Jubilee was feeling intense feelings for Ben. Her jealousy of the affection that he showed the other girls killed her chances of having Ben to herself. She pulled away from Ben when he tried to hold her hand, and let it be known to him that she wasn’t happy with the situation. Ben sent Jubilee home before the rose ceremony. He told her privately, during the group cocktail party.
