I know that what I will say will NOT be the popular opinion,but I will only WRITE the truth. This episode of THE BACHELOR should have ended weeks ago. Ben loved Courtney from the beginning. If all will watch closely their interaction, you can see that they FIT like gloves-they had a "connection". What I really think happened here? ALL of the girls KNEW IT and went on a witch hunt to discredit Courtney. It was like a cancer and began eating up and the whole atmosphere in the house. Each girl did this for self-preservation, thinking that if they got rid of Courtney,they would have a chance.They were being manipulative. Then, the media jumped on it. It is shameful that the Media has taken such strong statements.Some of the things they are writing is appalling. Each and EVERY girl knows in their hearts what they did. SOMEONE amongst the girls needs to sit back and SAY it and be honest. The hate that most of you spewed will come back to you. As for Courtney, I understood why she reponded that way. She was hurt and NO ONE should have to endure that kind of treatment that MOST of the girls gave. IF all of you went on Dr. Phil, maybe he can help you to understand your intentions. Courtney and Ben, hang in there, it will be rough, but I'm hoping and trusting that you will make it through this difficult time. Don't let the media nor people break up your relationship. To the girls, all of you need to make this right, so that you can have a happy relationship with someone ONE DAY.If KARMA steps in, sorry, you will pay for your deeds. Also the girls who did NOT jump on the bandwagon, good for you, for having a MIND OF YOUR OWN!!
