David Good’s Bachelor Blog: Episode 9

The remaining 3 girls Lindzi, Nicki and Ben are flying in a plane to Switzerland! Courtney is following close behind. She wanted to take her broom apparently and not ride with everyone else.

The first date is Nicki and Ben taking a helicopter ride over a glacier and to the top of a mountain for a picnic. Everyone on twitter is saying they are over the helicopter rides on the show. Oh how spoiled we all get! Sorry ALL THEY did was get to fly in a helicopter over the Switzerland glaciers and mountains landing on spots that you can’t get to unless you literally climb a mountain face by hand that probably 46 people have ever been to in the entire existence of mankind and yes I know this is a run on sentence but I don’t care I’m trying to make a point that what they are doing is awesome and I think the show has done a pretty good job on dates this year and even though there have been a lot of helicopter rides the views the contestants get to see in person are something most of us will never get to experience so don’t get greedy and start nitpicking. Jeez! I think Switzerland would be my top pick so far of all the places the bachelor has been to take a helicopter ride. The place is amazing!

I like Nicki a lot. She is such a sweet girl and do think they make a good couple but I just don’t think he is feeling it. I really see her getting her heart broken tonight. The big fantasy suite card comes and Nicki accepts it. Everyone always asks, “what happens on the overnight dates” and my response is exactly what you think happens.

It’s funny to me because everyone always says “gross, no way” but what do people think as adults in 2012 is going to happen. It’s not the 1940’s. You need to make sure you can be intimate with someone before you spend the rest of your life with him or her.

It’s just ignorant to buy a car you will drive the rest of your life without a test drive first.

The biggest reason I think the fantasy suite is important is if it’s a close race between who you like out of the 3, that intimate connection could be the deal breaker and one they do need to explore in my opinion. This is just my opinion and one I know I will get heckled over because “its not the Christian way” and I know this but it’s something as intelligent adults I believe needs to be known before you commit to someone for life. Sorry.

Anyway… Lindzi and Ben’s date looks pretty fun. They repel down the side of a 300ft cliff! She handles it so well. Later on in the hot tub they share a few kisses and for some reason when they kiss it just grosses me out. They are just awkward. I know I have said that before but something between them is just off. I don’t think Ben would win any kissing contest if put on the Bachelor Pad that’s for sure.

She accepts the fantasy suite card as well. Ben said he “is glad she is ready to open up to him.” (Insert dirty joke here) Ahhhh. I did not say it…you thought of whatever it was in your head. SHAME ON YOU! Go wash your head out with soap.

Courtney has un-mounted her broom and put in the closet so her and Ben can take a train ride up into the mountains where they sit down in a cow pasture for a picnic. Ben expresses his concern about how she acted with the other girls. She is pretty upset about it. She still does not get it. She still stay’s she is sorry about her actions NOT because of how she was with the girls but because it might have ruined her chances with Ben.

I can’t like this girl and I am trying. I really am. I like to go against the grain and try and play Devil’s advocate, you all know this, but I simply can’t do this with her. She acts like a child with him. They are always giggling and having non-intellectual convo after convo. I can see her farting in the bathtub and laughing for hours upon hours at the bubbles.

I have noticed that Courtney gives up really easy on things. She is always ready to say, “I don’t know if we can recover from this” at the drop of a hat. One little thing and she thinks it’s all over.

Of course they go to the Fantasy Suite. I do actually think that Courtney likes him though. I will say that.

Woooahhhh! Out of nowhere Kacie B. appears at Ben’s door! She wants to know more about why she was sent home. Ben gives her a straight answer and I like it. He say’s they come from different backgrounds and basically his family is way different than her family and that he does not see himself fitting into that mold. It was honest, sincere and great to see. I don’t think coming back like that has ever really been good for anyone has it?

Kacie B. then goes on to talk to Ben about Courtney and says, “if you were to choose Courtney you will get your heart broken.” These are very bold statements and probably very hard for Ben to listen to at this point. Even with me not caring much for Courtney I’m not sure how I feel about this at this point in the game.

The other girls don’t see how Courtney and Ben interact with each other. Courtney does suck with the other girls but I will say she is great with Ben. I know girls really want to protect someone they care for but after being sent home I’m not sure it’s her job to come back and protect at this point.

That was a waste of a loooong plane ride over to Switzerland if you ask me.

Obviously her talk has affected Ben a little though. He sits down with Chris and say’s he is really confused. That’s a hard pill to swallow this far into the show and with the feelings he has for Courtney. See if he has learned anything….

Rose Ceremony time!

Lindzi looks extra hot tonight and gets the first rose. Kacie B’s talk clearly did not matter much because Courtney gets the next rose.  I feel so bad for Nicki. I saw this coming from a mile away though. Ben did a great job at saying goodbye to her and telling her the reasons why. He was nice but honest.

Nicki says something to him in her goodbye that I think is gonna resonate with him a lot! She says, “she fears he is gonna be hurt,” clearly referring to Courtney. After Kacie B. coming back and telling Ben that and now Nicki saying it on her goodbye I feel like Ben has got to be second guessing himself.

We will see next week!

Have a great week everyone! Be a champion and do something out of the ordinary.

  1. That helicopter ride freaked me out….the pilot seemed crazy and erratic. What if that blade stalled. And he landed it right at the edge. Plus Ben and Nikki are on top of a tiny rock. Ben could have just snapped and threw her off. That whole thing made me dream about Donald Trump last night.

  2. Dave Good, the show is getting boring without the usual Courtney antics we’ve all come to know and love. Will you take off your shirt please?

    Comment by a Chick — February 28, 2012 @ 3:46 pm

  3. This episode was by far the most depressing. Ben has made horrible decisions. I agree, Linzi is definitely not a match for him, even just simply how they look together! I don’t get why he says he loves her, but not the adorable Nikki or even Casey. Whatever, if he wants the psycho model go for it. I’m sure they had great sex.

    Comment by Josephine — February 28, 2012 @ 3:51 pm

  4. Mr. Good I will try to beat your run-on sentence: Of course they are free to do whatever they want in the fantasy suite as long as no roofies or duct tape is involved but is anyone aware that the Bachelor has these three dates 3 nights in a row and must be pretty sleep deprived by the last fantasy suite date and is anyone wondering if he needs a lot of coffee and Viagra by the last date and do you think it must be a strange experience having three different girls three consecutive nights in a row, what do you think Dave, and will you take your shirt off?

    Comment by Jolene — February 28, 2012 @ 4:05 pm

  5. LMAO at “will you take off ytour shirt?”…

    Dave, will you pull down your pants? Huh, willya?

    Comment by A KISS FOR DAVE — February 28, 2012 @ 4:22 pm

  6. First off, I have no need to see you with your shirt off.

    Secondly, I am not a prude by any stretch of the imagination but the theory about test driving a car is really a male-only theory. It is damn clear that Ben only wants Courtney so if he did have sex with the other girls, shame on him. He never had any intent on buying those car and only served to lead the girls on.

    Ben just tweeted to his mom he was sorry about her having to see the bubble bath – is he going to tell her the truth about the three test drives?

    Anyway, this show is over for me but it’s like watching a train wreck, I guess I will finish out the season.

    Comment by SKae — February 28, 2012 @ 4:25 pm

  7. @ A KISS FOR DAVE, Ahahaha great idea! I hope they don’t censor us for sexual harassment against Dave Good. @SKae We heart Dave, don’t ruin the shirt thing for us! And as a female, yes, I would need to take the car out for a test drive before committing to it for the rest of my life – what if I end up with a one of those small bug cars instead of a…a…stretch limo? Sorry I don’t know anything about cars but I think I made my case clear.

  9. There is someone for everyone! They might actually be perfect for each other even if we don’t like her very much. And again….I found myself laughing out loud at you…this time for the farting in the bathtub comment!

    Comment by Mellie — February 28, 2012 @ 5:01 pm

  10. @SKae totally disagree that “test-driving a car” is a male-only theory. Provided that a person is in a committed monogamous relationship- hell yes I want to know if we are sexually compatible before getting married!! So many marriages fail because of problems with the couple’s sex life or, I would suspect, getting married too young and not having sex before marriage. No it isn’t “Christian” but I think it’s very important. Or at least sleep together once you’re engaged to make sure. Just my opinion.

    Comment by Heather — February 28, 2012 @ 5:04 pm

  11. I sort of get what you’re saying by having to ‘test drive the car’…well that analogy up to a point at least. That would be if all the cars were on equal footing. If he’s clearly got the best emotional chemistry with one girl (Courtney) then why test drive the other ones? Clearly Courtney appears to be rather uninhibited. I see that as only being an advantage in the bedroom, especially in a potentially long term relationship. Especially as we know he’s already had *some* experiences (who knows what went on in the ocean) with her. So, I don’t see the point in being intimate with the other two girls other than adding another notch to his bedpost…

    Comment by Chris — February 28, 2012 @ 5:11 pm

  12. Agree Chris. Test-driving many different cars simultaneously is not the idea. I would only test drive the car if it were only test-driving me. Hence, I would never be on this show. Basically.

    Comment by Heather — February 28, 2012 @ 5:16 pm

  13. For a guy who supposedly made a million bucks by age 25 Ben sure is stupid in the love dept. Courtney will NEVER change but who cares since I am sure after the US weekly cover story she is probably in ‘DUMPSVILLE’ or we can only hope she gets her one way ticket!

    Comment by samantha — February 28, 2012 @ 5:32 pm

  14. Hahahaha Dave, reading your run on sentence made me feel out of breath even though I read it in my head.

    Lindzi needs to meet you :)

    Comment by Jeanne — February 28, 2012 @ 5:37 pm

  15. weird to hear a guy’s perspective…Ben’s explanations to Nikki reminded me of when he would not let Ashley explain to him. It’s ok though for you when the tables have turned!

    Comment by jess — February 28, 2012 @ 5:57 pm

  16. David G, you are an enigma! :)
    I always thought Natalie was just so perfect for you.
    She is super attractive, quite witty, very amusing, plus — she has an edge to her which is SO similar to your sort of direct and rather sarcastic (but appealing) nature.
    You seem smitten with Lindzi. She is super sweet, quick to laugh and quite cute … no edge at all!
    David, I do believe you hide your softer side VERY VERY well. You REALLY DO LIKE sweet and feminine!!! wow

  17. Gah!! Your comment about the kissing contest (so true) made me miss Bachelor Pad!!! I’m ready! Hope this upcoming season is as great as yours was!!

    Comment by Brin — February 28, 2012 @ 6:15 pm

  18. I understand the meaning of testing the car, but I dont know, still grossed out by it. Wouldnt it be easier to sleep with a prostitute …aka a guy who slept with the other 2 girls in the same week he’s sleeping with you? I mean, i know ppl go out a hookup at clubs all the time, but i feel fantasy suite is just a fancier way of embelishing the fact the bachelor is a man whore.

    People today still get arranged marriages. In fact, it has the lowest divorce rate also. My parents had an arranged marriage, they are soo in love to this day. No divorce, no separation. nothing. And there was no “test” driving. I’m not ridiculing the show at all, but TRUE love doesnt need to be “tested”.

    Comment by Susan :) — February 28, 2012 @ 7:15 pm

  19. I can’t believe Ben has not realized all the “red flags”
    Raised regarding Courtney. Doesn’t he know that to have
    A great relationship you have to have trust. If
    He picks Courtney I will be disappointed to say
    The least and he deserves to be hurt by her,
    Which is what she will do. She is so phony and
    Immature. Even though it does seem lindzi. And
    Ben are a bit awkward I think she is better for Ben.

    Comment by Debby — February 28, 2012 @ 9:33 pm

  20. Had to laugh at the comments regarding “Witchypoo.” I think it is clear that he “test drove” Cruella back during the skinny dipping session. I see no reason to have visited the other two carlots in the Fantasy suite, unless “Little Ben” was driving. From my point of view, “Little Ben” needs a lobodomy! I’m predicting that the “After the Rose” show will not be featuring Courtney in any form or fashion. She will be MIA, because I’m sure as hell that they are no longer together. If he watched the same episodes we did and is still with “Winning,” he deserves what he gets.

    Comment by thetexastatas — February 28, 2012 @ 10:25 pm

  21. I could not even endure watching this entire episode so I had to come here and read what David Good wrote on his recap. This show is not reality, I’m sorry the dates are only reality for the rich, most of us Americans work and just get by we can’t afford chopper rides, Swiss Alps, Hot Tubs, 1,000 USD a night hotel rooms, trips to Panama, Mayan temples etc…Just cant do it..thus for 99% of us real people its just not reality. I am giving up on this show, I want something that is reality I’m a 23 year old girls and this stuff is just so unrealistic. I’ve been watching Sweet Home Alabama and the show is MUCH more real, with real dates that real people like you and me and the readers here would actually do. And 90% of the time they are all local dates, falling in love locally like most of us would do in real life. Not having to go to Panama or Switzerland to fall in love.Also its so nice to see this show cause they dont have sex try outs like a sleazy fantasy suite where the man the next day tells you he loves you..but the night before he laid with 2 other women..GROSS! Again real life NO NORMAL WOMEN would keep that sleaze bag around if he did that, unless its “Who Wants to Marry a Prostitute-Player”.
    I like Kacie b and if she wanted true love she should have went on Sweet Home Alabama then this show. And those Southern men know that Southern dads are overly protective of their daughters, and that entire awkward home date would have been water under the bridge to a true southern gentleman.
    I will not be watching next season with Emily nor more Bachelor Pad. its not real life. if I want to see stuff like that I’ll just watch a Van Wilder movie.

    Comment by April Sutter — February 28, 2012 @ 11:03 pm

  22. Oh please… The people on this show know very well the person they choose is essentially a gf/bf that they can drop in an instant. Its still pretty gross and questionable for the lead to test drive 2 other women (3 total.) I guess people understand the possibility when they sign up.

    Comment by Anon — February 28, 2012 @ 11:43 pm

  23. What a really great blog this week! I laughed for 10 minutes about your comment about Courtney in the hot tub laughing about the bubbles. I realized how right you are; they never talk about anything important! I really liked Ben on Ashley’s season and thought he would really find happiness. His season has been very boring for me. The focus has been SO much on Courtney that no connections have been shown. I did love the conversation with Kacie B. I thought that was honestly real. There has been no love story this season. I think Ben will choose Courtney and I don’t see them being together 10 months down the road like JP and Ashley.

    Comment by Lisa M — February 29, 2012 @ 4:34 am

  24. Clearly the feelings Ben has for Courtney are much greater than the feelings he has for the other girls. Yes, she has been very mean spirited towards the other girls and that is something she will have to be accountable for. I just don’t think that Ben should be receiving all this negativity just for following his heart. What should he do? Send her home than pull a Brad Womack?

    Comment by Nora — February 29, 2012 @ 6:15 am

  25. Dave, I really disagree with the test drive theory. Statistics prove that sleeping together/living with someone before marriage only increases the chance of divorce, not eradicate them. Sexual satisfaction, while obviously important in a relationship, is not the be all and end all.

    Comment by Jen — February 29, 2012 @ 6:59 am

  26. I know you already know and have probably heard this a million times already but boy do I want to B@#$! slap you right now. The theory of sleeping with a woman comparing to test driving a car is extremely disrespectful… i wonder how many men you would like to test drive your daughter before one of them finally decided she was good enough in the sack to marry!
    Admit it, you would hate that. Well every single woman is someones daughter and more importantly the daughter of a High King. Think about that the next time you want to test drive a woman. I could go on about the repercussions of having sex prior to marriage but I’ll spare you.
    Ugh, made me vomit in the mouth reading that and you lost this daughter of the King’s respect.

    Comment by Sarah — February 29, 2012 @ 7:59 am

  27. oooh, I had a really good thought to go with your analogy… Just wanted to let everyone (men and women) reading this know not to believe that lie. When you test drive a car you can’t make it your own or let’s just say “put your stuff” in it until you buy it. That would be taking your test drive a little too far and would be disrespectful not only to the “car” but also to the person who actually does want to buy it. Who would want to buy a car with someone elses crap in it? Women, you don’t have to let him put his “stuff” in you until he “buys” you! Amen! :) Anyways, I am pretty passionate about that and you kinda asked for it Dave.

    Comment by Sarah — February 29, 2012 @ 8:59 am

  28. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the very first paragraph! Totally cracked me up!!!! Great blog, Dave!

    Comment by Tracey — February 29, 2012 @ 9:04 am

  29. I knew that comment would get a lot of laughs as well as some negative feedback. That is why I threw it in there. I do however have to say that telling me it is extremely disrespectful then saying you want to “B@#%! slap me is 10 times more ignorant and disrespectful. It had a comedic value and is a funny analogy about a serious subject and it was not aimed at just woman, I believe men need to be “tested” fully as well. If you really can’t joke around about this kind of stuff your sense of humor is just awful.
    You can say whatever you want but if it comes down to 3 woman or men left and its close for the person choosing, a great sexual chemistry can be the deal breaker. Again a lot of you just read into that and saw red and think I am talking only of Ben, but if you go back and read it I’m talking about the “fantasy suite” in general not just him. Also it is only my opinion because of experience. I have had more than one partner and therefore know that chemistry can vary greatly and that many marriages are broken up because of this lack of chemistry (whether you want to believe that or not) I know a few personally so it IS important.
    The bottom line is there are a lot of good people out there and someone perfect for JUST YOU and I hope that everyone can find that person on the show or in their own lives and through whatever means necessary to live a long and happy life together. I meant no disrespect.

    Comment by Neighbor — February 29, 2012 @ 11:01 am

  31. Sooooo funny how serious some people take this. It’s a blog, formulated by an opinion, based on a TV show! Anyone who watches “The Bachelor” knows what goes on during the fantasy suite date.. And if you think they just hop outta the hot tub and play scrabble all night.. Well.. That’s just naive. So put down the proverbial stones because just as you and the other 1% of the nation is entitled to your opinion about abstinence till marriage blah blah,The other 99% that would like to know if there is sexual chemistry before commiting to spend their ENTIRE LIFE with someone,are entitled to theirs. Have a great day :)

    Comment by Shawna — February 29, 2012 @ 11:16 am

  32. I was disappointed in Ben decision at the rose ceremony. I was really disappointed when he sent Kacy B home. From the beginning I liked her and thought for sure he would end up with her. But he continues to pick courtney over what the girls have told him. She is only out for the win. She wanted to prove that she could beat all the girls rather she cared for Ben or not. She just wants to win no matter what. If he picks her in the end I believe she will break his heart. She is a total BITCH. If he can’t see past her games he is the stupid one!!!

  34. hahaha, that was good Jolene! I couldn’t agree with you more, David, on the test drive. Having been through a few unsuccessful test drives, I know how important and ESSENTIAL it is in the relationship. I really like your blog!

    Comment by Tash — February 29, 2012 @ 7:55 pm

  35. Dave I personally DON’T have a problem with premarital sex, I also agree that a sexual chemistry is good to do BEFORE marriage. My problem is the guy sleeps with 2 other women the two previous nights..and then around 3 days latter he ‘picks’ one of these girls. Sorry but REAL LIFE go and find any decent women who has feelings for a guy and KNOWS “as the other 2 women know’ that he slept with two other women he likes just the past day. Real life he would be dumped! Same with the bachelorettes..men are overly jealous and I can tell you if I was dating a man and he knew I had sex with two other dudes that week..while I was telling him I had ‘feelings’ for him he would more less call me a liar whore.
    I do NOT like the fantasy suite situation on the bachelor. it is more less prostitution, these women put out in hopes of getting a rose “and more air time’.It is nothing short of a form of prostitution. They are not having fantasy suite on Sweet Home Alabama and those past couples as far as I know are still together..
    I think sex should be with the one he wants at the end. If I was on the show “which I will degrade myself to do’ If I knew he screwed other women I would LEAVE!
    We live in a monogamous society. And thus one man-one women. if this was Babylon crita 1,300 BC sure then i would understand the test runs.

    Comment by April Sutter — February 29, 2012 @ 10:09 pm

  36. I meant to say in the last post ‘ which I will never degrade myself to do the show’

    Comment by April Sutter — February 29, 2012 @ 10:11 pm

  37. The only reason Courtney is still there is she is the forbidden fruit. In other words what you are told you shouldn’t have you want. In the other previous seasons there was always somebody Wes and Bentley for an example…many times the bachelorettes were told and warned but only to have them stay longer. It is what they are told they can’t have they want more. It is like they want to prove the disapprovers wrong.

    Comment by John W — March 1, 2012 @ 7:16 am

  38. Oh yea my prediction is he will pick Lindzi. Their connection is strong and her Dad reminds him of his own Dad which he was close to.

    Comment by Mary — March 1, 2012 @ 9:47 am

  40. Perhaps I went too far saying I felt like slapping you. So I’m sorry and ask you to forgive me for that. I’ve never slapped anyone before. My point was just that I was pissed that so many people believe that way and it causes a lot more of pain and heartache then good. And we end up knowing a whole lot more about someone then we need to if we don’t end up marrying that person. I think two people can know they’d do just fine in that area without compromising themselves before marriage. I hope that better explains my heart. And do hope the best for you.

    Comment by mike — March 1, 2012 @ 10:29 am

  42. Thank you David for standing firm on your assessment of Courtney. Constantine (Ben’s supposed best friend) having been very insightful about her behavior up to the hometown dates, is now making excuses for her behavior (all because she says she has been treated badly in the past by men — please, where is the evidence? By all acounts she has continually had boyfriends for 10 years and I wonder who treated who badly in those relationships). She is a mean girl who gets what she wants at the moment using her looks and sexuality. She did not like competing for a guy with other women and found it necessary to trash them on her way to ” winning.”. To be clear I have found her antics to be the most enertaining aspect of this Bachelor season. Each week I looked forward to seeing what she might come up with next. For her to now pretend she is ” sorry” is not believable and has eliminated the one interesting aspect of this show!!! I do hope the women hold Ben accountable for his behavior at the WTA. He clearly had no connection with any of these women and was bad at pretending he did!! It is too bad that none saw what was going on and refused his roses. That would have been a better outcome than what we saw week after week.

    Comment by Katherine — March 1, 2012 @ 10:50 am

  43. I laughed long and hard about the kissing comments. Ben looks like an awful kisser. In fact, I firmly believe Lindzi jumped out of the helicopter a few weeks ago BECAUSE he started kissing her. He thought he was motivating/seducing her into jumping. He didn’t realize she did it to get away from his kisses! Yuck!!!!

    Comment by karyn — March 1, 2012 @ 3:37 pm

  44. Katherine….excellent post. It was very well written and expressed a lot of the same things I’ve been thinking. In regards to Constantine, I’ve been reading a lot of different blogs this season, including his, and you are absolutely right. Of course, he is supposedly Ben’s BFF, so he has to have both their backs, if indeed they are (still) engaged.

    David…love your writing. To be honest with you, you’ve kind of grown on me, so thanks for the enjoyable review of the trainwreck.

    Comment by karyn — March 1, 2012 @ 3:52 pm

  45. Hey Dave you’re not the only one who mentioned the Test Drive theory. Kim Cattral’s character Samantha Jones mentioned it and the quote is: “Honey, before you buy the car you take it for a test drive” regarding sex before marriage. I laughed when I read that in your blog. LOL

    Comment by Cynthia Baker — March 3, 2012 @ 3:58 pm

  48. If I were one of the last three women, I could not bring myself to sleep with him no matter how much I wanted to. There is no way to know for sure that you will be his final choice, and I wouldn’t want to set myself up for that disappointment. There’s always time to have sex after you get engaged; and if something’s not right in that department, it can be fixed before the wedding. How bad at sex can someone be?

    Comment by Laurie — March 4, 2012 @ 10:17 pm

  49. Oh yeah, and I read that Ashley Spivey said that Ashley Hebert never slept (had sex) with Ben, that they slept in separate beds on their overnight date. Firstly, they had two overnight dates, and secondly, it doesn’t sound believable. But if they didn’t have sex, good for them.

  50. Wow, David….also loved the bubbles comment! Funny Stuff The only problem I have is about the trying out sex before marriage. Not opposed to it but am opposed to that being the deal breaker. Anyone can have great sex when you are dating or in lust! How would you know that will be the same after you are married, have kids and are over worked and under slept. One more thing Ben and Courtney deserve each other.

  51. Staying here at Bergasthaus Marmorbroch outside of Grindelwald Switzerland only to find out it is the place of the hot tub scene in season 16 episode 9 !!!!
    Anita showed us the card of the Field Manager and told us all about it.
    This palace is wonderful, typical swiss family-owned chalet, only 5 rooms, great food and drink too. And they are bikers–Walk showed us his Harley in the garage. They were in Sturgess in 2001.
    Anyway thought it was a great story….but Anita really wants to see the episode. Where is link to full episode that she can view in Switzerland?

  52. Corrections…place, not palace…. names are Anita and Wali you can find by internet search. 30 min walk east from Grund train station, just follow the river until you see signs pointing the way. We liked them so much we stayed a 2nd night.
    Showed Anita the Amazing Race episodes filmed in Grindelwald and she kept pointing out people she knew!
