...Jillian, that is. From ABC's, The Bachelorette.
What a fantastic season finale. The roomie and I drank a bottle of sangria and ate tostitos with a hint of lime and half-moon cookies to get us through all of the anticipation. When Reid got down on his knee to propose we both freaked out and screamed (our cranky downstairs neighbor probably heard us!) and we were gripping each other's hands and covering our mouths. It was quite dramatic. THEN - she turned him down. Poor guy! And then when Ed proposed, we screamed again! It was so exciting! I love that show. We liked Kiptyn's ring better, but Ed's looked pretty much gorgeous, as well. How exciting! I can't wait to watch tonight's After the Rose episode. Poor Kiptyn, though. I thought for sure she was going to pick him. That's who I would have picked. I loved his zest for life and he lives in San Diego and surfs and loves the ocean! HELLO! Have fun in Chicago with Ed, Jillian. Isn't that where he is from?! But in any case, how freaking exciting. I would love to get a behind-the-scenes look at how the show is created. I know they say there is so much scripting and stage events, but is the love real? I'll just go with yes. But Ed and Jillian must be so excited because now they can be in the public eye together. That must have been so hard to have to kept their love and relationship quiet during the show. What do you all think? How about Ed had those same SHORT GREEN SHORTS on again! EUGH. Again, I would have gone with Kiptyn. I think he is a much better dresser and did you see his BODY?! Oh baby! What do you think Jillian does to get in such good shape for the show? She must have a personal trainer. Why don't they ever have any girls that are like size 8-10 on the show? It would make me feel a little bit better about myself. Ok - what do you all think?!!Here's a little recap: (http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/b136308_bachelorette_jillian_gets_engaged_other.html)
"Jillian, you may not know how much you have impacted me, how much you have changed me as a man and helped me reprioritize my life," Ed told her. "You are everything I could ask for in a woman."
"There is no doubt in my mind that I am madly in love with you," she replied. "I love you so much."
And so down on one knee he went.
"I want to be with you forever," Ed said, offering up his ring. "I want a family with you. I want you to give me a hard time when we're 80 years old. Jillian, will you marry me?"
To make a long story short, she said yes.
