Ben Flajnik on Ex Courtney Robertson’s Rebound With Arie Luyendyk Jr: “I’m Glad There’s a New Guy”
Courtney Robertson and Ben Flajnik are over — which means she's free to get her Miss Independent on! Courtney and her Bachelor beau have only been dunzo for a month, and now she's moved on to the beefy arms of Bachelorette runner-up Arie Luyendyk, Jr., and Ben is less than impressed.
"I'm glad there is a new guy," he tells People. "I see certain things in the media and I wonder, did I ever really know her? I try to avoid it altogether."
It's hard to avoid magazine racks (not to mention the Internet), so Ben has most definitely seen the recent pics of Courtney and Arie canoodling. "I look at these staged photos of the two of them and I'm like: Why is she doing this?" he says. "The girl that I loved never wanted to be famous and I look at these set-ups and I think I got out at the right time."
Way harsh, Ben. Courtney certainly moved on quickly, but so what? She's an easy, breezy, beautiful cover girl, and she can cuddle up to whoever she wants! Plus, it's not like Ben's is taking a break from dating — just the opposite! "I do miss the constant interaction and companionship," he says. "I'm open to dating for sure."
Up until now, Ben's been busy distracting himself with "the harvest" (his words), but it looks like Courtney's new slice of man-pie is getting Benny's rebound motor running!
