Eliminated 'Bachelor' Contestant

Producers Set Me Up to Fail

Then Humiliated Me

One of the contestants eliminated last night on "The Bachelor" is blaming producers -- telling TMZ, they told her to act like a dumb bimbo on the show ... and then broadcast her humiliating rejection.

Kylie Lewis tells us, producers told her to do 3 things that she now believes resulted in leaving the show roseless:

--  They told her to dye her hair from strawberry blonde to red

--  They advised her to wear a pink dress instead of purple

 -- They had her tweet Juan Pablo immediately after they met for the first time ... making her look desperate

Kylie -- who's an artist -- says she had drawn a picture of Juan which she intended to give him to create a good first impression, but producers wanted a lame tweet instead, making her look like an immature ditz:

And as if getting rejected wasn't bad enough, Kylie says producers went out of their way to air her extremely embarrassing misstep on last night's show.

If you missed it, Juan selected another bachelorette (Kat) to receive a rose, and Kylie thought she heard her name ... so she walked up to get the flower. When she realized it was a mistake, she was humiliated, and she's crushed producers chose to air it ... TRANSLATION:  This chick is naive.

The rep for the show had no comment.

Ok she did look much better before that is true. I also am now thinking that they also set up the situation that the girl who got the first rose was to act very uninspired by it all. It looked so fake and she looked as if she were acting. Did anyone else get that vibe?

I would call the hair color in the BEFORE picture dirty blonde instead of strawberry blonde. In fact the AFTER picture looks more strawberry blonde than the BEFORE picture does. Also, you're an idiot if you think that reality shows like this are real. You don't always have to do what the producers of the show ask you to do.

The younger generation has no clue how to handle rejection they all seem to think everything has to be fair and if they fail it is always some other persons fault. These young people better start growing up because nothing in this world is fair.

I watched the whole episode and the only thing she did embarrassing was another girl's name was called and she thought she had gotten a rose. I think whatever acting out she is doing now is making her look worse. Don't go on the show if you don't want to be embarrassed!

That's what happens when you don't stay true to who you are.

BTW, is it just me, but being a red head wearing pink and/or Purple is JUST NOT a good combo. You've just shown how much more of a dumb bimbo you are.

But if she had been picked none of those changes would have mattered to her. Grow up and learn how to handle rejection. Don't complain now because you complied and heard what you wanted to hear when he didn't call your name. Ps. You look better as a red head anyway
