And you can be sure if Michael would tear Ben to shreds in such an unwarranted manner, imo, that if she ends up with him, he'll end up doing the same to her at some point. At the very least acting condescending toward her.
While cleaning up my mumbo jumbo about Brooks, I came across something else.
Please tell me I misheard this.
In the hotel, while Des is with Chris, the guys get on the topic of being on either the remaining group date or the 2 on 1. Knock, knock, it's the door. Date card arrives. Names are read off. Reality sets in (pardon the pun). Michael says that he finds Ben repulsive and that there is more than enough evidence to convict him as being a fraud and he gladly accepts the challenge in this gladiator type setting. I think he then says, "I need to go and murder Ben." That can't be! I must be just so disenchanted with this guy that I am imagining things.
Yes BB he did say that ( sigh) . He really should chill, given this is a fluffy show called The Bachelorette .Maybe he has a thing for the guy, and was rejected ;)
Sorry, BB ... but I really feel that Ben displayed no integrity throughout , and we'll find that Michael is not such a bad guy.
It is obvious that Des and whomever she chooses will not be double dating ... but she might with Michael. :)
Yes, she was "uncomfortable" but I believe she (like me:)) knew what he was trying to accomplish and that the rest of the house including her favorites were likely part of this.
ETA: Maybe this is why the comment that there could end up being zero guys!
I think Ben cooled off when MG started talking about parenting, how many children does MG have again, oh right none. :ohno
The real villain here is Michael. Sorry but the fact that Ben apparently went on the show for publicity for his bar doesn't make him a villain IMO, rather it makes him publicity hungry. But given the history and the nature of this show over the years, contestants became aware that they could milk fifteen minutes of fame in the aftermath. If anything it's become the expected norm for many of the contestants. They look at it as a way of furthering the fame, so even if they don't end up with the Bachelor or Bachelorette, they might still get something out of it, fame-wise. So I failed to see Ben as a villain based on that alone.
On the other hand Michael going out of his way to single Ben out based solely on the fact that he's a miserably jealous, arrogant, self-centered bully (as much as I hate the overuse of that word in today's society), makes him the thing he was trying to make Ben out to be.
As far as I can remember, Ben never once went out of his way to bad mouth any of the guys or get up in their faces. In fact every time one of the other guys pounced on him with accusations--and there were numerous times it happened, Ben somehow remained calm, soft-spoken and cooperative with all the dumb accusations being hurled at him. He always answered their questions, no matter how rude they were.
From day one Ben was singled out , mainly because the rest of the guys were jealous that he brought his kid along with him to make an impression on Des. They simply couldn't handle the stroke of "genius" of it. And one of the main guys who got the ball rolling and kept it rolling was Mr. "Full of Himself, yet extremely insecure", Michael G.
Ben is far from perfect , and in fact there may have been many aspects of his character, good or bad, that were edited out, who knows. But for all Michael's attempts to paint him as some sort of despicable human being, fell flat as far as my impressions of him are concerned.
