The Bachelor: Does Ben Flajnik Regret Skinny Dipping?

January 31, 2012 09:19 AM by Megan Thompson

The Bachelor was all about Courtney Robertson and her trying to win Ben’s heart.  Courtney had a sneaky plan to lure Ben to the beach and go skinny dipping.  It seemed Ben had no problem taking off his clothes and skinny dipping with the model.  But does Ben now regret his choice to take his clothes off on the hit ABC show?  Keep reading to find out!

Once again, Courtney was the center of attention on last night’s episode of The Bachelor.  When Courtney didn’t get the rose on the group date, she was not “winning” and wanted to make an impression on Ben.   Courtney teased Ben about going skinny dipping, but she later planned a secret rendezvous to fulfill her promise.

After Ben got home from dumping Elyse, he found Courtney waiting on the steps for him dressed in her robe.  Courtney tells the cameras, “I don’t know if he has ever skinny dipped with a model before?  It could be fun?”  Yes, Courtney – we all know you’re a model. After some wine, and not so much convincing on Courtney’s part, the two hit the beach.  Ben says, “Why not, why the hell not.”  Clothes were taken off and the two run in the water with each other for some alone time.  

When Ben enters the rose ceremony, he feels some guilt for his little romp with Courtney. Ben tells the cameras, “I feel kind of crappy about what happened.  There are other women here that I need to explore relationships with.”  But today Ben told People, “I will admit that at the time I wasn’t thinking of the other women and how it would make them feel, I’m sorry for that, but I can’t blame Courtney for going out of her way to spend more time with me – that’s why we are all here.” 

So is Ben defending his possible new fiancée Courtney?  What did you think about Courtney’s sneaky move to lure Ben to the beach?  Let us know your thoughts, leave us a comment below.

    Courtney is going to break his heart. She is all about winning just to win, and showing up the other girls. Insincere, arrogant, conceited.

    Courtney is just on the show to win the game, she doesn’t seem to want to get married to Ben. I hope when she watches herself on tv she is embarrassed of her behavior , this girl has no class. I doubt he picks any of them and ends up with Shawntel.

    Being in a relationship is hard enough without doing something stupid in front of a camera. Courtney obviously preforms better in front of the camera than anyone. I think it shows low self esteem and lack of morals on her part. Sex is sex, but love is totally different. If you want sex you can find Courtney anywhere Ben. If you want a personal fulfilling relationship you have to be a lil stronger and leave the trash at the side of the road where it belongs. I would be imbarrased to know what the people of your lil hometouwn would have to say about her and trusting her with their hubbies. If you are serious about a life with a woman, find a woman for life. Your dad would be proud if you were in college doing stupid things, not bearing his name and doing stupid things on national television. Sorry kiddo. I think your georgous and all, but being the mother of 5, I would not want my children to see what I saw last night if I were you. Hugs… Another Mom.

    Courtney is a whore and if Ben can’t see that then maybe they deserve each other.

    I really hate that he wanted a real true relationship and fell into the web of this lil porn star. She obviously performs better in front of the camera than most. I would be embarrased to take her home to my family or my town. What will the other women say about her and who would let her around thier husband? Not me. Sorry Ben, but I could see a college student make this stupid move, not a grown man looking for true love. I honestly dont think your ready for a real love relationship if you are acting this way

    Courtney is a slut! Ben should have used better judgement. Now he has to live with possiably loosing a girl who could of been his fiancee.

    that model has little respect for anyone, not even herself, she plays dirty, it is not Ben she wants it is just to win, she will do anything to do so includeing take off her clothing have sex with a stranger, It is all a game to her. There are some really good girls of the show who really are tring to have a real life with Ben hope he can see through to shame of the nasty _ _ _ _

    I liked Ben until last nights skinny dipping. I think it shows how little he thinks of himself. PS Get a hair cut!!!

  10. srle Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 11:42 am

    I think Ben is really stupid not to see what she is doing. How much more evident can it be. Ben wake up. You are showing so much disrespect for the other girls, you are so stupid. I’m glad you didn’t get picked before. You are not worth it. Give the other girls a chance. And when youn are talking to one girl and Courtney interupts, tell her to gon away you are talking to this one now. Her turn will come later. You had better change your thinking or you are going to be really hurt in the end, especially if you end up with courtney, she is just trying to win this, and doesn’t care a thing about you. You are just a game to her. So grow up little boy.

    I thought the skinny dipping was in very poor taste, and spoke about the absence of morality of Ben and Courtney. It was offensive and disrespectful to the rest of the contestants!! Very disappointing part of the show.

  12. Suzanne Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    Ben should feel ashamed and humiliated. He was PLAYED like a finely tuned violin by a pro. For him to allow this spoiled brat to manipulate him, he was thinking with his little head just like a teenage BOY.

    This shows his character to be one of an opportunist and NOT ready for marriage.

  13. L Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 12:15 pm

    They’re both just looking for future stardom and they are both disgusting.

  14. emma Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    Ben defends Courtney by saying she “just wants more time with me”. I hate to break it to you Ben, but she’s manipulated you to get more time on camera to promote her modeling career and to prove she is “WINNING”- and you are the prize. It has absolutely nothing to do with an attraction to you, or wanting to build a relationship with you. I think once Courtney “wins” she will drop Ben so fast he won’t know what hit him. I hate to see Ben manipulated and used, but I am disappointed in him for turning a deaf eye and rewarding and participating in her selfish, childish behavior. It makes me wonder if he is really there to feed his wounded pride and prove he can still get the girl. A sneaky one night stand behind everyone’s back, while claiming to be looking for love, commitment and marriage, isn’t my idea of truth and noble intentions. Maybe they deserve each other after all.

  15. Sheila Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    That was an awful thing to do, I really thought you were a great guy. Courtney is not the girl for you!!!

  16. yvonne Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 3:12 pm

    I think it is pretty clear why Ben is single. Women play with him like putty. He does not have a clear vision of what is best for him. He has a lot of growing up to do!

  17. lynda jazz Says:

    same old story with this show….courtney (the slut) will win, get her name on tv and dump ben in a matter of weeks……

    I think Courtney is trash! Come on Ben, wake up!

  19. Roberta Says:

    Ben is really a creep. I mean you cannot be more insincere. He wants only one thing and he got it a plastic woman.

    I don’t think Ben is a catch either…watching him with Courtney last night showed how selfish he is… they deserve each other. Ick!

    Soooooo trashy. Same old crap…..

  23. gizmo7229 Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    Congrats Ben you will be a LOSER for the second time. First Ashley and now Courtney. She only wants to win, doesn’t care about Ben. I’m done watching. I heard he picked her and ABC is showing more of her. Ben is making excuses for his poor judgement in picking trash. He doesn’t want a serious relationship, because she is the farthest from wanting a relationship.

  24. Mary Sorenson Says:

    Could you just see that she could now be pregnant?

  25. kat Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    Does whore sound right? sounds right to me! I mean, wow, if she can do all that on national t.v. imangine what she’s like when the cameras aren’t there. Bet she has practiced this kind of moves on several men. Poor guys, sinking to the devils feet.

  26. leigh Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    Courney looks great in her modeling gig pics, but not nearly as attractive on the show. Hmmmm, maybe it is her personallity that makes her so much less appealing. No, she’s just not all that!

  27. Dianne Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    I think Courtney is the least attractive & least personable of all the contestants………Ben doesn’t seem to see it as all the girls do, and all the TV viewers. Hope he does NOT end up with her…..would be a very poor choice.

  28. Sally Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    I really don’t think Ben is stupid.He’s a MAN,but he’ll figure it out.She’s a phony and everyone knows it.This is why we are all watching it…Ratings,ratings,ratings.I agree that he’s kind of cute but needs a new hairdo.But he DID go for Ashley so…

  29. Mary Jo Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 7:03 pm

    Courtney is playing Ben just to win and have her modeling career advanced with being on the program and probably winning Ben in the end. However, it will not last and Ben will end up getting hurt again. For his sake, I hope he wakes up and realizes what she is really up to before he sends another “real” woman home. Sometimes I wonder if the tv program just does this for ratings.

  30. Debbie Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    When/if the other girls find out about this stunt, they should all get up and walk off the show! He is not who I thought he was. Ashley is sooo lucky she didn’t pick him! He’s a loser…and he’s hangin’ with his perfect loser match! He’s a creep and she’s a manipulative slut! He should have NEVER been cast as the Bachelor. There are plenty of other guys out there that REALLY want to find love! OMG….he just creeps me out!!! And, goody, next season we get to watch FAKE Emily!

  31. Jetwoman Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    Ben is boring and immature. Plus he is an idiot. There are some fabulous women on the show. For their sake I hope he winds up with Courtney. I really like the woman who left because she didn’t want to participate in this ridiculous situation. It has reached a new and crass low this season.

  32. jon Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    Ben has a disadvantage in that he really does not know what Courtney is really like with the other girls. When anyone has anything ugly to say about anyone….it usually is either a very conceited person or someone whose self esteem is so low they need to put others down. Courtney has not had any lasting relationships by her own accord and it is probably because she is negative about everything and everyone. On the other hand, Ben….shame on you….if I had been any kind of good girl and knew that you did that…I would leave the show and you. If a man is so quick to get naked with as girl he hardly knows anything about….he definitely will do it again behind my back. You really showed your ass Ben!!!

  33. Kim Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    I lost respect for Ben last night. In fairness to him, he didn’t see what we all see about the way Courtney acts, but, really? You get naked & have sex with someone you barely know. And it’s caught on camera too, & you know that? Which makes me wonder how much of this is set up for ratings. It’s hard to believe that there are real people out there like Courtney. No, let me rephrase that ~ that they show themselves in such a bad light knowing that millions people are going to see it. Doesn’t she have parents & family she’s concerned about looking bad in front of? Of course she didn’t turn out this way learning the right things. How could anyone think that is an attractive attitude? Ben just followed her like a lamb & he didn’t even seem sure of himself or stick to any morals. Weak. There is not much to like about Courtney & I wish she’d go away. I can hardly stand looking at her anymore. She is pretty except for her mouth which reminds me of a porpoise. Sorry, but the truth. Courtney is always whiny & complaining around Ben too. Use your brain Ben.

  34. Terry Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    How in the world Courtney became a model in the first place is a joke. Those bird lips are twisted most of the time on the show. She broke the rules and should be removed from the show. If he picks her, I will never watch that show again! Where is his class, going skinny dipping. She’s nothing to take home to mom!!!

  35. steve Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    I of all people whould have never thought that I would be watching this show, but Courtney cant call anybody else a stripper or a slut, because after tonight she proved that she was both, she dont love him its all about TV time, a crushing possible real loves for some of these girls, just hope he looks past the looks, who cares if you are a model..

  36. Mary Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    I lost respect for Ben after that skinny dipping episode. I think he needs to start listening to the other women about Courtney and not give her a rose next week. She needs to go and he needs to keep someone that is there to find love with him. But there always has to be one bad apple in the bunch to make it more entertaining but enough is enough.

  37. Gayle Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    Ben, Ben, Ben! Wake up. Where are your morales, and did you check your character at the door? You seemed much wiser than you are. I thought you had some class as well. I bet your Dad is ashamed of you. It’s sad that you will carry his name but not his class.
    Courtney is nothing but a buck-tooth tramp that is playing you, your ego), like a snake charmer. She doesn’t want you…she only wants to WIN so the women she has cussed and mistreated, don’t. Most of the other women are sincere, sweet and kind. Courtney among them is like a mule in a horse parade! Totally out of place. You better pray God gives you some wisdom because you didn’t bring any to this party. You offended me, my 93 year old mom and lots of other classy women. BAD DOG!!! You need to grow some class and some
    you-know-whats. Tell that hog to back off and write when she gets a REAL job. She is NOT for you. You’re much smarter than that…or are you?

  38. kathi Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    I “thought” that I liked Ben; now I see that he and Courtney deserve each other.

    I also “thought” that I liked Jake, but he showed his true colors when he picked lust (Vienna) over love (Tenley). He also got what he deserved

  39. teresa Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    Ben should let courtney go and stick with the rules of the game if she broke the rules she should be let go, I bet if it was one of the other women he would have let them go, she is trashy and that is what the ratings wants. I hope he lets her go.

  40. Sandie Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    I see another Jake and V on the horizon…Damn it Ben, think with your head…..the one on your shoulders!

  41. V Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    I agree with most of the comments already made. It was in very poor taste and was most likely scripted since this is reality TV. It seems the show keeps pushing the envelope a little further each episode. Courtney is the current villain of the show. No one can stand her and we’re not supposed to like her, but the fact that Ben ever gave her extra time shows his lack of character. Also I liked Jennifer, but in my opinion, she’s better off without him!

  42. Margaret Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    Normally, I wouldn’t comment on one’s looks. However, given the ego of Courtney and reminding us that she is a model, she is not very attractive. And with her horrible behavior, she is even less attractive. I would be mortified if this were my daughter acting in this manner! And shame on Ben for falling for it!

  43. Judi Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    Very disappointed in Ben, it has changed my opinion of the show ……and I have watched all seasons of Bachelor.

  44. G Says:

    Courtney, such a slut. I can’t wait for him to drop her.

  45. Myblueocean Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    I thought Ben was a respectable man but after watching last night’s show, I have changed my mind. Doesn’t he know that whoever he chooses will watch the show at a later date and find out what he did with Courtney? Ben was sooo disrespectful of the other women.

  46. Nancy Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    I think it says it all when Courtney says ” I wonder if Ben has ever skinny dipped with a MODEL!!”

    Obviously she is very into herself and her physicality.

    PS NO soul just a fake n bake girl

  47. Jackie S Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 8:38 pm

    I was very upset to see Ben fall for Courtney the conceited model slut’s plan. I guess we all know what kind of model she really is. I hope he gets rid of her next week cause she’s troubled trash. I think he needs someone like Nikki. I’m not so sure that I care for Blakely either. Wake up Ben!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  48. monie Says:

    January 31st, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    I’m very curious to see and hear Ben’s mother and sister’s reaction to Courtney if he brings her home. They will see right through her. She has no inner beauty and I don’t see any outer beauty either. She’s hateful, spiteful, mean spirited and self-centered beyond belief. I am nauseated when I see her or listen to her. Last week it was, “I’d like to rip her head off!” This week, Ben acted more like a 16 year old with his hormones raging than an intelligent, mature, considerate man in his 30′s. I liked him last year – he seemed sincere. This year it’s as though his selfish evil twin has come forth. I was shocked when he sent that lovely redheaded girl home – after seeing the show every week, however, I’m sure she will be grateful she escaped a fate worse than death. Ben and Courtney deserve each other!

  50. K.C. McElroy Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    Courtney is just using Ben, because she is jealous of KaceyB, who I really believes has a chance at and could end up with Ben. Ben and KaceyB look great together!
    I’m sorry that Emily was dumped from the show for trying to be honest. But I think that she should have talked with Ben about them 2(Emily and Ben).

  51. Sue Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 9:26 pm

    Bachelor better wake up were tired of seeing the sluts get the guy.Courtney has probally ended up with Ben and it wont last.Wed like to see another wedding come from the show ,not the trash they are showing

  52. Maggie Coughlan Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    Ben:
    I was born and raised in Sonoma. In fact my sister in law has a winery there. I can tell you your the talk of the town,but not in the same way you were. It was a positive and proud way till you hooked up with that skank, Courtney. Seriously, you must see through her? the way she interupts when your with another woman, and throws herself at you, and always mentions shes a model. Shes probably a porn star not a regular model. You should have sent her home last night. What she did should have shown you, she was a low life, among the other good, and beautiful women. Im sure Sonoma’s fine people, are shaking their heads today. I think your adorable and smart.Please work on your “smarts”.

  53. lori Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    I think Ben made a big mistake in judgement. If I WAS ONE OF THOSE OTHER GIRLS,I WOULD NOT EVEN WANT Ben now.

  54. Janet Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    First of all, Ben needs a new hair style. It is a mess. Second of all, he is definitely being played by Courtney. I agree she is in this to win and for publicity only. There are far cuter, nicer girls on the show. In fact he just dumped one of them who had a lot more to offer. Don’t men realize if a girl is so quick to go skinny
    dipping and have sex with a guy she bearly knows, she will do the same with any number of guys. Is this sleezy gal the type you would want for your wife? If so, you deserve what you get.

  55. Patti Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    Another stupid guy is all I can say. I totally lost all respect for him. AFter sending that sweet girl home, if he had any class at all, he would have said, “no, this isn’t right. You need to go back to your room.” But no, he didn’t do that. Isn’t this against the rules? Who cares, right Ben?

    All I can say – if he did end up with someone other than Courtney, she is definitely not very happy right now. Probably wondering what kind of guy he is.

    They deserve one anohter

  56. Hannah Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    Courtney is a conceited arrogant bitch and I hope her true colors come out. Ben needs to see her for who she is and send her ass home!

  57. Megan Says:
    January 31st, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    I am so disappointed in Ben. I thought he had more class and morals than he showed last night, but again, isn’t that the way ALL men think and re-act when a woman tries to seduce him?

  58. Susan Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 12:06 am

    Typical man and Courtney knows how to be a slut to get what she wants as she makes the rules and Ben falls for it. I don’t think he was sorry at all, just guilty facing the other women and if they knew at the rose ceremony what happened I wonder how many would have walked out. This is not a guy you would want to marry and the women need to know about this escapade naked in the water together putting it nicely.

  59. Donna Allen Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 12:10 am

    Ben…come on now! Where Courtney is concerned,open your eyes! Listen to what some of the girls on the show are saying to you about her..and your fans. Courtney is sneaky, fake and totally out to win for all the wrong reason’s! There’s some of the other girls that are truly sincere and Courtney is not one of them!!

  60. someone Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 12:11 am

    No way will she win…Most of these girls couldnt care less about this chump. they’re in it to get camera time and possibly a show of their own. i will say this, the one he sent home last night was probably one of the few that like him

  61. Sherry Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 12:16 am

    If as has been hinted, Ben does choose Courtney, I think HE managed to fool us all. He’s not the person we thought he was on The Bachelorette! Perhaps, they deserve each other…. which, just for clarification Ben, is NOT a compliment!

  62. Las Vegas Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 12:26 am

    I felt that Courtney should have been disqualified for breaking the rules, and right in front of the girls that she made fun of all these weeks. They need to crack down on these shows so they can get back to what it’s all about, falling in love, the real way, not the evil way. What are these shows turning into?

  63. JoAnn Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 12:29 am

    HELP! The bachelor is mired in the apocolypse, and the Devil is a she named Courtney. Scheamer, liar, ugly,hater, boney-assed sleeze bucket. I may know only one reason was kept since the producers seem to thrive on junior high school immaturity. Or second, soSaturday we can say, “Look at her dumb assleave.
    Ben is know better. He and his family portrayed him to have a close family, humility, and struck over the loss of his dad.Gee, did the skinny dipping with the most sleazy, probably syphiletic date ever.hateful bachelorette cure that/ Ben isn;t cut out to be the sophisticaed owner of a winery at this p;oint.Ben proved he is less than admirable. As a matter of fact, he is a disgrace to his family I think. I will keep my girls!~

  64. samsister Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 12:31 am

    Don’t blame him, he’s just another male who’ll take it if it’s rubbed in his face. Only problem is, the nice girls will run away when they find out the skank had sex with a ho.

  65. May Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 1:29 am

    Ben proves he is a sleezebag! Courtney is disgusting. They deserve each other. Yes, he is right, he was not thinking of the other girls. I would have loved for all the other girls to find out and say, not interested any more and walk off the set. This kind of thing makes you not want to watch anymore. I do not enjoy watching people lacking in quality of character. This is not a private thing but for all to see. There are just certain things you do not do. The girls that went home see this and probably feel relieved they did not stay. They are the winners. What a loser!

    The show hit a new low! Maybe Courtney is planted by ABC to add drama to the program. The more Ben tangles with Courtney the more he distance himself from a real woman. Your short term gain Ben is not worth it in the end. Grow up!

    Would any reputable business really want someone representing them in the modeling world? She is cocky,manipulitive and nasty. Who goes skinny dipping and lets be honest we really dont know exact details of what went on in the water if you know what I mean. She is basically a bitch who isnt really that beautiful her actions make her ugly as hell. Now to Ben is he that shallow not to wonder I barely know this girl maybe shes alittle trampy and not marriage material. I hope he starts thinking with his top head SOON!

    I hope if he doesn’t pick Courtney and the one he does pick, drops him when she finds out about that.
    That proves his playin days aren’t over and if he can’t stand up to that kind of temptation how is he going to be faithful in a real relationship?

  71. Karen Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 4:44 am

    Manipulation: ABC is manipulating us into thinking Courtney is a “real” contestant (and model) who’s manipulating Ben. Just goes to show that beauty is really only SKIN deep – and inner beauty is a much more desirable quality.

  72. ngcs Says:

    I hope he picks her because they deserve each other, neither one is it for a relationship. Ben is there to have fun. I pray the other girls see that and drop him like a hot potato. He is so not worth it. They are both scum bags.

  73. Mary Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 5:54 am

    I didn’t think much of Ben before and think even less of him now. How naive can he be? Courtney is a mean, manipulating egomaniac. He is an obvious fool. They deserve each other. As for the other girls…feel lucky that you aren’t stuck with the idiot.

    This show is truly slipping and so are the contestants both male and female. Ben, What were you thinking? Open your eyes or you’re going to be on the wounded knee once again. Would you take Courtney home to meet your Mother and Sister? I hope not.

  75. Grandma Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 6:12 am

    Ben apparently has a serious attraction for trashy women because two of those women, Courtney and one other, are obviously trashy in their personal lives, yet he seems to like them best. He sent home one of the most honest, sincere and loving one there after his romp in the surf with Courtney. He got what he wanted that night, and will most certainly end up with what he wants, but will end up being hurt and lonely again. which is what he deserves. Manipulative, sneaky women use their wiles to get a man, then apply those same tactics to deceive and take from him as much as possible before declaring the no longer love him, when in reality they never did.

  76. NurseKaren Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 6:34 am

    Disappointed! Courtney is pompous and haughty! Very unlikeable. If Ben picks her then he deserves her. He won’t pick her…nah! Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? Old saying but true! I agree with Laurie C, Get a haircut, Ben. Your hair is your downfall.

  77. Karen Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 6:45 am

    I agree with most of these other posts. What I wonder is does this girl have any morals or conscience at all? Does she have parents who will watch this show. Her momma needs to kick her butt a little bit. Who does the things she does to other people. I can’t stand her.

    Ben really disappointed a lot of people Monday evening with his poor judgement. But, it is not the first time. He should make sure his conversations are not interrupted – say NO – say, “I’m sorry, I’m having a conversation. I’ll talk to you later.” Too much kissing and intamicy on this show – I’m really tired of all the tongues! If Ben does propose to anyone, once she watches the show, she will let him loose – big time! He just wants the physical thrills, not a lasting relationship! Ben, you disappoint.

  83. Jo Says:

    Courtney gives models a horrible name. She has no character or compassion for others. Ben obviously doesn’t care about rules and being ethical. Says he wants a family, but must want drama and a “Mother Dearest” as a wife. I pity his family, and further children having a mother with no morals, character, or values. She reminds me of the witch in Cinderella “mirror mirror who’s the greatest of them all”? It’s really sad that Ben had the chance to find a good woman and he blew it with a self-centered, selfish, slut.

    I think that Courtney should have been kicked off the show for breaking the rules. Also that was a little much (skinny dipping) to be shown on the show. Ben wake up !!!!! The rules were put there so that the girls would have a fair chance. They shouldn’t be allowed to do what Courtney did. ABC get with it this isn’t what you should show.

  88. David Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 8:10 am

    I agree with the above comments. I watch the show for its “psychiatric ” implications. Apparently Courtney (not courting) is a “plant” and is following scripted scenarios. Ben had better wake up unless HE is playing games, or is this all just a fantasy? By the way how much does each contestant get for appearing in these games ?

    Attention all commemorators: I think ABC/Bachelor producers are once again manipulating viewers to get ratings. Would we watch the show if it hadn’t been scripted to keep the drama flowing? Also, we are only seeing a small, edited portion of the filming done, and producers are shaping the way we see the events that occurred. I’d drop the show if something else were on in that time slot; maybe I will get some books from the library instead!!

  92. Anna Greenys Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 8:46 am

    ABC should be ashamed of themselves the Show is not fit for PRIME TIME it should be moved to a new network they can call Wh__e Dating. I am a thirteen year old young woman who in the past has enjoyed watching your shows. The past years there have been some things that should have been edited and cut before placing them in the show, and several men and women should never have aired. Once they got out of control thats when Chris should have come in and said, “Time to go now this is not what our show is about.” Can you imagine the ratings then? Ben and Courtney both have no morales and he and she should be asked to leave. Yes people are talking but they aren’t saying anything nice.

  93. Cindy Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 8:49 am

    Ben, I am truly disappointed. That little sex romp with Courtney totally uncalled for. Looking for a wife? I think, not so much. A room full of women, one guy and a nationally syndicated television show, looking for love? I don’t think so. FAME is more like it. This is the first season I have seen the Bachelor make so many guest appearances on the talk show circuit, during the airing of the show. It’s all hype and ratings. It’s sad what happened with Ashley I really felt sorry for Ben. Looking back from this last episode, Ashley dodged a bullet. I have been defending Ben when it comes to Emily’s warnings saying he’s a big boy and he knows what he wants. Throwing someone under the bus doesn’t show integrity. Ben doesn’t show integrity by stripping naked, totally disgusted. Emily deserves better than Ben.

  94. Marye Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 8:56 am

    ABC should have their heads examined for airing such trash. The network should DUMP both BEN and Courtney and anyone not acting their age. This show is on in Prime Time not Male and Female Slut time. The show has gotten progressively worse over the years. it seems the show has turned into a show that teaches nothing but immature behavior by adults and it is on in Prime Time, I vote it be taken Off the air.

  95. Louise Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 9:16 am

    Ben, you knew better than that. I saw the sleeping bag on the side where you went skinny dipping. You were there all night, playing up sex. Now, do you think any of the women will want you? — I sure wouldn’t. Sorry, Ben.

  96. Benjamin Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 9:19 am

    If I were Kassie B. the girl from Tennessee I’d tell him to buzz off and leave the show . She is way to nice a lady to be wasting her time with such a shallow person.
    Kassie B There are better men out there for you.

  97. Louise Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 9:20 am

    Ben, you did the wrong thing when you spent the night with Courtney. Skinny dipping is bad enough especially the way it was handled. It wasn’t something unplanned. Courtney planned it. She didn’t get a rose so she decided to do sex. We saw the sleeping bag so guess you had a night of it. Doubt the other women will want to share their furture with you after this happened. I’m really sorry, because I’ve respected you all this time. So Sorry!

  98. Peggy Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 9:25 am

    I don’t care for Courtney and would not like to see anyone like her end up with any of my boys. The skinny dipping was a stupid idea but you know it had to be part of the ‘staging process’ these reality shows go through. Otherwise, why would the cameras be there? It stuff like this that keeps the viewers and gives us something to hate or love. What I found hilarious was when Courtney was layed back on the couch, arranging her robe to reveal cleavage (ya right) and then when they showed the pile of clothes on the beach…there lay the most padded bra I’ve ever seen! Hope Courtney is embarrassed about the whole thing but I doubt it. I agree that Ben should get a hair cut, he could clean up nicely. Coming from a mom of four adult kids, I doubt Ben chooses the skank!

  99. Janet Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 9:36 am

    Had thought Ben was a great guy in last season’s show. But, I think he was putting on a front for Ashley. Glad she did not pick him now. I expected alot more of him that we viewers got Monday night. Hope the several nice girls on the show will head home as fast as possible. Very Very disappointed in him!

  100. Connie Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 9:45 am

    Seriously, what a slut! Even before the skinny dipping, she was a conceited bitch. I’ve heard this is who Ben picks. I think they deserve each other. It’s obvious neither of them are looking for true love, just a quick roll in the hay and some free advertising. I wasn’t crazy about Ben last season, but now can’t stand him. The show needs to be more picky in choosing it’s bachelors. I feel sorry for the other girls who truly came on the show hoping to find love. He isn’t worth it!

  101. Irene Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 9:55 am

    Courtney is showing everyone just what a slut she really is and Ben should have gotten the message of that when she purposed to take her cloths off. That should have been a red flag for Ben! Looke out Ben, she really is no good!!

  102. SANDI Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 9:58 am

    Come on you guys Ben is first and Foremost a MAN!!
    Courtney threw it in his lap and face!! No MAN is going to ignore that..it’s his nature!! Not gona happen!! All these comments are from a female’s point of view. We don’t really know how Ben feels and still may feel if and when he hears what other FEMALES say. EMILY continues to make a fool of herself trying to out Courtney to Ben. The more they protest the more he’s going to continue to be attracted to her. He’s said it in several of the episodes. Let’s just wait and see what happens.

    CHILL OUT!!

  103. Andrea Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 10:17 am

    I watch this every season. I have to say this was very disappointing.I lost all respect for Ben! If Courtney isn’t the one he picked at the end of this,the one he did pick has to see this and I wonder if they are still engaged?

  104. Lisa Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 10:24 am

    I don’t think Ben has much experience with women. He is being played by Cortney and her coniving ways. She just wants to win. He is going to get hurt again. Cortney is a slut. I have not liked her from day one on the show. I can see right through her. A lot of guys think with the wrong head.

  105. Phil Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 10:24 am

    My thought about this is how disrespectful Ben was towards the other girls even though they didn’t find out, or at least up until now.
    If the others do find out I could see some of them wishing him good luck, that they hope he finds what he’s looking for, and just leave the show. Why would they want to be with that guy.

    Not to worry – even if Ben picks Courtney, it won’t last past the 15 minutes of fame. As for Ben, shame on him for not remembering the other girls he is having feelings for and keeping in mind that, if it ISN’T Courtney he chooses, his future wife will watch this on TV later on. The biggest “shame on you” belongs to ABC – they manipulate this show so much to try to trip up the girls and make them look stupid (and the guys, too, to a lesser degree) and this behavior should have been stopped and NOT filmed. There are younger people watching this show because they still believe in fairy tales and it is tacky of ABC to share this, even/especially with the little black bars that only fuel the imagination.

  109. Lisa Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 10:29 am

    Trashy is as trashy does. I already didn’t have any respect for Courtney, but now think she and Ben deserve each other. I hope the rumors that he picks her are true. A true match made in hell.

  110. jae Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 10:34 am

    At first, I thought Ben had a deep character, but now I don’t. Let’s just give him a moment to think through is peepee and give him a mistake for the skinny dipping. After that, if he is stupid enough to pick Courtney, as reported, he is the dumbest of all the bachelors ever. Come on, even not being able to see her nasty personality behind the scenes, the obviious skank was apparent in his interactions with her. He deserves to have his heart broken and the drama and trauma that comes with this low life trashy woman. By being okay with her tactics, he shows he never had any real substance to his character.

  111. Paula Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 10:35 am

    I don’t know why more girls don’t come out and tell Ben about Courtney…She is a slut! I’ve heard ABC has already announced that Courtney is the Winner, so why should we continue to watch. The girl from Texas or Tennessee deserve Ben more! But he’s not thinking with his heart or the head on his shoulders! Courtney should have been kicked off the show by Chris Harrison/ABC for what she did! No excuses. This is a prime-time show!!!

  112. Linda Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 10:50 am

    I, too, was very disappointed in Ben last night. Why is it that men are so easily swayed? I also heard that he chose Courtney, I hope that’s not true. However, in reality, the show is over. I guess we’ll find out in a few weeks. I personally like Kacie B.

  117. Lee Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 11:22 am

    If Ben chooses Courtney, he will live to regret it. He’ll realize being left with a no after a proposal is of no consequences compared to entangling himself with a person like Courtney. She’s probably attractive enough to be a model but her actions make her very ugly to me!

  118. Rita Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 11:25 am

    He can’t drop her now, she knows too much and can tell all. I feel sorry for him. In that situation, if he says no, he would be cast as chicken. If he says yes, he is cast as not thinking of the other girls and having no morals. I like Kacie B to be the winner.

  119. Justme Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 11:32 am

    Ben has a pattern of choosing women who break his heart. He said that. He needs so much therapy to break this pattern. Courtney is used to getting what she wants by using sex she has no self-esteem. I feel sorry for both of them. This relationship will not go anywhere for the long run. They have nothing in common. I think Ben is not the most conciderate guy. He is all into sports and the dates have been pretty boring. Sports, Sports and more sports. I would not want to date him or her.

  120. KDall Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 11:34 am

    What is wrong with her lips and always touching her hair and not being able to stop talking nonsense? Enough with her uneducated, “you know, like, you know, like”. It makes my ears bleed listening to her.

    Ben needs a haircut and a daily shave. He needs to not dress like a slob. He reminds me of a 13 year old boy. I believe he and Courtney are both doing this show to become “reality tv stars”.

    The whole thing is fake.

    I don’t even find her pretty. Evil looking she is. Time to go girl. Trash. I do think he knows about her, but ya know the ratings says it all. Keep the audience wondering. I’m surprised the girls haven’t gone to him; well Emily has – they all need to support Emily – she’s the only brave girl in the group. Since he gave Emily a rose, he might know more than we think.

  123. Georgie Says:

    I thought from the beginning that courtney was a slut. The skinny dipping just proved it. Ben isn’t any better because went however far with someone he doesn’t even know. I think that the show has gotten too sexy. How can you say you truly love someone after a couple of weeks and even fewer dates.

  133. Kim Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    Didn’t they both know this was being filmed? And because it was being filmed, it wasn’t a secret. So if this is against the rules, why wasn’t it addressed? This show was filmed months ago & the network could have edited it off & not shown it. Ben never seemed comfortable with doing it & just let her take the lead. It almost seems contrived for ratings. It’s not logical. I wonder if she was hired to act that way to add ratings. Also, they would have to know that it would be seen later. Everyone on past shows claims it’s all real, but I wonder. I’m all for a little drama, but this crossed the line & now it’s just making people mad. I guess mad is better than bored, right network? Just on the assumption that this is all genuine & they did not know they were being filmed & thought it would be a secret, then that was really, really poor judgement on his part. It makes him look terrible & weak. Why would this show want to showcase that? I lost a lot of respect. As for Courtney, I’ve never had any respect for her. She’s mean & conceited & immoral & is stupid enough to put that out there with every little short segment speech. I wish she’d go away & hang out with Charlie Sheen so they could be “winning” together. I hope Ben sends her home & comes to his senses & maybe he’ll get some respect back. And maybe I’ll still watch the show. Again, on the assumption that this is all genuine.

    BEN WAKE UP!!!!! This is suppose to be an adventure, “to find your wife”. It’s about real feelings, and finding someone who is committed to you and the life you want to find. So many great girls there that really care and are there for the real deal. I hope you find true love, and not just LUST. Courtney is winning right now, but are you winning her heart? Think about it!

  135. Deb Says:
    February 1st, 2012 at 2:10 pm

    It pains me to see how easily a man is tricked by a woman who wields her sexually like a weapon. Poor Ben! Like a lamb to slaughter. :(

    To the girls remaining: If I were you, I’d saddle up and ride out of there as fast as I could. Courtney can have him!!! I mean really! Would you really want to be with someone like Ben who totally disrespected you. He says “Why the heck not” when Courtney approached him about skinny dipping. BECAUSE YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE A GENTLEMAN, BEN!!!!! Oh, and yea, you do need a haircut.

    Courtney is a very average looking girl and needs a more updated look. That long hair parted in the middle is so 70′s. If she was as attractive as she THINKS she is – she wouldn’t be on the bachelor. If Ben falls for her he has no one but himself to blame. She has NO class whatsoever and it’s amazing to me how any “tall” girl who doesn’t have a real job can say she is a “model” and people believe it. She comes off as a blue-collar slut!

    i wish ben could see what we all see. i’m sure he would not like the way she treats others. he will be treated the same if he has chosen her. too bad, he seems like a nice guy to me. it will never last.

    I like Ben and think he is really cute, but is it that easy to sway him into making a whore monger of himself. Will it be that easy for him to cheat on his wife…probably. Looks like he can’t control his sexual urges. Shame on you Ben. Courtney is such a slut!! I hope he comes to his sense

    Courtney is all about winning. Hopefully Ben will see this before he messes it up with someone that should really count. But men will be men.

    Ben, When will you wake up. Last season a girl was sent home for a tryst with a guy behind the scenes. I think Courtney should be sent home ASAP for what she did last night. She has vindictive bitch wrote all over her. One of her ex-boyfriends has already released what a cheater she is. I hope you wake up and when you are watching this after the show, aren’t you afraid of the same thing Emily went through last saeaon? She didn’t last with the guy that picked her when she saw how he treated the other women. Straighten up and act like someone with morals and values. Are you a serial cheater too????

  146. Debbie Says:

    First, I think that Courtney has not respect for herself or for the show. I mean really. When she didn’t get the rose, she says that she’s a winner. Ok, check yourself, the winner is the person that Ben proposes to. I think that if any of those girls knew, guess what buddy, you blew it. And for what, to go skinny dipping with a model(hahahahaha). You both are idiots, just don’t which is the bigger one.

    I totally think he needs to get rid of Courtney; she “talks funny”; twists her mouth when she talks and is nothing but a spoiled brat! I really can’t stand the way she thinks that Ben is attracted to her and that she needs to be there for him! PLEASE he really needs to get rid of her!

    What a contrived joke! Does ABC actually assume that viewers are so naive as to believe that this show is not scripted? The little dramas in this show are so artificial in fact, that it can be nothing but fiction.

    Our cast of superficial characters are as follows:

    Ben is a 30 year-old hormonal adolescent with delusions of grandeur. Courtney is a narcissist with the ego and sexual tendencies to match. The other women for the most part, are playing by the rules, but can’t quite get the hang of competing with John and his Trick.

    Where does that leave the audience? Changing the channel and watching Downtown Abbey.

    Sorry, but Courney is NOT that great. She obviously has a high opinion of herself that gives her the confidence to win. As for Ben, he is thinking with his small peeeenis brain.

    Courtney is a Producer’s dream; the manipulative evil vixen, who’s shown that she’ll do anything to win. She’s a slut, and nowhere near as attractive as many of the other girls. As for Ben, we lost a pile of respect for him after that episode. We like Casey B, and thought she’d be great for him, but now, she’s way too good for him. He deserves whatever he gets or whoever he doesn’t now.

  151. Beth Says:

    I have lost all respect for Ben – getting to feel he is a very empty person. Luckiest women there are the ones he dumped. He deserves the slut he skinny dipped with. Maybe her can have sex with her on the next episode.

    If this was my son or brother, i sure as hell would be embarassed. Imagine him bringing this girl courtney home to meet his mother. I would never except this girl into my family after this on national tv, no way!!! He is a fool, thinking with the little head…he is not looking for a wife doing this sort of thing. Just stay single buddy!!! Those girls should also be told this occured!!

    First of all ,I just don’t see what the big deal is about Ben! It not all that and the girls must be desperate. Courtney is not nice. I would not want that guy who shed his clothes for the likes of Courtney. she is playing him…

    This was a ploy to get people to watch the show.
    Most of that stuff is setup. It is a joke and a total waste of time. Overall, the record is bad for successul marriages. Most of the couples have broken up.
    This soft porn should be removed from the airways and placed in the garbage where it belongs.
    What happened to good television?
    What sort of example does this show display to our youngsters? What happened to morales? How can
    children learn respect when this type of programming is displayed as favorable fantasy?
    It is junk.
    Get it off the air!!!!!!!

    Courtney has to use sexually to lure him..she has nothing else going for her! I hope he picks her. The other girls are to good for him!

    Ben, I am really disappointed in you. You were very disrespectful to the other girls on the show. I, also, feel badly for the other girls. They didn’t deserve that! ABC, shame on you. Ben made a BIG mistake. You should have chosen not to air that but, of course, it’s all about the ratings. I got my 91 year old mother watching the Bachelor and now I’m ashamed that I did!

    This girl likes playing games. She is very immature,and she will spills the beans to the other girls.Congratulations Ben,you have sunk to a new low.Start thinking with you brain instead of whats in your pants. Count youself lucky if when the other girls find out(and they will) that some of them may decide to leave the show. Shame on you both!

    amazing…so many want love but go out looking for it in all the wrong places. Also sinking to an immoral way of acting and dressing asking to be treated like trash…read what true love is… 1st corinthians 13.Yes for better or worse….BEN you will continue banging your head against the wall in relationships like COURTNEY and wonder why you have headaches.I think this show should never have shon this scene…Chris should had it cut,,used to respect the show but…forget it too much trash.

    What is the confusion, folks? Ben is a horny, goofy kid who got a chance to skinny-dip with an boring model. If he ends up picking Courtney then they deserve each other. For a show like the Bachelor its par for the course.

    I live near Ben. Only watched the show because of that — wanting to see our local scenery and supporting a local guy.

    He’s acting like a pubescent 16-year old, as opposed to a real man. Can’t say NO. Obviously will not make a very good parent (since parents need to say NO to their kids) and if I was his mom, I’d be shamed. Did he not think of his sister and mother (and his father’s memory) when he shamed himself?

    He is dirt. Worse than any of the other people on the series, ever. Who care about his stupid hair — how about his abysmal character?

    I watched it, for Ben and the scenery (even though I’d skipped many of the Bachelor/Bachelorette series because I didn’t care at all about the people in it. Now — I cared about Ben (my neighbor) and he trashed it. Thanks Ben — you are a loser and I will never watch this series again. I don’t care who you end up with.

    You may as well end the show!Once the two of them went skinny-dipping, it was over!I lost all respect for Ben!He was selfish,uncaring,and showed poor judgement!Why have rules if u don’t enforce them!i hear that next week someone else goes home for breaking the rules!Double standards if u ask me!But if he did the nasty with Courtney,he made his choice in that instant!Because, i don’t believe any of the other women would stay with him after knowing that!the producers have gone too far!i won’t watch it anymore,it is bad enough you people abuse these women emotionally enough!whether they signed up for the show or not, they deserve full disclosure on all the facts!I wish Ben was more sincere about finding love, because all he found now is lust!Courtney wins, apparently,that is sad!i feel for those women who went with genuine feelings for him, however,they are better off without him!he is a dog who laid down with flees!i am so tired of just hearing lips smacking and tongues going from mouth to mouth to mouth!i hope these women are screened medically before and after the show!direct the show back to finding love for the RIGHT reasons!!it’s going downhill for the show!i have no desire to watch anymore!none of them last anyway so what’s the point!!Chris needs to enforce the rules!He says he didn’t protect Ashley enough last season and wouldn’t let the same thing happen to Ben.What about all those women who will be heart broken when they find out that Ben made his choice when there were still, i believe,9 of them left!again, double standards Chris!!!!
