    Maybe she just had it in her hand, but she definitely had it with her because she handed it back to him.

    Re: Discussion Thread 3/2

    I think the emails came from Mel-she probably cared not one whit about confidentiality after Jason told her they were through. Remember, no one is to know the outcome before the show airs and we all did, although not everyone could believe it was true. Falling in love on a show like this is no more than a dream and this one became a nightmare for those concerned. I was always a bit suspicious of the perfectJason-wasn't his divorce final just last year? I could never understand his willingness to be gone from Ty for an extended period in search of a bride on a reality TV show. He can propose seemingly at the drop of a hat and falls in and out of love rather quickly IMO. It takes a certain love of the limelight to be willing to do this show not to mention bodies that look good in bathing suits in hot tubs. I think most of the women are suspect as well with some exceptions, but we all remember Deanna's great turnaround from heroine to disliked. Expecting lasting love to form in what amounts to a few hours of time together under artificial lights and in fairy tale settings, is expecting way to much.

This is just an observation based on nothing more than conjecture which is no different than all other conjecture being discussed here. She went from "I am so mad at you/bastard" to, in the limo, "how can I be mad at him" and wondering what she did wrong. I also believe that Mel was told before walking onto that set..she was already angry, and Molly also must have been prepped, even though she looked totally confused though and kept looking at Chris for reassurance, constantly. What a bizarre show!! All your observations about Mel's personality are what I saw also and in no way would I ever fault her, she is simply a product of her life experiences as is Jason, and Molly, and all of us. This TV show is so interesting, although it is not real life in the sense that it is happening in a normal time frame under normal conditions, it parallels real life in so many ways. Our reactions do also, which is a whole other story.
    Great post and sums this up nicely.

I know I don't watch it for a love story and haven't in a while. I watch it for entertainment value and to sleuth, but that doesn't mean that I still don't get caught up when I see people like Mel and Jeremy treated so horribly by TPTB. I do see a lot of people here getting swept up in hopes of a love story and those are usually the same people who have a hard time dealing with the outcome. It would be great to see another couple from the show actually work out, and I think that Jill may be strong enough and smart enough to actually make the best of her situation, but she will have to go against TPTB and create the fairytale for herself because all TPTB are looking for is ratings.
    This is so true. Based on what happened with Jason...the huge fan base and people so determined that he was going to do it right....I hate to think what Fleiss and the fans will do to Jill. Fleiss with his manipulation and the fans who turn on you if you don't live your life according to their standards and meet THEIR expectations. None of know what really happened to influence this ending...too many assumptions being taken as the literal truth. Watching and reading all this, I am so happy I have the family I do, and so thankful that they are not this judgmental.

If I were The Golden Boy's former fiance, I would be a little worried right now that I might become the poster child for that concern.
    I would hope they would contact their PR department before filing suit against the girl who won America's heart only to find that she was bamboozled by the Jerk of the show...
    Okay I love FORT's casino, but I really am not very good. If anyone wants to donate their FORT $$ I would gladly accept http://www.fansofrealitytv.com/forum....php?do=donate

    None of this makes any sense to me. Melissa never had the ring. She probably wore in NZ until whatever crew member was in charge of it took it back to the States where it was kept under lock and key. The F1 typically gets the ring right before the regular AFTR, and never before the FRC airs. Melissa probably was handed the ring right before she went onstage.

    She could never wear the ring in public at home. She couldn't tell anyone she was engaged.

    I found it odd that there was so much talk about being together throughout the holidays--in seasons past, they might have been together in secret, but not with swarms of family around. Family isn't supposed to know either.

    Now, I do remember that Jen Schefft was asked about the ring and she did have hers--said she kept it hidden in her closet and took it out to look at it. But that changed at some point and the F1 wasn't given the ring to wear publicly until after the FRC aired.

    Yup - i know she had it with her, but I wanted to know if she was wearing it on her finger when she came in to the set... it would say alot if she was and alot if she wasn't

Jason is the one with major issues. Jason said himself she would be the ultimate perfect wife. She's still young, she has plenty of time to find the right one. I think it's Brad
    What she wrote in what emails?? I thought that the only emails in question were ones that have not been made public yet?

    Somewhere I read that they told her to put it in her pocket?
