So why, really, did they want to hide Emily as the F1 with fake spoilers? (BTW, I think it's obvious that everything being handed out two weeks before the final was simply because they knew 80% of the viewing public wanted Emily and they're boosting ratings.) Is it because the "love story" wouldn't hold up to scrutiny? I just don't get it. The whole season makes me sad and then that makes me even sadder since I'm having an emotional response to the freakin' Bachelor! I said yesterday that I wished TPTB showed us multi-dimensional, real women instead of stereotypes. But here I am AGAIN getting all emotionally invested even with these flat pieces of fiction, so I guess the joke's on me!
I hope I'm wrong about the icky feeling I'm getting. And I hope that we see a smile on Em's face on Monday that equals the smiles she has in pictures with Ricky and Ricki. Right now, it still feels like Ricky was the love of her life. And everyone deserves a living, breathing love.
