Should we, on the other hand, be outraged or disgusted if it is Jake because we don't like Jake and really don't approve of his final choice?
My point then became that the heart throb of the show posed nude in a movie - with a still shot clearly proving it - yet he purported to be a family man ( I am most certainly not arguing that Gilles loves his wife and children ), and yet we saw NO discrepancies, and we (me included) certainly never said one word about him running out into the audience to hug and kiss his wife.
If it is all right for Gilles to do it with the discrepancies in his background, then it has to be all right for ANY of the other contestants - not just Jake - with any discrepancies that they might have in their background.
