So, I think he and Lauren are actually a better match. Not that I agree by any means with how he handled any of it but it was far better than stringing Becca along for a longer period of time and then dumping her. He actually did Becca a HUGE favor and I am sure she will soon agree with that even though it may sting a bit right now. And Arie will continue to get the wrath for his "sins" for quite some time. LOL

But by the looks of it, she has already put it all behind her and is moving on. I highly doubt she would take such a huge step by becoming the Bachelorette if she wasn't ready

C'est la vie....

There is something kinda odd about the guy, sort of gives off a weird vibe.

So.....physical violence is ok as long as it's the woman doing the slapping or acting out physically.....Got it. Just making sure the double standard is alive and well.

If any of you believed that was real, you bought it hook, line and sinker. Last week when I saw Arie and Becca on their date and they were saying they loved each other it came off as fake, I saw no connection. Becca seemed so much different, elated, yet I felt the two were play acting. Told myself, the producers have set this up for Arie to propose to Becca, they'll break up, then he and Lauren will get together. So why was Becca elated you ask? Either because she'll be the next Bachelorette or she received a real swell check that put a smile on her face.

My concern was for Lauren and whether or not they clued her in beforehand, but I knew they had to have. No way would she consider taking Arie back if he let her go without warning it was a set-up to create drama. [It also gave CBS an extra night of Bachelor ratings (ad revenue)].

Wasn't the first thing that was fake involving Becca. Recall her ex-boyfriend showing up? When she opened the door there was no camera behind her, yet as the guy was talking all of a sudden a camerman was inside behind Becca. Then when she was sitting on the step as the guy continued talking again there was no camerman behind her, yet without his conversation being interrupted suddenly a camernan appeared behind her like a magic. Way too obvious.

I like watching the Bachelor to see what ladies will be on, and how they interact and which ones are there for the right reasons, but the fake scenes are annoying. Even Chris Harrison had a hard time keeping a straight face when they came back from the break-up scene a time or two.

Poor Arie, he's going to take so much grief from people who actually believe he treated Becca and Lauren that way. He shouldn't have agreed to it. Hope the money he made was worth it.
Ever watch them when they kiss? Arie was kissing Becca above her mouth, below her mouth, and the side of her mouth. Once he kissed her nose. Of course with his eyes closed, I guess he could miss, but still. If they were really in love, they would have kissed on the mouth more. Just my opinion of course. He was kissing the other ladies with a whole lot of tongue. But not Becca. Hmmm.

Watching "After the final rose" now, because there is nothing else on. I wonder if Becca will become the next Bachelorette. Hey, maybe her ex-bf will show up there too.

So you must not have watched tonight's (Tues) show where it was announced that Becca IS the next Bachelorette.

Actually. Becca reacted just like a lot of upper midwest people are characterized. I live up here....that strength and restraint is common. I totally respected her for being a class act.

And the *final*, final show last night was even better. Truly she is the winner on this season.

I think that all the previous contestants gave her support. she seemed much stronger last night. I would have loved to be at the after show bit.h fest hanging out with all of them.....

I also think that she will have fun being the next bachelorette. I'll be watching.

P.S. I cannot believe that Arie propsed to Lauren on last night's show.....cringe worthy.

I read on a blog earlier written by an ex bachelorette, Ali The Bachelor Proposal and Heartbreak | Ali Fedotowsky that the contract is that if they break up within 2 years of the proposal that Neil Lane gets the rings back.

Funny I put on here last night that Becca was named the new Bachlorette AFTER it was announced on the show and a Mod removed it stating spoiler alert???!! How is it a spoiler if it was already said on the show? At any rate, I’m over this show. When crap happens like Atie proposing to one girl and then proposing to another soon after, that’s not good TV, it’s garbage!
