What I enjoyed about FLOM was that the people on it were actually interesting. I liked Erin -- she was savvy and articulate; she had a personality. Paige was naive and mopey but that made her seem like the girls I used to know (sadly) in high school who were so in love with the concept of being in love. As for Rob, he was such a dull tool that I really thought Erin made a wise choice going for the money.
As for FLOM2 -- Erin had a team of hotties. Her final guys Wade and Chad were a. good lucking b. intelligent c. able to carry on a conversation. This is almost unheard of in reality TV land. Ahem, particularly in the Bachelor lately.
