Bachelor Recap: Week 9

I know I say this all the time, but I really have no clue how I can convey the level of complete boredom that was a result of last night’s episode.  My watching party consisted of four dear friends (if you see Carrie Darrah…tell her Happy Birthday for me!) and of those four dear friends, three of them were working, one almost fell asleep and I found myself listing all the different synonyms for the word “grey” instead of listening to Groban respond “huh” when one of the bachelorettes professed their love.

Typically when the show is over, we all brainstorm ideas for my Huffington Post article.  My deadline is midnight and my creative juices are typically dormant after the ten o’clock hour.  But last night’s brainstorming session was a complete beating.  Much like Groban’s reaction to Kacie B.’s triumphant return to Switzerland, there were vacant stares and complete silence clouding the living room.

With the deadline looming in the distance, I decided to go the unconventional route by creating a pop quiz.  Check it out HERE and let me know how you scored.  And then say a little prayer for me that I come up with an entertaining post that is more entertaining than reading the Swedish side of the instructions on a billy bookcase from Ikea.  Fingers crossed!

You will definitely have to work your “magic” on this snoozefest Lincee. I can’t wait for this season to be over with…..

WOW!! I actually watched a little of the Daytona 500 and didn’t feel I missed anything from last night’s show. Ben the Boring even made the “forego”date card episode forgetable!! Not that next season looks much better…..especially after the “sneak peak” watching Ali (sans Roberto) Ashley and her way too dark hair, and Emily. Could be another snooze-fest, gang!

It was so painful to watch last night. I drifted off several times only to wake, rewind, and find I hadn’t missed more than a few nods of Groban’s shaggy head. In an effort to avoid the black widow, I tried to fall asleep during Courtney’s date. She wouldn’t stop touching her hair and doing that weird lip thing though and I became entraced (in a scary way). I forced myself to watch through the end. TIA for making the lameness of this season entertaining. Why do we continue to watch? Maybe we should should all wear our mini-dresses, 4 inch heels, & 3D glasses to make it more exciting.

The only thing that was exciting about last night’s episode is that six months ago, I was exactly where they were!

Unfortunately, Interlaken is kind of the least pretty part of the Bernese Oberland area. It’s commercial and not really in the Alps, just the gateway. But I hiked through Wengen like Ben and Courtney and stood on a peak a lot like what Ben and Nikki stood on (but I hiked up there and did not take a helicopter). And it was the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen.

I would like to say, that canyon that Ben and Lindzi were crying and clutching their pearls while they were sedately lowered down in harnesses? Yeah, I jumped off that platform and free fell to the bottom. What they did was probably the lamest thing anyone has ever done in that canyon.

Love the Huffington Post quiz!!! great job!

and Ben is total lamesauce! all of these women profess their love for them and all he does is stare back at them like he doesn’t understand English.

at least fake it!!! don’t just completely ignore them.

Where in the world has Ben’s personality gone? He showed some funny moments on Ashley’s season and all we get are blank stares and glazed over looks from him this season. He bores me. And Emily bored me on Brad’s season, so I don’t have any hopes for The Bachelorette to be much better.

Not gonna lie. Last night The Voice won out for me, and I only watched the Bachelor during commercial breaks. By what I saw, and from reading the quiz, I would say I was Winning last night!!

I caught 3 1/2 minutes of each date (including the ‘tough’ questions for Courtney), 3 1/2 minutes of laughing at Emily, Ashley and Ally wearing 3D glasses while being glammed up, 3 1/2 minutes of KC painful/awkward second rejection, 3 1/2 minutes of talking with Harrison and 3 1/2 minutes of painful rose ceremony.

I had intended on watching the rest online today – but it really does not seem necessary at this point!

My thoughts on Courtney’s “turnaround”. Courtney said all she did in the past because she never dreamed she would actually make it this far (or that Ben wouldn’t see through her), and she wanted to ensure she had enough face time on TV for her 10 minutes of fame. Now that she realizes she could very well win this, she has started to have some remorse because of knowing exactly how she came across. Is this too little, too late?

IMO absolutely yes, however the more I keep disliking Ben, the more I really don’t give a crap who he ends up with!

Aaaaaaaahhhhh!! This was the worst! Mainly because I watched it live. Note to self: DVR from now on.

Courtney knew/knows exactly how to play the game–play the mean girl for the sake of controversy and then retract once I realize I’ve gotten too much attention. The fact that she keeps re-hashing how “hard” it was for her, makes me think that she isn’t remorseful, but rather, trying to keep the attention on how much she needs “protecting.” Poor pitiful Courtney–she’s not fooling anyone. She’s out of work and is trying to prove just what a great actress she really is.

I think after Kacie B’s visit, Groban was really hurt! It looked like he had gotten socked in the stomach by Kacie. I think it’s because he has already decided on Courtney and when he heard that she had said, “if it’s not Ben, there are other fish in the sea,” he actually felt as if his “girlfriend” betrayed him. He looked genuinely out of breath. I think that’s why he “cried.” Not because of letting Nikki go…

Lindzi, honey, when you wear a dress that barely covers your netherregions standing up…PLEASE don’t lay down and put your arms up in it. Total butt shot–I rewound it for my husband. I think he was debating with me so that I would rewind again and again, but that’s niether here nor there—what was she thinking?? I told my husband that unless she has legs 19 feet long, it was a total booty shot, that’s why they put that column in place in the second shot.

Ay ya yay! This season has GOT to end. Thank goodness for TWTA next week and Lincee’s recaps this week!!

Yeah… Not a whole lot to talk about on this one. Why did Ben turn so boring? With Ashley he was funny and entertaining. Now… I can’t even explain it. It’s just boring.

ok, my wife and I were rotf laughing when Ben gave Nicki’s cleavage a stare, not once, but twice during the little sit down prior to the fantasy suite. He’s showing his true colors more and more. What is up playa!

Ben seems to have adopted the vacant stares and complete disinterest from Ashley H. It was so obvious he was dumping Nikki. I did notice him ogling her chest. At first, I thought she was wearing a v-neck sweater without anything under it!

Does anyone else find it ironic that they are sending a Bachelorette with a failed relationship and another idiot to help out Emily? She doesn’t need help in the first place! I predict her season to be really underwhelming.

I think Ben and Courtney deserve each other. They actually do seem to have a connection. As much as I don’t like Courtney personally, she makes for an interesting date and is engaging to him. Her baby talk has got to go. Do men really like this?

Lindzi is too sweet for him, and will ultimately “lose” in the end – my prediction.

Loved your quiz! I fell bad for you and “Some Guy” trying to write a recap of such a boring season. Wake up ABC, stop recycling past contestants and give us new people.

Yikes, what a horrific snoozefest!

Ben gets what he deserves if he picks The Model since so many have warned him about her.

The biggest what the heck was Ben and Linzzi’s ”rappeling (sp?) date. Aren’t you suppose to jump off the platform and leap off the rocks every several feet? I laughed so hard watching those two inch their way down the rope.

Fingers crossed that lovely Em’s season is so much better!

This season is so boring that the franchise has started leaking their own spoilers. They told us last week on Good Morning America that Kacie would be coming back. Snooze.

How stupid was Lindzi for not wearing a coat on her date. “It’s cold here”. No shit, Sherlock. That’s why the glaciers don’t melt. Can’t believe Ben didn’t offer one of his sixteen layers for her to put on. My husband would have offered his coat in a heartbeat.
I know everyone loves Lindzi but I can’t handle her fake-bake Oompa Loompa tan. Her voice reminds me of the woman in the anti-smoking commercial who had a breathing tube in her throat. Nails on a chalkboard for me.
Ben actually showed some humility after his talk with Kacie. I guess we’ve moved from the “wail rail” (Jake/Jason) to the “fall in the hall”. Geez people, get it together.
