Everyone interprets the video differently. What I saw wasn't a love story. I saw that she settled on the only guy out of the final 4 who was willing to move to her town.
Since that was the deciding factor in her break-up with Brad, it makes sense now that she had to (in her mind) pick Jef.

I agree with you 110%. It's one of the things I find so unlikeable about The Bachelor/ette.
There are all these gawwwgeous people with spectacular bodies (please, these are NOT mainstream folks) and incredible jobs/upbringings. They get their 15 minutes of fame --or 15 weeks depending on how far they go --, and of the final 2 or 3 who don't get the Final Rose, they select the next Bachelor/ette.
Unless you're Emily! She got the Final Rose AND got retread (great choice of words, BTW) into the next Bachelorette.
I get the fact that they want to go for ratings by casting a Fan Favorite, but c'mon. WHY do these beautiful people get a SECOND chance? Are there not enough single people out in the universe to give FIRST chances to?

Impossible things are being done every day.
On the new people, I wish we would get new ones. But Fleiss has publicly said that won't happen. There is a built in base with re-treads and it is working for them. They will continue until it doesn't. Also, Jen was a F1 that was then given her own season. And if the rumors are true, Roberto will be a F1 who gets a second chance. Interesting that starting with Brad we seem to not only have re-treads, but re-treads who are getting a second chance.
The Bachelorettes have always been re-treads; it is only the Bachelors that have been new. Fleiss recently tweeted that the decision is close and he is listening to the feedback. He even asked if we wanted another Lorenzo or Matt - meaning a new player that brought in zero ratings as far as he was concerned. My guess it will be a re-tread, probably from Emily's season.

It's still really funny to me how these rumors get started. Everyone said that Roberto was a lock for the next Bachelor because he had already signed the paperwork. Now we find out that it is not true and he has a new girlfriend.
If its going to be someone from Emily's season then I really have to say I hope it is Arie!
