She said she felt "highly disrespected" as Michael got close with a new woman on the show.
In the Oct. 17 episode of Bachelor In Paradise Season 8, Michael Allio sparked a new romance with a newcomer to the beach, Danielle Maltby. But while he was all heart-eyes over his new connection, one of his previous connections had something to say about it. While it all went down on TV, Michael’s former flame on the show, Sierra Jackson, threw some shade at Michael as she live-tweeted the episode of BIP.
ICYMI, Sierra and Michael formed a connection pretty much instantly at the beginning of BIP Season 8. Michael opened up to Sierra about his grief over losing his wife, Laura, to cancer, as well as his life as a single parent. Sierra responded by showing him lots of support, and even naming a group of stars after Michael’s family, including his late wife. But that very night that she gave him the stars, Michael broke up with Sierra, saying he felt something was missing between them. After that, Sierra decided to leave Paradise rather than try to date someone else or watch Michael find someone new.
Cut to the cocktail party before the next rose ceremony, when Michael was in danger of leaving because there was no one to give him a rose. Just when he seemed to have lost all hope, Danielle Maltby entered the beach. As she hit the sand, Michael admitted he had “a little bit of history” with Danielle and was excited to meet her, which all sounded a little too perfect to Sierra, who did not hold back her thoughts as she tweeted about the episode in real time.
First, Sierra simply wrote “#convenient” when Danielle and Michael paired up, and then, “He said ‘a little bit of history’” with the monocle emoji. Some fans replied to the tweet with their theories that Michael was biding his time with Sierra while he waited for Danielle to show up in Paradise.
Sierra went on to tweet, “I feel highly disrespected. I’m gonna go meditate.”
Then, Danielle and Michael got to go on a 1-on-1 date together, which Danielle celebrated, saying she’d never been on a 1-on-1 date in Paradise before. (She did, however, have one on The Bachelor, even if did end horribly.) Meanwhile, Sierra pointed out that she has never gotten the chance to go on a 1-on-1 date *ever.*
“I’ve never been on a 1:1 ever… period. #BachelorInParadise lmao eff me,” she wrote.
Even though Michael was the one who broke up with Sierra, it appears she may be getting the last word — and plenty of support from fans — on Twitter.
Season 8 of Bachelor In Paradise airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
