    The obvious assumption to cover all stories is that both girls will be of interest to talk shows and news programs thus it is only logical that they both be in NY in order to do the circuit.

    I would completely agree with that.. which is why it's funny that Tara said she'll be in OK.

    I wasn't meaning to communicate that I don't believe you... I do and have been pulling for Jessica. I just think it's odd that the knowledge that she's in NY is out. I remember in seasons past (and in Survivor seasons past) people trying to find out if there's been sightings of the *contestant* in NYC... it's been so secretive.

    (It sounds to me like Jessica is really mature and sweet... and that Jesse really doesn't deserve her.)

    Maybe they have "leaked" this information to try to create some interest in the show. Goodness knows now that they don't have Trish to create drama that they had to create it somewhere. I don't understand why they can't just let people be people.

    "Yes" [dad lying on the couch, taking an antibiotic and/or pain pill]

    "No." [dad starts to toss the camera crew out and then realizes he no longer lives there and has no say in who stays or goes from the house]...
    Perfect!

    This got me thinking about the scene with Tara's dad. After reading in several places how disenchanted the producers have been with Jesse, I can just imagine them setting up Dad's scene to scare the pants off Jesse with his big old guns. That would explain the glimmer in Dad's eye through the whole thing; he was probably stifling peals of laughter watching the ABC folks trying to keep a straight face.

    Did I miss the part about Jesse being articulate and cultured on the show or as they say "love is blind"?

    Possibly it is the video tape editor and producers who are blind. Would we not all be in disbelief if ABC presented us a jock who is "amazingly" articulate? I would be stunned. It's not anything new, though. Reporters rarely interview the Yankees veteran pitching star Mike Mussina because they can't understand him. He is a Stanford grad with a major in economics. Jesse may have a similar capacity which we have not been permitted to see, because the networks all pander to the stereotypical behavior model they have conditioned us to expect. And, like Pavlov's dog, we're all eager enough to buy it.

    Medicated does not equal travel

    I also loved when dad says that she 'has to get medicated' to fly, and then says he thinks she should go to Europe and travel before settling down. That's a lot of medication. If she's so scared of flying, why does he want her to fly more?

    I've also been wondering since that show, why did they slip Jesse a note? Are they still in middle school or was that their concession to maintaining a circus like atmosphere? Because couldn't they just tell Jesse to his face "It is very important for you to respect our daughter, grandaughter, and sister."

    Did the camera crews have to wait around for eight hours to catch Jesse 'respecting her?'

    Oops, EZD . . . I think you let the cat out of the bag (not that we didn't already know Jessica would win . . . Enquirer and In Touch). Their chemistry is obvious and she seems strong enough to handle Jesse and whatever games he may play.
