To the surprise of no one and the dismay of nearly everyone, Courtney Robertson took home the final rose on The Bachelor season finale Monday night.Ben Flajnik, Courtney Robertson Kiss

The most interesting part of the evening came afterward.

On the After the Final Rose special, taped on March 4 and airing right after Ben Flajnik got down on one knee, the couple revealed to host-pimp Chris Harrison that Ben actually dumped Courtney last month ... only to get re-engaged!

What prompted the split? Ben Flajnik watching his model fiancee act like such a petulant, obnoxious psycho b!tch on The Bachelor this season, basically.

Surprisingly (and it seemed quite genuine ... if this was an act for the cameras it was a darn good one) the two patched things up after their breakup.

Ben said he knows Courtney Robertson regrets her behavior and he should've stuck by his bride-to-be through this difficult time, rather than run for the hills.

And hooking up with some other girl, which he denied in the ATFR taping. Whatever. In case there was any doubt, he put the ring BACK on her last night.

All very interesting. What do you think? Do you believe in Courtney and Ben? Will these two make it to the altar and live happily ever after? Vote in our poll:

Will Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson last?

ABC certainly didn't have trouble coming up with a narrative this season.Courtney Robertson Bachelor Finale Dress

With the season finale of The Bachelor on tap tomorrow night, all of America is on pins and needles awaiting the conclusion of an epic morality play.

The Bachelor spoilers have been right all season. Will they be on point Monday as the Black Widow does battle with all that is right with the world?

Maybe that's a bit over the top ... but this promo blatantly uses "Good vs. Courtney" as a tagline for the conclusion of this controversial season:

As for what's allegedly happened since The Bachelor season finale, the rumor mill has been working overtime. Reports of trouble in paradise abound.

We won't say whether Lindzi Cox (good, according to 80+ percent of viewers, and ABC's promo) or Courtney Robertson (evil) got the final rose.

Most people have a pretty good idea where Ben's head is at, though, so follow the jump for the latest report on his current relationship status ...

Seriously, quit reading now if you want to remain in the dark:

The Bachelor season finale and After the Final Rose special air on Monday.

All eyes will be on Ben Flajnik and his fiancee ... whomever that may be.

If you want to know who we think it is, check out The Bachelor spoilers page we've put up and updated throughout the season. But it doesn't sound good ...

Ben Flajnik Dumped?

From the magazine cover above, you'd assume that Ben was not only dumped by either Courtney Robertson or Lindzi Cox already, but he selected the wrong woman on The Bachelor finale, and there's a nude video scandal lurking.

That would be probably one-third true.

All of the reputable intel we've found thus far suggests that he has NOT broken up with his fiancee - despite his increasingly obvious lack of enthusiasm for the show and allegedly kissing some random girl last week.

They're still together. For now.

The After the Final Rose special Monday night should be telling, as it was filmed March 4, and will offer at least some insight on how the couple is doing. It airs immediately after Flajnik doles out his final rose around 9:55 p.m.

Who do you think deserves it?

Ah, The Bachelor's traditional Women Tell All special. Courtney Robertson certainly didn't enjoy it, and neither did The Bachelor himself, Ben Flajnik.

That's putting it mildly, based on his body language ... and now his words.

As he describes in his weekly blog, which has noticeably regressed in its enthusiasm and zest for life in recent installments (wonder why), he writes:

Ben Flajnik on The Bachelor

On the WTA reunion: "At the risk of sounding harsh, I can't say I was looking forward to seeing the women I had sent home over the past few weeks."

"I was surprised to see so many of the women still going at one another ... I'd think that after a few months of not being around each other they would start to bond over the experience they had all just shared. I was wrong again."

On all the crap Blakeley Shea took: "I just want to say again, I respect the fact that she stood on her own and focused on our relationship and didn't let the women affect her as much as most people would have thought."

On crazy, possibly coked-up Samantha: "I wish I could say something nice but honestly, I think you can all see why she went home earlier than expected based on the way she spoke to the women. I'll leave it at that."

On Shawntel Newton: "Poor Shawntel. I still admire the fact that she followed her heart and came back to see me. The women were so cruel to her."

Courtney Robertson's tear-filled, apologetic display on The Bachelor: Women Tell All special was a sight to behold ... though not necessarily in a good way.

What did last season's Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert, think about it?

"I didn't even want to watch," Ashley told E! about the Women Tell All special. "It made me just want to turn it off. It was just like a typical sorority party."

"Everyone fights; I thought people were going to start throwing shoes at each other. It was crazy! I actually do believe Courtney's tears were genuine."

  • One Hot Bachelorette
  • Courtney Robertson Picture

"She apologized from some place in her heart. Was she sorry for hurting the girls? I don't know. For making herself look like a mean girl? I think that's what it is."

Ashley Hebert continued her sort-of-defense of Courtney Robertson:

"I think she did learn and she feels apologetic, but I also feel like the only reason she's apologizing is because of the backlash she's getting from the media."

"Not just the media, but friends, family, everyone. Everyone hates her."

One week from finale night, the ladies of The Bachelor are back for The Women Tell All special, the traditional penultimate episode of the ABC reality show's season.Courtney Robertson: Shameless Seduction!

Typically, this installment is mostly filler. But this is not a typical season.

For the first time in BACHELOR HISTORY, one of the two finalists is going to be in the hot seat. With firebrand Courtney Robertson, they had to make an exception.

We know what The Bachelor spoilers say about the outcome next Monday, but what do the dismissed women have to say about her, and about Ben Flajnik?

Let's break it all down in THG's LIVE +/- recap!

Chris Harrison kicks this off. Rollin' like a P-I-M-P as always. The man is the ultimate show-runner. Smooth, debonair, exuding raw sexiness. Pimp. Plus 20.

Where-are-they-now time-eating Bachelor reunion/STD cesspool montage! Minus 11.

Who are all these people? Randoms are better than Kasey Kahl, but still, Minus 8.

Ali Fedotowsky: Beautiful and stylish. Plus 10. Ed? Frank? Not so much. Minus 7.

Bachelor Pad 3 is gonna. Be. In. Sane. Plus 14.

Best-of-Season-16 montage. Most of these girls' greatest hits involve calling Blakeley a stripper, and did we have to relive the Jamie kiss?! Minus 12.

This Samantha chick apparently took a Five Hour Energy, a Red Bull, a few shots of vodka and a line of coke before coming out on stage. Plus 10.

Who are the 3-4 people who clapped as Brittney said she left the show because she had "no attraction to Ben whatsoever"? Nicely played, audience. Plus 6.

Even Chris is cracking up at Samantha's apparent insanity. Plus 4.

Bachelor Ben Flajnik was allegedly caught kissing a girl not named Courtney Robertson or Lindzi Cox recently. You can see the photo of the kiss at Radar Online.

We think. That could be her name, but that'd be an major coincidence.

The finale of The Bachelor will air March 12 (see The Bachelor spoilers we've compiled for clues at how that turns out), but Ben and his fiancee are reportedly on the rocks already. There have even been rumors that it's over.

Ben Flajnik Shirtless Pic

The alleged photo, taken on February 18, shows Ben clearly kissing a woman ... and not in the way one kisses a friend or one's sister. At least we think not.

Ben and the brunette spent the evening walking his dog and made out in the cool San Francisco night. The two of them were all over each other, PDA style.

Supposedly. Radar is not exactly reliable, though Ben has said that being The Bachelor was the worst experience ever, and watching this season has to hurt.

Tonight, Courtney makes a surprise appearance on The Women Tell All special, during which she apparently acted annoyed and not very into Ben either.

We'll find out for sure in a matter of hours. In the meantime, who do you think Ben should choose on the finale one week from tonight, Lindzi or Courtney?

Ben Flajnik proposes to either Courtney Robertson or Lindzi Cox on the March 12 season finale of The Bachelor, to be followed by the After the Final Rose special.

Not a moment too soon for the star, who has been miserable throughout the filming and aftermath of the hit show and reportedly hated his reality TV experience.

According to sources, Ben taped the Women Tell All episode and was taken aback by all the bitterness, and overheard griping about the show during the taping.

“Ben was talking to the producers and when they asked if he would do the show again he said ‘No way! This was the worst experience of my life,’” an insider said.

Look at that Mop

According to the source, Ben wasn’t acting like a happy guy who is engaged to the love of his life (read our Bachelor spoilers page to learn who we think that is).

“He wasn’t animated or excited and the insider said it is because he totally regrets going on the show,” the source said. “Ben couldn’t hide how miserable he was."

"Everyone could see that he wasn’t happy.”

Ben Flajnik wasn’t the only person there in a bad mood. Courtney Robertson, the only finalist to go on ATFR in recent memory, was just as miserable looking.

It's been a rough couple of weeks for The Bachelor star Ben Flajnik, with millions of viewers hoping he doesn't choose Courtney Robertson as his fiancee on the March 12 season finale, and The Bachelor spoilers indicating ... well, read them.

Not only that, he's been accused of cheating on his fiancee.

Despite rumors that he's on the verge of being single again, and a tabloid cover claiming Flajnik was caught cheating, a rep for Ben says he was never unfaithful.

Ben Flajnik, Long Hair

Regarding Us Weekly's photo of Ben giving a kiss on the cheek to another woman, a rep for Ben says, "The photo is of two friends who have known each other for years and are all together in a social setting, surrounded by a group of friends."

"Ben Flajnik did not take any girls back to his apartment alone. It was a group setting every time. Ben has never cheated and does not condone cheating."

Another source close to Ben - who is barred from hanging out with the final rose winner, be it Lindzi Cox or Courtney Robertson - says he lives with two male roommates and the aforementioned girls may have been visiting them as well.

Ben is currently still engaged ... as far as we know.

Who should he pick on the season finale?
