    Actually to me that shows they are still trying to see if he will give in and do the show. Otherwise I think they would just announce Jake is the bachelor

    That's the only thing that gives me pause. As I said before, I will wait and see how this all plays out.

    IA with you. Joke (thanks Avalon!! ) is always in their back pocket and they know it. They're trying to either get Reid or Kiptyn to do it.

    Don't do it, boys!

    Joke will give the most hilariously ridiculous season yet and will do whatever TPTB tell him to do. It'll be a riot.

    Carrie: What an amazing observation!
    Big: But the thing is, after awhile, you just wanna be with the one who makes you laugh.

    Another month argh.

    They could be trying to lock down a new guy though as well, maybe another celebrity bachelor, say is Terrel Owens single? Oh no he's got football and his own reality show this fall.

    I think if you don't go with a popular returning Bachelor the next best thing is a celebrity bachelor. George Clooney anyone, then it would be easy to cast, just get 30 waitresses. Oh right he's way too expensive.

    chrisbharrison: new Bachelor has not been picked yet. We'll announce in a month or so probably.
    Gee thanks, Chris. By that time all the FORT TB threads will be closed because posters will have ripped each other to shreds!!

    Thank goodness real tennis has started again!

    I was going to stick around and become part of the community. And if I was going to say I wouldn't want people questioning me. So proving myself seemed worth it. Now after the creepy messages I have gotten on here and on FB, I'm not so sure.
    I am sorry that you have gotten any creepy posts. While I must admit I am still skeptical, I don't think you should be getting any post or PM that make you feel uncomfortable.

    3. The resumes are thin (Find this hard to believe)
    4. Reid is reluctant but would do it if offered, at least that's what they believe. (but it was offered)

    Your opinion stuff actually seems more realistic than the facts
    Just wanted to say as to 2 and 3, here is what I see (with no inside information):

    2. I think they are in a catch 22. I think they want to get away from the crap that has happened the last few seasons because they see that while ratings may be up, the franchise is suffering and long term survivability is questionable - as many are now seeing it is less about a love story and more about drama and people are tiring of it. Starting with new blood, at least in their mind, may leave the taint behind. But they know about Reid's popularity and are at risk of fans not tuning in to watch someone new. With Reid (and even Kip and Jake to a lesser extent), they know they have the audience.

    3. I would actually be surprised if resumes weren't thin - in two ways. First I think someone would have to be a complete moron to want to be on this show after seeing what has happened to the majority of cast members the last two seasons. And second, those that are still applying probably fall into the moron category - which could also be seen as being "thin" - very "thin" as to quality candidates.

    Finally, I am not sure you and SDL are in a different place as to #4 either. You have said it was already offered and he said no as to the current terms, but would do it if the terms changed. Producers don't want us to know there are "terms" to the deals. So what they publicly release is that he is reluctant (has turned down the current offer) but would do it if offered (they know under what terms he would do it).

    I agree totally!

    To the extent that there seems to be some discrepancy between our respected sources here at FORT, I lean, for what it's worth, with those who see their divergence as more a matter of semantics than substance. Not that anyone has asked my opinion lol. Just hope these little "differences" can be ironed out so that the board does not suffer the loss of either valued poster....



    We all have developed feelings for our Honey Bear - though most from a great distance - and with rare exception posters here want nothing but his happiness/success....

    2. Don't you think that the Bachelor/Bachelorette is at its most popular at this point (Deanna, Jason, Jillian - all repeats)? I think ABC will do what they can to get Reid to continue the popularity and very high ratings.
    3. I think Reid will edit fine! I liked Jillian throughout, but I didn't like her choice. I think Reid would make a good decision.
    4. I will admit, maybe it would be better for him not to do TB. But I'm feeling selfish about it and I SO want him to be it.
    I think it's still very popular, but I think the interest has changed. I don't know how many people actually look for the love connection as much as the drama anymore. This season is a prime example. If we take Jillian at her word (which I personally don't) she knew Ed was F1 at the 3rd RC. Instead of helping highlight the love connection, we had the girlfriend drama on the show, we had the foot fetish, we had the anger / suppressed love () of David and Juan, we had the Wes issue, we had Ed leave and come back, Jake leave and come back and Reid leave and come back. It's become as entertaining as Dynasty and Dallas were in the '80s!

    I will absolutely watch every week if Reid's TB because I couldn't NOT watch -- he's way too adorable! IMO, he would've been a great Bachelor back in the early history of the show.
