A Rhode Island woman who appeared on the season premiere of ABC's “The Bachelor,” didn't make the final cut on Monday's premiere.

Lauren Marchetti, a former Patriot's cheerleader and the daughter of the owners of Marchetti's restaurant in Cranston didn't get an iconic rose after she told the ‘bachelor' Sean Lowe, “My dad did want to send you a message. If you break my heart, he's going to break your legs.”

27-year-old Marchetti was one of eight to be left without a rose during the Monday premiere.

It seemed Lowe didn't think her invitation to her family's Italian restaurant followed by a joking threat was all that charming. To Marchetti's credit she did clarify that she was only joking.
