    He's a boor regarding women, no wonder he's single, but I found out from him that Chantal is happy, and seeing another guy.
    I thank RS for a spoiler I'm happy to believe because it reinforces my own bias towards this delightful young woman whom I've grown to like immensely during this season.
    As for everything else, I take it all with a pinch of salt, and adopt a wait and see attitude, while acknowledging that there's no smoke without fire, and most stories hold a nugget of truth hidden amongst the verbiage.
    If RS wasn't there, I'd sure miss his detailed info for each season's dates and expulsions, even if he does get the ending wrong. His info adds to the breadth of the Bachelor experience.
    Just my humble opinion.

    imo, Bremily is toast...the announcement of 'broken engagement' will be out there while everyone is busy with the new bachelorette.

    The last 3 months should have been fun, relaxed, safehouse dates and really getting to know each other. The stress should come after they are out as a couple in the real world with the everyday problems that come with it.

    To me, to have problems this early on is not a good indication and too much work to last. Love shouldn't be this much work so soon, maybe after years of marriage, but not in the first 3 months "the honeymoon" period in most relationships that last.

    I can only speak for myself, but I would be far more stressed during those 3 months than after the show ended. Think about it:

    1. You only get to see your SO every other week for a few days, in a safehouse.
    2. There are tabloids trashing you and analyzing your every word and action.
    3. In Emily's case, she has to try to protect her daughter from everything going on.
    4. You cannot tell your family or friends about anything that is happening, so any stress you feel you have to keep to yourself. You can't vent to anyone but your SO.

    Once the show is over and the focus is off them they can be far less stressed, see each other whenever they like and whereever they like. The tabloids will move on to whomever is relevant at that time and you can just be happy.

    I'm glad we had RS to give us the heads up on all the behind the scenes crap this ATFR. I for one will watch with a very different eye than I otherwise might have.

    I agree with a lot of this post.

    I actually enjoy RS's site quite a bit, especially lately. I do agree that some of his comments about women rub me the wrong way, but actually watching his video blogs helped me to see his sense of humor much better. I know some people have had bad experiences with emailing him, but I never have. I have emailed him several times and have always gotten funny and nice responses. And in one of the emails I blasted him for a full paragraph for something he said and he wrote back saying what he really had meant by what he said, and that he was sorry it came across differently.

    I agree. 100%. I can't wait until tonight.

    I have been thinking the same thing all day long. I would think that these would be a really trying time for the couple... for all of the reasons above but let's not forget the F1 having to watch Brad kiss all over other women and not to mention the Laurel situation thrown in.

    I wish them the best... I admit I get sucked in but I know it rarely works out long term.
