Sure, that’s the number of times I’ve been caught wearing women’s underwear, but more importantly, that’s how many generations are shown in this photo. And I think that is awesome. This one’s for you Grandpa Docs and Gigi!
So we’re down to what “Bachelor” insiders (*giggle*) like to refer to as “The Skank 3.” What does that mean? Well, it means there’s a 1 in 1 chance that all of the ladies will fein surprise and go, “Oh, there’s a fantasy suite? Well … I guess I could stay for a little bit. (Pause.) Or maybe it’s a HUGE bit?” (Then they elbow Ben.)
So buckle up your monobrows and get ready for some serious dung throwing as the remaining three “ladies” vie for the crown of Mrs. 20th of 22nd Marriage to Fail. As always, the cat fight begins at 8:00 p.m. EST sharp. See you then …
8:01 p.m. Early call: LindZZZZZeee is going home. To look for the s missing from her name.
8:02 p.m. Am I the only one who thinks the only thing more boring that Ben as the Bachelor is Emily as the Bachelorette? ABC could print fucking money if they put Courtney and Bentley on the next one. (I am making the logical assumption that Courtney will get picked and then break up with Ben 18 minutes after the cameras stop rolling.)
8:06 p.m. Oh cool. Another flashback.
8:08 p.m. Best Bachelor montage ever: Courtney’s A Bitch Compilation, No. 14.
8:19 p.m. Not to gun you down, Nicki, but I could think of about 100 places that would be better to be in love than Switzerland. Just off the top of my head …
Antigua and Barbuda
Ashmore and Cartier Islands
British Virgin Islands
Coral Sea Islands
Papua New Guinea
Saint Kitts and Nevis
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
Trinidad and Tobago
Turks and Caicos Islands
8:26 p.m. Whoa. Nicki accepted the In Tha Butt Suite invitation? I did NOT see that coming!
8:28 p.m. Nicki: “I don’t want him to have anything unanswered.” Translation: “No orifice is off limits tonight.”
8:32 p.m. A helicopter? A girl accepting the invitation to the Fantasy Suite? A date involving a girl who’s afraid of heights? This episode has EVERYTHING!*
*previous episodes had along with no discernible new ideas or concepts.
8:35 p.m. So do you think the producers just give Ben a couple of 32 oz. Gatorades and are like, “OK, now here’s LindZZZeee!”?
8:38 p.m. Could these two jokers have worn more ill-suitable footwear? Speaking of which, I can’t tell which is thicker: the leather on LindZZZeee’s boots or her makeup.
8:43 p.m. I wish the Fantasy Suite card said, “Interested in sloppy seconds?”
8:46 p.m. Is Ben going on CNN after dinner? #nicefuckingbowtie
8:48 p.m. I’ve decided that they should have Fantasy Suites starting Day One. UPSIDE: We’d be able to identify the how earlier. DOWNSIDE: Ha! Good one. There is no downside. UPSIDE NO. 2: Ben wouldn’t be able to walk for the entire second episode.
8:50 p.m. Ha! Awesome. LindZZZeee is the first this season to bust out the, “I’m not normally a skank who sleeps with a guy I’ve only been on five completely unrealistic dates with but this time is different because you’re only banging two other women that I know of.”
8:51 p.m. And that would be the voice of the baton twirler.
8:56 p.m. The only thing better than a mobile device that is in between the size of a phone and a tablet (Samsung Galaxy Note) is a regular-sized phone or tablet. Or a desktop computer. Or a Magic 8 Ball.
8:58 p.m. COURTNEY: “It’s one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been.” Better than Orlando or any of the other exotic places you’ve visited in your “modeling” career?
9:00 p.m. Why do girls continue to think the Bachelor has jack to do with anything that happens on any of the dates? Seriously, I’m betting this is how the pre-production meeting for this episode went:
PRODUCER: “OK, Ben, we’re going to take you and the ladies to Switzerland this week.”
BEN: “Cool, I love Ikea!”
9:14 p.m. This might be the first time in Bachelor history where the girl is like, “Why don’t you camera guys stick around?”
9:18 p.m. COURTNEY: “It doesn’t get much more romantic than this.” Oh how right you are, Courtney. I see lots of Netflix nights over skunked wine that couldn’t be sold to a restaurant in your future once the show is over. Wait. Who am I kidding. I see “Bachelor Pad” in your future. And I’M SO EXCITED ABOUT THAT.
9:20 p.m. How many takes do you think it took them to get that exiting the theater shot without somebody’s cooch showing? Too far? Not far enough? I’m just going to assume you voted for No. 2.
9:27 p.m. Good thinking Kacie. These things always turn out well.
9:34 p.m. Ah the irony. How many people do you think have had sex on that hotel hallway floor Kacie is lying on?
9:49 p.m. OK Ben, let’s close this lame episode with a strong finish. See if all three ladies will go to the Fantasy Suite before you make your final decision. Or, at the very least, invite Chris Harrison up there with you.
9:51 p.m. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let Chris Harrison come back out after he gives out the first rose and go, “Ladies. Ben. This is the final rose of the night.”
9:56 p.m. Tonight’s two losers.
(NOTE: It appears LindZZZeeee is looking painfully at Nicki while Courtney is thinking, “Wait. Did I remember to move my clothes from the washer to the dryer?”)
10:00 p.m. OK gang, we’ll do it again next week when one of these women makes the biggest mistake of their lives.
So we’re finally down to four. By which I mean our average IQ for watching this stupid show week after week in spite of the fact that we all know Ben will probably make a really bad choice in the end (*cough* Courtney) and be broken up by the time the finale airs. But much like the six-car pileup in the median on our way to work we can’t avert our eyes. So let’s get right to it …
8:01 p.m. I can’t wait to see the family Courtney rented from the modeling agency she supposedly works for.
8:03 p.m. I really wish Ben would have shown up on a horse of his own just to upstage LindZZZZeeee. Or better yet in a Hummer while eating a horse burger.
8:04 p.m. EARLY LEADER FOR QUOTE OF THE WEEK: “Horses have been my life since … before I was born.” — LindZZZZZeeee
8:06 p.m. I hope Ben looks into the picnic basket and goes, “OK, so I’ve got horseradish sauce, Colt 45, Philly cream cheese, and, um, let’s see, Elmer’s glue so we can make macaroni art.”
8:14 p.m. Was the dog really riding on the back of the horse cart? Wait. Were they really racing horse carts? Wait. Is LindZZZeee really calling Ben her “boyfriend”?
8:22 p.m. I just said how this episode is dragging and my wife wisely pointed out that they rarely lead with the biggest train wreck. So smart, that woman (except for the whole saying “I do” thing). I am so glad we met each other on that reality dating show. I’ve said too much …
8:26 p.m Kacie: “I’m so excited to see Ben.” My wife: “Then WHY did you wear THAT?”
8:28 p.m. I had no idea baton twirling was so intensive. Kacie B. is completely out of breath after that 18 second number.
8:28 p.m. “And after that he sold sporting goods. So he was VERY involved in the community.” Well I think that goes without saying, Kacie B.
8:29 p.m. Is Kacie B. sporting the Bill Bellichick collection?
8:38 p.m. KACIE B’S DAD: “Ben, there’s something I’ve been waiting all night to ask you.”
BEN: (Gulps) “OK.”
KACIE B’S DAD: “Would you like an O’Douls?
8:42 p.m. Kacie B’s parents are ruining any shot she might have had at being miserable with Ben for seven weeks. And just as an aside, who the hell is glad somebody has concerns?
8:44 p.m. KACIE B’S DAD-TO-ENGLISH TRANSLATOR: Eez = is; Lof = life; Mm-K = don’t make me whoop your ass on national television, gurl.
8:48 p.m. I kind of feel like Activia is missing their core demographic by advertising during “The Bachelor.” Honestly, I thought ABC only allowed Zima and Tampax commercials to run. So confused …
8:52 p.m. Holy cliche machine! I fully expect them to take a Ford F-150 to a cigarette factory from here.
9:07 p.m. Annnnnd Dad makes the same mistake twice.
9:17 p.m. I like how Courtney’s dad matched his sweater vest with the tablecloth.
9:31 p.m. $100 says Courtney is drawing a picture of herself.
9:36 p.m. Another $100 says this mock wedding would be 500 times more enjoyable their actual one.
9:41 p.m. I hope that these hometown dates taught Ben some valuable lessons. Like that drinking is wrong, horses can solve all the world’s problems, and Courtney’s baby voice is so annoying it could even get Tim Tebow to commit double homicide.
9:55 p.m. Wow. I totally though Kacie B. was going to be one of the final two. But that whole “can’t have sex until you’ve been married for 25 years” thing that her mom and dad laid out to Ben might have been a deal breaker.
10:00 p.m. Tonight’s winner of the dodged-a-huge-bullet-but-doesn’t-know-it-yet sweepstakes.
See you at the crime scene again next week …
My wife just got an iPhone (upgrading from her slightly outdated bag phone), which is great and all, but I’m a tad worried that the one parent in our house who actually paid attention to our son is now going to let things slide a bit.
Then again, maybe I’m just overreacting.
Yes, I spelled both crazy and contest with a “k” but that’s just to underscore how effing crazy everybody is on this show (I’m including the seemingly normal blonde-headed Casey who was eliminated last week because Chris Harrison convinced her she was in love with another man; “Wait. Are you SURE you aren’t in love with your old boyfriend?” [waves hand and performs Jedi mind trick] “Oh, yeah. I guess I am.”).
But we love it and for that I say let’s do this again. Hold on tight, I’m calling at least one open hand slap to the face (not sure whether it will be girl on guy or girl on girl) tonight in 3 … 2 … 1 …
8:01 p.m. As if sensing the quality of upcoming programming, my dog just audibly farted.
8:06 p.m. Six minutes in and we already have tears. This is going to be a good episode. (Not to mention my prediction is starting to look good.)
8:11 p.m. Gay tank top sighting No. 2. (Waiting on the techno version of “This Year’s Love.”)
8:13 p.m. I really hope the helicopter goes up to 15,000 feet to drop them out.
8:15 p.m. What if I want to date BOTH the next bachelor and bachelorette?
8:19 p.m. In case there are any other people out there with an IQ under 30 I just need to say this to alleviate any confusion you might have: BEN IS NOT PLANNING THESE FUCKING DATES.
8:21 p.m. Just kidding. He totally plans them all. He also comes up with all those catchy panty-droppers like, “Do you Belize in love?”
8:24 p.m. Or — and I’m just spitballing here — you two could write a note that says, “Just got laid after drinking five bottles of wine.”‘
8:29 p.m. Humira ad constructive criticism: When playing Playstation 2 you don’t have to move around.
8:33 p.m. I REALLY wanted to see a montage of Ben air balling layups.
8:35 p.m. I can only guess Ben crapped his pants because I didn’t see anything spontaneous during that interaction.
8:39 p.m. QUICK EPISODE UPDATE: Commercials geared to women thus far: 14. Commercials geared to cats: 1. Commercials geared to men: 0. Why do I feel like somebody’s trying to tell me something about my choice of programming?
8:44 p.m. Just for the record, I don’t think a smart person every gets tired of being told they’re smart. On the flip side people with a mom who made them perform a one-man play entitled, “99.99 percent effective, yeah right; thanks Trojan,” do get tired of being asked to reprise that role every Christmas when my family is in town.
8:57 p.m. 5:1 odds that Courtney has Rufinol in her ring. (“Hey Ben, what’s that over there?”)
9:01 p.m. General male observation: Women who go from depressed to giddy are DEFINITELY the kind of woman you want to marry. Assuming you are never left alone with them and/or any sharp object.
9:02 p.m. Ben, I hate to call you on this one, but I’m pretty sure “your” expression, “Oh, my, dad” is ripped off from Will Ferrell playing Jesus on SNL. (Anyone who can find a link to this awesome video please e-mail me.)
9:15 p.m. As bad as I thought last week’s episode was this one is 10 times worse. I am strongly considering switching to “Two and a Half Men.”
9:16 p.m. Just joking. I haven’t had any blunt force trauma to my head so I would throw my coffee table through the TV before I watched that show.
9:21 p.m. Gay tank top No. 3.
9:22 p.m. At risk of getting all dorky here, I’m pretty sure those are nurse sharks (not sand sharks as Captain Outdoors called them) which would rather beach themselves to watch “Jaws” than attack a human being.
9:24 p.m. OK, my high school biology teacher just called me and he said not only am I a dork but he reminded me that I also got a D in his class.
9:41 p.m. SAT QUESTION OF THE NIGHT: Krazy: Glue:: Courtney:
A. Greece’s economy.
B. A see-saw with a fat kid on one side and nobody on the other.
C. Deez ____.
D. All of the above.
9:48 p.m. SPOILER ALERT!!!
BEN: “Courtney, can I talk to you for a second?”
COURTNEY: “Smell ya later!”
BEN: “I’m not following you.”
COURTNEY: “I know you are but what am I?”
BEN: “You’re an idiot. But I’m keeping you around because you like taking your clothes off around me.”
9:53 p.m. And now the moment very few of us are still awake for …
9:58 p.m. YES!!!!!! HA HA!! YES!!!
9:59 p.m. Hard to believe this is the image of a winner.
Rachel, trust me when I tell you you came out ahead on this deal.
10:01 p.m. See you all next week. (Pause.) Don’t kid yourself. You’re gonna watch again.
