The Bachelor Finale and After The Final Rose

Oh man, when Ben and Courtney were sledding down the mountain, I was really wishing for an Ethan Frome outcome!

Does anyone have a link to the pictures of Ben kissing another woman?

So when are the two "winners" heading to People Magazine (or similar) to spew forth how much they love each other and want to spend eternity together?

Then what are the odds maker saying about the break up schedule? Three weeks? Two months?

I give it 2.5 months TOPS from the time they finish whoring themselves out to the magazine(s).

Two very stupid people. But they don't necessarily deserve each other. I'm sure Ben's family doesn't want anything to do with her after seeing the show aired though. Who would.

I only watched the first couple of episodes and then let them pile up on my DVR till last night. Then I just skipped them all and watched the finale and ATR cerimony. Glad I did now. Courtney was very cute, but I didn't find remotely as attractive as the fake blonde with incredibly dark roots growing out. Whatever her name was.

Anyway, a show like this is only good for entertainment purposes anyway. Only about 5-10% are going to follow through and get anywhere. Most people have realized that and I'm guessing that would explain the poor ratings they have now.

Courtney was being a little bitch because that's what she is and she wasn't planning on making it to the end. She just ruined it for herself. Women who think they are more beautiful than everybody else have their own curse to live with. And it is indeed a curse.

I guess I just view it differently then most.

Courtney seemed genuinely interested in Ben. Sure, she behaved badly with the other women. Should Ben have had pause since his only family is women? maybe, but he picked Courtney. He didn't even seem to have a lot of interest in the runner up. She didn't seem that heartbroken either.

The way I saw it, Courtney had come clean about how she acted in the house and Ben chose her anyhow. Dumping her after the fact because the press was too much seemed crappy and he should have been more apologetic for that. It looked like she was willing to take the heat off him when the tabloids were targeting him for "cheating".

I don't think shes a saint, but I think they magnified every bad choice she made. The only thing I saw that "soiled the memories" after the proposal was Ben's reactions to the public. Its not like he was blind sided by her behavior. His behavior wasn't stellar on the show either. How would you explain skinny dipping with Courtney at night to any of the other girls had he picked them?

Well, it pretty much played out exactly like I thought it would.

The heart wants what the heart wants, right? (Or other part of the body...)

I felt bad for Lindzi, she's such a nice girl. But I never felt like there was a deep connection with her. I don't mean to suggest that she's in any way a shallow person, but she did seem somehow emotionally shallow to me. I thought that even if she got dumped, she probably wouldn't cry. She was just so even and predictable the whole time. Which shouldn't really be a bad thing, but I felt like Ben kept her around as the safe, drama-free alternative when his gut was telling him to go with Courtney the whole time.

In this case, anyone who watched would be more surprised if they didn't break up. In fact, I was surprised to know they had made it this long.

It does look like Emily and Jef are still going strong though...
