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.

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

lawsuit? for being told to act dumb? don't think that's illegal. probably just her way of trying desperately to stay relevant past her 15 minutes. it will fail. don't watch the show, but i may have to find a copy of her thinking he called her name. that would be great to see.

Ya anybody who watched the show knows her hair looked way worse on the show than that selfie on the right. She should've never changed her hair.

I probably would have hiked my dress and mooned them all and then walked off the set.

STOP whining you knew that was a possibility when you signed on the dotted line. If you want editing/creative control produce your own show.
