Speaking of dresses, the ones for this Rose Ceremony were terrible. Ashley's was the least ugly, Chantal's was least flattering, and Shawntel's was just awful.
And to the previous poster who brought it up, I agree that "little Ricki" reminds me of I Love Lucy too!!
I was watching Chantal's HTD again last night and had forgotten about the part in the preview where Brad said he was looking at houses on the plane ride to Seattle. That was in Chantal's house and either before or after the part where they were talking about needing a bigger house. I thought it was interesting that they cut that part out during the actual date.
I think all of the f1's in the past have had to overlook a lot of the stuff that happens and is said to the f2 and 3 person. It's not just this season. I remember Meredith at her ATFR show and trying to explain to Matthew why she said she'd be honored to get a ring from him and there was a garbled comment from her about it being the show. My feeling was that she was told to make it seem more like she picked Matt during that date and she blurted it out. It had nothing to do with what she felt for Ian and I'm sure he knew it. I doubt it bothers Chantal as much as it would appear from the show because she's got to feel secure that he loves her by the end and certainly afterwards.
I am sure his blog is proof read by a producer before it is submitted. Interivew questions and answers are also reviewed and cleared. They have a storyline to support. I don't think we are going to ever hear any slips or clues come from any bachelor or bachelorette in these places.
I was put off by someting Brad said about Chantel. He saw her as emotional and didn't want drama in his relationship. There will always be emotional times in any relationship and if you view tears as drama, what is your plan to work things out? Women cry when upset and this does not mean drama, it means we are upset, expressing how we feel and willing to talk it through. She is in love with him and, of course, upset when she sees him being close with the other women. Who wouldn't be in this situation? I just don't know if he has had enough experience in relationships or with books on the subject to know how to negotiate a marriage.

I think in Brad's blog he has talked about Chantal as well as Emily..I think it is interesting thing to ponder..Is why in the CR one he chose NOT to talk about Chantal..MAYBE it would have been too telling? Who knows...I don't put a lot weight in those BLOGS..
