Ben Flajnik has seen the pictures of his ex-fiancée with another Bachelor franchise alum and has to wonder: Who is that woman?
"I'm glad there is a new guy," he says, referring to Courtney Robertson's new relationship with Bachelorette hunk Arie Luyendyk. "I see certain things in the media and I wonder, did I ever really know her? I try to avoid it all together."
He continues, "I look at these staged photos of the two of them and I'm like: Why is she doing this? The girl that I loved never wanted to be famous and I look at these set-ups and I think I got out at the right time."

Dancing – and gaming? – with the stars?
Bristol Palin, Gilles Marini, Karina Smirnoff, Jef Holm, Holly Madison and more celebrated the launch of Ubisoft's Just Dance 4 at Lexington Social House in Hollywood on Tuesday.
Fresh off the set of Dancing with the Stars , Marini challenged fellow all-stars contestant Palin to a dance off, but she refused.
"No! He'll beat me! Gilles has the best moves!" she said.
Bachelorette winner Holm was more than up for a challenge! He took on both DWTS' Karina Smirnoff and Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson.
Although he attended the event without fiancé Emily Maynard, he assured everyone their relationship remains strong despite breakup rumors.
"Jef said he and Emily are extremely happy and the rumors are false," an onlooker said.
A pregnant Madison also got in on the fun and was overheard talking about possible baby names.
"The names she and boyfriend Pasquale Rotella are debating are definitely unconventional," a source says. "But they're straying away from anything trendy or common most people would choose."

He was so nervous about the elimination last week because I made him freak out. I felt bad about that. He just knew that I was nervous all day and he said, "Kym, I think we'll be fine," and I said, "Joey, we're fourth from the bottom. We could be gone."
