    Oh, I do think the people part of this show whisper things in the guys ears to get them to do things they normally wouldn't do or say. No doubt about that. However, Jake is really a nice guy. However, a lot of his fans are really going to be hurt and who likes watching that? I know I don't!

    Even though I believe Jake was brought on to be the next TB, I'm with you, atem. I wouldn't wish that on anyone. Jake has a certain child-like quality about him, and I think it stinks big time if they used him this way.

The previews really show Wes as the bad guy, and the producers always like to twist things, so I think last week's bad-guy setup was a farce and this week's show will actually portray Jake as the moron instead.

    Jake suddenly knows Wes has a girlfriend named Laurel. He tells this to Jillian with 100% faith that it's a CERTAINTY. I believe the producers called Jake & told him that and requested he come back to be filmed spilling the beans to Jillian. Jake, thinking the producers are telling him the truth, agrees to tell it to Jillian.

    Jake shows up at Jillian's room and does what TPTB told him to do. Then Wes shows up. Wes categorically denies it. It's a showdown: Jake accuses, Wes denies. Jillian doesn't know who to believe. Wes says Jake is just there to get more screentime 'cuz he wants to be the next Bachelor. Jillian says goodbye to Jake and escorts him out, then continues her scheduled date with Wes. Wes convinces her the accusations are false. Jake stands outside in the hallway, crying, embarrassed and sad.

    Jake, who has spent the entire season as the gorgeous kind-hearted respectable love-seeking man is now portrayed as a stalking headcase, even though he only came back once at TPTB's request.

    I see this whole thing really coming off as a negative for Jake's reputation. It makes me sad.

    (Wes' reputation I don't care about since he agreed to a publicity stunt, not to a marriage-seeking show. Doesn't matter to me if he changed once he got there -- it's original intent that counts, in my book.)
    I have a feeling that they won't be throwing Jake under the bus to make Wes look any better, as they have spent the past six episodes presenting Jake as the golden guy and cultivating him as the next Bachelor, while convincing us Wes is the devil. Why change now? If you look on other websites (not this one), Jake is overwhelmingly revered as Sir Lancelot and Jill is being called an idiot for having the nerve to prefer Wes over him. Even ABC's recap is in on it.

    I suspect that Jake will be shown as the noble warrrior who try as he might, just can't save the flaky and shallow princess from the cad or herself, so as to make women clamor even more for him to be the next Bachelor. JMO.

    Do we now for sure if he work with ASA airlines? Because they don't fly into an airport near where he lives...the closest is a few hours away. Just curious.

    It's just a game she's playing. She was obviously VERY into Jake at the beginning. Just a game, and once the challenge is over, she's on to new challenges. Poor Jake, he didn't deserve to be discarded like that on a whim.

    Jake most likely is not perfect, but wow he sure seems like a nice guy and I would love to watch him as the Bachelor.
    And maybe she is very into him at the end as well.
    He was hard to let go ...
    Treats her like Gold
    May love her to death....
    Just a wild guess and someone will prove this wrong.

    I think Jake is such a gentleman. He only did what he did to defend Jillian, because I feel he truly cared. I also believe Jake knew alot of what these guys' intentions were, as he was around them more than Jillian.

    I think Jake had better learn to deliver his lines and sobs more convincingly if he's to land a starring role in Fleiss's soap opera.

    DH jumped up and said this whole show is a set up! He did this when Ed came back, with the line "I couldn't stop thinking about you" or whatever he said. The first time he listened to Wes talk he said that guy is not telling the truth! (He didn't like Jason at all)
    But he thought Jake was an okay guy. Jake does look like a real concerned nice guy in this episode, to me. Hopefully, he will find a girl who will really appreciate him!


    DH won't watch at all anymore, not even the few minutes I could talk him into each time.

    i like jake, and still do, but didn't care for his need to tell jillian the truth. he should have told her before being let go. i assume TPTB proposed the idea to him and he went with it. for me it was an awkward situation to watch b/c i like jake, and i knew in the end she was going to go with wes anyway.

    I like Jake even if I think he is too safe and stiff,but when he was saying that he had to protect Jillian I kept screaming that she was a grown woman and didn't need him to protect her.God that was so heavily scripted!
