Last night on The Bachelor, Sean Lowe was suckered into giving Tierra another rose, leaving the other bachelorettes annoyed and baffled. But today, Sean explained why he did what he did last night – and it was pretty much nothing more than a sympathy rose.
We know what you’re thinking – why did Sean Lowe give Tierra a rose last night on The Bachelor? Unfortunately, just as we’ve watched in past seasons, at this point in the game, Sean was unaware of the drama going on with Tierra.
In his People Magazine blog, Sean explained the situation a little better for those of us who were left wanting to slap him last night. “I knew she was having a tough time with the other women and needed more reassurance than anyone else. What I didn’t know was how much the other women disliked her. For the most part, Tierra was all smiles around me so I didn’t know she was showing the women another side.,” Lowe wrote. Um, did he not watch Courtney Robertson last season?
In any event, Lowe also admitted that giving Tierra a rose last night was more of a sympathetic decision: “I wanted Tierra to be happy and I wanted to fix whatever was wrong with her. Isn’t that what boyfriends are supposed to do?” In layman’s terms – he did it to shut her whining butt up. But looking back, he can now see that maybe it was not the best decision, as he went on to add: “It was obviously a rash decision that was not received well by the other women. But please keep in mind I had not seen the Tierra they had.”
Is anyone else hoping that Tierra will get the boot next week? Yeah, something tells us it won’t happen and we’ll have to endure a few more weeks of her whining and fake tears.
