    I wonder if Ryan's blatant talk of being the bachelor is the reason they included all of the obnoxiousness he spewed in his edit.

    Maybe he told not only Emily how to do her job, but everyone else on the set as well? Someone didn't like him, that's for sure.

    Actually this show, or ABC mentioned something to him in their *cough* selection process. He was interviewed about it all and what they promised. .

    I'm sooooooo surprised!

    Seriously, can you just imagine him as the Bachelor? We would probably be cheering for the biggest player there for the wrong reasons to win.

    HUGE LOL to that!
    I notice frequent edits during Emily's sentences as well. It happens so often that we almost consider it a regular speech pattern by now,... but it's NOT. She'll start a sentence with a subject and verb, then suddenly her intonation will go very high as they splice in another phrase which wasn't originally related to the first, yet now we're all falsely led to believe it was ONE coherent thought.

    Splice-and-dice.
    This is a fabrication show, not a reality show.

    I wonder why none of them put in their contract that sentence-fracturing is not allowed?

    Because if they start making demands, they wont be on the show.The girl from our area, she said no to certain things, and she was told well you wont be around long, and she wasn't.

    The Bachelorette: Emily Maynard Blogs About the 'Mess in Prague'

    By Emily Maynard

    I'm going to start by addressing what I'm sure everyone who watches The Bachelorette is talking about this week: Arie.

    During this experience I was at times suspicious of some of the guys' motives, but I knew I couldn't live my life being paranoid so I just had to trust them. I remember being at Dollywood with Arie and saying how I felt so close to him without having the "awkward ex-girlfriend talk" yet. I could tell the word "ex-girlfriend" made him nervous and I think from that moment on I had a feeling I was missing something.

    Before we started filming I had been told that there may be one contestant on the show this season who had dated Cassie, and I was asked if I would mind. Once I knew it was almost a decade ago, and knowing that Cassie is engaged to another one of my favorite producers, Pete, I was fine with it. I put it way out of my head as I was gearing up to meet the men, so when Cassie took it upon herself halfway through the season to tell me who the guy was, I was definitely surprised.

    We had all been together so many times and it was never mentioned that they had ever met before and that's where my feelings of mistrust came in. If you knew Cassie the way I do, you would know what a great person she is, and that I'd be lucky to have a chance with one of her exes! Although I wish I would have known the specifics earlier, I understand the show didn't want to color my opinion of him. But I was concerned that Arie hadn't told me. I kept feeling like I should just come out and ask him about their relationship, but I didn't because I'm looking for someone that would just be straightforward with me. It was such a relief to finally have it all out there, and as you can see, we picked up right where we had left off.

    Hearing 'I Love You'

    During dinner, I was so caught off guard when he told me he loves me because it was still so early – not to mention the stressful day we had just had – but it was absolutely everything I had hoped for since my very first date with him. Arie and I can have disagreements, but we always bounce back and are even stronger than we were to begin with. Whether it was our bump in the road in London, or this mess in Prague, we always communicate really well. To me that's the most important part of a relationship.

    Up until this point, John and I had only been on a two-on-one date, which ranks pretty high on the "most awkward moments of my life" list. He had always had a guard up with me, but I knew there was a softer side to him, especially after the cocktail party in Croatia. Even though we had fun together during the daytime part of the date, I still didn't feel like I knew him any better, so I was really happy when he opened up to me at dinner. I can only imagine the heartbreak he went through with his ex-girlfriend. Based on that conversation I know he will make a wonderful, loyal husband one day. Unfortunately, I think our relationship needed more time and that's the one luxury we just don't have. Maybe the lock that wouldn't lock really was a sign of what was to come!

    As I was walking back to the hotel, I heard someone calling my name to turn around and that's when I saw Sean. What a great surprise! I felt so bad for putting him on the group date and was so happy to have the chance to let him know it was only because I felt so confident in what we had. My face really did hurt from smiling so much!

    Most Awkward Moment

    Now let's talk about the painfully awkward group date: Poor Doug got about a thousand hints to make a move, but he didn't pick up on it until I was breaking up with him. Could there have been a worse time to try and kiss me? I literally had to watch on TV with my hands over my face because I was mortified for the both of us. Was "thank you for that" really the best I could come up with in that moment? Seriously?!

    Ever since I gave him the first-impression rose I felt like I spent more time begging Doug to open up to me, rather than actually getting to know him. And after Arie told me he loved me, it made me realize how different so many of my relationships were. As a mother, I didn't feel right involving his son knowing how serious we should be at this point and we obviously weren't there. After giving Sean the rose I definitely saw a side of Chris that I thought only existed on Toddlers and Tiaras. I get that his feelings were hurt, but I wish he would have been a little more mature about it. I'm just so happy that this was the last group date I'll ever have to go on for the rest of my life!

    When I found out I'd be going on a date to a marionette shop I knew I wanted to bring Jef because he can make me laugh. This date had the potential to be crazy uncomfortable! I laughed so hard as Jef reenacted some highlights from our relationship and also put them in positions no puppets should ever be in. While we were laying on the floor of the library, we had one of the most honest conversations I'd had during this experience. We talked about kids, faith and everything in between, and it really felt like we were the only two people on the planet! Even though Jef's last words to me weren't exactly what every girl dreams of hearing, it was the perfect ending.

    I went into the rose ceremony knowing I didn't need to have a cocktail party. When Chris asked me if he could speak to me in the middle of handing out roses, I could see on his face something was wrong. I loved that Chris was mature enough to admit his mistakes, take charge and do everything possible to make it better. I know we all have moments that we're not proud of, but the only thing that really matters is how you make up for it and Chris went above and beyond.

    I've had the best time traveling abroad with all of the guys, but I'm so excited to finally get to visit hometowns next week!

    Re: Emily's Blog

    I had a feeling Arie dropped the love bomb a little too early. Don't get me wrong Emily was happy to know that he loved her, but at the same time I think it kind of scared her a little. Like she didn't necessarily feel the same way, but she does have very strong feelings for him. I guess if he is the F1 then it wasn't too early, but we shall see!

    Re: Emily's Blog

    I would like to know how and from whom Emily learned before the show that a contestant had dated Cassie previously. How convenient it was that she was "told" during this episode...and yet we did not see the real true conversation between all three. A load of bull!!!

    And for a woman who keeps saying she wants people to be straightforward with her, she most certainly isn't!!! Just ask like an adult instead of hinting and beating around the bush if you want to know something. Most men just do not get subtle hints. They want us to tell them what we want. They don't like us getting p*ssy because they can't read our minds. And frankly, after all this I don't understand why she thinks that she and Arie communicate well. I see a horny, passive agressive, unrealistic girl rather than a mature, mother and woman. Not a good match by a long shot. Hope for his sake he doesn't "win" because this would be his "reality".
