Nothing says The Bachelor like pitting three of the only four women of color in the house against one another…
Ben Higgins' season of the The Bachelor is about to come to an anticlimactic end this Monday, but one of the most talked about contestants is still someone who was eliminated over a month ago!
Fan-favorite Jubilee Sharpe was sadly cut from the competition way back on February 1, but she remained a central figure on Monday's Women Tell All special.

While crazy contestants Lace Morris and Olivia Caridi got their fair share of screentime, the 25-year-old war veteran was unfairly called out for referring to herself as a "real black girl" by biracial ladies Amber James and Jami Letain.
Luckily, Jubilee defended herself after the taping, telling UsWeekly on Wednesday that she was made to "look a certain way" by Amber and Jami's pointed questions, saying:
"I definitely was expecting there to be things that I had to answer for and explaining that I had to do. I was one of the controversial people on this season, so I came in knowing I would be on the hot seat, and I was expecting hard questions. I was expecting people to want to hash out things that happened in the house — so yeah, I kind of expected it. But the content that was in it? That threw me off.
I always own up to anything that I do and say, and I did say I am the full black girl in the house, but to me, that's not offensive, and I don't think anyone else was [offended.] I don't know if they really felt that strongly about it, or they felt the need to just harp on me."
Good for you, Jubilee!
She literally didn't do anything wrong, so we're glad she stood up to the girls who were just jealous they got eliminated early — sorry ’bout it!

Basically, what we're saying is we can have a fun season of The Bachelorette with Jubilee or a boring season with Caila…
Take your pick, ABC.
