Lindzi Cox: “If I Skinny Dipped” I Might Have Won The Bachelor


Despite being sent home on The Bachelor season finale, 27-year-old business development manager Lindzi Cox feels no animosity towards California winemaker Ben Flajnik, 29.

"At the end of the day, yeah maybe it was tough for a little bit, but he made a decision, it was what's best for him, and I respect that," Cox said on Good Morning America Tuesday. "I wish him nothing but the best."

"When I watch it on TV, I could see why he's with [Courtney Robertson, 28]," she added. "They really did have a solid connection."

Cox did, however, take a small jab at Robertson, who often took her clothes off on the ABC dating show. "She was nude a lot," Cox told co-host Lara Spencer. "Maybe if I skinny-dipped I wouldn't be here with you."

The jilted Bachelor contestant didn't appear on the After the Rose special Monday, as she felt Flajnik and Robetson had too many issues that needed to be addressed.

"Ben and Courtney came out and it was a pretty emotional go they had. I think it was tough for them. I'm in a good place. I don't really need my closure," Cox said. "I think Ben has bigger things to worry about, so we just decided that I'd play another day."

Cox added that she's "in a really good place now" and doesn't regret appearing on The Bachelor. "I learned a lot about the experience. It's awesome. I would totally go do it again," she said. "I wish them nothing but the best."
