A lot of people online believe you would have chosen whomever proposed first. Do you have any thoughts on that?

I knew I was gonna say yes to Jimmy the night before. Jimmy was my last date before proposal day and we just had a conversation that I really needed to get from Jimmy. I wish they showed mine and Jimmy’s connection in the pods because it was so wonderful and beautiful. It was such a wonderful story, and they didn’t show it at all. I knew I was gonna say yes to Jimmy.

You don’t know who you’re gonna get first on proposal day. I could have had Trevor, I could have had Jimmy. So that was an emotional roller coaster on its own, but it wouldn’t have mattered. I would have broken up with Trevor the night before if I had the opportunity, but I didn’t.

In the teaser for next week’s episodes, you see Trevor in person for the first time. Did that moment change anything for you?

I love Trevor with all my heart. He’s wonderful. He’s a great human. He is exactly how he is on the show. He’s just this big old teddy bear. I’m grateful to have had the journey I had and it included him. I’m very grateful for that.

On TikTok, Jessica [who was also dating Jimmy in the pods] said you two are very good friends. Would you agree with that?

So how do you feel about Jessica’s conversation with Laura at the bar? [In episode eight, Jessica discusses her unresolved feelings about Jimmy before telling producers that seeing him would be like “dangling temptation right in his face.”]

Jessica has every right to feel the way she feels and she expressed how she was feeling. She had a very strong relationship with Jimmy and she had her emotions just like I do. I have every right to express how I’m feeling and she did too. So instead of getting upset about it or hurt about it or taking it offensively, like, just…let her talk.

You’ve responded to all the controversy with a lot of humor on social media, but how are you feeling emotionally?

It’s intense. It’s very intense, but I am so proud of how I am handling it. I’m handling it so well. I am using my humor to kind of get me along. It’s just so silly, the things that people get so mad about, and I’m just kind of riding it out.

In one TikTok response you let fans know you have a therapist. What have you learned from that?

As soon as we stopped filming, I went to therapy immediately. And I’m so grateful because I never was in therapy before and it’s so crucial. And I really want to shed light on how important therapy is.

On the show, I was very very insecure. It’s just such a weird journey that not a lot of people are understanding, like, of course there’s going to be insecurities. Of course there’s going to be doubt. You’re trying to figure out if you’re going to marry this person and, of course, your insecurities are heightened. Just like I said in my video, it’s just very intense and everything’s enhanced. So I’ve really learned so much about being insecure and kind of maneuvering that and managing that ’cause I am so competent and I know who I am as a person.
