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:

On Monday's episode of The Bachelor, fans will watch Ben Flajnik propose to either Lindzi Cox or Courtney Robertson to conclude a most controversial season.

If you want to know who he supposedly gives his final rose to, read The Bachelor spoilers page at THG ... if you dare. Either way, it'll have people buzzing.

Interestingly, Courtney and Lindzi, whose personalities and styles are polar opposites, selected similar dresses for the final rose ceremony in Switzerland.

On, right, we kind of saw that publicity stunt already.

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."

It's normally a chance for the rejected bachelorettes to confront the man that sent them packing, but it was primarily Courtney Robertson in the hot seat and under fire on The Bachelor: Women Tell All episode Monday night.

The women wasted no time in criticizing Robertson, calling her a villain, a phony, a cruel seductress, a two-faced fame-seeker and pretty much an awful human being overall.

And that was all before she even took the stage! Then it got worse:

Not only was Court slammed - politely but forcefully - by third and fourth place finishers Nicki Sterling and Kacie Boguskie (probably the two nicest people ever), her former rival Emily O'Brien absolutely owned her ass Monday.

Crocodile tears or not, Courtney was definitely crying up there.

Surprisingly (or not, for a master manipulator), she chose to apologize, saying, "I'm sorry. I take it all back. Looking back, I'm really sorry I hurt all of your feelings."

"You may say it's not genuine but it is," she said. Mmm hmm.

The Bachelor himself, Ben Flajnik, was only featured at the very end, starting off his not-even-10-minute segment by saying "welcome to my nightmare."

Doesn't exactly bode well for his chances with Courtney, or Lindzi. Whomever Ben picks on the season finale next week (see our Bachelor spoilers page for more detail on that controversial topic), he's not looking too pleased with life now.

You tell us: Courtney Robertson on The Bachelor ...

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!

Ben Flajnik Photograph

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.

Nicki Sterling was sent home to Texas after falling in love on The Bachelor.

While Lindzi Cox and Courtney Robertson made it to the finale, Nicki and Kacie Boguskie were given the pink slip despite strong connections with Ben Flajnik.

The 26-year-old dental hygienist says she's "still in the process of getting over it," and has plenty to say about skinny-dipping, her elimination and the final two.

Excerpts from Nicki Sterling's recent interview with People below:

Nicki Sterling and Ben Flajnik

On not getting a rose: "I was blindsided. Each time we were together, I felt more confident. It's hard to say who I thought was going home, [but not] me."

On what went wrong: "Hearing him refer to me as the "dark horse" let me know he enjoyed my company but didn't have a strong connection until the end."

On Chris Harrison calling their relationship "immature": "I love Chris but I don't agree. Our relationship was mature. We talked about important things."

"We had deep talks. I wasn't one to beg for reassurance. I tried to make our moments both meaningful and playful. Those two things are important in a relationship."

On getting closure: "I heard what I needed to get closure. I didn't need to hear nice things. I'm a firm believer that everything in life happens for a reason."

Kacie Boguskie did what she (or the producers) had to do.

That's how she explains traveling all the way to Switzerland just to "warn" Ben Flajnik about Courtney Robertson on last week's episode of The Bachelor.

With Southern charm, bright eyes and a big heart, it was easy to see why so many people fell in love with Kacie B. and were rooting for her over Court.

Alas, Ben was not one of those people.

  • Kacie Boguskie Picture
  • Courtney Robertson Picture

Speaking with reporters about her hometown date gone awry, her trip to Europe and if she thinks Ben Flajnik and his fiancee will last, she had this to say:

On her elimination: "I definitely didn't think it was me. When it got down to one rose, I thought that Nicki would be going home. I was shocked."

On why she went to Switzerland after getting axed: "Initially, I was not going there in search of a second chance. I really wanted closure."

"I had to make my peace about Courtney, because I care. Of course, there was a little part of me that hoped he'd be like, "I made a mistake. Stay."

On why she cares so much about Courtney: "I have a problem with somebody who has two sides, because I don't know which is really you."

"She was manipulating – I'm not sure who she manipulated more, us or him."

Courtney Robertson, the controversial finalist on The Bachelor, has shocked more than just fans by trying on wedding dresses in Beverly Hills on Wednesday.

Nicki Sterling, who was eliminated this week, is beside herself as well.

Sterling is "positively shocked" by the photos, and the implication that Robertson, a season-long source of Bachelor drama will get Ben Flajnik's final rose.

"I'd have to chew on that for a while," Sterling tells People. "I don't even know. I'm kind of shocked right now. I'm sorry, wow, my mouth is open right now."

  • Nicky Sterling Picture
  • Courtney Robertson Picture

There's always the possibility that the attention-loving Courtney Robertson was merely putting on a publicity stunt of sorts. Or maybe she was "modeling"!

"I would hope and pray that is not the case," Sterling says of a possible stunt by Court. "There are no words to describe how horrible that would be."

"I mean, somebody's heart is on the line."

"Not just somebody's, but Ben who I care deeply about. I cannot believe anybody - even as manipulative as Courtney - would take it that far. I would hope not."

Only time (and perhaps some more hinting on Court's part, or The Bachelor spoilers if you're into that sort of thing and believe them) will tell.

Didn't see this coming: The Bachelor's polarizing finalist, Courtney Robertson, was seen trying on wedding dresses at a Mark Zunino bridal store in Beverly Hills.

Maybe a dress is just a dress? Or a cry for attention? Or a carefully coordinated, hilarious staged photo op to quell rumors that she wins and they already split?

Who knows, but Ben Flajnik selected Courtney and Lindzi Cox as his final two on this Monday's episode, with Robertson the odds-on favorite to win on March 12.

You can read The Bachelor spoilers we've posted for what we think goes down, but Ben's infatuation with her (and these pics) speak for themselves:

  • Hot Courtney Robertson Picture
  • Courtney Robertson, Wedding Dress
  • Courtney Robertson Wedding Dress Shopping

Whether she's skinny-dipping, saying "winning" every five seconds, name-dropping her profession ("modeling!") or staging a mock wedding on her hometown date in Arizona, Courtney Robertson has been as aggressive as she is reviled.

Maybe she's just "modeling" right here?

Lindzi Cox fans sure hope so. After the penultimate episode of the season, Ben said he felt "truly felt in love" with her, so perhaps there's reason for optimism.

Perhaps. Or maybe not. Doubtful.

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?
