Kacie is an administrative assistant from Clarksville, TN who joined The Bachelor season 16 to compete for Ben Flajnik. She lasted until the hometown dates episode, where she gave viewers a tearful, expletive-laced Bachelor exit meltdown. After her elimination, she returned on the show to warn Ben about fellow contestant Courtney, who ended up winning the season.
After learning that Sean Lowe would be the star of The Bachelor season 17, Kacie asked to be part of the show. She was then revealed to be Sean's mystery woman, also known as the 26th contestant of the season.
Kacie became part of
the first group date of season 17
, in which the girls had to compete in a photo shoot challenge. Though she did not win the challenge, Sean gave her a rose. In the third week of the competition, she claimed she feels like she's been "punched in the face" because she's friends with both Amanda and Desiree and feels stuck in the middle. However, Sean couldn't tell if she was being genuine and even described her as a crazy person. Kacie tried to smooth things over with Sean but
he sent her home right before the rose ceremony.
Kacie likes her man to be sensitive, goal-oriented and outgoing. On the other hand, she hates guys who are talkative and boring.
