Facts about a praying mantis:

From the University of Kentucky website:
Praying Mantids | University of Kentucky Entomology
During mating the smaller male often jumps on the back of the larger female. Miscalculating the jump may mean the male becomes a meal. If the jump was successful, the pair mate and during copulation
the female may turn and devour the male's head
. The body of the male is capable of completing the mating, when complete the female will finish eating the male
In the last episode, we saw many shots of species indigenous to the rainforest. Any other species could have been paired with that conversation. With that knowledge, the pairing of the girls talking about Chantal's return and the praying mantis was intentional.
Is it that Michelle is the man-eater? Or Chantal? Is there another interpretation we haven't thought of?

I read somewhere that the male has a chance to escape death in the wild because the mating ritual is disturbed, so Brad has a chance to be engagement-free by the end of this.

Too funny! In a way this ties in to the narrative of where this show seems to be going as far as travel... I don't know about Anguilla but Costa Rica being known for monkeys and bugs, and all the wild kingdom scenery in Africa capped off by great white sharks...

Maybe the whole theme this time around for Brad is 'it's a jungle out there' in the mate-finding world and the question is whether the show will eat him alive before it's all over!
And the little bonus we get as viewers is the beautiful scenery while he's doing his own personal survivor love series!

I think it makes sense. The outtake was hilarious! That was the fastest I've ever seen Emily move up from her seat.

Where can we go to see the outtakes? They don't seem to be on ABC.

They are at the very end of the full show.

Someone help me out here. So we have Fleiss telling us hints about the rest of the season by the out takes that he shows as the credits roll? We are talking about Mike Fleiss, right? The same Mike Fleiss that thought it would be fun and appropriate to show us Jillian's F1 having problems in the bedroom? The same Mike Fleiss that wanted to end Brad's first season with him eating a sub sandwich while watching The Bachelor? Does anyone really think that Mike Fleiss is that deep? Is there any indication that Mike Fleiss is some genius that has these amazing thoughts that he could come up with something like what is being suggested? Sorry but I'm not sure that I buy into that. Fleiss has made it completely clear that his top priorities are money, ratings and what he thinks sells. Fleiss thinks that drama is what sells, and apparently stupid human tricks as well if the Meet and Greet of past seasons is any indication. I think that Fleiss is being given way to much credit.

I don't know if it's MF but i can see the editing team getting bored with the whole storyline editing of the season and deciding" let's see if we can tell the real story in the outtakes". Personally if I were on the editing team that would really get me excited and be fun. I'd even do that in my "off" hours!
