According to her, there are definite role break downs in Puertorican family and the father is the head of it. I know that Roberto grew up in USA, but some of the upbringing has to rub off. Also, his father strikes me as someone who only accepts perfection and I have a feeling that Roberto had to continously strive to be top in everything. Why would he have an interview with Ali and a Roberto trophy room? To show that only the best is accepted in this household. Someone may say, father is proud of his son, well I am mother and proud of my children (both won many awards), but I would never boast there many awards on national tv.
    I agree with the bolded - both of them are in infatuation with each other at this moment... maybe I'm naive but this could be the first step to love as long as a couple develops other sides of their relationship...of course love develops from friendship as well...both chris' and roberto's parents talked about an 'instant connection' that lead to their lovestories and they've been together for a long time...so it was possible for them why can't it be for ali and roberto?

    regarding the family dynamics - I'm sorry to keep repeating myself but I guess I will....the way Roberto described how his mom and dad are like to Ali and his response regarding Ali cooking point to him not being of the same mindset as his parents - and if i were to surmise anything from the little amount we know of him and how shy and quiet he's been a lot of his life...and how everyone that knows him keeps repeating what a great, humble, nice guy he is...including his coaches, coworkers, the guys in the house... what i would conclude is that he's more like his mom than his dad. I actually already see him trying to maneuver to please ali and cater to her needs...

    I actually would go far enough to say I hope he can hold his own in a relationship as loving and caring he is... the way he said his mom doesn't like to argue...it sounds like he may be able to hold his own...or at least believe in doing so...overall i don't think he's in love with his parent's dynamics aside from the feeling of love he sees between them

    JMO of course

RED FLAGS...Ali is getting cold feet.


    If you're on Roberto team you don't see anything wrong, and you see lots of quality conversations.
    It's like Ali was on Frank team, and she didn't understand his signals. Just sayin.
    Roberto is afraid of his father. He made a comment, if he does not approve Ali she is not for him. Also, comment "go easy on her" makes me think that if there were no cameras the questioning would be really hard and I have a feeling Ali would not pass.

    I think Ali was the first date of Jake's season... or did Vienna have the honors?

    Every season they like to do the whole "My parents' approval is very important to me. If they don't like her that is a deal-breaker, etc." I wouldn't put much stock in that as being a red flag!

    I remember that and agree. The producers talked them into putting out all the crowns and pageant paraphernalia even though they never did that and basically made them look bad. Mandy was reportedly so mad that she refused to come to the WTA. They covered that up by showing the fantasy dates afterward.

    Roberto isn't my favorite but I don't think there's any more or less chance of a successful relationship if she picked him as f1. I can't worry about after the show with these couples. Success is relative.

    I am laughing, mind you, when I say this, but you would too, if your kid was F4 on a HT date on the Bach/ette and the producer told you to.
    Those unsuspecting parents get set up sometimes really big time..... and especially when a suggestion is put to them in such way that it may sound rather harmless.

    I am recalling Mandy F3 on Jesse Palmer's season. That was a perfectly sweet young lady. We never saw anything negative on her edit. She had been in beauty pageants and had won scholarships to help pay for her education. However, by the time the producers got through with the parents and the suggested "pageant room" Mandy and her parents looked shallow.

    ETA: We were thinking of the same thing!

    Good point. I loved Mandy too. She was a sweetheart.

    When Ali and Roberto recognize in the words of Wayne Dyer, " Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you." , than this relationship has a chance to succeed. However, coming of the reality TV show to have a chance in unconditional love is nonexistent. They should never get engage. It just makes a mockery out of true love. They are long way from that kind of it. Personally love Chris. I think out of all those guys he truly understood what love is and he was willing to share. Sad that Ali did not get it.

    I agree. I think he wanted her, to love him, be interested in him and not because of his family or his backstory.

    He knew that if he gets a HTD then he can talk about his family.

    We now know a shoulder injury kept him from getting to the majors and ending his ball career. While he may have told her we did not get to hear that.

    I just think he wants it to be about the 2 of them and the rest can come later.

    Chris L went the other route.

    It was Ali. I can't help but laugh when I remember Bloomers nic for Ali and Tenley. I know OT, but it still makes me chuckle.
