For the four people who care, Bachelorette Jillian from last season and the guy she picked from among a group of famewhores, Ed, are not going to walk off into the sunset together. They broke up, but unlike the last Bachelor couple they’re not talking smack about each other to the press yet.
Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, who proposed on The Bachelorette, have called off their engagement, the new issue of Us Weekly reports.
“I love him and I’m really sad, but I have to look out for me,” Harris, 29, tells Us.
Adds Swiderski, 30, “We’re both kind of resetting. Jillian isn’t happy and I’m definitely sad about the whole thing, but we’ve got to work through some things on our own if we decide to move forward.”
Last August, Us exclusively revealed that Swiderski juggled two girlfriends while wooing Harris on the fifth season of the ABC show (and even slept with one after proposing to Harris, but before the finale aired).
“There’s bumps on the road, and we don’t always deal with them properly,” Harris told Us in early June. “Our life is not always perfect.”

It sounds like both of them are taking the high road and speaking in vague terms about their problems without giving details. Good for them and I hope they keep it that way. We don’t need another tearful blaming televised argument to see how a TV courtship went bad. I’m sure that ABC would love it though. The more scandals that come out of the dysfunctional relationships they arrange, the more ratings go up.
The track record for all the Bachelor and Bachelorette shows is now 1/19 with only Trista and Ryan remaining together. There is one other pairing that’s lasted – Jason Mesnick dumped the woman he chose in the final and then married runner up Molly Malaney.
Contestants have a better chance at finding lasting love on The Biggest Loser than The Bachelor or Bachelorette.
For those of you who watched this show, did you expect this couple to last? If Ed was working two women on the side when he was on the show I’m sure it didn’t take him long to cheat again.
