Bachelor Ben Recap: Episode 7
We know the season is pretty abysmal when the most interesting thing that happens is saved for the quirky 30-second sound off at the end of the show. Courtney casually picking up a tarantula as if it were a sweet cuddly kitten is proof that her insides are scrambled or she’s an ABC plant. Give me an entire date filled with this freakishness and call me entertained.
What’s really sad is that this episode had both shark diving and lobster grabbing. And I was still bored. Bless all of their hearts.
As I take the time to figure out what in the world I’m going to write about, please check out “Lessons Learned from Week Seven” over at the Huffington Post by clicking HERE. The recap will be up later this afternoon…fingers crossed that it’s longer than two paragraphs.
I wonder if Ben and Lindzi knew that the Blue Hole was shark infested? Yikes!
I think Courtney does really like Ben…but she also is very selfish (me me me) which probably plays a part in why she is single…
Has anyone noticed the Courtney keeps wearing that strapless maxi dress? Either she has 90 of them or she’s wearing it all.the.time.
@Michele L — I’m not sure Courteny likes anyone but herself, but for Ben’s sake I hope you’re right so he doesn’t feel like a complete idiot now.
My husband and I had difficulty focusing on Nikki’s words b/c the only part of her face that moves is her lower jaw . Not sure if that is somehow related to her position as a dental hygenist, but very disconcerting. Did anyone else notice this?
Shocked and sad to see Emily go but she is better off. Can’t believe she called him a piece of cheesecake! More like just cheese.
It seems that Ben got a trim. Is it just me? His frizziness seemed closer to his head this week.
Courtney has been on reality tv before with another guy–she is not on here for the right reasons. Plus, no offense, but she’s a model…what does she see in Ben? She’s dated much more attractive men.
I hope he doesn’t choose Kacie B or Nikki. Both are so sweet and normal–it just seems to blah for Ben. They deserve someone much less mid-section driven. He’s thinking with his other head and it’s making for a frustrated viewer, however, I think it would be much too disappointing to see either of the other girls hurting over him.
I think Ben is nice. But that’s about all. He doesn’t seem interesting, attractive, or to even have good sense. The girls that keep saying, “I’ll leave if he chooses Courtney,” need to leave. (Not sure if anyone is saying that anymore but still…)
And Lindzi has got to stop with that head cock. Why does she keep forcing herself to look through the tops of her eyes while dropping her chin like that? It’s not sweet, cute, or sexy. She’s cute and sweet, she doesn’t need to cock her head down every time she looks at Ben.
All I can say about last night is why didn’t anyone tell Kacie B how ridiculous that red/fuscia flower looked on the side of her head? The middle part of the flower sticking out looked like an erection, for lack of a better word!
“Sincethebeginning,” you are so right!
“And Lindzi has got to stop with that head cock. Why does she keep forcing herself to look through the tops of her eyes while dropping her chin like that? It’s not sweet, cute, or sexy. She’s cute and sweet, she doesn’t need to cock her head down every time she looks at Ben.”
She’s also going to have some sort of degenerative neck condition in a few years if she doesn’t start holding her head up.
She’s adorable, but that puppy dog look has to go…
What the crap?!!!!!!!!! Courtney still has him wrapped around his oblivious little finger? It is obvious that she is not like by the other girls, nor does anyone watching the show like her and this is one thing Ben says he is worried about but he can’t see past it. She is really good at seducing guys, but that is about all.
since the beginning–the head down/chin tuck thing has bugged me from the beginning! I posted about it last week. And the opening her mouth SO wide to laugh. Ugh! I am not feeling the Lindzi love like everyone else!
I’ve officially given up on the season. I was so bothered by Ben telling Emily a couple of episodes to “tred lightly” that I just can’t stand watching him anymore. I’ve always found these recaps way more entertaining.
Lincee has a point–without Cray Cray Courtney, we would all be watching the Voice or something. She just wants to win. If she does, the resulting ‘relationship’ will last about 3 minutes After the Final Rose and we won’t have to hear from either one of them again. Which is too bad, because I kind of liked BenGroban. I’m sure he’s smacking himself in the forehead about now.
This season might be the last for me. Ben is so boring and the endless asides with Courtney are slightly unsettleing, not entertaining at all. The only fun part is reading your blog, Lincee.
Lindzi is so frickin’ annoying! Did not like her from day one.
I love Kacie B so I hope Ben does not pick her.
I just had to say – I can’t believe you didn’t mention Courtney’s new favourite word “Snap!” Seriously who talks like that??! She drives me crazy! Maybe you’ll mention it in your full report, looking forward to it!
I love your blog and I think it’s the main reason why I watch week after week – I’m always thinking about all the things you’ll be able to write about. This season is especially boring but you’re doing a great job keeping us entertained!
Did anyone notice Kacie B. telling Ben to “tread lightly?” LOVED IT.
