Odd Observations about the Rose Ceremony:
Ben: An unspoken rule on The Bachelor franchise is that you can’t get a haircut to the point of it being noticeable. Even more important, you can’t get a noticeable haircut in the same episode. But it was pretty obvious that Ben’s mop top, which was mentioned a couple times during the episode, was trimmed to the point of barely being classified as shaggy, as noticed in the rose ceremony.
Dreamy host, Chris Harrison: He wore a vertically striped shirt with a solid color tie that had one random diagonal stripe going across the top. That’s sort of pushing the envelope for a polygamist game show host, for some reason.
Constantine: He totally looked like Dracula.
