Reality Bites (by jill b) - The Bachlorette

The Bachelorette
Is it me or shouldn't Jillian be a tad perky if she was really in love with 3 guys? The dates with Reid and Kiptyn were boring and forgettable - I watched the show last night and barely remember what they did.
Here is what bothers me about Jillian and Kiptyn - she doesn't think she is good enough for him and that is kind of sad.
Reid is so super sweet and normal - and I think he would have been a good match for her. But she seems to feel like it is not there if the guy is not jumping up and screaming "I love you". With 2 other guys in the picture, that is a risky move to make after just a couple of weeks on TV!
Even more than his dramatic return, this episode was totally the Ed show. Ed really stepped it up by bringing his parents to Hawaii to meet Jillian so she could stop throwing it in his face that he didn't have a hometown date. She likes that he listens to her - blah blah. Ed also showed his fashion flair with his seersucker jacket (which I was a fan of and apparently Jillian told him he looked like an ice cream man) and 1980's bathing suit (which he clearly stole from Tom Selleck's Magnum PI wardrobe). It was also kind of nice that he came to console her after she got back from putting Reid in the limo.

One interesting theory that I read on a blog - Reid is coming back to profess his love to Jillian. She's going to pull a Brad Womack and reject both Kiptyn and Ed, but this time Jillian will give the final rose to a bachelor she has previously rejected, namely Reid.

What do you think of this theory? Any others as to what will happen at the "alter"? Will Jillian get a ring???
