A Graceful Exit

You can't call it anything else. It sucks that Stephanie was the one who didn't receive a rose last night. But - what class! She is a truly genuine person, and what Jason said to and about her in front of the other 4 girls was so nice. I think that all of the girls were sad to see her go as well. But like I have been saying all along - the romantic chemistry just wasn't there - he said it and she even admitted it too. I can't remember a booted girl who left so graciously.

It's funny to see these final 5 girls interact with each other, because I think that they are all enjoying the time that they spend together (especially by their reaction to Stephanie's departure). I have watched almost every season of this trash and never have I seen the girls get along so well at this point or be so sad to see one of their competitors leave.

My prediction - Stephanie will be the next Bachelorette. I think that ABC is going to get an influx of viewers' input about what a great person she it, what a loss she has suffered, how strong she is to do something so bold in the aftermath of that loss, and the fact that she definitely does deserve a happy ending. Time will tell...

Other than that - the episode didn't excite me so much. I was a little worried about Jillian's status on the show, but it seems like Jason is into her - hopefully she will open up a little more in Canada.

My favorite part of last night episode was the extra footage which was aired while the credits were running - when Jillian and Naomi were slurping their spaghetti. I think it was then that I realized why I like Jillian the best - she's just like me - right down to the classy burp that she let loose. Hilarious!

I still want to know when DeAnna comes back...it can't be for another 2 weeks because next week is the hometown dates. Darn it!
P.S. I know the spoiler - but I am not convinced until the end of the last show!

Carla- This is Sarah's friend Katherine. Just wanted to let you know that I love your Bachelor commentary. I always look forward to your posts. How are you feeling?

I have been waiting for this post! I actually got to watch the entire episode, and I completely agree with you about Stephanie's exit. I wasn't sure she was going to be the one to go, but I knew she should have been the one because the chemistry just wasn't there. Super nice lady, just not for Jason from what I can tell. I like Molly and Jillian, but am not totally sold on either yet.

I couldn't agree more! It was such a graceful exit. I'm guessing ABC has received thousands of requests for her to be the next Bachelorette. As for the remaining four... I'm a huge fan of Jillian and Melissa. Naomi is rubbing me the wrong way and Molly just annoys me. I don't like either of them. I want the final rose to go to Jillian.

Interesting observation about Stephanie being the next Bachelorette. I may just write ABC. I was so sad to see her go. I think she's really pretty BUT she looks much better on camera without the windswept hair and Southern belle makeup. She looks great in the casual "around the house" scenes.

I would agree with Becky on this one. My picks are Jillian first then Melissa. I don't think I like Molly, though Jason clearly wants her body:) And Naomi is ok but not great.
