When the rose comes out, it doesn't go in the way of Krystal. #The Bachelorpic.twitter.com/x I7o Y6QT8N— Justin Kirkland (@justinkirkland4) February 6, 2018Most Likely to Succeed Kendall, who was easy to write off with all her sweet taxidermy talk, rose to the occasion on the Paris two-on-one date.With Krystal playing mad mind games on her, she leaned on the most powerful weapon of all: sincere kindness.Arie decides that he doesn't have enough information, so he pushes his decision to dinner. " She and Arie take off in a car and go shopping in Paris for her one-on-one, and the whole thing is unfortunate because she is well-spoken and pretty funny, and you know this can't last too long.Later, Krystal tries to explain her way out of the conversation, but Kendall maintains all composure. Every season there's a seemingly great girl who appears five weeks in, and you're like, "Who's that? But in the end, Arie gives her a rose and keeps her around, which is great... I'm super happy because I want good things for Jacqueline, but I also hope she loses because I want good things for Jacqueline.
The team goes to Paris this week for FOUR dates: two one-on-ones, a group date, and a two-on-one that finally wraps up what seemed like a never-ending hell-scape of a plot point. Maybe it's that they have to carry the date for both Arie and herself. Either way, when she and Arie end up at a street market, you can't help but notice that the date is painfully, awkwardly quiet. In response, Lauren reveals she was engaged once, and if you're reading this and thinking "those aren't similar stories," you're totally right.
When she gets back to Krystal, she very calmly tells her that she needs to let go of her hurt and insecurity because she's a good person who has just lost track of how to be good.
