Lincee has been blogging about television, movies, music and random personal ramblings since 2003. She's best known for her Bachelor recaps. Her sitcom boyfriends include Nick Miller, Richard Castle, Damon Salvatore, Jim Halpert and Wade Kinsella. She’s convinced that if she ever met Mindy Kaling, Tina Fey or Lauren Graham in real life, they would be best friends. You can read more of her work at I Hate Green Beans.
Why oh why, when a no rose boy is leaving and he says, “you have some great guys there,” doesn’t he follow it up with, “except for Wes — he’s a douche bag!”
And, how freaking annoyed am I that his lame-ass song is going through my head? Tonight sucks.
REALLY?!?!?!?!?! I wonder how well Wes’s cd is gonna do after this is all said and done? I hope he never hits the charts!! So glad that Ed is back though!!!
My DVR cut off everything after Michael’s parting words…btw, I really respect him for the way he spoke about Jillian. You can tell a lot about these guys by the way they act after they’ve been rejected. Anyway, did I miss anything important on the “coming up” scenes?
If I was Jillian, I would have wanted to meet Laurel and have a little chat.
I love Ed.
#3 jt — yeah, you missed the “coming up” of Jillian and Wes, over a romantic little dinner in Spain, where she’s asking him why, if Jake was making it all up, did he get so specific as to give the girlfriend’s name?
So glad Ed Lover’s back.
Can’t believe Jake would go to all the trouble of going to see Jillian to tell her about Wes’ girlfriend and Jillian would believe Wes anyway. No, baby, I don’t have a girlfriend. I have an ex-girlfriend who’s a good friend. You’re so beautiful. I want to be with you. You have beautiful eyes. But if you don’t want me, I don’t want you to meet my family.
So, I’ve been reading some blogs (Chris Harrison’s in particular) and a comment by someone from Austin, TX said that this “Laurel” girl is Wes’s girlfriend….and she is also Brad Womack’s ex-girlfriend. Does she only date men from The Bachelor/Bachelorette???
I swear our gal, Jilly, is dumber then a box of rocks!!!! Could the red flags not be waving fast enough? Just watching Wes try to explain anything was UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! His body language says it all!!! I’m with you, Susan #4, why would Jake waste his time coming to Austin (okay, I know he probably will be the next bachelor) and how many other guys have told her the same thing? GET A CLUE, GIRL!! Maybe all that wine from the hometown dates is going straight to her head? Could the wine glasses be any bigger? They looked like fish bowls!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a season……………Team Ed, for sure!!
I love that you have a sponsor on your blog……..”Nurse Jackie” on Showtime. You go girl!
I can’t look at Ed w/o thinking of Greg Brady.
I wonder how many times Wes’ family has had to cover for him?
Jason, then Jake, wonder if crying over the rail will be the new Bach man thing.
#5 Kristen, that’s right, HTCBrad’s ex WAS named Laurel!. Interesting. Crazy if it’s the same girl. But I guess they are both from Austin….
I can not believe she kept Wes…he is super sketchy. I know Michael is young, but I can’t believe she let him go, especially over Wes. Out of all of them Michael was my favorite…I would even date him. hahah
#8…I think Ed looks more like Denny from Grey’s Anatomy (if you’ve never watched it, look him up, exactly the same)
The entire interaction between Wes and Jillian after Wes’s band played was just uncomfortable and awkward (“I want to make this work… I’m here for the right reasons” what???) It seemed so fake and forced on Wes’s part…. and I honestly don’t understand how Jillian just doesn’t see it!!! Is it staged? She couldn’t possibly be that dumb. PS- Jake crying over the rail cracked me up. (Good call #8-s2c!)
#3 jt – You also missed Wes saying “…my girlfrie…EX-girlfriend…” when talking to Jillian. Any Austinites…was Wes’s band at Nutty Brown’s in last night’s episode?
I really want to believe that the bachelor is not scripted in any way, but last night the whole Wes and Jake showdown felt kind of fake. Then the return of Ed also felt staged also. If Wes is just milking the show for the publicity, its going to backfire as I am already sick of “Jillian’s song”, and I think most people are really repulsed by his sleaziness.
Jillian is an idiot….Wes can’t even lie good…why does he think he can sing? Did anyone notice that the band didn’t get to get up close and personal with Jillian? Why didn’t she get to talk with the band? Maybe she did and I just missed it….
Don’t think for one minute that Wes’ fambly wasn’t saving face for him….they were….wouldn’t you if you have a tool in your fambly that needed upgrading? Those girls were straight up pimpin’ out that boy.
It bugs me that Wes couldn’t look at Jillian and Jake in the eyes and deny the girlfriend….did anyone else notice that his denials twisted words in his favor?
OH! I was so hoping the girlfriends name was Bambi, or Stormi, or Muffy, or Buffy, or Twinkles?…..Laurel is just so a sweet sounding name….
I think Jake did the right thing last night….wonder if he’s getting grief from his friends for that crying business? I kinda didn’t like that….I don’t mind my man cryin’….just not on television….makes it look like he has a wimp card in his deck….
You know, its one thing when the red flags are unfurled. Even more when they are flapping away loudly. But when the red flags are slapping you in the face – its time to pay attention.
She deserves the misery that seems to follow her.
Oh, I so wish that Hare would break in and show her Wes’ interview footage – where ALL he talks about is his music and NOT HER.
Does anyone else think that Jake studied Jason’s balcony rail crying move to perform it?
