Legions of fans were relieved to see Sean Lowe dimiss Tierra LiCausi on last night’s episode of The Bachelor. Established early on as this season’s requisite villainess, Tierra had no trouble annoying both her fellow contestants and the millions who tuned in for the hit reality show. But there’s at one person on Earth who doesn’t hate Tierra’s guts: Bachelorette Emily Maynard.
Tierra LiCausi is the girl everyone loves to hate. We think that the widely-shared disgust for the recently dismissed Bachelor contestant stems from her penchant for excessive drama….but former Bachelorette Emily Maynard disagrees. During a live Twitter session earlier this season, Emily explained her failure to understand everyone’se hatred of Tierra. “Am I crazy for feeling kind of bad for Tierra? She’s definitely aggressive but is she really that mean?? Have I missed something?”
Fans quickly responded en masse about how much they disliked Tierra, but Emily persisted in giving her the benefit of the doubt. “Woah.. I’m guessing from the response she really is that bad. Maybe its just editing though??”
Expanding on her Tierra tweets, Emily further explained her thoughts in a recent video blog for E! “I get that she’s like kinda not that warm and fuzzy, and not really the nicest girl ever. I get all of that, but I haven’t seen anything outwardly mean that she’s done. I get that she wants to hang out with Sean a lot and she’s super aggressive, but there’s that girl every season. And we know those girls in our everyday life, but do we really have to hate them?”
No comment from Emily yet now that Tierra’s officially out of the picture, but we’re sure to hear from Sean Lowe’s former flame sooner than later!
