Since there seems to be more commenting and speculating than spoiling this early in the season, I thought I would start a more appropriate thread.
I'll start off with a copy of my post in the spoiler thread:
I'm also going to add a thought about Melissa being a rebound and DeAnna being flown to NZ to test this theory. Perhaps the producers were concerned that Melissa was a rebound - and they rarely work out - and were concerned about the post season. Perhaps they flew DeAnna in so Jason could gain some perspective and (hopefully?) some closure before moving on to a commitment with a woman who resembles her.I am going to buy a ticket on the long shot pony in this race. I may be tearing up that ticket at the F9 or F6, but I think this filly has potential. I've been reading posts decrying that Jason would take a young 24 year old to the finals, and realize that the other contestants thought to make the finish line are also in their mid-twenties. So, I'm backing Sharon before the race begins. She is 35 and, since losing her job, is mobile. She is used to cold weather being from New York state - and she has the cutest smile and dimples. She very well could be the umbrella girl and the bungee girl.
Of course I'll have to see how "they" allow her to run the race - is she hidden? If so, is it because there is nothing to show, or does she capture his heart?
I've been snookered most shows - most notably ignoring the Shayne signs; which are similar to the Melissa signs with the early, heavy buzz. Melissa could very well win this race, but I've always been drawn to the dark horses.
