Having concerns about the lead or the couple doesn't mean you are participating in the backlash that happens when the one being rooted for is the F2. Folks need to bear with folks for asking questions and trying to wrap their heads and hearts around what happened.
In our rule reminder posts yesterday, the mods made the point about people needing to feel comfortable to post their theories and takes even if what they say questions the lead or goes against the majority. I think it helps to realize that just because folks have questions, doesn't mean they are being negative or that they are being mean to the lead/couple to ask the questions.

Well, let's just be happy for the in love couple! They certainly seem over the moon and even though it may not be who you would have chosen for him, let's give them our warm thoughts and be happy for them. Emily is a gem, not one word has been said negatively about her so really, we should try to find the wonderful aspects that Brad sees in her too. Let's not focus on how much she looks like the sister-in-law, who pays for what, moving her child, who is more independent, what they are wearing, how much jewelry they have -- both Chantal and Emily have been taken care of from their families and both are grounded women with good heads on their shoulders. We should be blessed that we had a great season with 2 very likeable final 2 women (it could have been Michelle in the final 2, like Vienna). Kudos to Brad for narrowing it down to 2 great ladies. Let's be happy for the in-love couple and focus on the love story at hand, that is so clearly visible!!

Just curious if anyone else noticed this, I rewatched Emily and Chantal's dates from last night....the shot when Brad picks up Chantal for the safari...I don't see the exuberant Chantal...she kinda of walks/skips to Brad and the hug she gave him was nothing like the one from her HTD???
I think the edit dismantled their real conversation during the dinner/evening portion of their date. It came across like she hadn't spent one minute thinking about the two of them beyond the show and we know that can't be true. However, if their lives don't mesh, then they simply don't mesh and they both need to move on. Guess what, that's what relationships are like in real life. Not every ending is warm and fuzzy; and the ending between Brad & Ashley was rather cool last nite. I'm sure she's just fine now!
