    I think Emily gave that answer herself on her last date. She said, when discussing her missing Ricki, that "this was good for her to figure out who she was outside of being a mother." It's very possible that she is trying to come from under the shadows of her past and define herself independently. Not working so well considering said past is brought up constantly on this show.

    You can do that without going on a tv show.

    THAT'S why the Ali's and the Chantal's and Bevin's and Molly's and everyone else's of the world are so on edge all the time.

    SABOTEURS are everywhere. There's no one who can be trusted.

    Gods and Mortals should be the name of this show.
    I remember a couple of the gals from Andy's season saying that no matter how confident they thought their connection was with Andy the producers would constantly bring up his connections with the other women and tell them that maybe they don't have such a great connection after all.

    In other words, the girls are constantly being undermined by the production staff into thinking they are not as well liked by the bachelor as they think they are, etc.

    Add to that lack of sleep and alcohol, and no wonder they are basket cases.

    Why do any of these beautiful women go on this show....why not? that's the best answer I can give. If I were young, single, pretty and looked good in a bikini, heck, I'd go on the show!! I'd go in with eyes wide open, not expecting anything more than a holiday, meeting new people, the novelty of being on a television show, travel, activities and places I'd probably never be able to do/visit on my own...and heck, if by any mad chance I actually found myself really liking the guy too, that's just gravy!

    I don't blame any of these girls for doing this. I don't blame Emily at all, as long as she is confident that her daughter is well taken care of and won't miss her too much, or it won't have a negative impact on little Ricki, then sure, why not??

    I think this is the most honest and correct answer here!

    I agree with this. If I were a single girl, and saw Chris L looking for love
    last season ~ I would have auditioned in a heartbeat! I think that's what
    happened with a lot of the girls this season. Chris L has the qualities you
    dream about in a man. JMO
    This is freaking CRAzy ~ I'm 0 for 20!

    The only thing I like about the scam this season is nobody got hurt. Both the Bachelor and his final choice deciding the outcome from the start meant not another Jason-Melissa fraud & abuse and not another Jake-Vienna sham engagement. Sham engagements are fine as long as both know it's a sham and the only people tricked are the public?

    Heya Nibbles! I hear 'ya!

    I've tuned out this season, the whole show was putting me to sleep. But I read lethargic's post, and I agree that everything that he posted could be very plausible.
    BUT, isn't possible that despite everything, that these 2 people, Chantal and Brad, could have fallen for each other, while following the said script??? That falling in love was not planned, it wasn't in the script, but it happened anyway? Some of hollywoods best leading ladies and men have fallen in love with each other while doing a movie together. I'm just saying that it's possible, a good possibility even, that it could have happened here. You can write a script and follow that script all you want, but how do you control someone's emotions, how a person is going to feel and react "on set" once the cameras start rolling? I don't think you can. Fleiss has a lot of power and control but he can't control that. The best he can do, is hide it. That's what he does best on this show. hide the real love story.

    I'm not watching this season, not a fan of Brad, or his too young leading ladies, but if it's all setup, as lethargic described, than that's pretty sad what the show has become imho. Glad I didn't waste my time watching it.
