FEEL FAINT FROM THE RECENTLY CONCLUDED BACHELORETTE SEASON!
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
My heart, be still! I mean, Be still, my beating heart! Last night was a culmination of one of the most dramatic and heart-tugging seasons ever of the Bachelor/ Bachelorette franchise. The intense emotions were so over-whelming that I felt faint from the action-packed romantic action!
The Bachelorette has concluded for yet another season. Which is probably a good thing for my health.
Watching happiness & heartbreak on Monday nights is over. for now....until Juan Pablo starts it all up again as the new Bachelor in January.
The season that just ended was dissed by many Bachelorette fans as "boring" and that Desiree was "not sexy enough." Perhaps. But Des is a wholesome-type who, I feel, had the misfortune to have her bachelor picks loaded up with guidos from New Jersey and swarthy ethnic types from Chicago.
That fact alone, got the summer show off to a dismal start.
But Des made another mistake common to ladies--she took a liking to a man who was not returning her ardor. Yes, it has happened to the best of us. But Brooks, from the start, despite his good looks, did not seem to be a good match for Desiree.
There was something about him that was effete, although I do not think that someone not into females would be that bold as to go on a heterosexual dating show as The Bachelorette and "pretend." I just got the feeling that Brooks was there to enjoy the luxurious destinations and fine locations that the show travels to, and was not there....here it is:
"for the right reasons." As soon as Des got down to her finale four, I bet Brooks started to panic, and despite the chance to visit that last tropical island and dine on some great food, he grew desperate to wiggle out of Des' romantic vision and claimed he was not "feeling it." Yeah, right.
Thus the heartbreak of last week's show, where tears and second-guessing turned the evening into one big bummer. But it was just not meant to be.
Des rallied to send Drew home, although I did like him a lot, and open up her heart to the one who had been there for her all along. Isn't that the way love sometimes works out? The great guy or gal that is right in front of your nose is overlooked for the flashy hottie that entices you, despite yourself.
So Des gets her happy ending, She has a wonderful man who is NOT AFRAID to express his feelings. I know that is one complaint that most women are always moaning about: HE NEVER SHARES HIS FEELINGS WITH ME!
Good for Des. Congrats to her and Chris. Meanwhile, my heart can prepare to rest from the melodrama until the next Bachelor show comes around.. That Juan Pablo looks like a real charmer! January 2014 cannot come soon enough!
