Hello all! This is my first post, so please be kind. I was just listening to the Dan Patrick show on the radio and he had Jesse on. This is just a quick recap of what he said.
His agent first contacted Jesse's parents to get their feel of the idea of him being the Bachelor before he actually presented the idea to Jesse. His family is very excited and approve completely. The NY Giants organization did not have anything negative to say about him agreeing to do the shoe. He is throwing a big party for his teammates and their wives tomorrow night at his house. He said the team hasn't really given him a hard time but he thinks it will start once everything is on TV.
He says that the dates were the best part of the show. He took the girls on local dates and dates out of the country just as other Bachelor's have done. He says that ABC spared no expense when it came to the dates. They were very elaborate. Filming was in January and February. He was asked if it was important for the girl he chose to like football and he said that it didn't matter just as long as she could sit through a game and pretend to like it. He was also asked how much reality he felt was in the show. He said that there was alot of reality. He was completely himself and that is what he is most proud of. He says he was concerned that he not embarass his team or his family. Dan Patrick what the most creative thing was that someone has done to get him to spill the beans. He said that people will talk about things using the girls names or something and if he answers without giving corrections they think they have it right. He says that people are acting like attorneys.
** Just a little side note. Jesse sounds very intelligent. He comes across as a guy that is far more mature than 25 years old. I know that it has been a concern of some people on some boards because of his age. This is the first time I have heard him speak and he sounded very mature. I think that this show is going to be very unlike the others. I can't wait until tomorrow **
