'Bachelor' Ben Flajnik & Courtney Robertson Call It Quits

Bachelor Ben and CourtneyNo one believed Bachelor Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson were going to make it five minutes. It turns out, they made it 11 months. The couple has (unsurprisingly) called it quits after just 11 months of being "engaged."

Just as an aside: When is this show going to stop pretending these people are EVER getting married? It has become so unlikely, it's almost a joke. It would be far MORE shocking if the couple actually made it to the altar.

Look, I'd like to say I am sad, but the truth is, we all saw this coming for months. Courtney was vilified and hated on the show and Ben was cheating on her within weeks. Actually, it's amazing they made it this long!

The reality of these reality shows is that about 0.01 percent of the people come on to find "love." The rest are there for one reason: Fame. That's it. It's that simple.

It's a formula that works, too. Each one of these people gets their fame card and then rides that minor celebrity wave for a few years. It's a little sad and a lot pathetic. Unless you are into that kind of thing. But if you are, then you can't possibly be surprised that these two are ending their "relationship." 

He chose her because she was hot and she chose him because she wanted to "win." It's not exactly Romeo and Juliet.

Let's not waste a lot of time wondering what did them in. Could it have been his hair? Her bitchiness? Just what DID break them up? Seriously, are we wondering this? This was so obvious!

Before long they will both be dating new people (if they aren't already) and this will all be a blip on their radar. I can already imagine him going back to Lindzi. Of course, it may be too late! She is all shacked up with Kalon.

Oh well, dude should have chosen better, right?

Are you shocked by this breakup?
