The Bachelor Ben: The Legend of Prince Pinot

The ladies all head to Sonoma so that they can see Ben's home town.

Kacie B, who is super adorable and real, gets the first date card but her date doesn't start until nightfall.  They walk around town....do some shopping, he teaches her to play the piano and she teaches him to twirl a baton.  They have dinner and talk about their lives.  I can really see these two together and having kids. Kacie gets the rose.

DING DONG!  Group date card arrives.

Ben has a surprise for Kacie. He takes her to an empty theater and home movies from their childhood are playing on the screen. Video of Ben and his Dad playing together and Ben buck ass naked as a kid. They are both in tears. What a downer!

Group Date Theatrics

In order to discover who is good with children, the ladies are forced to audition for a play that is cast and written by the children of the town. Ben is also in the production and is cast has Prince Pinot from the Land of Bachelorville. It should be noted that Blakeley is wearing a very inappropriate low cut, striped romper. Her *jugs* are all over the place. Monica is cast as the big, bad fire breathing dragon which I found ironic.

They end up performing for an audience and the play is actually very funny and one of the ladies blows Ben's clothes off (as he's dressed as a sheep).

They head over to a wrap party and Blakeley decides that she is going in for the kill and it's highly irritating to the other ladies. This makes Samantha so upset that she hides in the bathroom and fumes.

DING DONG....Date Card.

One on One date card goes to Courtney who just finished insulting Lindzi by telling her that her first impression rose actually went to the horse she rode in on.  Courtney rubs her good luck in everyone's face.

Back at the party....Jennifer gets some alone time with Ben and they make out.  With tongue.  Five minutes later he is making out with Blakeley while Jennifer and some blonde that I can't identify are watching.  Jennifer cries because he's kissing someone else.  HELLO! YOU ARE ON THE BACHELOR!  Blakeley gets the rose for making the most of her time with Ben.  Blakeley can't figure out why everyone gets up and leaves when she walks into the room.

Dog Day Date

Ben brings his dog on his date with Courtney and she describes him as HOT (drink).  Ben is hot...not the dog.  He walks her into the woods and asks if she can handle the slow pace of small town life.  She lies to his face and says she loves the woods because it's so peaceful.  They have a picnic by the river and Courtney complains that she's so pretty that no one wants to date her.  Ben describes her as the total package and too good to be true.  He thinks that she has a winning (drink) personality and their time together feels natural and easy.   Courtney gets the rose.

Cocktail Party

Ben tells everyone that he had a great time in Sonoma. 

Blakeley keeps interrupting everyone's alone time with Ben and the ladies are getting very upset.  They are talking about her and she's noticing that everyone stops talking when she walks into the room so she goes into the luggage room and sits in the corner.

Ben asks to talk to Jenna and she completely blows her time with him by babbling on and on about not being a real girl.  I'm convinced that she has no social skills and a drinking problem.   Jenna goes to bed and cries herself to sleep.

Ben goes around the house collecting up all of the unstable women that are hiding in bed and in corners so that they can have a rose ceremony.

And the roses go to:

Kacie B (from Tennessee, old fashioned, got first one on one date)
Blakeley (VIP cocktail waitress from N. Carolina, made out with Monica the first night, sucked face with Ben on group date, giant forearm tattoo.)
Courtney (Super Model from LA, mean to other girls, too good to be true, winning)
Jennifer (Redhead from OK, really likes Ben, very jealous of Blakeley)
Emily (Ph.d student from N. Carolina, performed a rap)
Elyse (personal trainer from Chicago, made Ben do push ups)
Jaclyn (?????)
Erika (law student from Chicago)
Rachel (fashion rep from NYC, quit her job)
Lindzi (from Seattle, rode a horse and got first impression rose, drives a F350 diesel)
Nicki (divorced, dental hygienist from TX, bubbly)
Casey S. (?????)
Samantha (cute blonde from CA, wore a sash the first night, hates Blakeley)
Monica (mean girl from Utah, likes girls, misses her dog, has a tramp stamp)
Jaime ( dadless nurse from NY, doesn't like Courtney)
Brittney (Sales rep from CO, brought her Grandma)

No Rose!

Jenna (blogger with a drinking problem)
Shawn (Single mom)

Next Week: Going to San Francisco!


  1. wow...what a recap! I don't find Ben as attractive as everyone does....not my cup of tea if you know what I mean? But I still watch it!

  2. Totally need to get off my ass, walk into my bedroom, where the dvr is, and watch this hot mess.

  3. So does that mean the no rose girls are out?

  4. NOOOOOO!! NOOOOO! NOOOOO!!! Your recaps are sucking me in again!! I refused to watch this show anymore and was successful the last two times. I think this one is going to break that though. BOO.

  5. Blakely. UGH. That bitch needs to go.

    I can't wait to see more drama unfold next week!

    And WTH was up with Jenna when she got cut? She acted like her life was ending. So stupid.

  6. Couldn't have been happier to see that whiny blogger get the boot.

  7. So how many times exactly did Ben say, "Kacie B" during the date segment? I mean we GET who you're with, we SEE her on the screen. You don't have to keep saying, "Kacie B is the real deal" "Kacie B and I have a real connection". Talk about terrible television writing.

    I'm so glad Jenna is gone, that bitch was a trainwreck! I just laughed hysterically at her exit interview. Was she for real?? No man is going to go near her now after seeing the way she carried on these past two episodes.

    I hope you drank each time Courtney said winning. In a span of 10 seconds she said it three times. She pisses me off.

    So many good things are happening next week, I can't wait to actually see them played out!!!

  8. what a recap! and the title made me giggle like a little girl: prince pinot. bahaha

  9. OMG, I'm cracking up laughing about Ben "going around collecting all the unstable women"!! So hilarious!

  10. You do know that The Bachelor is Mr. Art @ Home's guilty pleasure!!!

    I loved Ben's date with Kacie B. She and Lindzi are my very favorites (we horse people must stick together). I think Courtney is a plant. There is no way she is that desperate for a date...come on! I call foul! She is a red herring, I think. Seriously, google her....she is a very busy model....and she wants to live with Ben in Sonoma? Highly unlikely.

    LOVE this post!

  11. I totally could have saved myself 2 hours by reading your recap instead of watching the show, but then I would have missed watching Jenna tell Ben that she's a dude. And that was pretty stinkin' funny! :o)

    I loved your recap, especially the part at the end where you identify the girls. Do you remember which girl is the one who raised her siblings? I THINK she's a nurse. Not sure. Is she still in the running?

  12. I just watched it and I may never recover from the toddler overalls with the push up bra that Blakely wore to the group date.

  13. Thank you for stooping by my blog:) I am looking forward to following you as well:)

  14. The blogger is gone eh? Wonder how bad she is going to bash Ben on her blog now


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
