Bachelor Jake's OK to Pick Vienna, Says Ex-Contestant
Vienna is the least popular girl in The Bachelor house, but Ella -- who was one of four women Jake Pavelka dumped on Monday's show - wouldn't be upset if he picked her.
"The show is ultimately his decision," Ella, a 30-year-old Tennessee hair stylist, tells UsMagazine.com. "What he sees in Vienna, none of the rest of us girls were there on their date when they were alone. She is different when she is with him than she was in the house with us. I can see him just not taking the girls word for it when he is not seeing it on his own."
Ella - who has a 7-year-old son named Ethan, who met Jake - says she never viewed the other women as competition.
"So I didn't get catty or jealous of any of the other women," she says. "I didn't really see that there was that much drama because I stayed out of it. I knew there were a couple of them that didn't get along all the time, but I stayed out of it."
Vienna, a 25-year-old Orlando native, "is one of the women that if she thinks a certain way, or feels a certain way, she comes out and says it," adds Ella.
"I think it kind of rubbed some of the women the wrong way, but then she would apologize for it later. I liked her."
If she had to pick, Ella says she would choose Tenley for Jake, 31, but she also thinks that Gia and Ali have formed strong connections with him. The next to go? Corrie, Ella predicts.
