Bachelor Nation rejoiced when Krystal Nielson was sent home on last week's episode of The Bachelor. However, it seems fans are just now realizing that the fitness coach with a very divisive voice was literally the most entertaining part of Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season.
So what happened to Krystal? Well, the 30-year-old beauty was sent home following a two-on-one date between herself and taxidermy lover Kendall Long. At the time, viewers applauded the former race car driver for making the right choice, relationship-wise. However, when it comes to reality TV drama, it was not the right choice.
Confession: I ACTUALLY MISS KRYSTAL. #thebachelor🌹— Kelly (@KellyEmerald) February 13, 2018
Jacqueline's rose should've went to Krystal. Would've loved to see her one more week. Think about the fans, Arie. #thebachelor— Ryan P Stefaniak (@iWearAsics) February 13, 2018
I hated Krystal but I gotta say this show is way more boring without her #TheBachelor— Whitney Borisenok (@wborisenok) February 13, 2018
"No Krystal, no Chelsea, now they're scraping the bottom of the barrel here for drama with Jacqueline. This is literally the most boring season of all time. We have hit rock bottom," one fan tweeted before another added, "Kind of miss Krystal making a fool out of herself."
A third chimed in, "With Krystal gone, I guess we will have to tweet about the actual relationships." While we definitely didn't think Krystal was "wife material" — we agree with fans and kind of miss this season's villain. In an exclusive interview with Life & Style, her friends revealed that Krystal is nothing like the persona we saw on the popular ABC show.
“I’ve never seen that side of her,” her friend said. “What she’s portrayed as isn’t who she is in real life. She’s not a villain! I can tell just from talking to her, she’s really upset about this season. I’m 100 percent sure she’s devastated.”
The pal added, "I warned Krystal the producers can edit her any way they want. I’m positive she never wanted to be the villain.” However, Krystal doesn't seem too worried about her villain status. "NO ONE can steal my sparkle," she recently captioned a photo on Instagram. There's always hope she'll make her comeback on Bachelor in Paradise...
