'Bachelor's Lindzi Cox: I wish Courtney Robertson, Ben Flajnik well


By Reality TV World staff, 03/13/2012 

The Bachelor bachelorette Lindzi Cox doesn't harbor any harsh feelings towards Ben Flajnik, who rejected her in favor of Courtney Robertson during Monday night's broadcast of the ABC reality dating show's sixteenth-season finale.

"It was a good ending.  Like everything happens -- I'm happy for them, I'm really happy for me.  Like, I'm in a really good place," Cox told Jimmy Kimmel during a Monday night appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.  "I don't wish ill on them -- I wish the best for them!"

"[In] hindsight, he made his decision and I'm in a really good place and I'm happy how it ended up. I respect it."

During her appearance, Cox also told Kimmel that she had maintained a cordial relationship with Robertson -- who had privately bashed many of her fellow bachelorettes and pursued Flajnik aggressively -- when they had filmed The Bachelor last fall.

"I didn't dislike her," said Cox, a 27-year-old business development manager from Seattle, WA.

"I never saw that side of Courtney.  We weren't, you know, friends.  But we were cool with one another and I never... all the mean things she said about my friends on the show -- she called me boring, which I kind of have an issue with -- but I didn't see it until we all watched it on air."

Cox also admitted that knowing her The Bachelor experience had ended with Flajnik rejecting her made it difficult for her to watch the season as it aired.

"It was kind of hard to watch.  It was weird," she said.

However, she insisted she had managed to keep her fate secret from everyone -- including her mother and father.

"I didn't even tell my parents," Cox told Kimmel. "I'm a steel trap.  I think everyone else should sweat it out like I did."

Cox said she had tried to avoid "sweating out" her fate by examining The Bachelor host Chris Harrison's body language when she arrived for the season's final Rose Ceremony but was unsuccessful.

"I think in the moment, obviously, you're getting off this helicopter in Switzerland and maybe going to get proposed to, and maybe going to get dumped -- you have no idea.  I was looking at Chris Harrison's face to see [what Ben was going to do] -- I was studying, [but] that man has a poker face, let me tell you!"

Cox also dodged Kimmel's attempts to ask whether she had slept with Flajnik while filming the show.

"Did you make love to Ben during the course of the show?" he asked.

"Stay tuned!" she replied with a laugh and a wave of her arms.

"What's 'Stay tuned?' It's over!" Kimmel pressed.

"The Bachelor: After Hours! It's awkward," Cox said.

However, when asked, the bachelorette said she felt Flajnik did led her on somewhat while they were filming The Bachelor.

"Yeah, maybe a little bit," she told Kimmel.
