We heard a lot of sad ex-boyfriend stories from Bachelor Ben Flajnik’s bachelorettes this season, many of them being cited as the source for their trust issues. Ben, however, seemed to be everything that their ex wasn’t or couldn’t be...
Until he wasn’t, either.
So which ex-bachelorette with one of the biggest sob stories has been seen out and about with her former flame?
That would be Season 16 finalist Lindzi Cox, according to Reality Steve, who hosted his live video blog answering fan questions on Thursday, March 1. And yes, the ex in question is the one who broke up with her via a “Welcome to Dumpsville” text. Though Stevecouldn’t confirm if they were back together, he did say that she had been seen with him.
The funny thing about that story is, as much as we’ve heard it repeated on the show, very little is out there about the text-happy man himself. Steve does claim to have first-hand knowledge of the infamous “Dumpsville” text, which, he says, “was sent” in those words... though he asserts that it is “not the way it was portrayed on the show.”
So is that flame still burning? Last we checked (hometown dates episode), it seemed that her family was still reeling from the hurt it caused Lindzi. Did getting dumped again, in front of America, make her ex’s discretion seem miniscule in comparison? Guess we’ll have to wait until March 12 when Lindzi gives her first post-show update on the After the Final Rose special.
