Is he watching the same show as all of us?
Arie Jr has defended Krystal after watching last week’s episode of The Bachelor. He doesn’t feel either Bibiana Julian or Krystal Nielson was at fault when the two got into a heated confrontation.
It all began when Krystal – who got a one-on-one date with Arie and also received a rose interrupted Bibiana’s conversation with the Bachelor at the cocktail party. Bibiana then went on to call Krystal a “selfish b-tch” and disrespectful, and that she wasn’t the only contestant who felt that way.
Here’s what Arie wrote in his blog for PEOPLE.
“Going into the cocktail party, I found myself worried about how little I knew about so many of the women. How could I possibly know who to send home? Watching it all back, that’s why I totally understand Bibiana’s frustrations.
Being on the other side, I know that you desperately want to see if you have a connection with the person you’re dating. You’ve sacrificed so much to be here, and you just want your fair shot at love. I also understand Krystal wanting to get more time. As much as it may have rubbed the girls the wrong way, we had just had an amazing date. and it’s difficult to not be able to spend time with one another.
I really wish I had known how much Bibiana was struggling that week, though. She’s so vibrant and interesting and I wish I would’ve known she needed a little extra support.”
