Ben Flajnik may be the titular star of the ABC reality franchise, but this season of The Bachelor has been without a doubt the season of Courtney Robertson.
Week after week, the girl continues to cement her reputation as the best Bachelor villain of all time, while redefining the standards of human terribleness.
Okay, sorry. That was a bit harsh. Well, maybe.
Skinny-dipping is a tough act to follow, but Court is a tough girl to hold back when it comes to showing off her body. She's, like, a model after all y'know.
There was also a pretty big scandal involving Samantha, as The Bachelor spoilers (and the promos, and Chris Harrison) told us. How it that play out?
Join us for THG's official +/- Bachelor recap of week six ...
Kacie B. got the first one-on-one date this season and after earning her second this week, looks more and more like a contender. She's nice. Plus 10.
Ben says this date - "surviving on a desert island" will show how they might work together in the future. Minus 60 for that recycled Bachelor platitude.
“Watching Ben cut into a coconut … it’s so hot,” Kacie says. Mmm. Plus 5.
She shares her high school history of anorexia and bulimia with Ben. Heavy topic and maybe too soon, but honest, courageous and forthright. Plus 12.
In the dreaded two-on-one date, Blakeley and Rachel go salsa dancing. Blakely pulls out all the tricks ... and we mean implied sexual favors. Plus 9.
Then she shows Ben a scrapbook of their love story, which is hilarious and kind of stalker-like as she never had real one-on-one time with Ben. Minus 11.
Rachel Trueheart (that's her name) gets the rose. Plus 8.The group date gals had to rely on Ben to navigate through the river. Being a man's man (with a whole production team), he got it done somehow. Plus 6.
Heading deep into the dense jungle, a group of young boys clad in loin cloths are playing soccer. Clearly giving Courtney too many ideas. Minus 12.
“We kind of followed in the direction they ran and stumbled upon this village.” - Nicki. It's true, Ben plans some crazy spontaneous dates. Minus 9.
Courtney, of course, decides to be one with nature. “I don’t do anything half-assed,” she says, baring her breasts, blurred out by ABC. Minus 40.
“These girls… they are all like so prude," she says of girls who elect to remain sweaty and in bikinis while competing on The Bachelor. Plus 15.
“I appreciated that in more than one way,” Ben, of Courtney letting it all hang out. We imagine almost no viewer did, but good for you. Minus 9.
Courtney, having not commanded the attention of the show for a good couple of minutes, decides to interrupt Ben's time with Jamie. Minus 14.
Stripping down to a bikini, prancing around the pool, stretching her legs, splashing around ... is she getting paid to put on this show? If so, Plus 10.
Courtney invites Ben to come to her room after the party. He does not go for it somehow, and Plus 30 for that, but it's just a matter of time.
Speaking of Jamie, she delivered probably the worst kiss in Bachelor history. Or best, from an entertainment standpoint. But for romance, pure awfulness.
“I want to turn Ben on,” she says, straddling him in a short, tight cocktail dress, giggling like a drunk teenager. This is a scene out of Superbad. Plus 20.
Jamie tells Ben the first kiss was bad because her mouth was open when his was closed. “Do you want my mouth closed or open?” he asks. Ugh. Minus 19.
After hearing her laundry list of kissing instructions, Ben can't even take it seriously anymore. “That’s normally how kissing goes,” he says. Indeed. Plus 12.
The second attempt was even worse. Jamie Otis, no rose for you. Plus 10.
Chris Harrison shows up and calls out Casey Shteamer. Dun-dun-dun! Plus 30.
Chris tells Casey he received tips from exactly three different people back in the U.S. that she was “in love with somebody else.” Then what did he do?
He says he then reached out to this mystery man, Michael, who apparently confirmed that the two were actually in a relationship. Busted! Plus 25.
Casey denies being in a relationship but admits she’s still in love with him, and after an awkward talk with Ben, Casey is sent home. Minus 35.
EPISODE TOTAL: -13! SEASON TOTAL: +26!
Eliminations: Blakeley Shea, Casey Shteamer, Jamie Otis.
