You're not alone there Rein,  I just want to see Zak one more time.  I could care less about that bus they are talking about with CH and former contestants hitting viewing parties.  Nor do I need to see Emily, Ashley and Ali giving her advice on how to handle the guys - can she not make any decisions on her own or is the advice going to be as dorky as flying those three to Madeira to gawk at the guys through binoculars?  Sounds pretty much like another waste of 2 hours ahead to me.  If it weren't for Zak being there I doubt I would bother tuning in. No

The problem is that due to "creative" editing, we don't have a clear and lovable hero as the one who appears to be the winner.  Are they leading us down the garden path with her declaration of love and his mixed feelings?  Or the amped up idea that Chris is still in the race?

Are all those tears for real?  OR did they come after Ben and James were exposed?  When she might have lost hope in the process and wanted to go home?

When the manipulations of TPTB become SO obvious that you can't even count on the slightest bit of truth, watching the show becomes annoying.  In the past, we got SOME inkling of who these people were.  Now, we're served tidbits of whatever clips they dig up and splice to FORM our perception.

Some romantic footage of Des with Brooks might have been helpful to make this choice easier to swallow.  This will likely be my last season.  I don't like feeling duped.

Edit:  Something just occurred to me.  This season, I've spent more time questioning the cut and splice than I have wondering who she'd choose.  Just sayin'.

They have either been giving away the ending with her declarations of love for Brooks or she picks Chris or Drew as a consolation prize. Neither is a good ending IMO. There is a poster named atem on the 'ette board. She is a big time poster and sleuther over there and has been saying for the last few days that MF finally has an unspoiled season because there is no evidence to support the spoiler. And she is tracking their where-a-bouts, screen caps, every little detail. That was a bit curious to me, but otherwise the season is a dud. I have no interest in the MTA beyond the previews to see if there is anything further to support what atem is saying.

Thanks Grace, I haven't been on the other board for awhile so I guess I will take a little side trip over there and see what is going on.  Funny that RS is sticking with his spoiler and saying they are still engaged - guess we will know for sure in about 3 weeks or so.  Suspect

It would be a shocking ending if RS was stumped. I would love it. I know who I would pick if it was left up to me. One is not really ready for marriage not sure one is ready for a commitment and I really think the one left is really crazy about her. IMHO

It would make a lot of people's day gin if RS has been duped - only time will tell!

Grace I love your avatar - I had that one also but you beat me to it so I'm showing him shirtless!

There are a lot of sleuthers on the other board who delight in digging into every little clue down to nail polish, finger shapes, etc. Many of them are refugees from FORT, including the two admins. I go over there a lot but by this time during a season the over-attention to detail gets on my nerves. TPTB have given the detail-oriented folks a lot to play with this season. I'll just be glad when it's over.

I am looking forward to Des telling someone just what a butthead someone was. I would love to see his whole world turned upside down and he has a very hard time getting a date. I would be laughing so hard. Payback can be a rough and tough road. It is beyond my mind grasp why people can not treat other people with respect. It has been something I have never understood and wondered how they might have been raised.

Well gin in my opinion there is more than one butthead that will be there tonight and the buttheads are not who I'm interested in seeing or hearing from.  I am only interested in seeing Zak for one more time because I really liked his personality and thought he was a genuinely nice guy.  I hope I was duped by him but I don't think so or at least I hope not.  With this stupid show who knows!

Like your avi too. Some are thinking it is a safehouse pic. What is funny is that they are trying to decide if his chest hair would have had time to grow in that much!

I always root for RS to be wrong at this stage. It would make future seasons so much more interesting because we would not know again like the good 'ole days. It seems like TPTB could be in on spoiling it though. Why else does Jimmy Kimmel give it away every season now? If Brooks leaves and comes back at the last minute, I am hoping she tells him to go fly a kite. Drew and Des, I just don't see.

I have no idea if it is a safe house picture or not but what I do like is he looks very happy and healthy and that's the important thing to me.  Some of the stuff they center in on the other site really seems over the top to me.  The finale was filmed almost 2 1/2 months ago so why wouldn't it be enough time to grow in that much?  SMH

I'm sure the ABC gives Jimmy Kimmel the names of the guys for him to put up and I thought it was rather strange the way he just through Chris' picture aside because his favorite snack was almonds.  WTH was that all about and he had one picture and I can't remember which one now that wasn't even in the top 4 this season - so something seemed off to me about that whole thing with him this time. 


I do think that this season is so highly edited that it is anyone's guess what really is happening.  I do agree with you on Drew and Des and I just don't see it - it seems there is nothing there with her except the physicality of his looks and she said his kisses.  But at one point she had said that Zak kissed the best and then it was Drew so who knows who has the best kisses. Crazy

Zack and Chris are really great men. I am surprised that they are single. I doubt they will be single much longer.

I felt they were testing the waters for Juan Pablo or Zak to be the next bachelor tonight.

That could be Grace.  I really did not care for the show tonight.  Des seemed to be saying what Ali told her to say and what she was saying sure didn't come out her before this night nor did she show even a hint of what she was saying.  My opinion of her just went down more tonight.  I didn't feel she answered some questions honestly either like when Ben asked her why she let that battering of him go on for 8 hours.  I will be glad when this pitiful season is over and it will be hard to hang in there til the end for me.

yep... she did ignore that question from Ben and it was a fair question! You can tell Ben has been reading and/or posting on the motherboard because that was the main question there as well. I was surprised Dan went after Ben too. That was some new info, though why Dan felt he should discuss it on national television is a mystery. Ben's poor kid will watch that on youtube one day.

 Grace, I thought that, too.  I also thought that CH wanted Des to know that Zak still loved her.  Plus, she told him why she didn't choose him, and it wasn't something they couldn't talk about more and work out.  I don't know - it's just a thought about her and Zak.  She looked like she wanted to cry when he sang that song to her, and she also looked like she wanted to cry when CH said the preview for next week was coming up.

I noticed she teared up when Zack sang. She has no ideal just what a great guy he is. He would carry her on a pillow and spoil her with love. I have heard that Zack shows up asking for a second chance. I do not know if it is true. Who ever gets him is getting a great guy. I know you can lead a heart to love but you can not make it fall in love.

If Brooks leaves and comes back I hope she gives him a quarter and tells him to call her when he grows up.

I only watched the last half-hour. I promised myself I would not watch more. The camera was on Zak and Juan Pablo a lot. Either of them would make a great Bachelor, IMHO. Joan Pablo is just adorable.

I also noticed there was no reference to whether Des is happy, engaged, etc. I suspect that was done on purpose to heighten our interest in the remaining two episodes.

Frankly, I don't CARE if Ben was subjected to the grilling.  How does one defend lies and brown-nosing?  The boys came up with the perfect "politician" tag for him.  As far as the boy, I don't think a kid that young watched the show.  By the time he'd be old enough to understand it, this season will be ancient history and long forgotten - unless Mom taped it to someday show her son what an a**h**** his father is.  I know there were a few who actually liked Ben, but he rang "phony" to me from the start.  Des was right about his blank eyes.

James?  Good riddance!

As for Juan Pablo, he DOES seem like a sweetheart.  He appears almost obsessed with his daughter to the point I wonder how a wife would fit in.  More than looking for a wife, he seems to be "screening" for a mother.  (I suspect it might be the reason Des was eventually put off.)  Is the mother dead?  CH mentioned how popular he was this season despite the skimpy screen time.  I'd take him for an extremely passionate man, as evidenced by his love and commitment to his Camila(sp?).  Do they LIVE in the US or Argentina?

Zak.  Poor Zak.  His revelation about his personal life was sad.  Apparently, he's driven away some women with his zeal toward fun and adventure.  Hiding behind his smile.  Did anyone else interpret it this way?  When she mentioned his smile, he understood why she let him go - as if it's a pattern in his life.  Sad.  He's SO likeable.  When he talked about his age and his friends all being married, I FELT his longing.  I was hooked.
