10 Reasons Ben Should Take Away Olivia’s Rose

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Fairfield chapter.

Many of us are in total shock over last Monday’s episode of The Bachelor.  SPOILER: for those of you who haven’t seen it, Ben left us hanging with a “To Be Continued…” at the rose ceremony!  WTF!  It was a very intense episode filled with lots of tension and emotions, particularly when Ben sent Jubilee home before the rose ceremony (no surprise there, sorry girl). 

But after everything the girls have told him about Olivia, is Ben going to take away her rose?  The main question is, can he even do that?! Well as our girl Becca put it, “Ben doesn’t seem like one to follow the rules.”  So for all you girls out there who are ready for crazy Olivia to go home already and stop wasting everyone’s time, here are 10 reasons why Ben should take away Olivia’s rose this week and send her home, once and for all!

1.) She’s a Bully!  She told sweet little Amanda (to her face) that she felt like her talking about her kids was like watching an episode of Teen Mom!  We’re not in high school anymore, grow up please.

2.) Her crazy big mouth.

Come on Ben, do you really like kissing that?

3.) She has dragon breath. 

Again, do you really want to kiss that?  When you gave her that mint leaf in last week’s episode we caught the hint, and we’re hoping she did too…

4.) She’s distracting.  

Ben is here to find his true love, and we’re here to watch him do that.  Olivia is really just a distraction at this point.  We want to watch Ben’s real love stories develop between him and the other girls.

5.) She already thinks she’s married to Ben. 

Girl, if he really wanted to married you he would have proposed already.  You’re not soulmates.  You don’t have a “connection.”  He’s not yours. 

6.) She hijacked Ben as her cooking partner. 

Although none of us were really rooting for Jubilee to be Ben’s partner for the cooking challenge, Olivia was definitely a worse decision.  We could just tell how uncomfortable Ben felt the whole time, and all the other girls were clearly annoyed. 

7.) She has cankles. 

We all remember Ben’s his heart-wrenching announcement to the girls that two close family friends of his recently died in a plane crash, and Olivia had to ruin the moment by pulling him aside to cry about her cankles. 

8.) Her talent show performance. 

Olivia, we all saw how awkward you looked (including Ben).  No need to cry about it girl. 

9.) She interrupts everyone. 

Every time one of the girls is having an in depth conversation with Ben, Olivia is the first to steal him away.

10.) Her chronic bitch face/ fake smile. 

Everytime someone gets a one-on-one date and it’s not her, Olivia is not afraid to hide it.  She’ll immediately either throw on a bitchy glare, or flash a completely fake grin.

Guess we’ll have to tune in tonight to see what Ben decides to do…fingers crossed, bye bye Olivia!
