    I agree with those that think that in a choice between inheriting a rich new daddy and ex-football player (for a TX boy!) to boot, and some other guy's daughter, Brad is leaning towards the former.
    Shawntel's dad sort of gave a blessing, as well. Brad mentions it in his PI's and one part where he's talking about what Chantal's dad said in a VO then goes into a PI of him wearing the shirt he was wearing on Shawntel's date and the words of what he finishes saying are about what her dad said and not Chantal's like it's made to appear.

    On Brad reciprocating Em's affection: sure, it could have been him being polite. He was sure to kiss all of his girls. It could also be that he wanted to kiss her, as he said on the couch, but his propriety overrode his instincts.

    On his F1: I tend to think that Brad isn't too shallow (I hope to avoid the discussion of reality stars being self-absorbed). Did he probably do this gig for the money? Yep. It is certain, though, that he didn't choose someone out of obligation. He chose her out of love. I guess I look at Laurel. What did she have to offer Brad? It seems like she came from modest means and, for all intents and purposes, he took care of her. In the edit, we hear Chantal and Ashley comment on his care-taking abilities. We hear Emily saying that Brad makes her not feel scared.

    At this point, financially, I don't think that either Chantal or Emily need Brad. If it is Chantal, I hope it's only based on his love for her not the chance of inheriting that horrific statue and gobs of money.

    Right, but it was purposely made to look like the comments were about Chantal and her dad, and not about Shawntel and her dad. Perhaps reason being that TPTB wanted the audience to know that Brad had gotten the only blessing that mattered, from the father of the woman he was going to propose to.

    Awww, I liked that statue! Of course, only if it came with that house. Kinda hard to get that thing into a downtown loft.

    At this point - I think it's important to compare Em and Jason's edits. And possibly Deanna's and Brad's. Deanna and Ty got along just great and was doing leap frog by the end of the day, but at the proverbial 'end of the day' she chose someone who could give her all of his attention. What would Brad want at this point? That's what we have to consider.

    Dang, you're good! I would definitely agree with this. I think that now that Brad has met Emily's daughter, he's basically back to that exact decision. All the stress of the "meet the daughter" is over and now he has to figure out what he really wants.

    He's definitely ready to settle and have a family. I'm thinking he's not looking to wait a few years first to start a family either. After all he is 38.

    1)He obviously is drawn to Chantal. And Chantal has flat out told him she's also ready and that it's just about finding the "right person." Her father even said that Chantal was ready to settle down and has been for a while.

    2)He does have a connection with Emily too. Choosing Emily would give him an immediate family. I do think he's open to that. "I would welcome and cherish the opportunity to be a father figure to little Ricki." is a pretty strong statement.

    In the end, I think it boils down to who he has a stronger connection with.....just like all the past bachelor seasons.

    Alexxx, what would he do if he had to choose between the statue or Boca? Oh no!

    The statue made me chuckle. Who the heck has a ginormous statue in their yard?

    So she's not the next bachelorette. ouch.
