Two things were made abundantly clear to this romantic:
1. Virtually no one does it who is not a fame whore, they all have something they want to achieve that has nothing to do with finding their true love. I started this season still being a tad naive to this basic tenent, no more EVERYONE had an agenda.
2. We will never see the romance, if it somehow manages to happen, in spite of everything that Fleiss does to preclude it's development.
3. The only way left to enjoy this anti-romance series is to hang out at the FORT and snark up a storm. These "reality stars" GAG deserve no better, this is the purpose they serve.
I'll be looking for Travis to be a medical consultant on t.v. of some sort, Sarah to get a cable t.v. hosting job, Susan to get some sort of a job in media and Moana to publish a volume of poetry showcasing her angst and DEEP philosophical nature. Oh and I agree the whole lure of filming it in France was completely bogus. No French culture just an endurance test.
Even though I've gotten great pleasure from hanging out at the FORT I"d only watch another season if SOME romance developed between the participants. I'm thinking the best chance is Susan and Travis. I'm serious.
I want some romance, otherwise I'm gone.
o.k. I'd tune in if Samantha Brown from the Travel Channel went to a foreign country along with 25 bachelors. That would be enough to get me to watch. If she's not "taken" she might just be adventurous enough to try it.
