    I guess times change and with it the perception of "classy."
    When we think back over previous shows we talk about the women whose exits were gut-wrenching or heartbreaking for them or us, but who handled themselves with grace. (Such an old fashion word)
    Sadie's goodbye to Lorenzo was truly gracious. He said two words and she wished him the best of everything. That is "class."
    Bevin's mute response was heartwrenching, but she held herself together through the long walk to the podium and back. It was truly class.
    Krisily's reaction and response to Charlie was truly classy and gracious - for a young woman who was called trailor trash. And she had to do hers on live TV.
    Danielle's exit, Noelle's exit Moana's painful, painful rejection. I am sure most of you can think of more women who we truly respect.

    Give me a classy exit where the young man or woman graciously accepts that they are not the one chosen in the end. It will elicit my sympathy. For Chelsea, I just undrestand why she was not the one No sympathy there. The reality, when we admit it, is that most cast recover VERY quickly and are ready to do it all over again, once they are released from quarantine.

    Best of everything to Shayne and Matt. I enjoyed your journey.

    Predictable ending. But I admit, I was hoping that for once [aside from last year's "most shocking finale ever, was was true] Bachelor would back up their hype-- "most romantic ending". Huh??
    Most of the Bachelor couples have broken up so quickly, that I now root for the woman I don't like-- Shayne was it. Yay!
    How long do we give this couple? That is, if they are still together.

    As I mentioned in an earlier post of mine, those who were able to make a "classy exit" were the one who invested very little to none in this process, and I would include Noelle among them. In fact, in her Myspace page, she said that there was no heart broken there and was able to start cracking jokes 10 minutes after getting off the limo. What a healthy attitude toward this whole thing. Marshana was another one, who was able to exit with relative ease and humor.
    Well Mary left at F3 on Bob season and she was certainly invested, I think she went out the most classy of all, even though she was hurt, she told him he was just following his heart and there's nothing wrong with that...Bettina told Brad if what he has with the two other women is more than what she thought they had then he should go with them.

    I am happy with the ending.

    But, "The Bachelor" is nothing without the "After the Rose" show. It makes no logical business sense AT ALL to skip that show. Without it, the public has no way of knowing if the end was true or not. It becomes just another waste-of-weeks series.

    I believe they can truly last as a couple. However, the lack of an "after" show makes me inclined to say they are kaputz.

    So, they are on only 1 talk show? 2 days later. Confusing.

    I'm wondering if they are not having one because Amanda and Chelsea would not be a part of it. Or they may be uncomfortable because of Amanda's 'words' to Matt and Chelsea's harsh judgement of Shayne. I think it really bothered Matt and he defended Shayne and now even mentions Chelsea as 'the other girl'. Guess he wants to spare Shayne from any criticism.

    I did read on another website (not sure if I can say which one) that they are still together. They havent figured out where they are going to live and have not set a date yet and want to keep their private life private.

    I dont think you can have a private life for awhile at least.

    and Jelle, I love the word "grace" far more than "classy". To me the word classy doesnt sound classy.

    I think it probably has more to do with the fact that Shayne posed naked for a men's [boy's?] magazine whose founder has been charged with everything from drug trafficking and child pornography to using minors in sexual performances. He has been convicted of child abuse and prostitution and more. It would be like the elephant in the room imo.

    She did not pose naked, just scantily clad.

    ...I think that interest in the show is declining. Even on other ABC produced shows like The View, there hasn't been a lot of chatter about The Bachelor this time around. Part of that is probably that this cast was rather bland. Matt wasn't a total player, but wasn't the ultimate prince charming either.
    Probably why I get my info on the show more from here than from watching. I was simply bored of it & kept forgetting to watch!! I can't watch the episodes @ work & unlike VH-1, they aren't repeated a few times a week (oh yeah & I don't have DVR!). The season seemed to go reallyfast. I watched one or 2 episodes, I remember the one with Holly (?) & Matt going to the movie and maybe one other episode right before or after that one. Suddenly, (it seemed!) they were at F4!! I missed WTA and kind of "missed" the 2 week break (I was looking for the show on 5/5, not knowing it wasn't on!) and the only person I knew who was remotely interested was my sister, and probably b/c she lived in London for the past 2 years. I had the finale on, but fell asleep during it so I had no idea who was F1 until I logged on today.

    I plan on watching Deahhhna's Bachelorette season, since we haven't had one since Jen (gasp!) but I am wondering if, for me, if I am just "so over it" or if the girls & Matt were just boring.
