Nikki and Ben’s Overnight
Nikki’s date is first up.
A helicopter makes its first appearance in under 5 minutes of the show’s open.
“I felt that we were the only 2 people in Switzerland,” Nikki says as they fly over the Alps.
Ben says, “My relationship with Nikki is getting to new heights. When we’re together you can feel the love,” Ben says. (um, no you can’t Ben!)
Ben and Nikki land atop a mountain to picnic and frolic. Nikki is smitten. Ben is bored and boring, yet again.
Ben says, “Spending the day with Nikki I feel like I always have a smile on my face. I’m hoping she’ll say yes to an overnite. It feels like we’re continuing our love story.”
The helipcopter drops them on top another cliff and they make out and say more metaphors about climbing to new heights of their reliationship – (pass the barf bag)
At night they go to a log cabin. it’s very romantic. Ben says, “Everytime i see Nikki I have a better time than the last. Those are really good signs.”
We learn that Ben would like to have 4 kids … the more the merrier. When the date card gets pulled out Nikki says, “I will accept it.” (duh)
The fantasy suite includes a hot tub – shocker – there it is – the holy grail – the fourescent blue hot tub. Nikki and Ben suds each other up and suddenly Nikki’s legs are straddling Ben and (fade to black).
Lindzi and Ben’s Overnight
Lindzi is second date. Again, they save Courtney for last.
It’s another adrenaline date. Ben’s like, “Holy crap. we are repelling.” Lindzi is freaking out but it is just another opportunity for gag-inducing love metaphors.
“Looking down is terrifying, but it may bring us closer together.”
They survive the repelling drama and then it’s off to hot tub scene #2.
“I’m noticing more of a passionate side to Lindzi,’ Ben says as they rub each other up and down.
Lindzi lets it known that, “I absolutely know for a fact that I realy like you and that I’m falling in love with you.”
Enter date card, ” fantasy suite -
Lindzi says, ” Normally I don’t just stay the nite with anyone, but I … would love to. I would love to spend more time with you, Ben.”
“I’m honored that she wants to spend the rest of the nite together,” – Ben says with much joy (yes, I get to bag another babe!)
“I could spend the rest of my life with Ben and be really happy,” Lindzi admits.
Courtney and Ben’s Overnight
Courtney and Ben’s overnight date is riddled with twists and turns and talks about her being a bitch to the other girls and Ben confronting her and Courtney putting a bow on it and Ben feeling better and then Kacie showing up and then Ben feeling worse and then Ben being confused…. but not really.
Ben and Courtney take a train through the beautiful countryside. It’s all very cosy.
“It’s really magical. It’s one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been. I feel like we’re in a painting,” Courtney says and she is right… it looks pretty stunning!
They stop in a cute town and shop for picnic gooies – swiss cheeese., bread. Courtney feels like the luckiest girl.
But then – doo doo – Ben is concerned about her actions with the other ladies. Courtney is scared this will cause her to lose her man, (oh, but there are other men in the sea.)
“He is everything. He’s eveything I’ve ever dreamed of and wanted. There’s just a dark cloud over me. The fear of losing him. I don’t know if we can recover from this.” she says. “I realized today how much I love Ben and how much I’m afraid of losing him. I’m disappointed in how I was. I need to tell him how I feel.”
Courtney says she has trust issues with men and women. “I don’t want you to feel like I’m being fake.”
Ben’s like, “That’s not my concern. I feel like I know you. It’s hard for me to hear those other things.”
Courtney says, “I think that I’ve been totally immatrure at times. and I’m sorry that I maybe said some things I shouldn’t have, when Emily left I was excited. it was mean, but I was excited. – moving forward I think you have a good sense of who I am. – I want normal in my life. and you are that. I see this great man. that’s all I want.”
Ben buys it. They toast (clink). Ben is at peace, “I was having huge doubts and concerns in this relationship.” but now he can boink her guilt-free.
Enter – the date card.
“After having such a difficult conversation I know I’m ready to take our relationship to the next step. To have uninterrupted … everything!” – Ben says.
“This is a perfect, romantic setting and it’s only gonna get better.” – Courtney suggests.
The bear skin rug does not go unnoticed by either of them. lol They put on bathing suits and they climb in a 2-seater hot tub and go at it.
Ben’s like, “This is hands down the smallest hot tub I’ve ever been in my life, and I’m not complaining!”
Emily Maynard Preview
Next up we get a sneak peak of Emily Maynard prepping for being the Bachelorette. It is full on ridiculousness. Ali and Ashley arrive at Emily’s door for some pre-Bachelorette cheerleading. They all get their makeup done up and slip into some super tight dresses and off they go to watch The Titanic 3D. That’s rich – put on tons of makeup and mascara then go watch the saddest movie ever so you can cry it all off down your face! Not sure how this is supposed to get us excited about the next season of The Bachelorette, except that it might be just as tragic as Titanic….but what EV.
This is just uncomfortable to watch. Kacie comes back and knocks on Ben’s door to get some answers. Let’s recall that Ben barely said a word as she cried her eyes out at the exit convo before she was taken away in the black limo. Now this girl has returned for some more of Ben’s blasse bedside manner.
“Wow this is a suprise, “- Ben says. As Kacie enters his room so nervous and shaky she can barely speak, “I’m a hot mess.”
Kacie tells Ben, “I have come here because I feel like when I left i was in such shock I didn’t know what to say. I don’t know what happened. You’ve had your heart broken before, I’m sure you’ve wanted answers. I was hoping you’d tell me what happened. I didn’t see that coming at all and it’s hard for me to get that out of my time.”
Wow that is a whole lot of stuff Ben just really doesn’t have time for.
“I think for me, I feel like we are worlds apart in where we come from. Very different backgrounds. In all fairness to you and your family I coudln’t have given you all the things you need from me. You didn’t do antyhing wrong. It’s just that did I see you in the end? No.” - RAD another rough around the edges dump from Ben.
Kacie is balling, “I do respect my parents. but what makes them happy (me being celibate) doesn’t necessarily make me happy.”
Then Kacie with nothing more to lose begins, “I do love you and I do care about you – I feel like, that if you were to choose Courtney you would get your heart broken.”
Ben would love to hear why.
“I’ve watched her for a while. It seems like she’s in this to win it. She has made comments like ‘if it’s not Ben there are other fish in the sea’..it makes me sick to think you could be hurt again.”
“I’m tring to process all this stuff. ‘ Ben says
Kacie finally leaves where she collapses on her back on the floor outside his hotel room because she is so overcome with her feelings.
The Rose Ceremony
Ben is so confused, “I was getting to a good place with Courtney, but Kacie stirred the pot again.
…which life do I want to be apart of… which life do I want to make part of mine.”
Lindzi gets first rose.
And despite what Kacie said, Ben lets his penis do the picking (as millionaire matchmaker would say) and gives Courtney a rose. (like there was any doubt.)
Ben says more to Nikki on the exit than he did to Kacie including, “I cried a little bit today, I’m not gonna lie.’
Snot is dripping down Nikki’s nose. Why don’t they give these girls tissues??
