Ben Flajnik on Courtney Robertson: Such Strong Feelings!

by at . Comments

In a new blog post, Ben Flajnik details how his feelings for Courtney Robertson are strong, despite things the other women on The Bachelor have said about her.

Try as they might, as we saw on last night's episode, Courtney's rivals have failed in their efforts to paint Courtney in a negative light. At least in Ben's eyes.

Flajnik writes in his weekly People blog that while The Bachelor "may not have been the best environment" for Robertson (ya think?), their connection is for real.

Of Courtney Robertson, Ben writes, "Here I was, amongst the clouds, with such an amazing woman. I'd never felt so close to my father and to my happiness."

"To share this moment with Courtney was an exciting experience, and I knew if we moved forward that we would always be able to share this moment."

"That evening, however, things got a little strange. It's a tough thing, I understand, for the women to find a fine line between getting along with the other women and realizing it's difficult to be friends with people dating the people you are dating."

"I've been there, and it's tough. 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.  As the rose ceremony approached, I had a lot going through my head."

"All the women told me about their reservations regarding Courtney; I had to think about what I was missing, or if this was all just 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."

"It was a lot to consider, but my conversation with Courtney at the rose ceremony reaffirmed that I have to focus on the way she is when she's with me."

"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."

There you have it. She's on to the final four, and possibly beyond (see The Bachelor spoilers for the scoop, we think, on how the season plays out).

Love her or hate her, there's never been a Bachelor hopeful like Courtney.

Is she just a victim of editing and relentless cattiness/jealousy? Or does she deserve all the criticism she's gotten by virtue of her own behavior/quotes?

You tell us: Courtney Robertson ...


Courtney is almost like one of those psycho killers on a scary movie. The way she talks, the gestures she makes, etc. she is very scary to me. If he picks her, then it is what he deserves, because all the other girls have warned him.


I had total respect for Ben in the beginning, but skinny dipping with Courtney was down right disrespectful, not only to himself but the other girls on the show. I really thought he was much smarter than that! How insensitive can he be!


As a man I'd think one of the considerations of choosing a bride is "would this be the woman I'd want to bring home to meet my mom?" If his answer is "yes, I'd bring a woman home to my mom who willing to take her clothes off in front of millions of people to "win", then he deserves what he get. However,I must say I'd like to offer my sympathies to you for your son bringing home such an unbalanced, crazy woman only interested in


Ben is a complete idiot. Smart like a fox, but an insensitive manipulative guy who is being out manipulated by the bitch. Sad show


I have to agree in part with what "Kay" says. I think Ben can be a bit abrasive and may be not so nice in reality....maybe a bit 'controlling' if he doesn't get his way? Certainly he was not graceful in defeat with Ashley. Have you looked at his face when he is sending someone home, not at all embarrassed or sad for them, just a straight look in the eye with a "I'm sorry ..." and a tight mouth.
If he chooses Courtney, I'll give it a month. KacieB is the obvious choice.


I thought Ben was a smart, classy guy, but now I know I'm mistaken.
He gets what he deserves.


i just heard on the radio this morning that Ben picked the looser courtney!seriously? this show is one big joke. its great that the rest of the girls were not picked (coz they sure are one real classy women than the little miss winner courtney)


Trudy, ya , her method (Courtney's) is to basically scare the shit out of him constantly and keep him off balance, threatening to leave, the spark is gone, I didn't get a one on one. Yadayada. I have to admit I've peeked at a few of the episodes even though she grosses me right out. It almost a weird compulsion like wanting to keep smelling milk when you know it's sour. Truly she is disgusting- weird lip thing, baby talk, narcissistic, dumb...


Note to Bachelor producers: if you want the show to go in a bad direction keep picking loser Bachelor/Bachelorettes. Seriously, after this show, I don't know if you'll attract any serious/good people. I mean obviously some people are just in it for the 15 minutes of fame thing, like Courtney. Ben was a weak choice- so disappointing too, after I heard him play the piano, I thought he'd be a cooler guy. I'd seriously reconsider the Bachelorette choice you've got (Emily) - people want something new.


hope he has one hell of a pepnup cause she will take him to the cleaners.
