- caused problems last week when she gave the date rose to Wes over Craig M, and became tearful this week when she backed out of the kissing challenge.Unfortunately for her, despite Wes's best efforts to save her, she was sent packing on last night's episode.
"I did have a boyfriend going in, we'd gotten back three weeks before and we'd been on-and-off for three years.
I just went into it and was trying to be faithful to him and make friends and get close to everyone as much as I could and I ended up getting closer to some people more so than others."Are you still in a relationship and did the show cause friction with your boyfriend?
"I'm not going to say yet whether or not I'm in a relationship, I'm going to wait until the finale to tell everyone what's up. It was really hard for him and hard for me to put him through that.
I feel bad that I got close to another guy on the show even though I didn't cheat, but my boyfriend handled everything with such class."Why did you decide to give the rose to Wes instead of just saying you liked him and were giving the rose to Craig M for strategy reasons?
I told Craig - you didn't see it - 'Don't worry you're going to be safe, this is what I plan on doing'.
I gave him a whole explanation of why I didn't give him the rose and he had a lot of confidence in me and he just got shut down at the rose ceremony.
I was crushed when Nikki went back on her vote and there was nothing else I could do to keep him safe and he was gone, I was crushed."Why did you decide to drop out of the kissing contest instead of just trying to make it to the end?
"Going through it, I knew the guys would respect me and wouldn't try to make out with me or anything like that because I had a boyfriend, but when I went and saw what was going on and how the girls were kissing the guys, I thought, 'I'm not going to kiss like that and there's no point in me kissing a guy if I'm just going to kiss him on the cheek or just give him a peck on the lips.
"That whole situation, they showed as much as they could.
