Last night on The Bachelor 2012 the first group in Panama gave us more of The Courtney Robertson Show as she got practically naked for Ben. Yet again, I hope Reality Steve has got the winner wrong. (Warning: If you don’t want to know who entertainment bloggers are saying wins the whole shebang, step away from that link. Don’t click it. It’s dangerous.)
So, last night Ben Flajnik picked up the girls in a boat and gave them some facts about the rain forest they were in. Jamie noted how much she liked that he was a “man’s man” when it came to doing things like boating.
While they were in the boat, it rained. “I’m so wet,” class act Courtney groped herself.
Arriving at the Embera village, the women were swarmed by villagers and given warm welcomes. Once in the huts, the women were instructed to take off their tops to then be fitted with woven bikini tops. Cue lots of blurring out as Courtney decided she didn’t want to wear a bra under hers.
It was obviously the way to go to impress Ben Flajnik, because when he turned up in a loin cloth, he said he was upset that the ladies didn’t take off as many clothes as they could have. She was practically losing her skirt during a whole football match too, and no she wasn’t wearing anything underneath it.
The girls gave each other body paint tattoos. Courtney wrote B+C on Ben’s back. Emily thought that was very grade-school. But in his defense, it was only really Courtney paying much attention to Ben.
After getting cleaned up they had a mini cocktail party. Lindzi shared a moment with Ben. He told her that she didn’t seem dramatic.
“I don’t believe in fighting,” she said.
But she admitted that this mattered a lot to her and she admitted she had cried during the Bachelor experience as it felt like “her boyfriend” had “a couple of other girlfriends.”
Things got cozy between Ben and Courtney again as he told her he appreciates that she notices him and he likes that she is assertive and confident (is that what it’s called?)
Even when it was Jamie’s time for some one-on-one with Ben, Courtney grabbed his attention away by stripping off and diving into the pool. She also refused to accept an apology from Emily that she probably didn’t deserve. Come on: Courtney is loving the drama!
The rose went to Lindzi, which upset Courtney. She told Ben she deserved a reward and she’d love to see Ben in her hotel room later. But she lucked out there.
We also said goodbye to Blakely and Casey was last seen being driven away.
