I think that nudity in other cultures is perfectly acceptable. I have even been known to (once!) try topless sunbathing in Greece when Mr. S and I were on Rhodes. I think the problem here lies not so much in the fact that she was sans bathing suit top under the beads, it was the behaviour while she was there that irritates many. I could care less if she wasn't wearing anything but beads, just don't shake your tata's in an effort to draw attention to the fact. She's just weird, IMO, but I'll say this much for her: she definitely knows how to play the reality-tv-show-villain game to a T. Either this is who she is in real life (not somebody I'd probably be friends with but whatever) OR she's putting this show on for the purpose of making herself the talk of the show. I think it's the latter, primarily, and if that's why she's there it's got nothing to do with liking/loving Ben or any genuine feelings, and all to do with self-promotion. That tells me all I need to know about Courtenay.

Courtney is 28 and a model. She is not getting any younger. Her agent was obviously all over getting her face time on TV and to that end The Bachelor accomodates. Courtney has zip zero interest in Ben. It's easy to tell because the less you care about someone the easier it is to really throw yourself out there, you could care less if you lose. Just as with Michelle Money, both girls were directed to play the bad girl part to the hilt as it makes them more interesting, thus more face time, both on the show and BONUS- afterwards as well.
This is an acting gig and promotional commercial for Courtney. And remember there is no such thing as bad press in Hell-ay.
The sad thing is I think MOST of the other girls are there for legitimate reasons, Ben and Love.
And sadder still, Ben is looking like he is heading down the road to become the most-hated-bachelor-ever for picking the mean model over the sweet girls next door.
Did you see them shaking their boobies around like she did? Nope! Did you see the children staring at her - Yep! Say whatever you want - she didn't do it to fit in with the natives. The girl is a pig - just put an apple in her mouth and light the fire.
I totally agree she's playing up to the camera for self promotion & that she has no feelings at all for Alfalfa. But I really do think that is how she is and it makes me want to

She's even surpassed Vienna as far as viewer's dislike. That's saying something! I defended Vienna for a bit during Jake's season (mostly because I thought Ali was a bully and a b*tch) but after awhile I grew tired of her ridiculous behaviour and gave up. She and slimy Jake deserved each other. Neither one was even remotely appealing at the end. That's how I'm feeling this season as well, but I have no desire to defend Courtenay because I think she's just really weird and creepy.
