    Why? BFC admitted he could see why some would have taken his words as overly harsh to the F2, and I appreciated his saying it. People don't have to always agree with the friends/family who visit FORT or join the fun, as long as we're respectful to the person themselves. It is always a testy time here, the last week before the FRC, but I try to remind myself that I don't have to feel badly because I don't see the love story. I don't even blame Brad or Emily, I blame Fleiss and the editors, frankly, because they sold me a story that I bought wholeheartedly, before they pulled the rug out from under me. I don't mind those who don't see a connection with Chantal and Brad, and I appreciate the fact that I don't have to necessarily buy the love story between Brad and Emily. I am confident BFC understands that some people saw a different story.

    I was so up waiting impatiently to find out if my prediction was right. One of the only times I actually picked a contestant to be F1 instead of not caring.

    Hope we get something about the ATFR. But I all really want to know about is Chantal.

    You're right! Seems like there are lots of little clues...will be fun to find out what the "real" story is next week

    That's for sure, and I can't wait!

    Yes! What a fun and disappointing night all rolled into one! One of my favorite seasons and leads. Oh Jilly Bean.

Was the ultimatum fair at that point to Brad? Probably not. Did he have the power to just decide to send her home? Probably not. But could he have fought to send her home if he truly believed it was unfair to take her to the end if she cared that deeply about it? You betcha i believe he could have. Hey, to be fair to Brad maybe he did fight for it and they said no. I wouldn't put that past Fleiss. But I ask all of those people who don't see this as a big deal, and who say "there has to be a f2" - how would the general audience feel if Emily were the F2 and he brought her to the end? We had many mention, when the spoilers still pointed to Chantal as the F1, that it was ridiculous to assume that Brad would take a single Mom who had such a tragic story to the end if he wasn't going to choose her. What if he kept her from her child? It could easily have happened that way. I'm not trying to be argumentative, just suggesting that there is a legitimate reason that many think it was stinky to keep Chantal to the F2 as she was easily the most emotionally invested girl (that we were shown) this season.

    Thank you!

    I'll have to jump in here even though I haven't been reading much on the boards lately. I also share your same feelings about Chantal, and Reid is not only my ultimate F1, he is my ultimate everything...can we be triplets?
