    Your comment regarding unworthiness made me laugh as I think that's what's called swarm intelligence.
    And by the way they are hostile because they sense a predator.
    Like any metaphor, it's subject to irrelevance if carried too far. People are not bees.

    But, yes, you're taking this exactly where I was going - the bee-girls didn't sense a predator, they sensed someone who Ben liked - long before she stripped in Puerto Rico.

    I don't really think there's much mystery as to why Ben chose Courtney. He told us why. She's weird. He told us he likes weird because he's also weird.

    He found out while watching the season that she's also mean. Now they're trying the relationship out in the real world to see if he can live with mean.

    Normal and nice needn't have applied this season.

    Good luck to all of them.

And, last but not least, Courtney was the only one there who was a "real person", and that is why she stood out to Ben? Now, I find that very interesting since the majority of America felt like Courtney was REAL good at playing games with Ben. So, what did you mean by saying that Courtney was the only one who was real?

    And, I have never been in a sorority - nor a hive - and this is pure speculation on my part. But, I am guessing that there is a good possibility that you have had a bad experience in your life with one or more of those so-called hive women, and it has soured you. No offense intended. I think that we often form our opinions based on our own life experiences, but you are making a whole lot of assumptions about Courtney and all of the other 24 women. Not all sorority types are superficial and therefore are unpleasant, just like not all models are just like the Courtney that we got to see and hear. Are they?

    I realize that you have felt the need to come to Courtney's defense here on this board, but it seems that we have come to an impasse here. I don't see any resolution, so it is probably best that I move on.
    It's sad that you feel the need to make personal comments about those you disagree with. I wouldn't do that to you.

    The behavior we saw out of most of those women is exactly what you see on Dr. Phil and all the other talkfests about 40-something women who can't find a partner and have no idea what's wrong with them. People can smell desperate a mile away. And if the goal was to land Ben, I would say that behavior didn't work so well for them either, so based on results, they were wrong and Courtney was right.
    This is so so true. Anyone that thinks this is remotely about love and marriage needs to watch another show.I also said that some of them were very desperate. This show started out one way, and has slowly eroded over several bachelors ( one that appeared twice )

    This show has been asked if It would go back to someone that we didnt know and MF has already said no, why would we. this works .It doesn't, but he doesn't care, he knows people will tune in with hope in their hearts .

    I apologize if you were offended. I removed the post. We each have our own take on things, and I can attest to the fact that many of my opinions are based on prior experiences in life, both good and bad. You and I can disagree on how we feel about Ben, Courtney and the entire cast of bachelorettes. It doesn't make either of us right or wrong. We simply see things differently. I just don't understand the labeling of all the other women as sorority types with a hive mentality. But, that is okay. Like I said, we just don't see things the same way.

    Re: Courtney *No Spoilers*

    Being on the Bachelor show is similar to living in a college dorm. Individuals choose to be on the show, just as individuals choose to attend a certain college. The women on the show don't know each other ahead of time, just as individuals who live in the same dorm didn't know each other before they started living together, and associating with each other. What's different about a sorority or fraternity is that those who join want to be with like-minded individuals... and those in the sorority or fraternity choose future members who are "like them."

    Thanks, Fanny Mare. I enjoy your posts, too. I think you're right that it's time to abandon the Great Courtney Debate.
