Ben ‘feels like a fool for not seeing Courtney’s motives when they were so clear to everyone else,’ a source reveals.
Ben Flajnik reportedly got engaged to Courtney Robertson while filming the season finale of The Bachelor on Nov. 16 leaving fan favorite Lindzi Cox with a broken heart. But now, sources say that Ben is totally regretting his decision and that he feels like he should have picked another woman in the end.
“Ben admitted to a close friend: ‘I chose the wrong woman,’” a source tells Reality Weekly.
Ben was tricked into making his decision. “Ben knows he made a mistake,” shares the source. “He feels really played and is truly unhappy about the way things turned out.”
“Ben’s a romantic and was blinded by the situation,” the source explains. “Now, he’s realizing there were some seriously great girls on the show, but he completely blew it.”
After watching the show, Ben knows that Courtney played him. “He feels like a fool for not seeing Courtney’s motives when they were so clear to everyone else, but he’s also pretty hurt and insulted,” says the source. “He thought Courtney really had feelings for him and believed her when she said she wanted to be with him.”
Unfortunately Ben has to pretend that he’s in love until the season finale airs. Only then can he reveal the truth about his sad love story.
“He proposed, so he still has to behave like he’s madly in love with the winner,” says the source. “But he’s really starting to resent her.”
