Lindzi Cox wasn't the only one who went home upset after "The Bachelor" finale on Monday night, as many people considered her the front-runner to win Ben Flajnik's affection, and hand in marriage. But that honor went to reality villain Courtney Robertson. Nevertheless, on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (Weeknights, 12 a.m. ET on ABC), Cox said she was happy for the couple and happy for herself.
"I'm in a really good place," she said. That's a much more serene emotional place than she was during the finale, when she told Flajnik to call her if things didn't work out with Robertson.
She said Flajnik was always nice to her, and she and Robertson had a good relationship on the show as well. But she admitted that she felt Flajnik led her on a bit. Of course, that's the nature of the show. There always has to be at least one person strung along to the end to keep tension high and viewers interested.
When asked about the possibility of being the next "Bachelorette," Cox seemed interested in the idea. "I think I'd like to have all those options," she told Jimmy Kimmel. Though she admitted it would be difficult to have to stay single from now until filming on a Lindzi Cox "Bachelorette season could begin. Currently, Emily Maynard is in line to star in the next season, set to premiere May 2012.
"Jimmy Kimmel Live" can be seen every weeknight at 12 a.m. ET on ABC.
