I’m not certain why Courtney Robertson was smiling in Los Angeles today (March 13th), because the ratings are in…and they ain’t good. Entertainment Weekly reports that last night’s Bachelor finale suffered its lowest ratings ever, with a 2.9/8 share in adults 18-49. Guess all leaked photos hurt the episode’s chances of coming out on top, dropping 36% from last season’s finale on the same night.
Ben Flajnik, who bears a striking resemblance to Cousin Ron from Can’t Hardly Wait, chose the unpopular model as the final rose recipient, pissing off everyone who tuned into this season. Flajnik told People that he hopes “people will get a better understanding of who we are and why we’re still together,” adding that “Maybe someday people will get behind us, but for now we work really well together.”
