I know my answer to the second is definitely NO, and I honestly think I would have had an exceptionally hard time believing he wasn't Fleissed again watching the season play out both on screen as well as seeing so many things off screen post show, that pretty much screamed otherwise.

Some seasons, RS will be wrong, but some seasons, he will be right. I think too many people presumed one or the other to be absolutes.

I wonder if Ben just flat out told him.. to be honest if it ended the way it did, and it was me in that situation, I would be pissed.

I wonder whether Fleiss didn't have a hand in giving RS the information this time. I said it a couple of weeks ago, maybe he was taken back by the disaster that was Brad II and how Emily reacted to the edit.

I honestly liked Ben the first night when he exited the limo with the wine, it wasn't until the cupcake conversation that I decided I liked JP too.

All in all, I'm very happy for Ashley and hope that I may spot her around town before she decided to move to NYC.

yes I'll never believe RS 100% as to who the F1 is either, though I do appreciate his spoilers. I'll always remain skeptical and go by what I feel and what I see. He had little to nothing to do with who I thought was F1 or who my favorite was. MF let him have this one for who knows what reason, but I doubt he'll let him have the next one. I do wonder if we'll ever get a season where RS spoils the wrong F1 and we don't know it until the finale airs.

To sleuth or not to sleuth, that is the question...

Personally, I say go for it regardless of what Reality Wing Ding and any other blogger says regarding future seasons but be aware that the ever lovely and talented promo and editing monkeys at ABC seem to have finally bought a clue and will mess with us.

What makes me hitch a pissy fit when reading these posts is when the conclusion goes against logic or the laws of physics and/or nature. (Yes, the sun really does set in the west). It's easy to flip screencaps to fool folks. But on the otherhand, I'm going to try not to give a hoot if other posters on the board don't agree with my conclusions. I don't evaluate my self-worth by what folks that I don't even know in real life think about me.

The other thing which has been beaten to death, given mouth-to-mouth and then dragged out and shot, is the idea that just because the aforementioned Wing Ding or any other blogger says that person X is the F1, that we collectively turn off our brains and reasoning abilities and say "Yes, Steve. We have been called Steve." What about the unspoiled masses including my circle of friends who broke down and asked who the final 4 were BUT were adament that they didn't want to know the F1?

When one of them texted me last night and said "OMG, It's JP isn't it?" does that mean that somehow she's been influenced by RS? (BTW - She's picked Reid, Roberto, Chantal in the past).

And as far as the wackadoodle obvious edit goes, well it's very shocking to wonder if Mike Fliess' small heart has grown three sizes since the Brad/Emily fandango. But perhaps he did stop and think that if he wants more successful couples, then he ought not to fan the flames by showing the lead having great fun/chemistry/passion/whatever with everyone but his/her choosen F1.

And this is all I have to say about that...

when will start the next bachelor season in the air? Do we have dates yet?


Suggestions:

San, Love_me: next season can we have a BODY LANGUAGE thead please? But maybe I missed this thread?

Can we also have a VENTING thread. We learned this season (again) that emotions are really high and some really need to vent and argue no matter how we try to explain that this is not the kind of fun that the majority is looking for here. So what about a compromise and create a special thread so they can argue until they fall asleep on their keybords? I am teasing but honestly I got really upset to jump from one thread to another and see the same people annoying everyone and being rude and disrespectul sometimes.

Do you think the IGNORE button will be available? I used it but seems that it never worked for me. sad




THANK YOU so much for not only the creation of this forum but for not being the gestapo that we all saw at FORT. Overall, I saw 99% incredible people here and I had tons of fun to participate. :alltens

:yes: I agree with you on having a venting thread next season and maybe separate shipper threads where only the posters that ship that couple can post in it? Maybe that will cut down on some of the arguing, though I'm surprised it didn't get even worse than it did. I had lots of fun posting here and I'm sad we all have to wait until January to do it again.

Another suggestion: IDGI a thread for all the letters people use instead of words, this one is "I don't get it." The acronyms that some people use are hard for people to figure out sometimes. Even though I mostly lurked for years at the FORT, there were some this year that stumped me.

Great time on this board thanks to San and Love_Me!
