- Wedding: August 2020 - Oakland Manor
I didn’t watch the bachelor (b/c we don’t get it here) but I was so intrigued by all the outrage I’ve been reading about it on the Reality Steve (thanks whoever on beeTV told me) blog. It seems pretty messed up to me 🙁

It’s scripted and he’s a really really bad actor.

I watched last night and was even more convinced the whole thing was scripted. How many times did he need to say "In all honesty" or "I never planned this…" or "we haven’t seen or talked." They are both terrible and deserve each other! Jason has some serious emotional problems. How can you "fall in love" with three people in a year?
That said, of course I will watch the next season : )

Ugh the bachelor always breaks my heart. I couldn’t watch it this season and I’m so glad I didn’t!!

I feel so terrible for Melissa. She is such a cutie pie and seems very nice. I was also impressed by how great she did with Ty. I lost respect for jason. If he was confused, I think he should have just not picked any of them!

I’m a teeny bit embarrassed to admit that the Bachelor is one of my guilty pleasures…
I read Chris Harrison (the host of the show)’s blog on Entertainment Weekly and he implied that Melissa already knew that they were breaking up. It seemed like they were almost contractually obligated to break up on the show, instead of just coming back and saying "hey, we already broke up."
Although, having said that, what I don’t get is how Molly would take him back. If I knew that a guy had dumped me, then got engaged, proceded to dump his fiancee and then wanted to get back together with me…yeah, I would steer clear!
Is anyone else happy that Jillian is going to be the new Bachelorette?

If Melissa didn’t know, it would not otherwise make sense…right? I mean, they went back on the show for After the Final Rose Part I only 6 weeks after the finale. Normally, the After the Final Rose is 12 weeks after the taping of the last show. And, it stands to reason that Molly knew something was up too based on the timing of it all.
Clearly I have thought about this too much!

I’m sure they all knew, it’s just crazy…I guess that’s reality TV for you. I am glad that Jillian is the new Bachelorette, though! I was a little worried that they would pick Stephanie. It seems like everyone just loves the woman and she seems nice and all, but she just creeps me out a little bit.

Lillindy, something about Stephanie creeps me out too. She seems sweet or whatever, but there’s something sort of robotic about her. Maybe too much botox?

Did you guys read this? http://realitysteve.com/blog/ It talks about how it was staged and Jason knew ahead of time.
If it was real, than that is just really sad. I just think if he was going to break up with Melissa and go with Molly there was a more private way to do it. If you remember Prince Lorenzo he chose Jennifer but actually ended up dating Sadie (runner up) later. it just seems like it didn’t have to be all broadcast in the way it was with Jason and Molly.
I’m glad Jillian is the new Bachlorette too. Has anyone auditioned for the show before you got in your current relationship?

Who is this Reality Steve and why am I only hearing about him now?
I could waste entire workdays on his site!
Post # 28
Yeah that is what I posted up above – the whole thing was a set up (supposedly). The story was leaked a bit ago!

I will have to check that reality Steve thing! I was never a big Bachelor fan until the Deanna series somehow, then I became addicted! My friends and I were big fans of Jillians…we all rooted for her. So of course I am totally excited to see her be the bachelorette! I did read too that Melissa already knew they were breaking up (I noticed she didn’t come in with the ring on!) and they were contracted to break up on the show. Though Chris the host there said that part wasn’t true on Good Morning America, so who knows! For money they all will probably do anything! I thought maybe he was going back to Deanna! ha

She had to know SOMETHING was up. They never shoot that After show until 12 weeks out normally, this time it was 6. Normally there is a studio audience, this time there wasn’t. There is no way they didn’t all know something was going on…..

@Jessie516: I agree, I think Botox may be the problem.
@duckling: I did read that, but I guess we’ll never know. I’ve never applied, but it would be so fun if someone on here had!
Did you all watch Melissa, then the Jason/Molly appearances on Ellen?
