“Hindsight’s a really beautiful thing,” The Bachelor runner-up Lindzi Cox said on Good Morning America Tuesday, just hours after America witnessed her would-be Romeo Ben Flajnik choose model Courtney Robertson over her on the show’s season finale.
“At the end of the day, it was tough for a little bit,” said Cox, a Seattle businesswoman with a killer smile and mile-long legs. “He made a decision and it worked for him, I wish them nothing but the best.”
Lindzi said that maybe her demure nature might have not grabbed Ben’s attention in comparison to Courtney’s sexually-fueled advances toward the handsome winemaker.
“She was naked a lot!” Lindzi said. “Maybe if I skinny dipped, I wouldn’t be here with you.”
Lindzi said she “learned a lot from the experience” and would not be opposed to looking for love again on the show’s sister franchise, The Bachelorette.
Asked about the off-hand comment she made after Ben picked Courtney — telling him, “When this doesn’t work, call me” — Lindzi said she was just kidding.
“That was a joke: I didn’t really know what to say, cause it was such an awkward silence … I thought it was funny.”
As we previously reported, on After The Rose, it was revealed Ben and Courtney’s relationship hadn’t had the Disney ending, as Ben wound up calling off the engagement after seeing her behavior on the show. After a little prodding, he slipped the ring back on her finger and the two remained engaged … for now.
Asked if she thinks they’ll make it, Lindzi played coy.
“I wish them nothing but the best … I don’t know.”
