Ben’s Final Four & Which Chick Liked the Other Women

December 5th, 2011 | 20 Comments | Posted in Bachelor Ben Spoilers, The Bachelor 16 - Ben

I apologize it’s been over a week since the last posting. I did say back on Nov. 22nd that I was going to post the ending after Thanksgiving. Well, I changed my mind and I’m gonna do things differently this season. Today I’ll be revealing the final four, along with some fill-in-the-blanks from ABC’s press release yesterday, then, sometime in the near future (see, I’m not committing myself to a specific date since apparently that gets peoples panties in a bunch when I do then don’t produce) I’m going to reveal the ending. Then lastly, sometime before the season begins Jan. 2nd, I hope to have your episode-by-episode spoilers. Still missing some pieces here and there, but hope to have them by the time the season begins. Kinda weird. First time I’ve ever had the ending before I had everything else completed.

The show completed filming in Switzerland on Wednesday, November 16th. That Saturday the 19th is when I was given the info of what all went down in Switzerland. Nothings changed since then. However, for reasons that are personal and I’d rather not get into, I’ve decided to wait a bit to release it. Someone emailed me yesterday and asked if it’s because I’m purposely teasing readers so they’ll come to my site every day checking to see for a new update, which increases my page views, and gives me more money. I immediately responded to that person and told them they have no idea what they’re talking about. That’s not how the income to my site works. Not even close. Not to mention, this is the “offseason”. My income in the “offseason” is probably 1/20th of what it’ll be come Jan. 2nd when the season begins. As I told this person, I could tease something every single day to get people to check the site every single day, produce nothing, and it wouldn’t change my revenue stream. The traffic is so miniscule right now compared to when the show is on that nothing I do matters. I’m not teasing anyone for readers. Don’t need to. I know they’ll be there come January. When I’m gonna post, I tweet when I’m gonna post. When have I ever posted a column out of the blue without teasing it on Twitter and/or Facebook first? I don’t think that’s ever happened.

My readers are loyal readers. I know that. I’ve seen the numbers over the years. I also know that those loyal readers don’t start coming in droves until the season begins, even though I’ve been spoiling Ben’s season for the last 2 ½ months. Sure, people are interested and I’ve had traffic since “Bachelor Pad” ended, but I’ll be honest, it’s pretty much the crazy, fanatical ones that are checking during the “offseason.” I’d say 95% of this show’s audience doesn’t care about what’s going on during filming, doesn’t read internet sites, and generally has no idea when the season even begins. Until they start seeing commercials for it is when they start caring. If they wanna check the site in the offseason, fine. If they don’t, that’s fine too. The majority of this site’s income is made while the show is airing. Has been ever since the advertising started on this site, so, suggesting that I purposely tease people so they’ll come to my site everyday, thus increasing my revenue, is just not true at all. Sorry, but that’s not how the ads on this site work. I’m gonna make what I’m gonna make in the “offseason”, and nothings gonna change that. Now, on to more important matters.

Ben’s hometown dates were filmed between Oct. 24th and Oct. 31st. These were the four women this season who received hometown dates. I was informed of who these four were right after Halloween. Two I’ve already identified, and two that I hadn’t. Sometimes there is a method to my madness. Of course I purposely didn’t reveal who two of them were so at least you had something new today to surprise you. The two I’d already identified were:
___________________________________________________________

Kacie Boguskie: 24, Knoxville, Tennessee, works at Genera Energy LLC, former majorette at the University of Tennessee where she twirled the baton at the football games. In her majorette picture, she’s in the top row, 3rd from the right (click on the picture to make it bigger).


___________________________________________________________

Courtney Robertson: Santa Monica, CA, professional model, was on the cover Fitness Magazine in April 2011. The You Tube video is of her in a Caesar’s Palace commercial.

The two that I hadn’t identified yet are:

Lindsey Cox: 27, Clovis, Ca, the girl circled in the group picture from Puerto Rico, graduated Fresno St. University majoring in public relations, worked at Savvy Salon in Clovis, CA, and is the girl that rides in on the horse on the first night.


___________________________________________________________

Nicki Sterling: 26, North Richland Hills, Tx, dental hygienist, graduated Texas A&M in 2007, divorced within the last year (maiden name Nicki Felix). The first pic of her is on page 5 of the school newsletter at Blinn College in Texas where she’s a dental student and some of them got to visit the state capital. The rest of these pics? Well, looks like Nicki thoroughly enjoys getting her party on. I think I’m in love. I mean, Nicki drinks Coors Light. I drink Coors Light. Nicki likes dancing on bars. And hey, whaddya’ know, I enjoy watching women dance on bars. Match made in heaven.

  1. Well based on the photos and the little right up you have on each that just says age, where they are from and what they do I like Courtney and Lindsay and they are Cali girls and we all know that Ben has his winery in Sonoma so he would need the girl he picks to move to his home there.

  2. Thanks Steve. Love it. I guess Ben was looking more for his lady stormhorse to drink & party? Figures. oh my, all the old biddies will be upset that their Saint Ben is not the choir boy with the halo that their delustional minds pictured. It’s so obvious this guy is a player. Cannot wait, it’s all about the wine and good times, baby!!! I would not be shocked if the biggest party girl is his F1, Nikkie, two of a kind. Once they sober up, will it be love. lmao

  3. I come to your site when you tease it. Sheesh… got lots of better things to do! Keep up the spoilin’ Steve!

  4. Thats crazy, I went to high school with Kacie, didnt know she was going to be on the show…she actually grew up in Clarksville, TN.

  5. Kacie seems like a sweet girl and the real deal. I hope she escaped from the frat boy Ben. He won’t last with anyone, he’s not interested in settling down at this point in his life. That’s a fact.

  6. I’m sorry but I have to…….

    Caitlyn do you KNOW Kacie? Otherwise it seems very premature based on a few pictures and maybe an article here or their to be proclaiming her a sweet girl.

    I agree the season should be pretty boring but I’ll likely watch anyhow. Ben ,more than any of the bachelors before him, REALLY does not give off the “I’m looking for marriage” vibe. Maybe it’s only because his face makes him look like he’s 15 or something:P

  7. I posted a comment on November 22 with the names of the final four. Looks like I beat RS to the punch.

  8. Who is it w/ a teeth fetish on this show? Another “dentist.”
    And Ben.. which one was he again? Another mop head with a vineyard? I fall into loyal reader category– as well as senile. Used to be ZoeMonster here but who knows what pw/email I used. That said, I’ll venture I have been reading you since 2008? Followed you on Twitter since u first set up acct. You don’t follow back tho (Zoemonster2) which is too bad cuz (toot toot) I have x-cellent photos and my husb’s column links. Plus the occasional tweet. Oh. That’s. Right. I’m not young and sexy. But I haven’t shriveled (yet) BTW, thx for “fixing” yr site. I had to UNbook mark it about 6 months ago.. kept getting frozen on the Mac. And the Mac is HIV free. But looks clean and user friendly now. Dates and everything. You’ve come a long way, Baby (Virginia Slim Cig Ad circa too long ago for you to recall) And these are my jumbled thoughts. Ha. Zoemonster

  9. oh.. silly me.. of *course* their names end w/ long E. Long E indicates White. Short A does not. Zoemonster.

  10. Im trying not to see the spoilers. Trying to see what happens in the 1st episode. Only 3 weeks til the landing gears come down from the limos!!!!

  11. I went to college with Nicki Felix. We weren’t super close, and I haven’t talked to her since graduation, but we were both part of a small group of people that helped to start a student organization at A&M. Sure, she loves to party, what college girl doesn’t, but those photos don’t represent who she is. Nicki is a really smart girl, really focused, cares a lot about other people, incredibly kind and warm, and of course extremely beautiful. In college she gave a lot of her time to helping other people, and I know a lot of her friends and they are all great people as well. Not at all the kind of party animals those photos would make her out to be. She’s a great person and Ben would be extremely lucky to have her! I will have my fingers crossed for her!

  12. just reading the latest Entertainment Weekly which has an article by Chris Harrison on the “five most compelling bachelorettes” – - – 3 of his 5 are listed as part of your final 4. Cool, huh?
