Jef, who was picked and then dumped by Emily Maynard on the last season of “The Bachelorette” seems keen to do anything that will help him prolong his fifteen minutes of fame. Now it seems that he thinks a personal note from him will entice people to buy something from is company, People Water.
The smooth talking, skateboarding cutie won over the hearts of millions (including Emily Maynard) on “The Bachelorette” (although he wasn’t my favorite of the bunch.) His ethical company and squeaky clean good looks melted us.
But somehow, along the way, a lot of us have fallen out of love with Jef Holm – and it could be because doesn’t he seem just a little too hungry for fame now?
Jef and Emily broke up, but that isn’t really what dented his popularity If anything, people took is side, believing Emily Maynard wasn’t letting him in to her life with her daughter, Ricki. But Jef kept popping up at celebrity bashes; then there were stories of him chasing Ashley Tisdale…or her sister. It didn’t seem to matter. Jef was beginning to look fame hungry.
Now hasn’t this just confirmed that diagnosis? If you buy yourself a case of water, or perhaps even a t-shirt for your child from the People Water website, Jef Holm will write to you. Honest.
Of course Jef Holm would want to use his “Bachelorette” fame to promote his People Water business. Who wouldn’t! But isn’t he going a little too far when he assumes that his customers will go for the incentive of a handwritten note? He must think pretty highly of himself, or at least he assumes other people do.
But at some point, most fans of the show are probably going to forget about him. Unless of course he’s the next Bachelor. That would really be good for business. But Sean Lowe is in the driving seat there now so it looks like Jef missed his best chance.
Maybe sending out handwritten notes to customers is as close as Jef Holm going to get to prolonging his fame. What do you think? Is he going to get writer’s cramp? Is he really going to write those notes?
