Say it Ain't So
The bachelor disappoints us all and chooses Vienna
As predicted, Jake chose Vienna.
I’m completely speechless… but I can still type, so bear with me as I get this off my chest.
Vienna had to be one of the worst options for Jake on the show, but keeping with Bachelor tradition, he proposed to her. Like a bug drawn to a zapper, he just locked onto this girl and it blinded him to everything else.
Her maturity level and place in life couldn't be more different than his. Physically, she of course struck a chord with him. He told Tenley that his pattern in life is to look for physical chemistry and then emotional—well, he found that with Vienna and I don't think any of us will be surprised if it ends the way all his past relationships have.
What really kills me in all this is that he let Tenley go. I think he just got stuck on trying to find her faults. At one point he admitted this and said, "There's got to be something wrong with this girl, she can't be that perfect."
Wait. Rewind that.
Isn't that the same thing Jake said women say about him? That he's "too perfect"? Isn't that the reason Jillian let him go? You'd think he of all men would understand the curse of "too much perfect." (Did I really just type that?)
The break-up scene was horrible (though I don't think she vomited). He said he just couldn't figure out what it was about her that didn't work, that he couldn't be himself. Well, in my experience, that's a natural occurence in relationships as new as theirs. But all that aside, he feels natural with Vienna?
I don't understand it and should probably stop trying. Reality TV is what it is and apparently, relationship guru, it is not.
