This was quite possibly the most awkward episode this franchise has ever had. Yes, it even rivals the hot pepper kiss between Evan and Carly.
Plus, we lost Yuki. BRING BACK YUKI! In other news, did anyone else get the feeling that Ben's breakdown will be the impetus to bring him back to be The Bachelor again? I don't necessarily think that was his intention, but I can see production spinning it that way if there's no breakout star in the next cast of dudes.
Here's the full live-scoring spreadsheet from Tuesday night, so you can see how all of the points were awarded.
