If you don’t want to know who Ben is engaged to, and if you have been hiding out in a cave for the last few weeks so you haven’t been getting our winner spoilers, it’s time to go lie back down in your darkened room. Reading further will only distress you.
The rumors are apparently true. Ben Flajnik (28) is engaged to Courtney Roberston (also 28). Well at least that’s one thing they have in common.
Ben proposed to Courtney and gave her a stunning, custom-made Neil Lane engagement ring.
Of course she said yes. What did you expect?
It’s a beautiful, if showy ring. The main stone is cushion cut, surrounded by pave diamonds with a pave band.
Apparently Ben had it made specifically for Courtney. Oh no, and I just said it was “showy”! Surely not.
The wedding proposal happened in Switzerland, where the finale was taped.
So now the couple are engaged to be married. But despite ring rumors, this is a very different one to the one Courtney has been seen wearing. Perhaps it was just a slip on her part as her wedding ring finger felt bare.
Because apparently the Bachelor producers were so worried about her wearing the ring out in public and blowing the surprise (like we didn’t already do that) that they wouldn’t even let Courtney keep the ring. Presumably she gets it back after the Bachelor season 16 finale has aired.
To those of us watching The Bachelor, Courtney Robertson’s engagement is no surprise. Right from the premiere she has shown she will stop at nothing to hook her man. Even (especially?) if it meant alienating all the other women.
Since filming the finale, Courtney, a professional model, has been keeping a low profile in LA while Ben’s been doing promotional appearances for the show and striking major deals on behalf of his wine label, Envolve.
The two won’t be able to celebrate properly until the Bachelor season 16 finale airs in March. But congratulations to them both.
