Rachel may have been afraid of swimming with sharks, but she should have been more worried about the one she was living with. Courtney is the worst kind of beautiful woman. She is the kind that is evil and vindictive in a way that no one that attractive has any reason to be. Did she only win Homecoming Queen once and become bitter and jealous that she couldn’t win every time? Was she wronged by the sexy Hollywood actor who wasn’t ready to settle down and marry this "model" in his prime? Poor Courtney. Sounds rough. That totally excuses your treating everyone like crap. Sorry, I don't buy the whole misunderstood quirky personality thing. The girls don't hate you because they don't understand you. They hate you because you're a pretty, insensitive, awful person. I can't even stand to look at your mouth when you talk. There is some weird collagen injection thing going on there, and you make strange faces when you are mocking everyone. It's very unattractive. Why can't models just be happy they are genetically blessed and leave everyone else alone? I guess we should all be happy that you have a horrible personality, otherwise it really would be tough for everyone else to compete.
The ladies finally decided to chime in on Courtney and give Ben the warning he needed to hear. Unfortunately, it was too little too late for Emily. She basically ruined her relationship with Ben trying to warn him about her. Even after their "spontaneous" date diving for lobster, there was nothing that could save her. He might as well have sent her out to sea then rather than make her feel even more special and more connected, only to let her go in the end anyway. It was strange to me how much time Ben spent with Rachel on the group date when he clearly didn't have a connection to her. Maybe he was just trying to make absolutely sure he didn't want to keep her, or maybe he planned to feed her to the sharks, but she would never let go of his hand. I think she knew she was a goner. Usually when you get that nervous and sick to your stomach, it's not a good sign. That's always the girl who winds up without a rose.
The one I was a bit surprised about was Nicki. I think she's sweet, but I just don't feel like they even know each other. I can only think of one time that they had a one-on-one date. How awkward will that home town date be? Nicki's parents are going to start asking all of these in-depth questions about why Ben is "falling" for their daughter, and his answers will be limited to she's cute, she's fun, and she has a turquoise bikini. "WOW. Of course you can marry my daughter. Don't even bother with a second date." I have a hard time believing that she will make it to the end. Sadly, I think it will be Kacie B. and Courtney in the end. I don't have anything against Lindzi, I just think her parents are clearly nuts to spell her name that way and crazy is genetic. You don't want to pass that along to your children. For your sake and ours Ben, pick Kacie B. and try to be one of the few "Bachelor" couples that make it!
