3. She Is An Army Veteran
This girl is a talented cellist and is currently studying to be a cardiac sonographer technician. But, what is most impressive about her is that she is an army veteran.

4. Issues of Jealousy End Up Sealing Her Fate With Ben Higgins
On tonight’s episode of the show, Sharpe and eight of the other contestants join Higgins on a group date where they learn Spanish and take on a cooking challenge. When learning the language, Sharpe begins to get very jealous having to watch each girl have an intimate moment with Higgins. She is not a fan of sharing her man, which is totally understandable … as long as you aren’t a contestant on The Bachelor. Check out the cringe-worthy clip above.

5. Some of the Other Contestants Have Questioned Her Intentions
Jubilee Sharpe has a tendency to be sarcastic and playful. When she received her solo date with Higgins this season, some of the girls felt she was as grateful and as “into” getting the date as some of the others would have been. Clearly, Sharpe was just joking around with Higgins and she was more than thrilled to get the date card. Contestant Amber confronted Sharpe in front of Higgins, who ended up coming to Sharpe’s defense.
Sharpe is actually one of the most real and honest girls on the show this season.
