I’m going to have to ask you guys to forgive me this week for a “incomplete” blog of sorts. I have been sick with a cold for the past few days and today I am just SO run down. Plus, since I’m pregnant I can’t really take any medication to help me feel better. So it’s not fun. But I’m hanging in there.
Here are some brief thoughts on last nights show.
Ben and Jojo have some intense physical chemistry! He is so into her! Right? But physical chemistry doesn’t always turn into emotional chemistry, so I’m not certain she is the girl for him. But he definitely thinks she’s hot. Ha! Who wouldn’t though? She is hot!
Something I’ve been picking up on each episode is Ben wanted to make Lauren B feel special. A couple episodes ago he gave her a photo of them to show that he cares, and last night on the group date he pulled her aside and said something like “what can I do to reassure you on where I stand?” I used to ALWAYS say this to the top 2 guys on my season. I couldn’t flat out say, “I like you the most” so instead I would say, “what can I do so you realize how special you are to me?” or “what can I do to make you feel better about this crazy weird situation we are in?” In short, Ben’s feelings for Lauren B are SUPER strong. Maybe even stronger than any of his other relationships. I’m sure of it at this point.
I honestly felt bad for Olivia after the group date. Yes, she tried to use her sexuality (once again) to win him over, and it back fired terribly. But even though she did that, I still felt sorry for her. She was obviously really embarrassed and I hate seeing anyone cry. Something about her tears felt so sad to me. I also don’t think she is a mean or evil person. I just think she is immature and insecure – but aren’t we all in our early twenties? She’s only 23. I think she is a good person underneath all her silly faces, questionable actions, and “teen mom” comments.
My last thought to share with you all today is that I’m certain that Emily, Leah, Jennifer, Lauren H, and Ovlia will be the next 5 girls to go home (in no particular order). Why? Because none of them have gotten a 1-on-1 date yet. If you haven’t gotten a 1-no-1 date at this point in the season, then there is no way Ben is interested. If he isn’t interested now, it’s very unlikely that he will suddenly fall for one of these girls.
Well that’s all I’ve got today. What do you guys think? Sound off in the comment section below.
Oh and I finally got the chance to meet Ben recently and he is such a sweetheart! I was a fan before, but now I’m a bigger fan than ever! I’ll write more about meeting him later this week 🙂
