Kylee may have come out unscathed, but her time on the show wasn’t free of drama.

I don’t want to fight,” Kylee said in response to Anastasia saying she “needed a few more minutes.” Following the drama, Kylee went to Zach and claimed that Anastasia was only there to grow her social media platform. She went home shortly thereafter.
