Agree with all of this, and it also makes sense of how much many of us--me included--on this board liked him at first, found him charming and even dashing, until his true colors were revealed.

So true! 

The first comment I ever made on this board about them after the initial intros and wedding ceremonies (including the tea ceremony) was that I thought they were the most compatible and best matched couple in the history of the show!! 

OMG!  How reality has come crashing down on me.....isn't the old saying:  "You can't tell a book by its cover"???

J is very good at crafting a likable façade around himself, which is fine as long as you never dig any deeper.

He probably is the type of guy who is the life of the party and seems very popular but in reality, has very few or no friends that really know him.

It's worse than that. She believes the responsibility for the success of the marriage is completely in Ryan's hands. And she's actually not taking any responsibility.

What should Brett do? She already gave him the Tower of 100 Compliments. 

And never mind about her messiness. Ryan was checked out long before that revelation. 

As for the 900-pound manatee capable of up-ending (and some known to have done so) a kayak? Well, bravo to admonishing old Brett. How understanding. 

Same with flying. You know what my husband did after I told him I could no longer get on a plane, thus curtailing his beloved trips to Europe? He drove us to vacation spots in the US. 

Brett can't become petite. She's not a blonde. It's unlikely she'll change her opinions  on politics, hunting, or Country dance. Paradoxically, Brett is a Good Ole Gal, just not the type Ryan desires. 

IOW, Ryan---as with IMO too many of the participants  in this show over the years---really wanted the show to match him with the type of woman he had always failed with before, NOT with someone different for a change.

Is Johnny trying to win the Emmy for best performance in a reality show? Just kidding. But, seriously, his histrionics are like bad acting. I guess he figures he'll get more attention if he gets the villain edit. Ok. We get it. Bao is not your type. You can't stand being in the same room with her. You've made that very clear. 

 Every week Johnny becomes more of  A Dick. I don't know how Bao is lasting this long.

I think not dealing with confrontation is a big part of it. It is much easier to ghost than to say “I no longer want to see you”, particularly early in the relationship. I also think some men ghost because they want to leave their options open, either for relationships or late night booty calls.

I imagine J thinks of himself as amazingly charismatic and charming. Not to be unkind but he has a reputation as a player and that is probably not due to his amazing good looks.

I think he is offended he was matched with Bao because he thinks he can do much better. He judged her to be not good enough 15 years ago and thinks that everyone will agree with him that he is out of her league. I guess some people are just delusional to their own level of appeal.

 Is anybody who dates Johnny after this is nuts.

There is definitely a part of me that thinks he is hoping this reality show gets him into the acting biz.

I'd also bet this dipshit has such low self-awareness that he *thinks* the audience is in love with him, not her and he's probably shocked seeing the fan reaction online.

Yes, I would bet that whatever happened on the flight was so disturbing to him that he will never be able to look at her the same again.  

The other thing was the revelation that the number of times she hears "you're a great girl, but..."  Have that discussion in private therapy session.  Instead, she's put it in his head that no one stays around -- that there is something wrong with her.   A confident person is like hey, didn't work out and that's a good thing.  

So to me, he sees unbalanced (the flight), insecure (everyone leaves me), dramatic (everyone leaves me), the unsexy (again, everyone leaves me) and adding to that someone who is apparently very messy and lazy which would make you think she's got depression issues.

I'll also bet that when they were getting married and her wedding dress was essentially a boob show, he turned off instead of on.  If you can't be somewhat demure on your wedding day, to me it would be a big red flag that this woman thinks her only assets are her boobs.  That dress was almost cut to her navel and tacky AF.  I have big boobs too, and would feel exposed in a dress like this.

 I have big boobs and I think that dress is tacky. You don't have to be covered up like a nun, but surely you could leave your breasts less exposed.
