The Bachelor's Michelle? Not what you would call sane. But at least she says she can laugh looking back at her memorable appearance on the reality show.
Laughing through tears? Laughing as she plots the murder of Jake Pavelka, Tenley Molzahn and Vienna Girardi? Possibly. Hope they have alarm systems.
On Monday night's episode of The Bachelor, Michelle became the second contestant this season to make an exit before any roses were even doled out.
The previous week, Rozlyn Papa was booted off for her so-called "inappropriate" conduct. This week, Jake asked crazy pants Michelle nicely to hit the road.
Michelle basically demanded that Jake kiss her, then threatened to leave because of their lack of one-on-one time, unless Pavelka insisted that she stay.
Jake's response: "I think it would be better if you did leave."
The booted Michelle, a fan favorite, appeared today on Wednesday's Ellen, and told Ellen DeGeneres "I laugh about it!" as she recounts how it all went wrong.
"You have to expect something like that going into the show," she says, which is ironic, as she seemed completely unprepared to deal with ... well, anything.
Michelle tells DeGeneres that she sensed "hesitation" from Jake Pavelka when she asked if she could kiss him - ya think?! - and it hurt: "I was in it full force."
"I didn't feel anything back from him. Why waste each other's time?"
She blames the encounter on the group date format: "It would have been different if we had one-on-one date," she said. "It was like eight of us and it was the whole day and evening; I didn't even get to talk to him until that night."
A fact that she let everyone know on a routine basis with icy glares, near-meltdowns, panic attacks and serial-killer eyes. We'd say Jake made the right call.
Some of our interns are into the crazy thing though. Call us, Michelle!
