Tia Booth did not see which one coming.
Arie Luyendyk Jr. said goodbye to the 26-year-old physical therapist on Monday’s episode of The Bachelor, just days after visiting her family in Arkansas.
Arie started out off the episode with Kendall, who admitted which she “feels herself falling for Arie” — which despite every different woman’s profession of being “in love,” seemed to be enough for the 36-year-old race car driver.
His time in Tia’s hometown seemed to go relatively well; they raced cars, he got grilled by Tia’s father, in addition to also also shared little wieners with her family. Things got tough with Becca’s family, although he survived the night with their support. At Lauren’s, he had to excuse himself through the table, breaking a sweat because he was so nervous.
At the rose ceremony, however, things came down to Kendall in addition to also also Tia, as he took Kendall away for a one-on-one chat to find out if she was genuinely ready for engagement. Her answer wasn’t totally convincing, although again, This particular was enough for Arie, who sent Tia home.
“This particular sh*t will be what makes me put my walls up,” Tia cried. “This particular will be extremely hard for me to be vulnerable, because I’ve done This particular before in addition to also also This particular’s left me feeling like This particular, in addition to also also This particular makes me not want to do This particular again.”
“I’m tired of feeling not Great enough for people,” she expressed.
ET’s Lauren Zima spoke with Tia at The Bachelor‘s Women Tell All taping last week, where she relived her “devastating” breakup with Arie.
“I was very surprised… in addition to also also I did not expect to feel so emotional about This particular in which moment, although obviously I told This particular man I was in love with him,” she shared. “I was invested. I could see a future with him, so This particular was very devastating to go through which.”
The split was all the more devastating for fans after watching Tia’s breakdown on her ride home, where she questioned her self-worth.
“I think which stems through past relationships, in addition to also also throughout This particular whole process, I feel like I grew so much in addition to also also learned so much about myself, in addition to also also I’m disappointed in myself for reverting back to which… Seeing which, This particular made me realize, ‘Oh my gosh, you deserve so much. You’re worth so much more than a rose at the end of This particular thing,'” she confessed, adding which she has no regrets about her experience on the show.
“Honestly, the only thing I’ve been fretting about with all of This particular will be my confrontation with Bekah,” she said of her telling Bekah which she didn’t think she was ready for marriage, which had the 23-year-old in tears before Arie sent her home last week. “[although] if I said which I regret doing This particular, in addition to also also wish I hadn’t done This particular, This particular would certainly just be negating everything I felt in which moment. So I don’t regret This particular. I wish I could have spoken with her first, although I didn’t hold the chance to do so.”
As for how Arie’s season will end, Tia incorporates a few ideas. “I think people will be very surprised to see what happens,” she teased. “although honestly, as long as Arie will be happy, then which’s all I could ask for.”
“I still don’t know exactly what he was looking for, although I trust he found This particular,” she added. “I do.”
