Bachelor Finale Highlights

Last night, Bachelor Ben Flajnik proved he does, indeed think with his pee-pee more than his brain after proposing to smack-talking, skinny-dipping, hair-flipping model Courtney Robertson. Here were some of the moments that had columnist Ashley Spivey cursing at the screen.

Omg y’all I’m so pumped that this season of The Bachelor is finally over! We all knew it was going to be Courtney after the skinny dipping episode, but now we know that he did, indeed, “put a ring on it.”  I was mostly bored for the entire episode but here were 10 moments that either left me laughing, scratching my head, rewinding or screaming “WTF” at my TV.

1. Courtney patting the random cat in the opening sequence.

Are we supposed to believe that she’s nice now because she shows some love to a random street cat?

2. Ben’s love for vests during the finale.

Dude definitely has a penchant for quirky clothing (i.e. his mancapri tuxedo and bowties) but these vests were really cracking me up.

3. Ben’s sister’s hair.

Don’t get me wrong. I think she has great hair, unlike her brother. I just can’t figure out what type of hairstyle she was going for in this episode. The top had too much volume and she started the curl way too low on her strands.

4. The tandem skiing that Ben and Lindzi did on their date.

Reverse doggystyle skiing just looks awkward. I covered my eyes during this part I was so embarrassed for them.

5. Lindzi’s emerald green cape.

I get it – it was cold at the Matterhorn. Could ABC not get some cute fur (fake of course) coats for the girls to wear? Were there only two capes available and Courtney got to pick first? Did she not even think that her dress and the cape would clash? She looked like a combination of a wizard and Glinda the Good Witch from The Wizard of Oz.

6. The part of the rejection where Ben said he was in love with someone else.

Did Ben really have to say this? I get it, he is in love with someone else but isn’t this kind of twisting the knife in harder? Build the girl up before you let her down, dude!

7. The part where Lindzi blamed herself.

Seriously LIndzi? I hope you watched this entire season and this entire episode and then you said to yourself, “Why the hell did I say that?”  You did nothing wrong, girl, and you did put yourself out there. You just didn’t put out in Puerto Rico like Courtney did.

8. Ben not giving any reaction at all when Lindzi said, “Call me if it doesn’t work out.”

Ben didn’t even crack a little smile at this! He didn’t even respond! Give the girl a little courtesy laugh – you just broke her heart, @$$hole!

9. Ben’s rogue strand of hair during his proposal to Courtney.

I couldn’t even pay attention to what he was saying the first time around because I couldn’t stop staring at a clump of hair that was doing whatever it wanted while he proposed to Courtney. Why won’t Ben’s hair just let him be great? Anyone else feel like Ben’s hair was the true villain of the show?

10. The ring.

Is it just me or does that thing look exactly like the ring J.P. used to propose to Ashley? I swear Ben picked the same exact ring. Maybe the ring will bring Courtney and Ben the same type of happiness that JP and Ashley have?

Regardless, it’s once again been a fun season of drama, love, tears, and roses. I can’t wait for Emily Maynard’s season of The Bachelorette and I hope y’all are excited too!

Sad day. Seriously. What really threw me off was Courtney's black gloves. She kind of reminds me of someone in the mafia who's fixing to beat the crap out of someone. Also, when Courtney was laughing and saying finally and all that good thing, I truly thought that they were going to have a cut of her saying, "I won!"

Ashley is just trying to make light of the supposed love hook up on the bcahelor this time, Ben was a total douche bag to all the girls except Courtney,I mean, could it have been more obvious that he was gonna pick the that screwed him after a week, rock on Ashley, you are so great and so beautiful

I don't understand what the headline means, "The Bachelor: 10 Moments where I was totes like, “WTF?” What do you mean by 'totes'? Is that a major type o? Someone please stop Bachelor castoffs from writing. Yawn.

Jonathon March 14, 2012 | 6:32 AM

What I think is the most laughable thing in Ashley S's recaps is the word "totes". Is that to sound like a 5 year old girl? While some of the things in this recap are funny...I think only Ashley notices the fashion stuff so closely. I couldn't care less. I do feel bad that Lindzi told him to call her if it doesn't work out....I hope her eyes are open now.

Why would Ben and Lindzi be joking with each other after he just dumped her for another woman? I dunno, I think maybe Lindzi said that on Live With Kelly to save face. Who knows? Maybe it was just an awkward moment and she didn't know what to say. Haven't we all been there?

If you saw Lindzi on Live with Kelly this morning you would have heard her say how the "call me if it doesn't work out with Courtney" would know that it was a joke. they both laughed about it, but ABC edits everything however they wish.

US Weekly just did a short article on past Bachelor/Bachelorettes and one thing stood out. The earlier ones have continued on with their lives outside of the media but the more recent ones can't seem to get it! Get a job or find something else to do other than trying to cling to this trainwreck of a show! Yeah your blogs might be funny but seriously who cares that you were on Season xx of the this show! Remove this from your twitter profile or is that the only thing that defines you?

Tara March 13, 2012 | 4:00 PM

Wow, Rebecca and BLS. Are your 'roids flaring up today? I thought this was really funny. I follow Ashley's blog, and she's sweet, adorable and hilarious. Go back to watching paint dry or whatever it is you do to pass the time in the life you clearly don't have. Rock on, Ashley!

Kerry March 13, 2012 | 12:04 PM

Down girl. Live a little and enjoy the blog.

Rebecca March 13, 2012 | 11:21 AM

People like you are so hypocritical. If Ben were to smile at Lindzi after she said "Call me of it doesn't work put," you'd be saying "OMGZ HE TOTES LEAD HER ON! WHAT A JERK!" So laughable that you'll find anything wrong no matter what they do.
