I thought that someone posted the the "spanx" that Matt was wearing was really something to hold the microphone on him or something.
I am a huge Amanda fan and felt so bad for her Monday night that I had a hard time falling asleep. TV doesn't usually affect me this way! I have gotten way too attached this season! Maybe during the private time during the FD's when the cameras are gone, the bachelor could at least "subtly" (or not so subtly) hint to the F3 that they are leaving? Amanda said on Ellen that he had reiterated on their FD at dinner about if he could draw a picture of his perfect one it would be her, or something along those lines. It isn't necessary to go to that level of deception with the one you think you may be letting go.
As far as Matt and Shayne being in love, maybe they are, but we still didn't need to have Shayne shoved down our throats in every episode. We could have seen a love story with much less air time for her.
