3/28/2016 10:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0328_courtney_robertson_the_Bachelor_bikini_launch'Bachelor' winner Courtney Robertson is at it again ... flaunting her ridiculously hot body at the beach, but this time she kept her bikini on. 

If you recall ... Courtney won the Ben Flajnik edition of "The Bachelor" after they banged in a now famous "ocean sex" scene from season 16. Alas, like most of these TV romances, the relationship didn't last. Courtney spent Easter alone in Malibu ... looking hot!

Courtney's message in these pics is pretty clear -- I'm available!

3/20/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0318_lauren-bushnell_tmz"The Bachelor" winner Lauren Bushnell could have fifty thousand new reasons to smile ... and all she's gotta do is slip into some lingerie. 

Bushnell's been offered a year long endorsement deal from Yandy.com, an Internet leader in ladies wear. In exchange for being the company spokesperson, we're told Lauren will get a boatload of bras and panties from Yandy's new bridal lingerie line and $50k for her troubles.   

Not a bad deal considering the bride-to-be has got some serious wedding expenses coming up in the near future.  

It's unclear if Lauren will take the bait, but she's certainly no stranger to accepting things ... just ask all those roses.

Sooo, soak it in while ya can. Ben and Lauren seem to be all in ... for the cameras at least.

Mazel!

'The Bachelor' Lace Got Punk'd

3/8/2016 10:59 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0308-the-bachelor-tattoo-ABC-01It sure looked like an obsessed fan interrupted "The Bachelor: The Women Tell All" episode Monday to show Lace a tattoo of her face on his stomach ... but the guy's actually just a joker.

Our 'Bachelor' spies say comedian and "Punk'd" producer Jamie Abrams faked both his emotions and his tattoo.

Abrams -- who went viral in 2013 for the "The Women of LA" YouTube video -- showed up at the taping and surprised Chris Harrison by standing up and professing his undying love for Lace Morris.

As for the look of fear on Lace's face ... we're told it's 100% real. Our source says no one from cast or crew were in on the prank, so she was understandably creeped out.

We reached out to both ABC and Abrams, but no comment.

The 'Bachelor' Caila Quinn Back On Camera ... Next 'Bachelorette'?

3/4/2016 12:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0304_caila_bachelorette_shooting_launchThe next 'Bachelorette' has yet to be announced, but there's a strong sign Ben Higgins reject Caila Quinn is getting the nod.

Quinn, who was eliminated from "The Bachelor" on Monday's episode, was spotted shooting something Wednesday around her hometown of Hudson, Ohio. Cameras followed her to local spots including her alma mater, Western Reserve Academy.

She was also seen sitting alone inside a gazebo looking pensively into the distance -- which has all the makings of a classic 'Bachelorette' intro scene. 

We're told onlookers were asked to sign release forms to appear on television, and although the crew didn't specify what show they were shooting for ... there are reports Caila is the chosen one.

We reached out to ABC, but no word back.

Ex 'Bachelor' Contestant Dead After Apparent Suicide

2/16/2016 11:48 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0216-lex-mcallister-INSTAGRAM-03Lex McAllister, a contestant on one of the most popular seasons of "The Bachelor" is dead, and authorities and her family believes it's a suicide ... TMZ has learned.

Lex appeared on season 14 of the show with Jake Pavelka ... she was eliminated after the first week. Lex made waves when she spoke out about Jake's breakup with Vienna Girardi (the season's winner), saying Girardi was not at fault

Law enforcement sources in Columbus, Ohio tell us they received a 911 call Saturday at around 2 PM ... the caller stated Lex had texted her earlier that day saying she wanted to "end her life" and when the caller went to check on her it appeared Lex had OD'd on prescription pills.

0216-lex-mcallister-the-bachelor-ABC-02She was taken to a hospital in stable condition but, according to her family, her body started to shut down. The family withdrew life support and Lex died Tuesday morning.

A member of Lex's family tells us, she struggled with depression and bipolar disorder.

Gia Allemand, who was also a contestant on Lex's season of the show, committed suicide in 2013 by hanging.

'The Bachelor' Famous Bahamas Pigs Got Bad Vibes from 'Cranky' Chicks

2/9/2016 2:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

When "The Bachelor" contestants hooked up with some famous pigs in the Bahamas, the pigs got the short end of the stick ... according to our swine sources. 

If you missed it Monday night, Ben and his chicks hit the Bahamian island of Exuma ... where pigs roam the beach and swim with tourists, usually quite peacefully. But some of the hogs had beef with the ladies, got aggressive, and sent the ladies squealing and running. Pretty funny stuff.

Now the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism is defending its swine, saying they only got ornery because they picked up on the contestants' bad attitudes. Pigs are more sensitive than ya think, according to tourism officials. 

Important to note ... no one, human or pig, was injured and most of the girls just played "damsel in distress" -- which got Ben's attention.

We'd say it was a win-win, but it's unclear what the pigs got out of this.

'Bachelor' Host Chris Harrison Lauren B's 'Engagement' Ring Is a Total LAUGHER!!

2/3/2016 7:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

'Bachelor' favorite Lauren B.'s mystery ring is either a Cracker Jack prize or the most embarrassing engagement ring in history ... according to Chris Harrison.

"The Bachelor" host could barely contain his laughter outside Staples Center Tuesday night when we asked about the ring that had fans thinking Lauren was the winner. Chris calls us out for missing the obvious sign Ben didn't put that thing on Lauren's hand.

Watch, he also jabs our photog pretty good for filling out a Bachelor bracket. Which is totally deserved.

'Bachelor' Ben Higgins I Have a Dream ... And You're Not in It

2/2/2016 6:48 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

'BachelorBen Higgins celebrated the first day of Black History Month by booting the only black contestant left from the show.

Poor Jubilee Sharpe was rose-challenged on Monday night's show, leaving in tears.

Jubilee got her walking papers when Ben told her during a group date he just wasn't into her and then sent her packing.

Maybe he judged her on the content of her character.

'Bachelor' Contestant Lauren B. Engagement Ring On ... Winner Winner?

1/27/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0126-the-bachelor-lauren-bushnell-INSTAGRAM-01

'Bachelor' favorite Lauren Bushnell looks like a taken woman, judging from the ring on her finger, but there's less here than meets the eye. 

The photo surfaced Tuesday -- Lauren wearing what looks like an engagement ring -- and it caused a ****storm thanks to her friend who posted the pic on Instagram.

Could it be ... Ben not only picked her but popped the question?  

No.

The photo was taken in September, 2 months BEFORE Ben picked the woman of his dreams. There's no way she was married during the competition, or even engaged, because it would mean the show was a sham and that would be a PR disaster for producers. 

So the takeaway is this ... a rose by any other name may be a rose, but a ring on the left ring finger is not always an engagement ring.

Ex 'Bachelor' Chris Soules Sorry, This Farmer ... Ain't Down with FarmersOnly.com

1/26/2016 5:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0218-chris-soules-bachelor-TMZ-02Just because Chris Soules didn't score a wife on "The Bachelor" ... doesn't mean he's searching for one on FarmersOnly.com -- according to a lawsuit he just filed.

Chris says a TV and web commercial for the site -- where farmers "don't have to be lonely" -- used his "persona" without his permission. The spot claimed Chris needed the site's help in the romance department because "he picked a city girl" while he was on a TV show.

Soules picked Whitney Bischoff on 'Bachelor,' but they famously broke up after a 6 month engagement.

Here's the odd thing ... the FarmersOnly ad never actually shows Chris' face, or says his name -- it's just a silhouette of a cowboy over the Hollywood sign, while a spokesman talks about the cowboy's love problems.

But as Chris says in his lawsuit ... he's "one of the most famous celebrities in the United States" -- so he and his attorneys think he's the lonely cowboy in the FarmersOnly ad.

Chris wants all the money the site made off "his" commercial, plus damages.

'Bachelor' Fave Lauren B. You Can't Boot This Booty!!

1/20/2016 1:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0120-lauren-b-bushnell-splash'Bachelor' contestant Lauren Bushnell still has a ways to go to the final rose, but she's a total winner in a bikini.

Lauren B. hit the beach in Cabo San Lucas with her family.

There are still 17 ladies left in the 'Bachelor' house this season -- and Lauren, a flight attendant, is definitely a frontrunner ... with fans, anyway. There are even rumors she won the whole thing.

Lauren's next one-on-one date with Ben H. better require a bikini! For her, not him.
