Nixed 'Bachelorette' Contestant Charlie Speaks Out

Charlie Grogan, one of the eliminated contestants from this week's episode of The Bachelorette has spoken out, and he has nice things to say about a certain fellow contestant.

The 32-year-old recruiter was eliminated on Monday night's episode, along with Nate and long-haired Michael.

Grogan spoke to People magazine about his time on the show. He said he was shocked to be sent home so early in the game.

I am a lot better person than some of those guys, Grogan told People. I've never been the guy to name names, but there are guys who are fake and who are there for other opportunities that can come out of being on a TV show.

He had nice things to say about Ryan, who is shaping up to be one of the more eyebrow-raising guys this season. He has made some superficial-sounding comments that haven't sat well with single mom Emily Maynard.

The show's host, Chris Harrison, commented on what he calls Ryan-isms for Entertainment Weekly: This week my favorite Ryan-ism was, 'God designed you to be a beautiful woman, so be a beautiful woman.' With gems like that, it's hard to believe he's still single.

Another one who hasn't been so well, it seems, is Kalon, for whom Grogan doesn't have the best words.

I got along with Ryan off camera, Grogan told People. We had conversations that made me feel like he was a good guy. I never got along with Kalon. He was standoffish and was never the guy to come get involved with us.

Sounds dramatic!

But drama always comes with The Bachelorette and The Bachelor territory. The latest season of The Bachelor gave viewers plenty to consider in the form of model Courtney Robertson, who cast her spell on the season's bachelor, Ben Flajnik. She didn't get along with most of the other female contestants.

Even Harrison admitted that Flajnik had a tougher time on the show than previous bachelors.

It doesn't compare at all to other seasons, Harrison told People in March. It's more competitive, darker and has raised a lot of debate and outrage from viewers. Ben was taken aback by the public outcry and the anger he has faced. The Courtney thing was not easy for him to endure.

There's no telling yet who Maynard will fall for this season. But race car driver Arie, insurance agent Sean and realtor Doug are shaping up to be the frontrunners. Sean and Doug did get a huge stamp of approval from Maynard's friends. Now let's see if next week's episode, which takes production to London, will bring more of the magic.
