People watch tv in order to judge people. Kat - your comments are super judgmental. I'm not saying they shouldn't be, but it's kind of hypocritical to do the very thing that you're condemning. Judging people is part of the fun of reality tv - it's stupid and shouldn't be taken too seriously, but who really watches it without deciding which bachelor he/she likes best or which one they think is a slimebag (and who writes on discussion boards unless they're judgmental?). As for Wes - sure they made him out to be much worse than he is. That doesn't mean he's innocent of all deception despite his comments saying so.
I think it's sad that there are so many bitter women in the world. It's just a reality show which cast "characters" to make the ratings go up. Wes just happened to be the guy they chose to edit,twist his words around,and basically screw over. Some women realized this fact and didn't feel the need to judge him as a human being....and others seemed to be so miserable in their own personal lives that they jumped on the "I hate Wes" train just to have a reason to rant. I watch the show simply for entertainment...but it's not entertainment to watch someone's "real life" be shredded through editing. I wish Wes nothing but success in the future. If people can't watch TV without judging....Then they need to put the remote control down and step away from the TV,then walk outside for some fresh air and click their heels together three times and say "I need to get a life!!!"
So when Wes tells the other 3 guys at his final rose ceremony that "he'll be home having lots of sex" after he gets kicked off that night... was that edited too? Hmmmm... if it smells like a rat... it's probably a rat.
I work in television, particularly post-production sound editing. I can assure you that many of these statements from Wes on the show were clipped, spliced, what have you. After listening to the podcast, I am positive that his character was heavily edited to be slanted. I frequently rearrange phrases and words, often even syllables to make characters say certain words or phrases. However, I am working in fiction and not defaming anyone. Reality TV is about the most unreal thing you can imagine. Editor's are gods.
Early on in the show I despised Wes. I thought he was a complete douchebag. But as the show went on, I started to think, "There is something off about this...no way would he come on TV and say some of the things they showed him saying." It kind of surprises me that some people just believe what ABC is showing them. This whole season has been so staged...Ed's return, Jake returning to call out Wes...don't get me wrong, I enjoy watching the Bachelorette, too, I just think it's funny how indignant people get and go as far as to call somebody they don't even know names based off of 8 episodes.
