    • QUOTES (7)

      • Jillian: Those feelings that I had for Jason were very true, but he wasn't the right person for me and it was scary to let those walls down. But it felt really great and I think it really changed me long term. It made me open my heart, it made me realise how much I do want somebody in my life. I hope that I can have that feeling again.

      • Jillian: I can't believe this is happening to me. I don't know what its going to be like on this side, but I know it's my turn to do the choosing.

      • Jillian: I'm not a princess. I don't think I'm drop-dead gorgeous. I think I'm cute, I think I've got a huge heart, and there is somebody really special out there for me. I haven't seen him yet but I know he exists.

      • Jillian: I'm back in L.A, I'm the Bachelorette, and I'm back in action!

      • Jillian: Life is a big dance – sometimes you trip and fall and you just have to keep on trying.

      • Jillian: I've got a full smorgasbord of good-looking men here tonight. It's definitely easy on the ego, that's for sure.

      • Michael: (about Jillian) She punches me right in the face with how beautiful she is.
