Have you noticed that Shawtel and the Azevedo girl who is the bobsledder from Chico look a lot alike?

So the Internet says that Shawtel gets kicked off tomorrow night and the other Chantel is the eventual pick.

Most awkward thing I have seen on TV. Nice tips from her father on how not to be a parent. This was just sad. And she goes home tonight after telling him she loved him.

I got to tell you that I found Shawtel to be one classy lady and the best looking one of all. The guy however was a twit. I hope she was just acting when she said she loved him because he was a complete bore.

That whole talk where her dad was pretty much telling her she was letting him down if she married this guy and moved away was just plain sad.

The part that bothered me was Shawtel saying that "He was such a perfect guy and treated me like a princess." Doesn't she realize how phony the whole thing was? Doesn't she realize that he didn't pay or arrange for her to fly to exotic lands or go on her New York shopping spree? Life wouldn't be scripted by a television show handing him money or having a production staff arrange for expensive dates. When she got home and saw that he never had anything to say other than, "Okay, okay...I see your point." How could she tell that bozo that she loved him? That's scary that she could say that to someone so easily without reciprocation and fully knowing he was doing it with several others at the same time. It goes to show you that anyone will say anything for money. You could also tell that after seeing the Seattle home, he wasn't going to be impressed with Chico or driving down Park Avenue.

Yeah that whole "princess" thing just shows how grotesque the whole show is. The whole thing is organized by producers. He goes to parks with the other girls but Shawntell takes him to the mortuary for their time together? Give me a break. No way she thought of that on her own. He didn't do anything for her that wasn't planned out by the show. The whole thing was just plain sad. It was like they went out of their way to make her look bad compared to the other girls. Her family seemed selfish, her job was made to look extra creepy. Yuck Yuck Yuck

I TOTALLY agree with you Macy. In MY opinion Shawntel is a VERY nice "hometown" girl but her last appearance on this cheesy show made her seem like a COMPLETE ditz/idiot. HE treated her like a princess??? HE is "screwing" (okay, kissing, slobbering, and blowing smoke up all the girl's butts) around with THREE other girls at the time of the hometown date. If you don't mind sharing a dude with that many girls then I guess you might feel like a princess. And as far as I know, HE doesn't pay for diddly squat on the show. I would say ABC (the network) made her feel like the princess. Does he even have a JOB??? I know when he was on the Bachelor before (yes, I have watched/suffered through all the Bachelors/Bachelorettes, I guess I get some weird kick out of other people's pain and agony)he "owned" a bar or something. This guy Brad is an ABSOLUTE douchebag. He just sounds like a drip when listening to him talk. How can he attract all these women??? If I didn't know any better I would say they are desperate. I realize the pickens in Chico are slim when it comes to finding a good looking, nice, successful, AND "no baggage" guy but Brad is just as worthless. I am glad finding out on here that he doesn't end up choosing that blond from NC. I am sure Ricky Hendricks is rolling over in his grave right now and I'm sure Rick Hendricks must have flipped a nut when finding out Emily was gonna be on THIS show looking for a date. Exposing his granddaughter like that. Brad ended up with the perfect girl for him. She seems just as bad as him. A match made in heaven. And I thought the same thing as Macy, why would Brad choose a hometownsy girl Like Shawntel after seeing her "roots" when he can live the "high life" in a HUGE home in Seattle. Why did they drive him down Park Ave. of all streets in Chico??? Park Ave and that side of town is an eyesore. And how embaressing for Rick Newton !!! They edited it perfect to where it made him sound like a complete A-hole. Talk about laying a guilt trip on your daughter. If I didn't know Rick I would think he was rude, demanding, and a mean father. Well Shawntel, welcome back to the podunk town of Chico. You almost got out !!!!:):)

For the person who said Destiny is dating Aaron Rodgers, where did you hear that? Is that even true?
