Bachelor Ben Flajnik Spoilers: Episode-by-Episode Breakdown, Contestant-Producer Scandal
Sonoma, California winemaker Ben Flajnik began his journey for love on the season premiere of "The Bachelor" on Monday.
The romance reality series brought intense drama, catfights and tears, as 25 women duke it out to win Bachelor Ben's heart.
The juiciest action of the night was the grand Monica-Jenna showdown. Jenna, a blogger who now resides in NYC, had a mental breakdown for no apparent reason. Jenna had a temper tantrum and ended up locking herself in the bathroom. Monica, meanwhile, started hitting on fellow female contestant Blakeley, stroking her hair and cuddling with her on the couch.
Ben finally narrows his pool of 25 women down to 18 by the end of the night - Lindzi, Jamie, Rachel, Blakely, Emily, Kacie B., Casey S., Britney, Erika, Shawn, Nicki, Jennifer, Elyse, Samantha, Courtney, Jaclyn -- and yes, both Monica and Jenna got roses.
