One of the most exciting things to watch after The Bachelor season ends, is The Bachelor: After the Final Rose
. It's an episode that is only an hour long but catches up on what happened to the woman that was dumped...and the woman that was chosen as the only woman in The Bachelor's new life.
As you probably know by now, Emily
was the 'winner' of this season of The Bachelor. The proposal was genuine, sweet and Brad
seemed to be honest and speaking from the heart when he said that he wanted to spend forever with her. It was like a fairytale ending...two people who really seemed to fall in love together and want to be together no matter what.
Well, that was before the honeymoon phase was over...
On After the Final Rose, it was a shock to hear that they had spent a month apart and had been going through some tough times. Life was a lot harder to figure out after The Bachelor than they both thought and they learned different things about each other and themselves in the process.
They had been living in a dream world...exotic dates all the time, quite a bit of alone time (especially at the end) and the relief from the daily stress of life. But in reality, especially with Emily's daughter Ricky in the picture, the couple had become an insta-family. Can you talk about pressure?
I really hope that Emily and Brad are able to pull through whatever difficulties they are facing right now. I don't think a lot of people really root for many relationships to fail...but why do they change all of a sudden? When does fun turn into seriousness? When does fantasy turn into reality? And, what do you think is going to happen between Emily and Brad?
