[Warning: There are Bachelor season 24, episodes 3 and 4 spoilers ahead—read at your own risk!]
- After being told that contestant Alayah Benavidez wasn’t being real with him, Peter Weber eliminated her at the third rose ceremony.
- However, it looks like she might be coming back...
Update, February 4:
And just like that, Alayah was sent home, again! But this time, she didn't even make it to the next rose ceremony because Peter sent her home because it was all just "too much."
Update, January 28:
Welp, that didn’t last long. It looks like Peter really did regret sending Alayah home, because he let her come back on the show, much to the dismay of the other girls.
“You kind of let yourself, in a way, get manipulated by letting the girls all give their opinion about me to you, and I didn’t really have the chance to even defend myself because I was so blindsided,” Alayah said to Peter.
After Alayah told Peter her side of the story, Peter invited her to come back on the condition that she is honest with him going forward. Alayah wins a rose (ho hum), so it seems like she might be here to stay for good? Maybe??? After being on the show for 0.5 seconds, Alayah stirred up drama about Victoria F. and her drama with Chase Rice, so who knows—she could always get sent home again. Yet another reason I’m tuning in next week!
Original Story, January 20:
Wow guys, Peter Weber’s season is BRINGING IT with the content—first we got two episodes with Hannah Brown cameos, then we got a bottle of champagne exploding on contestant Kelsey Weier’s face, and tonight was all about the beauty queen drama. And even though it looked like we had seen the last of Alayah Benavidez, aka former Miss Texas, it seems like that might not be the case after all!
After Peter eliminates Alayah during a very intense rose ceremony (Chris Harrison comes in to take away one of the roses dramatically), he pulls aside a producer and tells her that he has regrets about letting Alayah go. He doesn’t know if he made the right choice and worries that he’s going to regret it “like crazy” and that he won’t get past her going home “for a while.” “I thought that was the right thing to do,” he says. “But I don’t know right now. I just hope I made the right decision.”
THEN during teasers for next week’s episode, who shows back up during a group date but Alayah, who saunters in and announces, “I’m here to freaking set the record straight about what was said about me.” And FYI, the things said about her presumably refer to most of the other contestants saying that she was fake/Victoria P. telling Peter that Alayah asked her to lie about them knowing each other.
So, I guess this leads me to ask: Do we think that Alayah will be rejoining Peter and the other contestants on their journey to ~lurve~?
