“The Bachelor” corralled the season 17 women together for a mini reunion last night which was both fun and chock full of drama. Bachelor Sean Lowe ended up blindsided by last week’s castoff during the special “The Women Tell All” episode. AshLee called Sean a “frat boy”, and told host Chris Harrison that Lowe confided in her that he has no romantic interest in the remaining girls Lindsay and Catherine, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Of course AshLee left without a word to Sean after getting the boot last week, and the bachelor admitted he felt bad the way things ended with her.
“I really wanted to see AshLee, and that was also the person I was kind of dreading”, Sean told the Reporter backstage after the heated reunion. “We left on not-so-good terms. She left very angry and I was really looking forward to the opportunity to provide her with closure”, he added.
As if that drama weren’t enough, this season’s “resident mean girl” Tierra did little to dispel negative perceptions about her. She tried to explain to America and the other contestants that they have a misconception about her.
However, she dug herself a deeper hole in doing so. When asked directly by Chris Harrison if she had any regrets or wanted to apologize for anything, her response left a bit to be desired.
“Off the top of my head, no”, Tierra answered according to E! News. “There's nothing that I can say to apologize for because there's nothing that I feel that I did to these girls intentionally or that I said bad about them”, she added.
Bachelor Sean did have a response for AshLee’s shocking claims that he confided in her that he had no interest in Lindsay and Catherine. “I’m certainly not calling her a liar, I just think I probably said something that she took the wrong way”, Lowe said.
Responding to AshLee’s comment that he acted like a “Southern gentleman” with her, but like a frat boy with the other two girls, Sean said backstage, “I despise frat boys! I’ve never worn khaki shorts or Sperrys in my life. I don’t own a polo shirt.
“I’m sorry she has those feelings, but I’m a goofy guy and I’m silly a lot of the time and I think that came out when I was with Catherine and Lindsay a lot more than when I was with AshLee and maybe she just doesn’t understand it”, Sean said with a laugh.
The season finale of “The Bachelor” airs next Monday, March 11, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. Will Lindsay’s day 1 limo exit in a full-on wedding gown seal the deal? Who do you think Sean will choose?
