Blonde versus brunette. Good versus … well, not so good.

That’s how ABC is positioning Monday night’s season finale of The Bachelor, as Ben Flajnik will decide between Lindzi Cox and Courtney Robertson.

The Women Tell All episode left no doubt about who the former contestants think Ben should pick. But of course, it’s up to him – and his affection for Courtney is obvious, despite all the controversy surrounding her.

Host Chris Harrison tells PEOPLE that this season has been "more competitive, darker" but believes that Ben has picked a “final two he really connected with and cared about.”
