    So is the whole season a farce/fake? A scripted nonsense to please viewers and line ABC, Brad and Fliess' pockets.

    That's my take. Brad is a "businessman" and I think he realized he screwed up the first time and did not take advantage of being the bachelor. He basically pissed off almost everyone and therefore did not make any money after the show.

    Since then he's seen many others profit from their stint on the show so he begged Fleiss for a second chance as he knew it would the quickest and easiest way for him to get his name back out into the public arena. And this time he planned to play the game right to be able to attract investors for his bars or hotels or whatever businesses he has or wants.

    And Fleiss was having a hard time coming up with a decent bachelor prospect so he agreed to Brad's "business" plan and rigged the show to have a happy ending with women with connections.

    IMO I don't think it's any surprise that the so far spoiled F2 are the most high profile women with connections to money.

    So the happy ending is wrapped up with a big bow and cash enclosed!!

    All of the above is just my opinion of course.

    From my understandings from insiders, this is pretty far from the truth. I hesitate to say it is the exact opposite, but there have been several past opportunities for Brad to make appearances and the bottom line is he turned them down. He turned them down. Until now.
    Brad is successful in his own right, a self made man--he and his business partners, before Fleiss and after. Will he benefit in the future? I wouldn't be surprised.

    Part of sleuthing is puzzling out the truth to find the answer. Please clarify. If Chantal is not a "plant", then how would you classify her, and in what way was our poster getting close to the true story? Thank you.

    This is just my take but I don't think the fact that both F2 have money or families with money has anything to do with them being F2. Most people go on this show for the fun, possibility of fame, adventure, etc. To be able to take off 6-8wks of life, one needs to have the time and boredom to be able to do it.

    The girls' financial situation is not the cause of them going on TB, it's the effect. Both have financial situations that have made it possible for them to leave for a random adventure in the middle of the year for no good reason. The same is probably true of Chris L- his dad wasn't going to fire him or rent out his room. It is my understanding that the same was true for Roberto who was just chillaxing, waiting for an agency to open up. Neither of them were rolling in money but had enough time and boredom on their hands to be able to swing it.

    As for them being spoiled, well I really don't know about that. Probably is my best guess.

    I have found when I make assumptions about people I do not know, I look like an ass afterwards so I try to not do it too often, but ....

    My friend Brad is in LOVE , not love, but LOVE . Being in LOVE is not a business decision nor a planned media event.

    What we are seeing on the screen from Jan 3 on is a story spliced together by producers to get them most viewers, the hightest ratings, the most revenue. What you hear in the media and from Chris H is also slated to do the same - get viewers to watch every Monday night - capture your attention. We will get to the same ending as what happened in real life. We just may not take the same path.

    I cannot wait for the ride to begin!

    I am so happy to hear this. I can't wait for the season to begin. I hope Fleiss doesn't mess this up with his storytelling/drama and we get a real love story at last!

    I'm not sure how to take this. Are you implying Brad is not in love, Chantal is not the F1 or just that there won't be a "real love story"? Should we just be looking for a different F1?
