    I might believe they didn't know Ashley's song if it had been a guest spot by Lady Gaga singing PokerFace but I think Seal is a bit obscure (although kiss from a rose is very bachelor friendly)

    I wish I was motivated to go back and watch an old episode or two, because their time together has seemed punctuated by long silences and trivial conversation.

    I guess I was focused on Chantal and didn't pay attention to what was there when he was with Emily. In my mind, they didn't show an Emily/Brad romance beyond Brad being in awe of her beauty and Emily finding it hard to string sentences into a paragraph when with Brad.

    He always looked happy and laughing with Chantal and he talked of physical attraction. They seemed so pleased to be in each other's company.

    Both girls seem great, but I wish the editors had left more of Emily's personality into the script.

    3. The usual ensuing drama
    4. We have poor Emily who’s
    • still grieving over the loss of the father of her child, the love of her life
    • still wearing his engagement ring on that finger
    • goes on one ‘pivotal’ date and appears to be over it POOF
    • Is hesitant about even introducing her daughter to Brad
    • and then miraculously she accepts a proposal 2 weeks later.
    5. Two weeks before the finale, we get the REAL F1 complete with SC evidence.

    It all seems so manipulated/scripted/fake.

    I’ve said right from the start this show was about Redemption – and maybe my mind never got past that IDK
    Well...that's HOLLYWOOD for ya!

    How people deal with loss is so individual. I've had several family members die over the years and a few have died on significant birthdays of other friends and family.....I don't have that "anniversary grief" that other people do when the the sadness really hits them on the anniversary of the death. My grief hits me at different moments/times of the year, and thankfully, it has diminished over the years.

    What I'm trying to say is while I don't put anything (and I mean ANYTHING) past MF and his league of ...(we need a Wizard of Oz flying monkeys emoticon here ), I can't speak to how Emily resolved her feelings toward race tracks, or that race track in particular. I'm sorry for your friend's loss. The loss of a loved one is never easy.

I enjoy watching reality tv because it is a stress reliever for me, just like watching sports on tv is a stress reliever for my husband. I don't get so emotionally invested that I feel like any contestant is my best friend and I have to trash another contestant out of loyalty to my "best friend". This reminds me of elderly ladies who become so invested in their soap operas that they don't realize that they are not real.
    For me I like both Emily and Chantal... I don't see a long term lasting relationship with either of them and Brad.

    What we argue about on here is how F1 gets there, especially when you have MF and his team editing them to look either like a plastic replica of themselves devoid of any emotion or whiny, crying, emotional mess..

    Death is hard. Some people take it better or differently than others. Our family experienced 4 cancers, 2 died, 4 other deaths which 3 of those were heart issues in 2 years. It was a very bad time for all of us. Each one of us handled it a little different. It has been years and I still miss them. I do think of them and sometimes there are tears. Not for long but then the sadness is replaced with happy memories.

    I really don't see this is as personal since I think it's a well known fact that we are discussing characters created by editors. The real girls are probably quite different.

    Look what they did to Michele and her whacky sense of humor.

    I agree that how people handle their grief is different and that the manipulation of MF this season has been over the top. We don't know how much manipulation he did any other season because there hasn't been a situation as public as Emily's. It is not Emily's fault how MF has portrayed her, just like it is not Chantal's fault he has started portraying her as overly emotional. Both seem to be strong women, but it is not coming across that way. I also believe that MF fed RS misinformation and has edited the show to support that misinformation. I still don't understand why people are acting like Emily stole their best friend's boyfriend and are trashing her. They know what Fleiss does but they are acting like Laurel and Cori.

    Very true. MF only let us see a slice of the real girls if any.
