ABCs The Bachelor Ben Flajnik Season thread starts 1/2/2012




Well its the start of the new season of the Bachelor, this time we are getting Ben from this past season of the Bachelorette. I will forever love this trainwreck of a show.

I think that is a bit harsh actually and insulting to these women.
Blakeley for instance prefers the title "VIP Cocktail Waitress."

I don't see the appeal of Ben, he had a boring personality on season where he was runner-up just by virtue of being less objectionable than the others, except for the eventual chump Ashley picked.

At least he doesn't need therapy like Brad or is a creep like Jake who couldn't stop crying.

I don't either although I do envy his hair.

I'm positive I've seen Blakeley in bikini modeling shows on HDNET or something like that and in Maxim. She is a gorgeous woman and that dress wasn't even all that flattering on her.

I think I've seen Courtney somewhere before too - although not surprising since she's a declared model.

There seems to be a good amount of talent on this one but maybe that's just me - they seemingly packed the house with brunettes.

That crying chick was probably in the bathroom crying for 2 minutes and they made it seem like 2 hours.

Courtney looks like the younger Kardashian twins. I like the chick from Detroit who didn't even bother to introduce herself. Nice try to appear mysterious... see ya!

Oh and the chick in the 3rd row, 3rd column looks a little downsey.

here is one of the Blakely pictures I found online


I thik my favorite girl so far is Kacie, the brunnette from Tennesee. After Lindsey was done crying in the Bathroom, it seemed pretty obvious they were going to keep the drama.

My gf said that Courtney was on the cover of Playboy. Too lazy to verify, but wouldn't be surprising.

ETA: Nope. Not Playboy.

The crying chick is a nutjob. It's gonna be fun seeing her meltdown. She has the worst faces.

Two that he sent home were among the prettiest in the house. The chick who fed him candy and the eater of cow nuts.

Courtney's features are too harsh and severe, kinda like Salma Hayak. The eyebrows are to much.

Blakeley kinda looks like Heidi Fleiss, maybe evem manlier.

The cattiness is awesome. Ragging on the girl who rode in on the horse when most of their entrance charades were much goofier or obnoxious.

I wish he had kept Shawntel, I like her and frankly, she's better looking than most of the girls left.

Glad that law student chick is gone, she's ugly, boring, and very weird.

I don't understand the Chantal thing. Did they used to date or did she just want in on this season? They didn't make it clear. But who knows - the producers probably paid her to crash the party and manufacture drama.

If that was the blonde, I agree. Weird looking face.

Wasn't she the blonde that looked like Hatchet Face from the John Waters' movie Cry-Baby?

Ben is a duff! I get the feeling he's just putting the girls through all sorts of "fluff" dates just to see who will last emotionally through the bachelor gauntlet.

Shawntel (Chantal was a different girl from the same "Brad" season) and Ben had been in touch since he was rejected by Ashley. He knew her because he'd watched Brad's season. The connection was apparently mostly via text message, though we don't have all the details. But they did form a connection, which Ben acknowledges it in his blog. So that's where Shawntel was coming from.

Of course she knew he was going to be the bachelor, and she knew who to contact. Of course it was manufactured drama because they could easily have simply told Ben off-line that Shawntel wanted to join the girls and ask him if it was OK. Shawntel's mistake was in thinking Ben is as he appears on TV, or in thinking that their connect was more than it was. If the connection was all that, he wouldn't have accepted being The Bachelor anyway. They certainly both could have met to see what they had before doing it on TV. Ben says in his blog he knew there were ruffled feathers, but he had no idea they treated Shawntel so badly until he saw the episode.

It would have been nice to see Shawntel stay. She is better looking than most who are there, and while looks aren't everything, they don't hurt. But mostly, I just think she's much more "together" than most of these girls. The things the girls were saying were terrible. Completely lacking in class. And Courtney's definitely paragon of maturity ("What's-her-butt").

"Brad's sloppy seconds"
"This bitch..."
"Came riding in on her high hearse..." (OK, that was kinda funny)

I don't know about the rest of you, but it took a show which has always tried to be "glossy" and reduced it into a MTV Win Flavor Flav feel for me (not that I've ever seen that show, but I get the gist from clips).

Ben's sister is better looking than most of the girl's on the show.

Good call above on the Hatchet-Face comparison.

I like the redhead, the bridge-walker, and the one that I think is some kind of nurse. Oh, and the dark-haired Kacee.

The girl with the nose ring can't be 27 y.o., as it states on the show. She looks 40, and alot like Tina Weymouth.

Courtney is just a fugly mess. WTF is wrong with her mouth?

I damn sure wouldn't have sent Blakeley packing (particularly since the other chick just isn't attractive at all) but I knew she was as good as gone when they played up how confident she was going into the 2-on-1.
