Bachelor's Chris Harrison on Ben and Courtney: "They Might Just Be Weird Enough to Work"

The Bachelor

"Controversial" may be an overused word to describe The Bachelor, but with the heat Ben received for the women he cut (ahem, Emily), the one he kept around (eventual winner Courtney) and the decisions he made (skinny-dipping!), there is no better way to sum up this season. We checked in with Chris Harrison, who shares why he feels the hate went too far, if he thinks the engaged couple will last, and why Lindzi didn't seem too upset about her rejection. Plus: Harrison explains the new twist on Bachelor Pad and shares his cast wishlist.

The Bachelor's Emily on Her Surprising Exit: People Say I Dodged a Bullet

Ben, Emily

Of all the poor judgment that The Bachelor's Ben Flajnik has demonstrated this season, cutting Emily may have been the worst. But don't weep for Emily: She now says she thinks she dodged a bullet. We checked in with the bright, goofy epidemiologist from North Carolina to ask her how she really feels about Courtney and who she thinks Ben should end up with.

The Bachelor's Chris Harrison: I Never Would've Predicted This Negative Reaction to Ben

The Bachelor, Ben and Courtney

Chris Harrison is well aware that the majority of Bachelor viewers are outraged at both Ben Flajnik and front-runner Courtney.

"You never know how America is going to react, and even during filming, I wouldn't have predicted they'd feel this way," Harrison tells TVGuide.com. "People say, 'Why haven't you warned him about her?' But he hears what she's saying and plenty of the women tried to caution him."

The Bachelor Episode Recap: Week 7

The ladies arrive in Belize, where Chris Harrison meets them to say how important the week is and that it will lead to hometown dates. (No pressure!) Lindzi receives the first one-on-one date so Ben, sporting a nice muscle tank, picks her up. They helicopter over the gorgeous ocean and Ben tells her they'll be jumping out of it into what's called The Blue Hole. They gain the courage to do so and share a kiss before they jump and many kisses as soon as they land.

The Bachelor Episode Recap: Week 6

Ben and the ladies are in Panama City, where hopefully Ben's hair won't succumb to the hot and humid weather. He leaves the date card and it goes to Kacie B. The two take a helicopter ride to a deserted island, where they check out the three things Kacie chose to pack: A monkey man, a cork screw/knife and a bag of candy. Ben brought a machete, fishing net and matches. Both worry that with not much to do, they'll run out of things to talk about. But with lots of laughs, it seems like they'll be just fine, not to mention Kacie finds Ben's coconut-cracking skills extremely hot.

The Bachelor Episode Recap: Week 4

The women head to Park City, Utah, on this week's episode of The Bachelor,  and it's not just the weather that's icy.

Rachel gets the first one-on-one and it's also the season's first helicopter date. She and Ben take off and when they land they set off in a canoe situated on a gorgeous secluded lake. It's not before long that the two share a kiss (and make some awkward noises), but it's get even more awkward — in a bad way — when they get back to land. It becomes evident these two don't have much to talk about.

The Bachelor's Chris Harrison: Shawntel Had Every Right to Return

Shawntel Newton, The Bachelor

When Shawntel Newton asked to return to The Bachelor, no one had any idea just how upset — and brutal — the women would be. Host Chris Harrison tells us why he still backs up the funeral director's decision to come back, how he's still not sure why Brittney decided to leave and that next week's episode gets ugly for two front-runners.

The Bachelor Episode Recap: Week 2

It's Week 2 of The Bachelor and the women are off to Sonoma, Calif., to meet Ben in his hometown. While some of the women begin to form relationships with Ben, others continue their downward emotional spiral.

The first date card arrives at the house and it's for Kacie B. The others, of course, are jealous and Courtney even hopes she doesn't return. Ben arrives in his truck and takes her to explore his stomping grounds in downtown Sonoma. They head inside a café with a piano, and the two play a few chords before moving on to a candy shop. There, Kacie grabs a baton and shows off her twirling skills, which are impressive. Ben's twirling abilities? Not so much. They eventually land at dinner where Ben talks about returning to Sonoma after his father got sick. The conversation is easy. It's no surprise that Kacie gets a rose — and a kiss. And for an additional surprise Ben takes Kacie into a theater where a home video of her childhood — then his — is played.

Daytime Emmy Awards: Michael Logan's Fearless Predictions

Susan Flannery

It's time for that annual exercise in hopelessness, pointlessness and foolishness — predicting the Daytime Emmys! I mean, seriously, why do we bother? You can think you have good taste and know award-worthy talent when you see it. You can spend hours upon hours reviewing the reels that each of the nominees has submitted to the judges. And then it can all blow up in your face with three little words: Drew Tyler Bell. Yes, my little soap peeps, anyone can win at the Daytime Emmys (which air Sunday at 8/7c, on CBS). Anyone. So, with that in mind, here we go...
