Lindzi Cox acts like she got away with something.

The Bachelor runner-up, who Ben Flajnik rejected in favor of MODEL Courtney Robertson on this month's season finale, is all smiles these days, as if she dodged a bullet.

When she departed, Lindz did so with an interesting parting shot, telling Ben that he could call her if (and when) everything unraveled with finacee Courtney.

She meant it as a joke, though, and from the looks of it, she's content to move on and forget, more or less, that anything ever happened with Ben.

Jilted as she may be, the Seattle resident who rode in on a horse has ridden off into the sunset on a high note, and is about as happy as a girl can be.

No bad blood toward Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson, no ill will toward the show, no wondering what might have been ... and no looking back.

Safe to say Lindzi Cox is the real winner here?

Lindzi Cox feels no animosity toward Ben Flajnik for rejecting her on The Bachelor finale Monday. That said, she did get in a nice dig at Courtney Robertson.

"She was nude a lot," Cox said today on Good Morning America.

"Maybe if I went skinny-dipping I wouldn't be here with you."

Despite being sent home at the final rose ceremony (below), the 27-year-old development manager says of Ben Flajnik, "I wish him nothing but the best."

"At the end of the day, yeah, maybe it was really tough on me for a little bit, but he made a decision, it was what's best for him, and I respect that."

"When I watch it on TV, I could see why he's with [Courtney Robertson]," she added. "They really did have a solid connection throughout."

The jilted Bachelor contestant didn't appear on the After the Rose special Monday, as she felt Ben and Court had too many bigger issues to address.

"Ben and Courtney came out and it was pretty emotional ... I think it was tough for them. I'm in a good place. I don't really need closure," Cox said.

"I think Ben has bigger things to worry about... I'm in a good place. I learned a lot about the experience. It's awesome. I would totally go do it again."

Will Ben and Courtney last?

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.

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!

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.

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."
