    Ok, I haven't watched the show yet, but now I'm intrigued because there seem to be pretty diverse opinions on Ben. I'll see what I think of him as the show goes on. I never make it a priority to watch on Monday nights but usually later in the week when I can indulge in trashy tv along with a glass of wine.

    I take back my comment about his hair being less flat! On the show last night it was totally flat and lanky.

    Yes, I guess they have to keep pushing that envelope.Most of us that do watch it know it rarely ends with happily ever after.Its not fun to see drunk girls crying, I dont care for that, and yet every season there's at least one that turns into an unstable mess

    I'm sure the producers told Ben to give a rose to the women who are unsuitable/unstable, to help keep the show 'interesting.' On the first episode of this season, there was a long stretch of the show where they didn't show Ben at all. I would prefer watching real conversations Ben might have getting to know the women to fake? drama between some of the women.

    I think they do that every season. I am sure there were more conversations than we saw, they simply edit them out.

Please, let this season be about something more than just apparently a lot of trashy girls getting wasted and fighting over the love of their life that they've only known for 5 minutes.

    And I missed the previews...what's this about skinny dipping right in front of the other girls on a group date?? Say what?

    Please, don't turn into a horndog like Blob. Please.
    Note sweetpea's above quote is from the West Coast Spoilers/Show thread, because my response is more about Ben.

    I agree that his sense of humor seems to be deadpan, dry ... and if I may say, somewhat condescending. I actually like dry/sarcastic humor too but I'll be watching to see if it's more than a touch of condescension.

    I think Ben is determined to have the attention focused on Ben ! This guy turned down Jennifer Love Hewitt because he said she "didn't meet his needs" and that he didn't want a famous-faced celebrity as his lady. Why ? Well why do we think ? I think it's because he wants the recognition for himself.

    Ben is trying to redeem himself and in my humble opinion he controlling and as fame hungry as any of them, Jake included.

    My thoughts are..maybe Ben doesn't want to be in the spotlight with his lady. I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one.

    Well, maybe he will turn out to be fame-hungry, but I don't necessarily interpret his comment about JLH to mean he wants to be the more famous one in the relationship. It could very well mean that he wants a wife who will be content to work by his side in the family business, and he figures a TV or movie star is not going to do that.

    I think Ben doesn't want to be in the spotlight behind his lady ... but both of their behinds in the spotlight is probably OK.
