Season 20, Episode 9: Points

Loved that opening shot of Ben crawling up ancient ruins in flip-flops and cargo pants. (I saw Ben Higgins hiking in cargo shorts and flip-flops so I went out and bought cargo shorts and flip-flops.)

This episode was ja-maican me crazy for many reasons, not the least being that I just moved to Higgins’ town (chill, it’s Denver—not Warsaw, Indiana), and the show comes on at 9 p.m. here. What the what! Bach fans in Mountain Time Zone, how do you do it?!

Also, I like believe in Ben and Lauren. He is such a smitten kitten with her. I’ve never seen a Bachelor more infatuated with a contestant. It’s kinda refreshing.

Okay, let’s get into points.

Caila: 200 points STAT CORRECTION

  • Kissing the Bachelor on the lips (10 points)
  • Riding on a boat (10 points)
  • Saying “I’m falling for him” or “I’m in love with him” to Ben (20 points)
  • Accepting the Fantasy Suite invitation (75 points)
  • Saying “I love you” to Ben (30 points)
  • Crying on camera (25 points)
  • Having a body part blurred out (30 points)

JoJo: 170 points

  • Kissing the Bachelor on the lips (10 points)
  • Riding in a helicopter (10 points)
  • Saying “I’m falling for him” or “I’m in love with him” to the camera (20 points)
  • Saying “I love you” to the Bachelor (30 points)
  • Accepting the Fantasy Suite invitation (75 points)
  • Getting the rose to stay another week (25 points)

Lauren B.: 180 points

  • Saying “I’m falling for him” or “I’m in love with him” to the camera (20 points)
  • Kissing the Bachelor on the lips (10 points)
  • Riding on a boat (10 points)

    Jojo cried

  2. SJB says:

    Are there points for Women Tell All?

    Also I think there should points for:
    – Ben saying I love you (what???)
    – Ben crying over a girl (i.e. last week at Lauren’s)
    – Old boyfriend tries to get the girl back (ie. Chad & Jojo)

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      There will be points for the Women Tell All! Stay tuned. And we need to update next season’s points with more phrases/actions that the Bachelor/ette do.

  3. CR says:

    I watch in Denver and it comes on at 7 pm. Is that not the same as everywhere else? I am religious about not looking online though; I’m sure East Coast people post a lot of spoilers.

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Dang, really? I wonder my ABC was playing it at 9 p.m. last night. It seemed unusually late! I know it starts at 7 in Chicago and 8 in the East Coast…and then based on last night, I figured the West Coast got it at 8 and Mountain Time Zone at 9. I need to look into this further. I hate not being able to follow along on Twitter!

    • mcdor22 says:

      We pay for timeshift television so we can watch it at 6pm MST. :)

    Shouldn’t Jojo get hot tub points?

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      She sure should. Updated now! Thanks for the catch.

      UPDATE: No hot tub points for Jojo, she was just in a pool.

      • melanie says:

        They were not in the hot tub, they were in the regular pool. You can see the hot tub in the corner of the shot. Regular pools don’t count, right?

  5. Dan says:

    Watching in mountain time means not looking at twitter until the show is over!

    Also, I think that JoJo gets in a hot tub with Ben towards the end of their date.

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Yes, the Twitter is the worst part. No more live-tweeting for me, apparently! (Don’t worry, my NYC counterpart Becca has it covered).

      UPDATE: Jojo was just in a pool, not a hot tub, so no points for that.

  6. Kylie says:

    We get points for the Tell-All episode next week, right? There is not a sheet on the excel spreadsheet though. Will they be added to episode 10’s sheet?

  7. MB says:

    Welcome to Denver! Ben has been spotted around town at events and up in the mountains. Obvi solo for now.

  8. dp says:

    We went back to check & it looked like Caila & JoJo both had body parts blurred (Caila’s in the form of a purple overlay on her swimsuit – JoJo’s in brown). Sorry I didn’t note the time. Also, maybe Denver ABC used looser censors (kidding). Thanks for everything and another great season nearly in the books.

  9. JW says:

    There is a scene with Caila and Ben getting into the ocean where her back is to camera and the used purple to fill in a fake boyshort back to her swimsuit bottoms. Should these be blurred out body part points?

  10. Kendra says:

    I read this post + comments before watching the episode on hulu, so I looked for time stamps.

    Caila does have a purple blur over her bikini bottoms around the 18 minute mark (Hulu counts backward, so it’s 1:06:20 left on the episode)

    I didn’t see any blur or tears for Jojo (Though, I really wanted them, she’s on my team ;D).

  11. mcdor22 says:

    I think for next year the girl who gets called first at the Rose Ceremony should get points! Was this the first time he didn’t call Lauren first? Maybe not overall, but at least in the last few!

  12. Megan says:

    Jojo did cry. If you count Lauren’s cry from last week you should count jojo’s this week

  13. Nicole M. says:

    I live in Denver! We are having the big Bach viewing party. Are you living close to Cherry Creek? You should join us!

  14. Erin McGee says:

    I was too excited to wait..I made my own points for The Women Tell All. If anyone wants it, I can post it!

    • amandajduke says:

      • Erin McGee says:

        Ok, keep in mind, I made this up by using BachFantasy as a guide! Have fun!
