Jenna’s “Over-Analyst” Blog: Episode 7 Recap

Here we are…6 to go! Wow, what a season, right? I’m now calling it “The Courtney Show!” Ben seems to be very happy with his final 6 women (I beg to differ…jk!). I’m really happy with all the women he has chosen. No offense to the other ladies, but it’s about finding a connection and I feel like this group of women meshes best with Ben. This episode, Ben chooses 3 one-on-one dates and one group date. I have a theory that the group date doesn’t necessarily mean Ben is unsure about the chosen women for this particular date. Before I thought he chose one-on-one dates with only women he was sure of. But it makes sense to choose a woman he possibly is unsure of for a one-on-one and stick with a girl he is sure about in the group date…maybe just to throw people off.

First one-on-one goes to my bestie, Ms. Lindzi! I really do feel like Lindzi and Ben have an extremely strong connection. I see something between these two. Ben really likes women who are independent, always smiling and up for adventure. Lindzi screams all that. From my short time on the season, as you all know, me and Lindzi became really close. I love her attitude about everything. The girl doesn’t get involved in any drama and lets any sort of confrontation (from Courtney) roll off her shoulder. I give her major props. It’s almost like she’s oblivious to any drama. Now, I know what my strategy should have been! Lol.

Meanwhile, I’m absolutely shocked to see Courtney upset. The whole season we have seen her acting confident, putting other girls down and acting completely sure about her and Ben’s connection. I know America will probably hate what I’m about to say. But I think Courtney has a heart and she is hurting. She is scared that she’s not going to get a one-on-one and feel rejected. Which is why she keeps talking about not accepting a rose if she doesn’t get a one-on-one. And this is just how she reacts to a situation like this. No one wants to feel rejected so the way she usually deals with it is putting herself on a pedestal. And don’t get me wrong, I don’t agree with it. But to see her getting upset, I started feeling bad. So I’m still trying to stay positive about Courtney. But then again, many of the girls are agreeing she’s in it to win it. I’m going to cut her some slack since all of America is against her.

Courtney, I’d like to see you after the show regardless! Maybe we can put the whole “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” to rest.

Back to Lindzi and Ben’s date! In a helicopter once again:) And they are in bathing suits…hmm. From the previews, I knew they were jumping out of the helicopter but I honestly didn’t know they were that high! My heart would have jumped out of my chest. But I LOVE thrills like this. My biggest obsessions are rollercoaster and horror movies. JENNA, JENNA, you’re not there! Back to reality…or The Bachelor. I think Lindzi handled herself phenomenally. And why does Ben never ever look scared for anything that comes his way? This is absolutely a great trait Ben has. No one wants to be with a man who is scared to take risks. And I think Ben wants to find someone who can do these kinds of things. Check for Lindzi.

I know some people think that their evening portion of the date was somewhat cheesy (mainly because of the montage) but I adored it! When you start dating someone, the beginning is always cheesy. But this kind of cheesy is good. I thought it was creative and cute. I thought their little fairytale was well written but we didn’t get to see the drawings! I wonder who will find that bottle?! Whoever finds it should put it on eBay and sell that thing!

Michael Stag, I read your post….great work! But I have to say, yeah we didn’t see Lindzi opening up as much as the other women because she is a little guarded. And there ain’t nothing wrong with that. Ben will be able to tell if she’s into him or not, regardless of how much she opens up. We still have a few more episodes and I don’t blame Lindz for not putting 100% of her heart out there. I think after hometown dates, that’s the time to do it!

And Michael, I too agree…NO IDEA how you are still single. You are a good man with such a big heart. You have tons of fans out there. :)

Next date, goes to Emily “full package” O’Brien! So happy she got another chance for some alone time with Ben. I know she was heartbroken that she chose to spend previous alone time with Ben talking about Courtney. But Em, don’t regret anything! What’s done is done. Trust me, I have a lot of regrets BUT I know why it all happened. I’ll dive into that SO much deeper at The Women Tell All!

I thought their date was perfect. They had great conversation, they both were laughing and being playful with one another. It was like they were on a real date on vacation. These are the dates that are so great, in my opinion. You really get a chance to connect and imagine your life that person in the future. You can tell Emily’s feelings are genuine and I’m so glad she addressed the “Courtney issue” with Ben because I think he really appreciated it.

I’m glad Ben finally told Emily she was a beautiful girl because we all know she is smart and witty! She truly is a beautiful girl inside and out. Em, you as well have a lot of fans! xx

Well, looks like Courtney is happy about getting the next one-on-one! Rest assured that she is going to accept that rose and of course, make Ben feel uneasy about their relationship so she can feel that power again with him. It’s an extremely competitive show and this is how Courtney deals with it. We all deal with it in different ways.

One girl who is not happy about this date is Kacie B. which I don’t blame her. Courtney should just gladly accept the invite, get ready and stop talking about the other girls. Focus on Ben! She tends to like to rub things in the other girls’ faces to get under their skin. And clearly it works! We haven’t seen our Southern Bell, Kacie B., react like this! Sometimes this type of situation can make the sane get jealous or what viewers like to call “crazy.” Kacie B., keep being you and keep your eye on the prize. Ha, I love how I’m giving advice. But you really do learn so much coming out of this type of journey…adventure….experience. All of our favorite words!

Smooth, parted evenly…Ben’s hair is tame! This must be right out of the shower and he hasn’t been outdoors yet. That humidity is the devil. Right Kacie B.?? I LOVE your wild hair! I remember when we were getting ready in the bathroom in Sonoma and I saw your beautiful, unstraightened, thick hair! I was dying laughing but severely jealous of your locks!!

During Courtney’s date, she explains to Ben that it’s been a rough week for her. But of course it has! I’m sure the other girls are having a bad week too. That’s the name of the game! You’re jealous, not happy when you’re in a room full of women who are dating the same men. And you are on cloud nine when you spend time with Ben. You gotta go through hell to get to heaven! But it seems like Ben has calmed Courtney’s nerves a bit and she got the spark back! I’m sure the other girls are going to be thrilled. I was happy to see a different side of Courtney. She dressed very casual for the date and was totally into exploring the history of Belize. I’m not so sure she should have told Ben she was contemplating on not accepting the rose because she didn’t feel like she was getting enough attention. Ben doesn’t know what’s going on behind the scenes. And the girls are very minimal with their words when explaining. So I REALLY don’t think that America should blame Ben. As we can see, Courtney and him have a very strong connection….which I’m still trying to figure out but I know it’s there. Anything can happen. For instance, look at Michelle Money. Ya’ll called her crazy on Brad’s season (me included) but what a comeback she made on Bachelor Pad. When I met her, I was in awe. She is the sweetest and smartest girl.) So let’s just keep patient until the finale!

I loved Ben’s reaction to Courtney when she said, “I have a lot of guy friends.” I think I spit out my wine I laughed so hard!

I know everyone has noticed that Ben kisses each woman differently. Some women, he chooses to open mouth kiss and others, close mouth kiss. And some women, he grasps their face while kissing and others, his hands are just chillin. Clearly, there is passion going on. Check, check.

Group date! AMAZING that Ben woke Kacie B., Rach and Nicki up! I thought it was adorable. The girls were somewhat embarrassed because of course they want to look their best when seeing Ben. Haaaa, Kacie B.

I’m sure the girls planned on looking their best for their very important group date! And I’m sure they had planned on doing that the morning before the date but because of Ben’s little surprise, they had to do a quick shave – shaving their armpits in the sink. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!!

You have my word, if I ever lasted this long and I was on this date. Hell no. My #1 biggest fear in life (which will never change) is sharks. I used to scream at my dad when he would step foot in the ocean and tell him he was going to be eaten by sharks. He would laugh. I would cry. Hysterical. But those days are over. I swim in the ocean but I do NOT swim with the sharks. I would be Rachel x 10. But I thought Rach was a good sport about it. If she has a phobia with sharks, she held herself pretty well! But because of this phobia, Ben had to give a little more attention to Rach rather than Kacie B. and Nicki. Which I’m sure didn’t feel good for them. It’s just them and the sharks.

Like Rach said, Ben is very attentive. And I think he did the right thing. But then again, I don’t blame Kacie B. and Nicki. Kacie B. is very honest and I do agree with her that she not a jealous person but when one-on-one date is happening on a group date, the jealousy comes out no matter what. That’s why we love it. It’s a test to see how far you can remain sane.

Ben & Rach had a lot of alone time on this group date so I was definitely thinking she was getting a rose. I do see stronger relationships with Ben and the other women. But Rach is the bomb (yeah, I said that)! So no matter what happens, Rach is going to be fine. Because after all these shenanigans, me & Rach are going to kick it in NYC. Right Rach?

I think this was the ultimate perfect time for Kacie B. to express that she was falling in love with Ben. That is, if she is truly falling in love with Ben. Which I genuinely believe. I think these two make such an adorable couple! And I know America agrees with me! But what the hell? Close mouth kiss again? She said “love”, that deserves an open mouth kiss! Sorry, got a little heated. I love how intense I get with this show now.

Oh snap! The girls warn Ben about Courtney, yet again! This is not looking good for Courtney. That’s a total of 4 women now warning Ben about Courtney. Sometimes this can bring out the worst in people. Look at Vienna. Eeek.

And as you can see, Ben is not so happy about hearing this from the other women. It was fine hearing it from one girl but from 3 other women?? He’s fighting it though. I know his feelings are strong for Courtney. I have fallen and dated “bad boys” for a time in my life. And I’m single. Point proven.

Mom! So proud of her. She absolutely deserved the rose. It is so freakin’ hard to tell someone you love them, especially in TV…in such a short amount of time. But if you’re feeling it, then you gotta get the balls to say it. And Kacie B. has balls. I hope I can say “balls” on this blog? Kacie B. gets to introduce Benjamin to her family! Hometown dates are my favorite! I know the girls chosen will really come out of their shell and be themselves. When you’re around family, you get such a sense of calmness.

Oh man, Confident Courtney is back. She starts talking smack about my girl, Kacie B. Nooooo! I was totally defending you, Courtney! Bite your tongue!

Courtney says, “Let’s get this party started!” Now you know Courtney is feeling very sure about getting a rose at this point. I just feel bad for the other women who are nervous. They don’t want to party. It’s serious for them. Not a bad thing to take this seriously, girls!

I always reference this show as “The Bachelor Bubble” because you say things you don’t mean because you are disconnected from the world! Emily was shocked that Courtney said, “Ben’s not the only guy in the world.” But I mean, I agree. He’s not. And if you need to tell yourself that, then that ‘s fine. Beacause anyone can go home at this point and you need to be prepared and reassure yourself that life will go on. Mine has;)

I was shocked that there was no cocktail party. Ben seems to be pretty darn sure about his final four. I thought it was smart of him to pull Courtney aside because that seems to be his only concern. I’m not sure if she said everything she could have but she did an okay job. More importantly, she convinced Ben she was in this for the right reasons. Onto the rose ceremony….

That means Emily & Rach are going home. I was so sad but so happy. My emotions are all over the place. It seemed like Emily & Rach had a great time with Ben. But he’s a good guy and of course, he’s going to be nice to everyone. But like I’ve said before, the heart wants what the heart wants. So don’t take this personally, girls! Join the club. It’s a great club. I’m sure you both are feeling great now! Em, would love to visit you in NC! And Rach, I’m a subway ride away! What’s great about this whole thing is that if you get dumped, you make amazing friendships. And I consider you both great friends.

“When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.” (Paulo Cohelo, Brida)

It’s fascinating why things happen for certain reasons. But I think that reason will become clearer soon!

KILL SHOT.

    I really can’t wait until the next show to see how the girls act with their family there.

    Have a great week!

    Comment by Jill Engle — February 17, 2012 @ 2:42 pm

  3. I love the replies that actually call you out. You OOZE insecurity Jenna. I loved the one of the girl saying you were PSYCHOTIC on the show, then seem mature on here. It’s because on here, you can edit!!! Put a person in a high-stress situation and THAT’S when you see their true colors. The other bloggers don’t hesitate to call a spade a spade (aka, Courtney a sociopath). But here you are sticking up for her and being “optimistic”. Really?! You’re so painfully insecure and CLEARLY crave everyone’s approval. It’s so sad you can’t have legit opinions like the other bloggers.

    Comment by Jill Engle — February 17, 2012 @ 2:44 pm

  4. Also – only people who HAVEN’T moved on feel the need to make a point of saying “I’ve moved on”.

    And Jenna, PLEASE spare us all and don’t go into detail on WTA about your craziness. Explain, rationalize, and justify your behavior all you want. But it is what it is. You were absolutely unstable – and no one cares to hear you try to explain it.

    You made an idiot out of yourself on national television, you feel dumb (as would any sane person), and now you’re trying to justify it. And make a point of saying how NOT crazy you are.

    Please. Get a life!!!

    Comment by Jill Engle — February 17, 2012 @ 2:45 pm

  5. Jill Engle, you are so ridiculous. YOU need to get a life. Seriously. You have no idea why she acted the way she did on the show or what the producers edited out. Get over yourself.

    Comment by Meghan — February 17, 2012 @ 4:02 pm

  6. Jill Engle. Please don’t judge people you have never meet and only know through a tv show. You are the one making an idiot out of yourself now. Please spare us from mean comments like that.
    Jenna. Great blog. Looking forward to see you and the other women at WTA :)

    Comment by Mette — February 17, 2012 @ 4:36 pm

  7. Jenna I totally agree about Courtney having a heart, and that her talking about refusing a rose was her trying to protect herself. I actually like her childlike antics and gangsta attitude.
    Your writing is very insightful and funny!

    Comment by Jessica — February 17, 2012 @ 4:51 pm

  8. awesome Jenna! I thought your blog was funny yet insightful. Its different because you actually met these girls and formed friendships. cant wait for the WTA.

    Ps. we should totally meet up in NYC :)

    Comment by Susan :) — February 17, 2012 @ 5:06 pm

  9. Jill Engle WTF is wrong with you, you psycho. STFU UP BITCH.

    I enjoyed reading your blog Jenna. Don’t pay any attention to Jill, she is just jealous of you.

    I hate dumb bitches like Jill.

    Comment by Carmen — February 17, 2012 @ 6:35 pm

  10. Jenna,

    I saw you on The Revolution the other day, and am totally excited to see that you are taking your experience on the show and using it to better yourself. Don’t listen to the haters. They are probably jealous that they didn’t even make it on the show. I enjoy your insight, especially since you spent time with these girls. Keep on doing your thing. After all, the only person you need to make happy is yourself!

    Comment by Angela — February 17, 2012 @ 7:22 pm

  11. This is the first comment I have ever left on a blog and it’s for the evil Jill Engle. You are a mean, miserable person. I feel really sorry for you. My guess is that you have never had the courage to audition to be on the Bachelor or you have never been selected for something like this so you prefer to hide behind your computer and criticize others. Please don’t reproduce!

    Comment by Grace H. — February 17, 2012 @ 8:35 pm

  12. Jill Engle, you have no idea what you are talking about. Shh…you’re better off being nobody. I’m defending Courtney bc she is actually a person. But she is trying to find herself. It’s a damn TV show. Only the ridiculous people believe it’s 100% true (YOU). I’m not insecure at all. I’m happy to come forth and say you should have not said what you did. Many people, agree. From your post, you’ve gained many haters from Bachelor nation. And if you don’t care, stop reading this blog. You clearly love it if you know this much;)

    Comment by Jenna Burke — February 17, 2012 @ 9:28 pm

  13. Great blog Jenna, i like how you try and and find the positives -especially about Courtney. Shows you are a kind-hearted person. There are reasons why people behave as they do. None of us are perfect! Keep up the good analysis! I love it. :-)

    Comment by Anna — February 17, 2012 @ 10:16 pm

  14. It is so ridiculous in some of these blogs how some will absolutely do what they are critizing someone else of doing. Im not taking sides on Jill Engle. However, some of the commenters who are criticizing her for making comments about someone she has never met and then they turn around and make comments. Such as “I hate dumb bitches such as Jill”. Pot meet kettle.

    One comment I would make which is not in agreement with Jenna is regards her comparison of Courtney and Michele. Michele was produced in her ITMs to end up with a very negative response from the viewers. And then to be found out later that she is a very, very well liked person. Courtney, as well, has a very negative image from her ITMs. However she doesnt stop there as Michele did. Courtney carries it forth with the other ladies around. Making her snide comments directly to them. Hence, I dont see any comparison between the two.

    And I will continue to say as I have in other blogs, the winners this season are the gals who dont end up getting a rose. Ben does not appear to be ready to settle down. He appears to still have a desire to fulfill his young man’s lust. It is very difficult to defend his decision to go skinny-dipping with ONE of the remaining 10 girls who all have hopes of being the final girl. And with his mother and family knowingly being able to see what he did.

    And I am in agreement with Barbara Walters who said on The View “I cant understand why these girls carry on the way they do. Just let me say, He is far less than gorgeous”. Quote, Unquote.

    And Jenna can respond to this if she chooses. But there have been a number of people who have stated that they dont believe any of these gals would have gone out with Ben if they met him on the street. This includes a number of past cast mates.

    It is a known fact that many of the past cast mates comprise a very close knit family and look out for each other in the outside world. At the same time not all are accepted into the family and earn their compassion and protection. Anyone ever notice cast mates such as Jake are not commonly heard about in the private comments, tweets and blogs. It will be interesting to see what becomes of Ben and Courtney with the Bachelor/ette Family. On the other hand dont be surprised to hear that Stag contacts Emily. Or DaveG contacts Lindzi even though she drives a Ford pickup.

  16. Loved it Jenna! I really liked how you brought Michelle Money back into it because I think almost everyone disliked her on her season of the Bachelor, but now, as you said, she is a respected member of the community and someone I now love! I saw that same quality in your writing, and look forward to hearing you at the WTA! Keep it up and shake the haters off :)

    Comment by Anna — February 18, 2012 @ 7:08 am

  17. Divr is Ashley Spivey, there are many many comments and references she makes in her style of writing and her own personal speech.

    I knew she was commenting to herself on her own blog to get numbers in hits. She is so ridiculous.

    Comment by Ashley is busted — February 18, 2012 @ 7:23 am

  18. It’s nice to get the perspective of someone who’s met all the girls.
    and wow… Jenna may or may not be insecure. everybody has some insecurities… but whoever commented as Jill Engle sounds like a total crackpot.

    Comment by Angela — February 18, 2012 @ 1:34 pm

  19. How refreshing, finally: ” But I think Courtney has a heart and she is hurting. She is scared that she’s not going to get a one-on-one and feel rejected. Which is why she keeps talking about not accepting a rose if she doesn’t get a one-on-one. And this is just how she reacts to a situation like this. No one wants to feel rejected so the way she usually deals with it is putting herself on a pedestal. And don’t get me wrong, I don’t agree with it. But to see her getting upset, I started feeling bad. So I’m still trying to stay positive about Courtney”. It’s good to hear a female start to perceive another human being there without getting caught up in her own insecurities. My hat’s off to you Jenna

    Comment by Damian — February 19, 2012 @ 2:05 am

  20. This is a minor turn-around for me. I have fiercely defended Courtney not only because I believe that she is being genuine with Ben but also am simply stupefied by the piling on going on around me. However after finishing your blog today, Jenna, and as previously noted, whole-heartedly agreeing with your perspective on her in the quote I cited, I was finding it hard to listen to her answers when Ben pulled her aside before the Rose Ceremony. That for me is the one fly in the ointment. I am a little uncomfortable with her not doing a “Hey, Ben…Look at me!…I really care about you. Could I look like this and feel like this if I didn’t… etc.” as she puts her hand on his arm. But instead I heard not a small degree of defensiveness. I understand they were under the gun, time wise, or at least the editing suggested that. Perhaps they could have spoken for 20 minutes. I would not be any the wiser. However, if I cared about someone I simply don’t think I would have phrased it “and I don’t want you to question me”. Perhaps she meant that in the best possible way, namely “I am truly yours” however I always tend to hear the reverse when someone tells me Not to do something. It just seemed a tad more awkward than it needed to be, unless of course Ben, off camera , re-referred to the gals telling him to be careful. Then I do not blame Courtney’s defensiveness for one second. She has been outnumbered from the start, and besides, if someone I cared about started listening to others about my own feelings and trusted them over me, I would feel, well, the only word I can come up with is “outraged”. That would be an insult and would tell me immediately I need to move on. I mean that’s an attack on my integrity and honesty and all in a pressure situation. No, if that were the case then Courtney behaved mildly.

    Oh and one response to your shark comment Jenna (I wish I could remember what you look like. Any chance you could post your pick so I get a feel for who I am talking with). The sharks were said to be all female and according to an animal behaviorist never attack. That is the male’s purview, strictly, unlike most of the females floating around the B Blogs.

    Comment by Damian — February 19, 2012 @ 2:35 am

  21. Ok, with a little industriousness, I take it you are the “are you kidding me” Jenna. No pic required. Nice to meet you.

    Comment by Damian — February 19, 2012 @ 2:50 am

  22. Wow Anna! To put these two comments one right after another takes…hmmm

    “. Ben does not appear to be ready to settle down. He appears to still have a desire to fulfill his young man’s lust.”

    “And I am in agreement with Barbara Walters who said on The View “I cant understand why these girls carry on the way they do. Just let me say, He is far less than gorgeous”. Quote, Unquote.”

    Okay so are you saying if a guy lusts after what he sees it’s his “young man’s lust” which he clearly has not outgrown, but if a woman, such as yourself does it, it’s just fine and dandy. Re-meet the kettle, pot!

    Comment by Damian — February 19, 2012 @ 2:56 am

  23. Sorry Anna, it was Divr..I misread…apologies to anna

    Comment by Damian — February 19, 2012 @ 3:02 am

  24. Well, I hope Ben has a nice time, gets laid a few times..Cause no matter who he picks will not end at the alter..I can see clear Lindzi is not interested in him also,.thus hope him the best in the moment.

    Comment by DJ — February 19, 2012 @ 11:14 am

  25. Ahh, you are such wonderful people and I’m happy you enjoyed my insight! Damian, you can see some pics of me on my blog (www.theoveranalyst.net). Hopefully, that can help you remember!

  27. If you don’t like what Jenna writes, don’t read her blog..that simple! A blog is one person’s experience and words…not yours! Get your own blog if you want to dish on someone else’s words…You go Jenna!!

    Comment by Lynn — February 20, 2012 @ 1:37 pm

  28. Great blog, Jenna, and I completely agree about Courtney hurting. She gave another side of herself to Ben very early on and with her having to wait, she became scared because she had developed those feelings. Courtney risked a lot by getting so intimate with Ben so early on in the season. I am a fan of your blogs, Jenna, and a fan of you! Thank you.

    Comment by emy — February 20, 2012 @ 2:35 pm

  29. Great blog Jenna except that I think everyone is missing the point. Courtney is manipulating Ben. What kind of lasting relationship is that? She never really kisses back. Have you noticed that? I’m sure she said to Ben ‘if you keep Emily why would you want me. We’re two different people’. He didn’t look happy about getting rid of Emily. I also think she’s going to manipulate him tonight and he’ll get rid of Kacie B. Kacie is her biggest competition. She’s soooo in control and as she’s said ‘I’m in it to WIN it’. Yup theres a lot of feelings for Ben here alright. It’s all about winning. I feel bad for Ben as he’s going to walk away without finding the love of his life.

    Comment by Ariel_Music — February 20, 2012 @ 4:00 pm

  30. This season of the bachelor certainly shows how guy’s follow their lust over love when he is so interested in courtney because she already showed her body to him and ignores the other girls that are warning him about how she really is… Courtney already said once someone crosses her she doesn’t forgive so right there shows that she does not understand what love is so once ben says or does something that she does not like it going to be over… She is just playing the game to be in control the whole time that is why she keeps telling him she doesn’t feel assured so she will have control over him and get his attention, after all she already got a rose for needing to be reminded that he liked her when the rose was gonna go to someone else… The most pure woman the this season is linzey and she has a good family that already likes ben too, if she doesn’t get chosen in the end he will be assured of his biggest fear and that is him choosing the right one to marry.

    Comment by phat_matt — February 21, 2012 @ 9:00 am

  31. Ben’s biggest fear, “to choose the wrong one to marry”.

    Comment by phat_matt — February 21, 2012 @ 9:03 am

  32. LOLOLOL really Jenna? You’re not insecure? OHMG. Kacie is no insecure. Nikki is not insecure. Lindzi is not insecure.

    YOU spent your time blubbering, bawling your eyes out, and hiding in bathrooms!

    Like I said – you were put in a high-stress situation & look how you handled it! Oh and “now you know why”? Please. Classic case of someone acting like an idiot, then “over-analyzing” to make themselves feel better. LOL.

    And Jenna? You are NOT like a guy. Out of everything you did/said, THAT was the most unbelievable!!! You are the type of girl guys stay away from!!! How many guys do you know who cry like babies, appear to be on drugs bc they can’t even formulate a sentence since they’re so anxious & wound up, and “over-analyze”? Ummm – NOT MANY!

    My friends & I LOVED when you were on the show bc we had someone to make fun of!!! Our fave still is “I’m like a guy” – hahahahaha. Yeah. Keep tellin yourself that!!!

  33. And I like how you say I’m better off being nobody. LOL. Are you “somebody” because you made an @$$ of yourself on TV and got dumped almost right away? If that’s what being “somebody” means, then yeah – I’d rather continue being “nobody”! (aka, confident, MARRIED, & employed w/a real job)

    Good luck in life, little girl. Based on what America saw, you need it!!!

  34. One more thing – did I ever say or imply that I thought the show is 100% true? Nope! Don’t believe I did. You know what they say when you make assumptions…

    Also, w/regards to “editing”. Yes, producers can obviously edit. However, producers cannot fabricate what you did/said and how you acted. Unless you’re saying you were drugged or a gun was held to your head and you were forced to act like that.

    Excuses, excuses!!!

  35. Last one – my friends & I don’t read your blogs bc we like them… We read them for entertainment value. It’s hysterical how you take yourself so seriously & sooo funny how your blogs lack substance since you’re clearly just trying to gain everyone’s approval! LOL

  38. Thanks for the unique suggestion of “yoga”, but I think I’ll take tips on R&R from those who are emotionally stable.

  39. ben is going to pick Courtney the CRAZY girl and he WILL REGRET IT. i READ IN THE “IN TOUCH” magizine that while Courtney is on the show she was dating an much older man because he has alot of money and I also read in the magizine where it said that Courtney’s ex before the much older man said she would break Ben’s heart. It read that she used the guy BEFORE the much older man came along because she found out the older man had MORE MONEY and he also said that Courtney’s mother said that Courtney always dates guys much better looking than Ben and the way it read Courtney’s ex befire the older man contacts Ben and warns him about her so I don’t know what si going to hapopen. I wanted him to pick Kacie B. but that isn’t going to happen now. I saw a commercial were it showed a lady walking from about knee down to Ben’s room and it said she wanted ANSWERS SO I AM ASSUMING IT MUST BE KACIE B WANTING ANSWERS THEN WHEN SHE LEFT IT SHOWED BEN LIKE HE WAS DISAPPOINTED AND HE SAID BOY HE HAD HIS WORK CUT OUT FOR HIM ON THIS ONE NOW so I don’t know what happens but I can’t wait to see and the magizine also read that Courtney is just playing Ben and NONE OF THE THINGS SHE HAS DONE OR SAID IS REAL…. how sad, how can someone mess with someones heart like that ? Keep watching with me and pray and hope he DOESN’T pick Courtney and if he does he deserves what he gets is the way I look at it!!!!

  40. I think Courtney is not being honest at all. I think she’s just playing to win the game! Hasn’t anyone noticed that she never looks Ben in the eye when she’s talking. She had trouble telling him she loved him! I think she’s a phony person and it will never last if Ben chooses her!

  41. @ Terri’s comment above — Maybe the person knocking on the door is ASHLEY from last season’s Bachelorette! Wouldn’t that be a gas!?

  42. Jenna, You keep it up girl! You were there and know the girls the best! You have the most credit!

    When people think that they can be a critic when they’ve never been in your shoe they have a problem.

    You are a beautiful person inside and out and I am so glad that everyone is getting to see that!!

    Keep them coming girl, YOURS is the only one I read every week!!
