Ben Flajnik knows most of America doesn’t agree with his decision in picking Courtney Robertson! The Bachelor star tells People that strangers would walk up to him on the street and tell him how horrible Courtney was and not to pick her, and it was hard for him to handle at the time. Now, he reveals that he feels horrible for abandoning Courtney when she needed him most!

“I kind of ran away from it. It was cowardly.”

Ben says even his own family wasn’t very supportive of his choice!

“It was really difficult,” he says. “I had people coming up to me telling me she’s a bad person and I had to keep my mouth shut. Even my mom fed into the fodder a little bit. I didn’t have a lot of support.”

Do you think Ben made the wrong decision?
