Screenshot from Season 22 of "The Bachelor." The woman pictured is often considered the "villain" of the season. She is surrounded by roses, the symbol of choice and validation within the structure of the reality television show. The woman in this screenshot is often considered the "villain" of this season of the reality television program "The Bachelor" however she was also the only contestant who accurately predicted the lead's inability to make a decision and commit and called him out on his problematic behavior. Knowing her reputation I chose an image of her where her portrait references a veiled madonna figure and surrounded her with roses: the symbol of choice and validation within the structure of the reality television show.
