Well, the engagement is off. I said from the beginning that this relationship could not possibly be real. I still have questions though about how the entire thing went down. I really didn’t expect for them to go through with the engagement and when they did, I thought maybe all of that fakery might have turned into the real thing. I did notice last night that Jenna was very composed onstage and that Colton was a sobbing mess. Jenna seemed to be enjoying her interview with Chris more than being out in public with Colton for the first time. But this is sort of a suspend disbelief kind of show and stranger marriages have happened.
Last night was a brutal night of recapping leaving me unable to close up shop until after the sun came up. Oddly after a long night of recapping I wind down by getting through my emails and scrolling through Twitter and publicizing my blogs. I was trying to figure out the best hashtags to use for BIP and got caught up reading everyone’s thoughts. Kamil was trending because he dumped Annaliese on stage, and then I noticed and interest Tweet that included a text purported to be from Jenna to some mystery man.
In the text she was reassuring one of her lovers that she really didn’t even like Jordan, let alone love him. Despite constantly saying that she believes that God answered her prayers in sending her Jordan, clearly she came on the show with another agenda.
From the sound the end of the text this sucker seems to have cut her off and she is desperately trying to get in touch with him. I’m going to guess he is an older wealthy man who bankrolled her wardrobe and such for the show. I am told he is the person that released the text to media around the time the proposal was shown on TV.
Also last night, Jordan’s mother weighed in talking about comforting her crying son.
Jordan seems to still be open to talking to Jenna. Which is odd. So the current narrative is that Jenna broke Jordan’s heart.
However, I still have unanswered questions. Since this entire story felt entirely scripted and producer driven, I am wondering if Jenna didn’t just get exposed by her sugardaddy before she could expose Jordan in some equally damning way. Could it have been that they were both in on the script and maneuvering to be the first one to the punch to get the sympathetic narrative with Bachelor Nation?
Because at this point Jenna will never be back on the franchise and Jordan is the “sympathetic character.” This means we will probably be stuck seeing him again in the future. I don’t think this is the story they wanted to project for their inevitable breakup. I think the sugardaddy threw a wrench in their mutual plans. Perhaps they planned for a mutually understanding breakup and are still trying to figure out how to make that happen and do some PR cleanup?
What do you guys make of all this?
