It’s been a while since I did one of these, but what better time to resurrect an old feature than “The Bachelor” finale, amiright? On last night’s final episode of this season’s “Bachelor,” Ben Flajnik, wine maker and all around dork, chose divisive model, Courtney Robertson, as his fiancée (over runner-up and “luckiest woman alive,” according to Kelly Ripa, Lindzi — yes, she really spells her name that way — Cox). But despite a “fairytale” proposal on the mountains of Switzerland, all is not rosy in Ben and Courtney’s world. After watching his fiancée make an ass of herself all season long, saying nasty things to the other contestants and in general acting every bit like the delicious villain this show has needed for a while, Ben dumped Courtney days before Valentine’s Day. And didn’t even send carnations! Oh, snap.
Still, on last night’s “After the Final Rose” show, Ben said he still wanted to marry the evil temptress and slipped the Neil Lane engagement ring back on her finger (by the way, is there anything more awkward than getting an engagement ring from the same jeweler twice in one year for two different women?). Which leads us to the very important question on everyone’s mind today: should Ben and Courtney actually get married? And the answer is: YES, yes, they should! These two dimwits deserve each other! (Actually, Courtney, to her credit, is not a dimwit. She is a cunning, cunning, woman; Ben, though, he’s a dumb-dumb.).
Also, if he asked, I’d say, “Yes, Ben, it IS time for a new hairdo.”
