Courtney Robertson, who famously embraced her role as the villain on season 16 of the show, with Ben Flajnik — she won, they got engaged, and then, in standard Bachelor fashion, broke up shortly after — tells Allure that finding the right balance between eating and looking chic on camera was tricky.
“When you get to dinner, the food is already sitting there, but you don't eat while you're on camera,” Robertson shared. “Well, you could eat — they don't tell you not to — but you're trying to have a conversation so shoving food down your face is hard. And it's funny because they are your favorite meals because they know what you like.”
Alcohol, meanwhile, is in ample supply, and is frequently responsible for the on-camera antics. “Some people can get into trouble with this,” Courtney says.
But don’t worry about the girls: “When you're not filming, you're at a beautiful hotel and you wake up to a buffet of food.”
