‘Bachelor’ Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson Split
Mostly everyone who saw the season of ‘Bachelor’ saw this coming as Ben Flajnik, who went on the 16th season of the hit TV reality show ‘The Bachelor’ went on looking for love. Well, it turns out that the guy was only looking for the true love for right now as he confirmed with InTouch that the two have split. Some fans are crushed to see the couple split already, but are not surprised at all.
Ben told the magazine, “After meeting over a year ago, we have decided to end our romantic relationship. The ups and downs weighed heavily on us both and ultimately we started to grow apart because of the distance, time apart, and our need to focus on our respective careers.” This, like almost all the Bachelors and Bachelorettes that go on the show, is the norm as year after year we find out that the couples that “find love” are not strong enough to survive.
The romantic relationship proved too hard for the couple as tabloid after tabloid reported trouble in paradise. Courtney, who fans of the show remember as the villain, showed true feelings on the Reunion Special of the show. However, apparently it wasn’t mutual. Quite possible that Ben saw an episode of ‘Bachelor Pad’ and thought, “Hey that could be me winning more fame and money”. Another thought that some people are throwing out there is that they haven’t been in the spotlight ever since Jef and Emily hit the scene as the new hot couple.

Either way, it is sad when you see another celebrity couple fails at what everyone knew was destined to fail to begin with. With the couple saying “It’s been a great ride” at the end of their interview, it clearly shows that they were both in this for the fame and not the love at all. Courtney made this clear to every girl on ‘Bachelor’ when she was competing for Ben’s “love” by telling them that she is going to win. Guess all that love and affection was an act.
However, there are those few, and I do say few, that felt that the couple deserved to be happy and are distraught that Ben and Courtney follow the 15 other Bachelors that never found true love on the show. Maybe it is time to change it to “Your 15 minutes of Fame” and drop the dating part.
