We start with voice overs from Jason – I’m just a regular guy, a single dad, loved everything about this, no regrets, would love to spend his life with DeAnna. I saw it too, but after hearing the rumors all weekend, I think I watched this episode with a more jade, maybe a more open eye. I saw a love story, Jason’s love story! Jason fell in love!
The voice overs from Jesse – he was the skinny white kids, the snowboarder, so far out of her league, not her typical type of guy, a strong friendship first, opened up at the HTD and has no regrets. I still don’t see a love story here, I see a friendship, but I can’t see love.
DeAnna house in Neuman -
Jason arrives with flowers for DeAnna and her sister and a basket of wine for her father, okay now if that isn’t class, I don’t know what is! DeAnna’s dad says they are going to grill him, and Jason says that if he was the dad he would be grilling him too, he does tell that his wife left him for another guy, that he has Ty most of the time, and that Ty is thereason he almost didn’t do the show. Crissy talks to Jason, and he tells her that he wouldn’t be here if he wasn’t in love. Thomas, DeAnna’s brother talks to her and says that he feels that Jason is in the same point in his life that she is, wants to be settled down. Jason and Greg, DeAnna’s dad have time alone, and he asks if he could marry her, Greg tells him that no one has ever asked that before, that deAnna thinks he is special and that Jason has his blessing if she thinks he is the one, and that Jason would fit in well with the family. Greg tells DeAnna that Jason is a gem of a guy and a really good catch.
Jesse arrives with a gift bag and a haircut, to which her dad is pleased, about the haircut. he is so nervous and scared. Greg grills Jesse and he admits that he lived with a girlfriend for 2 years but they grew apart, Greg asks him what happens after the butterflies, do you see yourself staying? Basically he was asking if he was ready to commit, long term, once and done. Crissy talks with DeAnna and says that she doesn’t feel like she knows Jesse, with Jason he opned up so much more and she felt like she did know him. She also asks DeAnna can you really see yourself having kids with this guy? Crissy can see the love in Jason’s ees for her, she doesn;t see the love with Jesse….which is what the rest of us have all be seeing all season! Finalyl DeAnna and her dad have a tlka and he asks her if Jesse is in thesame place as her, the confessions from Jason felt more heartfelt and real than from Jesse, Jason asked for her hand, Jesse didn’t. dad realyl liked Jason and felt like he was more in love with DeAnna than Jesse. i think dad is right Jason is fulling in love with DeAnna, the thing I am finally noticing was, is DeAnna in love with Jason?
Next Day at her Dad’s house – Those in attendance, Greg, Thomas and Crystal, Crissy, her aunt and uncle, her grandma and grandpa.
Jesse arrives with a potted plant, and before they have time to settle in, Jason arrives, again with flowers and wine. Jason has a talk with the grandparents and tells them she is everything he could ever want, they really like him, in fact grandma says she will tell DeAnna to pick him. Crissy and Crystal talk with Jesse and finally get a feeling about him, he’s a hometown guy, cool, and they advise him to be himself. Jesse gets some time alon with Greg, and he does ask this time to marry her, to which greg asks if he is ready? Again Jesse mentions the butterflies, but you know they won’t last forever, real life will get in the way. Greg jsut wants her to be happy and to make sure she gets the best, then he tells Jesse that when he is with his daughter, to keep the hair short!
After the guys leave, DeAnna sits down with her sister Crissy, and her sister-in-law Crystal and asks them to be brutally honset. I think this is were all the answers are found. Crissy is worried that maybe Jesse isn’t ready for marriage, that he hasn’t had enought time to be free and learn what he wants. Crissy see DeAnna as being fully ready to settle down and start a family, and she sees that with Jason. Crystal on the other hand says that she knows DeAnna thinks she is ready but she thinks DeAnna is stil ltoo much of a free spirit and not ready to settle down, she tells her that you are not as settled as you think you are. That is thw whole ball of wax, is she realyl ready to settle down, have a family and be a mom, or is she still a free spirit that needs more time…
Back in the Grand Bahamas, she finds out that Jeremy wants to talk to her. She would rather run away and not talk to him, but she can’t do that, she has to talk to him, make sure that he understands. DeAnna tells him that on paper, he is perfect, but that on paper is not good enough, it has to be in her heart and she isn;t feeling in her heart. She has too much respect for him to lead him on or promise him something she can;t give him. It was very emotional.
Last Chance Dates:
- Jesse is up first and the take a sea plane to a secluded island and do nothing for the day. He makes a book of thoughts for her which includes pictures and comments of their time together. He tells her that he is ready to settle down and spend the rest of his live with her.
- Jason comes running up to the boat, his face all aglow, so happy to see her, he is a man so in love!!! They go deep sea diving and swimmign with the sharks. Jason loves to travel and to try new things and this is great. He made her a gift also, but his is a board game called eight roses, which recounts their time together, she says it is the cutest, the sweetest, the most romanitc thing ever. She can see an amaxing future with Jason. So can I!!!
Ring shopping, both guys go ring shooping, Jason is confident, he is in love, he wants something classic and modern, that reflects her outlook on life. He stops to throw a penny in a fountain. Jesse on the other had is puking his guts up on the way to the store, he is so scared, yet he picks out a big square diamond.
If you’ve watched the shows in the past, you know that the first to arrive is the kiss of death it almost always means that is not the one and they are going home. My stomach is in knots, I saw so much love in jason that I want it to be him, I can see happily ever after. As the limo arrives, a navy blue pant leg steps out and I scream NO! Jason has arrived! NO! He thinks it all feels right, he is so happy, so smiling, they hug and before you know it he is trying to go down on one knee as DeAnna says NO, I can’t….your amazing and perfect, I would alwys bee safe with you, but her heart is somewhere else. In the limo on the way out Jason says that he was completely shocked, he was so ready to be in love again. At the time that this showed last night, I wrote the following notes: I thought she was real, I thought she wanted the marriage and the family, I got duped, she just wanted the fun, free sprirt adventure, and maybe Hollywood life.
Of course, I calmed down during the commerical and I actually watched Jesse arrive. He says that he never would have thought this was real, that you could fall in love this way, but he did and he wants to spend forever with her, she just keeps smiling so big, and it almost reminds me of the smiles that Jason had…Jesse gets on one knee and says will you spend forever with me? and she says Yes. She tells him she has waited so long to tell him that she loves him. The song from Natasha Beningfield plays again in the background…..is it possible your already hin my life…was that some foreshadowing that I completely missed.
You know, I have to admit they look happy, but I saw so much more love with Jason, and maybe the problem is that I saw Jason’s love story, I saw Jason falling in love, and Jason would have been the one guy I would have picked, and I was too involved in watching Jason fall in love that I missed seeing DeAnna fall in love, I missed that she wasn’t falling for Jason.
