David Good’s Bachelor Blog: Episode 7

Ben’s Bachelor Blog Episode #6

There are 6 lucky ladies left and they are headed to Belize!  The place they are staying looks really nice and relaxing.  Who else wants Chris Harrison’s job right now?

First date card is with Lindzi and the all the girls’ jealousy is really starting to show.  Nicki is pretty upset and says, “I guess I know now that things are getting real” while crying the whole time.  You could tell that nobody was happy when Ben came to get Lindzi even though they like her.  Feelings are real and can’t be hid from this point on out.

On Lindzi and Ben’s date they are jumping out of a helicopter into The Blue Hole in the middle of the ocean and Linz is freaking out.  It’s a spot off shore surrounded by coral and in the middle is 500ft straight down, hence The Blue Hole.  She is scared of heights so this is super hard for her but she finally gets up the nerve and they jump together.  That would be so fun to do together.   Just think, “Hey hon.”  “Yes dear?” “You wanna fly over a 500ft deep water hole in a helicopter and jump out together?” “Yes dear.”  “K-love you.”

Dinner is on a dock in the moonlight.  They are talking about hometown dates.  To me it seems like she is not into it very much.  Did anyone else think that?  She says she wants to take him home to meet her family though.  I don’t know.  I honestly just don’t see it.  Not because I love her but I really just don’t.

Ben pulls out a bottle, pen and paper.  They are going to write a fairytale and draw a picture then send it off in the ocean.  That would be kind of cool to find one of these bottles at the beach and read another person’s letter.  It would be super embarrassing if one of your boys found you and your girl’s letter and picture though.   If I found one of my friend’s I would frame it and make him hang it up in his house.

Emily and Ben’s date is next.  Courtney says that she hopes Emily gets sent home.  That really is not that mean.  I am sure at this point every time a girl is on date everyone hopes they get sent home.

Emily and Ben go on a bike ride down the shoreline.  This is a very relaxing date and actually one where you could really get to know each other well.   I love those dates.  They then decide to go diving for lobster to catch their dinner.  Awesome!  This stuff is so cool and I think more people should do it.  #Different

Courtney is really upset back in the house about Emily and Ben going on the date and getting along.  She says she might be leaving because Ben has not stuck up for her about what Emily said about Courtney to him.  That is taking it a bit far I think and is just kind of weird to me.

At dinner Emily extends a formal invitation for Ben to come to her hometown and meet his family.  I think they get along really well and make a good couple.  I don’t think we get to see a lot of how funny she is on this show.

Courtney gets the next date card and is flaunting it like such a pompous asshole.  This girl is unreal.  I can’t even say anything good about her.  I can’t think of one thing I like about her personality.  Maybe her competitiveness but even that is jaded by the way she acts.  Kacie is so upset with Courtney and says “it took every fiber in my body not to spring across the room and punch her in the face!”  WOW!  Those are really strong words coming from her.

Courtney and Ben head to eat dinner on top of a Mayan temple!  I feel like that was a waste of a good date because this girl does not appreciate what she is getting to see and do!  Frustrates me.  This is a temple that is probably dated 1000 BC and you can only think about your tiny little self and mind and are not soaking in the history around you.  Waste.

At lunch Courtney says, “she has lost the spark” with Ben.  Ben pours his heart out to her and says that he really likes her and says she is “unique.”  Hilarious.  If a girl said I was “unique” I would probably laugh out loud.  That is like calling me slow and patting my head then maybe pinching my cheek.

Back in the house the group of girls are just bashing Courtney.  They said she is “a black widow” and will ultimately dig her own grave because of how fake she is.  My instincts want me to stick up for her but I simply can’t.  I don’t like what I have seen about her at all.

At dinner Ben is really pouring his heart out to her.  She has him so whipped.  I feel like that might have been Ben’s “first time” in the ocean with her or something the way he is acting.

Courtney is telling Ben how the other girls in the house suck and how they treat her bad.  This is laughable.  Ben expresses to her his concern about her not getting along with other girls in the house.  She gets pretty defensive.  I think I just heard half of America going “it’s about time you see this!”

Next is the group date with Kacie, Nicki and Rachel.  Ben wakes the 3 girls up at 4am!  OHH I bet they are real happy about that.  I have a feeling I already know who is going home on this date.  Not going to say any names but she is blonde, tall and her name is Rachel.

Ben takes the 3 girls on a boat and they are going SHARK DIVING!  Not going to lie I would be scared of that but would have to do it to say I did it.

Rachel is freaking out!  The sharks are pretty big actually.  The other girls are not worried at all.  Kacie actually says, “I am not scared of the sharks near as much as I am scared of the way Rachel is monopolizing Ben.”  Hahaha.  Girls are crazy…just crazy.

I would feel so weird having all these girls tell me they are falling in love with me and me not saying anything back to them like he is.

HAHAHAHAH… The evil one says something so mean but made me laugh.  Courtney says, “Kacie is not a threat to me. She is like a little girl in a little boys body.”  I laughed pretty hard just because if anyone said that I would laugh not because it’s true.  I love Kacie and think she has a great body.

At dinner the three girls bring up Courtney to Ben.  They tell him about how they don’t feel she is there for the right reasons.  How does everyone feel about this?  Is this ok or not for them to do that?

The mood at the Rose Ceremony is “somber” as Rachel put it.  Tension is very high.  Courtney is just saying the weirdest stuff at the ceremony.  She is just awful to watch and the stuff that comes out of her mouth is appalling.   I have to give the other girls credit for keeping it together and not snapping on her because you can see on their faces they want to.  I kind of hope he keeps her around just so we can see what web/nest raised her.

Been cuts the Rose Ceremony short and says he already knows what he wants and is ready.  Ben asks to speak to Courtney and pulls her away from the group for a min.  He wants to know if she is there for the right reasons.  She reassures him she is by mesmerizing him like a little boy who just found out what his penis is.

Wow.  Wow.  Wow.  I had a feeling Rachel was going home but he is sending Emily home over Courtney!?  I wonder what the other girls in the house are thinking right now that had that talk with him!  Pure confusion on all their faces right now.

This will make next week so much better though!  See you then.  Have a good week!

Courtney is a spider woman! Did you see the way she communicated with that tarantula!  That’s not normal.  If I am walking along and see a granddaddy long-leg I freak out.  She walks up on a hairy big red tarantula and whistles at it and it crawls up her arm kisses her on the lips and goes about its day.  Devil spider woman for sure!



  1. Is it ok for the women to warn Ben about Courtney? Hell yes! It is Women Code to do so. When we love and care about someone, we will protect them from whatever is evil and harmful. This is how we love our friends, family, husbands and children, etc. Men love differently. They are physically protective but emotionally free. Men believe in letting people find out on their own.

  2. Hehehe you make such great points! I really enjoyed your blog :) can’t wait to see what next week has in store !

  3. I absolutely agree with you on everything Dave! I always try to give everyone a fair chance to redeem themselves, but Courtney keeps getting worse. I have NO respect for her. Ben is def whipped. I feel bad for the other girls there. They dont deserve to be there with a Bachelor who is already hung up on a devil woman. To me, I think big red flags would be up considering Courtney gets along with no one in the house. Just sayinnn ;)

  4. Haha seriously I am way over watching Courtney and her little wierd faces!! I just cannot believe they way she jumps around at the rose ceremony when he calls her. I loved it when one of the other ladies says something to the effect of, “I would like to see her bounce on her way home like she does when he gives her a rose.” Me.Too. I keep thinking the producers are playing it up big time to make us worried that he will pick her and then pull the switch and he sends her home. I’m starting to realize that may not be what’s going on here. Sad! I just don’t see her committing to being with someone for life, and gasp, dare I say, raising a child?? Who would want her to raise your child? Yikes! Well thanks for the good read and have a wonderful week!

  5. Great blog, everyone is wondering how the criticism could be so negative toward Ben, he is thinking with the head between his legs period. I am really wondering how he feels watching this and truly seeing how she behaves behind his back. No respect for him after the way he has treated everyone else on this season. He did not even walk the two girls out last night, that was bad.

    Comment by Roberta — February 14, 2012 @ 2:05 pm

  6. Absolutely, the girls did the right thing by warning Ben. They’re just trying to save him some heartache down the road. Not that he’ll listen though. On the other hand, I don’t think it will have much of an effect. It may plant some seeds in his mind, but he’s so taken with her that he’ll believe Courtney over anyone else. I think it’s funny that you started out the season defending Courtney, trying to see her side, but now you admit how indefensible she is!

    Comment by Kim — February 14, 2012 @ 2:56 pm

  8. Courtney with the spider seemed like pure acting to me… not a love of little critters… she’s a model and she has to be able to suck it up whatever the situation.

  9. I love the way you call out Ben for acting like a douche bag. I feel like everyone always talks about Courtney and how evil she is. Yes, Courtney crazy and all she ever talks about is the other girls and herself, and never about the man that she is supposedly interested in. However, Ben is so incredibly stupid for not seeing through her. In general, I don’t think he has a winning personality and everything about him rubs me the wrong way. I don’t really understand what all these women see in him.

    I think it was fine that they all told him that they don’t like Courtney. If they feel strongly about something, then they should be honest about it. I don’t like the way he reacted when Emily brought it up to him. He basically threatened her and told her not to say anything about his precious Courtney or he would send her home…and in my opinion, that is exactly why he ended up sending her home. Courtney has him pussy whipped and he will do anything to please her. Even if it means sending home a classy, intelligent, beautiful woman who he seemed to have a connection with.

  10. I don’t think it matters at this point whom Ben picks if anyone because there is not one thing that screams to me that Ben is even there for a long term relationship. Its all about the score with Courtney.. no real deep feelings there & Ben is terrible at communicating really anyways.. Very cold & close off..least romantic due I have even watched on the Bachelor. UGH.

  11. Watching Ben and Courtney is like watching Jake and Vienna all over again. These guys don’t understand if someone can’t be at least civil to the people they are living with now when the cameras rolling, they’ll most likely not be pleasant to live with in other settings. I like to pay attention to how the girls get along. The ones who can be at least civil most of the time with the other girls probably have the best outlook for a happy marriage someday. Its all about making it work.

  12. As usual, great blog David!!! I absolutely love the way you think!!!

    Comment by Kristi — February 14, 2012 @ 8:31 pm

  13. Dave, You are spot on. This is such a game for the spider wench. It’s all about “winning” and that is the
    key card for her. But how about this scenerio; Her and Ben get together and they are at a family gathering and Bens mother approaches the spider wench about how she is behaving around the family, that her behavior is inappropriate and spider wench tells mom “Screw you, wouldn’t want to be you” “I’m the winner and you’re a loser” “kill shot”. Yeah Ben, I can see why you would want her. Daddy would be really proud of a daughter in law like that. She is the definition of : “white trash”
    yuk!!!!!!!!!!! She makes me want to puke. But on the flip side. I think if he proposes to her, she just going to laugh and turn around and walk away;;;; see ya, wouldn’t want to be ya. I’m the winner and I don’t even want the prize….

    Comment by Deb — February 14, 2012 @ 11:26 pm

  14. Well, I endured 7 episodes of this show. And why? COURTNEY! i love her! Best chick ever..and she even has Vienna beat..cause Vienna was just hideous to look at. Courtney is eye candy.
    I don’t really care who the Bachelor picks cause 96.5% odds they wont ‘live happily ever after’. So I view the show as from a perspective of will they have great love-sex-and fun after the final rose..And I DO think Courtney and Ben will. I mean look at Dave here for example..him and Natalie hit it off..likely had fun on the show and after..but they are NOT together..but I think they had a great time in the moment. Thus same as Ben and C.
    Also all this love talk..Come on! It aint love but ‘caught up in the moment’ They “Nicki-Kacie B” are caught up in the moment of the process of this show. 100% sure if Ben picked them at the end of the day would result in the same as if he picked Courtney or Lindzi. side-note- If Jenna that might lead to Ben having his wiener cut off.
    So we can’t take this show serious on a quest for love. The girls spend 6 weeks with the bachelor..but in that time maybe have 7 dates total with him.. Sorry but on the same lines thats like a normal couple who spend 2 weeks together “4 dates on two weekends and maybe a date-night on a weekday. What man ask a women to marry him in two weeks?
    I just hope Ben gets laid, has fun and enjoys the time.

  15. Quote: They tell him about how they don’t feel she is there for the right reasons. How does everyone feel about this? Is this ok or not for them to do that?
    Unmm how about you and Juan? You told said many times in the show he is NOT there for the right reasons..Also you said that on Men tell All. And i am sure if 2-3 other guys would have joined you to tell Jillian you would have in 1 second told her of Juan.
    I dont feel anything bad about this. Sisters, friends I think have a ‘right’ to share view points of the partner I am dating ..Ben is a grown man and can take it all in and then decide. This is not about ratting out..but more of just telling him that people act around you good and around others bad..it is really just a sort of constructive criticism. Ratting out is like what tanner P did on his season to Wes. i disagree with tanner..that was not his place. This is a different senerio.

    Comment by charles — February 15, 2012 @ 6:16 am

  17. You know…you said in your recap that Courtney didn’t appreciate the Mayan Temple but instead was talking about herself but you have to realize we are only getting a tiny bit of the footage that only the producers want us to see. All dates are edited to death including this one. I’m sure Ben and Courtney talked alot about the Temple but we don’t see that. This show is sooo twisted up and edited…I have noticed that the voice overs are put in exactly the spot they want, to make you think it’s said at that exact moment. It’s hilarious really!

    I do want to say that I heard Blakely on a radio interview that this show deprives them of t.v., magazines and any contact with anyone except Ben and the other girls and they’re constantly feeding them adult beverages…Wow…what a freaking bubble they’re in!
    So…no wonder some of these girls “bad side” comes out. It’s really all about the ratings…and I try to remember that while watching.

    Comment by Stacy — February 15, 2012 @ 7:45 am

  18. No one has mentioned (in their blog) about Courtney’s comment back at the hotel while the 3 girls were on the group date. She said “They’ve been gone a while, I bet he’s really tired cuz we kinda had a late night last night” as she smirks at the other 2 girls. That was def. one of her more obnoxious comments and I thought there would be some mention of it.

    Comment by AVLCutie45 — February 15, 2012 @ 9:06 am

  19. i respect courtney for standing up for what she believes in (right or wrong) and making ben work for her. all the other girls are doing whatever they can to please ben. emily maynard did the same thing – she made brad prove himself to her and that he was worthy of coming into her life.

    and courtney is pretty damn funny. she may be mean, but at least she has kept this show interesting this season. these girls are all boring! thank god she is the WINNER (winning lol) and we get to enjoy her antics to the end.

    oh and the tarantula – that was so obviously staged. everything on this show is.

    Comment by kate — February 15, 2012 @ 4:21 pm

  20. Courtney is something else. She is so much like a lot of women are,back stabbing and fake. She just does her back stabbing by breaking the rules of the show instead of using words. Breaking the rules,Ben is so honest? I don’t think she wants Ben at all,she wants the air time because she is a model. I figured that one out on the second airing of this season. Watch the hair thing…always making sure it is out of her face and her whole profile is showing. The things she says staged or not are just plain cocky…she is by far NOT the prettiest one on this season. Model or Not. Ben is not on the show to work for the girls,they are on the show to work for him, in a lady like fashion. What do you think Ben’s Mom and Sister thinks of Courtney? I am sure they watch every show. I don’t think the girls are boring at all. They are down to Earth and ready for a working relationship, yet some adventure with Ben. He has made it clear what his life will be,it is not all travel and glamour. Ben is a working Man. There are only two Woman on this season that, I think already loves Ben and I hope he feels their heart and hears their words. They would be the two most like Mom and Sister(the most important women in Ben’s Life) Courtney is not one of them. Even if she was not cocky, I don’t see her getting dirty from a hard days work? She works in a studio under a fan. Can’t wait until the next show! You’ll have a Great Day!

  21. Ben has shown himself to be the most immature “Bachelor” ever. His jr. high school mentality is on full display with all things Courteney. He’s another one that never learned the rule-if one person has a problem with another, it’s probably a personality conflict….if everyone has a problem with another, there IS a problem with that person! (Insert Vienna memories here.) UGGHHH!
