‘The Bachelor’ Cast-Off Caila Quinn Reveals Her ‘One Regret’ About Ben Higgins, But Will She Be The Next ‘Bachelorette’?
In an emotional lead up to The Bachelor’s season finale, Ben Higgins narrowed his field of choices down to two women. While he professed his love for Lauren Bushnell and JoJo Fletcher, Higgins made the difficult decision to let Caila Quinn go. While Quinn harbors no ill feelings towards Higgins, she does have one regret about her time on the show.
According to Yahoo, Quinn’s biggest regret centers on her decision to keep her feelings suppressed early on in the show. Considering how Higgins likes to move quickly, Quinn wished she would have expressed her emotions as soon as she felt them.
“I do have one regret,” she shared in the interview. “And it’s that I didn’t get things off my chest as soon as I felt them because I kind of held things in which made me sound confusing — like I sound right now. Ben just doesn’t waste any time, and I feel like I should’ve done that as well.”
That being said, Quinn is still more than happy with her performance on the show, despite suffering heartache in the end. Although she didn’t do great during the recent round of fantasy dates, Quinn was appreciative of the experience and getting to know Higgins on a personal level.
“I felt like that time we had did progress our relationship. And I’m not dumb. There are other women there, so he still has to say goodbye to people, and I’m sure it was really hard for him too,” she stated. “So I’m just appreciative that he was really honest with me and I don’t regret spending that time getting to know him better.”
For Quinn, the biggest question remaining centers on her future in the world of reality dating. According to ABC News, many fans are pulling for Quinn to become the next Bachelorette. Is Quinn up for the challenge?
“It’s really exciting. I might do it again, because I did fall in love, and it did work for me. It has worked for so many other people before, and that’s what I really want in life,” she stated. “And so who cares how you meet somebody as long as they’re the right person.”
At the same time, Quinn told Ohio that the network hasn’t approached her about playing the lead in the next season of The Bachelorette. Even still, she admitted that she would consider taking the job as finding her mate is on top of her priority list.
“It’s something I definitely would consider,” she stated. “My No. 1 priority in life is to find the one for me… At the moment, I’m taking some time for me.”
Quinn is currently working in the field of software sales and hails from Boston. While she thinks about her future on reality TV, Quinn is gearing up for a little relaxation and travel following her part in The Bachelor. Hopefully, an announcement will soon be made concerning the next season of The Bachelorette.
Meanwhile, The Bachelor is currently gearing up for its highly anticipated finale. In the latest episode, Higgins told Bushnell and Fletcher that he loved them both, which should make his final decision that much harder to make.
While Higgins is down to two choices, Quinn believes that Bushnell might be a better match for him over Fletcher. Either way, Quinn said the most important thing is that Higgins finds happiness, whether that’s with Bushnell or Fletcher.
The next episode of The Bachelor, titled “The Women Tell All,”airs March 7, while the final episode of the series is set to premiere on March 14.
