‘Bachelor’ Fans React to Alayah’s Elimination — Whose Side Are They On?
The pageant queen stirred the pot during the episode’s group date at the Cowboy Palace Saloon, where the women joined Demi’s “Pillow Fight Club.” During the date, Sydney noticed Alayah acting one way around the women and another way around Peter Weber, which irritated her.
However, rather than keep it to herself, in true Bachelor fashion, Sydney decided to confront Peter about the beauty queen and shared her concerns. Needless to say, Peter was taken aback by the comments, as he was connecting with Alayah, and decided to bring the group date together to discuss the drama.
Later in the episode, Peter decided to have a pool party in order to ask the other women in the house about Alayah. After hours of going back and forth, Peter sent the controversial contestant home during the rose ceremony, but he immediately regretted the decision the second she left the mansion.
In fact, Peter pulled a producer aside at the end of the episode and revealed he didn’t feel good about his decision.
“I thought that was the right thing to do,” he said. Then, in the preview for next week, it looks like he decides to bring Texas gal back into the group.
Needless to say, Bachelor Nation fans had a lot of feelings about Alayah and Peter’s decision to let her go.. for the time being. While some people believe she’s two-faced, others think she may be getting a bad edit.

is it just my boyfriend who acts like I’m torturing by having him watch the bachelor with me and then he’s screaming at the tv by the end of the episode telling Peter to send Alayah home or is that everyone’s boyfriend

Me explaining to my friends who are new to #TheBachelor that policing people’s reasons for being on the show is the biggest form of self-sabotage and that Sydney is as much trouble as Alayah bc girls only do that when they have something to hide pic.twitter.com/rcTSEpui59

Alayah herself responded to the backlash on Twitter and revealed there was a lot of footage that wasn’t aired. “Just a reminder to everyone… There is about 1,200 hours of footage from Bachelor filming. In total you’re seeing maybe 20 hours this whole season. there’s a lot you don’t see.”
