    The thing that bothers me ... is we still do not really know how Brooks stood out over the other 24 guys that made her choose him for the first 1 on 1 date.

    I do see though that at this point it seems that Des and/or the producers are pushing us towards Brooks in a variety of ways ... but I still don't see what propelled her in his direction.

    I agree we weren't shown anything at that first meeting, but just a guess that they had a conversation at the cocktail party that they decided to hide from us, but something must have clicked to make her pick him for the first date.

    You may remember better than myself regarding prior seasons, but as a rule are we shown something ahead of time why the lead picks whoever they do for the first date? I admit my memory is horrible as far as remembering all those things. I think I remember on Emily's season her picking Chris for the first date, but not sure why she did. Forgive me if I am wrong about her even picking Chris because I could be totally wrong. lol

    I have to say, none of the other dates have compared to the one she had with Brooks. You could tell they really just clicked right away. I hope we get to see some more dates/interactions between them soon!

    I think she likes Chris, they have shown us liking him( imho) but Brooks? nothing- I think Brooks( much like Arie) would like to be the next bachelor its a feeling I get

    But Arie wasn't the next Bachelor....

    Boy I wish he had been though! The season wouldn't have been such a snoozefest that's for sure!

    He was too busy with Courtney

    At least Seans numbers grew, Des is THE lowest ever.

    Seems like the one with the true aspirations to be the next Bachelor - was lol.

    I don't get that same vibe from Brooks at all.

    It is time to tweak the format. I can think of many things that would make this show better and not wander too far off the path.

    In the first episode hand out all the roses at the cocktail party. CH announces that everyone who does not have a rose, say your good byes. There is no suspense the first time; we don't know anyone.

    Eliminate private concert dates; they are the worst.

    Show those cool outakes as part of the show.

    Go out for beer and pizza and show them chatting about favorite movies and normal first date stuff.

    Order Chinese in, Ashley and JP had a great date doing that.

    Do something different.

    Actually I would like to see the rose ceremony eliminated altogether! Roses handed out during the dates. That will never happen. No changes will. I don't know why I waste my time with this!

    But, it is a familiar big joke. If they changed it up too much, it wouldn't be The Bachelor franchise we love to hate.

    Back to Brooks...I like his face clean shaven. You can really see his chin dimple then and he is slightly cuter.
