DH has been convinced that Emily had Brad from the get-go. Each week, despite that editing of those crafty producers, he's said it's still Emily. When they tried to make it look like Brad was a fumbling, bumbling mess, DH explained it away by saying that Brad is so shy and nervous b/c he cares. During that awkward scene on the beach in Anguilla, he gave me an eye roll and said that at that point they'd had, what, 3-4 dates - of course he's still fumbling around and nervous - b/c that's how DH was when he met me. (yes, he scored major points with that one - lol) So DH has said Emily FTW from night 1.
Other friends are all hoping it's Emily but think it's Chantal - I haven't asked if it's because of what they may have seen in the supermarket/read online or if it's what they've seen on the show, though.
