'The Bachelor' Week 6 Recap: The Top Five Highlights
The Bachelor,” Ben took his bevy of beauties, now down to nine women, to exotic Panama City. So far, the season has been colored by slews of claws-out catfights, mostly involving manipulative Courtney, who continued her streak as one of the best villains in "Bachelor" history. Her belligerently seductive tactics, combined with a few mascara-smeared revelations from the other ladies, made for a seriously squirm-worthy episode. Here are the week’s top five highlights:This week on “
5. Kacie B. Gets Ahead
Baton-twirling sweetheart Kacie B., who became smitten with Ben after a sentimental one-on-one in his hometown of Sonoma, proved that she still had a hold over his heart by winning the rose on the post-baseball game group date last week. She won a second one-on-one right away last night, which caused a ripple of contention among the other girls. Their date started with the standard helicopter ride, and saw them eking out an adventure on a deserted island, chopping coconuts and catching fish "Survivor"-style. Ben seemed besotted with the southern belle, remarking, “Kacie B. and I are a good little team.”
Kacie B. raised the stakes on the dinner portion of the date by uncovering a dark past plagued with eating disorders. Serious fare for a third date, but it worked -- Ben took it in stride and admired her bravery. She was awarded the rose and both of them walked away happy. “On a scale of one to wonderful, today was fantastic,” she giggled.
4. Courtney Gets Frisky (Again)
The group date found our girls stumbling upon a picturesque Panamanian village, where all the locals had clearly dressed for the occasion. They were hustled into switching their outfits to cloth wraps and beaded bibs (still ending up better off than Ben, who showed up in a loincloth.) Courtney, who stole the show last week by plying Ben with wine and strong-arming him into going skinny-dipping with her, once again let it all hang out by foregoing her bikini top and bottom. “I don’t do anything half-assed,” she smirked, as a black censor bar danced over her lady parts.
Courtney continued to dominate the rest of the date, shimmying with Ben, body-painting on him possessively, and scoffing at the other girls for their prudishness. Later in the night, she ruined Jamie’s one-on-one time by frolicking shamelessly in the background, distracting Ben in a white string bikini.
