While this post is titled “Top 10 Moments of The Bachelor,” it could have easily been titled “More Reasons Why I Hate Courtney (and a few other awkward moments of this episode).” Let’s get to it.
10. Malibu Barbie is highly emotional, sent home early.
In an odd 1-on-1 conversation, Samantha asks where her relationship is going with Ben, and he calls her “highly emotional” and sends her home early. I was totally bummed because Samantha was actually one of my favorite people on this season. According to Reality Steve, there is some speculation about her having an affair with a married producer, but I think she’s too sweet. Anyway, if it’s true, it would definitely be a good explanation of why Ben was so heartless when letting her go.
9. Emily gets her roots did by Blakeley.
If I had to trust someone with doing my roots in the house, I don’t think Blakeley would be my first choice. Just sayin’.
8. Blakeley is ghetto, dance moves support this theory.
Stomping. Not necessarily the sexiest dance move.
7. Emily outs Courtney, Ben’s penis overrules.
Poor Emily. She had good intentions by wasting her precious one-on-one time with Ben to let him know that Courtney is not here for the right reasons, and is a bit two-faced. As a token of thanks, Ben tells Emily this will end in her own demise. As Patti Stanger would say, Ben’s picker is a bit off.
6. Casey S. wins the Dumbest Girl in the House Award.
It pains me to say this, considering us Kansas girls tend to stick up for one another. But Casey – seriously…. Courtney is the most generous person in the house? Did the producers pay you a ton of money to stick up for her? (hey, $5k can definitely cover a down payment on a house in Kansas). We don’t blame you, but COME. ON.
5. Courtney refuses to say “yes” or “of course.”
Listen sweetheart, when Ben asks you if you will accept this rose, saying, “I do” isn’t sending him some cryptic subliminal message that you’re the one. It’s cheesy and lame. I hate you.
4. You guys have got it all wrong – Courtney is a nice person.
I’m willing to hear people out if they have a differing opinion, but Courtney trying to convince us she’s actually nice? Laughable. Especially after this epic quote: “I’m a nice person, don’t f*** with me. I want to shave her eyebrows off.” You’re right – we’ve got it all wrong about you.
3. Courtney is better than you, Part I. She’s had a lot of boyfriends.
The reason this whole experience is so difficult for Courtney is not because she has such strong feelings for Ben, but in fact it’s because she’s “always had boyfriends” and she’s not used to being with a lot of girls all the time. Wasn’t she just complaining a few weeks ago about how no guys in LA are worthy of her attention? What boyfriends is she even talking about?
2. Courtney is still better than you, Part II. She was just in Puerto Rico.
What kind of ungrateful, spoiled brat would dare blurt out to Ben that she was just in Puerto Rico 2 months ago? How, HOW, can he still not see this??
1. Courtney failed to anticipate that the Charlie Sheen jokes wouldn’t be funny by the time this season aired.
Hey Courtney, the whole “WINNING” thing isn’t funny anymore. Apparently while on your mini-vacation away from Twitter and the rest of society, you’ve failed to realize that the whole Charlie Sheen thing was only funny for about 24 hours. You lose.
That is all. Stay tuned for more reasons why I hate Courtney, guaranteed to be an ongoing theme this entire season.
BONUS MOMENT: Ben can ride horses.
