Bachelorette tonight LIVE – Michelle SLAMS Martin for 'defending' villain Jamie while fans demand he gets 'eliminated'

THE Bachelorette Michelle Young SLAMMED Martin Gelbspan for "defending" villain Jamie Skaar.

On last week's show, the Minnesota schoolteacher sent home this season's "villain" Jamie Skaar for "lying" about her relationship with Joe Coleman.

Following the drama, Martin proceeded to defend Jamie to Michelle's face – which she appeared offended by.

She confronted him for the remarks, to which Martin blamed his "bluntness" on childhood trauma, including not learning how to communicate properly.

Although she seemed skeptical for a moment, she ultimately gave Martin a rose.

Last week, in addition to sending Jamie home, the brunette beauty also said goodbye to Peter, Spencer, LT, and Mollique.

    MESSY MARTIN?

    Following their one-on-one date racing, Michelle and Martin got cozy in a jacuzzi that was right on the car track.

    As they were soaking in the tub, Martin appeared to offend Michelle as he went on about how he could "see" where villain Jamie was coming from before he was eliminated last week.

    She defended her behavior to him, saying: "I'm a strong woman. And only he and I know what was in that conversation."

    "I'm not sure if he's defending him or why he's talking about this right now," she said in a confessional.

    A commercial break spliced the tension but it is unclear if Martin will get a rose and see another day on the Bachelorette.
