Bachelor Ben’s Finale Breakdown Plus Other News on the Season

December 14th, 2011 | 48 Comments | Posted in Bachelor Ben Spoilers, The Bachelor 16 - Ben

The one thing I’ve been asked the most in the past week has been, “How are you handling this?” In a word, I’m “frustrated.” Frustrated because all of you that know me and have read my column know I’m a straight shooter. I’m very blunt, I’m very honest, and I don’t hold back with anything. So it’s killing me not to be able to say anything just yet about the allegations levied against me. I’m not very good at keeping my mouth shut about things like this, but I have to for the time being at the request of my lawyer.

As you have undoubtedly heard, the production and distribution companies behind the “Bachelor” have filed a lawsuit against me apparently making some false allegations about claimed damage to the show. I have not yet been served with the suit, but plan to respond to the specific allegations soon. In the meantime, even though it is stated in my Privacy Policy at the top of the page, let me absolutely clear as can be about this: none of the information that I am hereby revealing, or have revealed about the upcoming show, was provided to me by contestants, participants, or anyone else under a confidentiality agreement with the show. In case you might’ve skipped that last sentence or didn’t notice it was bolded, let me repeat that: none of the information that I am hereby revealing, or have revealed about the upcoming show, was provided to me by contestants, participants, or anyone else under a confidentiality agreement with the show. Good. Hope that’s been cleared up. With that said, here is some news to fill you in on regarding the season, including your final four breakdown.

Right after I was given the info about the ending of this season, I was in California visiting family and I figured, “Why not ask my niece and nephew who they thought wins?” They are 7 and 4 respectively, have never watched this show, love to wrestle each other all day long, and are aware that “Reality Steve” is their uncle, but have no idea what that means. So I gave them a list of 15 of Ben’s girls, and hit record. Here were their guesses:

Well, needless to say, my niece and nephew were wrong. Yes, even the powers of his Spiderman gloves couldn’t give him the winner. Since you know the final four are Kacie Boguskie, Courtney Roberston, Nicki Sterling, and Lindzi Cox, it’s safe to say that Emily or Jennifer didn’t win. Nice try, though. Now go clean the back room. Uncle Stephen will be back there in 8 days and wants a clean room to sleep in. Although, I pretty much just sleep in my nephew’s room now when I go back. The futon makes my back ache. So now I just hang over the edge of his full sized bed. Fun times.

In case you haven’t seen it yet, here is the full 3 minute promo that ABC debuted on “Good Morning America” last Tuesday, the day they also revealed the head shots and bios of Ben’s 25 women, AND the day that they filed a lawsuit against me. I’m sure that was COMPLETELY coincidental all of that happened on the same day. Go figure.

Looks like another sh**show of a season. Ben and Courtney going skinny dipping, the return of Shawntel to pretty much embarrass herself for one night, women hating on other women, Courtney having the mouth of a drunken sailor, Ben claiming he’s actually on this show to find love, you know, the same old song and dance every single lead character has said for 23 seasons now.

You know who your final four are:

Kacie Boguskie (Clarksville, TN) Got to show off her baton twirling skills when she had the first date of the season in Sonoma.

Courtney Robertson (Scottsdale, AZ) An international model with pictures all over the internet, has a nationally running commercial for Caesar’s Palace, yet she’s coming on THIS show looking for a date? Uhhh, ok.

Nicky Sterling (Hurst, Tx) The divorced dental hygienist who likes to drink Coors Light and get her party on. Me likey.

Lindzi Cox (Ocala, Fla) The woman who rides up on the horse and receives the first impression rose. Wasn’t that pretty much a guarantee? I mean, no one’s ever not arrived in the limo before, have they? So when the producers talked her into riding a horse in, errrrrrr, when she decided 100% on her own to ride in on a horse, she HAD to have known that’d get her the first impression rose, right?

  1. This is so predictable yet typical. Ben probably realizes a wedding won’t occur but he will date a supermodel and that is something in his wildest dreams he didn’t expect! She seems pretty liberal with taking off her clothes to go into the ocean so he is most likely another notch in her bedpost (YUK!) What happened to men wanting a lady? If he marries her has kids..he shoukd be so proud@@ Look here is Mommy & Daddy. After only a few days Mommy got butt naked and ran onto the ocean! Oh brother! This might get ratings due to not alot to choose from to watch these days and Fleiss should thank his God (who or whatever that is) that RealitySteve exists as that is #1 reason I watch! I think you should countersue him for a cut of his profits!

  2. So I guess that Lindzi is the most obvious early candidate for the next Bachelorette?

    I’m sorry this lawsuit may be happening to RS (I say “may be” because apparently it hasn’t been served yet). I guess this could be a test of free speech rights as well.

  3. The lawsuit is ridiculous. You have boosted the show’s ratings with your site. I only watch because of your site since Melissa/Jason/Molly. Without you & your spoilers, I would not even bother watching the show.ABC should be thanking you & giving you monetary compensation for helping them.

  4. I cannot believe this show is still on the air. The only part worth it is Reality Steve. Ben is so boring and the whole ending sounds pathetic.

  5. This series reminds me of an old joke. A man is dating 3 beautiful women. To decide which he should marry he gives each woman $5000. A week later the first woman has spent the entire amount to make herself as beautiful and desirable as she possibly can for him. The second woman spent her money on lovely, thoughtful gifts for the man. The third woman invested the money and doubled it. She gave him back his $5000 as well as the amount she earned.

    So – who does he marry??? The one with the biggest b**bs!! Duh!!!!

  6. A couple of questions about Ben’s girls. I am from Ocala, Florida but most recently live about 20 minutes from Scottsdale Arizona. So when I saw your most recent column I was excited, because you say 2 of the final 4 are from towns where I have connections. But then I noticed something strange.

    In your most recent column you say Lindzi Cox is from Ocala, FL. But in the “Bachelor Ben’s Girls” page she is listed as Lindsey Cox from Clovis, CA. Courtney Robertson is listed in the most recent column as from Scottsdale, Arizona but in your “Bachelor Ben’s Girls” she is listed as being from Santa Monica, CA. The other two girls are close at least – Kacie is listed as from Clarksville, TN in the recent column but Knoxville in the “Bachelor Ben’s Girls” and Nicky Sterling as from Hurst, TX in the recent column but from North Richland Hills, TX in “Bachelor Ben’s Girls.”

    It seems not a coincidence to say the least that the final two are listed as being from completely different states as you originally had them being from once they made it to the final 2. Pressure from ABC, perhaps?

  7. @GoMiller:

    Hurst and N. Richland Hills, TX are adjacent cities; they border each other.

    For what its worth…..

  8. Well I hope you can release the episode by episode spoilers I like those, eventhough you have given lots of spoilers already.
    Well if that is whom he chose then I do not think I will waste my time watching. To me the final 4 do not look like the best of the bunch anyways and for him to pick Courtney that is a total mistake. I thought Ben was smarter than that and a better guy but I guess not

  9. gomiller: The cities listed on here are where the girls live now, on ABC it is where the were born/Hometowns

  10. Your niece and nephew are really cute.

    And, your honesty and bluntness are greatly appreciated and enjoyed!

  11. “She should probably cut her agent another 5% for probably booking her on this show. …. As for Ben, he gets an 11 week commercial for his winery, he’s got a woman completely out of his league looks-wise to prance around to all the tv shows and magazines once the finale airs, and he got to show his butt on national tv. Seems like he wins all around”

    Ahh nothing like the boy meets girl…err,… the participant’s career/abc corporate win/win relationship. Ain’t love grand?

  12. It seems to me that you are being called out/threatened without using those exact words as they would convey a lawsuit. Your best legal bet (as an attorney) is to let your lawyers speak for you, defend you, and present your case to the best of their abiilites. You’re pretty much at their disposal, but I think Mike Fleiss’s allegations are flame throwers to make you come out of the jungle. If your attorney’s agree, lay low, keep your silence and keep doing what you’re doing as land as you’re not infrigning on any contracts or laws. I am sure you will prevail….

  13. correction: not land, but the word long….tired…actually a real estate attorney….sigh….

  14. Ok, not trying to be mean, Courtney is a beautiful girl, but when she isn’t talking. SHe has a really messed up mouth, it looks like a muppet to me. Could be injections in her lips or something, but she just looks weird when she talks.

  15. Steve- I just want to address your statement, “None of the information that I am hereby revealing, or have revealed about the show, was provided to me by contestants, participants, or anyone else under a confidentiality agreement with the show.”

    Hmm… Steve you better check your past posts. You even say that you get your info from former contestants. You’ve even posted an itinerary and other documents on your site that they have given you….

    We all appreciate your spoiling and that’s why we come to your site. But you’re not being totally honest. You’ve said many times that previous contestants offer up information to you and the confidentiality agreement they sign isn’t actually enforced which is why they give you info.

  16. Anyone watch the Biggest Loser finale? Alison Sweeney took a jab at the Bachelor! Stating that BL has made more matches than the Bachelor! Which is true, but I found it hilarious that she actually brought it up!

  17. Courtney Robertson is the CRAZY one.
    Mark my words.
    Looks like BPD – yes, that is my estimate even before the season airs – - if any of you know BPD well, give it some thought… and please, add your thoughts here…

    She will make Jake, the other BPD from The Bach, look like a calm sensitive sweetie by comparison.

    Poor Ben, he has already gone down the rabbit hole, and he has a wild ride in front of him. But it is very likely that they will be split before the season starts, or ends.
    He will be a bitter distrusting man in her wake. Ahhhh…. sorry for the downer predictions, but at least RS prepared you for it, from his perspective, anyway.

  18. Ewww! Brady, you’re right… Courtney’s mouth is super gross when she talks! Like she is chewing mush or something! There’s a strange quality about her that comes through even just that short promo… Lisa could definitely be right about the BPD (or NPD for that matter, which is what I think Jake probably has/d). Either way, her ego seems way out of control

  19. First of all, I don’t see the appeal of Ben. He is not sexy or handsome. He has no class. I don’t care if he has a winery. That does not mean he has class. If you had the (dis)pleasure of watching the “Cream Dream” video that Reality Steve posted, as I did, you got to watch him squirting lotion as if he was cumming all over the place throughout an entire “music” video that he created with his friend. It was a disgusting turn-off and not in all keeping with the kind of man that the show originally was trying to attract. GO FIGURE he picks a disgusting potty mouth who strips down right in front of everyone right off the bat and has NO class too. (By the way IMHO she is not near as attractive as some of the other women on here either). It’s obvious that these two are a JOKE.

  20. What a complete dbag Ben is, gross, ugly thinks he’s the big man on campus. On an ego trip, for sure. Will not spend my time watching this fake player trying to make us beleive he’s sincere. Stormhorse, naked skinny dipping = PLAYER!

  21. OSherrie – that’s funny!

    Jeezmaneez you guys though – so what if he picks someone who he has little chance of making last long-term; is that why ya’ll are really watching? Really?

    PS – if everyone who has ever skinny-dipped is a “slut”, then I’m a proud one, and so are a LOT of other people!!!

  22. I would like to say that Mike Fleiss is a punk a** snake. Oh poor him, somebody gave away the ending of his show. He ought to be glad, his stinken show is so boring and predictable, what a joke. I only read RS to find out what is up, because I barely watch his show, I channel surf when it is on. I am not at all interested in watching Ben, so I am glad RS gave away the ending. Also, people from his show wouldn’t be talking if they weren’t fed up with him, low morale I’m sure. I am glad we have RS to read. Keep up the good work.

  23. Just like others have said but I’m saying again in hopes that more people that say it it will give you some support either personally or even legally BUT for this season particularly (because I find Ben very boring) I plan on watching The Bachelor because the next day I get to Laugh Out Loud when I read your blog. Without you, I wouldn’t watch it plain and simple. . . .

  24. Okay stupid Bachelor people… sue RS…. I really hope he wins… but say he doesn’t…. FORT or another site will just come back and spoil the seasons again. What is happening now a days where free speech doesn’t really exists?!!

  25. AND… I only watch the Bachelor BECAUSE Of spoilers. It is a boring show without them. Flies… You have MANY MANY Viewers just like me.

  26. Excuse me utahmomof1, what right do you have to call Bachelor “people” stupid? And who the heck is “flies”?? Get a grip, go away, and go do your business on FORT. They love your type there, we certainly don’t need you here. Get a grip on your grammar at the same time..geesh!

  27. If I am anything in their demographics I’d say your spoiler posts increase viewing. I don’t like the show anymore for many of the reasons you post here, but I LOVE to watch it and follow your predictions just for fun. So, if you go away, no more bachelor/bachelorette for me!

  28. Well, I for one would not watch the show if it wasn’t for you Steve, so please don’t stop what your doing. Secondly, I went to the ABC site to read about the new show and there was a link there for this site! How interesting!!! ABC knows that your site brings more viewers Steve, and the law suit is a farce just for more publicity!! They need you Steve to get any ratings for this show and I need you for my weekly laugh and to know at least there is one other sane( okay semi sane) person out there!!! Thanks Steve and keep up the good work!

  29. Ben’s way of speaking and his mannerism’s remind me so much of Tim from HBO’s ‘The Life and Times of Tim’ – I noticed that Ben doesn’t seem to have much depth.

  30. Poor, poor Ben. He opens his zipper and his brains fall out. What a shame…..lust wins again.

  31. Really, I feel like throwing up!! He picked that crazy person! I do not even feel like watching the show! She is off her rocker!

  32. Sorry I spelled Lindzi’s name incorrectly, I meant to say why does it say Lindzi Cox is from FL & CA or your bio of her when the TV says she is from Bellevue, WA?

  33. Courtney is just plain mean. Really, how shallow can one girl be? He appears to be smart. Guess not.

  34. I just cant wait to watch the rest of the season in order to see what Courtney does in order to win Ben over. I also want to see what happens with Kasey B. and Ben for him not to pick her. Actually I am happy Kasey wasn’t picked because that means there is a good chance she will be the next bachelorette and end up with someone better.

    Ben was on Ellen today and she pretty much told him that she hopes he didnt pick Courtney because she’s crazy. lol

  35. Not big on reality shows but the Bachelor got me hooked. But the more I watched it the more I realized it is a well scripted soap opera. I believe the girls shed real tears but it is not because they love Ben but because they are going to miss out on TV time, great trips and good food and drink. So realizing that what I am watching is not real…….I am just going to enjoy the drama.

  36. Hi there! I love the Bachelor! Gives me an hour to go into a “Love bubble”! I am wondering if anyone knows who sings a certain song that was played on the bachelor this past Monday? It was played I think after one of the contestants was sent home! I really like that song, but don’t know who made it! Any tips???

  37. i can’t wait till all the girls get in a room to talk before the final episode. Courtney is so fake! and Ben is so blind. I’m sure the skinny dipping was more than just that.

  38. I have watched every Bachelor since season 1. I have never been so angry at how ugly one woman could be! Courtney deserves to be kicked to the curb then kicked right in her evil little mouth! Bunch of crap! I hate this season!

  39. Did you notice how strange Courtney’s parents were? I think they were pretending she was normal and hoping some idiot would take her off their hands. How about the way she wagged her finger at them for acting shocked about the skinny dipping and pointing out that they skinny dip in their pool? Does Courtney watch her parents skinny dip? Hmmmm. The pursing and twisting lips thing she does is really creepy too. Ben has to be a weirdo – he even admitted that’s what he likes about Courtney – that she’s weird. I also noticed the way Ben licks his lips before kissing anyone. That would be enough for me to say “No thanks”! I think Ben and Courtney and her family are all too weird!
