I agree that I think it matters more that the sunset is included in the proposal scene (or, at least the diffused/softer light you would get from the sunset than for it to be 'the way it's always been'. A cameraman can move around - the sun is pretty much where nature has determined it to be. With many other FRC sites there has been oceans/water near them and they almost always want that in the background and arrange the set accordingly.
"It's just a show" - let's try not to trash people - tptb do that very well all on their own they don't need our help!
If Brad was standing ahead of the rose pedestal to meet any of the girls and looking straight-on (to where the girls are coming down the ramp) then the plant would be to his left and the cameraman to his right...THIS is the only way to get the plant in the background...and because this plant is so clearly in the background and neither of them have their backs to it it shows very clearly to me that no one is currently standing in the F1/F2 position, they are standing in the middle and he can very well place them wherever he pleases. That doesn't go to show that Chantal won't be F1, she could be, but this picture is not conclusive, not by a long shot. BUT i agree with the comment above saying that both girls will be in the same position.
SpecialK pointed something out that really stood out to me
They said that Brad's tie is crooked
Now is this picture we see Emily fixing something on Brad
That leads me to believe that the first picture was after letting go his F2 and getting ready to propose to his F1. Just a thought!
Give me that DANG ON rose!
Remember the Oval Mirror mystery screencap with Brad's PI in a hotel room? I was really curious about that sc, since he wore several outfits in that PI.
Mr. Write found the suite to be at the Sheraton Gateway (in L.A.)
It's always fun to find the last piece of the screencap puzzles
Thanks for finding the hotel and the photos Mr. Write
RYV ^^^ when did they stay there again? If at all?
