As for Ben, totally agree that he's probably on just to promote his business. Also agree that this show gets trashier every season. Soon they won't bother to pull away the cameras on the overnight dates...:barf
Yeah I'm sure pretty soon we'll have the green night vision camera in the fantasy suites :mmm
I was actually shocked by that break up, I thought they were Trista and Ryan 2.0, guess I'm naive
There is a thread in Ali's Bachelorette forum that discusses the break up.
As for the choices Ben makes this season on who to keep and who to send home I just don't think he will be making the best choices in that I mean listening to his head and his heart and using common sense and I just have this dread in my stomach that tells me that "little ben" will be making most of his choices which is sad
I'm not one of Ben's HUGE fans, but I kind of like him. I like him much much much much better than any previous bachelor (I did miss a few seasons). I've thought they were all deadly dull duds. Having seen some outtakes from Andrew Firestone's season, I discovered he was hilarious .... when they let him be. So maybe the fault is with the editors. *shrug* Given that I feel that way, why do I keep watching? I don't really know ... I wouldn't gawk at a real-life train wreck, but a deliberate one on television? I guess I would.
As for the "surprise" woman joining the merry band, I don't know who it is either, but I don't think it's for certain an "old girlfriend". I think that was just one of them speculating; maybe that's right, maybe not. Ha, maybe it's Ali? Or Emily? Gah!
I'm also wondering if Constantine will put in an appearance. Hee!
He's not in this for marriage and kids. He's might be in it to find a girlfriend, but he's not worried about being Trista and Ryan or Ali and Roberto or even Travis Stork and his chosen one ;) I'd love for him to prove me wrong.
