It's Travis' sister, not ABC, that made the back to square one comment.
However, I heard a rumor here that they did, but even the statement they supposedly issued was kind of vague as to what the status of the couple was, which was also odd.
And I do have a problem with the fact that they didn't say ANYTHING about their current status on TV - given the history of the show I do think that's totally weird.
You're totally right. That's what I was thinking of. Thanks

Perfection is just fine by me!
Yeah, Bob, I buy that just as much as I'm likely to buy your CD, buddy.
Is this the article you're referring to:?
'Bachelor' spends day after at work
Nashville couple not talking after finale
By BRAD SCHMITT
ABC has restricted The Bachelor: Paris cast from talking for months, so now that the whole thing's over, they've got to be dying to talk, right?
In fact, it seems there's a gag order on Vanderbilt ER Dr. Travis Stork and Nashville kindergarten teacher Sarah Stone — who ended up together in Monday's finale — and their friends and family, even ones who have been talking to media for weeks.
Suzy Swift, a friend of Stone and one of her spokeswomen, said yesterday, "I've been asked to not say anymore on behalf of ABC."
Not so, ABC says. Publicity and management for those on The Bachelor has been turned over to show producers Telepictures Productions and Next Entertainment.
A spokeswoman suggested the couple issued the gag order. "Sarah and Travis have requested to spend some time together alone this week. We are respecting their request," Laura Mandel said.
In any event, no one yesterday was discussing Stone and Stork's current status.
Channel 2 reported in its 4:30 p.m. newscast that the couple has split but other media suggested otherwise.
One thing seems certain: Stork hasn't planned any extended leave from the ER to whisk his woman away. He was at work yesterday, and hospital spokesman John Howser said, "It's business as usual" for Stork until he completes his residency in July.
Nashvillians ate the finale up: The show was first in its time slot, with more than 20% of Midstate-area TVs tuned in for the last 15 minutes.
This doesn't sound like much of a statement to me.
