In his first personal blog, Ben shares why he gave the first impression rose to Lindzi Cox — and which other ladies stood out to him during his first night as ‘The Bachelor.’
Ben Flajnik began his journey to find love during the season premiere of The Bachelor on Jan. 2. In a new personal blog on People.com, Ben gushes about why he’s quite taken by some of his favorite ladies. He also reveals why he decided to give Lindzi Cox his first impression rose.
“When I decided who was going to get the first impression rose I knew I was going to have a lot of glaring eyes on my back as I left the main room,” Ben writes in his People.com blog. “Lindzi had such a good energy about her that I decided she would be the perfect choice for the first impression rose. Let’s be honest too … she’s a beautiful, confident woman who rode in on a horse!”
Ben also fell for Nicki Sterling. “I particularly remember my conversation with Nicki being very natural,” he shares. “It was moments such as this one where I found myself thinking that being The Bachelor was the right decision.”
One moment in particular stood out in Ben’s memory. “Sheryl the grandma was also a highlight of my night,” he admits. “I am close with my grandma and found it to be very endearing that Brittney would bring hers along.”
“I also really enjoyed talking to Rachel [Truehart] and Courtney [Robertson],” he adds. “They both seemed like they had good families back home, and had experienced life a bit more than some of the other women.”
Ben also hints that his journey as The Bachelor has a happy ending. “It took me a few months to decide whether or not I wanted to try and find love this way again, and after thinking long and hard about it, I ultimately thought it would be another positive experience,” he says. “Guess you’ll have to wait and see just how positive it turns out to be.”
