    Yep! I'm southern and my slang is bad! But it's me and I talk like that most of the time esp if I'm in a comfortable surrounding!

    Anyway there is so much more pointing to Chantal...
    People have different reasons for getting into a relationship and choosing who they choose. Honestly, I don't think Brad was looking for someone who "gets him" as much as he was looking for someone whom he gets. I think Chantal's emotions are uncomfortable and scary to him. He doesn't understand that kind of spontaneity and openness in emotional expression. That's very different from being fun-loving and wild in the party sense. He doesn't appear to be comfortable one-on-one with anything emotionally "out there," so Emily's reservedness and caution are more what "he gets" and is comfortable with. I also think Brad gets the situation of a mother with a child who has no father. He wants to be a father for that little girl to help heal his own hurt. Reminds him of himself, and I'm sure he's still carrying around that hurt from when he was a youngster. We all have baggage from childhood, but some is worse than others and the trick is not to let it affect our adult decisions. Actually, it's not a trick, it's self-awareness and therapy. Hopefully Brad will continue with his.

    I just don't see that anyone got a bad edit? Unless it was Michelle and even then it wasn't bad. It was just her venting the frustration of being is this type of situation. We may have not seen Emily totally let loose but she is shy! And Chantal, crying? What's wrong with that? It is just who she is. She wears her heart on her sleeve. Maybe a little too much but it's her make up... it is who she is. She loves being in love or the idea of it. But don't we all? I'm not trying to be argumentative at all. I really don't get the bad edit stuff, though.

    Word of advise, at least ready yourself to be not too disappointed/heartbroken if Emily is F1.

    I don't like or dislike either of the F2. I'm not 'rooting' for either one. I'm going to make and observation though about Chantel. I agree when many people say that she is manipulative. But why do people think that's such a terrible thing? If you can get someone to do/think what you want them to do/think while getting them to think it was their idea what is so terrible about that? It's one of the things that makes a manager good. If I could get my husband to agree to what I wanted him to and he thought it was his idea - sure did save an argument (he would usually figure out what had happened and just laughed). Observation about Emily in that she seemed 'stiff and fake' - I think it was just that she wanted very badly not to say or do anything that would reflect badly on her so she said little and took her time when she did speak.

    Manipulative to me came off as bratty! She made me laugh. My son is a bratt... I have best friends that are brats. I'm just too honest with them and they know not to try to pull that stuff over my eyes cause it ain't happening! Stiff and fake? Not a stiff or fake bone in her body.

    I have no idea how we can derive from the show that we have watched that she is manipulative. I agree that it wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing, but I don't see it at all. She has an outwardly cute and bubbly personality. I didn't see her manipulate. I saw her flirt (and cry). I think people know her dad is in the car business and are trying to connect the dots that aren't even there

    I adore Chantal, but my logical side has to agree that yes, F1 is indeed Emily. (Although I must admit, my gut is still telling me its Chantal... 'course, my gut feelings have never been anything to write home about lol).

    Still, assuming it is Emily... I am prepared to see her accept his proposal (which I believe is why he says the ending is so good in his opinion)... and at this point, I am just hoping I am wrong.

    I am hoping she does not accept his proposal before he and her daughter have spent ample time together. In my view, if she does, it just confirms what I already think of her -- which isn't much.
