She jettisoned Kasey who lived to "guard and protect her heart"Originally Posted by Alanna;3993185;This is true. I don't know how to put this better but Chris kinda ignores her damsel in distress schtick more than Roberto. Two little things I noticed in this area but were glaringly obvious to me:
-Chris didn't comfort her or say anything when she said she was scared to jump off the catamaran. Roberto would have probably told her that he's here and wouldn't let anything happen to her or whatever he says that she likes so much.
-When they were playing with the oysters and he was teasing her, she whined "don't!!" and again, he pretty much ignored that. Not that he was making her truly upset or scared but he had a non-reaction to the whine.
It's probably a difference in how the guys are as people. Chris seems to think of Ali as an equal, that they're a team. But Roberto is all manly and there to protect and keep her safe. And Ali responds REALLY well to Roberto trying to keep her safe and secure, she eats that stuff up like it's going out of style.
