Jake Pavelka narrowed down his bachelorettes to his final 2 last night on The Bachelor and there is a major contrast between the two remaining women.
His final pick will be either the always sweet and happy 25 year old Tenley Molzahn, or the controversial 23 year old Vienna Girardi. In a new interview with E! News, the host Chris Harrison is now promising us Jake’s final pick will be a shocker. “I know for a fact Jake is happy with his decision,” says Chris.
“As far as everyone’s opinion,” Chris says when asked about the winner, “I will steal a line from Jake. He has said, ‘I will shock people, I will disappoint people,’ but he did what he feels was right, and I totally support him. Good for him.”
Chris also defends Vienna, who has gotten a bad rep both on and off the show. “I think Vienna has a bit of a bad rep,” he explains. “I think she was put behind the 8 ball in the beginning, because when you are one on the front-runners early on, there is a target put on your back. So, there is competitiveness, there is jealousy from the other girls. But in the other girls’ defense, I don’t think Vienna went out of her way to fix that problem. She even stoked the flame a couple times. And so by the time she tried to apologize and make things better, that ship had sailed and it was just too late.”
SPOILER – Do not highlight the sentence below if you do not want to know who wins the show.
The winner of the show is indeed Vienna Girardi. RealitySteve.com revealed this spoiler weeks ago, and so far has been accurate in all his spoilers for this season. So there you have it, Vienna is Jake’s final pick. No word on if they are still together.
SO TELL US, WHO DO YOU WANT AS JAKE’S FINAL PICK? er.
The Monday night episode of The Bachelor was a bit emotional as contestant Ali Fedotowsky had to choose between Jake and her job. She chose her job, but could she pull an Ed and return later this season?
According to Bachelor Host Chris Harrison, we should definitely not rule that out, as he declared it’s “definitely not over between Jake and Ali.”
“We haven’t seen or heard the last from Ali,” Chris tells E! News. “I think everyone saw that it was unresolved when she left. You could tell that they both definitely were falling in love with each other, if not already. And so we take off for St. Lucia, but they’re definitely not done talking about this with each other.”
Chris even says Jake Pavelka still has strong feelings for Ali. “I talked to Jake this morning, and he said it was tough to watch her leave again last night,” he says. “I asked if he considered promising Ali that she was the one so she’d stay, and Jake said, ‘Well, she wasn’t the one. She was one of the front runners.’ He said she needed to decide on her own and he didn’t want to be desperate and beg, but he really didn’t want her to go.”
In other Bachelor news, Us Weekly is dedicating their cover to the Bachelor for the 2nd week in a row. This time around, they focus more on America’s sweetheart – Tenley Molzahn, and even score an interview with the new fiance of her ex-husband, Ryan Natividad.
Tenley had accused her ex of cheating on her on the show with one of his co-workers. Interestingly enough, he is now engaged to be married to the same co-worker he allegedly cheated with. However, the “alleged” other woman is now denying claims she cheated with Ryan while he was still married to Tenley, and even claims Tenley, 25, isn’t “the sweet girl everyone thinks.”
“She’d only allow sex once a week…and sometimes she withheld it,” said Christina Latham. It doesn’t end there as Christina claims Tenley“wouldn’t let him see his family.” She also believes “There’s no way she loved him.”
This season of The Bachelorhas been rather dramatic with last night being the most dramatic episode yet. ContestantAli Fedotowsky mulled over the difficult decision of having to pick between her dream guy and her dream job.
The 25-year-old advertising accounts manager — who works for Facebook — decided to quit the show leaving Jake Pavelka “heartbroken.” It seemed Ali wanted some sort of guarantee from Jake that she would be the last woman standing, Jake ofcourse could not give her that assurance, hence she decided to leave.
Jake, 32, will now have to pick between the three remaining contestants: Vienna Girardi, Tenley Molzahn and Gia Allemand. The finale airs Monday, March 1 on ABC.
Fans were shocked to see Ali leave so abruptly, but even more shocked was Jake, who shared his thoughts on his PEOPLE blog today. Excerpts from Jake’s blog below -
“After visiting all the families, I felt really good about where I was in this journey. Then I got back to L.A. and the bottom dropped out. My heart crumbled when she told me her boss demanded her back at work. I didn’t actually think she would leave me. We talked about it for three hours that night while the poor women at the rose ceremony just waited. She actually didn’t have to be back at work for four or five more days but we were leaving the country the next morning, so she had to make a decision. I felt like she wanted me to make the choice for her, but I couldn’t. How could I live with myself if I told her, “No! You are not leaving me now!” and then realize a week or two later that she was not “the one.” I couldn’t make the decision for her. When she told me she was leaving, my heart stopped. I wish I could’ve had Mike Tyson punch me square in the jaw, because it would have felt so much better than what I feeling as I watched AliCat drive away that night.
What could I do? I had to regain my composure and focus on the amazing women I had left; three women that I have fallen in love with.”
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON ALI LEAVING? SHOULD SHE HAVE STAYED?
Most recently eliminated Bachelorcontestant Corrie Adamson had some strong words during her recent exit interview from the show.
Corrie, who said she wasn’t surprised at her elimination, reveals she doesn’t believe any of the remaining four women would be a great fit for Jake Pavelka. “I just, either way, didn’t see him with anyone, long-term, in all honesty,” Corrie told reporters.
However Corrie believes out of the four women remaining, Jake has a stronger connection with two of them. “But I think that him and Vienna and Ali all had a really strong connection and I think Tenley is a really great girl and he’d be lucky to have her. And I loved Gia to death, she was one of my good friends while I was there — but I don’t see her and Jake together at all.”
When asked about her thoughts on Jake’s rumored pick – Vienna, Corrie said, “They had a strong connection and I won’t be surprised to see that. [But] I will be surprised if they last.”
And on the Vienna topic, she has been taking a lot of heat in the press lately for a few reasons. One — she is Jake’s rumored final pick, and two — she seems to have a lot of skeletons in her closet. The 23 year old former Hooters waitress and Orlando native, has an ex husband and ex fiance all at the age of 23.
Her ex husband,Josh Riley, and former mother-in-law recently came out in the press accusing her of cheating on her ex-husband with his friend while he was deployed in Iraq. Her ex mother-in-law even accused her of draining her ex-husband’s bank account to pay for her breast implants.
Her friends are now coming to her defense (the women on the show aren’t allowed to do press until they are eliminated or done with the show). A close family friend spoke to RadarOnline denying all claims that Vienna cheated on her ex, and that she stole money from him.
According to this friend, “Vienna was a straight A student at school and got an academic scholarship to go to college.” Apparently, Vienna’s family was devasted when she decided to leave college and marry Josh. She would later complete her college degree after her divorce. Vienna’s father helped the couple financially, said the close family friend and Josh was the one who called her from Iraq to call off the marriage.
The account she took money from was a joint account for the couple and Vienna left $5,800 in the account for Josh according to the friend. The friend goes on to say Vienna is a “good” and a “really sweet person.”
According to our recent poll, most readers believe Tenley is the best match for Jake, with Vienna being the worst match.
“I just, either way, didn’t see him with anyone, long-term, in all honesty,” Adamson, whom Pavelka rejected during Monday night’s broadcast, told reporters during a Thursday conference call.
“But I think that him and [Vienna Girardi] and [Ali Fedotowsky] all had a really strong connection and I think [Tenley Molzahn] is a really great girl and he’d be lucky to have her. And I loved [Gia Allemand] to death, she was one of my good friends while I was there — but I don’t see he and Jake together at all.”
Jake Pavelka shocked a lot of viewers Monday night when he sent home four ladies vying for his heart instead of the three he was required to.
In one episode, he went from having 9 bachelorettes to having his final 5, a first in The Bachelor history. In a new interview with TVGuide, Jake opens up on why he sent 4 women packing, he also discusses Rozlyn Papa and why we can expect the finale to be a shocker.
The latest issue of UsWeekly magazine also claims Rozlyn started her affair with the Bachelor producer Ryan Callahan months before the show actually started filming. Rozlyn has denied this ofcourse. Excerpts from Jake’s interview below -
TVGuide.com: On Monday’s episode, you decide to “clean house.” What prompted that decision? Jake Pavelka: I’m starting to get close with some of the women, and it’s lulling with some of the others. So I don’t know if Chris [Harrison] would let me do it, but I make some odd requests to break up the protocol of the show and break the standard model that they normally like to follow.
TVGuide.com: How much do you let the some of the women’s opinions about other contestants on the show affect your decisions? Jake: The most important thing was me. I want to see things for myself. I know what to watch for. They were telling me these things about Vienna. The problem with that is it’s starting to get so out of control, even women like Ali are starting to get into it. It’s like I’ve got 15 minutes with you. Do you really want to throw all these other girls under the bus when you’re spending time with me? I’m seeing some true colors here.
TVGuide.com: Speaking of Vienna, you looked terrified on your bungee jump date. How much of your input goes into planning the dates? Jake: When we were talking about doing that date, I didn’t have a particular girl in mind. There was some conversation when I heard her say, “I’m so afraid of heights.” I thought, “Uh oh. I know what I’m doing with you.” [Laughs] When the dates get planned, once the girls are cast and everything … I throw some things out there that I’ve done that have really worked out for me in past relationships. Then, they kind of modify it a little bit. So it’s really great getting to be involved. It’s really me.
TVGuide.com: What can you tease for viewers about the end of the season? Jake: I think the ending is probably going to puzzle a lot of people, and I think some others are going to go, “Ok, yeah. If you look back, you could see this.”
TVGuide.com: Have you been following the Rozlyn scandal in recent weeks? Jake: She made some terrible decisions. It happens to everybody. This was just a very public one. I hope that she and the staff member are in love, and I expect an invitation to the wedding because it was really costly for the both of them.
My thoughts on the Bachelor so far – This season has been good thus far especially with the whole Rozlyn affair drama. I do get the feeling though that Jake decided early on that he really liked a few women, and therefore did not give some of the other women a fair chance as evident by him sending home 4 women on Monday night.
The big issue this season that keeps coming up is why do the other women hate Vienna so much? Is it jealousy become she has a strong connection with Jake? or is she really just a crappy person and ABC is giving her a good edit? The whole thing seems a bit bizarre. Even sweet and happy Tenley does not like her. With the exception of her telling Jake she wanted to go last for the one on ones during the group’s date in the recent episode, I haven’t really seen a reason for the other women not to like her. I’m guessing we are not getting the whole picture with the editing.
What I am certain of is that Ali has turned me off a lot with her attitude in the last few episodes. Okay we get it, you don’t like Vienna, but geez do you have to talk about her every chance you get? She really needs to let it go and focus on Jake. Plus the whole if Jake picks her, then I plan on having a talk with him was a bit too much. I mean is she Jake’s mommy? Is she going to scold him? I think Ali’s true colors are starting to show, and pretty they are not.
