I know half of America is ready to crucify Frank right now. But I don't think he was dishonest and I don't think he was a coward. I'm just relieved to finally know why he couldn't commit to Ali. The mystery to me is why he spent the first half of the season so obsessed with Ali and so concerned every time another guy went out with her. Next thing we know, Ali is falling in love with him and he's not so sure about her.
This is what I love about the show--it's real life folks. I have to hand it to Frank though--I'm glad he figured this out now, instead of after she gave him the final rose. I was a little embarassed for Ali in how hard she took the news. Her pity party on the beach with Chris Harrison was a little hard to watch.
Of course Frank wasn't going to tell Ali about Rachel or Danielle or whatever the heck her name was earlier in the season. He kept thinking that as things progressed with Ali, his feelings for his ex would go away. I side with Frank on this one. Its not as if he was dating his ex on the sly during the show like Justin or Ed from last season.
The interesting thing about the situation is that clearly, Ali had already chosen Frank in her head. That's why she took it so hard. The question now is--Will she choose on of these other guys? Is either one marriage material?
Of course Roberto is not ugly--not one little bit--but once again, does the dude even have a personality? I'm still not sure.
What about Chris? I like Chris. He is a stand up guy. But if she picks him, she might as well pack her bags for Cape Cod because he ain't never leaving home. In fact, she can just plan to spend every holiday and every waking minute right there at his dad's house with his brothers and their wives. I love a man that loves his family but in this case, it scares me a bit.
Let's talk about Ali's clothes. My favorite swimsuit was the one she wore with Chris--the navy and white one with the white skirt and little sweater over the top. I loved the dress she wore on her romantic evening date with Roberto. I hated the outfit Ali wore on her evening date with Chris--basically a tie-dyed tank with sweats. However, in all honestly, when I went to Kauai with Sam last year, I basically wore the same kind of stuff out to dinner every night and I never even bothered to wear make-up. I was in complete vacation mode. (That Sam's a lucky guy!) I also hated the mu mu Ali wore at the faux rose ceremony.
Speaking of the rose ceremony. Do you think the producers made Ali still have it just to fill the time? I thought it was interesting that Ali didn't tell the other guys that Frank left her for his ex. She said he had unfinished business at home implying it was something shady.
I don't know who she's going to pick now. I could kind of see her not pick either guy a la Brad Womack (best bachelor ever.) In the end, I guess I think she will pick Roberto even though I would rather see her with Chris. To be honest, I've lost interest now that Frank is gone. I think they had the most chemistry. We're off to Bora Bora to meet the fam. I refuse to watch the Men Tell All unless next Monday rolls around and I'm completely desperate.
