I'm not seeing much if any bokeh in these images but more background blur.

This also goes to show that theres much more to an image than background blur/bokeh. Choice of backdrop is much more important.

lol. Time to read the definition again?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokeh

Here you go taken from your wiki source.

"the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light"

"Bokeh is often most visible around small background highlights, such as specular reflections and light sources, which is why it is often associated with such areas."

Background blur and bokeh are two separate things its a common misunderstanding to think that background blur is = to bokeh.

Are you serious? Of course they are different things. Bokeh is a subjective measure of the quality of that blur. You can call it bad bokeh if you like, but it's a bit hard to say it doesn't exist. How can an opinion of quality not exist? I suppose you can just have no opinion of the quality?

I suppose this is the reason I rarely use the term.

(edit) Also, there are highlights in those photos anyway, so I have no idea what you are talking about.
