    Unfortunately for Wes he did not have the forthought to take away the announcement of his summer tour before doing the show. Wes also does not appear at all interested in Jillian but more interested in the competition. He may very well be a nice guy to his friends however he is not coming across as one on tv. When a man sits alone in a chair looking at his drink or the floor while the woman that all the guys are there to get to know walks into the room, it is a very clear sign. I am glad that Wes' friend is trying to defend him, however I think that if the situation was looked at as how outside people see it then they may understand what our issue is with Wes.

    Just for Kasha, Wes played that song 3 times tonight. I know she was so thrilled.

    If he plays and sings one more time I think I am going to throw up. He seems like a total fake. I would not spend a penny on one of his cd's. I do not even like to look at him. I turn away from the screen when he is on. I will definitely mute my tv on his HTD. Do not want to see him or hear him. Gag, enough already. What is wrong with Fleiss?

    I swear had they played it a fourth, I would have gouged my ears out.

    I wish Wes would take his lyre and ride off into the sunset...or into a hail storm.

    UGH!

    I am glad to know I am not the only one that felt this way about him singing his song so many times tonight. It did however inspire me to grab some string cheese out of the fridge. I am sure Wes is a nice guy, but I just don't see it with him and Jillian.

    I have know Wes for 20 years. We grew up together. We were good friends growing up and we have kept in touch over the years. He is easy going and is very talented. He figured out pretty early on what he wanted to do with his life and country music has been his passion ever since.

    I don't chime in much at all but I wanted to point out something important. He is getting the "everyone hates ...." edit. I am sure the guys got along with him. I am sure that he is just as close with them as other guys from other seasons are, but made to look as though they aren't. If you pay attention, most of the time when the guys are talking bad about him they don't actually mention his name. They say things like..."he's a dbag" or "I just don't think he is here for the right reasons". Those general comments are filmed and inserted about anyone as stock sound bites. They could have shown the guy saying that and flash a video of President Obama for context and people think...oh that's who he is talking about. Oddly enough people would start chatting about how much the guys don't like our president! Funny thing is, those guys were just repeating phrases for the producers so they could use them anytime, anywhere, on anyone. Other times, the guy was talking about someone else, but didn't use the guys name. Producers love that because then they can use it anywhere for anyone and just add something else for context. It's all about editing. Every now and then a guy will use someone's name in a comment. However, just as often, those guys are just giving sound bites because they know that will get aired. To illustrate the point, this entire paragraph you thought I was talking about Wes, merely because the preceding paragraph was about him. But, I didn't mention his name once (in this paragraph) so you were lead to believe I was. Editing and context directs your attention and controls your perception. Really is quite amazing what they can do! Or at least, how they can make things appear.

    Knowing Wes they way I do, I can offer some insight. He speaks his mind. You won't find him running around behind the other guys whispering about them. He is direct. Honest. Loyal. And one of the funniest people I know. Girls find him very charming because he is a southern guy with manners but he also is quick to just be himself around anyone. There is no pretense about him.

    So what if he brought his guitar on the show. They search for guys with talents to go on the show. The better the talent, the more they try to make the guys look like they are hating on him or that they are there for the wrong reasons. In the end, I find it interesting that people who support Jillian (or any "star" of the show) and then turn around and say that some guy went on the show for the wrong reason, don't see the inherent contradiction. On the one hand you say this girl is so amazing and so great, but then on the other hand you turn around and say that the guy couldn't possibly like her and must be there for the wrong reasons because he has something going on! Huh? If you like someone so much, don't you want them to be with someone who has the charisma and passion to be successfull in something they love?

    It's the guys who go on the show claiming to be a pro in something and then give it up to become something else that I would be more concerned about (if I wanted to bother with giving anyone a hard time at all, which I don't). I think you will see that Wes continues with his passion with country music like he has for many years now.
    It is refreshing to read your post. I agree with what you said. It boggles my mind as to why they only think Wes is there with an agenda. Why aren't they suspicious of the other guys. We hear there are three with girlfriends, it seems to me we just have guys that wear smiles on their face and carry around this nice guy front, but as the song goes, smiling faces, smiling faces tells lies. I think Jason is a good example of that. That's one thing I like about Wes, he's straight forward, what you see is what you get, unlike the others, I would have to wonder will another personality show up later. That's one reason why these relationship doesn't last, their are one way on the show and another after.
