The Bachelor: Kacie B. Vs Courtney
Ellen asked her what happened between Kacie and fellow contestant Courtney. Ellen said that she doesn’t like to judge people, and she knows that editing can be misleading in reality shows. She has invited Courtney to share her side of the story on Ellen’s show, but the impression she gives on The Bachelor is not a positive one.
Kacie said that Courtney is manipulative, and you can’t edit someone to say things they didn’t say. She said it’s hard to know who Courtney really is, because she showed a different side of herself to Ben than she did to the other contestants.
She said that she and the other contestants were shocked to learn that Courtney and Ben snuck out to go skinny dipping one night during filming.
