Sure, the editors have left out huge, important parts of their relationship. They have emphasized that they only have physical chemistry and that Kip and Jill have different families. They discuss her feeling he is "perfect" over and over. However, they rarely show a whole conversation between them and yet somehow Kip is in the final 2. I think the editors are seriously downplaying this relationship!! Her choosing Kip is to me about as obvious a choice as any season of this show ever. I'm talking obvious like Andy choosing Tessa obvious. IMO, she really loves this guy!

    On the other hand, the edit makes Ed look like an alcoholic frat boy who also struggles with workaholism, and ED. Yikes! I'm sure he doesn't really have all those issues, either! The edit of Ed certainly doesn't lead one to believe he will be her pick. . . really, think about it.
    I totally agree..I think she'll pick Kiptyn..I think with all the drama people are overlooking their love story..Didn"t they show Kiptyn say something like lets just get married and have babies? (something like that?)..

However, I count myself as one of the "average viewers" for most of the season; I didn't find FORT until a few weeks ago. Why did I seek and find FORT? Because of Reid! As his storyline grew, and I saw the sparks in their first 1:1 date, it became apparent to me that I was watching something a lot more real than I was used to watching on the Bachelorette/Bachelor. I think what we've seen of the Reid/Jillian relationship is more than enough for the "average" viewer to latch onto as something special and root for a comeback.
    I don't think Reid was "hidden" so much as there was nothing there to show. Jillian let him go at F3 for a reason .... if he comes back and get's rejected again, sorry, but that's his fault. It's like begging for somebody to take you back once they've dumped you, if they're "just not that into you" you're asking to be humiliated.

    Nope. Because, Jillian said that she wasn't looking for a proposal. That she was fine if the guy wasn't ready, but wanted some indication that he saw a future together. Kiptyn made it clear in his video message to her that he's seeing a future together.

    Sorry, but her excuse wasn't "she's just not that into you." It was "it's your fault because you can't express your emotions." Hence his return.
    My favorites: Reid and Kiptyn

    A guy saying, "WOW, baby, you have an AWESOME A$$! or I LOVE your A$$, baby!" is a compliment..

    That scary stalker face he gave her while using an entire sentence of cuss words to describe her bum was just frightening.

Really, I do not think David is the first man in the history of the world to make a comment about a girl's butt. Sure that might make a girl uncomfortable, but she could have laughed it off or flat out told him to shut up. They didn't need to drag it out the way they did at the MTA. Just my opinion though!
    It all goes back to what I said when we first saw this play out...there are okay ways to say something like this, and not okay ways. If I am in a restaurant and some guy I know from one of the offices comes up to me and tells me my a** is great in my jeans that is creepy. If my boyfriend or husband does tells me that then it is okay. Also telling her that was not the only thing inappropriate in that scenario--he goes on to make comments about her chest and to touch her.

    I think ABC's point at highlighting it the way that they did was to show just how stupid and hypocritical his whole "man code" crap was. You can't tell Jillian that someone may be there for the wrong reasons but you can make her feel very uncomfortable with sexual remarks. Juan was able to sum it up very well with his comments.

    I think it's the way he said it & that he was the one who said it. Does that make sense??? I'm guessing that you wouldn't be crazy about a guy who's a bit aggressive, that you're not interested in, talking about your t*ts & *ass. Maybe you wouldn't mind & that's OK, but I'd rather someone like that just tell me I look nice. If it were my boyfriend, well that's another matter.

    People can get very creative in their wording when trying not to hurt somebody's feelings - if she really felt something more for him than she did for Kip and Ed, she would have taken a chance and kept him around longer IMO
