I'm not sure what show you saw, but the (shown) kisses between Tara & Jesse were DEFINITELY more hot than the kisses between Jessica & Jesse. Jesse & Tara lingered a lot more, while Jessica's were tigher and more perfunctory, not as slow and intimate as those with Tara.Originally Posted by Marlap59
So okay, now in hindsight we know Jessica won. But based solely on the footage shown of Tara/Jesse, Tara sure had good reason to believe she'd be the final one.
And in response to the people who've posted that Tara was so nervous because she knew she was gonna be dumped on national TV, I say hogwash. For someone of Tara's nature, a dumping would not make you puke. If you knew of it ahead of time, you'd be sad or perturbed but you wouldn't be puking. The puking was a sure sign that she did NOT anticipate Jesse's dumping. She walked up to him that night with her maximum willingness level.
And then slap-in-the-face rejection as a result. But that's the nature of the game, right? I don't know about you guys but I'm a little turned off by season after season of hurting people. I think it's time for a more humane, respectful format for the contestants. Something like: they're allowed up to 10 episodes to pick their fiance, but the sooner they do it, the more extravagent the honeymoon... Then if the engagement fails, ABC is out nothing, but if the contestent did a good job picking their solemate, they get something.
That way there'd be no mandatory stringing-people-along solely for the sake of the show schedule, but the star would have good reason to make an authentically good (not haphazard) choice of fiance'.
