In the finale episode of “The Bachelor” Ben Flajnik proposed Courtney Robertson to be his love over the fan favorite Lindzi Cox. Courtney Robertson accepted Ben Flajnik’s marriage proposal and got a sparkling diamond ring during the season 16 finale of “The Bachelor”.

“I will love you forever … you’re stuck with me,” Robertson told Flajnik after he  presented her with the spectacular Neil Lane engagement ring and the final rose while the pair stood in a clearing in the Swiss Alps.

The other finalist, fan favorite Lindzi Cox, seemed to take the disappointment.“Good luck,” the 27-year-old fan favorite, said, adding, “and if things don’t work out, call me.”

Tonight’s winner Robertson gained a reputation for meanness when she trash-talked and antagonized the other 24 participants of season 16. She referred to contestant Nikki Sterling as “fatty” and called Blakely Shea a stripper.

In two-hour finale, Flajnik took Robertson and Cox on dates, and introduced them to his sister, Julia Flajnik, and mother, Barbara Flajnik. Both women had flown to Switzerland to give Flajnik support and advice.

Flajnik’s sister and mother liked Cox’s warmth and sincerity, but expressed extreme reservations about Robertson.

“The girl that other girls don’t like is typically a red flag. That doesn’t sit well with me,” Julia Flanik said.

But after they met with Robertson, they had a change of heart.

The model told Julia Flajnik that she initially tried to make a good impression on the other contestants, but when they weren’t receptive, she stopped making aneffort and just focused on Ben. Robertson also admitted she could have tried harder to reach out to the other women.

“She’s a really amazing girl,” Julia Flajnik said, speaking of Robertson. “I found her to be very, very sweet.”

Flajnik’s mother said she found Robertson “to be a very kind person … .”

Flajnik was one of the two finalists in the last season of “The Bachelorette.”  He famously had his marriage proposal rejected by Ashley Hebert, who accepted J.P. Rosenbaum’s proposal.

He was clearly torn between both Robertson and Cox, saying several times that tonight that he had “fallen in love” with them.

In the “After the Final Rose” special following the finale, Flajnik revealed that he and Robertson had broken up for a time while the show was airing, but he confirmed that they were still a couple.

A subdued Robertson admitted that she didn’t fully trust Flajnik after not having his full support during the airing of the show, but said she still loved him and believed in him.

The pair sat close to each other and held hands. Both teared up when they watch video of the proposal, Flajnik calling it “a beautiful moment” that had been “soiled” by negativity.

But when host Chris Harrison took the engagement ring out of his jacket and asked Flajnik what he wanted to do with it, he took it and put it on her finger.

“I very much want her to have this again,” Flajnik said.

Asked whether he thought there would eventually be wedding, Flajnik replied: “Yeah, I do. When? Who knows?”
