amber tierney bachelor 'Bachelor's' Amber Tierney: Jenna was 'a hot mess'Amber Tierney from Nebraska was one of the first seven girls eliminated on “The Bachelor’s” two-hour premiere Monday night (Jan. 2). She agrees with our assessment that it was a bit surprising she went home.

On deciding to do “The Bachelor”:

“I kinda did it on a whim. One of my friends is a huge fan of the

show … I didn’t know if I really wanted to, and she kind of

talked me into it.”

On her going home:

“I was a little surprised. I was a little bit disappointed as well

just because I did see that Jenna had gotten a rose. It kind of

made me question Ben’s choices, but then I kind of realized she

was pretty fragile at that time.”

Speaking of Jenna …

“Personally, I kind of thought she was a little bit of a hot mess … I was pretty shocked with how upset that she did get. She was a

little emotionally unstable, but then again, it’s a really long

night of shooting and everyone’s tired and emotions can

definitely be a little more exaggerated in that situation … drinking is involved, she’d had a couple too many drinks as


On Ben’s favorites:

“Possibly [Courtney is] one of his favorites. I’m wondering if when he

gets to know her … she seemed a little cold to me. One of my favorites was actually Nicki, she’s from Texas, she was really cool. He also seemed to

have a connection with Kacie.”

“The Bachelor” airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
