'The Bachelor' season 23 review: Fans happy that Demi Burnett is gone, but has honesty paid the price?

This decision of Colton Underwood, if you ask me, was the best he's ever made this season. Not just because Demi stirs up unwanted drama, but because he did not lead her on.


                            'The Bachelor' season 23 review: Fans happy that Demi Burnett is gone, but has honesty paid the price?

This season of The Bachelor is churning out drama by the dozen and Colton Underwood is at the center of it all. Besides the drama, we can also see some beautiful romance unfolding. The only setback is that we don't get to see all of it.

In episode 6 that aired on Monday, the drama was minimal but they surely made up for it by throwing those surprises our way. Though previously Underwood was not really earning the fans' love, they are currently cheering him on his decision to send Demi Burnett home within the first half of the episode.

Falling in love with this bean bag like I’m falling in love with Colton 💞#thebachelor

Underwood spent quite some time having a steamy romance session with Hannah Godwin. He also had his first one on one date with Kripa Sudick. After his date with Sudick, the atmosphere changed when it came to Underwood and Burnett. When Underwood returned after his date with Sudick, Burnett walked into his room. Though the scene made it seem like she was going to have sex with him, Burnett ended up revealing that she is falling in love with him. It must have been a punch in the guts for Burnett because sadly Underwood did not feel the same way about her and decided to call it quits. 

 



 

This decision of Underwood, if you ask me, was the best he's ever made this season. Not just because Burnett stirs up unwanted drama, but because he did not lead her on. Overall no matter what Underwood's decision might be, fans are really happy that she is gone. 

"lol, she went in there to try and bone him and got sent home. I wouldn’t laugh but those some terrible alligator tears," wrote a fan. While another added, "Hopefully she just learned that throwing yourself at a man is not conducive to a healthy relationship!"

ARE YOU READY FOR YOUR MONDAY DOSE OF DEMI??? #thebachelor

At the same time, I feel we have lost a genuine person. She may have been drama-prone but she was the only contestant who showed her true colors and went for what she wanted. She was feisty, wild and open about every move of hers and spoke what she had to. Whereas the other remaining contestants are playing it safe and talking behind the back of other contestants. You had Caelynn Keyes and Hannah Brown calling each other fake and even former contestants Onyeka and Nicole trying to figure out who is the biggest bully. Burnett, on the other hand, did not mess with the other contestants. She fought hard and kept trying as much as she could to get Underwood to like her.

Even though Burnett was eliminated in the middle of the episode that did not stop her from telling Underwood what she felt about other contestants. She told him to watch out because the other contestants are not here for the right reasons. Though currently, it feels vague, because we do not know who she is hinting at, eventually we might get to know if Burnett was right all this while.

But fans did mention they would be happy to see her as the next bachelorette or in 'Bachelor in Paradise.' "She a better fit for paradise than the Bachelor. She needed to go a long time ago. YAY!!!!" revealed one fan. While another added, "They should bring Demi back as the next bachelorette." 

The departure of Burnett was not the only shocking part about Monday's episode. Along with Burnett Onyeka, Nicole, Katie and Syndey were also sent home packing. 

'The Bachelor' airs on ABC every Monday. Check your local listings for more information.
