'The Bachelor's' Lindzi Cox: Courtney Robertson 'was naked a lot,' maybe that's why she wonAdd to Favorites | The Bachelor
"At the end of the day, it was tough for a little bit," says Lindzi, of the rejection. "But he made a decision that's best for him and I respect that. I wish them nothing but the best."
"Hindsight is a beautiful thing ... especially when you watch it on TV. I can see why he went with her ... they really did have a solid ... and she was naked a lot. Maybe if I skinny-dipped, I wouldn't be here with you," jokes Lindzi. (Jokes?)
As for why she didn't appear on the After the Final Rose special, Lindzi says, "I'm in a good place. I don't need my closure. I think Ben has bigger things to worry about it ... I learned a lot from the experience, it was awesome. I would totally go do it again."
And regarding her "if it doesn't work out, call me" line to Ben, which we were a little shocked Lindzi put out there, she says, "I was kidding! That was a joke. I didn't know what to say, it's such an awkward silence and I make jokes a lot. I think it sounded a little more serious [than I meant it]."
Finally, when pressed for whether Ben and Courtney will make it, Lindzi diplomatically says, "I wish them nothing but the best. I don't know."
