Feelings..check. Chemistry...check. Future goals and plans...maybe no so much? With Ed it was the opposite almost. Feelings...sorta check. Future goals and plans...check. Chemistry....maybe not so much? Technically, that leaves the door wide open for his return, because Reid can change her POV about his intentions, but you can't manufacture feelings that aren't there. Now, the final dates may change her feelings for the other guys and make them even stronger, but at that point that she let Reid go, those are the reasons she gave.
    Interesting take! I wonder if she'll be measuring these factors against Kip and Ed on their LCDs.

    Make matters worse for what man?


    The point is the handler must have been with Ed while he was texting in order to have seen it. According to sdl he was supposed to be making things better. So if the handler was there it had to have been cleared and if they know he had a phone I would think they would have taken it from him right afterwards. So it doesn't add up. If Ed wasn't using his own phone or tptb took the phone away how do we know they actually came from Ed then?

    If sdl's source life was so bad that he had to tell someone why would he give the information out to someone that may spread it all over the internet. Surely if his life was so bad at the time trying to fix the mess he would not want the information out. So why would someone knowing someone gave them information about something that was upsetting them spread that news around? I sure would have kept it private not wanting to make it worse for me source but that is just me.

    But if she is happy now it doesn't matter what you or I think.

Curious.
    I wouldn't say that I have a favourite (bachelor), but that I have a favourite relationship. When the season first started, I was leaning toward Kip and Jillian, but that all changed when I saw her with Reid. For whatever reason, I just believe in those two.

    sueb1961: If they're not true, what is the point of making up these salacious rumors for all of the sources involved? They could have easily been trashing Wes who was already chosen as the designated whipping boy this season or heavens to betsy, why not attack St Reid or Kiptyn? Why Ed? This is one of the many reasons I think the rumors are true: no reason for them not to be imo.

    Respectfully,This seems unfair to Jill, and ED, no?
    She did not keep ED because he said ILY.If anything she would have cut him and saved him any further hurt down the road if she wasn't feeling it for ED.

    It doesn't make Reid's case for a "possible "return and happily ever after any stronger either by saying Jill just
    wants a ring and proposal, does it? Because in your theory if Reid returns, is he also saying ILY and proposing?
    Because if he doesn't propose or say ILY,, then I guess Jill still will reject him, no?
    As far as ED, he seems like a Guy in love to me..
    I think people should cut him some slack , sometimes guys in love look alittle goofy when they profess it ..just makes him more genuine to me.. I think he is like a love sick school boy myself.. Extremely endeering..

    IMO, the producers wanted it spread. It's drumming up interest in their finale. Based on the last few seasons, I'd say the edit is moving along according to plan.
    If Ed is F1, he and Jillian are under the bus, and media and audience darling Reid may be the Bachelor.

    Brad and not chosing...under the bus, Deanna=Bachelorette
    Deanna and Jesse...under the bus. Jason=bachelor
    Jason and Molly...under the bus. Melissa=bachelorette but passed the torch to Jillian=bachelorette

    Well, I'd settle for ANYTHING with a discernible theme at this point.

    Folks:
    after watching these episodes do you really think Kip's oh so snobby mother would allow Kip to disgrace the family name by becoming the next bachelor, horror of horrors. What would that look like to have her son behaving semi disgraceful, look how he has been such a gentleman this time around, wouldn't be able to get away with it on his own story.

    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.
    So Reid was able to verbalize his feelings while in shock. Will he be able to tell Jilly to her face once he's over that shock? Or will this be when he says "I let my fears get in the way" and he will never have told her?
