I think Ben's biggest problem is that he lacks a filter. He comes out and says exactly what he and everyone else is thinking. Not very diplomatic, but blunt and straight to the point. Those who don't like him are the very ones that don't have the stones to stand up and say 'yes, that's exactly what I'm thinking too but I'm afraid to speak up because I'll be kicked out of the good ol' boys' club'.
