OK, it’s important to note that this doesn’t mean that he loses his virginity. (Nice try, producers.) However, it is making us think twice about the self-proclaimed cougar.
Although Elyse and Underwood hit it off during their one-on-one date in episode three, they haven’t spent much time together since then. And while the trailer confirms they have physical chemistry, we think the drama has nothing to do with intimacy.
Why? First, Underwood has made it very clear how much he values his virginity. And second, the producers are practically pros at piecing together clips and creating dramatic scenarios that don’t exist, so we wouldn’t be surprised if Elyse’s “big mistake” just so happens to be a confession gone awry.
Did Elyse accidentally seal her fate? Or is that what the producers want us to think? Guess we’ll have to wait until The Bachelor returns to ABC next Monday, February 4, at 8 p.m.
