Somehow I found myself caught up in, of all things, the Bachelorette finale. It’s odd to me the lengths to which people will go to believe something is real when it isn’t. During the final date, Deanna Pappas and Jesse Csincsak were on an island in the Bahamas and one of them actually said “it was just the two of us on our own island.” Yeah, just the two of them and the producers and the director and the camera crew! I mean, come on. Most people think that Jesse was just some nice old honest fellow when the truth is the guy is looking to make the move to TV. I found this article where he talks about being on a reality show and how it made him so much more money than snowboarding. It’s so obvious both Deanna and Jesse are looking to cash in here. They happen to like each other, maybe, but this exchange really shows you what it’s all about, doesn’t it:

DeAnna, is there one thing about Jesse that drives you insane?
DEANNA: [Laughing] He’s always been single, you know, so he has his routine first thing when he wakes up in the morning and all he does is get up, make coffee, and sit down in front of the computer to start answering e-mails and doing his business, and that drives me up the wall. I’m like, geesh ‚Äî get up and get awake first before you start ignoring me.

How about you, Jesse?
JESSE: The one thing is that she’s a very busy and popular woman and she’s on her phone either e-mailing, texting, or talking, and trying to carry on a conversation with her while she’s doing that drives me insane.

How excited are you that ABC gave you that honeymoon gift to go to Greece?
DEANNA: We’re ecstatic. It’s always been a dream of mine to get to Greece, and I would love to go with my entire family, and this just makes it that much better. It was a long, hard road, and the outcome is just better than I could ever imagine, and that ABC gave us that gift is awesome.

There is a moment in every relationship when the guy hops right out of bed in the morning to go on the computer and check his email but the first two months in, even six months in, isn’t that time. I’d be very wary if I were Deanna. On the other hand, she is the one who dumped the guy who really was looking for love, poor old sad sack Jason. I didn’t think she would pick him only because he seemed so overly needy and confident that he could win her over. But the truth is, if marriage and family was what she really wanted? Jason was her guy. If cashing in big time on her persona and her relationship then her wedding then her birth (like Trista and Ryan!) the camera-craving, media whoring Jesse is her man. I mean, come on, people. Don’t fall for it. Not only did people fall for it but already there are scads of Jesse and Deanna love videos on YouTube.

Dudes, they already have their own site, www.DeAnnaAndJesse.com. And he has pics of her all over his Myspace. Zomg. These are two very ambitious, very media-friendly and willing whores, folks. I like them okay and I don’t begrudge anyone the opportunity to make a good living but the pretense of it is what bothers me I guess. Think of the cash that’s gonna start pouring in. Here is a taste from their website:
