If You're Still Reeling From The Bachelor, You Need to Read Olivia's Most Recent Response
Love her, or just love to hate her, Olivia has made this season of The Bachelor totally worth watching. Mega spoiler alert if you haven't seen the latest episode, but Ben finally sent her home . . . right after she told him that she loved him. And by "sent her home" I mean "left her on a small island to swim her way back to the mainland." It was the best cut since Farmer Chris flew away in a helicopter, leaving Ashley and Kelsey on a bed in the desert. In any case, Olivia (last name Caridi) at least has enough of a sense of humor to tweet about her heartbreak.
And here's her follow-up Instagram:
So I'd like to thank my best friend @rachelantigua for renting a kayak and picking me up on the island in the Bahamas. It was very cold out there for a while, I just made a tent with some of the rocks near the blowhole and slept near some sea crabs and turtles for comfort and friendship. I caught fish with my hands for meals. It was very difficult. But my friend just anchored near the shore days later and we floated back to the mainland during sunset. It was idyllic. But for real -- thank you to the lovers and supporters, both friends and strangers, who have reached out. I am eternally grateful. For the haters, you've made me stronger than ever before. The girls on this show see your comments and they have feelings. Think twice before sending an insensitive message. Words hurt, and they kill, too. Don't be mean behind the screen. #AntiBullyingMonth This has been one of the most interesting experiences of my life. I've learned a lot about myself. Good things and tough lessons. We're all human. We make mistakes. Learn from them. Let them make you wiser. Be imperfect, flawed, and quirky. And own it. Never trade your authenticity for approval. Don't be afraid to stand alone. Anyway, rant over. Can't wait for adventures ahead!
