Jake tells Harrison that he was falling in love with Jillian, and says his first impression of her was that he was excited she was the bachelorette, and she was here "for the right reason." Oh, shut up, Jake. So where did it all go wrong? The boat in Vancouver, says Jake, who says all of sudden things seemed cold and awkward. Harrison asks if he thought about telling Jillian about Wes when he was let go in Banff. Jake says he thought about in the days after the rejection, and tells us he was having trouble sleeping at night, because he knew Jillian lost her job to be on the show, and was looking for love, and Wes was "getting in the way of that." So he called a producer. Harrison asks if he ever worried about crossing the man code line. "Hell no. I would do it all over again. It was the right move," says Jake, because Jillian needed to know that Wes's heart wasn't available. So did it upset him that she continued on with Wes's hometown date. Jake said he said his piece, so he was fine.
Harrison asks the guys if it was the right move, and Jesse says it wasn't, because Jillian's a smart girl who can figure things out for herself. David accuses Jake of "crying like a little girl" over someone he'd spent a few days total with, and the audience boos him down. Harrison asks if any of the guys agree with what Jake did, and a handful of them put up their hands, including Robby, which surprises Harrison, who I guess forgot about Robby's gripe about losing one-on-one time. "Why come on the show with a damn girlfriend? Period," says Tanner P.
Oh, god, audience questions. This is always death. "Jake, your campaign has all the momentum of a runaway train. To what do you attribute your popularity?" Oh, wait, she asks if he still has feelings for Jillian. She asks this like it actually matters to her. Sadly, it probably does. "I always will," says Jake. Awwww, says the audience. Another woman asks if he'd be the next bachelor if the show asked him. Quit planting focus-group questions in the audience, ABC! The crowd cheers. Jake chuckles, and then says it would be flattering, but it would be a decision that he'd have to make if it ever came. Well, yeah. He says it would be an honor, though. Well, no.
