A couple about last episode ('cause I just watched it), I am SO glad Courtney was all "see ya!" to Shawntel on the way out - because I hope Ben saw a bit of what she's really like. Also, I was hoping he gave Shawntel a rose just so Courtney would leave.
*Yeah Utah! Represent!
*Remember last episode when Courtney was like "No drama tonight!" and then she started it all? Looks like this cocktail party won't be any different.
*I want to take a tally of how many times they say "This is the perfect place to fall in love!"....for the rest of the season
*Stay strong, Kacie B! You've been so perfect so far....
*Chris' advice to use every moment to its fullest is the producers' way of saying "We need to spice things up!"
*Calm down, ladies. Most of you will have ridden a helicopter by the time you go home.
*"Get it started right"....with alcohol. To impair your judgment for the rest of the day.
*"Don't talk about the weather..." -Chris Harrison. This is not going well.
*The "why waste time on something you don't see going somewhere?" line just got you sent home.
*"This fire's hot!"
*What's that, Ben? You're looking to fall in love?! Why do they always state the obvious?
*"You want to be here." That's a good enough reason to get a rose.
*Oh, and he likes kissing her.
*"Is that Ben?" Who else would it be?
*"It's like this is all out of a movie!" Or a TV show...
*Or we could tally how many times they say, "we have a strong connection."
*"Mustard is my favorite condiment." HERE'S the 5 star convo we've been waiting for.
*I'll be honest, I think the last rose ceremony was the first time I saw Samantha. Where did she come from?
*Well, she did ask for honesty.
*He does NOT like her.
*Wow. If she hadn't interrupted him, she'd probably still be there. I do feel bad for her, she was trying to be honest, but she was just a bit too emotional for him. Which, honestly, who isn't in that scenario. Except Courtney. Who only seems to feel competition.
*EVERYBODY rubs you the wrong way, Courtney.
*When he's asking how it's going, he doesn't want to hear it's hard. He knows.
*YES! He loves Kacie B!!!!
*Keep digging your hole, Courtney
*I guess all you have to do to get a rose is be desperate and whiny. Noted.
*I like Jennifer so far. So we'll see.
*How is ABC letting them do a date in a fenced off, caged area?
*Ah, the ever-present relationship metaphors made literal.
*Yes! In-house hairdressing!
*"She seems really...normal." As opposed to...crazy?
*Why are you going to waste your time talking about another individual?" Did they really say that? Is that what you're doing?
*Jennifer seems really comfortable with him. It's cute.
*"I can't believe he did this all for me - so romantic!" Ummm, he had about 5% to do with it. Thank ABC for the other 95%.
*The blonde next to them can't stop looking at them. "OMG it's the Bachelor!"
*You know you'd be his perfect partner after your first date?
*"....And then she was the girl who got the rose." It's like she was giving him a riddle, but...it wasn't a riddle.
*Now Emily's digging her hole.
*I'm gonna go get a drink....and tell Courtney everything you said.
*Ok. So in Brad's season, it turned out Michelle wasn't really so mean and that a lot of girls actually liked her a LOT. And so I want to give Courtney the benefit of the doubt....and then she's all, "I'm nice!" But, nice people don't say, "Don't f*** with me. Don't cross me." Or laugh in other girls' faces.
*It's snowing?!? Man, I wonder how cold that water was on his date with Jennifer.
*LOL you're not sorry to go back in with all the girls. You love these women.
*Wow, more rose ceremony girls I don't recognize.
*Elyse gives the death glare to Kacie B!
*I've said it before and I'll say it again - Chris Harrison has the best job in the world.
*"It was good getting to know you." Just not good enough.
*Poor Monica. She was crazy in the first part, but she seemed really nice in the end.
*Puerto Rico! "Oh, I was there two months ago." Well then, I guess you don't need to go back now. See ya!
*I will not be surprised if a girl leaves after finding out he skinny dipped with Courtney.
