It wasn't a hair-pulling, drag-down catfight on Monday night's "The Bachelor," but there was a lot of drama when Melissa Schreiber and Raichel Goodyear got into an argument. Now, ET talks to Melissa to find out what was going on and if she thinks it was fair of Brad Womack to send them both home.
"Rachel had something against me from the moment I got in the house," Melissa says. "There was not a day that went by that she was not verbally attacking me. She would come up later and apologize for it and tell me she was sorry and stressed out. Then, she would do it all over again. There was always drama with the two of us on-and-off camera."
And even though she wishes she had more time to get to know "The Bachelor" better, Melissa feels Brad was right to send both her and Raichel home.
"It is hard for me to even completely comprehend it," she adds. "If you ask anybody that knows me, I don't have any enemies at all. I get along very well with everyone. I am very non-confrontational. What the viewers got to see was me on the final day, defending myself and becoming emotional because for a week straight I was enduring this Raichel abuse. I just don't even know. I can't tell you what it stemmed from. I guess I just rubbed her the wrong way."
One thing the 32-year-old from Westport, CT does believe is that Brad is not the same man as his last go-round on "The Bachelor" when he did not present a final rose to either DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Cooney.
"I do think he has changed," she says. "I wasn't there very long, but what I was able to see was a genuine guy. He really does seem to have everything together now. He seems to know what he is looking for."
And while it is early days for the dating game, Melissa does pick five women she feels are in it for the right reasons.
"Emily is a sweetheart. I think she is completely genuine. I don't think she is playing the game to play the game. I think she is definitely there for the right reasons. She would be my first pick. My second pick would be Shawntel, the funeral director. She is a very genuine person. My third pick would be Ashley H.. She is the one who had the one-on-one date at the carnival. Jackie, who had the one-on-one date where they heard Train play live, is a genuine, sweet girl from what I was able to see. The last person I think was there for the right reasons and, whether she made it far because she a little shy, was Lindsey H. I think she was very genuine."
"The Bachelor" airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. on ABC.
