Alright, I'm gonna do it. Did anyone see the 2 hour finale last night? I am glad Ms. Bubbly did not win. That chick was just too damn young to get married. She needed to go back to Florida and cook for a couple more years.
I actually think this is the one couple that may end up getting married and staying married from one of these shows. (I don't give Bachelorette's Trista very long with her fireman dude before her legs are wrapped around some TV or movie star.) I didn't watch much of the show just because Mr. Firestone was just as young and airheaded as most of the women he had to choose from, but they seem like a good match.

I didn't watch the show the whole season, but my fiance convinced me to watch the finale. I'm also glad that Jenn won. Not only because she was nicer, but was also a local girl.
I wouldn't call Kirsten (do I have that right?) "Ms. Bubbly," though. I'd be more apt to call her "Ms. Phony." She seemed incredibly fake, and (to me) appeared to be after his money and/or lifestyle (rich).
Not only that, but as I summized from the show, she left her boyfriend to be on the show. She didn't break it off with him or anything. She just left. It seems that he was under the impression that there was a future for the 2 of them, but she just bolted. She never tell Andrew the whole truth about this relationship. When he questioned her about it, did you see the "look of death" she shot at him??
Andrew & Jenn look like it might actually work out.
Edit: Added more stuff.

I am usually a reality show addict but something about this version just turned me off from the very beginning - heard the girls compared to Betty & Veronica at another site - i was always a Betty fan myself
I'm looking forward to "For Love or Money" on NBC - Fox must be kicking themselves for not getting this show

I actually caught the very end of Mr. Personality last night (Raw was too boring) and although I had banned myself from the show, I did find the girl to be a pretty hot little potato. I never realized that before, but the scary thing is that she actually looks a little like Lewinsky--same facial features.
But no chance in hell that thing is working out. Firestone and Jen might, as long as they stay out of the public eye after the show hype is over.
"Despite the above explanation, some people, especially among scientists, suggest that science may not entertain intelligent causes. This notion is certainly mistaken. The abductive inference is very much at home in modern science. Retrospective causal reasoning is routinely used by NASA scientists as they explore the heavens looking for signs of intelligence in their SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) program. If signals from space conveyed artificial electromagnetic pulses sent in code to give, for example, the first thousand digits in the transcendental number 3.14159..., this would be considered so improbable an occurrence that we concur that intelligence had sent it. If scientists ever receive radio signals that are distinguished from noise and have the indicia of intelligence, we can surely expect a jubilant announcement from Washington." -Charles Thaxton
My wife and I were just glad that one of the Bachelor/Bachelorette shows ended the way we thought it should. We were so sure that he was going with Kirsten, and I thought that his family's (or his brother's) objections to her would make him more resolute in becoming engaged to her.
I mean, you had everyone in the house talking about the ex-boyfriend and then it came up again, independent of that with his family. That had to have sent up some major warning signs, and thank goodness he paid attention. Some guys would be "guys" and go ahead with whatever he wanted to do.
Plus, Jen seemed so sweet and had accomplished a little more in life than "I have abitions and goals, but don't know what they are" Kirsten. I mean, to tell your perspective In-Laws "right now I'm pretty much living for the weekends" Geez.

Potentially cheesy movie = Free Potentially lame WM = $50 I would go to the movie and wait for WM, then either get the replay later that night, Tuesday or (as I'm doing) wait about 5 weeks for the DVD, which will be cheaper than the initial PPV>
