    I don't think it's okay to trick the public, either. I think it's an insult to the people who make their livelihoods possible.

    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 I do look good in a bikini, others have said so, and I am young. But, there is no way in hell I would go on TB! My family has left me with enough money that I can travel as I please, and if its true that some of these girls also have family or their own money, why go on this disaster?! The years of teasing from any aquaintence in the future would keep me from appearing on this show. If I had a need to embarrass my family and myself then yeah I would appear on TB.

Jason is a prime example - if he truly wanted to be with Molly, he could've dumped Melissa and gone after Molly - but that wasn't good enough for MF, he needed and wanted to make a circus out of the whole mess and had Jason do it all on camera.

    Anyone who doesn't believe that 90% of what we see on the screen isn't producer driven/manipulated is naive.

    Is all of it true about Brad - IDK, but I believe the bones of it are true. Brad did the show as a way to redeem his reputation and he would choose a F1 no matter what. Whether or not Chantal was chosen before or after Brad met her - IDK, whether or not any of the other women know - IDK, but I tend to believe not since they do have to rely on true raw emotions to at least make it look real. Is Emily being set up as next 'ette - most likely.
    Oh, but I am familiar with it as a whole and for the second time I have the best perspective as I get to watch it from the inside - out. I'm also the only person posting that is 100 percent about how it ends. I've watched other seasons, too. I understand that it is producer driven. The conspiracy theory that Lithargic reported is too far fetched. Even for this show. Brad fell in love with one person and it wasn't set up. He's not sure what would have happened if he hadn't met this one person. Doesn't even want to think about if he would have walked away again. Thank God that wasn't an issue

    By the way it was never discussed that he "HAD" to pick someone. Believe it or not. Would he have been crazy to not? I think so. But thank goodness it never came to that.

    He did the show to meet someone, have an adventure, and experience all the excitement again. He didn't do it to redeem his reputation. He was old news and was just fine with that. His real life reputation is different than his blogosphere reputation. As time went on people actually applauded his first season decision more and more. He wasn't desperate to be "liked" again by fans of the show.

    Thanks for posting! I always look forward to your posts.

    BTW, is it weird watching your buddy fall in love on TV? I bet you probably rag on him a lot!

    This is how I thought of it as well. Brad was definitely "old news" and there were more positive posts about his decision to walk away last time after the initial shock wore off. I am just curious why TPTB insisted on making this a "redemption" episode rather than a "I still haven't found anyone to love so I'm willing to try again" thing.

    I'm so glad he did find someone, and I happy to hear he is in love. I hope it's with Chantal, because I think they are adorable together.

    Thanks for posting, babyfaceC, I really appreciate your "inside information"

    I also appreciate your posts and your view from the "inside". One question, do you know who the F1 is? I'm not trying to get you to reveal "who" just curious to know if Brad has shared that with you.

    One thing I got from reading Babyface's post -- there was only ONE woman that Brad was truly interested in. If that ONE woman hadn't been there, Brad would have walked away again. He didn't just choose the one he loved most, because he only loved ONE.

    Sooooo cool to have your inside-out perspective! It's great to know that Brad and his fiancee are the real deal. Wish them all the happiness in the world!
