Ben Flajnik kept Kacie Boguskie around for a long time on The Bachelor. So what were the qualities he found so attractive in her? Hear from himself in quotes from the most recent episode of the series.

One of the first things Ben said about Kacie was,”I like that she exudes confidence.” And when her confidence failed as the hometown date went on, that’s when his own doubts crept up.

Ben said that Kacie put him “at ease” and that she’s “endearing.” He continued to praise her, saying, “She knows what she wants. She knows who she is.” Another compliment he had about her was that he, “sensed this good quality in her.” Quality stock, hell yea. But not right for Ben, apparently. It’s a true shame.

How much will you miss the couple that was Ben Flajnik and Kacie Boguskie?
