Nicki Sterling


Are you sick of The Bachelor yet? It’s almost over, and Ben will soon pick a woman to spend a few months with before they have a very public break-up and move on to ill-conceived spin-offs and paid club appearances. But first, we have to get down to the very serious business discussing this week’s rose ceremony, where Ben Flajnik picked Courtney Robertson over Nicki Sterling.

In his People.com blog, Ben explains that he loves being around Courtney and they have many things in common like sex and swimming naked, and some other stuff:

“I light up every time I am around Courtney…We had a lot of natural, easy-going fun exploring the town, and I realized how many things we have in common when it comes to things like traveling, food and music.”

Courtney really ended up saving herself when, in their conversation, she just admitted that she didn’t get along with the other women, and could have done a better job not being a psycho. It was ultimately her declaration of love that convinced him. He explains that, “We had a great time in Scottsdale, Ariz., and Courtney told me she loves me, which felt so good. I love her silliness and quirkiness, but I want to see an emotional side too, and this came just in time.”

But he was happier to hear her admit some of her wrong-doing through out the entire season:

“The dinner conversation we had was exactly what I needed to hear. I was really relieved to hear Courtney admit that she could have tried harder to get along with the women. I know they were sometimes mean to her, too, but I needed to hear her say that she could have done things much differently and may have gotten much better results. I have tried this entire journey to be patient and more forgiving. Courtney was worth the patience and I was happy to feel like she turned a big corner.”

The producers threw him a curve ball by flaying Kacie back in, and it almost swayed him, but Ben decided to just go with Courtney:

“Hearing her warn me about Courtney’s insincerity again brought everything to a head. I had just laid most of my concerns with Courtney to rest, and then it was like everything we had worked toward was swept away again. I went into the rose ceremony incredibly confused about the big picture and had to just follow my heart when I handed out the roses.”

On his blog on EW.com, The Bachelor host Chris Harrison doesn’t look at the situation with the same romanticism as Ben, and calls Courtney out for “manipulating” the date in the last episode in order to get what she wants. This must be another of her patented seduction techniques! Chris says:

There is one thing I noticed again this week concerning Courtney and Ben. Courtney continues to turn the situation around, giving her the power position. For example this week while the other two women chose to accept the fantasy suite, Courtney turned the tables and asked Ben to accept. These things are very subtle, but it’s a defense mechanism of hers she’s used several times with him. Ben left that date feeling good about Courtney and their relationship.”

Now, even though Courtney acted awful this whole season, I feel compelled to give her some credit because she focused on Ben, made him feel wanted, and she’s in the top two, and will more than likely end up winning the whole thing. As many have said before, the show is called The Bachelor, not The Best Friend.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT COURTNEY MAKING IT TO THE TOP TWO? DO YOU THINK BEN SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO THE WARNINGS? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE FINALE, AND FOR THE ‘WOMEN TELL-ALL EPISODE?


The Bachelor is tumbling close to its finale, and even though most of us are aware of the spoiler that couldn’t be contained, there is still more drama surrounding his choice. According to a new report, once Ben Flajnik viewed the first two episodes of this season, he was disgusted and embarrassed with his fiance, and “had a sudden change of heart”. He is reportedly now chasing his runner-up.

However, there is one tiny problem – there is a new rumor that Courtney Robertson (one of the two finalists) is pregnant! The source tells In Touch Weekly, “He’s freaked out. He’s completely petrified at the thought of starting a family with someone he has only known for a few months.” Well, who can blame him?

So, how exactly did Courtney trap Ben into her web? A source broke down her seduction techniques for US Magazine so we can all follow along at home. They may astound you!

The first shocking piece of information is that Courtney “looked to The Bachelor as a game. Ben was the prize, and she was going to win.” She probably saw it as a game with a prize, because that’s kind of what the show is. If you want true love, visit match.com. If you want fame amongst dozens and a public short-term fling, visit this reality show!

Next, Courtney used her clothing, and the source says “she was very particular about what she wore and when she wore it” just like the hundreds of women who just bought lingerie to show off for Valentine’s Day, and just like anyone who has kept their nicer outfits for date nights or special occasions. How cunning of Courtney to engage in this totally normal, mundane ritual!

You’d be very surprised to know that another technique Courtney used was her sexuality! Contestant Jaime Otis said, “Courtney knew Ben was sexually attracted to her. She wasn’t shy to use it.” This is just pure evil, and none of the other women have worn sexy outfits for Ben, or made out with him, in an an attempt to use his sexual attraction to them for their favor. Courtney is the only one!

Courtney saw this situation as some sort of war, and word is she even trained for it. Another contestant, Monica reveals she indulged in “four-hour [naps] before every event” and she used passive-aggressive remarks to keep the other ladies down. Eliminated contestant Emily O’Brien says, “Those little jabs were tactics to try to intimidate all of us, to get us off of our game, and to take the focus off of Ben.”

Like many reality vixens before her, she was not there to make friends, and a source reports she was trained by her agent to keep quiet: “Courtney said her agent prepared her well and told her not to share any personal information with the girls. She kept in her corner the whole time. She never made conversation with the girls.”

More interestingly, the source confirms what we already know is true – Courtney lied to Ben about being unlucky in love prior to being on the show. In fact, Courtney’s dating history is pretty varied. She’s dated actor Jesse Metcalf, Reese Witherspoon’s husband and power agent Jim Toth, and right before the show, dated photographer Clark Cavan. This isn’t counting her rumored San Francisco sugar daddy whose photos she apparently scrubbed from her Facebook wall once the show began airing.

There’s also the news that once Courtney realized Ben was a millionaire, she used this information as her focus. This is also probably very true, since the men she’d dated were all rich and successful. We’re not saying she’s a gold-digger, but knowing that Ben had money was likely what kept her game so razor sharp. And the skinny-dipping.

And finally, a report by Wetpaint states that Courtney attended the Women Tell All taping! Making this the first time a Bachelor finalist has attended the taping. The final two women have always skipped the WTA taping, instead taping the After The Rose special. The reason ABC made an exception for Courtney is of course to have her face-off against the other women aka more drama aka more ratings!

A new episode of The Bachelor airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

TELL US: DO YOU THINK COURTNEY IS PREGNANT? DO YOU THINK SHE TRAPPED BEN WITH HER TECHNIQUES? WHO SHOULD BEN PICK?

Aaaahhh… The Bachelor, less successful at matchmaking than Patti Stanger! The paragon for failed engagements has apparently done it again!

Life & Style is reporting that Ben Flajnik has already broken up with the woman he promised to walk down the aisle with courtesy of Neil Lane and ABC. Ben swore he was on the show for the right reasons despite his insistence on keeping Courtney Robertson after she basically got naked on the first date and was a complete twat-asaurus to the other women in the house. He reassured America and twenty-five desperate women that he believed in love and knew his wife was amongst them.

And despite a rocky start, Ben definitely found love and proposed to one lucky lady atop a mountain in the Swiss Alps. When Ben got down on one knee for his second time on reality TV, this time the woman whispered “yes!” and engaged they were! But not for long because it seems nearly as soon as the plane touched down on US soil the problems began!

Multiple sources are confirming that a scant three months after a fairytale engagement things are already falling apart for the couple! Well, if Ben chose who we all suspect he did it’s no wonder they’re having problems! Ahem…famewhore!

“They have totally cooled off,” a source who knows the winning woman reveals. “They often go five to six days without talking. He doesn’t call her, he doesn’t text. She keeps saying, ‘What kind of a fiancé is this?’ In her mind, he’s pretty much dumped her.” Perhaps it’s watching the episodes every week and seeing what really went on behind his back has something to do with Ben losing interest in said fiance.

And that is exactly what seems to be the problem! According to an insider who knows Ben well, the Sonoma, CA winemaker was sincere when he proposed, but watching the show week after week and seeing less flattering sides to the women has opened his eyes. “Ben started to feel like he got played,” the insider explains, and he is ready to move on! According to another source, Ben is even considering moving to NYC to live with friends. THAT I don’t believe – Ben loves his vineyard!

Ben has become so distant from the woman he asked to be his wife, she thinks he’s cheating! “[The winner] thinks Ben’s cheating on her,” a source confides. “She knows he’s been running around New York with other girls and not calling her. She thinks he’s a coward. She just wishes he’d end it already — otherwise maybe she’ll do it herself.”

I say they both got what they were looking for out of the deal. Fame, attention, and more opportunity!

In other Bachelor news, next week the final four women bring Ben home to meet their families. See exclusive behind the scenes photos from next week’s episode below! The remaining women are Courtney, Kacie B, Lindzi, and Nicki!

On last night’s episode of The Bachelor, sucker Ben Flajnik continued to prove he is Courtney-tized!

Despite very strong warnings from his bachelorettes about 28-year-old model Courtney Robertson, Ben refused to let her go, keeping her for next week’s hometown dates.

In his weekly blog for PEOPLE, Ben, age 28, opens up about his “strong” feelings for Courtney, while also explaining why he decided to ignore the strong warnings from the other contestants about her.

First Ben defends, yes defends, Court-court: “I know it’s been hard for Courtney, and to be honest, I’m not sure this was the best environment for her. But, just as I tell the women to take our relationships individually, I try to do the same. My feelings for Courtney are strong and I don’t want to let external forces get in the way.”

Ben goes on to explain why he decided to pull Courtney away during the rose ceremony. Ben writes, “As the rose ceremony approached, I had a lot going through my head. All the women told me about their reservations regarding Courtney, and I really had to think about what I was missing, or if this was all just part of the nature of the women living together. It’s amazing to see how deeply the women felt about their dislike for Courtney, and it’s equally amazing not to see any of that coming through in her actions with me.”

Ben also pretends he actually considered sending Courtney packing! “It was a lot to consider, but my conversation with Courtney at the rose ceremony reaffirmed that I have to take these relationships individually and focus on the way she is when she’s with me,” writes Ben. “I see what some of the women were talking about, but I still feel great about Courtney because when I’m with her, I feel really connected to her.”

But fret not, as Ben assures us the other contestants are still in the running as well! He writes, “In the end, my feelings for Kacie, Nicki, Lindzi and Courtney were the strongest. More than anything, I was completely thrilled that they wanted to take me home to meet their families. Family is everything to me, and it’s a very important part of this journey.”

TELL US – SHOULD BEN HAVE SENT COURTNEY PACKING? DO YOU THINK HE PICKS HER IN THE END?

The Bachelor 16 Cast Photo
With just three weeks until the premiere of The Bachelor season 16, ABC has released the photos of the 25 contestants vying for Ben Flajnik’s heart!

On the season opener, Ben, 29, a winemaker from Sonoma, meets his 25 potential soul mates as he begins his search for “true love.” And in a twist, Ben is taken aback on the first night when Sheryl, a sprite senior citizen, steps out of the limo and confesses she is madly in love with him. But according to the rumor mill, it appears Sheryl was simply there to introduce her granddaughter to Ben.

The ABC press release promises us some more interesting characters such as: “Erika, the young law student, informs Ben that the verdict is in and he is convicted of being sexy. Emily, the germ conscious epidemiologist, doesn’t miss a beat, quickly sanitizing both herself and Ben before grabbing the season’s first kiss. And in a questionable move, Anna decides that Ben should only get a look at her before she struts right by him and straight into the mansion. But what is her real motive? Lindzi arrives on horseback in time to intrigue Ben and capture his attention. And finally, Jenna, a New York blogger, breaking down into tears over early drama with fellow bachelorette Monica.”

The new season of The Bachelor returns to ABC on Jan. 2 (8/7c).
