Bachelor Nation Roundup: Courtney Wins, Emily Maynard Starts Filming, and Bachelor Pad 3 Is Happening — With a Twist
The drama really unfolded during the "After the Final Rose" special, in which Courtney appeared sans engagement ring. Gasp! Apparently, the combination of her Season 16 behavior and all the negative press pushed Ben to call it quits — temporarily. But he swears on his father's grave that he never cheated on Courtney.
In the end, they still love each other, Ben is sorry that he didn't stand by Courtney 100 percent, Courtney is ready to work on finding trust again, and the ring goes back on her finger. Will there be a wedding? Yes. When? Don’t hold your breath.
With The Bachelor over, it's time to get excited for The Bachelorette, which premieres on May 14. The woman of the hour, Emily Maynard, started filming her journey this week. Word on the street is her pool of men are "mega handsome" and include several single dads.
Last but not least, ABC has officially renewed Bachelor Pad for Season 3 — and YOU can be on it! The cast will include past contestants, plus one lucky fan. Click here to apply.
