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.

Courtney Robertson allegedly appears on The Bachelor: Women Tell All special this season, according to reports. Why is this noteworthy for Bachelor fans?

Because the Women Tell All episode, which airs March 5, but was taped Friday in L.A., has never featured either of the girls in the following week's finale.

Does that mean Courtney Robertson gets bounced this Monday? Or did the show make a special exception to bring out a finalist because, well, it's her?

Getting Faux Hitched

According to insiders and The Bachelor spoilers we have read, analyzed, maintained and posted throughout this winter ... they made an exception for her.

Courtney has been the center of so much controversy all season long - she's pretty much the reason for the show at this point - they felt they had to.

It's true. Giving Court a chance to square off with the other women (or vice versa) could make for amazing television. They probably hate her more now!

Back when all the drama was taking place during filming, they hadn't even seen her confessionals, with some of the best quotes (see highlight reel below).

Specifically, Court's main nemesis, Emily O'Brien, should give her an earful.

The Bachelor returns tomorrow night as Robertson, Lindzi Cox and Nicki Sterling vie for the final two spots in the March 12 season finale. Stay tuned.

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:

The Bachelor contestant Courtney Robertson may not be a fan favorite.

That's the understatement of all time, actually, but her ex-boyfriend, Cavan Clark says that in real life, she's different from how she appears on the series.

Cavan says that "unlike what you see on the show, she's actually a nice girl, and getting a bad rap" based on the show's editing and media coverage.

Not sure how a 53-minute trash talk montage can be explained away, but good to hear! Seriously though. 53 minutes, not including Monday's episode:

"I still keep in touch with Courtney," he adds. "We dated, and after it ended she went on The Bachelor. Life happens; people fall in love and people break up."

The two met and fell in love while Courtney Robertson, 28, was modeling for one of the fashion lines Cavan Clark, a 36-year-old photographer, shoots for.

He does say Courtney is doing everything in her power to get the final rose ... and reading between the lines, that she might not be motivated by love.

Former Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert, who famously rejected Ben Flajnik, is trying to give Courtney Robertson the benefit of the doubt. She really is.

But while Ash admits she didn't find Court as despicable as usual on this week's episode of The Bachelor, she's totally calling her out for one thing:

Ripping off her so-called heartfelt vows from Sex and the City!

"First of all, I do have to say that Courtney's ceremony was a little bit of a rip-off idea - because we did that on my season, with William," recalls Hebert.

"And she blatantly stole her vows from Sex and the City!"

In their faux wedding, Courtney memorably told Ben, "I am looking for love. Real love. Passionate, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love."

Sarah Jessica Parker said, "I am someone who is looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love."

Remember? To Mikhail Baryshnikov, from the series finale? When Carrie breaks it off with the Russian? Right before Big tracks her down in Paris?

Anyway, Ashley Hebert is like the rest of us - flummoxed by Courtney.

There are few guarantees in life, but on The Bachelor, there are several:

  • The word "hometown" will be dropped around 173 times per season.
  • People will somehow say "Ben and I's relationship" almost as often.
  • There will be increasing drama with each passing week, and Courtney Robertson and/or the people writing for Courtney Robertson will stir that ish up.

Monday was no exception as Courtney, Nicky Sterling, Kacie Boguskie and Lindzi Cox took Ben Flajnik to meet their parents in four awkward, contrived dates.

Courtney and Ben Kiss

Court brought her aggressive game this week, just when we thought she couldn't make us any more uncomfortable. Could the other girls hold a candle to her?

Who made the final three? Were The Bachelor spoilers right, or did Ben pull a surprise? Hint: Someone's dad prompted a breakup many did not see coming.

Here's THG's official +/- Bachelor recap:

Lindzi Cox kicked things off at home in Ocala, Fla., where Ben became only the second guy she's ever brought home. This girl has been seriously lacking for screen time since the premiere considering how clearly cool she is. Plus 23.

They chatted about the first man she brought home who she said later broke her heart. Plus 5, not for breaking Lindz's heart, but because it's the right time in one's courtship to start bringing things up ... not on the first or second date.

It's not known if there is a sex tape featuring Courtney Robertson from The Bachelor. But if there is, Vivid Entertainment would like to buy it. For $1 million.

Heck, they'd also pay her that to make one from scratch.

"There is no doubt that Courtney is the hottest girl ever on [the show]," Steve Hirsch, CEO / founder of Vivid and apparently not a longtime fan of the show, says.

"We would definitely like to buy an existing tape, or if she prefers, produce one with her ... this tape could definitely be worth as much as $1 million," he adds.

Seriously?! Maybe if it were auto-tuned like this viral hit:

Vivid is famous for releasing such material, including one starring Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, and of course the infamous Kim Kardashian sex tape.

For now, Courtney Robertson, a 28-year-old brunette who's like, a model, is still in the running for Ben Flajnik's heart on the hit ABC (sur)reality series.

Ben will meet her parents on tonight's hometown date episode. He will also say the word "hometown" and "Courtney and I's" relationship about 84 times.

Will Courtney last beyond this evening's installment? The Bachelor spoilers we've pulled together shed some light on that subject, so read if you dare!

Courtney Robertson isn't exactly known for subtlety. Or class. Or sanity.

Still, The Bachelor bad girl ups the ante even more than usual on next week's hometown date with Ben Flajnik, planning a "big surprise" for the hunk.

"I'm going to tell him I love him, and doing it in a very special way," Courtney Robertson teases in a sneak peek from Monday night's crucial episode.

"We're at this place where I've always wanted to get married and I've got a little wedding planned ... This is the best way I can think of to show Ben how I feel about him."

Courtney/The Bachelor producers really know how to pick 'em:

Armed with two notepads, Court suggest they "could write some vows" for one another. "Do you have rings, too?" Ben Flajnik asks, likely only half-kidding.

"Maybe I do," Robertson teases. "Maybe I do." Girl is full-on crazy.

The Bachelor spoilers we've posted all season long have been accurate, so visit that page for a look at how (we think) the rest of the season plays out.

Then follow the jump for sneak peeks of Ben's hometown dates with the other three girls, Kacie Boguskie, Lindzi Cox and Nicki Sterling ...

In a new blog post, Ben Flajnik details how his feelings for Courtney Robertson are strong, despite things the other women on The Bachelor have said about her.

Try as they might, as we saw on last night's episode, Courtney's rivals have failed in their efforts to paint Courtney in a negative light. At least in Ben's eyes.

Flajnik writes in his weekly People blog that while The Bachelor "may not have been the best environment" for Robertson (ya think?), their connection is for real.

Ugh.

Ben Flajnik With Courtney Robertson

Of Courtney Robertson, Ben writes, "Here I was, amongst the clouds, with such an amazing woman. I'd never felt so close to my father and to my happiness."

"To share this moment with Courtney was an exciting experience, and I knew if we moved forward that we would always be able to share this moment."

"That evening, however, things got a little strange. It's a tough thing, I understand, for the women to find a fine line between getting along with the other women and realizing it's difficult to be friends with people dating the people you are dating."

"I've been there, and it's tough. I know it's been hard for Courtney, and to be honest, I'm not sure this was the best environment for her. But, just as I tell the women to take our relationships individually, I try to do the same."

"My feelings for Courtney are strong and I don't want to let external forces get in the way.  As the rose ceremony approached, I had a lot going through my head."
