Remember when Tierra LiCausi flung herself down a staircase just so she could enjoy the sensual pleasure of Sean Lowe stroking her lower butt? Good times! Sure, this lovely lady is slightly manipulative, but Chris Harrison thinks she's mischaracterized as The Bachelor's resident villain.

“Go back to Courtney [Robertson]: It’s just the way they go about dating," Chris tells Entertainment Weekly. "I guarantee you, Tierra does this in her real life. I think it’s when you shine a big light on it and a camera, that you’re like, ‘Ooh. Wow.’ I bet she watches some of this back and she’s like, ‘I’m kinda manipulative.'"

So, will Sean see right through Tierra, or will he fall for her charms? "With Tierra, you’ll see she’s getting to these women, and they kind of hang themselves," Chris explains. "They go to Sean, and then Sean comes to Tierra, and she’s just a sweet, innocent little girl like, ‘What? I don’t understand.’ So it’s working. If it continues to work, we’ll see. But right now, she’s getting the best of the situation.”

Clearly, this girl studied Courtney's season of The Bachelor to prep for her debut. But hey — if Tierra continues in Court's footsteps, she'll be engaged to Sean in no time!
