Bachelors! You've suffered through long waits, rigorous questioning and incompetence on the part of your host, but now it's YOUR turn to ask our beautiful bachelorette some questions of your own! They say turnabout is fair play, so...

The Verbose Vision:
Tell me about the most interesting place you lived?

The Historian Heartthrob:
Where do you see yourself in 10 years, and what kind of man do you see yourself with?

The Chiseled Child-Lover:
What are you looking for in a relationship?

Flame-Haired Israeli Princess, answer these questions and we will move on to the final phase!

I'm sorry, but does the name "Chisled Child Lover" remind anyone else of a pedophile?

The Flame-Haired Israeli Princess:

Most interesting place I've lived:
Jerusalem, Israel. There are few places in the world that have the amount of history, grandeur and character that Jerusalem does. The first time I lived there I don't remember as well, as it was from when I was born to shortly after that. But I lived there for a year again recently, and it was unbelievable. I would be happy to go on for a very long time, but you can just ask me for details... I will give them. [Smile]

Where I see myself in 10 years, and with what kind of man:
This is a very tough question. I have difficulty answering where I see myself next week! But I will do my best. Though there are really two ways to answer this question.

The way I would LIKE to see myself in 10 years is happily married (or in a happy relationship that will lead to marriage -- 29, after all, is a perfectly acceptable age by which to be married), and working for Disney, doing voice characterization and professional singing in their films. This is after graduate school, but I am always learning, always expanding horizons... I don't think, as long as I live, that I will ever stop learning. I learn just as much outside the classroom as I do in it. My husband/fiance will work in WHATEVER profession he wants to... he mustn't feel that he has to work in order to support the family. We will more than get by between the two of us. He can engage in whatever work captures his interest, but he must let me work as well. He will be kind and loving, but not utterly devoted... I want us to have more of a close romantic friendship than anything. I want to be able to hold a serious conversation, to confide in him, but also to goof off and laugh together about random things that pop into our heads. I want him to occasionally be spontaneous and romantic, to surprise me with beautiful thoughts and gestures that will make me feel... well, like a girl... but I also want him to be dependable, strong and solid. Eventually we will have kids, but probably not yet by that point.

It is, however, very difficult to predict what will happen 10 years from now. It is very presumptuous of me to assign myself a job like that... I would love to be able to sing professionally, but I know how difficult it is. Either way, however, I will be engaging in some sort of musical profession... it is my one true passion. Maybe I'll teach it. Either way, I'll be happy... Mr. Future and I will be happy together. Happiness is really my one main ambition. [Smile]

What I'm looking for in a relationship:
I really kind of outlined this already, but I'm looking for a man who can both make me laugh, and make me feel loved. I want passion and romance, but I also want close friendship... loyalty, real love. There has to be a healthy balance between the physical side of the relationship and the rest of it (conversation, stuff that we do together, and so on)... not too much of one or the other. Bear in mind that I'm currently describing the ideal relationship... the one that would potentially lead to something more.

Celaeno- Well I think I will just start asking questions on my own already. Anonymity does not suit me well.

Again, I apologize for the delay.

BACHELORS! You have a final, two-fold task before our lovely lady chooses a suitor. Answer one more question from the Flame-Haired Israeli Princess' list of questions and, based on the response you received to your last question, submit another question for her to answer.

Hopefully, the conclusion will come in less than 24 hours!

THE SHOW CONTINUES!

The Flame-Haired Israeli Princess: What do you expect out of a potential relationship?

The Historian Heartthrob:I don't know what I expect really. I'd assume that a relationship would be a good time for both of us. We'd be there for each other emotionally, to support each other, and to make each other laugh. We'd play board games on cold winter nights and drink hot chocolate with Frank Sinatra playing in the background, and go camping in the summer and hit the zoo and have a picnic. It'd be about enjoying each other's company, and being a solid emotional pillar in each other's lives.

I'd try to be as romantic as possible a lot of the time, buying little thoughtful gifts and sending notes and things here and there to let you know how special you are.

But the majority of the relationship would be a celebration of a mutual trust and understanding, mutual support, love and taking joy in each other.

My question for you, Bachelorette, is: What is your stance on long distance relationships?

The Flame-Haired Israeli Princess: What do you expect out of a potential relationship?

The Chiseled Child-Lover:I try never to expect too much in any new relationship. But I am looking for someone who shares at least some of my interests, like my varitey show comedy I do several times a month at a theater I work at. I think I am looking for someone who would be willing to participate in some of my favorite activities like snowboarding, my varitey show comedy I do several times a month, hiking, and thats about it. I am not hoping for anyone who wants to do all of these things I would enjoy doing even one of these activities together. But I just want someone who I can listen to talk about her day, let me protect her from anything that I can, let me comfort her when she needs it, and let me be by her side.

The Flame-Haired Israeli Princess: Do you like animals, and if so, what kinds?

The Verbose Vision: I love pretty much all animals (petted a bear and a wolf once while working at a wild life preserve). I grew up with a pair of sibling dogs, Molly & Max. They were half basset hound, half Labrador retriever. We got them when they were three and they lived to be about 14. Right now my mom has my cat, and his sister cat, Ender and Valentine. We rescued them from our neighbor who was going to drown them and 5 of their litter mates. Ender is 15 lbs and none of it fat, he's a massive black cat. He's 11 now, still spry, but smart enough not to get into fights anymore. He's friendly and vocal and intelligent and the bestest kitty in the whole world!

Tell me, Princess, what is the most important trait you are looking for in a mate?

In the interest of time, however, we're going to refrain from forcing the poor, patient Bachelorette to answer another round of questions, preferring instead to move on to...

THE FINALE!


Three Bachelors. One Bachelorette. Five thousand cameras. Who will die first? Which of these fine bachelors is secretly gay*? Do they know that the Flame-Haired Israeli Princess is really carrying the shogun's baby? WHAT IS GOING ON?

All this and more next time, where we reveal a HIGHLY SURPRISING, UNANTICIPATED TWIST!**

*Not really.
**Twist not included.

If I have to sign up for schlock TV because Hatrack has failed in fulfilling my media-sensationalism needs, I'll just be . . . be . . . be . . .

Vanna pH could continue the Dating Game!

...if she could get in contact with erosomniac.

ps. I think erosomniac is projecting about one of the bachelors being gay.

Not for a while. Eros gave up Hatcrack for lent.

Maybe if you ask Lyrhawn very very nicely he'll take it over.

I'd vote for starting anew, this time WITHOUT the titles. Because it's pretty obvious who each participant is, which defeats the "game" part of the game. [Smile]
