What happened behind the scenes during the taping of last night’s The Bachelor reunion was far more interesting than what happened on it, including a producers’ spoiler-filled coaching of Courtney Robertson and Ben Flajnik complaining about having to appear on the show.
The Los Angeles Times reports from behind the scenes, highlighting five things, including Chris Harrison’s illness, which required him to break right after bringing Courtney on stage, and he had to lie down and have an IV. Ben told some people backstage, “One more of these [expletive] things and I’m done. I have so many better things to do with my life.” And while Chris was backstage, a producer consoled and coached Courtney, talking about her like of American Spirits cigarettes and, when she told him, “I don’t know if I can show that emotion again,” he told her, “You have to. This is for you. This is for you and Ben.”
