It's not easy being on Jillian's shoes right now. She's left with two guys (actually there are three, including Reid) and soon she must make a life-altering decision by the end of tonight's Bachelorette
finale. While one bachelor may outweigh the other, both Ed and Kiptyn have distinct characteristics that have captured Jillian's heart. And at this point, it's anybody's game.
For the past several weeks, Bachelorette
fans have been candidly expressing who Jillian should pick. Now, it's Jillian's turn to weigh in on the final two.
"Look at him. He has a nine-pack," Jillian told People
of Kiptyn. "He volunteers. He's smart. He's eloquent. He has a huge heart. He lives in San Diego. He's athletic. Did I say he's good-looking already? He likes adventure. I can see myself in his life easily. A con might be that I was always worried that he'd be too passive in the relationship. I also had to push him more to get him to tell me how he was feeling. He was slower to say he was crazy about me. I don't need anybody to say, 'I will propose to you,' or 'I will marry you.' That can come later down the road. But I need them to say, 'I don't want to lose you. I need you in my life.'
While Jillian also thinks highly of Ed, she seems to have a lot of hang-ups for the suitor who initially left her for his career.
"There was a lot of passion and emotional chemistry in the beginning. We have already been through ups and downs and survived. As you saw in his drunk bloopers, he's really funny. I love kissing him. I love that he's passionate about his career. But there are a lot of concerns. He made a rash decision to quit the show for his job. He says it was a mistake but what if coming back was a rash decision he winds up regretting too? After the fantasy date, I questioned if he was attracted to me physically or if it was just nerves. After he came back, it was more stressful and serious and we weren't having the same amount of fun anymore ... I want someone to be my best friend. I see the potential in both guys. I can see them in my life but in different ways," she said.
Meanwhile, Jillian claims that she's happy with her decision on The Bachelorette
though she doesn't say whether or not she's engaged.
"I can't say whether I found love or not, but I'm in such a good place now. My friends and family have noticed a difference in me. They comment that I'm on fire -- that I have a new glow," she said.
