Cassie Randolf dumped the Bachelor saying she wasn’t ready for an engagement, which caused him to jump the fence in Portugal and quit the show.
Former season 20 Bachelor and fan favorite Ben Higgins is calling Cassie Randolph out for the way she had handled her breakup from Colton Underwood.
“I think she should have done something different with Colton,” Ben tells ET during Roses and Rose special episode.
“It was very clear that she was not into him.”
“I think all she wanted to tell him was, ‘You’re a great guy, you’ve proven to be a great guy, but I’m just not that into you. And as a result, I need to leave.’ It felt like she was dancing around the subject, going, ‘This is too fast. This isn’t right for me. I just don’t know.’ She knew.”
“If she would have just told Colton, ‘This isn’t going to work, we’re not meant for each other,’ then Colton just has to say goodbye. He’s getting broken up with, and he can’t beg and he can’t scream for more,” Ben added.
About the fence jump, he said: “What Colton did, was he just fought for her, and I think that’s fair. He loves this woman. I don’t think she gave him the right explanation. She should have just left and said, ‘This isn’t going to work,'” he explained. “Shut that down.”
“I think it’s hard for him right now… A lot of the end of the season, where he’s jumping the fence, we don’t know how that ends, and that is the most emotional moment we’ve seen yet. None of this story… makes sense without the last two episodes. Right now, we’re sitting in a moment where most of the story line of this show hasn’t been played out.”
