Who here is a fan of The Bachelor (or even The Bachelorette?). This one’s for you. Courtney Robertson, a Bachelor contestant (Season 16), has a new book out, I Didn’t Come Here To Make Friends. In it, she describes some very detailed behind-the-scenes (and in-front-of-the-scenes) moments from the show, including the time she had sex with The Bachelor, Ben Flajnik. Via Huffington Post:
To answer your question, yes. Ben and I did have sex in the ocean. On-camera. It was immediate but it was only for about 20 seconds and, um, it was just the tip.
She also talks about her time in “The Fantasy Suite”, the only time when the Bachelor/ette and their chosen one are left entirely alone, without cameras. Yup, sex went down. Without condoms (the producers didn’t leave them any, just “rose petals and candles”, though they do ask all the ladies if they’re on birth control):
Ten minutes after we were in the cottage, the camera crews, handlers, and producers scrammed, and we were completely alone for the first time ever. We immediately ripped each other’s clothes off and had intense, passionate sex on the couch in front of the fire. We did every position under the sun, but I believe I sealed the deal when we successfully completed the reverse cowgirl.
All to the sounds of Bon Iver, according to Ms. Robertson.
Robertson and Flajnik got engaged in the final episode, but broke up a few months later. Of his chosen bachelorette, Flajnik said, “She just had me fooled.”
What do you think of these revelations? Are you surprised?

We all know Bachelor star Juan Pablo Galavis is an absolute asshole, but thankfully another woman has finally told him this to his face. While he was hosting his Pool After Dark party in Atlantic City this weekend, he actually had a drink thrown in his face and was called a “fucking douchebag” before the woman was thrown out. YESSSSSSS, I live for this!
From US Weekly:
One girl did what many rejected Bachelor contestants could only dream of — she threw a drink in Juan Pablo Galavis‘ face. At the Pool After Dark event at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, Galavis got the shocking wake up call when a girl came up to him while he was sitting on a couch and threw a drink in his face.
“F–king douche bag!” she shouted, causing security and body guards to swarm the area and eventually escort the woman out.
The Bachelor didn’t let that ruin his evening, and he even spent some time with girlfriend Nikki Ferrell, who joined him in the club around 1 a.m.
“We have a long distance relationship,” Galavis told Us Weekly at the event. “But we are talking about many things.”
LOL to everything. So… we realize Nikki wants nothing to do with him, right? You’re “talking about many things”? Are those things also about what an absolute prick you are?
I wish we knew who this unnamed drink-throwing woman is. I’d love to shake her hand.

I don’t think anyone expects couples that meet on The Bachelor to stay together – and in fact, in the entire history of the series, I think only two of them have lasted out of about 20 – so it’s no surprise that walking penis Juan Pablo Galavis and his “eh, I guess so, I have nothing better to do” girlfriend Nikki Ferrell are seeking relationship counseling.
While I think we all know this isn’t going to end well, the WE TV Marriage Boot Camp counseling duo Jim and Elizabeth Carroll say they’re just getting ready to tie the knot!
From US Weekly:
“I think they have marriage on their minds, but I think what Juan did was a really, I mean it wasn’t a very romantic fairytale ending, but I think what he did was very wise in the fact that he said you know, ‘I want to go through conflicts with this girl. I want to do some problem solving, I want to see basically what the ugly side is before I jump out there and tell somebody I love them and just get married,’” Jim revealed to Us.
“A lot of people are saying that he’s commitment phobic or he’s not ready for commitment, but we were actually seeing a different side of him,” she continued. “Not only is he not commitment phobic, he is very serious about commitment that’s why he didn’t jump into the engagement right away, because it is very serious to him.”
“He is a very strong leader, he’s masculine, he doesn’t like to compromise a whole lot, and he’s got a good value system,” Jim continued. “Nikki is more nurturing, sympathetic, and she’s more feminine in her values. So when you put those two kind of people together the stronger one — like Juan Pablo — would tend to run over somebody like Nikki, if Nikki doesn’t have good boundaries.”
Listen, if Nikki had good boundaries, she’d never have signed up to appear on The Bachelor, and she certainly wouldn’t have taken the final rose from that loser. Also, I love that JP being a total dickhead translates into being a “strong leader” and “masculine” rather than exactly what he is: an insecure, narcissistic egomaniac.
Anyway, countdown to self-destruct on this one.
P.S. love in the photo above how Nikki seems to be pushing him away. I see the pain in homegirl’s eyes. RUN!

Of course you don’t. No one in the world wants to party with Juan Pablo Galavis from The Bachelor… and yet this dude thinks he’s the shit. He’s hosting his first party in Atlantic City at The Pool After Dark, and hilariously, he’s promoting it WITHOUT mentioning who in the hell he is/where he’s from (i.e. without any mention of the show) and thinking that people will care enough to come.
I don’t even want to think of the sad Jersey trash that will show up to that party – and I can say that because I was born there and grew up in the state, and also because anyone who thinks partying in AC with Juan Pablo from The Bachelor is a great idea is most definitely trash. But hey, if that’s you, own it!
TMZ has obtained the flier for Juan’s upcoming club appearance at The Pool After Dark in Atlantic City on March 29th — and NOWHERE on the flier does it mention “The Bachelor.”
Looking at it, you’d think Enrique Iglesias canceled and the club was forced to hire a cheap replacement.
And it’s no accident — sources tell us, Juan specifically instructed the casino NOT to associate him with “The Bachelor” in any press releases or fliers.
And his ludicrous demands didn’t end there — we’re told Juan agreed to a 15-person meet-and-greet on the condition no one asked about his reality show stint. Same rule goes for reporters looking for interviews.
Best part — he’s getting around $20,000.

Juan Pablo Galavis really took the cake as the WORST star of The Bachelor in history from the second his season began airing earlier this year. He’s just awful. He’s a misogynistic, egotistical, ignorant ass man who needs to seriously shut his mouth. Even the contestants originally competing for his love hated him, so that should tell you something.
While it’s pretty much universally agreed that Juan Pablo is a giant asshat, he’s still felt the need to write a blog for People in which he insists that he doesn’t like drama and wouldn’t come back to The Bachelor again if you paid him. Luckily, no one wants him there, so I think that works out best for all parties.
“When I was announced as The Bachelor, Chris Harrison said, ‘In the history of this show, no guy has made a greater impact with less screen time’ [during Desiree Hartsock's season of The Bachelorette]. Have you thought about why people apparently liked me at the time? Why I didn’t have that much screen time?
“Well, so you guys understand a little bit more, it is because of my honesty and that I don’t like drama at all – something that viewers appreciated from the little they saw of me on The Bachelorette… I believe my direct approach and honesty unfortunately ended up hurting some of the women and that was never my intention.
“I have always cared deeply about the women and have stayed true to myself and wanted to be respectful of them and not waste their time. I believe I have a different style than others who have been on this show. I will always be thankful for the opportunity, but if you asked me to do it again, I would definitely say, ‘HELLLLL NOOOOO’.”
LOL, why did people like you when you had so little screen time? Well, that’s your answer. You weren’t on screen enough to show any of your personality. I don’t know that everyone loved him insofar as they hadn’t seen him enough to learn how deplorable he is. Can this guy just disappear.

“Everyone on the show is just so over him and cannot wait for this season to be over,” a source connected with the dating competition series told us.
“His anti-gay comment happened the weekend of Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici’s wedding which completely overshadowed all the hard work everyone put in for it and practically ruined Sean and Catherine’s special weekend.”
The insider added that producers and crew members have never been so ready for a season of the Bachelor to end.
“It has not been anyone’s favorite, that’s for sure.”
Nor mine. I really think he’s the worst they’ve ever had. Note to producers: an accent is not a personality.
