Just in case this season of "The Bachelor" (Mon., 8 p.m. EST on ABC) wasn't grabbing the audience's attention, the producers brought back a former contestant, who apparently was so in love with Ben she just had to be part of the rose ceremony. Her arrival certainly stirred things up in the mansion with the other girls.

"I'm here because I wanna date Ben," Shawntel Newton explained to them. Never mind that she was in Season 15 with Brad Womack. She did pretty well there, coming in fourth, so why not bring back a familiar face in this third week? But the girls were having none of it.

There were all kinds of dramatics, including tears, anger and even Erika Uhlig passing out during that rose ceremony. "I think a lot of these questions may be answered after tonight's rose ceremony," Shawntel told the women bombarding her with questions upon her arrival. But alas, no answers would be forthcoming.

Ben didn't think it would be fair to anyone there, himself included, were he to give a rose to Shawntel, and so her attempts to work her way into Season 16 of "The Bachelor" were a bust. It was a welcome decision the the lucky thirteen still in the hunt.

Check back later today for HuffPost TV's full recap of the episode. "The Bachelor" journey continues every Monday at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
