Like most of the women on 'The Bachelor', Sydney Hightower has her own sad backstory but Bachelor Nation fans don't seem to be buying it.

On their first one on one date, after Peter Weber called her "mysterious", Sydney put all her cards on the table. She opened up about how she's barely ever met her dad after her parents separated. Then, she went on to tell Peter about how she was bullied in high school.  

"Does Sydney think the whinyness ALL THE TIME is cute?? It’s getting a little old," tweeted a fan, while another said, "Oh Sydney didn’t get to go to prom and it was hard #thebachelor" A third one said, "If Sydney went through all of this when she was little then why on Earth would she treat Alayah & Tammy like that?! She clearly hasn't learned anything from her past & is perpetuating the bullying cycle. Sorry but I don't empathize with her. #TheBachelor"

Sydney was the center of all the drama after she went on to show her genuine intentions for Peter by letting him know that Alayah B. was fake. Fans believe that she was the actual "pot stirrer". Many compared her story to the iconic chick flick 'Mean Girls'. "Producers actually find proof Sydney was the bully in high school... would you be surprised? #TheBachelor," tweeted a fan. Another said, "These are kids. Sydney still stuck in high school at 24 year old. Damn b****. You become the same person your bullies were. I’m over her #TheBachelor"

Since Alayah didn't really have a problem with Sydney, many fans believe that Sydney did stroke the Alayah drama on purpose, to get her out of the competition. "Must be where Sydney gets her bullying from. #thebachelor" tweeted one fan. Another said, "Sydney if you were supposedly bUlLiEd sO mUcH in high school then why the hell are you such a damn bully?! I call BS #TheBachelor"
