The Bachelor: Love Takes Flight - 1/4/10

At 31, I do wonder if Jake is both a playboy and a nice guy. In other words, he truly is a sincere nice guy as we see on the show, but when it comes right down to it he loves being a playboy that dates several women at the same time. Wouldn't surprise me a bit if what we see on the show is similar to his real life where he has dated several women concurrently, makes each one feel very special, and truly enjoys being with each one pretty much equally. No faking that he loves all them for who they are, and deep down, if he truly lived out his ultimate LIFE fantasy, he would marry all of them, and they would live a polygamist lifestyle happily ever after. I am not sure he can be happy being married to just one woman because it appears he likes a good variety of different women. Not suggesting he is type to cheat on his future wife, just not sure he can be satisfied\happy with just one, and ONLY one, woman.

I really liked Ali so I was sad to see her go, especially since Jake seemed the most comfortable and affectionate with her on their hometown date.

I totally thought Vienna was like rich and stuff; I was kinda shocked when it showed her house and family. She does seem to have real, genuine feelings for Jake, though, so I feel like they deserve each other.

I think Alli and Tenley(my two favorites) are way too good for Jake and I really, really hope one of them is the next Bachelorette! I'd prefer Tenley but I love Alli, too, and she seems a more likely candidate because of all the drama.

If Ali does not come back this season as part of some Harlequin romance twist, you bet, she is coming back as the next Bachelorette. Very good possibility the last episode was a complete setup for bringing her back as the Bachelorette next season.

Yep.... Ali is being setup for a future Bacheloret. Come'on she decided to go home and they have cameras following her around for a week or longer; why would they be doing that? Then they setup phone call between her and Jake, where Jake more-or-less gives her an official rejection speech of "It's not you, it's me"; very very fishy. This series has a feeling of being scripted.

My best guess is that Venna will be the one he finally picks. I think he values her openness and playfulness. My long term perdiction is that he will not marry whom ever is finally selected (engaged maybe, marry no). Wouldn't surprise me if he truly loves being with these women, but deep down knows he not want to marry any of them.

I'd much rather have Gia as the next bachelorette than Ali. But I never get what I want. I can't stand Ali so it will make me ill if they announce her as the next bachelorette. It does make sense though, since she got that additional plot twist. Just like Jake did after he was eliminated by Jillian.

Well, yuck, but you're probably right. I don't see any reason to pick Alli though. Previous bachelor / ettes have been picked from the rejects, either because they were fan favorites, or somehow it seemed like they were 'wronged' in some way ( Like when what's-his-name picked neither Deanna or that other girl..) But I guess Jake doesn't really fall into either of those categories either. But people did think he was a little too clean cut, too good to be true, sort of guy.

But Alli? To me, she is completely forgettable. She is a terrible actress, and that is exactly what she was doing on the show last night. I bet she practiced for hours on her 'stressed' face. And it ended up looking just like every other pouty face she ever made.

If it's her, I don't know how they will get me to watch. I can't find anything interesting about her, and I certainly don't want to know more.

Do you really think it will be Vienna? Because they seemed to be trying to tell us that, and that usually means they are trying to trick us. Notice how they played the 'On the Wings of Love' song while Jake and Vienna were on the ship. And then they only showed him asking Vienna about what kind of ring she liked.

I do think it seems like he has more fun with her. Maybe he's more himself, instead of 'the Bachelor'. They do other things besides just kiss and talk about how much she is falling in love with him, and how he is falling for her, and...ah... for 2 other women....

I don't think he will propose to either, and I also thinks he lays on the 'I'm falling for 4...3..2... women' thing a bit thick. I understand he can't let us know who he is leaning towards, but if he's really not leaning towards anyone at this point, well, then what's the point?

I agree Marty!

She is a terrible actress, and that is exactly what she was doing on the show last night. I bet she practiced for hours on her 'stressed' face. And it ended up looking just like every other pouty face she ever made.

I noticed this too... and that she had no tears during that phone call and even when they edited in the interview after she was rejected... she had disheveled hair, running make-up, red face (to look like she was balling her eyes, imo) but, yet I didn't see her really crying, just the voice and hiding her eyes and running fingers through hair. Total actress, imo.

I was really rooting for Gia until last night and I think he let the right one go. She seems like a really great gal but, I don't think she was into him as much as she wanted to be. I kinda got the impression the more she learned about him the less she liked him... but, she WANTED to like him more. She dreams of a nice guy like Jake but, he doesn't have enough "edge"... if that makes sense.

Tenley is sooo adorable and her story pulls on my heartstrings and I want to root for her but, I don't know if she's really ready yet. I think she may have some more healing to do. She's even more "perfect" than Jake and I for one couldn't be around someone that I felt the pressure to be perfect around 100% of the time. Also, I get the "friends" vibe between them, when they're together.

Vienna is sincerely into Jake and that's refreshing to watch and I think he's use to being the one that fawn's over his partner. It's got to feel good to be getting it back now. BUT, I'm still worried about her maturity level and if she fully understands the commitment (through good and bad times) that a marriage requires.

It kinda looks like he pick neither of the remaining girls... I just hope he doesn't pull Alli back at the end. I'll think all the more of him if he rejects both of them at the end, if he doesn't KNOW that one of them is the girl he wants to propose too. imo, if he's really falling in love with 4 then 3 then 2 girls... then none of them are the ONE.

Now you're scarying me with the idea that there might be yet another Ali twist where she comes back to accept a marriage proposal. That would suggest all the exta Ali drama scenes of the past two weeks were likely shot after the fact so that the show would make sense when she doe come back.

Overall his process of finding his true love comes across as manufactured as if he is taking his time finding the perfect luxury car through a process of test driving them all over several weeks and each week limiting one of the cars from the list. When you find the right person to marry, you know it, and that person clearly stand outs; there is no hair spliting about it. If a person doesn't know it, and is waffling, then he either has not found the right person, or is not ready to get married yet.

And I do wonder what is the show's backup plan is if the Bachelor decides that he does not want to marry any of them. I think Venna is Jakes backup plan, he picks her because she is the least serious about getting married ASAP after the show is over, thus they have some fun (and sex) running around together enjoying the reality TV spot light. And like all the rest from past seasons, they discover they don't want to marry each other. Other than Venna, the women seem like they would be out planning the wedding the very next day after the show is over and the moment he says "Let's wait a while" they freak.

My take, Ali wasn't on the show for Jake. She was on it for herself. She did too much to make sure she'd be noticed by production..like the drama with the girls, then coming back and playing the whole Ed game. I thought she was totally fake, I didn't believe a moment of it. She just wanted to be talked about, in the news, and make sure she had air time.

Skank.

Anyhow ya, wow..I can't believe he sent Gia home. I didn't like her either, thought she was kind of fake, but still I'm surprised.

I like Tennely, but think he's choosing Vienna.

I think he'll pick Vienna. But he won't propose. He'll have a ring, I suppose, but it will be something along the lines of 'I want to pursue this and see where it goes... hopefully to marriage...'

Which is really what they should all do.

Say he did propose to one of them though. If that were you, wouldn't you be really hurt and angry after watching the show, when Jake continually states how he is falling in love with everyone? Even though Jake, ( and other bachelor/ ettes) can say that they had to say those things, contractually. But I still wouldn't buy it. Because it's clear to me, that he is either lying, or he is so far from being ready for a committed relationship, that he has no business asking about rings, talking about marriage, etc... If what he keeps telling us is remotely true, then Jake is not even ready to date exclusively.

There's no way this show is totally unscripted. every show has someone "buying" rings, declaring their "love" for however many people are left, saying they can't decide who should go home. Ugh! Its gotten really old and boring. Time to retire it or make some radical changes. But I'm still watching!

I don't think they'll do many more seasons with fresh faces, if they do any at all, that is. I think it's just easier to get people excited for the show if they already have a connection with the new Bachelor/ette, or at least know who they are. It's like all those "Of love" show on Vh1, after they put the first two out everyone that got one after that came from some other show. (Like New York, Daisy, The Entertainer, etc.)

Don't forget tonight's "The Bachelorettes Tell All" episode. It should be an interesting one. Roslyn will get to deny her relationship with the staffer again. And who knows what that nutter Michelle will say.

Might they announce the next bachelorette tonight?

Michelle fits that to a T!!! lol And Ali is just a drama queen looking to get her 15 minutes!! Tonight is going to be awesome!!!

FYI Lost is the best ever!!!

Nope no announcement yet. Tonight definitely reinforced how much I liked Gia -- boy was my first impression of her wrong - I was sure I would hate her. She is just so genuinely sweet, and of course gorgeous. Rozlyn of course was a tool - she is sticking with the DENY DENY DENY strategy. And she was a real snot to Chris Harrison.

'Bachelor's' Rozlyn Papa in Sex Tape Drama

A new celebrity sex tape is being shopped around the porn community -- and the person peddling the tape says the star is Rozlyn Papa from "The Bachelor."

TMZ has learned the tape is being shopped to a variety of XXX companies all over all over L.A. -- including LiveJasmin.com

We spoke to Kevin Blatt, a rep from the website, who tells us he saw the tape and "it's definitely Rozlyn."

Blatt claims the tape features Rozlyn performing "one sexual act with a well-endowed gentleman."

A rep for Papa tells TMZ the reality star has, "no knowledge of any tape."
