Just some wild guesses... probably proven wrong in the next 24 hours!Originally Posted by Bloomers;3806526;
Also feel free to correct my mistakes... basing the stuff on memory.
If Gia is indeed F3, then she's certainly receiving the "wonderful" treatment you've mentioned in past posts. (Yes, nothing is ever consistent with this franchise... just consider each season as a new menu, but with a few microwaved "leftovers" from past seasons added.) Although she described Vienna as "dangerous" and had a heated, but quite objective, discussion during V's "fake" outburst, she was also the first (am I right? can't remember) to hug her after the key "apology scene". Also, Vienna is all too quick to join Gia in her RV and avoid the three gunning against her.
Curiously, this starts to bisect the "alleged" final four into two "sides". As this season evolves, will this become a "nice girls-turn-bad" vs. a "bad girls-turn-nice" scenario? As mentioned frequently, Gia has done some provative modeling work. Vienna has her previous "vices". Jake has explained that "nice guys" are those who treat women with respect. How this plays into the female "performances", I don't know... but already Tenley, despite receiving the "heart of gold" badge of honor in a Jake interview, is starting to get quite "catty" as the show progresses. (Neither she nor Ali view Vienna objectively... and YES! The production crew does mysteriously appear to be purposely "edging on" the "prejudge" attitudes towards her).
Glanced over at the abc board and saw some comments regarding the TV Grapevine preview of Jake and Gia's "grapevine" date. Somebody made a snarky remark of her performance looking too posed and "acted". Not a whole lot is happening in that short clip and not enough to see any "chemistry" yet. Jake does, however, appear to like her quite a bit. He describes the experience as the beginning of a "fairytale".
One important note in the preview clip: Jake comments on her being a city girl from Manhattan. Is this a hint towards a hometown date that emphasizes some "differences"?
Gia does resemble Kiptyn in that she basically waits for Jake to come to her, rather than doing the chasing herself. She mentions the fun of visiting a vineyard in the same manner Kippy discussed kayaks and traintrips. Like him, she doesn't seam as terribly worried about not being "the final one" as some of the others. (This, of course, may be why she isn't as threatened by Vienna.)
In regards to the other subject discussed alot... Vienna as potential F1. (And thanks for the compliment, C4real... eagerly waiting for detailed "expert analysis" of all of these cast members! We need something to get through all of this!)
I feel it is IMPORTANT that everybody analyzing this soap opera schlock look for her "introduction" on youtube. ("Bachfix" has it posted as "Bachelor Vienna Girardi".) Why? Because this is the First Impression Image that Fleiss & Co. is giving us... the image they expect us to keep in mind until they start "uncovering" her true personality... whatever it may be. I think a lot of viewers went into this season thinking of Jake's "righteousness" and have a preconceived attitude about the types of women he likes. Already, Tenley has informed us all that Vienna is "not right for him". (Correct me if I'm misquoting.)
