'The Bachelor' host Chris Harrison: Tierra LiCausi is "sincere"
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/18/2013
The Bachelor bachelorette Tierra LiCausi has been deemed the girl on this season who's manipulative, deceiving and on the show for the wrong reasons, but host Chris Harrison is insisting she actually had good intentions.
"People will think [the way she acts is] fake or it's made up. It's not. This is how she goes about finding a man. Once you shine a light on it and put a camera on it, it's not attractive, but that's how she does it."
LiCausi, whom The Bachelor star Sean Loweeliminated during last week's broadcast due to her constant emotional meltdowns and ability to stir up drama, is currently engaged and bragging about it. Because rumors are flying the bachelorette's engagement could be just another ploy for attention, Harrison is apparently excited to get to the bottom of it.
"I can't wait to talk to her next week at the Women Tell All," Harrison said. "It's not to back the bus over her. I kind of want to know what she sees."
Although LiCausi certainly stood out for her antics this season, Harrison told People he couldn't rate her standing amongst the franchise's "all time Bachelor villains" because they're all so different.
"She was her own character so I don't think I can rank them," he added. "I think it's the way she went out [that] put the cherry on top when she said, 'No one's gonna take my sparkle away.' You just can't top that."
