Are Ben and Courtney from “The Bachelor” 2012 just putting on an act for the media that they’re living in paradise? Ben Flajnik dumped Courtney Robertson when he realized how impossible she was with the other “Bachelor” contestants on the show. Over the weekend the pair was spotted together and a photo of them together was actually tweeted by Ben. Another photo was taken of them at the San Francisco Airport hugging and kissing.
When they appeared on “After the Final Rose” following the finale episode, Courtney admitted she had problems trusting Ben. He left her temporarily after watching some of her worst behavior on the show. She felt “abandoned” and often “cried” herself to sleep. A few weeks later Ben went back to Courtney. Although she took him back, things didn’t start out as well as they did originally.
Now that Ben and Courtney are officially engaged, are they trying to repair their damaged relationship or tarnished image in the eyes of the public? Courtney loves attention and Ben cares what people think despite what he says. He was perfectly honest about that on “The Bachelor” when he said his biggest fear is falling for a woman that rubs people the wrong way. His worst wish came true when the public disapproved of Courtney. No matter what Ben and Courtney do, it’ll be up for debate. It’s hard to tell if their PDA is for show or is genuine. Last season Brad Womack and Emily Maynard concealed the real story behind their rocky relationship as much as possible. Will this “Bachelor” couple be more successful and prove they’ve weathered the worst parts already?
