The Bachelor Season 16 Episode 8

"What the *%$@ just happened?" Kacie took the words out of everyone’s mouth last night! We were all left stunned while watching the bachelor. Ben sent home unarguably the fan favorite and crushed us by keeping the venom that is Courtney. Well, Kacie's father was a little scary, and honestly I am glad because someone needed to talk some sense into Ben.

The home town dates took us first to Ocala, Florida where Lindzi introduced Ben to her mother and father. She opened the date by riding in on her horse Devon, all too familiar to her first introduction. Her parents and Ben played an adorable horse racing game before getting to know each other a little better. They then all sat together at the most charming outside living room set up I have ever seen. Drank some wine and shared stories. Lindzi and Ben gave Lindzi's parents the break down of their relationship and how they've been getting to know each other. This is when it was discovered that Lindzi's parents got married in the San Francisco court house where Ben and Lindzi's had their first date. Ben seemed very natural with Lindzi's parents and it seemed as though it was a great meeting and everyone got along perfectly well. 

Next up was Clarksville, Tennessee to visit with Kacie and her family. Kacie opened up the date with a marching band with in the middle twirling the baton. I thought this was so adorable and well planned. A great way to welcome Ben to her hometown, and I am sure it made him feel very special. They had a short heart to heart on the football bleachers. Kacie let Ben know her grandparents are her role models in regards to love and that she can only hope but to find a love like the one they shared. Kacie did warn Ben that her dad was very strict and conservative. From the start I think this worried Ben and he went into meeting her parents very worried about what they would think about him. Well, this only proved to be true because both Kacie's parents seemed to be very disapproving of Ben. In all honestly, I commend Kacie's father for being real and honest and saying he would not give Ben his approval to marry his daughter. If you have seen past seasons of The Bachelor you must know this show never works out, and if you daughter is only 24 years old you too would want to protect her as much as possible. Especially from a guy who was just skinny dipping in the ocean with a crazy manipulator (but I won’t get into that). Probably because of Kacie's disapproving parents she was sent home last night (thankfully, for her sake). I am sure she has been watching the season of the bachelor while it has been airing and is thanking her lucky stars she was sent home before her feelings continued to grow even more for Ben. After seeing everything she’s seen I am sure there is no regret. 

Howdy there cowboy! We are off to Texas to meet the third set of parents. Nicki's hometown date seemed the most fun to me by far. Shopping for cowboy boots and going to an old school cowboy bar! I loved it! It seemed really playful and cute, and it looked like Ben loved it too. Nicki introduced Ben to her parents over a traditional Texan dinner. Ben spoke very highly of Nicki's father stating that he saw a little bit of his own dad in him. Nicki's family though protective of their daughter's heart, was very nice and gracious towards Ben. The date seemed like it went very well, and it definitely did because Nicki was given a rose at the rose ceremony.

Last, but definitely not least, we head to Scottsdale, Arizona to meet the evil one's parents. Courtney's date started with her and Ben immediately meeting her parents. Courtney's mom stated that she is skeptical of her daughter’s supposed feelings for Ben. If her own mother says it, do I even have to say anymore? After the lunch with her parents, Courtney had set up a "surprise" for Ben. First, they had a little picnic set up, and then they went for a walk to see that Courtney had set up a "mock" wedding for them to participate in. I swear this girl can only get away with doing crazy things like this because she is pretty. I guarantee you if an ugly girl had pulled a stunt like this, that guy would have ran away screaming (sorry but true). 

There was then a recap of the four hometown dates with Chris and then the rose ceremony began. Courtney first, Lindzi second, and finally Nicki. Yep, that means no rose for sweetheart Kacie. I loved Kacie and she was probably my favorite of the four that were left. It seems as though Kacie was America’s favorite and everyone really wanted Ben to pick her in the end. It is sad that it won’t be her, but only Ben knows how his heart (or another body part) really feels and he's going to end up with who he feels most strongly about. We can only wait and see if  him and his final pick are actually still together. At this point, I think everyone has a feeling about who he’s going to choose and I honestly wish we could just watch the After the Rose already to know the status of their relationship. I for one could care less to continue seeing Courtney use her “magic” and manipulate this guy like a little puppy.
