Full Transcript of Interview with Doug
Here is the full transcript of the conference call interview with Doug. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take part in it this week, but here is the transcript of what he had to say to all of the other reporters this week. It's really interesting. He talks about his confrontation with Chris, who is right for Emily, and what it was like to go through his awkward departure.
Question: So, my first question for you is, you know, you seemed very shocked when you finally realized Emily was sending you home. What was going through your mind while she was talking and where did you think she was going with her speech?
Like, did you think she was just mentioning things you two need to work on or maybe you zoned out a little bit because you were thinking about when to kiss her?
Doug Clerget: Yes, Beth, that's actually a really great question and I appreciate it. I was sitting - I was thinking to myself, you know, I really probably should have tried kissing her. I thought she was saying, you know, "hey, Doug, like, you've got to be a little more aggressive in terms of, you know, showing me, you know, you're interested in me."
And I think, you know, Emily was such a sweetheart throughout the whole thing and just because I'm a single dad, I, you know, I tend to take things a little more slowly and so, I really just wanted to get to know Emily on a personal level and build a good friendship there.
And so, she was talking to me and I thought she was - I thought the conversation was heading towards, you know, like, you know, come on, give me a kiss and then I really wasn't expecting to be sent home. I was hoping to get a hometown date and so I was kind of bummed out.
