In her latest blog, Jillian Harris talks about her thoughts on last night’s “Men Tell All.” She doesn’t really touch on the whole Wes topic, but does talk about her favorite moments of the season as well as seeing all of her “ex-boyfriends” again as she puts it.
“If I have eliminated someone who you loved, I am sorry … I wish I could have kept every wonderful guy from the show but I am only looking for ONE man to make ME happy. I DO have an excellent judge of character and I do know what I am looking for in a unique individual to go through life with me.
Also, I want to clear up a little confusion about the perception of my “engagement standards” coming into this journey. I was not desperate for an engagement. I actually was very nervous about it and would be happy with no engagement if that were the right choice. All I wanted and would have been happy with was someone to love who loved me back. Someone who had some sort of conviction of how they felt, or was willing to make a sacrifice of any kind, as I had stated several times that I was eager to do the same. Not only is this conviction from the guy an indication for me to move forward with the relationship, but it is also an indication of what our life would be like post-show.
The Men Tell All was actually a blast! Well … it didn’t start out so fun … I got to the set and was waiting and waiting and waiting to come out onstage. Now that I’ve seen the show I understand why! The guys clearly had a lot to get off their chests.
The Bachelorette “Men Tell All” episode is set to air tonight, but one man who will not be appearing on the show is Wes Hayden. Arguably the most hated Bachelor sinceJason Mesnick, one can’t help but wonder why Wes will not be speaking his peace tonight.
You would think the men are contractually obligated to appear on the show, but evidently Wes seems to be a special case. According to Austin360.com, an entertainment site based in Wes’ hometown, “(Wes) angrily declined to appear on the ‘Men Tell All’ episode. A week later, however, he changed his mind but was told the show didn’t want him there.”
The reason being? The producers of The Bachelorette are not happy with Wes giving out unauthorized interviews. Wes has been pretty much bad mouthing the show in an attempt to defend himself. He blames bad editing for the way came off on the show. When asked about his non appearance, Wes said –
“They cancelled mine. They didn’t want me talking to anybody. I’ve been available. I’ve worked too hard in my life to let somebody destroy me for their TV ratings. I might be from Texas and I might talk slow, but I’m not stupid. If I had a hidden agenda to go on that show, my lips would have been sealed, never would I have once said I was there for my CD, my career and I have a girlfriend. I know how to market myself, and it would not have been to go on TV and have everyone hate me. (An ABC spokeswoman, Cathy Rehl, said that the week Hayden was booted on air, he wasn’t available for a media conference call. Also, ‘we don’t do conference calls with all the men,’ she said.)”
With two contestants left, there are speculations that The BacheloretteJillian Harris will most likely choose Ed over Kiptyn.
Bachelorette alum, DeAnna Pappas also predictsthat Jillian will choose Ed. According to Pappas, Jillian only has eyes for Ed since the first day she saw him. She also continues by saying, Jillian probably regrets keeping Wes on the show for as long as he stayed after revealing he has a girlfriend.
Last Monday’s episode, showed Ed who couldn’t keep his hands off the bachelorette as they participated in several of the planned activities, including swimming and a catamaran ride. He later declared his love to Jillian begging her to trust him.
The July 20 episode will feature all the guys that were sent home while the finale airs on the 27th. As reported earlier, Wes was not invited to attend the Men Tell All taping.
The Bachelorette finale does not air until 2 more weeks but we have some major spoilers here for you! Including the big rumor that Ed had a girlfriend during the show.
Stop reading now if you do not want to know what happens. Majority of this information comes from RealitySteve. This is the same guy that revealed what would happen with Jason Mesnick and Melissa Rycroft on The Bachelor earlier this year. He was 100% accurate then, so there’s a good chance he is with this info as well. Enjoy the spoilers below –
The last episode of The Bachelorette ended with Jillian Harris tearfully sending Reid home. Jillian was very emotional about her choice and is calling the decision “heart wrenching” in her new blog. Reid was seen by a lot of fans as being the favorite, so this choice came as a surprise to most.
What Jillian doesn’t touch on was the problems that she supposedly experienced in the bedroom with Ed. The implication from last night’s show was that Ed couldn’t rise up to the occasion, but fans of the show suspect the producers of the show might have staged the whole thing to throw us off. The rumor is Ed might be the winner with Kiptyn being the new bachelor. I honestly have no idea. It will be interesting to watch it all unfold.
Jillian however touches on her very steamy date with Ed. The Bachelor(ette) shows seem to be focused on pushing the envelope nowadays. These shows are getting more and more trashier by the minute. It seems they are trying to keep up with the VH1 dating shows.
The steamy massages with Ed and Jillian wasn’t that bad in my opinion. However the implications that Ed couldn’t get it up in the bedroom was a bit much and unnecessary for the viewers. They could have left out that storyline.
Excerpts from Jillian’s blog about this week’s episode is below –
It’s a little harder to write my blog now that there is less fun, juicy gossip and more deep, heartfelt feelings. How do you put this into words? This week was a hard one to watch — that heart-wrenching goodbye with Reid, the close-to-inappropriate steamy scene with Ed, (um, did that almost top my hot tub scene!? Yikes!) and me almost barfing on myself on that totem pole with Kiptyn! I have to admit that a lot of feelings came rushing back when I watched the episode this week.
Reid’s date was very bitterSWEET (I capped the sweet because it was more sweet than bitter). See, Reid and I had a very good energy together. When we were together, it was like an old high school crush. We rarely worried about the specifics and were always just so flighty together. What you didn’t see was that we actually got a couples’ massage on the beach before dinner. Soooo romantic! I highly recommend it (if you happen to be slumming around the beaches of Maui looking for something to do)!
So, that feeling that I have been looking for was definitely there with Reid, but the promise of any sort of commitment or partnership wasn’t there. And because I have been hurt before by not being realistic, it made me put up a wall and inevitably led to me letting Reid go. I will have to agree with Chris in saying this had to be the most emotional goodbye in Bachelorette history.
Now Ed’s date. I definitely have to say Ed and I fit A LOT into that day — the catamaran ride, cliff jumping and swimming in the ocean, but the best part of the date was not something I had planned … it was Ed’s surprise. I was SHOCKED when he told me he brought his parents to Hawaii. I had been hearing about this Judy for so long, she became sort of a legend to me. I am positive I was more nervous than she was. And how about Ed’s dad and his classic quote “What the hell are we doing here?” That was another belly laugh moment. After all the hometown dates, I will have to say this was definitely one of my favorites. So real.
Again, I have to say that this episode tugged on the heartstrings. I have been blessed with these three individuals who are not only bright, genuine, charismatic, gorgeous and down to earth — but who respect me and adore me. I can now say with 100 percent conviction that it is possible to fall for more than one person when you are presented with individuals of this caliber.
Jillian Harris is down to her final 3 men since eliminatingWes the jerk. Tonight will include romantic dates with each of the men left. Below is a sneak peek of what is to come. Plus we finally get to find which bachelor it is that had a hard time being romantic with her, pun intented.
The three men left include Kiptyn, Ed, and Reid. Check it out!
TELL US – WHO DO YOU THINK WILL MAKE THE BEST PICK FOR JILLIAN?
Wes Hayden from The Bachelorette is in overtime, trying to clear up his “good” name. Wes spoke out to a Texas radio station this week and claims he is not the jerk the show made him out to be. Wes claims to be a victim of deceptive, and false editing.
On whether or not he had a girlfriend – “I had a girlfriend last summer. She’s still a very good friend of mine. Every now and then we’ll go out and do lunch or something like that. I mean, I did some work for her mom, I’m good friends with her family,” Wes Hayden said.
“I just called [The Bachelorette producers] two weeks ago, and was like, ‘Look. I don’t care what y’all do to me. You can say I’m the worst guy in the world and I’m here for publicity, that I’ve got a girlfriend. But don’t mention anybody’s name. As soon as you mention her name, people in Austin are going to know her, because we dated for a long time. Sure enough, they mentioned her name the very next day.”
On his limo comments in his exit interview – You know the one where he says, “I’m the only guy in The Bachelorette history who’s made it to the top four with a girlfriend.” Wes claims they were taken out of context. “They don’t play what I say after that. I said, ‘Only guy in Bachelorette history to make it to the top four with a girlfriend. Get real, dude. If I had a girlfriend, I’d be home with her right now, and I wouldn’t be putting up with this $h!t.”
Wes words of wisdom to those wanting to be on Reality TV – “I think everybody needs to remember that this is a TV show, and it’s here for ratings. If anybody wants to go on any kind of reality show they really need to consider what could happen to them, and think about it long and hard.” He continued, “If you do go on, don’t say a whole lot, because they can pretty much do whatever they want. Basically when you sign up for a show like this you pretty much relinquish every right that you have.”
Not sure if I’m buying Wes’s excuses. Yes I believe the producers of the show can and do manipulate the things these contestants say, but Wes gave them a lot to work with. I doubt Tanner P and Jake made up the GF story out of the blue. He has no choice but to try to clean things up now for the sake of his “career.”
The Bachelorette’sJillian Harris finally did what everyone had been wanting for the past couple of weeks – Sent Wes Home! Jillian speaks out on the whole Wes issue in her new blog about the show. She admits she kept Wes for “way too long.” For some strange reason, she still doubts Wes actually had a girlfriend – sighs.
“So … Wes! I know I kept him for WAY too long. I FULLY admit this. Someone on here wrote the truest way to explain it — it’s like you’re watching a horror movie that you starred in … And all your friends are yelling at you, “He’s behind you! He’s behind you!” Ha. There are so many ways to explain my connection with Wes. I cringe to admit this, but I truly was blinded by many of Wes’s “good qualities” for the better half of his stay that I refused to see all the red flags (and there were a lot of them!).
I still don’t know if Wes had a girlfriend, but I do think Wes was there for his career. Along the way, we did build a friendship but his presence on the show was a disservice to both of us. It made me look like a fool and like I had bad judge of character, and it made him look like someone he is not. I guess this is what you lay out on the line when you sign up for something like this, right? Ultimately, you are all still entitled to your opinion, but I am a huge supporter of forgiveness and I hope you can give Wes a break and lay this one to rest.”
It’s good to see her admit her bad choice. I am however surprised she still doubts he had a girlfriend. Wes’s “girlfriend” Laurel Kagayspoke out last week defending Wes and claiming they were just friends.
Jake also spoke out on the issue and even said Wes and Laurel are still dating. I still choose to believe Jake on this one. Someone needs to tell Wes that he can pretty much kiss his country music career goodbye. No one is going so support a jerk. He has officially taken the crown of the biggest jerk title from Jason Mesnick.
