Olivia's Teen Mom Comment About Amanda On 'The Bachelor' Was Completely Uncalled For
With the comfort of a group date rose fueling her brazenness, Olivia made a Teen Mom joke at Amanda's expense while Amanda was explaining her kids' custody arrangement to another contestant who had asked about it.
"I feel like this is an episode of Teen Mom," Olivia scoffed as Amanda explained the frequency with which her ex-husband gets to see their two daughters. And that was not in any way OK.
Olivia seemed to have it out for Amanda the entire episode, ever since the mom of two had been chosen for the first one-on-one date in Mexico City. Upon learning Ben picked Amanda for a solo date, Olivia right away started in on her identity as a mom, boldly and arrogantly declaring that she didn't believe a mother and a divorcée was the right match for Ben. Olivia then pointed out that, if things worked out with Ben and Amanda, he'd immediately be a step-dad to two small girls, which Olivia grimaced at, in spite of the fact that Ben has yet to take issue with idea himself.
Even though she had snagged a group date rose earlier in the episode, Olivia still felt the need to lash out at Amanda for her earlier boon in getting a one-on-one date with Ben. In spite of her sweet nature, Amanda had no problem telling Olivia how she felt about the comment.
"I'm just a little confused," Amanda responded. "Like I don't really understand you. Isn't it common sense not to tell someone that they remind you of a Teen Mom episode?"
"First of all," Amanda continued in a cutaway interview, "I was 22 when I had my first, and I was 24 when I had my second. I'm an adult. I have my sh*t together. Like, that was not a very nice thing to say to somebody."
The only thing on this show that relates to an episode of teen mom is Olivia acting like a fourteen year old #TheBachelor— ashley cedeño (@CedenoK22) February 2, 2016
Yes, Olivia, they know what Teen Mom is. They just didn't think you were funny. #TheBachelor— Modern Magnolias (@ModernMagnolias) February 2, 2016
The exchange triggered a chain of events that may ultimately lead to Ben revoking Olivia's group date rose, but you'll have to stay tuned to next week's episode to find out her fate.
