    He even downloads music from sites that the money goes to good causes. He tweeted about it one time.
    oh no...it's the BIG 5-0 ...when did this happen

    Yeah, Kip is great. I don't think anyone could say a bad word about him. But I think Jillian seems to thank all of the F3 are remarkable, so to me, it could apply to any of them. As she said in her blog, "it's easy to fall in love with more than one person when you are presented with individuals of this caliber" (my paraphrase).

    She did in an interview way back before the show finished filming and she described all 3 of her Final guys as remarkable men so yeah, it does apply to any one of them. =) And I couldn't agree more with her!

    All four discuss why there should or shouldn't be a man code (Tanner, Dave, Michael, Jake)

    Dave thinks guys today are too metro.

    They discuss who's best for Jillian:

    Tanner says Ed but that Jillian had the same look in her eyes when with Ed and Kip and none of the others.

    Micheal and Jake discuss why they prefer Kip. Both seem to be very close to Kip.

    David picks Kip but not in a big way.

    Jake comments that Kip is modest about his looks and background. Then, he talks about how Kip has never had his heart broken - it's weird - I felt like it was a Bachelor pitch for Kip?

    Kip is a great guy but something is missing in the connection with Jill and Kip...I can't describe it but it's easy to see. I saw more of a connection with Reid and Ed but the most with Ed...or at least Ed seemed the best fit for her. Reid prob is likable to a lot of girls so it's hard to say whether he got along with Jill in particular compared to other girls. I see something a little more special about the Jill-Ed connection.

    Re: Bachelorette 5 Thoughts and Comments

    I just now finally got the courage to watch Ed’s date with Jillian in the last episode and I thought the parents were fine and I think Ed kind of look like his dad somewhat. They seem like nice people but I am just not feeling Ed @ all. He just rubs me off negatively, how sad is that when I don’t even know him but on TV. Let me say upfront that I have been a staunch Reid fan since day one when he acted like he didn’t want the rose from Jillian – that caught my attention.
    I really think Jillian thought Ed was it @ the beginning because Ed fit her “type” and Ed had lots of fans after their 1 on 1. But Ed was never really excited to get the roses, just go back and watch him receiving roses from Jillian. There was one he even said “oh ok” (way to show interest).The very first time he gave her a somewhat full hug was when he came back and even that was eh. For the fact that Jillian felt the need to always say that he’s exactly my type means to me that she was trying way too hard. I think Ed wanted to leave, he didn’t think he’ll get that far and secondly I don’t think he really was that into Jillian or maybe he was but I just didn’t see it. He told the producers and they ran with it staging urgent work need and the return. Ed was a nice young man before he left from what we saw, I think because he was accepted back, he became Ed the cocky dude, again this is how they decided to portray him. Even before Ed left his edit was not perfect- that honor goes to Kip. I don’t know if Jillian will pick Ed, but I have this gut feeling that it won’t be happening not after what happened in the last episode. Ed says one thing and his actions shows another, otherwise while would he profess his love and yet when it was time to show some romance, he couldn’t get it together. Ed maybe telling the truth about his love for Jillian but he sure does have a strange way of showing it – by falling asleep on her.
    Kip’s actions are exactly his words – he says he will not be ready to propose @ the end and his actions show that. He’s a neat guy but I just don’t see anything between Kip and Jillian. There’s no excitement to watch their date. Funny, the dates are always action packed but yet dull, I am not sure why that is. They never really gave them much alone time on their dates and when they alone, it’s just awkward- you can hardly hear what he’s saying and Jillian is just so tense-it’s like a first date every time they are together. Jillian maybe in awe of him so not Kip’s fault. Their best date together was the 1 on 1. But if Jillian chooses Kip, then maybe we didn’t see what she saw.
    Now when Jillian is with Reid, they are always touching, kissing, smiling, arguing about one thing or the other that occurred that we were not privy to. It seems so natural it’s like they forget the cameras are even there. Jillian teases Reid and he comes back right @ her. There’s no tension and a lot of us noticed this right off even before his 1 on 1, but now it looks like the general public has also come to that conclusion I believe. Reid may not be ones favorite guy but there’s no denying the fact that there’s easy chemistry between these two. And Jillian her self mentioned that she’s herself when she’s with Reid and to think we only just found out that she does indeed have a pet name for him – Honey Bear – how cute is that!
    Now, if I have to go into all the reasons why I think Reid would be the last man standing, this will be a very long post. I think we all know why but most notable is the fact that she has said that she threw her list of her ideal man away; we know that Ed matches her list to T and Reid matches most of if not all of the things she mentions in her interviews. But if it ends up that Jillian falls harder for either Kip or Ed, not only would she have changed her mind about what she really wanted in a mate but it maybe that she really cared more for them.

Hope alphabet doesn't take them down.... remember that Bevin video released before the Finale? Anyway, I am convinced there is a happy ending here - however, hard they had to work to achieve it. (sigh)

    Thanks for the heads-up! Is that footage from college or something?

    Also, it's so weird re-watching those old clips of he and Jilly, when they were still getting to know one another and weren't totally themselves. That conversation about astrological signs: kind of awkward!! But it's "remarkable" how much their rapport has progressed/developed throughout all of this.

    While Kip would be my pick for me, not sure that he and Jillian are on the same page. You shouldn't have to try to find flaws in a guy so that you feel like you deserve him. I would be shocked if Kip is her pick in the end. Obviously, the spoilers told us otherwise, but frankly, based on what I saw on the screen, I expected him to go home on Monday. For two weeks running, they've pared down his screen time and focused mostly on Ed and to a lesser degree, Reid.

    Until Ed had the bedroom meltdown, I assumed he was F1 based on the last 2shows and I think she was devastated that they didn't have the "magic" in that area. I assumed she'd give Reid a few more days to see if he could find the words she wanted to hear. I could see cutting him if it was the last day and she had to make a final pick but I don't understand why he didn't get more time. So, this leads me to believe the end is all scripted for maximum drama.
