Not really; just trying to liven things up. Anyway, it's time for Chris to tease Sarah about not getting it, and Sarah says that Chad said he was tired, and she had no reason not to accept that; she trusted Brad and wasn't looking out for a trick. I gave them crap for it at the time, and I still think that, if the only reason you're on the show is try to marry that one guy, you should be able to smell that particular rat, but it's a reasonable enough explanation. Solisa backs Sarah up, and says that, after her one-on-one time with Brad, Lindsey went up to Solisa and said she thought Brad had been drinking. Heh. Lindsey then says she could tell right away when she hugged Chad that "he was a little bit shorter," but she didn't know how to bring that up, or if she should, so she didn't. Chris as Lindsey: "'Did you stay in the dryer a little too long, or…?'" But Lindsey says the same thing as Sarah -- why wouldn't she expect it to be Brad, versus someone else.
Another break, and then Brad himself comes out to non-answer some non-questions from Chris. It's deeply dull: Chris asks if it's awkward for Brad to see all the rejects, but Brad is happy to see them. Brad is happy to have had the opportunity to become The Bachelor. Brad often worried about making a mistake re: women he didn't give roses to. Every Rose Ceremony broke his heart.
Now the women ask Brad questions. Hillary leads with the fact that she gets it now that they were just friends, which gets a big laugh, but she wonders why he wasn't more direct. "Like if you had a tattoo that said 'Just Friends,'" Chris suggests. So mean. Love it. Brad jokes that he does have that tat, actually, then says more seriously says that he loves Hillary to death, but not that way, and he tried to tell her that, nicely, but she didn't get it; he's sorry the producers wouldn't allow him to spare her the embarrassment. (That last part was silent.) Next up is Bettina, who wants to know why Brad gave her a rose when her family bummed him out so much -- yet another question whose clear answer is, "Because the producers 'advised' me to keep you around," but Brad can't say that, so he responds diplomatically that it's about him and Bettina, not about her parents, so he gave her the rose for her, not for her family. Chris tries to get more out of Brad on why Bettina didn't make it past Cabo, but he just repeats that he didn't feel like he knew her -- although Brad does say rather pointedly that, while it's fine in theory for Bettina to be reserved as a person, if you go on this show, you kind of have to put that aside, or not be surprised if it bites you on the ass.
