Ask me to show you poetry in motion, and I will show you a horse.
I just read this in an interview about Em and Jef:
"And when the couple do finally wed, neither is particularly eager to flaunt their nuptials in front of the cameras."
I think it will be hilarious if they do not have a TV wedding. So many people think all she wants is camera time and if they don't do a TV wedding that will sure but a dent in that theory. Of course, it's just another gossip report, so who know's for sure?

Please bear with me as I had an unfortunate incident happen on finale night, but wanted to address some comments.
More often than not, the F2 do stay friends and take things a lot less personally than the fans do. Jef and Arie's bromance will live on! As will Sean and Wolf, as will Ryan and his mirror.Have we had any examples of where the F1 and F2 have remained friends beyond the engagement? That seems implausible to me. It makes for a feel-good AFTR, but I dunno that it ever continues in real life.
Yeah, that never made sense to me. I guess that was supposed to be one of the cliffhangers of the season. Will she or won't she? But once she did let Jef meet Ricki, it was game over at that point. MF thinks he is so clever, but he spoiled like no one's ever spoiled.Just listening to Emily talk about how she wasn't planning to introduce either of the men to her daughter. Seriously? And she's expecting a proposal?? If you need to take more time before the introduction, take it. But don't expect a man to promise that he will love you forever and take care of your daughter as his own if you're not ready for them to meet.
Don't count on it. Once the recycled lead shows up on screen, what little personality they had on a previous season will be decimated once the new season starts. Arie had the best commentary this season. His Doug impressions still make me laugh. Then he'd go through the Fleiss machine and become a robot and probably lose his sense of humour.Let's hope whoever is chosen as The Bachelor will be someone who makes us laugh and is entertaining!
I don't get this. Have you ever had two friends/acquaintances who YOU think would make a great match? Perfect on paper, similar personalities. Then they meet and it crashes and burns? There is no formula for getting two humans together no matter how well you know them.I still feel like Jef was her backup the entire season. Her friend, Michelle Money, is his friend as well and she told her to keep him and give him a chance. I feel that if she hadn't contacted her and let it play out on its own, she wouldn't have kept him past date 3
I like kids and they like me. I wouldn't be magnetically drawn to 99 of them; even 60 would be pushing it. For some supposed rich kid, Ricki seems like a pretty normal kid to me. (She may be a little smarter than some tho, because she doesn't seem to like the cameras all that much)Out of 100 kids you might meet, you can easily be magnetically drawn to 99 of them, enjoying their cuteness and childlike nature
Not really. She kept creepy Chris around. Don't forget about Kalon, Wolf and Ryan. She liked to swear. She wore old lady gowns and gawd awful faux-ny tails. Plus she was scared of dolphins. Oh and don't forget she smashed Shelley all over the front walkway.While I think it's sweet to have a drama free season, I do think they painted Emily as Saint Emily, overall.
Maybe I am an optimist, but I believe kids can and do choose different than their parents. Emily may not want a career outside of the home, but Ricki might. Emily may not want to go to college, but Ricky might. Emily was an un-wed teenaged mother, Ricki might not want that same life. I wouldn't be surprised if Ricky wants to be a dolphin trainer. Teehee.I think what Ricki is learning from Emily's example, is not that she doesn't have to work as hard for money, but that she doesn't have to work at all. If Ricki doesn't "need" a career, does she even "need" a college education?
I must say that I'm surprised by all the comments. Every year the fans say they want to see a love story. This year, I think it was handed to the viewers on a silver platter. As botoxed as Emily's face was, even *I* the cynic could see it. The way she looked at Jef, especially the last 3 episodes was googly-eyes. It's now up to them to continue their relationship in the real world.
The overwhelming majority here and other boards is that Emily is not that interesting. Wonder if the tabloids feel the same way. Maybe they will finally leave her alone.

This thread is to discuss the Finale and ATFR SHOW. Please take parenting discussions to the General Discussion forum and create a thread for it there.
Thank you, Ariel

I saw the afterparty interviews and the main thing I got from them was that the two of them are comfortable together. At the end Emily was asked to reprise her "running man" and she did with Jef joining in. Also, they were asked when it began to feel "real" to them and not like a show. Jef answered that for him, in London it began to feel real as though he was dating and actually getting to know a girl. I think their conversations were some of the more normal ones we've seen aired. Like Jef being pretty insistent that he meet Ricki before the finale. I still wonder how much Arie would've cared if, on the final date, Emily had said, "no, lets just spend the day alone, just the two of us."
Jef said that they spent their private time together playing games, hanging out and playing with Ricki.
It was nice to compare the Emily that was with Brad on the Final Rose to the one with Jef. She seems night and day, happier, more confident and "smitten."
