As Chris Harrison toldEntertainment Tonight of the surprise guest’s arrival, "We might as well have rolled a grenade into the cocktail party." Who is this woman? "She's from [Bachelor’s] past... and is someone who had a relationship with Ben. At least that's what she said."
How did this “mystery” woman end up coming on the show to date Bachelor Ben Flajnik? "She called me and said, 'This is the situation, I want to come back'…[It was] up to Ben after that, and it was beyond explosive,” Chris said. “I didn't think the women would be happy, but I didn't think it would be such a huge deal. It's a category five meltdown."
Chris credits Ben with being such a great "catch" for bringing out the claws in the women. But he should credit the casting department for finding so many fame-hungry drama queens.
