Do any of you feel that she is over-villainized? I dont see why all the girls focus on her so much and always want ben to see the bad side of her. I know she makes a lot of odd comments but she isnt really two faced since she tells the truth that she didnt come to make friends. I’m actually glad Emily left because she made it such a point to always bring up Courtney whenever she had a free moment with ben

I tried really hard to giver her credit and think they just edited it to make her look bad, kind of like Michelle Money last season. The first few epsiodes I thought maybe she was a little aggressive and way too sexual. But the last episode she went off about the other girls and the way she acted at the rose ceremony was really catty-waving her rose around, saying “see ya wouldn’t wanna be ya”. I read a post from on of her fellow models somewhere saying she really is awful in real life.

Its just her snarky comments that she makes in their presence that I don’t like. But I really don’t think she’s that “bad” I mean she is going for Ben’s attention and she’s getting it. But I do think she’s playing him. She’s trying to win him and so far, she’s succeeding.

I have never watched a season of “The Bachelor” until this one so I can’t compare her to women on past seasons, but I can’t stand Courtney. She is catty and rude, and I think she is playing Ben like a fiddle. Telling him that she “keeps losing sight of [their] connection” when she goes so long (two days?!) without a one-on-one date to manipulate him into giving her a one-on-one… Telling him that she doesn’t know if she wants to introduce him to her family… You could see on his face that as soon as she said that, he was hooked. He wants what he can’t have, and once Courtney made him believe that perhaps SHE will reject HIM, he thought, “Oh, I definitely want to meet her family now! No more doubts here, nope!”
I bet money that he chooses her in the end. He is deluding himself into thinking that she is really into him when I truly believe she is just trying to get publicity and is NOT attracted to him. I think he’s convinced himself that they have a future together, but I don’t see any chemistry between them. He is totally thinking with his penis and instead of paying attention to the women who he clearly has a REAL connection with and a possible future, he has his eye on the prize of sleeping with Courtney because she’s a model and leads with her sexuality. She has no substance and I can’t believe she’s still around.
Sorry for the rant! Haha, I get riled up by this show…

I think she IS two-faced because what Ben sees isn’t at all what the other girls see. Sure, she’s honest to the girls and doesn’t pretend to like them, but with Ben she goes over the top to sound sweet and like she wouldn’t hurt a fly.
I’m not entirely sure she’s even doing it on purpose, it might just be her personality. I have a feeling she has some unaddressed emotional issues (maybe bipolar?)
Also, she speaks with too many overused cheesy 90s and modern puns. Makes me like her even less. And I wish she would stop doing that weird mouth movement!

Im not a fan of Courtney’s as she just seems like a Biatch. I must prefer Kasey or Nikki as they just seem like nicer woman. However, all the tabloids are saying that Ben picks Courtney so he must like an agressive personality.

@reginaphalange: Weird mouth movement, yes!
Also, Ben should know that if a woman says she doesn’t have any female friends, RUN FOR THE HILLS. No, honey, it’s not that all women are jealous of you; it’s that you’re rude and mean! YOU are the common denominator.
Also, I can’t stand her talking in that baby voice all the time. Yuck!

@Ms Bookworm: completely agree! no female friends=red flag. Especially if they excuse is ‘they all get jealous’
Emily was awesome, she should get her own season!
They can edit, but they aren’t forcing words out of her mouth, she’s badmouthing all the other girls (even in front of Ben!) all on her own.
Someone on some spoiler thing pointed out that every girl who’s done post-interviews has had nothing good to say about her, whereas with Michelle or others, they would say ‘oh it was editing, so and so is actually really nice’.
But, Ben’s kind of ugly and boring. I hope she takes him for a ride.

I do feel bad for her! They way she acts makes me think she has had some pretty bad life experiences before this show that’s made her feel she has to be this aggressive to not get hurt.
I do think she can say some pretty mean things, but I don’t think she’s a liar, she tells the truth just in a harsh way, and she can seem pretty fun.

@hisgoosiegirl: Bahaha, I feel like Ben deserves what he gets if he chooses Courtney. There are some GREAT women who are interested in him (Kacie B!), and if he passes them up for Courtney, I will have no sympathy for him when she takes him for a ride just to stretch out her 15 minutes of fame.
I don’t think he’s ugly (he needs to cut his damn hair, though). After he had his proposal turned down on “The Bachelorette” last season, I felt terrible for him and was looking forward to him finding love when I found out he was the new bachelor. But seeing so much of his personality throughout his season of “The Bachelor” is making him really unappealing to me… He seems like a doofus.

Haha yeah she loves twisting her mouth in this odd shape.. dont know why. I know she isnt always nice but I dont hate her..
Post # 12
I don’t like her. It’s one of the many reasons I can’t stomach the show as much as I used to. She’s a biatch. And I know he chooses her so it makes me like Ben less.

@ieatunicorns: Agree completely. Since the Michelle Money thing I’ve tried to take things with a grain of salt (she was NICE on Bachelor Pad!) but I really don’t think editing is the only thing to blame in Courtney’s case.

I don’t really watch the show, just read the spoilers haha! I do find it really annoying though when girls or guys try to “warn” the Bachelor/Bachelorette…
But since we are talking Bachelor, Ben is a total goofball & I love that! Have yall heard about Ben’s video “Cream Dreams?” He is like Andy Samberg that owns a winery, win-win 🙂

Oh god Courtney irritates me. I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt, but after the “I have good GUY friends” speech, I couldn’t do it any more.
If you guys haven’t seen it already, Ashley Spivey from Brad’s second season has the funniest blog ever where she recaps with pictures – http://saynotocosmo.com/ – she’s been having a ball with Courtney’s facial expressions this season.
