    Oh, they mentioned Reid alright in the mother board. I'm so p***** with ABC. Have you read their recap of Reid's date? They made him look like a total moron, they made it sound like the date was a total disaster and they can't understand after so many "red flags" that Jillian kept the guy because she claims they're on the same playing field. THey completely threw Reid under the bus. In contrast, I went back to read about Ed, he's their GOLDEN CHILD, Ed can do no wrong, poor Ed didn't want to go, but had no choice, they're falling all over for Ed is sickening. On Kip, they're being nice to him too, except they're emphazising his sexual appeal. Remember, those recaps are written by an ABC minion, probably, the same one that writes Jillian's blog. I'm afraid to find out what dirty trick they have up their sleeve for Reid in the end.

    Are you talking about the ABC Recap on the ABC site? They threw Reid under the bus? Usually they are pretty nice about the F1 in those recaps.

    Yes, it was very, very unflattering. Like he was a total weirdo.

    ! Oh I think it's a chore, see I've been alone for 10 years now (widowed) and dating in younger years was definitely stressful sometimes. I have truly enjoyed being by myself so far maybe because my life is warpped around my kids for now. Sorry guys for going off topic

    Ugh that sucks.I too am afraid for Reid now and until the end.Ed is their golden child I am not too surprised by that because they made it possible for him to return and I am not sure they would have done that for Kip or Reid.

    Oh, okay. That's very unfortunate to hear. I don't know if it points to him as not being the F1 but I don't think ALOT of people really read that recap anyway so maybe it won't matter....

    They have to be kidding! That date was one of the most enjoyable I've watched on this series!

    OK. I read it and I swear that was the lamest re-cap of a series I've ever read!

    Just went to read it and it's not very flattering what they say. They even said despite all the red flags, Jillian decides to give him a rose. Who writes these blogs anyways?

    When do you think Kiptyn says 'I never questioned anything until now'...when Ed comes back or later at the FRC?

    The F3 guy has to be the one that proposes, because all 3 guys weren't seen back home until the end of that month. Whoever that guy is, he causes Jillian to pause and that could hurt the final 1 guy (Reid) and for some reason, I think Jillian had decided not to be engaged and date perhaps all 3 or something? I do think she picked someone, but now I don't think she's engaged.

    Even if blue suit guy is Ed and looking at a ring, doesn't automatically mean he is f1. F3 guy is supposedly going to her room to propose so he's going to have a ring in his hand. Then you have the f1 guy who also comes with a ring, maybe. I would venture a guess that they may never show the f1 guy with the ring. If the brown suit guy is in BI and also on his way to meet her, then does he have a ring in his pant pocket or his jacket pocket?

    By showing f3 with the ring in blue suit, the idea is to mislead the average viewer into thinking he is f1 and get them excited since vieweres have seen Ed and Kip more than Reid until Ed left. They may even play up Ed's return to the show and show him as the one who came back for her.

    What better way to swing the story back to Ed starting in Spain and Maui only to have him sent away at f3. Then for the finale to get viewers to come back they will promote Kip as f1 during family meet and LCD and make it look like Reid may not be the f1. To keep the suspense they decide to bring f3 to propose and confuse the viewers. Then in the last five minutes Jillian makes up her mind and accepts Reid as f1.

    Here's the problem with the "there was no romance" and "affected the intimacy" by CH being part of f3 storyline. The "there was no romance" is probably Wes getting sent off in Spain that makes sense. If we take CH's "affected by lack of intimacy" and that's the reason she gives for sending the f3, will he really humiliate himself and really show up like a bumbling fool to propose to her? It just doesn't make sense. Plus if CH has not been part of the f3 rose ceremonies in the past few seasons why would he show up now to have that chat with her? Are there similar landscapes in Spain and HI that could be misleading?

    We see SC of Jillian in a bold printed orange and black dress where she is seen crying on a bench. Then there is another one of her in a bright orange top, we don't see the rest of her dress. Do we know where they SCs are from?

    No matter how many times we go around it, Jillian's comment about "someone who will love her not just today but forever" to me sounds like she is saying "someone who will always be with me" and hinting at Ed's leaving for a while there being an issue for her. Unless PTB are giving her scripts to say things to throw us off completely.

    I still don't see Jillian ultimately trusting Ed to stand by her always after he chose to "run"(as she put it).

    In this situation, hypothetically speaking, it is how I would have handled it personally so I may be projecting that on to Jillian. I see her as someone who says what she means unless she has lost that in Fleiss's clutches and is saying all kinds of stuff to help with the ratings.
