But first, a clip show. Christi meets Aaron for the first time and tells us she thought, "Wow. Wow." Christi insists to a slightly frightened Brooke that she's already falling for Aaron. Christi clings to Aaron at Napa Valley. Aaron kisses Christi to shut her up and stop crying, which Christi mistakes for wuv, twoo wuv. Christi freaks out when Anindita calls her out on her crazy-ass behavior around Suzanne. Christi cries and says that mean comments "hurt [her] heart." She's so ridiculous. Somehow, I had forgotten how unrelentingly overwrought Christi is. In some previously unseen footage, Christi tells Anindita that she's sorry for her reaction, but that she has the most "tender heart you'll ever meet." In a total Behind the Music moment, the image freezes on Christi and a tense chord plays. Then they show the clips of Aaron saying that he thought Christi had a "Fatal Attraction thing going on." We get a little box in the corner of the screen of Christi back on stage reacting to Aaron's comments. She's got a brittle smile plastered on her face. Aaron says he didn't understand why Christi was so emotional. In some more unseen footage, Christi tells us that they're always comparing her to Brunette Heather, because they're both from the beauty-pageant world. Christi responds, "Honestly -- I'm sorry, Heather -- but I don't think Heather's a girl he could take home to his family. And I was." Yeah! Heather was going to kill Aaron's mom and sleep with his dad! And then kill his dad! And then sleep with his dad's corpse! We hear everyone back at the stage going "Ooh!" to Christi's comment, while Heather and Christi both pretend to find it funny with their fake, beauty-queen laughs. Then we get several clips of Christi crying. Then she tells us she's going to be okay. Then she tells us she's not going to be okay. Heh. I'm going to have to cast my vote in the direction of "not."
Back on the stage, the audience applauds Christi's patheticness. Chris asks Christi if, looking back, her feelings of love were really genuine. Christi says that in hindsight, probably not. But she insists that she knows that she could have loved Aaron. She insists that the moments she spent with him were some of the best moments she had ever had. The parts where she wasn't crying, no doubt. Those five minutes were really awesome. Chris points out that Christi seemed to have fallen for Aaron awfully quickly. She says that Aaron asked them to "open up to this process and to open up to the idea that he could propose to any one of [them] in weeks. So if you're gonna be open to being proposed to in a couple of weeks, then you have to also be open to falling in love with someone much quicker than you ever would." See, Christi was just being a good sport. She didn't want to fall in love with Aaron that quickly. It was all just part of "the process."
