When Thick Neck Gaston was sent home on Monday night's Bachelorette, everyone was relieved. Put frankly: James Case was kind of the worst. Not only did his boob sweat freak everyone out, but the dude is a giant pile of contradictions. He defended his goals to meet other women after the show as "living in reality" and as "simple thoughts about the future", yet didn't give that same story to Desiree Hartsock. He told Des he would never think about dating other women. Then she cried and sent him home.
Here's the thing. James isn't wrong. He should totally be thinking about his chances about becoming the Bachelor and about how being on TV raises his stock with the ladies.
He just should've admitted that to Des. And, I'm sorry, but if she had a problem with a guy thinking about other women, he should've reminded her that she's currently DATING 11 GUYS AT ONCE.
Point is, James had one ... he just handled it like an idiot.
And now, he's on damage control. His best friend spoke to WetPaint (which you know James totally set up; you KNOW he did) and was basically like, "James is a good guy! He was there for the right reasons! It's the guys' fault for saying those things about him! He's not after fame!"
OK. So first of all, this sycophant of a friend needs to get a life, for real, and second of all, how can you give an interview to an entertainment website on behalf of your friend and say with a straight face that he's a humble guy who's not out to get famous?
James has to accept that he blew it. He blew it with Des, he blew his chances at becoming the next Bachelor, and he blew it with Bachelorette nation ... all the ladies he intended to slay after the show now aren't interested because he came across as such a douche.
Bye-bye, James. Better luck on reality TV next time! We know you'll be back.
What did you think of James?
