Now we have seen Ben Flajnik propose to Courtney Robertson, it’s time to look back at how the couple have got along since the Bachelor season 16 finale was filmed. In the After The Final Rose show, Ben addressed the rumors that he cheated on Courtney and that they have broken up.
Check out what happened below.
Chris Harrison knows Courtney Robertson’s victory on The Bachelor has caused a stir. He asks that we withhold judgment until we hear what Ben and Courtney have to say. Well in After The Final Rose, we found out.
Ben is still in love with Courtney.
When he was asked about how Courtney behaved on the show, Ben was obviously uncomfortable but said simply that’s not the Courtney he knows. He said there was not much he could do since the other girls did not give him concrete examples of her bad behavior. He wished she could have been more gracious and it made it harder on him in those moments.
Then came something of a revelation…unless you’ve been keeping up with our breakup spoilers. Ben admitted that he and Courtney did not talk while the show aired and they even broke up for awhile. But after some discussion, they apparently reunited.
Next, Chris asked Ben about the tabloids’ claim that he had cheated. He swore on his father’s grave that he never cheated on Courtney and he never kissed those women, who are just his friends.
As we suspected, Courtney trying on wedding dresses was just to screw with everyone. That prompted Chris to say that they are weird and perfect for each other.
And then Ben was gone, to give Courtney some time to talk to Chris alone. She came out to some weak applause and quite a few boos. That made her admit that she should have been more careful in how she behaved.
Chris then cut straight to the chase and asked Courtney about the time she and Ben broke up for a while. She said that things were really good for awhile and they even spent Thanksgiving together. But then a big storm rolled in and he didn’t even send her a card for Valentine’s Day. She admitted that she felt abandoned by Ben when she needed him most.
And get this; Courtney tearfully admitted that she isn’t sure if she and Ben are still together. But she wants them to work things out.
Things seemed friendly as Chris and Courtney were reunited on stage. He hugged and kissed Courtney as he sat down. According to him, they are engaged and in a good place. They touched a bit more on what happened and how abandoned Courtney felt so she is struggling to trust him now.
Ben admitted he messed up in making Courtney feel bad after the show finished filming but promises to be there for her from now on. Ben took the engagement ring back from Chris and gave it back to Courtney, sealing the promise with a kiss.
