Here it is late Wednesday, and Monday’s episode of “The Bachelor” keeps bugging me. I mean, any gal who stages a mock wedding has got to be unhinged, right? The fact that Ben didn’t send her packing speaks volumes. Sooooo, due to my preoccupation, I had to go back and watch the last few minutes of this weeks episode. I was so caught up in Kacie B. getting the boot, that I’ve been neglecting to speculate on who it is that’s going to be making a comeback appearance. Who could it be? I’m just not sure! Any thoughts on that? Could Shawntel be crashing the show again? That would be awkward!
One thing I do know after rewatching the ending: Kacie B. handled herself with such class and restraint at the end when she had her final conversation with Ben. She saved her breakdown/freak-out for the limo ride. Watching her be so kind to Ben, I couldn’t help but think how Ben is really missing out! I can’t believe what he’s getting himself into with Courtney. He’ll find out soon enough, though.
A thought crossed my mind that Kacie B. could be the next bachelorette, but Emily (from Brad’s second go-’round is all set for that). Honestly, I don’t think Kacie B. will be on the market long enough to sit through a season of “The Bachelorette” followed by a season of “The Bachelor” before getting her own shot. Some man near her is going to realize what a catch she is and make a move. Smart man. Dear Kacie B., don’t cry over Ben. Be grateful he showed his true colors before you got too involved. Take what you’ve learned and move on. Next!!
And then there are Lindzi and Nicki. During the rose ceremony, the look on Lindzi’s face showed she was certain it was her time to go home. Then when she got the rose and it was down to Kacie and Nicki, poor Nicki looked like she’d just ran over her dog. She thought was out the door. So to then watch them standing by as Ben announced they would all be traveling to Switzerland — it was painful, just awful! Come along for the ride ladies, as Bachelor Ben strings you along on his way to propose to Courtney. Ugh.
I know, I know. You may be saying, How can we be sure he chooses Courtney in the end? Well, besides my gut feeling, I have one other piece of circumstantial evidence. I know someone who lives in Scottsdale, AZ (Courtney’s hometown, remember), and this someone who lives in Scottsdale is a hair stylist. This stylist posted a picture to facebook of said stylist with Bachelor Ben, after having given Ben a trim. This was no more than two weeks ago. Coincidence? I don’t think so. I think Ben was in town to see his gal. When I saw this photo on fb, I didn’t think much of it, other than a passing Oh wow, six degrees of separation type of thing. Then after Monday’s hometown dates, it hit me. Bleh. So now that spoiler is out of the bag.
Maybe I’m wrong. We’ll all have to tune in Monday to see who the mystery gal is, see how those dates in Switzerland turn out. At this point, I can’t look away just yet.
