<div style="text-align: center;"><strong>Just one day before viewers watched Ben Flajnik get down on one knee and propose to Courtney Robertson on <em>The Bachelor</em>, Ben is caught getting close with another woman!</strong></div>
An eyewitness tells the new issue of Life & Style -- on newsstands tomorrow -- that on March 11 Ben met a Courtney look-alike (pictured above) for a boozy lunch just after 11 a.m. at the Tipsy Pig in San Francisco. Afterward, they headed to a park, where the brunette beauty straddled Ben and gave him a five-minute massage.
"It seemed like they were close," the eyewitness tells Life & Style. Ben and the girl, along with a few other pals, spent two hours in the park, drinking Tecate beer and sunbathing.
In fact, the pair spent nearly the whole day drinking together! "They were drinking at the restaurant and at the park," the eyewitness tells Life & Style.
And this all-day Sunday party began just eight hours after a fun-filled night out on the town! On March 10, Ben went to dinner with his friends at Marlowe. "Ben lit up when he saw a blonde woman he knew in the restaurant. He got up from his seat at the table and greeted her with a quick peck on the lips. He insisted she sit down at his table," an eyewitness tells Life & Style. "He had his arm around her hugging her. They both seemed happy and really into the conversation."
At 9 p.m., the group left Marlowe and headed to Lion Pub. "He and his friends were taking shots and he was talking to several women who recognized him there." Ben chatted with a woman in a sheer top, and around 1 a.m., he then climbed in a cab with her and they sped off together. "It was like he was looking around and thinking about it before he did it," a fellow pubgoer reveals. Though an insider says he dropped the brunette off before he went home, it's clear he's been eager to interact with his female admirers.
"Guess he's not engaged," noted Tiger Woods' ex, San Francisco resident Rachel Uchitel, when she saw him on March 11.
But he is! On the After The Rose special, Ben said he and Courtney plan to move forward with their relationship. While the proposal was genuine, an insider tells Life & Style things are not as rosy between the two anymore. In fact, they may just stay together for the fame. "Courtney's tears are all bulls---. She wants to get everything she can out of this," the insider reveals to Life & Style.
"And don't feel bad for Ben either," the insider insists. "His winery is doing well, so it's a win-win for both of them."
"They're going to milk it as long as they can," the insider adds.
