Jake feel. All Tenley wanted to do was analyze everything. Guys don't like that. I'm not saying it will work, but out of the two I think he made the right choice.

    You are either the dumbest MF'er on the planet or have yet learned how to separate your brains when having to make critical choices. You not only went with the wrong brain, but yet chose a child. As a retired military aviator, I could not begin to tell you how many relationships yours mirrors and just how they have a tendancy to end. That being said I hold your parents accountable for not pointing this out. Good job MOM......not!

    Too bad Jake is a pilot and not a psychologist. He might have realized that Vienna is most likely a sociopath. The way she turned around Jake's family was very typical of sociopathic behavior.

    I think he made the wrong choice, and I totally agree with OMG's comment that he is more "in heat" than he is "in love". And no, my opinion is not based on all the tabloid crap, which is most likely untrue. I believe, based on what I saw on the show, that he and Tenley would have had a much more lasting love, whereas I think the "heat" he has with Vienna will burn itself out after a few years, if that, and then he will be alone again... All that being said, I do hope that I'm wrong and that they have a long, happy life together. We'll see!

    I think Ali was a good choice. She has a great personality and a very broad appeal.

    Billy Smith....Vienna is very beautiful??? Dude, it's obvious you set the bar quite low in the looks category. In fact, your bar is scraping the ground. Jake was all over her when she waltzes around in her bikini. Duh. How long do you think that attraction will last? She is a very shallow, daddy's girl who's been spoiled and sheltered from reality. Jake has shown himself to be a pansy looking for a good time on those infrequent stops at home between flying around to other cities woith his job. Last season for me. This show has lost its "entertainment" value.

    I must say, that I feel Jake is going to wake up one morning look across the bed and realize that the woman across from him is not Tenley and that will scare the living hell out of him. He was an honorable man all throughout the show, up until he decided that boobs were what he was most attracted to and not heart. Even his family prefered Tenley over whats her face. You need that emotional chemistry MORE. I am a married man and I can tell you that I love my wife, and I feel our emotional connection more, but at the same time, feel our physical attraction grow every day. I feel in love with her heart first. Jake messed up. BIG TIME. Tenley, you can do better, you will do better. You are still a wonderful woman with a great big heart to give.

    Oh man Jake, you messed up buddy. He said it all in his remarks. "I always pick girls that are wrong for marriage." Tenley was an amazing girl. She's the one you marry, raise kids and grow old with. Vienna is the type you "play around" with for a few months and run away from because she is a mental case waiting for it's paper work.

    I think Jake was just trying to prove to everyone that Vienna is more than what they saw in her, instead of focusing on what he really saw in her "long-term" after playtime lost it's "spark".

    Not much more to add but it was just all so disappointing that I can't resist. It just seemed strange that a man who said all season long that he was looking for a wife and a mother to his children chose a woman who is so immature that she should not have kids anytime soon. It's hard for me to see what they have in common (especially with the 9 year age difference)...additionally, I would NEVER let her watch my kids or anywhere near my family. Look at how much she values marriage with her 3 week fling? I'm sorry, but you just can't fix crazy and she will always be nuts and now he has to deal with it. Just gross.

    Everyone is waiting for this relationship to go belly up but I think opposites attract and that's the reason Jake likes Vienna. She gives him what he lacks; Spice. He gets to be the charming sincere nice guy while she gets to create excitement in his life. And the fact that she is ugly dosen't surprise me either. It seems like some of the cutest guys go after the ugly girl but I think this is because they have not always been considered cute. So they are just glad to be able to get girls when at one point they couldn't. Jake will definitely have his hands full but that's the way he likes it. Just like Jason from the previous bachelor said Molly keeps him on his toes and that's why he like her more than Melissa. This is why good girls go after bad guys and good guys go after bad girls. It puts excitement in their lives and allows them to experience the things that they were told that they shouldn't do. All that said I too am disappointed in the outcome because it reinforces the old saying that nice guys(or girls) finish last. Why can't the nice guy get the nice girl or visa versa.

    PS. And now he's going to be on dances with the stars; that's just great. I have to keep being reminded that nice girls never win the cute good guys.

    I personally feel Vienna has no class (like Jake's sister in law said) and lacks the maturity to be involved in a serious relationship. I noticed too the comment she said "this is the life I want". She was also catty when his family referred to Tinley, she said "I'm not a robot." She's quite the manipulator. While I agree you need that spark, I feel the only thing they have going for them is lust. There is nothing attractive about her at all....inside nor out. I was also curious about Jake's Dad not talking to her one on one. I don't think he likes her. I give this relationship a year at best after all the trips and media goes away and they have to deal with reality. There is a reason the girls in the house didn't like her and it has nothing to do with her strength and confidence .

    Not to mention how ugly on the inside she came off in this past season with the distasteful way she chose to talk about Vienna every time she was on air. The Bachelorette is usually one of those chicks that is beautiful and kind, has it all going for her... I do not think Ally fits that role at all. The show made a BIG mistake casting Ally in my opinion.

You'll have to admit Jake and Vienna make the best couple. They have my best wishes. Lastly, I didn't like many of the other girls, and evidently neither did Jake. Good job, Jake.

    Vienna was not my first choice, but who are we to judge both Jake and Vienna on their love (or lust) for each other. Yes, Vienna looks like a cross-eyed man in drag, but Jake likes that and we have to respect his feelings. The cameras are off and now they have to face the 'real' life of love. I would love to see how Jake's mother and Vienna's father get along. Now that should be a spin-off show.

    And good luck to Ali. I hope she can finally decide weather it's love or work that will bring her happiness.

    Didn't Trista meet Ryan before he went on the show? My point being that chances of finding someone among 25 producer-picked options is astronomically slim. I had read something way back that maybe Trista told him to go on the show or something. Anyone remember that?

    Producers pick what may look good on television. There has to be something "on paper" that may appeal to the bachelor/ette but, in the scheme of things, what are the chances of finding your soul mate on a scripted public display from 'contestants" chosen for the on-screen appeal..

    You get to see the depth of some people on the show and the lack of in others. And I am sure some know when to say the "right" thing. These shows, although they can be entertaining (such as the episode where Jake was recapping his conversation with the one who wanted to kiss him but didn't want to kiss him but wanted him to want to kiss her - that was funny), are not much improved from Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire. Overall disastrous results.

Yes Jake, it is true love at last! The lifestyle Vienna always wanted – you are an added bonus. By the way, that promise ring Vienna had – promising her father not to elope AGAIN.

What "real" guy looks for his wife on a TV show with cameras and microphones recording every move, every whisper, every touch? Do you know how many times the director yelled "CUT, we need to run that one again. C'mon Jake, try to look seriuos when you tell her she's amazing for the 20th time." With regard to Vienna...take it from a guy.....she is not a beautiful woman by any means, she comes across as immature, insecure, and nothing more than a hotel one-nighter. OK, maybe two nights. Jake is a weepy wimp in heat who chose someone to "play" with. It would probably work if they continued to go on dates every other day, but living together and having to put up with her on a daily basis? Yikes!

    So Jake likes fugly and psycho!!!!! Vienna's true colors and nature have been revealed in the tabloids. She stole her soldier husband's money for a boob job, worked at Hooters, is only 23 and has already been married and engaged, and for someone who really has high opinion of herself, she doesn't have the goods to back it up. I hope the media does not reward bad behavior and bad choices by giving her a job on TV- that's what she wants, we all know it. I know you can't help who you fall in love with, but her 'checkered past' would have been good enough reason to let her go. He could have done what Brad did-not choose either.

Granted, who wouldn't want to travel all the time Life is too short and her 15 minutes will be up real quick. The life a pilot's wife is not all glitz and glammor, trust me.

    I am so wondering if this entire thing was a set-up. First, I knew who he was going to pick weeks ago since it's already been revealed online, but it is obvious Vienna just wanted to win. She has already been married AND engaged and does not take marriage or relationships seriously-that is obvious. "Daddy's little girl" is a conniving, spoiled woman and I seriously doubt these two are going to last. I can guarantee this won't be the last we see of Vienna-she got her chance at fame and that's all she wanted. Tenley, it is obvious she is not over her ex since she cries every time she talks about her marriage and him- she needs more life experience and though I truly believe she was in love and there for Jake, she needs to be on her own for a little bit. And Ali the next Bachelorette??? Come on,, what about her job? Huh? This is all scripted and planned-what a joke.

    They are perfect for each other! If you watch back on the last Bachelorette you will see his style is perfect for Vienna! Vienna is madly in love with him and they are true soul mates! I think they are the best match of all the girls. I think Vienna is a match for Jake's family too. They family was so hard on Vienna at first as she is so brutally honest; she is what you see and she did not come across mean to the girls of the house. On the other hand Ali insited discord constantly in the house with the girls against Vienna; I do not like Ali and I feel sorry for the family that she marries in to. Ali insited the girls that were vulnerable like Tenley in a negative way. Ali has a cute smile and she sort appeared reserved around Jake so she gets the show!
    I will be hard pressed to watch it! Gia would have been a better choice as she was great in the house (has a unusual family, not her fault) and she has a nice disposition. The babe could be played down as she is great without the babe look! The show surprises us all!!!

    What a waste of time this season was. The best part was seeing jakes "baby" skank outed in the the tabloids. Wish we could have seen his mothers reaction to THAT...lol

    Hopefully ABC will realize that promting these two losers in the future will be a ratings dropper. They do not deserve any more time in the public eye.

    Oh wait a minute.they already goofed. He's going to be on DWTS........

    But there is a light at the end of the tunnell!! There will be a Pussycat Doll in the cast....the television audience can watch him "fall" for another woman again – and even better we can see vienna lose her man on national TV!!

    This time I say he picks Nicole!!

    Well, all hope is not lost, as the Bachelor has such an outstanding track record with couples that actually stay together. Give it 60 days, not the 60 years Jake was talking about in the show.

    What the H?? To pick the most hated girl on the show and let your male member make your mind up? It will never last, never does when they can't pick a date. She will miss her poor daddy.
    As for Ali – why didn't Chris ask her the question everyone wants to know...what about your job you left Jake for? Did you quit it now? If she is so smart, she would have figured out she would have had to leave her job anyway to go to Dallas with jake anyway if he would have picked her in the end!!!!

    They deserve each other. She's a trashy lowlife (already been divorced at 23, been a topless model, and got a boobjob from her Marine husbands money while he was overseas), and he's a total moron who clearly has no idea what he is doing and there is nothing going on upstairs with him.

    Let them have their "moment"; they won't be together a year from now.

    Wow Carolyn! You are right! Who are we to judge whether or not Jake picked the right person for himself? Plus, ABC and the tabloids painted Vienna as the evil one from the beginning so you could keep on loving Tenley and, ultimately, be disappointed that he didn't pick her in the end. No matter who Vienna really is, Jake feels she is the right person for him.

    Jake made the RIGHT choice. Although Tenley was "sweet", she was was also very robotic. And if I had to hear about her ex one more time! Wow! Tenley was a goody two shoes to a fault. I started watching the Bachelor when it was down to about six girls. At first I liked Ali, and then when I witnessed the terrible jealousy and cattyness, I was so impressed that Jake did not take the wimpy way out and made the decision for himself. What women don't like about Vienna is her strong and confident demeanor and of course she is naturally beautiful inside and out. The girls in the house were clearly insecure and jealous and you could tell that in their actions. I thought the girls were mean and vicious and finally Ali had the guts to admit it and apologize for it. Jake is happy and that's all that matters. I can't believe that the crazy media in this country is allowed to lie and smear someone's good name with no accountability. I am so glad that Vienna and Jake found their soulmates in each other. Good for them!!!! GREAT CHOICE JAKE!

She doesn't get along with other women and that will come back to haunt them as well. His decision is going to blow up in his face .

    What jake saw in Vienna that he couldn't say he saw in Tenley is T*Ts.
    Pure and simple, Vienna is a very touchy and feely person which Jakes likes. But once he gets past her body there won't be much to embrace in the future....

    Vienna is a girl you can have fun with but Tenley is a girl every man would love to sweep off her feet and knows she will always be there for him through thick and thin. She wears her heart on her selve but I have always thought she was beautiful more than most of the girls.

  335. A Heterosexual Man's View

    Vienna was the only "contestant" that didn't seem like a self-absorbed fake. She was direct, honest, and unfiltered. The other women were catty and hateful simply because they were jealous and intimidated by her confidence and presence. It was fairly obvious from early in the season that she was the one to beat, the one that would "win." Tenley was easy on the eyes and sweet but had all the excitement of a freeway overpass. Alli was BY FAR the least likeable person on the show. Every word out of her mouth was either solipsistic or negative. The quintessential poor loser. Not pleasant, not interesting, not attractive. I have no interest in seeing her ever again.

    This was a blessing for Tenley who truly deserves a man that loves her for being an amazing sweetheart and I wish her the highest success in finding true love with her soulmate in life. It was clear during the reunions with Jake's family who the true winner of their heart was. Anyone noticed why his dad never bothered to have a 1-on-1 with Vienna?

    I remember Jake mentioning before the final rose how you always seem to pick a woman physical over emotional and the relationship doesn't last. This was your golden opportunity to show the world how you were going to turn around yourself from being a man to becoming a gentleman...I wish you the very best man! Enjoy the heat of the summer before winter arrives...

    If Jake wants to be a superficial man in his choices, then he really did pick himself a winner. If I had or knew of a sweet girl like Tenley, then I wouldn't want Jake to be her companion anyway.

    I think Jake made a big mistake. She just wants her 15 minutes of fame. If there was something missing in Tenley, why did he string her along? Why was it such a "gut wrenching" decision for him. Does he not remember he was the one on the Bachlorette who complained about the other guy all the time? He should have let both of them go, because I think Ali was the girl for him.

Vienna will roam again. I think Tenley will find true love in the next year, her heart is open now. And it looks like Ali will find her prince next year as well.

I have watched every Bachelor/Bachelorette show and this one disappointed me. That "spark" he was talking about with Vienna is called "I can't wait until all this is over and get to the hotel" (Lust) where Tenley would have given him love.

Like all the other couples that end up together on this show the whole world is going to watch Jake and Vienna fall to pieces not to long down the road just like the rest of them do...It is going to be a matter of time once all this lavish dating stops and reality sets in to Vienna that Jake is just another guy...She will end up leaving him and realize that it was the glitz and glamor not love which attracted her to him...CAN WE SAY LUST between the two of them not LOVE!!!!
