I’ve never understood these people who “fall” for someone so hard after so little time in such a strange setting as the Bachelor/Bachelorette, especially early in the season, but maybe because so many of us are agreed that Ben is less than thrilling, it seems even more strange than usual this time. Four women leaving the field, half of them in tears over losing the baseball game to win time with Ben, one of the women going, “Time with Ben is precious (sniff).” It’s embarrassing.
When Courtney made fun of the losing team, saying, “Crybabies, all the way home on the bus: boohoohoo,” and then they showed them indeed crying in the darkened bus, I’m sorry, but it was funny.
I see Courtney as someone doing an act (whether she’s an actual “plant” or not), so I don’t get worked up about the things she says or does, and often find it amusing. When the women at the house were discussing Elyse’s ongoing 1-1 date and Courtney said something extreme, one of the women cracked a smile. I thought that she found Courtney amusing like I do.
When Elyse was on the boat, her long dark hair (which looks great, I think), was blowing back in the wind, but there was a strand caught in front of her left ear and hoop earring. It was so distracting, I kept wanting to reach forward and release it or for someone to do it.
Well that's it. Game over. How can he possibly pick another girl now that he has been "intimate" with Courtney?
Don’t all the Bachelors/Bachelorettes eventually get intimate with several of their suitors before the end of the season? I don’t understand why so many people are so disgusted, unless the same people always find the final episodes disgusting too. Yes, it’s a little earlier in the game, but even by the end, the Bachelor/Bachelorette still hardly knows any of the people there and at that point, they’re sleeping (or having very intimate private bedroom nights) with several people. (ETA: I actually find that, happening on TV especially, pretty striking, to say the least. All this serial kissing too. I'm just surprised there are such
strong reactions to Courtney's skinny-dipping shenanigans when it's set amidst all the other stuff on this show.)
The scoreboard clearly showed that the score was 6 - 7 in favor of the blue team in the bottom of the third (0 runs in the top of the inning, 1 run in the bottom of the inning). Why were they all telling us that the game was only supposed to be two innings and then went to a bunch of extra innings when the blue team should have won in the first extra inning?
I thought I saw the scoreboard showing 2 runs in both the top and bottom of the third inning, forcing a fourth and final inning.
I don't know what it is, but the recycled Bachelors have all, to a man, seen their stock plummet upon becoming the Bachelor.
For me, the recycled Bachelors and Bachelorettes have often lost my respect at some point in their season as the lead, because they act (or are edited to look like they are being) excessively demanding of their suitors, and it looks like the lead role has gone to their head.
