In my house....we were on two different teams. iKeith liked Chantal from show one and I just had a hunch that Brad was going to pick Emily. I picked Emily because I like to win...not because I wanted her to be with Brad.
I really think Chantal would have fit into his family and Brad seemed to fit into her family. I believe Chantal would have re-located in a heartbeat and would have moved heaven and earth to make things work. I don't think she'd have let a month go by without seeing him.
I think Brad is much more in love with Emily than Emily is in love with Brad.
I don't know Emily and I get the feeling we didn't get to know the REAL Emily on The Bachelor at all....perhaps the reality of leaving her daughter's extended family and starting a new life might be too much for her. She doesn't strike me as a risk taker.
Do you remember if Brad ever asked HER if she'd be willing to move to Austin? I honestly can't remember it coming up. To me...it's assumed that you'll move. I don't know why anyone would go on this show if they didn't plan on moving to the Bachelor's home town. I hope the winner of Ashley H's season is willing to move to Maine.
I really hope that Brad and Emily work out....but I don't have a good feeling about it.
