The Bachelor 16 - Ben

The Bachelor Ben Recap Including Where Was Lindzi This Weekend, Ben & Courtney’s Song For the Season & the ATFR Taping Date

First off, Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. You know what I’ll be doing tonight? Nothing. My guess is I’ll be eating Subway around 7:00, then catching up on some shows after that. Oh, and I’ll be calling in to the Guinness Book of World Records and seeing if my streak of consecutive Valentine’s Days without a date is still intact. It’s not that I haven’t had any dates in a while, I just never seem to be with anyone when this lovely holiday rolls around. I guess it’s cool. I’m sure Maddie and I will be fine alone with a bucket of treats for her and bags of candy hearts for me. She’s my Valentine this year…and every year since I’ve had her. I’m not gonna sit here and be all “Bah Humbug” about today. It is what it is. If I was with someone, they’d know it. But I’m not, so I’ll make the best of it. “Applebees, yeah, you have anything tonight around 8:00 open? Uh huh. No, that’ll be a party of one.”

Some of you like to read the tabloids and get updates on where some of these girls have been during filming. Well, the only ones of the final four who’ve been spotted out that I’ve seen show up in pictures are Courtney and Kacie. Courtney’s pics I posted last week, and Kacie seems to have a fan gathering in Nashville on Monday nights, so she’s been seen quite a bit out and about. Anybody wondering about Lindzi? She was actually in Florida this past weekend at a horse riding competition. And Nicki? Well, she was at BlackFriar Saturday night on McKinney Ave in Dallas. Was there with a group of people apparently celebrating a friends party. Ha ha…that’s funny. Did I or did I not say either last week or the week before that I hoped to see her out at Blackfriar one of these night. I wasn’t there, but plenty of others were and thought they’d pass it along. Thanks for the heads up. All the more amazing that I was supposed to be on McKinney Ave. Saturday night until some people flaked.

As I mentioned on Thursday, the “Women Tell All” is set to tape Friday, February 24th in L.A. You can now also pencil in the “After the Final Rose” taping on Sunday, March 4th, the day before the “Women Tell All” episode actually airs. I was contacted by the people over at and they informed they are giving away tickets to BOTH tapings this Saturday. All you have to do is go to their website on Saturday, click on this link:, register, and you’re entered into a drawing to possibly win tickets. You can’t do it today or the rest of this week. They won’t have the registering up until Saturday, with the drawing later on in the day. So if you want a chance to go, head on over to their site and maybe you’ll get lucky.

And in case you missed any of Blakeley’s exit interview last week, or, Chris Harrison’s semi-annual mid-season conference call with the media, you can now check those out as well. I forgot that roughly halfway through every season, Chris gets on the conference call and updates everyone on what’s to come. Basically just spewing a bunch of nonsense and trying to throw people off in his answers. Just read it and you’ll see how he’s trying to throw people off the beaten path that it’s Courtney. Nice try. On to last night…

    The only way I will ever watch this show again is if after the final ceremony show, Ben looks at Courtney and says after watching her, he wants to break up. I understand reality tv, don’t take it real serious and just tune in for the train-wreck of it. But this season, for some reason, it bugs me. Maybe because Courtney is such an obvious plant or it means there are really so-dumb men out there such as Ben. I’ll miss the show – always enjoyed the ridiculous falling in love after 2 dates and what the girls would do but this season, we have been duped.

    First off, I think Courtney is hilarious. Everything that comes out of her mouth is hysterical and true. Everyone ripping on her are taking the show and her way too seriously. I think Courtney and Ben actually have feelings for each other, and I hope they did find love. We will see. Looking forward to ATFR. Second, my roommate is Ben’s masseuse in Marin. She said all the girls she works with love him, and whenever he comes in they all go gaga over him. She said it’s been that way since before the bachelorette. She said he’s cuter in person too. 🙂

    I finally figured out why Ben insists on keeping his hair long … next time the wind blows, or the camera catches him at a certain angle, take a look at his ears: seriously, he’s more jug-headed than Prince Charles and actually closely approximates Alfred E. Newman of Mad Magazine.
    My vote for who Courtney resembles in the lip department is Susan Dey in her role as Laurie [if I remember correctly] in the sitcom “The Partridge Family.”
    Courtney = psycho; Ben = babble. Together, they are “psychobabble.”
    P.S. Can’t ANYONE teach Ben how to kiss quietly, without all those squeaky-sucking sounds?! Ewwwwww!

    Has anyone thought about what it would be like if Courtney, once she dumps doofus, ends up on BP3? How crazy would that be??!! Though, part of me thinks if Ben is having second thoughts, watching her behavior on the show these past weeks would help him save face ( just a little) if he ends up being the Dumper.

    Did I hear correctly Ben saying to Emily “I know smart girls don’t like being called smart.” Yikes.
    I vote for Courtney and Bentley.

    Ben is in need of a fashion coach. He looks awful in tank tops. He also needs a better hairstyle. He looks like a sloppy nerd with his sweaty and greasy hair parted in the middle.
