Here's another possibility... Emily and Arie really did spend the night in the fantasy suite, and they deliberately chose not to air it to surprise the viewers on the live AFRS. Maybe Emily doesn't offer either guy a final rose... then offers Arie a final rose on the live show, because that's who she's been attracted to all along. The previous leads have always offered a final rose to someone they're very attracted to. Maybe Arie will get the final rose, or as some have suggested, maybe Chris Harrison gets the final rose.
I was in Scottsdale over the weekend and I was surprised how many negative things I heard about him. I would be surprised if he received the final rose based on what I heard when I was there. I had lunch with a friend whose parents live in the same neighborhood as his family and the neighborhood gossip is that they were not impressed with Emily at all. Arie is definitely attached to his family, so much so that no one sees him picking up and moving to NC. I do think she's attracted to him, but he's dated women just as attractive as her. So maybe he's not into it. Who knows?
Emily already said she would be happy to move to AZ (or Utah, or wherever) so I don't see that one being the stumbling block.
I do not think he is the one to get the final rose but I don't think it has anything to do with what some people in Scottsdale might be saying about him.
I posted last week that I think she already knew she was going for Jeff. (this is my speculation) and did not want to make him (his mormon parents) pissed off by having Arie with her in a suite with no camera's. Yes I really think she is going to pick Jeff, especially since last week's show. She even agreed with him that they were perfect for each other and just how she acted.
It does seem obvious by her statements. I'm hoping it's misleading editing. I don't dislike Jef, I just like Arie more and since I'm too old to go after him if he was rejected, well . . .
