The Bachelor contestant, Emily Maynard’s confession left the Bachelor house in tears on Monday’s episode.
On Monday night’s show, Maynard tearfully told the other women how she lost her fiancé in a plane crash before discovering that she was pregnant with their daughter.
The rest of the contestants instantly felt Maynard’s pain and shed tears with her. But according to host Chris Harrison, it went beyond a few tears off camera.
“We showed a little of the emotion … [on the show, but] it actually spilled over for hours. Literally the rest of the day, girls were crying. It really just destroyed the house. These girls were torn apart by this story,” Harrison told Ryan Seacrest Tuesday on his KIIS-FM radio show.
As shown on Monday night, Marynard’s story “set the ball in motion” for contestant Madison to leave during the rose ceremony.
Even though some viewers may think Madison, the wannabe vampire, is odd, Harrison called her the “sweetest, most humble human being you’ve ever met,” adding that her decision to leave was sincere.
“She realized, ‘Wow, I am not the same kind of person Emily is. I’m not here for the same reason Emily and Chantal are. I just need to pull myself out of this.’ It was so emotional and so devastating that … it essentially took her out of the show. I was [surprised],” Harrison continued.
Harrison and Seacrest also discussed Brad Womack, when Seacrest said that Womack is “not that hot because he’s too sweet.”
