I wasn't even going to watch the episode because of my TV conflict but then my husband needed to work so I watched it but I didn't take notes...and I missed the first 10 minutes. I came in when Tenley and Jake's Mom were talking and within a few minutes I was misty eyed.
Tenley is such a genuinely nice person. She just really wants to be in love again and for someone to love her. I could see that she was liked by every member of Jake's family and that she would completely fit in with them.
Then Vienna shows up. I just don't see this going well. There is tension immediately and uncomfortable silence at the lunch table. Vienna acts like a teenager going to her boyfriends house for dinner for the first time. The family asked her why she can't get along with people and her reply was that she is brutally honest. Jake's brother tells the camera that is the sign of immaturity. He nailed it. Some how...the family decides that they like her afterall...which just shocked the heck out of me. I just can't see Vienna fitting into this family. I see lot's of feuds with the Mom and Sisters-in-law.
On Jake and Vienna's little date...they played in the mud. Gross. Later she wrote him a note and gave him her Daddy ring since she doesn't need it anymore.
Tenley and Jake go on a boat and you can see that Jake isn't really there. He's lost in thought and no doubt the mud. He tells Tenley that he doesn't think they have physical chemistry...which he says is different than sexual chemistry. Something tells me that Jake flunked CHEMISTRY in high school and that's why he ended up a pilot. He hurt her feelings badly and I felt terrible for her and wanted to throw Jake off from the boat. Tenley deserves more than he's giving her.
Jake picks a ring...I fast forwarded through this part.
Tenley takes a helicopter ride to a beautiful estate. Jake tells her that he loves every about her and that she's perfect but he likes it rough and she's too breakable. He walks her to the waiting car and tells her that he loves her. She, being the wonderful gal that she is...thanks Jake for helping her love again. This is one classy lady.
Vienna shows up, he gives her the Daddy ring back and then he proposes.
After the Final Rose.....
Jake is wearing all black, I'm guessing for all of us that loved Tenley and are now in mourning. Tenley gets to talk to him and he tells her that there was a spark with Vienna that wasn't there with her. He would like to be friends. God I hate that.
Vienna comes out looking much better than she did on the show and they say that they are super happy and she's moving to Dallas. She also denied all of the tabloid reports that she's a skank. Yeah...right. Then Jeffrey Osborne came out and sang that awful song.
The best part of this whole show was when they brought Ali out and announced her as the next Bachelorette! I got goosebumps when they announced it so I must like her more than I thought I did. Go Ali!

Why, or why is Jake on this show? Doesn't he have a JOB? A pilot job? I hope he has two left feet.....
