Krystal is a 30-year-old fitness coach from Missoula, MT, who currently resides in San Diego, CA.
Krystal likes to speak her mind and challenge Arie, all the while hoping for some extra attention. Krystal's strategy is working so far, but the other bachelorettes believe she is fake and disingenuous, and Bekah Martinez is even questioning why she's still on the show.
Arie felt most connected to Krystal ever since he brought her home to Scottsdale, AZ, but he took two steps back when Krystal had a little temper tantrum during the group date in Fort Lauderdale. Krystal joked with a smile they were having their first fight, but an unamused Arie noted with a straight face it may be their last.
Will Arie keep Krystal around despite her controversial antics? Until Bachelor Nation finds out, let's learn more about her.
