Viewers of The Bachelorette may have been a little hard on Jillian Harris. Who could blame them? She's been making lousy choices week after week ---eliminating the good ones and keeping the bad guys in the running. In spite of all the criticisms she's been getting these days, the Canadian love searcher asserts that she's a smart girl.

"I also have to admit that it is hard reading all the comments, and how disappointed you all are with me for keeping Wes... I totally understand where you're coming from though and I know how frustrating it is when you wish I could have seen what you're seeing now (I feel your pain!)," Jillian wrote on her blog on People.

Perhaps the last straw was Monday night's episode in which Jillian kept Wes in the competition despite Jake's warning that he has a girlfriend back home.

"Wes has a girlfriend," Jake told Jillian.  "Her name is Laurel.  We've talked about Laurel more than three times."

"So are you confident he has a girlfriend?  Like 100%?" replied Jillian.

"I wouldn't be here to tell you something I 'thought.' Wes has a girlfriend," Jake answered, adding that Wes would attempt to tell Jillian that Laurel was only a former girlfriend he was still good friends with.  "He's real quick on his feet."

And while it seems like all the Wes drama is far from over, Jillian assures fans that her Bachelorette stint will have a happy ending.

"But if there is any consolation to you at all, it is that my promise still stands ... I AM a smart girl, and I AM extremely happy with the final result," the Bachelorette wrote. "And the most important decision (which is the only one that really matters) was the right one! So pour yourself a glass of wine, sit back, and enjoy!"
