Do you think Jake Pavelka made a major mistake?
Could this be the most shocking conclusion to ABC’s The Bachelor ever? On tonight’s tension-taut finale, Jake Pavelka broke 23 hearts — or more like 23 MILLION — when he actually chose to propose to Vienna Girardi over Tenley Molzhan.
That’s Vienna, of course, the Florida vixen whose unsavory past became a gossip cottage industry unto itself!
How did it all go down? First, Jake had to let go of Tenley. “I love that we have the same morals, the same values and the same temperment. Just your positivity, you’re just perfect — but I don’t know what it is, something just doesn’t feel right,” Jake told Tenley as he dumped her.
And Jake wasn’t above a bit of misdirection at the moment of maximum suspense. He left us thinking he might dump Vienna too when he returned a promise ring she’d just given him … only to replace it with the engagement ring. Oh. Em. Jesus Christ, Jake.
“I think you’re an amazing woman, absolutely amazing,” he told Vienna. “I love you. I love you with everything that I am.”
And then he got down on one knee, and asked her to marry him. “Oh my God,” said Vienna. “Yes, yes.” Cue “On the Wings of Love”
And is Bachelor reject Ali Fedotowsky, 25, the next to find true love? She’ll sure be trying as the new Bachelorette … stay tuned!
