Do Ben and the girls have real chemistry?

The Bachelor never fails to amaze me with the group date activities they dream up. As if the contestants don’t already feel like rats in some experiment, studied under the watchful eye of the Bachelor producers, Ben Higgins’ contestants were tested for their scientific compatibility with Ben on their very first group date. I suppose this activity kind of made sense in terms of Ben quickly narrowing down his options and gaining some “information” about the girls!

The girls entered the premise and were greeted by Dr. Love, who introduced the building as “The Lab.” Terrifying.  Dr. Love and his team did a retinal tracking test, measuring how long the women’s eyes lingered on certain visual stimuli. Not holding back, the scientists then measured how the women smelled and made Ben describe the scent. In a very unfortunate turn, he described one woman’s scent as “sour.” Off to a great start in that relationship! The doctor tried to spin it by saying, “Sweet and sour, but that’s great in Chinese food!” Nice try, Dr. Love.

Ben and the women then had to interact while their bodies were monitored. Best of all, the other women of course had to watch them on a screen. I’m not sure if any of the results actually mattered in the end, but this date, while a little creepy, was actually very entertaining.
