We’re still a little shocked. It still doesn’t seem to make much sense.

When contestant Season 16 contestant Brittney Schreiner received a one-on-one date card from Ben Flajnik in Episode 3, we assumed she’d be happy about it! (The girls usually are, after all.)  But not Brittney! For one reason or another, Brit’s heart just wasn’t in it.

After a great deal of introspection and soul-searching, Brittney decided that she wasn’t up for the competition. She hadn’t had much one-on-one time with Ben so far, but Brittney said she just didn’t feel like this was where she was supposed to be.

That’s about as much of an explanation as we got. Maybe Brittney just wasn’t feeling a connection with Ben. Maybe the cattiness was too much for her. Or maybe she was upset to find out that the contestants wouldn’t be living in the Bachelor mansion this season. In any case, the girl with the charming grandma willingly eliminated herself from the competition.
