Krystal is a 30-year-old fitness coach from Missoula, MT, who currently resides in San Diego, CA.
Krystal received a memorable one-on-one date with Arie early in the season in which the Bachelor brought her home to explore Scottsdale, AZ. Not only did Krystal meet Arie's dog Bastian, but she also met his parents, younger brother and sister-in-law.
Krystal became "a smitten kitten" with Arie on their first date, and ever since then, she's become a bit protective and possessive of him.
Krystal believes her connection with Arie surpasses what any of the other bachelorettes could possibly have with him, and she has referred to the other girls as "juvenile" and "obnoxious."
The blonde beauty's competition, however, views her as "condescending," "fake" and "two-faced," and the majority of girls seem to think she's not on the show for Arie. It will be interesting to see what opinion Arie forms of Krystal once he learns more about the drama that surrounds her.
