'The Bachelor:' Is Alayah Really There For The Wrong Reasons?

‘The Bachelor:’ Is Alayah Really There For The Wrong Reasons?

Plus, Bachelor Nation Queen Demi Burnett returns to the mansion!

After last week and #champagnegate, Bachelor Nation could have used a break from the eyeroll-inducing drama that’s been dominating Peter’s season so far. Alas, on this week’s episode, that was not meant to be.

While the third episode of the season featured a one-on-one, a group date, and the return of Bachelor Nation’s queen, Demi Burnett, there were basically just three stars of the entire episode: Peter, of course; Victoria P., who got the one-on-one date to a country bar at the episode’s start; and Alayah, who was the winner of the pillow fight tournament at the group date (AKA one of the cringiest dates in the show’s history, and that is saying something).

But before all of that, there was Alayah seeming pretty drunk in the mansion kitchen, bragging about how people think she’s innocent and squeaky clean because she’s a pageant girl, but she’s actually “nasty.” Suffice it to say some of the other women didn’t love hearing that. Never mind that humans contain multitudes and can adjust their actions based on the environment and company they’re in. There were a fair amount of women who heard what Alayah said and assumed it meant she’s fake. This is The Bachelor, after all.
