    Chantal is o.k.

    In my book...she's no "classier" than Shawntel, Britt, or any of the others.

    If she had been Brad's F1.....trust me....we'd be "hearing" more than we wanted to about "her past".

    Thank goodness Chantal was spared!

    Not at all!! We obviously see things very differently cause I saw a guy that was watching a moment that he cherished and was very close to his heart.

    Sorry, but I wildly disagree.

    Lol, it's crazy how 2 people can watch the same thing, but see it completely differently, isn't it?

    Completely respect your opinion, but what I saw was a man looking away and forcing smiles here and there.... lord he just looked so uncomfortable!

    I believe that if you truly love someone then you try to protect them, especially on national TV.

    She could simply have said

    "We are going though what most new couples do, trying to build a relationship that will be strong and last forever. There have been a few challenges but overall it has been the best thing that ever happened to me!"

    She didn't even have to mention the temper, the screaming, the "poking the bear", etc.

    If a woman ever treated me that way I would run for the hills!

    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
    To say I had to pick my jaw up off of the floor would be an understatement!
    By the looks of the studio audience ~ they were in shock as well.

    Emily and her *sweet Emily* persona she used to win the beau,
    was no where to be seen last night. Imagine that.
    She served his manhood to him on a platter. Isn't she lovely?
    This is freaking CRAzy ~ I'm 0 for 20!

    Amen! So I can only assume that now, all the people who trashed Laurel (for trashing Brad) must also trash Emily, right?

    OK, that may be going overboard, but I hope the point is taken -- intended only for those who say one thing when Laurel does it, and quite another when dear, sweet Emily says it.

It gets me nowhere, but I have this OCD tendency to not get up from my damn computer. For what? I don't even know
    Please feel free to feel "stupid".. I love love love the insight.. and have wondered many times why I spend so many hours on this site..

    But to be honest.. I just love it.. The roller coaster ride on my emotions on here are just insane,,, I can only imagine you who is so close to the situation 100 times worse.

    Thanks again BFC for all the posts good and bad I love to read them

    I think it is more likely that Brad was told to bring Chantal along to F2 to create the most fan base and sympathy for her role as the next bachelorette. The same thing was done last year for Chris- but lo and behold both Chris and Chantal turned down the offers.

    Now that I've watched the entire ATFR .. I think that Brad is going to make it work come whatever. He'll push and push .. and then back off .. and then push some more for Emily to set a date for the wedding. He does not want to look like a jerk this time... (ooops .. too late!) So I believe he will MAKE it work no matter how he ends up feeling.. he just has to keep telling himself that Emily is the woman he's waited for all his life (all his life???) ..

    My only question.. Does anyone else find it odd that he's 15 years older than she is? ..(Although in maturity .. he acts 12 .. so maybe they are closer in "age")
    Wasting away another summer...

    I'd say that's pretty good company to be in.....
