    Jake just tweeted that:

    Jimmy Kimmel was awesome @jimmykimmel
    6 minutes ago via mobile web

    I didn't even know he was going to be on JK today. Too bad JK didn't have some of the latest on Jake to ask him about.

    No way to know if that picture is recent or not. My bet is that it is not.

    Here on the East Coast, Jimmy's monologue just finished. I believe he and Vienna are on after Queen Latifah, if I heard right. Was only half paying attention to the TV, sorry!

    Jake actually let V do almost all the talking and sit in the chair next to JK... I guess they must have read the boards about what was said about him dominating everything in the other interviews

    You know, I was just thinking about this while changing the sheets on the bed (yay.) What is it about this particular show, the Bachelor and Bachelorette, that inspires this much tabloid attention? I mean, it's not the first reality tv show that has "scandals" - there have been pretty memorable characters in many other shows. But for some reason, this show brings out all the ex-girlfriends, and ex-boyfriends/husbands, old friends, etc, who seem willing to air all kinds of dirty laundry and past hurts for all the world to see. Is it because whenever you have a relationship, and it breaks up, it's often at the expense of one of the people in it...ie. you have someone with hurt feelings. Sometimes relationships end on a mutual note, but often someone is hurt and angry. When they see this person who hurt them go on a reality tv show about "love" they want to strike back and damage the person publicly. If Jake or Vienna were a contestant on TAR or Survivor, do you think any of the ex's would come forward like this, or the tabloids would be so eager for their story? It's just something I've been mulling over.

    It seems to be going from bad to worst, too. With Jason/Molly/Melissa it was mainly the love triangle, but nobody really came forward from their past to disparage them. Then we had Jill and Ed, and the big Bethany/Lindsay story that dominated the front covers for a few weeks. Now we have Jake and Vienna, with people from each of their pasts coming out with "bombshells" about them that they want to share. I guess the whole thing just feels icky now, to me, so much so that I am questioning why I watch this and post on these boards. I feel like I'm complicit in the whole thing, like I'm helping to perpetuate it.

    Where will it end? Do we really think Ali will get off easily, that she'll have the fairy tale season and ending? If the ratings are as good as they have been and having people like Fleiss and CH saying that scandal sells, I just see more of the same in the future, until every season ends with people being basically crucified. I wonder that anyone would want to do this show. Unless they really are ALL just fame-ho's who don't care about the negativity, they just want to be on tv and be famous. I don't buy anymore the basic premise of the show, the "I am here to find the person I will spend the rest of my life with" line of bull they throw out every season. It's not about that any more. It's about ratings and scandal.
    Probably not. Ali is in for some tough times, I think. I think we agree that Jake is a puppet, and now in interviews he is already throwing Ali under the bus. His story has changed from loving her as a friend for life ... to a instigator who hurt his princess and needs to grow up. His interviews sound like they must be on a set course. While I do believe Jake is perfectly capable of making a fool of himself without any help ... I do think this course is being set by MF/ABC to hold public interest and have us all anticipating the next season assuring those ratings.

    I think he did that already in an interview this season, right after the Ali/Vienna feud started to show in the edit. I can't remember if it was ET or somewhere else. I distinctly remember him saying that the other girls were "bad mouthing Vienna, and now Ali is in on it (loosely quoted)". He seemed really down about it. I think Jake saw the writing on the wall during the process, and he also saw some things play out on his TV screen. I doubt that Jake would have taken Ali back, after she left, whether the phone call was staged or not. It was pretty clear that, while he acted all torn up, he wasn't that torn up over Ali leaving.

    If anyone even gives a hoot at this point, you can go back and look it up. It was a video interview, not a transcript.

    Re: Bachelor 14 - Media Articles and Interviews

    Short recap of the Jake & Vienna JK interview, hitting the main points only:

    -JK held up the tabs and some faked covers as well. Vienna told her usual jokes about them and giggled.

    -Vienna says they saw each other every two weeks. (Umm, I thought it was every week? )

    -Jake talked about his disguise. Brother bought him a handlebar mustache from Austin, and Jake would wear it to the mall so he wouldn't get recognized. Because he's a big "stah", doncha know.

    -Vienna says she talks to Jake's mom, "like, twice a day."

    -Vienna said a lady booed her while she was walking down a street (Rodeo Dr, maybe? Can't recall) in L.A. Said she wanted to pop the lady's tire.

    -JK, Vienna, and Jake laughing about his conversation with Tenley, re: physical chemistry and sexual chemistry. Jake laughs it up and says "Yeah, they're the same. I was trying to take the high road and not crush her."

    -JK says something like the difference in that area was with Vienna compared to Tenley, he wanted to fool around with Vienna. Don't remember the exact wording, but Jake moved in his hand in a "Yeah, sorta" fashion and laughed. Giggles from Vienna.

    Just one big fest, basically. JK brought embarrassing stuff up, but Jake didn't have to be a clod. Could've just not commented on that.

    Tenley and the other 23 women dodged a big fat bullet. The man has no sense of decorum, whatsoever.
