We all have our favorites of course but it matters little what we think it is ALL about what Travis thinks and he Has to go for the one who fits him.
So far I have not seen once ounce of chemistry with Travis and Sarah S..
The screen caps mean nothing to me...
Photographs of a split second hug can be interperated into much more than it really is. We have been fooled by Fleiss and his staff on more than one occasion.
But we have seen in Travis's own words "undeniable chemistry" with Sara B ( who I think is cute and not as bland as some think). and he has alot of FUN with Moana ( not my favorite but I've seen more cattiness out of the others about her that is less than attractive) . Susan is sneaky and has something up her sleeve..just not sure what at this point...but she sure has Travis in her spell!
Travis has to figure this all out himself and since we are not privy to all the moments he spends I'm sure there is alot more to the story .
So is the picture of two girls hugging and crying Sarah B and Jennifer from last night???
During my 10 sec eyeblink breaks at work today, I thought about what Travis might need in a woman. Charlie needed a bossy woman to keep him grounded (though he wouldn't say so) and friend Jack did not deter him. Of course it helped that Sarah B (1.0) was honest, fun and had a gorgeous smile. But, that's Charlie.
Travis appears to be very grounded and perhaps very singular in a socially awkward kind of way. If I follow my thought through, then he would need someone with social skills whose antics catch his imagination. Sarah S meets the social skills challenge, peaks his interest because he can't figure her out, but appears to be too close to his personality. Susan excites his imagination (among other things) but I'm not seeing confident (make that friendly) social skills. Jehan (who probably does leave this next week) is perhaps too grounded and not sparking his imagination. Tara is leaving so I won't even try. Moana is all excitement, but doesn't appear to have the social skills he lacks. Sarah B (2.0) catches his imagination, but I wonder at her "grown-up" social skills. She seems to make friends within the group, but would she be too possessive of him (keeping him from his friends, etc) if they were together?
Frankly, my dears...I don't...but, then we didn't see Sarah B (1.0) come out with her motherliness until the final 2.
1 on 1 Dates so far...and next week:
Travis' favorite place - outdoors (Sarah B.- camping and Sarah S. - rock climbing)
Romatic dinner dates - Kristen and Susan
Everyday date - Jehan - market shopping then her favorite spot - the Eiffle Tower
Hot Tubs - Kristen and Susan (Final 2 date?)
His mom helps to pick Sarah S and Jehan for dates- how much weight will that carry with him?
Lots of random thoughts and no conclusions. Right now I'm still wobbly on Jehan leaving. If she doesn't then she probably replaces Sarah S in the final four. ARGHH!! *pulling my hair out*
Did anyone notice which ring Sarah S chose in front of the friends?
Does anyone know who will be the next two to leave?

I see Susan and Sarah S as the final 2....But, in the end, I think Susan will push one too many Miss America "I want world peace" statements Travis' way and he'll get scared.
Moana is a very pretty girl, but games grow old. She lacks depth, heck she said so herself (see sig line). No one likes to be played...she acts (or says certain things) one way with the girls and another with Travis. Not a good quality...if she wants to be respected as being "straight up", don't do the opposite. So for now, I'm going to hold out hope that Travis will pick up on this somehow and let her go after the fantasy date.
If Sarah S is the final girl, I'm not sure how much stake I'll give to a lasting relationship because Sarah S and Travis appear to both possess "dud" qualities to some extent , but they could at least build a great friendship. Respectable.
A Bachelor fan til it dies a slow death and oddly enough, A Rock of Love fan...finest hair extensions from Europe and all. ;-)
I agree that the tape we have seen shows some "undeniable chemistry" between Travis and Sara B, however, in my EVER so humble opinion, this appears to be the quick initial lust physical attraction chemistry as opposed to a deep meaningful chemistry.
The interaction between Sara B and Travis has been physically charged as that's how Sara puts herself out there. What we haven't seen is meaningful conversation or discussion of substance between these two and that is bothersome.
My instinct tells me that something happens on the hometown date with Sara B that makes Travis realize that there's not enough substance to her for him.
Hey- my first post of this Bachelor series but when they were "testing" the girls on the rings, my thought was... what if the girl genuinely prefers wedding bands? I do! Would those guys not believe the girl if she said that? Surely there would be a girl out there that prefers no "rock"...
Bigger is not always better. Yeah, pun intended!
