Next, Ben took Tayshia to meet his family. His sister Madeline and a family friend Antonia were there. He said his parents couldn’t be there because of the pandemic.
Tayshia talked with Madeline about Ben’s walls he puts up. She told Tayshia, “He wants to be vulnerable with that special person.” Ben talked with Antonia about how incredible he thinks Tayshia is. Antonia told Ben, “You’re in love with Tayshia, and you need to tell her.”
At the end of their date, Ben was going to tell Tayshia he loved her, but he choked and didn’t. He told the private cams, “I should have told Tayshia I love her, and I didn’t. Now, I’m afraid I might not get a rose because of it.”
Next, we finally got footage of the rose ceremony. Chris Harrison greeted all the guys as they walked in. Finally, Tayshia showed up to pass out the roses.
Tayshia gave out roses to: Ivan, Zac and Brendan.
That means poor Ben was on the outs with no rose. He told Tayshia, “You’ve got a great group of guys there.” Tayshia said, “Thanks. I would actually like to walk you out. I’m sorry, Ben. I really care about you, and I appreciated this week so much. I just feel like our pages aren’t aligned at this time.”
Ben said, “I’m not sure what to say. I would’ve liked a different outcome, but it is what is. I’ll be alright. I’m always alright. I’m heartbroken, but I’ll be alright.”
Tayshia told the private cams of Ben, “The fact that he couldn’t show me an ounce of emotion really disappointed me. I was like, ‘Could you please make me feel like these past few weeks meant anything to you.’
This is not how I thought it would end with Ben. I put all my energy into trying to pull things out of Ben, and I just can’t do that everytime.”
Ben told the private cams, “I should’ve of told Tayshia how I felt when I had the chance. Maybe she loved me, and she thought I didn’t love her back. If that’s the case, I f%#kin blew it.” And that was show, guys. Yep, Ben f ing blew it I would say, but he’ll be alright,guys. He’ll be alright.
