Bachelor Ben Higgins will face many of the ladies he rejected at the Women Tell All on Monday night, but his interaction with Caila Quinn will definitely play into this season’s “unlovable” theme.
Although Jubilee and Olivia will cause some fireworks up in the hot seat, Caila’s confession about her one-sided love story with Ben — and her comments about JoJo and Lauren — will really get fans talking. Should fans feel sorry for Caila or is she playing up her storyline for her role as the next Bachelorette?
And Ben? Expect his meeting with Caila to be extra emotional tonight. It’s been more than three months since the overnight dates were filmed last November and she’s still visibly upset about their breakup.
In ABC‘s Women Tell All preview video below, a teary-eyed Caila tells host Chris Harrison that it was hard for her to tell Ben she was in love with him and when he told her he didn’t love her back “was really hard” when it happened and just as hard now that she’s reliving the experience.
Of course, spending the night with Ben during the overnight dates episode may have made her departure even more difficult — especially since she hinted during an interview with Glamour that they had sex in the Fantasy Suite.

Now that she’s watched the season play out on TV, Caila made it clear to Chris that Ben never looked at her the way he looked at JoJo and Lauren.
Although some fans may think she is jealous of the two girls he fell in love with, it’s clear that her desire to feel loved back (like Ben) is going to lead her right into the role of the next Bachelorette.
“The way he looks at them … um … I want someone to look at me that way one day.”
Caila’s wish is about to come true. At least 25 guys will be looking at her when filming starts for the Season 12 Bachelorette. Creator Mike Fleiss states that he will make the official announcement on Twitter (soon!), but she’s already been spotted filming in her hometown, so it looks like a done deal.
