    I didn't realize that the finale and After the Final Rose ep will be on Sunday this time. Bachelor Pad starts on Monday.

    I'm going to post a SP alert, if there isn't one already.

    No discussion after the finale? I skipped some part since I'm not really watching the show at all.

    Boy... leave up to ABC to do the usual misdirection. They had me thinking she'd pick neither person.

    Glad to see that things seem like they're going well w/Jef and Emily, so far.

    I kind of only skimmed the finale, but I think I got the jist of it. I always had a feeling she wasn't going to pick Ari i the end, and he'd become the next Bachelor. i guess we'll see if that's right (if they announced that I missed it).

    I also never thought she'd pick Jeff, but the last episode kind of made it make more sense for me. He is the best Dad material if that's what she's looking for. He's also very "not scary" and after Brad, that's probably a pretty attractive attribute. It'll be interesting to see how far it actually goes. Did he propose or did they decide to wait and see how it goes? I was so sure they would that I tuned out once I found out she picked Jeff. :)

    Ah - she shoulda picked Arie. :(

    I think her fear motivated her choice - Arie was a little "scarier". Probably a better match for her, but I guess we will never know.

    She did look happy with Jef. Maybe together they will find the other "f"...

    The Karate Kid 2 music?? LOL...That was hilarious.

    Humanitarian aid trip to Africa?? WTF? Stay home and leave that crap to some 20-somethings with no kids....and don't get AIDS. Count me out. I just fell out of love.

    I still can't believe she picked the little kid that came in on a skateboard. He looks like he should be dating Ricki.


    PEOPLE PLEASE ONE "F" ONLY!!! He is clearly a JEF and not a JEFF or even a GEOFF!

    I think one of the reasons she is attracted to Jef is because, in many ways, he is like a big kid.

    Remember, this is a girl who was engaged and pregnant at 18. She didn't get to have much of a "youth" - she had a lot of responsibility being a single parent at a very young age. I think she wants to do the things that most 20-somethings think about doing - and this guy has the money and desire to make her happy. I was wondering if they planned on taking the kid to Africa - not sure if that is such a great idea, but it's not my kid...

    And the music throughout the season was hilarious - I cracked up every time she started kissing one of the guys and they automatically switched to some corny, make-out music. Hilarious!!!

    I was shocked she chose Jef. I really thought it would be Arie. But I do think these two will go the distance. Jef will be a much better dad than Arie.

    I think it's great they are going to Africa to help get clean water for people. It will be good to get away so the tabloids can't tear them asunder. I imagine they won't be gone more than a couple of weeks though because of Little Ricky. I wish the show had shown a little more about Jef's company and what it does.

    I felt very badly for Arie though. Perhaps being the next Bachelor will ease his pain.

    This has been my favorite season of all The Bachelorettes and The Bachelors. It seemed the most real and honest. Maybe because I relate to Emily as a single mom.

    Would YOU go to Africa and risk leaving your own child(ren) motherless? Are those people getting fresh water more important than your own children?

    OK, now that's just a little extreme.

    There are plenty of places in Africa that are not dangerous - just in great need of help.

    I think it is admirable that she and Jef want to make a difference there - if I had the time and resources, I would love to do the same.

    It's not as if going there puts them at any more risk than a lot of other places you can travel. Hell - going to the movies in your local mall can prove to be more dangerous as we have learned...

    Just sayin'...

    Whaaaat? Because I am my child's only parent I avoid putting my own life in danger. But I do travel occasionally.

    Wow. Really?

    Feel the same way about firefighters who run into burning buildings? Or military?

    Just. Wow.

    Those are very different things from traveling to Africa on a humanitarian mission. As a single mother, I would not become a fire fighter or volunteer for war because if I die my young child is parentless.

    Running into a burning building and volunteering for war are the same as going to Africa????? I think you must have some kind of personal reason for thinking that because it is not logical.

    What date is everyone marking their calendars showing the date the end it (and each go to People Magazine to discuss "what went wrong").

    :)

    I still say it will happen in less than 6 months. My mom who is an avid viewer pretty much agrees.

    Both are risking your life for the sake of others. It's a wonderfully unselfish thing to do. But it can also be view as irresponsible if you are raising a child on your own.

    Reality Steve had it right until the final two. I didn't read any spoilers until today.
