The babes at Ziggy’s bar
, in Amherst, were glued to the TV last night as they cheered native son Jesse Csincsak into the final four on The Bachelorette
. Sadly, the 2001 Marion L. Steele High School grad didn’t return the favor.
To catch you up, 25 bachelors from around the country have been trying to impress a 26-year-old Georgia peach named Deanna Pappas in the show’s fourth season. But at the end of each episode, the brown-eyed, brown-haired real-estate agent has been giving the boot to some of the dudes, whittling the field down to four finalists, including the 26-year-old Csincsak. ...
He’s got some fierce competition. There’s 31-year-old Jesse, who was raised in Cleveland but is now an account executive in Washington state. He’s joined by 30-year-old Jeremy, a Texas-born real-estate lawyer living in Dallas. Rounding out the field is 29-year-old Graham, a professional basketball player from Raleigh, North Carolina. Needless to say, none of them seem to be carrying what we here at C-Notes like to call the "Little Bar 20."
In a preview for next Monday’s show, each of the finalists are shown taking Pappas to their hometowns to meet their families. When it came time to show Csincsak’s scene, there he was in all his glory, shredding down a snow-packed slope in – ready for this? – Colorado. “Isn’t anybody curious as to why he takes her back there when his family lives here in Amherst?” asked one fan. “What’s up with that?”
Still, Csincsak has maintained a loyal, local fan base. Brenda McGraff is his loudest cheerleader, who “met him years ago.” “I hope he does win,” she says. “He appears to be a driven, mature young man. He’s definitely confident and true to himself, even moreso now.”
Find out for yourself when the show starts at 8 p.m. Monday at Ziggy’s, 110 Church Street in Amherst, where they watch every week. Call 216-985-3663 for details. -- Cris Glaser
