Krystal doesn't like to share.
On their navigating challenge, Krystal is placed on Arie’s team. However, this proximity isn’t close enough for her. She’d like to skin him and wear him as an Arie Suit, thankyouverymuch.
While Krystal bitches and moans about not getting enough alone time with Arie on their group date, Kendall makes out with him AFTER LITERALLY EATING BUGS. Krystal could take some lessons in real insanity from that girl.
Special mention must also go to Kendall’s taxidermied duck, Ping, who allegedly traveled along in her hood for this group date.
Krystal also doesn't like people laughing at her. Or looking at her. Or being near her.
When Arie’s group gets to the oasis first, they all strip down to bathing suits for the hot springs.
Krystal sidles up next to Arie, who dutifully puts his arm around her. Caroline and Tia giggle about Krystal’s thirstiness.
“It, like, feels so juvenile! I just want to be with him and not have three other girls grab his hand!” whines Krystal when the other girls successfully regain his attention. Um, this chick is on the wrong show, then.
Chelsea's impression of Krystal's psychotic whisper wins the night.
But will her spot-on opinion of Krystal win any points with Arie? Nope.
While Chelsea and the rest of the gang are rolling their eyes at Krystal’s ridiculousness, Krystal is crafting her next sly move.
She plans to convince Arie of her sudden feelings at dinner that night. “I don’t even know what to say, but whatever I do, it’s gonna be perfect,” she reflects.
Tia thinks Krystal is “ingenuine.” Also: Tia thinks “ingenuine” is a word.
But it might not be "crazy" that wins in the end - it will be youth. As the gods demand.
Bekah M. scores a one on one date with Arie. “She seems super mature,” he says as they make out in a hot tub.
At dinner, Arie finds out Bekah is 22, which is 14 years younger than his cardigan-wearing behind.
Would she be ready for marriage? Is he too boring for her? Does she still like to eat food that’s not pureed? Arie desperately wonders.
Arie wants this girl BAD, but she’ll probably leave his middle aged carcass before the post-Bachelor press junket is even complete. Bekah swears she’ll stay. “Everyone in my family gets married young!” she assures him.
Arie is ready for early bedtimes and button downs. Bekah is ready for Burning Man. But he gives her the rose anyway, then sticks his fingers straight through her hoop earrings when he grabs her face to kiss her. Proving, of course, he needs bifocals.
Hey – What’s that sound? Oh! It’s 13 women’s heads exploding back at the chateau when they find out Bekah revealed her age and got the rose anyway.
Okay, heads really do explode when Krystal pulls her final move of the night.
At the rose ceremony, Sienne, Bekah, and Tia have roses. There will be no cocktail party because Arie has already made up his mind.
But just as everyone not named Becca/Bekah begins to freak out, Krystal interrupts the ceremony to pull Arie aside, making enemies of exactly 100% of the remaining women.
Her vocal fry is almost only discernible by woodland creatures at this point, but it sounds as if Krystal is begging Arie to keep her because she has a shitty family and needs love.
So he does. Brittany and Caroline are sent packing, both in disbelief over Arie choosing Krystal over them.
“I need to make sure it’s just Arie and I at the end of this,” Krystal tells the cameras after the group clinks champagne glasses. Oh, something tells me she’ll be sticking around for quite some time.
