After Andrew's shocking decision to eject Tina Fabulous from his Bachelor pad last week, we figure this guy must be sipping a little too much of his Firestone wine. After all, TV Guide Online pegged the 22-year-old Wisconsin-bred bombshell as a shoo-in for bridal bliss. Oh well, his loss! Here, Tina who's now a TV correspondent in Milwaukee tells why she won't shed any tears over the millionaire who got away.
TV Guide Online: How did the name Tina Fabulous come about?
Tina: I got the nickname from the pack of girls in the house because I was dressed up, and I can throw a football pretty far in stiletto heels!
TVGO: You definitely have the total package looks, personality and athleticism. What did Andrew not see that we did?
Tina: I think we weren't seeing eye-to-eye on having a family. I'm still young, and I want my career to come first.
TVGO: You looked surprised to be denied a rose. Hadn't you just slept with Andrew in Hawaii?!
Tina: No! We were just kissing. I can't believe that [segment]! I was laughing.
TVGO: But if you weren't making love, why did you two cover the hotel windows with bedsheets?
Tina: (Sigh) Mysteriously, every single curtain just happened to be missing. Every curtain was off and every door was off; somebody took all of it down. I'm like, "This must be the only suite in America that doesn't have curtains!" That's just ridiculous.
TVGO: Unlike most of the rejected girls, who bawl in the limo, you stayed strong.
Tina: When I didn't get a rose, I was disappointed, and my feelings were hurt because I did have genuine feelings for him. I just didn't think it was the place to cry. If I was going to do it, I'd do it back at home, but not on camera when I know that everyone's watching. People want to see you cry. People were more surprised when I didn't cry. He even said, "I was hoping she'd meet me halfway for the goodbye." He wanted me to cry over him. Now, that's taking it too far because he was crying and I wasn't. I'm like, "Suck it up!"
Tina: Seriously, I was watching it and I was like, "Rewind! Is he crying? He's crying!"
TVGO: Who will Andrew choose as his fiancée?
Tina: Here's the thing: He likes Kirsten a lot. He's super-attracted to her, but I think he's going pick Jen. Jen is very kind and she's older.
TVGO: Tell us three things ladies can do to achieve your level of fabulousness.
Tina: Always wear high heels. Make sure you always wear some sparkly jewelry because it makes you feel good, and wear fitted clothes to show off your body. Not slutty, just classy and fitted.
TVGO: If ABC asks you to be their next Bachelorette, would you do it?
Tina: It'd be something I'd definitely consider.
TVGO: Considering the pressure Andrew was under, could you make that kind of decision?
Tina: Oh, yeah! And I could do it better than him!
