Those The Bachelor producers are sneaky ones.
After Caila Quinn was eliminated from the contest for Ben Higgins’ heart, camera crews were in her hometown in Ohio filming. Immediately, Bachelor Nation assumed this meant Caila was the new leading lady for The Bachelorette…to mixed reviews.
However, after Ben gave his final rose (and a huge Neil Lane ring) to Lauren Bushnell, it was announced that runner-up Joelle “JoJo” Fletcher would be the next one to hand out roses.
Reality Steve reports Caila was pretty much blindsided by the decision.
“Basically, she got played,” Reality Steve says. “[The producers] led her to believe it was her, she was convinced it was her…then they told her at pretty much the last minute, ‘We decided to go with JoJo.’ From everything I’ve heard, Caila is not happy, nor should she be.”
However, Caila has nothing against JoJo. She tweeted out her congratulations to the new Bachelorette with a cute pic.
