I really thought Wade would choose Erin if she picked him up until the last episode. Wade now knows (or appeared to from the last episode) that Erin is not romantically into him and he looks like he is starting to feel the same way. At this point, he would be dumb to throw away $1M for a girl with whom there is no chemistry beyond a friendship. I think Wade would have chosen Erin if he felt that strongly about her. The $1M (probably $200K after taxes in a lump sum payment) would not have stopped him from choosing Erin if she was the right girl.Originally Posted by benicecomics
On the previews for the next show, Wade says something to the effect of 'Erin has nobody to blame but herself if I choose the million dollars' shows Erin's lack of affection/connection necessary to turn down the money. I don't think Wade is a gold digger in this case. It is the smart choice.
Wade was on the radio this morning in Dallas on a local radio station. He has been just about every week since the show started. He did indicate that in the conversations that he and Erin had on the show, she did not come across as using Wade as a 'safety net'. There connection was more sincere than the show is leading us to believe. However, he wasn't there when Erin was having her private interviews and saying these 'safety net' type thoughts about Wade. The power of editing can make anything happen.
