    Well, an inverse relationship perhaps... When Pinocchio lies, his nose gets longer....I'll leave the rest for you to ponder...

    The participants of the revolving door are almost always show darlings in the first show they are on and then vilified in the second. Wonder if Jillian will be redeemed or if she will go further under the bus with Ed?

    I'm getting a little queasy about what they may be planning for Ed, and possibly even Jillian. After reading some of that contract and what they can do to you, and make you do, and after the bus that ran over him in the last episode, not to mention production sources spreading rumors about him, I think he may be in trouble.
    I really don't think they always do that. We still like quite a few of the leads, I think if the lead was a PITA, they get a horrible edit, if they were fine, their edit stays fine. Andy, Andrew, Meredith, Trista, Matt, Charlie, Byron, and many others have retained a good edit. Sure, they get flayed a bit for some of the things but no where near the Jason/Deanna/Brad scenarios. Jilly seems like a sweetie so I'm not too worried for her.

    If anything, I think they'll show her confused and waffling, not anything too horrible.

    They're not the same, dude! Get it straight.
    Well, it is hard to remember your script when you are tired and suburned.

    I think one can tell someone they are falling in love with them and ILY at the same time, that does not seem at all confusing to me.
    She honestly looked completely confused and shocked when she heard that message. I don't think she was expecting it. That might just be me though

    Man, please, he has a teleprompter, clearly. Otherwise, where else is he looking when speaking to her?

    Jillian sobbed when ed left. She cried when she let Reid go.

    I guess she liked it. She did keep him.

He did not fit her idea of what she wanted and needed. That's why the feelings scared her so much and without the assurance that he was falling just as hard she became insecure. There is no doubt in my mind that she loves him. She just panicked because she didn't want to be left high and dry. He also panicked IMO. THE MORE SHE PUSHED THE MORE HE HELD BACK BUT IT REALLY WAS A MATCH> HOPE IT WORKS OUT>
    Is it a fiction movie or bachelorette reality show? She is smart, mature and independent. She made her decision for her F1/F2 and I believe she'll choose one of them as her F1. There is no conspiracy and no panick. Sometimes people just let their imagination run wild.

    Regarding the bolded, I want someone to give him MY number so I can finance some of those multi million dollar listings! Hey Reid can provide jobs and get the economy moving!
    IMO, I think it was easier for him to say it to the cameraman than to her for several reasons:


    1. he was somewhat in shock of what had just happened, chatty people have a tendency to babble when they're in shock

    2. the production staff was engaging him in conversation about what just happened and he was probably censoring himself less than usual because he was trying to process his feelings

    3. it is easier to say that you're falling in love when you are talking "about" it than it is to say it to the person who may or may not be returning that feeling

    4. I think it was said in terms of an "OMG" realization that although he knew he was feeling that way the fact that he hadn't actually, literally verbalized it had caused him to (potentially) lose the person he felt that way about---eek.

    ENTIRELY my opinion.

    Oh boy, she loved it!! Seriously. IMO, it's the only reason she kept him too. She wants that ring and that proposal. She was eating it up.
