    And the final rose goes to. . . **Possible Spoilers**

    Okay folks. . . we're down to the wire. Which of the two remaining ladies will win Travis' heart and receive the final rose? Take the Poll and discuss your feelings and opinions as to why you've come to the conclusion that it's either Sarah or Moana. Possible spoilers are fair game here.

    I hope T has made a good choice for himself. I still don't see him with either girl. Moana - Just too much to handle. I can see him being excited now but the excitement can get old in no time. SS - Oh Gosh, everything is hometown and 'Nashville and Nashville' and 'you and me are perfect for one another'.

    If SS does end up being the one he picks, I can say that it was quite predictable for sure. And all signs point to her being picked too (which I would think is weird that everyone has made it so obvious!) If he does propose, I would think that he is making a huge mistake since both of them seem to take a slow pace in getting to know one another. Neither one of em' seems to be the risky types who just spontaneously do things out of impulse and can regret their mistake later. They blth seem level-headed.

    I'll jump in here first.

    I think Travis will give the last rose to....(drum roll please) ......Sarah

    My main reason for thinking this is:
    1. the screen caps (on the winners side)
    2. Chris Harrisons comment way back on E-online
    3. It just makes sense (to me anyway)
    4. She keeps him grounded...(he told us that)
    5. Best Friends make the best couples.

    I'm staying on the Sarah Train. ~~Toot toot~~my ticket is paid for.

    I agree with much of what you said. I feel sure that Sarah will get the final rose. I think that all the "we're so perfect, and we can be together in Nashville" is borne of alot of insecurity on her part. She should be nervous! He's dating another beautiful and alluring woman. But once he chooses her, she will relax and calm down and feel special in his eyes. Then, I hope, all that insecurity will dissapate and she will be more fun, attractive and happy. He should love that. I predict they will have some nice times together and it should last longer than 2 weeks. Unless she starts up immediately with the 'you cant be serious about Colorado' stuff. In which case - run, Travis, run.

    And, judging by the board, Sarah fans outnumber Moanna fans about 10-1!
    Shades of Matt and Ian. But then, it was general public 10 to 1 in favor of Matt, not those of us who knew the truth.

    Sarah is almost certainly going to win. But I feel bad for Moana, because she will be crushed. Sarah would handle losing a lot better.

    Sara, because:
    1. Editing - good girl (Sarah) vs exotic vamp (Moana). Good girls always win on this show.
    2. Editing - trying so hard to find romance in relationship between Travis and Sarah.
    3. Moana is too exotic, too cultured, too confident, too sophisticated for the lil' ol' southern doctor - she scares him to death.
    4. His body says - Moana, his brain screams - Sarah. She's convenient, close-by, fun, has a nice family, and shares his interests. Besides, he thinks (hopes) the spark of romance will eventually ignite (we would have seen it given the positive editing if it had already). If it doesn't - oh well, at least he made the "logical" choice. (What a wuss!!)
    5. Chris Harrison's comment gave it away!!!

    The edit is in Sarah's favour.

    Even her "what a Bitch" and in your-face-move at the casino could be favorably interpreted as a woman defending her man.

    A poster early on interpreted Sarah's mutilple on camera commentaries as someone narrating their own love story. I think that fits perfectly in to Fleiss's romantic storyline. He has also been running the "friendship before romance" cover story to it's full capacity. Since the edit was done after the FR was given, there would have to be a revelation of major proportion to sway majority audience support in a different direction.

    The edit is intentionally on Sarah as the final pick.
    Who we are is not defined by what we own or how we earn our living. Who we are is evidenced in our quiet passions ... and the signature we trace on those we love.

    I see Sarah being given the final rose, but I don't see that his attraction with Moana is quite as strong as they seem to be playing it up. On that note, I don't see his attraction with Sarah being nearly as stilted or uncomfortable as it has been downplayed to appear.

    We know from the Meredith season that they did edit more into the relationship with Matt than what was there, but no way of telling if they've done that this time around.

    I see pained looks with Moana, I think he's a guy who likes her - but she's not giving him that in return. He was pouring his heart out, and she didn't even make contact with him and that bothered me. She could've moved herself closer to him, made comments - but she didn't. The crazy thing was earlier she was saying that she felt that she was already the one standing with him in the end.

    Then there was the whole conversation in the fantasy suite that was really uncomfortable to me, where he was trying to "sell" her on the idea of them being a couple. His needing to comfort her about not having the exclusivity with him I don't think would've been there if he was "done" - hook, line, and sinker going to pick her. They'd both be on the same page, and there wouldn't need to be any question about what was going to happen.

    I like Moana, but I don't think her and Travis are nearly the match that they're portraying on TV. I don't think either of them found love with each other, but maybe found infatuation. Moana and Travis seem as out of place to me as Travis does in this setting.

    Sarah and Travis on the other hand seem to have a very natural and real spark and relationship building between them. They keep using the "friendship" stuff to throw people off and to leave question there, but it's so clear that he is interested in her and has been since the night she told him that she was always friends first with every guy she's had a relationship with. The kisses they shared on the fantasy date spoke volumes. The things he says to her - seeing her as the type of woman he'd marry, telling her that he's completely himself with her, saying that he respects her, telling her that he'd have lost a part of himself in the process if she hadn't been there... you don't say that to someone you don't have a real connection (beyond friendship) with.

    I don't think Travis and Sarah are in love, but I believe they are building a romance.

    It is interesting that different people have such different reactions to the same information. I saw the whole fantasy date scenario with each girl completely the opposite way. Lots of chemistry with Moana and a very "forced" romance between Travis and Sarah. All of us are seeing what we want to see. I have more affinity with Moana and many others have that feeling for Sarah. Whoever his picks will be his choice for his own personal reasons and we can only guess at them.
