Love her or hate her, Courtney is here to stay on ABC's The Bachelor!
The 28-year-old model got even closer to winning Ben Flajnik's heart on Monday's episode, earning a rose during an outdoor fly fishing date in Park City, Utah -- much to the chagrin of bachelorettes Emily and Kacie B.
Flirting her way through the group outing, Courtney felt no competition when it came to Flajnik's 12 other bachelorettes. "Some of these girls just don't get it. They want him to hate me and see the side of me that's shutting down around them, but when I'm around him, I blossom," Courtney argued.
While some bachelorettes tried to keep Courtney away from Flajnik, others -- like Emily -- were eager for the two to interact, in hopes that Flajnik would see her true colors. "She is like a statue made of marble," Emily reasoned. "It's really beautiful, but it's cold and hard on the inside."
In a last-ditch effort to rid the house of evil Courtney, Emily used her one-on-one time with Flajnik at the cocktail party to vent about the most hated woman in the house. But what could be viewed as a strategic move totally backfired when Flajnik refused to buy into Courtney's so-called double life.
"You're going to go crazy if you end up reading into this. It's going to lead to your demise if you let this person consume everything you're doing and not focus on us," Flajnik said during their conversation, not realizing Emily was talking about Courtney.
After their ill-fated chat, Courtney quickly found out Emily's game. "I want to rip her head off and verbally assault her, or shave her eyebrows off in the middle of the night," Courtney sniped. "She should watch herself. I'm done being nice to that girl."
Realizing the error of her ways, Emily was fearful she'd be denied a rose, but in the end Flajnik kept her around over Monica, who failed to earn a rose at the rose ceremony, and Samantha, who was dismissed during her group date.
Argued Emily: "I hate that I jeopardized my time to talk about someone else, but I just hate [to think] that he'd end up with someone who's been dishonest with him."
