'The Bachelor' season 23: Fans blame show's producers for axing Kripa Sudick's accident clip from Monday's episode
In the deleted scene clip, Kripa Sudick revealed that she was standing in front of the ocean, trying to click a picture of the sunset when she lost her footing and slipped.
The weekend is here, which means just two days more for 'The Bachelor' season 23 to air. While we wait to see what drama episode 6 has for us, there is a lot that we witnessed on Monday in episode 5 alone.
We had Heather Martin receive her first kiss from Colton Underwood and that too on the most romantic date ever. Colton was extra lucky in the romance department because he also went on a one-on-one date with Cassie Randolph and he even admitted how much he liked her. And how could an episode be without drama? For that, we have Elyse Dehlbom to thank. Elyse announced she was quitting the show and leaving the bachelor mansion because she decided that this format is not for her.
Apart from all this, we also did notice, Kripa Sudick walk around Thailand with a bandage on her chin, leaving fans and viewers wondering why Sudick sported a bandaged chin and why the producers did not show anything about it throughout the episode. But after it aired, on Tuesday, 'The Bachelor's' social media page uploaded a video and revealed what happened to Sudick and how she injured herself.
In the deleted scene clip, Sudick revealed that she was standing in front of the ocean, trying to click a picture of the sunset. But what she forgot to notice was that it had just rained a little while ago, which left the rocks all slippery and wet. Sudick revealed that she stepped on the rock and lost her footing. While she tried to land on her hand and not get hurt, she couldn't do so and she ended up hurting her chin instead.
Thanks for joining us on #TheBachelor tonight! We heard you were wondering about Kirpa’s bandage, so check our socials tomorrow for a bonus scene! 😉— The Bachelor (@BachelorABC) February 5, 2019
Due to the fall, Sudick ended up with five stitches on her chin and a sprained arm. Following the reveal, fans ended up being angry with the producers of the show for cutting out her scene from the show. This is not the first time that the producers have deleted a really good scene from the show. Previously they deleted Nina Bartula's heartfelt introduction during the premiere. Following that they deleted another emotional scene of Courtney Curtis and Colton when she faced her fear of water.
This is the third time that the producers have deleted a good scene and the fans and viewers are not letting it go that easily. "She has such a great personality and she never gets screen time. Come on producers, do better. Instead we got 87 mins of sexy time with Colton and Cassie!" wrote a fan. While another added, "If Cassie was in the hospital, there would have been airtime and a rose. ::removes Kirpa from bracket::."
Many fans also added that instead of showing Colton and Randolph just making out and not talking much, they should have at least aired it because it was a good plot. They were also put off by the fact that Colton was not there with Sudick in the hospital. Stating that if it was Randolph in that situation he would have made it to the hospital and stood by her side.
Though fans were angry with the producers, they showered their love on Sudick, appreciating her for not being a drama queen, and stating that they like her more now. "Okay so clearly she didn’t make a big deal of it and call Colton and use it to milk time out of him. That’s prob why it didn’t make the show. But dang... I like her so much more for not being a drama queen!" said a fan.
