Bachelor fans have been well aware of contestant Michelle Money's motives for some time now, but on Monday's episode, the 30-year-old hairstylist finally got through to Brad Womack — and not in a good way.
After Money whined her way through a series of group dates in Costa Rica, she stormed into Womack's villa, demanding answers on why she's been denied one-on-one dates. A shell-shocked Womack was really stunned when Money evilly listed the other women who he should send packing.
"You're scaring me," Womack said after Money made her bold predictions, that had her coming in first ahead of Ashley, Shawntal and Britt. "I feel like we took 10 steps back," he told her. "I'm afraid of the direction we're going in."
"I didn't like that you kept Chantal — it bothered me," Money told Womack. "If you end up with Chantal, it'll be a mistake. I know that I'm supposed to be here. I want you to know more about me."
Why Money's sudden desire to caution Womack? She worries that her biggest competition Chantal O'Brien is getting in the way of their relationship.
"If Brad is more interested in Chantal then I am not his girl," Money fumed as O'Brien is taken on a romantic solo date that ends behind closed doors. "All I can do is be myself, be patient and hope that Chantal gets attacked by monkeys. Or apes."
For her part, O'Brien seems to have changed her tune since Jan. 31's Las Vegas trip. Rather than worry about her peers' jealousy, O'Brien focuses all her energy on Womack.
"I was in a bad place," said O'Brien, referring to her outburst in Las Vegas where she accused Womack of playing favorites. "I want to just be vulnerable with you, which is weird and exciting. I want more of that. Every day. Forever."
And later, she drops a bombshell that leaves Womack stunned.
"I've fallen in love with you," O'Brien revealed. "I love you. I know I'm not going to get anything back, but I love you."
In the end, O'Brien and Money both got roses while Alli and Jackie were sent packing — and Money's plan fell into place for another week.
