I listened to that poscast too, Rosepetal. He and his guest were talking about the fact that MTV lets the Real World people do social media, give out spoilers etc. and ABC won't allow JP to even come on his show, tweet etc. It seems very one-sided since Ben has been tweeting and following people related to the show for a very long time now. It also seems strange that for a time he was openly tweeting former contestants, then those tweets disappeared, but now he is still allowed to tweet even if it is business only (which we know it is not). Chantal was totally shut down after she was found out but Ben is allowed to continue? I guess as the seasons progress, the rules change. :gotcha: Totally agree...it has to do with $$$$$$$$$$$!

I think that the men are less intimidated by the producers than the women. Kate from Baldwin's season told quite the stories of intimidation and screaming by the producers for posting her blogs. Plus Chantal was considered for the Bachelorette position until they went with Ashley, so she had to play by the producers' rules. Ben may know he is not being considered and honestly does not care what the producers think.

If the producers were smart, one season they should convince the F2 to disappear IRL and on social media, and have the F1 be seen everywhere IRL and on the internet. That would drive the sleuthers nuts! 8)

And maybe they did just that this year!! :gotcha:

I was waiting for that one! giggling

my guess is that they are trying to woo Ben as the Bachelor and so they are giving him lots of freedom and promoting his wine a lot to convince him that it would be good for him to do it. Good Bach candidates keep turning them down because they don't want to be taken advantage of or pushed around. TPTB know they've got to prove that they're loosening up and that they'll give the Bach more freedom in order to get the deal done. (Whether they actually will remains to be seen, but this is the courting process!)

If TPTB are looking to Ben for the new Bachelor slot it would also tie in with an edit that shows nothing untoward about him. He's been given a very clean edit so far. Not sure though that it would be a good thing knowing how TPTB treat their leads.

Nutty, you may be right about TPTB flip flopping with their F2 invisible and their F1 out and about.

Oh, yes JBanana! Who woulda thunk it...TPTB are finally realizing that a tight leash makes one want to tug in the opposite direction! :yes:

Actually JP's friend said JP wasn't allowed to.

Ben F is even posting pics on FB. The pics are posted in his thread. I don't understand why one of the F2 can do that?

Count Ash S. on the dumbfounded train. She said that last season they were shut down immediately for tweeting and or social networking... except Chantal (I think they looked the other way for a little while). Makes me think there is their new way of trying to tell America that F2 is alright and has moved on... don't hate our new wonderful couple... love them... follow them on twitter... buy tabliods about them!!! $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Sold! Where should I run to spend my money on the wonderfulness of Jash?! lolpanda lolpanda

:27:

This is bizarre. giggling I'm shocked Fleiss is allowing this to go on. He must seriously be worried about ratings dropping.
