Hope not. She sure is pretty, but maybe not the brightest bulb. I guess women get blinded by looks just like men do. She's way too good for him.
The only reason the dude is so after her is cause she's playing hard to get. Once she says ok lets get married he leave her high and dry in Austin.
I believe Chantal was hurt over the "It wasn't even close" statements floating around the Internet. The emphasis on this is very odd. Brad repeatedly stated how comfortable he was around her, whereas with Emily, he was nervous. It was only physical attraction on Brad's part toward Emily, and that showed. Although to me, Chantal is clearly more attractive. Beautiful features, great skin, and more importantly, she's a lovely person.
I really would have been crushed to see Chantal in Emily's place last night. I'm still elated that she wasn't chosen and escaped that mess.
They both need to spend some time apart and work on themselves and come back at this as whole people.
Do I wish them ill? Heck NO... I'm a grounded person that has some life experience and I KNOW what I witnessed on TV will not end well.
I think Chantal is a little too busy doing the media rounds on behalf of the happy couple, so they can enjoy their privacy and work on their relationship, to get down with the Celebrity Fit Club.
I wonder how much of a celebrity would you need to be for that show...I could use a little work myself - summer's getting closer every day!
I could also venture a guess that until he got solid confirmation on how Emily felt about HIM, he saw Ashley as a contender for dating. But I saw a marked difference in the physical attention he paid to anyone else after Emily told him how she felt. From the beginning, I think Brad was honest and forthright as much as he was allowed to be.
I got caught up in the comfortable, fun and engaging connection he had with Chantal. I loved her, he enjoyed it to the fullest, absolutely, and set up dates that capitalized on the strengths of their relationship. But the nature of this show is that someone always always gets led on. Brad isn't at fault for that, IMO. The many times Chantal commented on getting a ring, he never responded in kind. When she said she loved him, he didn't reply. He did, however, break rules repeatedly for Emily. (Hindsight is sooooooo 20/20.)
The funny thing is that is Brad (or any bachelor, really) truly can't win in this position. He fell early and when he knew she felt the same, it was very obvious after that point. Isn't that what we all say we want to see more than anything? He's trying to be honest about all of that in the end. He gets reamed for it. If he lied, he'd get called out for that. I would love to see Brad and Emily happy, and sitting on stage with the other Bachelor success stories.
We like because... we love although...."
