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?

Everyone is just assuming Courtney Robertson wins The Bachelor.

Heck, Us Weekly's new cover story blatantly states that Ben Flajnik proposed to the model - a claim that we won't find out for sure until Monday, March 12.

The Bachelor spoilers have a lot to say on that very subject, but because they have been wrong before, you have to treat this as what it is: Pure speculation.

Not that it's hard to believe. According to Us, Flajnik gets down on one knee on the season finale, but has since soured on his final rose recipient/fiancee.

Ben Flajnik Us Cover

The celebrity news magazine claims that:

  • Ben was "caught" with three girls in one weekend ... which likely means he was hanging out with other women and photographed with them. Seeing that Ben's unable to go near Courtney (or Lindzi Cox), that's not a shock.
  • He's embarrassed by Courtney Robertson (that part we can believe, given that he's gotten to watch the entire season of The Bachelor along with us).
  • Courtney cries on the Women Tell All special (that too).

Us' new issue, out today, will surely reveal more vague, unsourced details of his alleged transgressions, but until then, tell us: Who you THINK he SHOULD pick?

Despite Nicki's and Kacie B.'s best efforts on last night's episode, Courtney Robertson won a spot on The Bachelor season finale alongside Lindzi Cox.

Who will he propose to March 12, Lindzi or Courtney? Does the former have any chance against the Black Widow, or is she destined for heartbreak?

The Bachelor spoilers page on THG has all the latest on that subject, but judging by comments Ben himself made in his weekly blog, it's a toss-up.

The rose-giver told People the following:

Lindzi Cox and Ben Flajnik

On Lindzi: "She is always up for anything, and that is a really attractive quality. Speaking of attractive, sometimes I'm awestruck when looking at Lindzi."

"I find her to be so beautiful, even when I put her in a helmet and harness and dangle her from a rope. Lindzi also started to open up to me even more."

"I know it's hard for her and she likes to go for the joke before the serious moment, but I also want to be married to someone who I can have those serious discussions with and a woman who will tell me how she really feels."

"The last few weeks, Lindzi has been doing that."

"For the first time, I truly feel I am in love with this woman and was looking forward to dinner and seeing if she was feeling the same way."

After emotional hometown dates, The Bachelor jetted off to Switzerland for the penultimate episode of the season (the Women Tell All special is next week).

Nicki Sterling, Lindzi Cox and Courtney Robertson vied for the final two roses doled out by Ben Flajnik ... as did another familiar face in a non-shocking return.

Could Kacie Boguskie cajole her way back into the mix?

  • Lindzi Cox Picture
  • Ben Flajnik Picture
  • Courtney Robertson Picture

Clearly contrived time-filling plot twists aside, Courtney preemptively shifted into damage control mode and Lindzi made her case as the season's dark horse.

Yes, we went with a horse joke there. Again. Too easy.

Who made the final two heading into the March 12 finale? Were The Bachelor spoilers right, or did Ben pull a surprise? Here's THG's +/- Bachelor recap:

Nicki Sterling, the dark horse of the competition, seems like a very cool girl, but it also seems like she's trying a bit too hard to force the issue. Minus 5.

Not in like an aggressive Courtney way, so Plus 8, but sort of in the sense that she's trying to force feelings and a stronger connection in a limited time.

Does Chris Harrison not sign the fantasy suite card anymore? Minus 10.

Monday on The Bachelor, Courtney Robertson is on the hot seat ... again. Only this time, it's to assuage Ben Flajnik, not just to start drama with other girls.

Regarding her treatment of the other women, which has obviously been awful (to say the least) this winter, how does the 28-year-old model respond?

By lying and playing the victim, of course:

Feeling a bit desperate, Courtney tries to pull Ben aside for some one-on-one time to come clean about her relationship with the other women in the house ... sort of.

"I tried really hard to be nice with [the other women], but that's a really unique situation for me," she says in the sneak preview clip seen above.

"I'd say something and they'd jump on me. I had my guard up."

Little does Ben Flajnik know, however, Robertson said more than a few hurtful things. Some of which can be seen in the 53-minute highlight reel below:

Is Kacie Boguskie on her way back to The Bachelor, the very next episode after she was sent packing in a surprising move by Ben Flajnik? It looks very likely.

In the promo below, someone surprises Ben in his Swiss hotel room. Shocker! But in a previous promo, he's seen talking to Kacie, in a hotel room, in the same clothes.

So ... there's that.

Also, it's straight out of The Bachelor playbook. Bring the fan favorite back for one last hurrah, raising expectations that just maybe, they'll get another shot.

Will this change the outcome, assuming it is Kacie B. (skip ahead to the 6-7 minute mark)? From what we've read (see link below) ... no. But you never know!

Ben narrows the field from three to two Monday, with the Women Tell All special airing the following Monday, March 5, and the season finale Monday, March 12.

For all the details on how it turns out (we think), read The Bachelor spoilers page we put together and update every week. You may not like what you read ...

Ben Flajnik sent fan favorite Kacie Boguskie packing on Monday's hometown dates episode of The Bachelor, the third-to-last installment of the ABC show's season.

In a surprise, Courtney Robertson, Nicki Sterling and Lindzi Cox all moved on (see The Bachelor spoilers for scoop on the next two weeks) while Kacie was left in tears.

In his weekly blog on People, Ben reflects on his travels to Clarksville, Tenn., Kacie's hometown, and the turning point when the romance began to go downhill fast.

"The day portion of our date went swimmingly as usual, but as Kacie started to talk about her dad, I got nervous," Ben writes. "I started to think he wouldn't approve of me being so different than a man he would normally want his daughter to date."

"The evening was difficult for me. Kacie's family was really nice and welcoming, but every time I had a conversation with one of her family members, I felt like I was disappointing them. Kacie was raised with more traditional values than I was."

"I felt like that would get between us in regards to her family. I thought about it so much that it started getting in the way of my feelings growing stronger for her."
