Well Ben certainly couldn’t take these ladies to the Virgin Islands, so why not Puerto Rico? Once again Ben “plans” some very romantic dates for the ladies to get to know him. Whether it was shopping in the rain, playing baseball, or dumping a girl on a boat, this week’s "Bachelor" was full of unexpected surprises.
I think Courtney is an awful person, but she sure has some great one liners like, “Who knew that strippers could play baseball?” Blakely is actually a VIP cocktail waitress, not a stripper. She may know her way around the bases, but not necessarily around a pole. “Blew my panties off” was another great one that Courtney used to describe her surprise when Elyse was rejected. Apparently that’s what inspired her to tramp off to Ben’s room to show him “what it’s like to skinny dip with a model.” I imagine it’s a not like freezing your balls off while swimming with a tree branch. At least a woman with a few curves could keep the man warm.
I felt sorry for Elyse when she was rejected. I like to think that she is a classier version of Snooki. She certainly hits the gym and the tanning bed. I’m sure laundry is in there somewhere. How else is she going to keep all those spandex dresses looking sharp? Maybe it was the giant gold hoop earrings and animal print bathing suit under her little red dress that he found to be a turnoff, or maybe it was her comments about having accomplished everything she wanted to as a single women in her early 20s, but Ben was clearly over her by dinner. I think Ben’s just looking for a woman who owns a dress with more than just one shoulder.
"The Bachelor" must have gotten a bargain on helicopters this season. Those damn things seemed to pop up on every date like an eagle of death to the women that didn’t get to go on the ride. But I don’t think anything was more shocking than the moment that Ben sent Jennifer home. I just don’t understand that one. She is probably the nicest girl on the show, and Ben said several times that she was the best kisser. I was really shocked, and I don’t say that often. I thought for sure that he would send home the little tattletale Emily, but sadly it was Jennifer who left the show tonight crying in her stretch Hummer. She kept talking about how freeing it is to go skinny dipping. I guess she should have thought of that in the cave back in Park City. Maybe she’d be the one holding the rose instead of going home.
Ben said that all the women he’s loved in his life have not loved him back. Well if he doesn’t want to come home empty handed this time, he’d better start thinking with his head when he’s up to bat.
