Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

In I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends former Bachelor “villain” and season 16 winner Courtney Robertson shares her story of love and heartbreak, and the reality of appearing on reality TV. For the first time ever, a former Bachelor contestant takes us along on her journey to find love and reveals that “happily ever after” isn't always what it seems.

Quatrième de couverture

Courtney Robertson joined season 16 of The Bachelor looking for love. A working model and newly single, Courtney fit the casting call: She was young, beautiful, and a natural in front of the cameras. Although she may have been there for all the right reasons, as the season unfolded and sparks began to fly something else was clear: She was not there to make friends.

Courtney quickly became one of the biggest villains in Bachelor franchise history. She unapologetically pursued her man, steamrolled her competition, and broke the rules—including partaking in an illicit skinny-dip that sealed her proposal. Now, after a very public breakup with her Bachelor, Ben Flajnik, Courtney opens up and tells her own story—from her first loves to her first moments in the limo. She dishes on life before, during, and after the Bachelor, including Ben’s romantic proposal to her on a Swiss mountaintop and the tabloid frenzy that continued after the cameras stopped rolling.

For the first time ever, a former Bachelor contestant takes us along on her journey to find love and reveals that “happily ever after” isn't always what it seems. Complete with stories, tips, tricks, and advice from your favorite Bachelor alumni, and filled with all the juicy details Courtney fans and foes alike want to know, I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends is a must-read for every member of Bachelor nation.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Courtney is funny and self-aware 21 août 2016
Par Emily Jane - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I am a huge Bachelor/Bachelorette fan. A friend of mine told me this book was great so I was curious to read it. It was funny and interesting. I watched Ben's season and I, like (almost) everyone else I thought she was terrible! But this book really made me change my mind. I can see how her sense of humor, looks and history made her a big target for the show. She reminds me of some of my friends who were raised in other countries where you say what you think without worrying so much about other people's feelings. I am sure the producers really took advantage of her personality and made her seem much worse than she is.

I appreciate how she accepts blame for the part she played in everything and how she doesn't really badmouth anyone but explains what happened. The only thing I find puzzling is her insistence that Ben is a hottie. I don't see it!!

Unlike Andi Dorfman, Courtney was smart enough to get the help of a professional writer. Also unlike Andi, Courtney accepts responsibility for her actions and keeps loving forward instead of dwelling on what she lost. I'd definitely recommend this book to any fan of the show.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Highly Enjoyable 12 janvier 2017

Okay, I'm going to be completely honest here. This is not a brilliant book, it's not great literature, it's not a contribution to the world of art. But it is very satisfying and enjoyable reading. Robertson is almost too revealing (thanks for letting us know how the show affected your bowel movement, Courtney). Whatever you thought of her on the show, she comes off as extremely likable here. She - and her ghostwriter - tell a coherent story, reasonably paced, with the right amount of detail. She also reveals quite a bit about how the show is made, which I found fascinating. I'm giving this five starts for the pure pleasure of reading it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating Must-Read for Bachelor Fanatics 8 juillet 2014
Par Mikemac09 - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a revealing look both at what goes on behind the scenes in making The Bachelor and, whether intentional or not, at the raunchy lifestyle and persona of this Hollywood-model turned author. The biggest takeaway is that producers, through selective editing, can amplify conflict and create viewer tension by depicting Bachelor/Bachelorette contestants as either Mother Teresa's or budding Ted Bundy's. By the end we can't be sure whether Season 16's Bachelor winner, Courtney Robertson, was a mean-girl villain or a somewhat willing victim. There's plenty of salacious dirt to go around.

The book is peppered with locker-room language and lewd details such as the number of men 30-year old Courtney has had sex with (not that many according to her and primly rounded off. She also has a rule against going all the way on first dates with men she might be interested in getting serious with later on.) She describes her favorite positions for intimacy either alone or with a partner, complete with the Cosmo-inspired name for one of them. Robertson identifies the guy who bestowed "the best sex I've ever had", an alum of the show. And of course the number of times she and Ben did it on their overnight in the Fantasy Suite. Courtney gives us the names of other Bachelors and Bachelorettes who were intimate in their Fantasy Suite interludes, which commonly involve separate sex with all three of that season's finalists, two of whom are soon to suffer the humiliation of being publicly dumped by someone they've fallen for on national TV.

Robertson maintained a detailed journal during the wearisome downtime between exhilarating dates that some of the girls went on with Bachelor Ben Flajnik. So we learn that contestants for weeks on end are sequestered together in exotic locations with ample free booze but deprived of access to cell phones, TV, or friends and family. This fosters a combustible mix of boredom, estrogen fueled gossip, intense competition, and the unrelenting threat of being sent home.

There's a close-knit brotherhood/sisterhood of former Bachelor contestants, whom the show occasionally convenes for parties and brings back for the summer spinoff "Bachelor Pad". What's surprising is that so many gorgeous, nubile female alums, who were publicly virtuous on their previous seasons, make themselves readily available for the alumni hunks. If your name is Emily M., don't read this book.

Once a winner is selected the winning twosome is kept separately in seclusion for about four months, until the episodes air. That hiatus is when two people from often totally different backgrounds first encounter their partners' cultures by long distance phone calls and a few clandestine arranged dates. There was apparently little time during previous taping sessions to have discussed with each other such basic topics as religion, politics, one's views on saving versus spending money, and their respective levels of education. When each episode airs they see for the first time how they were portrayed and what the audience saw their partner doing and saying to the other contestants. Thus, the winners frequently breakup sometime after they have milked the notoriety and financial opportunities offered to them (such as what one gets paid for being on Dancing With The Stars) after the final results are shown to the public.

Lovable Ben comes off as distant, self-absorbed, and more interested in being with his buddies than with Courtney. His mother is painted as snobbish (her first question to Courtney was "Why didn't you go to college?"). Courtney's mother's mantra was "All men are scum" and she raised her daughter as a prude. Courtney, of course, ultimately broke out of those constraints in high school, which she barely completed, and she has continued to accelerate through life in the passing lane. Like many other Bachelorettes she falls regularly for "bad guys" despite having her pick of almost any man she wants.

The book is fairly well written, aided by Deb Baer. There are plenty of inside info lists, such "How To Get Noticed on the Application to The Bachelor", "Arie's Kissing Tips", and show creator's Mike Fleiss' "Banging The Bachelor". The lists are thrown into the narrative somewhat indiscriminately, however. It's hard to remember from 2012 the many contestants referred to by only first name so fans may want to have a computer handy to Google "The Bachelor Season 16 Cast" for pictures and bios.

Some critics have called The Bachelor "fantasy football for females" (and eye candy for a few voyeuristic males like me). But ladies, be careful what you wish for. Another lesson of "I Didn't Come Here To Make Friends" is that appearing on this show can be life-changing but there's less than a 4% chance of a happy ending. And even the winners can be losers.

Honestly...I disliked Courtney while she was on The Bachelor competing for Ben. I think after reading this it made me realize that she's not the villain everyone wanted to hate that particular season. This book normalized her and it probably needed to be written. I just hope what's in this book is actually true. A good read for those who would like to know more of the "behind the scenes" of this show. I read in 1 day.

Every woman wants the man of her dreams and a happy home. Courtney dreamed bigger than life itself. She wanted so badly to be in a good relationship and to be married to the love of her life, so much so, she went on the Bachelor to find it. But instead, it's a true love story about rejection in the midst of being star-struck. There were so many parts of her story that I could relate to, such ignoring the red flag signs when Ben didn't make her a priority, or when his friends were more important than her. She basically had to do all the work in the relationship. As a wife and mother of 23 years, my heart sank, as I could identify with many of those feelings in my own relationship.

I learned alot about the reality of having a celebrity status and fans never giving her privacy, and the sad reality of fans who just wanted a picture to sell to TMZ. I learned that celebrity status isn't as glorious as one might think and her story has taught me things I never thought of, or considered.

She is very honest about her sexuality and goes into great juicy details about her masturbation adventures, as well as the sexual encounters she had. It kept me interested, as I always wanted to turn the page to know more.

A very good read that I really enjoyed!! I read the book in one week and kept going back to it every chance I could get. I could really identify with a lot of her experiences, and Courtney has made me like her in ways I never expected through her book and journey in life.
