In his case it was a something much more honorable than the others - his charity, which has benefited by his appearance on the show.
    I agree that Kiptyn's agenda for going on the show was for his charity, like he said, he'd take one for the team

    Reid's reason was obviously for an ad campaign for the family real estate company which is suffering like most in this economy.

    Not quite sure what Ed's was... paid vacation? ... 3 gf's wasn't enough? ... on a dare?

The show last night clearly showed a man who followed his heart back to Hawaii. His relationship with the newly engaged couple must be good now since they all watched the finale together two nights ago. And if the producers were as thoroughly evil as most people on this board believe them to be, contestants would refuse to return for a second round--but both Kiptyn and Reid (and Jake) seem amenable to the idea. Also, a trusted member of this community reported early on that the production people were tearing their hair out due to the lack of a love story. I think we saw at least three love stories this season. True, the editing was almost always obvious and disjointed, but love was there. That is a clear indication to me that "reliable sources" that can't be named are far from reliable.

    There is a viciousness on this board unique to a community that's composed almost entirely of women. Contestants routinely get chewed up and spit out by holier-than-thou judges. Mean Girls, anyone?
    I agree, I wish it was not necessary to feel the need to defend contestants against the attacks, but every now and then I feel the need to do so and state my opinions as well, after reading so many insults I feel the need to speak my peace then step away for a bit, someone needs to be a voice for these poor people who cant defend themselves

Do they just assume that since Jillian chose Ed that it can't be true, or are they not allowed to ask?

    I'm genuinely curious. I have never taken any stand regarding the rumors, so please don't jump on me and assume that I am on one "side" or the other.
    I think you're right that there's an ABC policy against their own people asking "embarrssing" questions.

    But Anderson Cooper is NOT an ABC employee--he's CNN--so I guess he didn't get the memo and decided to ask a real reporter's-type question instead of the gawdawful fluff the ABC people seem to be limited to.

    Simple, that she is in love with him. IS he in love with her?

    It's not shocking that Ed wasn't asked about the girlfriend rumors neither was Jesse from Deanna's season. They don't want to ruin the fantasy for all of those hopeless romantics and female viewing audience who actually believe these people fall in love on this cheesy contrived reality show.
    It's easy to be miserable. Being happy is tougher - and cooler.

    Very true

    Especially since she had Reid in that "Go away closer" death grip.

Reid did NOT choose to leave her--it was she who sent him away! Reid is far more stable and steady than Ed who just started a new job at age 29. Reid is one of the top 100 realtors in the nation and would have been a fantastic "catch" for Jilly. She will be bored to tears with Ed in a couple of months!
    Maybe even sooner then that.
