Okay, just saying. !
I didnt see it( nor am I sorry I didn't see it) but her parents dont seem to like much
Kacie is too good for Ben and this trashy show.
"A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment." -- Jane Austen
She deserves BETTER (yes, I said it; Ben's a jerk). Once she gets over the embarrassment of having become infatuated on TV during the Reality-Show Era, she'll be fine.

I just didnt like them, okay?? As someone else said nobody will be good enough for them , I think that's been her problem for awhile.
Kacie's parents just seemed very southern to me. They were raised with conservative christian values and expect the people that come to their home to respect those values. My boyfriend and I are both scientists, but when we are at his parent's house we respect their values and don't try to force ours on them. I thought Ben was very respectful to Kacie's parents, but I also understand why he wasn't comfortable. The values you saw from her parents are very common in the south particularly in smaller towns. She seemed frustrated with it, but honestly, to me it made them seem more real. In real life if she brought home a guy she had known for six weeks and wanted to marry him, I don't think they would be excited. They just refused to play into the false fantasy world of this show.
I understand and agree with all you have posted. Did you see her little face? she looked hurt by them( to me) and what of the BF before Ben, I wonder if they upset him, or that relationship in some way. I don't know, I just got a vibe from them that's all. She seemed to me, she has the disease to please, and when you try and please everyone, there is nothing left for you
My father has passed away, but if I asked him if I could marry a guy I had known for six weeks he would have laughed in my face. And my dad was a great guy who accepted all of our spouses, but he would not have been okay with marrying a person you barely know.
I just think her parents didn't want to play the game. And it is not uncommon for parents down here to not want their children to live with the boyfriend or girlfriend before marriage, it is part of their up bringing and they don't believe it should change. I actually got the impression from listening to Kacie's mom talk to Ben that she watched the show and was not terribly excited that Kacie wanted to be on the show.
If anything Kacie whining that her parents should take risks just seemed immature to me. You know who your parents are, don't be shocked when you bring something like this into their home and they refuse to play along. I like Kacie, but I think she sounded like a spoiled little girl having a bit of a fit because her parents wouldn't let her have the thing she wanted. And I think had she and Ben been in love they would have found a way to make it work, but they weren't and the parents gave him an easy out to eliminate her.
