Ben Flajnik regrets proposing to Courtney Robertson
'Bachelor' star confesses he should have heeded warnings from her rivals
Former "Bachelor" star Ben Flajnik regrets proposing to former fiancée Courtney Robertson and not heeding the warnings of her rivals on the show. Just weeks after their split, Robertson has already found a new man in "Bachelorette" Emily Maynard's former flame, Arie Luyendyk Jr. And now that Flajnik had time to process their relationship, he is remorseful for picking the model over the 24 other single women.
He tells Life & Style magazine, "I should apologize to all those women and say, 'Sorry I didn’t see it'. I really have lost all respect for this person that I thought I knew and that I was in love with at one point." Throughout her time on the dating show, Robertson was pinned as a manipulator who was only interested in winning and not finding love with the California winemaker.
And despite warnings from the other women, Flajnik decided to go with his gut and pop the question to Robertson. He admits, "I wanted to see it through on my own. I knew if it was going to work or not. It just took a little bit longer ... She just had me fooled. I talk to my friends all the time and they're like, 'Maybe she was just really good at it. She got all of us fooled, too, Ben. You weren’t the only one.' You know, hindsight is 20/20." The couple briefly broke up shortly after filming ended, but decided to give it another try before ending their engagement in October.
Ben, I'm happy to see you got out without a marriage and all the baggage that would follow when you had to walk away. Shes a fake, from here to China!
I hope all the future Bachelor & Bachelorettes learn by Ben's mistake.
If a certain woman or man cannot get along in the house. You can bet there is NO future with that person. With Courtney there were so many Red Flags. Did Ben think he could change her?
Stupid is as stupid does. Makes that girl(bacholorette) that dumped you at the alter look hella smart now huh. Shes still with that guy. When is his mother going to tell him that haircut looks like crap on a grown man. Bugged me the entire season.
LOOK, PLAIN AND SIMPLE, ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR. LOOK AT LEEANN RIMES (FOR INSTANCE) AND SHE'S HAPPY :) WE DON'T KNOW HOW THIS "GUY" WAS IN A RELATIONSHIP. COULD'VE BEEN A BAD LOVER.... PAID TOO MUCH TO WHAT HIS FRIENDS THOUGHT SO IT EVENTUALLY TURNED HER OFF. I MEAN C'MON NOW. PLUS, HE DID "LISTEN" (LIKE A BOY, NOT A MAN, DOES) TO "OTHER" PEOPLE EARLIER ON IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP AND LEFT HER FOR AWHILE. YOU THINK SHE FORGOT THAT? HE MUST'VE BEEN LACKING IN "SHOWING" HIS LOVE. PLUS, HE TALKED ABOUT EARLIER HAVING LOTS OF GIRLFRIENDS AND THEY ARE VERY PHYSICALLY AFFECTIONATE. I MEAN, REALLY? NO WONDER SHE LEFT. ANY "LADY" WOULD'VE EVENTUALLY. AND DON'T GET ME STARTED WITH THOSE WOMEN FROM THE BACHLORETTE. DRAMA FREAKS!!! LOL. THEIR BOYFRIENDS ARE PROBABLY THE SAME OR OUT CHEATING. LOOK, THIS OTHER "MAN" (SEEMS MORE OF ANYWAY) SHE'S WITH NOW SEEMS LIKE A BETTER MATCH FOR HER. CONGRATULATIONS TO HER!! WHILE THIS FLAJNIK GUY IS SULKING, ROBERTSON AND THIS MAN ARE PROBABLY VERY HAPPY AT THIS MOMENT :) WHEN SOMEONE LEAVES US WE LOVE TO BLAME THE OTHER HALF. BUT WE SHOULD ALSO TAKE A DEEP LOOK AT OURSELVES AND REALIZE WE CONTRIBUTED TO THAT ALOT! :) CLICK HERE TO LEARN WHY
You think Ben? This was the best thing from that dreadful season --> google "I Got the Rose Courtney Autotuned" Hilarious!!
