Bachelor's Women Tell All: "You Will Hear Explosive New Details," Host Promises
If you still have questions about what happened with The Bachelor's Rozlyn and a member of the production team, you'll soon find out. That's the word from host Chris Harrison, who promises Monday's women-tell-all episode will include more of the ousted competitor's "antics" and "desperate attempts to get 15 more minutes of fame." Harrison says the episode will also explore what might have been with Jake Pavelka and the departed Ali, adding, "feelings are still there."
TVGuide.com: Will we learn more about Ali's choice to leave Jake for her job?
Chris Harrison: I know there's been a lot of questions about why she didn't get the time off, because she knew she was going on the show, but she'll explain all that in great detail. It was really just an unfortunate misunderstanding and mistake that led to her having to leave, and so it was really sad that it happened, and it didn't even need to happen.
TVGuide.com: What about her and Jake's interaction?
Harrison: The first thing he says is, "I can't believe you left, I fully expected you to just show up in St. Lucia." What was funny is when I talked to [Ali] privately, she said, "I expected him to just fly to San Francisco and get me." I think they both were expecting the same thing. It's just one of those really unfortunate instances, but the feelings are still there.
The Bachelor: Where Are They Now?
TVGuide.com: Will Rozlyn tell her side of the story?
Harrison: Rozlyn is back in full force as only Rozlyn can be. I got some heat and so did the show for being vague and so I went into the show [and] told everyone we're going to get the truth out. You will hear from the women explosive new details that you have never heard before, because none of them have ever spoken about it until now. There will be 100 percent no question in anyone's mind, other than Rozlyn's, of course. She's the only one confused about it in that relationship. The funny part, not even the guy involved in the relationship is confused. And when I tell you explosive new details, I mean details. Nothing vague about any of this. Time, place, everything — you will hear it all.
Chris Harrison on Bachelor scandal: Rozlyn "started this firestorm"
TVGuide.com: So after the special airs, there will be no doubt about what happened?
Harrison: It's not a he-said, she-said thing — everybody knows what happened. It only behooves her to continue this and she's the only one still talking about this. We are so done with her and her antics and her desperate attempts to get 15 more minutes of fame and that's what this is about and we don't care.
TVGuide.com: Anything you can tell us about the finale?
Harrison: Jake said himself he's extremely happy, he loves his decision, he likes where he is, and people may not love it, but he's very happy. The entire time he's been going through this, he's never really tried to suck up to the public or done what he thinks everyone will be happy with. I like the fact that he's gone against the grain the entire time. Being the bachelor or bachelorette is really a lonely job. You're surrounded by people all the time, but it is a very isolating, lonely thing to go through. These people get butchered; personally attacked. I tell all of them, all you owe is to yourself to be honest, make your choice and go live your life.
