    OMG!! I'm going to be on vacation next week & will have to wait until I get back to watch the final episode!! I'm going to die!!! LOL

    I thought the "things you didn't see" clips were hilarious on the MTA. Michael is so funny with the whole "I think it followed me" bit!!! And yes, I was very surprised by a lot of the guys - I thought most of them were just big idiots. I was really surprised by Robbie - I thought he was a nice guy on the show, but he sure didn't show it on the MTA. I totally agree about Wes not being on the show because he's not smart enough to defend himself!!! Or, maybe the producers didn't want him there because of all the crap he's been saying about how they edited it to make him look like the bad guy & it was all taken out of context. In any case, I'm glad I didn't have to listen to him....and I definitely could have gone without hearing that "love don't come easy" again!! I don't think they should have given him that much airtime on the show either - that's just giving him more exposure! They should have let Jillian say her piece about him (as lame as it was), and say that he wasn't going to be there...but come on, giving him a montage(sp?)!?? That's ridiculous...and did they really have to play that stupid song!!!

    Anyway...I would love for Michael to the next Bachelor! Or maybe even a new face would be good! As much of a fan I am of Jake - I agree that it would be a snooze-fest! He's a sweet genuine guy...but not really lively!

      I think the funniest thing is whenever Chris (the host) talks about Wes...because he gets this big cheeky grin that says "yah, I think he's a big loser too". Being the host, one would think he should be unbiased and fair...but he sure mocks Wes alot...I think it's hilarious!!

        Okay ladies...don't hate me too much but I can't stand Jake after the last episode!!! He makes me feel sick. It's all an act with him and personally I think he's a better actor than Wes could ever be.

        He has every women swooning over him and it looks like that was his plan, for America to fall in love with him. He never really cared about Jillian, it's total BS, he totally said he was going to fall in love with her before he even met her or could even truly know her. Notice how irritated Jillian was with him on Monday, she clearly can't stand the guy and I don't blame her.

        When the woman in the audience suggested he be the next bachelor he was giddy like a school girl and gave an answer like a politician and we know how trust worthy they are! Fake Jake, that's what I call him and the producers aren't stupid, clearly by the way they have scripted the whole season, he won't be the next bachelor.

        Wow it felt good to get that off my chest. Anyhow that being said next episode will be interesting i'm sure. I'm interested to see how the whole Reid thing pans out!

TOOOO SWEET.

          I'm not sure what to think of the whole Reid thing. There was talk around the internet last week- I don't believe this is a spoiler but just in case.....

















          That Reid and Jillian exchanged some whispered words and had weird body language when she was putting him in the limo. Thankfully, I still had the episode on the DVR and my sister and I rewatched that exchange about 15 times. I even had DH listen. It sounded like Jillian whispered "call me" when she hugged Reid. He got in the limo and whispered "ya, I'll call you." Jillian then put her hand over her mouth and smirked and it showed Reid smirking back. I can't say for 100% that they really said "call me" but I do know for 100% that their body language was off in that exchange. I did see smirking and I'm not sure what to think.

          Ugh- I hope this show isn't turing into "The Hills" and becoming scripted reality. IF so, I'll still watch. HAHA. I'm THAT pathetic.

          I totally believe this. I wish I would have DVR'd it now..LOL
          But I'm sure we all remember the Drama that the show created with the whole Jason-Melissa-Molly thing. Supposedly Jason wanted Molly, but the show had him pick Melissa and break up with her and Well, we all know the rest.
          That was according to that guy who did the spoilers for that season, what was his name? and is he doing any spoilers for this season?
          Anyway..After that fiasco last season, I truly believe that the producers stepped in when they saw that her & Reid getting closer & when their ED became not so wonderful the second time around, and they said, let Reid go and we'll bring him back for you.

          OR they could have saw potential in Reid to be the next Bachelor and they wanted to bring him back, get his heart broken my Jillian chosing Kiptyn and America loves him, because we all love the underdog :0)

          I would personally LOVE to have Michael as the next bachelor. Although...Bob Guiney(sp?) was really funny on the Bachelorette, but during his season, he sucked :-( (I did love him though..lol)
          I would hate for Michael to lose all his humor and sweetness because the show makes him.

          I don't think it's totally scripted, but after all these seasons..this show knows what gets people talking.
          This was done on purpose (I believe)

          Oh & I wanted to Add, Jillian seemed like a Bitch to all of them at the MTA. I don't know what it was, but she seemed really strange.

          I guess we'll see on Monday night.

              Reality Steve. I don't think he is doing spoilers this season because he isn't really privy to any info. Last year he had an "informant" who was on the show supposedly. I haven't checked out his site this year because I was really pissed all the fun was ruined for me last year by reading it ahead of time. Plus the guy is a huge douche and it's tough to stomach is big ego.

              However, I've read that Reality Steve is doing everything in his power to show ABC as scripted and they are the DEVIL. He's lost his marbles.... He did have a Wes interview in which, from the sounds of it, Wes may have broken his contract from having loose lips. I dunno- I didn't listen to it. I would have vomitted in my mouth too many times.


              Anyway..After that fiasco last season, I truly believe that the producers stepped in when they saw that her & Reid getting closer & when their ED became not so wonderful the second time around, and they said, let Reid go and we'll bring him back for you.

              Interesting theory. Could explain the weird exchange between Jillian and Reid. I saw that with my very own eyes. I guess we shall see, but I'm sure we will never know the real truth.

              I don't think it's totally scripted, but after all these seasons..this show knows what gets people talking.

              I don't think it's totally scripted either. Maybe "guided" is a better word.

              Oh & I wanted to Add, Jillian seemed like a Bitch to all of them at the MTA. I don't know what it was, but she seemed really strange.
              Aloof and distant! I thought she was being kinda cruel to some of the guys that she did have a connection with- like Michael. She didn't really say anything to him- at least it wasn't shown, so maybe we should give her the benefit of the doubt.

              I also think ABC is being VERY careful with this season after last season's unravel. So maybe Jillian had a long list of things not to say, so she just decided not to say anything so she didn't screw up. I would be nervous of accidentally running my mouth if I were her.


              I don't know why I'm so obsessed with this show. It's not natural. I guess I have no drama in my life so maybe that's why? Either way, it's sick!

              Happily married since 2008

                I 100% agree with this! I just get the "ick" factor when I hear him speak. It all seems so fake. There was an early spoiler on Fans of Reality TV from a friend of "one of the bachelors" and she said her friend was from Texas, would get a two-stepping date, and he was there for the wrong reasons - to be the next bachelor. This was before the show even started. Perhaps his entire character was scripted. I mean, when they showed his swoop-in kiss on their date again last night, I about fell over laughing!

                    I would adore Michael as the bachelor though. He's freaking hilarious. I loved the little clip of the car scene and he's always saying funny things. I would love to see someone who's just playful and fun be the bachelor. I'm over hotter than crap guys that wait for women to swoon over them. But unfortunatley, I've learned that I end up annoyed by the recycled bach/bachettes. Bob- douche. Deanna- BIATCH. Jason- BORING and an ass. Jillian- cute, but annoying. I was just hate for my illusion of Michael to be shattered if he were as toolish as the rest.
                    haha...great point. I loved all of them when they were one of ten and liked them less when they moved on to be the 'main character'. Too funny.

                      I would NOT watch the bachelor if Jake was it.. He really irks me.
