Hasn’t Becca Kufrin been through enough?!
On Monday’s episode of The Bachelorette, one contestant left Becca in tears (and feeling like she got Arie’d all over again) when he admitted he lied about “falling” for her.
After quite the physically challenging afternoon group date (the guys were tasked with fulfilling Becca’s lumberjack fantasy), the boys headed to the evening portion of the date, which was all about fighting for alone time with Becca.
While some guys rose to the occasion -- Colton finally seemed to be back in Becca’s good graces, and things got pretty steamy with Becca and Jason -- Jean-Blanc (the cheesy” colognoisseur” guy) decided to ruin the evening with bizarre flirting tactics.
Jean’s strange behavior began when he pulled Becca aside to gift her a bottle of perfume. He then proceeded to act like he had a secret to tell her, leaning in as if he was going to whisper in her ear, only to awkwardly go for a kiss instead.
Becca was clearly not feeling it as she told the cameras that she felt the kiss was a bit forced.
Seemingly picking up on the awkward vibes, Jean pulled Becca aside for a second time later in the evening.
“I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and I really haven’t felt like this in a long, long time,” he explained to her. “I wanted to let you know that I’m truly falling for you, and I’m falling in love with you.”
After a somewhat deer in the headlights moment, Becca told Jean she wasn’t feeling that way about him and didn’t think they were even on that track. So, she sent him home.
However, as Jean left, he turned to Becca and told her he only said he was falling for her because he thought that’s what she wanted to hear.
Clearly upset by his comments, Becca returned to the remaining guys to issue a warning.
“I’m really mad right now,” she told them. “I’m so pissed because I only am asking for honesty from you guys. That’s all I want. And to not get that, I feel so disrespected. So if anyone else can’t be honest with me from here on out, I don’t want you here.”
She then ended the night, calling the rest of the date off, without even handing out a rose.
While Becca admitted to feeling “off” the next day, ahead of her one-on-one with Wills, things quickly took a turn for the better as the two opened up about their past heartbreak and how they fought through it.
“With Wills, he’s been one of the more reserved guys but he really surprised me tonight,” she confessed after offering him a rose. “We’ve both experienced the heartbreak, the blindside, and he’s still able to be open and vulnerable and share that side of him when I can tell it’s not easy. I feel like I can genuinely trust him.”
