    I think it would be embarrassing to ABC to have its choice of "one of the most eligible men in America" rejected during what is meant to be a smooth, highly scripted, and ceremonial end to each show. I agree if you mean that the contestants are classy for telling him beforehand, although even then I think ABC avoided showing other scenes where it looked like Jesse was being rejected (Mandy C and Anne-Catherine rejecting him, rather than vice versa, is an educated guess).

    An ex-con also walked out on Andrew Firestone at a rose ceremony. She was from Florida and had a criminal record for a shooting incident at a public school sign.

    Liz (another bachelorette) actually cried and was much more upset over her departure than Andrew.

    I think that those who will decline a rose talk to the bachelor/ette in advance so that person can decline to pick them. That way, they are both protected from embarrassment AND it's very polite to the bachelor/ette, so that person can have someone else in mind at the rose ceremony. Imagine if the last person offered a rose declined it? Presumably the b/ette would be allowed to pick someone else, but then that person would know that they weren't an original choice. Bad feelings all around.

    So I guess the answer is because people in general are nicer than ABC wishes they were.

    I think you're thinking of Brook. He's the guy she told she was allergic to horses and he got offended. He didn't get a rose that night but didn't bail early.
