Brittney Schreiner departed last week’s episode of The Bachelor, after talking to Ben Flajnik and telling him and the other ladies that her heart wasn’t in the show. In case you’ve missed the show, you can read the entire recap here.
On the show, Brittney received a date card from Ben for their one-on-one date. She said that she was surprised that she even got the card, and was having doubts. She claimed at the time that she made a promise to herself that if her heart wasn’t in it, then she would go home. Brittney interrupted Ben’s one-on-one time with Blakely and told him that she was leaving.
In a new interview, Brittney opened up about her decision to leave the show. She said, “I think because my heart wasn’t in it, I wasn’t as excited as the other girls and I wasn’t being as aggressive.”
She revealed that she realized it “right after the second rose ceremony” and referred to it as a “hard decision” to make. She said, “It was a completely selfless act, but I wanted the best for Ben.”
When she was asked why she didn’t give it a chance when she had the shot with a one-on-one date with him, she said, “You know, I thought about that and that is exactly why I was torn in the process…But there was something that just didn’t feel right and my heart wasn’t in it and I wanted to be upfront with Ben.”
She continued, “I wanted to be honest that I didn’t think we were connecting on that level and I could’ve gone, but I didn’t want to take that opportunity away from one of the girls that was connecting with Ben. So I just thought I could do a very selfless act and make the harder decision and let him continue on with his search with someone that he was obviously connecting with.”
Despite all of that, she would come back on the show, if it would afford her the opportunity to hook up with Brad Womack. She added, “If I was given the opportunity, I would.” She revealed that she was “really drawn” to him, after watching him on the last season of the show.
She added, “I think there’s just something there that I’m drawn to, so he would have to be my only pick as of now.”
Do you think she and Brad would make a good couple?
