The Bachelor‘s Ben Flajnik has already broken up with the woman he selected at the end of this season, which was taped a few months ago but will air in a few weeks. And here’s the shocking reason for that shocking news: he thinks he was “played” by the woman.
All this is according to an anonymously sourced report in Life & Style that might be sketchy if its contents weren’t so obvious and “duh”-inducing.
Someone “close to the winning woman” told the magazine that the couple “totally cooled off” and “often go five to six days without talking. He doesn’t call her, he doesn’t text. She keeps saying, ‘What kind of a fiancé is this?’ In her mind, he’s pretty much dumped her” and she “thinks Ben’s cheating on her.” Meanwhile, “an insider” says Ben only now realizes that his very, very serious proposal was to someone who wasn’t serious: “Ben started to feel like he got played.”
The best part of all of this is that it should give us a great After the Final Rose special, unless the couple or the producers decide to fake it for the sake of the show. But considering the editing (and the spoiler as to who wins), I think a mess of an ending would be just perfect.
