Valentine’s Day Edition:
Happy Valentine’s Day, Bachelor Fans! We’re finally down to the four lucky ladies who get to take Ben home to meet their families. Also lucky for us, in the words of @Possessionista, we get to see the parents that produced this season’s villain.
Who Got Kicked Off: As always, the ones with red X’s were sent home. The hearts indicate the ladies who are left and made it to hometown dates. As you can see the beloved Courtney is still in the running to “win” Ben’s heart. Poor Emily and Rachel. (Well, poor Emily. She was one of my picks for my team on Fantasy Bachelor. Costing me points!)
Lindzi got the first one-on-one date, which consisted of jumping out of a helicopter into the ocean followed by a romantic dinner. At their dinner they left a message in a bottle and littered – sorry, I mean romantically let it sail away on the waves. What did they write for their message in a bottle? A lame story about their romance. I still maintain it would have been cooler (at least more entertaining) to write “I see you” on the paper and then send it off so some lucky stranger could find it.
Emily got the second one-on-one date and went exploring around Belize with Ben. They went lobster diving and hung out with the locals. Courtney went on the final one-on-one where she had a picnic with Ben and climbed the steps of an ancient temple.
Group Date: Kacie B., Rachel, and Nicki were the lucky three that got to be woken up at 4 a.m. (yes, you read that correctly – 4 A.M.) to go shark diving. I’m surprised Ben made it out of that date alive. If the sharks didn’t get him, I was sure the ladies would have attacked him.
Fantasy Bachelor: My picks for yesterday: Emily, Kacie B., and Lindzi. Bonus pick: Rachel going home. I’m going to go out on a limb and say next week Nicki is going home.
Gossip: The big question swirling around the gossip circles is: Does Ben really find love? Signs keep pointing to no and speculation is that he chooses Courtney and things don’t work out. Ellen Degeneres tried to grill Ben about Courtney but Ben couldn’t comment. In Style Magazine reported that Ben The Bachelor was “still acting like a bachelor.” They reported seeing him going out to a few clubs with his guy friends and flirting with some ladies.
We shall see soon enough. Next week, hometown dates. All of the ladies are down home Southern belles. Well, all except for one. Which one of these is not like the others…
