From catty girls (Chantal) to leading contenders (Courtney and Emily), Season 16 of “The Bachelor” has officially started off with a bang, and what about those tabloid rumors that Courtney was seen walking Ben’s dog in San Francisco?

“I heard that she was in an exercise class, and she was hanging out up in San Francisco. If indeed Courtney is the one, we would never be so ridiculous as to just let our happy couple just hang out, and that is if there is a happy couple to be had,” says Chris. “The truth is, she was actually in New York working that week. It definitely was not Courtney hanging out.”

Aside from the attention-grabbing stories, such as former “Bachelorette” contestant Casey’s mug shot and Ben not handing out a final rose on Monday, Chris really believes that Ben is ready to meet the woman of his dreams.

“I think he needs a haircut,” Chris jokingly says, and then continues saying, “Ben and I get along really well. He’s a great guy. He’s the kind of guy you want to hang out with. I think he’s the kind of guy girls want to be with. He has a great air about him. This kind of charisma and charm, and he pulls it off really well. He’s a very confident guy. He’s ready to fall in love.”
