This week on ABC‘s The Bachelor, we watched as Ben Flajnik sent Emily O’Brien home, despite having a great date with the blonde beauty. Whether it was due to her trying to warn Ben about Courtney Robertson, or not, Emily O’Brien revealed that she is relieved to be away from Ben Flajnik and the drama! Read on for more of Emily’s thoughts.
While Emily O’Brien’s elimination this week on The Bachelor came as a shock to some of us, Emily spoke in a press conference after the show, where she revealed that she is actually relieved to be away from Ben and the drama. Why? According to Emily O’Brien: “The most bothersome thing is this double standard in terms of speaking with Ben. He asked for openness and honesty and that’s the only reason I trusted him to talk about Courtney. I think it would have been a mistake to bring him home knowing what I know now. He is not the type of guy that I would want to bring home to my family. So, I’m relieved.”
And when asked about Courtney Robertson, Emily O’Brien replied with: “It’s sad that she had a hard time and that she’s having a hard time now with all the fall out. But I’d encourage her to take this as a lesson. If you want people to like you, you have to change your attitude and be nice.” Somehow, we doubt Courtney will take the lesson, as she appears to not give a hoot what anyone thinks of her, as long as she wins.
Emily O’Brien wishes that Ben would have supported her a bit more, when it came down to Courtney’s drama, but in the end she is fine with it all, and hopes that she will find an encouraging, and supportive man in the future – one that cares about her feelings, unlike Ben.
