Wow, what a difference a few weeks makes. This time three weeks ago, I felt indifferent toward Ben, with his annoying obnoxious hair and bland personality. But I have to say he has grown on me immensely since then. I like his disposition and his demeanor in the way he "handles" the women. And his decision this week to not give any of the final three women a rose just sealed it for me. Not giving out the final rose just for the sake of giving out a rose - good thinking Ben!
Regarding Shawntel's appearance, I'm confused. When she first arrived and spoke to Ben, it seemed that she referred to previous contact they'd had with each other, or maybe I just thought I heard her say that. Then she kept saying things like she wanted Ben from the first moment she'd seen him etc.??? Too weird. Anyway, Shawntel, nice try just the same. Thankfully Ben wasn't having it.
Another thing regarding Shawntel showing up, I really don't why the girls felt so threatened by her. If, she, as they were saying amongst themselves, didn't even know Ben, why would they feel so threatened, considering they themselves have at least gotten to know him, been in his company etc. I would have thought they would have thought that gave them a clear edge over her. Geez, all of them nearly fell to pieces over her being there, crying, fainting. And the stupidest thing about it was, they're already competing with each other for Ben anyway, what's one more woman to compete with along with a group of women you're already competing with. I mean, big, friggin' WHOOPTIE DO, for crying out loud!
