Bachelor Ben Recap: Episode 5

Groban is certainly not raising me up to more than I can be this season. Between crossing off “skinny dip with model” on his leap list and the fact that he sent darling Jennifer home last night, I’m having trouble finding any redeeming qualities in this show.

However, I am thankful for the blurry modesty patches that covered their bits and pieces.  It was nice to see Groban in something other than a grey henley.

With that said, there were a few memorable quotes scattered through the brutal two-hour episode. Check out my favorites over at Huffington Post by clicking HERE.

The recap will be up late this afternoon.

It’s raining gatos. Ha hahaahahaha. What a dork.

I’m serious, though… if Ben doesn’t cut his hair soon, I might lose it.

I was very disappointed in the glaring absence of bang braids in this episode. Ben really could have used one.

Also, did anyone else see “roberto” on the stadium and for a moment hope that this meant we would see our favorite baseball player on this date, only to realize with disappointment that the stadium was named after Roberto Clemente?

I guess they were trying to recreate the magic that happened when Ali and Roberto hung out at the baseball stadium in Florida. Except that Roberto was en fuego and Ben is. . . well . . . not.

I wish that when Ben says: “Will you accept this rose?” one or more of these girls would say to him: “Actually, no. If you want to carry on like that with Courtney, I’m out of here.” I guess lack of self-respect is one of the prerequisites to being selected for this show.

I don’t know what disturbed me more….the fact that he went skinny dipping with the psycho or that he held his jewels whilst sauntering out to the waves…what was he trying to hide? why did he need to ever-so-gently covet them?

Anybody else think that Groban looked like Alfalfa in that tux last night??? Not loving the hair!!!

Can we call Courtney “Bentleyanna” from now on? She’s a better actor than he was–he could barely disguise his revulsion for Ashley. At least she can look all fawn eyed at Groban.

Rebecca … I agree. I hated him in the tux and the baseball uniform! He is just so unattractive and the fact that he is being led by Courtney using little Ben, makes him even more unattractive. I hope he ends up with her because at this point I think he doesn’t deserve any of the normal women. Yuck!!!

im sorry—i had liked ben up until this episode!!! his hair looks more and more ridiculous, right along with his peach fuzz facial hair. and then when he was in that tux and bow tie–he looked like charlie chaplin!!! what a dork—at least he sent elyse home with whom there was no spark (she had the prettieist hands tho!) –but seriously, this guy has dropped fast on my list. jennifer home????? really???? she and kacie b are the cutest by far….

Ben is quickly becoming my least favorite bachelor ever and that’s saying a lot because I was not that fond of boring Captain Baldwin or Melba Toast and didn’t like Jake at all.

I have heard rumors of who he picked in the end and I am not happy…

There was something so arrogant about the way Ben treated Emily.

Now that he is watching this he has to be mortified that this foul mouthed girl is playing him.

Another great line: Courtney trying to convince Ben to skinny dip by saying “You’re only in Puerto Rico once…” Or every two months, eh Courtney??

Humidity and curly hair do not mix! I applaud Kacie B. for letting her hair go natural rather than fight the curl.

Given what we’ve seen of Ben’s mom and sister and the parts of Courtney that Ben has seen (not including the lady drama), I don’t understand how he thinks she would be a good addition to his family. Does he think she’ll convince his mom to be more “free” and get nakey??

Ben endeared himself to me in the first few episodes…I realized he actually has sort of a dry wit and he seemed…well, normal. But now he’s behaving in the perfect stereotype of guys…always thinking with the little brain. At this point I think he deserves what he gets if he picks that witch Courtney. Especially with the sweet normal girls he has to choose from. I can’t find any redeeming qualities in her – and I don’t even think she is that attractive. I just don’t see it. Maybe it’s because Grandma always said pretty is as pretty does…and there is nothing pretty going on there – expept maybe her matching panties and bra. Lincee…you left out one other quote – “who knew strippers could play baseball” Classy.

I juts want to know where I can get one of those necklaces with my name on it so my husband can remember my name when he gives me the rose…where in the world did all those girls get those necklaces…Looked like High School if you ask me!

I sure hope Emily has better manners than our buddy Ben does!

@NotaBenFan – I agree that it seemed like Ben was talking down to Emily. I get that he doesn’t want her focusing on the other girls, but warning her “tread lightly” and “be careful” made him sound like a jerk to me.

I think I’m rooting for Lindzi or Kacie B., but both are too good for him after his escapades with Courtney last night. Any of the women left are better than that.

Too bad, I liked Ben until now!
