Daisy Kent was one of the favorites on Season 28 of The Bachelor, but now she’s being slammed by fans for a “cash grab.” Why? Keep reading to find out why former fans are unhappy with the reality star.

From Fan Favorite To Disliked

Daisy Kent was a front-runner for Joey Graziadei’s heart from the very beginning. She turned the Bachelor mansion into a scene from a Hallmark movie by rolling up in a red pick-up truck with a Christmas tree in the back. The Minnesota native grew up on a Christmas tree farm.

The contestant further gained headlines with her heart-tugging background story of illness, hearing loss, and hope. Daisy Kent started losing her hearing as a teenager after a battle with Lyme disease. She was implanted with a cochlear implant months before joining Season 28.

Daisy’s vulnerability and openness earned her legions of fans, but viewers began to sour on the account executive later in the season when she held back on expressing her feelings for Joey. She then chose to self-eliminate before the final rose ceremony when it became clear that Joey Graziadei was going to choose Kelsey Anderson.

Some viewers felt Daisy’s actions ruined Kelsey Anderson’s special moment. Things got worse for the Midwesterner when she turned down the opportunity to be the next Bachelorette. The role eventually went to Jenn Tran.

One fan wrote, “I really liked Daisy. She felt like someone stolen from a Hallmark Snow-globe movie and brought her into our world. But this cheap cash grab? Who told her this was a good idea?”

A lot of Bachelor Nation fans seemed to agree. Check out some of the other comments:

  • Desperate for fame, acclaim, and follower gain.
  • She’s exactly what I thought she was.
  • No one goes on this show to get married. They go to get famous. Maybe marriage is a bonus lol
  • Why would she do this so early on in her career when she’s at the peak of attention?
  • So she’s boring and a scammer?
  • I don’t dislike Daisy or anything, but it’s obvious she’s really wanting the followers.
