bachelor tierra meltdown 'The Bachelor': Tierra, the 'scary hobo goblin,' writes Chris HarrisonTierra’s true colors are definitely showing on “The Bachelor.” Unfortunately, they are not showing yet for Sean, only for the other women and us viewers. Host Chris Harrison knows what’s up, though.

Harrison writes for EW:

As the date progressed to the evening cocktail party, things got a little intense. I’m not sure how Sean and Lindsay didn’t freak out when they walked out of that door to find Tierra crouched in the dark corner like a scary hobo goblin ready to pounce on them … Now, this move by Tierra could’ve gone one of two ways. Sean could’ve been annoyed and sent her packing, or do what he did and talk her off the cliff. Whether this was the right thing for him to do is debatable. Whether or not he got played is not debatable. Bottom line, Sean likes this girl and we all know that when we like someone we see past a lot and we tend to give people the benefit of the doubt. I imagine there will be much talk surrounding Tierra this week by all of you.

You go, Chris Harrison. Tierra is definitely a scary hobo goblin and she defnitely played Sean on last night’s episode.

Sean is a little nicer about it in his blog for People. He writes:

I remember having such a nice night before running into Tierra. I knew she was having a tough time with the other women and needed more reassurance than anyone else. What I didn’t know was how much the other women disliked her …

I don’t know what it was about Tierra, but I definitely felt a connection with her that goes back to the first night and I didn’t like seeing her upset. Once again, I did my best to reassure her of my feelings. I’ll admit my decision to give her the rose was a symbolic Band-Aid. I wanted Tierra to be happy and I wanted to fix whatever was wrong with her. Isn’t that what boyfriends are supposed to do? It was obviously a rash decision that was not received well by the other women. But please keep in mind I had not seen the Tierra they had.

So, when do you suppose Sean gets wise to Tierra’s antics? “The Bachelor” airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
