Six weeks of constant champagne drinking, no working and being flown to exotic locations for fantasy dates seems to be the recipe for instant, never-lasting love. See which young lady gets the final rose and a marriage proposal from Jason Mesnick in the much-anticipated season finale of The Bachelor on ABC at 8 p.m. Or get a dose of real, real life, with the Documentary Channel’s premiere of Alpert: Music For Your Eyes, about the paintings and sculptures of musician and record producer Herb Alpert at 9 p.m. From the world of the arts, to the world of business, follow the lives of young black urban professionals in the premiere of Harlem Heights at 10.m. on BET.

Make a deal with the devil and tune into the second season premiere of Reaper on The CW at 8 p.m. Being a bounty hunter for the devil seems like an ideal career compared to those on Discovery’s Dirty Jobs. The season finale airs at 9 p.m. For a look into another dirty job with ethically unclean people, check out the fifth season finale of Nip/Tuck on FX at 10 p.m. Wait, there’s more…Monday’s The Bachelor finale and After the Rose reunion was apparently so dramatic that for the first time ever an After The Rose: Part 2 was added at 10 p.m. on ABC.

Getting the approval of Simon Cowell is something to celebrate.

Aspiring models in D.C., come one, come 5’7” and under. For the first time, the producers of America’s Next Top Model are casting for shorter women to compete for the top prize. The location is still TBD, but petite women can go to CWTV.com for the latest info.

For a glimpse of sibling rivalry among the rich and barely famous, catch the season premiere of Keeping Up with Kardashians at 10 p.m. on E!

Hear what happens between the sheets in the season finale at 10:30 p.m. on Showtime.
I want to get a message to that Jason bachelor and the 2 poor girls that he is playing around with. First of all to Melissa: Thank God that you did not marry such that man. Obviously, committment is something that he struggles with and it's better that you find out sooner than later. To Molly: Are you nuts, how could you want to be with someone who obviously does not understand the word committment. Finally to Jason:I can hardly believe that you have been through all that you say you've been through and treat someone that way you treated Melissa. Committment has nothing to do with feelings. Feelings change sometimes minute by minute and you certainly don't follow them when you have made a committment. Deanna gave you good advice when she told you to lead you heart. If we all went by our feelings the divorce rate would be 100%. Because not matter how much you love someone there are days when you could strangle them. Committment means that I will be with you not matter how I feel because I love you.
Someone, somehow, please get this message out to the proper people for me. Thank you.
