Bachelor Ben Recap: Episode 6
Like many of you, I’m still processing the inelegant approach of Jaime’s spontaneous lap dance which clumsily forayed into the detailed instruction of how to properly execute the French kiss mastered by junior high kids under bleachers across America. Certainly, this will go down was one of my classic “bless her heart” moments in the history of the show.
For more embarrassing moments, feel free to check out my mini recap over at Huffington Post by clicking HERE. The big recap will be up later today.
Forget watching Emily Maynard on the Bachelorette. I think Emily O’Brien needs her own TV show. Loved the rap: “I don’t care if your hair gets frizzy”!
I lived in Panama for 8 years so was so excited to see some of the sites. That being said, it was another night of hiding behind pillows when Ben interacted with the women. Courtney is skanky! Last season I thought Ben had a lot of integrity but this season he is proving me wrong. How he cannot see through her is beyond me. Thinking with the wrong head.
I literally was screaming at the tv during Jamie’s lesson in intimacy with Ben. Also, I’m sure you take the time to read OHCH’s blog on ew.com. Two gems this week: he “hoped Ben was going to cut his hair” before Panama and the only thing he could think of during Jamie’s time was “Bless her heart.” I felt like he was taking cues from you! Can’t wait to see what you have to say about the episode, Lincee!
If you read OHCH’s blog, he used “bless her heart” about poor Jamie twice! He’s must be reading your blog, Lincee 🙂
The kiss scene with Jaime was the most awkward (seemingly endless) moment in Bachelor history, for me. At least in recent memory. My roommate and I were, quite literally, hiding behind pillows. (Pillow pets, to be exact… they’re really cuddly; don’t judge!)
Courtney is quite possibly the worst person to ever have lived, and if Ben doesn’t wake up and realize that, perhaps he deserves her. I’ve been trying to avoid the spoilers, because apparently there’s already been the inevitable leak re: who wins.
Emily’s rap in the outtakes was precious. I really like her, but my money is on Kacie B (or god-awful Courtney).
The kissing “lesson” was horrifying. I don’t even know what she was thinking. It was like reading a manufacturing procedure, step by step.
WTH is with Courtney’s facial tics? Other than being a completely awful person, I would have to slap her for the facial tics alone.
Last night’s ep was excruciating. Thank goodness for the PVR, I fast-forwarded through most of the episode…even Jake-the-fake’s season was better than this one! Courtney is completing hijacking the show.
For a boring, unattractive bachelor, he has some of the best girls, Kacie, Lindzey, Emily, Nikki are way out of his league in the real world. Even alot of the girls he let go were way better than he could ever hope for in the real world.
Okay, if you had to choose…which was more excruciatingly heinous and awkward to watch…Jamie’s ride ’em cowgirl make out tutorial or that dental hygienist’s snotty, drippy crying/kissing/love-declaring fest on Jason’s season? You know…the one where I think she actually had mucous infested tissue caked on her lips.
Lincee–can’t wait to hear your take on it all.
Emily’s rapping is actually quite clever…she had some great lines.
maybe Jaime could write an instuctional book on how to kiss for junior high kids everywhere. she could set up booths at all the Thursday night football games under the bleachers.
That was soooooooo painful to watch. can you imagine her facing her co-workers today at her job?
I just read OHCH’s blog, and people are going nuts on him in the comments section! I can’t believe how pissed some of them are over the handling of the Casey situation. I do agree that Casey coming on the show with an ex she may or may not still have feelings for (and, for the record, it really seemed to me like she was bullied into admitting she still cared about him) is a far cry from the Bentley shenanigans that were allowed to take place during Ashley’s season. But I don’t like to see OHCH get yelled at like this! I almost posted in his defense, but thought better of it. This feels like a safer environment to me. 🙂
Also – at the end of OHCH’s blog, note the reference to Bob and Estella’s trip to Belize. “You’d better Belize it!” I actually said that very thing to my roommate last night when I heard they were going to Belize. She (having just started watching a couple of seasons ago) had no idea what I was talking about, but I was rather amused with myself.
Ben is a fool to not pick Emily. She acts like a normal person, albeit a realy gorgeous, witty, and super-intelligent person. Her bit about falling for the chief was hilarious. A girl with a dry sense of humor is much better for the long haul – take note, Ben.
I was appalled at Courtney’s exhibitionism. There is something way off about a young woman who would turn and shake her bare breasts at little boys. If that had happened in the U.S., someone would have called child protective services. I just cannot get over the twistedness of her behavior. She has gone over the edge of “mean girl” and into something more like mental illness. And her complete mean-spirited response to Emily’s apology! That young woman just needs to go back to her modeling career where she poses and doesn’t open her mouth. All I can think about is what on earth her parents must think.
And then Jamie. Jamie, Jamie, Jamie . . . What in heaven’s name were you thinking. You need to get into some sort of program like Witness Protection and disappear now.
1) Kacie and Ben seems to have no chemistry or is that just me? I adore her – but she doesn’t seem right for Ben.
2) Courtney was doing exactly what the people of the tribe asked them to do. She is not a prude. I don’t think that was bad. She knows how to work a guy and use her looks and give attention and get attention. Now, she is a total drunk and a bitch but she definitely knows what she is doing. I mean she always seems to be slurring her words, yes?
3) I actually did feel sorry for Casey S. I think most of us know what is like to love someone who is not right for you but want to not be in love with them. I dont think she was being deceitful and I do believe ABC handled that badly (and OHCH went along with it)- she had no shoes on for goodness sake.
4) I totally fast forwarded the 2 on 1 date. Blonde chick is boring. Blakely is pitiful. Not surprised at all.
5) I have never been so embarassed in my Bachelor viewing years. I was screaming at the TV to stop – I was hiding behind my hands and pillows and blankets. It was excrutiating to watch. How will she show her face at the Tell-All???
Excited for Lincee’s take on it all !
Dresses on the 2:1 date. Thought Blakely’s was beautiful, the other one looked like a bottom heavy blue bird of happiness.
Between the vagina shaped hotel and Jamies “bless her heart” moment this week’s episode was pure gold for your blog! Can NOT wait!!!!
