Anyone going on a reality show to find love is a tool.

IMHO, of course! Mr. Green

Right on!

It was pretty anti-climactic..... Neutral

I had thought the last few weeks for sure it was KJ, but then last night you could just tell it was going to be Estella. She was on my poo list with all the early crying, but she grew on me again the last couple weeks (and of course she for the most part shut down the water works). KJ has never been my fav, but the poor girl, I think she really thought she'd have that ring on her finger. Then again, who can feel sorry for the women that get dumped because they went on the dumb show to begin with.

I think it was really lame he bought a ring and then gave it to her as a promise ring. What are they in high school?? I respect the fact he wasn't ready to propose, but he should've kept the ring until he was. So what does he ask for it back now someday if he wants to propose? That's just lame. I hope they'll be happy but am very curious how they'll do in the real world.... dunno

As we were watching (aka as I was forcing my hubby to watch so I could comment to someone), I was getting so frustrated and just saying how stupid and dumb the whole show was....but as I told my hubby, it makes darn good TV. Embarassed

my cow-orker said she could tell too. We really couldn't. KJ Is just the better fit. Bob is weird around Estella and they haven't had any connection beyond her lack of personal space. When he went to her house in Bev. Hills it was like they didn't really know eachother. Which, while we're on that, have we established what she did for a living in order to live on her own in BH since she was 15 in a house like that??

She's still on my poo list. She acts like she memorized Trista's every mannerism and voice inflection and used it. She's the brunette WAY too skinny Trista. The squeaky voice--AAAHHH Mad is that going to sound so cute when she's 50?? KJ still isn't my favorite, I still contend she's a 24 year old Kathie Lee Gifford but I felt they fit better. I did feel a little sorry for her, because it did seem like he lead her on. I didn't get any inclination from him when they were together that it wouldn't be her. She handled the exit well though I thought. I give her props for being mad but keeping it together, rather than being a weaping pathetic mess. She'll do okay without him.

BIG FAT 1 TO ALL OF THAT!
What is the deal with the promise ring?? I thought people who were 15 got those?!? How incredibly lame. How embarrassing to Estella to have to explain to people why she is wearing an $80K engagement ring on her right hand.

Such great trash TV. I can't wait for Trista and Ryan's wedding! Do you think they'll have a bachelorette next? I hope so, thats been my favorite so far.

Good points about E. I didn't see the similarities between her and Trista until you said that. But even though she's a bit on the too skinny side, I really think she is beautiful...that jet black hair is really striking! My hubby and I were talking about how pretty it was and he was like "why don't you try that?" and I gasped in horror at the thought of my fair skin with black hair and we decided he didn't want to be married to Morticia.

So what about the visits with Bob's family? They obviously liked E better. Maybe that influenced him? They tried to act like they like KJ, too, and they probably did, just not as much. She was a little too open with how in love with Bob she is...I mean, that's nice and all but you don't even know if you are the one he wants so I don't think I'd mention my undying love every 5 seconds. Kindov embarassing. Embarassed Poor girl though, I think she already had her summers planned out at that house. Bob's mom definitely didn't like her as much and that was obvious by the "she didn't try to get to know me" comment.

I hate to admit but I'll watch the dumb Trista and Ryan stuff. By the previews looks as though it may be entertaining with lots of disagreements over how much pink is ok.

I think they'll do another Bachelor next. I bet the ratings are better because the girls are so catty and there is much more drama in the house. With the guys it was just like a bunch of frat boys hanging out.

Ok I have to go get a life now. Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed

See, we were kind of split on the parent visits as well. Clearly the guys (his dad and BIL) liked KJ better, because they hardly spoke with Estella and they both loved KJ, but I guess Mom's vote rules. Although, I didn't think it was fair for her to say that KJ didn't try to get to know her when Mom initiated the walk around the lake with Estella.

Funny too about her looks, I do think she's really pretty, much prettier than KJ, but the thing that strikes me is her hair being too dark for her fair complexion. I was born with that problem and it looks to me like she dyes hers that way. So my advice to you, stick with your gut, don't go dark!! Mr. Green

I can't wait for the wedding stuff. The pink looks nauseating. It should be interesting how little of a say Ryan will have in all of this.

I was still kindov thinking they liked KJ, but were trying to make up for all the raving they did for E. Who knows, I can tell you I'd like to see all the stuff the edit out to really know what went on, but then we'd probably know too much and that's the point (to not know).

I'm very curious to see what they will say on the show tonight where Bob and E talk and also KJ. Very interesting indeed.....

One more question, how is no one else getting in on this cheryl? Come on, we're really the only ones watching. What does that say about us. Embarassed Oh, I mean I think it says we are cool. thumbs up

YES! Should be very interesting. KJ will probably play it very well. I just hope E doesn't cry. Or do that eyelash flutter like she's got something in her eye...

Yeah super cool... Embarassed Hey, someone besides the two of us is at least reading this thread, look at the numbers! I think we have some closet bachelor watchers who crave our analysis weekly. Mr. Green

This whole season he was different from when he was on the bachelorette, personality, looks, everything. He kind of creeped me out too. The Tommy Boy laugh is what started getting to me.

As I do with all these reality shows, I only watched the last few episodes, so I have no history with any of these women before the final 4. I thought it should be Estella, but thought he'd pick KJ. I think his family influenced him, and the fact that with KJ they were just too manic together, and would probably be in competition for the spotlight.

I did at least appreciate her honesty at the Rose Ceremony where she said she wasn't alright, and that this sucked. Thought that was funny.
