I'll give this a shot even though I haven't waded through any other responses.Originally Posted by seeker;3552243;
What I wish for: Ed has the first FD. His parent's do get to meet Jillian in the afternoon. Ed and Jill go to FS and that's all I need to know about that!
Kip and Reid have next two FDs. Someone, sometime gets ill and the date doesn't go as planned.
At the final 3 RC, Jill lets Ed go. Her date was almost a week ago (if I've got the timing down) so it doesn't matter that his parents were flown out; which is a drop in the bucket for TPTB $$ wise. Still too many questions about his work commitment.
Kip and Reid are final 2. Kip won't show Jill he loves her and is F2. No surprise to either of them.
Reid is F1, and Jillian tells him that she didn't think he was ready so no engagement. The surprise is that Reid finally does mention love, and asks Jill to continue the relationship in the real world.
I know I didn't correlate FD order or filming schedule, just a scenario that would make me happy and seems plausible.
