That's sad to hear Olivia contemplated suicide and had her sister managing her SM for her (so it makes sense now why she seemed okay and laughing things off when it wasn't even Olivia doing so). Not saying Olivia was perfect on the show, but the SM accounts that were created solely to mock her (one with 50K followers within weeks) were mindblowing to me and garnered more followers than any other mocking account I have seen before.

I am glad Olivia sought professional help and had support outside the show though sadly she won't be the first or the last who gets tons of SM bullying. There's been lots of contestants that have received vitriol and imo it is only a matter of time before something happens where someone doesn't get help or doesn't have support from family like Olivia and many others that have been in her spot have had. I'm glad Sharleen stood up for Olivia (as did Nick and those on AB) and was in Olivia's court - Sharleen seems to have the ability to reach out and support those who are in need.

I hope Olivia stays far away from anything related to this show and never looks back.

So sad. sad   TPTB really push things too far with the "villain" edit.  I think with Olivia the Bachelor editing team were way OTT and really crossed the line.  The whole Franchise needs to dial it back and be more responsible.  Particularly in this age of SM bullies.
I'm glad that Olivia had lots of family support and professional help and has moved forward with her life. She is a smart gal and will find her path to happily ever after.

She really didn't deserve to be treated the way she was by the show. The whole first half of the season was the Olivia show and it wasn't even funny anymore, just annoying. I hope next season there is more than one "villain" for them to focus on, so things don't go so overboard. It's disgusting how they pretend to care about online bullying and then set people up for it themselves in every way they can.

I thought it was too much and ended up liking Olivia by the time she went home. She made me laugh. I really wish they'd care that these are real people with real feelings and not just worry about ratings. no no

The saddest thing is many times it's like lambs to the slaughter and I don't get it.
The age demographic of the cast are so plugged in and have information at their fingertips, yet seem to miss one of the most important criteria of the show-taking all control of the edit out of their hands. It says so in the contract. It's widely out there in the internet and sm how cast is treated.
Yet they don't get it. And I don't get them.

I thought Olivia was really just harmless, a little quirky, but basically a good person. I do feel bad for her because I don't think anyone going on this show expects to be edited that bad. Like Kasha said above, it's not like the info isn't out there, and especially if they have ever watched the show - they should know it's possible to get an edit like that. But like most young people, they probably think it isn't going to happen to them. I wish her well.

I don't know what to say because I never felt that she had that terrible of an edit. It certainly didn't make me dislike her. She was aggressively after Ben, but that's not uncommon. She read way too much into his body language so I guess she seemed desperate. She wasn't the only one who seemed desperate however. I never understood exactly what she did to Emily so I never really let Emily's reaction to her change my opinion of her. The Amanda teen mom thing was a low blow but and I think this has been said before everything they put on the show is something these people have said to a camera or in a location that had multiple cameras that were probably not even hidden. Now regarding the stuff with her breath and feet/ankles. That reflected poorly on the women who commented on it, not her. In my opinion. That people would create social media profiles in order to mock her regarding it is sick. If that's what caused her to be in her zombie like funk then I feel terrible for her. Unfortunately, mean people anonymously trolling the internet are never going to go away.

IMO the show took it way too far with her. Fine, make her the villain, for being the first to grab Ben and not following the bach social norms and cues. But TPBP made mockery of her in every possible show, it was just piling on her. And the 'bad breath, eat some mint' and making fun of her physical features was just too much. Bachelor has millions of viewers, and when you feel like all the bach nation, viewers are laughing at you, for sure it'll get you down.

I know and everyone should know TPBP do this to some contestants each season, and when you go on the show you take that risk. But it still doesn't make it ok from TPBP. They are cruel about it, it's plain bullying.

Jmo.

I also think they took it too far with Olivia, it was too much about Olivia and got annoying. I felt like the first half of the season was ALL about her being the villain and we didn't get to know the other girls as well. She did seem to isolate herself and cause the drama though, of course not deserving of the bullying. But this show is known to embarrass people , so anyone going on this show has to know it's a possibility.

I would have isolated myself from the majority of these girls too. And when the attacks got to her breath and her ankles did anyone stand up and tell the mean girls they were wrong? I didn't watch so I don't know. Olivia owned up to her mistakes, did Emily or any of the mean girls do the same?
