Last season, it was Krystal Nielson. On Nick Viall’s season, it was Corinne Olympios. Ben Higgins’ season had Olivia Caridi, and we’re not saying it’s bad to be this contestant. Krystal Nielson is now happily engaged and doing great! But we are saying it’s a choice to be that contestant, because it can go wrong so, so fast. This year’s frontrunner for title of “that contestant” has really, really gone for it.
You may remember Demi as the girl whose intro package included a call to her mother, who is in jail for embezzlement, and then as the girl who got out of the limo first with the line: “I haven’t dated a virgin since I was 12.”
“Oh, it’s my rose,” she said, shimmying with the rose in her hand.
The other women were totally taken aback. Short of breath, sick to their stomach, astounded that Demi would think that was OK. Or really that was just one woman saying that, but it certainly seemed as if others were annoyed by Demi daring to touch that rose. It’s just a sign of her age! She’s not ready for this! She touched a rose!
In the end, Colton never found out that she dared to touch it before he gave it out, and it turned out to not be her rose. She didn’t know what happened, since he loved her confidence so much!
Demi took Colton up to her “fantasy closet” to give him a massage while the other girls panicked downstairs.
“Does she not have parents?!” one wondered.
“Hey ladies, I totally just had an amazing time up there with him,” she announced when she got back downstairs. “I gave him a little massage, just chit chatted with him, we had a good time. I feel like I definitely helped him tonight and I feel really good about everything.”
Demi then learned about Tracy, who was crying. Demi does not care one bit about Tracy (because Tracy’s older and age doesn’t help you in this game, or something)
“The cougar attacks do not get to me at all,” she explained. “It is water off my back.”
Obviously, she got a rose, because Demi’s not going anywhere anytime soon. They’re not going to let go of a girl whose hometown date might include a reunion with her mother post-jail!
