Sports Reporter Bri Amaranthus Eliminated From the Bachelor

Well, this is quite the upset: NBC Sports Northwest reporter Bri Amaranthus has been ousted from The Bachelor after one episode. The combination of a sports reporter and race car driver seemed like the perfect mix on paper (he takes her out to the track, the Game 7 fantasy date, etc.), but Arie Luyendyk Jr. killed our dreams by not giving Bri a rose.

Bri’s main highlight was probably her intro, where she played on the sports angle and busted out a softball pitch to Arie. A unique move for sure, though it was a little awkward as it played out:

Look at @BriAmaranthus with the softball toss intro. Very cute. Great dress. Why doesn’t she ever wear that for DuckSquad? 🤔. pic.twitter.com/lrtW4MXccE

And that’s it. Bri’s done on The Bachelor and we can all cancel our future recordings.

Bri took to Twitter to thank her fans for support after the elimination:

Overwhelmed with love and support right now! Thank you everyone! I will make sure to respond to each and every one of you ❤️ https://t.co/CDXlHBUh1a
