Ben and Courtney of “The Bachelor” are attempting to break free of the glaring cameras and publicity that has followed them since the show ended. Over the weekend Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson were photographed in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico enjoying the sun. Courtney looked uber skinny in her two-piece bikini as she and her fiance spent some time by the pool of their resort.
Sources have spoken to a few magazines with one saying Courtney wants “to save this relationship” and another one adding the couple wanted to get away where hopefully nobody would recognize them. Their main concern is working on their relationship and not focus on the cameras.
Things have been easier on “The Bachelor” pair since the show has ended. Viewers aren’t reminded every Monday night of a snot Courtney was capable of acting like. In an interview last week, Courtney admitted things are far better now that the show is behind them. People are even offering words of encouragement now. She has a long ways to go in being accepted by “Bachelor” fans. She can’t take away the past and what’s already been done, but there might be hope if she and Ben can make this engagement work. The model admitted she’s found a good friend in Ben’s sister, Julia. The two have become close and Courtney gets a great deal of support from her.
Small-term goals for Ben and Courtney are for her to move away from Los Angeles and head to San Francisco. Obviously she wants to be closer to Ben so they progress on their life together.
Will Ben and Courtney be one of “The Bachelor” couples who find success long after the show? Time will tell, but they aren’t giving up.
