    I figured that she was probably on some sort of medication, and drinking made her extra loopy. But then, she kind of went into the same weird behavior during the show last night. I don't know what to think. An act, or mental issues? Very strange.

    I am sure that there are many pictures of Jade out there, and I can assure you that the one I saw was not tasteful, or beautiful or sensual. Definitely not playboyesque - it was full-on porn and kind of gross. I can see how it would be hard to justify a girl who seems really sweet and innocent with those pictures - and it's not like he has a lot of time to get to know her afterwards.

    As for Crazy Ashley, I got the feeling that last night was all a joke. She is much more beautiful than she appeared on the show, and I think she's got the stare that goes on too long that makes you wonder, and she uses it well. I think it's an act. I don't watch the Bachelor in Paradise shows or any of the spin-offs but it got her on another TV show and that's why most of the girls do it.

    Kelsey didn't come across any better than in the show. I think she was portrayed accurately. I don't even think she's a villain we like to hate so maybe she'll just go back to her life, pretending she's superior to everybody else she meets and loving her "story" and being proud of herself for, uh, living.

    I didn't like the way Britt played the victim, she's a child. She's a mean girl, blaming Carly and she would not let it go - every time she spoke it was "Carly's fault" even when it should have had nothing to do with her. I don't think Carly was allowed to talk and explain herself, which is too bad. I liked her. After that, I don't think she's in the running for Bachelorette now, I think it'll be Kaitlyn.

    I don't think Chris really wants any of them. I predict he picks somebody to end the show, like I said, Whitney, but I don't think there is love. His poor little brain is very confused. In a couple months she's still at her job and he's back picking corn and probably calling all the girls he rejected to see if they want to try again. :)

    Yup, agree 100%. I think that if Jade hadn't come out with the porn pics & video, she would've been the last one standing. She had everything Chris was looking for - beauty, "girl next door" shyness, small town "values" (at least he thought), willing to live in Arlington, and definite, major chemistry with him. I didn't really see ANY chemistry between Chris and Whitney, and think that she only made it because Jade was no longer in the running.

    Interesting reunion.

    Britt - Clueless, but not necessarily in a good way. She's just at that stage in life when she's super self-involved and all about the drama. Give her another 10 years or so to mature and her inner heart might have a chance to be front and center.

    Carly - had gotten a really positive edit on the show which was balanced out by tonight's not-so-positive edit. Britt really felt like they were friends but Carly never did. When I first saw her, she seemed to have really changed her look - amped up hair and makeup, so I thought she may have been the next Bachelorette. Clearly she won't be now, and I'm wondering if this more polished look is "really" who she is.

    Kaitlyn - LOVE LOVE her and hope she gets a shot at the Bachelorette and finding a true love. ha, I'm a sap, I know. :) But also, I think she could use a bit of help with makeup and hair, because she is stunning.

    Jade - really seems sweet. As her dad says, deserves someone who appreciates all aspects of her.

    Ashley S - so funny, assuming it's a bit of embellishment of her true personality rather than a mental illness. The onion for Chris H (not funny and shameless tv commercial in the middle of the show for his book that didn't even pretend to be conversational) cracked me up.

    I must have seen different pics. Oh well. Again, in the context of the show, and the small town Chris lives in, I totally get how he would be worried about Jade and all the talk likely to ensue.

    And I really agree about Ashley. Looking forward to whatever craziness she brings to BiP!

    I read a spoiler about who the new Bachelorette is:

    Reality Steve says it's Kaitlyn. He was on team Britt.

    Whitney will be a good fit for this family I think.

    And how about the new Bachelorette: Survivor Edition with two Bachelorettes for night one. Will be interesting. The girls played nice on the ATFR show last night but you know they will be quite competitive that first night.

    So Whitney and Chris are implementing the "Becca Plan". They're pursuing their relationship, but Whitney is not immediately moving to Iowa. Interesting.

    I actually have more faith in this potential marriage than I have had in any other coupling. But I'm still only about 40% sold.

    And I hate, hate, hate the dual Bachelorettes. It would be one thing if there were two Kaitlyns to choose from. But Britt? No thanks.

    And I would really like to get some details on how this is going to work. At one point, Chris Harrison implied that the bachelors would choose one on the first night. Unclear: does that mean the Bachelorette with the fewest votes on the first night leaves? Or doe s that mean that we have parallel Bachelorettes, with each Bachelor committed to the one he chose after exiting the limo?

    In the words of Kaitlyn: "This is less than ideal."

    I thought the end was pretty predictable. I do think they have a chance - who the hell else is going to move to nowhereville to be with an immature boring guy? As I said earlier, these two deserve each other.

    The dual Bachelorettes should be interesting. My take is that it will be a competition inside a competition - so we get the drama of the guys AND the drama of the girls all competing against each other. It could be wacky enough to work, especially with the big personalities of the 2 girls. I'm in! :D

    I thought that on the first night, either Brit or Kaitlyn goes home.

    BTW, did not know Chris will be on DWTS...fame whore! :D

    I think on the first night, the guys get to decide for whom they are vying...

    Not sure how much input the girls get.

    However they set this up, it is going to get ugly.

    I can't wait!!! :D

    I hate the dual bachelorette idea. It is such a rip-off for the girls. They just had to endure chasing after a guy for weeks and weeks and then getting rejected and now they have to beg for votes from strange guys? Plus, it can easily be a total set-up by the producers. You know they are going to ask the guys who they prefer in advance.

    As for the finale, I was impressed with the way Becca stayed honest and didn't just "play to win" by saying whatever Chris wanted to hear. I think Jimmy Kimmel was right and Becca just wasn't that into him. I think he and Whitney might have a shot. I'm not that concerned about her not moving out right away. As it stands, the distance is about a 4 hour drive--not so bad. She will need income while they make their plans.

    This. :thumbsdown:

    Boooooo to the producers who seem to love Britt. If she's the only one after one night I just can't see watching. A Kaitlyn season -- or even a full Kaitlyn and Britt season -- seems like it would be a ton of fun. A stacked room of bachelors into Britt will be an eerrgh moment.

    You say it like a woman cares about finding love by going on the show....I bet a very large % of anyone that goes on these shows cares more about their 15 minutes.

    So both Britt and Kaitlyn will get 7.5..... They both win, right?

    Here's what I think about women who are selected to be the Bachelorette....

    First of all, they are definitely women who are happy to take their 15 minutes--whether it is something they actively sought or just sort of fell into. What woman wouldn't want to be on TV wearing beautiful clothes, doing amazing thing, traveling, and having 25 hot dudes wanting to marry you (supposedly, at least)? Granted, some women are shy or not comfortable with their looks and would say, "Not me!" but those women aren't going to get selected. The women chosen are outgoing and at the prime of their physical hotness and are happy to put all that on TV while they have it. Can't blame them for that.

    But secondly, I firmly believe that these women are not wanting to be the Bachelorette so that they can break up with whoever "wins" and then date more men. As a sweeping general statement, I don't think most women are wired that way. I think the perfect romantic ending to being the Bachelorette is being a pretty pretty princess bride and living happily ever after with your hunky husband--and maybe being on Dancing with the Stars and then being a fashion correspondent for E!

    So, in conclusion, I think both women are in it for love at least as much as they are in it for fame.

    According to RealitySteve, a similar situation has happened already on Season 6 of The Bachelor. There were two guys, Byron and Jay, and this is how it went down:

    25 girls met both of the guys, then the girls decided who they wanted as the “Bachelor.” They were given a yellow rose (for Jay) and a white rose (for Byron), and each girl would go up and place the rose of the “Bachelor” they wanted on a tray. Jay and Byron had their backs turned to the women and didn’t see which ones voted for them. Once one “Bachelor” got to 13 roses (the majority), he was declared the “Bachelor.” Byron got to 13 first and at the time, Jay only had been given 7 roses. So they only showed 20 of the 25 votes, and Byron already had 13.

    Well according to that, the Bachelor show is running about 10% success rate, while the Bachelorette is running about 33%. Well the Bachelor drops down to about 5% if you don't count the Mesnick switch in the follow-up After the Final Rose.

    Looking at that, it seems that the guys showing up as the bachelor are less sincere than the ones showing up on the bachelorette.
