    Oh, no! Not Kaitlyn! Oh, well. Guess she can be the Bachelorette. He must really see something in Becca.

    Just found this thread. I love to hate the bachelor/bachelorette show for what it stands for. LOL!

    Anyway, I am from that part of the country, originally (Davenport, IA/Moline, IL). I think Chris Soules is the most genuine person that has ever been on the show. Being in Arlington wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. It is an hour give or take another 10 minutes to get to 3 other towns of any size. One being Cedar Rapids which is fairly sizable being the 2nd largest city in Iowa. Dubuque is in a gorgeous part of Iowa, it's about an hour or so from Arlington. Waterloo is also about an hour away. I live in a huge city now and commute approximately an hour to work, but do have shopping close to where I live.

    According to Google, there are fertility clinics in Cedar Rapids and Dubuque, don't know about the others. So, Whitney really could still have a career.

    Becca just moves so slow and I don't mean in falling in love. Doesn't she and Chris already resemble each other? The downward turn of the corners of their mouths. They almost speak exactly alike, through their teeth. I think he's more attracted to her because she seems so familiar. She'd probably have more of a chance finding a similar job as a chiro assistant. She's in chiro land - Palmer chiropractic college is in Davenport, IA. You can hardly swing a cat without bumping into a chiropractor in Iowa.

    Kaitlyn, well, I just doubt Kaitlyn would be all that happy. Though Chris sure has seemed attracted to her right from the beginning. I think Chris is thinking of how happy the women would be if they moved to Arlington. Kaitlyn and her family live in Canada part of the year and Phoenix part of the year. Is that because they are wealthy or is it because their work moves between the two areas? She's a grownup who moves with her family back and forth? Something about Kaitlyn just seems a bit off to me, though I liked her a lot more in later episodes.

    Personally, I have felt for the last 2 or 3 weeks that Whitney is who he will end up with. I think he thinks she's classy. She does seem like a genuinely nice young woman.

    By the way, I was so sad to see Carly go. The one date they had where they went to that relationship coach who ended up being a sexual relationship coach - I thought they made a slight connection when Carly finally said she felt uncomfortable with where this date was going. And, then again when he heard the song she wrote for him. But both were fleeting connections on his part. I hope she can find someone. I really like her. She's who I would have picked for him from the very beginning.

    Maybe it's what he "doesn't see in her"......if you know what I mean.....

    I bet the producers know/knew full well about clinics near Arlington and have edited out anything related to that which could have come up in conversation.

    And, yeah, I do think she is classy and this could possibly be one of the rare surviving couples if he picks Whitney.




    I also am curious who from this crew ends up on #BachelorInParadise

    Well, color me surprised. I really thought Kaitlin would make it to the final 2. I think at this point she and Carly are the top contenders for the next Bachelorette...

    So now we have Whitney and Becca. I think either of them would be a good fit for him. They are both boring and dull, just like him.

    Should be interesting to see who he picks...

    I think he likes her a lot. I think he was going to dump her, but she convinced him not to. I think it was between her and Kaitlin (remember he said he was sure about one rose, but not the other). And she convinced him.

    I do think either Becca or Whitney would be a better fit for Iowa than Kaitlin. I think that town would squash her energy and enthusiasm. I think Chris knew it, too.

    During Chris' talk with Becca, they were talking about Arlington and she said something like, "I don't want you to think it is off the table". I know most Bachelor(ette) couples have to compromise on where they live, who moves where, etc., but they have been making it pretty clear that living in Arlington is written in stone.

    It would be extremely disappointing if ultimately Chris hired some farm manager and moved to L.A. to be on Dancing with the Stars and shoot for a Hollywood career. I would feel duped.....um, because everything on the Bachelor is exactly how it is presented. :)

    I don't think he had a better connection with Becca than he did with Kaitlyn. I think he decided on Whitney a long time ago, waffled on Becca/Kaitlyn, felt thrown by the virgin news, then fell victim to his last conversation. Kaitlyn should have asked for equal time.

    I hope Kaitlyn or Carly is the next Bachelorette. Not Becca, and not not not Britt.

    I think Whitney IS perfect for him.

    She is annoying and boring.

    A match made in heaven.

    I think Becca is his favorite but he sees her as a big risk. Whitney is a sure thing and the safe choice. I think there's a voice in his head saying "Whitney will do".

    No idea which he will pick. Take a chance? Or play it safe?

    I agree that Becca is likely his favorite, but Whitney is all in and playing to win. She's saying and doing everything to make Chris feel that she wants him, and his Iowa life. That's got to be pretty powerful. I always worry that the person at the end may choose the one that seems ready NOW as opposed to the one they might develop a better relationship with but take more time. The pressure of a making a proposal has to be influencing them.

    Nothing too shocking on The Women Tell All. I thought it was a little inappropriate how long Britt hugged Chris. Most of the emotion for me came from poor Jade. She really seemed gutted by her experience. Chris went into full tick-face when she was talking to him.

    The thing that got me thinking is that Chris Harrison never asked Chris about how things were going for him now. He always asks something like that (since the selection happened weeks ago) to kind of tease the finale. And Chris never said anything about being happy now or anything like that. I wonder...

    Hmmmmmmm.....

    And honestly, her pics.....er....so I have heard, are fairly nice and tasteful.

    Hmmmmm, already broken up or perhaps he brings someone back, or a combo of both? I wonder........



    I just loved the Ashley S sequence. She's crazy. Or perhaps, she is just a great actor. I really think it is all a put on that she's continuing with.

    I'll admit to finding them and they were not tasteful. At least the ones I saw. She reveals way too much, if you know what I mean. I would not want my wife to have that in her past.

    About the Women Tell All, I too think Ashley S is putting us on. After all, most people do these shows to get their foot in the "hollywood" door. Kelsey, to me, is actually weirder.

    Britt had some good points about Carly. But for the most part I agree that she just wanted to "win".

    ok, let me rephrase my thought. you are right. Tasteful might just be just topless, or just sexy bikini shots or the like. Compared to other mags, it's nothing shocking, though. But I think I can see where it made Chris uncomfortable. Especially living in Arlington when everyone knows everything that is going on. The talk would never end.

    In this blog at RealitySteve.com, you will find a link to the not-so-tasteful video that she showed Chris, on that couch. Search for NSFW on that page - the link to the video is just below that.
