I will check my suppliers and see if they have any in the shape of "gas inducing" corn chips.

I didn't make myself clear. I wasn't talking about who was or wasn't picked. I don't know who was picked.

I mean, once you've told someone that you'll marry him, and said on national tv that you're deeply emotionally involved with him, and love him, how slow could you go after that? You'd be pretty much stuck with having already declared intense emotional involvement, I would think, no matter how much you tried to slow the thing down in other ways.
I realize that's the premise of the show. But I'd like to know under what circumstances adult women with experience -- as opposed to the 23-year-olds that mostly populate The Bachelor, for example -- are willing to put themselves into a situation where the atmosphere pushes them into feelings of committed, weeping love for somebody they've known for three weeks, dated only in very artificial circumstances, and dated at the same time that the person was dating a bunch of other people. ...
If it were me, I don't think I'd go into such a situation actually thinking I wsa going to get even a serious boyfriend. I can't imagine thinking that it would be anything much beyond a lark. And I think that most people who've been divorced even once -- particularly people whose marriages have lasted under ten years -- tend to feel that one problem with their marriages is that they learned so many things about their spouses only *after* the vows were said, and those things led to big disillusionment.
So that's why I'm curious about the really intense feelings some of the women, including Stacy, have been having/expressing over the past few episodes. What kind of belief system lets you let yourself in for such a potential letdown? (I think I might like to borrow some of it, actually, since I pretty much go the exact opposite way -- extreme caution ... )

I dated my husband for 9 months, no babies, and on the 2nd date, I knew that I would marry him. It is both our 1st marriages and we have been married almost 20 years! so it does work for some people, a whirlwind romance.

I can see where you are coming from here. Having been divorced myself, would have a hard time putting myself in this kind of scenario on a Reality TV show, because of the fact that I have learned to be extra cautious when selecting a mate. I dont put my heart out on the line, unless I am for sure it is a real thing. It took me forever to learn how to trust again. I would think these girls are setting themselves up for a heartbreak, especially when they are eliminated. I am sure though they know that before going into the thing, and its a risk they take.
