'Bachelor's' Sarah Herron on Tierra, Sean and feeling comfortable about her arm
Her thoughts on Sean:
"He's 100 percent authentic and genuine. And he has a very big heart. And he's a gentleman. And he's patient. And he has an awesome sense of humor and he's a prankster. He's just kind of the whole package."
On her arm situation and how maybe it helped her:
"I did think that my situation played a role in Sean choosing me for the first date in a positive aspect, because I think what happened was I introduced myself to Sean and he - I made an impression. And I hope that that's why he chose me -- because he saw me as a unique, strong, courageous individual, and that I deserved the opportunity just as much as anybody else.
And I think, you know, to my benefit, I - it helped - it's to my advantage. It helped me stand out and catch his attention. And I - I'm grateful for that. You know, I think [the first solo date] was a very, very pleasant surprise. I wasn't expecting it at all, and I was very honored."
On feeling comfortable talking about her arm with Sean:
"He made it very clear to me that he was [comfortable with it], and it wasn't an issue, and we didn't really need to talk about it, and we could just move on. I think that's awesome that he kind of put me at ease and said you know, it's okay, we don't have to talk about this over and over and over, I like you for who you are, and I think you're great ... I mean, being chosen as the first girl to go on a date just - it made me feel like the most lucky girl in the world. Honestly, I felt so special. And I felt even stronger about Sean that he would consider me to be - you know, that he would consider me for this cool adventurous date, and that he was so interested in me."
On the drama in the house:
"Well, I think actually this coming episode is going to be - is going to be a shocker. There's a lot of drama that happens next Monday night. And I think it's just going to be really interesting to see how it all unfolds, and what really happens, and you know, it's kind of - we're all finally, at this point, settled into the house and we're seeing some true colors come out. I think things are going to start to get interesting next Monday night. And Sean does something to really kind of - to surprise me next week. It was a little unexpected and I didn't see it coming. And it's going to be - it's going to be really interesting for sure."
On Tierra so far:
"I do think Tierra was there for the right reason ... she is looking for love and she's definitely there, I truly think, for the right reasons ... She could be probably trying a little bit harder to make friends and not burn so many bridges in the house. But she is genuine, and she's there for the right reasons. I do think so ... I really did have good experiences with Tierra. I don't - I can't speak for the other girls in the house."
