The Bachelorette: The Chap Came Back

This past Monday was the final episode of The Bachelorette, which makes this the last recap of the year!

I gotta say that overall, it was an interesting season. Jill is just as cute as can be and repped Canada wonderfully. Most of the guys were hubba hubba and there was more drama than I thought straight men should cause. I'm not sayin'....

It was also the season that I really got to see the devil editing jobs those producers at ABC do. Have they never heard of continuity?

As much as I enjoyed the season, it has to be said that as the number of bachelors dwindled, so did my gusto for the show. I mean, when you've got a slab of beef like Kiptyn, why wouldn't you find ways to have him shirtless in as many episodes as possible?

Anyway, it doesn't matter. She broke his heart. At least he says she did. I have doubts that he really was sprung for her, but we'll never know. Regardless, in true Bachelor/ette fashion, the set of the final rose ceremony (which is the "proposal") was extravagant and somehow makes the rejection more awkward and painful.

"I really care about you, and we totally have a connection, but I've fallen in love with someone else....but don't all these flowers make it feel a little better?"

Yeah, right.

Okay, so now Kip is gone and that means that Ed is going to be her pick right? Not so fast. In one of those dramatic moments that I don't think straight men are want to do, Reid comes back (and he's the third bachelor to do that this season)!

He's nervous. He's sweating. He's disheveled and wearing running shoes. He actually BOUGHT his ring (as in not provided by Neil Lane).

Then, he pours out his heart. He loves her. He should have said it sooner and gets down on one knee and proposes to her.


Speaking of rings, Jillian was proposed to with "a $60,000 platinum ring set with a 2.05-carat pear-shaped center diamond with six baguette-cut diamonds to accent the center stone and 94 round-cut diamonds to give it a contemporary look."

Oh, wait! Who gave her the ring!? Well, duh...

Obviously, it was Ed. You know, the bachelor who left because he was scared of losing his job. And then came back. And then couldn't get it up. And then he did.

Congratulations, kids!

On last night's "After The Final Rose", Jill and Ed shared their plans to be married sometime in the next year, and that Jillian is moving to Chicago in September to be with Ed.

Awwwwww....and so ends another fairy tale romance with impossibly unrealistic "dates" filmed for a reality show on American network television.

And for all you Lisp readers in the Chicago area, if you do see Jill, tell her the Lisp says "HI!" and that I want to talk to her!
