Courtney Robertson’s Bachelor Blog: Episode 2

Hola Bachelor nation! Who’s in love with the new season as much as I am? After watching the first episode last week, I am officially hooked. I must say it brings back a lot of memories, good and bad. But hey, it’s a new year and by the looks of it there’s a new villain. Tierra, honey, buckle up. Looks like you’re in for a bumpy ride. I blame the first impression rose, maybe she got a little wind beneath her wings, or that possibly made the girls instantly hate her, either way things aren’t always what they seem. Having been through it, I will be watching this season with an open mind, with no judgment. One thing’s for sure, fans will not be disappointed this year. Completely blown away by Sean, they picked the perfect man for the job! I can tell this is going to be one of the best seasons in Bachelor history!

Episode two is off to a great start and definitely does not disappoint. Let’s get the party started with a shirtless Sean lifting weights and showering. Who doesn’t appreciate a little eye candy? I can hear the comments from boyfriends watching with their girlfriends across the nation…OH come on? Call me perverted but I hope shirtless Sean is a trend this season. But anyway, back to the romance of it all. Here comes the first date card. Chris Harrison walks in and says it best. “Sean is fantastic, and probably one of the most sincere bachelors we’ve ever had on the show,” after watching I have to say I completely agree. The first date card is read. “Sarah are you ready to fall in love today?” This date is a great first look at how sincere Sean really is, and you can tell he really likes Sarah a lot already. There’s nothing like a good free fall from a building to bond two people. Also listen for Sean’s scream on the way down. Pretty darn cute! Sarah is left feeling like Sean is the perfect guy for her and that this was the biggest dream come true of her life. If that doesn’t make you feel warm and fuzzy then I don’t know what will. So proud of her for taking the leap of faith, she’s going to go far this season. Beautiful, strong, and brave!

The dreaded group date, a competition photo shoot for the cover of three romantic novels. Miss Tierra doesn’t exactly seem thrilled, but she still has her confidence…starting out. Cute Katie says it best, “going on a group date with thirteen other women is not an ideal first date.” I’ve gotta give it to Kacie B, for coming back for round two, very brave of her! Like she said she’s much smarter the second time around, but is she already in the friend zone? Kristy is overly excited for the photo shoot, but ultimately proves she knows how to move in front of the camera. Way to steam things up and win the competition…in her words: VICTORY! Selma is a complete joy to watch, and so likable. Tierra seems to be breaking down by the end of the day, but keeps a brave face. Way to go girls you survived your first group date, one of many!

The last one on one date goes to Desiree. Sean pulls a prank at an art gallery to see how Desiree responds to being accused of breaking a million dollar piece. You can tell it’s making him uncomfortable to watch, a perfect sign that he cares about her already, and that he’s a good guy. Sean invites her back to his place for a little hot tub and light conversation. I think this is the first time we really hear what Sean’s looking for in his future wife. Desiree seems to agree that she wants to marry her best friend but then again she’s agreed with everything he has said all night.

Before the rose ceremony Sean takes the time to love up the girls that didn’t get a date this week. It’s fun to see him realize how many girls who could potentially be a connection. I also loved watching his conversation with Lindsay. She says she’s looking to marry her best friend too, such a coincidence. We see Amanda sitting there quietly, while the other girls talk about her. Can’t help but wonder what’s going on in her head. I never sat around talking about the other girls; I just took my frustrations out in the interview room. But it’s happening again, clicks are being formed and it’s interesting for me to see Kacie B in the center of it all. I hope these girls don’t make the mistake of getting caught up in the house drama. Goodbye to Diana and Brooke, those beauties won’t have trouble finding love. I do feel for Sean, he has a lot of great women to choose from. This is definitely going to make for one interesting season.

  2. Courtney! I loved you on Ben’s season! You were so entertaining and funny, it wouldn’t have been the same without you. I want you (and or Jaclyn) as the Bachelorette! Forget haters, you’re my cup of tea!

    Comment by Bex — January 16, 2013 @ 12:00 pm

  3. Yay! Happy you’re blogging – will be fun to see your point of view! And hopefully some under-the-radar jabs at Ben. I believe I spotted one above with the ‘sincere’ comment. ;-) In my opinion, he’s no catch!!

    Comment by Beth — January 16, 2013 @ 12:03 pm

  4. Courtney,

    I can’t tell you how pleasantly surprised I was to see you blogging. I hope you don’t mind that I say that it’s incredibly brave of you, and I’m really impressed. I wished so much that the women at the tell-all would have given you (in my opinion) a much needed hug. I’m guessing that some of them, in retrospect, wish that they had.

    I am really, really looking forward to hearing what you have to say as the season progresses. PLEASE continue to share your unique perspective.

    Bravo and hug.

  5. Courtney,

    So thrilled to see your blog and see you out-and-about with some of the bachelor alums! I know your experience with the show is unique. Not only did you get the villain edit, you also “won”. (Sorry, poor choice of words! *she laughs*) Nothing like getting a few skid marks from being run over by a bus with the final rose!

    You have proven yourself to be so much more than what was shown on Ben’s season. You really are a lovely person and it’s good to see your happiness. And getting Arie’s vote of approval… all the sweeter!

    I’ll also be looking forward to your blog – particularly to learn a little more about what it is like to get sucked into the drama or being the target of conflict. BTW, I’m “tat….” on twitter. So you kinda’ already know me!


    Comment by Teri — January 16, 2013 @ 12:21 pm

  6. So what’s the haps with you and Ben? You and Arie? I read where you felt you’d been “brainwashed”. Is that accurate? I do respect that you faced the angry chorus at the end; big props for that.

    Comment by Richard — January 16, 2013 @ 12:24 pm

  7. On more than one occasion you have stated that your experience with the Bachelor Franchise was negative in every sense of the word. You said that with the exception of a couple of friends you made you were ready to put it all behind you and move on. Now you are being interviewed at the Bachelor mansion, writing a blog, and for awhile, dating someone from the franchise.It seems a little hypocritical to be so involved with the Bachelor when you had nothing but negative things to say about it. I guess what Chris Harrison says is right; people who go on this show, no matter how they are dipicted, have a hard time letting go of the fame. This is not a criticism but rather a question as to why on earth you would continue to promote a francise that in you own words put you through hell.

  9. Courtney, I was pleasantly surprised by your blog! You are a very natural writer and you have a good flow! You also do a good job of recapping the episode without judging people or being insulting! Good job! I can’t wait to read your next blog! :)

    Comment by Beth — January 16, 2013 @ 12:45 pm

  10. Hiya Cindy, songleader,

    Just saying hello to you fellow fans. :-) …and a quick “in my opinion”: If I were perceived to be a villain by an entire world of Bach fans, I would take the chance to change some minds. I can’t imagine what it would be like to go into the grocery store, or to get my hair cut, etc.

    It’s also possible that it’s cathartic to watch a new season unfold.

    Finally, I think Chris may have been specifically referring to another bach chica when he said that.

    Not defending anything, just wanted to share.

    With a very sincere OX to you – XO!

    Comment by Jen15 — January 16, 2013 @ 12:53 pm

  11. ugh. no one likes you. please go away faster than yours and bens relationship.

    Comment by you suck — January 16, 2013 @ 1:40 pm

  12. oh and you “blame the first impression rose” on Tierra’s piss poor attitude. You both are selfish snotty bitches who think the world revolves around you. Please continue to defend her because you know if you talk bad about her it would be admitting how awful you truly were. you both are a disgrace.

    Comment by you suck — January 16, 2013 @ 1:43 pm

  13. Thanks for all the nice comments guys! Happy to see a few enjoyed it. Have a great day! I’ll check back later. Xx

  14. Thrilled to see your blog!! I think you handled all the crap with dignity. Like a lady. Your blog is informative and fun.

    Best wishes.

    I wanted to say that your behavior post show should be an example to all. Quiet dignity. Shows brains and class.

    Comment by Lyn — January 16, 2013 @ 4:10 pm

  15. Hey Courtney – who would you say is WINNING! right now? Heh…

    Comment by Tiffany — January 16, 2013 @ 6:03 pm

  16. Glad to read your positive and enthusiastic blog about this season. The past is the past, all I’m here for is entertainment so how you behaved on your season is neither here nor there. I will gladly read your opinions and perspective on this show, because you have had a unique experience, and we don’t have to be best friends for me to appreciate your writing.

    Comment by BSheer — January 16, 2013 @ 7:12 pm

  17. Courtney,
    So nice to see you blogging! I will admit I was not a fan of yours when you were on The Bachelor. But having seen your grace, dignity, personality and demeanor over the last year I must say I have changed my opinion of you.
    I really, really like you and I think you’re a wonderful person.
    Great blogging… can I just ask that you give your opinion and thoughts a little more instead of just doing a recap?
    You gave a few opinions… try to make it a little more personal.

    I admire you for blogging and the way you’ve handled yourself!

  20. Love your clever writing and non-judgemental perspective!! Loved you on the show and so happy to see your blogging!!

    Comment by Vanessa — January 16, 2013 @ 11:45 pm

  21. OMG Courtney..well isn’t this a nice surprise. Figured you were over the bachelor franchise, but I’m glad you are blogging. You were just too nice in this blog;) You’re known as the villain from your season, so you can make fun of people more in this blog. Its more fun for us to read:). I liked you as a villain & some of the stuff you said cracked me up! Like when you said “Models don’t have to over accessorize, they are naturally beautiful” Ha. They were just so shocked you said something like that to was hilarious to watch. It is entertaining to watch someone who doesn’t care to censor herself & will just say what she feels:)

    Next week less recap, more poking fun:) XO,Blair

    Comment by Blair — January 17, 2013 @ 12:30 pm

  22. You were my favorite on Ben’s season. I loved your style, attitude, humor and confidence. Anyone who “doesn’t like you” is just jealous :)

    Comment by Paige — January 18, 2013 @ 8:52 am

  23. Great blog, well written and so right!!! I think getting the first rose right out of the car should tell a girl Sean is REALLY into her. That’s never been done before. It’s clear Sean is REALLY into Tierra. I don’t like that her claws are coming out. That always happens to the front running girls. She’s probably the prettiest girl in the group. We’d like to see her sit back and go with the flow. Every time Sean talks to Tierra he lights up and talks to her in a long term manner. I think they’d make a beautiful couple. I hope her claws don’t ruin it for her. I thought Sarah and Sean make a cute couple and liked his connection with Leslie also. I see alot of hard decisions for Sean. There’s alot of good matches for him to chose from.

    Comment by Shawna — January 18, 2013 @ 9:15 am

  24. Who are your favorites so far?

    LOL, yes Desiree did agree with everything he said all night. All the girls do. I want to see someone challenge him more. Robyn did one attempt, but.
    I liked Leslie this episode, she’s a little different from the other girls, a little tougher in a way. Selma and Catherine are gorgeous.

    Btw you were so funny and entertaining on Ben’s season so I hope you bring even more of our funny side to these blogs. And hope that people stop with negative comments, it’s so unnecessary!

    Comment by SJ — January 19, 2013 @ 2:46 am

  25. Great job on the blogging, love your sense of humor and look forward to next weeks blog!

    Comment by Caroline — January 19, 2013 @ 6:14 pm

  26. Yay! So glad your blogging! Trying not to sound like a kiss ass but I have to admit, your one of my fave bachelor girls ever. I defended you so much because I felt everyone that judged you were hipocrites from the women in the house to the viewers. I thought many of the women of your season were very catty especially towards blakeley and shawntel!so that is why I didnt get why you were the only one villified. Maybe you stood out cause your comments were actually funny. That season wouldve been a snoozefest without you. I felt a few people shouldve apologized for their behavior not just you and couldnt believe at the women tell all how it was just on you to apologize so they could all band together and feel morally superior. I know this blog is about Seans season but just had to get that out. Look forward to your future posts.

  29. Super glad Courtney is blogging! She was the most entertaining person on bens season and the ONLY reason I could finish watching it!

    Comment by Cy — January 22, 2013 @ 3:16 am

  30. I forgot to comment on this nugget>> But it’s happening again, clicks are being formed and it’s interesting for me to see Kacie B in the center of it all.
    ** Episode 3 she shine through…I can clearly forgive you Courtney of all you ever said bad about is 100% clear she is a troublemaker, and goes into (clicks) episode 3!! EPISODE 3 and she is already on the assault to downgrade women in the house..So happy Sean through her and sent her packing even called her crazy… Ohh if only Emily Obrain was on this season.. you’d have full redemption Courtney!

    Comment by Cy — January 22, 2013 @ 5:01 am

  31. Anyone with a sarcastic sense of humor and an off color personality can be portrayed as a bitch or a weirdo on this show. Also, everything is magnified. I would probably go crazy without my cell-phone, trying to think about only one person that everyone I’m surrounded with is also dating. You didn’t have crazy freak outs on the show– you made some snarky comments that were usually funny and were confident in your connection with the guy you were there for (and SHOULD have been, because obviously he made no secret of it that he was consistently more into you than anyone else). Anyway, glad to see you writing a blog! You come across as one of the more articulate, intelligent and self-assured women in Bachelor franchise history. I’ll be checking back for upcoming blogs :)

    Comment by Katlyn — January 22, 2013 @ 2:51 pm

  32. Cliques, not clicks.

    Courtney? Really? Scraping the bottom of barrel now? Some people really have no idea when to say when….ZZZZZzzzzzz

    Comment by spellingnazi — February 3, 2013 @ 2:35 pm

  33. Hi, Courtney.
    I’m very interested in you. I dig you, Blakeley Shea Jones, Jennifer Fritsz and Lindzi (though I don’t see much connection between her and Ben) on Ben’s season. You’re unique, definitely different from most of those girls. You’re independent and spontaneous. You seize the moments. You do what most chicks are hypocritical about. It’s very rare that’s why I dig your style. I wanna see you as a whole without all those editing replays that don’t let you the lights of day for a long time. However I haven’t seen Bachelor season 17 yet. Just checking in on how you guys who have watched feel about it. I only heard about Tierra’s antics, eyebrows and sparkles. Also a bit about how Sean wasn’t yet over Emily (WTF!?! I hope it’s not true because if so… oh poor Sean… bless the women.) I’ve seen Sean a bit on Emily Maynard’s season. Didn’t make it very far because as times go on, I can’t stand Miss Emily. She’s so judgmental and prissy. But from here, it looks like he’s getting more edges and is really pretty darn hot and so do his suitors. Your blog is neat. I shall keep up.
    Keep on blogging

  34. hello Crist, you should be more careful in choosing the men that go to the program because many are gay and want to go back to the other program, this guy touches his hair more then her, he is totally mannered, all he wants is fame. ,he got to the end with excuse to make it to the next season. if you make a gay bachelor he will then get happily married.
