    Word, and all the drama really takes away from the audience really getting to know the guys and seeing the connections that Jillian is/isn't forming with them.

    Yep....its distracting instead of whatever it is supposed to be. I don't have the right word. Someone will think of it.

    That's his reasoning for pushing the drama farther and farther each season.I bet if you took a poll of all the people who watch the show,the love story would be what people would want to see.

    well, she did say about the returnee's proposal, that she owed it to herself to at least think about it, maybe Fleiss talked him into doing the RC formally like the other 2 guys to get his answer

    I want a love story... The people on all bachelor boards I visit say they want a love story... Fliess is out of touch with his audience and a complete tool!

    Fleiss sure isn't speaking for me.... this viewer wants to see a love story ( I still read the odd Harlequin to get my happy ending fix now and then )

    I think he is adding drama once again, but my bet is he knows people want a love story...and I think he is trying to deliver that this time, all wrapped in a nice dramatic bow. IMHO

    Does everyone forget that KIP is still in F2?
    <----------------------------------------------

    Anyway, Kip also tweeted on Saturday, July 18 that he was "heading to OC for a friend's wedding"....Hmmm...... coincidence?
    Can someone ask the JU poster where the wedding was?
    <---------- I post so I can see more of him

    Agreed! I think the only reason I keep watching is because I hope there IS a love story underneath it all... I want to see them make it in the real world. Though the majority of the seasons have proved otherwise
