Chris Harrison’s Bachelor Blog: Selma’s Refusal “Really Was a Turn-Off”
Selma Alameri made a huge mistake when she decided not to immerse her body into a lake of frozen water. She placed more value on her life than on her love for Sean, and as a result she was immediately excommunicated from The Church of Lowe.
"Selma shot herself in the foot by not doing it," Chris Harrison tells TV Guide in his Bachelor blog. "I talked to Sean and it wasn't as much that she didn't want to do the Polar Bear Plunge — he understood that. But it was what she said later: 'Once I decide something I don't change my mind it doesn't matter what someone says to me.' So Sean was like, well wait, if I'm your husband and I want to discuss something, does that mean I don't get a say? It really was a turn-off."
You know what Sean finds a huge turn on? Girls with hypothermia. But was Tierra's brush with death the real deal, or just for show? "I mean it was cold, but they were in there for 2 seconds," Chris says. "Everybody from our crew to producers to the cast who did it was fine except Tierra. Was that a coincidence or was that the third time she got hurt? At some point you have to say she's the girl who keeps crying wolf to get attention."
Expect Tierra to stick around for Sean's trip to St. Croix, an episode which Chris describes as pivotal. "St. Croix is really the turnaround," he says. "It's the first time you'll start to see women profess their love and it's where things change dramatically."
Um, it took the girls seven entire weeks to fall in love with Sean? We were head-over-heels after the first few seconds of the premiere....
