At the end of The Bachelor, we saw Ben Flajnik down on one knee proposing in Switzerland to bad girl of the season Courtney Robertson. Since, he has discussed his breakup with Courtney, after revealing the news on the After The Final Rose special.
He said, “I will admit, over the course of the season airing, I had my doubts about the woman I proposed to. I wouldn’t have done anything differently, but I was scared that maybe I didn’t know her as well as I thought I did. I found myself shocked at some of the comments she made.”
You’re not alone, Ben, we were shocked that she was so rude with the other women and when they warned you about it, you said, “Tread lightly”. Ugh.
He continued, “At one point the pressure became too much and I told her I needed a break. Courtney was cool enough to allow me time to clear my head. I became worried about staying in a relationship that had so much negativity surrounding it, so I eventually called off the engagement and we broke up.”
You would think that’s a good move for him, right? Perhaps then he could quite possibly salvage something with the nicer woman, Lindzi.
He added, “Fortunately, that breakup didn’t last long. The love I feel for her, love that I couldn’t deny even amidst all the bad press and lack of public support, brought me back to her.”
How long do you think they’re going to last?
