I love this post - all of it. The few comments I can add for those who feel similarly are:Originally Posted by PrincessRight;3173679;
1 - The show was manipulated at the end - but not because of TPTB typical desire for a suspenseful ending - rather because something went very wrong at the end, and it wasn't the fault of TPTB - they just made the best of a bad situation. If Jason stays as true to his goals on B13 as he has to this point, we are likely to see an ending more like Trista and Ryan - Trista was one of the very few who have gone on this show looking for love - she focused on that and refused to lose sight of it - and found it.
2 - Jason will not be away from Ty for 6 weeks as some seem to feel. He was to do B4, but on his own show it will be different because this is Jason's show and TPTB have already talked about how they will accomodate Ty. They haven't explain all of this yet, only suggested that the show may film in Seattle, and that Chris Harrison and his wife may be care givers to Ty (as they are with their own children when the show is filming) so that Ty can be with Jason during the filming. Jason and Ty will likely have more time together during the show filming than during Jason's normal work schedule.
3 - Recycled shows have had a better success rate at creating relationships than those where the goals of the primary were less understood. Too many past shows have featured bachelors who made no bones about the fact that they were looking for an adventure and to have some fun - not looking for a partner or love. Little wonder that they failed to deliver a love story.
