I was wondering that same exact thing last night. I even posted a journal-type entry in the Thoughts & Comments in General section. I'll repost it here since it is more fitting...Originally Posted by VelvetBex;2991490;
I have to admit that this season my perspective was quite jaded. I'm not sure if I want to sleuth as I watch DeAnna's season. Maybe I'll come back at the end and read through...that way I'd know the truth yet still enjoy the process without the extra info to cloud my perception. I really don't know what to do...
My friend came over tonight to watch the FRC. She liked Shayne and didn't like Chelsea...she was happy with the ending and thought they made a cute couple.
I, on the other hand, was pulling for Chelsea even though I knew Shayne was F1. I felt like I was forcing myself to see a "stronger" connection between Matt & Chelsea, so that I could prove to myself that B12 was authentic and not a farce. At the beginning of the season, I liked Shayne. Watching the FRC, I was somewhat jealous of my friend. I was sad that my view of Shayne had changed so much. Seeing my friend enjoy the show made me think, "You probably could have been enjoying this just as much had you not dug & dug & dug for info this season."
I am torn ...on one hand, I'd like to know the truth (info regarding Shayne's connections to Fleiss, etc.) yet on the other hand, I wish I could have enjoyed tonight for what it was (fake or not).
This season was the absolute worst ever IMO (that I have watched). I felt no serious connection and I just plain didn't buy it.
I'm contemplating not sleuthing for DeAnna's just so that I can enjoy whatever Fleiss wants to dish out. I'm so disappointed right now that I'd gladly take a fake happily ever over a burst bubble.
Please don't misintrpret this...I LOVE this website (& everyone involved...so many funny/smart/interesting people). This is a journal type entry more than anything...
I'm just so sad/disappointed about it all.
