Oh Courtney *sniff *sniff, bring it in for a group hug girl, all is forgiven you are America's sweetheart now with that truly genuine and convincing speech :barf
Took me 2 days to force myself to watch this episode... I don't think I've ever been more bored at this point in a season and I've always had someone at this point that I was rooting for but at I could really care less who Ben chooses, no actually I do care a little. I think Lindzi could do better, run for your life girl!!
I can't believe we're down to the final two and I'm so bored I couldn't care less who "wins". WTA should be interesting though.
Wow, great posts and everything I was thinking was covered, so don't have anything new to add. My biggest observation during this whole season was Ben's lack of communication on screen when talking or lack of talking to the girls. When he said he needed to get answers from Courtney and have some serious conversation with her as she was trying to explain in her limited way I noticed that Ben basically said all was well and he didn't want to discuss it anymore. What kind of discussion was that? She could have said the grass was green for an explanation and he would have accepted it.
Since they have been trying to make Courtney seem like a better person in the last two weeks I am sure that they will just bring her back to make this public apology to the girls and maybe dream up some sort of background story for her so she ends up looking like the good girl and the other girls looking like they were just jealous of her. We all know how fake and full of drama this show is. Even though they say it will shock us I expect it to be a let down.
Why does it seem that Lindz always gets the least romantic dates? For that matter most of the other girls with one on one dates got something that involved physical or very challenging dates while I didn't see any of that with Courtney. She got a picnic with the cows. I thought Ben liked physical challenges, but I never saw him care about that with Courtney unless with her being physical means physical attraction only. From my memory all her one on one dates were all picnics. Where was all the adventure he claims to thrive on?
Every season they do the same thing. It just doesn't seem like they come up with any new ideas. Kacie B coming back has been done before. I just feel bad for her. Not that she lost out to Ben because I think she will be better off, but her parents controlling manner needs to stop. I did feel bad that Ben basically told her he did not see her at the end although he had let her believe up to that point that she had a very good shot at being there.
How do these girls end up acting surprise when the famous fantasy suite card arrive? They certainly know it is coming after watching The Bachelor as how did they get there in the first place unless they had watched the show. Again, so fake. Actually, I question myself why I watch this show as it is so scripted. I know it is because I love seeing where they go. Might be my only chance to see some of these beautiful places.
Regarding Emily Maynard being the next Bachelorette - just plain ridiculous. I found her to be a very boring person when she was on Brad's season. She has plenty of money and I don't know why she would even do this show and have her beautiful daughter that she says she loves so much be able to watch and hear all about it down the road. I am sure that there are plenty of available men right where she lives and we all know she is not leaving there, so why bother?
We are getting to the end of this boring season and looks like we are getting ready for the next boring one. I agree with all those who think they should try to find new people. I really liked Emily from this season and would have loved to see her as the next Bachelorette. She seemed like a nice girl with a good sense of humor who I think would have offered us more than Emily Maynard, but what do I know? :mmm
I guess they think this formula works. People that dont like the show/girl/guy still tune in, I have. I wont watch Emily's season, not because I hate her, I dont know her. But its all been said and done over and over. :zzz Plus its on when May? way too nice to be inside . I guess until Fleiss sees the numbers tanking, then he won't change the show.:shrugQuote:

Good point, Jaceegirl, about there being no strenuous physical dates with Courtney, when Ben made a point of saying more than once that he likes that kind of thing, and it's important to him to see how the women react in those circumstances. Why did he keep torturing Lindzi with those dates, while Courtney gets lazy picnics in the grass? Maybe it's in her contract that she cannot risk any injury or harm to her lovely talented face because she is A MODEL!
