Bachelor contestant Monica Spannbauer caused quite a stir with viewers when she appeared to come on to fellow contestant Blakeley the first night -- though, Monica explained in her conference call with the media yesterday, those were strictly "friendship" (and alcohol induced?) feelings and nothing more.
Whether you believe that explanation is up to you. Personally, I'm buying it, if only because Monica went on to be delightfully, hilariously candid in the rest of her answers. The 33-year-old dental consultant sort of faded into the background after her "bisexual" controversy that first week, so we didn't get the greatest sense of her personality. But she clearly got a sense of what the other contestants, and Ben, were like -- and she wasn't shy about spilling what she knew. Call me crazy, but if Monica felt comfortable calling this season's villain Courtney a "manipulative [...] weird duck" who's "absolutely wrong" for Ben and had to take four hour naps before every activity, I feel like she'd probably admit if she had a little one-night crush on a VIP cocktail waitress.
Check out what Monica had to say about Ben, Courtney, Kacie B. and the rest of the women on The Bachelor this season. She didn't hold back. And for that, I wish I could give her a rose.
