    What is with the HORRIFIC grammar?

    Are Melana and Jason really this stupid or did they script it?

    Both of them said "Soandso and I's date......" They both made that exact same hideous grammar mistake. Can any real live human being with 2 brain cells really say that?

    This had to be scripted.

    It's far more common than you think. So no, it's not scripted.

    Actually, the show was scripted was it not? Considering some of the guys were actors, and I heard that the winner was determined by the directors.

    At the end of the show there is a disclaimer that says the producers have discussed choices and may have influenced the decisions "although the final decisions are left to the contestants."

    So basically they tell her what to do for ratings and since she is a good little girl who wants to preserve her reality tv/acting career (this is her second reality tv dating show) she follows along.

    But honestly, Jason and Melana were so inarticulate it was frightening. Adam said so many deep, thoughtful things I wonder if Melana even comprehended them.

    Someone in the show discussion thread commented on Melana using the word "reciprocity"...that threw me as well. The girl doesn't know how to play checkers - where did she learn that word???

    Maybe they taught it to her like this:

    Gimme a "R"
    Gimme an "E"
    Gimme a "C"

    Also, did anyone notice how badly through the whole series she needed a thesaurus? She said "amazing" enough times to make a good drinking game out of it...

    Every damn show that involved "romance"... there were two chosen words...

    "Journey" and "amazing". I can't wait til next year to find out what the new words are gonna be.
