Um, spoiler alert? Either this is The Bachelor's biggest ruse yet—or the engagement cat has just been yanked out of the bag!
Courtney Robertson, rumored for some time now to be the woman Ben Flajnik proposed to in the end, was photographed trying on wedding dresses yesterday at designer Mark Zunino's bridal boutique in Los Angeles. And then she left the shop with a garment bag!
Maybe we wouldn't mind the flagrant photo op apparent spoiler quite so much if her little shopping trip didn't come amid a flurry of tabloid headlines questioning Courtney's motives and calling Ben out as a cheater...
While the official position from ABC, Bachelor host Chris Harrison, Ben and the 25 ladies (or 26, if you count interloper Shawntel) he dated to varying degrees this season has been silence, someone (or many people) are having a grand time telling the media about how Ben picked Courtney over Lindzi Cox and how messed up the whole Ben-Courtney dynamic really is.
Yeesh, so much for love! Anyway...
Courtney tried on at least two gowns Wednesday, including an intricately detailed, strapless mermaid gown with a ruched bodice and sweetheart neckline, and a plainer strapless number with an Angelina Jolie slit up the left side.
Us Weekly, which has featured Courtney on the cover at least twice, appears to have cornered the market on the Ben-proposed-and-is-now-partying-like-a-single-guy storyline, but RadarOnline also chimed in today with a source who said that Ben called the show "the worst experience" of his life.
Oh, and the season finale airs March 12.
