It's been a long journey, we've traveled (kind of) far, and we've finally reached the penultimate episode that takes place in the abandoned studio once inhabited by former late night talk show host Pat Sajack. They even kept the background cityscape in tact, and all the Christmas wreaths!
But mostly there were sparkles and weird cleavage. And totally unsubstantiated bitchy expressions.
This one thinks she's made it a lot further in the season.
You got to love the audience reactions. There were three clusters of audience members there to provide facial feedback to anything happening on stage.
The best part of the show is always the fifteen minute teaser for the next Bachelor Pad. This one got the gang of seasons past together for a wild night of Jagermeister lemon drops at a Vegas hotel. Let me just say on a serious note, the Bachelor contestants really are like a family.
A family where everyone is named Kasey. And sometimes those Kaseys get sloppy.
Oh right. Sigh. Back to business.
And we're back. Since the very beginning of the episode the promise of a public stoning of contestant Courtney has been dangled.
Let's do this.
After she's properly shamed, Courtney actually leaves the building. We know this because cameras follow her to a car, perhaps to suggest she won't see Ben who's also in the studio. Or maybe it's part of the Honda contract the series signed and will never ever be finished with.
Next up: a---hole number two.
Ben has some 'splaining to do. Mostly, about how the show works.
Emily ain't having it. Neither are the other women who were recently dumped. But that one woman from episode minus 3, she's says its so fine, go sleepy now?
Next up, it's Kacie B. cam time! You may remember how this young, sweet, naive flower had her heart ripped from her chest and then had a few ventricles still attached to her rib cage snatched out too. Well now is when we look back at the amazing romance Ben and Courtney have enjoyed while keeping a camera firmly affixed on Kacie's nausea face.
Spoiler alert. Do not look at the photo below if you do not want to know what '90s movie genre will be called upon to make next week's finale more heart-rending.
