How close was it to the finale though? Did he drop the bombshell the night before the finale??
No it was before the ending...sluethers had figured out VERY early that PDG(purple dress girl) was Molly and leaving the FRC area and that Melissa was who he would pick...RS kept telling us that we were missing the main part..of course it was the after show that became the missing part.
I believe a lot of schools start spring break next week, it would not surprise me if Brad and Emily decided to spend the week with Ricki rather than spending it doing press to just to satisfy fans of the Bachelor.
They have done ATFR and People Magazine and probably feel that that should be substantial enough to satiate us. Little did they know it wouldn't be nearly enough and nothing short of a full out media blitz will do for everyone to believe that they are together and in love. Funny thing is, I don't think they really care!
On the east coast, however, spring break generally tries to coincide with one of the weekends that flank Easter Sunday. From what I could find, many of the NC schools are doing Spring break Apr 18-22 with Easter being Apr 24.
