    Fake Emily didn't. She wanted to be on TV, and maybe prolong her fake romances

    Jucamer - I agree, from what I've seen in the previews, she appears to fall under JP's spell at some point.

    Sorry his spell? Sharleen might grow to like him, but under his spell - hmm I don't think so

    Every time I see or hear her name I think: "and Billy Bob loved Sharleen........and John Deer Green."

As long as you don't give the producers enough rope to hang you with, you should come out of this ok. I would venture that most of the girls don't care one way or the other for whoever the "lead" is, they are there to have fun, travel, hang out, make friends, and enjoy themselves. Sure, we see a lot of crying "why is this happening" women towards the end, but I see that as more a result of Stockholm syndrome, where you get sucked into the drama despite yourself.
    Good post. Although we may think that people who go on this show might be a little crazy, those are definitely some good benefits they get out of the show. Jillian has been most fortunate, since she got national TV shows doing what she is passionate about, designing homes for charity. Plus she raised a lot of money for the people of Slave Lake, AB when fires ripped through the town. This show gives bachelors/ettes a platform to do a lot of good, and many of them use their 'celebrity' for charitable causes.

    Much has been said about who gained the most from being on the show. Ali and Melissa are the two who are always touted as having made the most out of it and got a marginal career in the business, but people always forget about Jillian. I actually think she did the best out of all of them. She had that gig on Extreme Home Makeover on ABC and hosted a season of Canada's Handyman Challenge and now seems to be doing very well on Love it or List it Vancouver...doing what she loves. She may not have found love but she got the best career out of it. Even if these gigs end, she has certainly made herself very well known and could continue running her own business with her name recognition. Sharleen is another Canadian girl with a very successful career. I don't know if being on this show is as beneficial to her career, but I would love to know what her motivation was for coming on. She just doesn't seem to be the kind who is looking for the travel and the adventure...I would think she gets enough of that in her regular life. Of all of the ladies this season...really any season...she intrigues me the most. Why is she here???

    Jillian certainly has done well for herself. I imagine that if you are a pleasant and fun person (not crazy) then doing this show could be a blast! Sure, you might have to pretend to be interested in a guy who is pretending to be interested in you, but really, how much time is spent with him over a 24 hour period, and how much time is spent with the other girls? If I were young and interesting (and looked good in a bikini) I'd certainly consider it.

    I don't know why Sharleen is there either. She seems leagues above this guy, to be honest.

    What about the way she kissed Juan Pablo on the soccer field? Didn't you think that was a bit seductive? It looked like she was playing a part in a movie. My "like" meter immediately went from 8 to 4.

    Truth be told, it looked kind of awkward to me...

    She is an opera singer, a field where it's not all that easy to get good roles. I would not blame her for choosing this show as a showcase for her talent. The name recognition alone could induce opera companies to at least audition her.
