Bachelor Season 16 runner-up Lindzi Cox may not have won Ben Flajnik’s heart, but she definitely won ours. Her laid-back style and unwavering positivity proved a breath of fresh air on a show known for high levels of cattiness — and kept us rooting for her till the end! Recently Lindzi sat down with SheKnows to talk with Bach-alum Ashley Spivey about Ben, beauty and the upcoming Bachelorette, Emily Maynard.

Here are some highlights from the full interview:

If you could be on any other season of The Bachelor, which season would you pick?
Andrew Firestone’s season! He is so dreamy! I was still in high school when his season was on, though, so I might have been just a tad young for him ;).

Who did you hope the Bachelor would be?
I had the biggest crush on Ames [Brown], so I was hoping for him!

What do you think about Emily Maynard being the next Bachelorette?
I wish her all the best and hope she finds happiness!

Do you think ABC is going to guarantee a love story after this past controversial season?
I do think they can guarantee a love story. Everyone's love story is different and from what I've seen of Miss Emily, she's really in it to find someone.

Do you hope she doesn't pick some great guys so you could possibly do Bachelor Pad with them ;)?
If I have the opportunity to do Bachelor Pad, I would absolutely hope she leaves at least one good catch for me ;). I'm excited to see the men of Emily's season!
