It would have been one thing to suggest they didn't agree with cohabitation before marriage but to out and out tell Ben she didn't want them living together? Hmm...controlling much? Like I said in the other thread, hate on Ben all you want, but I think he dodged a bullet when he sent Kacie on her merry way.
    She dodged a bullet not ending up with Ben! Her parents may have sensed something they didn't trust in him.

    And their alleged mistrust of him - which was certainly understandable if true--was overshadowed by Kacie's mom's controlling behaviour.

    Kacie came across like whiny little girl to me. And her over-the-top, 'trying her darndest to conjure up tears' in the limo act fell flat. I'm sure she was upset he'd sent her home, but not to the degree she was trying to portray that she was. Her crocodile tears weren't fooling me no how.

    Her tears seemed genuine to me. This appears to be a young lady who thinks she has to make everyone happy. When Ben "rejected" her, in her mind it was because she did not make him happy. She even said in the limo words to the effect of, "What did I do wrong?" I think this kind of thing really pushes her emotional buttons, and she had a genuine mini-meltdown. Besides, I have read that the producers keep driving the "rejects" around, poking and prodding at them emotionally until they break down.

    Whew it's not just me then. It's still happening for me on Firefox, but when I use Internet Explorer to open the page I am not having any issues. Ugh.

    I really like Kacie and I have to say that I was kind of put off by her attempt at tears too. I do believe she was honestly upset, but I also think that she might have been realizing what a mismatch she and Ben actually were as well.

    As an old (and I mean old) former baton twirler, I'm prompted to march in and speak up. Instruction and competition begins at an early age. Girls dream of filling slots in Junior High and High School and some even further in college, where scholarships are offered by some schools. Kaci was a majorette at the University of Tennessee, so most likely she's been twirling many years. Although I tried to talk them out of it, I had mothers who hired me to teach their four-year-olds! I love marching band music and twirling so that was a certainly a nostalgic scene for me but my reaction was that most viewers would not appreciate it. It's as one poster mentioned, the equivalent of Graham taking DeAnna to his old basketball gym.

    Parents who are familiar with this show certainly know that marriage does not result quickly even when the "engagement" happens. No reason to take it seriously. Just entertain the bachelor, be cordial and go with it. Production has a hand in pushing the parents to talk about what we see, as well.
