The girls of Bachelor Canada might have had their official Women Tell All last week, but we’re having ours now—and it’s WAY juicier. Ahead of the big finale (which airs December 20, you guys, so *don’t* miss it!) we chatted with a few of the women Chris Leroux sent packin’ during his season—including the lovable Meghan and the v. v. chatty Catie—about their Bachelor Canada journeys. The girls spilled allll the deets on house drama—we obv made them choose between which villain was worse, Shanti or Brittany M.— they got real about their feelings for Chris and, spoiler alert, a few of them weren’t even that into him!

During your very last cocktail party, Mikaela was that girl who stole Chris away even though she already had a rose. How did you feel about that?
Honestly, I didn’t feel too great about it. I was put off by it, but you’re here not really to make friends, you’re here to see if you have this potential with Chris and this connection. Looking back now, I understand that she had to do what she had to do at the risk of losing some of the relationships that we’d made. But, we all understand, most of us are pretty rational people. So, kudos to her for doing that.
Let’s back up to that first night—what were your initial thoughts on Chris when you got out of limo?
Well, I said in the limo that I was super nervous and when saw Chris for the first time, I was actually a little bit disappointed. And so at that time I was I was like ‘Well, he’s cute, if not ideally my type’ but I was hopeful because once you get to know someone, they grow on you. But that never happened.
Let’s talk about house drama. This season’s two crowned villains were Brittany M. and Shanti. So we *have* to ask—who was worse?
Shanti was legitimately evil… In my opinion, from what I’ve seen, she needed some help there. But with Brittany M., she has her own agenda and is a bit of a drama queen and just a little bit phony, so I would say I’d rather have Brittany M. than Shanti. It just felt safer with Brittany M. than Shanti in the house.
What would you say is the worst thing about living in the same house with 20 girls?
The worst thing is sharing the same bathroom. I don’t regret it at all, I’m actually grateful for the friendships that I’ve made on that show. It wasn’t too bad so long as you stayed away from all that drama.
You all seemed to get really close during your time on the show. Who were your closest friends that you’ll definitely stay in touch with?
Most of us stay in touch with each other. I really liked Mikaela, Lara and Lisa. And I stay in touch with a lot of them.
Do you have any regrets from your time on the show?
No, the only regret I would have is that I wasn’t myself. I felt like I wasn’t myself on the show. So sometimes I wish I would have stepped up a little bit more, but I didn’t. And I think that has to do with the fact that I wasn’t really attracted to Chris, so that would be the only regret, but other than that you know I had a really great time.
