Really? They either have some crystal ball that they stole from the devil, or they have to be lying. The first time anyone saw me on TV was for a grand total of two seconds. Barely heard me sing. You couldn’t really see me, either, because I was hiding behind some hat that I got at Old Navy before the audition. I thought it would make me look cool. (BTW… it didn’t.) – Read the rest at Yahoo Music

The Bachelor’s Ben Higgins Blogs About His ‘Most Difficult Decision’ So Far – That said, this was the first night I was really starting to feel the tension in the group with Olivia and the other women. Especially with her interrupting Emily to have a second conversation with me. It was also the first time I had seen Olivia anything less than poised and confident.

But everyone has off nights, and it’s part of growing together so I wasn’t reading too much into it. – Read more at People.com
