Ellen DeGeneres Tells 'Bachelor' Ben Courtney Was 'Playing' Him

With Ben Flajnik a guest on her talk show this week, Ellen DeGeneres told 'The Bachelor' what millions of women around the country have been thinking for weeks.

"She manipulated you to try and get that rose," said DeGeneres, a fan and avid viewer of the show. "She said, 'Oh, I don't know how I feel.' Then you went and got the rose and gave it to her. That was not right."

DeGeneres was referring to show's most recent episode in which Courtney, the 28-year-old model, told Flajnik she was having second thoughts about their romance in the hopes that Ben would give her the lone rose on the group date.

The move not only infuriated the other women in the house, but many viewers.

"She may be a lovely person -- and you're probably engaged to her -- but the thing is, the way it was edited, she came off not nice," added DeGeneres.

""I could be wrong, because it's not fair to judge someone, but man she was playing you!"

"I'm going to find you a nice girl, 'cause that didn't work!," she joked.

"I told my mom and sister that I didn't want the LA models and all that kind of stuff, so that was one of the hurdles," admitted Ben, without elaborating on Courtney or she specific situation.
