I think that about says it all, rose lovers. It’s been a loooong “journey,” and now that we’ve come to the end (SPOILER ALERT if you have not yet watched the finale and After the Final Rose), I’ve got a nagging feeling that there were better ways we could have spent the last 11 weeks of our lives. That said, this finale did deliver in a lot of ways — we had the skeptical sister (“She’s a model?”), numerous shots of the Matterhorn, and the most capes we’ve seen on broadcast TV since Dark Shadows went off the air. I have to say, I felt for Ben during ATFR, though his explanation of those tabloid photos was pretty weak. Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight (UPDATE: Click the links for Kristen’s full Bachelor season finale recap, and Chris Harrison’s behind-the-scenes Bachelor blog), but in the meantime, let me know what you thought of tonight’s “controversial” conclusion. If you somehow managed to avoid the spoilers up until this point, how pissed were you? For those of us who saw it coming, how much schadenfreude did you feel during ATFR… and then how much guilt did you feel over the schadenfreude you were feeling? Finally, does anyone think it’s a good idea to allow “superfans” to join Bachelor Pad? Post your thoughts now!
