Well, my hopefully last hypothesis after running the full gamut....
What would shock Reality Steve, a guy, regarding this show? What is the opposite of Brad's non-choice FRC? What could be more shocking, never done on this show, and has a back door story to it that Reality Steve will clue us in on?
Well, all I can come up with, and that has been mentioned by more than one person on here, is that Melissa and Jason get married at the FRC ~ thus no longer engaged. Ty is in a tux, Jason's family is there and more than likely Melissa's too. This would explain the 2-hour episodes.
The screencap we are analyzing incorrectly? It is a wedding ring, not an engagement ring.
The back story? That Melissa and Jason knew eachother ahead of time, perhaps planned from the beginning. No wonder Melissa gets SO emotional when Jason is with the other women. Her intended is a kissing bandit with other women left and right. :nono
Shoot me now.
