    Re: Reid - Bachelorette 5

    [QUOTE=Luvstruck;3643810;]Bears repeating from the MTA :"If it walks like a snake, and talks like a snake chances are it's not the kind of guy any woman would want to date!"
    I know the lady who said this was saying it about Wes but now it certainly seems to apply to Mr. Ed!!!!!!!![/QUOTE]

    I'm beginning to think the gf business on the show was Ed and not Wes at all. If you go back and look at the RC where that all blew up, take a look at Ed's face and reaction to it all. I think he left before the next rose ceremony.

    This season left me feeling drained and sad ~ I want OUT!

    If I may quote the Godfather: Just when I think I'm out, they keep pulling me back in.
    That quote is perfect!

    I definitely don't want him to do Bachelor. In fact I'll go on record now to say that I will boycott it out of principle.
    And I'll form the line right behind you!

    Really? Do you really think you are strong enough not to watch Reid.

I think that she isn't lying, that she still would have picked Ed above Reid (for reasons unknown, whatever) but that her feelings for Reid are still there, and she realizes that she didn't do quite right by him (ie. give him a chance, led him on, etc.). She also realizes that they had a real connection (as she said on the ATFR), but is too stubborn to "pull a Jason" and look like she is second guessing her decision. She is the product of what has come before her, which is the previous show in which her friend Melissa was dumped on national TV by Jason. She wants to stay as far away from that as possible, and that is always going to be on her mind. So first and foremost, once she decided that Ed was her guy, she was going to stick with it till the end.
    As Chris Harrison so clearly stated early on. (Without mentioning names, of course!)

    We ARE long lost twins! I've watched some of the other seasons on and off (I think I inexplicably watched the entire Matt from London season) but really am not a routine watcher. Two hours of my TV watching life every week usually equals too much time on one TV show! But Reid pulled me in and now I'm hooked! And honestly, I think I'm hooked on Reid, not The Bachelor, so I will be following him wherever he goes next. (Again, let's reiterate, I'm married.) But it's still up in the air if I will follow The Bachelor next season.

He's more open to saying what he thinks, etc. Reid himself talked about his type changing on his interview. I think he's learned a lot. I think he went into the show really and truly believing it would be fun, but at the same time something could happen. And something DID happen. So his experience and his feelings were real, even if he did have to make out in front of a nation-wide TV audience! Through this experience he grew as a person, and realized what he really wants. His list has changed. He may not be as selective as he's been in the past, but in spite of the fact he will be able to have any girl he wants, he will probably still search for that genuine connection. I can't see him being a player. He said he doesn't do the club scene. During the hometown date one of his brothers talked about how he was ready to settle down, especially with his brothers married and starting families of their own. So even if he went on to become TB, still hoping to find real love, I don't think he would settle. He would stay true to his heart. If it's not there, it's not there. And then we would have another Brad situation. How many of us would like to see that happen to him. I wouldn't!
    This is my fear, too--that the media will rip him if this happens. Also the angst he will go thru having to 1) send girls home he cares about or 2) see girls upset when he sends them home. It's just scary. I'd watch the show, but I'd prolly be a little worried or have a knot in the pit of my stomach the whole time.

    I feel sorry for us if Reid is the next Bachelor....I mean we think we are obsessed NOW?! What's gonna happen when he gets 100% of the air time?!

    And god forbid he should pick someone we don't like! Look at how crazy some of us got at just the possiblity of him dating Cosmo host Diana!
    Its going to be a madhouse! They might as well starting making my straitjacket now!

    No, for my own emotional health I need for Reid to not be the Bachelor.
