    TPTB is pretty hilarious. The audience never, ever wins.

    Last year, pre-finale polls showed Chris leading Roberto by over 25%. Post-finale, when asked if she made the right decision, some intensely huge number, 75% IIRC, said she did.

    This year, pre-finale polls showed 80% in favor of Emily. Post-finale, polls are now showing anywhere between 65 and 75% voting that they're over or "won't make it."

    In my head, this is TPTB's reaction: gotcha suckhas (again)!

    And with that, see everyone next season!! It's been entertaining and snarky, if nothing else.

    Carrie: What an amazing observation!

    It wasn't a buzz kill for me. This board has been more of the buzz kill, imo. I noticed that right after Ali's season the mods started shutting things down a day or two after the ATFR aired. They aren't doing any media so there's not much to talk about.

It has nothing do with the ATFR which I think was not as bad as people are making it out to be.
    I didn't think the ATFR was bad either. They were honest and admitted they had problems to work through. If they had gone on there and acting like everything was picture perfect they would have been lying. How, when they just went through this show and all the horrible things posted in the media, can everything be perfect? I think they are truly in love and are very smart to be focusing on their relationship. When the time is right they will do media, maybe. I wish them all the happiness in the world and can't wait to hear that they are getting married, when they are ready not when everyone else wants them to get married.

    I agree I loved the AFR. Not because of the issue between Emily and Brad but because it made everyone realize it is real people with real feelings. I really think this has been my favorite season in a long, long time. Remember Jake? How about Bob? Now those were fake seasons for sure.
    I am rooting for Emily and Brad. I do think as long as they keep the communication going then they do have a chance. I also hope they send us a note now and then with a pic on how they are doing.

    Not only would they have been lying, but they would have been ridiculed even more for being the "boring robots" that they were accused of being during the airing of the show. Now that they show that they are real with a real range of emotions, they are ridiculed for that. I don't blame them one bit for staying out of the spotlight, which I think is hilarious that folks are up in arms about this choice seeing as how they accused Em of being a fame whore. People are going to hate on them if they do and if they don't, so them saying, "No" is a big "Screw You" to all the naysayers.

    I am not sure what "we" fans have to do with it. Do they need our life points or something?! I am sure Brad and Emily aren't very worried about what the people on FORT have to say or what the latest poll numbers from insertirrelvanttabloidnamehere .com have to say. They are off living their lives! I think I outta do that myself now. bye.

    All 300 of us. We make a huge impression. Gotta say though, there's no place like Fort to follow TB or Bette. Good times... may they continue to roll on.

    well JMO..I think they will be bop around for a couple of weeks and put on a good show..no interviews but being seen here and there together then they will fade into the background and probably about the time of the so called Royal wedding (which for some reason escapes me why so many people here are facinated with it) there will be a quiet announcement from ABC that they have broken up and they will not give any interviews and asking us once again to please respect their privacy

    I am just wondering if they will do as Roo predicted and if they do will we even know about it..the breaking up and getting back together...since it appears that has already happened a couple of times
