I don't know about you guys, but I much prefer seeing happy couples and nice people on reality shows - esp ones like the bach franchise that are about love - than seeing SUPER DUPER annoying and hateful drama kings and queens all the time. I love seeing Ashley happy at the end, for instance, and the thing with Ames, but the thought of seeing Vienna on the screen sometimes makes me not watch until I'm ready to handle it!
Why do producers think we like that crap so much? I mean, sure, some is fine. But get us some really compatible people on these shows for once instead of a bunch of jerks and losers. Then we'd have REAL drama: who can win the girl by being the awesomest guy of all of them?
Yeah, I do like some drama, too. But the boring Bach shows aren't boring just because there's no drama... they're boring because we don't really know what the Bach/ette is really thinking, and if love really is happening or if its just the fancy locations that cause the feelings to be there. The last show is always the best to me because the love really does actually happen.
Now, if we had a less sleazy, bitchy version of BP, where it was really about getting ppl together instead of tearing them apart, I'd love that! The relationships that formed would be more genuine. And more of them, with more ppl!
IK Jackie was clearly upset last night but I have to give Ames kudos for not stringing her along if he knew they wouldn't work out. It's just as easy to know when you're not meant to be as when you are...

I totally agree that it's best not to string someone along if you have no interest.
However, something seemed really amiss last night.
Jackie looked like she was in a great deal of pain. It seems as if Ames did not tell her anything.
And, sorry but much as I liked him on the Bachette, he seems like he's not at all good at dealing with things like this. He could have said something / anything to assuage Jackie and the viewers, but just seemed to stare blankly in space. I expected more from him and was extremely disappointed..
