ABC has confirmed the controversial sixteenth-season The Bachelor bachelorette did participate in last week's taping of The Bachelor: The Women Tell All special, which the network will air Monday, March 5 at 8PM ET/PT.
"Courtney, who has been the woman viewers and the other bachelorettes have loved to hate all season, will return to have her chance to defend herself. Will she apologize for her behavior? Will she fight back and be her fiery self, or will viewers see another, softer side of her? It's an explosive reunion viewers won't want to miss," ABC teased in a Tuesday press release.
Robertson's The Women Tell All appearance will mark the first time in The Bachelor history that one of a season's final two bachelorettes has participated in the special.
During the broadcast, Ben Flajnik's other bachelorettes will question Robertson whether she was really in love with The Bachelor star or just playing a game to win. The 28-year-old model from Santa Monica, CA, will break down into tears in response to the women and attempt to defend herself against the attacks, insisting she was on the show for the right reasons and regretted some of her behavior.
"The women continue with the pack mentality that they're not buying it, so we take some lengths to fix that and try and see if we can resolve it. We also go back over some great characters because you forget that Courtney wasn't that big of a deal for the first half of the show," The Bachelor host Chris Harrison toldTV Guide about the special.
Some additional highlights of the special will include bachelorettes accusing Shea of shutting out potential friendships, Levey calling out Brittney Schreiner for why she quit the show, former fifteenth-season The Bachelor bachelorette Shawntel Newton surprising the women with how badly she felt bullied when she tried to fight for Flajnik's heart just like the rest of them, and Jennifer Fritsch wondering what The Bachelor star saw in Shea over her.
"Blakeley took some more heat, we talk to Jenna, Jennifer, who was a heavy front-runner and then just left, and [Jamie Otis], who made her awkward exit more awkward," Harrison told TV Guide.
"He also had been waiting to apologize to [Casey Shteamer] because that had been weighing on him considerably. He felt like he had handled that poorly. The women were definitely harsh on him. They were in a mood and they were feisty and ready to go, so he caught his fair share of flak."
The Women Tell All will also feature Sterling confronting Flajnik about the reasons behind her elimination, O'Brien demanding to know why Flajnik sent her home, Otis making Flajnik an offer for the future, and a sneak peek at the season finale -- which will air in two weeks and feature Flajnik making a decision between bachelorettes Robertson and Lindzi Cox.
"I'm nervous to see all of the women I've said goodbye to so far on the Women Tell All episode," Flajnik wrote on his People blog Tuesday. About The Author:Elizabeth Kwiatkowski
