The drama continued on Monday's The Bachelor — where another contestant was given the extra-early boot.
Bachelorette Michelle didn't even make it to the rose ceremony for episode three. Unlike Rozlyn Papa (who departed after it was revealed that she hooked up with one of the show's producers), Michelle's offense was more benign: she didn't like how Jake Pavelka kissed!
During a group date at a comedy club, Michelle confessed to Pavelka that their chemistry was off. "I really want to stay, Jake, I really do, I feel that we do have a connection, yet to spend this time with you and not really be able to kiss you, hurts me." Waffling about whether to remain on the show or not, she added to Pavelka, "If you want me to stay, I will stay."
To her chagrin, Pavelka replied in the negative: "Michelle, I think it would be better if you did leave," he said, quickly taking her outside to catch a cab.
Upon his return to the club with the remaining women, Pavelka explained his decision. "The moment I know that somebody is not the one for me … we don't have to wait for a rose ceremony."
Earlier in the show, Michelle shared her romantic ambitions with the camera. "I'm ready to get married and give my mom another grandbaby, you know, she wants another one. And so now it's my turn."
When the rose ceremony finally arrived, Pavelka chose to eliminate Elizabeth (who Pavelka called the "queen of mixed signals") and Valishia, who quipped "I'm used to things not going my way."
