Chantal's melting down to such a degree that Michelle & Ashley leave on their own so Brad can comfort her yet again. She's bawling her eyes out with snot running down her face asking to be sent home if he can't pick her out of three women. Seems a bit too much of a test to me.

    I mean they are really testing her this is the most producer driven show I ever seen. I guess they just really don't like Chantal and intent on making her life miserable. I guess they haven't seen her cry enough. I wonder what will they do for an encore, make Brad choose Emily to see her cry one last time.

    Who's to say Emily isn't feisty too.
    I remember CH saying something in a interview about the saying is the first person having the first helicopter ride is usually the winner. He said let's see if that wholes true. After seeing Emily on her date in the helicopter, I started laughing. CH is a comic, he knew that Emily would be in one too.
    It was merely an observation..I don't know Emily but she strikes me as sweet tempered, reserved, stays out of the drama and in the background at the risk of even seeming indifferent and nonchalant at times..I don't see Emily as feisty LOL. I could be wrong though

    I think there are hints in there, but it's really hard to tell. They haven't let much of Emily's personality shine through on this.

    I agree completely. Honestly, their interactions as shown really reinforces my feeling that Emily was always known to Brad as the tptb's chosen one for the next bachelorette; whether or not she has decided to do it yet, Brad's behavior towards her is as though she is somehow off limits - sometime it feels like it is edited to show he's got a bit of crush that he knows can't be returned, because she's not available. The rest of the time, it feels like they are two very recent acquaintances trying to pass the time as pleasantly as possible but not really sure what to say, so it comes across as very awkward and stilted.

    Leaving out the fact that they tried to paint it as Michelle and Chantal being "pitted" against each other all season and that alone would be high on the list for the reason TPTB wouldn't let Brad give her the rose..

    He'd already essentially given one rose to Emily on her date.

    He'd come close to assuring Shawntel a rose (or rather a HTD) on her date.

    If he gave the group date rose to Chantal that'd have made the "drama" or "suspense" at the end come down to Michelle and who? Ashley H. The very one who basically said, well, I feel like a little sister sometimes and if I go home I'd be ok eventually. NOT the words of one who'd be heartbroken, dramatic, and good tv standing there next to Michelle.

    It HAD to look like someone who could possibly go.

    Had Shawntel's date been a bit awkward or there had been some conceivable doubt, we might have seen a different rose on the group date. But when the choices to go up against Michelle were Ashley and Chantal, I really don't think there was any hesitation or regard for Chantal, even if that's who Brad would have wanted to give it to. He knew she wasn't going anywhere. And, frankly, I think he thought she was sure of that.

    TPTB had their icing on the cake that Michelle vs. Chantal at the end for that "final rose of the night" being "arch rivals" and getting Chantal emotional...especially since Michelle flipped the script on how they thought the night would play out and went more stoic and quiet when she was sent home. (And if she'd have had a dramatic exit, I bet it was some the extended angst on the group date that would have been axed).
    Ita. TPTB are running this show, no doubt about it. They were not going to miss the chance to cap off the Chantal/Michelle EPIC SAGA :/ with them both up for elimination. Period. That's been one of the main storylines, and in the previous scenes we see the conflict of Channy/Michelle on the group date. It made sense in terms of continuity and storyline. Period. I'm okay in knowing that Brad knew 100% what he wanted to do. He told Chris, "I know where my heart is at," and that "I made my decision earlier today." He was clearly referencing Channy and what happened. Personally, I feel this moment gave him the clarity he needed to go through with the rest of the show. However they set it up or made it look for the sake of the show and drama, doesn't matter. When Brad "breaks the rules" TPTB have to okay it.

He's nervous like you are when you're first dating someone. That's gone by the time you become more familiar with each other.
    I agree. This reminds me of Chris with Ali. He was always so nervous around her, and by the time he reached his comfort level, she was too far along with someone else. I don't know how it happens for Brad and Emily, but I could see a situation where he continues to advance with Chantal while he and Emily never get to that level of comfort. The bottom line is that for any relationship to work, the two people need to be on the same page at some point, in terms of their feelings and how they view their future. I see much more of that with Brad and Chantal. They're only getting stronger IMO, although last episode's doubt quotient went up for Chantal. Right on cue.

    I think the edit is right on track for this time in the show. Last week Chantal was elevated, this week Emily is elevated. They have now shown two viable F1 candidates. Next week will start the downward arc for one of them while the other will continue an upward climb. Each woman has her own story as it relates to Brad, so there will be a few bumps and hurdles for each of them. The start of the downward arc for the F2 may only be noticed in hindsight as both will continue to interact with Brad until the FRC; but it will begin this next week.

    Great point here. It does seem like the episodes are taking turns in who they're pushing to the forefront. Makes for a good debate on FORT .
    EP 1- Emily
    EP 2- Emily
    EP 3- Chantal
    EP 4- Chantal
    EP 5- Emily
    EP 6- Chantal
    EP 7- Emily
    EP 8- ?

    If I were keeping a score card of who is "winning" it would look like this, which explains why most fans are on the Emily ship. Which also bodes well for Channy being F1.

    Re: Edit Analysis 2.0

    I usually go with body language over words to determine who wins, and based on that, Chantal wins. For the very old fogies like me: the edit of Brad and Emily is setting up a little like Aaron and Helene's (snag the one that's hardest to get), but I'm going to stick with Chantal because I honestly believe most of what we're seeing with Emily and Brad is engineered, while most of what we're seeing with Chantal is the real thing, be it love or lust.

    Based on my theory of who makes the best Bach/ette (they must be fun!!), Shawntel would be awesome. I know there's a lot of Emily love out there, but she's just not that fun. Beautiful, yes. That's part of Brad's problem is that he's more serious than fun, and he slips back into that mode, especially when there's a problem, which there almost always is on a group date, which makes it even less fun. He just can't let things roll off his back. And he doesn't trust his decisions, which is why Chantal is good for him. She's all that, but not too much (i.e. Deanna or Michelle).

    I have to say that I really dont think Emily is Beautiful,very good looking but not beautiful and not photogenic. Why do you think she didnt gt the photo shoot,the most photogenic got it.
    I am not on the emily love for Brad or for hte next bach-ette.
    wow I feel better, had to get that off my chest,sometimes it gets hard to just read stuff and not give your thoughts.. thoughts done.

    Ooooh, I like this list, Luv! Yup, this season, they flip-flopped the edits all the way to the home stretch

    FWIW, I think Chantal's HTD will win epi 8. Chantal will regain ground she's lost but Emily will lose her footing. Epi 9 will either see Brad leaving Emily behind and forging ahead with Chantal, or Brad will try "one more time" to work out him and Emily. It's interesting that we only have two screencaps of Emily's time in SA. Same with Chantal's last date. Sigh.

    Emily's date will go perfectly, but it won't be right for Brad. It's going to be really sweet and sappy and sugary, but Brad will look wrong and feel uncomfortable there at first. In the end they'll make it seem like they figured it all out and can move forward, but it'll be fake or engineered as Casey just said. It'll be a set-up for Bette. Like Chris' date was perfect with Ali because it was so heartfelt and tender, but she didn't look quite right on his porch, OTOH laughing and dancing in Roberto's living room was right on schedule for her.
    Big: You know, Manhattan has a lot of beautiful women.
    Carrie: What an amazing observation!
    Big: But the thing is, after awhile, you just wanna be with the one who makes you laugh.

    Oh, I didn't think Chris' date looked "right" at all. He was trying rather hard with her, but she was in Roberto-land.

    Based on what Arielflies posted, I expect Emily's date to fail in some way, even if it's small. If she's F2, yes, it'll be heartwarming but more between Em and Ricki than them as a "family." We'll lose any fuzzies (for those of us who feel them. I know that you don't.) between them. It'll be the start of her downward plunge, even if some say she never had an upward climb.
