After a controversial courtship, brief breakup and dubious reconciliation, The Bachelor stars Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson are still giving it a go.

The California winemaker, 29, and the model, 28, are moving in together at the San Francisco pad Flajnik shares with two pals, according to Us Weekly.

They're in the process of looking for their own place now, but before they find that nest, the pair went on a sexy vacation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

During their five-day break, Courtney Robertson has been showing off her famous figure in a tiny bikini, her shaggy man dutifully by her side at the pool.

Although Robertson has dealt with public disdain for her very, very bad behavior on The Bachelor, "she wants to save this relationship," a source tells Us.

Prior to the trip, an onlooker at San Francisco's Park Tavern observed the engaged pair looking "very snuggly... Ben had his arm around her the entire time."

Robertson is still wearing her 3-carat Neil Lane ring from Chris Harrison Ben, FYI. If they're going to crash and burn, they're giving it their best shot first.

What do you think: Any way this is gonna work?

The Bachelor stars Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson are determined to make this thing work in spite of all the negativity - and they appear to be succeeding.

At least in the immediate aftermath of The Bachelor bloodbath.

Once host-pimp Chris Harrison coughed up and Ben re-issued the $80,000 Neil Lane ring to Courtney on the After The Final Rose special, they turned a corner.

Courtney says that despite the bumps in the road over the last few months, things are progressing nicely and she's nothing but optimistic for the future.

"We try not to pay attention to it," Courtney said this week of the tabloid scrutiny. "I guess positive stories don’t sell, so no one wants to run the truth."

However, it hasn't been all nude photo scandals, cheating rumors and hating. The general public, Court says, has been quite supportive in recent weeks:

“I just spent the weekend with Ben in San Francisco and people kept coming up, offering words of encouragement. So, things seem to be getting better.”

Courtney Robertson reiterated that she believes Ben did not cheat, saying "at the end of the day, if I didn’t trust him, I wouldn’t be with him, period."

“He trusted and believed in the real me. This has been the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through, but I’d do it again in a heartbeat. I found Ben; he made everything worth it.”

The Bachelor’s Courtney Robertson isn't exactly a woman with a pristine reputation to start with, but there are even more skeletons in her closet, a tabloid claims.

Considering what we saw throughout the entire season of the show she - to the dismay of millions - won, the claims made by In Touch Weekly aren't shocking.

Whether they're true or not is a different story.

Courtney Robertson SECRETS!

With Ben Flajnik still trying to run damage control over his obvious ass grabbing pics, Courtney has been hiding some pretty racy stuff from her fiance, as well.

Chief among that stuff? Courtney Robertson nude photos.

The model did a full-on naked Playboy shoot, In Touch reports, plastering a little tease of one photo on the cover, which also claims she had a boob job.

The Playboy pics we can see ... the boob job not so much. There's plenty about Court that appears fake, sure, but her chest is not included on that list.

In Touch, which also hints at some (less-scandalous) Emily Maynard secrets, is clearly jumping on the Bash Courtney Bandwagon, but to what end?

The Bachelor star Ben Flajnik is further elaborating on the controversial photos that show him apparently hooking up with other women during his recent split from Courtney Robertson. His explanation? A little dubious, at best.

Of the image that shows him clearly grabbing a female's rear end and kissing her, he says it was an old friend - and just a friendly butt pat, not a full-on, "I am attracted to you in a sexual manner" style arse grab. Mmmyeah.

The curvature of his hand does not suggest patting, but whatever:

"I have not hooked up with another woman - on my father's grave. Those women they mentioned are my friends in San Francisco," Ben Flajnik said on a conference call with reporters after The Bachelor season finale.

"But, Ben, there are photos of you clearly kissing someone and grabbing her rear," People's Monica Rizzo replied, to her credit.

"If you look at the pictures, I'm not kissing her. And that's a butt pat. My friends grab my butt. I'm physical and affectionate with friends - guys and girls," he insisted.

Again, look at the image above and decide for yourself.

"Maybe you just needed to let your hair down.  [At the time] we were still in a rough place. But I believe he didn't cheat," added Courtney Robertson on the call.

Away from reality TV cameras and free to roam amid additional scrutiny from paparazzi cameras, The Bachelor stars Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson are playing the loving couple in the aftermath of their controversial winter on ABC.

Things appear to be going well and relatively uneventfully ... mostly.

Ben, who recently shared his first public pic with Courtney, appears eager to prove the skeptics wrong and show that their relationship is the real deal.

  • Ben Flajnik's Long Hair

The reality couple put on quite the amorous (and camera ready) display when Ben picked Courtney Robertson up from the San Francisco airport last week.

They acted like lovebirds as they locked lips and cuddled publicly upon being reunited, her Neil Lane diamond ring still firmly on her finger, witnesses say.

However, the pair's PDA will undeniably be met with cynicism by some.

Last week during the After the Final Rose special, Ben Flajnik admitted the negativity surrounding the season caused them to break off their engagement.

While they've since gotten back together, The Bachelor duo was also later seen looking subdued and not exhibiting any affectionate body language.

Are they just going through the motions? Or are they more of a normal pair then we probably think, in spite of everything that played out on television?

The burning question: Will Ben and Courtney last?

Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson are officially that couple.

That couple goes out in public and posts photos of themselves in order to flaunt their relationship online ... basically any couple in the social media era.

Of course, they're anything but a conventional pair. Just one week ago, Ben's proposal to Courtney - and the dirty laundry that followed - aired on TV.

Incredibly, despite a breakup since The Bachelor season finale, the two appear to have weathered the storm, and are now taking their romance public:

"1st pic out in public," the winemaker Tweeted with this pic.

A witness who saw the pair out and about tells Us Weekly:

"Saw Ben and Courtney dining with two other guests in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco. She was wearing her ring and they looked cozy."

Aww. Despite Ben kissing random chicks just last month and her overall psychosis on The Bachelor this season, things are looking up for the couple.

The Bachelor host slash pimp Chris Harrison says that Courtney Robertson and Ben Flajnik just might last. What do you think? Do they stand a chance?

The Bachelor host Chris Harrison spoke to reporters via conference call today and shared his thoughts on the re-engaged Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson.

Chris paints a fair portrait of the controversial couple, and sympathizes with Courtney (though he concedes he and his family were Team Lindzi from the start).

Will the couple make it? Will we see them on TV again? And what was it like whipping out that ring on the After the Final Rose special? So many questions.

Excerpts from his lengthy interview on all of that and more below:

Courtney, Ben

On whether he's rooting for rooting Ben and Courtney:

"Of course I'm rooting them on. You know, why wouldn't you?"

"I mean, I know that she wasn't the most popular choice and that if you put it to America's vote maybe she wouldn't have been in it, but I think the important thing and the great thing about the show is that was Ben's choice."

"Why not respect that? Who am I not to respect that? And so of course I wish them the best and the million dollar question, will they make it? Who knows? Who's to say which couples make it in life? But I wish them the very best.

Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson of The Bachelor cover Us Weekly this week ... for the fourth time this year. None of which have been positive portrayals.Ben Flajnik Proposing to Courtney Robertson

In the aftermath of The Bachelor season finale, the tabloid uses the following headline to describe the lovebirds: "Liar Liar! Inside Their Web Of Deceit." 

Hmm. Wonder how they really feel about Ben and Court.

Ben and Courtney Us Cover

The viewing populace wasn't thrilled that Ben Flajnik chose Courtney Robertson over Lindzi Cox with the final rose Monday, but Us takes it to a new level.

The magazine states unequivocally that their relationship is all a lie, claiming:

  • That Ben kissed a bunch of random girls last month (that appears true).
  • That he never stopped chasing other women since their "reconciliation."
  • That Courtney’s tearful After the Final Rose apology was all for show. 
  • That there's another girl and Ben and Courtney are over already.

Not hard to believe, given the utterly awkward and uncomfortable ATFR special Monday, but remember, this magazine has tried to take them down all winter:

  • Ben Flajnik Us Cover
  • Courtney the Man-Eater
  • Courtney Robertson: Shameless Seduction!

What do you think? Is this all to sell magazines, or is the couple really destined to fail - if they haven't already? And was this the worst Bachelor season ever?

Vote below: Will Ben and Courtney last?

Ben Flajnik's decision to propose to Courtney Robertson on The Bachelor finale was not exactly well received, but he stands by it, saying they're a great fit.

The reality star hopes that as the recent controversy dies down, "people will get a better understanding of who we are and why we're still together."

Ben admits he saw signs of Courtney Robertson's now-infamously catty behavior this season, "like when she would skip back after getting a rose."

Just the same, "I asked [the other women] for specific examples and [they said], 'She's weird,' or 'She's different.' That wasn't reason enough."

Ben Flajnik Proposing to Courtney Robertson

Ben Flajnik says there were "many really sweet moments that we had together" that kept him interested in Courtney Robertson, come what may.

Plus, he adds, "She was one of the only girls on the show that questioned the experience and that's what I found attractive about her – and I still do."

"Courtney was always like, 'I've only been on two dates with you, why should I bring you home right now? My family is really important to me.'"

"It was like, finally, someone who asks the right questions instead of [saying], 'It's going be wonderful and we could be married for the rest of our lives.' "

Despite acknowledging that the two split for several weeks this winter, during which he kissed a bunch of random girls, Ben says they "will be fine."

"Maybe someday people will get behind us, but for now we work really well together," he says. "The Bachelor will not define me as a person."

Question is: Will Ben and Courtney last?

The Bachelor's Ben Flajnik adamantly denied - swore on his father's grave, no less - that he kissed other girls during his brief time apart from Courtney Robertson.

These photos clearly show him kissing Alison McGlone and another girl, however.

Here's the deal: Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson got engaged on the finale ... but he dumped her after seeing what a psycho she was throughout the season.

They were apart for a period in February, when the pics (below) were taken.

Courtney and Ben reconciled soon after, but he still swore up and down after The Bachelor finale that he didn't stray from her at any point. Why?

  • Ben Flajnik Cheating?
  • Alison McGlone and Ben Flajnik
  • Ben Flajnik, Alison McGlone

According to Pacific Coast News, which did its best to document all of Ben's activities, he kissed a second, unnamed girl after bar-hopping in San Francisco February 17.

Ben then kissed a third unidentified woman (red pants) after the bars closed.

Doesn't look like the way you kiss a "friend," does it? Ben was later seen being escorted home by some girl, who also left the next morning in the same clothes.

The following night, Flajnik was seen on a romantic late night dog walk with another woman, Alison McGlone (above, center and right) whom he could be seen kissing.

Note that there is ass-grabbing going. Not "friend" material. Early the next day, Alison McGlone was seen leaving his house and walking home ... in the same clothes.

Again, he and Court had split up during this window. But he may have also blatantly lied on TV. Pure celebrity gossip fodder, perhaps. But that doesn't mean it's false.

It all makes you wonder ... will Ben and Courtney last?
