Ever wonder why so many of the couples that get together on The Bachelor end up splitting soon after the show ends?
Former Bachelor contestant Courtney Robertson says it is because producers brainwash people to fall in love on the show.
She told US Weekly, “In many ways, I felt brainwashed.” Adding that the lack of contact with the outside world is also a contributing factor, “You’re so closed off!”
Robertson, who won the last season of The Bachelor and has now split with ex Ben Flajnik, says that she regrets being duped by producers.
Robertson pointed out one date when Flajnik brought along her favorite snack, popcorn, “But I realize it wasn’t him. It was the producer,” she says.
With out the help of The Bachelor producers Robertson quickly realized Flajnik was no romantic. “Ben said he was all picnicked out,” she told Us weekly.
After the couple split Robertson said it was hard on her saying, “I’ve never experienced heartache like this,” Robertson tells Us. “We had baby names picked out!”
