Ben Flajnik summed it up best when he told Chris Harrison toward the end of tonight's episode of The Bachelor, "I don't really know what the hell is going on any more."
Monday featured Ben Flajnik's final dates with Nikki Sterling, Lindzi Cox and Courtney Robertson before he had to pick a final two.
Meaning, it was the night that Ben got to ask all three ladies to sleep over in the Fantasy Suite—which, be it in New Zealand, Tahiti or Switzerland, is just as cheesy as it sounds.
All three dames said yes to the proposal in hopes of getting the proposal that they actually want.
And then, Kacie B. showed up!
"My heart's racing," Ben admitted when his most recent dumpee knocked on his hotel room door in Interlaken, Switzerland.
But Kacie wasn't there to plead for another chance (though she probably secretly hoped Ben would reconsider once he saw her). No, she wanted answers because, going into her last rose ceremony, she was "so confident."
"I don't think I could have given you all of the things you needed from me, because that's not how I saw my life going," Ben said, understandably uncomfortable. "I completely understand where you're coming from, where you didn't know where things went wrong. You didn't do anything wrong...Did I see you in the end? No."
[Sniff, sniff.] And though she was devastated, and had to lie on the floor in the hallway to get her bearings after it was all over, Kacie didn't miss the opportunity to warn Ben once again about Courtney.
"Because I do love you and I do care about you, I don't want to see you get your heart broken again," she sniffled. "And I feel like...if you were to choose Courtney, you would get your heart broken."
When Ben said he'd love to hear her reasons, she replied, "I've watched her for awhile, sat back and observed. It seems like she's in this to win it. She had made comments like, ‘If it's not Ben, there are other fish in the sea.' It's just hard for me to hear things like that, knowing how I felt."
Well, Ben couldn't do much more, unfortunately, than walk her into the hall, give her a hug and close the door in her face, mumbling, "I don't even know what to say," through his clenched jaw.
Once again: Did the latest warning affect Ben's decision-making process in any way?
Maybe the talk with Kacie at least made him lose a little sleep, but otherwise...Ben's still determined to make something of his relationship with Courtney.
We will watch him propose to either Courtney or Lindzi Cox in two weeks' time. Sorry, Nikki!
"From day one I said I wanted the best for you," Nikki whispered tearfully to Ben as he walked her out. "I just hope you're making the right decision."
"I cried a little bit today, I'm not going to lie," he told her. "But I started to have doubts."
