Tonight on The Bachelor season 16 we will have reached the Women Tell All special and tonight’s promises to be highly emotionally charged. Producers on the show have upped the ante by uncharacteristically featuring Courtney Robertson, one of the remaining two contenders. So she is there to hear exactly what the rejected women think of her. And it makes her cry!
As fans of ABC’s The Bachelor 2012 know, tonight (Monday) the Women Tell All special will air. This episode typically includes the season’s most dramatic, beloved or controversial figures, except for the final two. However, this time ABC has changed their strategy. Since Courtney Robertson has been by far the most divisive figure of the season, they brought her on for the March 5 special despite the fact she is one of the final two.
I can’t wait to tune in and watch the brown smelly stuff hit the fan!
“I take it all back” says a remorseful Courtney Robertson on tonight’s show, when the model was confronted with her behavior on the show.
Tonight, we will see that eliminated contestant Blakeley Shea had a serious bone to pick with 28-year-old Courtney. Blakely demanded an apology for Courtney calling her a “stripper,” and that’s when Courtney was reduced to tears.
“I just wish you would retract all the things you said about me,” VIP cocktail waitress Blakely says.
Courtney is clearly embarrassed and gazes off into the middle distance but Blakely will not back down. Eventually, Courtney covers her mouth and blinks back tears, saying,
“I’m sorry. I take it all back.”
But how sincere was the apology? She even parroted back the words that Blakely told her to use. Then she threw her head back to stem any more tears.
Nicki Sterling doesn’t think Courtney’s apology to Ben was sincere. “All of a sudden she had a change of heart when she realized, ‘Oh it’s down to the final few and my chances of winning might be hindered by the fact of how horribly I’ve treated people,’ and then all of a sudden she flips it and feels bad — I don’t buy that for a second,” Nicki notes.
Courtney Robertson will compete alongside Lindzi Cox for the final rose and the chance to be Ben’s future wife in the show’s season finale, which airs on ABC on March 12.
Taping of the Women Tell All special apparently took around six hours and Courtney was in the hot seat for most of that time.
Emily O’Brien was, as fans would expect, also apparently quite fired up by Robertson’s presence, and she and Courtney got into it a bit. Courtney says she was hurt that Emily called her “autistic” during the taping, and at one point Emily ended up in tears.
Courtney Robertson is also said to have also been confronted by Samantha Levey but Jenna Burke apparently gave Courtney a hug and said she felt bad for her.
Ben Flajnik also takes a turn in the hot seat tonight as well, and according to sources, he is “clearly overwhelmed” by the experience. He appears to be “going through the motions and saying what he had been told to say.” But will that really surprise any of us?
It doesn’t sound very much like any of the rejected girls get closure from tonight’s Women Tell All special but of course there are also some laughs to look forward to along the way.
Normally shy and reserved Jamie Otis jokes to Ben,
“I don’t know if you’re single or not, but if you are, I’m still available!”
