Tierra has managed to steal the spotlight so many times on The Bachelor
and this week was no exception. On last night's episode
, she surprised Sean during his group date, came out victorious during her two-on-one date with Jackie and even got confrontational with some of the women during the cocktail party. This shouldn't come as a shock anymore especially if you've seen all her other tricks earlier this season because according to host Chris Harrison, "the woman is good at what she does."
Comparing Tierra to a professional assassin, Chris pointed out her ability to manipulate Sean and the competition. He also revealed that Tierra having it out with the other ladies actually "lasted for several for hours and spilled from room to room." At least, though, it looks like Sean is gradually realizing the red flags.
"It may not be pretty or nice, but if her goal is to stir up the pot get the other women off their games and 'win' Sean, then she's doing just that," he wrote in his blog
. "She snuck over to the group date party the night before her date just to steal a little time with Sean to plant the seed for the next day. While all the other women are going crazy talking about Tierra to Sean she's able to perfectly play the victim. I don't feel like sweet little Jackie ever stood a chance against a professional assassin like Tierra. It was a mismatch from the start and as much as fans didn't want to see it, the unthinkable happened, and Sean kept Tierra... again."
"The cocktail party was a complete disaster this week," Chris added. "It was really the boiling point for all involved. The ladies finally had enough of Tierra's antics and Sean finally had enough of all of it... Sean was beginning to get really aggravated by all the drama and he also caught a firsthand glimpse at Tierra in full beat-down mode."
Meanwhile, the rest of The Bachelor bloggers seem to have the same opinion when it comes to Tierra. Season 6 Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky described Tierra's showing up uninvited to the group date "really messed up and freaky," while Sean himself even admitted that things would have been different had he seen Tierra's actions towards the other girls.
"I was terrified when she snuck up behind him. Ha! I honestly feel sorry for her because her behavior is making her come across as very insecure. I really don't think she means to act the way she does. I'm guessing that in her mind, she is doing what she knows best to get a man (perhaps because of what happened to her ex-boyfriend?) I'm not really sure what is going on with her, but I really just don't think she knows how to have a healthy relationship. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm not convinced that she is a bad person. I just think she is misguided. Before I move on from the group date I have to ask: Was Tierra wearing a shirt from the Blue Team? That is so crazy weird."
: "I had no idea she was going to surprise me and I certainly wasn't ready for it. I didn't know what to think about her visit, mostly because I was in shock seeing her there and knew the other women would be upset if they found out. But I was also flattered that she made the effort. I definitely was not seeing the same person the other women saw. ...Tierra definitely had the edge on Jackie going into the date, but I was still very open-minded. When it came time to make the decision on who gets the rose it was pretty obvious that Tierra was my girl. Keep in mind, I had no idea that the other women disliked her so much! I knew she had a hard time fitting in, but I wasn't privy to the fact that she was simply not nice to the other girls. Things would've been different if I had seen those actions."
How far will Tierra go in the competition?
