My previous reply got lost in the New Thread shuffle :
Actually ... this season it seems that we're all seeing exactly what Fleiss wants us to see.Quote:

I'm still very new and unskilled at this in-depth analysis and I look to all of you here for my training.
So ... last season, by this time there was lots of Tessa love here but I couldn't see any connection that afforded me an opportunity to (drink). But there were subtle clues that there was interaction between Tessa & Andy behind the scenes, and corroboration in the rose-less Bachelorettes' exit interviews.
Bevin got so much screen time and attention, that I was sick of her as it was edited as largely physical and superficial. Some fans kept waiting for something that would be evidence of real depth and potential between them and it almost happened.
I admit that the editing had me rooting for Tessa ... even though I was shown a heck of a lot less about her than I was about Bevin.
The question at the FRC became would Andy choose the overt sure-thing ( Bevin ) or the covert maybe-baby ( Tessa ).
Which brings me back to this season and all the questions evoked by the topsy-turvy edits. Yes, Jenni gets the most smooching, but it's definitely NOT a Bevin edit. Bevin was very intense and Jenni is not that tightly wound. In fact, a Bevin comparison can almost be made with Bettina. She is the one who is rather intense, divorced and thinking about hand placement, but outwardly and edit-wise is depicted as moving slowly like Tessa, with a dash of the girl-next-door Danielle. DeAnna is not getting an easy going, fun-person edit like Tessa, or endorsements in the exit interviews ... but Jenni is, with cartwheels replacing silly jokes. Jenni and DeAnna are both pretty straightforward, but we haven't seen any real warmth with DeAnna as we did with Tessa, ... but we have with Jenni. Bettina seems to be a changeling.
It seems there is a little of the Tessa/Bevin/Danielle edits being applied to all of our assumed F3. It's really twisted ( like that woman in Episode One) and we are all wrapped around confusing evidence ... or perhaps Fleiss' finger ? So ... Is Fleiss the winner this season ? Has he actually mastered creating suspense for the highly skilled BSI's ( Bachelor Scene Investigators) here ? It seems so to me.
