It came to mind while watching the whole fake parent thing that perhaps Amanda had a bad experience with a previous boyfriend and just wanted to make sure she could trust him, hence the 'prank' as she put it.
I personally did not find that funny at all, rather I found it very weird and distasteful. I also think it went too far, not just timewise, but the whole groping/sexual thing. What a waste of real quality 1:1 time with him and her family. Though he was a great sport about it on the outside, I wonder if he really felt ok with it on the inside.
I thought Shayne's mom was nice, and so was her sister. I am more impressed with them, and her Father, than I am with Shayne. Lorenzo was cool, he was brutally honest with Matt. I thought he was basically saying to matt, 'Hey.. my daughter has some issues, and its my fault because I wasnt in her life a whole lot.' I respected that, but I cant help but to wonder if the whole Shayne going on the bachelor thing wasnt anything more than to get herself out there to promote herself and her career.
It seems strange that Shayne keeps referring to herself as this big 'actress' as she is currently not working and from what I understand, and really hasnt landed any major, big roles. Sure, she was on Gen Hosp (2 episodes in 2003, about 13 episodes in 2004, 2 episdoes in 2005, and 1 episode in 2006 - all playing the part of Emily). But hey, Gen Hosp runs 5 days a week. A total of 18-20 shows in 4 years isnt that much in the grande scheme of things. Other acting parts Shayne has played a flight attendant 2x, and a background bikini gal in another show. Maybe a few spots here and there in 2008, but thats really about it.
It just seems as though Shayne is really making it a much bigger deal than it really is, and it also seems as though she feels it should set her apart from everyone else on the show, and/or makes her better than anyone else. JMHO
I was thinking it was Amanda all the way, until I saw the fake parents thing last night. I now think he picks Chelsea. It seems like whomever he picks he is in love with and he proposes. I am really hopeful that its geniune on his behalf, and that they, whomever Matt chooses to be his bride, live happily ever after. : )
