When Danielle Lombard made her grand entrance on Bachelor in Paradise, she wore a light blue dress with a really low neckline and two thigh-high leg slits. It made an impression, but the look was not her first choice. As she revealed to Claudia and Jackie Oshry of The Morning Breath on Monday, Lombard would have preferred to wear a “cute swimsuit and jeans … or a romper” — but, she said, “that wasn’t an option.”

Lombard insinuated that producers wanted her to wear something a bit more revealing than her ideas. She would have preferred to save the blue dress for a date or a rose ceremony.
