After the nuttiest hometown date in The Bachelor history, Naomi Crespo, 24, found herself out of the running for Jason Mesnick’s heart and on a plane home.

The flight attendant spoke to People about whether the dead dove was symbolic of her chances, her wacky folks and her pick for who will win The Bachelor ...

Q: Your hometown date was one for the books.

Naomi Crespo: It was embarrassing, oh my god. My mom is kinda out there. She obviously could not wait to make her television debut. I was apprehensive because I knew my mom had something up her sleeve. But I did not know it was going to be bringing out a dead bird and giving it a eulogy. That was so beyond me.

Jason Mesnick: [thinking] "Is this really happening?"

Q: Has your mom ever acted like that in front of your other boyfriends?

Naomi Crespo: My mom has met one serious boyfriend (my longest relationship), and obviously she has never done anything that crazy. My mom and I had a strained relationship for a long time. My parents divorced when I was young and my mom gave my dad custody. She was experiencing a mid-life crisis. We spent most of our childhood in New York with him. I spent my sophomore year with my sister, who was always my motherly figure. So she didn’t really have the opportunity to do that.

Q: Jason Mesnick claimed that your family didn’t have anything to do with you not getting a rose on The Bachelor.

Naomi Crespo: As far as letting me go, deep down it didn’t matter what I said, that’s what he felt [about] me not being ready at this time in my life. I think outside of this experience, I am ready. I want kids. I want a family. But because we weren’t meant for each other, it didn’t feel right. My parents are crazy - maybe had something to do with it - but I think ultimately he felt in his heart that I’m not the one for him.

A week after narrowly surviving elimination due to Jason Mesnick's concerns about her readiness to settle down, Naomi Crespo, 24, was sent packing from The Bachelor on Monday night's episode after a lackluster hometown visit.

"I would've moved to Seattle in a heartbeat. It sucked that the reasons that I gave him that I don't wanna go home are the reasons I'm going home," she said.

"I put myself out there, and I'm glad I did, but go figure, I finally admit that I'm falling in love and the next thing I know, I'm going home."

"I want to have a family I want my kids to have one place to call home. I really did think that it might be here I never wanted to have my heart broken again. I never wanted to feel the way I do right now," Naomi Crespo added.

The young, fun-loving flight attendant from California had plenty more to say about her ouster from The Bachelor as she tried to rationalize what happened.

"I think Jason letting me go was actually a blessing in disguise," she said.
