WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED
Ben was definitely unsure about whether Kacie would put out in the fantasy suite, that had to be the tiebreaker between her and Nicki
that was a fantastic meltdown...i thought she was gonna get by unscathed.
im sorry i was confusing...your "Superbowl" was the Redskins losing since you know that the Ravens cant win it all.
I thought this too and if she did, Kacie's father would have him killed. The meltdown was unexpected from her "WHAT THE F***".
I guess I'm not the only who noticed that Courtney didn't hug Kacie or even go to her and Kacie didn't even look at Courtney's directions. She's on the Bill Belichick level of postgame hugs trolling.
I definitely noticed that, when Lindzi and Nicki went to hug Kacie Courtney got this look on her face of very fake, forced sympathy and just kind of stood there. At least she didn't taunt her like she did Emily.
I'm not going to lie, it's going to break my heart when Lindzi gets rejected for Courtney
Nikki would have been my girl if I didn't find out that her parents divorced and her first marriage failed.
divorcee vs horse girl vs unibrow troll. Ben really knows how to pick 'em.
Lindzi has, and will always have, her horses....I think she'll be fine.
Kacie is the only one I have sympathy for....I was really upset she took it that hard. Down the road, after he picks Courtney and everyone realizes he's deranged, too, the rejected will take a deep sigh of relief.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
What I can't figure out is this...
How long has this show been on? And what % of these relationships actually work?
These girls should know that the % of winning combined with the relationship success rate if you win is like slim to none. Why would they invest all these feelings? Once they make the show they should be figuring out a way to profit off of their 15 minutes.
Do you really think this next bachelorette girl is expecting to find her husband? hell no.
"Do you really think this next bachelorette girl is expecting to find her husband? hell no."
You're overestimating the intelligence of most of these people. Like in the episode last week when Courtney said something along the line of, "There's other guys out there," in reference to not being worried if she doesn't get a rose. As soon as she said that, three other girls freaked out as if Ben IS the only man in the world.
It's called casting. They do a psych eval as part of the process just like they do on Big Brother.
Of course they present it like they want to weed out any real lunatics, but in truth they want to the show weighed heavily with borderline chicks.
I thought they had already convinced Emily Maynard (from Brad Womack season) to do it next time.
Where did I say the next bachelorette?
No chance she is ever the bachelorette.
I kind of hope that there is a 1% chance that Ben rejects Courtney and ABC decides to make her the next Bachelorette. That would be great TV. Her going from the chaser to the chased. I bet if Ben pursued her on the Bachelorette, she wouldn't 1/100 as enamored with him as she is currently.
The audience for this show is mostly women and they pander to their demographic. No chance they want to see her be the bachelorette either.
They would watch her hoping she gets her heartbroken. They would much rather watch someone they hate getting hurt than watching a friend they like have true happiness.
And half the entertainment is the catty comments they get to make....my wife spent a good 5 minutes on the phone w/ my mom discussing Courtney. You think they wouldn't watch?
I want to congratulate Neal for calling the Top 3 right after the 1st episode and calling the top 4 after the 2nd week. If I didn't know better, I would have thought that you looked at the spoilers.

I sadly admit I have watched many seasons prior to this and it sounds like I am missing out on a gem this season. May have to go back and watch no demand. The two hour episodes (really about 90 mins) it what will make it hard to try to and catch the whole season. May just need to fake an illness and lay around watching one day.
None of the men as bachelor relationships have worked out. In fact, there's only one successful relationship (Trista) from all 17 seasons of the bachelor/bachelorette.
I received no less than 7 text messages last night about Courtney's Sex and the City plagiarism. Plagiarizing from Sex and the City when you know the demographic watching this show is primarily young female women who spent a good portion of their lives saying things like "I'm such a Charlotte!" make me think that Courtney realizes what she's doing. The meltdown when Ben picks Courtney will rival that of when Casey Anthony was found innocent.
Here's the power rankings for this week, they were up earlier but today was my first day at a new job so I thought there should be at least ONE day where I don't spend 6 hours on the board.
Bump for tonight. Who's getting the boot? My guess is Nicki.
