    Yes but I do gather that she is indeed thinking about what she is getting into. I get the feeling some of the others don't have a clue.

    I thought so too! While I think Nikki is lovely and earnest, she told Jason she wished he could see what goes on in the house. She alluded to they fact that all the "girls in front of him" are not ready to be be a stepmom. He assured her that he knew she was mature enough...

    Tattletails never last long on The Bachelor. You think Nikki would put more effort into getting to know Jason and for him to get to know her rather than wasting her time telling him about the other women.

    It makes it seem like she was not at all interested in him.

    The other girl that doesn't seem all that into him to me is Molly. True, she is not shy about pursuing him; but it seems as though she is into the competition. Or perhaps she is just overconfident? I haven't see her get giddy or insecure or rave about how good he looks shirtless. Some of these girls (Natalie, Shannon, Jillian, Melissa) have been shown to be visibly nervous and gaga over him.

    I might have thought that except for when they were on the rooftop date, and she is talking to Natalie, she brings up how Natalie did that to Melissa too. I think Nikki and Melissa are friends.

    I think when Nikki is talking about the people who aren't ready, she is reffering to Natalie, as we have seen previews for next week and that is who Nikki is talking about.

    I can't think of any circumstance where the bachelor should propose in the finale. There's a reason why this show has such a high failure rate, living with someone in the real world completely changes the relationship. It's especially hard on the person who is expected to leave her home (and all that includes, such as job, friends, favorite places) and start a new life with someone she met a few months ago. Adding a young child to the mix (and a brother still living in the house?) complicates things even more.

    Sometimes quick engagements can work in real life (a lot of us know someone who married their partner after knowing him or her for a couple months, or a similar story) but I think shows like the Bachelor sets expectations incredibly high, and it's hard to live up to that fantasy world.

    People are on their best behavior in the first few months of a relationship. For example, I don't think you can really know someone until you've seen how they handle stress and conflict. It's unrealistic to propose to someone, or accept a proposal, before you've been through some lows together as well as the highs.

    Exactly. I rather suspected that Nikki was not really into Jason.

    Yup, that's my take too.

    And then we have Molly who is determined to WIN. I don't think she's honestly into him either, but she defo wants to be the last one standing.

    Bloomers: No, I think it is ridiculous for any of them to propose. Just a little more than a month ago the man was dating 15 women at the same time, and the night before he seriously went out with another woman. In some cases, we know from what was said, he even slept with the F2. (Tara)
    No, absolutely not! Charlie was the smartest of them all when he said let's date in the real world to see how it works out. That's the ONLY way you can really know if someone is Mr. Right/Mrs. Right for you. Nevermind if you've got a toddler in tow...don't get me started on that!

    I agree - dating in the real world will let you know if he was Mr Right or Mr RightNow, as we've heard that it's not hard to get caught up in the moment when on those reality shows.
