Caila Quinn is speaking out! The 24-year-old software sales representative made it to the top three on ABC’s “The Bachelor.” But after a romantic night in the fantasy suite, her relationship with Ben Higgins wasn’t strong enough to survive. Caila was eliminated prior to the episode 9 rose ceremony.
“I have no regret what so ever,” Caila told “Good Morning America” Tuesday. “I would have regretted not giving my whole heart to this experience and I really felt like I did that and I fell in love. It really does hurt me that he didn’t but I can’t help that.”
She shared a similar post on Twitter after Monday night’s episode of “The Bachelor” aired.
Love with no regrets Warm thank you-s for all of your kind words

For those that missed it, episode 9 of “The Bachelor” was an emotional rollercoaster as Ben took Caila, Lauren and JoJo to Jamaica for their overnight dates. While all three women confessed that they were in love with him, Ben discovered that he was actually in love with two of the contestants. And unfortunately for Caila, she was not one of them.
Caila wanted to surprise Ben on the beach, but she was the one left shocked when Ben told her that he had a better connection with JoJo and Lauren. While she initially accepted the breakup, she later forced her car to stop so that she could get some closure from Ben.
“Did you know this week?” she demanded to know. But Ben insisted that it was only a recent discovery after his dates with the other two women.
Caila might not be Ben’s future wife, but that doesn’t mean she’s closed off to love. Now that her elimination has been revealed, she can now enter the running to become the next star of “The Bachelorette.” And “Bachelor” alum Chris Soules is already rooting for her to take over.

Another former “Bachelorette” and “Bachelor in Paradise” alum, Michael Garofala, also shared on Twitter that he thinks Caila will become the next star.
Methinks Caila just got "the next Bachelorette" exit edit perhaps? Think Willy Wonka but Toy Factory! Roses not golden tickets. #TheBachelor

However, not everyone is a fan. Kelly Travis of Juan Pablo Galavis’ trainwreck season of “The Bachelor” doesn’t appear to be a fan.
If Caila ends up as bachelorette I'm retiring from this show. Swearsies. #TheBachelor
