Chris Harrison defends Courtney’s stunt but admits there is one attribute about Courtney that drives him nuts. Find out what it is.
During the Jan. 30 episode of The Bachelor, cunning Courtney Robertson convinced Ben Flajnik to take his clothes off and go skinny dipping with her in Puerto Rico. While fans may be outraged by Courtney’s manipulations, Bachelor host Chris Harrison admires her for going after what she wants.
“We obviously have to discuss Courtney and what she pulled this week,” Chris writes in his personal Entertainment Weekly blog. “Love her or hate her, you have to give the girl credit for doing what it takes to find time with Ben and win his heart.”
Chris thinks that Courtney wouldn’t be ridiculed so much if she weren’t so obnoxious during her interviews. “I wonder if the things Courtney does would upset everybody as much if she didn’t follow it up with some of the stuff she says,” he says.
“When the good times were over she said, ‘I feel like I’m winning,'” Chris recalls. “Now, beyond the fact that the whole ‘winning’ thing wasn’t very cute or funny when a messed-up Charlie Sheen said it, the fact that she keeps saying she’s winning is worrisome.”
BFFs — do you think Courtney was right to break the rules and surprise Ben in the middle of the night to go on a skinny dipping adventure?
