Then there's the montage of bloopers and outtakes that always make all of the contestants -- even Michelle! -- seem far more likeable than they ever do during the season. Except for Brad, who somehow manages to seem even more stiff when he's joking around. More like someone who really wants to be thought of as funny than someone who actually is funny, you know? No, not like ME. Worth noting: elephants having sex in the water in the background while Emily and Brad try to enjoy a romantic picnic.
Anyway, it's on to the recap of the final two women: fun-loving, sparkling-eyed Chantal, who's one of the few contestants who actually says she loves the Bachelor instead of some sort of qualification like "I can see myself falling in love with the Bachelor," versus blonde, stately, reserved knockout Emily. No idea who Brad is going to choose, but his voiceover for Emily includes him saying, "I want Emily to be my wife." If nothing else, that should really make things awkward if he winds up proposing to Chantal.
