Don't Forget "Honest!"

Did you believe Courtney's crocodile tears on The Bachelor this week? Yeah, don't be fooled. Read on to see why.

This week's episode of The Bachelor was one of the most important of the season -- it helped Ben Flajnik decide who would get a hometown date.

We prayed to The Bachelor gods that Courtney wouldn't get a chance to bring Ben home to meet her family next week, but we must have not been heard! Why, oh, why do they keep doing this to us?

After blubbering over Lindzi and Emily getting individual dates, Courtney just lost it.

She spent the first half of the episode crying that she felt she was losing her '"connection" to Ben and how ridiculous it was that Emily even got a date, but it was all very crocodile if you ask us.

What struck us as funny was that right before she got her individual date card, she mentioned she might not be ready to bring him home -- wait, what!?

Oh, heck no!

She spent her date with him whining about Emily and telling him she "lost" the spark because it took so long to get another individual date. Seriously, this trick again? As soon as he showed her affection after making him feel bad, she "found" the spark again. Really, that fast? It's all of a sudden back?

Well, Ben got an earful during the group date with Nicki, Kacie and Rachel. After giving Kacie a rose and guaranteeing her a hometown date, they all warned him about Courtney -- again!

He couldn't ignore the warnings any longer. Ben canceled the cocktail hour and went right to the rose ceremony, where he gave Courtney a talking to -- but not the stern one we wanted.

He was still very weak when he confronted her about being two-faced. Ugh, he needs a spine. He totally kept her, along with Kacie, Lindzi and Nicki

That means Emily and Rachel were sent home. Is your favorite still in the game?

Head over to our comments section and sound off...

Who is your pick for Ben?

If (and I hope it is not true)Ben picks Courtney, he is a slime just like her. Being a senior citizen, I got her number right from the start. She may want to get Ben but it is just to be the winner and beat all the other girls. I was shocked he sent Emily home and gave Courtney a rose. Just can't understand some men. If this is what happens, then this is the last Bachelor that I will watch. Too many making fools of themselves for me.

I cannot believe Ben can be so blind that he doesn't see through Courtney's behavior. Why isn't he paying attention to what the girls are saying? Courtney is the only one ' throwing ' herself at him, but according to the latest US magazine this has happened before with two other guys. I hope he realizes what she is made of before it's too late.

If it is true that Ben has chosen Courtney, I don't think I'll ever watch this show again! Watching the first episode in which Kacie B. and Ben walked hand in hand down the darkened Sonoma streets - that was magical; Kacie is so sincere, and so poised, and she and Ben seemed made for each other. Courtney will never be a good mom - sorry, she's too conceited, and too upset by every little thing that doesn't go her way. Who could live with someone like that? Who could even date someone like that for very long? And if she really wants to be a mom, why in the world would she be so totally stupid as to skinny dip on national TV, or to walk around with only beads as a top? How in the world could a nice guy like Ben choose her? Especially with Lindzi and Kacie B. standing by? How? HE'LL BE SORRY!

Seems Ben is looking for LUST more than he is love. If not, he wouldn't be loving Courtney's lewd & crude behavior at the expense of the other great ladies he has there. It's lust he's after OR he's dumb as a doorknob and all the other women left on the show now could do MUCH better than him.

Ben doesn't seem to have a connection with anyone on this season. In one scene he was gaga over Courtney, then when they were sharing a meal, he was suddenly doubtful. If the other girls knew about his distasteful skinny dipping episode, there would be only Courtney left. Bad season for the bachelor!
