Girls will make passes
At boys who lose their glasses
I'll find them for you.
Big: You know, Manhattan has a lot of beautiful women.
Carrie: What an amazing observation!
Big: But the thing is, after awhile, you just wanna be with the one who makes you laugh.

They did show Andy Baldwin telling Bevin IFLY. Their goal was to intentionally misdirect and confuse viewers about who was going to be the F1. Things like this happen every single episode of every single season. We also know they use VO's to accomplish the very same thing. As Chris said, they are doing a TV show. Yet despite all this, love can still blossom!
I know others might disagree but I think Chantal's getting an idea that he might be backing off - we hear her asking him and saying he's acting weird - wouldn't that make you think twice about where his head might be at??
I think we're going to see Chantal have an idea what's coming and maybe even stop Brad before he tells her by saying she knows. I know she'll be heartbroken and I will feel bad (I always do) but I hope we'll see her ride out of there with her head held high. Expletives and slaps or anything like that won't do her any favors so I hope she didn't go that route.
Then I think we might possibly see a situation similar to Ed's, where Emily's parents are brought in to meet Brad before the FRC. (Hence one of the extra limos.) Brad sits down with them (sans Emily) and asks her father for her hand. Emily comes, completely unknowing, and he goes through typical FRC pledges of being true, wanting to date, etc., etc.
She says yes, they kiss, and out come her parents. Then his family arrives and they all hop on some elephants and ride off into the sunset.
