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.”
