‘Bachelor’ Villain Krystal Reacts to Being Called a ‘Sociopath’

Dun dun dun! On Sunday, the women of Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s season of The Bachelor reunited to get their final word in on all the drama — and that villain of a contestant Krystal Nielson

Krystal, a personal trainer from San Diego, rubbed a lot of the girls the wrong way and annoyed viewers with her endless raspy speeches. The seemingly conniving bachelorette was blasted by the other women in the house and even called a "sociopath" by contestant Caroline Lunny.

During an interview with E! News after the special, Krystal admitted facing the backlash has been hard. 


"I've never peen put in this position to be so publicly criticized for my actions and my character and it got to me," Krystal said. "I took a month off of work after filming. I couldn't be who I needed to be for people to empower the because I was so disempowered myself. It was really tough." 

When asked about being called a sociopath, Krystal admitted that she has a range of emotions. 

"People were upset and I feel and understand,” she told E! News. “I say s--ty things when I was heated and upset. Like, I get it...I'm a rainbow of emotions, I'll own it!"
