Cassie and Colton’s drama on The Bachelor divided Bachelor Nation. One alum, Kendall Long, is now voicing her support for the couple.

Cassie Randolph is no stranger to drama. Seemingly ever since she first stepped on camera during Colton Underwood’s season The Bachelor, she was making waves. From her botched sign language to her other reality series and, finally, to her wishy washy behavior before the season finale, Cassie was coming under fire from all angles. Lucky for her, though, she has one very notable supporter: Kendall Long.

Fans will remember Kendall from her stint on Arie Luyendyk’s season of The Bachelor, as well as her memorable turn on Bachelor in Paradise. While many stars of the series fade into obscurity after their five minutes is over, Kendall actually continues to make news quite a bit, since she is in a committed relationship with Bachelor fan favorite contestant “Grocery Store Joe” Amabile.

During Bachelor in Paradise, Joe made it very clear that he wanted to be with Kendall, but she wasn’t quite so sure. A major storyline on their season was how Kendall didn’t know if she could make that final commitment to her eager Chicago boyfriend.

It’s because of this exact experience that Kendall Long is now speaking out on Cassie Randolph’s behalf. In an interview with Extra TV, Kendall explained that the whole experience can be a bit much.

"I left and I technically broke up with Joe so I feel like going through that myself I could understand how your mind is so–there’s just so much in it and you’re so confused, and I think after the show you have some time to think about it. That’s when you’re like ‘oh dang, where was my brain when that happened?’ So I can understand her place."

Kendall makes a really valid point here. Both The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise are filmed at a breakneck pace. You barely have time to get to know the other person in your relationship, so feelings of confusion are pretty natural.

All that being said, Kendall and Joe were able to fight through the confusion and eventually come out stronger, so there’s definitely hope for Cassie and Colton yet. Leaving the show probably gives couples the needed time to bond one-on-one.

While we wouldn’t have been quick to come up with the comparison between Kendall Long and Cassie Randolph, it makes sense when she’s explaining it. What do you think, Bachelor Nation? Is Cassie’s drama making a little more sense now? Or are you as confused as ever?
