Top 10 Moments of The Bachelor: The Fantasy Dates
Helicopter, Picnic, Dinner, Hot Tub.
Was anyone else bored out of their mind on this date? It was basically just 20 minutes of Nikki talking.
I did enjoy Ben hooting like an owl off the cliff at the end, and Nikki screaming woooooo like a drunk college girl in response.
9. Ben wants to have 4 kids and Nikki will have them like, tomorrow
I cringed as she awkwardly washed him with bubbles in the hot tub and became some sort of aggressive sex monster in about 5 seconds – giving us a clear indication of what happened the rest of the night.
8. Ben is terrified of rappelling
So yeah, Ben totally FREAKED OUT when he found out what they were doing on this date ….when really, the activity basically consisted of some slow swinging from ropes and kissing all the way down. Lindzi may have said ‘oh my god’ somewhere around 17 times, but at least she appeared to be brave about it.
I kind of felt sorry for Lindzi too — compared to Nikki and Courtney’s Swiss picnics – her date was way more extreme and not nearly as romantic.
But at least they found a romantic hot tub (surprise!) in someone’s backyard afterwards.
7. Lindzi doesn’t typically go home with guys but………
Sidenote: Is she wearing underwear?
6. Ben & Courtney continue to be annoying together
These two deserve each other. Hey Cow sounds like a miserable. pointless game — and the cows were clearly NOT amused.
5. Later that night, Ben buys Courtney’s fake apology and completely forgives her
4. Kacie flys to Switzerland to
try and get Ben back warn him about Courtney
She’s back and she means business in that leather coat. Did ABC fly her all the way to Switzerland just for this?? It was so obvious she just wanted to see him again, and he wasn’t really listening to anything she was saying. How embarrasing for her. I hope these 2 have a nice long chat at Women Tell All…..
3. The Classic Hallway Meltdown
This was ALMOST as good as the time Ali Fedotowsky did the same thing after attempting to get Jake back.
2. Ben’s bowtie
Hideous. He looks like a physics professor.
1. Emily goes on her “first date” with………….Ashley Hebert and Ali Fedotowsky
I can’t believe Emily is taking advice from these two: Ashley, ABC’s 3rd choice and arguably the worst Bachelorette of all time, and Ali, the recently dumped also ex-Bachelorette who is currently failing at her new mission in life, living solely on her reality tv fame (which is just mostly just InTouch covers at this point).
Emily, stay away from these two, you are in such a better league than them! I think we all agree that Emily’s season is going to restore the Bachelorette franchise back to it’s golden days — pre-hometown girlfriends, pre-Bentleys, pre-immature hallway meltdowns. Back to where Jillian Harris left us off.
Does anyone else NOT go out with their girlfriends to empty movie theaters with 3D glasses on? I was so embarrassed for Emily when this happened. I wonder how much Titanic 3D paid for this blatant product placement.
Also, another highlight of the date: Did anyone else know that Ashley wasn’t really physically attracted to her now-fiance, JP, the night she met him? Thanks for letting him (and America) know about that, Ashley! I’m sure that burned a little.
