    Bachelorette 5 Thoughts and Comments

    The old thread was so massive it seemed necessary to start a new one.

    Please keep in mind that this is a spoiler forum.
    If your "thought or comment" is "Jillian and X are really well suited", then there really is no need to post it in a spoiler thread.

    Thank you

    From the old thread:

    ITA! I love Jillian but i'll never understand why she would let Reid go if she was feeling more for him than the other two. She could have given Reid the chance to meet her family and get that last chance date to see if he would open up the way she wanted him to but she let him go.
    This sums it up right here: she WASN'T feeling more for him than the other two. The end. Viewers might be, but she wasn't, which is why she wasn't willing to give him more days to open up. She had two other guys she'd rather spend that time with. Whether you love Reid or not, this truly appears to be the case.

    But this is "reality" tv, and things aren't always as they appear (or as they are edited to appear.....) I don't think anything can be taken at face value.

    Yes Jillian chose Ed and Kip and let Reid go, obvious
    however:
    1) she needed a safe F1 (Kip she totally trusts him and even if he doesn't propose he will date her)
    2) Ed ILY and that he would propose so even though the chemistry is off at least she will get a proposal and that is what the TPTB want
    3) She may have very well kept the option to bring Reid back if the LCDs don't prove Kip or Ed to be her chosen
    4) Never have seen such a strange F3 departure, very emotional for Jillian but Reid seemed sure he would get another chance some how.

    So no its not just that obvious. Very possible its been partially planned for Reid to reappear and though Jillian will lose the chance for him to meet her family she may already be attached enough to him to be okay with that.
    She also knows Reid needs a "kick in the butt" and maybe this was part of the plan, anything goes these days after the Brad/Jason/Matt scenarios.

    You really think Jillian thinks Kip is a safe choice? She has been mentioning more than once that she is afraid that he will break her heart. I don't see how he is a safe choice since she seems to be afraid that if she picks him, he will will either dump her or reject her. JMO.

    Several people did post reasons numerous times why she would cut him at F3 if she cared more for him, which apparently many are choosing to ignore, as is their right. Once again, if Jill feared that Reid would not be able to tell her he loved her and/or propose by the FRC, she risked falling/being in love (with him) by herself. If she did that, her choice at FRC would be to accept a proposal/commitment from someone (Ed or Kip) when she was in love with someone else (Reid), or be humiliated at FRC by choosing a guy, professing her love and having him tell her he still wasn't ready. She didn't want to put herself in that position.

    ITA in past season you could have absolutely, reasonably assumed things like "Brad chose both Jenni and Deanna to spend the most time with obviously he has a strong connection to both those girls" - nope, not true - or "Jason proposed to Mel because they're head over heels in love with each other. He never would've let Molly walk away otherwise" - nope, not true at all

    Although Kip as been played up to be "too good for her" and one who always dumps the girl he has been very reassuring as of late to Jillian and he is safe in that at the FRC he will at least accept the rose and want to date. He was given an edit of no real doubts left on the last epi, so yes he has morphed into the safe one as was Jason in Deanna's season, so really more of an F2 edit. Ed however doesn't seem to be getting an F1 edit, though he may be. However totally possible she chooses any of the three.

    they are keeping this one under good wraps so far

    She still had those doubts in the back of her mind after Monday's date though. She kept saying how she did not want to get her heart broken again.

    They are keeping this one under wraps, I agree. Job well done for them, I gotta say. lol
