    Did Brad, actually, spend his own money or he chose the most expense ring in Bachelor history?

    ETA: There was a pix of "the ring Ricky gave Em" on the last page, but it has disappeared. Sorry, tried to add it in here. So sorry, it literally just disappeared a second ago lol!
    I was just thinking the same thing. People were commenting on it to confirm that Emily had the engagement ring in the FB pic...

    I don't think that I would be comfortable wearing it either...but for totally different reasons. I would be afraid that I would lose it!

    Yes, the ecomony is bad. But people are still buying houses, cars, boats, going on vacation, etc. If someone has the money to spend on a diamond ring, so be it.

    Of course he's not broke. To believe that story is silly, imo. If you're anywhere near broke, you can't buy that -- even on credit! And if you *are* broke, and you found a way to buy that -- then you're just an idiot.

    Great way to start a new family -- blowing $$ you don't have. Brilliant.

    No, me thinks he is not broke in the slightest.

    JMO but I don't think Brad paid for the ring. The articles I have read all said that he chose the most expensive ring in bach history nothing about him paying for it

    I didn't think he was either, but didn't he say something to that affect? I can't remember the details, but I do recall that this was suggested. Just not sure if it was by Brad or not. As I said, it's his $$. I doubt he actually paid retail for the ring, but man it seems like a very expensive ring to give to someone you met on a tv dating show and have only known for such a short time. He must be in love!

    Question...if he paid for the ring, is Emily obligated to give it back if things don't work out? I know etiquette-wise it is frowned upon not to give it back if the engagement is broken, but I also know that when the show paid for the ring it was enforced that it goes back to them. Correct?

    I hope that is the case, cuz I just cannot reconcile him both having $$ troubles and then buying that ring.
