‘The Bachelor’ Breakdown, Season 20, Episode 5: Is Olivia Really a Villain? What the Girls Are Saying Off Camera

Holding nothing back! On the Monday, February 1, episode of The Bachelor, season 20’s resident villain Olivia Caridi dug her claws into single mom Amanda Stanton

“I feel like it’s an episode of Teen Mom that I watch …  freaks me out,” the 23-year-old news anchor quipped after Stanton, 25, revealed that her mom and ex-husband were taking care of her two daughters while she filmed the show.

After the dis, only-twin-left-standing Emily Ferguson scurried off to tell Ben Higgins that Caridi was not the girl he thought she was. 

But were Caridi’s harsh words the real deal, or was she provoked to play mean girl by the show’s producers? (And seriously, does her breath stink?!) Plus, did Ferguson tattle just to amp up the drama? Or is Caridi actually persona non grata among the contestants?
