She was acting so "two ways" about Reid during the AFTR, I would've been confused too, if I were him.
    If perhaps Jillian was trying to be nice and treat him gently, then she just gave him the wrong signals, IMO.
    I think Reid was truthful in all that he did, and he was respectful to Jillian, as hurt as he was. I think he may have been hoping that Jillian would break up with Ed soon, and would turn back to him.
    I hope he doesn't want to be the bachelor, I just hope after he heals he finds a really nice woman, he so deserves.
    I'm curious of RS's take on it, because he seemed sure that Reid was acting out what the show wanted him to do.

    That and I'm desperate for an interview with just Reid!

    Jillian and Ed want to have a blast - and they probably will for awhile. Not my idea of starting a 30 - 40 year relationship but it sounds like they both think it is for now. But much more importantly, we FINALLY got another Reid smile and quick wit with twinkly eyes. YIPPEE!

    Also, I was heartbroken for Reid. I was expecting him to kind of be moving on a bit. Maybe I took what Lisamill was saying too literally that he was doing great. I kind of feel that Reid was letting Jillian know that he still loved her in case she was regretting her decision.

    I don't like Ed, but Jillian did seem very happy.

    P.S. I did think Reid's choice of wardrobe was a little goofy at the FRC, but I love him no matter what

    I would bet my last dollar that was all the producer doing - make it look like you just stepped off the plane!!

    Jillian and Ed, while probably really in love, seem to understand the *wink, wink* nature of the show. *Wink, wink* as in 'Yes, I know it's probably impossible to find true and lasting love on a TV show, but I'm going along with the illusion anyway.'

    Reid, on the other hand, appeared to eventually put his all into it (albeit slowly), and can't understand why love didn't win out. He hadn't yet seen the later episodes when he went back to Hawaii to propose and I think it was a shock to him, when he did see them, to see Jillian saying the same things to the other guys that she said to him. (Not a knock on Jillian, just the nature of the show.) I think he believed she meant what she said about their relationship being "special" and didn't think (or let himself think) she was saying the same sorts of things to the other guys. Jillian was playing the part of someone who could actually be in love with 3 people at one time; Reid actually fell in love.

    I think the same is true with Kip, although it doesn't seem like he bought into it quite like Reid did. (Not sure why I say that, it just seems like he'll get over her easier and faster.) But he's probably confused, too. Jillian begs and cajoles 'love me, want me, worship me,' and Kip, nice guy that he is, finally complies, only to have her tell him she loves someone else (with the implication whirling around that she knew she loved "someone else" for quite some time before the finale.)

    This show sucks but sucks slightly less if you know what you're getting into. If you don't, I imagine it can be a pretty difficult "journey."
    This is a great post!! I remember when Jill brought out the first FS card in Spain - Reid really looked perplexed, and honestly wasn't even sure all the guys got one. I doubt he had ever seen one episode of The Bach, and went into it honestly & genuinely.

    Didn't he say in the lone interview that popped up that someone at work talked him into auditioning? I doubt he realized what a mindf**k it could be. Plus, Jillian gave Reid contradictory directives...don't believe everything I tell you because it's just a game, but try harder to convince me that you are on the up and up because I want a real teammate and partner. No wonder Reid was thinking WTF just happened.

    The number of the Reid/Jesse avatars that have popped up recently is hilarious. Apparently there's a bunch of us who would have picked a very different F2 than Jillian.
    So, you know what it means when your ears turn red...

    You have to register to get on the messages boards, then go to Feedback Center, then Rate My Space forum, then look for the thread by Gin1997 for Reid...Help save him from being the TB!

    If someone knows how to legally post a link, please do so...thanks!
    You mean there's an HGTV thread here? Can you link it?

    Yeah there's a thread started on him
    New Real Estate Show w/ Reid Rosenthal... - Topic Powered by Eve For Enterprise

    Im not sure anymore they will pick Reid for the next bachelor...seems like a lot of people are slamming him from last night. I initially thought last night was a total set up for that and the way the season ended. Though, internet people don't speak for the bigger audience. I guess we shall see. If not The Bachelor, I'd love to see him on HGTV...one of my favorite stations.

    At the hometown date his mom told Jillian Reid could be a little reserved about relationships because he had had his heart broken once (I'm not sure how recently). Apparently it affected him enough in his later relationships that his mom knew about him being more reserved because of it. I think that's partly why he had a hard time saying the L word to Jill. Now it has happened again.
    Well I don't blame Reid! I have been hurt a lot in the past so I know how he feels. Don't we all? Getting rejected or dumped sucks!

    So do you think that Reid and Jillian actually did it that night? I just can't imagine doing it with more than one person, or doing it and not knowing for sure if that was the guy I was going to pick.
    That would REALLY hurt more! You sleep with someone and then decide you don't want that person.

    I didn't watch it. Ed thought that!?!?! DOH!
