Is one man's eliminee another 25 men's Bachelorette?!

A frontrunner from the first moment she stepped out of the limo, Britt Nilsson left The Bachelor in one of the most dramatic moments of the season on Monday. While she had originally packed her bags and planned on leaving, Chris Soules ended up sending Britt home after hearing that she didn't like his hometown of Arlington, Iowa, from Carly.

And during a video-chat with Bachelor super-fan/one-time guest host Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Britt revealed she found out about Carly's betrayal while watching the episode. "I did not find out until I was watching the playback and that was not fun."

So was Britt happy to see Chris eliminate Carly in the same episode she went home? "No comment," Britt coyly said.

Britt was quick to defend herself against the claims that she lied to Chris about how she really felt about his hometown, telling Kimmel, "Listen, I told him I was shocked by it, which I was. I feel like I was the only person who was honest about it!"

But something Britt chose not to speak out about? Her chances of becoming the next Bachelorette. When Kimmel told the waitress that his wife and her friends would love to see her handing out the roses next season, Britt's reaction was pretty priceless: two thumbs up!

And when we chatted with Chris Soules before the premiere, he told us Britt "would make a great Bachelorette—we'll see!"

The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
