My First BLOG!

I want to start off with the deepest sympathy for Marie Osmond and family for their tremendous loss. My heart goes out to you!

Season 14 on The Bachelor was incredible! I want to thank everyone for their huge support. I have received and read all the fan mail. Thank you for taking the time to write the very nice letters. Some of you wrote me from The Bachelorette. I have not forgetten about you. I WILL be writing everyone back. Just bear with me for a few months as my life is really crazy.

I am so honored to be one of the celebrity contestants on Dancing With The Stars! My dance experience is very basic. I've taken a couple of lessons, but that was simply so that I knew the basic country 2 and 3 step.

I never thought I would say this as a guy. My feet hurt. They put me in these low rise dance heels. Girls, I will never make fun of you again when you say your feet are sore. I get it! The studio Chelsie and I are practicing in is surrounded in mirrors. Normally this would help the dancers, but I find it very intimidating. Here I am dancing with Chelsie, who's so graceful and light on her feet and I'm clomping around. Lol...! Today, I got so embarrassed at my freestyle dancing, I had to stop and laugh at myself. I caught two of Chelsie's elbows todays. Cheek and nose. She spins with wild intensity! Its really easy to get hurt on the floor. If its not her elbow its her ponytail slapping me in the face. My reflexes have gotten very fast dodging hair.

My first dance this season will be the Viennese Waltz to Seal's Kissed by a Rose. As frustrating as learning to dance can be, this is sooooo much fun!!

Stay tuned as I will be blogging and twittering regularly!

  3. Jake, hello from Seattle. I've had the pleasure of meeting Jason Mesnick in person twice. I watched your season from beginning until end. I saw so much in you, that I see in myself. You are a stand-up man, and I wish you and Vienna all the best! Is there a place where I can send you a fan e-mail? Thanks!

  4. Greetings from San Francisco. Glad you are one of the Dancing with the Stars contestants -you'll have my vote. I was delighted that you chose Vienna, because she's my first choice. May you two be true to each other, and may God bless your relationship together. Take care, Jake.

  5. Whatever you and Chelsie do, just don't elbow each other in the eye. Melissa Rycroft did that to Tony Dovolani during practice in Season 8 and it wasn't fun.

  6. What a GREAT website- This will be my first season watching Dancing With The Stars and I'm excited to see you, and so many others, show everyone that with hardwork and dedication, anything is possible! I also want to say Vienna seems like an amazing girl and I'm so happy you two have each other. You make each other laugh, you lean on each other for support, and we can all see that. Congratulations to you both. Wish you all the best together, and on the show! p.s. SEE, it does hurt to wear heels LOL, but they look soo good! ha ha Take Care

  7. Another thing Jake: From your intro where we saw your family picture, I was eager all along to meet your family. I had the impression that they were great people, and that was more than the case. You have a solid family foundation there, and I know that they will be there for you and Vienna.

  8. Greetings, Jake and Vienna, from the hills of NE Georgia...(my comment on Vienna's sister's site)..."From the moment Vienna stepped from the limo and "fell" into his arms and right up to the final rose...she was beautiful and genuine. Her strength and grace under pressure was amazing and Jake was wise enough to see that. She actually had him from the bungee jump." I just can't get enough of ya'll...lol. Watching all the interviews and keeping up on the internet. I'm tickled to death, Jake, that you are on DWTS and paired with my favorite girl. Good Luck!!!

  9. A friend of mine is taking a dance class.. and he is so excited about it that he is even trying to teach me. At least you don't have to wear those shoes all the time. *grins* i agree with Orapin- Vienna was also one of my 1st pick.

  10. I am looking forward to following your journey with Vienna for many years!

  13. I cannot wait to see you on Dancing With The Stars. I hope you stay around for awhile. Also, the best of luck to you and Vienna. I always thought you would pick her and I am happy for both of you.

  14. Hey Jake!! So you find it difficult in dancing shoes? Well, that makes you a manly man then. I'd expect nothing less! Don't worry you'll get used to them cause you'll spend plenty of time dancing on the show. My heart says "You'll win it all!" Something about you just says it all. You're on a roll!! Why not win this too? Good luck with the show! Have a blast with it and you can't lose! God Bless!

  19. First of all, congratulations to you and Vienna! I have to say that after watching the two of you bungee jump over that treacherous looking gorge, I was routing for the pair of you. Witnessing the mutual support you two offered each other was definitely moving, and from there the connection became more and more apparent!

    Best of luck on Dancing with the Stars! I'm stoked that you were paired with the fabulous Cheslie Hightower! Here's to a great season!

  20. Hi Jake,
    I'm so happy for you and Vienna! I supported you from your bungee jump on and knew she would be the one. How appropriate that your first dance will be the Viennese waltz. Remember the up and down movement, don't be flat. A good idea is to watch former contestants doing the same dance and listen to the critiques they receive from the judges. You and Chelsie will look great together!! Don't forget to smile and use your great personality and good looks to win over the audience. Go for it, Jake. You're a winner!

  21. I am thrilled to watch you on DWTS and it's so great to see Vienna so positive and supportive through everythig. You both have been through a lot and she always keeps her head high for you and supports you.. It's awesome to see the strong love you both have for eachother. Best advice , don't give up and remember God is the core of your relationship. He will always be number one! Good luck to the both of you!

  22. "I think you know there is only one soul mate out there for each person and I’ve found mine…I have…and I’ve found him in Jake. I am in Love with Jake, I am totally head over heels in Love with him and I just know in my heart that Jake and I are going to be together…we’re going to last forever."

    Those beautiful words were uttered by Vienna Girardi, the One in whom the bachelor Jake picked. I have not seen to the end of the episode yet lol…no time…but I’ve learned the results already that Vienna is the winner. One can tell that she does Loves Jake, she really does! Only those who truly in Love is able to communicate such words like that!

  23. Hey Jake, I love how you referenced Seattle in your ET Bachelor Pad segment earlier. Hope you get a chance to come visit Seattle sometime. Maybe, you, Vienna, Jason, and Molly can get together. If you come in June-August, please take Vienna to a Mariners game at Safeco Field. The atmosphere is incredible during the summer.

  24. Hi, Jake! I am excited that you're on DWTS and I wish you the best of luck. You have a great partner. I'll be voting for you for sure. Just relax and have fun!!

  25. Jake and Vienna: I love looking back at some of your episodes. I believe that your 101 date with the bungee jumping was a key turning point. Vienna was your rock! That was neat! And, Vienna, you got the last laugh. Despite what happened on the group date at the comedy club, YOU'RE the one who's engaged to Jake, while the rest of that group is back home.

  26. Congrats to you and Vienna both, and can't wait for Dancing with the stars! You'll do great, just practice a lot .. and make Vienna practice with you too, It might make you ease up a little better!! =]

  27. Frankly I was disappointed that Vienna accepted the ring. I think you are a fake. How can a man say "I'm in love with Tenly" "I see myself in love with Ali" "I've fallen in love with Gia" and a few weeks later "I'm in love with Vienna" and ask her to be his wife. This is all crazy and not reality at all. Frankly they all deserve a more grounded man.

  28. Well Jake 'let go & let God.'It's your life & just because it's exposed to the world you are doing what makes 'you' happy & I respect you for that. Half of the world wouldn't like my choices either but the diversity in opinions is what makes the human race so interesting LOL Anyways...Dance like no one is watching & you will be great! You & Chelsie already look sooo good together! You will have my vote for sure. You're a stand up kinda guy & the world luvs ya. All the best to you & we hope to see ya in even more stuff!!!

  29. Warm wishes coming your way!! I absolutely love your smile!! Everytime I see you smile, it makes me smile!! You are so genuine and caring. I miss my monday nights with you as the Bachelor. I can't wait for DWTS to air. I am so happy you've been given such a wonderful opportunity. Just try to have fun with it!! Take care- your biggest fan in North Carolina!!

  30. yep, the comment above sums up what i'm thinking too. I've just turned 40, a day before your birthday Jake and to have only noticed your amazing presence half way through the Bachelor series has shocked my world on a spiritual level. I am in awe of you. here' to a secret wish to meet someday between now and 2030. Joy, mother of one; Hamilton,ON CAN.

  31. First I take exception to CarolinaGirl's comment above. I'm your biggest fan. ;-)

    Let me say that I am jealous of your mother. How proud it would make me to call you son. I'm sure she is too. She did a marvelous job of raising you and you do her proud. Best wishes in everything you do, and take the time to smell the roses along the way. No reference to the rose ceremony intended.

  32. Loved this season of the Bachelor, kept many of us viewers guessing up till the last second. I wish you and Vienna the best of luck in your new found love and engagement. I've never watched DWTS but I'm sure you'll do great. Good luck :)

  35. Jake, you are such a fool, when are you going to give it up and get off the TV, God your 15 minutes of so called fame is getting you NO WHERE. Vienna oh please get real, one can only believe certain things in the tabloids however when you see it with own eyes the Pic's and so forth then we know it is true, not a made up story about her as you & see claims they are. DWTS I feel sorry for Chelsie she is an awesome dancer but dancing with you she might not do to good..PLEASE go home to Dallas and get off the TV, thare are so many people sick of seeing both you and your Fake Swamp Girl Vienna everytime we turn our TV's on to watch are favorite shows..Your so called fame will fade to nothing here shortly, your NOT an Actor, Break a Leg out there on that dance floor!

  36. Yikes! Get real. This site isn't for haters! How 'uncool' of you and tastless. You don't even know these people and you are so full of hate!!!! That much hate towards Jake whom you don't know at all is NOT NORMAL. Sucks to be you Stacey. Obviously life has thrown you some punches you can't get rid of.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Stacey definitely has issues. Here's wishing you luck getting yourself some help.

    On a lighter note, Here's a good luck wish coming your way Jake!! Don't listen to these crazy remarks that some people put on here. They are just jealous and are taking it out on you. Just go out there and do your thing!!!!

    Your favorite fan in North Carolina!!!!

  38. Stacey has no issues other than being tired of turning on the TV to see mine and alot of my friends favorite shows only to see these two on the darn TV..It is a "Free" country right? so with that being said I can speak how I choose, I'm not the first whose spoken these words about these two goofballs, So say what you want as I will too..Jealous not hardly just sick of these two and all the BS lies from both, Oh by the way I'm very happy with my life but thank's for being concerned..I'm not the only person who has said this and I know there will be alot more who agree..DWTS another joke like Jake and Vienna! Sucks to be you sunflower try freedom of speach you might find yourself like V I say it as I see it I don't sugarcoat anything, right out of the Fake Lying Swamp Girl's mouth..

    ReplyDelete
  39. Stacey I think getting things off your chest is very therapeutic, I do that myself sometimes but this is a blog for well wishers not jake haters. So why don't you start your own blog for Jake haters and then that way you and all the other individuals who have negative things to say can have all the freedom of speech that you need and we won't have to read your ugly remarks. Have a great day sunshine!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. As for the angry poster,Stacey, above, she needs to learn that "your" is a possessive adjective and does NOT mean "you are". She wants "you're". Jake: you keep making the same mistake in your twitters and it's driving me buggy!! Okay, enough, about that...just one more little thing. Please don't talk about "loving" other women, Jake. All you have to say is that "I really care about you but I am in love with another woman" or "I have stronger feelings for someone else". You have gotten yourself into a heap of trouble with Tenley, Gia, Ali and Tanya from throwing the "love" word around too freely. Not fair to them, not fair to Vienna. You need to grow up. Sorry, Jake.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Jake...I just want to wish you all the best on Dancing With The Star's. I will be glued to my seat as Vienna will be! I will be voting for you for sure!! Jake just keep doing what makes you happy, both you and Vienna live for the life you want. No one else matters comes the end of the day. I wish you and V all the happiness in the world!! Please keep sending pic's through Twitter, I am saving them all to make an album. Take care of V!

  43. Enjoyed watching you fall in love with Vienna this season, and Vienna falling hard for you. I liked her from your first date. I saw the sweetness in her, and I liked her family values, her relationship with her father. It reminded me of my daughter and her dad's relationship. I wish you both the world of happiness.

  47. Proverbs 12 verse 3 in the "Holy Bible" says " A wife of noble character is her husband's crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones." It also says "The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down." It also says "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." Vienna wasn't ready, but "Gia" was...; don't worry about their friendship. Pray for yourself (in Jesus'Name) and give the girl a second chance !!! Peace and God Bless.

  49. I think you are the most fake insecure man on the face of this earth. You honestly need to get a MENTAL check if you think you can treat a girl the way you have..... Vienna does have some wrongs in the relationship. But the way you treated her was complete BULL SHIT!! I understand that you are frustrated with her going to the tabloids and what not, but God did not put you on this earth to treat someone with as much disrespect as you have treated her with. You said that Vienna was undermining you. Well what do you think you were doing to her?? You were doing a lot more than what you say you were doing... I think you need to own up and be the real man you are. Oh and by the way, I'm glad you didn't pick Tenly or Ali because I GUARANTEE you that they are a lot happier seeing the REAL side of Jake.
