I am new to this site - I found it quite by accident two weeks ago tomorrow. I finally felt like I needed to chime in as your average Bachelor viewer this season. This is only the second Bachelor season that I've actually watched from start to finish. And I have to say that I've enjoyed it very much. The last time I watched was on Charlie's season and I liked the Bachelor and Bachelorettes this season much more. As an average viewer - it would have never occurred to me that anything was set up or that anything was fake or screencaps ( a word I was unfamiliar with a couple of weeks ago) would be flipped or photoshopped. Ignorance is definitely bliss! My favorites were all sent home within the last three shows which left me with Shayne and Chelsea. Since Chelsea was one of my least favorites and I was on the fence about Shayne, I'm rooting for Shayne. But it's more than that. Each week I noticed, but did not want to admit, the connection between Matt & Shayne.
I would be greatly disappointed if for some reason Matt chooses Chelsea, because I will feel like I watched all season only to have him choose someone with whom his interactions were awkward at best.
