There is still 6 episodes left I am sure that he will ask about Ali plus the editing we don't know how much he did say we didn't see just throwing that possibility out there.Originally Posted by eowenc;3942716;Let's get back to Chris on his thread. After rewatching last weeks episode I noted some things about Chris and Ali's date. Don't read me wrong I'm a Chris fan but I think to be successful on this show you need to (Excuse me 'Father's Day' phone call interupted my train of thought) be good at speed dating and relationship building. Relationship building includes the emotional and physical elements. Chris' slow process at the physical side is frustrating me (I'm a little shy too so I get it) because on this show you need to get involved quickly. I found myself yelling at Chris 'just kiss her will you'! And I did that more than once at first vieweing but after further review. The first time Chris wanted to kiss Ali she went for the hug instead: first example was after the phone call to Dad, Chris was open to the kiss but Ali went for the hug, then after she gave him the rose again he was open she did the hug. OK for the purposes of this show you must touch her face and direct the kiss. I can't believe I'm actually giving kissing coaching lessons.
Finally we get to the actual kisses and they were edited to be pretty lame. OK I agree the scene was very romantic and it actually was great but we were shown only 2 short kisses and then finally a kiss and a half before Chris' PI.
So how do we interpret the date if you don't have a favorite. Pretend for a moment you're an average viewer and have been looking forward to Chris and Ali having time alone. She's sick and he nurtures her back to a point she can't wait to go out for the rest of the date. They share his favorite meal and her favorite singer does a private concert (that guy has a wonderful voice). It's all romantic all night but lacking the 'sparks' I want to see and then finally a few sparks are allowed. What do you all think? Am I reading this all wrong?
He's a master at the telling his story at the best pace but he's not asking Ali anything about herself. It's all one sided so far IMHO and I'm a big Chris fan.
