This week on ABC‘s The Bachelor, we watched as Ben Flajnik let Emily O’Brien go, despite have a wonderful time with her in Belize. Most of us were left wondering how he could let Emily go, while Courtney Robertson got another rose. Did Ben make the wrong decision? Read on for the scoop!
After watching Ben Flajnik and Emily O’Brien have a great date this week, we can’t help but wonder why he let her go. We know that Ben has said his feelings for the other four are the strongest, but he also posted in his blog this week: “In life I’ve always wanted someone to explore the world with and Emily is that kind of woman,” adding of his date with Emily: “I was so happy that we were finally able to focus on our relationship.” Come on Ben, are you just that blind to Courtney, to keep that black widow and let a great girl go home?
Or could it be that Emily put too much focus on Courtney, and not enough on her relationship with Ben? Chris Harrison seems to think that may be the exact reason, as he recently explained in his blog: “I can’t help but think that despite her rebound in recent weeks, her skirmish with Courtney and subsequent confrontational talks with Ben just put her too far behind.” Hmm, maybe honesty is not a quality that Ben Flajnik is looking for?
We’ll have to wait and see what Emily O’Brien has to say in her post elimination interview, but we are guessing she was just as disappointed as we all were! Let’s chat – do you think Ben made a huge mistake by letting Emily go and keeping Courtney? Who would you like to see win Ben’s heart? Share your thoughts by commenting below!
