This week, The Bachelor and the three remaining ladies flew to Switzerland for the long-awaited “fantasy suite” dates, but little did Ben or the other ladies know, Kacie B would also be boarding a flight to Switzerland to confront Ben on their break-up and to ask for an “explanation” in one of the most cringe-worthy moments in Bachelor history.
Last week, after “Hometowns,” we witnessed Kacie B breakdown in the limo as Ben rejected her after going to her hometown in Tennessee to meet her family. Convinced that her prissy parents had blown it for her, she returns to let Ben know that she will be making her own decisions and to give him one more chance to give her a rose.
Kacie approaches Ben’s hotel room panting into her microphone before she knocks. Ben opens the door looking like he’s seen a ghost. It’s clear from his expression and his expletive that Ben thought he’d be safe in Switzerland from any typical break-up confrontations. After an expletive, Ben invites Kacie in.
Kacie is clearly hyper-ventilating and unable to form words. (Obviously she has some mind-blowing information to share that will change everything for her to endure a 16 hour plane ride half-way around the globe.) Finally, she utters the most feared words in the minds of single men everywhere: “I just wanted to see if you could tell me what happened?”
Awkward silence. Ben appears astounded that Kacie came all this way for a relationship exit interview that could have easily been handled on the phone, on the WTA episode or even better…not at all. Ben is forced to break up with Kacie B all over again, telling her he did not see her in the end and it had nothing to do with the prudish pedantic preaching of the parents. Ouch!!!!!
Still, Kacie seems to not believe Ben and thinks that he is the victim of a spell cast by evil Siren Courtney. She tries one last time to rescue him from the evil Victoria Secret model and change his mind.
She decides to throw Courtney under the bus (in case he didn’t hear her or Emily the first two times and may now want to change his mind) saying she is just here to “win”. She asks him if he needs a moment. Ben says he needs a minute sending her away…actually sending her away for good. Damn, kinda brutal. Ben is kind of a jerk in this situation. He clearly doesn’t like surprises.

Kacie then is so overcome with emotion that she falls to the ground in the hotel hallway telling the cameras she needs a moment in another Emmy-worthy uncomfortable Bachelor moment! These are the moments we live for!
And at last, we finally get a Chris Harrison cameo, where he sits in the arm chair for a one-on-one consult with Ben. The professional love adviser asks Ben if he’d like to include Kacie B in the rose ceremony to which Ben responds “no”. Ben is confident in his choices after he has had the coveted “fantasy suite” one-on-ones. No surprise, Courtney makes the cut and we are forced to wait two long weeks for more uncomfortable situations!
