    I wouldn't lump myself in with the ssleuths, but as a point of example.....I was a Jeremy fan yet knew from a single photo that he was being sent home at F3, liked De in Brad's season yet knew from the day of the AFTR taping that he chose no one, though Mel was okay and found that she was F1, only later to hear through the grapevine that she would end F2. So for me, sometimes I have favorites and sometimes I don't, but either way I don't let it interfere with my sleuthing.......guess its the accountant in me!..lol
    Thank you, Kresge! I've been stewing about the posts saying sleuthers were influenced by their dislike for Ed, especially with most of those posts coming from folks who didn't join in on the sleuthing. Those of us sleuthing from the beginning of this season ending up both liking and disliking Ed. Point in fact: Me - Ed non-fan; Guardian Angel - Ed fan. The personal preferences definitely colored our OPINION. NOT our SLEUTHING.

    I really love ED!!!!!!!!!
    Love it!

Jill has dug her heels in and has gone on and on about having a great judge of character so she's in it for the long haul.
    ITA. She knows all the rumors but she's stubborn and is going to do whatever it takes to make this work and "prove" that she's a good judge of character. I'm also assuming that if she really does move to Chi within the next few months, it'll be to watch over him and make sure there aren't even more girls coming out of the woodwork. This just all seems like a disaster to me because she'll be stuck in Chi by herself, with no friends or family of her own, with a questionable partner who has to "travel" a lot for work. Scary for her.

    Carrie: What an amazing observation!
    Big: But the thing is, after awhile, you just wanna be with the one who makes you laugh.

    If Ed is her choice and Kip is dating an ex, do you think Reid will be the bachelor? I was just reading on another board that the casting for the upcoming bachelor had a well publicized casting call for Bachelorettes in the Philly suburbs. Thoughts?

She is beginning to look more insecure, defiant and clueless about some things. She's going to need a ton of luck to get through this starting tonight esp. with the viewers lashing at her in their comments. Can you hear Ed tell "don't listen to the comments, I don't have to be good, I just have to (con)make you believe I'm good"
    I am sure Ed has enjoyed the "arrangement" w/ Jill for the last two months. He has had very limited time w/ her and I'm sure when they are together they have loads of fun. However, he has still had lots of his "own" time due to the restrictions of being together until the show's airing is completed. Going forward will be the true test for both of them.

    Hilarious the Takeaway Close, so is Ed a born salesman?

    or as Kenny Rogers once said

    "You got to know when to hold em, know when to fold em,
    Know when to walk away and know when to run."
