Now that Jake Pavelka is about to narrow down his final two on The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love, predictions and speculations as to who will end up being the future Mrs. Pavelka have become rampant. However, the biggest controversy to deal with for now is Ali, who calls Jake in next week's episode to ask for a second chance. The question is: Will Jake take Ali back?
Not surprisingly, most of our readers believe Jake won't. But it's not because Jake doesn't like Ali or that he's got too much pride to take her back, at least I don't think so. I guess the main issue here is that most fans don't really believe that Ali is asking to come back in spite of the video preview that claims she wants to.
Like BuddyTV reader LOVEREID, many believe that Ali's phone call is scripted and that there's manipulative editing involved.
Ali seems to be a smart and sensible girl who can stand by her decision to choose work over love. But even if she really does plead to come back on the show, it doesn't make sense for Facebook to suddenly allow her to return on The Bachelor after making such a big deal about her absence and giving her an ultimatum.
Jake, on the other hand, strikes me as someone who will not turn down someone he really likes, and Ali seems to fit that description. He's been there and done that on The Bachelorette season 5, after all. But since I find Ali's return a little bit contrived and since there are only two final roses left to give on Monday's episode, I doubt that he'll be giving one of them to Ali.
What do you think will happen on Monday's episode? Let me know in the comments below!
