The Bachelor’s Runner-Up Lindzi Cox: ‘Happy With How It Ended Up’

By Radar Staff

One glance at stunning Lindzi Cox and you’ve got to wonder just what Ben Flajnik was thinking in giving her the boot on Monday’s finale of the Bachelor, but nonetheless someone has to lose.

The leggy Seattle businesswoman appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Monday night following the show’s airing to share her experience on ABC’s real-life soap opera.

“I think in the moment, obviously, you’re like getting off this helicopter in Switzerland and you’re maybe going to get engaged to or maybe you’re going to get dumped and you have no idea,” she said of the enchanting Matterhorn backdrop where Ben decided to propose to model Courtney Robertson, and not her.

“In hindsight, he made his decision, and I’m in a really good place,” Lindzi said. “I’m happy with how it ended up. I respect it.”

Of course, the audience learned learned on After The Rose that Ben and Courtney’s relationship had crashed and burned since their high point in Switzerland, as the winemaker wasn’t thrilled with the bad girl antics he saw out of Courtney on the show, calling off the engagement.

Lindzi said she “didn’t dislike” Courtney, adding she “never saw that [evil] side of [her.]”

“We weren’t friends, but we were cool,” she explained. “It was a good ending. I’m happy for them. I’m happy for me. I don’t wish ill for them. I wish the best for them. Ben’s a nice guy … maybe he [led me on] a little bit.”

“I think I would like to have all those options though,” she said. “How fun would it be to have all these roses?”
