Last night's 'Bachelor' was definitely an emotional one for Arie and the women. Arie made a lot of very hard decisions. Unfortunately for Arie, fans are outraged at Arie for sending Bekah M home from the group date.
Bekah M's heart was shattered as she watched Arie give the final rose to Tia. As he walked Bekah M to the car, his voiceover explained his decision:
"I have been talking myself out of being with Bekah for a long time. It’s hard because I don’t see our lives fitting together, but I really, really liked her."
It probably didn't help that Tia and the rest of the women planted doubts in his head regarding her age.
Bekah was very heartbroken and broke down in the car:
"It’s hard for me to accept that this is over — that this journey is over for me."
Social media erupted in a fit of rage over the decision. Many questioned his decision to keep Bekah K, Lauren, Tia and Kendall over Bekah M. The general consensus of Tweeters, Facebookers, Instagrammers, Snapchatters, and more want to petition for Bekah M to be the next Bachelorette.
Producers have not responded to the mass of tweets, asking them to consider Bekah M for Bachelorette.
My Two Cents
I wasn't a fan of Arie's decision either, but I saw this coming. It was obvious that he was going to give the rose to Tia.
I am a fan of Bekah M's because she is one of the most poised young people that has ever been on the show, and at 22, she has given a lot of her older peers a run for their money.
I am disappointed in Arie for not having faith in Bekah M. I think she should be given a second chance at finding love. She would make an adorable Bachelorette! Producers should seriously consider her.
If you think Bekah M should be the next Bachelorette, tweet #BekahForBachelorette!
