    He still makes my skin crawl.

    Martin didn't look as good, though. I can't put my finger on it. He had some silver in his hair and it was longer when I saw him.
    I hear you! I had never experienced that feeling of having my skin crawl until last night. It was like Fleece was sitting across from me in my living room. And every hair on my head was standing at attention. His comment about when people cried being the marker of their sincerity on the show, hit me in an odd way. Almost like that was his marker of success period. That perhaps subconsciously (I am giving him the benefit of the doubt here) that's his aim. Shudder. If you looked at his lips closely, you could almost hear him whisper 'mealticket" when gushing over Trista.

    When the camera panned to the production group as a whole, I could not help but notice that most of the men struck me as well, probably not 'mainstream daters'. Sorry! I can't think of any other way of putting it!
    It was all reminiscent of a science experiment by the geeks using the cool kids in high school and making sure they 'paid' for their success. Twisted as anything.
    I still can't get my head around why the women who are involved with the show, well, are! Any ideas anyone?!


    The highlight of the show for me: ABC calling Fleece in a panic "They aren't falling in love!" as if that was something that could be controlled. Oh, wait I forgot, it can!

    Dougal: Oh no thanks Ted, I've got these crisps, here.

    I agree, nennie. these people all know what theyre getting themselves into when they go on this show. They are open for all kinds of scrutiny from then on. I found it rather peculiar that she would say on last night's show that Jason is someone she never would have dated. Kind of a last slap at Jason, imo.

    Melissa will likely regret much of her on-camera work (Bach and otherwise) a decade from now.

    She and her friends watch the Bachelor as a group. While she was still in school, she started writing her blog for enjoyment and was surprised to see that she had gotten 150,000 hits. As a result, she decided to continue writing her blog.
    The strong implication is that she is now practicing law but is writing her blog on the side.
    *****************
    I was so bothered by what I read that I called a friend to get the story on Stacey the blogger.
    She is a lawyer who was laid off by her firm about 18 months ago. She was already blogging but she stepped up her efforts when she found herself with nothing else to do.
    She also started inundating ABC with requests that they hire her or otherwise compensate her to write a column on the show. If you go way back in the archives of her blog you will see where she implores her readers to contact ABC and encourage them to hire her.
    You are correct that she began by watching the show with her friends and posting their observations, sometimes candid and funny like other blogs, but about the time she started trying desperately to get ABC to hire her, the entire tone of the blog changed.
    She has managed to sporadically get temp work at law firms in New York, but to my knowledge is still not permanently employed as a lawyer.
    She is, however, well known at ABC as someone who writes a "blue sky" version of the show in order to gain their approval, and maybe someday a job. They know she is not a very good writer, but they like her message.
    That's how they knew about her, and that's why they put her on the show.

    Darva Conger was Fleece's first victim on nationa tv-she was on his first show "Who wants to marry a millionaire?" And we all know what a prince he turned out to be...

Brad has said time and again that he had wanted to get there, but it just didn’t happen. In the end he made the right choice for him whether or not the viewers liked it.
    It was obvious Travis settled in the segment on the boat date where he said there was no chemistry with Sarah then he ended up choosing her, surprising the edit left that in because it made it obvious they were nothing more than friends. He was probably very frank with her about that before the finale cause he sure did drop her like a hot potato as soon as the filming ended and she didn't complain, at least publicly about being led on.

    Frankenfliess is too kind.. He needs to take some of that money he makes and go visit Dr. 90210...
    I was just thinking about this-that his next forray into entertainment IS in horror movies-he won't have far to look for 'talent' this time.

    Chicken Guy wing what a blast from the past!!!!!! I watched that show (didn't recall it was produced by Fleiss) and it was a trainwreck, you could tell when Darva saw Rick Rockwell their so called millionare in person he was definitely not who she wanted to marry. She went through on the last episode marrying him on TV because she really "Won" $100,000 & a 3 carat diamond ring. Their sham of marriage was immediately put an end to by her afterwards by her claiming he had misrepresented himself as a millionaire. Plus she had what she wanted money and instant fame she put to use modeling nude in Playboy for even more money!!!!!
