    3 things:
    1. They definitely edit the footage to change the order of the girls appearing on screen - I don't know why, dramatic effect I guess - but it's been confirmed that they do switch up the order of people out of the limos.
    2. I wish I could produce this mess of a show - San Francisco is so uniquely romantic, I've fallen in love for the moment with whoever I took every time I've been (unless I was stuck with some dude on business). But Coit Tower, especially with 20 cameramen and producers hovering around, doesn't capture it. Cool monument, but so many other really gorgeous vistas.
    3. Just for grins, I googled Gia again yesterday. Seriously, could her resume and photos be any trashier? And she is famous - without this show - never in a million years would this girl who dates only mega rich superstar athletes, lives in NY, competes in major bikini contests, and poses in soft core photo spreads........never would she give a passing nod to Jake, the very nice everyman I pass 50 times a day. It is definitely a set up.
    Ok, a forth thing: I'm not a complete Reid nut because he's the wrong gender for me, but I am increasingly convinced that TPTB made a huge mistake in not opening the checkbook to get Reid, and his funny, quirky personality on this show.
    Interesting points all, SDL. Clearly I concur on point 4 and how sad that is sounds like San Fran's beauty has not been exploited as it could have - it really gives you a sense that after spending all that money on Jillian's season, in spite of Jake's assertion he didn't want flashy dates, they are clearly doing this season on the relative cheap. Maybe recruiting a GIA, if that did cost some change, might be all they need to make this season actually work.

    To the sleuthers, I admire your tenacity and attention to detail, why do you think the editors use the same tricks every year, like showing F1 coming out of the limo in and around the #15 slot - is ABC almost winking to the sleuthers, there you go guys, or how often have they changed it up to confound you? Or do they realize the sleuthers are still a small part of the audience and not too concerned?

    Ironcat, I'm beginning to think of that myself. I'm wondering if they may present Gia as a good, even down-to-earth kind of girl, and throw Jake under the bus if he has any doubts about her. As in, if Jake at point mentions her career or background with a hint ofconcern about her being anything less than sincere and pure-hearted, Jake will be the bad guy for not being able to look past her exterior and see the good girl inside.

    I haven't seen him seem melancholy so much as sort of flat-lined or disengaged. Could be that he is feeling what Jason did with Mel (or so he claimed). He idealized her, then realized maybe they were not cut out for each other.

    Then I looked at her bikini shots on line and she has a very large, dark tattoo in that spot - I still can't tell what it is but it is located on her right abdomen.
    I don't know if Jake chose Gia or not, but I think he is wild card at this point.
    His answers to questions seem to conflict, he seems melancholy, then says he's doing great....I think he sold out and is sorry now that he did it. So he plays the game just enough, then retreats into his true feelings - it just wasn't what he wanted.
    You see, if Gia is an F1 set up, then I think what happened is that Jake wanted to be the Bachelor badly enough that in essence he agreed to this. By the time the show has been on a while, people will have found out about Gia's notoriety and there will be lots of buzz. That is what they want. If she wins, there will loads of controversy, especially if she beats out one of the church girls.
    I tell you, the producers would love that kind of controversy.

    ETA: Guy's note to Jake - you bagged one of Maxim's hottest models...of course she didn't care about you, she cares about Gia. But you hit it and you don't exactly pitch for the Yankees, so suck it up and thank Mr. Fleiss for making it possible.
    Yeah, but you don't really think she's going to Denton, or Lantana, or Blossomtown ( or whatever the other flower name was), do you?
    He only had her for the show, if she is F1.

    I believe it's Flower Mound, basically a suburb of Dallas.

    A dollar to a doughnut she isn't going there either!

    Is there some proof that Gia may be F1 (other than getting out of the limo at 15), or is it just speculation at this point?

    Agree with sdl, Reid would have been a very entertaining bachelor.

    No doubt Gia won't go near Flower Mound except for a FD.

    I just googled some of her pics, because sdl's comments piqued my curiosity. Wow. There is one very sweet one of her in a green dress, looking wholesome. But the others? Soft-core porn is right. Especially the one with nothing covering her chest but what appears to be black packing tape. Sheesh.

    I loved Reid, so thinking about him as TB makes me misty-eyed. But something tells me he would have been very indecisive.

    Any thoughts on Jake's mood due to the F1 (Gia?) turning him down at the FRC?
