Courtney Robertson continues to stir up drama on The Bachelor and her controversial tactics have landed her on two different tabloid covers this week.

Probably her true goal all along. "Winning!"

Speculation is running rampant about how long Courtney lasts (The Bachelor spoilers we've posted offer more on that topic), but one thing is clear:

She is the star of the show this season, for better or worse.

  • Courtney the Man-Eater
  • Ben Flajnik TRICKED!

In their new issues, Us Weekly and In Touch have tag-teamed Courtney Robertson (they're probably not the first ... winning!!!) with the following accusations:

  • She was dating an old rich guy while on the show!
  • There's a secret sex tape that could RUIN her!
  • Her attraction to Ben Flajnik is a complete lie!
  • She's even worse than you think!

Okay, at least one of those is BS. No way could she be worse than we - and many other Bachelor fans, based on the majority comments we've read on THG - think.

Yes, we realize it's a TV show and they edit to great the best narrative that gets people talking. But do you honestly believe none of this is Court's real personality?

Tell us: What's your take on Courtney Robertson?

The Bachelor star Ben Flajnik is blogging all about the events of this week's episode, which saw tensions rise on the dreaded two-on-one date and beyond.

Flajnik sure had a lot on his plate Monday, with a nude Courtney Robertson, a bawling Blakeley Shea and a two-timing Casey Shteamer, among other issues:

Excerpts from his take on the episode below:

Ben Flajnik: Bachelor Pic

On Kacie B.: "I sometimes worried that we would run out of things to talk about, but we were able to "survive" on an island together while keeping a smile on our faces, then learn more meaningful things about one another."

"I really appreciated Kacie opening up the way she did. It takes guts to tell someone the things you're not proud of, and I respect her even more for turning it into a positive."

On Courtney: "Group dates have always been difficult for me, but they've gotten harder as time goes on and as feelings have developed. It's not easy balancing relationships while trying to make everyone feel special."

That's why I was drawn to [Courtney Robertson] during the daytime portion of the group date - she made it a point to spend time with me. I always knew how she felt and she made sure to let me know that she was thinking of me."

The black widow lurks. It waits. It watches. It stalks its prey.

Then when the time is right, it strikes, launching a methodical offensive, weaving a web of deceit and seduction that Ben Flajnik is powerless to resist.

That's Courtney Robertson in a nutshell. With only five other women remaining on The Bachelor after last night's episode, can she be stopped in time?

It looks like Nicki Sterling, Kacie Boguskie, Lindzi Cox, Rachel Trueheart and Emily O'Brien try, if nothing else, staging an intervention of sorts next week.

Will it work? That's anyone's guess. But skip ahead to the promo at the end of the rose ceremony in the clip below (around 4:00) and see the promo.

Four episodes remain this season, with two women getting the pink slip next Monday night in the final installment before the coveted hometown dates.

Then it's down to four, then three, then two for the finale March 5. Read our Bachelor spoilers page for scoop on who makes it - we think - if you dare.

Ben Flajnik may be the titular star of the ABC reality franchise, but this season of The Bachelor has been without a doubt the season of Courtney Robertson.

Week after week, the girl continues to cement her reputation as the best Bachelor villain of all time, while redefining the standards of human terribleness.

Okay, sorry. That was a bit harsh. Well, maybe.

Skinny-dipping is a tough act to follow, but Court is a tough girl to hold back when it comes to showing off her body. She's, like, a model after all y'know.

There was also a pretty big scandal involving Samantha, as The Bachelor spoilers (and the promos, and Chris Harrison) told us. How it that play out?

Join us for THG's official +/- Bachelor recap of week six ...

Casey Shteamer

Kacie B. got the first one-on-one date this season and after earning her second this week, looks more and more like a contender. She's nice. Plus 10.

Ben says this date - "surviving on a desert island" will show how they might work together in the future. Minus 60 for that recycled Bachelor platitude.

“Watching Ben cut into a coconut … it’s so hot,” Kacie says. Mmm. Plus 5.

She shares her high school history of anorexia and bulimia with Ben. Heavy topic and maybe too soon, but honest, courageous and forthright. Plus 12.

In the dreaded two-on-one date, Blakeley and Rachel go salsa dancing. Blakely pulls out all the tricks ... and we mean implied sexual favors. Plus 9.

Then she shows Ben a scrapbook of their love story, which is hilarious and kind of stalker-like as she never had real one-on-one time with Ben. Minus 11.

Rachel Trueheart (that's her name) gets the rose. Plus 8.

The venerable host-pimp of ABC's guilty pleasure reality franchise says he deeply regrets what unfolded on Ashley Hebert's season of The Bachelorette.

Chris Harrison learned a key lesson from the Bentley Williams debacle and that's why he's intervening in a big way on The Bachelor tomorrow night.

Bentley's deceit about his intentions, not to mention his being a complete d!ck, eventually led to heartbreak for Ash. Chris takes part of the blame.

"I didn't go far enough in talking to [Ashley Hebert] about Bentley," he says. "I warned her and I took some steps. But I don't think I went far enough."

Chris Harrison Batting

Sometimes a pimp's gotta step up to the plate and reprimand his employees.

Tomorrow night, Harrison takes firmer steps to prevent a repeat with current Bachelor star Ben Flajnik, as teased in a preview of this week's episode (below).

Harrison arrives in Panama City, Panama, where Ben is wooing the remaining women, to drop a bomb that evidently leaves Casey Shteamer bawling.

"There's something that happens with Ben in Panama, where I got to kind of, you know, rectify that situation and do the right thing," Harrison said.

"In that speech to him and the girl that's involved, I actually said, you know what, I made a mistake [last] season, so I'm not going to do it here."

The Bachelor spoilers we've read have hinted at this for weeks now, but it looks like the show is full-on admitting it early. Its Facebook page teases:

"Soon it will be revealed that one bachelorette still has a boyfriend ... Who do you think it is?" We're gonna guess Casey S. Just a thought ...

"My mojo is risin' and all these bitches betta look out!" - Courtney Robertson

As if she weren't public enemy #1 already, Courtney's skinny-dipping escapades on The Bachelor last night elevated her villain status to new heights/depths.

Will the overshadowed other women rise up against her? And will it matter?

As Court continues to run roughshod over the rest of the competition for Bachelor Ben Flajnik, the rest of the house has had about all that it can take of her.

Emily's efforts to show that Ben's being played (Ellen DeGeneres agrees) have fallen on deaf ears so far. Will the women stand a better chance collectively?

If nothing else, it looks like they're gonna try. Watch the promo for next week's episode and beyond (around the six minute mark) in the video below:

Last week, Courtney Robertson cemented her reputation as The Bachelor villain of the year, manipulating Ben, telling off the other girls and saying "winning" a lot.

Tonight, she took it to a whole new level.

In Puerto Rico for a little spring training, only one team would emerge as winners, and only one woman would be the MVP ... and we don't mean Lindzi Cox. Sadly.

The Bachelor spoilers we've posted so far this season actually didn't give away too much about this episode ... beyond what the promos already told us, at least.

How did it all turn out? Who stood with roses at the end and whose rear end was blurred? Please, join us for THG's official +/- Bachelor recap of week five ...

No Crying in Baseball

NO CRYING IN BASEBALL: These players have seen happier moments.

A group date started with an INTENSE game of baseball in Roberto Clemente Stadium, with the winning team scoring a date with Ben, and the losing team sent home. Sporting events for roses? What is this, Bachelor Pad? Plus 10.

Plus 15 for the ladies' "uniforms," too.

Blakeley Shea's got game! Plus 9.

Courtney had a great zinger/compliment: “Blakeley is like a champion out there. Who knew that strippers could play baseball?” Plus 11, because VIP Cocktail Waitress Blakeley totally does look like prime Tiger Woods mistress material.

After a stinging defeat, Blakeley tells her fallen cohorts, “I busted my ass out there because I hoped you guys wanted it just as bad.” Inspiring, Coach. Plus 6.

Monica Spannbauer, The Bachelor's most recent castoff, says star Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson are a perfect match. Aww. So nice to say, right?

No. She means that quite negatively.

"I absolutely think she's wrong for Ben, but the more I watch - obviously I don't get to see everything that happens - they deserve each other," she said.

Courtney Robertson, who's like a model, has made a nasty habit of hating on other girls while pursuing Ben. And saying "winning" like a complete tool.

  • Monica Spannbauer Picture
  • Courtney Robertson Picture

Monica Spannbauer, who ruffled a few feathers herself in The Bachelor house, says she had no beef with Court personally ... but is still not a fan. At all.

"Courtney isn't a very nice person and I think she deserves everything that's coming toward her," Monica said, ominously. "Hands down, I think she's somebody different around other women and somebody different around a man."

Spannbauer also had a nice parting shot for Ben Flajnik.

"Courtney is really manipulative and good at what she does. Clearly that's the kind of girl Ben's looking for ... If they end up together, they deserve each other, because if he's that shallow and she's that manipulative, then they totally work."

Meow!! You tell us ... Courtney Robertson:

Blame it on editing if you like, but in just four episodes, Courtney Robertson has already cemented her place as one of the great villains in the history of The Bachelor.

She's just getting started, too.

Next week features the already-infamous scene in which Courtney takes things to new depths in her quest to claim Ben's heart (and other body parts) for her own.

Even Ellen told him he's being played, but when a model strips down and goes skinny dipping in the ocean with you, rational thoughts may be on the back burner.

Can she be stopped before it's too late?

Watch Ben Fljanik and Courtney Robertson's nude moment in the promo for Monday's episode of The Bachelor (after this week's DRAMATIC rose ceremony) below:

The Bachelor's Courtney Robertson ...

Courtney Robertson has Ben Flajnik wrapped around her finger on The Bachelor, according to viewer Ellen DeGeneres, who bluntly told Ben as much today.

If you missed Monday's episode, you missed a good two hours of drama, tears and Courtney pursing her lips and doing whatever it takes to get her way.

Ellen seemed to catch on, and she had a few words for Ben Flajnik regarding that model from Santa Monica who doesn't seem to be popular with fans:

"She manipulated you to try and get that rose. She said, 'Oh, I don't know how I feel.' Then you went and got the rose and gave it to her. That was not right."

Judging by the applause, the audience agreed with Ellen, who added:

"She may be a lovely person and you're probably engaged to her, but the thing is, the way that it was edited she came off not nice, and I could be wrong."

"I know it's not fair to judge someone like that, but she was just playing you... man. She was playing you. Saying all the things you wanted to hear."

Damn, son. Ben can't reveal much, of course, but did admit it would have been nice to have a mole telling him what went on in the mansion. Ellen's response:

"All right, I'm going to find you a nice girl because that didn't work."

As for her comment that Ben is "probably engaged to her," see our Bachelor spoilers page for what sources are saying about the season's endgame.
