Brad Womack couldn't find a wife on The Bachelor last time, but the former contestant is confident he'll find someone this time if people will give him a chance.

Tenley Molzahn, who was rejected on the season finale of the show herself (by that stiff Jake Pavelka), believes in Brad as well. To her, the reason is simple.

"I don't think he would enter back into round two if he wasn't sure," Tenley told People in an interview. "He got pretty butchered at the end of his last run."

Brad Womack 1.0

Brad Womack has KipTen/Lolzahn in his corner.

"I think [Brad Womack] had his chance the first time, so he knows what to expect," she said at Andre Agassi's charity event. "Who knows, though, they could throw him for a loop, but I think he has a better idea of what he's walking into."

DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Croft both got their hearts broken on the 11th season of The Bachelor. Tenley was nixed in favor of Vienna Girardi (?!) last season.

Millions tuned in to see Jake Pavelka propose to Vienna Girardi on Monday’s season finale of The Bachelor. Most of those millions were pulling for Tenley Molzahn.

In the hours that followed Jake's decision, fans flocked to the Internet, outraged. But Tenley, a 25-year-old college admissions administrator, isn't bitter herself.

That's just not who Tenley Molzahn is.

“I’m feeling good,” she says. “I have a lot of peace with Jake’s decision.” Molzahn talked with People yesterday about The Bachelor. Excerpts appear below ...

On her final rejection by Jake: "It was a very startling moment for me. I wasn’t ready to say goodbye because that relationship, that friendship was over."

On Vienna Girardi: "I actually didn’t ever get to know Vienna. In the mansion we stayed on different sides of the house. If Jake found something in Vienna that he is so in love with, then I’m happy for them. If they love each other, well, good for them."

What could've been: Bachelor finalist Tenley Molzahn and Jake Pavelka.

On her fan favorite status: "Some people might be disappointed, but I hope they get over it knowing I’ve been walking around so happy and beaming. The Bachelor experience was just what I needed. To fall in love with Jake is what I needed."

On people's reactions since the finale: "It gets really emotional, actually. People come up to me at the store or Starbucks or where I work on a college campus and just hug me. I’ve had women cry, and tell me my story has resonated with them."

On her dating status: "I have not been dating since I got home."

On having no Bachelor regrets: "I will always appreciate the whole experience with Jake because he helped me feel confident, helped me dream again, helped me find what I need to keep alive when I meet that man I’m supposed to be with."

We hope you do find him soon, girl. We hope you find him soon.

Will Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi last?

The Bachelor finalist Tenley Molzahn couldn't hold back the tears when Jake Pavelka dumped her for Vienna Girardi on Monday night's powerful season finale.

But looking back, she says she's better off, and she's right.

In an interview airing Thursday on The Bonnie Hunt Show, Tenley Molzahn says despite the heartbreak, she is "feeling good and ready to see what's next."

On the finale, Jake Pavelka claimed he was in love with both Molzahn and Vienna. However, he said he proposed to Vienna because he felt more of a spark.

"I think it is actually a better thing that I am here today in this position," Tenley says, even as Jake has Vienna in all sorts of different positions right now.

DUMPED: Jake Pavelka sends Tenley Molzahn home.

"If he was in love with both of us, really in love with us, if he was saying 'I do love you' to me the same day he told Vienna, 'I love you, will you marry me' ... then I think I am in a good position because I don't want to be someone's second."

On Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show, host Chris Harrison said he doesn't understand why so many viewers are opposed to Pavelka choosing Girardi.

"Who are we to say that they don't deserve each other and aren't happy?" he said. "If this was put up to popular vote, Vienna would not be the girl."

"Jake did what was best for him ... I am proud and appreciative of that. He fought like hell for Vienna. Maybe that shows how in love he is with her."

If nothing else, Jake has made a pimp daddy proud, and that is a wonderful thing. Click here for a photo gallery of true love between Jake and Vienna.

On an epic season finale, even by The Bachelor standards, Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi decided to spend eternity together. Tears of joy flowed as he proposed.

Congrats, guys! We give it at least a couple of weeks!

Despite her best efforts, Tenley Molzahn could not compare to Vienna, a pariah all season long but a free spirit who has always had a vice grip on Jake's heart.

Our traditional point-system recap of Monday night's shocking events - and the most difficult decision Jake Pavelka will EVER have to make - appears below ...

Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi Picture

Jake reflects that Tenley seems so perfect but he has this "lightning-hot chemistry" with Vienna Girardi. Minus 4, because no one talks like this dolt. No one.

Tenley and Jake jump in the pool with all their clothes on. So totally unrehearsed and totally romantic! Plus 8. The rest of the family joins them. Minus 8.

Sallie, Jake's mom, is not a fan of Vienna. Her weird sarcasm and lack of anything nice to say is really making it awkward. Funny how that works. Plus 2.

Jake thinks his fam's opinion is because he set Vienna up to fail, telling them Vienna was not well-liked in the house. Dude, you are delusional. Minus 5.

Vienna and Jake make out and rub mud all over each other. Plus 17, because this belongs on Cinemax late night and took place on ABC at 8:40 EST.

On the boat, Jake worries he and Tenley have emotional chemistry but he feels no physical chemistry. Tenley sighs, "I feel it." Ouch. Poor girl. Minus 10.

The best production assistant creation of the night goes to the photo collage Tenley "made" for Jake. Honorable mention? Vienna's promise ring. Plus 9.

What a Tough Call

Shirtless Jake tries to look contemplative on the balcony. Neil Lane arrives and the network makes it look like Jake and Neil are BFFs somehow. Plus 17.

Tenley Molzahn is first to hear Jake's decision. Kiss of death. Minus 250 for the wrong choice, and because she "appreciates his honesty." Preposterous.

Vienna arrives and Jake gives back her promise ring, a total fake-out move before he proposes for real. Plus 125 for the writer who thought up that one.

On "After the Final Rose," Jake calls Vienna, who is moving to Dallas with him, his "baby" and says they have "so much heat." We're creeped out. Minus 11.

Chris talks about what a "maverick" Jake is. Sarah Palin rolls in grave. Plus 7.

As predicted, the new star of The Bachelorette is Ali Fedotowsky! Plus 20.

Oh yeah, and Jake has actually been cast on the new season of Dancing with the Stars. Is this a great addition to reality competition? Or a case of ABC forever giving up the farce that The Bachelor is about finding love and not ratings? Eh, we love it. Plus 100.

TOTAL: +17. SEASON: +26.

Will Jake and Vienna last?

It all comes down to tonight for The Bachelor star Jake Pavelka.

Will he choose Tenley Molzahn, the sweet, effervescent, adorable, squeaky, wonderful girl from a normal Oregon family who seems like she would make the perfect wife in every respect (save for her ex-husband telling Jake to run for it)?

Will he choose Vienna Girardi, an annoying, possibly unstable ditz who enjoys topless modeling, whose family is a little out there, and who the other girls all hated with a passion (and whose ex-husband also says Jake should run for it)?

The right choice is clear. The question is whether Jake makes it.

Will Tenley Molzahn or Vienna Girardi be Mrs. Jake Pavelka?

For whatever reason, Vienna Girardi has had Jake wrapped around her finger from day one, and The Bachelor spoilers suggest she comes away with the final rose.

Can Tenley Molzahn somehow pull off the upset? We know that millions of fans (about 86 percent of viewers, according to our informal survey) sure do hope so.

Jake Pavelka is down to two women on The Bachelor, with his final gut-wrenching decision awaiting viewers Monday night on an emotional season finale.

Personality-wise, Tenley Molzahn and Vienna Girardi could not be more different. But they do have this in common: Ex-husbands who say they're nuts!

We've already heard Vienna's ex-husband describe her lying, cheating, bank account draining ways. Now Tenley's ex is out to warn Jake about her too.

Ryan Natividad basically claims Tenley is not as sweet as she seems, but rather a prude, manipulative bitch who is "infatuated with becoming famous."

The police officer, who she says was unfaithful, says Tenley Molzahn aspired to be an L.A. Lakers cheerleader and America's Next Top Model contestant.

Would Jake Pavelka be making a mistake with Tenley Molzahn?

"Tenley is a great actress, a master of manipulation,” Ryan says. “She’s far from the demure and innocent person she pretends to be on The Bachelor.

He also strongly refutes rumors that he ever cheated on her, as Tenley has claimed numerous times as Jake has courted her on the ABC reality series.

"Tenley always plays the victim, like a broken record," says Natividad, who notes that she withheld sex from him too. "It’s pathetic, and she’s pathetic.”

Jake already has Tenley's father's blessing, but should he beware? If The Bachelor spoilers we've read are to be believed, something may turn him off ...

But who do you think Jake should pick on The Bachelor finale?

NOTE: This article is about the 2010 season. For all the dirt on Brad Womack's second season (2011), follow the link here for The Bachelor spoilers galore.

From the beginning of the season, The Hollywood Gossip has been covering every second of the contrived, but entertaining action that is ABC's The Bachelor.

We've also been passing on gossip and rumors that, at least until now, have proven to be correct. But there is great speculation brewing about the finale.

Does Jake Pavelka really pick Vienna Girardi over Tenley Molzahn? Even in light of some of the stories that have surfaced about the former in recent weeks?

Is there a shocking twist, such as Jake dumping both girls, a la Brad Womack, or a reunion with Ali Fedotowsky, who left the program to return to her "job"?

Pretending to Look Conflicted

Jake Pavelka nears his heart-wrenching, terrible decision.

Some of the online rumors we've read heading into Monday's season finale and subsequent "After the Final Rose" special do suggest that shocking scenario.

Other theories? Vienna dumping Jake on the ATFR show. The ending was re-filmed after Jake changed his mind. One of the two is pregnant. The list goes on.

Well, our man Reality Steve, whose inside intel has confounded Mike Fleiss and delighted THG for several seasons, has come through again with ATFR scoop.

This is obviously not confirmed, because we were not in the room for the ATFR taping, but the man is rarely (if ever) wrong, so his spoilers are pretty legit.

Follow the jump to read who Jake chooses on the season finale Monday and the status of their relationship as of the "After the Final Rose" taping (last week):

The traditional pre-season finale "Women Tell All" reunion special of The Bachelor is always mostly filler - and a total misnomer, as they really tell surprisingly little.

Still, there were fireworks as Rozlyn Papa returned to confront Chris Harrison and the stage was set for next week's epic Tenley Molzahn-Vienna Girardi showdown.

As always, THG endured two freaking hours of the colon-tastic The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love: The Women Tell All to recap all the action in our +/- system:

Jake said self-defecating when he meant self-deprecating. Plus 3.

Wes Hayden of last season's Bachelorette is back for some reason. He says he's getting "a thousand more nibbles" on his dating pole these days. Gross. Minus 4.

Crazy ass Michelle tried to explain her crazy ass behavior, but just came across as even more unstable. Her best defense: "Ask my friends. I have a job!" Plus 9.

Chris Harrison didn't let up on Rozlyn Papa, but she held her own.

Rozlyn Papa was confronted by fellow Bachelor hopefuls about her relationship with producer Ryan Callahan, which got them both fired from the show. According to Ella, Rozlyn got on all fours, in wearing booty shorts and said to the women, "If you see [Ryan], send him in ... I need to be put to bed!" Plus 40.

The venerable host and pimp of The Bachelor, Chris Harrison, then took his turn with Rozlyn, accusing her of making stories up like his young son does. Minus 16.

She wouldn't back down though. When he said he was saddened by having to let "his friend" go, Rozlyn countered that Chris is no friend, having hit on Ryan's wife in New Zealand. Chris refused to "dignity that with a response." Awkward! Plus 25.

Jake Pavelka Shirtless

Shirtless Jake Pavelka has a tough decision to make next week.

The girls all praise Ms. Perfect, Tenley Molzahn. Jessie: "She almost fell out of a Disney movie." Gia: "She sh*ts rainbows." Minus 34 for them feeding us this crap just so we're devastated when Tenley loses next week. Brace for the pain.

Despite hating on her all season, the girls go easy on Vienna. Even Ali Fedotowsky apologized. Weak. Minus 46. We want catty comments and chairs thrown.

The next Bachelorette is going to be Ali Fedotowsky. In her interview, she said: "I believe life is measured by the risks we take ... If I could go back and do it differently, I probably would. I'm an advocate of women having careers, but I don't want to look back and say I didn't love enough." Excellent writing, story editors! Plus 30.

TOTAL: -3. SEASON: +9.

Who should Jake Pavelka give his final rose to next week?

 

by Free Britney at . Comments

Jake Pavelka traveled to St. Lucia with his three remaining women on The Bachelor last night. Despite the best efforts of Gia Allemand and a last-ditch do-over request by Ali Fedotowsky, he narrowed the field to just two lucky ladies:

Tenley Molzahn and Vienna Girardi.

How did he arrive at this painstaking decision? As always, THG endured Jake's trials and tribulations on The Bachelor to recap the action in our point system:

The "shocking return" of Ali Fedotowsky was the hyped event this week. She lies in bed with promotional pics of Jake that Mike Fleiss gave her when he wrote this. Or she printed online because she's a stalker. Either way, Plus 30.

Ali Fedotowsky Photo

Back in San Francisco, Ali pretends to lament her decision.

Jake often calls Gia "deep." What does that even mean? Minus 6.

Jake says he'd return to St. Lucia on a honeymoon as it has "a lot of meaning." Hard to top the place where you slept with three girls in one week, it's true. Plus 5.

Gia: "When I look into Jake's eyes, I get lost." Jealous. Minus 3.

A Fantasy Suite card is delivered, they hop in the tub in the suite and Jake says "Gia has grabbed on to my heart so hard." He could not be more awkward. Plus 4.

Minus 8 because we really should have added "take a sip every time Tenley says 'my ex'" to our Bachelor drinking game. We could've been so trashed last night!

Jake says he can't wait to watch his first sunrise with Tenley Molzahn. Plus 6 because with these two, that probably actually is what they were thinking about.

In the span of about like minutes Jake refers to Vienna Girardi as light, fun, immature, and "nurturing." LOL wut. This is your future wife, Jake?! Minus 17.

Mauling Jake

Vienna Girardi mauls Jake Pavelka. No wonder she's in the finale.

After inhaling Jake's face aboard a pirate ship, Vienna busts out her finest Wal-Mart lingerie and closes the suite door. Plus 3, because at least she goes for broke.

Re: the fantasy suite concept: Do girls put out when he's "dating" two others? We're guessing definitely Vienna and maybe Gia. No bone zone for Tenley. Even.

Twist alert! Ali calls Jake (cameras just happened to be rolling) and says she'll "forever" regret her decision. Until she stars on The Bachelorette, that is. Plus 7.

Jake's absurd reasoning for not taking her back: he's so much closer to the other three girls since Ali left. Dude, this happened like yesterday afternoon. Minus 14.

A half hour of filler ended the episode, but Plus 4 for the over-dramatic, music-free cut to commercial while Ali cried. That's when you know it's emotional!

TOTAL: +11. SEASON: +12. Roses: Tenley, Vienna. Gone: Gia, Ali (again).

Who should Jake Pavelka give his final rose to?

Is Tenley Molzahn the sweet, genuine cutie she appears to be on The Bachelor? Not according to her ex-husband's mistress, to whom he is now engaged!

One of Bachelor Jake Pavelka's frontrunners all season and one of his final three heading down the stretch, Tenley is a fan favorite ... but for how long?

Tenley Molzahn has won much sympathy from Jake and fans by noting that her previous marriage ended after her ex, Ryan Natividad, cheated on her.

But the "alleged" other woman who came between their marriage, which lasted just 15 months, says Tenley isn't "the sweet girl everyone thinks."

She's also a manipulative ... and a prude.

  • Prude
  • Will You Accept This Rose?

Tenley Molzahn certainly plays the part of the girl-next-door sweetheart who got her poor heart broken ... does Jake Pavelka know what he's getting into?

"She'd only allow sex once a week... and sometimes withheld that," says Christina Latham, who is now engaged to Natividad, and denies he ever cheated on Tenley.

Latham also says The Bachelor hopeful "wouldn't let him see his family."

Sounds like the stuff of a controlling b!tch ... but is it true? A Tenley pal says that "She loved Ryan deeply. If there was any bad treatment, it was instigated by him."

But Latham insists, "There is no way she loved him."

On The Bachelor, Tenley took Jake to her hometown of Newberg, Oregon, and Jake even got her dad's blessing. But should he beware of what she may be hiding?

What do you think? Is Tenley the girl she presents herself to be or a brat who emasculates men Kate Gosselin style? And who should Jake pick?
