I don't know. I think it's probably more risky to pick a guy we know has issues because he admitted to it on his 1 on 1 date. I know I could never be with someone like that even though I wash my fruits and veggies, lol. As far as people's motives in posting, it's pretty clear that certain people want Ed to be a bad guy and it's their right to believe it just as it's my right to ignore them.
Much more interesting to me is that Ed is finally back on Monday so even if the show drags on I have something to look forward to in the end. Out of 4 of us who watch the show at work 2 of us love Ed, 1 loves Reid but has read the writing on the wall and is watching him for herself, and the other doesn't have a favorite. Everyone thought the last epi was boring although I loved the scenery.
