I thought it was the best finale. I really do. I could see the connection they had from the beginning & could tell it was more than just physical. They seem very happy together & hope they can make it work.
I respect Ali for letting Chris go before the LCDs. I don't know that there's ever the perfect words to tell someone that you're in love with someone else. It's a harsh reality, but Chris seems to understand. I'm sure he was hurt, he said he was, but he also said that you can't make yourself fall in love with someone. It's either there or it isn't. He thinks she picked a great guy & so do I.
Chris is much stronger than some are giving him credit. He's not the fragile little butterfly. He's a smart, strong man with a wonderful family. By all accounts, Chris is doing just fine. It appears he was doing fine as early as the airing of the M & G. He was watching with friends & glowing. Laughing with his friends & giving thumbs up or down for the guys coming out of the limo.
Chris has been through much worse than Ali letting him go & he got through that. I don't think Chris will be the new Bach, but he has a great life. I'm sure he wishes the same for Roberto & Ali.
