We noted in our Bachelor 16 Episode 2 Review that our good ol’ pal Ben Frajnik says the phrase “near and dear to my heart” like, a lot. A lot as in, a shit ton. It’s getting to the point where it’s painful to hear it.
It’s partially painful because we actually kind of like Ben. He’s a genuine dude that fell in love with that Ashlee chic (Ashley, Ashli, Ashleyieieieei. I don’t care anymore) had his heart broken, and told her what was up instead of sugar coating it with “you’re the best. you’re awesome. you’re nice” ABC horse shit.
He is a real, rugged, wine-drinking dude. And we like him. We want to like him. But since we don’t actually watch the show he’s on by choice (thanks, hun), we also want to get drunk. Fast.
So, in an odd way, this new drinking game we’ve created (which we would LOVE for you to join in on) is all thanks to Benji (yeah, we’re still calling him that).
So play along. With Ben and us. Have your shots ready and in hand, and slam it back every time our favorite Bachelor says those increasingly annoying and sappy words – “near and dear to my heart”.
Tell your friends and spread the joy. Something tells me there will be a lot of sleep overs when The Bachelor’s third episode of Season 16 airs on Monday night.
