'The Bachelor: Rome': Sadie or Jennifer?

All day long, I’ve been obsessed with two things, and two things only. And now that I’ve decided to make pulled pork sandwiches with red cabbage for dinner — thank heavens for Everyday Food! — that leaves me with only one question to ponder: Who’s going to win on tonight’s season finale of The Bachelor: Rome? (Note ABC’s website is still promoting last week’s "Women Tell All" episode.) And by "win," of course, I mean "agree to continue a hopelessly superficial courtship with ‘Prince’ Lorenzo Borghese for another 6-12 months before announcing an amicable split through an ABC spokesperson."

In one corner, there’s vaguely appealing (and virginal) Sadie. In the other, there’s kind (but bland) Jennifer. WHICH WOMAN WILL FULFILL HER REAL-LIFE FAIRYTALE BY BECOMING LORENZO’S PRINCESS? WHICH WOMAN’S DREAMS WILL BE CRUSHED ON NATIONAL TELEVISION? Oops, sorry, I just channeled Chris Harrison.

Anyway, if Sadie doesn’t win, I predict I’m going to cough up a littlebit of that pulled pork in a fit of confusion and rage. (I admit it: Idon’t want to care, and yet, after taking the "journey" with Lorenzo, I"feel" a lot of "emotions.") Sadie and Lorenzo have exhibited actualromantic chemistry, whereas Jennifer and Lorenzo have the kind ofchemistry that’s on par with that of Kelly Ripa and Clay Aiken’s hand.Am I right? Or am I going to be in for a surprise when Jennifer ends upwith the tiara? (Also: Stay tuned to EW.com tomorrow afternoon for my soul-crushing life-affirming sexy heartwarming interview with Lorenzo and his soon-to-be arch-enemy ex bride.)

    Pulled pork and red cabbage?
    Make sure to have that BeanO handy.

  • aramis

    OH, and just make sure you DON’T eat the red cabbage before the interview….
    LOL, I’m only saying….

  • Kitty

    when do I show up for the pulled pork and cabbage?
    who cares a hoot about The Bachelor?

  • bb

    Princess Sadie.

    I absolutely cannot believe Lorenzo picked Jennifer. The more she speaks the more I can’t stand listening to her. Jen, please, take a breath when you speak. She talks only in run-on sentences. She goes on and on, but she isn’t actually saying anything. I knew I preferred Sadie, but by the end of the two hours tonight, I knew I couldn’t stand to hear Jennifer speak any longer. I don’t know what Lorenzo is thinking. And her dad frightens the daylights out of me. Even Sadie’s vocation (in PR in the fashion industry) would have fit in better with Lorenzo’s family’s cosmetics company. Oh well, I’m sure he will come to regret his decision.

    Jen pulled away every time he zoomed in for a kiss. i think the producers purposely didn’t show any real kissing between the two – I saw infatuation with both but no real chemistry. I predict it will last a week after this show!

    Gosh I am just totally bummed. I thought for sure it would be Sadie. She had charm charisma and depth, and Lorenzo seemed to be falling for her, only to have him pick Jen?!?!? I feel so mislead and betrayed! Jen was of course beautiful and sweet, but she was really focused on ‘Yippee I’m going to be a princess’ more then ‘I really want to be with this guy’. But I guess if having her dad as a father-in-law doesn’t totally turn you off then nothing will. Sadie should be the next Bachelorette.

  • Izzy

    I can’t believe it! Sadie is such a gracious lady and Jen is such a twit. I agree with Mikki – the more you hear Jen’s voice, the more grating it becomes – as I’m sure Lorenzo will soon learn. Honestly, though, I think Sadie is too good for him so she’s really better off. Beneath that suave, handsome exterior – nothing!

  • angelfromjerzee

    Sadie had the same lisp as Lorenzo’s Mom and she looked like a younger version of his MOM… although Jenn would not have been my choice he probably realized Sadie was alot like his Mom and couldn’t possibly kiss his own Mom passionately .. Unless of course they were from southern Italy … LOL

    Lorenzo picked the wrong girl…what a let down. Why watch this stuff any more when it’s so obvious to the world who should win and then she loses. What’s with that??
    Sadie…you go girl. You are the right one for another handsome prince who really appreciates the queen that you are. Perhaps you should be the next Bachelorette and be like Trista who picked a neat guy. That show ending was really, really romantic.
    This latest show was a total bomb and very disappointing.

  • Angelene

    Come on, its obvious that Sadie is the real gem! Why should darling Sadie have to be picked by some bachelor? I think Sadie should be able to choose the guy that is right for her. Sadie is total class and an amazing example to all. Her classiness is a rare thing in this day. To have her on television is a relief to this unraveling world. I think that there should be more bachelorette shows. Women should not have the mindset of “being picked.” I want to see Sadie choose the man of HER dreams!!

    I like Jen!

  • Corran

    Biggest letdown in Bachelor history. What was Lorenzo thinking? This girl (Jenn) was grating, and did NOT have a personality in comparison to the sweet and sultry Sadie. I like Sadie :)

  • Jennifer

    OMG what a total BUST! Jenn over Sadie? Pardon me, but what the H*LL? He didn’t even seem that intrested in Jenn but all of a sudden he wants to be with her?! He and Sadie seemed to be real and so connected and you could tell Sadie cared about him and not being a princess. She was totally in love with him! All I saw with Jenn was some little crush and “OO I want to be a pretty princess”, and what about her Dad at brunch, how RUDE! I feel cheated, mislead and hurt! And what about that line?!! “In you’re wish list you said you wanted a guy who can’t fathom being with another woman. The truth is that there is another woman here, and at this point I would rather be with her.” Jesus that’s got to be the worst line in Bachelor history. Who freakn’ tells a girl he doesn’t want to be with her like that? Especially someone like Sadie?!!! Don’t worry Sadie, most of us rooted for you! You are always a princess in my heart!

    I LIKED Jen a lot.
    She was easy going, easy to be with.
    She and Lorenzo seemed to be more of a match than Sadie and Lorenzo.
