I have never watched the Bachelorette before this season and only started watching it after not being able to get my Castle fix until September 20th, when Season 2 begins.
With that said, I've had fun looking at all the eye candy the bachelors have provided (and yes, I've admitted that to FH and he knows that no one else could satisfy me the way he does), seeing all the fun dates that I'd never go on but still appreciate. What does any of that have to do with the LEO world?
Profiling, my friends. Profiling.
I realize that this reality series is still a television show and the producers are showing their audience what they want to show them, so we (the viewers) get a very controlled perspective of the characters behind the show.
I've taken all of that with a grain of salt, realizing that some of the voiceover may be spliced and added where convenient. I've also realized that there is some quick thinking deflection being done by one bachelor that's not on the show for love.

During their interviews, Goldenheart looked brokenhearted yet extremely worried about Jillian because of previous conversations he had had with Master Manipulator. As for the country singer, you could see the sly smirks and egotistical knowhow in wooing Jillian around his little finger.
And what of the Bachelorette?
Cute as a button and very trusting, Jillian (aka Miss Intuition) is falling head over heels for Master Manipulator yet keeps questioning if he's sincere. If you've read Gavin DeBecker's Protecting the Gift you'll know what I'm talking about when I say that Miss Intuition is not listening to her gut instincts about Master Manipulator OR Goldenheart.
I was noticing a lot of body language signs that I thought FH would be interested in, so I shared with him my novice LEO profiling.
I have never seen FH light up about let alone watch a chick show, but he got so excited pointing out the psychological body language in Master Manipulator while showing off his interrogation training in spotting lie after lie. Well, it impressed me!
FH then explained why Miss Intuition fell for it and how Master Manipulator's family was part of the web of lies. As for Goldenheart? I don't think we've seen the last of him.
I have never had SO much fun watching a program before, and it's all because of the perspectives LEOs have when profiling individuals. Best date night ever!!!
Is this only awesome to me or can you relate? I'd love to hear if you've had similar experiences while watching "reality" tv. ;)
