'The Bachelorette': Tayshia feels like the luckiest girl in the world as Ben strips, fans say it's 'creepy AF'
'Ben took the challenge literally and drew the most childish picture and panicked and took off all his clothes,' a fan commented
'The Bachelorette' has always been known for dreaming up interesting group dates, which happened in this week's episode too. Tayshia Adams thought it would be nice to give art a chance to help all express themselves better. There were a few rounds, first of which was about nude art, where the suitors had to live paint a nude couple standing in front of them. Next, they were asked to use clay and blindfolds to create what their hearts pleased. Lastly, the men were tasked to make art that would represent the best versions of themselves.
While most were able to touch Tayshia's heart by their art, Ben Smith drove her to tears. She was overwhelmed and couldn't imagine someone would dare to be so vulnerable in front of the cameras and especially her. She says the art class with the men made her feel like the "luckiest girl" in the world. She teared up when Ben decided to drop his robes, go completely naked to express himself fully.
Meanwhile, fans thought it was a "creepy" move and it felt like Ben could be the kind who would sent "unsolicited dick pic in middle school." "Ben creepy af," a fan commented on a Reddit thread, while another shared: "Lmao Ben took the challenge literally and drew the most childish picture and panicked and took off all his clothes. That’s just so funny to me." "Why do I feel like Ben was the guy who sent you that unsolicited d**k pic in middle school," yet another user pointed out.
"Ben heard everyone else’s painting and was like let me just get naked," a user posted on the show's Facebook official page while another expressed: "Ben used to be my favourite, but he’s starting to give me a creepy vibe. To me, getting naked like that was kind of like an unsolicited d!ck pic."
"Ben omg, you can't Express yourself with words, but you take off your clothes....to represent what Exactly?? That you have an eggplant??? You are going home buddy. Soo sad...i thought he'll get further," a user wrote.
