This week on The Bachelor on ABC, Shawntel Newton showed up to shake things up for Ben Flajnik and the bachelorettes, but when it came time to hand out the roses, Shawntel did not get one, as Ben thought it would be unfair. After she was sent packing, Shawntel Newton revealed that she was shocked that she did not get a rose, and she feels like Courtney may have had something to do with it. Read on for more…
Ben Flajnik was flattered that Shawntel Newton showed up on Monday, but she was not given a rose, as he felt it would be unfair to the other ladies. After the show, Shawntel spoke to OK! Magazine, where she revealed that she felt there was nothing unfair about it, and added that she thinks Courtney Robertson played a part in her not getting a rose. Shawntel went on to tell the magazine: “To defend him, yes it is unfair, but I am sorry the whole situation is unfair. You’re trying to compete for one guy, what’s one more girl? In my closing interview on the show I said being fair needs to be thrown out the window. This is someone that you’re probably going to marry so I don’t think fair is right in this.”
Despite how Shawntel feels, Ben Flajnik felt he did the right thing, even though some of the bachelorettes were downright nasty to Shawntel. Shawntel was a little shocked by the other ladies’ behavior as well, and she went on to add: “Watching it and hearing some of these girls’ comments on my body and them saying that I am ugly in person or that I am a b**ch. It was like ‘Wow!’ There was nothing that could have prepared me for that. I was not expecting that. I was hurt by all of those comments. There was not one thing said that was nice.”
