I just want to say, Pink Princess, that you hit the nail on the head with this post.

She was all over Jason like white on rice, and it was obvious as heck who she wanted to see at the end of this show, and it wasn't Adam, no matter how sweet and wonderful and romantic and adorable Adam was (bc he IS!), it was all about chemistry. It's a shame, but that's the truth.
Thank you for your candor!

Amen! Adam was NOT an average Joe. He wasn't even *that* ugly, although his voice grated my nerves.

the reason that her decision seemed "superficial" was not ONLY because she chose the "pretty" boy...but also, and moreso, because FROM WHAT WE WERE SHOWN, there was nothing going on between those two that would have created anything other than a physical relationship. There were no real meaningful conversations...nobody put themselves on the line...no kind or thoughtful gestures other than to swap spit.
Adam just seemed more real. The time they spent together seemed more substantial. No, I don't think Melana should have picked someone she wasn't attracted to. But I just couldn't SEE any reason that she would have picked Jason other than his looks...because that's all we saw, her talking about, or telling him, how "gorgeous" he is.
At the end, she says that he is both sweet and gorgeous...the "total package" she calls it. It sounds like a kinda empty package to me. There are so many more levels to a person, and so much more that most people consider to be part of the "package". Maybe it's just me...
I was not impressed by Adam's comments about Danielle. It was a definite example of poor judgement that did not fit with what we had seen and known of Adam to that point. However, what Zach said did not surprise me, or anyone else, because that type of behavior was true and congruent to what we had seen and known of him to that point. Whether you choose to admit it or not, there is a difference.

Am I the only one who was disappointed with the finale? There was no suspense the entire show. When it came on, you knew that she was going to pick Jason. Everything they showed Melania saying about adam was very general (ie. Anyone would think he was perfect) as opposed to Jason making her heart flutter!
Furthermore, the more I watched this show, I wondered why they made Melania seem so vapid! Couldn't they have edited it so she at least looked a little more likeable????

It was a good idea bringing in the hot guys
If it was just the average joe's she would've had to pick one no matter what
It would've never worked out once the show was over
Plus, people that go on these type of shows probably want fame afterwards so this Jason guy would probably be dumped by Melana if someone say Colin Ferell, Eminem , Josh Harnett showed any interest in her

Im tired of people using the word "chemisty" to describe why Melana chose Jason. Believe it or not there are a lot of people out there who look at the whole package when choosing a romantic partner and believe that "chemistry" can developed over time as you get to know someone and what makes them special. Sure you want to be physically attracted to somebody but there is nothing wrong with Adam in that department. He is at worse on the upper end of average looks wise. Then you add to the fact that he is extremely successful and has a sterling personality it just does not compute to some that she would pick Jason over him. How long is a relationship based mostly on looks going to last anyway? Not very long. Most mature people consider the whole package when choosing. Malena is not a very mature person. Adam will do better though so its moot to even worry about it. I dont think Melana is a bad person just very immature and doesnt know what to look for beside good looks when making romantic choices. I dont think there is anything wrong with Jason either I just think he is a pretty face and nothing much else. Very bland personality with very little going on upstairs. In a way they are probably a perfect match.

I just wanted to strangle Melana for not realizing what a great catch Adam would be!! Instead she had to go for a 'superficial' relationship...
we all know she's shallow, cause all that was keeping her from picking Adam was because Adam wasn't that good looking, to her, that is....
to me, Adam was far better looking than the both of M and J combined... his personality just makes him shine even more!!
Good luck to Adam and his future... (hopefully, more on TV)
I think i'm going to have a case of Adam-withdrawal soon!! so bring him back NBC!! before i go nuts!!

I was very amused by the preview of AJ2....that beauty queen was raving furious when she saw the geek lineup! Dear God, these guys were GROSS! Especially the one with the flyaway frizz who is certain he's in love. This show is so pathetic, I think I'd rather watch a train wreck.
