Becca kicked off her journey to find a fiance on Monday night, and tension quickly settled into the air between Chris Randone, a 30-year-old sales trainer from Orlando, FL, and Chase Vergason, a 27-year-old advertising vice president from Sanford, FL, at the cocktail party.
"Now if I'm being completely honest, I still don't know the full extent of the issue, but it's a lot of he said he said going on," Becca wrote in her People blog.
Chris accused Chase of going on The Bachelorette for the wrong reasons after receiving a text message during the taping of The Bachelor: After the Final Rose -- when Chase was shown meeting Becca for the first time -- from his pal.
The pal just so happens to be Chase's ex, and the woman alleged Chase was only interested in hanging out with his boys and revamping his marketing company.
During an awkward three-way confrontation with Becca, Chase argued he had dated the girl in question for only two weeks about two years ago. Chase didn't want such a fling to jeopardize his chances with a great girl like Becca, but Chris didn't seem convinced of Chase's story.
"I was dizzy listening to Chase scramble to explain himself, and I don't know the whole story, but it had the distinct rhythm and cadence of BS," wrote the feisty 28-year-old publicist from Minneapolis, MN.
Once the first Rose Ceremony of Season 14 commenced, Becca decided to give Chris a rose, probably because of his claim he was only trying to protect her heart. Chase, however, got the boot and was frustrated Chris ruined his shot with The Bachelorette star.
"In my mind, I had a great group of guys who I felt were here to really want to get to know me, so I didn't feel the need to keep someone around who was already laced with drama," Becca explained of her decision to cut Chase from the running for her heart.
"To be blunt, I wanted to shed the fat as quickly as possible."
Becca also surprisingly denied Jake Enyeart, a 29-year-old marketing consultant from Minneapolis, MN, a rose on Night 1.
Jake is from Becca's hometown, and she says they met multiple times before The Bachelorette started filming. Since Jake never made a move in the real world, Becca suspected Jake was on the show with poor intentions as well.
"We run in the same circles... But I'd at least like to think that he'd remember me even just a little bit! And if I was so unmemorable in a small group of people, then why now? Is it because I'm the Bachelorette?" Becca recalled thinking of Jake, who only remembered meeting Becca once in the past.
"Because I didn't want to start off the first night questioning any man's motives, I decided to send him home early even before the Rose Ceremony. While I'm 100 percent certain I made the right choice to do it then and there, it was more difficult than I initially thought to send someone home, especially early."
Well if that isn't a strong, independent woman, I don't know what is!
