Where do I even begin?!?!?! I have never really watched these types of shows for one reason or another, but these season my best friend Jessica got me curious so I started watching it. I didn't start watching at the beginning but I don't think I missed anything too important. But right away I was quite intrigued just to find out who he will end up with. However addicting this show is... I actually kind of dislike and don't quite grasp the concept of it. I do not know how any one could do a show like this... ya ya to find love... but how can you really get to know and fall in love with someone in that way?? They don't even get to spend much time together until later on in the show when there are only a few people, but even then its not that much. And I don't know how anyone would be okay with knowing that he is out making out and telling all these other girls that they are "the most amazing woman he has ever met". I would be so annoyed. Its interesting to me that the girls are extremely friendly to each other at the house. That would just be so weird to me to hear all this stuff about the guy I'm dating and potentially falling in love with from other girls. WEIRD!!
I honestly do not know why they have the ultimate goal be a proposal. Although I have not watch any other seasons, I have heard that the majority of these relationships don't last. I don't understand why it has to go straight to that. I mean marriage is a HUGE deal and its a HUGE decision. I don't know how either of the people could know each other well enough by that point to feel confident to become that committed to each other. Pretty much their whole relationship has been on TV up to that point.. how could you know how they are going to be once the cameras aren't around and you don't have the whole world watching???? Why not just have the end result just be the girl who he wants as his girlfriend and maybe one day a proposal?? That probably wouldnt be as fun to watch but it would make more sense. Another thing that drove me up the wall is that they kept saying he was in love with these two different women. I dont believe that that is possible. I mean he could care greatly about both, yes, but be in LOVE with them??? Um no probably not...
There were quite a few interesting girls on this season. I absolutely loved Melissa. She is such a sweetheart. I was hoping the whole time that he would pick her and I was estatic when he proposed!!! I even teared up and got goosebumps... (I'm such a cry baby.. ha ha). I never really liked Molly. She always just seemed off to me and a little scandalous. She just rubbed me the wrong way. When Jason told her that he had to let her go and she started shaking her head and telling him that he was making a huge mistake that pissed me off so bad. I feel for her because that would SUCK to be in that position... but if the man I loved told me he would be happier with someone else, I would wish him well and respect his decision. I believe thats what someone in love would want.... just for the person they love to be happy, no matter what that means.
I liked Jason all the way up until the After the Final Rose episode. I was FURIOUS when he said he wanted to break up with Melissa. He is a complete idiot. Sweet little Melissa made some very good points and I thought it was funny that Jason didnt have anything good to say in response. I mean if you honestly love someone.. or supposedly love someone... and you were having problems... wouldnt you want to try and work through it?!?!?!?! He is such a traitor for giving up that quickly and just dropping her like that. I wouldnt be so mad at him had he atleast TRIED to make things better... but instead he just gives up and wants what he cant have. Im curoius to see what happens with Molly and if he just gets sick of her too.
