Well, I thought that it was VERY romantic.
I've loved Emily from the start. What I wouldn't give to be as pretty as she is? The girl is gorgeous.
I know that reality Steve promised that Brad picked Chantal at first, but lets be honest. What guy wouldn't pick Emily? Plus, Brad would look like a pretty big d-bag if he didn't pick the girl with the deceased fiance and child (and just strung her along for 12 episodes).
I think it was pretty obvious from the start of the finale episode that Chantal was out the door. There was a connection in previous episodes, but Brad was ALL ABOUT Emily in the last one.
Do I think Chantal is fun? Sure. But I also think that she is desperate. I don't think Chantal & Brad would have worked out. Yes, I know she said that she was in love with him -- many, many times-- even the first week in fact-- but I don't think it was love. I think it was desperation.
Rumor has it that Chantal was only divorced for TWO months before she fell in "love" with Brad. The season stopped taping 6 weeks ago and she's already in love with a new man and announced it on the After the Final Rose show. I think someone is in love with the idea of being love. No one falls in love three times, with three different men in a manner of 4 months. Sorry. You may think she's cool. I think she's desperate.
Now, on to the proposal. So romantic. Reminded me of my own husband up there. =)
I truly hope they work out. I want to believe that more than 3 out of 15 couples can make it simply because I love this show.
After watching the After the Final Rose show I'm skeptical.
I have a feeling that the sweet, innocent Emily that was portrayed on TV isn't nearly the same girl that she is with the cameras off and the doors closed. No one can be that perfect in real life. Plus, she's obviously feisty if she has already canceled and wedding and broken up with him once post taping.
Emily is upset about the relationships that Brad formed with the other ladies and expressed a lot of jealousy surrounding it. I see her point. It has to be hard to see Brad with Chantal and Ashley.... HOWEVER.... she has seen the bachelor. Anyone that has seen the bachelor should know to expect that the man is forced to date 25 other women. That's just part of the process. I do think Emily is taking it a tad bit too far. It's what you signed up for.
About the "Don't poke the bear comment." What do you ladies think of that? Do you think that Brad is physically abusive or just yells a lot? I'm intrigued by the comment and would love to learn more about what that means. I believe that Brad has problems. He's cute. I'm sure girls have wanted to date/marry him in the past. To be 38 without a single proposal or prior marriage is interesting to me.... it leads me to believe that he must be hard to live/deal/share a life with or that he has a big dark secret.
Only time will tell.
I for one and totally team Emily and Brad. I have my fingers crossed that they can stay together. Gosh, can you imagine what their babies will look like?
