The Bachelor Makes His Final Pick, or Does HE?

The Bachelor Gossip, framed


Suzanne Coleman


It’s finally here girls!  “The Bachelor” Chris Soules is faced with “the biggest decision EVER!” when he has to pick between two girls he sort-of knows to be his future fiancée.  What WILL HE DO?!

I’ll be live blogging the event like I did for “The Women Tell All” so here we go (refresh the page as needed)!

The show starts out with Whitney at Chris’ house, she’s putting on a good show.  She says all the right things and does all the right things, and everybody just LOVES her!  Is that real?  (I already can’t stand her voice… I am trying…  If you haven’t already seen my article on her VOICE, check it out here!  It’s a must read:

Then after Whitney is gone, the family asks Chris about Becca, and he gets all choked up.  Aw… 🙂  It seems like his family is already rooting for Whitney though.  Come on guys, give Becca a chance at least!

It seems like Chris is under a lot of pressure to marry from his family.  I hope he doesn’t jump into something he really isn’t feeling, that wouldn’t be right for him or for whomever he chooses.  He sure has a lot of guys pulling for him though, that’s nice to see.


And we’re back!  The family is chatting about meeting Becca today.  They are worried that he isn’t totally sure which girl he wants, yet.  He is talking about how the girls would be willing to move to Iowa.  That whole thing seems like it’s really one-sided to me, it’s all about Chris and not about the other person’s needs or interests.  If you’re in love, you’re in love, it isn’t a business arrangement where you’re hiring a new partner… but that’s just me.

Now it’s Becca’s turn.  Aw, here she is, so cute.  They  kiss.  She’s nervous, of course, to meet his family.  It’s a critical moment for their relationship.  Wow big group!  That would make anyone nervous.

Chris is saying he loved Becca’s family and he thinks they would mesh together well.  They apparently loved him when he was at her home town visit.

Becca tells his family what she thought about their town.  It was… small lol.  She’s cracking up his family joking about the weekend entertainment in their town being everybody heading out to hang at the post office lol.  She says she’ll tell her family not to e-mail but to write her letters instead…

Becca opens up with the ladies in Chris’ family, telling them her concerns about how she isn’t ready to start having kids right away.  She then says she wouldn’t move to Arlington (his home town) until she is SURE that it’s right for HER.  I see the family close off when she says that.  Maybe I’m imaging it…  Ooops, nope.  The family says they don’t want someone who isn’t totally sure.  Well…

One of the ladies says “well she (Becca) has to give you something.”  Seriously, like uprooting her life and moving to another state isn’t a freaking huge deal?  Hmmm…  I think it’s a huge deal.  The family’s viewpoint is so one-sided.  I can see this not going well with Becca.  I think she’d be better off with people who respect her as an individual and not just as someone’s wife.

Becca has a private chat with Chris’ mom, who seems very kind and sincere.  His mom points out that Becca’s feelings just might mean that she is already in love with him, and maybe she isn’t ready to really deal with that yet.  But personally, I think it could be lust or attraction and not love, that makes you feel the things she is feeling…

Chris and Becca kiss goodbye.  She says, that thinking of not being with Chris forever is just scary to her.  There are lots of decisions to be made and they will need to talk, she says.

She’s gone and they’re back to the family.  That guy in the beard is a wise man.  He says that you can’t necessarily analyze love, it’s a gut feeling in your heart and you just have to go with it.

Here with Chris H., he sees what I did, that Chris S.’ family seems to be leaning strongly towards the girl who’s ready to start popping out those little farmer babies!  🙂  (That’d be Whitney.)

Aaaaannndddd, we’re back.  Chris H. says we should get ready for something shocking that’s never happened before.  A girl next to him covers up her smirk, yes Chris we HAVE heard that one before!  But then he says, Chris S. has one last date with each of the girls to help him make a decision…  ok Chris H., we’ll give you that one.  Though it’s not really what I’d call “SHOCKING”…

So here we are Chris S. and Becca somewhere very private together.  What do you want Chris? she asks.  “I want everything that you can give me…”  She says that she is “falling in love” with him.  He really wants to know if she can see a real future together with him in his life…  how does she feel?  Good question Chris!

She’s not ready.  It seems like she wants to know the future, that it will work out for sure before she commits to moving to Arlington.  That’s smart, but also maybe too fearful.  She can always move there and then change her mind later.  She is feeling the pressure and getting upset…

Maybe she IS too young for him.

He asks her “why don’t you feel like you are in love with me?”  She doesn’t have a good answer and is just confused it seems.  She says that maybe her confusion is because this is the first time that she’s felt this way and been in this situation.

The one thing that she is sure about is that she wants him.  That’s the one thing.

He’s doing a good job of trying to understand where she is really at with their relationship, but I think she just needs more time to learn and grow to be in the place that he needs her to be.  Maybe 2-3 years… what do you guys think?

Now, she identifies that she can’t picture what SHE would do in Arlington.  She is a good person, smart and thinking about her future and what will make her happy.

Becca is so cute, I love her hair…

Chris is talking about how he is torn.  It seems like he knows Becca isn’t ready, and he isn’t really willing to wait.  I think he knows he has to let her go and that it’s going to hurt her and that’s why he’s really upset and torn up.

Now time for a commercial:  “Groove is in the heart” is playing… sure seems like a lot of good music from the old days is coming back…

It’s time for Chris’ final date with Whitney.  In a corn field, in winter… brrrrr!  Apparently it’s his farm.  His dad joins them and they climb on a giant piece of farm equipment.  They go out in the field and harvest corn.  He teaches her what they do with the corn.  He looks pretty happy to have her there with him.  Maybe the rumors are true and she is the one?

They take a romantic ride through the cornfields together and he shows her all of his land (eh, about 800 acres).  He takes her back to his place…  It’s a nice regular house.

She gives a speech about how it’s all so perfect and she knows it’s right and he’s right and … they kiss.  He looks very happy.  Looks like a match to me.

Back from another commercial.  Whitney is still telling him how she’s sure she wants to be with him and she’ll be happy in Arlington…  He said he’s pretty happy how things went with her and he’s pretty comfortable now…  i.e. he is going to pick her.  (At least that’s how it is seeming to me.)

She explains that this is how she would want to feel if she was in love with someone, HUH?  Wait you mean, you’re not in love with him?  Hmm.. maybe she is playing him and all of us too!

He asks her how she is so certain of them together.  She says she thought he was attractive on “The Bachelorette” so you know, that’s all she needed.  Jk, she starts out with that but then goes on and on about how she wants to be with him etc.   Ok, let’s move on, I’m sure I’m boring you with them by now…

Lol he’s so good with words.  🙂  They kiss some more.   She talks.  Semi-dramatic music plays ever-so-slowly in the background as she goes on and on and on… dramatic music comes to an end, the audience is clapping somewhat wildly.

And we’re back.  The camera pans over flat and not-very-interesting Iowa in the winter.  That’s ok Iowa, we’re not much better.  Chris is shown pondering without his shirt on.  Bonus.

More dramatic music plays.  Whitney is standing, thinking, in front of a pond.  Chris is shown staring out of his window into the sunrise.  There is a knock on the door, it’s a shocking surprise, the ring guy is here!

Chris’ voice is saying he’s actually still not sure which girl he wants to be with.  Uh oh…  the music is getting much more dramatic!  He then says, you’re not human if you don’t question who you’re going to spend the rest of your life with.  He’s bucking up!

The girls are getting all dressed up now, Becca’s dress is a gorgeous deep red and Whitney’s is a blue-purple gown.

HAHA!  they show that he’s going to propose in a barn, that’s hilarious.  It’s all fancified, but still, it probably smells like animals and hay.  I hope the girls are not allergic!  He says something about this is where he raises his pigs I think.  HAHA!  Hilarious.

[Since we’re on commercial I thought I’d let you know that the most searched terms for tonight’s blog have to do with…  you guessed it!  Whitney’s voice. 🙂 ]

oh GAWD Chris H. comes on and says  “stay tuned for ‘After the Final Rose’ because what happens there will CHANGE EVERYTHING.”  The whole audience groans.  He says it’ll be amazing…  Yeah, we’ll see Chris…  we’re totally on to you.

Here comes limo #1 while Chris S.’ voice runs over the images.  It’s Becca, red velvet dress.  Sweet.  Pretty scene with the light hitting her air and a bit of wind blowing in the microphones.  He’s saying “I don’t want to say goodbye…”   I wish my hair looked like that!  😉  (Hers, not his!  haha)

Chris is about to break Becca’s heart.  Aw, this is the hard part to watch.

He’s telling her how great they could be together.  Way to build her up before you destroy her.  He starts to cry.  She is starting to see, it’s not going to be her tonight.

“You’re not really ready,” he tells her.  “I have to go with my heart.”  She looks mad. No tears from her, yet.  He’s saying nice things to her about appreciating having met her family and “been with” her.

She’s so calm.  Wow.  She communicates so well.  She will be an amazing partner for someone one day, for real.  She says nice things back to him.  She’s got a great head on her shoulders, congrats to her family and to her.

He breathes a sigh of relief that she didn’t sob and wail and make it even harder than it probably already was.  They hug and walk out hand in hand into the light of the late-day sun.  Piano music plays slowly.  The camera shows that the final red rose, is not going to be shown in front of a velvet red dress.  The limo drives away, leaving Chris standing there, very much alone.

Becca is in the limo.  Will she cry?  Beautiful scene of the Iowa landscape.  Nope, no crying yet.  She’s so together.  Now they show her talking.  She thinks she’s “in a state of shock.”  She says she can’t process it right now.

She asks if she will ever find the right person if it wasn’t him.  Don’t worry honey, you will, just give it some time.

We’re back from commercial.  A horse neighs, Chris S. lets out a deep sigh as he waits alone in the barn, his breath showing in the cold air.  Whitney is driving up in the limo as a haze hangs over the top of the corn fields on either side of the road.

Whitney is very nervous and is having trouble breathing as she talks to Chris H. outside of the barn.  He sends her in with his traditional “good luck.”

She knows what she wants, she says, but it’s a two-way street.  She’s in the barn with Chris S. now, and she’s shaking and breathing with difficulty.  She looks cute.  She’s talking to him like a girl who’s about to get married.  Saying how she feels and how much she feels for him and has enjoyed their journey.

“I love you so much,” she says and kisses him.  He sighs.  She looks down.

He takes his turn to talk.  He says one of the best days of his life was when she got out of the limo in the beginning, and they got to crash that wedding.  He says his family’s reaction to her told him a lot.  Their relationship is “so natural” and it “feels so perfect,”  long pause… “and that’s what I want for the rest of my life.”

She relaxes and is so happy!

“I love you,” “will you marry me?” he says down on one knee.  “Absolutely” she says, “oh my god.”  He puts on the ring, she looks at it and is like, yeah that’s good, jk lol!  And then she kisses him.

They kiss a bunch, then he laughs that crazy laugh… and they sit together talking and kissing on a hay bale lol!  They are sitting with their legs hanging out of the side of a big opening in the red barn wall.  So cute!  What a great setting for a sweet proposal.

And he gives her … the final rose!   Stay tuned for more live blogging from “After the Final Rose!”  Thanks for being here.

Here it is, “After the Final Rose!”

Chris H. and Chris S. are talking.  It sounds like things are going well between Chris and Whitney.  So, I’m not yet sure what the massive surprise is going to be!  Maybe they already got married?  Maybe she is pregnant?  Hmmm… who knows!  Stay tuned. 🙂

Chris H. asks S. about Becca.  Were you really in love with her?  He tries to answer but has some trouble.  He says there were some great things about her, but in the end she just wasn’t where he needed her to be for it to move forward.  He explains that he is 33 years old and she wasn’t really there yet.

Becca joins Chris S. on the “hot couch.”  She says it was really hard to watch that episode back.  She felt it was really difficult for her near the end.  He said, heck yeah, same for me.

She really respected him for how he handled things at the end.  They both appreciated each other’s honesty.  So IMPORTANT!

Becca talks about her not wanting to ever mislead Chris during the process.  He appreciated that.  Becca jokes that maybe it was crazy for her to come on a show like this without having ever been in love!  Chris H. makes a joke about that and everybody laughs.

Chris says that they had an undeniable chemistry from day one.  Becca says she is very thankful that the show really taught her what to look for and that she can be open to finding love and not be so closed off.  Chris H. says he doesn’t think that Becca will have any trouble finding love after this and they all laugh and she says thanks.

Whitney comes out and she and Chris S. talk.  She shows the camera the pretty ring that he got her, nice!  She’s wearing a super cool sheer dress covered in a silvery print.  Love good fashion.  They seem super happy together, what more could anyone ask for?!  I guess those darn rumors about him picking her were right after all!  You never know… I sure wish people wouldn’t give the endings of shows away though.

Aw… she is describing how the final moment, the proposal, made her feel.

[During this, yet another, commercial break I want to give a big shout out to my Bachelor fans, you guys are THE GREATEST!  Thanks for reading my blog!   I’d love to hear your feedback, let me know what you like, what you don’t and if there are any other shows you want to have me blog about.]

And, we’re back!  Whitney is telling Chris how she didn’t watch the show, except for their dates.  She explains that she wouldn’t want to see the man she is in love with dating other women, plus she lived it.  She feels “confident in what they have.”  Smart lady.  She says she really appreciated how he made sure that the other girls were NOT the right ones before picking her, and how that makes her more confident in what THEY have between them.

Omg his parents come walking up the road after the proposal.  They are so very happy; his mom is crying.  They look like a very happy group of people.  She talks about how they’re going to be making some babies pretty soon!  lol

Now back to our host, Chris H.  He picks out Ashley S. (the goofy, spacey, weird girl from the season, you know, the onion and the pomegranate…) and asks her about whether she will be on “Bachelor in Paradise” and she says, maybe… I guess that’s a big commitment from her lol.  🙂  It was pretty awkward.  I guess that show will have a lot of good stuff to blog about lol if it’s anything like last season’s!

OOOooo back to Whitney.  Chris H. busts her for visiting Chris S.’ family.  She broke the rules, but she had a good time doing it she says.  I wonder what her contract says about that…

Oh no lol it’s Jimmy Kimmel.  Sometimes he’s funny, sometimes he’s more weird and creepy… to each their own I guess!  Jimmy takes all of the credit for making this match happen, unless it doesn’t work out.  🙂  He is funny tonight, so far.

He points to Ashley S. and says she thinks she’s on “The Price is Right” right now. lol.  Chris S. lets out a big dolphin laugh at that one.  I feel waves crashing around me.

It must be crazy for Chris and Whitney to be sitting next to someone that famous.  I guess that’s what happens with reality tv!

Jimmy throws out a bunch of one-liners, one disses Chris and the crowd goes “ooooo.”  Jimmy has a surprise for them.  Is this the “shocking surprise?!”  It’s a huge black and white COW holy crap!  Jimmy says he has named it Juan Pablo.  LOL!  “He doesn’t speak any English,” he says.  Funny.  How are they going to get THAT back to their house lol?!

Ok we’re back from commercial.  Chris H. is about to announce the new Bachelorette.  Will this also be what was rumored?  He says “The Bachelor” staff were split down the middle and couldn’t decide, so they’re throwing it out to us.  The options are:  Britt or Kaitlyn.  From the crowd’s response here I guess it’s Kaitlyn.  Aw, I was hoping for Becca.  Oh well, I know I’ll end up watching anyway.

Ooo, WAIT!  Chris H. says there will be TWO BACHELORETTES!  Ok, is he serious?  No WAY?!  Ok, Chris H.  THAT ACTUALLY IS SHOCKING!!  Finally.  lol 🙂

He goes on to say that the 25 men will decide which girl they want to be the Bachelorette on the first night!  Hoooooooly cow!  lol He says “sometimes I’m actually being honest when I say it’s going to be a shocking moment.”  Yes, Chris, yes you are.

After that Chris H. chats with both girls.  At one point, Kaitlyn says that both of the girls will be in the hot tub together at some point…. hmmm, the boys are all in now!

Gotta mention Kaitlyn’s dress, WOW gorgeous.  Very sparkly.  Britt’s is too.  Nice.

Chris reports “heated debates” behind the scenes about the two girls they were choosing between.  Well, I think it’s led to an interesting twist in the show.  Way to keep things interesting guys and gals over there at ABC!  Thanks for the entertainment, we are enjoying following it along with you all.

Chris H. signs off and reminds us that “Bachelor in Paradise” will air again this summer and we’d all better be there!

Have a great night all, thanks for following along with me, I hope that you enjoyed reading this LONG blog lol!  🙂  Take care of yourselves.

[Note, I’m watching Jimmy Kimmel on his show now.  He did a  funny bit on how they make the kissing sounds for each type of kiss on T.B.  Ok, I guess he’s funny 😉  I wish I had that job!  lol That would be fun.]
