    What blew me away at the ATFR was the new Emily. It looked to me like she cared less about Brad's feelings than her TV image. This relationship is going down in flames, if it hasn't already, and Brad's the one that's going to get burned. Dude needs a better picker

    Whoever said it's already over but Brad is embarrassed he went through 55 (FIFTY-FIVE) women and can't find a "girlfriend" so he's saving face is right on.

    Carrie: What an amazing observation!
    Big: But the thing is, after awhile, you just wanna be with the one who makes you laugh.

    Editing is a huge part but I think as a woman who just feel in love in on a reality tv show would need to figure out what is her true reality and what isn't......I think Emily is smart enough to know the power of editing.....but i think for her (as she spoke last night) it was what he said in from of the camera to Chantal and you see him saying it that would be questioning her reality. She commented on shark date, safari date and the fantasy date each time she saw her man that was screaming from his first interview that he knew early on...say....I am the most comfortable with you, I have so much fun hanging out with Chantal, I want you to meet my family, this date is perfect, you are special too, they didn't edit that in you see him say those things, I would be questioning what I felt and try to figure out everything myself.....I do hope that they can truly get a fresh start and realize no matter who was on the show that it is over and move forward and see if their lives will fit together.

    She did have a hard time with the show on Mondays. Frustrating bc it's the 21st season of the bachelor. Not the first.
    We see this every season, wonder and ask ourselves, how does it serve the franchaise or Fleiss to hide the love story to such a degree? They hid Ali and Roberto well and even said they had a difficult time in editing to hide it! I get it, the ending has to hold suspense but they over do it.

    Is it really possible once the show in underway to go back and re-edit? I would think once it is in the can it is done because of the trememdous effort it would take to reshape the story line they created.

    Thanks for sharing with us your perspective of the situation. Not sure if you can respond to this question but can you let us know what their plans are for the immediate future? Will they stay in Austin for a few days?

    There is NO WAY Chantal was his intended F2.....Ashley was the girl (next to Emily) that he had the strongest "connection" with....up until the "akward" overnight date.

    Even then....from the beginning....Emily's "connection" with Brad was on a totally different level than the other girls....(that's what frustrates me...that Emily didn't see that while watching....kisses mean zero...."connection" means everything)
    Well, bottom line ~ Chantal's the only one who ended up looking classy
    at the end of all of this!!

    You bring up a very good point.

    Just catching up watching the scenes I FF'd thru this morning... but is it me, or did Brad seem VERY awkward watching the proposal?

    There were quite a few moments when it looked like he would rather be getting a root canal than smiling pretty on TV watching this... sorry, but I just don't see it with these two.

    Thank goodness Chantal was spared!
    We like because... we love although...."
