The season’s Bachelor finale was rather uneventful thanks to the leaks and accurate spoilers that found their way online since January.
Jake Pavelka, 32, did what had been heavily reported, by picking Vienna Girardi, a 23-year-old Florida-based marketing representative to be his fiance, over Tenley Molzahn, 25. The couple appeared on the After the Final Rose show, and appeared very much in love. When asked about a wedding date, they revealed they had yet to set one, but Vienna does plan on moving to Texas to be with Jake.
The biggest shocker of the night actually came when Jake was announced to be one of the contestants on Dancing With The Stars.
Ali Fedotowsky,25, was also named as the new Bachelorette, which did not come as a surprise, because this information was also leaked weeks ago. “I’m so excited!” she told host Chris Harrison. “I am so thrilled and honored and grateful. I just can’t believe it.”
For some reason, ABC keeps telling us Ali is a viewer’s favorite, when in fact most viewer comments about Ali have been very negative. Perhaps people will tune in because they love to hate her.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE FINALE? ON ALI BEING THE NEW BACHELORETTE?
Something both women seem to have in common is that they have both been in the tabloids a lot lately. Vienna has received the worst of this, as she has been described as a party girl, a cheater, and accused of stealing $5,000 from her ex-husband’s bank account to pay for her boob job. Plus multiple photos of her have been leaked online.
Tenley’s ex-husband, Ryan Natividad, has also slammed her in a recent interview he gave Star Magazine. The newly remarried undercover cop claims Tenley is not as sweet and innocent as she appears on the show. Ryan claims Tenley was “very controlling, very demanding, and very selfish” during their short lived marriage. “She’s far from the demure and innocent person she pretends to be on The Bachelor,” says Ryan. Tenley had claimed on the show that Ryan cheated on her, something he denies.
Jake Pavelka also gave a new interview to PEOPLE magazine during which he spoke vaguely about his final pick. He however says he hopes the public will understand his pick. “I just hope that everybody understands the decision I made because I’m the one who has to live with it.”
We can however reveal Jake’s final pick and the update on the couple. Do not highlight the next paragraph or read the comments if you don’t want to know who won.
As we have previously revealed, Jake’s final pick is Vienna, and according to RealitySteve.com, the couple recently taped the After the Final Rose reunion,set to air tonight, during which they appeared to still be together and happy.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE FINAL TWO? WHO DO YOU WANT JAKE TO PICK?
If you recall, Jason,33 famously proposed to Melissa, 26, on the Bachelor finale only to then dump her on the reunion show for Molly, 25.
Melissa has however previously said that she is “happy” for the two. The wedding ceremony will reportedly take place at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. Bachelor alums Jillian Harris, Ed Swiderski, Trista and Ryan Sutter are expected to be in attendance.
As for what the wedding will be like? Molly revealed, “We don’t want an hour-long ceremony and assigned seating and fancy food. I’d rather have people walk away saying, ‘That was the most fun, badass wedding I’d ever been to!”
ABC is set to air the wedding as a two-hour special, The Bachelor: Jason and Molly’s Wedding, on March 8.
Things continue to get worse forRozlyn Papa. First she was accused of having an affair with a producer from The Bachelor, and now TMZ is revealing a sex tape of the 29 year old model is being shopped around.
According to TMZ, the tape is currently being shopped to a variety of XXX companies all over all over L.A. Even more damaging, a rep from one of the porn websites claims to have seen the tape and confirms it is indeed Rozlyn on the tape.
Kevin Blatt reveals the tape features Rozlyn performing a sexual act with a well endowed male.
A rep for Rozlyn does not deny the existence of a sex tape, instead telling TMZ Rozlyn has, “no knowledge of any tape.”
The latest is now whether or not her follow Bachelor cast-mates were being honest when they claimed to have witnessed inappropriateness between Rozlyn and Bachelor producer Ryan Callahan.
First contestant JessieSulidis revealed on the Women Tell All show that she saw Rozlyn and Callahan kissing behind a staircase at the Bachelor mansion. Jessie, who sounded very believable, even swore on her dog’s life, but now the bigger question is why did Jessie deny seeing anything inappropriate happen between Rozlyn and the producer just a month ago in an interview she gave to TV Guide? An excerpt is below –
“TVG: Let’s talk about Rozlyn for a second. Were you privy to what some of the other girls saw? Jessie: I didn’t see anything, but I heard that other people might have seen something, but we all got over it and past it pretty quickly. We never really talked about it in the house again after that night.”
Valishia Savage, another one of the women who spoke out against Rozlyn at the reunion show, now says she regrets the things she said. “Still, to this day, I never saw anything that made me think it was a sexual relationship. Never,” Valishia tellsUsWeekly. “And I was the closest to her — I was her roommate! I had the same producer she had come visit me at my house. If anything, he was very forward and flirtatious.”
So why did Valishia claim on the show that she suspected something happened Rozlyn and the producer? According to Valishia, she felt pressured by the Bachelor producers to speak out against her friend. “I kind of felt a little bombarded by producers and people who tried to sway me to that side,” admitted Valishia.
Ellan Nolan is the third woman who claimed to have heard Rozlyn make some inappropriate comments about wanting the producer to come “put her to bed.” Ella also gave an interview to RealityTVWorld just a month ago during which she claimed she did not see anything that would lead her to believe Rozlyn carried on an affair while on the show. An excerpt from this interview is below –
“I really did not see a lot with her and the producer. I saw them being very friendly with each other. I didn’t see anything out of the ordinary. So I have to say no, I wasn’t one of the ones who went to the producers.”
RealitySteve.com is also reporting that the girls who refused to speak out against Rozlyn during the WTA show were “punished” by the producers of the show. For example, Corrie Adamson, who was part of the final 5 and also had an interesting storyline this season because she was a virgin, was only shown for a couple of seconds during the 2 hour show. She was not interviewed, nor did she speak a word during the entire show. Why? Well apparently this was because Corrie refused to speak out against Rozlyn. Kudos to Corrie if this story is true.
The Bachelor host Chris Harrison has also promised to never speak out on the Rozlyn issue again after calling her “desperate” due to some of the comments she made on the WTA show, mainly the one during which she accused the married host of hitting on the wife of the then married producer, Callahan.
TELL US – WITH ALL THIS NEW INFORMATION, DO YOU BELIEVE ROZLYN OR THE OTHER WOMEN?
Rozlyn, 29, during her interview segment with Chris, continued to deny having a physical relationship with the fired producer,Ryan Callahan. However, her fellow bachelorettes wasted no time throwing her under the bus, by revealing that they did see Rozlyn being inappropriate with Callahan.
Jessie said she saw Rozlyn and Callahan making out; another contestant said she saw her touch his thigh one time and Ella said she heard Rozlyn remark that she wanted Callahan to come put her to bed.
Despite the three eye witness accounts, Rozlyn swore on her child’s life that nothing physical happened between she and the producer. Interestingly enough, Jessie also swore on her dog’s life that she did witness a kiss between the two. One can only hope Rozlyn’s son and Jessie’s dog are doing okay.
Chris proceeded to then tell Rozlyn how sad he was that Callahan was fired because many people on the show considered him a friend. Rozlyn then snapped, “That’s news to him, especially when you were hitting on his wife in New Zealand. He thought that was crazy.” Chris replied cooly, “I won’t dignify that with a response. I hope you will become a better person through this.”
Chris tells Entertainment Weekly that the reason he didn’t respond to Rozlyn’s accusation was because “that’s exactly what she would have wanted from me. It was a desperate attempt by a very desperate woman to create a diversion and deflect the spotlight from herself….”
No announcement was made about the next Bachelorette, but as we have reported, Ali Fedotowsky has been chosen to do the show.
TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE ROZLYN? OR DO YOU THINK SHE’S LYING?
Tonight is the somewhat anticipated “Women Tell All” episode of this season’sThe Bachelor, and host Chris Harrison promises it will be explosive.
According to Chris’s new interview with TVGuide.com, all questions about what exactly happened between contestant Rozlyn Papa and Bachelor producer Ryan Callahan will be answered tonight. Rozlyn has always denied anything romantic happened between she and Callahan.
Chris also promises tonight’s show will reveal some “antics” and “desperate attempts to get 15 more minutes of fame” by certain contestants. Jake Pavelka will also get to reunite with the departed Ali, who has been reported to be the next Bachelorette. Chris reveals “feelings are still there.”
Excerpts from Chris’s interview below –
TVGuide.com: What about her[Ali] and Jake’s interaction? Harrison: The first thing he says is, “I can’t believe you left, I fully expected you to just show up in St. Lucia.” What was funny is when I talked to [Ali] privately, she said, “I expected him to just fly to San Francisco and get me.” I think they both were expecting the same thing. It’s just one of those really unfortunate instances, but the feelings are still there.
TVGuide.com: Will Rozlyn tell her side of the story? Harrison: Rozlyn is back in full force as only Rozlyn can be. I got some heat and so did the show for being vague and so I went into the show [and] told everyone we’re going to get the truth out. You will hear from the women explosive new details that you have never heard before, because none of them have ever spoken about it until now. There will be 100 percent no question in anyone’s mind, other than Rozlyn’s, of course. She’s the only one confused about it in that relationship. The funny part, not even the guy involved in the relationship is confused. And when I tell you explosive new details, I mean details. Nothing vague about any of this. Time, place, everything — you will hear it all.
TVGuide.com: So after the special airs, there will be no doubt about what happened? Harrison: It’s not a he-said, she-said thing — everybody knows what happened. It only behooves her to continue this and she’s the only one still talking about this. We are so done with her and her antics and her desperate attempts to get 15 more minutes of fame and that’s what this is about and we don’t care.
The Bachelor’sJake Pavelka has narrowed down his final choices of bachelorettes to the final 2, and according to our Bachelor poll, an overwhelming 81% of you are pulling for TenleyMolzahn to win Jake’s heart.
Another person who seems to be rooting for Tenley is someone all too familiar with the situation. Former BacheloretteJillian Harris reveals to UsWeekly that she is Team Tenley, while her fiance Ed Swiderski is pulling for Vienna.
UsWeeklyinterviewed both Jillian and Ed, during which they shared their thoughts on this season’s Bachelor, and discuss their openness to having a televised wedding.
Us: What are your thoughts on the women on this season’s Bachelor? ES: We had a chance to meet most of the girls, and I still take them at face value, yes I’m biased because I went through the ringer with you guys, but the truth is I read that stuff and I’m like she’s [Vienna’s] a normal person, she really is, yes she’s gone through some weird stuff, she had some fun and whatever she did, but she’s been pretty loyal to Jake as far as we know. JH: The thing is everyone has a past, everyone was young and dumb at one point, everyone was vulnerable at one point, everyone has made mistakes, we all have our skeletons in the closet, and maybe she has more for whatever reason. If he picked her or if he picked any other girl, it doesn’t even — we hope that it will last, but in the grand scheme of things this is supposed to be fun and it’s supposed to be light-hearted and there’s so many more awful things in the world to stress out about. For me I just look at it and am like well she probably shouldn’t have done all the bikini shoots and maybe shouldn’t have signed up for the show but everybody is human and all those girls on the show deserve to find happiness. Not one of them is a vindictive awful bad person.
Us: Having been on the show and talked to Jake, who’s your preference? JH: I’ve always thought Tenley was a good person for [Jake]. ES: They come off as the perfect couple I think because they’re both religious, they’re both praying to end up together. But who knows. Maybe Vienna is a better person than she’s being portrayed. Ali I don’t know, there’s something about her that rubs me the wrong way. She was a bit too sassy for my liking. I think she was cute, a great-looking girl, great personality, intelligent but maybe she was a little too sassy. She left a little too easily I thought. Us: What advice would you give to Jake? JH: It’s so hard because as much as you say hang on tight, don’t listen to what anyone says, lean on your friends and family, it’s hard. ES: It’s got to be like one-on-one get through it together, otherwise you won’t. you can’t just say ignore it, it’ll go away, because it’s not going to go away. You have to learn how to deal with it and either improve your relationship or move on.
