    They really need to change the structure of the show.

    Not getting a ring, getting to know each other better, and either becoming engaged, or breaking up.

    I would rather have the last one. Think about it, how would you feel? You were given a ring, yet nothing comes out of it, being that the entire show is a staged farce.

    What is love? I have always thought that Love is a Choice.
    When you meet a new person, You make a sub-conscience choice to get to know them and a choice to let them get to know you. You make a choice to continue seeing that person or you choose not to see them.

    In the truest sense of English words, I don't believe it when people say, " I fell out of love" or "I fell in love". However, I do believe "I choose not to love" or "I choose to love"

    What will Jessie's choice be? Only he can choose and the last young lady standing will be given the option of reciprocating those feelings by sharing her choice with all of us Reality TV Junkies.

    There's no point to this show if the Bachelor/ette does not propose at the end. I know that realistically, the second option makes more sense, but this is not real life, it is TV. If you want to make sure that you made the right decision, why will you be on national TV professing that you are there to find your life partner. Blob's "promise ring" was a big hogwash, and should not have been allowed. These people are getting free airtime on TV, which will probably help their careers; in return, they should agree to propose at the end.

    I think they should allow all 25 women to stay longer than a few hours, or invite a larger amount in the beginning and have more of a two day meet and greet instead of rushing through the first night. Then he can go on five 5-person dates over the next 5 days then cut to 15 and so on.

    I don't think either one is better or worse, as long as the intention is pure. If, at the time of the rose ceremony, he really would like to get engaged then great. Then if it doesn't work out it doesn't work out. That happens in real life all the time.

    What would really be worse is being given a ring when the guy was just doing it for the cameras.

    The purpose of the show is to attract viewers and sell their attention to the advertisers. What I think you mean to ask is "What is the premise of the show?"

    The premise, as I see it, is to match up a Bachelor(ette) with 25 suiters and through an intense dating period and elimination process see if a romance/love can blossom. Given that a 1 out of 7 record of success is pretty good because I don't believe Fliess and co. do their best to find compatible suiters. It doesn't seem that they find a Bachelor(ette) then look for 25 people to compliment him or her, they find 25 suiters that they think would make for good TV.

    Amen! I agree...no point to the show to go on there like they're looking for a life partner, then they break up in 6 months.

    Nicely said Danger Bunny. As a viewer, I want to see the proposal. In "real" life, I'm a romantic and would want the proposal if it felt earnest and honest at the time.

    I think I'd prefer situation number 2.
