'Bachelor' Ben Flajnik: Is He As Heartless As Courtney Robertson?

Ben Flajnik Courtney Robertson

Ben seemed ‘on the defense’ when the women confronted him about Courtney during the filming of ‘The Women Tell All,’ a source reveals.

Ben Flajnik is about to come face-to-face with all of the women that he dumped on The Bachelor. During The Bachelor: The Women Tell All on March 5, Ben’s exes confront Ben about Courtney Robertson. But instead of thanking the women for their warnings about Courtney’s lies, Ben seems to not even care. 

“Ben wasn’t empathetic in the least,” a witness who was at the filming for the special tells Us Weekly. “You would think Ben would be like ‘Hey girls, I did not realize what Courtney was like, but after watching the show now, thank you for warning me.’ Never once. He was on the defense as soon as he came out — in a cold hearted way.”

A voiceover in a preview video says: “Tonight, The Bachelor will face his exes — and the bachelorette everyone loves to hate will face them all.”

Ben doesn’t seem that excited about the evening, saying “Welcome to my nightmare!”

And Courtney is about to receive the backlash that many fans think she deserves for all of her evil tricks. “She’s a liar,” cries on woman. “Malicious,” adds another. “Does she have a heart?” questions Emily O’Brien.

“Courtney is here … ” warns host Chris Harrison.

I must admit that I am a romantic so I have watched this show for the last few years. I enjoy the comedy/tragedy of it all. Increasingly it has become soft porn and sinister in my view and actually makes a mockery of love and marriage. It does anything but promote love between people. It’s false advertising at it’s best. It’s reached the UGLY point for me. I think I would rather spend time with the people around me than watch this rotting compost TV. If we really need to watch people behaving this badly in order to make ourselves feel OK well………think again.

Courtney was chosen to be on the show because of her conniving and deceitful nature. It makes good TV. She was encouraged all along to be the “bad” girl. She didn’t want friendships with the other girls, nor did she want Ben. She got what she wanted: attention. You’ll be looking for her ads in magazines and on television. She got noticed. Nothing else could have gotten her that kind of exposure! She was the villain by design. The show might have been too vanilla if Courtney hadn’t been on it. Hope the other girls realize that Ben isn’t worth it and never was…
The 80’s called: They want their hairstyle back…

From the beginning Courtney was the one to watch, not only because she was pretty but because she was entertaining and fascinating. As her love for Ben became real, we saw her desire to grow and become a better person. This is something that love can do. I’m hoping Ben appreciated this transforming kind of love and what was happening between them and allows himself to grow as a person as well. What a pleasant surprise it will be if we see Ben stand by you and face whatever comes together. Also, allowing this love to mature him as a man and to grow as a person. Now that would be a fairytale ending. Truthfully, I found many of those other women annoying and hard to watch, especially the ones who in their own minds thought they were so good. On the reunion show “they” turned out to be the very ones sitting in the seat of the scornful. Encouraging each other as they joined forces against her with the most vengeful self-righteous finger pointing I’ve yet to see on the show. They did the very same thing they were so hard on her about – not accepting an apology. We need wisdom in life to protect ourselves from this kind of ridicule and I’m sure she has learned some valuable life lessons to avoid this in the future. I hope she finds a special man.

This whole season was just sickening. Ben had the ego trip of his life; the opportunity of his life with so many quality women telling him they had fallen in love with him. He had GREAT choices! But I knew by one of the early shows what he was going to do. He said to his family/friend on the phone “One of them is a MODEL!”. It was obvious that he was so thrilled that he might could get a “model” & that was more important to him than any real love connection. He is as shallow as Courtney; refused to believe that she was playing him, just went totally for the ego rush. I agree that the other girls were lucky in the end that he didn’t pick them…he’s not in it for the long haul at all. When Courtney dumps him to continue her jet-set life modeling…does he really think she will give that up to settle in some small town & be his wifey? What a fool! But, he will have gotten what he was really after…the ego rush.
I just hope that he learns something from the experience, but I doubt it. There is a reason he’s single, he’s just a player.

Hello – you nailed it. I have not cared for Ben much at all and I think he and Courtney sort of deserve each other – but neither is ready to put anyone else ahead of their own egos at this point so it probably won’t last long at all.

Well well no-one is saying a thing about poor Lindzi, she is such a good,beautiful, person. I know Ben made the wrong decision, he’ll end up alone again, naturaly. He and Courtney are so self centered and egotistic they deserve each other.And they both kind of cheated a few times.Although they probly won’t last 6 months after the show.They love their own selves so much, they can’t possibly love each other.They are both ugly ,not by looks. Most of Ben’s dates he planned were stuff he wanted to do. It wasn’t romantic swimming with sharks, or jumping down a cliff when your scared of hieghts,or climbing a bridge. Kodos to Lindzi,and the other girls for putting up with his stupid dates. Thank your lucky stars your rid of him, you all are wonderful women and deserve way better.Prince Charming will come!!!!!!!

Ben told us in the beginning the kind of women he had dated. It is no surprise he fell for Courtney.. He also said he wanted a marriage like his parents but his actions proved that to be untrue as he rejected the really nice girls. Courtney has a huge unfounded ego. She seems to resent any interaction with other women. Just watch her face whenever she is not the center of male attention. She gets that ugly pursed lip pout on her face that shows her conceit. I do not think she has an attractive face; she is ugly on the inside. I hope she does some soul searching and makes some changes in her life otherwise I fear she is in for lots of heartache.

Personally, watching The Bachelor this season I was so UNIMPRESSED with Ben. He deserves Courtney… I think he was as heartless and narcissistic as Courtney. He could have cared less for the other girls and their feelings … the 24 girls who didn’t end up with Ben are lucky!! He’s not even cute and he reminds me of a frat boy who never grew up…As my husband put it, He’s a boy, not a man. I hope he and Courtney end up together…they can have a miserable, self-absorbed life together.

If Courtney has apologized for her behavior it’s not because she means it. It’s because she is recieving the consequences and doesn’t like them. She wants people to stop judging her for what she did. If she never recieved all this backlash, trust me this girl would not be apologizing. She has only done so because of her own selfish needs and how the tabloids have been treating her. This is by no means a genuine apology, it’s a selfish one.

Ben is naive and childish and can’t read through woman’s mind. Courtney is ridiculous behaving the way she did thinking she is best of all but really she doesn’t worth a penny. She is pretending to be a “sweet girl” but pretentiousness comes out and her true colors show.

What a shame for you, courtney, you are a total loser..

Courtney is immature, heartless, spoiled, accustomed to getting her way. Must be the center of attention as can be seen on ‘ women tell all.’. Ben is getting just what he deserves. Courtney will treat his mother and sister the same as the other women.

I have never responded to anything like this before, but I am very disapointed in the way this season went. Already to leak out that his picks courtney. How stupid. There were so many girls this season that would so nice. He had such a great choice in women. To pick the one he did I am so disapointed in him. I thought he was so nice of a guy and smart, but all he must want is sex. My co workers say you should call the show one night stand. I always watch the show and I really wish the relationships would work. Only Trista and Jason worked. I feel the ratings will go down if this keeps happening. I am angry with this season.Courtney was not a nice person and now she tried to act like she is, and Ben who I really liked, how could he be so stupid. This is dumb for me to respond but why bother with the show. Why also would you bring back Emily. She can find a man on her own. This will be another joke!!!!

i have more faith when a woman is making the decisions than a man- so emily might do all right. the men just can’t think beyond sex. even jason who was a cut about most, and had a son to consider (not just his own personal sex wishes), was all flustered and picked the woman he wanted to bed over the one his heart fell for. fortunately he snapped to and changed his mind post-final rose, but still… it’s pathetic when the men are in charge. i don’t watch anymore, but maybe i’ll think about watching for emily.

If the show is truly about finding “true love” the producers and Chris Harrison should have intervened. The fact that they don’t only means they are after the drama and not the love. So predictable and sad….

Are you kidding me ABC? You are playing on people’s stupidity. Proud of yourselves? News alert: People are wising up to this unethical joke of a love story. I’ll tune into NBC. You think your crowd is going to keep watching? I honestly think we’ve had enough. News alert: most of america really does believe in love, but we also have morals.
