Lorenzo might have appeared confident in his decision to pick Jen Wilson over the superior, sweet, sensitive, sexy Sadie Murray during the finale of the The Bachelor.
But according to the bachelor himself, it was a last minute decision.
“I decided about two hours before the final Rose Ceremony and it was obviously a very difficult decision because I had strong feelings for both Jen and Sadie,” Lorenzo Borghese said in a post-Bachelor interview.
“I felt a little stronger with [Jennifer Wilson] just because I thought we had more chemistry. I was trying to find faults with both of them and it was almost impossible but I knew I had to make a decision and it was just that I felt a little closer to Jen and that’s why I went with what I was feeling at the time.”
However despite waiting so long to decide which woman to present his final rose to, Lorenzo says he has never doubted his decision.
“I’m very glad that I made my decision,” he said.
But despite Lorenzo’s confidence that he made the right decision, both he and Jennifer plan to approach their new relationship cautiously.
“We’re still very happy and we’re definitely together but we’re just kinda trying to figure things out and really grow into a relationship now,” Jen explained.
“These [The Bachelor] shows are successful because people actually do find love in the moment and what they try and find out after the show is ‘Was it just a moment of love or is this really a person who I can spend the rest of my life with,'” Lorenzo added. “I think that’s the stage that Jen and I are at right now, we found love on the show — we had a great time and I’m very happy I did it and got to know Jen and this is where we stand today.”
After getting to be together only once since The Bachelor finished filming in late September, the New York City cosmetics entrepreneur and Miami area teacher plan to continue to conduct a long distance relationship — at least until Jennifer’s school system ends its school year next May.
“I’m a schoolteacher in South Florida so I have to finish the year there with my kids but when May hits and I’m looking to possibly go back or not then at that time then me and Lorenzo will make a decision that’s best for us,” Jennifer said.
“I save lots of frequent flyer miles right now, I love New York and Lorenzo loves Miami so in that sense it’s pretty easy. We couldn’t live in two better cities and a lot of people make relationships work from New York to Miami is a common, easy flight. So I think it’s going to be visiting each other, talking on the phone as much as you can, staying in contact — he’s going to come down and see my [school] kids — and you know we’re just going to work on it as best as we can in any long distance relationship,” she said.
Should their relationship last and an offer be made, the pair also admit that this might not be the last that reality viewers see of them. Can anybody say Nick and Jessica?
THG NOTE: Please, don’t.
“I would never say no to anything until I know what it really is, I think we’d both be stupid if we said ‘I’m not going to do anything else ever again,'” Lorenzo said.
“I feel the same way, I think if any opportunity presented itself we’d both probably want to take it but are we looking for a reality TV wedding at this point, probably not,” Jennifer added.
