Jason Mesnick eliminated yet another bachelorette this week on The Bachelor but taking Naomi Crespo off the competition seemed like a less complicated decision given that none of the other remaining contestants had as many ups and downs as his date with the 24-year-old flight attendant from Carlsbad, CA.

"My date with Naomi was a real roller-coaster ride... almost literally," Mesnick wrote in a blog entry following ABC's Monday night broadcast of The Bachelor.

Evidently, Jason thought Naomi's mom was just joking with him when she said she wanted to bury a dead dove she had hit with her car.

"I honestly thought [the dead dove] was a joke at first and I was just playing along.  That was until the bag was opened and a feather flew out," Mesnick wrote.  "I thought, 'Are you kidding me? Is this really happening?  Am I really about to do a eulogy for a wild dove?'  I had no idea what to say. Really, I think Naomi's mom was just having fun with us all."

While his roller-coaster date was enough reason to bid farewell to Naomi, Jason also felt that she wasn't ready to settle down for good.

"[Naomi] and I are very similar in so many ways," Mesnick explained.  "I made my decision because I realized in my heart that Naomi has huge wings and she needs to fly and experience more in the world.  She is a great girl and I know I made the right decision for all of us."

On other hand, Jason's other hometown dates with Jillian, Molly and Melissa were much more pleasant.  Jason enjoyed playing golf with Molly and took part in a unique family tradition of the hat box, and gained a better understanding of Jillian as she shared her mother's story of battling depression.  As for his date with Melissa, Jason appreciated the fact that she made his son Ty a tooth fairy box.

"The tooth fairy box that Melissa made for Ty was so thoughtful and showed me how much attention she was paying to everything I said," Mesnick wrote.  "It also showed me that she was not just thinking about me, but she was thinking about Ty as well."
