Everyone is still reeling from the explosive finale of The Bachelor where Arie Luyendyk Jr. broke up with his fiancée, Becca Kufrin, to be with Lauren Burnham. Some of the ladies of the season didn’t hold back when sharing their reactions to the big news.

But there was still one person we wanted to hear more from. The Cheat Sheet had a phone interview with Seinne Fleming on March 15. Her name was previously floated around as possibly becoming the next Bachelorette. She revealed some things we didn’t get to see like some of the women talking about Peter Kraus, Krystal Nielson’s secret meeting with Luyendyk Jr.’s family coming out, and more.

Here are 11 things to know and more from our talk with Seinne Fleming.

1. She first had doubts about going on the show when watching Nick Viall’s season

Cheat Sheet: So I listened to some of your other interviews and I know that before you weren’t a big watcher of The Bachelorette or The Bachelor but you watched Nick [Viall’s] season. So I was wondering what was your reaction to watching Nick’s season?

Seinne Fleming: Well, I didn’t have anything to compare it to. I think the first episode, the first episode for sure it was like hearing another language. It was like nothing I’ve ever seen before and just kind of seeing how things went down it was definitely — after the first episode I was like ‘I don’t think I could do this.’

Because I started watching the season right after my first casting — because once I went to the first casting and they were gonna have me go to the next one, I figured I should know what I was getting myself into potentially. So after I watched that first episode I was like ‘I don’t know if I could do this’ and then I kind of watched more and more, and like, as time went on, we saw people’s personalities develop and you saw relationships start to form.

I thought Nick was a good Bachelor. I mean he should be a good Bachelor because he’s had a lot of experience with the franchise.

Cheat Sheet: What was it specifically in the first episode that you were hesitant about it?

Seinne Fleming: I think it just seemed very … the first episode seemed kind of like very intense that first night and you’re wondering like ‘why is this so intense?’ like ‘why are girls crying?’ And it makes sense now that I’ve gone through it.

When you first get into that house to try to get time with whoever the Bachelor is is not easy. But obviously, also the first episode is intense. It’s pretty dramatized because it’s the opening of the season. So yeah it was something I really hadn’t seen before.
