What does your scent say about you? Well after the group date ‘The Bachelor’ just went on, we’re still unsure, but it definitely causes a lot of drama.
Ben Higgins ladies are one jealous group. This week, Olivia joined the “villain” train with Lace (who yes, admitted she drank too much on night one) becoming very disliked by the other girls. After getting the first impression rose on night one, they weren’t too thrilled when she once again, became a favorite in Ben’s eyes.
In the first group date, Ben took one group back to school — the girls were split into two teams and were tested in science, geography and athletics. Mandi and Amber were the final two, but Mandi was clearly the best runner. She jumped through hurtles for him. Literally. However, that didn’t mean she got the group rose. Even though Lace literally got two one-on-one moments with Ben (by interrupting), it was Jennifer got the first real kiss, and JoJo who got the rose.
The first one-on-one date of the season went to Caila, who is, you probably remember, Ben’s biggest fan. However, he left the planing to Chris Harrison — and brought along Ice Cube and Kevin Hart. So, Ben drove Caila through LA with the guys in the back of a corvette, stopped at a liquor store where Ice Cube wanted Ben to buy condoms (what liquor store has condoms?!), and then they went go to a creepy hot tub store and got in (hopefully it was cleaned). However, they later had dinner and a private concert (where Ben sang to her!) and obv. they kissed. .
The next date was all about the love lab, where science could tell Ben if he was really compatible with these girls. First the girls had to run on a treadmill, then Ben had to smell them and see if he was drawn to their scents. While Olivia was “very sweet,” Samantha was “sour.” Eek.
From there, it got even more awkward. The girls had to get really close to Ben in bed, and see what their physical, thermal connections were saying. Oh yeah and the other girls had to watch (yes, torture). The lowest score went to Sam — she got a 2.4 out of 10! Olivia (not surprisingly) got the highest score, making everyone livid.
Afterward, Amanda finally told Ben she had two kids, and he reacted perfectly, obv. However, he gave Olivia the group date rose. And basically she bragged non-stop. Not a good look, but she only bragged in the interview so I guess she gets a pass (for now). Oh yeah, Amanda also started crying.
During the cocktail hour, Olivia got a little more hate by interrupting one-on-one time when she already had a rose (not so smart), Lace broke down and felt like she blew it, and Amanda cried again, but this time for a good reason. She was really discouraged after not getting the rose after telling Ben about her kids and he totally made up for it (and made her cry again) by making little rose barrettes for her daughter.
It was time for the rose ceremony, and it was totally intense. LB was given a rose but decided to leave early, letting him give it to someone else — Amber. So with that, three girls were sent home: Jackie, Mandi, and Samantha.
Alright guys, is Olivia a villain or just really into Ben? Let us know what you think!
