SPOILER ALERT! Stop reading now if you don't want details on the filming of The Bachelor Season 17.
Cue another round of “What the f--k happened?!”
It was exciting news for fans to hear Kacie would be joining Sean’s season, since — on paper — they seemed like a perfect match. He’s hot. She’s cute. He’s sweet. She’s sweet. He’s got a twang. She’s got a twang. Faith is a huge part of his life. Faith is a huge part of her life. Yes, they already knew each other ahead of time, but we thought maybe that would work in her favor? Guess not!
Spoiler king Reality Steve tweeted on October 7, “As for Kacie fans, sorry to say, but she's been eliminated and back home in Nashville already. Like I said, Sean wasn't picking her.” A fan asked, “How many rose ceremonies did she make it through? Guess they aren't considering her for next Bachelorette.” Steve replied, “She was never going to be the Bachelorette. Don't know why she even did it in the first place.” He added that the fourth rose ceremony would be filmed that night. So it sounds like Kacie doesn’t even make it four episodes.
Do you think she and Sean were just too similar — like in the brother/sister zone? Maybe they just didn’t have that spark, the kind of thing you can’t really determine by a list of attributes. It takes figuring out in person. At least Kacie made it a few episodes, unlike The Bachelor 15 alum Shawntel Newton, who showed up on Ben’s third episode and left on the same one. She knew the Bachelor before the show too, but it also didn’t do her any good. Maybe it would’ve been different if Shawntel had started with the rest of the “ladies,” like Kacie. Instead, she was insulted by just about every girl in the house and immediately rejected by Ben.
So take heart, Kacie! It could’ve been a lot worse. Maybe give it one more try, on Bachelor Pad 4?
