Brittney leaves the show: As Steve writes, "After the group skiing date, they all got dressed and had an after party at the Tonga Room. It was during this time that Brittney, the woman whose grandmother introduced her, voluntarily leaves the show." Sorry, Sheryl!
Samantha does not leave... yet: "It was also established in San Francisco that contestant Samantha Leavy had fallen for producer Bennett Graebner. Nothing physical ever happened between the two, but Samantha told producers she didn’t want to be there anymore because she had feelings for someone else, somehow they convinced her to stay another episode, and that was that. I am not sure if this storyline will ever make air because Bennett is married with kids, but hey, it sure made for some good dirt. So whatever BS reason they show for Samantha leaving in Utah, just know it’s because of that."
Shawntel Newton returns... then leaves: "At the cocktail party before the rose ceremony at the Farimont hotel is where Shawntel Newton, the mortician during Brad [Womack]’s season, comes back to ‘enter’ the game." Shawntel is the mystery “stranger” who returns to date Ben. Unfortunately, Ben isn't feeling it and she doesn't get a rose. Sad face. We always loved Six Feet Under girl on Season 15.
We have a fainter: Because there isn't enough going on, Erika Uhlig faints during the rose ceremony while Ben is passing out the roses.
Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Brittney is already gone and Shawntel never gets a rose. After fainting, Erika continues her bad night by not getting a rose. Jaclyn Swartz also goes home.
