Bachelor Ben Full Season Spoilers

The 18 women remaining after the first episode are:

Jamie Otis
Monica Spannbauer
Kacie Boguskie
Lindzi Cox
Emily O’Brien
Blakeley Shea
Jenna Burke
Nicki Sterling
Shawn Reynolds
Erika Uhlig
Samantha Leavy
Jaclyn Swartz
Casey Shteamer
Rachel Truehart
Courtney Robertson
Elyse Myers

Episode 2: Sonoma, CA (18 to 16)

1-on-1: Kacie Boguskie. They watch home movies of each other and also go shopping in town where she buys a baton and shows off her baton twirling skills. She was a majorette at the University of Tennessee, so I guess she’s excellent in handling long, hard poles. Too easy.

Group Date: 12 of the women audition for a play put on by children. This was documented in real time back in September when this piece from the Sonoma News came out entitled “The Bachelor Invades Sonoma”. Still awesome to this day and they deserve an Emmy.

1-on-1: Courtney Robertson. They go on a picnic, Ben’s dog Scotch makes an appearance, and Ben develops a boner for Courtney that lasts all season.

Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Jenna Burke and Shawn Reynolds.

Episode 3: San Francisco, CA (16 to 13)

While in San Fransisco before any of the dates start, Ben meets up with his sister Julia at the Grove on Chestnut street and they ride around on a vespa. When I was first given this picture back on Sept. 27th, I was told this was a 1-on-1 date with one of the girls who hadn’t been identified yet. It wasn’t. It’s Ben and his sister Julia. Hey, if his dog gets to make an appearance the previous episode, surely they’d give his sister some run. Here was the pic:

1-on-1: Emily O’Brien. They scale the Bay Bridge and see fireworks. Also during this date, there is a telescope conveniently placed on the balcony at the Fairmont hotel where the rest of the women are staying, and the women can see Ben & Emily kissing from their view.

Group Date: Closed down one of the streets in San Francisco, brought in fake snow and 11 of the girls went skiing. Here are some pictures that were posted back when it happened:

1-on-1: Lindzi Cox. Took a trolley around town, went to a “Speak Easy” at a place called “Bourbon and Branch”, then headed to a private concert at City Hall put on by Matt Nathanson.

This will be the episode most talk about in the early part of the season for all the sh** that goes down.

-After the group skiing date, they all got dressed and had an after party at the Tonga Room. It was during this time that Brittney, the woman whose grandmother introduced her, voluntarily leaves the show.

-It was also established in San Francisco that contestant Samantha Leavy had fallen for producer Bennett Graebner. Nothing physical ever happened between the two, but Samantha told producers she didn’t want to be there anymore because she had feelings for someone else, somehow they convinced her to stay another episode, and that was that. I am not sure if this storyline will ever make air because Bennett is married with kids, but hey, it sure made for some good dirt. So whatever BS reason they show for Samantha leaving in Utah, just know it’s because of that.

-At the cocktail party before the rose ceremony at the Farimont hotel is where Shawntel Newton, the mortician during Brad’s season, comes back to “enter” the game. The details behind her appearance were given to you back on Oct. 7th. Here’s what I wrote:

-Shawntel first appears on the show at the cocktail party on the night of the San Francisco rose ceremony, which was last Friday night.

-Her reasoning for being on the show? Well, she wanted to date Ben. If you go back to her Twitter account during Ashley’s season, Shawntel made it known to the whole world she had a crush on Ben. I’m guessing this is where they got the idea to bring her on.

-Shawntel shows up at the Fairmont hotel during the cocktail party and talks to Ben. Essentially tells him she thinks there could be something between them, they live close to each other, and she’d like the chance to date him, but, she will leave it up to him by giving him a chance to think about it and decide at the rose ceremony if he wants to give her a rose.

-Well, that pretty much backfired since Ben does not give her a rose at the rose ceremony and she’s sent home.

What’s funny in all this is I’m guessing Shawntel was pretty confident Ben would want to keep her around, or else why would she agree to do it? And hell, I’m sure the producers thought he’d keep her around. I’ve heard from numerous sources that Ben and Shawntel had definitely had communication before last Friday night in terms of speaking with each other. I don’t think they’d ever met up, or gone out on a date, but I know they had texted, emailed, and tweeted each other before. So naturally, she probably thought she had a chance. I guess Ben didn’t since he sent her packing a few hours after she arrives. Sucks for her.

-Erika Uhlig faints during the rose ceremony while Ben is passing out the roses.

Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Erika Uhlig and Jaclyn Swartz. Brittney has already eliminated herself during the after party of the group date and Shawntel never receives a rose from him after showing up.

    No 2 on 1 dates this season?!?

    This site had nearly everything laid out since the end of October. They are much more fun to read.

    @Tiffany_Michelle, in my opinion, it is very hard to find “good” information in that “bachandbachettefans” forum because you have to wade through pages upon pages of big, big graphics, smileys and tons of mindless chitter chatter among the members. Very annoying. Also hard to find what category or topic has the info you are looking for. That site drive me crazy.

    So if “bachandbachette” fans forum had the info before Steve, is that where he is getting it?

    Also, why is abc/fleiss going after Steve if bachandbachette fans has the dirt? Or are they going after the bachandbachettefans forum next?

    On another note, am I the only one who does not find Courtney Robertson all that attractive? Either she had a bad lip job and/or she had a “hair lip” at one time. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder…just sayin’…

    Hey Steve,

    If they are asking you to settle and not do spoilers anymore, don’t settle for less than $5 million. It’s a ridiculous franchise. Actually, maybe go for 10?

    Suck it for what it’s worth, because we all know they suck.


  5. kline

    January 2, 2012 at 10:15 PM

    If I was Ben I would have chosen Courtney Robertson also, even it is just lust and not a bit of love it will be well worth it.

    Except maybe for the first season this show is never about love. It is all about ppl wanting to get TV time and publicity.

    Don’t be jealous. It makes you look bad lol.

    Ben’s voice, choice of words, and mannerisms are nearly identical to Tim’s from HBO’s ‘The Life and Times of Tim’ – it’s an animated comedy like family guy, but not nearly as dumb, yet much funnier. Ben could fill in for the voice of Tim – he’s the real deal. His personality is even the same as Tim’s – seriously, it’s bizarre. I can’t watch the show w/o hearing Tim whenever Ben speaks.

    Ben = the most awkward Bachelor to date. Also, the most unattractive Bachelor to date. Give him a broad brimmed hat, a pitchfork and a horse and buggy and he’d be a little amish boy.

    The hair…oh my that hair…

    My daughter went to high school with Jenna – in Cincinnati, Ohio. It was a privatem, catholic school and I’m sure they are very proud of her (NOT!!!). She was a party girl then and doesn’t seem to have changed much. Her classmates were posting none to nice things about her last night. Guess they weren’t a fan of her either. And I agree about Ben – he is not attractive in the least. I can’t believe they let him go on air with that hair….has he even looked in the mirror lately???

    Firstly, I doubt RS would consider it a win win to not be spoiling anymore. I think he’s mentioned enough the income he gets off of the site and how that would be unlikely.

    Secondly, I’m slightly disappointed we don’t have date by date spoilers but oh well. Based on last nights episode, I was rooting for Kacie but thought he initially had chemistry with a redhead who got out of the limo. In reality, it’s true it’s highly unlikely whoever is picked will make it down the aisle so I guess it’s better if it wasn’t her AND Ben might as well have fun with a model.

    Going by her description( foul mouthed, etc) she seems perfectly suitable for a friend with benefits or similar type situation for Ben. Some contestants you get the idea COULD be looking for love, with Ben it’s clearly just for show. I think we’ll soon see these shows clearly and more obviously morphing into a different version of Bachelor Pad.

    Hope the lawsuit goes away.

    This makes me sick. I was professional model and I actually know Courtney a little. She is not a very nice person, awful actually. She wore white to a friend of mine’s wedding because she wasn’t asked to be in the bridal party. She is truly a catty b**ch. Ben seems so nice, I hope you are wrong reality steve, but she does have a way with men, poor Ben!

  14. traversingthetwincities

    January 3, 2012 at 10:09 AM

    Safe to say after last night’s edit and the fact that she’s F2, Lindzi Cox is your next Bachelorette? I could see it going to Kacie too, especially if she is the person who is the contrast to the season villain Courtney, like the Ali/Vienna dynamic in Jake’s season.

    Holly’s last name is Johnson. She’s from 15 minutes from my hometown. I don’t know her personally but some of my Facebook friends were saying “I didn’t know Holly Johnson was gonna be on here!” Several people I know were her sorority sisters at UK.

    Hey Steve, thanks for this great site. It’s very entertaining and prevents me from wasting a lot of my time. I always watch the first episode, pick my winners, losers and wackos then read your reviews and see how accurate my first impressions are….now, if only I could work in a drinking game this would make a great girls’ night out!! (and don’t anyone suggest having a drink everytime someone cries….I’d have alcohol poisoning).
    As soon as I read through your spoilers Steve, I will decide which episodes are worth watching. Keep up the great job.

    I guessed who Ben picked last night. I checked in to make sure I didn’t have to watch the whole season. Sad he dumps Emily. She seems to be the only one with a brain, personality and she’s cute. But, like you said, he’s thinking with his head.

  18. madame2fly

    January 3, 2012 at 5:53 PM

    Honestly, reading this blog is more entertaining than watching the show. Sometimes, I have to watch the show just so I can read the blog. The producers should be paying you for making the show more entertaining, not sueing you. What A-holes.

    You really have a way of calling out people when they have “eccentric” personality quirks. You really nail it. Thanks for the laughs, really enjoy this blog!!!

    and the new site looks great! Thanks again, S

    Ugh! I am gonna be sick. I am so disgusted with this farce anymore. I had the show on my DVR to record but needless to say, it has been deleted.

  20. Allison

    January 4, 2012 at 6:47 PM

    I agree with seriouslyreally – How did the producers let Ben go on with that hideous hair? Didn’t care for him on Ashley’s season and was floored when they made him “The Bachelor.” I would have preferred having Brad Womack coming back for a 3rd try! Ben is NOT attractive in MY eyes but perhaps in someone else’s. As for Jenna- How embarrassing! One second she was supposedly crying her eyes out and then Ben walks up and she is dry as her personality. And what was she trying to say to him? She made no sense! Last but not least – can someone tell me how many times she said the word “model” when talking to Ben?!?! Perhaps she has been modeling facial wax!

    Ben, another ABC whore for the record books. You could see the red flames in Chris Harrison’s eyes and the devil horns peeking out as he claimed another soul for his seedy production. Love? Pfft! Do it for the ratings, Ben! Think of the winery! I love the preview and how Ben gets his skank on with all the “lovely” ladies. I really wished grandma had stayed. I hope Brittany’s reason for leaving is she’s not that kind of girl. I bet Chris Harrison humped the Neilsen box screaming, “Lesbians!!!!”

    We like you RS but ya gotta stop ruining the show!!! Just reign it in a bit and report on the non-spoilers. We are big fans…would love to hear what people think. We created a poll…

  24. fantasysweet

    January 4, 2012 at 10:40 PM

    And i agree the hair!!! I mean I thought for sure he’d show up w/ a hot buzz and be super sexy, but he looks dopey! Although they clearly did hook him up w/ the bachelor trainer. I am super curious about what is in the contracts w/ these people. If you get ahold of a contract that would be an amazing post!

  25. fantasysweet

    January 4, 2012 at 10:43 PM

    we did a breakdown of the ladies….seriously sat down w/ a projector on NYE projecting EACH lady onto the wall for a full critique. Ha!!! This show is a very unhealthy obsession, but ridiculously fun!

  26. itssimple

    January 5, 2012 at 11:23 PM

    They should change the name of the show from “The Bachelor” to “This guy who got dumped and now is available”. Clearly on the show for one reason… Courtney wtf. Jessica Simpson called and wants her expressions back. Beauty is powerful, powerful enough even to land a luke warm stud-ish and get made fun of for a few months. I’m starting to hope the Mayans are right!!

    It’s really getting old, isn’t it?

    January 10, 2012 at 7:32 AM

    Thank you for this play by play. I was going to watch this season as I liked Ben but when you said he chose Courtney when you posted that weeks back. I decided to not waste time so I am glad you posted the episode spoilers so now I really dont have to watch
    I like how Ben decided he did not want to date JLH mainly due to the fact that he did not want to date a celeb (as he said in multiple interviews) but yet he chose the girl that is a model and has dated a celeb….interesting I really do not see this working…Oh Ben you made a BAD choice but I guess if a chick is willing to get naked without really knowing him then he was a goner at that point, as I believe that is when he decided she won

  30. mellertime

    January 16, 2012 at 6:02 PM

    Love the site!! Keep up the spoilers. Makes it more fun to watch the show.

    January 16, 2012 at 10:10 PM

    For those who don’t want to read spoilers……instead of conducting polls, how about this?……if you don’t want to read the spoilers…..don’t read them. Seems simple enough.

  32. tacogirl

    January 23, 2012 at 5:00 PM

    WOW. I cannot believe that you would even think about giving away the end. Dumb. It’s good to have this for recapping episodes and talking about them,but when you ruin the end for everyone.its annoying and irritating. THANKS A LOT.

  33. tacogirl

    January 23, 2012 at 7:10 PM

    and p.s. i didnt look up “spoilers” i heard people talking about it. so you dont always have to look for it to find out these things. but this is ridiculous !! why would you post this all over the internet and piss off everyone. And even if it wasn’t your idea to post the ending,why would the producers contact you and tell you to say this stuff when everybody hates courtney and a lot of people are going to stop watching it. dont whine and complain about getting a law suit, you kinda threw yourself under the bus. obviously if you know there’s gonna be problems if you post this when its pretty much illegal….I dont mind this guy,i just wish he wouldn’t spoil the ending like that…not fair to people who actually wanna watch the show and not know what happends at the end…

  34. locondcoco

    January 27, 2012 at 8:42 AM

    wow, tacogirl. who’s holding the gun to your head to read this site? and if you’re hearing it from your friends, well then blame your friends for talking about it in front of you if you dont want to know. You claim to not want to know the spoilers, yet you’re here in the SPOILERS section of the site, commenting. i think the only thing dumb and ridiculous is YOU.

  35. sherry123

    January 30, 2012 at 5:53 PM

    Wow, Courtney! Could you be any cheaper? Maybe if you were beautiful. I don’t get it. No depth, no looks. What?

  36. autismmom04

    January 30, 2012 at 8:36 PM

    I’ve honestly never liked Ben. Not even last season when he was with Ashley. I was glad she didn’t pick him. I don’t think he’s good looking at all and he has such a booring personality. And after seeing how he takes to Courtney, he’s lost my respect too. Big thumbs DOWN!

  37. mikewarriorz

    February 4, 2012 at 2:18 AM

    First of all, Ben is not a natural with women where he knows above average knowledge on how a woman thinks. I can remember him trying to recruit people for that boating event during Ashley’s season. He couldn’t connect with one person or where to look which told me he wasn’t a natural. But he is honest, and a good man which is why many of the women were full of jealously. Here is the thing when the majority of women come up to you and another revisit you, to warn you about a particular person, they are not all wrong! Ben was blinded by his puppy love similar to that of Jake and like so many guys who picks the bad girl that aggressively goes after them. I am curious, what are Ben’s thoughts about Courtney while watching the show? If he’s in denial, he will say she never meant half that stuff she said and she was different with him. True, she was different with him but if he was more of a natural with women he should have seen the signs. I wish him well and I think women still have a chance for Ben if it’s Courtney which I would give 6 months to a year before that is over…lol

    I started watching the Bachelor/Bachelorette just a couple of seasons ago. I am so glad I found this site to read the spoilers, I never knew it existed until right before Ben’s season started…I just happen to stumble on it thru twitter.
    To tell you the truth, I was so glad that Ashley picked J.P on her season and I bet she is too after watching Ben as the Bachelor. Ben really disrespected the other women when he skinny dipped with Courtney. I understand if he has feelings for her…I get that..but to go as far as doing that with Courtney while the others are thinking they have a shot at love also. Well…let’s just say that if they knew they would have high-tailed it out the door. So you can bet money they didn’t know anything about it until it aired.

    February 5, 2012 at 6:13 PM

    Thanks for saving me time. I have watched all of both-gendered series but after Jake chose V, I swore if I found out that the Bachelor/ette ever chose the most disliked person in the house again, I wasn’t finishing that season. Until they decide not to select contestants that have an obvious career or business to promote, this scenario will just keep repeating itself and I can just not even start a series. If people like me just wanted to watch a bunch of people behaving badly we could watch Jersey Shores and The Housewives of…I’m just saying’…..

    February 13, 2012 at 9:01 PM

    Considering that there has not been even one successful marriage to arise from this show, it makes one wonder? What’s the point? Self promotion, 15 minutes of fame and the Almighty dollar seem to be the only things of true importance when all is said and done? Love, romance etc etc etc are about as real as the relationships on the daily soaps! If some poor genuine soul naively believes that they will find their true love on this show, they are mistaken and should be looking elsewhere for that cause that’s not what this show is about! What this show is about is ratings and dollars! Period!

  41. shadmin

    February 13, 2012 at 9:10 PM

    @tacogirl Who the hell forced you onto this website? It’s obvious that this site has spoilers and so it’s disingenuous of you to criticize this site or the material on it! I came to this site to specifically find out if Ben was idiotic enough to pick Courtney which just confirmed my theory that this whole show is just that, a show! It’s just like a soap opera, even if it’s called reality.

  42. NicoleAZ

    February 13, 2012 at 9:16 PM

    Ben is an idiot….after all the warnings he still chooses her? It’s his own fault! I guess he liked seeing her breasts or felt guilty because had gone all the way…what a dork!!

  43. hansen6262

    February 14, 2012 at 12:02 PM

    Aw man! I wanted Kacie B, but really? if he chose that awful Courney floozie, he deserves what he’s getting. I hope Kacie gets to be the next bachelorette!

  44. wenchy

    February 21, 2012 at 8:57 PM

    hahahahaha, I am loving the whole Ben & Courtney
    sexcapades. The other women are lucky that they won’t be picked by Ben the loser, boring, moronic, stoic, bad haired, ugly bachelor. I mean really, talk about him being a pussy whipped little amish boy…..all it took was Courtney playing with his pee pee in the water and the other women were toast.
