What is this thing called love?
Its time to redeem the Texas Bachelor
Finding love seems to happen every week on this show, so he's in luck. The real problem will be finding something that lasts beyond the six-week fairy tale.
So far, not a single bachelor has made it to the altar. In fact, after 13 seasons, only 2 couples remain together. Not very good odds at all.
But Jake is different from the rest.
First of all, he's a pilot. With the economy the way it is, he definitely won't attract women in search of millions.
Second, he's a gentleman. After being booted by Jillian on The Bachelorette, he flew all the way to San Antonio to tell her one of the remaining suitors already had a girlfriend. Talk about chivalry.
Finally, and most importantly, he's a true Texan. Past seasons have not shone well on Texan men. Hands down, Brad Womack was the worst bachelor of all time and, unfortunately, is from Austin, where he owns a bar. But there's a significant difference here — Jake grew up in Texas and Brad only moved here (from Georgia nonetheless) when he was 12. I hear the first 12 years of life are the most formative.
And this makes Jake a truer representation of Texas and the right one to set the record straight. Its a shame he's not from Houston, but we'll overlook that for this season.
