Bye Bye Best Friend

While some of you may be hoping to find some juicy commentary on last nights hot tub romp in New Zealand, I'm sorry to disappoint, but this is a family blog, and what happened on ABC last night was anything but PG rated. Although, I will admit I was laughing and squirming the entire time. I mean what was up with the dramatic latin soap opera music? And how about when she...okay, okay, enough! So, I guess it pretty much goes without saying that last night was a sad night for me. As our beloved Bachelor, Jason Mesnick, said goodbye to my favorite eligible bachelorette, Miss Jillian, the adorable 29 year old Canadian Interior Designer, a part of me died. Okay, maybe that's a bit dramatic, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't devastated to see her go. She was my favorite from the start. However, during Monday night's episode it became painfully obvious to me that Jillian had somehow missed the marriage mark and become the unlikely "Best Friend." I think I liked her so much because I connected with her on so many levels. First of all, she's an Interior Designer and so am I. She's Canadian and I served my mission to Canada. And third, she's been sorely unlucky in love, and well, yah, enough said. Of course I also loved her for her fashion sense, her big heart, and that teensy tiny waistline we all coveted. But at the end of the day, if Jason wasn't in love with her, then what can you do? I think she's one stellar woman and will find love soon...like on next season's The Bachelorette! Wouldn't that be amazing? As for Jason, I think he and Melissa will be very happy together. Sorry Molly, you didn't really think he was gonna pick you just cuz he thinks you have pretty eyes did you? Oh you did? That's so sweet. Oh and Jason, good luck next week! You're gonna need it when you face all those ferocious women again on The Bachelor: The Women Tell All. I can't wait.

I come to your blog first thing in the morning after I have fed the two girls and they are in front of Sesame Street. I love to read your juice, thoughts and comments. I too cried a bit last night as he didn't give Sweet Jillian a rose. My heart ached and then when she proceeded to talk to him on the bench, OHhh my heart hurt. TEAM MELISSA!

Marcy said...

Poor, poor Jillian! But first I have to say, PG my butt! What was up with that? We've never been privy to a makeout session THAT long before. lol...Aaron and I were squirming too, if it makes you feel any better. :)

Poor Jillian. How gorgeous did she look last night? Yellow shoes and all. Sigh. I guess I'm jumping ship to Melissa. I can learn to love her. At least I think I can. I have two weeks to gear up for it.

And what is the deal with the teasers each week about Deanna! Seriously she doesn't come back until the final two?! She should have come and gone weeks ago! And Chris and his drama about what's happening next week. It was all a little too much for me. I was laughing instead of "into it" as I should be. Bad me.

Kids are eating breakfast so I had to hop on here and see what you had to say about last night...what will we do without your Bachelor blog posts in a few weeks??!! We will have to move onto a new show! Anyway, yes the nasty porno music was terrible...I felt so embarassed and I was watching by myself! The spoilers from day one said Melissa was picked so I don't know why anyone is suprised :) I'm sure the drama with Chris Harrison has to do with Melissa's parents being on the show and being "blacked out" or something like that. Anyway, I love her and can't wait for the cat fights next week! Molly's eye makeup is so gross if you ask me, I can't see her pretty eyes because of the weird eye makeup! Miss you sweetie!

Okay, I SOOOO wish we lived closer so we could have a bachelor party! I literally gasped when he picked Melissa first and again when he DIDN'T pick Jillian!? WHAT THE HECK!? She was the only girl that "challeneged" him and look where it got her. Psh....

I agree with you- she was my fav. *sigh* oh well

Can we talk about Chris and the "intimate setting" because of the "parties involved." If that doesn't tell you what happens, I don't know what does.

I was pissed. I'm not going to lie, and her dress was DARLING last night. She was idiot for not expressing her love before the rose ceremony. As soon as she said it you could see an immediate change in his demeanor. Poor girl.

I can't really root for either of the last two. (p.s. Can we talk about Melissa's annoying laugh?)

There it is!

Ummmm... what about the part where something happened that has never happened before in Bachelor history (even thou Chris tends to be dramatic in every preview) and was too sensitive to have a studio audience for the women tell all that it was done in private??! I'm thinking Deanna comes back only to warn him not to make the same mistake that she did - not to get him back. He obviously would never take her back and I'm going to hope she doesnt decide to be a home wrecker. And that after pondering Jillians perfect reasons and comebacks upon her departure that he realizes he made a mistake and chooses her for his wife. I mean he was standing there for like 10 minutes crying when she left! So there is still hope for those Jillian fans out there. But just in case that doesnt happen as I plan - Melissa did win me over with her knock knock joke. That was funny.

I like what anonymous says. Maybe that is true. It sounds good to me. Anyway, I loved this post, the title, the commentary, the support of Jillian. You are fab!!!

Kim said...

Booo!!! That's all I can say for bachelor Jason! Don't like what he did, don't like who he picked, and don't like his horrible make-out sessions on my T.V.
I'm done - don't think I'll be back!
Negative Nancy...:(

As soon as he said Melissa reminded him of his ex and Deanna I knew it was over. Psychologically he can't take failure and will keep trying with the same type of woman until he succeeds.

IzeOfLight said...

You know how much I love Jillian, so I was sad to see her go (especially over Molly? MOLLY?!). But I've been feeling for a while that he's been into Melissa this whole time. Can't wait for the next two weeks and extra specials (and your day-after commentary, of course!).

Bracken and Bracken said...

You're hilarious!! I love how you incorporated the line from "She's all that" so great :) And Melissa is totally winning!!

wild woods said...

Aubs,
Funny thing last night Brady actually truned The Bachelor on... yes I know I couldn't beleve it myself but it made me think of you!! Sorry your girl got sent home :(

shan said...

okay, after reading annonymous comments, i agree! I think the DeAnna girl comes back to say "DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE!"

Hmmmm! Very insightfull!

Drew+Elise said...

OKay WHAT THE HECK Aubrey. Can we somehow plot to get Jillian back... ?! I cried for SURE. I screamed in terror when he said "Molly". Okay we all know he is madly in love with Melissa, but is it really only because she is a mini HIM ???! Goodness. Tell us Jason really what it is about Melissa. It can't be her profound statements because she aint got none! Goodness. Jillian was the only thing going for him.

I do have to admit that she was an idiot for not showing her love & affection for him. UGGH. I'm really mad.

theblibbys said...

I seriously cannot tell you how pissed off I was that he got rid of Jillian. She was BY FAR...the classiest and cutest girl on that show. I adored her. Totally bummed. Melissa is cute, too. She will definitely win. I have no idea what is going to happen with the whole DeAnna thing....can't wait!
PS: We are having a little girl!

i intentionally have strayed away from reading your blog b/c i've been a bit behind on my bachelor watching due to being out of town. damn jason. i thought j & j were perfect for one another...especially w/ the passion they had in the NZ. he can't keep his hands off of melissa though...and at least she will really love him and not be on the show to be daddy's #1. so so sad.
