*No Spoilers: This report is safe to read!*
The Bachelorette Finale aired LIVE last night, because as ABC put it, “so that we can bring you the latest news.” Host Chris Harrison got a tad carried away with the ‘live feed’ and acted like it was a CNN breaking report; his awkward shout-out to the victims of the Colorado shooting sounded as phony as ever. Do you really think that the victims’ families cared enough to tune to see if poor Emily Maynard finally found love? Harrison also sounded super silly after Emily made her final decision, “Emily just SHOCKED America.”
Live telecast EVENT? Is this what the show has come to? The romantic connections formed on The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise are so fragile that it needs to be live—just in case anyone should get cold feet, have a change of heart or surprise Emily by giving her his diary? (Yep, the runner up flew to Charlotte after being awarded the Silver metal and planned to confront Emily, but once he got there, realized it seemed nuts, so instead he left his diary at her doorstep. Much saner.
Poor poor guy though! Emily decided to eliminate him before their final date. However, that message didn’t seem to reach the little old island woman was sent to help him create a ‘love potion’ for Emily. The producers made him go through the motion of creating a love potion—how cruel! Ironically, he joked to the woman, “this better work.” Yeah, that potion needed to be some seriously potent s**t to reverse the final decision Emily had come to.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t; but fortunately, he didn’t dramatically drink it himself and pull a ‘Romeo & Juliet’ or anything. The diary, although strange, was appreciated for its non-aggressive tone.
Emily returned it to him on after the final rose and claimed she did not read it.
Do you think she just said that so that—the man she DID pick— doesn’t fear she’ll read his?
Or is Emily simply a woman of integrity?
Check these out too!
