If you missed any of The Bachelor 2013 Week 6 (Feb. 11) on Monday night, you may not have caught the blowout fight between AshLee and Tierra. This event played a part in one of the ladies being sent home by Bachelor Sean Lowe well before the St. Croix rose ceremony.
The ladies started going at it after Tierra, 24, confronted AshLee, 32, accusing her of trying to sabotage her relationship with Sean. AshLee countered that she'd done no such thing, but that she found Tierra incredibly rude. The fight between Tierra and AshLee escalated and then finally settled down; soon, girls separated and went to their corners.
The Bachelor 2013 Week 6: Tierra, AshLee Fight it Out in St. Croix (Feb. 11)
Shortly thereafter, Bachelor 2013 prize Sean Lowe came to collect bachelorette Tierra for a surprise meeting with his sister; due to the other girls' complaints about her, Sean wanted his sister's impression after meeting Tierra for herself. His sister had previously warned him girls that can't get along with other girls are generally trouble.
Naturally, Tierra cried and went on and on to Sean about how hard it is in the house. Eventually, Sean asked her to hold on a second and left the room. Sean paced outside, and said in voice-over, "I've made a decision. I know what I need to do." For a second, we were actually scared to look at the screen; we were afraid he was going to pull out a rose.
Back inside, however, Tierra's odds of finding love with Sean Lowe quickly evaporated when he started using words like "emotionally taxing". Sean told her, "I'm crazy about you. I have been since the very first night. But because I care so much about you, I think it might be best if you go home now."
Tierra was blind-sided. She blinked back tears and buried her head further into her hands. Sean spoke again. "This was not my intention, I had no idea this was going to transpire."
Sean explained,"I can't keep you here knowing how hard this is for you."
To add insult to injury, the poor girl didn't even get the customary limo ride to the airport. In the bitter end, Bachelor Sean walked Tierra out to a powder blue minivan.
"I can't believe they did this to me," Tierra sobbed. "I hope the girls got what they wanted." (Not to be mean, but we're pretty sure they did.)
As he walked her down the driveway, Sean asked, "Are you going to be okay?" Tierra replied curtly, "No."
When Sean returned to his sister, his sister learned Tierra had been sent home in the time she was waiting for her brother and the bachelorette to return together.
As she departed, still sobbing in the minivan, Tierra made one thing perfectly clear. "When I came in here, I told myself: no one will take my sparkle away. I'm not letting that happen."
Good luck with that...we think. Sparkle on!
