New Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. Once Dated Courtney Robertson

Who Is Courtney Robertson?

Courtney Robertson, a model and licensed real estate agent, appeared on season 16 of The Bachelor with Ben Flajnik, which aired in 2012 a few months before the season of The Bachelorette that Arie was on with Emily Maynard. Courtney was known as the villain of her season, frequently finding herself caught up in drama with the other women on the show and infamously saying she didn't go on The Bachelor to make friends.

While Arie was the runner-up, Courtney won her season of The Bachelor and became engaged to Ben. Sadly, their relationship faced rumors surrounding their faithfulness to each other before Courtney and Ben officially ended their engagement after a few rocky months.

Arie and Courtney first were spotted on a date at a restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona — their mutual home state — soon after his journey on The Bachelorette ended. In her book, I Didn't Come Here To Make Friends, Courtney raved about Arie's skills in the bedroom, which sound quite steamy, to say the least. The two have dated on-and-off over the years, with a source telling Us Weekly that the Courtney and Arie were still seeing each other just months before he became The Bachelor.

In addition to dating Arie, Courtney Robertson dated Jesse Metcalfe, Adrian Grenier and Gerard Butler.
