Bachelor Recap: Week 8

Thank goodness last night’s episode showcased a high school marching band and a fake wedding.  Otherwise it would have been the equivalent of watching traffic court on your local public access television station.

Somehow, I managed to cobble together an article for the Huffington Post.  Check it out HERE and come back later this afternoon for the recap.

PS:  Groban’s hair was as ridiculous as his cowboy outfit.  Discuss.

His. Hair. Is. Awful.

It finally hit me during Courtney’s fake wedding because his hair was SO BAD — Groban looks like Alfalfa from The Little Rascals!

I know its fun to ridicule this freak show, and you are a wonderful satirist, but I actually felt guilty supporting this mysogonistic show last nite watching Kacie cry and wonder what is wrong with her. As crazy as it sounds, I think real people have their feelings really hurt and have their self esteem damaged.
Personally if my daughter brought The Bachelor home i couldn’t share in her elation of falling in love with a guy who is doing the same thing with dozens of other girls and has a 25% chance of being in the rejection limo. I think i would be very hostile and mistrusting of any guy dating 3 other girls and coming home for the “Meet the Fockers” day. Plus Ben is the most boring, bland, passionless guy with absolutely no personality or appeal whatsoever. Think i will just read the blogs

If Courtney is a model, why does she walk in that godawful way…those little, mincing, baby steps that are a part jog? The fake wedding made me throw my pillows at the TV rather than hiding behind them.

Really?
Really?

Typically I grow to like the bachelor/bachelorette more and more as the season goes, however this is the first time I like someone less and less…he just seems so “BLAH”. I’m just not feeling it with him. I promise I’m not trying to be critical…I just feel very blah after watching the show last night.

It was very hard watching Kacie go home…blaming herself and not understanding what happened. She’s a sweet girl, which I guess maybe he realized so decided not to string her along…but it was hard seeing how deeply hurt she truly was.

I don’t understand why the producers haven’t told Ben how terrible his hair looks.

All of the sudden Courtney is semi-normal? Wtf? Where did this come from? It was nice to see that she is capable of a healthy relationship with another woman, even if it was her sister.

I predict that Ben ends up alone. He seems more interested in helicopter rides than he is in any of these girls. He’s most def not looking for a wife.

Looking forward to this recap and the one of the women tell all.

I thought the best part of the show was at the end when Courtney’s sister gleefully announced in a so called “toast” that Courtney and Ben went skinny dipping in Puerto Rico! Everybody looked embarrassed after that!

Ben had to write his “vows” in the notepad provided but it looked like Courtney was reading her “vows” from a smaller piece of paper (pre-written) and pretended that she had just written them in a similar notebook. Just further evidence of phoniness, I think, and more “dance monkey” manipulation.

This is the crappiest season yet of this trainwreck. It’s enough to make me swear off ever watching it again.
@Liz–the reason the producers haven’t told him is because then we couldn’t make fun of it every week and that would suck even more for us.

A fake wedding–really? With that psycho? I fell prey to In Touch magazine because it had a cover story on BenGroban and how she had a boyfriend while on the show. Even that was more entertaining than this week’s episode.

All I got out of this episode was an explanation as to why Courtney is the way she is….she is a carbon copy of her mother!! WOW! No disrespect to one of the funniest actresses ever, but her mom reminded me of Madeline Kahn. I just laugh when I hear Ben say “I just don’t want to be with someone people don’t get along with”… really? First off, why do you keep her around then? And secondly, who the hell cares if other like her if she seems so perfect for you??

And was her father really planning for grandbabies already??? They just met!

After watching this episode, I have come to the conclusion that all Courtney cares about is having a wedding. So she is going to settle for our average joe so that she can have her wedding produced and paid for by the lovely folks at ABC.

I love Nikki!! I hope he lets her off the hook soon.

@ Liz – Her sister got in a whole two comments during their entire conversation and she looked scared to death the whole time Courtney was talking… I’m not so sure how much they actually get along.
Especially considering that she threw out the skinny dipping info as soon as she got the chance! Yep, she hates her. Or they just lack parents who actually care if their adult child frolicks around naked in the water with a strange man for all the world to see.

I am not feeling it this season! So heinous.

I think that Kacie probably feels much better about herself after watching all these episodes. Emily said it best in her exit interview… Ben fell so hard for one of the other women so early on that no one else even had a chance. If I was her, I would be shocked to have seen him skinny dipping with one of the 3 girls left, much less to do it when you have 9 girls left!

I am glad he let sweet Kacie go. Even though it proves even more that he really is the jerk we all know he is, she is much better off. And God, the hair was especially bad this week. Get a frickin haircut! Also, I have no room to talk but weren’t Nikki’s hips especially wide this week? Can’t wait for this to be over and I don’t know if i can stomach Emily’s season. I will still read you though, Lincee!
