    Hands down Jillian...she knew who she wanted and she went after it. Even if Ed was a "player" he and jill had a whole lot of chemistry. Just sayin. Reid was a keeper, and Kiptyn, he was just pretty...Gotta go with the bad boy, and she did. he was a hunk though.

    Bachelor Fav-Byron and Mary, when she walked out the elevator it was all over, do you all remember the burning salsa from their eyes. I rest my case.

    Re: General Bachelor chat - spoiler forum

    I’m more of a lurker around these parts, but figured I’d give this a one-time shot. Sorry if this post is the wrong forum/thread!

    Edit- since I'm new I can't post URL's. If someone would like to post the URL's for me, send me a PM- I'd appreciate it!

    The hearsay about Emily-Ricky-Cori has bothered me, so I’ll throw in my $0.42.

    Emily was born Feb 1986, and presumably graduated high school in or around May 2004. There are several sources online (whether or not they’re accurate, I couldn’t tell you) that say things to the effect of, “Emily moved to Charlotte after she graduated,” or, “Emily moved to Charlotte six months before Ricky died.” Either of those statements would be consistent with her age, presumed graduation date, and Ricky’s death date.

    There’s a lot of speculation as to when Emily and Ricky met: I’ve heard 1999, 2001, 2003, etc. Don’t know what’s true. Public records for Florida show that Emily’s parents bought their house in early-mid 2003, and Ricky’s parents built their vacation home in 2003. Logic would presume that would’ve been when they met. Emily would’ve been 17 then (and Ricky 22-23).

    Enter Cori. She and Ricky (if they were even a couple- ha!) were supposed to marry in September 2003, per the “save the date” card seen in InTouch. (Speculation: Did Ricky’s meeting Emily cause their train to derail? Maybe, but we’ll never know.)

    Backtracking. With the assumption that Cori and Ricky were indeed a couple at one point, I ask the question: how long were they actually together? Here’s a fun little ditty from nascar.com: (URL #1 removed since I'm a n00b) (Don’t know if the interview took place on the EXACT date the article was published, but I would think it was done not too long beforehand). So here we can establish that Ricky had NO girlfriend in or around June 2002.

    Timeline so far...
    June 2002- Ricky has no girlfriend
    Early-Mid 2003 (presumably)- Ricky engaged to Cori
    Early-Mid 2003 (presumably)- Ricky meets Emily
    Mid 2003 (presumably)- Ricky calls off engagement with Cori
    April-May 2004- Emily moves to Charlotte (some sources say this is concurrent with her and Ricky becoming engaged)

    Certainly the timing of Ricky’s engagement to Cori (after not having a girlfriend just one year prior) would be consistent with a mid-2004 engagement to Emily (after meeting her -presumably- around mid 2003).

    Ricky’s obituary (published in Charlotte Observer on Oct 27, 2004): (URL #2 removed since I'm a n00b) lists Emily as his “girlfriend”. In the guest book, there are a handful of comments that refer to her as his “girlfriend” as well as his “fiancee”.
    - page 58 (Oct 29, 2004): “girlfriend”
    - page 183 (Oct 26, 2004): “girlfriend” (reference mentioned “a few months ago”)
    - page 283 (Oct 25, 2004): “fiancee”
    - Other nonspecific (i.e., no “girlfriend” or “fiancee” label) references to Emily: page 95 (Oct 27, 2004) and page 14 (Nov 11, 2004)- this one appears to be from a long-time friend of Emily (lived in WV)

    Here’s a website that lists obituaries (it appears they were copied and pasted from somewhere else) for many of the people on the plane. Ricky’s says, “He was recently engaged to be married.” There is no date as far as when this was published.
    (URL #3 removed since I'm a n00b)

    ...HOWEVER, this message forum also has the EXACT same list of obituaries copied onto their forum (see post #5). It was posted on Oct 25, 2004.
    (URL #4 removed since I'm a n00b)

    We know that Emily found out and broke the news that she was pregnant “five days later” and “the day after the memorial service”. That would be Oct 29, 2004. If Ricky’s family wanted to alter history (i.e., if Emily and Ricky were never engaged), then I don’t understand why there are sources printed EARLIER than this date that say they were engaged. Much less the fact that there is a picture of Ricky with Emily, wearing what appears to be an engagement ring.

    Another article that mentions Ricky with “his girlfriend”: (URL #5 removed since I'm a n00b) (Oct 26, 2004)

    The original article is no longer available, but Ricky’s mom was interviewed by the Charlotte Observer and the following was published on Nov 8, 2004. She mentions “fiancee”.
    (URL #6 removed since I'm a n00b) (scroll about 3/4 the way down the page... or search for “Hendrick mom has faith, no regrets”). Ricky, Emily, and his mom had arrived back in Charlotte from their trip to Hawaii on Oct 23, 2004, the day before his plane crashed.

    Were they engaged? I’d like to think so.
    Did Cori exist? Don’t know, don’t care. If she did, it would appear that Emily became the love of his life once he met her.

    Other thoughts: There’s been a lot of ragging on Emily as far as her job situation (whether or not she has a job), and how she supports her daughter. Many say she lives off the Hendrick family. I’ve also read many references (albeit not half as many) that say Emily’s family is wealthy. This is correct. Their home in Florida was a multi-million dollar house in a prime real estate location. It wasn’t NEXT DOOR to the Hendricks’ multi-million dollar vacation home, but it was nearby.

    I have no idea if she has a job or not. Do I care? Not particularly. It’s possible that Rick Hendrick told her, “We will support you and Ricki, and we’d like for her to be brought up with the best environment possible,” with that inferring they don’t WANT her to work, that they would rather her spend time that she would be working at home with her daughter. Again, like so much of Emily’s situation, this is speculation on my part.

    Another thing that I think we forget is that Emily gave the Hendricks the BEST gift possible, short of bringing their son back, at the worst time in their lives. For anyone who has lost someone, what would you pay to have a gift of their spirit living on? It’s priceless, although wealthy people tend to show gratitude through money. For Ricki to have the same upbringing that would be provided had Ricky been around, I would imagine the Hendricks are MORE than happy to provide for her and Emily. Should this matter to us? No.

    Again, sorry if this was the wrong thread. It seemed like the best option!

    not that it matters ... but is that a "good friend of molly's" or a follower?

    That same tweet was sent to Lisa Rinna, Khloe Kardashian, Kendra Wilkinson, Denise Richards, Ali Fedotowsky, Trista Sutter, Holly Peete, Ellen Degeneres ...

    hmm let me think for a minute on this one...
    Haha! Yup. So Ali and Roberto's season for me was the best because I saw the love story from beginning to the end. And although I doubted it and bought that she was single halfway through, I still just knew that it was Roberto.

    Trista and Ryan's proposal night could be my favorite FRC though. I watch it a lot because it's so real and genuine! Loved it!

    I didn't grow up down here so I don't have any experience with them but I just googled finishing school Atlanta and there are a ton around here, so I guess there are. To be fair, though, I've also heard of them up in NY (though my mom attended it in the 60's - lol). But Sweet 16 birthday parties and all that are still HUGE down here.

    Re: General Bachelor chat - spoiler forum

    Since I have been wrong in the F1 every season I cannot go by seeing the romance as picking my fav season. But other factors are the Bach / 'ette, the leads and the general vibe of the season is key to me enjoying myself while watching.

    Here are the seasons I really liked

    1 Jillian
    2 Ali
    3 Brads (both)
    4. Matts
    5. Jason
    6. Trista
    7. Meredith
    8. Travis
    9. DeAnna
    (the B'ette seasons are more interesting because of the hot guys !)

    Seasons I watched but did not like too much
    1. Bobs
    2. Aaron
    3 Jake
    4 Andy (skiped a few episodes)


    Seasons I did not watch at all
    1. Jen
    2 Andrew
    3 Charlie
    4 Byron
    5. Jesse
    6. Alex
    7 Lorenzo
    Pretty sure I have missed some along the way but my memory is not what it should be !


    Favourite characters overall were Jason, Brad and Jillian
    "I Accept You" ~~~ Kiptyn to Tenley
    ---------Best Rose Acceptance line EVER on this series

    Hahahah...this made me laugh. We don't as far as I know...they at least aren't mainstream. But I'd say almost everyone I know that spent their middle school years in the south went through Cotillion, which has the same effect.

    I agree with you!! The trophy goes to T&R's FRC and their follow up engagement/wedding video.

    As for my most favorite sleuthing season, it's gotta go to PLo (then Andy's). We had so much do! No RealitySteve....we got to analyze fingernail beds, candles, window measurements, sunsets, tattoos and FRC positions! It was SO much fun figuring those out all season long

    Shortened purely for length but thank you so much for taking time to post your $0.42, ADHDR and

    Sadly, though, I think people are going to believe what they want to believe, no matter the proof sitting in front of them. I guess it's just human nature. I don't believe this Cori person and question her bringing something up 8 years after it happened, just to try to tarnish the name of another woman.

    We all have pasts. We've all been less than perfect at one time or another. (Except me, who's always perfect-lol-NOT!) I think it's sad when some feel the need to dredge someone else's past up in the media. But, again, I guess it's human nature.
