"There is something very interesting I noticed about Courtney this week, and that is just how much she makes everything about her. Most of the girls are worried about how much they are opening up to [Ben Flajnik]. Courtney, on the other hand, said several times that Ben needs to step up his game and open up to her," the host wrote on his Entertainment Weekly bog.
Harrison said although many of the women have warned Ben about Robertson's behavior in which The Bachelor's broadcasts have shown the 28-year-old model from Santa Monica, CA engaging in seductive and aggressive behavior to catch Flajnik's attention and promote jealousy amongst her fellow bachelorette competitors, Robertson has a gift for quickly relieving his concerns.
"If you're keeping score at home, that makes a total of five different women who have gone out of their way to warn Ben about this woman. It does have him thinking, and he had a half-hearted talk with her before the rose ceremony, but when they are alone she knows exactly what to say to settle his nerves," Harrison explained.
While Robertson knew all the right things to say, it was apparently Emily O'Brien's conversations with Flajnik that led to her demise. Harrison claimed that O'Brien dug herself a hole when she chose to confront Flajnik about Courtney's true colors earlier this season and didn't have enough time to fully redeem herself once she realized she shouldn't focus on the other women.
"I'm guessing most of you were stunned that Ben sent Emily home, especially after their incredible date this week. Other than that pesky blond hair, Emily was everything Ben was looking for in a woman. I can't help but think that despite her rebound in recent weeks, her skirmish with Courtney and subsequent confrontational talks with Ben just put her too far behind," the host said.
"Emily is somebody I'm very much looking forward to talking with at the Women Tell All special to get her take on everything that went down and figure out what went wrong from her perspective."
Harrison also suggested that Flajnik's relationships with the remaining four bachelorettes -- Kacie Boguskie, Nicki Sterling, Lindzi Cox, and Robertson -- may change drastically during the hometown visits.
"Next week we return to the States for the all important hometown dates. This will be a huge week, as fortunes will quickly change for some of the women. I can tell you that these are among the most emotional hometowns we've ever seen, and the women all take tremendous strides forward. One hometown in particular goes in a direction that you'd never expect, and you're just going to have to see it to Belize it," he added.
