I liked Chantal right from the start. She hit the nail on the head when she said that she went from looking at things from what she could get out of it, to what she could do for Brad and put him first in her priorities. We've been married for 40 years, and that's how you make it last. Emily seems too needy, while Chantal is spunky, quick, fun. It's those qualities that make life interesting. It appears to me that Brad wants a blond bookend to match the one his brother has. Maybe we're all being duped, edited, and deceived and Chantal is F1. If huge surprise at the end is what the producers are aiming for, then there's ample things out there that could have been planted and created to through off the entire current though that Emily is F1. I guess we'll all find out next week for sure. I just don't see Brad (38) and Emily (25) having much in common over the long haul other than an artificially created bubble of 8 weeks to make an engagement decision. If it's real, and we're not being faked out, and it lasts, that's wonderful. Emily sitting at home with Ricki ,and maybe another kid or two, while Brad and the Bros. run their bars will make it difficult for the southern belle.
When they showed us the slap at the M&G something in the back of my mind said she couldn't be F1. I brushed it off for a while, but after the Costa Rica episode, my mind was completely open to Em F1.
I personally hope that each of the contestants finds a man that will adore them and that they adore in return.
do we have an SC for Andy's f2 toast - I remember the line up was Tessa, Danielle, Bevin - are you saying the toast was Bevin, Andy, Tessa?
I don't think it does any good to look at placement in Andy's season...
Also, in my opinion, the toasts don't stay as consistent as the rose placement orders have.
My point in those pictures was to show you what happened at the point of the Fantasy Date in both seasons.
Now Ali says it was Roberto all the way at that time....
Therefore, I looked at what we have now. Up to this point, when I have been doing the comparisons Chantal has been standing in Roberto's spot. But during the Fantasy Date, Emily is standing in Roberto's spot.
To further confirm that the toasts are the same. They are not always the same, but this time they are as well in both seasons.....
my only point was that we've seen that the toast positionings are merely the lead coming and standing in between the 2 ladies left standing - not that there was an ulterior motive for them to be on any particular side. If Andy's F2 toast was Tessa/Andy/Bevin it was because he came and stood between them after Danielle left - because they were Tessa, DAnielle, Bevin. Basically the lead taking the position of the departed person - most likely why F3's are typically in the middle :shrug
