Ben is finally starting to see Courtney’s true colors. During the rose ceremony, Ben pulls her away from the group to have a serious talk.
Has Ben Flajnik finally figured out that Courtney Robertson isn’t on The Bachelor to find love? During the Feb. 13 episode, Ben confronts Courtney about her true intentions. Will she be honest with him or will she fool him again with her lies?
Lindzi Cox gets the first one-on-one date. They jump out of a helicopter into the ocean. “I’m definitely falling in love with Ben,” Lindzi admits to the cameras. They write a message and put it in a bottle to send out to sea.
Emily O’Brien gets the second one-on-one. Ben takes her to catch lobster on a small boat. He gets lucky and hooks one. During the night portion of the date, Emily invites Ben to meet her parents.
Back at the hotel, Courtney whines to the cameras about Ben choosing to take Emily on a date instead of her. She states that she’s not sure if she wants to take him home to meet her family next week. “I really liked him,” she pretends to cry. “If I don’t get a one-on-one this week, I won’t be accepting a rose from Ben.”
Lucky for Courtney, Ben gives her the next one-on-one date. Ben and Courtney find a temple in the Belize jungle, but Courtney has something to tell Ben. “If I didn’t [get a one-on-one] I wasn’t going to accept a rose,” Courtney reveals. “I’m not going to bring someone home if I don’t know where we’re at. I haven’t felt that spark. I lost the spark babe.”
“If anything I respect those kind of things,” Ben responds. “It’s hard for me not to console you. You made yourself stand out out of anyone else that’s been here. I’m thinking I see my life with this woman. Today, I felt certain.”
“I have refound the spark,” Courtney tells him after they climb the temple steps. “We fit nicely together.” Ben is whipped.
Courtney then spews out lie after lie to Ben about the other women and complains about not liking them. Red flags start to go up for Ben. He likes Courtney but doesn’t want to be with a woman that other people don’t like.
Rachel Truehart, Nicki Sterling and Kacie Boguskie go the group date which takes them swimming with Ben and sharks. Kacie gets the rose.
Nicki and Kacie then talk to Ben about Courtney. “We want you to be cautious about Courtney,” Nicki warns. The women hint that Courtney isn’t on The Bachelor to find love.
Before Ben starts the rose ceremony, he pulls Courtney aside. “I know it’s been difficult for you, I just want to know that you are in this?” he asks her.
“The only reason I’m here is for you,” Courtney responds. “It’s been hard for me, but I think we can make each other happy. I’ve been nothing but honest and open.”
To the other girls’ disappointment, Courtney’s lies convince Ben to give her the last rose. Rachel and Emily go home.
