Jillian says "Absolutely" to my home town boy, Ed

Ok, so I said I would not get hooked again on another one of these reality shows, but, I've always loved the name "Jillian", and she reminds me of my niece, Kyla. So, in the beginning of the Bachelorette, my picks were Jake, the Pilot and Kiptyn, one of the final 2. I only started liking Ed after he came back on the show from having to leave because of his job in Chicago. He reminds me of a cuddly teddy bear. I was so thrilled that she accepted Ed's proposal. I NEVER seem to get these things right, but for once I did. And, he is from my home town, Chicago, which makes it all the more exciting. ABC thought they would throw in a twist by having Reid coming back to confess his love and propose, and I have to admit, I was a little nervous, eating ice cream and any snack I could get my hands on, hoping that she would not accept. It ended just the way I wanted it to. I just hope she doesn't kick Ed to the curb in a few weeks and take Kiptyn or Reid back.

I too have tried to stay away from these reality shows...it is so sad when you are hoping they have found the right one but in the end someone kicks someone to the curb.
I was flipping channels last night and saw the program. What drama!
I am glad she knew who she wanted and stuck to it.
What class though when she used a curse word...while waiting for Ed to show up. I think maybe they could have edited that for her sake. See I can't watch these shows without become becoming a commentator. Guess these shows give me an opinion that doesn't really matter. ;)

YAAAAAAAAAAAYEEEEE ED!! Good ol' Jason is my hometown boy...not exactly something to brag about these days. ;) hehe.

Ed really grew on me, too. And they were clearly in love. I was a Reid fan, but I didn't see the connection like I see with Jillin and Ed. Maybe she got it right and they'll run off into the sunset like Trista and Ryan.

Tonight's epi should be good too....after the final rose, unless of course they throw us a curveball again, but I don't think they will. Hopefully they bring Wes back, though so the audience can delight in throwing melons at his head. ;)

I must say... I hadn't watched even ONE episode until last week when Jane had on the one where all the guys are there... and I kind of got hooked at the last minute. Last night, I watched the whole thing with my heart in my throat! I really loved Kypton... but I liked Ed, too. When the other guy showed up, I was very upset... and I wanted him to LEAVE!! It just went on and on and on. I must say that I like Ed, but now that I know he's a Chicago guy... well, that's all I need to know!! Good pick, Jillian!!
