Chris Harrison on What Went Wrong With Emily O’Brien and Ben Flajnik on The Bachelor 16

Chris Harrison still seems to be on Team Emily — and reading his Entertainment Weekly blog on The Bachelor Season 16, Episode 7, you can practically see him shaking his head as he writes about Ben Flajnik keeping Courtney Robertson over Emily O'Brien this week.

The Rosemaster also said five women have now warned Ben about Courtney but hasn’t it just been Emily, Kacie Boguskie and Nicki Sterling? Did they edit out Rachel Truehart and Lindzi Cox jumping in with their own thoughts? Maybe one of the locals whispers something to him when no one was looking?

Anyway, here are some highlights from The Rosemaster’s EW blog:

New side of Courtney: “This week we got a glimpse of a completely different side of Courtney. Up to this point she’s been supremely confident and unflappable, but this week she was emotional and insecure. There is something very interesting I noticed about Courtney this week, and that is just how much she makes everything about her. Most of the girls are worried about how much they are opening up to Ben. Courtney, on the other hand, said several times that Ben needs to step up his game and open up to her.”

Warning! Courtney! Warning! “The other major happening this week was the other women warning Ben about Courtney. If you’re keeping score at home, that makes a total of five different women who have gone out of their way to warn Ben about this woman. It does have him thinking, and he had a half-hearted talk with her before the rose ceremony, but when they are alone she knows exactly what to say to settle his nerves.”

What went wrong, Emily? “This week we said goodbye to Rachel and Emily. I’m guessing most of you were stunned that Ben sent Emily home, especially after their incredible date this week. Other than that pesky blond hair, Emily was everything Ben was looking for in a woman. I can’t help but think that despite her rebound in recent weeks, her skirmish with Courtney and subsequent confrontational talks with Ben just put her too far behind. Emily is somebody I’m very much looking forward to talking with at the Women Tell All special to get her take on everything that went down and figure out what went wrong from her perspective.”

Hometowns get emotional: Next week we return to the States for the all important hometown dates. This will be a huge week, as fortunes will quickly change for some of the women. I can tell you that these are among the most emotional hometowns we’ve ever seen, and the women all take tremendous strides forward. One hometown in particular goes in a direction that you’d never expect, and you’re just going to have to see it to Belize it.”
