    The Bachelor Women Tell All Special - Ben Flajnik's Take : People.com

    Ben: Courtney Showed 'Softer, Sweeter Side' on Women Tell All

    By Ben Flajnik


    Oh, The Bachelor's "Women Tell All" special. At the risk of sounding harsh, I can't say I was looking forward to seeing all the women I had sent home over the past few weeks. I can't imagine it's any guy's idea of a fun day to have all of his ex girlfriends in one room, ready to ask questions. Fortunately, the women took it pretty easy on me and I would like to thank them for that. After watching this episode, and not having been a part of the majority of taping that evening, I was surprised to see so many of the women still going at one another. I would have thought that after a few months of not being around each other they would start to bond over the experience they had all just shared. I was wrong again. Maybe it still felt fresh after watching the season on TV. And there is something that happens when you go on this show that unlocks your emotions that I can attest to.

    I know that Blakely took a lot of heat from these women, but I want to say again that I respected the fact that she stood on her own and focused on our relationship and didn't let the women affect her as much as most people would have thought. As far as Samantha goes, I wish I could say something nice but honestly, I think you can all see why she went home earlier than expected based on the way she spoke to the women. I'll leave it at that.

    Poor Shawntel. I still admire the fact that she followed her heart and came back to see me. The women were so cruel to her and my heart still goes out to her. I won't deny that there might have been a connection with her but it was all about the trust I had built with the women I had at that point and couldn't break it. In her defense, I knew her better at that point than any other woman, but it was circumstantial and I had to ultimately say goodbye.

    Watching Nicki and Kacie B. take the stage made me smile. I have nothing but respect for these two women and wish nothing for the best for them for the rest of their lives. I think that I got to know them both so well that there will always be a mutual respect between us. Saying goodbye to both Nicki and Kacie was easily the hardest decision I made all season. I actually don't know which goodbye was harder. It still breaks my heart to watch these women go through the pain I caused them by ending our relationships. I feel so lucky to have gotten to date them. They are women of a high caliber and I truly appreciate the honesty and vulnerability they showed me throughout our time together. Ugh. Still tough.

    Moving on to Courtney. Oh Courtney. I don't think I even know where to begin with this one. Believe me, I appreciate what she did by coming on "Women Tell All" and apologizing for her actions and it seemed genuine to me. I'm glad there was some sort of resolution with the women because it needed to happen. To see an emotional side of this woman was a good thing and it makes her feel like she is human, and a softer, sweeter side is shown. It's a side that I saw throughout the journey that no one else did.

    I guess that's it for now. One more week until the show is over and my time as the Bachelor is up. What a ride.

    How nice for her to feel like she is human... the line implies she is not.

    He's not really defending Courtney here, he's defending his choice to take her all the way to the final two. Even though she isn't human.

    "...this woman...."

    Odd way to refer to her.

    I thought that too. Really interesting given that she had a lot of screen time at the WTA. Hmmmm....

    I wonder if it is because she showed she is well and truly over him and honestly, probably wondered what she was fighting over in the first place. I think Ben focused on the two who still managed to feed his ego even after being dumped rather than the ones that clearly were happy to be out of it.

    I dont think she is completely over him. She's not all weepy But there's an interview online, and she didnt like the way things were left with Ben, who she said she cared for very much

    He didnt mention Jamie, who gave him an open invitation if things dont work out.

    Yep, I guess that Emily didn't take it easy enough on Ben, and she flat out said that he was not the kind of man that she would want to take home to meet her parents. The only two that he praised, other than Courtney, continued to feed his gigantic ego.

    That was shudder-worthy. Way to make yourself look even more desperate and pathetic on national television.
