I am an avid “The Bachelor” fan. I have watched every single season since the very beginning. Why does it appeal to me? I have no idea, but it seems to entertain me and it keeps me out of trouble.
Last night’s “The Bachelor” included a bickering fest between last season’s couple – Jake and Vienna. When Deanna Pappas was the the bachelorette a couple of years ago, Jake was one of the bachelors. He seemed like such a nice, caring guy. He cried. Oh how he cried! America fell in love with the sweet, tender and emotional Jake. He seemed genuine enough last season when he was the bachelor. He chose Vienna, the underdog, to be his partner, and they really did seem to be in love. Vienna showed up each time Jake was on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and it seemed like everything was peachy keen.
Jake and Vienna recently broke up, and last night they “talked” about it on “The Bachelor”. I was a little stunned at what an outright A$$ he was. He continuously bashed Vienna and told her to stop talking, stop interrupting and even told Chris Harrison, “See, this is what she does”. Jake came across as callous, pompous, evil and downright psycho. Yes, Vienna babbled a bit but at least she showed emotion! This looks like a serious case of emotional abuse to me, and it seems as if he has worn her down. Apparently she cannot do anything right, and I doubt anyone can live up to his so-called standards.
Granted, the way they started their relationship is in no way traditional, but does that mean he can be such a jerk to her? He strikes me as Jekyll & Hyde, and that’s not a good feature in anyone. He had absolutely no emotion on his face, or in his words. That strikes me as odd since he appeared to be a big ball of emotions previously. What gives Jake?
Vienna was never my first choice for him, but I certainly wouldn’t wish this treatment on her or anyone. He is a jerk, liar and pretty pathetic in my book.
What are your thoughts on their situation and the ‘discussion’ on “The Bachelor” last night?
