    I have a feeling that the opinions I've formed on some of these guys will change at the M&G. I just want to keep thinking Kip is delicious, though.

    I agree, and there are some of the guys (not sure of all of their names) who don't look attractive/interesting at all just from the M&G photos...

    I brought my post over from the sleuthing thread. More appropriate here. This was regarding an article mentioned in that thread.

    Well I hope there is a semblance of truth in this article. After all the goody-two-shoes misleads of the past two years, it's about time we are able to watch with some honesty in our experience. If that means we actually see Jillian pull some shady stuff and realize that is what she is doing, I say Go For It! Gotta pluck those thorns off the rose stems and try not to bleed while doing it. She may bleed and we'll see that too; or she may just play the game - either way it will be refreshing.

    ETA: Back to an impression while reading sleuthing material: did you read the customer comments on Mark's business page? One said he liked working with him because he was hard-nosed and pushed hard. To me that could translate into he is a brat - especially from the facial expression I see when looking at the M&G photos. My opinion, of course. I hope he turns out to be a regular guy.

    I couldn't agree more.

    The various iterations of this show have proven that the stated premise--not only to fall in love with The One but also to become For Real Engaged and ultimately Happily Married with 2.0 Children (re: Trista and Ryan) is the aberration. The "twists"--i.e. predetermined character roles, backstage directing, on-camera poking and prodding to elicit emotions, finale outcome negotiations (including plane tickets and rings on strings), choices of whom to cut when, etc.--are actually Fleiss's lifeblood.

    Since last season was the biggest shark-jumper (to date), our Jilly got a bird's eye view of what the show is really all about. One reason why I never am an advocate of recycled rejectees becoming the subsequent season's "star" is because audience sympathy usually turns on the Bachelor(ette) when s/he performs Fleiss's dirty deeds. But that's the nature of the beast. I do think that Jilly appears to have more cojones than Jason did so hopefully she'll give Fleiss a run for his money.

    I thought Tessa and Andy had a shot at the Real Thing because Tessa was (from the beginning) so evasive of Fleiss's vaseline-coated camera lenses. Too bad Andy was of the "I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille" post-show mentality. At any rate, I maintained at the time and I still maintain now that it's a fluke when the premise of the show is fulfilled--that two basically romantic types, who are level-headed enough to make a hothouse romance blossom into a marriage in real life, find each other on tv. The odds are greater that two adventurous types who are healthily skeptical about the process and the filming of a "reality" tv show actually bond over the absurdity of their shared experience. I doubt that Jilly has the romantic illusions about this show that some viewers still maintain. I wish her well in this adventure. Sometimes I think the viewers take this show more seriously than the participants.

    Personally, I think the show jumped the shark with Matt and the obvious set up with Shayne. That was the worst season ever.

    I also loved Andy and Tessa and thought they could/would really make it. It was also at the end of that season that I found this board and became far less naive about the whole thing.

    Help!! Does anyone know how to upload a picture at the proper size? I've been trying to put a pic on the Fun with Jillian thread, but it keeps coming up as a thumbnail. The size of the file is under "100," so I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
