Raise you hand if you were TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY FLOORED that Jillian got booted off The Bachelor last night.
You know The Bachelor, where the "contestants" go on completely realistic dates like helicoptering over New Zealand, "acting" on real soap opera sets, and floating on Winston Churchill's old boat. And everyone falls in love with one guy and he falls in love with all the girls. And will eventually propose to one of them, even though he was hopelessly devoted to several of them only days prior. That's the stuff lasting marriages are made of, folks.
I'm not going to recap last night's episode because there are already plenty of hysterical recaps in the bloggy network. If you love The Bachelor AND love to laugh, check out BooMama's recap or head over to Lincee's HI-larious blog (no recap posted yet, but wait for it! Plus you can catch up on the other episodes in the meantime).
However, I was sad to see "Jill" go home. I loved her and her hair. Just how voluminous can one girl's hair be? I need to get my hand's on some Candian shampoo or something b/c that girl's hair had it going on. And those 2 adorable dresses she wore last night? Fantastic!
She did lose a few respect points with me when she started telling Bachelor Jason, after she didn't receive the rose in THE MOST DRAMATIC ROSE CEREMONY EVER, about the dream she had about him and his son and how it made her so happy. I've had some vivid dreams that made me feel pretty wild, but note to Jillian- don't say it in your outside voice immediately after you've had your heart torn into a million pieces. It just makes you seem a bit desperate and IT WASN'T REAL.
So now, raise your hand again if you think Jill will be the next Bachelorette. Unless Bachelor Jason makes the mistake of his life and chooses wide-eyed fake-smiling-all-the-time Molly instead of adorable, and full-of-spunk Melissa. Then "Mel" might have the honor. But Jill is my prediction and you heard it here first!
