Viewers, at least the casual viewers, I would think didn't so much want a fairytale ending, as they expected an ending in keeping with the format of the show over all the previous 10 seasons, which this horrible 11th edition of the show definitely did not provide.Originally Posted by jelle;2812662;
I distinctly remember poor, blameless, innocent Brad giving interviews which were clearly deceptive to the casual viewer. Hell, even to a non-casual viewer he sounded positively happy with the show and the outcome hinting at a happy ending every time he opened his big mouth. It's hard to believe that Fleiss was standing behind righteous Brad feeding him every word every time he yapped like a fishwife with his buddies on those morning radio talk shows or spoke to some other media outlet.
I'm sure it would be convenient to shift the blame for this shameful little spectacle of a season from Brad's decidedly ungentlemanly shoulders onto the shoulders of the viewing audience, who are wholly entitled to their expectations from a silly reality show with a set format. Unfortunately for Brad, however, not everything can be blamed on editing and on the evil, evil marketing tactics of Fleiss and ABC. Some blame must go and definitely does go to saintly Brad, whether he likes it or not.
