I'm all for the tropical local. Anything to relieve the boredom of the show's format.
I actually liked Travis, but I think RandalR is correct. Travis is in a transitional phase right now, so in my opinion he was not the best of choices.
I think they need to go a bit older with the men as well as the women. People who are settled into their life, career, etc., and are truly looking for a mate. That certainly does not describe Travis.
So, do these producers actually listen to the fans? I doubt it, too much at least. Because who the heck among the fans have said, "oh yeah, we need the next bachelor to be an Architect"?
"I can do all things through Him who strengthens me!"
What I think happens here is that we need a change in this ring thing process. Don't kill me but I sometimes think people like Travis & maybe some others know that the ring is a big thing for these girls. The man may just feel some pressure to give that ring to the final girl for no other reason than that she should have it because she is the winner or final girl. ABC has to come up with something for the girl other than a ring if the guy has no intention of proceeding with a relationship & only wants friendship.
I would love to hear some other opinions & ideas.
has everyone given up on the show? are there any fans that will continue to watch the show if they air another one?
nrose, don't give up. Every season, when they're inevitably let down by the poor editing of this show, fans state they've given up on it. And every new premiere season, they're all right back again, glued to their TV
I'll continue to watch, although I doubt that I'll tape the shows..any sleuthing evidence is better found here anyway.

I personally think the reason for most of the failures on the show is the 3-4 month delay from the ending of the show to the time they can really be togeather. Maybe they should consider doing the show outside of the US again and only having a 2 week delay. It would be a nightmare for the editing folks, but it could be done.
