I would love love love that..
This would be an awesome reailty show. Have them dress the girls with full hair and make up and then send them on dates.. I would set the dvr for that..
If this is Emily that Brad is hugging, it is possible that it was from their first 1 on 1 date. Perhaps when she talked to him about her relationship with Ricky and her daughter. It is obvious on that date that he was very moved and that there was a lot of editing. Just a thought. She had a grayish, short-sleeved outfit on and he had the blue shirt in question on, so their clothes match this SC and her hair was fairly straight that day. The other thing I notice in the "hugging SC" is that neither person appears to have a suntan yet. Which would point back to the earlier dates. It is possible that the hugging photo is flipped, putting her bracelets on her let hand. Food for thought.
I think this was already talked over and disproved, but I don't remember why :blush so I'm going to go with it.
Along that line of thought, maybe that would be the actual first time Emily tells him about her story :crying and the second time at dinner was for show...Brad was strangely unmoved when she was talking, and Emily was pretty stoic, too...even compared to telling the girls earlier
It was the little bump on Brad's left cheek!
Not sure if there crazy idea has been brought up before - but in that cap of Brad crying - could that be Chantal? A little photoshop and a little airbrush and viola!! I can see him reacting like this when he lets her go.
Chris Harrison's thoughts :
There was something special about that moment for both of them that I haven’t seen on any other date we’ve ever had on this show. .
