She’s gone. A great light has gone out — a bright red light flashing “Stay away, Ben Flajnik!” So how do you feel about Jenna Burke after her two episodes of The Bachelor Season 16? Do you have any idea what happened to her? Too much booze? Too much competition? Too many voices in her head?
After an action-packed premiere, we didn’t see too much of Jenna until the end of Episode 2. She tried to have a talk with Ben and we struggled to watch as she got tangled up in her words. The English language is tough, even for bloggers! But she was trying to say something about being more like a guy than a girl, which put her in a difficult position when dealing with the “ladies” in the house. Next thing we saw, Jenna was taking some kind of nap that Ben had to wake her from. Was she crying about Blakeley Shea being more confident than she could ever hope to be? Or was she just relaxing before the rose ceremony?
She was denied a rose and hugged herself as she sobbed about being mortified. This journey — all two episodes of it — was definitely hard on Jenna... for whatever reason.
So should we feel sorry for the girl? It’s not like nerves and a little too much wine hasn’t gotten the best of us before... just not in front of millions of salivating viewers. Sucks.
