Ben: Courtney Showed 'Softer, Sweeter Side' on Women Tell All

Originally posted 03/06/2012 07:15AM

Oh, The Bachelor's "Women Tell All" special. At the risk of sounding harsh, I can't say I was looking forward to seeing all the women I had sent home over the past few weeks. I can't imagine it's any guy's idea of a fun day to have all of his ex girlfriends in one room, ready to ask questions.

Fortunately, the women took it pretty easy on me and I would like to thank them for that.

After watching this episode, and not having been a part of the majority of taping that evening, I was surprised to see so many of the women still going at one another. I would have thought that after a few months of not being around each other they would start to bond over the experience they had all just shared. I was wrong again.

The Bachelor's Nicki Is Still Not Over Ben

The Bachelor's Nicki Sterling Is Still Not Over Ben Flajnik

Nicki Sterling was sent home to Texas after falling in love – and spending the night in the fantasy suite – with The Bachelor's Ben Flajnik.

Calling from the Lone Star State this week, the 26-year-old dental hygienist says she's "still in the process of completely getting over everything," and has plenty to say about skinny-dipping, her elimination and the final two.

You seemed shocked not to get a rose.
I was blindsided. Each time we were together, I felt more confident. It's hard to say who I thought was going home. I just did not think it would be me.

Courtney Robertson Issues a Tearful Apology to Bachelor Contestants

Originally posted 03/02/2012 04:30PM

Before the rose comes the thorns.

Of all the words fans have used to describe ever-controversial Bachelor frontrunner Courtney Robertson, "remorseful" doesn't come to mind.

One of Ben Flajnik's favorites from the start, the model has been far from kind to the other women on the show, collecting enemies as fast as she's racked up the roses.

But on a preview of Monday night's special episode, "The Women Tell All," Robertson tearfully apologizes to ousted contestant Blakeley Shea.

Bachelor's Kacie: I Had to Tell Ben that Courtney Is a Manipulator

Originally posted 03/02/2012 12:30PM

With her Southern charm, bright eyes and big heart, it was easy to see why everyone fell in love with administrative assistant Kacie Bogoskie – everyone, that is, except perhaps The Bachelor's Ben Flajnik.

Speaking with reporters about the hometown date culture clash, her dramatic alpine reappearance in Switzerland and whether she thinks Ben could be happy with her former competitor Courtney Robertson, the eliminated Tennessee baton twirler, 24, had this to say.

Courtney Robertson, the controversial finalist on The Bachelor who was spotted trying on wedding dresses in Beverly Hills Wednesday, has surprised more than just fans by her actions.

Nicki Sterling, the ousted third finalist on the show (Lindzi Cox is still in the running), is positively shocked by the photos – and the implication that Robertson, 28, a season-long source of drama will get Ben Flajnik's final rose.

"I'd have to chew on that for a little while," Sterling tells PEOPLE. "I don't even know. I'm kind of shocked right now. I'm sorry, wow, my mouth is open right now."

Going to the chapel?

Courtney Robertson, a controversial finalist on The Bachelor, was spotted trying on wedding dresses at a Mark Zunino bridal store in Beverly Hills on Wednesday.

Ben Flajnik, who handed out roses to Courtney and Lindzi Cox in Switzerland on Monday's episode, has said he feels "really connected" to the model, 28, despite warnings from the show's other women that she is more interested in "winning" than finding love.

Bachelor Ben: Why 'I Truly Felt in Love' with Lindzi

The Bachelor's Ben Flajnik 'Truly Felt in Love' with Lindzi Cox

Originally posted 02/28/2012 01:15PM

Saying goodbye to Kacie last week on The Bachelor really solidified how difficult this journey has been, and I knew it was only going to continue to get harder. I was really looking forward to heading back out of the country to one of my favorite places, Switzerland, to try and reset my mind and focus on the three incredible women who are left.

My first date was with Nicki, and I was really happy to see her. I loved getting to know her family, and after leaving Fort Worth, Texas, I had a great feeling about the two of us being together at the end of this. Our date together was hands down one of the best dates I had during this entire journey.

First off, the helicopter ride was insane! Secondly, I couldn't have spent it with a better person! Nicki, "the dark horse," constantly surprised me, and I still can't describe how extremely comfortable I felt around her.

With three women left vying for his affections, The Bachelor Ben Flajnik flew to Switzerland in Monday night's episode for a series of cozy, cold weather dates.

The final three – Courtney, Lindzi and Nicki – spent quality "fantasy suite" time with Ben before he narrowed the field down to two. And the episode was not without a good old-fashioned reality show surprise.

So which two women remain in the running … and who surprised Ben with a return engagement? Caution: SPOILERS AHEAD …

Which of The Bachelor's Final Three Women Is Best for Ben?

The Bachelor: Who Is Best for Ben Flajnik?

Originally posted 02/27/2012 05:30PM

Last week on The Bachelor, Ben Flajnik sent home fan favorite Kacie B., narrowing the field in his soul-mate search to three.

The first rose went to Santa Monica-based model Courtney Robertson, 28. While her ice queen attitude, snarky comments and overt sexuality have not endeared her to the other women, Ben, 28, has been a fan from the get-go.

He constantly comments on her good looks, her body and her ability to articulate how she feels. She got along with his dog Scotch, is adventurous and shared a secret skinny-dip in Puerto Rico. But she has a temper, an extreme desire to "win" the show and may be there only to further her 15 minutes, despite throwing a faux wedding to declare her love during her Arizona hometown date.

The Bachelor's Lindzi: Ben Must Love Horses

Originally posted 02/21/2012 04:45PM

Bachelor finalist Lindzi Cox wants to make one thing clear: any future with Ben Flajnik must include horses.

The 27-year-old business development manager and lifelong equestrian, who was one of three ladies to receive a rose Monday night, made sure she communicated that message on her hometown date Monday in Ocala, Fla.

"Horses have been in my life since before I was born – I rode before I walked," Cox said. "So if Ben wants to end up with me, horses are always going to be a part of our life together."
