It looks like next week Brad takes Emily to a racetrack. Given that her late fiancĂ© was a NASCAR driver, why would he — or the producers — choose that specific setting?
Chris Harrison: If you take it at face value, I get why people are angry, but people need to see the date and see how it plays out. This is another watershed, breakthrough moment and it's therapeutic for Brad and Emily. It's a very moving episode and obviously a moving date. It's definitely scary, but again if you play armchair psychologist, it's kind of a hurdle they need to get over. We have to force the issue because we have such a time constraint. It puts Brad on the spot, puts Emily on the spot, like you guys are either going to deal with this and go forward, or it's not going to happen and it's over.

Why is Brad keeping Michelle Money around?
Chris Harrison:
When she's with Brad, she likes to be that girl that's kind of hard to get, is feisty, and guys tend to like that to a certain degree. We'll see if she wears out her welcome, but right now he finds it appealing.
