The competition steamed up on Monday night's episode of "The Bachelor" as contestant Rozlyn Papa was sent home.
Rozlyn's prospects were looking good when "Bachelor" Jake Pavelka gave her the first rose of the episode after she kissed him passionately on a group date. She was so confident that at one point in the episode, she told the camera, "I don't have to worry about whether I'm going to stay or not because I have a rose, biatch."
The model and mom also confessed to the camera, "I'm not usually competitive ... but I'm not usually in the position of having to fight off other women," following that up with, "If somebody gets in my way, I'll kick 'em. Hard."
After an episode that included a one-on-one date between Ali and Jake (complete with a private performance by the music group Chicago), and a second group date that saw Elizabeth as the receiver of the rose, it was time for a dramatic cocktail party and rose ceremony.
As the girls were making their bids to Jake to keep them around, "Bachelor" host Chris Harrison asked Rozlyn if he could speak to her privately.
He took her outside and said, "So, this is something we've never had to deal with in the history of the show."
"What's that?" Rozlyn replied.
"I am very sorry that we have to have this conversation, it's very awkward. I'm guessing you have some idea why I pulled you aside. Rozlyn, you entered into an inappropriate relationship with one of our staffers. That staffer is no longer working with us. Okay," Chris said.
Rozlyn replied, "Okay."
"Because of what happened, we feel it's now impossible to then now form a meaningful relationship with Jake. Out of respect for everybody here, the girls, Jake, yourself," Chris told Rozlyn.
Rozlyn responded, "So you think that there's no other girls here that felt for other people before they came on the show?"
"No, not at all, 'cause it wasn't a relationship you had back home. It wasn't a boyfriend that you broke up with and then came on the show to start anew. It's something that just happened on our show with someone who works on the show," Chris said.
"I mean I don't think that my personal life is really anybody's business," Rozlyn replied.
"This is something that we take incredibly serious for everybody on the show. And we feel that there was a line that was crossed with our staffer," Chris said.
"I'm not going to say anything that puts me in a bad position," Rozlyn responded.
"And again, I'm not sitting here in judgment of you. Nobody is. We're not saying it was wrong, it was something that happened, and it's something that now unfortunately has to be dealt with," Chris said.
"Okay," Rozlyn said.
"The bottom line is this," Chris asserted. "We feel because of what's happened, it 's impossible for you to continue on the show. Does that make sense, too, because that's important, too."
"No, it makes sense. Okay, I respect that," Rozlyn said.
"Okay, and we feel that you need to leave tonight. I know you received a rose, so obviously you're not packed," Chris told Rozlyn, who replied, "Correct."
"So, go pack your stuff, and then, there's a van waiting for you," Chris said.
"Okay," Rozlyn replied, "I mean I don't think it was anything that was deceitful, or anything like that. I think it just..."
"Happened," Chris finished for her.
"I guess so. Yeah," Rozlyn replied, before going to pack her belongings.
When Jake was told of the news, he appeared angry, saying, "I don't really know what to say, I'm just really disappointed. … Can I get my rose back?"
The other girls weren't happy about hearing the news either. For her part, Ella hoped that Jake wouldn't put up a wall after being disappointed by the Rozlyn situation.
In the end, Jake was able to take his rose back so that he could choose another girl to replace Rozlyn. At the end of the rose ceremony, 12 girls were left standing: Ali, Elizabeth, Vienna, Gia, Tenley, Ella, Valishia, Corrie, Jessie, Ashleigh, Michelle and Kathryn.
"The Bachelor" airs on Monday nights on ABC.
