I am with the latter part of the bolded section..............I see Reid as very genuine.Originally Posted by blasie;3552084;It is so frustrating! I see it exactly the same way. Either Reid is an accomplished actor on a par with Edward Norton or Ryan Gosling or he is the most genuine participant of this show that I've seen since I started watching at Bach10. For a self-proclaimed neurotic he is incredibly loose and open. Verbally, it seems that he has never had a thought that he hasn't expressed.
I am wondering if he and Kip have an understanding. Kip may be aware of Reid's affection toward Jillian and is really holding his spot in the line-up and will bow out now that most of the competition has been eliminated. I don't see any emotional connection on Kip's part. The way that he and Reid exchange glances and shake hands comes across to me as Kip's indicating that he has Reid's back.
This season could be subtitled "Stump the Sleuthers". Personally I hope there is no engagement because feelings cannot be sorted out and tested and confirmed in that length of time and in that environment.
The name of this show is THE BACHELOR/BACHELORETTE and with one exception that is what it produces.
