Well, I haven't heard too much about CH's blog but I found his comparison of Aaron & Gwen to Ali & Jake interesting--
What I find most interesting is that in The Bachelor's "where are they now 2008" Aaron said that he wished he'd spent more time with Gwen (and Brooke but we know that ship has sailed as she's married) and that who knows where they'd be if he had. [The clip can be found on u tube.] Interesting comparison for CH to make, I think.Seeing Ali and Jake together again was very interesting. If you’re an old-school Bachelor fan you’ll remember season 2’s Women Tell All. In that show, our Bachelor Aaron confronted a woman he let go named Gwen. You could tell that there was love there, everybody felt it, but for some reason life just got in the way and it didn’t happen.
Yes, I think Jake is in love. I think he was in love with Ali when she left; I think he was in love with her when he told her not to come back (hence his quote of forcing himself to move on w/o her; and I think he's still in love with her now. [And, yes, I fully know I'm drinking the wonky punch ] but that's okay... I like punch!
