Hey it’s Jesse again! I am back, but I’m not gonna couple anyone up this time around. Rather, I’m going to talk about the future. With your help, that is.  We’re going to collaborate this week! More on that in a minute, but first…

I have to say (yet again) Brad is doing an amazing job, and I agree with almost all of his decisions. He really is back to follow his heart. I know he is sitting somewhere with his new girl right now watching the season unfold, and I hope he is happy.

Watching the hometown dates was interesting. I think it’s fun to get to know people through their families. It helps you understand why they are the way they are.  The girls were more relaxed at home, and clearly relishing the time spent with their loved ones. That will help Brad with his decision; he’s gotten a taste of what real life might be like with the four girls.

It was cool to see how down-to-earth and open Chantal O & Ashley H’s families were. And it was super-cute to see Emily with her daughter Rikki. It reminded me alot of seeing Jason Mesnick with his son Ty.

I understand why Brad sent Shawntel N. home. It wasn’t anything she did; she was great. But you have to remember, when you marry someone you are marrying their family, and in Shawntel N’s case, her dad didn’t come across as super-open to her moving to Texas. And that’s a BIG DEAL.

So, I’ve been doing entirely too much talking and speculating on this blog! Now it’s your turn. I want you to talk about the Bachelor Pad 2 and see who you think should be the contestants on this coming season.  As loyal fans, I know you’re gonna have some great ideas about the next season of the ‘Pad, so feel free to post comments at the bottom of this blog.

Should the ‘Pad 2 be a mix of couples and singles like last season? All Couples? All Singles? And who are some faces you would like to see again? What kind of challenges would you like to see this time around? And what curve balls would you like to see thrown their way?

Maybe the producers should do a couples version of the ‘Pad – something like AFTER THE BACHELOR PAD? With contestants such as Jason & Molly, Trista & Ryan?

Cant wait to read all your comments. Who knows – maybe some of your brilliant ideas will make it to the show!

That’s it for this week!  See ya next week in South Africa.
