There’s nothing like watching someone watch themselves on TV — especially when that someone is busy kissing hot bachelors.
I got that chance Monday night with Bachelorette Jillian Harris, who watched her hit reality show with 30 girlfriends at Calgary bar Crush.
“I can’t talk about the show,” said Harris as soon as I was introduced as a reporter. “I can’t tell you who I pick in the end or even if I picked anyone.”
Although she was tight-lipped about the show, Harris is as friendly in person as she is on TV. Soon after meeting her, she invited me to join the group and watch The Bachelorette — as long as talk of the show was off the record. I jumped at the chance to hang out with her group — partly because I hoped I might get some insight into her final choice and partly because it just looked like a great night out with the girls.
“I don’t know the outcome of the show — there’s no way she’d tell,” says Kendra Bryant, who led the cheering as Harris got closer to the crowd’s favourite Bachelors. “The girls and I are guessing it’s Ed or Reid.”
Let’s get the guy thing out of the way right now. With the exception of two men Harris has known for decades, there were no bachelors in sight Monday evening. There was no sign of a ring on her finger or even a tan line from a ring that had previously been on her ring finger. She didn’t blush during any particular make-out scenes. She texted someone at one point, but gave no hints as to who it was.
For those who missed the show Monday night, the final four bachelors joined Harris in Spain for one-on-one dates and a chance to spend the night with her in the fantasy suite. Unlike several previous Bachelorettes, Harris decided not to “sleep” with anyone saying she “wasn’t emotionally ready.” She did go back to the suite with Ed, but she used that time to catch up with him since he left unexpectedly a few weeks ago and returned last week.
