Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson have broken up after being engaged for 11 months. Court and Ben looked happy together as recently as August while strolling on Baker Beach in San Francisco.
Robertson is one of the most controversial contestants in Bachelor history. Ben gave her a 3-carat Neil Lane ring. She was spotted trying on wedding gowns before The Bachelor finale aired. She went skinny dipping with Ben early on in the competition.B
Ben was rumored to be cheating on Courtney months ago and Courtney has a history of hooking up with famous men for fame. This was never going to work. I hope the African-Americans suing for discrimination on The Bachelor win. This franchise is trash but I am looking forward to Ashley Hebert and JP's wedding in December.

Ryan Lochte is dumb, but not so dumb that he doesn't realize the time to cash in on his Olympic success is now. Ryan can't rely on the kind of big money endorsement deals enjoyed by Michael Phelps, so he has to be a bit more creative with his revenue streams: like asking for three quarters of a mil to bang an endless parade of gold-diggers on national TV.
Yes, Ryan reportedly wants to be the next Bachelor and a starring role on the inexplicably popular ABC series could land him a huge paycheck. Ryan's people have decided to start negotiations at $750,000 for a single season.
Of course, there's no way that Ryan will actually meet his future wife on the show, so this could turn into a multi-season gig for the gold medalist. Hell, he could turn this into a reality empire, a la Flavor Flav. It's good that Ryan has set his sights so low in terms of post-Olympic stardom. If you start off doing reality shows and 90210 guest spots, you won't find yourself disappointed if you eventually end up shilling for Subway,

ABC has only had Caucasian Bachelors and Bachelorettes and then the network was hit with a discrimination lawsuit after two African-American men say they weren’t considered viable candidates during the audition process. So what’s a thriving network and a successful franchise to do? Bring in the Latino so that you can say you aren’t racist. This is exactly the same as the bigots who “aren’t racist” because they have “a black friend!”
Life & Style magazine is reporting that Roberto Martinez, Ali Fedotowsky‘s ex-fiance from The Bachelorette season 6 will be the Season 17 Bachelor!
An insider confessed: “He’s already signed the contract. They chose him because he’s very likable.”
Roberto was not chosen because he’s “very likable,” he was chosen because he isn’t white! It’s that simple! And he isn’t black, which is even better! ABC execs didn’t have to sh!t their pants by going as far as casting an African-American and now they’re going to try to prove that they weren’t discriminating when the timing of this is so blatantly obvious!
Bachelor and Bachelorette stars are typically chosen because they’re runners-up from the preceding season, not from years ago, e.g., Ben Flajnik was plucked from Ashley Hebert’s season. This is pathetic.
DO YOU THINK ROBERTO WOULD MAKE A GOOD BACHELOR?

Chris Harrison, host of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad, has split from his wife of nearly two decades! Gwen and Chris have decided to part ways. The couple has two children together, Joshua, 9, and Taylor. 7.
Does this mean Chris will be the next “Bachelor”? That would be so epic!
The couple released a joint statement today claiming that they decided to split “after much heartfelt consideration.”
“Though we have made this incredibly difficult decision to separate, our love and mutual respect remain, and we look forward to sharing in the lives of our wonderful children.”
Gwen says that Chris is “an amazing father.” He coaches both of his children’s soccer teams.
Chris is 40 and he’s been married for 18 years so that means that he got together with his wife when he was 26 years old! I’m kidding. He married his wife when he was 24. Bad jokes aside, not only was Chris young when he got hitched, he wasn’t famous and it’s hard for most men to resist being lusted after by two women, let alone a few million! ABC should let Chris be The Bachelor. I just wanna see him tell the stand-in host, “I already know this is the final rose a*shole! I can count, bitch!”

This is America, people are racist. There’s no surprise from me here! But two male African-Americans are suing mad after they were slighted during The Bachelor auditions. Christopher Johnson, an aspiring NFL player, and Nathaniel Claybrooks attended a casting call in Nashville for the popular dating show.
When Christopher arrived, a producer asked him what he was doing there!
Christopher and Nathaniel were taken to the side of the room and excluded from the audition process. Neither was called back and they believe that’s because they’re black. ABC, Warner Horizon Television, Next Entertainment, NZK Productions and creator Mike Fleiss will all be sued in a class action lawsuit the plaintiffs are filing in court today.
The only thing I’m super pissed about is that I didn’t audition for The Bachelorette so that I could sue, too! There are still plenty of shows that wouldn’t cast me because I’m African-American, so all hope is not lost! On a serious note, The Bachelor producers had this coming. They’ve had like 15 years to cast someone other than white men and women for “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” but they didn’t care to and they didn’t even hide their prejudice when the plaintiffs tried out for the show. That’s not how you properly discriminate! You act like people who don’t have a chance actually do and then you shred their resume once they exit the room.

Well, it looks like our worst fears have been confirmed. Ben Flajnik has proven that he's every bit as stupid as the audience suspected by selecting manipulative fame whore Courtney Robertson as the winner for the 2012 season of The Bachelor.
Ben sent a heartbroken Lindsey Cox packing and proposed to Courtney while millions of viewers let out a frustrated "WTF?!" during Monday's season finale. But there's nothing shocking about the fact that a scheming model was able to win a dumb guy's heart and connive her way to victory. The real shock came in the After the Final Rose ceremony in which Courtney revealed that despite their "trust issues" she and Ben have somehow stayed together in the several months since the show finished taping.
No word on when Courtney and Ben plan walk down the aisle, but if and when they do, expect a two-hour ABC special in which Courtney gloats about her victory, does an epic control-freak Bridezilla routine, and then leaves dude as soon as the spotlight dims like a Z-list Kim Kardashian.

Well, we’re one step closer to the Courtney Robertson, Ben Flajnik engagement that everyone knows is coming. Ben made his second-to-last elimination on last night’s episode of The Bachelor, bringing him one step closer to putting a ring on maneater Courtney, who’s been manipulating him since the season premiere.
Nicki Sterling got the boot last night, and Lindzi Cox could still pull off on an upset, but as always, Courtney made all the right moves to ensure she’d claim the big prize of major national media exposure Ben’s hand in marriage.
Ben’s been warned about Courtney’s conniving ways by everyone from other contestants to Ellen DeGeneres, but she’s handled the criticisms deftly and being cautioned away seems to have only pushed him closer to the show’s resident villain. We’re giving 30-1 odds on Courtney, if anyone wants to put some money on it. Sorry, Lindz. There are plenty of fish in the sea.

Courtney Robertson, Ben Flajnik of The Bachelor’s fiance, has a sex tape out there, allegedly. Vivid is so interested in the possible tape that they’re willing to pay seven figures for it. Vivid Founder Steve Hirsch is an idiot, saying, “There is no doubt that Courtney is the hottest girl ever on [the show].” Well it’s obvious he hasn’t watched the show!
Steve continued: “We would definitely like to buy an existing tape, or if she prefers, produce one with her … this tape could definitely be worth as much as $1 million.”
Sounds like an offer Ben would definitely want his fiance to sign up for!
Meanwhile, Ben will meet Courtney’s parents on tonight’s hometown date episode. The suspense.
