She can say glowing things about Ed and Kip (2 out of the F3) but when it comes to Reid all she can say is "he's a doll." I mean she has said more positive things about Juan, Tanner, Wes but seems to always leave Reid out even on a great 1on1 date that they had which she said she felt "refreshed" afterwards. Even if you feel bad for dumping someone, you still should say that you had a connection with him and that there was something there. I would feel pretty small honestly if I were Reid.
    I think both Reid and Kip are very mature, smart and intelligent men. Whatever the outcome I see them both moving on, not wallowing in it and see the brighter side of things. They both have a positive outlook and even if they did not like some of what happened at the house they were diplomatic and didn't throw anyone under the bus. Both of them are ready to settle down and have a family.

    Sometimes we ask for something in life and the universe sends us exactly what we ask for but caught up in our own ego we blow the opportunity. We'll see if Jillian was true to her word or did she deceive herself into thinking and saying she wanted something she did not. That in of itself would be a big lesson for her if that is what she did.

    Both Kip and Reid seem like good friends (we have seen them together having a good laugh a few times) and know what's going on there on some level, they get along with the guys but never gets into the drama in the house. The only time Reid was even there was when he was in the kitchen drinking water and Dave came in with steam coming out of his ears. They don't comment too much. On the other hand Ed has been shown calling Wes names and being in the middle of the drama with Dave. A contrast in edits right there.

    Jillian was lucky to find two such guys on the show for her to choose from and if she let them both go (she had to let one go) then it is her loss. If Jillian chose Ed I'd say eh! whatever, better luck next time. But if she chose Kip or Reid she made a good choice and she has her head screwed on right, and I will agree with her.

    I couldn't agree more.

    Yep! Caught it both times, esp. when she said "they had a spark right from the beginning and he smiled and made a funny face".

    Who needs words when their eyes can do the talking for them and of course the red ears .
    They communicate very well, and 70% of all our communication is non-verbal anyway.

    Oh, remember what the BL expert said too. Reid was giving out the best signals and vibes acc' to this expert. So we have an expert who agrees with us, we are not crazy on this thread, other people see it too.

    Unless of course you were F1, in which case you'd understand why Jillian is saying sweet things about all the guys she dumped while keeping relatively mum about you. Just saying....

    Or ......... TPTB have ordered this approach - it is not up to Jilian - or CH - as to who/what they can/cannot talk about - or mention - TPTB have that roll of duct tape nearby - to shut one up quickly - basically putting the Reid subject off limits to any interviewer apparently

    We know in Dr. Dandy's season he put an orchid on Tessa, if I remember during their dates in HI. Did he plant one on Bevin too? Can't remember.

    Why would they show Reid putting a flower behind her left ear if he was not f1. Are they challenging every little protocol this season? Oh yeah! Someone tossed a whole bunch of rules outside the window, but what does that mean, really? Crazy plots, revolving doors played by guys who get sent away but come back for more humiliation, angry men who bad mouth, drama kings, music promoters, 25 going on 15, what else? :shudder with that?

    But - mom doesn't get to meet any of them until close to the end Jillian may be able to talk to her mom frequently - but may be limited as to waht she can say to her

    But Mom only knows what Jillian tells her about the guys...Mom's not hiding in the closet during the dates. Well, at least I don't think so. With all rules out the window who knows?

    ETA ---CAPEGAL! Same time, same thought, where shall we meet for cokes?
