“The Bachelor” 2011 Recap 1/10 Episode – Eliminations
Keltie, Raichel, and Melissa were eliminated in week 2 of “The Bachelor.” Keltie worries she’ll never find love and Raichel said it’s just not her time yet. For obvious reasons Raichel and Melissa were let go because of their drama, but it’s not clear what there was about Keltie that made her go home. It may have had to do with her conversation with Ali and Roberto. Or, it could have just been he wasn’t as into her as the ones he gave a rose to and it’s that simple. She had a hard time taking the rejection, believing she’s not meant for love because she said she’s awkward in dating.
Was it worth Melissa giving up her job, spending a fortune on new clothes, and leaving everything behind just so Brad would notice her on the show?
