Besides being fun, analyzing the edit frequently supports and verifies the sleuthing of the hard data (screencaps, the identification of locations, etc.)
With that said, let's analyze the edit! Sometimes it can get crazy , somethings it can get confusing and bewildering , sometimes- just sometimes - it is right on - and then sometimes it is totally screwed up like last season which tells us that something is terribly wrong with the process and the love story itself.
However, for those who enjoy this kind of thing, it is rarely boring - so jump right in as everybody's opinion is valid and valuable.
To start with, I noticed a few things:
1. In the preview clip we see hunky Jake the pilot telling us how important he thinks it is to be a friend. Of course, that is exactly what Jillian espoused during Jason's season and is supposedly why he dumped her. Therefore, the viewer is cued to believe that Jake could really be the final one.
Now the sleuthers already know that something happens with Jake, and he doesn't go the distance - tricky, tricky Fleiss.
2. We don't get to see the last 5 guys exit the limo. In fact, we hardly get to see them at all except for the weird interaction with Tanner and the foot fetish, yet we know that 3 of the 5 are in the F4.
3. Big trend perhaps starting....last season we didn't get a 1-1 interaction with Melissa at the M&G, yet she was the first F1. People argued that she couldn't possibly be the F1 because she had not had that 1-1, and that had never happened before.
We have seen a picture of Reid talking to Jillian, but we didn't see it. Reid definitely looks from screencap evidence to be a distinct possibility for F1.
Could he be?
We need to watch the editing!
All right, I have gotten started with a few things that might impact. What things did you notice in the edit for the premiere?
