When Ben Flajnik’s sister reported back to her Bachelor brother about Courtney Robertson in their Season 16 finale first meet, her first words were: “I am shocked.”

Gasp! Could she possibly be pulling a Chrystie Corns, who famously trashed Ashley Hebert’s Bachelorette Season 7 frontrunner JP Rosenbaum? The only difference is, JP was beloved by all, so you can only imagine the more hopeful reaction of many a viewer when Julia uttered those three words.

BUT... turns out Julia was won over by the model whose only fan until now was Ben (oh, and Casey Shteamer).

Though she had some reservations about Ben dating a model, she admitted to stereotyping and was ultimately “blown away” by Courtney and felt that she could realy fit in with the family.

Julia, who is super close to Ben, did not deny that Courtney had “some work to do,” but she was fully supportive of what Ben “want[s].”
