OBSESSION RECAPPED

You didn't think I would let the Finale of the Bachelorette go by without a recap.. DID YOU? :)

What can I say.... I wish I had saved it on my tivo, because I would have typed out exactly what Jason said in the limo... Something about Jesse being, "exciting and different" thus causing admiration. Then, once you get that out of your system, you go back to "safe". I don't think Jason was particularly safe. I mean, he showed his wild side.. his adventurous side.. How can anyone not feel totally heartbroken for him. He just, to me, seemed like the better guy to actually MARRY. But, I guess it is hard to see that unless you have BEEN married. Don't cha think? (What was up with the sister in law? She was ALL OVER Jesse... I think SHE wanted to marry him!) I think her actual sister had it more right, and I also think she DID have her mind made up by the time she brought them home (even though she CLAIMS she didn't) Because any time anyone would say anything derogatory about Jesse she wouldn't look at them.. .like she was mad and didn't want to hear what they had to say.

Just because DeAnna didn't choose who I wanted her to, I am not one of those people who say, "I AM NEVER GOING TO WATCH THAT STUPID SHOW AGAIN!" Why? Because I expected as much.. it never (Ok, almost never) turns out the way I wanted it to. I guess I just watch it for the ride and the human drama. We all relate to wanting to find "the one" and I think that is what makes it so interesting. To watch someone else go through that process (even though it is not REMOTELY like real life and it is on hyper speed).

There, I have recapped it for you (did I?) Or I guess more or less said my peace...now my stat counter will go back to normal (I was getting all of the googled Bachelorette Spoilers) It was sad to wake up this morning and see it back down to this:It makes my old numbers look soooooooo tiny.. Doesn't it? That is because I got over 1200 hits yesterday. WOW.

Now I am on to ANOTHER summer love... BURN NOTICE. It starts on Thursday night. If you have never watched it, it is on USA and I am sure they are re-playing old episodes until the new season starts. It is a super funny spy show where the lead actor is super easy on the eyes. Ahhhhhhhhhh summer.

okay, first of all -- 1200 hits? I'm thrilled when I get 30! You are my idol! I think DeAnna just decided she had to go with Jesse because he was her polar opposite so in her mind, it must be right. And you're right -- she saw Jason as too safe when really she is too immature to know that safe doesn't also mean boring. And how can you decide THE MORNING OF the final rose ceremony who you're going to pick? I mean, seriously! I so do not believe that at all. I know it's TV and stuff but I'd really love it if people were honest. But I guess it wouldn't make good TV to have her say on episode two, I know who I'm picking. :) And I'd never say I wouldn't watch again. I complain and complain about the show but if I like the people, I watch. If the next bachelor or ette is icky or lame, I won't watch but that's the only reason why. Is this your longest comment ever? I hope so! :) Hoping to make up for your lack of hits. lol

I TOTALLY agree with you....it was SO obvious that she was going to pick Jesse when she took them home to meet her family. She was completely bothered when her own sister said that Jason was a better "fit" then Jesse. Even her own Dad liked Jason more. I don't think her family thought she made the right choice, except for maybe her sister-in-law, when they showed them during the "After the Final Rose" special. It will be interesting to see if it lasts, but I won't be surprised to hear that it didn't work between them. Oh, and I'll definitely still watch...its a stupid show...but I'll still watch! =)

What in the? How on earth did I miss that you live here with me? HOW?

Meanwhile, Burn Notice is teh awesomest show EVAH.

JBelle said...

okay, I don't watch The Bachelorette but I am pretty sure your numbers will spike out of sight *again* if you write about cupcakes. Really sure, in fact.

Jill said...

Great recap. It was a good season for sure. Jason was my pick from the start, so I was bummed to see him get that close and have his heart broken. I really like Jesse though and think him and Deanna are a good fit! So..on to the next show. Jeremy or Jason as bachelor?!?
Shane and Matt sure were goofy. I think they are funny!

Bridget said...

OK never watched the show but you are so funny with your stat counter! I love it.

Anne said...

We'll be hearing about the break up of Shayne and Matt any day now. I decided I like Jesse. And, Jon will be horrified that I am letting other people know that he pays attention to this show,but he liked him too. Jon thought he was the only "manly guy" on the show. He was pleased that Jesse didn't make out with her right away. In fairness, Jon catches glimpses while I'm watching the show and he is writing papers! I'm thinking Jason will be an upcoming bachelor...He made it clear that he wants it.

Natalie said...

didn't watch it. But i have to say...1200 hits!?! You are more famous than Jessica R...and she was on the news, which makes her VERY famous! (your comment was funny) Since I am out of touch with pop culture (the bachelorette) i am going to have to think of something else to reel in the readers. ANy ideas? (Besides maybe actually doing a post)

AZ Karen said...

I didn't follow closely, so thanks for the recap. I did catch the last 10 minutes of the finale...I didn't really care for the guy she chose, but again, I didn't watch the whole thing.

Ilene said...

This mountain standard time is really screwing up with my t.v. viewing. Everything starts at 7pm out here and so I miss all the shows that I think start 8pm.

So, no Bachelorette for me. I'm glad you enjoyed it though.

I'm going to have watch this season when it comes on DVD.

Pineapple Princess said...

I'm with mom babe- I didn't realize you were here already. I'll make sure to turn up the heat a little until it gets warm enough for you.

Welcome to the desert!

jessica said...

Oh I wish we could have watched that together. I totally agree, she had picked Jesse a long time ago. I hope Jason will quickly realize that he got the better end of the deal...oh and I am so glad that the show isn't paying for her wedding, she only gets a honeymoon...ha ha
