He feels such a "connection" with that horrible girl, Courtney.
But, even though I don't find her attractive, I think he does....maybe her telling him she's a model makes him see something different. There are many pretty girls on this show and I would put her in the bottom 4. But I'm thinking dating a model is just something boys want like underoos when they're little and embarrassing sports cars when they're old. Anyway, he was really reaching to find a connection with her, and pretty much assuming or telling her she was in the same place in life as him. A working model is not likely to be at the settle down stage. It could happen, but do you really want a girl who behaves like that mothering your children?
