Have they sent home that insufferable model yet?

Thankfully not, since she's been the most entertaining. Loved how she was prancing around in a bikini in the background when he was talking to one of the other chicks. I seriously doubt he's going to pick her though. She'll be a natural for Bachelor Pad.

I think Lindzi and Kacie B. are the favorites at this point.

Agreed. This season has been incredibly weak IMO. Ben sucks -- he's been the male equivalent to Ashley.

I can't believe he sent the redhead home last week. She was the prettiest of the bunch.

Courtney's face looks like a puckered asshole. Plus, she's just a fucking weirdo. Definitely the most entertaining, though.

I love that they pretty much forced the blonde girl to home because she may have had feelings for someone back home. It's OK for this douchebag to try and fuck 25 different women, but that other shit will not be tolerated.

Ben is kinda turning out to be a dick.

The chick trying to straddle him was really awkward. It was obvious she was trying to act like someone she is not. Poor girl. Embarrass yourself on TV and then get your ass sent home shortly after for your trouble.

Blakeley's downfall may have been those horrendous jumper-like things she was wearing. Horrible. Looked like something a young girl would wear.

I don't like Ben so I'm hoping he sticks with Courtney until the end as she is at least entertaining and she would probably dump him as soon as the show ended.

I hope he picks Courtney too. She's a twat and he's a douche they can both be "winning" together.

I wish one of these women would leave the show, having state what a horrible judge of character Ben is. Ben is a terrible "catch".

at the blonde who hates Courtney getting booted. Priceless look on her face. I'm surprised she didn't say anything further to him re: Courtney...or maybe she's hoping he goes for her.

I can't imagine that Ben would want to stay with Courtney after watching the season on TV. If he does, he deserves all the misery in the world.

Ben has sent home probably two of top four matches for him - Jennifer and Emily. But then again, he's an idiot.

I am amazed at how so many people are just appalled that Ben hasn't given Courtney the heave-ho. This includes my wife and every other woman that I know who watches the show. Do any of these possible scenarios occur to these viewers?:

        Another scenario: he's a dumbass.

        This is where my money goes. There's not been a stand-up, non-douchebag guy on this show yet.

        Maybe. Though I'm convinced that somehow these guys are made aware of what is going on outside of their "dates". Either they are privy to some of the footage or somebody briefs them on the goings on. I don't think they live in a bubble. Ashley turned 180 degrees on Bentley last season when she met with him in the hotel. Why? Did she all of a sudden have an epiphany? More likely, they showed her footage of him trashing her so the show could move on.

        Though if my theory is correct, I'm not sure how to explain Jake's final decision.

        Ben's going on 4 hometown visits. I thought the magic number was 3 in the past. So he'll go to meet 4 families and ask for their daughter's hand in marriage if he chooses her? If I were on one of these shows when I was younger and tried to bring the show to meet my family, they'd laugh at me. And if my daughter tried to bring some guy home she met on a reality show with him asking for her hand in marriage if he chooses her, I'd shoot him, followed by her, the cameramen, and the producers.

        The whole premise of the show is silly (Barbara Walters got that right). But I do enjoy it as a sort of HD National Geographic with resonably cute actors.

        I've liked Emily and Kacie B the most (though I'm turned off by Kacie's potty mouth), but as this joke of a show goes, it was kind of refreshing (to put it lightly) to hear Courtney say, "It's not like he's the only guy in the world," or something to that effect. Everyone put their hands over their mouths and gasped like she'd just revealed she had sex with Chris Harrison or something. Based on that utterance alone, I'm Team Courtney now.

              Tommy, you've just exhibited classic "responding to a post not written."

              You seem to be under the impression I said "I don't understand why he keeps Courtney."

              But I didn't.

              So everything you just wrote, doesn't apply to what you quoted. It's a valid opinion, but not in response to me.

              Yeah, I was when the others were aghast at that comment.

              If Ben ends with Courtney, he deserves it, the rest of the remaining deserve someone much better than him. Since Kacie has been one of favorites since the beginning of the season this article about her makes her even cooler.

              Perhaps that is what happened, and if so, my mistake. I do find it hilarious that viewers seem to vilify Courtney, yet other women like the recently departed Emily get a pass because they aren't as outwardly "mean". None of these women are likely to give two shits about Ben once its all over. It was glaringly obvious that Emily didn't care about Ben, she just wanted to get farther than Courtney. So why is Courtney such a horrible choice in the end while a lunatic like Emily would have been considered an acceptable selection? I don't see the difference.

              Sucks for Kacie going home this week, pretty obvious on the hometown date he was going to eliminate her. She is from a conservative family in Tenessee, and her dad doesn't drink. He is a winemaker from California.

              Hometown episode is always the most boring since there's no conflict.
