I have been waiting for last night ever since this seasons Bachelorette started with Jillian Harris being the star. For some reason this was one of the most exciting seasons for me and I was just really feeling all the guys and Jillian being so out going and fun. I definitely had my favorite men but as it got nearer to the end, I was definitely rooting for Ed and sure enough, Ed was the winner! Ed won Jillian’s heart over after being put through so many hard and emotional situations, but at least they have conquered all!
Originally I was a true fan of Jesse and Jake. They were given the boot early on thought so I quickly found a new love for Reid once he started opening up. Once he relaxed you were really able to see what a nice and genuine guy Reid was and I feel bad for him because Jillian gave quite a hard time about him not being able to express himself. All she had to do though is look into his eyes and she would have seen what he felt was true.
In any event, once Reid was not given a rose and had to leave, there was only really one guy that overall made sense and that was Ed. Really, it was Ed all along and even though I had my other favorites, once I saw the hidden clips of Ed when drunk, he took the cake. Not because I saw him drunk and I like my men drunk, the opposite. However, he was an adorable drunk and it made you really see the child inside Ed and what a relaxed, fun-loving, cute and calm guy he was. He was there to find love, and he found it fair and square.
Yes there was the fact that Ed left early on in the season because he had to go back to work, but I think he had to do that to realize how into Jillian he was. Had he chosen to stay in the game, I don’t think he would have fully committed and put everything into it like he did once he was back. I think Ed’s escape back to work helped Jillian and Ed be together in the end.
Jillian picked the right guy, and I have a feeling they will last. I hope so anyway. This is the first time in a long while where there has actually been a proposal at the final rose ceremony that has at least lasted till it was shown on television. Ed is smart, funny, handsome, well balanced guy and I don’t think there is any ounce of him that will think twice about what has happened and what has gone on.
So what now? Well last night, they were finally allowed to be seen in public after the final rose ceremony. Check out some pics from GossipCenter of how the happy couple enjoyed each others company for the first time in public, and finally allowing to share their excitement and laughs with one another.
I wish you all the best Jillian and Ed, and even though I am sad Ed is off the market – I know you guys will be very happy!
