ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) — The latest contestant to be denied a rose from The Bachelor Chris Soules says she is still hopeful about finding love.
“I’m definitely going to be looking for love and just really optimistic about it,” Juelia Kinney told ABC News.
Kinney, a single mom, had previously opened up to Soules about her split from her husband, saying, “I don’t understand how someone can have a child and leave them like that, and leave me.”
Even though she is no longer on the show, the 30-year-old says the experience gave her time to reflect.
“For the first time since my daughter was born I had time to kind of reflect on how I feel and how I was doing,” Kinney told ABC News. “I’m sure any mothers can relate to that.”
“Through any experience there’s growing and healing and I think that, personally, it was really good for me,” she said.
Kinney was one of three women to be eliminated by Soules, 33, during Monday night’s episode of The Bachelor on ABC.
