'The Bachelor' recap: After the Final Rose
So Brad comes out and they hug, and Chantal talks about their instant chemistry, and she asks at what point he knew it wasn't going to be her. Brad calls it a tough question to answer, by which he means "It was before I had sex with you," and so dodges by saying he knew early on that he had strong feelings for Emily. She calls him on that, and he says he doesn't know what to say. "I've always sung your praises," he says. Is that supposed to be better? "I had feelings for someone else, but I kept making you think you had a chance"?
Even Harrison kind of points out that Brad is trying not to get in trouble, and Chantal talks about it some more, and then Chantal is crying again, completely flummoxing Brad. "Oh, wait, you're crying. I thought you were laughing. Hey, come here," he says, and he hugs her, which she really should do her best to avoid. And then they talk about how happy they both are, because apparently Chantal has met somebody and is dating, and I feel pretty bad for Chantal's new boyfriend if he sees the way she's crying her eyes out over Brad.
