The Bachelor - 2009

I am pretty stoked for the season premiere of "The Bachelor" on ABC this coming January. I have had a love-hate relationship with the show since it's debut years ago, but this past winter - found me bored and in the middle of nowhere (haha - home) on the couch in the evenings a lot & I had the opportunity to re-engage the show.
I immediately fell in love with Deanna - eagerly tuning in each week to see who was getting a rose & who was going the end she chose Jesse over Jason...I liked both guys so I wasn't really rooting for one more than the other...

As it has turned out & as it has with a lot of the seasons...Deanna and Jesse will not be making it down the isle in 2009 as announced - the pair ultimately called off their engagement this past November *SIGH* I mean, I really can't imagine why it is so hard to make a relationship work when they knew each other for SO LONG and got to spend SO MUCH time together ;)

ANYWAY!!! As luck would have it, the Bachelor who's proposal was turned down i.e. Jason Mesnick has been chosen to be the new Bachelor...Jason is a single father from Seattle, Washington & I just found him to be absolutely adorable last year - ERGO - I am super excited to watch his journey from the other side of the "game."

Apparently, he has announced to the world that he did find LOVE during the taping of his season and is engaged....hmmm...only time will tell...I hope for the very best for him, but as history does tend to repeat itself - we'll have to tune in to see if it lasts through the "after the finale show" :)

I know...I'm kind of excited to see the premiere too! I really like him and hoped that Deanna picked him over the skier guy! :)

We should have an online blog contest after the first show to see who everyone thinks he will pick and fall in love with!!

Have a great evening!!

Yeah, I know....those two knew each other for what a couple of months. Why didn't it work out :)

I'm glad you have a show to look forward too in the winter months ahead. We can't wait for 24 and Lost to start again :)
