After three painstaking episodes, Jake finally grew a pair and sent home one of the craziest and obsessive contestants in Bachelor history. If you missed episode 3 of The Bachelor, read the full recap here.
Since the beginning of The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love, Michelle established herself as the emotionally needy bachelorette who wants nothing else but to marry Jake and have lots of babies with him…immediately! While her honesty and sensitivity was a big factor in why Jake kept her in the running for at least two episodes, her passive-aggressive behavior wasn’t. And last night’s episode proved just how fatal it could be.
When Michelle finally got her one-on-one time with Jake, she told him that she really really really wants to have a husband and then asked Jake if she could kiss him. He agreed though the kiss didn’t go well for Michelle. “You got to give me something more than that,” she said. “I can’t stay. I really want to stay, Jake, I really do, I feel that we do have a connection, yet to spend this time with you and not to be able to really kiss you, hurts me.”
That’s the second time Michelle threatened to leave the show— which gives you an idea just how needy she is: she wants Jake to ask her to stay every time she tells him that she’s leaving. Luckily, Jake called her bluff this time.
“Michelle, I think it would be better if you did leave,” Jake said before walking her outside to waiting cab.
The funny thing about this is that Michelle, still crazy as ever, claimed she has no idea why Jake sent her home. Lesson learned? Probably not, except to be careful what you wish for, because it just might come true.
