Courtney Robertson doesn't hold back -- and she's dishing out the dirt on what really happens behind the scenes on "The Bachelor."
The 31-year-old, who stole Ben Flajnik's heart in Season 16 of the ABC dating show, recently sat down with toofab's Candice Brock to talk about her bestselling tell-all "I Didn't Come Here To Make Friends: Confessions Of A Reality Show Villain."
And trust us, it's filled with juicy details!
Courtney knew the book could be polarizing to "Bachelor" fans but she still crossed her fingers for success.
"It really could have gone one or two ways. Either people are going to love it, or they're going to hate it or it's TMI," she dished. "I'm just really happy I got to tell my side of the story and it was so well received!"
One particular tid-bit that garnered a ton of attention was Courtney's shocking Fantasy Suite confessions. The star revealed that during her season, the producers offered no ... er ... protection for those who chose the overnight date.
"I didn't realize that that would become such a big topic. It just didn't come up! I didn't see any," she laughed. "I've talked to people from other seasons and now I know there's a plethora of protection in the Fantasy Suite."
Courtney's relationship with Flajnik fizzled out and the pair called it quits in 2012. After going through the wringer on reality TV, would she do it over again?
"I can see the positives now, but yeah it was just a lot to put myself through for love. Took a big swing at love and I missed," she joked. "But, I learned a lot from that situation, that's the silver lining."
