Ben Flajnik talks to OnTheRedCarpet.com, following The Bachelor: Women Tell All, which aired on March 5, 2012.

After surviving "The Bachelor: The Women Tell All" special, Ben Flajnik told OnTheRedCarpet.com that "no man in his right mind" would go through the experience.

"Only because I'm under contract, no one in his right mind would agree to do anything like that," Flajnik told OnTheRedCarpet.com co-host Chris Balish. "At the end of the day, it's all about chemistry and timing for me and the reason those women were sitting on the stage tonight was just because of that. We didn't have that in those moments - it's really all because of that... It's so hard to say why things didn't work out between you and that person."
