I'd like to take this opportunity to award Ben as the worst bachelor out of all the seasons. From Day 1 he started making out with each girl and I think he is not ready to settle down. Seems like he's just trying to find somewhere to keep his lips busy for a few months --- and promote his winery at the same time.
I feel as if he asks the same pointless questions to each girl during one-on-one time. Maybe before he went on the show he thought he was ready to find someone, but at this point it's clear he’s not and just going through the motions of being the Bachelor.
All right, now off to Belize.
Ben, wearing the least-classiest T-shirt ever made, picked up Lindzi and the two took his helicopter out to the ocean and jumped out of it. Once again, they overcame a fear. Whoopty-doo. Spent the day on a rented yacht and Lindzi is sexy. At night as they were walking on the dock, they walk up where their dinner was set up. There were candles, food, wine, cushions, pillows, blankets, etc., and this is what Lindzi said: "Ohh, is this for us?!!!” Um, no, it's for the camera crew, dummy. Date ended with one of the worst fairy-tale stories ever written, which they stuffed into a bottle and threw into the ocean.
Emily has really grown on me and she can do way better than Ben. Seemed like they had a perfect date. OK, that is all I have to say about this date.
Courtney finally got her one-on-one. She threatened to leave if she didn't get a one-on-one, so ABC probably made sure she got one. She and Ben walked through a jungle and made their way up a Mayan temple. I wish they would have shown them walking down those stairs. Courtney brought up how she’s not getting along with the girls in the house and then Ben asked her if she has lots of close friends back home. Her response was, "I have a lot of good guy friends."
Girls like this are not nice people. She’s a completely different person with Ben and he's falling into her trap. What I find interesting about Courtney’s approach is this is similar to what Emily Maynard did to Brad. She made Brad show her why he deserves her and let Brad chase her the whole season. All the other girls fall all over him. Sorry, but men want a chase. They want the girl they can’t have. That’s exactly what Courtney is. However, Emily is a way better person than this mutant.
I thought for sure Courtney was gone when Ben pulled her aside during the rose ceremony, but the genius kept her in it. He blatantly said he had stronger feelings for the model, and that his connection with her was deeper than it was with the other women. There's something going on with Courtney's face. Could her eyes be any farther apart? It's like they’re scared of each other. Pretty soon they will be above each ear.
Ben creepily woke up Rachel, Kacie, and Nicki at 4 a.m. and told them to get ready. He's just soooooo spontaneous. I'm not sure which two it was, but that was the fastest I've ever seen two girls shave their legs and armpits. I've actually never watched two girls do that, but it was fast.
Ben took Rachel, Kacie and Nicki swimming with sharks. How romantic. Rachel was being a pansy and didn't want to jump in the ocean with eight sharks around the boat. Date was lame and ended with the three girls telling Ben how brutally annoying she is. He did what every other guy in America does when a girl tries to have a serious conversation --- and that is not pay attention one bit. In this case, he should have.
Rachel and Emily
I could care less that Rachel is gone, but I'm furious (and so is half our team) that he eliminated Emily. Probably one of the smartest girls this season, but Ben was too dumb to realize that. She deserves way better and someone who doesn't have a bad set of hair.
Kacie, Nicki, Lindzi, Courtney
(Pretty pumped that I got three of them right)
Who's going to win?
As much as I want Kacie and Lindzi, I think Ben will make a terrible decision and choose Courtney. I think Kacie gets eliminated this week after the previews show her dad telling her he will say "No" if Ben asks if he can marry her. Ben does not want to get rejected again so he will gas her.
