The Bachelor and Bachelorette star Ben Flajnik is reportedly gearing up to run it back on reality TV next year. What's his new program gonna be about?

His attempts to reconcile with Courtney Robertson! Just kidding.

Handsome Ben Flajnik

The Sonoma wine maker might soon have his own reality TV series; He is in talks with E! to create a series that will follow his life and business. Really.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. is also in talks with E! with a series as well.

After the return and exit of Shawntel Newton last week, The Bachelor settled back into its normal routine of ridiculous dates, cat-fighting and emotional turmoil Monday.

The Bachelor spoilers we've read actually didn't include much on this episode, including who would get the boot. So it was interesting to watch unfold in that sense.

Ben Flajnik took the ladies on a BREATHTAKING horseback riding date, and later fly fishing, getting the women wet in a way they never imagined. Most likely.

One lucky bachelorette also won a private show from country singer Clay Walker ... but was there a rose in tow? And Courtney Robertson, as always, was insane.

Please, join us for THG's +/- Bachelor recap of week four ...

Horsin' Around

HE'S ON A HORSE: And Lindzi Cox has never been more jealous/turned on.

Regardless of any rose outcome, seeing these prissy, uptight women put up their hair and step into baggy fishing suits was satisfying in its own right. Plus 9.

This fly fishing endeavor features some of the most fake casting we've seen on this show since ... any girl in Bachelor history was cast on the show. Plus 18.

“Let’s be honest. It’s not really about catching the trout. It’s more about catching Ben.” - Courtney Robertson, using every one of her 75 I.Q. points. Minus 10.

Think the producers rigged it and threw a gimpy trout in there just for the scene of her smugly emerging from the stream hoisting her catch? Probably. Plus 2.

"Courtney caught a fish. [pause] What the f--k." - Lindzi. Plus 20.

Ben tossed a "catch" (named Samantha Levey) back into the sea (of dating!) after she whined about going on group dates. Dude, tell it to Mike Fleiss. Minus 21.

Who knows why she was even there in the first place, after Ben told her it was time to pack it in right there. Somewhat dick-ish, but honest, so Plus 17.

The Bachelor really cranked up the absurdity this week, with girls skiing in San Francisco in bikinis, a contestant leaving voluntarily, one from last season inexplicably returning only to be rejected the same night, one fainting during the rose ceremony (!) and more.

In the end, Ben Flajnik narrowed the field to 15 women, with the rest of us wondering what lengths this awesomely terrible "reality" show will go to next.

Follow this link for The Bachelor spoilers we know so far to see what we think comes next, then join us for THG's +/- Bachelor recap of week three ...

Bikini Ski Trip

BEST SKI TRIP EVER: Kudos to the story editors for conceptualizing this one.

Lindzi, Kacie, Courtney, Emily and Jennifer get mentions when Ben talks to his nice sister Julia about the journey so far. Sorry, other dozen girls! Plus 12.

For reasons unbeknownst to human kind, Ben thinks his sis would hit it off with Courtney. Doesn't he know his own sister? Isn't Julia normal? Minus 15.

Emily gets the first date card which says that "love lifts us up." Cue obligatory climbing / skydiving / bungee jumping date and associated metaphors! Plus 5.

It actually is! They are climbing the Bay Bridge! Plus 8.

We realize sharing an intense experience is a great way to get to know someone, but they seriously recycle the same cliches every single season. Minus 4.

The girls spy on them via telescope. That's classic. Plus 7.

Ben stops to give a petrified Emily a kiss and the courage to go on. Plus 6 for the Top Gun reference ("Talk to me, Goose!") and for being a good guy.
