The Bachelor - Jake Pavelka
On Monday's The Bachelor finale, 32-year-old Jake Pavelka will choose his ultimate co-pilot. Should he give his final rose to Vienna, the wild-child who has been a fixture in recent tabloids? Or to Tenley, a good-natured recent divorcee whose competitors joke she dreams in Disney characters? Should he give another chance to Ali, who left for her job and then tried to return? Or should he...
The Bachelor, Chris Harrison, Rozlyn
Rule No. 1 for reality show contestants: Don't mess with the host. The Bachelor's Chris Harrison took aim at what he called the "classless, tactless" tactics of booted contestant Rozlyn Papa after she claimed during Monday's "Women Tell All" episode that Harrison once hit on a producer's wife. Other contestants don't put much stock in anything she says: Papa was kicked off the show after the other women accused her of having a physical relationship with a Bachelor staffer during filming — something the single mother swore on her son's life never happened. (As some in the studio audience gasped.) Harrison said he wouldn't dignify Papa's claims with a response, but he's more than happy to talk about the Bachelor's final pick: "Jake is very much in love with who he's chosen," Harrison said.
With Brooke convinced that Alex and Julian slept together, she's on a rampage to get revenge. Her first mission succeeds: As the costume designer, she dresses up the lead in Julian's film as the "lovechild between Richard Simmons and a Village Person." She's further enraged when she hears Alex on the phone gushing about her sexcapades, which ends in a full on knock-out punch care of Brooke's fist and Alex's eye. Finally, Alexander, Brooke's new co-worker, sets her straight and admits that he was the one sleeping with Alex. Brooke realizes she's been a fool and "bitched out the one man who makes my world turn." But as she talks through it all with her mom — it's still weird to see the two close — she's reminded that the best part of the entire situation is that Julian did not ever sleep with Alex. Brooke apologizes to Alex and goes to find Julian. "I'm in love with you, Julian, I always will be ... Love is crazy and I've been crazy," she says to him. And then he finally kisses her. The kicker of the storyline is that although Alexander slept with Alex, he's actually the man Victoria has had a thing with. He tries to explain that she's different and that he slept with Alex but likes Victoria. So, she smacks him — and then kisses him. What do you think of this new coupling?
If you still have questions about what happened with The Bachelor's Rozlyn and a member of the production team, you'll soon find out. That's the word from host Chris Harrison, who promises Monday's women-tell-all episode will include more of the ousted competitor's "antics" and "desperate attempts to get 15 more minutes of fame." Harrison says the episode will also explore what might have been with Jake Pavelka and the departed Ali, adding, "feelings are still there."
