According to recent polls, twenty-three percent of females now own a gun — up from thirteen percent in 2005. However, plenty of women are still fearful of this powerful weapon. Ann Csincsak, ‘The Bachelor’ Season 13 contestant and wife of ‘The Bachelorette’ season 4 winner Jesse Csincsak, knows this feeling all too well.

“I grew up in a ‘no gun home,’” Ann says. “We strongly believed in the right to own firearms but never did so ourselves. Until my late twenties, I had never even touched a gun.”

By Steven Zangrillo

Matterhorn Madness! It was the ending we saw coming. Courtney Robertson got her ring. America groaned. Life went on.

And so, we’ve come to the conclusion of the 16th season of The Bachelor. While it would be difficult to attach superlatives like “best” to the rhetorical descriptive of this season, “most weird” would definitely be a fine way to describe it. This season was beyond weird. Aside from the usual batch of girls who didn’t quite make the cut, we saw a strange dynamic develop between Ben Flajnik, CourtneyRobertson and Lindzi Cox. You would imagine that, at first glance, Lindzi would be the runaway favorite. A girl like Courtney, who chafes and bothers everyone she’s in the same room with, shouldn’t have made the cut. Lindzi is a self-made, sharp, talented professional who sustains and supports herself. However, Courtney is, ahem, a skinny dipping model. Unfortunately, for America that’s what Ben seemed to be looking for in a wife. Lindzi was sent packing.  Ben worried that the feelings “wouldn’t last a lifetime.” These are the ebbs and flows of The Bachelor. Below, Jesse gives his take on Ben’s big decision and whether he flubbed it, or not.

By Lori Bizzoco

On this week’s episode of The Bachelor, it was time for Ben Flajnik to narrow the girls down to two.  The scene for the infamous one-on-one fantasy suite dates was set in Switzerland where Nicki, Lindzi and Courtney had the opportunity to get some alone time with Ben.  In the middle of it all, was an unexpected twist.  Kacie B. decided to return.  She timidly knocked on Ben’s hotel room door and wanted him to give her a reason why he let her go. His reasoning being simply because they were “world’s apart.”  Personally, we didn’t think he could muster up the courage to say that her parents were too old-fashioned for his taste (e.g., they were opposed to having their daughter move in with him before she was married).  Kacie then continued the conversation by letting Ben know that Courtney was up to no good and could break his heart.  This all happened directly following Ben’s one-on-one talk with Courtney about this very issue.  Nevertheless, when it came to the final rose ceremony it wasn’t Courtney being sent home; it was Nicki.  Sometimes, a man has to do, what a man has to do.  And, then there were two!  As if we didn’t know who was “winning!”   Here’s a look at the weekly Q&A from your resident Bachelor Couple, Ann and Jesse Csincsak:

1. Overall, what did you think of tonight’s episode? What was your favorite part?

Jesse: It’s was very uneventful!  I was glad to see Kacie come back; it made it a little more interesting.

Ann: I enjoy watching the show more towards the end because you’re a little more invested in the girls and who goes home and who stays. In the beginning, I don’t care as much about who gets cut!

When Former ‘Bachelorette’ winner Jesse Csincsak treads deep into the Colorado woods, he should bring a few lotto tickets with him.  On Friday, February 17, the Breckenridge local was snowmobiling 15 miles in the middle of the backcountry in Vail when he came across a lost mother and her son.  Mother, Hilary Skye, and son, Dillon, had been stranded before Jesse came to the rescue.  This isn’t the first (or second) serendipitous encounter to sneak up on the professional snowboarder as he’s navigated the trails of the Rocky Mountains.  Last year Thomas Pazerunas had also lost his way 15 miles behind the Vail Resort with no cell service until Csincsak helped him.

This week on The Bachelor Season 16 with Ben Flajnik, we were taken to the horse country, the Bible Belt, a Texas-style dress-up party and a mock wedding.  Yes, three women and a wedding.  Lindzi got to show Ben what it was like to race horses, ride horses and grow up with horses all around her.  She said she rode before she even walked.  Nikki’s fun-loving spirit led Ben into a Texan cowboy store where they both bought hats and boots and sported being a Texan all day.  Ben said it was something that he always wanted to do.  Courtney invited Ben not only to meet her family but to meet his future wife (her) in a full-course wedding with an officiant and all.  They exchanged vows in what some Twitter followers say was a rip-off of Sex and the City.  Overall, the parents seemed down-to-earth and warm towards Ben.  However, the one family that didn’t welcome him as easily was Kacie B.  Unfortunately, their traditional values and lack of alcohol consumption (after all, Ben is a wine maker) probably got in the way of his feelings for her.  At the end of the episode, she was the one who was sent packing.

Welcome to Belize.   This week’s episode of ‘The Bachelor’ had quite a few break downs.  Lindzi gets a Blue Lagoon type date with Ben and they spend their date hunting for food caveman style.  They end the date by writing a fairy tale love note, putting it in a bottle and sending it out to sea (cheesy).  Nikki has break down #1 complaining that she needs a one-on-one with Ben.

Breakdown #2 was in full swing by Courtney after she becomes enraged at her ‘boyfriend’ for betraying her by giving Emily a date card.  Unfortunately for Emily, there was absolutely no on-air chemistry between them although viewers had to witness their disgusting display of tongue action (gross)!

By Lori Bizzoco and Steven Zangrillo

Welcome to Panama.  This season of ‘The Bachelor’ has taken a turn for the… weird.  First, we have serial nudist Courtney Robertson who continues to use her body to command Ben’s attention.  While on the other end of the sexual spectrum, we have prude-gone-wild Jamie who gives full on kissing instructions to Ben.  And, somewhere caught in the middle is Blakely who during the two-on-one date with Rachel, reveals an over-the-top visual board to Ben fantasizing the non-existent romance she was having with him.  Jamie and Blakeley were sent packing.

The one-on-one date was with Kacie B., who Ben took to a  private island (surprise!).  Over the course of the date Kacie divulges that she once had an eating disorder.  Opening up to Ben gets her a rose.  On the group date, the girls are taken a tribal village in Panama. The girls all don traditional Panamanian tribal wear – over their bikinis. Courtney, however, decided that beads alone would do the job.  Ben didn’t look so upset about it.  However, Lindzi was the one receiving the rose much to Courtney’s dismay.

The drama shifted to Puerto Rico this week, where Ben and the remaining ladies visited the island of Vieques.  Nicki got the first date, but with a downpour of rain and no umbrellas, the duo was forced to do some shopping for “authentic” and dry Puerto Rican threads.  Ben gave Nicki a rose that evening.

For the group date, Ben took the ladies to the historic Roberto Clemente Stadium where they were divided into two teams and went head-to-head in a baseball game.  The winning team would enjoy a wonderful beach party with Ben.  Kacie B.’s team won and she got the group rose that night but directly following it, Courtney stole Ben at fourth base with some baseball playing of her own.

Drama continues in Park City, Utah where Rachel had the first one-on-one date with Ben and got Rose 1.  Then came the group date where the girls rode on horseback through the woods, and spent an afternoon fly fishing.  Ben was testing their ability to be in the country and in a group setting.  Unfortunately for some (Samantha Levey), it didn’t work out in her favor.  Tensions mounted when Courtney Robertson pulled Ben away and actually caught a fish in the process!  Then, she stole Ben again and told him that she needed reassurance where she won his heart and got Rose 2.  While she was gloating, Samantha was told by Ben that she was too “emotional” and he sent her packing before the Rose Ceremony.   The last date and final rose went to the shy and reserved Jennifer Fritsch (then again, Ben did vote her best kisser).  On their one-on-one, the new Bennifer plummeted into a 300 foot crater together.  After it was over, they ran through pouring rain to an outdoor concert by country singer, Clay Walker and she was given date Rose 3.  With Samantha already gone, there was only one more person to eliminate that evening.  Say good-bye to Monica Spannbauer.  And then there were 12.

1. What are your initial thoughts about Rachel? 

Jesse: I think Rachel is down to earth; she really seemed to like the lake and canoe date.  I think it’s pretty rad that she is normal and can enjoy the simple stuff.

Ann: My initial thoughts were: I love her bangs.  But passed that, I haven’t seen or heard enough from her to form an opinion.  I have barely noticed a lot of the girls this season, because they either don’t talk very much, or they are going to be cut early on, so the producers aren’t showing them too often.

The city of San Francisco provided the back-drop for what ended up being one of the most dramatic episodes in recent history of The Bachelor.  Ben and Emily climbed to the top of the Golden Gate Bridge, Brittney left before her one-on-one date with the winemaker, Shawntel (the funeral director from Brad Womack’s season) re-surfaced to confess her crush, and one of the ladies fainted at the rose ceremony!  Wow, what an episode.  To help us make sense of the craziness, here are insights from Bachelor experts Jesse and Ann Csincsak.
