First up, the science of the crazies. Yes, Readers, there is science behind the madness. According to a Huffington Post article, the batshittery you see from many contestants isn't just pure crazy - it's chemi-crazy. These bitches' brains are actually telling them to behave this way. They can't help it, Readers! To them, it's natural.
Biological anthropologist Helen Fisher, Ph.D., Chief Scientific advisor for Chemistry.com, says there's science to back up Blakely's scrapbook of she and Ben's love journey and even Jamie's completely cringe-worthy display of sexy-not. SCIENCE, Readers! Helen says, "The brain circuitry for romantic love can be triggered in two dates or two hours. When a person feels rejected, the brain regions linked with obsession become active," she says, "When those feelings are triggered, you can't stop thinking about a person. You become obsessed." She also says, "You have the same kind of craving like when you crave cocaine or cigarettes... The less you think you can win the person, the hotter the craving [for that person]." So basically, Helen's telling us that these bitches aren't crazy, they're just obsessed addicts.
The HuffPost article then points out that, oh yeah, they also all want to be super famous. So there's also that.
I will personally point out that they also have Producers in their ears telling them, "Crazy sells, doll face. Don't you want to be famous just like Ali Fedotowsky? Sure you do. Now here's a scrapbook, fill it up and show it to Ben. There's a good girl."
