Is anybody surprised that the reality show The Bachelor doesn’t build long-lasting relationships?

The show’s latest couple to call it quits is Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson.

In Touch is reporting that the winemaker and model have confirmed their split, saying in a statement, “After meeting over a year ago, we have decided to end our romantic relationship. The ups and downs weighed heavily on us both and ultimately we started to grow apart because of the distance, time apart, and our need to focus on our respective careers.”

The couple met last spring on Season 16 of the hit ABC reality show continued, “We have nothing but the utmost respect for each other, and both feel this is the right decision. We continue to remain friends and will support each other in future endeavors. Thanks to everyone for your love and support, it’s been quite a ride.”
