    Oh yes, I'm giving you the credit for that line! It's awesome and fits so well. She totally needs one of those quiet, stable, normal men who totally welcome the chaos and think their girlfriend/wife is just the cutest thing ever for discovering drama.

    Martini, welcome!! You posted just fine and I can relate way more to Chantal than to anyone else either, other than Ashley.

    I brought her up - yes, she told Matthew she loved him and also that she would say yes if he asked her to marry him. I know it was just a slip of the tongue, bad judgement, et al. but I still felt awful for Matthew. Anyone know what happened to him?

    Married and happy. Pics were posted somewhere here eons ago. It all worked out like it's supposed to.

    I am not sure why you all think he needs luck to live with Ricki. 5 year old girls are wonderful, sweet, and loving! I have had 3 of em. They don't become emotional and difficult until they are teens and by them Brad will have adjusted to the role of step-dad.
    Okay I love FORT's casino, but I really am not very good. If anyone wants to donate their FORT $$ I would gladly accept http://www.fansofrealitytv.com/forum....php?do=donate

    Controlling is a word that has been coming back to me time and again. Something about how he shuts down when things aren't going the way he perceives them, or when he becomes cold and distant when he has to deal with unpleasant things, tells me that he has a hard time when things are out of his control and he doesn't know how to bend very well. His ultra clean condo, his extremely fit body, his eating habits (didn't I read/hear somewhere that he only has turkey and ??? something in his fridge?) ~ I could be wrong but they have suggested a control freak to me.

    Now here is where my theory meets the Chantal/Emily scenario as they have been presented/edited for us on the show. On the one hand, you have Emily who has controlled herself very well throughout the entire "journey." We didn't see her fawning all over him. We rarely saw her interacting with the other girls in the house. She kept her tears, when she shed them (rarely) very quiet and restrained. No loud sobbing for our Southern Girl! She's also very slender, and very put together, something that I think appeals greatly to Brad. She is the opposite of Chantal in so many ways. Chantal throws herself into everything, good and bad. She wore her heart on her sleeve and went with whatever emotion she was feeling. If she was sad, she cried. If she was mad, she walked away from him. If she was happy, she laughed. If she was mischevious, she teased him. She's impulsive and emotional and OTT sometimes. She obviously is a GORGEOUS girl but she's definitely a normal girl with curves, so yes she probably has the ability to put on a few pounds. So many times I don't think he knew what would happen next with Chantal. She kept him on his toes, and while those who loved Chantal thought that brought out a younger and happier side of him, and it might have, I don't think it would translate well in his real life. I don't think Brad could trust her not to bring chaos into his controlled life.

    It's funny, because on the show Chantal is portrayed as the "sure thing" because she told him straight out how she feels and he knew she was in it all the way. Emily is being portrayed as the "uncertainty" ~ will she be able to love him back? I see it as the opposite with regards to Brad's life and how he likes it to run. Emily is the "sure thing" in that their lifestyles and personalities, that controlled almost reserved manner, will mesh better than Chantal, who would be a bigger risk for Brad because he wouldn't know if she would be too disruptive to his lifestyle. He couldn't, or wouldn't take that chance, and obviously felt that Emily would fit his life better.

    It's no secret, I like Chantal's impulsiveness and zest for life, so I think Brad missed out on something special. But the heart/head wants what the heart/head wants, and that wasn't her I guess. It's ok, another man will thank his lucky stars that Brad let her go.

    She told him she would accept a ring from him and then dumped him the next day. Matthew got married recently.

    I don't think anyone is implying anything negative about Ricki at all. We're just commenting on the fact that Brad craves calm and order.

    And I believe she apologized for that afterwards, didn't she? It was an unfortunate choice of words for her to use. I loved Meredith, and I do believe she was trying to be fair to Matthew while her heart was obviously with Ian from the get-go. I think (but don't quote me!) that she meant the sort of global idea of "anyone would be honored to receive a ring from such a standup good guy" but it came out wrong. IDK, that's how I took it.
