F4 RC. Stephanie was completely stoic and understanding. This may be just her nature and no one was surprised, but she was moooooore than gracious. If this theory has Melissa going home and "missing" the HTDs so they filmed Stephanie's instead, I can totally see Jason and Stephanie talking this out then. Jason realizing the situation and Stephanie agreeing to come back and redo the RC for Jason's sake to interject Melissa back in as if that's the way it really happened.
Also at the F4 RC, Molly was uncharecteristically scared and uncomfortable. Maybe hiding a little animosity?
Also at the F4 RC, Jason doesn't call Naomi out just before? Maybe she was not accepting of the situation and he needed a little time to settle her into how this happened.
Jillian's statement that Jason never led anyone on. Now, he let 3 in stead of 2 go one week as to not lead anyone on. But one act doesn't cover that statement. And for her to make that statement, I believe she has to be in a situation of being let go because how could you assume this to be true if you were F1? So, At the point when this may have happened, he exposed honesty in his feelings and never led anyone to believe they were a clear frontrunner. It would have been obcvious then that no one was safe to assume that they were the ONE and everyone else was just there for the show. (Also, maybe a reason for Molly's look of shattered confidence at the F4 RC)
This may explain Melissa's parents decision to not participate if they even tried. Since she had been let go (or left) then on 2nd thought, we want to come back, maybe they just felt that they didn't want to played as 2nd fiddle. Like, some hard feelings. It may also explain the lack of information about her family from her friends. They may have said they don't really know them when in fact they just wanted to protect their privacy and that was the most sellable story.
Melissa's Seattle date. At that point, Melissa may have been replacing Stephanie. They may have "planned" Stephanie's date but in a bit of foreshadowing, the plans changed when it became Melissa.
I don't know what Bret Hart did to the WWF but, I really think the Montreal clues refers to "expose" (Expos). "Expose" would easily apply to just about any jaw dropping info.
The timing of RS's announcement. I think he may have had this info much earlier than he let on. Because its so crazy to think that they could pull it off seamlessly. He revealed it on Tuesday before the bait and switch episode. So from that point on he can show us what was "real time" and what was edited in.
I think this may also play into the F4 becomes F3 but not F2. I think that from F4 to F2 is "muddy". I think that the normal progression of girls gets all mixed up for a while and doesn't get fully straightened out until F2.
Sorry, I know its long
