    Whether or not you consider kids to be baggage (which I don't), if that is your view, you have no business being on this show. But this obviously isn't the case, as people decide to come on the show for reasons besides finding love.

    During Ali's season there was Chris "The Phantom" N who made it to Episode 5 (out of 10).

    Strangely enough, I remember that guy more than the other guy. He at least talked to Ali on Camera once or twice. I don't think that other guy got a single minute of air time with her, if he talked to her at all. We theorized that since he is a Recovery Counselor he's probably sober and didn't have the "liquid courage" advantage the other guys enjoyed. :p

    I'm so proud of Emily for sending Ryan home and standing her ground against him. I really think Arie has this wrapped up. But Chris sure is sweet.

    I agree that this is Arie's contest to lose now. The teaser for next week is just a smokescreen. I think that Ryan was a producer's pick that they wanted to hang around for a few extra weeks.

    I just hope Ryan doesn't end up being next season's Bachelor... That's one I'd miss. What. A. Tool! :D

    Talking to Chris, he said it was pretty clear which guys were there for all the wrong reasons. Ryan specifically was aiming to be the next Bachelor.

    Chris left town last week to start filming on a different reality show. And Chris also claims he was paid absolutely nothing for being on the show. But he did get to travel around the world on their dime. I'm assuming he is getting paid on the new show.

    One thing that I laughed at, there is so much down time on the set, the guys were pretty much drinking all the time. Chris would comment on some scenes that he was completely trashed when they filmed the scene.

    The show must be Bachelor Pad.

    I guess we know now that he doesn't end up with Emily.

    I was going to say that. You might want to spoilerize your post (and Tiams - modify).

    Well. I'm guessing if he had any chance at that, it's gone now. Surely nobody would watch if he was the Bachelor right? God. Like that dude needs any more ego stroking. Can you imagine him as The Bachelor? :D:D:D

    Reality Steve has revealed the F4 and even F3. Another site I found confirmed the F3 and went down to the F2.

    F4 in no particular order
    Arie, Chris, Sean, Jef

    F3 in no particular order
    Jef, Arie, Sean

    F2
    Jef and Sean.

    I am not reading any spoilers, so I am just going with my gut.

    Clearly, the top 3 are Arie, Shawn and Jeff. Chris is a close 4th, but I don't think he has a shot at top 2. John and Doug are goners.

    I think the last 2 will be Arie and Shawn. At this point, she picks Arie.

    But I have never watched this show before, so I could be terribly wrong...:D

    No surprises last night. They really telegraphed the ending by overplaying Chris' anxiety and John's overconfidence. IMO, Emily came across as a whiner from the "Arie dated one of the producers 10 years ago" segment. That whole part of the show was unnecessary (Drama for the sake of drama). I'm glad that they showed her admitting to her overreaction.

    I don't know how those two (Chris and Doug) can face people today. They totally embarrassed themselves. Those two seriously need some therapy. Especially Doug.

    Her best line (paraphrasing) to Doug was "I don't mind a guy moving slowly but you don't move at all".

    I think that Chris might have gone off his meds that day :p As for Doug, some guys just move slower than others...you can't really fault him for that. But at some point, you would think he would say "I'm in the Final 6 - She must like me!!", instead of waiting for a beacon to make the announcement.

    I think Jef just pulled into second place, edging out Sean. He was so cute and sweet with the puppets. He has grown on me.
    Sounds fishy that his parents are gone because of some vague commitment. "I want to date you so hard and marry the f out of you". That was hilarious!

    Chris is losing it!

    I can't wait to see Arie in a race car! I think that is going to stir up some emotions in Emily.

    I found it interesting that although all of the drama about Arie and the producer was supposedly happening while they were in Prague, but the little background infomercial Chris Harrison gave us was filmed in Charlotte which production had supposedly already left. And why on earth didn't they film the 3 way talk among Emily, Producer and Arie?

    So that's what he said! I re-wound a few times to try and pick it up, but couldn't. & I'm too lazy to turn on CC :p

    ETA: I caught the "hard" and the "f", and came up with some interesting options :)

    From what I have read on other sites, his parents are Mormon missionaries away on a "mission".

    And re the "I'd date you so hard..." comment, it was funny, but no original.

    Agreed. I don't think that was really of any concern. Yes, Arie probably should have mentioned it at some point in conversation, but it really didn't affect anything.
    Without it, it would be a boring show. Though I really wonder how they get all these people to blubber in front of millions of people.
    Finally came to her senses. She may very well have not cared to begin with, but was instructed to overreact, just so they had some interesting footage.
