After Chantal's fantastic HTD, I could definately see the "Thanksgiving Dinner" occuring. They all seemed so comfortable with each other.
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.

I just had a chance to see the Chantal O date. They are such a good fit, and can see them working long term. Brad would work within this extended family as well as with her. And I am seeing touching on his part. He ran towards her at the begining, draws her in, holds her hand in the car on their way to dinner and touches her shoulder spontaneously before dinner. I believe that Chantal's parents can see it too hence the approval. At the end of the date he holds on to her hand until she pulls away. He is talking to her about the important details of their lives, where they will live ect... They have already talked about her family and how he would fit in. He was sincere when he asked her dad for his blessing. " I hope you know my intentions are true here".
He was not checked out at all during the date.
I really like Emily after the last date, but I think Chantal is the best fit. Of course now it is who Brad thinks he is the best fit for.
It seems like it is taking forever to get to the final rose.
